Hi! I'm Akira.
Is that a weird way to start this? Maybe, but as you'll soon see, I'm a little quirky, so... Yea!
So I do a few things.
I work (of course 🙌🏾😒)
I dance at my church
I model from time to time
And for almost a year, I've done a show on Trifyre's Periscope called Transparent Tuesdays, which I talk about different topics from a Christian perspective.
As much as I love everything that I'm doing when it comes to ministry and my life in general, it's time for me to stop trying to shake the feeling God keeps giving me and actually listen for once, so here we are.
I've wanted to start a blog for a while now, but I never felt like I had enough to say, which is funny because I always have something to say lol! After some soul searching though, I've realized that the reason I didn't want to start a blog was because when you put words to paper (or on the net) it makes it real.
Anyone who knows me knows that transparency and truth telling in love is what I'm all about. I believe that you can't operate fully in anything God wants you to unless you're being transparent, telling the truth, and delivering it in love.
I've been really good at the truth telling part for a while now lol. I have no problem telling you all about yourself, but as of late, I've been working really hard to make sure there love component is there. I still struggle sometimes, but I know that this is something that I have to work at because BC, (Before I acknowledged Christ consistently in my life) I would try to hurt you if I felt like you came at me the wrong way and I used my words to do it.
But look at God and how He's delivered me!!! Instead on going off 100% of the time, it only happens maybe 20%! Hey, that's progress, ok?!
But to try and keep this as short and sweet as possible, my goal with this blog is just to encourage someone that maybe feels like giving up. Sometimes it's hard being all the things that I am and still keeping my sanity, but the older I get, the more I learn that to trust God is really to stop living so black and white and embracing the gray because gray is where my faith and trust muscles have to opportunity to flex. Gray is me doing this blog.
So I encourage you to embrace the gray. You never know what God has waiting for you there😊
