A little snippet of why I left social media and why I'm back

"Seek the Lord while He made be found;
Call upon Him while He is near"
-Isaiah 55:6

The Lord put heavily on my heart to step away from the online world 2 years ago. I closed my FB account but kept IG for another year until the Lord again put it on my heart to step away from it all for a season.  Partial obedience is still disobedience. So I shut it all down, knowing that the Lord was calling me to seek Him like I've never sought Him before. I needed to close the distractions and set my heart, my thoughts, and my voice towards Jesus. In the last year the Lord has done things that I thought were impossible. Things I had lost hope in, He restored. In my years of crying out to Him, wondering if my requests stopped somehow at heaven's gates, He proved to me that, not only did He hears them all but He was with me in my darkest moments. I've learned more depths of the love of Christ in pain than in any other moments of life. I share this to say that if any of you reading this feel like your prayers aren't being heard, or you're discouraged that you're life isn't changing, or you feel the Lord is far from you, my encouragement to you is to seek the Lord bravely. To put away from yourself anything that would distract you and for a season, no matter how you feel, that you would seek Him. He is so faithful. He knows your frame. He knows your thoughts. He loves you so much. I can confidently look back at all that I walked through and praise the Lord because I know now that He has a plan and a purpose in it all. I can freely lift my hands to the Lord and say, "yes and amen!" because He has and continues to restore and redeem and heal and give hope. I'm praying for each person reading these words, trusting and believing that the Lord wants to move and shake things up a bit in your life. God has moved mountains for me. Nothing is impossible for Him. I've been very prayerful about going back online and my hope is that as I share, I can point you to the Lord because He is so wonderful. 

"To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” - Isaiah 61:3

Hugs to you all!
