Has God given you a message, but you're not sure how to get it out to the world?
The good news is that you live in an exciting time when there is so much opportunity to share the message God has given you in a variety of ways.
Here are three ways to get your message out there—starting today!
1. Record a video message.
The great thing about being on camera and sharing God's message is people can hear your tone of voice and see your facial expressions. It's an extremely personal way to communicate and makes you feel more tangible to your audience.
Many people are camera shy or get tongue-tied in front of the camera. If you experience this, do what I do: Write a short script of what you want to say to your audience before you step in front of the camera.
And, if you need a little more help than that, there are online teleprompter programs that will scroll your notes as you speak. This will calm your nerves and help you stay on track when sharing your message.
2. Write a book.
Writing a book may seem like a huge mountain to conquer. But it doesn't have to be!
Here are a few practical tips that helped me get over the mental blocks of getting my first book written.
Give up on perfection. Let go of the idea of writing perfectly the first time. Just sit down at your computer and let it flow, even though it may feel messy! Remember, you have to get it out before you can clean it up.
Start with a summary. Start by writing a short description of what your book will be about, who the message is for, etc. Then write a page or so with a bunch of thoughts about what you want to say.
Create a simple outline from your summary. The hardest part is to give up what you were taught in school or by professional writers. Remember—this is not a formal book report and there are no rules.
Do not be discouraged by the size of your document. Over the next few weeks, go back through and add more personal stories, things you picked up in your research and other new things God shows you.
Writing a book doesn't have to be hard or painful, have fun with it!
The best thing I can recommend is—just do it!
3. Share on social media.
One free opportunity you have access to right now is social media. Do you know there are 2.41 billion active users on Facebook today? That makes Facebook the largest "country" in the world!
Share encouraging messages on your social media accounts. Your followers will see it as a nice change as it interrupts the daily negativity they see on their online feeds.
Be a light in the darkness on social media. What a great way to share God's love!
