Dear diary,

I’m making an intentional decision to be off social media more and more as the years go by.

It can be deceptive having too many people waiting to clap when you haven’t done anything yet and too many voices ready to tell us how awesome we are, how worthy of praise – too much demand on an oil that is still being refined, too many character flaws that can interfere with and corrupt the gift of God on the inside. I have also found that social media has made me live life with the programming to post snippets of the best parts of myself:

God forbid that I find validation in anything other than Jesus Christ. He is enough, must become enough for me.

Recently, I have found that the more time I spend talking about intimacy with The Lord publicly, the less I actually practise it in reality. I want to begin to live life fully present with my husband, my family, with Elohim (Father, Son & Spirit) and the cloud of witnesses singing over me. I want to revisit the things Father spoke to me about in 2016 & 2017, when I was in obscurity and nobody knew my name. I want to labor over prophecies and birth them. I want to intercede for my loved ones and for whoever the Lord will bring before my eyes. I want to advance the kingdom of God here on earth and I want the people who are not on the internet to be a part of that too.

I remember those years when I used to witness to cab drivers and random strangers that I met on the road. I wasn’t doing any of those to post on social media – it was a natural overflow of my secret place. I didn’t struggle with as much anxiety as I do now. I just lived my life and my daily meetings with God in the secret was the fuel for everything.

I am returning to that place. There’s work to do and it requires a willingness to submit myself to deeper levels of consecration. I hear God better when it’s quiet and when I’m away from the noise. So I will prioritise and be a better steward of my time. Because what is important and what is urgent are two very different things and God must give me the wisdom to know which is what at every point in time.

  1. Ezinne,Thank you so much for this. I’ve been in this exact place for quite some time also, where I just want peace and calm away from all that’s distracting. And before I read this I had just been asking God to give me direction on what to do next. I believe this is also a confirmation for me. God bless you.

  2. Thank you Ezinne for sharing this. Social media often creates a false perception of success and I’ve noticed that people are so quick to put others on a pedestal. This often leads to a loss of focus from Christ who is our source. I also want to spend less time on especially Instagram and focus on really building and becoming who He wants me to be.

  3. I pray that God, in His infinite mercy, helps you to implement all of this!
    That thirst! I feel it too! I pray we all respond when God draws us closer✨

    God bless you Ezinne

  4. Dear Ezinne, I’m so happy to see your heart beat after the Father’s heart.
    Your faith is beautiful.
    Your vulnerability is precious.
    Your purity is priceless.

    Thank you! Thank you! Ezinne, thank you!

    P.s I know that feeling of recieving compliments from strangers, lol. My heart most times tries to reject it but I am learning this, Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and grew in favour with God and with man.
    Sometimes favour with man looks like this in your comment section.😄🤗


    Thank you for blessing me with your beauty and beautiful words.

    You are loved!❤️

  5. Thank you so much for this piece, ma’am.
    I must return to that place of intimacy, away from the false reality social media has built in my mind.
    Back to that place where basking in the Father’s Love was all that mattered to me.

    God bless you ma!
    And yes, happy birthday in advance! 😍
    I pray God launches you into deeper realms of intimacy with Him.
    May your life become more of a testament of how the Lord loves!
    Thank you so much ma’am.
    God bless you ma.
