(After you've read the verses at the top of this post, answer these questions. You can write them down in your Little Faith Book if you'd like!)
If you're from a non-Christian home and yet you're trying to follow Jesus, you are one of the bravest girls out there. You're a warrior. Some days you may feel like you're alone in this fight, but you never are; God is always right by your side!
And this isn't just for those in non-Christian homes, either—your school can also be a battlefield. I know that many of you are the only Christian girls in your class, and it's really, really hard. You're daily pressured to do things that God's not okay with, and if you don't do them, you're looked down on.
So whether you're from a non-Christian family or your school is a war zone, this goes out to you!
1. Have courage.
If you've seen the new Cinderella live-action film, you probably know where I'm going with this. Yep. Have courage and be kind. These five words carried Cinderella through her weary days of being mistreated by her wicked stepmother and stepsisters. Whatever your situation is, have courage! Ask God for courage and strength every morning. You're in a daily battle, but God provides the armor you need to face each day! The "armor" you should equip yourself with is found in Ephesians 6:10-18. And just like Cinderella, God has a wonderful future in store for you!
2. Be kind.
Cinderella's ever gentle and kind spirit must have been baffling to her stepmother and stepsisters. It's the same way when we're patient and kind with unbelievers, even when they mistreat us. (If you're in an environment where you're being physically abused, this doesn't mean you should put up with it. You should get away immediately.) When you're kind to others even when they don't deserve it, you're shining Jesus' light! Even though your home or school life may be rough, you have the opportunity to shine that light on your family, friends and classmates—and you might be the only light they'll ever see!
Tips to grow in your faith.
Here are just a few ways you can grow in your faith (and these can apply to all people, not just those from non-Christian homes).
Don't lose heart! No matter how tough your situation is, you've got a God that's tougher. He'll always be faithful to give you the courage and kindness you need to face each day! Stay strong, soldier!
