I’ve tried to write out this post a million times, but it never seems to go right. No matter what, I can’t get out what I’m trying to say. Either I explain myself too much, or I am way too vague and general. Well I am getting annoyed, so I’m just gonna write out what I’m feeling. So here we go!

I love Jesus! I love Him with every cell in my body, and my faith is such a huge part of who I am. You might be thinking, “Okay? Why are you telling us this?”, Well, because, I have never really talked about my beliefs here, and it has left a big hole in my heart.

When I first started this blog, I decided that I would not talk about my religion here in fear of offending anyone. I did not want to come off as someone who was pushing their beliefs on others, so I decided it would be best if I didn’t include it on the blog. But as I become more personal here, and The Girl in Sequins becomes more of an outlet for my thoughts and feelings, I realize that I am leaving out the biggest piece of me. My faith is my everything. All that I am is because of Jesus. I must not be ashamed of my love for Him, because he was not ashamed of His love for me, for us.

My relationship with God is still a bit fresh. While I have always believed in Him, it wasn’t until a few years ago that I began to really get to know God during a really dark time in my life that I hope to be able to share one day. I am at such a crucial point in my life. I just started college, and I am learning to lean on God in a whole new way. This past month, I have taken steps to draw me closer to Him. I’ve joined YoungLife, a Christian group here on campus, as well as a small group where we are studying the book of John. I love it so much, and it has made me realize that I have a voice. That I have the ability to share God’s love, and that is just what I plan to do.

So what does that mean for the blog? No, it will not become a Christian blog entirely, but I will have more posts centered on my faith. This blog has been such a blessing. I love having an outlet to really just poor myself into. By bringing in my love for Jesus, I can only see things going up from here.

I have wanted to take this step for so long, and I am so happy I finally got the courage to do so. I am very grateful to have this blog, and to have readers who are willing to join me on this crazy journey of mine. I truly believe that God has called me to share His word here, and by doing so, great things are bound to come out of it. I pray that this blog can be a blessing to even just one person, and that I will grow out of it.

Romans 1:16 - For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

Love always,
