I am regularly criticized by a particular friend because of the steps I have taken to pull back from Social Media, Radio, etc, etc. My reasons for doing this according to him has to do with his belief about my calling and the Satan's ability to derail said calling. I suppose his arriving at such conclusions is based on his knowledge of Satan because it is not based on his knowledge about why I have done these things. We have never spoken about my reason for doing what I have done... Obviously, I readily dismiss his perspective and his emails to that effect. According to the latest email, "I continue to shoot myself in the foot!" I have never shot myself in the foot! Nevertheless, I appreciate my friend and what he is doing for YHVH's Kingdom!
And so it goes!
Equally, the amount of time that social media devours can be destructive if and when disciplines are not established. I deactivated my most recent page in October 2014 for two months. I went back on Facebook in December after the police officers were executed in New York City. It was an emotional, gut reaction that caused me to reactivate my page. After a couple of weeks I just thought or re-thought the Facebook reality and decided...nah, I don't want to do this anymore.
I also have issues within our family that need to be addressed which are paramount to going forward, or doing anything. Steps are being taken to address some of those concerns as I type this. In fact, I am on a plane to Jacksonville, Arkansas the end of January to visit my son and his family and my youngest child who live there. [Looking forward to meeting my first grandson as well, yippie!]
Un-Colored, Un-Broken, & Un-Ashamed, Kids of the Kingdom regardless of what Satan does or some of my friends think. Yesterday during lunch we celebrated life, not religion. I will rail against racism and antisemitism encouraging people of Biblical faith to stop hating one another because of skin color. For those who hate us because we are believers in the God of Israel, Jew or Non Jew:
Honestly, I really don't give a damn about you beyond feeling sorry for you and your rejection of the Elohim of Israel......
However, if you should want to go to lunch one day due to a change of heart, call me!
