Hello my name is Olivia!! I am 17 years old, I live on a 50 acre farm with my Dad and Mom, 3 sisters and 4 brothers.......... I am so blessed by the gifts God has given to me!!!!!!! My Mom has been, and still is my BEST friend and mentor, as well as my Dad. I have such a close relationship with them. I truly admire my Mother as a woman, a wife, a mother and as a Christian following and loving Jesus....
She helps me to see and understand things in ways I have never thought of them as. My Dad is the most precious father I could ever imagine having! He is there for me to rely on and talk to when ever I need him, and his gentleness, sternness, and love, as a Father has brought me so close to him. I am honored to be in their life and to be their daughter!!!!
I think sometimes, "I am so blessed to have been raised to love, follow and seek God"..... There are so many people that don't have what I have. It helps me see the importance of helping people to love God and serve Him, we can never be fulfilled unless He is abiding within our heart and soul.
My desire is to follow God and and help people to follow Him. The bible says in 1 Peter 3:8, Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous..... I believe God is calling us as a body to come "together" and be of one mind and faith, loving one another as He loved us. We are called to "Go ye into all the world"....
There are so many people that need to know the testimony and faith of God,
So many that need to see His love. When we are living examples of His word, we shine a light into people's lives and they want what we have. That light is from God. I know in my heart God wants us all to lay our lives at His feet, and give them to Him. I feel like God is going to use me to help people to come to know Him and believe on Him. Even if it means to suffer for His names sake, I feel like my love for Him is stronger than my life.
I know it's easy to say that, but in reality it's terrifying, but God is our deliverer and He will never leave us nor forsake us. That is such a comforting thought.
I have been raised with this mindset, that no matter what....I do not "ever" forsake His name nor deny Him as my Lord and Savior.
I want to be united with believers that have this vision. People that have a purpose for being on this earth. The bible says "Where there is no vision the people perish"..... Let us all have a vision..
