*Cue Madea’s Voice “ALL MY LIFE I HAD TO FIGHT “

I dream of a day when my worries and stress will leave, when all I can do is dream of the day that I’ll be able to relieve the pressure in my head that’s increasing in my brain flushing the pain away .

But How sway?!

How can I be stress free in today’s society?

Instagram can you help me? Twitter can you @ me? I’m lost in a whirlwind of  stress entangling me more and more past my insecurities and tying me down to the ground.

Vision where did you go ? Why did you leave me?

Finding life  and peace of mind is hard to find. Sometimes I  need a break, to  shake back in life and fade away from the fake.

In this season, I’m learning that over time people show  you their true colors. Friends come for a season but they always teach you a reason to guard your heart. Watch who you  trust  because putting certain levels on them  can  bust the trust you’ve given. But a snake is a snake ,always fake , it only changes it outward appearance. So stop putting your love on clearance.

 

Maya Angelou said it best.  “When people show you who they are….Believe them. The first time.”

Learning not to be a fool, but to use the tool of wisdom. Each day you learn and grow, so you can be  able to have your mind flow with peace and tranquility.

Nomaste. Be great.

What does it mean to “STAY WOKE?”…

       After spending my weekend here in D.C. I feel so honored to be an African American. I know it’s unheard of because of how many disadvantages have been presented to our race. But I believe that it’s a blessing to be brown. Why do you think people tan?

I believe in brown people of different shades who will love each other, stand in solidarity when challenged and inspire the next generation. It doesn’t matter what color you are …White,Brown,Yellow,Purple, or Black you should always be aware of how others will treat you. I call this racial consciousness. It’s been here since the beginning of time. It’s why white people don’t say the N-word. It’s the reason Asian people don’t call each other cracker. It’s the reason black people don’t talk back to police officers. There are undertones in American society that are learned and known because they have been taught and passed down form generation to generation.

But being at the African American Museum opened my eyes to the progression of African Americans in every century past. The stories I read and learned painted a picture of slavery back then. But the irony is, we as a minority group are still enslaved today in many ways. If you are a minority of any race you should acknowledge the facts.

#1 People of color are significantly overrepresented in the U.S. prison population, making up more than 60 percent of the people behind bars. Despite being only 13 percent of the overall U.S.People of color are more likely to become entangled in the criminal justice system.

#2 The so-called War on Drugs has disproportionately affected people of color.

#3 People of color, particularly black males, face longer sentences than their white non-Hispanic counterparts for similar crimes.

#4 During traffic stops, people of color are more likely to be searched than their white counterparts.

#5 Students of color continue to face harsher punishments at school than their white non-Hispanic counterparts.

#6 People of color are extremely overrepresented in the juvenile justice system.

#7 Voting restrictions on the formerly incarcerated have disenfranchised millions of voters, particularly African Americans. Seven-in-ten blacks said that blacks in their community were treated less fairly than whites in dealings with the police. In comparison, 37% of whites and 51% of Hispanics held that opinion.

Additionally, younger black men are more likely to report unjust treatment by the police. Nearly one-quarter of black males ages 18-34 said they had been treated unfairly by the police.

There are numerous other artifacts to consider. Also other issues that hahve presented themselves but I urge you to form your own thesis of racial disparities that are happening in America.

If you so happen to be any shade of Brown…. Here is what you must know!

Dear, Fear…

Dear Fear,

The truth is you almost had me. The uncanny motion of life warped around my brain and it began to be too much to bear. The walls you’ve confined me in have been safe and comforting.The place you have built has become my safe haven. I used to be a slave to you and I gave you too much credit.  I was bound up.There was no escape because the bars around my vision had no way of  breaking out.You made sure I couldn’t see the light and it felt so dark… For a while.

But one day,  I began to see your chains. I began to see your hold and death grip on me that was so tight I couldn’t breathe. Each gasp for air was an extreme cry to God. You tried to choke the life out of me but it didn’t work. You can’t have me any longer. I’m severing our ties. This motionless girl was scared to kill you. It was a bitter taste in my mouth everytime I spoke and you were there. I was the scared girl.

Goodbye fear. You have no place here.This relationship doesn’t work for me anymore. I’ve found out who I am.

Goodbye fear. You have no place here.  Because now I can see that purpose wasn’t planned. There was a level of grace that you didn’t see or understand… and His name Jesus. He lifted and sifted through all of her broken pieces and they no longer exist.

Goodbye fear. You have no place here.The  broken girl had to leave.  The girl who let people walk over her had to go. The depressed girl had to go. The lonely girl had to go. The girl who felt anxiety everytime she woke up had to go. That girl is no more. She’s left and has no plans of visiting you anymore. She’s been deleted. Finito!  Presto because that girl removed your chains from her. There’s no more room for you in her life.  There’s no place for you here. Because she messed around and figured out who God really made her to be.

Goodbye fear. You have no place here.That girl you loved.That girl became a woman. A wild woman ready to take on her own wilderness and walk on water in order to achieve her own dreams.

Goodbye fear. You have no place here.She is ferocious on the inside. She’s fearless and unmatched .She moves to the beat of her own drum. She has no limitations.

Goodbye fear. You have no place here.She is beautiful and talented. She has a VOICE that she will give to the nations. She is bright like a shining star. You can watch her but you can’t touch her. She is irreplaceable. She carries herself and drips melanin and gold. She has skin like honey and loves to share her story untold.

Goodbye fear. You have no place here. She carries wisdom in her right hand and honor in her left. She is more precious than jewels an nothing can compare with her. She is a WILD WOMAN with WILD POTENTIAL ready to take on anything that stands in her way because that’s the way God intended for her to be.

I know you think we’ll get back together. But I’m happy to tell you we have no future together. HAH This is THE END!

So Goodbye fear. You have no place here.

Watching Michael Todd

Michael Todd is one of the dopest pastors of today’s time. The way he breaks down his sermons is remarkable. He’s blazed a path for millennials to know what God really has for them .

Yesterday he spoke about how we have so little funds but we know we are destined for greatness. He spoke about being planted by God while being underfunded . Money is a monetary thing but everyone needs it. Money is what makes the world go round right?

Money is like a seed. When you invest in stocks…You want your stock to multiply right? You want your stock to grow . Just like when you plant a seed in your garden, you also want that to grow. Nobody wants their seed to stay the same. The same environment that you plant a seed in , is the same area that looks buried. When you look at something planted and something that was buried they tend to look the same. When your going through that season they tend to look the same. But what God is telling us is that your life may look buried, it may look dead , but God is planting us. Under doesn’t mean over.

God is developing roots in you so that when the enemy comes against you …You are able to stand firm in what God is calling you to do.

Under doesn’t mean over.

Let’s talk about Being Planted and Underfunded.

God is looking for people who have faith to believe that they can exceed their limitation. He allows you to be under so your faith can grow .God doesn’t bless who you pretend to be.

PhillipIan’s 4:19 But My God, will supply all my needs.Don’t blame the place for the provision for being stagnant and having no vision. Thats why so many of us want to move to LA,NY,Etc etc. Because we feel that a place will fill our purpose. But the same God that’s here with you will be where your trying to move . Millennials won’t stay planted long enough to see where those roots are. But God is doing something IN you in this season.

Organize even when you feel overwhelmed . The disciples took the little bit they had and gave it back to God. When the disciples had 5 loaves of bread and only 2 fish . Jesus blessed and broke it and gave it back to the disciples in mutliplication.

What will you do with the little God has given you?

When your planted and underfunded…Don’t eat your seed. What do you spend the majority of your money on? Will you depend on God?

As the disciples kept giving away..God kept multiplying the seed in their hands. It’s not about the outcome it’s about their obedience. They all ate..as much as they wanted . God is not asking you to do it so He can leave you depleted. Stop listening to the lie that your buried. You are being rooted .

The Wild -Woman Challenge !

I’ve been doing a 7 day Wild Woman Challenge lately which was created by one of my favorite celebrities of all time Sarah Jakes Roberts. “Who is she? ” You ask. She’s TD Jakes daughter and an revolutionist for today’s women of faith. I found her last year, and I was drawn instantly to her anointing. But she’s created a 7-day Challenge for you. In this challenge you will discover what God is really trying to tell you. Then you will have the peace that you’re searching for.

In this challenge you will do a variety of challenging things but you must not forget to hop out of your comfort zone. He first day you will be creating a wild open space in your life , so you will write down what you need less of in life. Whether that be less stress,anxiety or depression even. Whatever it is that you need less I in your life . It will allow wild open space for God to move in your life . The second day you will evaluate relationships are they helping or hindering you and categorizing those relationships that are helping you grow closer to God versus the relationships that are keeping you bound and stagnant in life, the. Ask God to release those people in your life.

Day 3 consists of gratitude . Who are you thankful for. Who do you need to say thankyou to and has been there for you ? These God ordained people that have been helping you build and grow into who you are today…Send them a text and tell them you’re grateful for them.Day 4 consists of Worship. Many times we say “I don’t know what God is Trying to tell me” it’s because your perception hasn’t been ingulfed in the spirit and most times we can get back to our center through worship. So spend 24 hours just in worship and you will see and feel a shift and change . Today is Day 5 and I’m excited for what the rest of the Challenge holds for you and I.
