When Your “Apps” Bring You Joy!
I really do smile when that commercial comes on TV; the one where the father is texting several emojis to his son, and ends up showing his son his “Selfie”. As the son realizes that the picture is not a self-portrait but in fact a picture of something else, he tries to explain to his father that the picture is technically NOT a selfie. “But I took it myself!” exclaims the confused father. That commercial brings me joy in the father’s misunderstanding of today’s technological terms.
Now, comes my new App! I’m so excited about it! It is actually a birthday gift to myself and I couldn’t wait to share it with each of you. This new APP was a gift that was prepared for me while I was still in my mother’s womb and I don’t even think SHE was aware of it while I was kicking her from the inside. Jeremiah 1:5 talks about my new APP – “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”
Now, when I think about an APP the image that generally comes to mind are multicolored pictures with a logo included; pictures that need to be touched and swiped on my phone, tablet and my touch-screen laptop. It’s so cute watching my niece swipe the apps on her mom’s phone while looking for a new video to watch! Even lap infants know how to take that index finger and swipe an app! Do you want to know how to use MY new app? Let me tell you about it!
This app of mine doesn’t need to be downloaded on an electronic devise because I carry it with me each and every waking hour. You can see it on my social media sites and you can read them, or watch them on YouTube. My app is built into my DNA and was given to me by God even before my parent’s did “the nasty!” In fact, some of you have apps that you aren’t even using and I want to encourage you to discover them and USE them in your everyday life. What am I talking about? Let me show you!
My APP is who I am! Yes, I am Evangelist Angie BEE, also known as Bartee’s wife, my children’s mother, Karter’s grandmother and Auntie Angie to Sandra, Noah and Jalen (among countless other grown-folks as well). My APP is what I do as I honor and serve the Lord with greatness. I’m not waiting for this weekend, or for time off, or for retirement to use my app! I am using is right now as I write this article, and in the next hour as I am interviewed for a radio show. I am using my APP next month as I introduce you to our next book and when I produce the audio version of this article that you can listen to and share with another. What am I talking about? My APP stands for
A – Author
P – Producer
P – Promoter and
S- Servant of the Lord
(I have several APPs and I give God praise for each of them!)
You see now why that commercial gives me so much joy? The dad thought that since he took the picture of his son all by himself, that it was called a “selfie”. He had no clue that a selfie is defined as a picture of yourself that you took. I developed my own APP from the titles that I wear, but in actuality those gifts and talents were implanted in me by my Lord and Savior as I was growing into His Servant, and the more I understand the significance of that, the more I can be used by God; and enjoy my life.
What is YOUR app? How are you swiping your APPS? Are you
A – Another
P – Peaceful
P – Prophet
following the instructions of God and speaking HIS words to his people? Or are you
A – Another
P – Possible
P – Person
waiting to find your niche in business, family, friendships and financial stability?
Let God download your APP and use it daily. Don’t just think about it, DO IT NOW! Take your own selfie and take a good look at your face…what do you see? Do you see yourself the way others see you? Do you see yourself the way God sees you? How do you want to appear to others? Are you working to improve yourself or are you working to better the community in which you live?
