To take chances and raise the bar. You weren’t made to put your light under a bushel. You were made to shine! You were made to be a reflection of Him.
Life isn’t about fitting in. It’s about standing out, showing up and being different.
As a Christian, you were made to stand out.
Trust me I know it’s not always easy. It takes a lot of courage. We have to wake up every morning and choose to be brave. We have to wake up and choose that we are going to be different. A patch of color in a world of black and white. We are supposed to be in the world not of it. Which means we can’t act like the world. We are supposed to be different.
We are called to be brave.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9 NIV
To stand up and live our faith… Don’t be afraid to make a ripple. You never know who is watching, or whose life you will change. Live everyday bravely. Over the years as my sister and I were about to walk out the door my mom would always stop us and say “Remember who you are and who you belong to”.
In other words, don’t let the world sway you from doing what you know is right. You are a child of the King! Be brave.
