A tool, not a toy!

The computer is a tool not a toy. I tell that to my kids often, and very often I fall in the trap as to use it as a toy. It gives me a way to "talk" and be heard. I've asked the Lord to help me to be more quiet, careful with my words and submissive to my husband, but often the blog, gives me a way of expressing .... which is good, but my intentions I need to guard, because my heart deceives me and this blog even , gives me a voice to express only what I want people to know about me. It could give an impression to someone of a life that I do not live fully yet. I have to be careful. My heart loves the praise, and yet the glory is being stolen from the One who deserves it. Let my right hand not know what my left hand does... and yet I feel the need to publish it?... why? to receive glory?, the applause of my friends? to get the reward here on earth?... Or should I really keep quiet, and let my life speak without me having to speak. Let my life be a witness of Jesus Christ, and my words few.

Do I write many times for my glory? or to glorify Him?... Will He be more glorified without words or with my quiet obedience?

The computer is a tool, not a toy, and often, I am using it as a toy, to entertain myself with self gratifying posts, with selfish motives and with the misuse of the time He has giving me.
Do my kids and my family, spend a lot of time in the computer? Not yet, but I do not want that to be my life, so trying to live by example, I have to use it as a tool ... not as a toy. So if I write here not so often.... please bear with me I am in a learning process.

I have always thought of my blog as a journal I share with close friends. I have it only open to those I invite. I love reading your blog and as mothers and wives with such busy lives it is hard to find the time to call each other or have a moment with a good female friend. Sometimes a semi-private blog is a way for us to "catch up"...something our husbands & children don't really need in their lives. Also with distance separating women in our lives it is nice to hear what is going on in their thoughts, hearts & lives...I hope my blog has not been a stumbling block for you...

Norma, please know that I so much appreciate being able to come here and read what you my dear friend are thinking about, celebrating and learning. I miss your closeness even after all this time has past since you moved.
When I read or hear something convicting, encouraging or inspiring I marvel over God's goodness not the mouthpiece.
