Article By Charity Davis // EEW Magazine // Faith Quotes
Christian actress Yvonne Orji’s onscreen character may be wild and crazy, but off screen she is crazy in love with Jesus!
Best known as Molly on HBO’s “Insecure,” this 35-year-old single, saved, and sassy star has lots to say about her faith in Christ—and we love it.
In no particular order, here are EEW Magazine Online’s Top 5 favorite faith quotes from the Nigerian co-host of the Jesus & Jollof podcast.
#1 On Releasing Control: “I can only see what's in front of me, but God can see what's behind, what's ahead of me, what's beside me, and it just makes it so much easier to release control, because at the end of the day, if He brought me to it, He's gonna have to bring me through it.”
#2 On Rejection: “You can't tell me no, because you can't tell Jesus no. It doesn't work.”
#3 On the Benefits of Her Relationship with God: “Over the years, my relationship with God has changed my life for the better - it's grown me up, given me a sense of purpose, and grounded me in my identity.”
#4 On Being an Effective Witness: “Sometimes you are the only living, walking, breathing version of the Bible that people will ever see. What long-lasting taste are you going to leave in their mouths? A lot of people have left a bad taste. And it's so unfortunate, because God is the best!”
#5 On Spending Time with God: “I get my God-time in, definitely. Otherwise, I don’t think God would bless me. He’d be like, ‘You’ve got it now and you don’t have time for me?’”
We love to see this smart, talented, funny woman of God representing the Kingdom so well. Keep up the good work Yvonne!
