Hello friends and family.
A little while back I was wrestling with trying to make a decision about what social media if not all of it I should give up. The reason for having to make this decision was because in the last few months I have really gone down a rabbit hole with social media addiction.
So much so that I have allowed it to almost completely destroy any prayer life I had. I have allowed myself to become lazy when it comes to God. Instead of setting time aside each day to read and study scripture, spend time with Him in prayer and do some spiritual reading I was sitting on my laptop or my tablet or my phone just sinking deeper and deeper into a social media stupor. A colossal waste of time. One night a few weeks ago I asked the Lord what He would have me give up. I also told Him out of anything I would like to keep my blog but the final decision is His.
I had a YouTube channel that I had ideas about really putting time into and then of course there is Facebook, Instagram and my blog. I also knew something or all of it had to go. So I waited and waited for Him to respond and this week He did. I put up two videos on my now defunked YouTube channel and, the views had plummeted. A few weeks ago I was getting two, three hundred views per video. I know that isn't much but for a small channel like mine with no niche it wasn't bad. The last two videos I put up, the views absolutely tanked. I think each video only got about seventy views each.
My Facebook posts also have not been getting many views in the last week either. So here I am. I will be keeping my blog, my instagram (which I don't spend much time on at all) and the facebook page for my blog. The Lord doesn't always answer quickly and I think that's for a few reasons. He teaches us how to wait on Him and be patient while doing so and that He will always answer and maybe not in the way we would like but, He will always answer.
