Television and OCD
I am struggling with avoidance. There are shows that I am missing on and movies that I wish to watch. I am concerned about this. I making television too important. I now wonder if television is more than an obsessive thought. I believe that anything that takes priority over God is or could be a form of idolatry. I pray to study and read His Word as well as to pray daily. I still have the compulsion of looking up information. It is now getting more annoying and time consuming than anything. I do have obsessive thoughts about television. I do wonder if I am still going to make things better or worse. I don't like what I have done or what I have done. Television is safe for me. Maybe it is time I turn it off or watch safe programming. Whatever I choose to do, I have to keep in mind that my choices may or will have an effect on me. I get drawn to adultery, to movies, and to certain themes. Maybe just maybe I should ask God if it is okay to watch a certain show. I used to reject these shows because of my faith. Maybe I should start watching that again.
