She is not “my girl.”

She belongs to herself, and to all of the world. And I am blessed, for with all her freedom, she still comes back to me, moment-to-moment, day-by-day, and night-by-night.

How much more blessed can I be?

Learn to be quiet just as you learn to talk, because if talking guides you, being quiet protects you. By being quiet, you attain two characteristics: you are able to take knowledge from those more knowledgeable than you and you are able to repel the ignorance of those more ignorant than you.

Today, I read an article about a woman with HIV who was raped. The man that attacked her is now HIV positive. All of the commentary surround this was about how she should have told him she was HIV+ and that women with HIV should have a badge or special underwear so that this doesn’t happen to another man. It is 12:12am and I am already done with the world. 

That is rape culture

If this is true….damn…..

William Lynch stated in his letter in 1712…, (whom was a BRITISH slave owner. Yes the British were a part of this too.) Anyways he goes on to say…
"You must use the DARK skin slaves vs. the LIGHT skin slaves, and the LIGHT skin slaves vs. the DARK skin slaves. You must use the FEMALE vs. the MALE, and the MALE vs. the FEMALE. You must also have white servants and overseers [who] distrust all Blacks."
So yes, it’s true. SMDH.

And the effects still ripple through our community today. This is one of the many reasons we can’t just “get over it” in regards to slavery. Destruction of the black community, stolen wealth, sexism, and much more stem from slavery. I truly believe we did not have these issues in pre-slavery African societies.

There’s a stereotype that black people are lazy. I don’t know if that’s true, but I know white people went all the way to Africa to get out of doing work.

// Purify Me//

Despite my shortcomings and my past mistakes, I am choosing to accept the favor that God has placed on my life. I will no longer allow feelings of unworthiness and doubt deter me from experiencing the life He has planned for me. My joy is no longer determined by worldly things but yet it is found in Christ who lives within me.

Now I expect to discover people in my life may not support my change in perspective. Many will continue to hang my past over my head and discredit the changes I begin to make. That is ok with me…because if your love for me changes then you never really loved me to begin with. I have discovered the beauty in goodbye and the importance of letting people and things go when they no longer serve a purpose in your life.

Its not about being the happiest, jolliest, most carefree person all of the time.  It is about understanding that Jesus died on the cross so that a sinner like me could have a chance at living a saved and sanctified life.  It’s about having faith when everything around you says otherwise and believing that you will rise out of any situation that you have been placed in.
