You can be silly at Facebook. I like that.
Yet Facebook is also an encourager's dream. On your home page you can read how your friends are going through a rough time and you can, with just a sentence or three, encourage them and tell them you are praying. All on one page. In just a couple minutes you can show compassion and help them feel like somebody is standing with them.
Today, though, I was looking at one of my friend's Friend List and I saw some people who I, too, also know. I thought, "Maybe I should reconnect with them."
But then I got this feeling, this, "No, unh-unh," feeling. And I swear I heard inside me these words, "Leave the Past alone."
Hmm. Leave all the Past alone? No, I was hearing leave those (good, delightful) people alone.
So ok, I thought. You don't have to tell me twice (well, not this time, anyway). I'll just reconnect with the friends You want me to. I respect your knowing the whys and whats of why I should reconnect with some and not with others.
And as for those You, Lord, bring to my Friend List, I will encourage them. And sometimes, I'll be a little silly with them, too.
