Not really a newsletter, more of a late-night bedtime story for grown-ups. Years ago, when I was involved in Christian music, dealing with the typical jealousy that accompanies gifts was familiar. Even with that, I enjoyed a growing fan base, frequent shows, and countless opportunities knocking at my door, not just as an artist but as an entrepreneur. However, when I stepped away from Christianity, it seemed like everyone else did too—not the religion, but me! It was a bitter pill to swallow, but Yah guided me through. I witnessed firsthand how differing perspectives can separate and divide. Though a few remained loyal, most vanished into thin air. Discovering the truth about Yah's chosen people and their history parachuted me into a new community, which initially seemed promising. Yet, roadblocks emerged once again: encountering false friends, envy, controlling individuals, cliques, and religious influences. And while I acknowledge my own mistakes, my heart has always longed for unity AND purity. I quickly learned, however, that unity isn't possible with everyone who claims to want the same or share your beliefs. "You shall know them by their fruits," the Bible warns.
These words were so beautifully woven together. We are Yah's Tapestry and He is at work within us when we allow Him. As you know I can relate to everything you shared and had it not been for me "knowing" and "experiencing" the love of Yah the pain of trauma and disloyalty could have overtaken me. Yet Greater is He that is in me - than He that is in the world. It is Yah's promises that are stored up for me that propels me to stay on His Righteous Path 🙏🏽💕
