Oh my goodness! How hard is this going to be?! I have been challenged by my fellow blogger and sister in Christ, Stacey, to fast social media with her for the next 21 days starting on Sunday the 17th January 2016! What am I going to do? Will I survive?
Yes, I jest! But it will be hard. The whole idea is to spend more time with the Lord. More time in His word. Put Him first over social media because we all know how easy it is for social media to take over a fat chunk of our time. And seriously, how productive is it most times? I know that I get a lot of encouragement when scrolling through facebook. Partly because of who I choose to be "friends" with. I am selective! I do not want continual garbage and negativity running through my feed. But, there is NO doubt in my mind that I spend way too much time on social media!
So, I am going to fast social media, alongside my sister over the sea! If you want to join us I will not have a facebook group to which you can join, because well, that would mean being on social media! But you can leave a message here and I will pray for you and we can pray for each other as we put the Lord above social media for 21 days!
I will continue to blog but only my automated post will pull through to facebook so I won't post it physically myself. I am stepping away from facebook, pinterest, instagram and twitter! I am adding Candy Crush (woe is me) to this list so I do not replace one with the other. If there is enough interest I will start a group on my Whatsapp (its like BBM but broader) so inbox me and we can swap mobile numbers to get that right!
This is my "before" post and after the 21 days I will post an "after" post as to what I have learnt, how the Lord has spoken to me in this time as I show Him He IS more important!
Mark 12 v 29-30: Jesus answered, “The first and most important one is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord; (30) and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul (life), and with all your mind (thought, understanding), and with all your strength.’
I would love for you to join myself and Stacey from She Stands as we put the Lord before social media for 21 days!
