I remember a time in my life. I was hooked on social media. It was my life. But I forgot reality itself. My mind was warped around the idea of who I can be behind the screen of my phone. But who was I in real life? What was my purpose? What was I doing with the precious time, God gave me?
My school grades were going down the drain. I felt like I was drained. My eyes would always seem like they would bulge out. I was restless at night. Social media is intended for awareness purposes. Whether you are a Pastor, A believer, a business owner, a blogger, an entrepreneur, etc. You are bringing awareness concerning your cause. It isn’t intended to be our lives. Our real lives are suffering at times, and we don’t even realize it.
I had to get myself together. And realize that my focus should be on being a better person. We’re living in an era; that technology is taking the world by storm. Competition is tough, when it comes to building new inventions. Something new is always out! This is our reality. But we can’t be overpowered by technology. We must draw the line somewhere. Technology
is good, it makes life easier, but it can’t be our lives. We can’t focus on making ourselves look good on the media, but we forget to take control over our minds, and crucify this flesh.
Apostle Paul said it best… “It isn’t I that lives, but Christ who lives within me.”
We must remember this world isn’t our home. Now, don’t go live with your head in the clouds, and forget your responsibilities. But God gave you a life for a reason. We are not our own.
Here are some ways to draw the line:
*Spend time reading… “real books.” There’s nothing wrong with kindle or nook. But get the feel of a real book. They might go extinct one day, at the rate this world is going. Or they might serve as antiques.
*Exercise, take care of your body. (I have been slacking, but I’m coming back to it). Put away the Twinkies, the beef jerky, if you know it’s been having a toll on your health. Know what ingredients are being put in your food.
*Stay around positive folks!
*Spend more time with family!
*Seek God for your purpose
