Why I am walking away from social media for awhile

Why I am walking away from social media for awhile

Written by Debbie Dittrich  |  Following Him

A new knee for me last April and two new knees for my husband, one in September and one in November, as well as his heart procedure in February have depleted me.

Not only that, but social media has drained me with rantings, ravings and hate like an unexpected sip of boiling hot coffee spewed in my face.

The steady diet of Facebook and news have left me glutted with far more information than my mind or heart can hold leaving me filled to the brim with feelings I don’t normally have. Truth is I don’t feel much like myself at all.

The worst part is Jesus…I lost Him somewhere along the way with all of my endless scrolling. I miss Him. Before I had a smart phone I would spend time in His Word and prayer each day. That was my happy place. That is who I am and what I do, in fact, that is what I was made for.

The truth is I have become full of myself and full of the world and full of what everyone thinks and does and it brings me no peace or joy.

For a time I’m walking away from Facebook.

During Lent I will not see the latest posts or even much of the latest news. I will spend more time in His Word and prayer. To become full again, I’m going to have become empty.

Matthew 16:25 For whoever wishes to save his life shall lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake shall find it.

I am ready to find myself in Him. I’m ready to find myself at the foot of His cross.
