Surprise! It’s A Giveaway!

Good morning and Happy Monday! This is the day that the Lord has made, let us REJOICE and be glad in it!

Reader Tasha Modeling One Of The Christmas Aprons

I’m just so blessed by all of you! I know Karen, Diania, Emily, and Sherry are also. In just a short time this blog has accumulated followers and facebook fans. More than I ever dreamed, that’s for sure. All I knew was that God told me to start a place for a few of us to write, but here we are. All the glory to Him!

I wish I could give each and every one of you a gift… but alas, that is impossible. Instead, I have a challenge for all of you… and it will end with one lucky person winning an apron! That’s right, a vintage style apron from Raising Sticky Hands boutique! There are more options available than what are listed in our store, so I will contact the winner with different options… But trust me, there are many!

So here’s how it will work: We’ll use a random generator to pick the winner. I’ll contact that person after the drawing via email with details of what fabrics are available and for mailing information.

A “Simple” Calling: The Social Networker

Just by being here reading this, you fit into this category. You are reading a blog, which is a form of social networking. Chances are you are on Facebook, Twitter, and other message boards or websites where you interact with others.

How exactly can one minister to others in this venue? The list is long and varied, but we’ll go over just a few… It’s rather similar to the “simple” calling of friendship, but slightly different.

  • When you see a friend or follower is having a bad day, let them know you’re praying for them… and then REALLY DO PRAY FOR THEM. Send them a message of encouragement! A couple days later, ask them how things are going.
  • Invite those in your area to your church. Post an invite on Saturday and ask that they message you for the address. See if they need a ride if you are capable.
  • Write a “note” about how God has blessed you and those you know lately.
  • Worship song stuck in your head? Post a link. If you’re enjoying it, chances are good someone else will also.
  • When a scripture is laid on your heart, post it. It may just be what someone else needs to read.
  • Post prayer requests for those who are in need of prayer. Get the word out that someone needs to touch God and needs a miracle. You can never have too many prayers.
  • Keep your statuses uplifting, encouraging, non-confrontational, and clear. If you feel the need to post about your bad day and are seeking support from friends from time to time, go ahead. But try to have more positive posts than negative ones. When you are angry at someone on your friends list or that is following you, try your hardest not to post a vague update that will only cause confusion. Keep confrontations private. As I said before, we may be the only Bible some people read. When you act out in anger in such a large arena you are only making yourself look silly. (I’m speaking from experience. We’ve all done it, right? Forgive me, Lord.)

It may feel as though you are not making a difference with this ministry, but I certainly guarantee that you are.

What are some other ways that you use Facebook, Twitter, or another social network as a ministry? I’d love to hear your answers!
