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.
