Special Edition | Prayer Trek | Day 9: SELF-CONTROL
GirlTrek's Black History Bootcamp Podcast
by Morgan Dixon + Vanessa Garrison
4M ago
REFLECTION: Think about control. We control the smells in our homes with incense and plugins. We control bacteria with Lysol. We try to control viruses with vitamin C. We control our babies. We'll burp, we'll reprimand with pinches. When you're at church you get pinched or you get the side-eye from the choir stand. We are good at controlling because we know the past and we’re responsibly fearful of the future. When we thought about self-control and knowing that control has been our superpower, from binding our bellies up to our hair to everything we know, controlling our femininity so that peo ..read more

Special Edition | Prayer Trek | Day 8: FAITHFULNESS
GirlTrek's Black History Bootcamp Podcast
by Morgan Dixon + Vanessa Garrison

You have to know that the calling placed on your life will mean you will have to navigate many rocky terrains, many dark places, facing many attacks, because we wrestle not against flesh and blood. The enemy only targets those who are doing good works. When you face these trials and tribulations, you will feel the urge to quit, to give in, or to act out of your character. That's when faith comes in. Faith is the idea of going beyond your fears and acting on what God has instilled in you. It’s about taking the first two steps and God taking on the rest. It’s about continuing to move forward, be ..read more

Special Edition | Prayer Trek | Day 7: GOODNESS
GirlTrek's Black History Bootcamp Podcast
by Morgan Dixon + Vanessa Garrison
4M ago
REFLECTION: You know the saying. God is good all the time, and all the time God is good. But what does it mean for us to be good? Is it simply obeying the rules or being nice, or is there something else? We think it means actively choosing the kindest, most loving response in any situation, and doing it without expectation of recognition or praise. We are good, because God is good to us, and God offers goodness through grace and mercy. Think back on the times where it could have been, should have been you, but you were spared.  Right now, in our living and breathing selves, we believe in ..read more

Special Edition | Prayer Trek | Day 5: KINDNESS
GirlTrek's Black History Bootcamp Podcast
by Morgan Dixon + Vanessa Garrison
4M ago
REFLECTION: Kindness begins with having self-compassion. Because you can't extend what you don't give to yourself. Being compassionate to yourself and understanding, I'm not perfect and I have to be able to forgive myself for things so that I can then extend that to other people. This is important, especially as women and Black women, for sure, because we give, give, give, but who gives to us?    Who gives the superhero the voice, and when does the superhero get a chance to recharge?   There's a connection between not being kind when we feel tired and depleted, and being very ki ..read more

Special Edition | Prayer Trek | Day 4: LONG-SUFFERING
GirlTrek's Black History Bootcamp Podcast
by Morgan Dixon + Vanessa Garrison
4M ago
REFLECTION: Today's topic is about long-suffering and when we tell you that Black women know long-suffering, we ain’t lied. We have turned a kind of slow burn of pain into muscle, into magic. Every Black woman we know has made long-suffering and patience an art. The ability to practice patience in the face of hate is a virtue of God. It’s one of the Fruits of the Spirit. It's hard and it's why Black women are ready to lead. Patience or forbearance or long-suffering is not passive. It is staying the course of your most amazing life every single day, and that requires muscle. It requires discipl ..read more

Special Edition | Prayer Trek | Day 3: PEACE
GirlTrek's Black History Bootcamp Podcast
by Morgan Dixon + Vanessa Garrison
4M ago
REFLECTION: Peace is about wholeness. It is about completeness. It is a state of being. Sometimes we think it's affected by what's external and what's happening all around us. The Hebrew word for peace is Shalom. Sometimes it can be a state of affairs, sometimes it means being concerned about the well-being of your fellow human, your neighbor. Peace or shalom signifies value. As you look at everything that's happening in our country, it's easy to be distracted and it's easy to lose heart and it's easy to lose joy and love and peace and not focus on the Fruit of the Spirit. It's easy to cry out ..read more

Special Edition | Prayer Trek | Day 2: JOY
GirlTrek's Black History Bootcamp Podcast
by Morgan Dixon + Vanessa Garrison
4M ago
REFLECTION: Joy is like a tickle on the inside. It's not on the outside. Joy doesn't have to be social, because lasting joy is the kind that comes from within. Sometimes you just have to fight for that joy, but know that it is always there. There are seasons when you mourn and when you grieve, but that season does not last forever. As you reflect on yesterday’s word of love, remember God loves you.    When Scripture says weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning, sometimes those nights seem like forever. But you have to hold on. Hold on to your faith and know that ..read more

Special Edition | Prayer Trek | Day 1: LOVE
GirlTrek's Black History Bootcamp Podcast
by Morgan Dixon + Vanessa Garrison
4M ago
REFLECTION: When we think of love, and especially love as it relates to the Fruit of the Spirit in the Bible, we always think that we ourselves are taught how to love others. We're taught how to be nice to other people. We are taught how to be compassionate, to be compassionate friends, to be dedicated partners, to be great sisters and mothers. We're taught to respect other people, to be great stewards of our land and our world, but nowhere are we taught on a daily basis the practical ways in which we can love ourselves. That must be the foundation for all the love that we give to other people ..read more
