Why I Deactivated My Facebook Account

Why I Deactivated My Facebook Account

It was the middle of the afternoon, not late at night when my mind was tired or early in the morning before I had reminded myself of the Lord’s faithfulness and new mercies. I was alone, but not in a dangerous place. I was in my apartment.
