Be Bold

Be Bold

Be bold. 

Be bold for the Lord. 

Be bold to be a better woman for the Lord. 

 

I’m in transition in my life. I recently changed jobs and moved states. It seems as if my life is off balance and I’m searching to find my groove in this new place. I’ve realized areas of my life are getting pushed to the way side in the shuffle and my relationship with God is taking the brunt of it.

I’ve been reflecting: am I giving the Lord enough justice in my life? Am I being radical enough for the Lord? How can I be radical here in this new place? Are my prayer and words being supported by my actions?

I’ve been convicted that I need to be bold for the Lord.

I have to make bold choices and decisions each day to put the Lord first and strive to be the woman He designed me to be.

This is an area most women struggle with but we need to be confident in whom the Lord made us to be - strong, faithful, virtuous, and beautiful ever in His sight! The Lord delights in you. 

 

Be BOLD for the Lord for He was bold for us first.  

Sending His only son to this world to die on a cross for our sins, that we might be saved! Be bold this His spirit may live on this earth in every action of our lives!

It takes a lot to be bold for God in every moment of every day, I fall each day believe me. But, I encourage us all to find that one area that is our weak spot and be bold to commit it over to the Lord each day so that we may be courageous and confident women living for Him!
