Your Walk With God

Limiting Technology

Limiting Technology

First off, I’d like to say I’m sorry for not posting in so long. March and April were unbelievably busy. I will try to post more often from now on.

Technology can be time-consuming. Believe me, I know. Sometimes, you get on your computer and say to yourself, “I’m just going to check my email and get right back to work.” Well, checking your email leads to emailing your friends, which leads to more and more time spent on your laptop/phone/tablet, and less on your work.

  1. Finish your work first. When you have done that, you should be free to use technology as long as you want! (Depending on what your parents’ rules are)
  2. Respect your parents’ rules. If they say no phone in your room at night, don’t have your phone in your room at night. Both you and your parents will be much happier if your follow their rules.
  3. Set a timer. If you or your parents think you’ve been spending too much time with technology, agree on a time limit. For example, 30 min. each day.

Hope you enjoyed this post!

Walking on God’s Path – 3 Magazines for God’s Daughters

Even harder than finding good books, and maybe even harder then finding good movies and music, is finding good magazines.

I love to get a magazine in my mail box each month. Do you? I’m going to share with you 3 good magazines for God’s Daughters.

Nature Friend

I love this magazine! It has so much in it. It has games, a drawing lesson, and so much more! They have a reader’s issue every year, and for a little more money each month, I think about two dollars, you can add a study guide, with gardening tips, recipes, and writing lessons! They also hide little pictures such as a squirrel and an acorn in each issue, and you have to try to find them.

Nature Friend Magazine

Adventures in Odyssey – Clubhouse

This is a Christian magazine for boys and girls, and it is really fun. It has fun stories, and lots of other things. It also has games and sometimes recipes. There is a version for younger children, too.

Clubhouse Magazine

The King’s Princess

I actually just discovered this magazine, thanks to Madison, but it looks awesome and I signed up for it! It is an E-magazine. It is also free!

Do any of you know of any other magazines?

Have an amazing week!

Faith, Your Walk With God

Walking with God

walking-with-god

Have you ever felt like you’re not progressing in your walk with God? I know I have. Do you ever wonder if anything can be done about it? Well I have an answer for you. Don’t worry. God wants to be closer with you, and if that’s what you want too, He can make it happen.

Of course you’ll have to do your part as well. God wants you to really want it. If you work hard for it, it will mean a lot more to you than if you just sit back and expect God to do everything for you.

First thing to do : Pray. Ask God to help you grow in you walk with Him. Praying is underrated nowadays. It has much more of an effect than you would think. However, God doesn’t want you to ask for help one time and forget about it. He wants you to be persistent. He wants you to want it, and to ask, ask, ask. Here is one of Jesus’ parables showing that we need to ask and never give up.

Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart, saying, “In a certain city there was a judge who did not fear God and did not respect man. There was a widow in that city, and she kept coming to him, saying, ‘[a]Give me legal protection from my opponent.’ For a while he was unwilling; but afterward he said to himself, ‘Even though I do not fear God nor respect man, yet because this widow bothers me, I will [b]give her legal protection, otherwise by continually coming she will [c]wear me out.’”And the Lord said, “Hear what the unrighteous judge *said; now, will not God bring about justice for His elect who cry to Him day and night, [d]and will He delay long over them? I tell you that He will bring about justice for them quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find [e]faith on the earth?”

Second thing to do: Make sure nothing is hindering you from progressing. It might be a love for material things, sin, or having too busy a schedule. Now I’m not saying loving something or someone other than God is wrong. Definitely not. God commands that we love our neighbors and enemies. I’m just saying that we should not love something or someone more than God.

Third thing to do: Read the Bible. I won’t go in-depth about this, since I have already in another post. I would like to say this though: the Bible will encourage you, teach you, and keep you from temptation.

Fourth and last thing to do: Get away. Spend some time alone with God. Find a special, private place inside or outside that you can talk with God in peace away from noisy siblings or TV’s. Lay all your troubles at his feet.

Alrighty! I think that’s all for now! I hope you will think about those things I said…and also have a great day!
