I don’t know what the deal is today, but I kind of feel like we need to go a little old school. Maybe I am just waiting for someone to yell, “Warm it up, Kris.” To which I can respond, “I’m about too.” Or perhaps my old school feelings would go away if I would just, “Stop…collaborate and listen.” Again, I don’t know where all of these feelings are coming from but I do know that they are legit…in fact they are “to legit to quit.”
So I guess I have to do something about it. We are becoming an increasingly plugged-in society and we understand the benefits and advantages of technology and the internet and social media. The youversion Bible app has changed the game in getting the Bible in homes all across the world…but I think sometimes we need to take an ibreak, and go a little old school. Or maybe it is just me!
So for the next thirty days I’m gonna take an old school challenge…and I would invite you to join me. No I’m not gonna ask you to give up your cell phone or computer, so don’t worry about that. For the next thirty days, I am going to get out a good old fashion pen and piece of paper and write out my prayers to God. My hand is getting a cramp just thinking about it. But at least for me I feel like it is time to put some serious thought into my prayers. No more going through the motions…no more empty prayers…no more bored repetition. It’s time to go old school.
How about you? Are you willing to dig out the pen and paper? You willing to give it a shot? Break open the old school Prayer Journal and see where the Holy Spirit takes you…
