Going Without

A man without self-control is like a city broken into and left without walls. Proverbs 25:28

I know Lent has just come and gone and a lot of people gave up a lot of things for a period of time. It’s a great practice. Personally, I don’t celebrate Lent, but I do celebrate the principle of giving things up for a season of time.

Throughout the year, I’ll notice certain things taking too much control of my life. Some examples in the past have been: Social media, coffee, having constant access to my phone, exercise, the list goes on and on. When I notice something taking too much control over my actions and emotions, I know I need to take a break from it.

It can be a hard thing to go without something for a period of time. For me, I just came back from a blogging and social media break. Going from blogging daily, to not blogging for two weeks was hard on me, but it was great for me!

I would just challenge you with one question today: What do you need to go without for a while?

It’s probably the thing you don’t think you could go without. However, if you’ll learn to have self-control over an area of your life, it won’t control you anymore. You’ll be free! And that my friends, is what going without is all about!

  1. So true Bubba! When we let go it is so liberating in the end…notice I said end because in the beginning it can be rough!
