Why I will never compromise sharing the name of Jesus…+ a bumpdate!

I know I am one of the few that speak the name of Jesus on my social media accounts. I follow a handful of ladies who proclaim to love the Lord. It’s a touchy subject to say the least. Some women feel it will hurt their social media following or that brands may not potentially work with them. While those two assumptions might true it does not in ANY way sway my decision to say the name of Jesus.

 

I have been given a voice and I will use it to glorify the Lord. That is what I choose to do with it. Some people use their voice for good and some use it for tearing down others.

I find these verses to be true:

Matthew 24:14 ESV 

And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. I will proclaim the gospel until the day I die. Proclaiming it by speaking it and by acting!!! 

 

Galatians 6:9 ESV 

And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. I will not get tired of doing good. We reap what we sow. I will not give up.

 

2 Timothy 3:16 ESV 

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, God’s word is for teaching, training, and correcting!!!! I use scripture when I am correcting my children. 

 

 

My follower count means nothing to me when compared to sharing the love of Christ. I don’t need a pretty feed, I don’t need thousands of followers, I don’t need a ton of likes on a photo, I don’t need to work with every brand, I don’t need everyone to like me, I don’t need to plan my posts, I don’t need an intern( not that they are bad in any way), I don’t need to post at a certain time, what I do need is Jesus.

 

 

If you are not a fan of Jesus then you won’t understand where I am coming from. I would LOVE for you to be able to… so if you are ever wondering what it means to be a follower of Christ or why I do what I do please feel free to email me whenever!! 🙂

 

Now for my FIRST BUMPDATE!!!! 🙂

How many weeks are you?  I am 25 weeks!

What is the size of the baby? Leighton is about 13.5 inches long and weighs approx. 1.5 pounds!

What are you craving? Cheese sandwiches with mayo only, Sour candy, pb&j WITH milk.

How are you feeling? Exhausted. After teaching all day all I want to do is sit down on the couch. I am also feeling a bit anxious bc I don’t want to develop preeclampsia later on in my pregnancy.

Stretchmarks? Just around my belly button a little bit.

Maternity clothes? YES , with the exception of a few tops and dresses! All bottoms HAVE to be maternity!

    I had no idea there were brands that wouldn’t work with bloggers just for being Christian!! Good grief, what has this world come to? To each their own, I guess… love this post and that sweet belly, momma! 💙

    That purple dress is stunning and I adore the name that you picked out!!

    One verse that has really stood out to me through this whole ordeal is this:
    Matthew 25:42-45
    42 For I was hungry, and you didn’t feed me. I was thirsty, and you didn’t give me a drink. 43 I was a stranger, and you didn’t invite me into your home. I was naked, and you didn’t give me clothing. I was sick and in prison, and you didn’t visit me.’
    44 “Then they will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and not help you?’
    45 “And he will answer, ‘I tell you the truth, when you refused to help the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were refusing to help me.’
