This morning I was doing some Facebook catch-up and one of my friends had posted this picture:
The picture immediately reminded me of God’s Love and the awesome gift of prayer He as given us. It was a ray of sunshine into the dark of my early morning.
Intrigued by the beautiful rendering of the bible verse, I clicked over to the connected Facebook page and scanned through some of the content. Aside from a devotional or two most of what I spotted were simple designs of Bible verses. How cool is that?
My personal newsfeed gets cluttered with plenty of negative information. I don’t need to hide under a rock and pretend the world is all sunshine and daisies, but I do need to be intentional about balance. Every negative needs to be counter-balanced with a positive. For every minute I’m inundated by the world, I need to counterbalance with the Word. (The Word of God!)
The Page I visited is The Word For You Today USA, and it seems to primarily contain Bible verses and a few sprinkled devotions. Click the link if you’re interested in adding it to your newsfeed. While you’re at it, add some of your favorite bloggers’ pages. Facebook makes it hard to get these things regularly in your feed (they want us to pay to “boost posts”) so you’ll have to click on the “following” drop down and select “see first” and turn notifications to “on.”
If you’re going to spend time on social media, be sure to be intentional about your time and what you allow into your mind. Frankly, we need to be intentional about this in every thing we take in—music, books, movies, TV shows, acquaintances. Take great care what you spend time with and how long you spend time with it.
It’s hard to reflect God’s light when all we consume is darkness.
“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”
Philippians 4:8 ESV
