Guarding your heart from social media

Hey guys 🙂

So the other day I found myself in a really dark place after looking at some beautiful pictures of some beautiful people I used to know and admire back in the day. On social media, it just seems  like everyone is SO BUSY living their dreams while I’m over here bored, being a nobody! Have you ever felt like that? Perhaps you’re feeling like this now… Well if you are, I want to share with you what the holy Spirit brought to my remembrance as I was in my prayer closet crying (yes, I was crying y’all! Lbs.).

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and
1 John 2:15-17

Did you read that?? You see these people who love the world and who are pursuing their dreams (and any and everything that their flesh craves!).. these people are PERISHING. And they do NOT love God—whether they’re professing Christ or not. And that’s not my opinion, that’s what we just read! So we have to remember that, and like Paul, we also have to forget that which is behind us (our own selfish ambitions, reputations and desires!) and press toward the mark for the prize of the higher calling of God.

I am SO thankful for the gift of the holy ghost♥ What a comfort, and Spirit of truth he truly is.. So with him, let us continue to fight the good fight knowing that our labor of love is not in vain.

God bless you my friends, and beware of social media.

-Brandi

P.s If you often find yourself coveting and fretting over evildoers than it may be a good idea to just get off of social media altogether (that’s what I did). There is nothing wrong with that. You have to do whatever it takes to guard your heart and walk upright.

Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. (Proverbs 4:23)
