I honestly don’t know why I’m writing this. Maybe because I’m sleep-deprived and awake (again) at 2:30 am with Owen. Or, maybe, it’s just something that God needs me to write.
Whatever the reason, here it is: I want to be as annoyingly Christian as Candace Cameron.
Where did that come from? Well Candace recently posted an article entitled, “8 Most Outspoken (and Annoying) Christian Celebrities,” and she made it to the #1 spot! She, of course, didn’t take it as an insult, which was its purpose. She saw it as an opportunity to share her testimony.
When people think of Candace Cameron, “Christian” is the first thing that comes to mind. As I was reading, I thought, “Do people think ‘Christian’ when they think of me?”
I’d like to think so, but I’m not sure it’s the case.
I love Jesus. But I’m not outspoken about my love for Him. I think that when people think of me, they think that I’m kind, sweet, silly, feisty, etc. But do I convey to the world that I love the Lord?
I don’t want people to perceive me as annoying, but I want the world to know that I’m not ashamed of my faith. I want to live my faith. I want “Christian” to be something that comes to mind when people think of me.
Because, really, the reason I’m kind, sweet, silly, and feisty is because I have a relationship with Jesus.
