Everyone has an opinion. Sometimes we are led to believe that the person with the “loudest” mouth is a BOLD person, but not so. Let me offer my thoughts on the matter. Living a bold life has nothing to do with how LOUD you are but all to do with standing in TRUTH. It takes guts to live out a life that goes against the norms of the culture. You may not have expected me to say that, but the “popular things” are just the “same things” that everyone do. I know not everyone follow “what’s popular” but following the culture does not necessarily make you bold but somewhat fearful. You fear to go against the crowd. If what everyone is doing around me is immoral, toxic, or just plain disrespectful/harmful, I will not follow that. I can even remember the time when I got serious about my walk with God and had to see that everyone was not happy about me following Christ for real. (Sometimes, people are benefiting off your wrongdoing, your brokenness, and your lack of wisdom/direction. For you to change is to break free from their control of your narrative.) For me, I did not want to be a “fake Christian” just like I don’t want to be a “fake person”. I wanted my life to be genuine.
Live the “loudest” life. BE AN EXAMPLE. We need more examples not imposters. We need more people living a life that match their words. I am not talking about living recklessly but living a life that someone can be impacted by. You know how to treat people in the love you share. You know how to remain mature in situations that test your growth in certain areas. You know how to utilize the talents you have to sustain a business or grow your career. You aim to be impactful not famous. And if you become famous for something, you will not lose your integrity or relevancy. A bold person does not downplay their life or beliefs just to please the ones around them. They stand true in who they were made to be by God. And one last thing….Do not be afraid of the crowd. Not everyone is going to like everything I post. Not everyone is going to like what I stand for. I am not living to be “liked” but living to be a “LIGHT”.
As always feel free to share your BOLD thoughts…Good day overcomers!
