Like seeing the leaves change or my kiddos grow so fast, change is so beautiful, so exciting sometimes. But the process seems so unknown. And for me, who likes to have full understanding of how things will turn out, well, it just doesn't "feel" exciting. It makes me wish that my feelings and reality always lined up perfectly with each other. But since they don't I just have to keep telling my feelings the truth and wait for them to follow. "This is an exciting time we live in."
I've been processing ministry momentum and how social media plays into it. And I've been seeing a bit of a change in my role as a ministry leader having three little ones and very capable staff. And then I hear that the Egypt revolution was started by facebook. Wow! A facebook group of 400,000 younger people (26% of the population) decided to riot, and take some action to see some changes. Then when the riots were on tv, and 300 young people died, the older generation stepped in, upset they had been passive for so long and left the young people to lead. Result: full blown revolution. Facebook created momentum to the point that when the government blocked facebook from the entire country, the revolution could not be stopped.
I sense a shift taking place that is and will more so drastically shift ministry momentum, but I can't understand what it ultimately will look like and how to capitalize on it. Just as a green leaf cant fully understand what color it will end up by the end of the season. But I crave to know, to understand and walk in wisdom, capitalizing on social media for God's glory. I desire to better understand momentum and am pleading with God to give me the wisdom He promises to generously give to those that ask.
