I’m Hayley, momma to 4 crazy boys, founder of The Influence Network and creator of Wildly Co., an ethically made kids’ clothing line. When I was 15 years old, I met Jesus who promised to hold still the world I felt was spinning out of control. The Good News I encountered as an early teen has gripped my attention and fascination ever since.
For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. Ephesians 6:15
As believers, we have been invited (and commanded) to take the Good News to all edges of the world. This is a massive privilege, but it’s one we can’t do in our own strength. We aren’t salesmen for something we’re fans of, we’re living and breathing examples of the power of His Spirit.
In order to go and show and tell the world of His Good News, we first have to accept and bask in the peace that comes from our identity being safe and secure in Christ. That’s great news. We can’t share something with others that we don’t really grasp ourselves. It’s not about knowing the answers as much as it is about just really knowing Christ. Abide in Him and look to Him for your comfort and peace, over and over again.
When our peace is stayed on the Good News, we can have the confidence to go out and live boldly. And really, the only peace that is real is the peace found in Jesus.
