Weekly Devotional

Unplug - We just got back from an amazing week in the Black Hills.  We take a week every year to go camping at one of our favorites places in the world.  There are only 8 campsites with a creek running through and nothing but trees to see.  It’s quiet, relaxing and refreshing.  There’s nothing to focus on but God, each other, and nature.  Now, I know not everybody loves the outdoors but this is one way our family loves to unplug.  There’re no emails, no texts, no phone calls, no screens, no Facebook, no apps—just time to slow down, breathe easier, and make memories that will last a lifetime. 

How do you unplug? Do you unplug?  Our phones and screen time can take up so much of our time and I think it’s a great thing to set boundaries when it comes to technology.  Technology is a wonderful thing and very useful but sometimes it can become consuming, a time waster, and even addictive.  I know I find myself going to my phone way too often.  You might be surprised by how much time you spend on your phone.  You can download an app called Moments that will track this for you.  It can be a real eye opener.

I just wanted to give some tips on how you might be able to unplug and be still.  When we’re still it’s so much easier to hear the voice of God.

1. Set your boundaries.  Sit down together as a family and talk about limits.  Our family doesn’t allow phones at the table.  If we get a call or a text we let it go.

2. Use your airplane mode.  This allows you to have quiet time from your phone where no notifications will pop up.  If you don’t allow the phone at the table when you sit down to eat, set your phone on airplane mode so you’re not tempted to check it when a text comes through.

3. Have a “curfew” for your phone.  Set a time in the evening when you’ll put your phone away.  It’s a good idea to have an hour of screen free time before bed. 

4. Don’t leave your phone in your bedroom.  You’ll be tempted to look at it as soon as you wake up.  Put it somewhere else to charge during the night. 

5. Turn off notifications for the apps that you love to look at like Facebook & Instagram.

6. Take a fast.  We like to occasionally fast from our devices.  Sometimes for a few days or sometimes for a week.  We still take phone calls, look at emails and texts but stay away from apps and social media and screen time. 

These are just a few ways you can unplug.  What do you do to unplug?  I’d love to hear your ideas!
