Find a Quiet Place

And when He had sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone there.
Matthew 14:23

Are you addicted to Twitter, the social networking service that allows you to describe your status in 140 characters or less and subscribe to others' status reports? Even if you're not addicted, a lot of people apparently are. There are plenty of websites now that describe signs of Twitter addiction and how to break the addiction if you are so afflicted.

Twitter, texting, email, the Internet, 24-hour news cycles on radio and television--it's almost impossible to find a place to be alone with one's own thoughts today. And if you do find yourself in a silent place, it's only because you turned off or left behind a half-dozen or more devices that are designed to keep you occupied with "critical" information around the clock. But the information you receive in a quiet place is more important than anything else you might hear. That's because it comes from God and His Word. As our Creator and Heavenly Father, God wants to meet with you in a quiet place.

If need be, unplug and turn off the distractions and meet alone with the Father who waits for you.

Leviticus 11:1-13:44

I don't think Jesus would be uploading a video of his latest video while texting a rebuke to one of His disciples. I think Jesus took time for people and I think spending too much time on one of these services makes us more alone.

Good point Sosthenes. My recent "vacation" from blogging was for the reason of the sudden and tragic passing of my sister. However, my absence has resulted in a new focus for me on this blog when I returned.
