What doesn’t go in, doesn’t come out
This week I’ve also been reminded that I used to listen to certain people and broadcasts that I haven’t heard in a while. Lately I’ve been drawn again toward some specifically spiritual podcasts and studies. I realized that part of my problem is that what I want to come out isn’t what is going in.
What I have been listening to is podcasts and blogs about this crazy homeschool mom life. And it’s good, I really need a lot of that encouragement and help. But it’s not really the main thing I want to talk about here.
I have been neglecting a part of me that I need to nourish: the part that finds hope in everyday life through Jesus. I need it, whether or not I blog. But I’m thankful God used my blog to help me see my need. I don’t think He was mad at me for listening to what I listened to, in fact, I think He led me to many discussions that were vitally helpful. But He is gently guiding me toward a healthier diet of auditory sustenance.
I don’t have to completely drop my homeschool podcasts in favor of spiritual messages. I can do both. It is healthy for me to do both. I just need to remember to keep both in the rotation.
