One day you have it all together & the next day it’s all gone. But know this- everything will work out for your good. Don’t be too focused on the “Nothing” in front of you. Gather your heart, your hopes, & broken pieces. Look up to the sky & be blessed by the Bountiful! There is something so much bigger than your situation behind you. You have the power to turn it around.
So this is an allegiance that I wrote to myself in my “dream book” a bit over a year ago. I was in a very humbling and happy place. At the time I was studying abroad in London. My eyes were big and bold. My heart was open and hopeful. Lately I’ve been feeling lost and confused. To say the least, I took much pleasure in stumbling upon this. May it inspire you…
I want to evolve beyond this place and time. I want to feel the exuberance of life and love. I want to take time to taste the goodness of unforeseen opportunity and success that used to be far from the likes of my kind. I am the manifestation of what used to be only a dream. I believe that i will bask in greatness and that my company will be considered one of prestige and glory. I promise to continue to serve God. The fulfillment of life and joy burns through the pores of my skin; like sweaty palms, like palpitations in my heart, a drum that remarks on the urgency of my yearning for the overturning of all odds that have been placed against me. I am predestined and powerful…
-my solemn promise
Our skin forecasts prejudices and sets social markers on how we identify and relate with one another. For sure, this is a fact that I am very familiar with. I have often found myself at those crossroads, but now I am faced with peeling back yet another layer that I have found the utmost insecurity in. I know my race, but not a single clue about my ethnicity.

Indeed I have a problem with Kanye West calling himself “Yeezus” and (similarly people referring to Beyoncé as “Beyzus”). The reason being is plainly explained here in 2 Thessalonians 2:4 – “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God”…. This is called *blasphemy.* &so I wonder what he has to say about this – In The bible Mark speaks of blasphemy as the unforgivable sin. It’s reiterated repeatedly in the Book of Mark James Luke and Revelations.
According to Merriam – Webster dictionary the word “blasphemy” means “the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for God; the act of claiming the attributes of deity; irreverence toward something considered sacred.”
Matthew 12:31-32 – Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy [against] the [Holy] Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
And now There is a new religion based off of Kanye West (yes you read right) and it’s called Yeezianity
