Three Ways to Get Your Message out There

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!

Can you think of a few more ways?

These are only a few ways you can start sharing God’s message of love right now—today! In the comments, let me know your favorite ways to share God’s love.

I look forward to reading what you have to say!

 

Blessings,

    Hey Mary B,
    That’s a great question!
    May I please share with you my ideas 🙂
    I’m my life, often times the only people I encounter on a regular bases is my immediate family (and their awesome )
    I can relate to your question though,
    as I am not on social media at this time either.
    Throughout the seasons of my life I have ask the LORD how He wants me to spend my time, and who He wants me to spend it with.
    Often times for me that has been in my own home only, and even though everyone here knows my story for the most part, I realize my goal is to encourage them where they are, and share with them how God is speaking to me, and turn my ‘message’ that I may someday be called to stand on stage and share with thousands, (I would love to) aim my message to their unique situations, and find ways to speak personally into each of their lives.
    I am the oldest of 6 siblings, and I feel that right now speaking into their lives is the way Godis using my message.
    I find whenever I am faithful with those He has already put in my life, that when God is ready, He makes a way for my audience to be bigger, and He provides
    For me the new way of sharing my message. I hope God shows you a unique way to share your message too Mary, and who knows, maybe you will right a book after all, if you do, I would love to read it. GOD BLESS YOU

    I give out angel charms as a way to help people to not only know more about angels but to help them connect with them and hence connect with God.
    I work with and tell people about affirmations as I have such good things happen to me as a result of saying them.

    Thank you so much. I have always prayed for you whenever you would come to fresh fire and I do believe that word was especially for me and I’ve been walking with the Lord for 59 years so it was very encouraging and I sent all the blessings of Abraham to you and your family number 6 24 through 27 you’re Jewish sister Sally Pettigrew looking at reports of that and thank you.

    Glory to God. Doug called me out at a meeting that I would write a book. I have self -published my first booklet. I also write a blog and was published once in the Morning Star Journal. More will follow. I write emails directly to others when appropriate and use FB to speak life into the cyber atmosphere. As Doung’s word was a great encouragement, I will send you all a copy of the little book. Let all your contacts be encouraged to start. Journaling for years got me started.

    I did write a book and got it published. It’s a powerful story of how God works when we choose to forgive. Only a couple hundred copies have sold or been given away. All the platforms that were going to help get the book a wider audience dried up and now I have boxes of books. So the testimony of God’s power through forgiveness is sitting in boxes in my studio. Not sure how to get this particular testimony out to a wider audience.

      Donna:

      Appreciated your comment. I am finishing a book and want to be careful of avoiding having too many copies. I do write a blog which has had limited readership but I continue as I am led by the Spirit.

    Doug, your article today is very informative and helpful.
    I approached this 2 years ago in terms of the video message concept, because of my hand disease, at the time I couldn’t write as I used to do. So I created this web page on Vimeo.
    So far I’ve garnered 442 thousand viewer hits, thousands of plays, comments etc. I still have my book manuscript sitting in the waiting bin in my office, your words today have encouraged me to rethink that manuscript into a completed work in a book.
