Grace and peace on this funny Friday morning Dear Hearts. ❤
I wonder…do you think God has a sense of humor? O, I’m fairly certain He does. Take the Facebook fiasco that’s been going on in my computers for the past couple of weeks.
I’ve been messing with my ‘News Feed’ off and on for a while. Reporting the problem has not helped. Still only seeing one or two new posts from friends and pages on any given day. Changing ‘preferences’ over and over again has not helped. So frustrating! There have been times when the thought that maybe God was trying to tell me something entered my head. Maybe there has been too much time spent scrolling the social media monster has crossed my mind. But…I continued to grab a cup of coffee and ‘check my Facebook’ before doing anything else. And, as you know, a few minutes turns into a couple of hours with no notice of the elapsed time.
There have been times when I’ve felt the prompt to WRITE, rather than pick out a few memes and cute pics, post ’em on Facebook and call it good. But… yep… coffee, a quick post, a couple of shares, and call it good. Then earlier this week the Fb page I’ve used as a substitute for doing what I’ve been tasked to do went wonky, and… well…Bad News
Facebook declares it’s cutting off businesses, brands, and media from News Feed for good. Their “Updated News Feed” Will Make Organic Post Reach Nearly Impossible. Just when you thought organic post reach couldn’t get any worse
The time I’ve spent building a page (brand) there has been a labor of LOVE and so many of you have faithfully followed along. But…Facebook has changed EVERYTHING! And the time must now be devoted to something that serves my passion to encourage, inspire and motivate Christian Women in a positive way.
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good tidings, who publishes peace, who brings good tidings of good, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.”Isaiah 52.7
But today! I think God decided to get my attention once and for all.
Here’s my sign! No posts! Nothing to scroll. Not on my laptop. Not on my desktop. Not in ‘Recent Stories’ nor ‘Top Stories’. Just a ‘Welcome to Facebook notice….but there’s nothing here for you!
O yes, Dear Hearts. Nothing is impossible with God and He HAS a sense of humor even when He’s trying to get your attention. So, okay Lord, I get your message. Publishing PEACE on the Blog. Spending the time where it matters and not in mindless scrolling. I get it! And Thanks for the Sign.
