Let's stop looking at each other and look to Jesus

Friday, December 4, 2015


Our world is changing... drastically changing. It was only a year ago that I got a smartphone and 2 years ago that I got a computer.( I know I am behind the times) With the rise of social media and the platform of blogging, we can see into each other's lives like never before. The problem is we are not always seeing the whole picture and tend to make quick judgements and assumptions. We need a new lens of discernment as we peruse facebook and instagram and blogs; knowing that behind every perfect looking picture of mamas, homes, children and marriages there is imperfect mamas with imperfect homes, imperfect children and imperfect marriages. One picture can not possibly tell the whole story, nor should it. These pictures are only glimpses into part of the story. No matter how much it might look like they have everything together, the truth is no one does. They just might do life differently than us.

I would love for you to go Arrows and Warriors to read the rest of this post!!

  1. Love this! It is so true. None of us have it all together and it is crazy the way social media has people competing to see how put together they do have it. Thanks for sharing with #SocialButterflySunday! Hope to see you link up again this week :)

  3. Thank you so much Rebekah for sharing this post. I am with you, it is really hard for us not to look at those snippets of someone else's life and not think they have it all together. We quickly forget they are just the small pictures, the highlights. Remembering we were each created to be who Christ made US to be is essential.
    By the way, I do not have a smartphone and I just got my computer in May so you are way ahead of me on the times. I feel like I need to preserve my family in some ways and that is just one of them. Thank you for sharing at Sitting Among Friends. I look forward to seeing you again next Wednesday. Just a side note I love the giveaway that I won on your site. I used mt Starbucks gift card to get a nice new coffee cup. Where do you get those great giveaway prizes? Email me, I would love so information. JaimeWiebel@gmail.com

  4. Hi Rebekah, This is a wonderful reminder that our view is only a glimpse! It is easy to fall into the trap of believing it is so much more! I often think the bravest of souls are putting on smiles to be positive in the worst of times and share joy. So glad we were neighbors at Faith and Fellowship!
    Blessings and smiles,
    Lori

    1. It is easy but we have to remind ourselves that everyone is fighting a battle, we just don't always see behind the scenes. Love your perspective! Thanks for your sweet comments Lori!
