My mother grew up in South Central LA… Watts to be exact.
My mother excelled in education, secured advanced degrees and even worked for some of the top judges, doctors and Fortune 500 companies, both as a certified mediator and in the field of industrial psychology.
She speaks with the elegance and eloquence of a refined and well-educated woman. But don’t get it twisted… if you push her, South Central will rise!
Cross her in a particular way and her grace goes a little GANGSTER.
I remember when I was younger, when one of our cousins came over to visit. Well, this cousin, unbeknownst to my Mom at the time, was doing crack. He stole my Mom’s brand new VCR.
This was back when VCRs were exclusive and expensive. My mother heard that he’d sold it to an old neighborhood dealer in exchange for drugs. So, in true gangster fashion, my mother came home from work, took off her designer clothes, put her hair back into a ponytail and drove to Clovis Avenue.
Since my mother had folks informing her about my cousin’s activities, she knew the exact house to enter. She boldly walked in with authority, announced the VCR was stolen from her, snatched it out of the wall of the dope dealer’s bedroom and triumphantly returned home that with what was rightfully hers!
We all thought my Mom was stone-cold-crazy..! She was. We thought she’d lost her mind..! She had. We thought she looked like a mad-woman, half-possessed…! She did. But we all have triggers, and back then, if my Mom felt violated in a particular way, she had zero fear of entering into even enemy territory to take back her stuff.
WOMEN ARE FIERCE!
When adrenaline is high, women have been known to lift 2,500-pound cars and snatch VCR’s right out of the crack house! My Mom taught me years ago, whether it’s an outfit you’re wearing or new territory you’re entering, if you act like you OWN it, no one will question you.
We have been given dominion!
We have spiritual authority in high places. We have the ability to supernaturally co-create with God. Yet how often do we bow down in fear and timidity rather than rise in the holy rage required to say “how dare you!!!?”
How often do we declare with ownership, boldness and authority…I’m taking back my stuff!!
WHERE MY FELLOW SPIRITUAL GANGSTERS AT?
“I am NOT AFRAID…I was born to do this.” – Joan of Arc (Age 14)
All fluffy language aside, who is ready to go and get their STUFF!?
Marriages will happen this year, wealth will be reclaimed this year! Visions will birth, healing will occur! Businesses will explode into seven figure status!
Peace, prosperity and clarity of thought will be reclaimed!
Count this as a holy invitation to fellow Warrior Queens… RISE! I’m speaking to women not afraid of the battle! Women who can give God a war cry! Women willing to shout, declare, decree, enter in and TAKE back what belongs to THEM!
Sunday School taught us to view God in a cartoonish, white-man in a rocking-chair in the clouds way. We imagined angels as sweet baby angels and chubby cherubims… But angels were gangster.
They fought. They killed. They SLAYED their enemies with legions, formation and strategy. We have allowed our enemies of unworthiness, complacency, shame, fear and self-doubt to kill, steal and destroy our dreams, our destiny, our legacy.
Now is the time for warrior queens and sacred rebels to rise… Those who don’t mind being radical about their breakthrough. This message is NOT for everyone, I know this in my core.
It is ONLY for those who are in holy fatigue, divine exhaustion, glorious desperation, those willing to tear down stronghold to bind the thief and to loose the promises of God. Those willing to stand and activate Matthew 18:18 by binding what needs to be BOUND and loosing what needed to be loosed!
Those willing to join in unity with a sisterhood marching in to reclaim what’s ours. Our purpose. Our money. Our visions. Our families. Our wholeness. Our LOVE.
It’s time to take back your stuff.
Rise and Reclaim.
Press in and enter.
Declare and decree.
Shout and get ready to see unprecedented breakthrough.
…in other words, go get your VCR back baby!!!
Blessings and LOVE,
