This morning my phone decided to take a sick leave.
After several trial of turning it ON, I gave up and accepted that I do not have a phone for today, thus disconnected from my outlook, sms, viber and all the other applications to connect with people.
It was a different morning. No mails, no notifications. I went straight to my prayer closet and spent a longer time with the Lord. Thrilled with the Lord’s sweet fellowship. Lately, I’m getting more comfortable in waiting quietly in His presence. After reading His word, I’m spending a little more time in meditating and trying to have more connection with God.
Actually, before my phone shut off this morning, I have decided to delete my social apps. There’s just this deeper longing for consecration so I could hear more from the Lord. It’s been very helpful. I am not distracted from notifications and posts from different people. I get to breathe and choose the thoughts that enters my mind. There’s more time and room for His words to rest and settle in my being.
So going back to my phone, there was a real feeling of being disconnected from my family and friends. I felt incomplete for the day, as if I left a body part in the house.
But there was also perfect peace in my heart, and surrender to yield to that experience of being disconnected. I tried to allow my spirit to connect with God and ask Him what He wanted to teach me on this experience.
It was as if God was telling me that that should be my feeling (and even more) whenever I don’t go to my prayer closet and/or connect with Him. I should feel disoriented and incomplete.
I should keep and maintain my connected with Him. I can lose all my connections, except with Him.
Tomorrow, I will bring my phone to the service center and hope that it gets well. While I also bring my heart and devotion to a commitment to have a regular communion with God. :)
