There is a great scene in ‘The Matrix’ where Neo becomes aware and unplugs. So many times we all wish we could unplug from life. Stop the world I want to get off. Yet, when have we taken the time to unplug?
Last week my wife and I had a ‘Wireless Wednesday’, where we unplugged. We turned off the phones and computers for 24 hours and decompressed. Instead of checking emails and latest thing on social media, we read, prayed and talked. It was a time of reconnecting for us and with ourselves. I found my mind was clear and thoughts and ideas came bursting forth like they never have before.
Knowing how liberating unplugging now is I hope to find that freedom more often. I will put time in my schedule to put down the technology and just be. We are human ‘beings’ not human doings.
“Be still and know thatI am God” Psalm 46:10
Find the time to unplug and just be…
