Notifications

I just checked my blog.
Nope. No little bell going off.
Then I checked my Facebook.
Nope. No little hearts for likes.
Then I checked outside.
I found hundreds of both.


Father, forgive me. I often chase the empty, short-lived praise of man, when your word to me is love.”

“For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man?
If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.”
Galatians 1:10

  4. Such brilliant connections, Heidi, from lesser bells and hearts on our devices to the greater bells and hearts in God’s living room. (That’s what Michael Hyatt calls the outdoors.) With you I ask God to forgive me for too much pleasure in the former and not enough in the latter!

    What’s the saying? ‘Hidden in full sight”. I think the world is full of GOD’s likes and loves but we forget to look most of the time. Thanks for the reminder to look!

  9. This is the most pertinent post I’ve read today, Heidi. At it’s best, social media is still cultivated reality. The beauty of God’s creation is the purest truth imaginable. No pretension is necessary.

    Well done!
