Faulty Foundation

Welcome to another episode of The Layers Podcast! In my last episode, my testimony, I voiced how rocky things were growing up, some things were inevitable, but others were due to poor decisions and cycles of sin I had in my life. I speak about this faulty foundation in this episode and how I had no core to my faith. LOVE!! there's layers to it, and I seemed to not peel until college LOL. Truly understanding love lays a lot of ground work for the foundation you need in this journey with Christ, so stay tuned for my perspective and insight. I know I'm late uploading LOL, this topic of love was really supposed to be handled in the month of love, but we'll start march on a high note and keep it pushing.

My Testimony - A Story of Overcoming

LOL the devil thought he had me, oooooo what a run!! Y’all I was a PK wondering if what my dad preached was even true, I went through so much pain that sabotaged years of my life. BUT GOD. I Thank God for freedom, Thank God for deliverance, peace, joy, and every good fruit that comes from the spirit. I pray that this touches you, moves you and I believe God can turn your life around for his glory!! In Mark 9 there’s a man with a son who’s demon possessed. He goes to Jesus for healing and Jesus asks the man if he believes. In verse 24 the father cries “I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief” and that verse is so real to my testimony. So many times I cried asking God for a better life and I knew God was real, but I doubted my life and circumstances could change. I Thank God for the deep understanding of his love and will for my life which was the cure to my unbelief. He can do the same for you!

Mathew 17:21 21 However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.” Mark 9:24 24 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!” T-shirt designed by @ raven.T08 on instagram Connect with me on socials: Instagram: @thelayersspodcast Personal: @_armelle.ks X: @layerswithmelle TikTok: @_armelle.ks Filmed on Sony Zv-1

Welcome to the introduction of my New series: My response is. What’s your response? Today I talk about the response we ought to have due to God’s rescue.

Scriptures Mentioned: John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Noah and the Ark - Genesis 6 Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:1-4 “So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. 2 And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death. 3 The law of Moses was unable to save us because of the weakness of our sinful nature. So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins. 4 He did this so that the just requirement of the law would be fully satisfied for us, who no longer follow our sinful nature but instead follow the Spirit.”

I don’t remember the last time I heard someone express excitement for Jesus, I see it in kids, and In the New Year season, but then after that, it’s back to normal regular life where we go through the motions and I feel like excitement is a lacking expression in the Christian community specifically for GenZ b/c excitement = fun and Christian living supposedly does not = fun. Listen to my take on how to bring excitement back into our faith.

She's a people pleaser pt.2

What happens when growing in your faith becomes a stumbling block in your personal and social life? The world will not agree with your choices to be set apart so now you’re torn between your comfortable lukewarm state vs consistently seeking God and fully surrendering to him. Decision making has been real hard for me lately and one of the main reasons is cause I’m worried and care too much about the people around me. As difficult as it sounds and actually is, letting go and dropping everything to move forward in your spiritual journey is necessary. My new goal is to not let any person get in the way of a plan I know God has set for me simply because I’m tryna be “nice” or ”a good friend” Gal. 1:10 says “I’m trying to win the approval of God, not people” for me this means no longer allowing people and their thoughts or feelings drive my decisions.

Don't you think you look Ridiculous!?!... FT. Bryson

Living for God can look crazyyy sometimes, and not just surface level living like LIVING LIVING. You're seen as different and abnormal. You don’t fit in with the cultural norms and society does everything to break you down. How do you deal with it? That’s what this EP is all about. What does it take to really rely on God and not let the people and the culture and Society get to your brain. Your mind is what really runs everything and there will be emotional roller coasters when dealing with what the outside has to say, But what God has to say, and God’s plan is greater and that is promised and guaranteed to us as long as we step in our purpose and turn away from what the world has to offer. Bryson lets us in on his experience and how he felt with it all, and gives us key tips on how to efficiently deal with the persecution and doubts recieved from the outside.

Listen to this before you Quit!

"I’m not a quitter!!" Something I told myself all the time when in reality there are things or people I have let go or quit on for my convenience and comfort. Life is not meant to be comfortable or easy, so maybe reevaluate that one situation, friendship, relationship, or whatever the case may be to see if you’re really quitting or letting go for the right reasons.

Get your mind right! FT. Kayla

This episode is all about mental health. I believe it's an important subject often overlooked. I also believe that God is overlooked when it comes to Mental Health. It's an issue that needs wayyyyyy more awareness. The Devil will attack your mental, he will use it to tear you down and make yourself believe that you are nothing but a failure, we can overcome and debunk these tactics so that we know our worth and purpose in Christ and build on positivity rather than toxic negativity. Kayla Davis joins me in this episode and we speak on our experiences and overcoming. It's still an ongoing process so a part 2 will definitely be on it's way where we go even more in depth. Hope you enjoy!

She’s a People Pleaser…

"hmmmmm am I doing this for me or for the people? Is this for validation? Who is this benefiting? How is this benefiting me?" Our vision is often shifted by trying to fit into the world view of everything. We always want to fit in, we want to be loved, we want to be known, but if these things are costing you your peace and true worth/value, what exactly is the point? God has your life completely planned out, he knows the desires of your heart as well, so why not seek him for the validation and love we search for in other people? We’re not on this earth to fit in.

Who are they??

I call it Understanding the Misunderstood. We are so quick to judge or react rather than taking a moment to view all perspectives of any kind of situation, Dealing with people is SOOOO HARD (words from an introvert) but dealing with people could be so much easier if we learn to make peace with others. This requires a prayer for patience and compassion when it comes to dealing with others that aren’t like you! So that your initial response when dealing with new or old people isn’t negative. I challenge you all to step out your comfort zone, get to know someone new beyond the surface things. Let’s get to the deeper layers!!

I shouldn’t have said that…

The deeper Layer of thinking before you speak. I ask myself how can I be at peace and the answer was to keep my mouth shut, remain unbothered and everything else should just fall into place. When you make your struggles known to God in prayer. “Aye God, so and so is getting on my nerves and I really need patience and control so that I don’t go off on em, thanks Big Man!”
