The 30 Minute Plan
There’s a time to do things, a right time for everything on the earth. Ecclesiastes 3:1, The Message
By Tami Heim
Almost every day @stickyJesus there’s a conversation with someone that isn’t convinced he or she can make a Kingdom impact on social media networks. When pressing in on this topic, we discover that fear is holding the perception of time hostage. If you aren’t wise to the enemy’s tactics, he’ll easily use that fear of wasted time to keep your salt and light from infiltrating the online world.
Candidly, it’s time to pin fear to the ground and the enemy with it.
If you’ve been following us for any amount of time, you know everything has to start with prayer. And of course we’re not letting you off the hook here. Pray, wait, and seek are mandatory first steps for any Christ follower intentional about God’s agenda online. You can’t effectively log on if you haven’t adequately powered up. Once you’ve established a solid connection, you’re ready to execute this 30 minute plan online.
“Go now, write it on a tablet for them, inscribe it on a scroll, that for the days to come it may be an everlasting witness.” ~ Isaiah 30:8
So here it is: the fourth Social Media Secret Weapon you can use to significantly improve your online conversation with others.

“Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” ~ Proverbs 19:21
