Social Media Fighting

Hello my friends and welcome to another Saturday! As I wrote last week, I have changed my post frequency to once a week here on WordPress so I can focus my writing and ideas to sharpen my content rather than just putting a bunch of stuff out there for “views”. I pray that all of you had a great week and now can enjoy some down time with friends and family.

Before I get started, in my https://youtu.be/ru2HgJERGBQ video and in some of my https://twitter.com/David_Fischer71 posts, I challenged each of you to do the following steps each day when waking up..

  1. Before your feet hit the floor, thank God for another day He has given you breath.
  2. Go drink a full glass of water to rehydrate your body.
  3. Before looking at your phone, go think of three things that you are thankful for.

So how did you do? Where you able to do all three? Maybe just one or two? If you have, let me know in the comments below how it effected your day. If not, I highly encourage you to start your day off this way; it WILL make a difference in how your day goes I promise you that. More tips to come in future tweets and videos so stay tuned! Now on to today’s topic…

Man has Social Media opened up opportunities to get our voices heard huh? In the past to get your name or ideas out there, one would have to become a celebrity or politician, etc. Now with the inventions of Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, anyone with an internet connection can say pretty much anything they want to anyone; most times without any repercussion. Agreed?

This isn’t a bad thing in and of itself because in a way it puts us all on the same level for getting our voices (or words) heard and seen. The problem is though that it has now gotten a bit out of control.

Driven by the completely corrupt media (Yes even Fox News) social media has become a place where 99 percent of the time people only report on negativity. That too would be ok as to bring evil things to light but most of the time we don’t even know if its true or not! We post things without researching them all in the hopes to get a bunch of “likes” or “retweets” to get people to notice them. It just doesn’t stop there either..

Once we post these negative stories or comments, then the online fighting begins. No one stops to take in what is written, we just immediately slam back with rude and hurtful comments for the whole world to see; and that is just from the Christian accounts, you should see the secular ones….

Yes, fellow Christians, we do it…don’t act shocked that I’m bringing it up…

Point? No matter what people may say, they are searching for 2 things; Truth and Positivity. That is why the world is in the state that it is friends; you know the old song, “Looking for love in all the wrong places”? Still applies today. People are tired of the negativity, tired of all the evil that is going on in the world. Problem is that they don’t know where to find anything else. Let’s help them out shall we? How do we do that? I will give you these three steps to start..

  1. When you post online, try and keep it uplifting and positive.
  2. People will always try and flood your post with negative comments; you DON”T HAVE TO RESPOND. Let people see the evil first hand and let God deal with them.
  3. Speak Truth! The Word of God NEVER returns void. It is not up to us for the results, only up to us to give the message.

Friends, just like money, Social Media is not evil; only in how we use it. Let us use this enormous resource God has given us to speak His Word to the whole world. Are we not living in the time where quite literally the entire planet can hear about the saving Grace of Jesus Christ? Put away the memes and the instigating comments and share what God has to say; souls are in the balance….

Love and blessings to you all!

Overcoming The World

Picture look familiar? It should, I just used it in my other post. I reused this picture because I seriously can’t stress the importance of this message. (No glory to me but God alone)…

My family has been going through a lot this last year and it is really starting to take its toll. For me, it is making my patience very short and making me very reactive to others. With the condition of the world right now, this is not a place that I want to be in; can anyone relate?

For me the biggest thing is helping others. It just seems that people are completely closed off to help and I always seem to get burned by doing so. So, invariably what happens is I let it effect who I am and I’m in a worse spot then ever before. Then I start becoming selfish and think, “when is someone going to be there for ME?” (To my family that might be reading this, your excluded)

So, this morning I am getting ready for the day thinking, how do I overcome this? I know this isn’t the way God wants me to be. Then, this verse pops up. Like I always say, sometimes our prayers may take a while to get answered, other times it happens almost instantly. Thankfully today was one of those days and so I am sharing it with all of you.

There is only one way to guide your life in the right direction and be able to withstand the trials that the Evil One throws at us and that is to DAILY give our lives to the Holy Spirit and let Him guide our path. Sometimes even more than once a day, amen?

If you are a true follower of Christ, these days we really have no choice. We either give our lives to Him daily and let His Spirit guide our path, or suffer the consequences. The world has become too evil and too lost to do it without Him. Right now, nothing is as important as our walk with Christ; NOTHING. If you think there is you are being deceived my friends.

Make that decision today and get rid of the crazy in your life; replace it with clarity and purpose that only the Holy Spirit can provide.

Love and Grace,

David

Admin Help

Hey again everyone! So short and to the point; I am looking for someone with a strong background in social media to come aboard as an admin to help promote this ministry blog in the different social media lanes. I want to spend more time doing actual writing and let an expert handle that stuff.

So if your interested, send me a message or put a comment in the comments section.
