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.

Habakkuk 3:17King James Version

THE TITUS 2 WOMAN

The Jesus Letter – Daily Devotion

Matthew 5:8 ESV

“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

Real Life Real Jesus

Modern day social media (if used in the wrong context) can be really harmful and toxic to godly womanhood. As a married woman it can be hard due to fear of your husband desiring the latest Instagram model. To the single woman it can be hard because of the struggle of comparison. It may be difficult dressing modest and godly while receiving only 25 or so likes on Facebook or Instagram. Meanwhile the wayward women may gather hundreds or thousands for being seductive… But what does the Bible say?

Proverbs 5:1-7 New Living Translation

Avoid Immoral Women

5 My son, pay attention to my wisdom;

    listen carefully to my wise counsel. 2 Then you will show discernment,

    and your lips will express what you’ve learned. 3 For the lips of an immoral woman are as sweet as honey,

    and her mouth is smoother than oil. 4 But in the end she is as bitter as poison,

    as dangerous as a double-edged sword. 5 Her feet go down to death;

    her steps lead straight to the grave. 6 For she cares nothing about the path to life.

    She staggers down a crooked trail and doesn’t realize it.

You see my friend… everything that glitters isn’t gold. What good is it for you to gain the world and lose your soul? If you use social media for the glory of God and to spread the message of Jesus Christ than that is awesome. However, if you don’t then you need to repent and turn from your wicked ways (Matthew 4:17). Start blocking and deleting those women you compare yourself to. Block and delete those Instagram models and ask God to present godly women into your life that can mentor you into becoming a Titus 2 woman!

Prayer

Father in the name of Jesus, help me to live and dress boldly for you like the Apostles in Acts chapter 5. Remind me daily that the Word of God says in Matthew 10:33, “But everyone who denies me here on earth, I will also deny before my Father in heaven.”  Lord never let me deny or betray you. In Jesus Name, I pray. Thank God, Amen.

DONT BE ANXIOUS KEEP TRUSTING GOD

Philippians 4:6-9 ESV

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
