10 Jan Passion Conference 2018 Reflection + New Content
God has recently placed something very big on my heart and called me to say yes. The lord is calling me to do something new with my YouTube channel. Refer to Isaiah 43:19, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” I will be posting two videos a week: one pertaining to faith/Jesus, and one relating to fashion/lifestyle. I always talk about making more faith videos, but then I make up excuses. I worry about perfection and the number of my subscribers. However, my videos will never be perfect and that’s impossible. I am a human and I am not capable of perfection; only Christ is perfect. I struggle with being a perfectionist. I can not expect myself to take on the role of God. I’m not qualified, but I am called. We are not called to be qualified. We are simply called to say yes. Blessings only follow actions, not good intentions or talk. I want the lord to fulfill his will in my life, and I do not want to stand in the way of that. Second, the number of my followers does not matter. Jesus had 12 followers, and those were his 12 disciples or apostles if we’re quoting Matthew 10:2. The lord has blessed me with 17,223 on YouTube alone. Why have I let the enemy win for so long and shrank back in shame? I have been concerned with my views being “low” and my subscriber count not growing. All that matters is God is being glorified through the platform he has given me, and in our lives. We were all created to worship God and glorify him: that’s your purpose, each and every one of us broken humans. With God, we are made whole and beautiful. Through my content, some one out there hears the name of Jesus or hears the wonderful truth of the gospel, brought from death to life. This is my focus, and this is my mission, I want all 7.6 billion humans to know their loving father and cultivate an intimate relationship with him. These are God’s new plans. Woop woop, get excited! You can even join in and make your voice heard through voting on the polls posted on my Instagram stories about new content. Follow along @dariasmithyt.
