Is There An App For Boldness...or Naw?




Hey you guys? What are you up too? (Like I really wanna know! Hit up my comments sections :) )

I had a pretty relaxing day. I'm in Georgetown, TX right now and it's pretty great. I had a lot of time for leisure on my hands today, which was super duper nice, but sometimes when that happens I tend to think worry about a lot of stuff, instead of going to God for the answers/ cure to my problems/issues. Wow, what a run-on sentence, but I digress.

Basically, I want God to increase my boldness.
And trust me, in 2015 he has...but I want more. And I know what I'm asking for and what it is going to take for him to increase my boldness...trails and tests. (dun...dun..DUUNNNNNN! **screams and lighting bolts**)

I know...I hate tests and trails sometimes...a lot of the times... but it is so needed. God has every ability to just download "Boldness" into me like a fresh app to your Iphone, (or Android lol )but that's usually not how it works. It takes some 'carrying your cross' to do. 

For example...most of my life I was a 'people pleaser'. Afraid to say my opinion on things because I was afraid of the backlash and I wanted everyone to like me. Everyone is not going to like me, so I can just get over that, and they're not suppose to. And that is bondage..being a slave to people's opinions and being afraid of they're reactions to certain beliefs, convictions, and viewpoints you hold. 

It's nothing but fear...and I know there is still traces of that fear left in me...and I want it all OUT!

So I asked God to bring me opportunities (even though I know the anticipation of that moment sounds painful in my head but God did not give us a spirit of fear) to be bold and state my convictions when the subject manner is brought up.

Sometimes I just chose to cop out and say, 'oh'. A form of agreeing and not agreeing while keeping the peace.

I also want God to give me the wisdom to know when to speak, when not to speak, and for him to grant me the Words to say, while also operating in LOVE...not in a manner just to prove a point.

In everything you do...do in LOVE. But love does not mean agreeing with everyone. 

Sometimes I fear being made to look stupid, and weird...but heck I'M ALREADY WEIRD! AND I LOVE BEING DIFFERENT! I want to hold on to my convictions boldly and not be afraid of sharing them.

NOT PUSHING MY BELIEFS ON PEOPLE EITHER, BUT TOO ALWAYS SAY, "THIS IS MY PERSONAL CONVICTION THAT I BELIEVE WAS LEAD BY THE BIBLE/HOLY SPIRIT/ MY EXPERIENCES! 

When that opportunity comes up (cuz I want it too so I  Christ, can work that fear out of me.)  I'll be sure to blog/post about it.

Okay..I'm HUNGRY! I'm about to go to the kitchen and get some almond butter with bananas. (yes, My plant based diet is still going strong..needs tweaking..but still going never the less.. oh wait..you guys don't know about that...well if we are friends of facebook https://www.facebook.com/StacieBabyy780, you would see that I posted that I was going on a plant based diet trial run...but I will make sure to blog about it sometime!


Jeremiah 1:9- Then the LORD reached out and touched my mouth and said, "Look, I have put my words in your mouth!

 2 Timothy 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
