My Role Models

by Britt
(U.S.)


First of all, my older friend Ashley. She is very humble , kind, and encouraging. She isn't well known, but she is awesome!

Another role model is Natalie Grant. She fights sex trafficking, speaks very well... (something I wanna do) has a great relationship with her husband, is obsessive about Jesus and sings passionate songs. The only thing is that she is so cool that I sometimes try to imitate her rather than Christ, and I know it's not right.

This video puts things in perspective for me, because SO OFTEN I idolize my dreams over Jesus. Sorry but its the truth! (Listen to what she says at 3:03)



Mandisa, she and me are both coming out of a dark season, so her new album is really helping me out!



It's hard for me to have role models who are dead. They can be inspirational, but I really can't say a Bible character is my role model, because they are gone.

Anyway, to all girls who have role models, make sure they are godly and try not to idolize them. It can be hard, because if you have a lot in common with her, you might feel like Jesus doesn't quite "get" you but He does.

I've noticed though, that every time I try to be like a person more than Christ, I end up finding myself empty, lacking and longing for what they have. People that are obsessive about Jesus, I find most awesome, because It's what i really want down deep. Many times though I get tricked that I can't ever have that, so yeah... go to something else... not true.

Another thing I find deadly is when I think someone is SO beautiful I beat myself up, but Jesus finds me captivating. And He finds you captivating too. Don't run from Him, RUN TO HIM. He wants you. So give Him all of you, that's what He wants :)
