Goal: to inspire and empower youth to live for Christ; to love others as Christ first loved us.
I’m a 17 year old girl trying to use my passion for Jesus and my love for writing to reach out to other teens going through the same things that I am.
I live by 1 Corinthians 13. I’m bankrupt without love. I want my life to be the proof of the love that Jesus has; the kind of love to lay down my life for others and give all I have to those in need. The name for this blog comes from 1 Corinthians 13:
“If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing. If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love. Love never gives up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have. Love doesn’t strut, Doesn’t have a swelled head, Doesn’t force itself on others, Isn’t always “me first,” Doesn’t fly off the handle, Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others, Doesn’t revel when others grovel, Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth, Puts up with anything, Trusts God always, Always looks for the best, Never looks back, But keeps going to the end.”
