Yes, I have deactivated my Facebook account. I know that may make things inconvenient for some of you, but it was something that I needed to do for this season. There are a two big reason.
–Envy – The GirlTalk blog recently did a series on the topic, and I realize that a lot of my envy starts on the computer. I see cool pictures, healthy children, amazing husbands, and I get jealous. Instead of rejoicing with others, I find myself comparing and questioning God with my circumstances. Not really helpful!
– Time – Fb has been a productivity killer for me. It’s another place I feel like I have to check. Carolyn Mahaney said that for young mom’s the computer can be a way of escape. That has been true for me. It’s a way for me find so much stuff that I neglect the stuff that I’m supposed to be doing!! Cutting Fb out significantly reduces my time on the computer!
Due to my current season, I just don’t see how Fb is pushing me towards Godliness and so I took the plunge! But, I have to warn you, I might never go back!! So, if I ever come to your mind while you are on Fb, pray for me!
