Combating Natural Hair Racism  

Combating Natural Hair Racism  

But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the LORD; their vindication will come from me. I, the LORD, have spoken! – Isaiah 54:17 

Shopping While Being A Black Christian  

Whew… This is a post I really kind of do not want to write because again… I am private. This is for my African American followers! So, as some of you know I am multi-cultural. My man made me take a DNA test because he did not believe I was fully black (he was right). I swore up and down I was all Black but apparently not. The test confirmed that I am Nigerian, Irish, British, Mayan, Argentine, Native American, Bolivian, and Peruvian among some other things.  

Follow along as much as you can while I write this.  

So I have natural hair (which is why he thought I was mixed because of my hair). My hair does this thing where it is like straight like white people but half-way thick like I am Black… Yeah. But anyways, I was praying and one day God begin to speak to me and he said “stop using the conditioner that you are using because it is racist”.  

So, as I am praying, I am sooooo stunned. Because I’m like God, but I have been using it for years. Fastforward as I am doing some shopping, the Lord told me to look at a particular section and it was the “Ethnic” section and there it was … A horse shampoo in the “Ethnic section.” Then God told me to walk to the other “regular” section where typically people of Caucasian descent shop at. To my surprise all the minerals and things we as Black people need for our hair is in their shampoo… but not in ours… we get a horse for our hair products, and they get flowers and watermelon.  

The reason I did not want to write this is because I do not tell people what I personally use because some people online are simply weird. But God wanted me to say this. There is no reason that black hair products should have animals on it such as monkeys and horses… But the others do not. I am going to put a picture to show the difference. We need to stop supporting these so-called beauty companies that compare black hair to animals.  

Prayer  

Father, help me to simply focus on you. In Jesus Name, Amen.

PRAY WITHOUT CEASING

The Jesus Letter – Daily Devotion

New International Version

“no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me,” declares the LORD. – Isaiah 54:17

Real Life Real Jesus

I have this saying that goes “Life is so much better with God.” Truth be told life is extremely hard and can be difficult. Sometimes we have children who talk back to much, a husband that does not love us, and people who just do not understand your daily struggles. When we go through these moments we should remember not to run to void fillers but instead run to the arms of the true and living God. I know from personal experience that when nobody seems to love you God can and will.

New Living Translation

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. – Jeremiah 29:11

Prayer

Father in the name of Jesus, remind me daily that we wrestle not against flesh and blood (Ephesians 6:10-20). Through you I wear and carry the full armor of God.  Thank you Lord for your protection. Comfort and encourage me Lord as I walk through my daily life. If any sin should hinder this prayer, I repent and ask to be forgiven. In Jesus Name, I pray. Thank God, Amen.

IGNORE THOSE WHO LIE ON YOU

The Jesus Letter – Daily Devotion

New King James Version

“A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back.” – Proverbs 29:11

Real Life Real Jesus

Man… Have you ever been in a situation where you just really wanted to tell someone how you really felt about them? I know you have imagined walking up to them and letting them have it… But from a Christian point of view what would that do? When Jesus faced persecution, he knew how to answer a fool according to his folly, that is why He spoke in amazing, crafted parables. The Bibles says in Proverbs 26:5, “Be sure to answer the foolish arguments of fools, or they will become wise in their own estimation.”  When we deal with someone who is lying on us and causing division it is always best to pray to God for wisdom on how to deal with persecution.

Matthew 5:11 Berean Literal Bible

Blessed are you when they shall insult you and shall persecute you, and lying shall say all kinds of evil against you on account of Me.

Daily Bible Scripture Devotion

The words of King Lemuel, an oracle that his mother taught him: O my son, O son of my womb, O son of my vows, do not give your vigor to women, or your ways to what ruins kings. It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine, or for rulers to crave strong drink, lest they drink, forget what is decreed, and pervert justice for all the oppressed. Give strong drink to one who is dying, and wine to those who are bitterly distressed— let him drink, forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more. Open your mouth on behalf of those unable to speak, for the justice of all who are destitute. Open your mouth, judge righteously, plead the cause of the poor and needy. An accomplished woman who can find? Her value is far beyond rubies. Her husband’s heart trusts in her, and he lacks nothing valuable. She brings him good and not harm all the days of her life. She selects wool and flax and her hands work willingly. She is like merchant ships, bringing her sustenance from afar. She rises while it is still night and provides food for her household and portions for her servant girls. She considers a field and buys it. From the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard. She girds herself with strength and invigorates her arms. She discerns that her business is good. Her lamp never goes out at night. She extends her hands to the spindle and her palm grasps the spinning wheel. She spreads out her palms to the poor, and extends her hands to the needy. She is not afraid of snow for her house, for her whole household is clothed in scarlet wool. She makes her own luxurious coverings. Her clothing is fine linen and purple. Her husband is respected at the city gates, when he sits among the elders of the land. She makes linen garments and sells them and supplies sashes to the merchants. Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the days to come. She opens her mouth with wisdom— a lesson of kindness is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and bless her, her husband also praises her: “Many daughters have excelled, but you surpass them all.” Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears ADONAI will be praised. Give her the fruit of her hands. Let her deeds be her praise at the gates.
