Most of my readers know that I was banned from Facebook about a week ago. They made it clear that this wasn’t for a few days or even a month. It was FOREVER. I had so many good friends on FB – sisters in Christ whom I prayed with on the phone and looked forward to seeing them online each day.
I had many prayer warrior friends as well. Many days I would post the latest prayer request, usually sent to me in emails from my readers.
Facebook bids me to come back
So, yesterday I got a message from them asking if I would send them a picture of me, preferably on my driver’s license. When I saw that, I thought about all of my friends whom I missed terribly.
I talked it over with my husband. He finally said that I should at least try. He knew I was hurting so badly. So I sent FB a picture of the front of my driver’s license. It has my address on it.
Then, not 10 minutes later, I receive this:
“We have already reviewed this decision and it can’t be reversed” they said.
Now they have my driver’s license and my home address. This was intentional and no one can convince me otherwise.
They tricked me. I feel like a jerk.
In the midst of fuming over this, I realized that Jesus would have me pray for these people. That was not easy until I pondered the many sins that Jesus forgave me for when He hung on that Cross. Those thoughts put everything into perspective. So I prayed.
I’m still on Twitter and I share “How Can I Be Saved?” nearly every day. It’s re-tweeted and I pray that some soul who is seeking truth will stumble upon it and be saved. But since the FB ordeal, I expect to be de-platformed on Twitter as well.
This is not our home, brethren. It’s more clear every day, isn’t it?
I walk around feeling like I am on the verge of tears. I’m sure that I’m not alone.
