ON FAITH | THE LADY OKIE

good morning sweet readers!
as promised, this week the blog is full of a few of my favorite bloggers to have taken to sharing their faith on their own blogs- and have inspired me to do the same!

today my sweet friend amanda is taking over the blog and I know you will just adore her. 
i have been following 'the lady okie' for probably almost two years now and i keep going back for more! amanda is an avid runner (wish i had the desire to run like this chick does!) 
but also an avid Christ lover!
. . . . . . . . . . 


'It is not easy for me to share about my faith on my blog. I wonder if people will think I’m foolish. I worry they will stop following me or leave me a rude comment. I don’t blog about faith a lot, but it is very important to me that people who come to my blog know that I am a Christian.

One of my goals for 2014 was to spend more time in daily intentional prayer. (You can read about my index card system here.) I pray for my husband, my friends, and my family, and recently I was also convicted about praying for the people who visit my blog.

I know there are people who read my blog who aren't a Christian, and I forget sometimes that I have a unique opportunity to be a witness through my words to people across the country and even around the world. When I get scared to publish a post about my faith, I pray for peace and tell myself that it doesn't matter whether or not someone unfollows my blog or leaves a mean comment. I need to speak boldly and be like Paul, who says in Romans 1:16, "For I am not ashamed of the Gospel." So I pray for those who read my blog, and I pray that they will be encouraged and that they will see Christ through my words.

If you're interested in reading a few of my favorite posts that I've written on faith, I direct you here and here.'
