He has helped. He’s affirmed this desire in me, and helped to start changing my heart and days around. I’m please to say that the social media apps on my phone are gone (Twitter is still on there, but I’ll be taking that off shortly). They have been for a few weeks now. And I’ve managed to stay off of my computer more and more. Thought the desire to get on it is something I face each day, like an addict, I know He will continue to help me.
I could sit here and list all the rules I’ve set for myself, but it’s really up to you, and God, to what He would have you do in your life.
I noticed that I didn’t like who I would become, when involved with social media too much. Both who I was online and who I was to my kids and husband. Suddenly the situation online would be my whole focus, to the complete exclusion of my family. I would be short with my man, and push my kids away, just so I could read one more post. Make one more comment. I’m very sad about that conduct. I can’t take those moments back, but I CAN make sure my family knows THEY are more important than anything I see online, or on my phone. (or TV.)
It’s about my priorities, and they’ve been way off, for awhile now. I thank God that He is changing that in me. Without Him…I wouldn’t do it. Couldn’t do it. I wouldn’t see the point, or have the ability to change that about myself.
What do you feel Him calling you to do? Will you do it? If it seems hard, pray about it. Ask Him to help you. Seek His help and He will meet you and help you.
