Face It, God's on Social Media
Life Changing Posts Written to Inspire A Dying WorldBook - 2018
PROLOGUE I was never the FB type of person. Just never appealed to me. Honestly, I didn't really know what it was all about and so I stayed away and boasted, about not having any interest in this much sought after and used social medium. Further, when I did think of possibly engaging in whatever FB was, that thought would normally be followed up by the thought 'I'm a Christian, what would I be accomplishing by spending time on such and how could it possibly enrich my life as a believer in Jesus Christ?' We are living in days of desperation and hunger for 'something' and 'someone' to believe in and to trust. Wading in dark waters, hoping that a boat will come along and toss lifeboats to us so that we do not drown in utter despairing waters. So, when I took the plunge into social media by writing my deepest thoughts about a life impacted and continually still, being impacted by GOD Almighty, there were people who immediately bit and chewed on the words which I shared out of total love and fascination for the life I was increasingly living as a child of GOD. I recall feeling a sense of boldness and more than a few times, I asked myself "why are you writing about GOD on FB to the extent you are doing it? Folks already think you are over the top with your response to GOD in your life; who does this?" My response to myself was 'why not, I am not ashamed of my relationship with Him,' "I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ...."' Romans 1:16. I had to come to the full recognition that my love for Him, would not be bottled up and only opened when I was in the sanctuary on Sundays. As one of His own, I am after all, mandated to take His Word anywhere and everywhere. I was falling deeper and deeper in love with Him, daily and I wanted to share my thoughts of Him with the world and where better to do it, than on social media? After all, doesn't His Word say in Matthew 28:19-20, to 'go ye into all the world....' Yes, it does and though I am not physically traveling to other nations, my writing of Him as He impacts my life and the world about me, is being taken to South Africa, Nigeria, Italy, the Caribbean, Greece, the Middle East, the United Kingdom and Australia and several states with these United States. This spiritual odyssey that I have been on increasingly, more and more in the past 7 years, 'going from glory to glory,' has in a sense, demanded that I share my thoughts, hopes and dreams as such pertains to my relationship with GOD Almighty. I began to realize that as I also shared humorous thoughts and stories, I could give words of hope and inspiration and that it would be rather foolish to hide the fact that as one of His, "I am the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden." Matthew 5:14. I have been told by FB brothers and sisters, how the words, delicately, yet passionately strung together into sentences, have caused a time for pause and a time for inspiration and encouragement to sink deep into their souls. My one, monumental responsibility in all of this, is to always be certain and deliberate, to pause and say; 'thank you, but He gets all the honor and the glory, and the praise.' I must add here, a special thank you to my son Tyen Barnes, for all the technical assistance he supplied me as I took on the job of not only writing all herein, but deciding and collating the esthetics of this book. Therefore, with surety of my mission and calling, I extend you the invitation to travel through each page of this book, with boldness and with courage and a willingness to be expanded by some thought, some hope, or even some bias of mine! "Face, It...GOD'S on Social Media." Now, step into it!!!
