GOD MADE exists as a declaration that you can be in the world and not be of the world by expressing your love for GOD, no matter your current situation or past mistakes. It is our hope that we not only provide apparel, but help arm you with the tools necessary to find your GOD-given potential.
How the brand started?
Each day, our generation becomes more consumed by the world; leaving people empty and longing for fulfilment, happiness, and peace to fill the void. In order to become the person that God ultimately want us to be, we must take the lid off of our potential and stand up to be the change that we would like to see in this world. GOD laid this on my heart and I knew it for a while, but I was running until now. I was convinced that I wasn’t capable to fulfill something of this capacity; but as we grow, we must remember that “God does not call the qualified, he qualifies the called”. In life there will be times where we find ourselves running from our potential, due to the expectation that loneliness lies ahead. Still, just as God places something on your heart, He will give you the strength to fulfill His vision.
When I rededicated my life, I decided to accept the calling and responsibility that GOD had for my life. He began to show me the kind of example I needed to be in the world for my generation and for brothers and sisters in the generations to come who have dreams like mine. When we begin to pray for GOD’s will to be done in our life, that’s when He begins to operate and push us to fulfill our promises. In doing this, He revealed this concept to me: “GOD MADE”. The mission is to help enlighten this generation and the world. It’s ok to be young and lit for GOD!
