Where is your treasure?

 We all have treasures -- whether we realize it or not. According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, treasure is: something valuable(jewels, gold, gems etc)  that is hidden or kept in a secret place; something that is very important, special; a person that is valued greatly or loved especially for being very helpful; keep careful a precious or extremely valuable items. Treasures also have another property -- to occupy your heart. In fact they occupy our hearts so much that we carefully chose their place. And when something happens to the treasures, we get distressed.

Well, let's put aside Internet addiction and focus on blessings, shall we?!
I have been blessed so much! I've met so many amazing people and made new friends! When you haven't seen your mom for four years and the rest of your family since you were 18 (I'm 24 now), you can get discouraged very easy! The voice of temptation says that you should take some time off and stop going to church.

Internet is an idol

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!
