This Blessing is Global!

“To hate a nationality,
to hate a location because of its people,
to hate someone
is:
– self-destructive (the acid of hatred is destroying you from the inside out),
– self-cursing (the hatred you’re verbalizing, expressing, acting out, demonstrating and
writing are magnetizing the negativity of the same and worse to happen to you, immediately or later),
– a demonstration of a lack of a measure of intelligence about the Human Family,
and
– a demonstration of a lack of knowledge about The Blessing of Genesis 12:3

~ Michelle ‘Chaella’ Boddie

Resentment is Corrosive

Don’t They See the Connection?

“Have you ever noticed the people who gossip the most, have the least?

because all YOUR energy is in MINE.”
~ T. D. Jakes, Sr.,
