Unfollow Triggering Content

News and social media are designed to trigger emotions and change the way we think. Rarely do they trigger a positive response. Reclaim your power by muting, unfollowing and unsubscribing from accounts that make you feel worse.

“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.”

1 Peter‬ ‭5:8‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”

Colossians‬ ‭3:2‬ ‭NIV‬‬
