is my favorite color.
It’s been my favorite color for at least around a year, for pretty much just one reason.
ORANGE is a bold color.
I mean, when do you ever not see orange?
Yeah, that’s what I thought. Um, never.
Orange is my favorite color because it’s a reminder to be bold. To stand out. I want to shine and be seen like orange is. I want to stand out to the world about who I am as a person, just as orange stands out among the other colors.
And when I say stand out, I mean STAND. OUT. I mean, I say I wanna be like Jesus, and Jesus certainly stood out in the world He entered. What’s more shocking than a 12-year-old teaching older men who’d studied religious teachings for years? What’s more shocking than the miracles He performed? Or how He always managed to answer the Pharisees’ questions in a way that left them wondering what was going on, when they thought they’d always known?
Jesus stood out.
I want to stand out too. I wanna be bold.
Orange speaks powerfully to me. It’s an unconventional color, and so I’ve chosen it to represent the unconventional lifestyle I want to have. So this is my reminder today, to stand out and be bold.
