As for Me and my Mouse…..

Friends ~

As we start another week, I thought it would be nice to encourage one another (again).

Let us be living examples of how to speak to others, whether face-to-face, on the telephone, or through our blogs and social media.

The world and all its trappings wants to suck us in – suck us in to play the games, sling the mud, and make us defensive for loving our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Don’t allow it to happen, friends. Watch out for those who scheme and deceive.

Remember: We can speak the truth, and we can show love.

Jesus does both, and so can we!

No matter what anyone else tells you, remember it is the Lord that we ultimately answer to for our actions – He knows our hearts.

And it is Jesus Christ, who we aspire to be likened to. We can ask Him for His power – He promises to give it to us if we only seek Him and draw near.

Be encouraged this Monday – this entire week – and reap His blessings and His peace!

Don’t forget who you are……Children of the Most High!

Our God reigns!

It’s really simple – ask for His power – ask for His wisdom – ask for His strength, His love, and His guidance and direction.

And simply ask – each and every time you venture onto social media……………

“Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming. 15 Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.” Ephesians 4: 14-15

  1. I am very guilty of not checking my thoughts on whatever I post on social networks and it gives me the oppressing feeling that I shouldn’t behave that way as a Christian. I have become bitter and rude but little by little I try to put reins now on my click button. God has been patient and I know in time I will be able to overcome this struggle. Thank you for the reminder.

    Check out my blog at http://unrichable.wordpress.com. Thanks!

  2. I understand you completely unRICHable, I stopped following a couple of people on Twitter, because I found I was becoming someone I didn’t like very much and how different my ‘tweets’ were compared to my Christian input. Two different people as it were, and that should not be.
    Annie, you’ve posted another thought-provoking article.

  3. I So agree with this. I have stepped back from Social Media and if I am on, I try VERY hard to think before I type, post, leave etc. Ive seen how comments, and things posted online have been hurtful to others and I really just don’t want to hurt others, or get hurt. Im enjoying Real life much more these days anyways ๐Ÿ™‚

    • You are so right. I scan facebook now, but then focus on this blog. This is where Jesus is (electronically) – at least, in my experience. Occassionally, through facebook, but for me, primarily those few who inbox message me – that’s about it. The rest is junk. Read my post “If Jesus Had a Facebook” if you get a chance. I am thinking of doing a coffee table book related to that.
