A month disconnected: What the Lord did through that obedience

As some of you know, at the beginning of debrief, I felt the Lord calling me to give up social media.

I saw what the Lord could do for me this month, and I wanted to focus solely and completely on him.

I struggled with feelings of selfishness because of my supporters who keep up with me on social media, but the Lord reminded me that he was calling me into this. While this actually worked out well because the whole month we were without WiFi anyway, the Lord knew what he was doing.

But what the Lord did through that obedience was incredible. He worked so strongly in my life simply because I was completely focused on him. He saw my heart in disconnecting from social media, and he blessed that.

Through this, I have learned that sometimes the Lord challenges us, and sometimes, they aren’t challenges that we want to take on. But the Lord is faithful through our obedience, and he blesses our efforts and our sacrifices for him.

A month disconnected from social media was one of best things that I could have ever done. Be obedient to the Lord, and he will always show his faithfulness and work through that. Through my obedience, the Lord taught me a lot, I became more intimate with him and I found him on a deeper level. I was able to clearly hear the voice of the Lord and more effectively serve his people.

What a good month of disconnection this has been. The Lord is so good.
