I am writing and sending this information to all the Deeper Life girls out there.
I pledged to myself that one day I will share my experience with everybody out there, just to encourage a soul and the reason why you must be proud of who you are.
Growing up I personally witnessed alot of mixed reaction from people I referred to as my friends and even family members about how they see the deeper Life children, especially the female child.
I suffered and went through so much of embarrassment from friends, relatives and even my family members.
I attended a boarding school While growing up, had my Jss1 to Sse education in a mixed school where we have both boys and girls in a classroom. Alots of friends are once who turn up for preps and night readings Wearing make-ups, tight jeans skirt, trousers and skimmy clothes. And they will be like “Mother Mary” or “Mama Jesus” won’t you wear some nice clothes and make your face up, you look so old in that dress.
The boys on the hand, are not all that troublesome or they concerned about my dressing, all they want was friendship, of which I tag as sin.
They always questioned my believe by saying all your friends do it, don’t they go to church to, it was an experience I had to bear while growing up, not because it was easy for me or because my pastor told me so, but because but it was the right thing to do, believe me until today I never regret doing so.
Fast forward to my University days, I made new friends some having the same believes with me while other’s weren’t stable as they still entangle themselves in sin. I was with the University fellowship, precisely a choir member. Beauty was the talk of the day back then in my University days, what you wear, how you look, who your boyfriend’s his, how many numbers call you everyday was the temptation I Would have conquer.
At times during discussion with friends, you hear words like hey “you’re Pretty for a deeper life girl”.
I once face an interrogation from a boy, he asked me these questions so fast “when are you going to make your hair?” “why isn’t your hair relaxed?” “Won’t you apply make up for dinner?”, I laughed, and told him to calm down, that I am a Christian, a devoted one for that matter, my Pastor told me never to do such things, he was surprised and asked which church am I going to, I told him I attend Deeper Life Bible Church, I was expecting him to throw some insulting to words like others have always done to me and my church. I was surprised when he said the words “You’re a good girl, stay firm to your faith”.
He told me, how he respect good girls, and how wished his sister’s would be like me, that was why he asked me those questions so fast, because he never believe good girls still exist.
I got this inner urge, I felt the a calm relieve, but I kept asking myself one question, why do people think they aren’t good girls anymore?
Believe it or not, deeper Life girls are far more beautiful, brilliant and smart when compare with all those slay Queens out there, I will categorically say we are proud of what we are, what we wear and how we look. What people say or think doesn’t count, our eyes is far beyond the sky as we wait for the master return’s.
So when you see a deeper Life girl give her a nice compliment rather than questioning her faith or church, it would be nice for a start.
