{day twenty six} at the foot of the cross I lay down the weight of communication...

Sometimes the Enemy doesn't even wait for your feet to hit the morning floor before he wages an all out attack.  In those moments you find yourself stumbling through the day wondering where in the world it all got misunderstood.  Lost in translation.  

Social media and communication at our fingertips is a blessing and a curse.  All at the same time.

On one hand it allows us to connect with anyone, anytime from anywhere.

However, on the other hand, when we fail to connect through social media because we are overloaded with real life, face-to-face chats at the office.  At home.  Within community.  Well then, it comes back to bite you.  And bite you hard it does.

Full plates and jammed packed days leave little room for remembering it all.  And yet the first hint that you may have dropped the ball or bruised the feelings of another leaves you feeling like a big, fat failure.  Like you are completely incapable of handling it all.

I wallowed in this place for most of the morning.

It wasn't until a text message pinged on my phone that my ear tuned in to the heart of the matter.

Up until that moment I found myself wanting to hide behind my mask of perfection.  My mask that leads me to believe that I can handle everything.  The same masks that falsely makes me believe I can juggle all the responsibility life throws my direction.  And when I'm reminded that I fail {} miserably, I struggle.

Struggle to believe that I am worthy.  Struggle to believe that I am called.  Struggle to remember that I was never meant to carry all the burden.  

But there is a sweet, sweet Voice that whispers encouragement to my battered soul.  A Voice that speaks Truth.  A Voice that reminds me to leave it at the Cross.  A Voice that soothes the hurt and sings over my heart.

When you feel your knees buckling under the pressure of staying on top of it all and making sure you stay connected with everyone, every time, every where, I encourage you to leave it at the Cross.  Listen to the Voice that tells you how and when to speak.  The same Voice that tells you to be slow to speak and quick to listen.  The Voice that breathes life into you with Words of grace.  Words of love.  Words of redemption.  

I choose to tune my ear to this Voice.  For it is the only One that will lead me to life.  And Truth.  And love. 

Your speech should always be gracious, 
seasoned with salt, so that you may know 
how you should answer each person.
Colossians 4:6

What about you?  Do you ever feel as if social media is robbing you of actual conversations?

    i just want to share my experience and testimony here.. i was married for 6 years to my husband and all of a sudden, another woman came into the picture.. he started hating me and he was abusive. but i still loved him with all my heart and wanted him at all cost…then he filed for divorce. my whole life was turning apart and i didn't know what to do .he moved out of the house and abandoned the kids.. so someone told me about trying spiritual means to get my husband back and introduced me to a spell caster…so i decided to try it reluctantly. although i didn't believe in all those things… then when he consulted his gods and cast a return and love spell, after 3 days, my husband came back and was pleading. he had realized his mistakes. I just couldn't believe it. .anyways we are back together now and we are happy. in case anyone needs this man, his email address his spells is for a better life. again his email is or call him no this number +2348163974382
