words, life, love, faith, & purity.

     This morning during my devotions, a certain verse was part of my daily reading. It's a verse I claimed as my favorite at the age of 12 when I first started really studying and reading the Bible on my own. The truth of it's simple words has become so familiar to me over the years, but as I read the commentary of the verse today I was reminded afresh of the beauty of it's call to young people. 

I remember how I typed up 1 Timothy 4:12 on a 1996 version Word document in Comic Sans, printed it out and taped it to my bedroom wall. It became my favorite verse and one I often prayed about, one that grew close to my heart.

This morning I was inspired to embrace this call anew. My prayer is that you and I gain strength as we choose to shine for Him.

May we look to Jesus to receive His grace in our lives, so that we can be examples of Him - in our words, life, love, faith, and purity.

It's a big call. But we can do it in HIS strength.
