It is Freedom Friday
It is a Freedom Friday where I love to connect you to information about the mind bondage that we all are in. We want to start to gain the insight to these systems that have been set up by the world kingdom. We as Christians should follow the Heavenly Kingdom. I follow people who I believe are true believers in the words that Jesus speaks. Until they prove me otherwise I will listen to their council. So I am going to share with you two videos that I found about how to promote yourself on social media by Rachel Hollis.
As bloggers, entrepreneurs, and business minded people, we know the importance of the Internet and the Power behind it's influence. Although it may have been a tool designed to trick the minds of the masses, it can be an awesome resource to spread the truth about the Kingdom of Heaven.
I'm not a very social person. People always ask me why I never pick up my phone . . . because I'm either
#1 Not near my phone and don't feel like answering calls
#2 I am busy and don't feel like answering calls
#3 Relaxing and don't want to talk to you.
This is why I am thankful that God sent me friends that don't mind my social awkwardness. We could go months with out speaking but then just pick right back where we left off. This is how I feel about relationships; they should be long lasting. Relationships should be cultivated and tested by time. This is how you truly get to know someone. So, why do I have to promote myself on social media?
The Answer: because it is good for business, Kingdom business . . .
I have been asking God lately . . .why am I doing all of this? Why did I enter into this world of social media propaganda?
I fundamentally feel that this is what Jesus was talking about when he said the end times would be full of a bunch of self loving, self absorbed, and selfish people. The end will be full of people that believe a lie rather than the truth. The people of the world will be tricked by many seducing spirits.
I don't want people to stay asleep on what is really going on in the world!
So many of us stay asleep to what is really going on. But we have directions to watch and pray:
Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. . .
. . .Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:
Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
His people will be those who spread the word of his coming and provide information about the Kingdom of heaven. His people will heal infirmities, and do great exploits. I pray that I don't become a person seeking affirmation from my social media following. Let me just say that I care about your soul and I am not doing this for a popularity contest.
So the thing is, I am not used to this idea of having to promote myself. Having to show people in a snap shot who I am. Maybe I don't want you to know me in a snap!
This is how people think now a days:
Instant with Instagram
In a snap with Snap Chat
All about You with YouTube
Tweet self Talk with Twitter
Pin it quick with Pinterest
This world is an instant gratification mess!
It is all about . . .
Your Likes, Your Pics, Your following!
It is exhausting!! It is at least for a person like me. I don't like talking to people that much. It is easier to stay hidden in the corner, but God called me to something greater, so I will keep going . . .
I have to get out of my box and learn that in these times, promoting myself means promoting the Kingdom. Everyday, a person, whom ever he or she may be, is promoting himself. His likes, his dislikes, and his beliefs. Don't ever compromise on your beliefs. If you are a follower of Christ, share that with the world.
You are promoting yourself!
You are promoting the Kingdom!
So, this will probably be my last post this week. If you missed any of my post through out the week go back and check them out. I have been promoting Rachel Hollis, a Christian Entrepreneur with a lot to offer her community. Eventually I will be doing a book review of her book, "Girl, Wash Your Face." I will also do a review of her new book coming out in March call "Girl, Stop Apologizing," available now for preorder.
-until next time
Oh, Shout out to Giulia! I will check out your site and get back to you.
Everyone, go see what Giulia is talking about, she is a fashion blogger. Perhaps she can give us fashion advice and teach us how to promote ourselves that way!
Remember to keep living life and to live it on purpose!
