Firstly, it doesn’t matter who is with you but doesn’t talk to you anymore, or isn’t with you in general; who’s following you on social media anymore, or who did but unfollowed. Keep going! The worst thing you can do is getting intertwined in the frustration those apps can cause. That shouldn’t be enough for you to put in the towel. Not taking things personally is more than a trait; you need to practice strength in self-control. Anymore, it’s like I see people on social media become frustrated because they had said something and feel their words meant pittance. You can withstand a lot for being in the strength of the Lord.
I get it. We can say things on social media we felt were an absolute viral tweet or post, but no one cared to engage with it, dm you about it, or like/share it. And it made you feel like, “What was the use in posting that?” It can be frustrating indeed! So, I’m going to let you in on a not-so-secret tactic. With a few words, it can make a difference. In truth, an enteral difference. Just those words you said can be the reason you brought someone to Christ, opened one’s eyes, could have been just what they needed to hear during a trying time, or what you said was enough for one to hear something to turn their gaze back upon to God. Just because no one acknowledged it on your page doesn’t mean it was void. Words have power. “For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires” Hebrews 4:12 (NLT).
God could anoint your words, the way you preach in the form of the words you say, and the influence you have. All of which you told someone can change the whole trajectory of what one thought about God, about themselves, their life, and value in Christ. Never give up. Never stop trying. God has a fruitful plan, and we will not always know it right away. Keep hanging on, and have faith. The best thing I can advise is don’t be upset or let social media defer your goal or your fun time interacting with others because what you said isn’t getting the attention you thought it deserves. Your work isn’t in vain. Remain steadfast even though it’s not an easy thing to do.
