Life goal: noticeably love God

My biggest hope for how others perceive me is that the first thing they would notice is my love for God.. I want to raise my children from that love. I want to invest in my church from that love. I want to love the Bible from that love. I want offer grace from that love. If what I do can always be a response to God’s great love, I’m going to have a beautiful life. And if I already overthink how I come off to others, maybe this can be a solution. Being attentive to how I am perceived helps me problem solve. It is the same mechanism that helps me pay attention to other people’s needs. If I can harness that self awareness and consciously promote the gospel out of steadfast love, I can lean into a better way.

I am a teacher-to-be who loves people. I am not afraid of many things. I like to explain my thoughts logically on a very birds-eye view level--I was born thinking that way. I follow Jesus Christ, and I accept only that label to describe my identity--that I am a child of God, as are infinite others, regardless of their other identities. Christ is my one thing.
