Life with Jesus is an incredible journey, isn’t it?! It isn’t always easy, but it is worth every second! I hope that this blog can be an encouragement to you, and a reminder of all of God’s wonderful promises! (That was the reason behind the name btw. :D)
It is ONLY through Christ that I can do any of this, and I pray that it will be glorifying to Him! I’ll write whatever He lays on my heart, and I pray that He’ll give me the words to write. I hope that this will be a blessing, and that it will encourage you to stand firm in Christ! All the glory to HIM!!
Hi!! My name is Sierra Ruga. I am a 16 year old homeschooler from a small town in Ohio. I love studying and memorizing the Bible, writing, art, music, reading, competing in the National Bible Bee and participating in Scriptoriums. I also love spending time with my family, and chatting with friends. 😀
I accepted Christ as my Savior when I was 6 years old, but that was only the beginning of the journey! Throughout the years, God has been faithful, and has never left my side. Even in the midst of fears, doubts, worries, and tears, He was there with me through every second of it, giving the strength to continue on. He is always teaching, always guiding, always leading. Yes, the journey is sometimes hard, but I would never choose to live any other way!
God has given me the precious gift of life, and I don’t want to waste a single second of it! I want to love, and laugh, and live life to the absolute fullest for His glory! I know that sometimes there will be tears, sometimes there will be storms, and sometimes the nights may seem so dark, but I can hope and rest in the fact that God can even use them for His glory. And knowing that, I want to be able to rejoice in it! I want to do something meaningful and lasting with my life, no matter how big or small that may be. I want to serve my King with every ounce of strength in me, and to somehow make a difference for His kingdom! And yet, it is “not I, but Christ liveth in me.” (Gal. 2:20) It is only through His strength and grace that I can do anything!
This blog was a complete surprise to me, and was definitely NOT something on my “To Do in the Future” list! xD I just felt like it was something God put on my heart to do, and well… here it is! I am so thankful that God can use my love for writing as a whole new way to honor Him, and to encourage others!
So yeah, I guess that’s a bit about me and the blog. 😀 Keep pressing on for Jesus, dear Believer, and serving Him with everything in you! He will forever be by your side through the good and the bad, the ups and the downs, the sunshiny days and the storms. He loves you with the most incredible kind of love, and that will never, ever change! Keep living for HIM!
💖Always in Christ,
“…Be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might.”
~ Ephesians 6:10 ~
