This Facebook Life

Scrolling Facebook, we're hit with a variety of posts.

All in one thread, we'll see sad events, funny gifs, or glimpses of others just doing life, which means we're forced to handle everything from grief to celebration in a matter of seconds.

I feel like my life has been a lot like Facebook lately, and I wonder if I'm alone in that feeling.

Between tears, joy, and frustration, laughter has been sprinkled in. I suppose it's always been like that. I imagine it's just more pronounced because of the quarantine. But these pendulum swings of emotion are unsettling. I long for days of just the ordinary.

Philippians 4:6 NASB

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

This verse reminds me that I can't change circumstances, can't even change how I feel. It does tell me I can control how I react, how I deal with it all. Sometimes that's all we need, a simple reminder that even when life may feel weirdly out of control, God is constant and we need only ask for help.
