Strong Girls Obey God’s Word Even When it’s Hard | Vlog

By: Kristen Clark and Bethany Baird

WATCH VLOG

If you want to be a strong girl, you must learn to obey God’s Word even when you don’t feel like it.
We can’t be wimpy girls when it comes to honoring Christ with our lives. Way too many of us have given up on God’s truths when it’s hard or takes sacrifice. We’ve given into peer pressure, allowed the culture to shape our views, and have followed our emotions.

We pray you will join the ranks of (truly) strong girls in today’s culture!

We want to leave you with this question: What tough circumstances are you facing today that require you to be a strong girl for Christ? Comment below, or on our YouTube channel.

  • Hi Kristen and Bethany,

    I watched your Vlog, but I’m commenting here because I don’t have a YouTube account – and besides, I’m not so sure I want my comment on the main thread where people will heap abuse on me. Hopefully you’ll see it, and maybe even respond.

    The thing that I’m finding so hard as a Christian girl is how do I reach out to and connect with Christians who think that I’m a depraved pervert just because I’m also transgender? Besides that – associated with it, I guess – is the difficulty in forgiving the Republicans for making it unsafe for me to use public restrooms. How do I forgive them for passing laws that literally put my life in danger if I obey them – and that place me in legal jeopardy if I don’t?

    On a different note, one thing that is really hard for me as a Christian girl is just coming out as Christian. I’m a transgender activist, and one of the things I do often is speak to college classes, sexuality classes, and agencies and businesses to help them understand and interact respectfully with trans people. It’s really hard and scary coming out as transgender, never knowing if your family member will disown you, or your boss will fire you, or you’ll lose your friend (I’ve lost some very dear friends, all devout Christians); but in my presentations, it’s also really hard and almost as scary to come out as Christian – because many of the people I’m talking with associate Christianity with bigotry and hatred.

    Guess you know how that feels, too, huh? Not fun.

    Anyway, I catch it from both sides.

    So how do I reach out? How can I connect with love and respect to people like you, when I’m so afraid you’ll have nothing but contempt for me?

    I’ll leave you with my prayer: Psalm 139: 23-24.

    God bless,

    Seda

    Thanks so much for this post. I love the encouragement and challenge I get from reading it. I’m definitely going to try and be a strong girl, even when I mess up, I’ll just get back up and try again. Blessings.
