The questions which one asks oneself begin, at least, to illuminate the world, and become one's key to the experience of others
- James Arthur Baldwin
Welcome to Day 3 of Living Life Out Loud! I am super excited about today because we are ready to reveal something to y'all that has given me goosebumps since this summer. As I've journeyed with God on this writing adventure, he has revealed so much to me over the past three years. But, the revealing hasn't come all at once. He gives me just enough to know that I'm on the right track with my life and to trust that he is still guiding me on this writing path. I believe that he does that with each and every one of us.
God provides just enough illumination that brightens, reveals, or makes clear the uncontainable truth.
This summer, God placed this word courage on my heart. As you will listen in the video below, the word encourage means "to inspire courage." In order for us to live life out loud, we have to be inspired to be courageous or else we will just fall back on our wayward ways of insecurity and doubt missing this great chance to truly live.
For me, being courageous is about typing my thoughts in this space for truth-seekers to absorb. As I've done this, God has revealed his light to me in a way that illuminates my soul to live like I've never lived before. Take a moment to listen more about this topic:
This word, illuminate, is about brightening, revealing, and making clear the uncontainable truth. It's about providing a flame that lights up the dark sky for all the world to see. It's about having courage and saying "Yes, my soul glorifies the Lord" no matter what my circumstances might be.
Because God has revealed this to me, it's time I reveal it to you too. Our blog, The Uncontainable Truth, is transitioning into
to brighten, reveal, or make clear
the uncontainable truth
One thing I've learned about transitions is it doesn't happen all at once. We are in the process of talking to some pretty cool designers about possibly giving our blog a facelift. I'm also super excited about attending Allume at the end of this month to learn more ways about making this space how God created it to be. I had been waiting to share this new name for several reasons but I truly believe that by unveiling what's behind the curtain will only encourage you to keep this community alive and loud. So, let's transition together, shall we?
Choosing to live life illuminated is a decision that can be made in an instant but a commitment that takes time. As we seek to live life out loud for the remainder of our month, let's ask God to kindle this flame that is burning in our hearts to live more courageously.
Till next time, let your light shine!
