I've disappeared.....

.....from Facebook!!!

For those of you who were following Jeremiah 29:11 on Facebook....you've probably already discovered that I'm no longer there.  I've deleted my Facebook account....for several different reasons....but ultimately because I truly felt the Lord speaking to me ever since I disobeyed and reactivated my account a couple of months ago.  Here were the verses of scripture that really spoke to my heart in a book that I'm reading.....

 James 1:6-8
But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.   Such people should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.  Their loyalty is divided between God and the world, and they are unstable in everything they do.

 Most of you wouldn't understand from reading those verses what they have to do with having a Facebook account.....but for me my loyalty was divided between what I felt God asking of me....and what I wanted!!!

Please....please....know that if you have a Facebook account I'm in absolutely no way being critical of you.  We all have to go by our own convictions....and, I just know that it was wrong for me!!!

In His Most Precious Love....and with mine!!!

  2. I completely understand why you would delete the account. There are things that are not profitable for me either - even though it might be permissible. Blessings to you my friend. xoxo

  3. Congratulations and bless you for being obedient. I too felt that FaceBook was to be a thing of my past. Setting my affections on things above and not below ....forgetting those things that are behind me ....FaceBook is behind me. As you to each their own but I can promise since deleting my account there is a new peace that I have. FaceBook was a time robber for me. I enjoyed the fellowship with so many believers, and the new friends I made but I knew that when it came down to brass tacks...I was going to stand "alone" before God and answer to him for my "wasted time" a precious gift he gave to me ....
