What Would You Do

I got back on Facebook the other day.

I’m an older millennial. I remember life before social media.

I can’t stand just having relationships online. Especially if I have your number and know you.

I’ve quit social media. Stopped relationships. I don’t do fake, foolish, or feeling like an inconvenience, bother, or afterthought.

I used to post what I thought were good and wise things. I had my blog linked to post as soon as I published.

People barely engaged. Few likes. Few comments. It frustrated me. That’s part of why I shut it down.

I’ve had a page for a while now. No friends. No ability to be found. I would lurk in the shadows. Keeping up with what I could.

In February I started adding friends.

Then I got some ideas for stuff I wanna do. I needed to make friends on Facebook to set things in motion.

Granted, I’m not the only friend ppl have. And I am up and active earlier than others. Aaaaand I don’t work a traditional job.

I posted the link to the blogs the past few days. I made several posts this morning.

Not a single word was said.

Aaaaand guess what? More mature me is okay with that.

I don’t need adulation, praise, confirmation, or approval.

I KNOW what I’m saying is what should be said.

What matters is that I do what I should do.

The ppl who need to see it will see it.

I just have to walk out this yes I gave.

One waters, one plants, and God gives the increase (1 Corinthians 3:6). It’s all for His glory and to bless others.

Be Careful What You Ask For Cuz You Just Might Get It

The title of this has been sitting in my drafts since 12-19-20. I honestly forgot that it was there until I went to my drafts to finish two other posts.

I have slept a lot since then. I have no earthly idea the context of the thought.

It applies to sooooooooo many things in my life.

The one thing that it applies to the most is slightly apropos. Wisdom. Apropos because that’s basically all Proverbs is and “we “are going through it “together”.

When I was younger, some person in some church something told us to ask for wisdom. I’m a pew baby a.k.a. I’ve been in church since I was conceived. Lol.

I have always, as far as I can remember, loved all things church and God. I took in and soaked up so much of what was said. Both to my detriment and benefit.

So, I asked God for wisdom. What I didn’t know and was not told was kinda vital. Hopefully, the person didn’t hide the ball on purpose. Hopefully, my telling you what I wasn’t doesn’t dissuade you from asking for it anyway.

Experience. That’s what was was left out. In order to obtain wisdom, I had to experience some stuff. Boy. At some point since, I think I said that I wouldn’t have asked had I known. The experiences have been difficult and painful. I wouldn’t change a thing though.

While it was hard to get the wisdom, it grew my relationship with Jesus. He was always there. Just like the footprints poem. Nothing in this world is better or matters more than a relationship with Jesus.

I got what I asked for. But it cost, costs me something. I know where I’m going though. The price was worth it. The price is worth it.

Paul said it best: for I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us (Romans 8:18 KJV).
