What It’s About
The purpose of this blog is to give regular encouragement to struggling, Christian teenagers like myself.
The world wants you to conform… a fancy sounding word with a simple meaning. It wants you to cast off the priceless identity that God has given you, to become exactly like it in every angle, every word, every thought, and every deed. The articles you will find in this blog are posted for the sole purpose of spurring you on to the stunning picture of beauty that God has planned for all His believers. My prayer for this blog is that these articles will challenge you to grow closer to Christ as you hear from someone who is still growing herself.
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”– Ephesians 2:10
Who It’s For
Anyone. The only requirement here is that you be a teenager who is just as imperfect as everyone else. Though we know that God is conforming us (there’s that word again) to the image of His Son, we also know that perfection is a long and laborious process that won’t ultimately be completed till we see our Savior face to face. But that is the beauty of the body of Christ. We fight, we labor, together. One, imperfect body striving towards the same goal, the same promise of perfection, and the same completion of joy that comes with an unbroken, unhindered relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ.
The apostle Paul says:
“Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”– Philippians 4:13-14
What It Has to do With You
At the end of the day, this blog is for you. Yes, you heard me right. It’s for you. You are the most important part of this blog. It doesn’t matter how many articles I write or how many topics I cover, if these articles and topics aren’t encouraging, if they aren’t helpful, if they aren’t pointing you towards Christ, than all those words, commas, and phrases go to waste. It only makes sense, then, that your feedback is invaluable. Don’t be afraid to participate! Leave a comment or fill out the contact form. Was this post helpful? If not, what would have made it helpful? What are some topics that you would like to read about? What are things that you are struggling with? Don’t be afraid to reach out, you might just be surprised at the results.
Welcome to my blog! Let’s run this race together.
