When the Church Fails You: Togo, Africa

Although being sent home devastated me, I see God’s plan in it. The timing was perfect for where I am now. The issues I experienced on the Race are the topics our world is now speaking up about. I have a story to tell about the church’s failure in this area and I will. Ultimately, what needs to be known is that we cannot love the people of Africa and treat them with the utmost respect, but fail to do the same with the people who look just like them in America.  

How Do you Judge Modesty?

There is a difference between beauty and sensuality.⁣

Please stop determining varying degrees of modesty based on your physical preference, beauty (or lack of beauty 👀—yes, cause some of y’all have NOO issue with a woman you don’t find attractive wearing the same thing as another you do) or biased teachings. ⁣

Just Name It and Claim It

I know the heart behind “name and it claim it.” I believe it’s honorable. I want to be counted in the Hall of Faith alongside Abraham “who believed and it was attributed as righteousness.” But, y’all, the direct words of God spoke the impossible to him and made it happen. I believe that’s happening today because God has chosen and spoken to specific individuals that what He has said will ultimately fulfill His purpose for them and give Him glory in this world. However, just because it’s what I want doesn’t mean I’ll get it. My not getting may actually be what he uses to fulfill His plan for me and get the most glory from.

It’s Never Easy: When Doing Right Feels Like Losing Everything

But here’s the thing–God didn’t promise an easy life. Nothing about what He asks is EASY. Yes, (I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again), His ways are simple, but they are in no. way. easy. They take all the power of the Holy Spirit to carry out. It’s the complete opposite of this world and many “Christians” would even advise you not to walk in it because they spend too much time conforming to this world instead of being transformed by the Word.
