Duck Dynasty star Sadie Robertson is known for her wholesome image, but she recently did something that has left many of her fans stunned.
According to Christian Post, the 18 year-old just got a tattoo, something most of her fans NEVER thought she would do. However, disapproving fans may change their tune when they see what the tattoo is of. Sadie took to her Instagram page to explain her decision this week.
“I fully understand tattoos are not for everyone,” Robertson wrote in an Instagram post debuting the word “fearless” tattooed on her arm. “Allow me to explain … for every summer camp I went to throughout my life I wrote down the word anxiety for my biggest struggle. Fear began to consume me.”
“This year I made a turn around when I went to my Lord and Savior who has conquered all fears. During Winter Jam I began to give up all the fear in my life,” she wrote. “A new confidence and courage came every single night. By the end all fear was gone. I had people come up to me and tell me these words: ‘Sadie, you are fearless,’ which was something so new to hear considering I am the one who has always struggled with FEAR!”
Sadie went on to say that her tattoo will always remind her of how God has conquered all fear.
“I decided that’s enough. I am a fearless child of God. I will not fear, because I serve the God who has conquered all fear,” she wrote last week. “I’m proud to permanently have a reminder that I have nothing to fear. I am fearless in the Name of Jesus.”
Sadie ended her post by referencing Ephesians 6:19-20 (NIV), which reads, “Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the Gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.”
Sadie also made sure to say that, “daddy approved,” meaning Willie Robertson did indeed give his daughter permission to get this piece of body art.
Leave it to Sadie Robertson to use a tattoo to spread the word of God. While most teenagers who get tattoos choose something ridiculous to put on their bodies, Sadie is instead using her body art to promote Christianity.
God bless you, Sadie!
