Kierra Sheard talks about overcoming doubt, disbelief, and discouragement
Article by Sebrina Bush
Kierra Sheard says she has been battling with spirits of doubt, disbelief and discouragement, and now she’s revealing how she has learned to rebuke and defeat those things.
Sheard, the 29-year-old gospel music singer and designer of the eleven60 clothing line, created a YouTube video called “Kierra’s Konfession” where she revealed how she has managed fear. She revealed that she had been struggling with self doubt and comparing herself to others and called on her mother and friend for help as she fought not to fall into feelings of depression.
“I’ve just been having the spirit of doubt and disbelief and discouragement coming over me,” Sheard revealed. “Like it’s almost trying to push me into this corner of depression and I’m not letting it happen.”
Sheard said her mother, gospel artist Karen Clark Sheard encouraged her to learn to speak to herself, even though the world may see that as weird. And a close friend suggested that she change her prayers to ask God how she can use her gifts instead of question the gifts that were given to her.
“If God is infinite and He said that I’m well equipped and He’s providing for me everything that I need to be successful then it’s very possible that there’s a back room that I have not gone into to get the proper equipment for this next season,” she said in the video. “So I hope that you are inspired to keep praying but to change your prayers to say ‘Lord, I need wisdom I need the instruction and just kick it with God.'”
