Isabel Oli urges others to give help, encouragement via social media despite negativity
Isabel Oli is encouraging the public to spread positivity and to help each other through faith amid the negativity prevalent in the age of social media.
The model and actress shared her thoughts after coming across a poem by J.C. Ryle that encourages people to keep on going and to “pray on” as “time is short” and “the end is drawing near.”
“Saw this photo online. Very timely. With what’s going on around us — COVID, wildfire, earthquakes, flood, war, etc. The paintbrush of bitterness, fear and anger color life’s atmosphere,” Oli posted on Instagram earlier today, Aug. 21.
“The ebony color of social media bashing, for one. Social media is a venue where you can use as a platform for encouraging or helping not hurting or pulling each other down each,” she emphasized.
“While expressing our basic human right to self-expression is a choice, so is doing it responsibly. If we choose responsibility over uncontrolled emotions, we may just be creating life’s rooms for encouragement and healing,” Oli added.

“Most certainly, we need to lift up one another in prayer. Faith-filled prayer gives birth to true hope grounded on the words of Jesus, who is the God of hope,” Oli emphasized.
“So, let’s go and spread the bright colors of His life-giving words, that sufferers may breathe them in and begin to live again,” she added.
Oli then went on to stress that despite “the blackness around us, God can enable our spirits to see His goodness in the land of the living.”
Things seem to be going good for the actress lately, as she and her husband, John Prats, earlier this month announced that the construction of their dream house has finally started.
Oli and Prats have been married for over six years now. They recently celebrated the first birthday of their youngest child, Forest, by throwing a teddy bear-themed party at home. /ra
