Day 5 of 31: Isolation

I stink at technology. Some might say it's a generational thing but I'm NOT "old" so I'm rejecting that explanation. If anything is true, I'm just impatient. 

One day after posting for #adifferentmarch it seemed quiet... too quiet. No likes, shares. I thought I must've really missed the mark. Maybe I'm the only one who struggles with this stuff.  A little more time passed with still no activity so I asked some friends if they had read it. They said it wasn't showing in their Facebook feed.  "What's going on, here?" I thought. I can see it but no one else can. Eventually I saw the little icon that looks like a lock and realized the "ONLY ME" button somehow got clicked. 

Has that ever happened to you? Satan clicks your ONLY ME button? He convinces you that you're the only person struggling. Your perspective is skewed. You don't belong. It's the ultimate stalking tactic. Every predator knows the first step is separating the vulnerable one from the herd. Sometimes he convinces you to separate yourself.

Don't be deceived! The lie of isolation can only be cured with the truth that you are not alone. God is with you. And so is the COMMunity of the women on this journey.

Reflection: What do you need to do to "un-click" the ONLY ME button? Who can you reach out to right now to crush the lie of isolation?

Prayer: Loving Father, Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me. Your word says you will never leave me or forsake me and I believe it regardless of how I feel. Thank you for Your presence. Guide me into unity with others for Your glory. Amen.
(Psalm 139)
