Get Into My Book...


Simply speaking.....This is a great day that the Lord has made!

Don't you just get all excited when you wake up on a Sunday morning, knowing that you have the freedom to worship God? The good thing is that we can worship the Lord ANYTIME, but...how good it is to go to the House of the Lord!

I love the anticipation that I feel when it's time for church.....It is Awesome!

Just this past week, I read a church sign that said:

                                         

Get out of Facebook and get into
My Book......God

Sure, this may have just been a sign, but the words speak directly to many facebook users, including ME.

I love Facebook!......(some people do and some don't.)  I love having the connection with friends that I haven't talked to in years.  I find FB to be a lifesaver when it comes to communicating about events that are coming up......dates, times and so forth. 

The most exciting thing about FB is being able to pray with people who have needs, or to Praise God and share it with everyone on my friend page..

Facebook can become an addiction or in some cases an idol....
(Something that takes precedence over God.)

Needless to say.....I want to make sure that reading the word of God, knowing Him and spending time with Him, is FIRST in my own life!


Hope this Sunday is a Blessed one for each of you....

I love that cute little church birdhouse!! It took me awhile to see that is is a birdhouse! One of my friends got so hooked on Facebook that she pretty much stopped blogging. I was addicted to it when I first learned it, but then I started my blog and I don't go to Facebook that often now. It's kind of like the modern times Town Square!

I am not on Facebook,yet,but have heard both good and bad about it.The most important is that we stay focused on God and His word.

Love the church sign! I'm sure all of us would do better spending more time in His word....me most of all!

So agree with you - God, family, work, relationships first and then time for hobbies - like blogging, reading, facebook and so on and so on!! Facebook hasn't kept me from blogging; I just don't have that much to say, lol. fb is also just a quick look lots of times a day and then it's back to other stuff around the house. I do spend a lot of time even reading on computer, looking for resources, etc. It's always good to check if something is grabbing us to strong isn't it. Take care and God bless!

If all people used facebook the way you did - there would be no problem!

I deleted my FB account last March and really do not miss it. Love that church sign! Too true. Hope you are having a great weekend!

Oh Shug.. yes I enjoy FB, mainly for the same reasons you do. I try to repost some scripture each day so others will also get His word in their lives.

I too love SONdays and having the freedom to go to church and hear the word.

Blessings...
