June Got Me Into Formation

There are no words for what these past few weeks have been, except — a rollercoaster. It’s been a social upheaval rollercoaster filled with wins and losses. An emotional rollercoaster as I grieved the senseless and unjust deaths of Black women and men, meanwhile, I celebrated the beauty of my heritage—being African, Nigerian, Afro-American. A spiritual rollercoaster as I wrestled with God wondering if He was really there and if He cared that the world was filled with specific hatred and loathing toward OUR skin that HE created. I cried, laughed, danced, protested, wrote, argued, corrected, prayed, praised, and loved—myself, others, and God—despite the feral inclination to hate.

It’s by God’s grace that I able to maintain my sanity.

Here’s how God got me through:

This month was tough but I really see how God is using the current circumstances to get my faith into formation.

What inspired you in June?
