Where: Pool Side
Who was Present: My family INCLUDING My Christian Mother! ????????
Some church folks said I'm sending the wrong message as a believer in Jesus Christ.
REALLY??? This is what scares people away from THE Church.
I committed NO SIN yet I'm being chastised for wearing a bikini at a pool...#ComeOnSon
I'm so so Happy that I'm walking in the centre of GODS will and feel 100% comfortable sharing this walk with you all!
The messenger didn't judge me, BUT the person who brought the issue to them did.
This was a beautiful growth opportunity for these three important reasons:
1.) In my heart I know I did nothing wrong. So this gave my faith EVEN more endurance!
2.) When persecuted for nothing you know you're on the right track!
3.) I'm able to STILL love EVEN those church folk who judged me!
#InTheWorld NOT #OfTheWorld
I actually know what I was thinking when this photo was taken...
"If I turn my heart inside out right now and exposed my true feelings they would have had to call an ambulance...
On Paper it was the peak of my Career while inside my heart was bleeding...
I remember being in Montreal doing press when my single hit #1 and my girlfriend was SO happy for me that she began jumping on the bed and I just sat there...Numb...
All my childhood dreams at that Moment has been actualize YET the shame of being cheated on ROBBED me of what I worked my whole life for... That's how powerful Shame is...
I had NO REASON to feel ashamed or embarrassed but the shame blocked me from being vulnerable enough to share my pain and in essence become free to soar spiritually and emotionally again...
Thank God for a praying Mother and a few great friends who kept me lifted while I continued to at LEAST allow God to use me at his will to keep singing and helping others to heal.
I'm wise enough to know that No Pain is waisted and when God needs your full attention he will MOVE whatever or WHOMEVER out of the way!
And IF we let him, he WILL use the VERY pain to push us right into our #Purpose
TODAY MARKS THE DAY THAT I HAVE BEGUN THE JOURNEY OF #ShamingTheShame and rendering it POWERLESS!
InHope this helps even ONE soul!
