Making a Difference

Hey, brave heart, I love that you will jump into the unfamiliar. I love that you are bold. I love that you dare to do what I am asking you to do. I love your passion to pioneer. (Isaiah 42:16)

So be free to become the beautiful you I have created. (Ephesians 2:10)

Let go of what others say and find freedom to walk in your authentic identity in Christ by allowing my Words to frame your soul. (Galatians 1:10) Let go of every other hand you are holding so you can grab tightly onto mine. (Proverbs 29:25) 

I am looking for someone whose heart is fully committed to me and not afraid to walk differently by following me completely. Walking outside the world-defined box takes you beyond what is temporary into living for eternal treasures. (2 Corinthians 4:1418) 

My presence and my purpose for you do not promise the absence of adversity; rather, they provide the assurance that you will never face adversity alone. (Hebrews 13:5) With me, you have a love that will never let you go. (Romans 8:38–39)

The Pioneering Spirit inside You

You see, I need someone to be first. (Isaiah 42:16) Yes, I am looking for the pioneering spirit inside you that says, I will not settle for what has always been. I want to uncover what can be. I need you to be the first in your family to walk a different way. (1 Peter 1:18–19) I see the generations beyond you who can be blessed. Indeed, my child, I have created you for this time appointed under heaven to leave blessings in your wake as you live for me.

When I formed the world, I did not rest until I’d made a woman, because she was needed to complete my plan. Today I still work to release the God-given potential within women, because they are an important part in a great story written for my glory

So don’t be afraid to jump out of the boat. I created you to be brave! You’ll leave ripples of eternal blessings when you walk in courage, trusting in me. Fear is something you learned. Love is what you are wired for, and you’ll walk in love when you follow me because I am love. 

My dear daughter, if I am for you, who can be against you? (Romans 8:31) My perfect love can cast that fear right out of you. (1 John 4:18) Nothing can separate you from my love—and my love is enough. 

So walk in that security. If worry walks through the front door, push it back out by casting all your cares on me and trusting me with your whole heart. (1 Peter 5:7) And if waves of adversity steal your focus, get your eyes right back on me. (Matthew 14:30; Hebrews 12:12) Find a promise in my Word and cling to it with all your might. (Mark 4:20)

Yes, brave heart, flex your faith muscle. Walk differently by living fully for Christ. You are bold, beautiful, and brave.

Making a Difference by Doing God’s Will

Jesus said, “My nourishment comes from doing the will of God, who sent me, and from finishing his work.” (John 4:34, NLT, emphasis mine).

God’s will for us is revealed through his Word. As we respond to the Word and walk out God’s will for our lives in faith, the nourishment we receive will flow to others and we will become more and more the women God created us to be.
