Kwanzaa | Imani



To believe with all our heart in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders, and the righteousness and victory of our struggle

Lord knows my faith has been tested a many of times these last two years!! But I'm glad it was. Because without my faith I would've been utter lost and hopeless. 

I won't say that I'm full blown church going girl seeking for forgiveness and immortality. No. I know I'm a screw up and the gods above know that as well. I just pray and be a spiritual as humanly possible and hold on to my faith. When I was down and out and struggling to the point I had to go without food. I had faith one day it would work out. But that time taught me that if the struggle came around again I could stand tall and handle it. Even if it seemed that things wouldn't work out I was damned and determined to keep the faith. I knew my faith would see me through. Me holding on to my faith have my weary heart the strength I was looking for. 

What's even better than faith is when you have people around you that you love and care about that has the faith too. Not so much religious, but they struggle and have faith it'll work out in the end. Those are the people that will be your disciples in life. They are your support system. And that's a rare find let me tell you! 

Even now in the mess I'm in. I have faith that things will work out for the better. It may take time and I'll try to be as patient as I can be. But I know I'll be anxiously excited to see what the future holds and brings. I hope my faith continues to grow stronger as I continue my journey.
