“Freed From Social Media”

C2 Renew
 

Lately, I was beginning to find myself looking more and more at Facebook and Instagram. A few months back I removed the audible alerts as to not tempt me to look at Facebook as much because of negativity and distraction. I admit I used the excuses of needing Facebook to promote my band, or what if a music opportunity presents itself and I don't get the message. At the end of the day, I know all these are meaningless excuses in the grand scheme of God's plan. I spend a lot of time on both and today's lesson about Fasting Facebook was right on time. I had been feeling the pull to stop being on Facebook and decided to remove it and Instagram from my phone. I admit to posting pics and being concerned with how many likes I get or thinking about what kind of stuff I should post to get likes, all the while faking like I don't care about the acceptance.

 

I am not friends with my (ex)husband on Facebook or IG, but I once made the mistake about a month ago of going to his page and seeing something that hurt my feelings, so I'd been careful not to do that anymore. I admit to wanting to comment on the posts of mutual friends so he would see it, or hoping he would look at my posts and think about me, but this is all me trying to 'help' God, like he needs my help. Males will try to interact with me through my inbox and not having access to FB will eliminate all of that. I repent of this and praise God for his faithfulness and gentle prodding to put you on the right path. I know He wants more of me and this way I will be able to focus more on Him and my journey of restoration ultimately to my Abba Father and my Lord and savior, then my marriage. He has reconciled me to Him and I know it is His will that I be free from ALL distractions in this season, including people, social media, and television. Even as I type, the enemy tries to bring many pressures to respond to things which ultimately keep me from spending time with God. Sometimes I have to turn my phone on silent just to get time to devote to God and the courses. I am so behind in the courses, and surely social media has been high on the list of distractions. I should have been done by now, but I have not stopped praying.

 

I am thankful that I am now free from the pressures of social media, and I am praying that His grace and mercy will keep my strong. I praise God for opening my eyes to the enemy's tactics and keeping me aware so I can remain sober and vigilant to stay on the right path. Praise God!
