Well, hello dearest friends.
It has been a while since I’ve last been active on my blog or any social media. I remember when I first decided to take a “social media fast” I thought it would be so hard for me and I was convinced that I would be back. Well, it’s almost been two months and I’ve made a decision to say goodbye to Instagram and most social media platforms. Trust me, sometimes I feel totally disconnected from everyone and everything but I believe there’s more benefits to that than anything else…
I’m not saying I’ve become holly and am better than you because I’ve given up something that a lot of people seem to be addicted to these days. Not at all! I’m simply saying that Jesus has transformed the passions of my heart. I truly and honestly simply want to do what I feel like Jesus is calling me to do.
Let me go back to about six months ago…
I was working part time at my current job, working on LLACIE (our online store), working part time on social media and in the midst of work and being a full time mom I couldn’t seem to find time to devote myself to God. Those days when I did find time to read Gods word and spend a few minutes in quiet I couldn’t keep my mind focused on Him. My mind wondered to all the projects I had planned for the day, the pictures I had to take for some brands, etc… I’m not saying it’s impossible. Perhaps it is but it definitely wasn’t for me.
As time went on I started to wonder why I simply wasn’t growing as a Christian… Why wasn’t I feeling Jesus working through me, why was it hard for me to talk about my faith with people around me, why I wasn’t able to be move lives through my faith on social media… Then I realized, to fully serve God and to have Him work through me I had to be willing to show Him how deeply I really wanted it. I prayed for months and months about this until God put a strong voice on my heart, to leave social media. That voice was constant, it never left my mind. I went to sleep with that thought and woke up with it.
I finally said “God, If that’s what you truly need me to do then I will”. That’s when I felt God move mountains in my heart. All it took was me completely submitting myself to Him and following His voice.
This means that the content here on NKDIARIES will change. I hope these upcoming blog posts will be helpful and encouraging to some of you.
Wishing you all a blessed week.
