For my first post, I thought I’d tell you a little about me! Here are five words I would use to describe myself.

Loved

“But God showed His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

God loves me so much, just as He loves you. God sent his only son, Jesus, to die for you because of how much He loves you.

I know that I am also loved by my family and friends

Creative

God has gifted me with artistic abilities. I like to write, draw, paint, Bible journal, and play piano.

Kind

“Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God…” 1 John 4:7

I love because He first loved us, and loving others is one of the most rewarding things on the planet. Complimenting someone and making them smile is one of my favorite things to do.

Forgiven

“In Him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.” Ephesians 1:7

Christ died on the cross so that our sins would be forgiven! No matter how big or small the sin, it is forgiven, blotted out, erased, forgotten by God.

Flawed

Despite my best efforts, I still fall short and mess up sometimes. I’m still a normal teenager who is disrespectful to her mom, who gossips from time to time, who disobeys her parents. But God’s grace covers all of my sins, and I am so so so thankful for love and forgiveness.
