 He Calls Me Tee by Free Citizen {living outside the stacks} #FreeCitizen #livefree #JesusGirl

I was provided with a free tee and a free copy of the devotional in exchange for promotion on my blog and my social media accounts. 

You guys know how much I love a message/graphic tee {especially Christian graphic tees}, so when Aisha from Free Citizen contacted me on Instagram and asked if I’d be interested in helping to launch a new line of tees I replied with a quick YES!! I had been following Aisha and her company, Free Citizen, on Instagram for months… I was drawn to the message of her tees and the sincerity of her love for Christ and His people.

MY STORY 

 He Calls Me Tee by Free Citizen {living outside the stacks} #FreeCitizen #livefree #JesusGirl

I grew up in the church. My sisters and I used to joke that our first stop on the way home from the hospital was the church. And, honestly, that isn’t very far from the truth; we had to pass the church in order to get to our apartment.

My heart, it seems, has always belonged to Jesus Christ. My life? Not so much. When I was young, I was all in. But, truth be told, I didn’t have much of a choice. Both of my parents were preachers and that meant going to church every time the doors were open {and they were open a lot}. Then I hit those rebellious teen years and, finally, adulthood. And, while I always kept His word in my heart, I stopped living for Him. There was nothing about my life that said I’m a child of the one true risen King.

Eventually, I got tired. I got tired of living in shame. I got tired of carrying the guilt and burdens of my sins. So I turned to Him. There was so much that I had done that no one knew about, so much that I had said, and thought… I felt unlovable and unworthy. But that’s the thing about Jesus, He never leaves you. No matter how far you stray, He’s always right there to wrap you in His arms and show you an unfailing and unconditional love.

One day, I finally gave in to the tugging that had been at my heart for years and surrendered my life to Him. That doesn’t mean that I don’t stumble ~ I even fall sometimes ~ but He never lets me wallow in my shame and guilt, instead He forgives me and gives me the strength to make it through another day.

And that is Free Citizen’s message: there is freedom in Christ.

Salvation is a free gift from Christ to you. All you have to do is admit that you’re a sinner, ask God to forgive you, and invite Him to be the head of your life. Accept that Jesus lived, died, and rose again as the ultimate sacrifice for your sins. That is all.

You’ll want to find yourself a church and surround yourself with people who love the Lord and can encourage you in your daily walk.

THE TEE

“He Calls Me” is a new line of tees that encourages wearers to share their faith and freedom in Christ Jesus through a word that resonates with them. I chose the word “Blameless” because I used to have the hardest time letting go of guilt and I thought this tee would be a wonderful reminder that He has born my shame and through His life, death, and resurrection there is no blame or condemnation {Colossians 1:22} in Him.

The tees are comfortable and stretchy. Because they’re somewhat fitted, I’d recommend going up a size if you want a baggier fit. For comparison, I’m wearing a large, which is my normal size. The next tee I order will be an extra large. The tees come in three colors {black, heathered gray, and white} and you choose the word that speaks to your heart.
