21 things Jesus wants you to know … right now

You are my beloved. (Eph. 5:1)

I knew you before you were born. As my hands formed you, I whispered purpose into your bones. I can’t not love you. (Ps. 139:1-6)

I love you beyond human reason—even at your very worst, steeped in sin. (Rom. 5:8)

My love is contrary to all you know of “love.” I Love you “even though” and “deeper still.” My love reaches, pursues, remains. (Ps. 36:5)

My Love for you won’t walk out, fail, or ever come to an end. (Deut. 31:8)

No matter what you’ve heard or what you’ve come to believe, there’s nothing that can separate you from my Love. (Rom. 8:38-39)

I am not like people. So please—don’t put human words in my mouth or apply human behaviors to my character. You will miss me altogether. (Isaiah 55:8)

I’ve never ignored you. I’ve been here all along. Protecting. Loving. Waiting. (Ps. 56:8)

Your love of _____ (sin) isn’t worth eternity. I will break your chains. I will give you the desires of your heart. (Jn. 8:32, Ps. 37:4)

Please forgive some of my followers. People—even Christian people—will fail you. You live in a fallen land, where no one is perfect and all need My grace. Put your faith and trust in Me alone. (Psalm 146:3)

There’s no sin I will not forgive. You are the “whosoever believes in me” whom I will give eternal life … if you believe. (John 3:16)

As resourceful and brilliant as you are, you cannot save yourself. It’s by God’s grace and faith in Me alone that you are saved. (Eph 2:8-9)

I understand your pain and heartbreak. And my heart breaks with you. (Is. 53:3)

There’s nowhere you can go where my Love won’t find you. (Psalm 139:7-8)

The shame and guilt weighs you down has been taken care of on the cross. Your bill has been zeroed out. (John 3:16)

The addictions. The pride. The selfishness. The hate. The lust. The jealousy. The critical spirit. The greed. I can heal it. All of it. You can start fresh. Today. (Rom. 8:1-4)

I will forgive you. But only if you ask. And I care more about the “ask” than I do about the sin. (Acts 3:19)

I will not force you to do or be anything. I want a relationship with you more than I want to rule over you. (Jeremiah 31:3)

I will forgive your sin and I will forget it. That’s right—completely erase it from my mind. No replays, no record. Gone. (Ps. 103:12)

It’s never too late to turn your life around. I came to give second chances. (Luke 23:42-43)

I love you. Let’s talk. (Jer. 29:13)

Nicki Minaj shining a light on the differences on acceptable sexuality from white women and black women.

While it has a good deal to do with color, it also has to do with the fact of how her sexuality is used.

The women above her could arguably be said to be catering to the sexual needs/wants/fantasies of men (Sports Illustrated is ESPECIALLY known for catering to a male gaze.)  While Nicki Minaj has continuously used her sexuality to empower herself.  Her sexuality isn’t for men, it’s for her own self.  And THAT is a huge problem.  Sexuality that isn’t designed for male consumption is deemed unacceptable and threatening.  She is powerful, demanding, uncompromising, and men are weak, so that scares them.

And it’s also because she’s of Indian/Black background, no doubt about it.  It’s not just racist, it’s also sexist.

HERE’S JUST HOW MUCH IT PAYS TO BE CONVENTIONALLY ATTRACTIVE

We’ve come to expect impossible, even improbable standards of beauty to populate our magazines and our television shows. It’s another thing entirely to find they’ve invaded our workplace.

Watch Vox’s full video to see the many other ways these unrealistic beauty standards effect where we work.

Holy schnikes.

Now let’s just unpack who is “conventionally attractive”

^^^^^^^

Hands free bonding ‼️

$0.00 ‼️

Today was the last straw. I had to find a way to hands free parent. When I feed him, he falls asleep but when I lay him down… Game on. Here come the tears and poked out lip.

PROBLEM SOLVED!

Just like our african ancestor sistren, I tied this baby up on my tittie and did what I had to do. Keep it moving! Dishes, laundry & breakfast with baby Z hands free!
