Berry, the owner of I’MarE Boutique, activated her faith and fashion sense to make sure her dream would not die during what has been an uncertain time for many.
The amazing thing about being in a relationship with God is that no pain, even the pain that you bring upon yourself, even the pain that He told you to let go of, is ever wasted. God always makes up for the lost time and the mistakes that you make. The problem is that sometimes we as God's children allow anger to linger and become cancerous, causing us to become the very people we despise.
On Mother's Day, Cora Jakes-Coleman, the daughter of pastor and author T.D. Jakes, gave an unforgettable message as she preached about God's unfailing hand through the standpoint and story of Sarah and Abraham. Some questions that Jakes-Coleman brought to mind are what are your "Hagars," or Plan B's that you choose because you are afraid that God won't fulfill His promises? What causes us to not want to stand in faith when God's word always withstands the tests of time? Cora reminds us that we should never be so thirsty for position that we forget the very power that God places on the inside of us.
