"I have said things to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world."
I'm all about that truth. It really will get better. All things will be restored. The pain will end. It really will.
talking to very republican teenagers is so surreal
It must be strange for you to see teenagers who don’t blindly follow their liberal parents, or their liberal teachers, or the liberal media, or liberal celebrities, or liberal musicians, or liberals on the internet.
lol seeing as I grew up in North Carolina, so i was strange for me to see teenagers who didn’t blindly follow their conservative parents, or their conservative teachers, or the conservative media (Fox News was their primary source of news) or conservative politicians or conservative preachers or conservatives on the Internet.
God is not a man. God is not a white man.
God is a poor queer black transgender homeless illegal immigrant woman.
Because God is a God of the oppressed.
Do you think God speaks to us through music?
(And I’m not talking worship music.)
In a very, very specific way?
Not just to uplift us or remind us of truths or whatever.
But to really tell us something very personal and particular to us.
To tell me something very personal and particular to me.
Because I swear, some songs were written specifically for me.
To tell me something that isn’t for anyone else but me.
That’s what divinity is to me.
The thing about Christianity (when actually done as it was meant to) is that its practice is the antithesis of self-serving.
