                                        How to be less White                            White Fragility Book Review  I used to love reading books, but in the last several years I have not read that much. So my goal for 2021 is to read one book a month. For the month of March the book I chose was White Fragility by Robin Diangelo that I bought at my local Target.     The reason I chose this was because It was on the New York's best sellers list and I wanted to see what people were consuming lately with the high race tensions in America. This book is geared towards White liberals. I am not a woke liberal in fact quite the opposite. So me going into reading this,  I am coming in with a critical mindset from the beginning.        I am coming with the perspective of a Conservative Christian.  The book had some good insights. Very few, but I am a learner and can learn from almost anything or any situation. I agree that there is Systemic Racism. I agree that it is embedded into society.

The LORD will hold you in his hand for all to see— a splendid crown in the hand of God. Isaiah 62:3

     The Lord is very pleased with how he made you. He takes a step back and looks at his creation. Wow, it is a masterpiece. Yes, you. God is not ashamed of you but proud of you. You are a walking spendor of the Lord. A God-fearing woman is worth more than rubies. Yes, more than diamonds. 

      


     This verse almost makes me think of a man that is proud of his beautiful girlfriend and wants to show her off. Let us be a good representation of our King. Let our beauty shine with fruits of the holy spirit. Self-Control, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Goodness, and Love. I struggle with Joy and I want to work on that so that my crown will be able to shine at its fullest.

       Take one of the fruits of the holy spirit that you are struggling with and do a quick bible study on it. These fruits are what makes are crowns struggle and what sets us apart from the world. 

Let your light shine before men, that. they may see your good works, and. glorify your Father which is in heaven. Mathew 5 15-16

   Let us shine our light before men like a beautiful shining crown. Let us shine with all of the gifts from the holy spirit that people will notice that illumination. Remember that Love triumphs over all other acts. Let us not be tied down in a spirit of religion and works that are like dirty rags. What changes hearts is Love.

1 Corinthians 13 New International Version (NIV)

 If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

How all together lovely you are shining in your beauty. A woman that Fears the Lord. So wonderful that you are like a splendid crown in the very hand of God. Lift up your head and do not be sad. Leave your insecurities all behind. You are altogether beautiful. You are Loved, my daughter. Shine your beauty to the World.
