There are times in our lives when we simply have to tell the best truth we know. And while others may not agree with us, it’s our truth as we see it and the only one we know up until now. In this film clip below, this little black girl was not only facing a teacher who was obviously from a different culture, including race and class, the teacher simply did not want to face her own truth. This was more a lesson for the teacher than it was for this girl. How many times have you felt unseen or unheard because of other people’s ideas of who you are? As fatherless women who struggle with our identity, because we get our identity from our paternal connections, we must begin to retrace our lives beyond our mother’s wounds. It’s in this retracing we learn who we are NOT by our circumstances, but by our connection to God our Creator. Watch this film clip and listen closely to what this young girl shares about her life, then watch what her class mate does next. We could all benefit from someone who is willing to stand with us as we discover our power and our truth. What was the biggest lesson you learned from this clip and does it remind you of a time in your life when you too felt invisible? Please share in the comments below.
