When people meet me, I’m often showered with nice compliments on my attire, attitude, and demeanor. While I do appreciate the sweet sentiments, what I really want is for people to see beyond my clothes and poise. I want them to see Christ in me and be so wowed, that they seek Him for themselves. Representation matters and if I’m honest, I want to represent Him better. I’m not a saint, nor am I Satan, but I want to live my life in a way that pleases God. There are a few things I am working on that will allow me to be the best version of myself, which I need to be, especially if I’m going to represent Him. A lot of times I feel I haven’t been catapulted to my highest potential, due to some very old habits that are hard to lose, but I know I will prevail. Ever since I became serious about my faith and being obedient to God, it’s been very challenging and hard. The past few years especially has been a very long walk, but I wouldn’t change my journey because God’s used it to change me. I know I will never be an angel or devout Christian in everyone’s eyes, nor am I aiming to be. However, I am aiming to live, act, and think in a way that God expects me to. He said in His word that “we are created in the likeness of His image,” and when people see me, He’s who I want them to see.
