Triggered By the Morning DJs

June 17, 2009

I was driving into work this morning, flipping the radio channels back and forth looking for music.  I settled on a local station where the local DJs were talking about a big concert over the weekend.  They were talking about the crazy crowd at the concert, and then they said:

“And then there was THAT GIRL!”

Before I knew it, I was listening to them describe a girl at the concert who was dressed in a very provocative way.  It took me a while to snap out of it.  The Holy Spirit dropped in and said, “Jeff, you don’t need to be listening to this.”

On this occasion, I turned the channel.

I’m amazed that when the right stimulus hits me, it doesn’t take long to feel my sin nature creeping up again.  I have been starving it.  But when something sensual popl up on TV or radio or the Internet, it strikes a place that was very popular not too long ago.

The radio incident was a good reminder to me of several things:

1.  I need to stay focused each day and keep my guard up.

2.  I need to surrender to God each day and humbly ask for His power to succeed.

3.  I need to be careful of the things I’m turning to on the radio, TV or Internet.

4.  I need to keep filling up with healthy relationships:  God, my wife, my friends.

I hope this blog is an encouragement to you this week. 

I’d love to hear your suggestions and thoughts.  I’d love to hear the strategies you employ each day that keep you in the fight.
