So today our Internet has been installed, finally after 17 days of waiting. I am extremely excited!! I know that I totally went over the data plan on my Black Berry. Frankly, I don't care. At this point it's hard to imagine how on Earth I was able to live, not just exist, without Internet. Diagnosis -- Internet addiction. Treatment -- other activities. Cure -- the Word of God. Part of me realized that it's possible to live without an Internet at home but it's not easy.
I am sorry that I did not say it at the beginning, I am a Christian! An Evangelical to be exact. I'm not perfect. In fact I have many struggles. But the Lord never promised us an easy life! We live in a fallen world! But we should never forget that: God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble -- Psalm 46:1. Too often we rely on ourselves rather than God.
I need internet for checking e-mails, connecting with people, checking the news and the weather. However, Internet should not be a substitute for real life. Remember lost time cannot be redeemed. True friends are treasures!
