I was so blessed to be at a women’s night out event last night! The event was to raise money to help stop human trafficking. The stories of this horrible trade were sickening. Wow, it’s hard to believe such evilness goes on. At the end of the night, a wonderful woman named Teresa Richenberger gave her testimony. I’ve heard her speak before, but I hung on every word like it was the first time I heard it. Her story is amazing and, I’m sure, hard to tell, but she does an amazing job. If you want to learn more about her story, she has written a book named SOLD To The Highest Bidder. (you can click on her name to go to her website)
Teresa talks about how we need to be SOLD OUT for Jesus! As believers, we know this. We just don’t always remember it. One of the things she spoke about at the beginning was how we should be BOLD for Jesus. That is something I want more of. I want to be able to BOLDLY talk about Jesus no matter where I am or what I’m doing or who is with me. I pray that my life will show BOLDLY that I believe in JESUS.
I thank those like Teresa who help me remember this. I thank friends like Tammy Whitehurst that remind me that I can BE BOLD, because Jesus gives me the strength. I thank my former student and friend Ventura Ivory for giving me a great example of BOLDNESS! She shares Jesus whenever her lips are moving! I had the pleasure of being in the same room with these great gals at this event. So blessed!
I want to …BE BOLD!
