Last night I had a conversation with my sister regarding our take on Beyonce and the Illuminati stuff. She showed me the disturbing photo of her blocking out Jesus in the photo of him and the 12 disciplines that has had the media in an uproar. Now apparently this woman is beginning to think she has so much money that she can buy her way into heaven.
-sorry boo! It don’t work like that, when the day of judgement comes we will relinquish our earthly possessions and all be on one accord as to what monetary and material things we have had on this earth. Yes YOU too Ms. Beyonce!!
But its not my place to judge, I just hope that some of her worshippers can now pull the wool from their eyes. God strictly forbids the worship of idols and I don’t want anything to do with making the big man mad. However, the conversation made me think for the past 24 hrs as to where I spend more of my own time. What are the things that keep me from having my relationship with Jesus a number priority one time consumer…..and as much as it hurts to say it, what AM I worshipping (gulp)…. The three things that came to mind were social network, my hair and of course lazing around. Time snatchers!
So this year for the first time I will be participating in the Daniel fast with her for 21 days. From my understanding, I will be eating only fruit,veggies, and fish; as well as eliminating some of my biggest distractions from my daily life. During this time I will invest in reading my bible and building a stronger relationship with God.
I am hoping this time of dedication can bring clarity, healthy habits and rid my mind of any uncanny desires that get in the way of my faith. I am also hoping this gives me a better understanding of Gods voice and his purpose for me,as well as ways that I can uses social media to glorify my father.
