{ Wednesday's Word - Obedience }

Image result for facebook eating time

I'll just get right to the point.
I spend way too much time on Facebook.  
Facebook brings out my nosey curious side.
I get my feelings hurt because of a few certain people who seem to comment on others' posts but ignore me altogether.  
Facebook eats into my time with the Lord. 
I "have" to check out those little "red" messages on my Facebook app before I even pick up my Bible. 

 God's been speaking to my heart about this for quite some time.  My blog has even suffered and I truly try to use it for His glory. We had a bad storm here Saturday night/Sunday morning and it knocked out our Internet connection until sometime Monday night. Because of no Wi Fi, it kept me from visiting Facebook as much.  During this time God did some more dealing with me about this issue and I deleted the Facebook app from my phone.  You'll never know what an instant relief this brought and all day yesterday it was so peaceful and you wouldn't even believe how much I got accomplished! Now, in order to go to Facebook I have to get on our desktop computer, which is so not convenient!

Obedience brings peace, y'all!

When will I ever learn.....
or will I?

Giving thanks for the lack of Internet that led me to obeying what I'd been putting off for way too long!

  1. Thank you for this thoughtful and inspiring post!! I do not have a "smart phone", so I don't have any "apps" to bother me...therefore I always have to go to my desktop computer to check my facebook, etc. I don't keep the sound on either, so I can't hear it when I get "mail". This is the way it works best for me...I choose the time I want to spend here, and try to keep it reasonable. I'd rather spend time outside or reading inside (a book, not the computer). However, I do enjoy keeping up with my friends here...especially in our little "blog-world". I enjoy this space more than facebook, because I can always be assured it will be uplifting and positive. Thank you for being a part of this part of our world. You mean a lot to me, and I always look forward to your posts. I may take a while to get here, but when I do, it is always a blessing. Thank you for being honest and a breath of fresh air!!

  3. Great post today Deb. My oldest daughter and her family got into all that bad weather headed to Tennessee to see her husbands family. The power was out for a day and half I think she said. Praise the Lord they did have water because of a water system that the in-laws had. It is amazing though that when we do not have access to the outside world that we tend to truly think about the things that are more important. I know all too well what you are talking about with FB or any kind of social media for that matter. It's so easy to get caught up in all of it. I found myself checking my messages in the mornings before spending time in prayer and BOY did the Lord ever pierce my heart! Thanks for the message for us today. Love you lady! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  4. I understand completely what you have said about FB...it can be good, and can be bad, and to me, the bad part is taking up my time when I should be doing other things. I have such a small group of friends both here in Blogville, and on FB, that I dont have too many problems. I just delete negative and political posts, and that gives me peace.

  5. Oh how I agree with you...I have certainly cut back my time on facebook, but some days I find myself on there all the time. grrr..no self control. I do enjoy fb, very much, but you can sure get too much of a good thing. I say...good for you...deleting the app from your phone makes going to fb a little bit more inconvenient.

  7. Our internet was down until Tues. night. I was able to turn on a mobile hotspot, and I have unlimited data, so it wasn't a problem for me. I've started only checking FB notifications for my groups for the most part. I realized last year during Lent that I spent waaaay too much time on FB, and with all of the political stuff that's on there, it's better for my health if I just stay in my own little bubble and not read what everyone else thinks!
