Bless the Lord, Oh My Soul

By Jerjuanna Cecille

I find myself many times tired and just over it! Living in a world where beauty, class, character and so many other things can and will be determined by the color of your skin. Then your femininity is determined by what you wear,how you walk, your voice tone and not the organs you were born with. I begin to wonder what’s unique about it, why was I born with melanin? You tell me that it is special but all I see is that it’s caused a target to be placed on my back.Why was I born a woman? You tell me my emotions and talents are needed but then I am tagged as being “the angry black woman.” My skin isn’t bulletproof, there is no one here to protect me! You keep saying encourage yourself, while your actions and silence leads me to a slow, painful death sentence. And I just want to give up because being black and a woman ain’t all it’s cracked up to be.

It has been challenging, convicting, humbling and so GOOD, to spend time in Psalms 103! Reminding me to

Bless the Lord Oh My Soul

that the creator of the universe made me on purpose! That in me you have created a uniquely woven woman to glorify and worship your name Jesus!

Bless the Lord Oh My Soul

That you fight my battles! I am surrounded and protected by you! Jesus! You are my strength, my deliverer, my hope, redeemer. The one who set me free!

Bless the Lord Oh My Soul!

That your words are truth! That you are a comforter! The ultimate encourager! On days where I feel left out, unheard , not chosen, forgotten, tired and used; Jesus you point me to that cross! The cross where I first saw the light and the burdens of my heart rolled away. It was there by faith I received my sight and now I am happy all of my days.

Bless the Lord Oh My Soul, my sisters as we end this study can you beckon your heart to Bless the Lord Oh My Soul!!
