I Stand

I'm going out on a whim here and writing exactly what's on my mind and heart before I have time to process it, get scared and back out.  So for all of you, this is me and what I believe...

It is time.  And we are willing.  What is next I do not know, but we are willing.  So here goes.

I believe in Jesus.  Yes, I said His name.  A name I've been covering up with other mentions of who He is in fear of offending someone.  In fear of losing followers.  In fear of being rejected.  But I wont let fear or the desire to be popular take away the very essence of who I am:  A child of God designed to bring Him Glory!

I believe that Jesus is the only way to get to Heaven.  I believe that Jesus is God's Son, who came as Man to take our burden of Death and die our penalty so that we might have ETERNAL LIFE.  I BELIEVE IN JESUS!

I am speaking {or typing really} who I believe in because there are many of you who have't fully understood my previous posts.  I am not here to attack anyone and I will not entertain comments or emails attacking me.  In fact, for this specific post, I've disabled comments.  Because I don't want praise and I don't want ridicule.  I want to make Jesus' name known throughout the nations, and part of that for me is where I reside; the blog world.

I believe that I am given breath so that I might bring Glory to God by making disciples of all nations.  I believe that all that I have been given is so that God might bless other's through me.  I believe that I am not perfect {as you've read me mention many times before}.  I believe that I am weak.  I believe that I am not courageous or great.  But I believe in all of that I can be used to do great things and make Jesus' name glorified throughout the world.

I believe that Love has already conquered all and that the things I sometimes fear in this world has lost its grip on my heart and I am a daughter to the KING!  

"No guilt in life, no fear in death, 
This is the Power of Christ in Me
From Life's first cry, to final breath
Jesus commands my destiny!
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His Hand
Till He returns, or calls me home
Here in the Power of Christ I Stand!"
