Meet Ayana. A blogger, digital content writer, and follower of Christ. In this week’s feature, Ayana talks about dealing with insecurities, overcoming comparison, and finding a true source of confidence in the Lord.
Q: What does “Confidence Without Compromise” mean to you?
A: Confidence isn’t conditional or based on how I feel. It’s not based on a follower count or my achievements, but in who I am.
Q: How has your faith given you confidence?
A: For me, it’s been all about knowing it’s possible to live for something bigger than myself. I still constantly deal with fear of failure, but my perspective has changed.
Even when I fail, I know that earthly things don’t matter.
I grew up PARALYZED by my fear of rejection, and it caused so many heart issues. It was only when I realized WHO I belong to that everything began to make sense.
Q: What is a go-to Bible verse that you turn to when you need confidence or hope?
A: Psalm 34:5: “Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.” — It’s SUCH a reminder that shame is a liar!
Q: What encouragement would you give to other young women regarding living for the Lord?
A: Give yourself grace!!!! It is SO easy to condemn ourselves for not being pretty enough, holy enough, getting married too young, or being single at an older age.
Comparison is effortless, but it robs you of joy.
Take a deep breath, and take things day by day. You’ve got this.

I blog at AYANALAGE.com about everything that happens in my life. I spent so much time as a “Christian blogger” and felt suffocated by the title, so I just describe myself as a lover of Jesus who shares my life with others. 🙂
Q: How have you seen God work in your life and the lives of others during your involvement?
A: I’ve been SO vocal about self-love and confidence, and the response I’ve received is truly awe-inspiring and a reminder that we NEED to talk about this stuff!
