The Ripple Effect

 Hello! Today my post is titled "The Ripple Effect." I want to talk about how when we write, do we realize what a big impact it makes on people? They read what we write, and get influenced by that. (I do.) The main facts for this post were given to me by a friend. OK, I'll get on with this, but just stop and listen one day, what is happening in the world around you? How are you impacting it? Are you making it better? I hope this little inspirational inspires you. (This will contain songs as well.)


The Ripple Effect 1/2

  When you think about it, you are like a pebble. You do something, and it affects so many people. Have you ever seen a pebble as soon as it hits the water? It ripples and the ripples affect the water. The things we do and say should help people think all the more about Christ. We all need a personal burden about what we do. Refer to Job 19: 23-27 in the Bible. We need to find our pebble and splash right into the water! We need to do some things. We need to influence the world around us.Jesus will help you however tough the situation is around us.
                                                                                    


 What inspired you to start writing? Well, a lot of things, but we read and gather information. We read other books and slowly start writing our own. We need to read in the Scriptures. We need to gather information from the Bible. When you write, you need to be fully submersed in your subject and you must be a thinker. We need to sort out and show cause and effect in our writing.  We need to have a burden to help others find Christ. Job 9 in the Bible (reference) Do I care about people? Do I really believe that the lost will go to hell? I do and want others to know too and not go to hell.

                                                                                        

                                                                         



  Good, whole, reaches-out-to the-people writing comes from the heart. (At the end of this article there will be a little challenge for you.)


The Ripple Effect Part 2/2

  We may never know (until eternity) what an impact our ripple did have. It may have had a much bigger impact than we think, and we'd never realize it! We have to be extremely careful on what we say. One slip of the tongue, and poof! It can never come back. You could say 'Sorry! Sorry! Please forget about it!' They might say 'Sure.' But really, some words can get stuck in a person's head and they won't forget about it. (It happens with me.) Guard your tongue. Be kind and loving towards people.
"Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof."
 Proverbs 18 :21
" In the multitude of words there wanteth not sin: but he that refraineth his lips is wise."
Proverbs 10:19
 " Whoso keepeth his mouth and his tongue keepeth his soul from troubles."
Proverbs 21:23 (all verses are KJV)

                                                                         



  
  Having your world turned upside-down can actually be an unpleasant thing. No kidding. It should be our goal to change the world upside down for the good, though. But we also need to be on the alert for repercussions. For example, Adam & Eve started ripples that resulted in much suffering and death throughout history. (Oh, off topic, but have you ever seen it like HIS Story? History) History is full of devastation. What do you think Adam & Eve would have done if they could've seen ahead? What would they've done if they could've seen the repercussions? Think about it, my decisions may affect generations! So to close up, rather than concentrating on the feebleness of our efforts, let's concentrate on the greatness of our God! And don't forget, let your ripple "shine" today!

 Challenge which was mentioned in part 1/2 
Can you answer
  • How could people who lived many years ago, impact me today without books?
Try this!
  • Try writing about the crucifixion of Jesus through the eyes of Peter in the Bible!


You don't have to comment about those challenges, but you could if you wanted to! This inspirational really affected me and I thought you should know about it. :)  I hope you have a great week and don't forget- If God has given you a talent and knowledge- write about it!!!!!!!!!!!! ~Autumn Read below for more awesomeness!


2 Chronicles 35
35 Moreover Josiah kept a passover unto the Lord in Jerusalem: and they killed the passover on the fourteenth day of the first month.
And he set the priests in their charges, and encouraged them to the service of the house of the Lord,
And said unto the Levites that taught all Israel, which were holy unto the Lord, Put the holy ark in the house which Solomon the son of David king of Israel did build; it shall not be a burden upon your shoulders: serve now the Lord your God, and his people Israel,
And prepare yourselves by the houses of your fathers, after your courses, according to the writing of David king of Israel, and according to the writing of Solomon his son.
And stand in the holy place according to the divisions of the families of the fathers of your brethren the people, and after the division of the families of the Levites.
So kill the passover, and sanctify yourselves, and prepare your brethren, that they may do according to the word of the Lord by the hand of Moses.
And Josiah gave to the people, of the flock, lambs and kids, all for the passover offerings, for all that were present, to the number of thirty thousand, and three thousand bullocks: these were of the king's substance.
And his princes gave willingly unto the people, to the priests, and to the Levites: Hilkiah and Zechariah and Jehiel, rulers of the house of God, gave unto the priests for the passover offerings two thousand and six hundred small cattle and three hundred oxen.
Conaniah also, and Shemaiah and Nethaneel, his brethren, and Hashabiah and Jeiel and Jozabad, chief of the Levites, gave unto the Levites for passover offerings five thousand small cattle, and five hundred oxen.
10 So the service was prepared, and the priests stood in their place, and the Levites in their courses, according to the king's commandment.
11 And they killed the passover, and the priests sprinkled the blood from their hands, and the Levites flayed them.
12 And they removed the burnt offerings, that they might give according to the divisions of the families of the people, to offer unto the Lord, as it is written in the book of Moses. And so did they with the oxen.
13 And they roasted the passover with fire according to the ordinance: but the other holy offerings sod they in pots, and in caldrons, and in pans, and divided them speedily among all the people.
14 And afterward they made ready for themselves, and for the priests: because the priests the sons of Aaron were busied in offering of burnt offerings and the fat until night; therefore the Levites prepared for themselves, and for the priests the sons of Aaron.
15 And the singers the sons of Asaph were in their place, according to the commandment of David, and Asaph, and Heman, and Jeduthun the king's seer; and the porters waited at every gate; they might not depart from their service; for their brethren the Levites prepared for them.
16 So all the service of the Lord was prepared the same day, to keep the passover, and to offer burnt offerings upon the altar of the Lord, according to the commandment of king Josiah.
17 And the children of Israel that were present kept the passover at that time, and the feast of unleavened bread seven days.
18 And there was no passover like to that kept in Israel from the days of Samuel the prophet; neither did all the kings of Israel keep such a passover as Josiah kept, and the priests, and the Levites, and all Judah and Israel that were present, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
19 In the eighteenth year of the reign of Josiah was this passover kept.
20 After all this, when Josiah had prepared the temple, Necho king of Egypt came up to fight against Charchemish by Euphrates: and Josiah went out against him.
21 But he sent ambassadors to him, saying, What have I to do with thee, thou king of Judah? I come not against thee this day, but against the house wherewith I have war: for God commanded me to make haste: forbear thee from meddling with God, who is with me, that he destroy thee not.
22 Nevertheless Josiah would not turn his face from him, but disguised himself, that he might fight with him, and hearkened not unto the words of Necho from the mouth of God, and came to fight in the valley of Megiddo.
23 And the archers shot at king Josiah; and the king said to his servants, Have me away; for I am sore wounded.
24 His servants therefore took him out of that chariot, and put him in the second chariot that he had; and they brought him to Jerusalem, and he died, and was buried in one of the sepulchres of his fathers. And all Judah and Jerusalem mourned for Josiah.
25 And Jeremiah lamented for Josiah: and all the singing men and the singing women spake of Josiah in their lamentations to this day, and made them an ordinance in Israel: and, behold, they are written in the lamentations.
26 Now the rest of the acts of Josiah, and his goodness, according to that which was written in the law of the Lord,
27 And his deeds, first and last, behold, they are written in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah.
