Stop It! Back Up! Don't You Know I Am A Child Of God!

This post is inspired by words I 'stole' from Yvonne@Empowered Moments.  I have had many mantras over time and the above is my newest and hottest! 

I recommend that whenever anything, anyone, any situation tries to 'try' you, knock you down and mess with your spiritual mojo, you stare that thing, person, situation right in the eye and say:

Hey! Hey! Stop it! Back Up! Don't  you know I am a child of God? You shall not be messing with me today!

It might be just me, but just saying the words out loud somehow infuses me with inner strength and peace plus it makes me feel so cool. Lol!  The words above are taken from a quote by my Auntie Maya Angelou (*blinking innocently* What? Yes now, there is no law against claiming a person is there?) Here let me share the quote with you (once again 'stolen' from Yvonne's blog. Thanks Sis!): 


"There's a place in you that you must keep inviolate. You must keep it pristine. Clean. So that nobody has a right to curse you or treat you badly. Nobody. No mother, father, no wife, no husband, no - nobody. You have to have a place where you say: Stop it. Back up. Don't you know I'm a child of God." ~ Dr. Maya Angelou

Absolutely love this woman! Now read her words again, listen to There is a King in You by Donald Lawrence (Thanks Mufasa for mentioning it cos I have been playing it over and over and it just revs a person up!) and tell me how you can possibly remain 'defeated'? I want you to think of that person or situation that is messing with you and say to it, loud and clear:

Stop it! Back up! Don't you know I am a child of God? You shall not be messing with moi today because there is a King living in me!

And then be on your merry, victorious way whistling " I don port o**!" as you go! 

Peace out! *laughing*



**  I cannot help it, this jingly song just makes me happy you cannot help but want to dance when you sing it.  Lol!  Perfect combination of actions - declaring, singing and dancing in faith- to just frustrate the devil and his cohorts!

  5. Hi Sis Bola:
    Love that you shared the message. Sometimes it's not so much about going down on our knees to pray - we just gotta holla the words more often with some swag too - "Stop it! Back up! Don't you know I'm a child of God!"
    Sooner rather than later, the Devil and all his cohorts will walk the opposite side of the road whenever they see us coming! Love it! LOL!

    1. Exactly! Knowing who we are is what gingers our swaga! It has nothing to do with us but all to do with who we carry on the inside. Many times, the devil exploits our doubts. He tries to see if you truly believe. So we gotta show him that we do any way we can!!!!!Thanks for inspiring this piece Sis!

  6. I LOVE THAT SONG OH-"THERE IS A KING IN ME"
    AND I CONCUR WITH SIS YVONNE THAT "NOT EVERY SITUATION REQUIRES KNEELING TO PRAY, WE GAT TO HOLLA- "STOP IT BACK UP, DONT YOU KNOW IM A CHILD OF GOD?!"

    MY THREE YEAR OLD DAUGHTER STARTED EXHIBITING AN UNNECESSARY FEAR FOR DOGS AND I TAUGHT HER HOW TO AUTHORITATIVELY TELL THE DOG "DOG, DO AWAY NOW".....WE ALSO SHOULD LEARN HOW TO AUTHORITATIVELY TELL OUR MOUNTAINS TO MOVE, DEBIL TO GET THEE BEHIND US...E.T.C.

    YOUR BROOK OF KNOWLEDGE WILL NOT RUN DRY

    1. That's just wonderful. I love that you are teaching your daughter this right from the get go. Oh, if we had all grown up to understand the authority we have as children of God! Please keep doing that Omoba!

      Amen! Amen! Let us all keep seeking God's wisdom and applying it to our lives.
