"Bold and Beautiful" is very common term, but maybe not in the sense I am thinking of. One of my favorite verses is Proverbs 31:25," She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come." As Christian teen girls, we should hold dear to this verse. My hearts prayer recently has been for boldness, (which led me to this blog) but I think it is our duty to not be ashamed of our Lord and our service to Him. God told us in His word that if we are ashamed of Him, the Son of Man will be ashamed of us on Judgement Day.This statement terrifies me, therefore I plan to serve my Lord to the best of my ability and be BOLD in His works. This isn’t where I was planning on going with this post but that’s okay. I feel so small. God loves us so much to give us such grace and mercy, even though we fall so short. That’s such an indescribable love, and to give His son for us…Dirty, shameful, sinners like us, to die a horrid death on a tree…for us. How can we not strive to serve Him? After that thought, let me get back to what I was saying. God made us each BEAUTIFUL, and perfect in His eyes. He has clothed us with strength and dignity with a promise of happiness in coming days. This alone, gives me such a desire to live for Him. I challenge you to be bold in your Christian walk, it’s not easy, but it’s the least we can do.
This is my first blog, so look past the flaws. I have felt God leading me to the blogging world to share His love with others worldwide for a while so I decided to give it a try. I don't want to get ahead of myself, I think you should know a little bit about me. Most importantly, Jesus Christ is my savior and dearest friend. I may be a teenager, but I'm far from normal, I wouldn't have it any other way though. I'm far from shy and I have never met a stranger. I'm very southern and my vocabulary consists of many, "y'alls, ain'ts, and huns" as well as many "bless your heart's". I have a huge heart, and smile all of the time. I laugh at things most may not see funny, or after the moment is over and I just figured it out. In all seriousness I began my walk with the Lord two short year ago, and though I fail Him daily, I strive to serve him. I'm sure within my next few posts I will share my testimony, it's too good to hold in! Until next time y'all :)
