What to Do, by Paula Michelson


Aware that I had not written or posted my Year of 5,000 Books, yesterday morning I awoke intent on doing that in the A.M. However, a call from my friend Jane alerted me to the fact that pornographic spam had been posted on my Facebook page. The drama that ensued before she helped me eradicate it, unfriending the creep that tagged me and my believing friends rallying around me reminded me of the security we believers have. Here I’m using the word security in an earthly way as I speak about the those friends who absolutely knew that I would never do a thing like that! Now you might think they said that because outside of cyberspace we know each other. But except for 250 give or take of my 1,850 Facebook friends we have never met. If you’re wondering why I’m not trying to spin the situation like Annie did at the end of the musical by the same name when she sang, “I Don’t Need Anything But You,” let me share that the good news and what helped me most yesterday was that though we might be besieged on all sides, in Messiah we have the assurance that whatever comes God will use it for good. Romans 5:8 says, But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Perhaps because today is a day where I’m not confronted with unwanted, unwarranted pornography on my page, I’m asking you what would you do, who would you turn to if what happened to me happened to you? If you don’t know you might want to read Gods Word and consider his invitation. I’m praying for you my friend. In fact I’m praying for the darkened soul of the person that might have caused me great pain if I did not have a personal relationship with the Lover of My Soul.

Hi, I would do exactly what you did...delete it and write a blog article about it! We know what it is to have God loving us...We may falter and fail sometimes, but still God loves us...

And if someone attacks us, we can stand strong in His strength. And use it as a testimony...

Best,
Glenda

.I know that we live in a fallen world. How sad it is for those of us who know Messiah to see the way other act, yet without seeing it how would we know what to share and when.
