What's a Christian girl, anyways?

So... shout out from this stranger! I've been busy. I have a lot of excuses I could use for not blogging lately buuuuuuut I think the biggest reason is: I haven't felt like it. I can't write good post without feeling like it, I'm not that talented. The words spill out when they are ready. 

In case you didn't know...
I'm a   C h r i s t i a n  girl. 

What's a Christian girl? Does a Christian girl have to dress modest? Listen to Christian music? Read Christian books? Talk Christian? Get a Christian education? 
-i could go on-

I think for a lot of us a Christian girl means all of that. We're a clan...a group of girls who are good, encouraging, nice. Jesus lovers. That's what a Christian girl means right? A nice girl who shines like Jesus. 

When I was younger, I felt like I always had to prove myself...somehow prove I was a Christian. I posted verses and little 'Christian phrases' all the time online. Just like some people smoke or swear to be cool, I posted God girl posts online to be cool around my Christian friends. There was nothing wrong with the posts, just something wrong with my heart. 

I'm a Christian girl... but that doesn't mean I always have the right words or I'm perfect. I guess if in the inside you really love Christ, and trust Him, and have faith in Him, some of that is going to seep  out in your actions. You don't have to prove your a Christian, you either are one or you're not.

Sooo... incase you feel like you've got to keep some holy reputation. Incase you feel like you have to be enough. Let's just think back to what that Christian girl really is. 

Christian girl: someone who's not enough but believes in Someone who is, who is more than enough

  1. Wow this is a really thought-provoking post! I struggled with the same thing in junior high. I thought I had to prove I was a Christian. But you are so right, when you are a Christian, it will "seep" out into your actions!

  2. Whoa, this is POWERFUL! MORE, MORE, MORE, MORE, MORE!

  3. Inspiring post! Have a great weekend!

  4. Ah, but the opposite happens too.
    I've always felt the more screwed up I was, the more sympathy and bonding I had with my Christian friends... I ❤️ Them but they annoy me to no end.

  5. Nice post.
    I hope you check out my blog and please follow by email.
    Also, please check out my crochet shop. I would love to make something for you so please order something!
    I can make a headband, pot holders, coasters, fingerless gloves, etc. If there's something you want made, tell me. :)

  6. EXACTLY. This is so thought-provoking and beautifully written, girl. "There was nothing wrong with the posts, just something wrong with my heart." < definitely so true. I believe that if we believe in and follow Christ, the more time we spend becoming aware of His presence, the more light shines out of us. God wants us to just be ourselves, and find our place in his loving embrace. ♥ Thank you for sharing. :)
