TFTD: To Whom It May Concern
To Whom It May Concern
By: Nicole L. Ellis
To Whom It May Concern,
I decided to text you because it appears to be the only way I can reach you nowadays
It was urgent that I connect with you because I have so much to say
You spend so much time glued to this tiny device
I wanted to take a moment to give you some advice
I hardly recognize you when you don’t have this thing in your hand
Your life has become consumed with how easily you can access things on demand
You’ve become a slave to an object that doesn’t hold your future and didn’t give you life
Your dedication to this cell phone has caused so much misery and strife
Your family and I were wondering if we even matter
Instead of focusing on Me you are consumed with who you unfriended
What does it profit a man to gain the whole world, yet lose his soul?
This is a story that will slowly unfold
How many more hours will you give to that game?
Social media is not a reflection of reality and you are not a part of the hall of fame
Your spiritual life is diminishing
Your ambition is non-existent
Who do you call when you need spiritual assistance?
Can that object heal your body and provide all of your needs?
If your answer is yes, then it’s obvious why you don’t need Me
The reality is I am your Father and your Friend
I will love you today, tomorrow until the end
The end of time when I call you home
I want you to know I am here for you and that I will never leave you alone
I urge you to get your spiritual house together
Study my Word so you can brave the weather
Storms will rise and winds will blow
That cell phone won’t help you, only the Word that you know
Hide my word in your heart
Stay connected to Me and we will never part
Take up your cross and become dependent on the One you can’t see
Take up your cross and come Follow ME
Have you become so consumed with your cell phone that you spend more time on it then in the presence of the Holy Spirit? Have you loss countless hours on social media or playing games? How much time do you devote to studying the Word of God? It’s important not to become a slave to your cell phone. It’s important not to make your cell phone your god. Will you consider fasting from your cell phone? Will you replace hours that you play on your phone with time reading God’s word and creating new memories with your family and friends? I challenge you to take inventory of how you use your time.
