The internet is a mission field. One we can access anytime, day or night, at home or at any free Wifi spot.
It’s exciting and rewarding.
Everyday I use social media to encourage people from all over the world.
I have been blessed with the means to reach over 20,000 people a day.
But it comes with a price tag.
The more people you reach, the more you are open to hate, judgment, and abuse.
It’s hard to be open and honest online because someone will feel the need to get your vulnerability and throw it back in your face.
But those moments will fade away when you hear that voice say “I thought I was the only one”. You will cry with joy when you hear that words “because of you I have the strength to keep fighting.”
Yes online ministry is one of the hardest, loneliest things you will ever do.
- you will meet the most inspirational, mighty warriors of God.
- You will make life long friends with people you have never met face to face.
- You will learn how to deal with conflict, pray like you never have before, set good boundaries and know what its like to fight on the front line.
When you step out and faith and do the hard things, God blesses it.
