Technology is a large part of our society today. But how can we set boundaries so it becomes a blessing to our family rather than a problem?

How often do you scroll Facebook just CONSUMING? I'm so guilty of this…until lately…. I've been super blessed by…
I deleted my Facebook app on Saturday. The past week has been uncertain and downright frightening at times, and I needed to distance myself from what people (sometimes thoughtlessly) say on social media. It’s been a good last couple days, taking a break from Facebook. For the first day, I found myself constantly (and mindlessly) reaching to click on that app to open it. When it wasn’t there, it was a reminder to pray for God to use the past week for His glory, and that somehow, something good would come of all this. I’m not deleting my Facebook, in fact, I’m planning to get on there later today for a few minutes. But I’m not going to re-download the app to my phone for some time here. If I want to get on Facebook, I’m going to have to be very intentional about it and use my laptop. Not having Facebook easily accessible has reminded me to keep it in its place in my life. I will not allow my life to be dictated by what people say on that app, and I will not allow my self-worth to come from what I see people do/not do on that or any other app. Don’t let social media take over your life, friend. It’s just not worth it. ❤️
