To all my RBW's (I'm truly sorry for anyone I forgot)... may this encourage you always

Girl, just look at you with your pretty self. You are so beautiful! Not only are you beautiful but you have the nerve to be talented and gifted by God. Hold your head up girl and know that you are loved and appreciated. Don't give the enemy any place to cause you to have low self-esteem or doubt. You are indeed fearfully and wonderfully made.

This is your year to decree it and speak it! This is the year of . So, get your step on girl. God is faithful to perform all that He has promised to you! Be confident in Him and His word. The words you speak from your mouth determine your outcome. Why not speak good and positive things over your life girl? You are not defeated but rather you are more than a conqueror. You have been through a lot in your life and look at you now, just as pretty and as strong as ever! Oh, how blessed you are. Look what God has done and look where He has brought you from.

Begin to bless God and praise Him for all that He has done, and for making you so beautiful! He had you in His precious hands all the time. Your life is orchestrated by Him. He knows you and what is best for you. Believe that He has even greater things in store for you and your family. Girl, get over the silly stuff and grab hold of faith. Seek God as never before. Sure, times are hard but God is good. Learn to love who He has made you. There is no one like you.

If by chance you are already encouraged in this area of your life, feel free to lift the next woman up. Walk in your blessed day!!

I know my response is super late and all, but this post was very touching. We as black women need this kind of encouragement and it is that much more beautiful coming from a beautiful, driven,and educated black woman such as yourself.

Whenever I come to NYC or whenever you happen to visit SoCal, I will make sure to hit you up!
