Black Panther

Black Panther

I loved Wakanda. For me, the central message was the power and authority that mama’s have.

“Tell him who you are!” ♥️

These are the words of Ramonda, Queen mother of Wakanda to her son Tchalla, during a battle to defend his throne.

In moments of fear, uncertainty and frustration, as a mother what do you tell your children? Is your voice that of assurance and definition?.

Moments of fear, frustration are ‘perfect’ moments to look your child square in the eye and remind them of who they are! The world may see so many things in our children but no one knows them like mama does. The world can tell our children so many things too. However, we can speak into the greatness that is right inside of them and defend their destiny.

I believe as mothers especially mothers of faith, we are our own children’s prophets. What are you speaking into your children’s lives? My favourite affirmations are: ‘all my children shall be taught of the Lord and great shall be their peace’, ‘You are for signs and wonders’.

Time and again I remind my children of their strengths and address their frustrations and anxieties with a calming voice of prayer, hug, note or even a letter. I like to pray for them in my quiet devotional time. I also enjoy praying with them, lifting them up before the father of all flesh. It’s powerful and they appreciate it.

 

One other thing am finding helpful with parenting teens season are notes or even letters. I like to express myself on paper, letting my children know that I notice the worries on their faces some days, the pressure and stress of friendships as well as exams. I journal some prayers too.

 

The greatest armour I am using more these days is intentional hug. Yes, hug. I guess it’s difficult for anyone to say no to a hug. While I am hugging either my 17year son or 13year old daughter, depending on the mood and context, I speak quietly or loudly into their spirit. I believe we all want to reminded of who we are. We all want to be encouraged time again. The power of touch, disarming and healing.

I remind them of their destiny and call of God upon their lives. You are a mighty man of valour, a Gedion of your generation. You are a mighty woman of God, called to your generation. A women of impact and authority, your light will never dim. I like to call forth those destinies in prayer.

What are your thoughts, would love to her from you?

  1. This is awesome Fadzai!
    There are so many wonderful messages in this film and I’m struggling to decide which one to put to paper too.
    This particular message is deep and you’ve encouraged me to keep on hugging and start writing him little letters too! You hit the nail on the head.

  2. Very good analogy. In our sabbath school lesson for this quarter we are looking at the life of a Christian Steward. In one lesson we discussed the stewardship that God has placed over parents to nurture the children we have been blessed with. I realise motherhood is a gift that not all women for one reason or the other do not receive. I question myself why God chose to give me the gift of children. Maybe He saw me as a brilliant steward. I do not take the job lightly. I pray for my children, I teach them about the love of God. I encourage them to have a relationship with Jesus and get into the habit of praying for themselves and believing the power of prayer. All 3 of them have different needs and I try my best to support and guide each need. Above all I demonstrate “seeking first the kingdom of God and everything else gets added”
