I hope the weekend is going on well for everyone.
For those moments when you feel you are losing grip of your life’s vision, purpose, goals or just when you are in that place where you are in doubt about who you really are spiritually, here is an extremely awesome spoken word piece by the one and only Jeanette Ikz (my personal favourite, she is such a blessing to very many people).
It is based on the Proverbs 31 woman. Enjoy it!.
31 to be Exact.
And God said
It was not good for man to be alone so he created you.
But somewhere along the line someone changed your perspective, shifted your view.
Like Eve, you listened to the wrong voice, and took a huge tasty bite of deception
Now your stomach’s upset coz your spirit won’t digest it.
Nolonger the woman that walks in the confidence of ultimate artistic design
Submit your name change; we’ll call you compromise.
This is what haappens when your gospel is according to whoever is at the top of your playlist
And the media has become your bible
Searching scriptures of magazines, to be told you are dancing lead in satan’s recital
But you are not her, and she is not you.
Cause you are called to so much more than make up, hair, shoes and clothes and dropping it like its hot; even when we are able to
We are women of a different status;
31 to be exact,
We are content. We are not looking like anyone else because we know our diferences are not a reason to be jealous but God’s fingerprint.
We don’t run about talking about how there are no good men
We know if we try half as much effort on the inside as we do on the outside, we will stop drawing the wrong attention.
Slow to speak and quick to listen.
Receiving intervention from a higher dimension, seeking purpose watching our God given vision come to fruition.
Never forgetting, that we have been forgiven much
so we eat, we live, we breath, we give, we even sweat love
Always ready to hear from the women with silver hair.
Seeds have been sown, and their wisdom saturates our soil clipping our dead ends for growth.
You’ll find us always promoting unity, serving our communities, using our gifts and talents as an all glory to God opportunity
Wake up every morning with the grind for the most high on our minds,
Constantly being reffered to the exact of our architect design.
We have no hearts.
so here is the answer before the question:
Any man who wants our hearts will go to Christ knowing its in His possession.
Yes, we are beautiful
And barefoot in the kitchen of grace, pregnant with purpose, baking up praise, jesus is who we crave,
Awaiting to come to full term so we can deliver back what has been deposited.
Knowing good and well one day we all will be audited.
Mercy gives us second chances so we aint receive it, we outta get.
We needed an intervention.
Christ came to do loss prevention.
On a cross, He was stretched and fully extended.
And we, we were given an extension
Hear me, an extension, hear me.
Cause this price was worth far more than your most priced Indian Remy.
I know we can change the things we dont like all for a simple cost
But botox, lipo and implants aint got nothing on what was accomplished on that cross.
Cause you cant implant in yourself a new spirit or life will suck away your sin.
You can’t lap band your addictions and you cant botox away your depression
We all need Him.
Its time to change your status; 31 to be exact.
Dont be afraid of what is abstract, let the spirit of God be what attracts.
We are women of a different status, this world we will impact.
We are women of a different status; 31 to be exact.
Have a blessed weekend!.
