I've been struggling with an idea for months now. For one reason or another it's a decision I've hesitated to make and I'm not proud of it. I love fashion, it's fun and cool and exciting yet the most important thing in my life isn't the clothes I wear or the next rising trend; The most important thing in my life is my relationship with Jesus. He is my rock, my strength and to be quite honest the One whose will I constantly chase.
The battle is always within and although I hope to follow as fervently as I believe I've done I still fall short at times. I become idle in somethings and I let time take a hold of my plans. I began to think about my purpose and my spiritual duty on this earth. Most people would say their purpose is to live out their career because they are passionate about that or creating a family and though both are good things my purpose and my entire existence sums up to one thing, spreading the gospel.
Nicole and I have a wonderful blog and clothing line but I finally made the decision to spread faith through my blog on a deeper level. Why I struggled with finally sitting down to add this section to our blog I will never exactly know. Attribute it to being busy or lazy or just undecided, however I'm glad to say that this has begun here today. I know I must serve a greater purpose than to just style beautiful garments and honestly me doubting God's plan for my life isn't an option. Disbelief was never an option.
I've always known I was called to have a voice and that being said you have a voice too. I urge you reader to take note and shake yourself! The world is in constant flux (mostly negative) and the little bits of light out there aren't shining as they should. I will never forget the verse that says, "And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled." Luke 14:23
Are we? Are we compelling them to come in and hear His word?
I believe it's time each and everyone of us take accountability for ourselves and realize that we are responsible for the people that we have an opportunity to speak to in our lives. I made a promise to myself last year after my cousins passing that I would never miss the chance to share the gospel again. No matter how embarrassing the situation could be or how difficult a person I'd be speaking to, I would speak. So I leave you with this, you CAN do this! You ARE called to be a light and you WILL make a difference! Believe it because your words have power and changing the world starts one person at a time. Let that be you today.
