“I’d like to share HOW my HH helped me let go of my fear to move forward. Also to share a little about how the hurdle I had to overcome and the blessings He has blessed me with since I was able to let go and moved closer to being His bride. He helped me get over Milestone #3. Fasting Facebook after I read the lesson. I had been a member of Facebook since 2007, before I was married. My EH opened up an account after I encouraged him to do so. I posted everything on Facebook, all of my wedding pics and children’s pics.
My HH spoke to me recently about just coming off of all social media. I wanted to check on previous exes lives to make myself feel better, but in the end, I deleted my Facebook account because I knew it wasn’t benefiting me and I needed to come to a place of not having to take comfort from other people’s discomfort. I realized also that if I kept checking on people who were in my EH life, I would eventually be hurt because I was looking for what he was up to and I knew it was bad for me. I have become so much more grateful and thankful as well as this I can see my EH through the eyes of my Lord. I also am not tempted to rekindle old romances to find comfort. I am in love with my HH.
Dear bride. Please do not try and look at what your EH is doing. Fasting Facebook because you may be tempted to post something that will reveal that you have NOT let go of your EH. Also, embrace and seek the Lord and His will for your life and You will find the ultimate comfort in the Lord. He will not leave you, nor forsake you, because He is not a man that He should lie and deceive you. You will find letting go is easier once You trust the Lord who knit you together and knows you intimately.
Numbers 23:19 “God is not a man, that He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? We can trust Him to bring about the promises He has made.
Hebrews 13:5 “Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Once you Fast Facebook, when your HH knows your heart is His, once you’ve taken the step, discovering your BNN and are using it to be transparent while ministering to other women—that’s when He will use Facebook (and other social media) for good.
1 Peter 3:13-15—
“Who is there to harm you if you prove zealous for what is good? But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed and do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence.” Share HopeAtLast.com
