Welcome to this week’s edition of Friday Minute Friday! This week’s theme is “celebrate”. To learn more about Five Minute Friday, please visit Kate’s blog for more details… Each week, a community of bloggers come together with the common goal is to spend five unedited minutes to write on a topic (although if I am in a groove like today, I spend a bit more than 5 minutes).
I have something to celebrate.
God is reviving my heart in so many exciting ways. It’s just so amazing to see what happens, as I lead a more obedient life. Not that I was disobedient, per se. When you have a laptop and WiFi in your possession, it can be easy to allow your walk with God to become more distracted than we might realize.
We have these great ways to use technology to help us grow closer to God.
But sometimes, it just doesn’t turn out that way – as expected.
Motives are good, but the outcome – not so good.
If you follow my blog regularly, you might remember last week – I said yes to letting go of my “main” Facebook. This is the Facebook where all my friends, old contacts, family, etc are. It’s filled with people. But, here’s the thing: I have realized I don’t actually talk to any. No deep connections are being made. People haven’t felt a desperate need to contact me.
I don’t even miss it.
I don’t miss it.
When I left that Facebook (okay, technically I signed out for 2 out of 3 devices), I felt relief. It felt like a job. “I have to be on there” or the famous “someone might need me.” Okay, it has been 2 weeks. Nobody on there actually “needs” me. That would be a lie. A big lie.
So, it’s time to celebrate.
God is revealing brand new truths to me, that I have longtime missed – as I studied His Word. He is reviving my spirit. He is calming my spirit. He is weeding out the bad, and flooding my soul with really-good-and-life-changing things.
The Connection Thing
It took removing myself from my “main” Facebook to understand the spiritual. To understand truth. To begin to trust (really-trust, not self-deceiving-kind-of-trust) God. God is working, and giving me knowledge, understanding, and wisdom about my trials. And, I am just so grateful!
