Do You Have the Courage . . . ?
My sweet 15 year old Hosanna wrote a powerful blog post this week:
Let me share an excerpt:
Here we are another time. Another day. Another post. But what is it all for?
Is it so we can have lots of followers?
Is it so we get lots of comments?
Is it because we have nothing else to do?
Is it because we just like to write?
Is it so we can share our photographs?
Is it because we want to feel in with the crowd?
But most importantly is it a place where all the glory goes up to God?
Here on my blog. My little corner of the interwebs. I hope all the glory goes up to God.
I hope that you all can see that I love and serve the creator of the universe.
Some people think that one day they will be able to tell the whole world that "all the glory goes up to God".
They are waiting for the day when the whole world is watching to say
"I give all the glory to God!"
(Hosanna then tells the stories of a couple of Olympic athletes.)
Would you have the courage?
The courage to tell the world that you believe?
The courage to tell your town?
The courage to tell your school?
The courage to tell your friends?
The courage to write it on your blog?
Dont wait til you're in the olympics or you're famous.
Cause really how many of us are actually going to have the whole world watching?
But we do have people watching.
Our friends are watching.
Our school is watching.
Our readers are watching.
Our families are watching.
So lets tell them, the people who are watching.
That He is lord
That He does live today.
That He is coming back again.
That He loves them.
That He has a plan for them.
He has a plan for you.
A plan for me.
A plan for the world.
Will you join me in telling the world?
I hope you will pop on over to Hosanna's Blog to read the whole post;
I know you will be blessed by her words of challenge and encouragement.
And . . . if you leave her a comment,
I know that she will be blessed by your encouragement.
