Facebook and me…

Posted on


 

Good evening, beloved,

Keeping it real over here. What does that actually mean? Seriously.

I’ve become an avid Facebook watcher. Sometimes it is hard for me to read and it shouldn’t, but…

Got up early, went for a run, had a delicious homemade breakfast for me and the kids..bring it on! or…

I love my life. My kid is…

I love my life. My husband did…actually, I did write these posts. It’s amazing how things have changed.

Now, I know if I was in my right mind, ha! I would have a first response of oh, that’s great! Praising the Lord with you..but somehow, I resonate more, right now with…

Had a hard day homeschooling today. I know it will get better but today was just hard. or…

Would you pray for my xxxx? or…

Don’t get me started on all the political ads. Good grief, they will know us by our love. Really? however I feel about these issues, we will certainly not be known for our love.

I am very interested in the Gospel of Christ being spread. Verses in the hands of desperate people, desperate for hope. Resources that have blessed me and my family in these days that rattle my nerves.

I’ve gotten to the point in my health where I’m not driving. Dizziness plagues me. Talking is painful. My neurology appointment is tomorrow. My only outlet for hearing how people are doing is through Facebook.  I ache.  People text me, people write back and forth with emails and Facebook messages. I can pray for what I see.

Where is my hope? God brought this song to my head and it is so true. There is one line that resonates with me today, well they all do but…

My hope is built on nothing less that Jesus’ blood and righteousness…

Matthew 28…Jesus’ final words before He ascended to heaven.

18 Jesus approached and, breaking the silence, said to them, All authority (all power of rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me.

19 Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

20 Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you all the days (perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. Amen (so let it be).

Jesus has…

  • all authority
  • all power of rule in heaven
  • all power of rule on earth
  • been given it all

Jesus has commanded us to teach the disciples of all nations. Well, we need to make them, don’t we? Tell me something, how will blasting, criticizing businesses, government officials help us to make them? When a person peers into our page, what will they be able to tell from our likes, our posts, our pages?

O my friends, o beloved, don’t miss this. As I sit in my quiet house with a cute, slumbering dog, my family is at the AWANA parents’ night at our church. My heart aches to be there. I sit. I am reminded.

Jesus is with me…all the days.

Perpetually.

Uniformly.

On every occasion.

Jesus is with me now. Filling this house, interceding on my behalf before the Father. Friends, that’s the news that should be filling our pages! What God has done for you? Celebrate in the pages! What verses meant the most to you as you studied His Word? Share ’em! Tell us why! Encourage us all.

God bless you. God bless you as you fill your life. Pray as you post, as you share, as you “like”. Let your light shine before men.

Matthew 5:

15 Nor do men light a lamp and put it under a peck measure, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house.

16 Let your light so shine before men that they may see your moral excellence and your praiseworthy, noble, and good deeds and recognize and honor and praise and glorify your Father Who is in heaven.

Burn bright all to the glory of Him who made you. Pray on. Pray on.

    No so sure what has been going on with you and your health, and will certainly be praying for wisdom and answers from the Doctors. Our go-to verse as we have dealt with all of Sean’s neurological issues this year has b een Romans 5:3-5 3Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the HOly Spirit, who has been given to us. Love you Cara. You, dear friend, were MADE to survive the unusual. You have proven that time and time again.
