I don't know about you but my girlfriend Tiffany and I constantly die laughing at these auto corrects on the internet😱 some of them are down right naughty! I've even sent my mom a text meant for my husband once (who was not my husband yet) 😰 Point being things are not always as they appear. A loose association would be once when I went to a physician and during the exam she is listening to my heart sounds and looking down my blouse and it had some preconceived notions already and was guarded. She says to me "are those real?" Uh "excuse me?" I reply. Assuming she's talking about my breast. Why yes they are. She says how long have you had them? I said umm...since I was pregnant. She said oh they are lovely. Ok.... I hesitate and look down and she has my necklace of cubic zirconia in he hand. "Oh those?" No they are not real! Haha ! We both laughing hysterically! She says what did you think I was talking about!
I mention this because all week my spirit has felt defeated because I'm coming to the end of my spiritual fast from social media. I've cheated and looked on FB twice. Repented. But so many great things have happened during what might seem silly to others. I've really focused on restoration of some broken relationships. Being present with my baby girl playing hide in seek (I hid in the shower), coloring and riding bikes! Things my obsession/preoccupation with social media had taken from us! There is nothing wrong with social media but it can become an #idol just like a big ole golden calf. Anything that obstructs our view from God and family! The things that really matter!
See how everything is not as it appears!
Don't worship idols! They don't have any power, and they can't help you or save you when you're in trouble. You also must obey the Lord—you must worship him with all your heart and remember the great things he has done for you.
