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.

INVEST IN CHARITY

Ecclesiastes 11 The Message (MSG)

11 Be generous: Invest in acts of charity.
Charity yields high returns.

**

In my YouTube video 10 ways to become a Proverbs 31 woman.. I discussed many different ways to achieve this goal. One of my favorite ways to achieve this goal.. is by being kind to the poor. The Bible teaches us as believers that God watches how we treat poor people (Isaiah 1). The Bible says in Isaiah 1,

13-17 “Quit your worship charades.
    I can’t stand your trivial religious games:
Monthly conferences, weekly Sabbaths, special meetings—
    meetings, meetings, meetings—I can’t stand one more!
Meetings for this, meetings for that. I hate them!
    You’ve worn me out!
I’m sick of your religion, religion, religion,
    while you go right on sinning.
When you put on your next prayer-performance,
    I’ll be looking the other way.
No matter how long or loud or often you pray,
    I’ll not be listening.
And do you know why? Because you’ve been tearing
    people to pieces, and your hands are bloody.
Go home and wash up.
    Clean up your act.
Sweep your lives clean of your evildoings
    so I don’t have to look at them any longer.
Say no to wrong.
    Learn to do good.
Work for justice.
    Help the down-and-out.
Stand up for the homeless.
    Go to bat for the defenseless.

Let’s hone in on the homeless part…

God Sees Everything

Every rude or evil thing that you do will come back and boomerang back on your head. When you have a friend or loved one that is down and out…. DO NOT MISTREAT THEM ! You don’t want to mess with someone who God has in a pruning process. I believe that the time we are walking into, people will be forced to apologize for the evil that they have done to other believers…. AND YOU NEED TO!

If you are being cruel and mean, I charge you to repent and change your evil ways. Change your thinking , living, and beliefs to align to the Word of God. Your blessings are being hindered because of how you treat people.

Your prayers will come to pass when you learn the value of people. You need people. You need to treat people right. The Bible says to honor all people, love the brotherhood, fear God, and honor the king. Love Jesus and treat people the way that they should be treated.

“God is not a man that, He should lie, Nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?” – Numbers 23:19 God is so faithful, but He does something that the world doesn’t. God makes us wait. When we are enduring we encounter different emotions like frustration, weariness, anger, and sometimes we just don’t understand what God is doing. In these moments, where our faith is tried, it is important to lift up our eyes to the hill and know where our help comes from. Psalm 121:1-2 says, “I will lift up my eyes to the hills – From whence comes my help? My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.” In the midst of trials and tribulations, that occur while waiting, we have to stay rooted in the Word Of God. During the time of waiting, trusting in the things of this world is not an option according to Psalm 20:7, “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; But we will remember the name of the LORD our God.” While waiting on The Lord we pray, we fast, and worship the LORD knowing that He is going to see us through. Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” While waiting, trust in the LORD and know that He will see you through.
