The adjective bodacious is probably a blend of the words bold and audacious. It’s a southern term, whose genesis began with surfers who broadcasted their admiration of an oncoming “bodacious wave.” A sense of admiration, or an attraction to that which is not diminished or moderated in intensity or severity; as in unmitigated FAITH. A few have expressed interest in the inauguration of a club of bold women of faith, who are willing to gather regularly (perhaps once a month, or weekly to start) to inspire, encourage and pray for one another. To be held at various locations in Chapala, Jalisco, Mexico. The purpose of this gaggle of ladies would be to practice love as all participants engage in acts of kindness. An EXAMPLE of the current audacious trend of known women of faith is that they are proud to proclaim the title of being a humble follower while being a “Bodacious Babe in Christ”. While the never-ending ridicule of Christians continues around the globe, a bodacious group of women is building at Lakeside. While clothed with strength and dignity; they can laugh at the days to come! They boldly speak with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on their tongues! (Proverbs 31:24-26) The launching of a Lakeside collective of amazing women who desire to lead happy, healthy and service oriented lives is now being prayed about! The truth is that all women were born with a God-given talent to share. The Bodacious Babes in Christ (BBC) at Lakeside would come together to give and receive inspiration by sharing experiences, connections, ideas and laughter. We would hold consistent, loosely organized, quarterly events. This would be to offer opportunities for women to step up into leadership, blaze a trail, or simply promote their bodacious faith in Jesus Christ. Why not join in for some fun! Would it not be thrilling to stretch your current talent and boldness for Jesus? Meditate on it, then let’s brainstorm and make it happen, only IF it is God’s will! ~~~”This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit.” John 5:8
I often ask where does such inspiration come from? Why am I compelled to log a thought, an idea. This particular BBC idea was born from a comment made by A Kindred Spirit. Have you ever wondered from whence those lyrics or why that poetry flowed? Well, this obscure poetess was not educated beyond high school, nor is this common woman prone to speak in ways that my pen moves. English or literature was not my fortay. Mystified and astounded myself as I read some of the things that pour out of me. To be perfectly honest, I believe that God has a plan to use a few of my rambling posts to touch a soul that He guides to this site, perhaps not this post, but maybe a recipe that leads them to take care of their God given temple. It isn’t about me; a benign blogger from a hiccup along a Mexican road. It is most certainly about Him and His plan to reach a soul that He brings into my life, or even what He pours through my fingertips. I am in Christ, therefore, I am not a woman without purpose. Glory be to God!
