This has been my struggle. And I know it sounds crazy: to unplug to reconnect. But for me it's unplugging from social media.
Unplug from social media to reconnect?! "Isn't that what social media is for?" you might be thinking. To reconnect...with friends, family, important news headlines?
No, I hear Him say....reconnect with Me. Reconnect with the One who doesn't need a FB feed, Twitter or IG account. Reconnect with the One who already knows your thoughts, mood & feelings. Reconnect with the One who gave you those beautiful children you fill up your IG feed with. That's what I hear Him saying to me.
We live in a culture where instant is too slow and more is never enough. Where comparison is constant and keeping up, puts us further behind. I'm tired. Tired of being more interested in what is being posted on FB and IG than what is going on right in front of me. What am I holding onto, or rather, why am I holding on so tight to something that is really, not that important? Fear of missing out? Fear of not being missed? Or fear of actually being alone with my own thoughts?
Ding, ding, ding!!!!! If I stop busying myself with feeds I might hear my own thoughts and not just read the thoughts of others. More importantly I might hear what He wants to talk to me about.
The Lord is preparing my heart to reconnect. He's been quietly knocking and after much disobedience, I'm finally opening the door. I don't know what He wants to reveal to me or what He could be leading me to, but I can't wait to find out.
Where do you need to unplug to reconnect with Him?
I'll leave you with a verse from scripture as well as a few verses from one of my favorite worship songs right now. Both are speaking to me in this season of life and my prayer for all of you reading this is to take a moment and fix your eyes on the One who holds it all. He delights in your presence more than we can ever imagine.
2 Corinthians 4:18- So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
~Take these hands, I know their empty, but with you they can, be used for beauty in Your perfect plan. All I am is Yours. Take these feet, I know they stumble, but you use the weak. You use the humble, so please use me...all I am is Yours. I give you all my life, I'm letting it go. A living sacrifice, no longer my own. All I am is Yours, All I am is Yours. -Phil Wickham's "All I Am"
