    4 Ways to Be a Confident Christian!

    It’s not always easy to put your faith in God. Many times we question, why is this happening to us?  How could God be so unfair? Although we don’t know all the answers, God always has our best interests at heart and protects and loves us even through the hard times. Here are four things every faithful girl should know:

    1. Not everyone is going to accept your beliefs! It’s often hard to stick up for what you believe in, especially when you feel like you’re going against the dominant thinking of your friends. However, once you verbally express your faith in God, you’ll be a leader and subconsciously let others do the same. God smiles every time you do right, and just know, there’s no one more important than God to make proud. You won’t regret it!

    2. Be respectful of other people! Sticking up for what you believe in is one thing. It’s a whole other thing when you criticize another person for not belonging to the same religion as you, or perhaps in their lack of faith in God altogether. The best way to get your message across as a Christian is to be a good example, and express love and patience with the other person.

    3. Don’t let your emotions get the best of you! This one sounds easier than it actually is. When a girl is mean to you, your coworker criticizes you, or your parents upset you- work on trying to forgive them. Pray to God for help and He will strengthen you and make it easier. You must learn to love your enemies, even though it may seem impossible. When you do, you’ll be liberated from your anger and take the higher ground.

    4. Love God with all your heart and soul! He loves you more than you can comprehend, and holds you in the palm of his hand. It’s worth the effort to make Him happy and do right! He knew he was going to create you even before you were born, and he’s always with you every moment of the day.

      • Right? It really riles me up when someone criticizes Christians for believing in an “imaginary sky daddy” to quote someone recently. God is obviously so real. So as you can see, #2 is a bit hard for me too. Haha. I’ll pray for you and I in that area.

      • But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven(Matthew 10:33) It is bad to hide one’s beliefs, because in doing so you are saying you are ashamed of Jesus Christ. As christians we must stand firm in our beliefs. In doing so, we not only defeat satan but give courage to others as well who are struggeling. I pray she overcomes her fears quickly so that she may truly feel the love of Jesus in her heart.

    1. The thing I have the most trouble with is not judging people. Whenever someone says they’re a Christian, but then I hear them cussing or something, I just assume they’re lying. I also judge the “trashy” people.

      • Well, in the bible somewhere it said that it can be beneficial to judge others. It’s good to judge what is evil and what is good, but make sure that you are not using your judgments in a negative way. Whenever you think that way, pray that God will strengthen them in their faith, then forgive them for they are the victims, show them patience and love when you can, then continue on.

    2. Thanks for this article!:) And would you mind praying for me, I do the school talent show every year, and it’s coming up this next May. I was wondering if you would pray for me to find the right song to speak to people. And that when I do sing it that God calms my nerves I feel bad but I do get nervous when I speak up in song about God. Or just performing in general. Thanks!:) – Lizzie

    3. This may be random, but this is my first time seeing this website and I’m loving it already!! But the more I look at it a question comes to mind. Here are the questions: Do you go to church, “Nicole”? I know being religious/believer of God and having a true relationship with Jesus has nothing to do with going to church, but are you a believer?? It’s great that you are giving advice and helping us young teens out in this world with all the temptations and what not to do, but I want to know if I am getting guidelines from someone I can look up to. I don’t know you, but what I want to know is are you a fake christian or a real one? I love this site. I’m not “downing” you. I just want to know.

    4. I have an atheist friend. I more feel for sorry for him than judge him. Why try to hide your beliefs. Instead shouldn’t we try to save lives and share it? It is easy to judge, but that doesn’t make it right…

    5. I’ve been wanting to be a model, and I went to an event and got two callbacks from two agencies. When I was taking headshots to send to one of the agencies, I noticed my nose. It’s bigger than normal and has a very noticeable bump. My family has always had big noses, and my mom and all of her siblings (8 total!) have gotten cosmetic surgery. My sister’s now getting surgery this summer, and I’ve been feeling pressure, some from myself, to get surgery also. I really don’t want to have to do this, and I want to be able to embrace myself the way God made me. Is it okay for me to get my nose done, or will my hope of one day being a model never become reality if I don’t? Please help!

      • Hi, I know you posted this a while back but maybe you’ll see this anyway. I think it would be best if you didn’t have the surgery, God is perfect thus everything He made is perfect and beautiful even when we don’t see it, trying to re-make your features I think would be like trying to tell Him He made a mistake somewhere in creating you and you would have done a better job that. God knows why He made us the way He did but I think if you’ll still in doubt you should pray to Him about it and He’ll find a way to get back to you.Good luck in your modelling:).
