This Lenten season has been one of the most intense periods of spiritual, mental, emotional, and relational growth for me than I have experienced in quite some time.
But it has not been easy…
It has required listening to God and paying attention to Him as I pray and mediate and reflectively read.
The words simplify, simplicity, and let go are words that I have frequently heard as I have prayed, meditated, and read.
I have let go of my Facebook account. Not an easy thing to do. But the right thing to do. I was on briefly this week after a 30 day break
and I was ready to get off. I felt my soul tighten and I knew that I needed to get off and I did so. Too many words, too much emotion, too much time
has been used there. It was time to simplify.
I hit, if you will, the reset button on my Twitter usage by deleting my first account and creating a new one. Not sure who were real people after awhile and who were ‘bots.’ Like Facebook, too many words, too much emotion, too much “noise.” I have capped my following at 125 persons/groups.
Hard to do but necessary because I need to hear God, and my family, better these days.
It has been worth it. Peace and clarity have started coming back to me. I am grateful.
These are my Thursday thoughts
