I know it isn’t Tuesday but I really needed to share this with you today. (I pray that you will listen or read this blog with an open heart.) Wait a minute! What am I saying? You always do and that’s why I love you. Let’s get started.
When you hear the term, “Black Owned Businesses,” how do you feel? Do you feel a sense of pride? Do you feel uncomfortable? Do you feel indifferent? The fact is: many people feel uncomfortable and some people refuse to associate with black owned businesses. (Believe it or not, this statement is not race specific either.) I know! It’s sad.
Well, this was downloaded in my spirit today. When you hear the term “Black Owned Businesses,” I pray that you will find the strength to move beyond your present level of comfortability because you have an opportunity to witness how once again God made a way out of what seemed to be no way at all. When you hear the term, Black Owned Businesses, you have an opportunity to witness God opening doors that no man can shut. When you hear the term Black Owned Businesses, you have an opportunity to celebrate your present and future brothers and sisters in Christ. When you hear the term, Black Owned Businesses, you have an opportunity to interact with people who made a decision to encourage themselves in the Lord like David did so long ago. It doesn’t mean that your business isn’t important. It doesn’t mean that it isn’t your time to shine. It just means that it is another opportunity to thank God for his faithfulness because he loves us enough to give us the desires of our hearts. (All of our hearts, not just the chosen few.)
In the same vein, when you hear terms like “Black Girls Rocks” or “Black Girl Magic,” it doesn’t mean that we are excluding other women or other races; it means we were finally freed by the words written in Psalm 139:13-17 NIV. It states, “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful; I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them!” Oh, Father! You created me the way you wanted me to be, so I no longer look for validation in this world. You see, I belong to you and that makes me a princess. You’re a princess or a prince too. We’re royalty honey, and we should all be living to see the KING!!! Let’s celebrate each other.
