I feel compelled to write this post based on what I have been seeing on social media lately. Though it can be difficult to not respond to such shockingly bold negativity… I choose to speak life.

If you walk into a dark room what is the first thing that you do so that you can see? You turn on the light!
Try not to start a personal crusade because you are angry or upset with what you are seeing out there.  A simple way to respond to darkness is to shine some light and speak life.

So turn on the light.

I think about how Jesus spoke in parables to a crowd and then explained the parables to his disciples when he had a moment alone with them. He also shared, even more, information, at times, to the ones he was closest with. He definitely wasn’t a bull in a china shop. He knew his audience.

Think and pray about what you share publicly and what you share as a private message. Turn on the light as you speak life to those around you.

Here are some ways to spread light in the darkness:

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.

Speak Life by TobyMac is a great song to soothe the angst as you navigate through your social media.

Proverbs 18:21
“Please share this post and song everytime you feel like a little bit of light will help.”
