Being a Christian isn’t easy….

This post is not to complain, because I LOVE my life in Christ. It’s to shed light on the simple truths that people may not tell you when you welcome salvation….

1. You lose people

You start falling in love with God, and sometimes you may be the only person for a while that is committing and one by one they all flee. When those people flee, God replaces them with incredible, God-fearing, world shakers that awaken something in you and causes you to be a better you.

2. Self-condemnation

You begin to feel guilty with every single thing you do, sometimes it’s hard to sleep because you can’t stop thinking about yesterday’s mistake, but in those moments God gently whispers in your ears “Christ died for you, so you can live. I LOVE YOU and nothing will ever change that.”

3. You have to reassess everything

You may have been going down a path that doesn’t align with the path that God uniquely created for you, so now you have to start from point A and figure it all out……..actually, you just start from where you are because God has it all already figured it out and He knew you would get to this point before you did.

You know now that I think about it being a Christian isn’t hard at all, life without God is hard. Waking up everyday relying on your strength, depending on your own schemes, self-soothing with temporary things. Been there done that and I wouldn’t trade my new found freedom with anything.

FOCUS.

Without a doubt, I believe that Christ is working through you to be the answer to a crying world.

BUT YOU HAVE TO STAY FOCUSED!

To think that the stranger you just walked by is waiting to hear your story and how God brought you through, but you’re distracted by pointless things.

We blame the enemy for illnesses, drugs, alcohol, basically items. Guess what the enemy is doing the most of, but you have no idea….DISTRACTING YOU!…..what?!

How many hours are you on social media? How many times do you put off something for tomorrow? How many times do you say I don’t have time?

If you’re on social media, use it to shed light. If you get that thing done today, you can do something totally different tomorrow and you would obviously have more time, if you stopped putting things off and prioritized.

This may be coming off harsh, but you’re SO VALUABLE to lives being changed for the better around the world, but you’re distracted by things that ultimately don’t matter.

This is the year for authenticity. Dive in and be uniquely you and most of all stay FOCUSED.

PURPOSE.

As I sit behind this computer screen, I feel really nervous about what I am going to ask you…..let me just explain myself first.

Almost two years ago, I was sitting in my room with no purpose, rather sitting in my room and I wasn’t aware of my purpose. It’s completely frustrating to venture down all these roads and still feel empty and incomplete, knowing you’re not doing what you were birthed to do.

I finally had a conversation with God, being honest with myself I admitted to not having it all figured out. Several things were revealed to me in that moment, but there’s one particular thing I need your help with. God revealed that I would be creating a new line of Christian apparel, unlike anything else that currently exist(not knocking anyone, because they’re all awesome). Just the movement that would happen through the clothing that I would create. Here’s where you come in, I am currently in need of financial help to continue moving forward. I really want to avoid taking out any loans and I’ve hit a major roadblock with my finances.

I hear over and over again that the resources from God are right in front of us, but some are too scared to tap into those resources. So, here I am being bold and praying for a miracle. I’ve created a (click go fund me) GO FUND ME page with more info and I am asking for your DONATIONS. Even if you can’t donate PLEASE SHARE THIS BLOG and hopefully it will reach someone who feels led to donate to this. I can’t give out more info on the clothing until more things are copywritten, but trust me as soon as things start happening I will be sharing more and more. I am very excited for this new journey and I ask for your prayers of support and whatever you can donate to help me out.

Thank you beautiful people!! Have a blessed day.

“I met a cool guy today!”

“Really?! I need details!”

“He’s INCREDIBLE! I’ve never met anyone like him before.”

“Where’d you meet him?”

“I was just walking home from the bar last night, and I heard him call my name”

“Wait! He knew your name?”

“Yeah”

“Soo, you knew him already?”

“Umm, no”

“UMMM?”

“He knows me, more than I know him”

“Okay…how long has he known you?”

“My whole life”

“Wow!And he just randomly bumps into you, how cute!”

“Yeah!”

“What’s he like?”

“Beautiful, passionate, loving, protecting, incredible, amazing”

“HOLD ON! You met this guy last night and you’re already drooling over him?!”

“If you spent 60 seconds with him, you would feel the same way”

“Well, don’t be stingy! Does he have anyone for me?!”

“He has a son, that will blow your mind!”

“YES! LOL” 

“Can I meet your guy first?”

“You actually have to meet his son first, when you get to know him, you’ll get to know what his dad is like”

“Okay!When?”

“Right now is good!”

“Right now?! I have to fix my hair and change my clothes!”

“He doesn’t care how you look or what you wear!”

“He MUST be special, cause every guy cares!”

“I told you, there’s no one else like him!”

“Okay! I’m getting really excited! You better not be tricking me!”

“I’m not! He’s more than words can describe, seriously!”

“Well, can I have a first and last name, so I can google him just to make sure?”

“Jesus Christ”

 

What would life be like, if we were just as passionate about our Savior as we are about things of no value?
