hi guys welcome back to my channel so today um I this is an introduction of a new series if you will that I’m going to be doing on my channel so weekly I am going to be talking about spiritual topics um you guys can send email me in your requests or um basically I’m just gonna be coming from wherever whatever God puts on my heart to talk about and I feel like as a Christian it’s no secret that I’m a Christian I bring it up very frequently um I get a lot of a lot of my viewers are also Christians and also have the same belief that I do but this is not to say if you don’t believe in God or you’re not a Christian or you have a different viewpoint on religion or spirituality that you’re not welcomed to my channel or as if you aren’t welcome to watch this video because I welcome everyone because I love everybody and I love all my supporters and I’m just really excited to start this because I feel like it’s women it’s so important that we share our experiences and we share kind of like our testimonies and where we are in life hold on my phone is boomin hold up hello oh my god I’m in the middle of filming a video so I’m gonna have to call you after wait say hi cuz you’re on speaker might as well say hi y’all he has a channel I’ll link it on the sidewalk I’ll put I’m gonna put your picture on the side of I’ll put his picture right here y’all Dulcy okay yes oh I can’t wait to hear it okay I’ll call you when I uh I’m done I’ll be done in like 15 minutes okay right I love him so to my favorite people but anyway so like I was saying as women I want to share what we’re but what we’re all going through not even as women but just as men as Christians as young Christians and like kind of like what that means because I know and all my friends really can attest to this as well like being a Christian in your 20s I feel like it’s the hardest thing ever because we’re not like at least I could take early 20s because we’re not all the way fully developed and because we are so impressionable and because we are so surrounded by earthly things and just like flesh related temptations all the time it’s so hard and I feel like the devil is like is attacking us and the enemy I’m sensing enemy the enemy could be your alcoholism the enemy could be your cigarettes your ex-boyfriend just the enemy I’m not gonna necessarily say the devil but you’re the enemy is constantly we’re constantly under attack because the enemy knows our weaknesses and are the enemy knows kind of that we’re at this point in our lives that we can be easily swayed because we’re young we’re young and we have a lot of times people who don’t live the same lifestyle as us or don’t have the same beliefs but it looks like life is working out so well for them that they everything is working out for their favor and it’s like oh my god here I am as a Christian and I’m trying to follow the righteous way and be a righteous woman or man and it just seems like I get every door closed in front of me but I am coming to say that that’s not necessarily a bad thing as Christians we we have so much to be thankful for and so much should be grateful for and we could never compare ourselves to those of the people that are not like us because we’re not even of this world and we can’t compare what our what we’re going through and what our test and what our ability and our ventures are wherever we’re embarking upon we can’t compare that to someone who hasn’t even probably gotten what they’ve gotten ordained by God that that is not even a godly thing or what they’ve had to do to get to where they need to be so I’ve been really working on this whole comparison thing of oh my god how come this person has all this stuff going for them but yet as a Christian I have to be patient because I’m a Christian I have to be understanding I have to be forgiving I have to be all of these things and sometimes I feel like this isn’t fair why did I sign up for this and every time that I ever feel like I’m doubtful he fills me right back up it reminds me why I’m on this walk or why I’m saving myself to marriage or why I you know turn down certain opportunities or why I’m just I just am living a different like living a different life and it’s in and my life has been a testimony I promise you I promise you I promise you when you follow him he won’t let you down and um like I said I’m just talking on the subject of being of being a young Christian um like saving yourself dating as a Christian just how how he’ll test you y’all he’ll test you the enemy tests you and God tests you and um I have to say like I said this is a really hard time at this age range of being a Christian and especially with dating because um a lot of people really don’t believe anymore and it’s so sad like it’s so sad and so many people just don’t believe anymore and they’ve become jaded and just have taken on their own belief system or agnostic or atheist or wherever they decide to do and so when you’re dating it’s so important like for me when I would date her and I still do day I would used to make so much excuses so many excuses for people that I would date like oh it’s okay that he’s not actively following god at least he grew up in the church his parents are Christians and I would make all of these excuses for men that are not for me for four reasons to just satisfy my flesh and it’s so important that I when I win low mic on my other video when I said going on a date that I always evaluate my intentions what are my morals what am i what am I trying to seek out of him when I’m going on dates are seeing people and God always speaks to me and it’s up to me if I’m gonna listen to him or if I’m going to do my own thing and usually when I try to do my own thing it never works and it puts me five steps back and distracts me it throws me off my square so I think as young Christians it’s always important for us to keep our head on straight and remind ourselves who we’re cool we’re on this earth for cool we’re supposed to be with who our Adam is you know and we’re not we can’t be settling for all these randoms and all these no names and as sisters in Christ and as a sister to you in Christ I I want the best for you and and that’s what I love so much about like my close knit of girlfriends I have I can count them on one hand like really close solid group of girls that I have is we all hold each other accountable we all you know whether that be page or Trinity or Dominique or Bria just anybody that is really close to me and it’s you know to the best to the best week oh they always hold me accountable and they always remind me who I am and whose I am is God and what he wants for me and what is right for me so I think that that’s a you know that’s like a thing for all of us as young Christians and I feel like a lot of times being Christian is painted out not to be fun and you’re still living your life it’s not like oh my god it’s not like I don’t listen to rap it’s not like you know if I want to go get a drink with friends I’m not gonna do that and that’s the thing where man has put these stipulations and these rules against us like oh you’re a hypocrite if you listen to Drake or you’re a hypocrite if you go get it go get a drink with a friend and I think that a lot of times that all this stuff is misconstrued its misconstrued and it’s because we are so young and we are still human and I think that a lot of times we use Christianity as our identity and that’s not that’s not our identity that’s that’s not that’s not really I would say who we are I think that it’s definitely our belief initiative and it’s a lifestyle but I think a lot of times where people get conflicted and they get constructed and they feel constantly just teetering between should I do this or should I do that or should I do this or should I do that is because we other people outside people have been giving up giving us this or even like some pastors will give us like this guilt trip or give us this thing of like how being a Christian should be or how it should look at and I just think that all of us have our individual walks with God our own individual relationships of God and how we wanted how we want to work that out and how that’s gonna play out and how what he wants of us or what he has asked for us and you know some people can handle let’s say listening to secular music music if you will because they’re strong in their faith they’re rooted they know hey if I meant temptation feelin lusty I’m not gonna go listen to Keith Sweat you know like it’s just a matter of just knowing and balance and being comfortable and being disciplined and I feel like also someone’s like oh my god I really really am so codependent on men or women or I just whoa women or men when I’m dating and not focused get me distracted you shouldn’t be going out on dates you know I think it’s all about knowing what your boundaries are and knowing you know who’s who you’re rooted in and what’s important and what’s the focus and I just wanted to share some verses with so while that’s loading I also wanted to say that there are so many tools and resources to keep you accountable if you are new on this walk of God with your walk with God or if you’re just kind of getting jaded or you just aren’t feeling like he’s not coming through for me I’m not really believing everyone else what they’re doing look so much more cooler I want to go do something else like I I will suggest download the Bible app the Bible F is so good and it kind of works in a way of social media where you can add friends on the app and you guys can share your plans you can share your activity or share whatever sermons that you guys are going through or anything like that so i really suggest the bible app and i also suggest like getting involved in a church whether that be volunteering or connect connecting or youth groups or anything like that getting around people that are gonna encourage you and uplift you and i feel like there have been so many friends that i’ve had to drop because not because they’re bad people but because we were living two different lifestyles and because you know what they were what he or she could have been doing could have been leading me into sensation so um i think that especially as friends when you’re choosing friends like you do like together like you’re you’re you you want to stay in god zoned areas of your life and god’s own people and like I said it’s not forbidding you of doing anything that is deemed fun but it is just like holding yourself accountable and knowing that there are better promises for you and not settling I think a lot of times in these like earthly ways and all these new-age ways of dating there’s so much settling and God doesn’t want that for us he wants the best for us and he wants the desires of our hearts to be fulfilled and he wants the very best even what we want for ourselves is even if we can think of the best thing ever for our lives like he has even better for us so that’s also something and I want to share from Deuteronomy 533 is walking obedience to all that the Lord excuse me over walk in the obedience to all that the Lord your God has commanded you so basically just like walking with what he has told you if you hear him the first time or if you feel or they call it instinct or if you feel like I should be doing XYZ follow that sound never your instinct the Holy Spirit will never lead you astray ever um and so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you possess so basically just listening to him so you can prosper so you can fulfill everything that you need to fulfill and I’m telling you this walk is hard it’s not easy it’s not a walk in the park but it’s worth it and I think especially as college students it’s so tough and it’s so easy to get wrapped up in all of this like background noise what I what I consider distractions in life stuff that are like fleshly die I just I can’t even write that in background noise I don’t even like you know and and you just cut it off that’s what I can do is cut it off and get silent and be still and get around people that are propelling you to where you need to be and just you know just feeling just spinning concentrated time and intentional time with God and getting into a really good Bible based Church and just getting around really good people and I know it’s tough but I know that that’s what God wants for all of us he wants us all to be in unison and spread love and spread peace and spread his good his good doings and he’ll never let you down and it’s tough I know as a 27 year old when you have hormones raging and you have oh my god this looks so much more fun than what I’m doing or you know whatever is so much more attempting to go do XYZ because you know someone so is doing it and they find they have nothing happening then not that you know of that’s what I’m saying people only show you what they want you to see so you don’t know what people are going through behind closed doors or what sort of demons that they’re battling or what sort of season that they’re in so follow your season follow your calling follow what God has put on your heart and just stay focused girl or boy and just stay focused because God was working he’s good and he’ll never let us down so that’s basically what I wanted to shed light on and like I said I want to make this like a weekly thing of where we’re talking spiritually and if you guys want to just know my opinions on things or what I’ve dealt with her you guys want to kind of know how I’m doing my walk with God while being young and while in college I absolutely would love to share that with you guys so let me know you can email me Jocelyn Gabrielle at gmail.com and yeah just let me know anything that you guys want to hear and I love you guys very very much and stay tuned levia
