A Streak of Boldness!

A Streak of Boldness
by Tereciah V. Smithen-Quintana

We cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard. Acts 4:20

There you are, pushing forward with the vision God has placed upon your heart.  You have seen Him work and do wonders in your life.  You’ve seen Him deliver you, change you and made you a new person.  And now you’re eager to take what He’s done for you and help others.

“Could you use some high-octane boldness?  If you want to out-live your life, you could.  As long as you are stationary, no one will complain.  Dogs don’t bark at parked cars.  But as soon as you accelerate – once you step out of drunkenness into sobriety, dishonesty into integrity, or lethargy into compassion – expect the yapping to begin.  Expect to be criticized.  Expect to be mocked.  Expect to be persecuted.

Peter said it this way.  ‘Don’t give the opposition a second thought.  Through thick and thin, keep your hearts at attention, in adoration before Christ, your master.  Be ready to speak up and tell anyone who asks you why you’re living the way you are, and always with the utmost courtesy’(1Peter 314-15 MSG).” *

This is your life. The question is, do you want to live it in such a manner that God gets the glory out of it; or do you want to live it with regrets?

Get you some “high-octane boldness” and ramp up your life!
Be Blessed!
