Lifting Up.

I've always had that sun shine attitude and the ability to share a smile.  It's just who I am.  What I haven't always had was the ability (or knowledge) to lift up others in thought and prayer.  It's so simple.  You don't have to spend money,or give up large amounts of time.  It's as simple as a thought  and/or prayer. 

I've been working on this.  I have to admit, it makes you feel great when you lift up others!  So here are two ideas I have for you...

The first idea I gleaned from our female pastor at our church.  She spoke at our MOPS meeting last year and shared the idea that she drives through our town and prays for specific people, but then also pray those people you see that you DON'T know.  Pray for their day, their family, their needs. 

The second idea I am sharing with you from Pixel Perfect , a photography blog I have stumbled upon and have found is so much more than tips and tricks for's also tips and tricks for your life.   She shared in a post recently how to use social media in a different way.   Let's be honest, Facebook and Twitter can sometimes be used as places that people use a little too much indiscretion.  They complain, boast, swear, gossip, banter, and other not-so-beautiful things. However it's others' way of communicating needs.  Needs for prayer, needs for support, needs for lifting up.  You can use this social media tool to do this!  You can take those negative statuses and lift those people up in prayer.  Pray for their day, for a change in attitude, for a look on the bright side.  You can pray for those who ask for prayer, for their needs.  You can pray for those who aren't asking, aren't making a statement, but just plain being.  Pray for them.  Pray for their families, for them to be open to the Lord's plan.

Social media is a great way to reconnect, connect, and stay in touch.
But best of all, you can use it to glorify Him.
