Facebook Fast

February was my “Facebook Fast” month. Except for one important message I could not leave another way, and the fact that my blog posts were automatically posted to my page and I had to see what was happening, I stayed off of it for a month. As one friend put it “Good thing it was a short month”.

My main motive for letting it go for a month was that it was clear to me that I spent too much time on it. I love keeping in contact with my friends and family that way, but it had taken over and it was unhealthy. I wanted to do other things with my life, like write an actual book and not just one status at a time.

It was easy for me, when I wasn’t feeling well, to sit and read posts and the attached articles on many statuses. I could while away hours over a day.

As a part of the transformation I am hoping that God is doing in my life, I need to really limit my time on the computer for distracting activity. I need to focus more on making good use of my time.

I looked this verse up tonight and it struck a chord with me. I think it sums up my thoughts nicely

.Ephesians 5:16-17 ESV

Making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.
