There was something different about her. Everyone knew it. She walks with grace, no, she walks in grace. She is compassionate, she cares about others. She is kind, and is sweet to everyone she meets. She is joyful, gives a smile to those she see's. She is beautiful, inside and out. She is humble, and selfless. She is an encouragement to others. She is funny. She isn't perfect, but no one is. She is different because she is in Christ.
Dedicated to my loving sister Lauren, each of these things is true about her.
Proverbs 31:25 says, " Strength and honor are her clothing, and she can laugh at the time to come. "
What are you afraid of? Maybe of the dark? Snakes? Public speaking?
We are all afraid of something... it's hard not to be afraid. But there is something that can come out of fear. Courage. Courage doesn't mean the absences of fear, it means you are afraid but you are brave enough to do the right thing.
We can also find refuge in Christ. Jesus is bigger than your fears.. He is bigger than anything. Now why do you need to be afraid? Maybe you are afraid of death? If you are a follower of Jesus then you don't need to be, because you would go to heaven. And God is always with you.
Psalm 56:3 says, " When I am afraid, I will trust in You."
Next time you are afraid then remember, God is always with you.
We all have a comfort zone. So we want to stay inside of it because it is comfortable to us.
Sometimes God calls us to step out of our comfort zone to do what He has called us to do.
Katie Davis. She had a comfortable life here in America. She had her boyfriend, friends, family, a large house, and could go shopping. But God had called her to Uganda. She went. She is still there. You can learn more about her amazing story on her blog firstname.lastname@example.org or you could read her book Kisses from Katie.
She went and made a difference in children's lives.
" I learned that I will not change the world. Jesus will do that. I can, however, change the world for one person. So I keep loving one person at a time. Because this is my call as a follower of Jesus."
- Katie Davis
So be willing to be used by God. You can't change the world. But you can change someone's life.
Just be willing to step out of your comfort zone and God will guide you where He wants you to go.
