What are they seeing?
Are they seeing someone they want to become?
Or are they seeing a person full of insecurity and repressed emotions, thoughts and spirituality?
We owe it to the generation behind us to become the people God created us to be for there all sorts of people not living for God who are confident and successful in the world will are seeking out the attention of those who are presently watching us.
Be bold in your faith.
Be bold in your love.
Be bold in your life.
Be bold making mistakes.
Be bold in your failures.
Don't let negative things define you.
Let God define you.
Who does God say you are?
We are "stewards of the mysteries of God." 1 Corinthians 4:1
We were "chosen in Him before the foundation of the world" Ephesians 1:4
We are God's "workmanship." Ephesians 2:10
We are being "perfected." Philippians 1:6
We are "new creatures in Christ." 2 Corinthians 5:17
We are "Children of promise." Galatians 4:28
We are loved.
We are blessed.
We are beautiful.
And we can come boldly to God Himself! (Hebrews 10:25)
Why in the world do any of us waste time with insecurities or fears? They are all lies and have no place in us.
Shun them and embrace Jesus and the freedom He offers each of us.
