Years ago the there was a commercial of an older lady lying on the floor of her house and she pushed her “Life Alert” button and said, “Help, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.” It became a joke even though the reality and need of it is very real. I must confess – I have fallen and I won’t get up! Of course I am specifically speaking in the area of social media (more specifically – Twitter!) Here’s my point…today, each individual has thousands and thousands of messages coming at them moment by moment MANY of which are negative and worldly! And I have a voice! God has allowed us in our time to have more opportunities to speak HIS Name and reach farther than any other time in history! Think about that again. Read that statement again. Okay, I know you won’t so I will type it again…God has allowed us in our time to have more opportunities to speak HIS Name and reach farther than any other time in history! GET THIS…God has placed you and I here, right here, right now – ALL FOR HIS PURPOSES AND HIS GLORY!!! (Sorry – soapbox!) So I have made a commitment to be a voice. My goal is to tweet every morning after my time in the Word. All for the purpose of accountability to myself (sharing what I am learning) and to others to speak the Name of Jesus and to do what HE calls us to do! Most people “follow” on Twitter people they like or are friends with. I try and do that plus “follow” other leaders and minsters. Most of the messages that I see on Twitter are futile for life. I have ONE life and I am not about to let it go by haphazardly. So I MUST be intentional! (Have you heard that on Sunday morning lately?) So maybe you want to join me in being a voice too! After all God has placed both of us here. I am tired of the negative and worldly messages. Join me in being a positive, godly voice in the world of social media (I don’t have time to rant about FACEBOOK messages! – ugh)
And if you want you can “follow” me on Twitter – @loggie495
Twitter advice for older folks:
1. Don’t just use it to read other people’s tweets. Tweet yourself – original thoughts.
2. Also favorite other people’s tweets.
3. Retweet other people’s tweets.
All this lets others know you are not just there to stalk or rant! Happy tweeting!!!
