"The lyrics in Wande’s new single, “They Didn’t Know II,” celebrate young, bold, and unashamed Christians and talks through personal challenges she experienced early in her faith. “Many people don’t know how powerful making a choice to follow God is,” shares Wande. “Choosing Christianity at a young age changed my life and music for the better. I’ve discovered that when God fights for you, you move different! When you’re on your faith journey, especially when you’re young, it’s hard for people who aren’t on it with you to understand the transformation you’re experiencing. In the lyrics for her newest single, “They Didn’t Know II,” she rhymes, “They be thinking I’m crazy, but look what He did. I gave Him my life He changed how I live. So yeah, I’m unashamed Romans 1:16…Saved me at a young age started from the teens, now my real-life way better than my dreams.” Still, one day, you’ll be able to say like Wande, “This is who I am,’ I am not going to apologize about being unashamed to follow Jesus."
 
Despite the global COVID-19 pandemic, she’s had a successful entry into the industry.
Her single "Blessed Up" was selected by Michelle Obama for Spotify playlist. “Woo” was featured in the viral marketing campaign for Apple’s iPhone 12 mini which garnered over 4.5 billion views on TikTok.

Her afro-beat influenced, “Come My Way,” (ft. Teni, Toy√©) from Reach Records' Presents 116 Summer '20 Playlist was featured in ULTA’s SoundCloud campaign. Cultivating a relationship with the beauty retailer is important for Wande who is exploring launching her own beauty and fashion line. Additionally, her music streamed in the WNBA’s 2020 Draft promotion, Lena Waithe’s BET Production “Twenties,” and her song “Be the Light” ft Evan & Eris was also ESPN’s Music of the Month feature. 

Her single, "Don't Worry Bout It" ft Atlanta based up and coming rapper, Porsha Love, was nominated for "Best Spiritual Record" at the A2IM Libera Awards. Wande is a 2X Libera Award Nominee. The music video for the single went viral on Facebook with over 1.5 million views in 45 days and the single is already at over 2.2 million streams.

You can stream “They Didn't Know II” now everywhere here.

Flawed and Free Podcast: 'Manna vs Meat' Review

The Flawed and Free Christian Community and Deliverance Ministry has led me to many divine insights over the past few weeks. The Mentorship Academy along with the resources on their website like the blog, YouTube Channel, and other content have been real eye openers . . . in the Spirit.


Episode 13 of the podcast 'Manna vs Meat' gets into the deep discussion of GOD's perfect will vs His permissive will. As I began to listen to the podcast I was wondering "was there actually even a such thing as GOD's permissive will?"


LaTyna Jalieba, FFM Academy Instructor and Podcast host breaks it down perfectly. The answer was definitely clear by the end of the podcast. It was a great listen. There were points where I laughed. I love LaTyna's personality. Her exploration through The word in this episode and others is enjoyable. It's fun to listen to, but at the same time insightful.

A few key takeaways and gems I got from the podcast episode are below:

  • "GOD is not looking for us to be perfect. He wants us to seek Him in His perfection."
  • The perfect will of GOD is full of order.
  • "GODs perfect will comes with rest."
  • "you shouldn't make decisions for yourself then take it back to GOD for GOD to bless, that's out of order."
  • "If you fail to learn contentment you will contaminate your future"
So many good takeaways and these are just a very small few. You can check out the episode Manna vs. Meat below and all the latest episodes of Flawed & Free podcast at theflawedandfree.com

Would love to know, what were a few of your favorite takeaways from this episode?

Righteousness, Faith, Love, and Peace Be With You

The Kingdom has it's own agenda and it's own design. This world may celebrate striving for "the pursuit of happiness", even some believers may get caught up in the prosperity gospel, but the Kingdom isn't about food, drink, house, clothes, cars, money or bling, It's about surrendering our hearts to the King of kings. The amazing thing is that true peace is born in surrender.

In the Kingdom there is joy in the Holy Spirit and peace that surpasses understanding. The peace that surpasses understanding brings joy with it and far exceeds happiness, because happiness is temporary, joy is everlasting.


Seeing GOD is the blessing. Seeking the Kingdom first causes us to live from a place of fullness, not emptiness. Seeking The Creator's will first and foremost makes us complete.


When we ask in Christ, we receive. GOD's will be done, on earth as it is in heaven, because when we see it, we can walk in agreement with it. May you go before The Lord in Spirit and in truth, and always call on Him from a pure heart.

Love Is The Aim

Sincere faith. A good conscience. A pure heart. This is how we see GOD in Spirit and in truth.

A pure heart and a clear conscience is everything, because remember if don't have love, you're just out here making noise. You can be special, anointed from the Heavens, but without love you're nothing.


GOD's love is better than life. GOD's love imputes love in us. We don't know love unless we know GOD.


May your conscience be clear, your heart pure and your faith sincere.

GOD Gives Wisdom To The Heart


Be wise!

Who gives wisdom to the heart and understanding to the mind? The living GOD who instructed Abraham, raised Jesus from the dead, and invited Job to answer His questions does.


When we seek GOD's face, we find wisdom for our hearts and understanding for our lives. The Lord open's His mouth with wisdom. If we're intentionally paying attention we can't miss it.


You will receive wisdom. It's important to know where it comes from and continue to seek it. May your wisdom and understanding forever be full in Christ.

Extra Revelation:


We worship and pray to GOD in Spirit and in truth, Don't come to GOD with pretense. Don't try to come as someone else, you don't have to be prim and proper. Pour out your heart to GOD. Your raw heart is what He can use. Coming to GOD with a pure, unfiltered heart, allows us to see that He is a pure and truthful GOD.

Motivation Music: Lecrae and 1K Phew "MOVE" [Video]

 

Ayye! It's a bop!

You can do a jig or whatever you want to do, but the single "Move" by Lecrae and 1K Phew will definitely have you "moving it".

The single is from their latest collaborative album No Church In A While.

Besides the production on the song with beats that will get you moving, both Lecrae and 1K Phew spit a few catchy bars on the track. 

"Say a prayer on the floor like it's War Room," 1K Phew spat referring to the popular 2015 Film.

In addition to sly verses like "I got the light on me can't lose it" and "light of the world 'til The King is back." The duo came in hot with the rhetoric.

Both rappers shared an unashamed flow for the song that works brilliantly. Check out the official video below to get you moving.

watch the official video below:


"Move," is said to be a fan favorite from the album. The video directed by Jerrell Green & Caleb Seales was filmed in Atlanta, GA.

It finds 1K Phew and Lecrae recreating the drill sergeant scene inspired by the 1995 film, Major Payne, starring Damon Wayans and Karyn Parsons. 1K Phew whipping the Unashamed Army into shape and Lecrae puts them through the drills! Watch the "MOVE" video below. No Church In A While is available for streaming now! To stream now, click here."

The Riches Is In The Glory

 "But my God shall supply all your needs according to

His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." 

- Philippians 4:19

It's so easy to understand in Philippians 4:19 and hopefully experientially from our life experiences that GOD is the supplier of all of our needs. Different scriptures agree that we have access to the wealth of the Kingdom through Christ Jesus. 
While this is a blessing, I have a profound thought that I'd like to submit: "The Access IS the wealth".

We want wealth, we want riches, we want glory, but Access to Jesus is all that. It's all the things we could ever want and more. 

But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. - Matthew 6:33
The reason why all these things (i.e. whatever you need) will be added unto you when you seek the Kingdom first is because they are in the Kingdom. 
So the fact that we have access, that all of this glory is accessible to us, makes me convinced that the very access itself IS the wealth.

The riches is IN the glory. We can look left and right, all around, search high and low trying to get something or achieve something but until we understand that everything that we need is in Christ. (The anointed one and His anointing) then we will forever be searching amiss and living in vain. 

 The Clark Sisters asked famously "Is my living in vain" and answered: "No of course not, it's not all in vain, cause up the road is eternal gain."

Our eternal gain is now. We live in it, we walk in it and walk toward it, because we understand we have access to it. It's eternal. It's never ending. 
We serve an unlimited GOD. This is the confidence that we have.
We have confidence "in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, he hears us:

And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we desired of Him." - 1 John 5:14-15 
 If you're a believer and you have this confidence, I rejoice with you and pray that we keep it. If you're not yet, I pray that you know there's no greater confidence to have! 
The access IS the wealth. May we continue to walk in access as we live this life and let nothing stop us.

Blessings!
