Today, many young black women have forgotten the God of their forefathers and foremothers, and are refusing to take the things of God seriously. By observing the actions of many, one can conclude that they are not thinking of God. Frankly, they are putting God in a box and locking Him out of their lives. Because of this, so many young black women are living depressed and defeated lives.

One of the reasons why many young black women do not take God, the Bible and the Church seriously is because they have never taken the time to really get to know God for themselves. They know about God. They have heard about God, and what He can do, but they have never taken the time to develop a one-on-one personal relationship with Him. They are still relying on the relationship their grandmothers and grandfathers had with God, thinking that somehow it will fall on them by osmosis or something. But it does not work that way.

You are going to have to get to know God for yourself because the day is coming when you, me, and everyone born on this earth, will stand before the Holy and Just God, to give an account for the life we lived while on this earth. You can read it for yourself in Romans 14:11-12: “For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. So then everyone of us shall give account of himself to God.”
