Well, today is the fourth day without Facebook. I was doing great until I was ready to come home from work. I pulled out my cell/mobile phone to call home and I saw a Facebook alert. I had/have one invite! I was happy! Someone cares about me to invite me to something! Yay! I wanted so badly to press on it and see what it was/is and who it’s from, but I resisted that temptation. No, I gave up Facebook for all of Lent — not just for the weekdays, but ALL of Lent. I hit “clear alerts” on my phone instead. I tell you I was more than a little curious, but I know that it will be well worth it come Easter Sunday.
I also wanted to tag someone in a photo that I took this past week and post it to my Facebook page, but again I resisted the temptation. It’s been tempting and I know it’s only going to be harder has Lent presses on, but I can do this!
How is your Lenten journey going? I hope my journey will be better than my New Year’s resolutions I can say that much!
It’s nice to know Jesus too was tempted. I know He can help me overcome my temptations because He overcame His (which were far greater than any I will ever have to overcome)! Jesus will help you, too. All we have to do is ask.
