Shine On, Sweetheart.


How are you going to SHINE for God?
How are you going to be different than all the rest of the world? 
What will set you apart? 
How will the world know you belong to Him? 
How will you distinguish yourself? 
Will they see your light SHINE? 
Will you be a light? 
These are the questions that have been haunting me over the last few weeks. I realized how short life is by a story about a mother of 6 special needs children, which they adopted, who suddenly died, leaving the hubby to take care of all that plus be the breadwinner. Life is so short. God could snap His finger right now and take anyone home. 
But God is so awesome. Who knew my life would turn out this way? I am in the process of officially being on the radar screen of the biggest modeling agencies ever. Models.com. Go there. Look at the Top 10 modeling agencies. I saw them. I met them, They’re interested in me. But why has God allowed my life to go in this direction? Because here is a girl who is after God’s heart. One that wants to be used by Him; willing and able to do whatever He wants to do in her life. That’s me.
I want to be used for His glory so the world may know. I’m not just saying that. “Whoever says that she lives in God must live as Jesus lived.” ~1 John 2:6 I want to live the way Jesus lived (probably minus the heat and bare feet on rocks part. Oh, and that pita bread stuff. Yuck.) 
I want to be a light in this industry that so desperately needs it. Even if I don’t go anywhere and this all fizzles out, I’m still running for God, wherever he has me.
Check out two verses about showing God to the world.
“You should be a light to other people. Live so that they will see the good things you do and will praise your Father in Heaven.” Matthew 5:16

"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it." John 1:5
What about you? How will you be a light and shine for Jesus? How will people know that you’re different? Everyone’s going to die. Only a few will die after making a difference. 
I want to make a difference. I am so ready. Shine for God.
So shine on, sweetheart.
