Sarah Jakes Roberts Reveals She Promised God To Live Publicly
Sarah Jakes Roberts Reveals She Promised God To Live Publicly: Renowned pastor and bestselling author, Sarah Jakes Roberts, daughter of Bishop T.D. Jakes, in a heartfelt revelation, she shared with her followers on Instagram a solemn promise she made to God – to live her life publicly and authentically.
Pastor Sarah, known for her empowering sermons and motivational teachings, took to Instagram to disclose a deeply personal commitment she has made in her spiritual journey. She spoke passionately about why she has decided not to be a private person, revealing her promise to God to live a public life that reflects her authentic self.
“When people began connecting with my story and messages, I promised God, and myself, that I’d live publicly authentic and vulnerable.”
However, she stated that it has not been an easy journey as it became very difficult at some point to continue.
” The more people, the more difficult that became. At first, my community was small, and I felt safe. As it grew, I was challenged by onlookers, criticized, and sometimes even made fun of. ”
How did she handle this, you may ask? Pastor Sarah told us that at first she wanted to hide, isolate because it felt safer and more comfortable. However, what makes you comfortable isn’t what is purposeful.
“The little girl in me was afraid. The introvert in me wanted to hide. Sometimes, I still do. I started convincing myself that I would be much safer if I isolated and disconnected. I’d be comfortable, but sometimes what makes you comfortable isn’t what makes you purposeful. ”
In a society where vulnerability is often seen as a weakness, Pastor Sarah’s decision to live publicly and authentically stands as a testament to the strength found in embracing one’s true self, letting go of her fears as well her as her trust in God to keep her safe.
“So I lay down my shield and step under His wing, trusting that God can protect me better than my fears. Not sure who needs to hear this, but some of us aren’t out here because we’re so resilient that nothing affects us.
Some of us are out here because we trust that His strength will be made perfect in our weakness
