I have an insecurity: the insecurity of sharing my faith. Why? Because I didn’t want to look like a fool nor a weirdo. For so long I’ve been wearing a half mask, revealing myself in some aspect but also hiding the fact of how Jesus Christ led me to be who I am, a girl saved by Grace through redemption.
This was hard for me to write because I didn’t want any “j’accuse” from other Christians or be looked down upon. However, I’m too old (though I’m young) to live in a shadow or hide my light under a bushel regarding my belief in Jesus Christ. I truly want this blog to reveal some aspect of me, especially my faith.
“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead, they put it on its stand, and gives it light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” – Matthew 5:13-16 NIV
However, though I do love to know all people, I don’t want to “scare” anyone away like a repellent. However, it will and that’s what I’m going to have to deal with. Though I care and am interested in all people, God knows what’s best for me and how I should conduct my blog, in the most authentic proper manner.
Therefore, you will see my faith written here and there on my blog because that’s what should’ve happened a long time ago. I believe that doing this, the Lord will open more doors, but also help me grow to be a better faithful servant in the online world.
“Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces’ perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.” – Romans 5:3-4 NIV
I am not a perfect person, not even a perfect saint. I don’t read the Bible everyday, even though I should, nor do I talk about the gospel to people (being an introvert, that is freaking scary). But I thank Him for continuously dealing with me in His Grace. All I can ask for is for Him to mold me, transform me, and use me (gulp) to glorify His name. Even saying that seems so scary. With God though, nothing is comfortable. It can peaceful, but it’s not comfortable. He moves you out of your comfort zone and moves you to do things that may be heart pounding (like me writing this post, YIKES!) but it’s needed for you to persevere, produce character, and eventually have hope.
So readers and friends, be on the lookout for posts like these and more! Love you all!
Until Next Time,
