I AM DARK BUT LOVELY
Isaiah 6:6-7 Expanded Bible (EXB)
6 One of the ·heavenly creatures [L Seraphim; v. 2] flew to me with a hot coal [L in his hand] he had taken from the altar with a pair of tongs. 7 ·The creature [L He/It] touched my mouth with the hot coal and said, “·Look [T Behold], your ·guilt [iniquity] is taken away, because this hot coal has touched your lips. Your sin is ·taken away [forgiven; covered; atoned for].”
Honestly… I really never wanted to be used by God. Not ever in my life. Until I had a Road To Damascus kind of journey with Jesus. I remember being jealous of those who would hop and skip with Jesus… meanwhile I felt like I was forced to be with God.
I mean I tried to leave so many times… I did everything I could to run from the purpose on my life.. but I cant.. Because when God has made a decree that’s it.
Being A Black Woman In Ministry
Im not cookie cutter. Im rather urban… Not to ghetto but I talk like I have sense. Yet.. I feel like the most pain I have felt in ministry is not feeling like “I look like” I should be a preacher or speaker.
I know what it feels like for people to tell me that I don’t “look like” I’m something. And interesting enough .. sometimes its my own people who are the meanest… but why is that?
There’s Nothing Wrong With Being A Dark-Skinned/ Black Woman In Ministry !
For this exact reason we NEED to stop ripping each other to shreds, betraying one another, and upholding the demonic stereotypes that the world has given us.
I believe that God is going to use us “black women” to show that we can be feminine and motherly and anointed AND have a gentle and quiet spirit all at the same time.
BLACK IS NOT KING JESUS IS
Here is the thing… In order for this to happen we as black women have to stop finding our strength in demonic music such as beyonce…kanye west.. jay z… AND FIND ALL OF OUR STRENGTH IN GOD !
Remember black woman… matter of fact ALL WOMEN that you are loved… I refuse to waste my strength on YOU but I will correct you when The Holy Spirit Leads !
Love You All With The Love Of The Lord !
