Empowerment Grief

From Grief to Glory

God had been speaking to me that entire week of late September 2017, “Be real with Me”, and I didn’t know what He meant. I would find myself shrugging my shoulders carelessly, not taking heed to His Word. No matter how short of a sentence, every Word that God speaks to us must be taken seriously. So, that Wednesday, I had found out that a person close to me had lost his mother that evening,…

Living in my Light

  The journey towards living in my Light began when I admitted i was in hiding. I was living in fear, in false humility and inferiority. I loved being in the background, but I secretly allowed jealousy and envy into my heart. “You are the light of the world. A city situated on a hill cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket, but rather on a lamp stand,…

Freedom from Sexual Impurity

My Story— This weekend, I fell back into sexual sin of masturbation and pornography. I allowed myself to become bored, alone, and with too much time on my hands. I gave my mind permission to wander into whatever path or found itself, and gave in. I gave in to my flesh’s desire to read erotic lust stories that I excused for “young adult romance”, knowing that my hunger wouldn’t be satisfied. I knew I wanted…

The Keys to Miracles: Faith Filled Women Unite

One of my inspirations that has definitely helped me live in my own Light is Brittany Jack and her new television series The Keys to Miracles, which aires on Blossom, a platform that showcases women of color’s dynamic voices. It was through following Jack on Instagram where God ministered to me about truly living audaciously as His daughter. Brittany Jack, sitting amongst other women of color in a welcoming environment full of love, makes sure that…

Sis, where’d you go…

I have to be honest about why I’ve been gone for three weeks.. Exactly three weeks ago, for an entire week, I was alone in my bed on a Saturday night, and because of my boredom, I allowed old feelings of loneliness and me being a “romantic” person, I gave into my flesh’s desire to go back to reading erotic and lustful “romance” stories online. Now, this may not seem harmless to the world’s standards,…

Overcoming Laziness And Mediocrity

The Holy Spirit has convicted me about being true to my word, and to make up my mind that I’m going to take myself seriously. It wasn’t until last Friday, when all the emotional high faded, that I was stuck with a decision of whether or not I was truly done operating in mediocrity. See, it’s important that we make that decision and those declarations of change, but what happens the next day when the…

How to be Delivered from Mental Bondage

I would like to share part of my testimony, of how God delivered me from people bondage. Growing up, I cared a lot about the opinions of people, especially those of close family members that had dominant personalities. Since I had low self esteem and lacked knowledge of my God-given identity, I allowed people that were not God tell me who I was, but as I got older, God strategically called me to make decisions…

My testimony: God blessed me with a job!

Waiting for God to tell you to move when your flesh wants to immediately jump up and attach itself to something is a huge fight. The battle to remain still and unmoved in God’s Presence when there’s decisions that need to be made, is a challenge within itself. That was me waiting on God to send me the job position He had for me. I had family members tell me that I need to find…
