Here I just post for you to find me on Facebook and Saturday I decided I needed to de-activate my account and take a break.
This break was a couple weeks, maybe a couple of months, okay, maybe a couple of years in the making.
At times I find myself wrapped up in drama by what is posted on Facebook. I see posts from people who I think, "Don't they know better." "Don't they see how they are being entertained by worthless noise!?"
Then I feel judgmental and I don't want to be prideful.
So I have unsubscribed to so many people to just avoid that critical heart which comes way too easily for me. (Yes, it's my issues to work on!)
But last week a photo was circulated that was just "worthless chaff", but it seemed I was alone in thinking the picture was not funny at all.
My heart just broke as this picture was shared by many and people just "LOL" at it.
This picture was not God-glorifying, but glorified self. It was a slam on male/female relationships and it did, in no way lead people to the cross, but to self.
But I felt like I was being too sensitive, perhaps.
So I took a Facebook break to re-calibrate my heart. To decided if I am "in a Christian bubble" or if I am "guarding my heart"?
I desire deeply to be a "tree firmly planted" that is guided and directed soloing by the Word of God. I want the smile of God on my face. I want to please Him.
I am still tweeting, I find twitter to be a bit safer and not filled with as much useless posts: https://twitter.com/HeatherArnel
I'd love your thoughts! Really! Share away!
