Social media had me in a bad place

Hey guys,

So the other day I found myself in a really dark place after looking at some beautiful pictures of some beautiful women 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.).

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

Did you read that? You see these people who love the world and who are pursuing their dreams (and whatever else their flesh craves!), these people are PERISHING. And they do NOT love God, whether they’re professing Christ or not! We have to remember this, and like Paul, we 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. Seriously you guys, because the struggle is real!  But anyway, I just wanted to also encourage those of you who feel me in the Lord. Let us continue to fight the good fight knowing that our labors not in vain. Beware of social media.

Your sister,

Brandi

Another scripture that I would like to share with you is, “Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.” (James 1:12)

*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 that. You have to do whatever it takes to guard your heart.
