Promoted by: Social Networking | Promoted by: God


My social networking world is changing. I do not like it.

Twitter has done away with the chronological posts and instead suggests to me what it things I want to see "while I was away," intertwined with promoted posts.

Pinterest is cluttered with promoted images, about every 5th one, and suggested images it thinks I want to see based off of previous pins.

Facebook continues intermittently filling my stream with promoted posts in between the normal posts, showing me the same things again and again, and has promoted posts in the sidebar.

The digital scrapbooking world continues to try to get attention by promoting with an agenda which only leads to drama.

The world is always about getting noticed.
The world is always about making the dollar.
The world is always about having more stuff.

I'd rather focus on the "promoted by God."
God is always promoting His creation so I can notice His glory.
God is always promoting His followers when they are humbled.
God is always promoting eternal salvation which is the stuff that matters.

1 Peter 5: 6-7 (msg) So be content with who you are, and don’t put on airs. God’s strong hand is on you; he’ll promote you at the right time. Live carefree before God; he is most careful with you.

I LOVE this post!!!!! I am also getting frustrated with social media promotions! I have also hesitated in digital scrapbooking because I am not quite up to the level that I think I NEED to be to do it. No more! You have inspired me to go with what I know and God will make me grow as he sees fit! Thank you!
