"Jesus said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation." ... Mark 16:15
Okay. John Piper or not, I find this quote sad:
“One of the great uses of Twitter and Facebook will be to prove at the Last Day that prayerlessness was not from lack of time.”
― John Piper
But Debra says this:
"Anything in Life will always be what we make it. It's not the thing, it's what we do with the thing."
Twitter and Facebook? Ripe, waving-like-wheat mission fields just begging to be harvested. Oh, the opportunities to get in there and reap those thousands of open, searching hearts!
Even my own heart (which has been known to search whole weekends for relevant Christian blogs) has experienced a huge paradigm shift regarding courage because of boldness of those taking bullets in battle (but still standing) at Twitter.
And I've found kindred spirits galore who love to share Truth. What a land, that Twitter.
And I will end this post today with just a sampling of the relevant truth I find there each morning. Oh, to wander into the right place at the right time ... I read these and feel awake! As though I've just had a blood infusion from a 20-year-old:
If God promises you peace- don't settle for anxiety, worry, and stress!!
Stop wishing, start doing! Begin to step out- don't just think about it- start moving!! #StepOutInFaith http://ow.ly/i/4MByZ
#SelfMemo Worry dethrones God Worry says we need to be king b/c God's incompetent If the King really rules your world you really don't worry.
“@ChuckVStheMovie: Which Bible Character would you like to Play in a Movie?” David. He was gritty, dirty, God loving mess. That’s a story.
Some of the people who fight you are preparing you for where you’re going.
You must prepare for where you're going, and not stay stuck where you have been!
You saw how He blessed me but you didn't see how He broke me!! - @BishopJakes
God doesn't want to make your circumstances smaller. He wants to make you BIGGER.
@facedances3 I can't worry about what others think. I'm looking to heaven.

Ann Kiemel Anderson passed away this past weekend. She was a major influence to me during my teens and twenties. I often read her blog (you'll find some of her book excerpts there) and Facebook page, but hadn't lately. Cancer took her so quickly.
I'm glad to be assured she's in Heaven, but am praying for comfort for her four sons, their families and Jan's (her twin's) family, as well.
She blessed many people in her lifetime.
"Even now the one who reaps draws a wage and harvests a crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together." ... John 4:36
