Who Does She Think She Is?

Just five minutes. For just five minutes I will share something that I’ve been avoiding for much of my life as a triple minority. I’m an African American, woman, with Bipolar disorder who loves Jesus. I wouldn’t feel so much secret shame if that was the end of my story, but God had the audacity to call me to preach and teach. I said but God, I am a woman and I have Bipolar Disorder. Not to mention I meet every governmental guideline for poverty.

I reside underneath the underdogs of America, yet God called me. Me, with the chronic pain. Me- manic me. God has chosen me to preach and teach to those that would receive Him. So that’s the testimony that I hide from for fear of being exposed. But the difference today, is that my way into destiny is coming up from under the rock of shame, guilt, perfection, deception, and just be LOVED. So yeah, I am flawed but called. I also am not defined by my inadequacies. But rather I use the aches from the thorn in my side to push me to the finish line. Testimony in five minutes…done.

  1. Thank you for being so honest, so candid!! You are a beautiful picture of how God uses broken vessels, how He takes the broken pieces of our lives and puts them back together more beautiful than before. If He didn’t use the broken, He would have no one to use. I commend you for answering His call and trusting Him to use you regardless of your brokenness. He is your/our adequacy, your/our equipper! Hallelujah! God bless you in all you do… to GOD be the glory, dear sister! 🙏🏻✝️🎉🙌🏻💖
