Speaking Social Media

This is for all the writers aspiring or otherwise and the public speakers everywhere.

Every time we log onto our social media and post we are engaging in the art of public speaking.  Whether it’s a simple “like” or a lengthy thought it’s all part of the language of social media.  We are constantly speaking volumes publicly whether we consciously know it or not.

About ten years ago I began writing my first book Path of the Blessing: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob Then with the encouragement from a friend of mine who is an editor I began blogging. 

Those early beginning stages of writing were so scary. 

When a woman first finds out that she’s pregnant and she’ll be delivering in nine months those first few weeks are full of excitement, anticipation, fear, and unknown.  That’s exactly how I felt at the beginning when writing. 


Most of all I’ve wondered if anyone will be listening.  HELLO? Is anyone there?

As the years have gone on and my baby has been born onto I’ve been finding ways to share my baby with the public.  Blogger, a Facebook Page, and now more recently Twitter and Instagram have been new ways to display and talk about my baby.

I know I can’t be the only one feeling this way, and you know what?  I’m not.  Jeremiah felt the SAME way!

In Jeremiah chapter 1 verses 5 through 9 God calls to Jeremiah.  He told Jeremiah that he had a plan for his life and that plan included public speaking. 

Jeremiah’s response was one that I can relate to:
“I do not know how to speak; I am too young”

Jeremiah is feeling all those feelings of excitement, anticipation, fear, and unknown.   Then the Lord says to Jeremiah not to be afraid because he will rescue him and give him the words to say.

AHH! So there it is…One of the pertinent KEYS to speaking social media.

Invite God into our words before we write, “like”, and post and he will give us the words to say; speaking social media.

  1. I think you have hit the key to having the words to say in our writing. It's this: "Invite God into our words before we write, “like”, and post and he will give us the words to say; speaking social media." In my blogging and other social media I want to share encouragement and point others to God. I don't always remember to pray first, but I think it is a good plan.

    Blessings to you! I found you in the Faithful Bloggers Facebook group.

    1. Gayl, I don't always remember to pray first either! I suppose that's why it's on my heart to write about this subject. The Lord is speaking to ME! ha! Thank you for your comments! (Don't you just love being a part of Faithful Bloggers? It's a great way to encourage on another! Thanks again!
