Jess. 26 years old. I love art, music, baking and star tipping.
He's blessed me with many gifts, including the gift of loving others tremendously [so let's be friends]. This is my walk with Him.
While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.
You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.

If I want to get closer to God, I have to stop walking in sin - not just because I don’t like the effects of sin but because I want to draw near to God and you cannot be sinful and get near God. Yes, God promises his rewards to those who diligently seek Him - but knowing Christ for the sake of knowing Him far surpasses rewards - the reward of knowing Him is more than enough. His grace is sufficient.

which is a bit different than being on camera knocking someone out cold with a left hook.
I find it interesting how so many of us are afraid that someone won’t love us because of our past, or certain things about us such as our body image, habits, or simply our confidence; when most people are just looking for someone to love and who will love them back.
44% of the audience of Guardians of the Galaxy is female and all the speculation states that women went to see it for Chris Pratt’s body. I don’t think that’s fair. Maybe (and this is crazy) they just like kickass movies with space shit and explosions. Maybe women can do things without men being their motivation. Maybe.
Why I Hate Religion But Love Jesus
Most people think happiness is about gaining something, but it’s not. It’s all about getting rid of the darkness you accumulate.
