I’m Alesia and I am a home schooled Christian teen trying to adapt to today’s crazy society.
Welcome to my blog!
My blog name means several things: By Reaching Higher I am challenging myself to Do and Be better in all that I am.
Instead of settling for the normal, I’ll Reach Higher by setting goals to grow strong in both my personal life and my spiritual life with God.
In this blog, I will post about My Spiritual Journey and the discoveries I make as I learn more about God and all the amazing things He's done!
"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity." 1 Timothy 4:12
As a Christian, it is our duty to spread God's word, even if it means we are resented for it.
I have brought several people to Christ in my life, and I am very proud of that.
I've tried to share my faith openly on any sites I go to, but that's gotten me in trouble.
I've been banned from my favorite game site for sharing my faith and I was very upset about that.
Then I realized something, yes, I had a right to get upset, I was banned for sharing my faith yet people were allowed to post demonic pictures?! What's up with that?! I protested this and was eventually allowed to share my faith on the site.
I had only been banned from a site for sharing my faith, yet in other countries, Christians were being captured, tortured and killed because of their faith!
When told "Deny your faith to this god of yours and we'll set you free!" they stand firm and refuse to do it, even if it means they are risking their life, which they are.
Men, women and children are captured and tortured because they simply listened to people preaching God's word.
In our life we may not be faced with life-or-death decisions when it comes to our faith, but we are still tested.
At school, people may make fun of us for our faith and tease us, but we have to stand strong and believe that God will be with us, and whatever you do, NEVER deny your faith!
By denying your faith, you are saying that you don't believe in God, and even if you are just saying it, it is still very wrong!
if you ever do begin to doubt your faith, pray!
God can help show you what to do and He can help build your faith back up!
It's not always easy to stand firm on your faith, but we have to do it, we can't EVER deny our faith, we'd give Satan too much satisfaction if we did, and he's not the one we are aiming to please.
Here are a couple of inspirational verses;Mark 6:11
Colossians 3:12-17 12:
Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
13: Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
14: And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
15: Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
16: Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.
17: And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
