#BelleInTheCity A Message to My people, Sent Directly from GOD

What are we going to do?

This has been the underlying question in the midst of all of the disheartening news, turmoil, racial tension, and police brutality gone viral– and beyond. The harsh realities that continue to surface are not just impacting the black community— but any community that believes in social justice and human rights. But, this IS about race. It is about the displacement of African people centuries ago. Here we are, 400+ years later trying to fight for our freedom and prove that our lives matter.

About the Dream I Had Last Night….

Let me share a story with you all, this actually happened just last night. Use this as a reminder that our fight is not in vain and we are covered–no matter what:

#AltonSterling was breaking news to us all yesterday. As much as I tried to not watch the videos, or work my anger and emotion up about Alton–my subconscious did anyway. I did not express the anger but I felt it subconsciously. I didn’t post on Social Media much yesterday, I didn’t read the articles– I didn’t even watch the video. I know how controlling the media can be, and I didn’t feel like being controlled yesterday.

These stories of social injustice against people of color remind me too much of when I had my running with the Tuscaloosa Police while attending the University of Alabama. I felt so helpless and unprotected by the cops. I didn’t want to revisit that place.

So last night, I went to sleep as usual. With a sober mind, and an open heart. But last night, my dream was evil, a bit of a nightmare. I almost NEVER have these types of dreams so it really shook me. All of the evil spirits and negative emotions I read throughout the day from my peers on social media, crept into my subconscious spirit.  

I was sound asleep and in my dream, there were 4 people walking towards me and they were turning into demons…. I could feel the fear– during my dream. I was so terrified! But then something supernatural happened…

I heard the Holy Spirit whisper to me:

“He that is in you is greater than He that is in the world…”

“He that is in you is greater than He that is in the world…”

“He that is in you is greater than He that is in the world…”

“He that is in you is greater than He that is in the world…”

It kept repeating and woke me up out of my sleep.

When I woke up, it was 3:33AM. I stayed up for an hour and I started listening to gospel music and worshipping Him. A few months ago, I watched a video from spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle that said:

“If the spirit wakes you in the middle of the night, don’t go back to sleep. The Spirit has something to tell you.”

After about an hour, I went  back to sleep, and there was no more fear. There was also a renewed confidence in the Power of the Holy Spirit– HE THAT IS IN ME IS GREATER THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD!!! 

Here’s the scripture that was whispered to me:

1 John 4:4 You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.

To my people who are currently feeling defeated, and helpless pay attention to the content of this particular scripture.. “AND HAVE OVERCOME THEM!”


It is my prayer that this testimony empowers you on this day. We serve a living God and He has not forgotten about us!!

In love and empowerment,
