Sisterhood 

February 22, 2018

You are loved. You are valued. You are believed in. 

Sisterhood is a movement of everyday girls who are passionate about bringing Heaven to Earth. Our desire is to spark a value revolution around the Earth. 

In a world where we cannot even turn on the TV without hurtful words and actions from women on display, it is time for a fresh voice and a new anthem to arise. Our society is groaning to see its daughters rise up in great strength to shout the fame of Jesus and follow His example for loving one another with compassion and grace. WE ARE SISTERHOOD is not just a catch phrase. We are committed to lean into, strengthen and uplift girls of all ages both locally and to the ends of the earth. We will not stop fighting this uphill battle and continue to declare that every single woman is loved, valued and beautiful.

XO, Oneka and the Sisterhood Team

Daughter of Strength

When I was in the navy, I had to take a course to qualify at a higher level on my ability to use a gun. The basic gist of this course was to have a gun that shot paint tipped bullets that would break the skin and leave MASSIVE bruises, and go through a mock building clearing rooms of any “threats.” This was supposed to teach us how to do close quarters combat. The catch was that the people who were acting as “threats” were no ordinary people; they were all ex-special forces. NONE of us stood a chance against those guys! So as we would be lined up, getting ready to round a corner in this mock building, these “threats” would be waiting for us at the end of the hallway and would pick us off one at a time as we stepped around the corner. We learned really quickly that we stood a better chance of surviving the course if we used the person in front of us as a shield. It wasn’t the bravest method, but it was effective.

In the book of Ephesians 6, we are told about the armor that we need to put on daily to protect ourselves from being overtaken and defeated by the world. Everyday we open our eyes, we face a battle. We are fighting for our peace, our joy, our freedom, our purpose, and our focus. When you go into battle, you are very intentional about the weapons you carry with you and the protection you wear. Faith is referred to as a shield. I think this is such beautiful imagery because a shield has a unique role in battle. Its purpose is to protect a person from being injured or killed, and it’s used as a form of defense against an enemy. The shield is created to be strong and impenetrable, and is something to hide behind when under attack.

Psalm 18:2 also refers to God as a shield and says, “TheLord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.” Our faith needs to be in God. He needs to be our shelter when we are under attack, and the rock that is immovable. He needs to be the shield that goes before us in every battle we fight. He is the one who overcomes the enemy who comes against us.

We need to be intentional about carrying our shield of faith with us and this needs to be a piece of protection that is a non-negotiable in our lives. When you are in battle, your shield doesn’t stay at home or even down by your side because the shield protects you from the things being thrown at you, without it, we leave ourselves open to attack. But when God goes before us, every plan of the enemy is cancelled, every road lock the enemy puts before us is torn down, and every lie the enemy throws at us is extinguished by the truth of God’s Word. We need to find out what it says about Him so,when we are in seasons of trial, we aren’t moved but instead are able to use our faith in God as a shelter from the storm.

    Every day we show kindness to different people in different ways. God has recently taken me on a journey during which He began to show and teach me deeper things about kindness, and I would like to share part of this journey with you.“Take heed that you do not do your charitable deeds before men, to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward from your Father in Heaven.”MATTHEW 6:1As we move closer to the light (“God is light, in Him there is no darkness at all.” 1 John...  Read More...
