Guest Post: Glamorous Girls who LOVE God

So when the founder of this wonderful, and awesome movement called God, Glitter and Glad Ministries– I felt really like unqualified to do it. I thought about calling LP, and asking her to reconsider me writing it, and being featured, but the day before I was going to call her I had this crazy dream. I don’t exactly remember what happened in the dream (sorry to disappoint!), but I remember waking up feeling like God was calling me out to do it. Thus, here we are.

Being a Glamorous Girl, who loves God, probably means a bunch of things to different people, but for me, it means the following things.

  • First and foremost, it means to be a girl after God’s heart. My number one desire in life is to please God. I love God so much, that I don’t want to disappoint him. I go out of my way to make sure I am praying every day, staying in my word, and loving every person I come in contact with.
  • It means, being uncomfortable. At times, I don’t understand where God places me, but I know in the end it always works out for the greater good (“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28). So even when I am uncomfortable or feel awkward – I know that the result is pleasing God, which is good for me.
  • Being set apart in the best, most inclusive club there is – the Club of Jesus Christ. You will gain some of the most amazing Christian brothers and sisters that are doing great things, but also will hold you accountable to your walk and journey with God. You will also be set apart in more positive ways than negative. Opportunities and blessing will come your way, and you won’t be able to do anything but thank God for the great works He is doing through you.
  • Some of the old folks in my church used to say “People should be able to see Christ in you, and that maybe the only image of Him they’ll ever see.” To me, being a Glam Girl for God, means that you are going to be held to a higher standard than other people, which isn’t always a bad thing. (“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” – Romans 12:2)

Being a Glamorous Girl who loves God isn’t about being Glamorous, but more so about having God within you, and making sure others receive God in them as well. Be a blessing to others, and you will surely be blessed.

Love and Blessings Always,

21 things I’ve learned since turning 21.

Happy June 2ND, also known as MY HALF BIRTHDAY!! It is official – today at 1:50ish am, I have been 21 years old for entire 6 months! Crazy right? Normally I don’t celebrate this day, however I thought with June being “Love Yourself” Month here at the site, I would talk about some of the things I’ve learned in the last six months as a form of self-reflection.

  1. Not everyone has the same moral code and values as you were raised with.
  2. Do not expect anything from anyone, so you’re not disappointed.
  3. It’s OK to do things alone.
  4. Breaking out of your comfort zone, is addictive.
  5. “And if not, God is still good.”
  6. You won’t get every opportunity; give others a chance to be great.
  7. I am not ready for children yet: babysitting is enough. And that is okay.
  8. It’s okay to be an introvert and extrovert!
  9. I will not and cannot make everyone happy, while maintaining my own happiness.
  10. Life is hard, but I am BARELY more than equipped to handle it.
  11. I deserve more than I give myself credit for.
  12. I am not ready for a real adult 9-5-work life. I have to work my own hours, or at least not work until after 10 AM.
  13. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I am the beholder.
  14. People are always going to have something to say about your goals and life plans – remember they are your plans not anyone else.
  15. Just because everyone is doing “more real life” things such as having kids, getting engaged, and married, and having jobs, does not mean that you are not where you are supposed to be in life.
  16. Don’t be discouraged by critics of your goals – there are so many critics without credentials.
  17. Continue to be great, and let your light shine on the world.
  18. WORK HARD – at every single thing you do. Give no less than 100% to everything you do.
  19. Always behave kinder than you feel, you never know what someone else is going through.
  20. Love fearlessly.
  21. God loves you, no matter how short you fall, or how badly you mess up. He still loves and cares about you.

Keep It Classy,
