in the presence of my savior

I made a post about this before but that was last year and I’m making a new one to keep track of new notes… here’s the original (with a few edits)—

If you see some particularly spicy Discourse™, and you don’t feel like giving a serious response to it, everyone has my permission to make the following paragraph I wrote for half an hour straight a copypasta:

Good macklemorning! I am here to discuss my passion for Macklemore, the one true macklelord and savior! I mackleadore him, and will mackleroar his name from the rooftops. He macklesoars through the sky, never ceasing to be a macklebore. (However, it’s in a family friendly way: he doesn’t do mackleporn.) If you want to mackleignore what I have to say, try not to slam the mackledoor on the way out, macklepor favor! Macklemoreover, I would be mackleforlorn in my very macklecore without his glorious presence. I macklescorn anyone who disagrees with me on this one. They must be a macklechore at parties, honestly… they make me macklesnore.

SQ setting up for endgame?

(SPOILERS FOR NEW EPISODE BELOW)





So I just watched the new episode and let me just say…If I was a CS fan, I’d be annoyed out of my mind with the recent development.

So first off, finally we can throw out the headcanon/assumed canon of “If you’re turned into the Dark One you automatically become evil!”

We’ve had it proven with Emma when she was turned (though people argued that because she was Emma/The Savior she was able to resist the darkness) but now we have official proof with RUMPLE.

Rumple was able to not succumb to the darkness. He was in the presence of mind to not start taking lives like we thought and not abuse his magic and actually argued against killing someone. In fact, there’s strong evidence from the recent episode to suggest that Rumple was just doing all of those things so his son wouldn’t give into darkness! He was being a monster so his son would grow to hate magic and turn away from the darkness…which obviously worked.

That means no, becoming the Dark One doesn’t mean you instantly become evil…which means there’s no longer an explanation or excuse for Hook and what he did! Both times when he realized he was a Dark One he did awful things. There’s no rationalizing it anymore.

We’ve gotten proof of him having “dark” tendencies also when Rumple returned his hand to him and (LIED) about it bringing back his old darkness. We found out that was a lie at the end of the episode - so it just proves that Hook is still not fully reformed/redeemed and is honestly just acting out for Emma’s sake.

So this brings me to this point - with all this being said, can we really expect CaptainSwan to be endgame or are the writers pulling a fast one on us?



Rumple, despite being the Dark One NEVER intentionally hurt his loved ones a’la Bae and Belle. Hell, he didn’t even hurt Milah until she told him how much she hated him and whatever and he reacted out of anger. But besides that, he didn’t try to hurt his loved ones.

Emma is the same. When she got turned, she didn’t try to hurt her loved ones intentionally.

When Hook was turned? His FIRST instinct was to hurt Emma. How could that be true love? How could Emma want to be with a guy who continuously lies to her and has proven multiple times he doesn’t trust her? It just doesn’t make sense. Emma has let things go because she thought she was going to die but now that she feels safe I can’t imagine she’d react too well to Hook keeping this huge secret from her.

I honestly feel like they’re gearing up for Rumple to die before the finale so they can set up a Hook x Belle pairing. They’ve already given the two scenes together and character development so it would make sense.

And I think that would free up Emma to be with Regina.

The more I think of it the more it makes sense. Although they’ve said certain things were unintentional, I don’t think they ever once directly denied SQ being endgame. I think Adam was very specific in his tweet:

And I think there’s a reason for that.


Not to mention Emma and Hook have broken 0 curses or done anything else that true loves do. Emma and Regina HAVE. So I think that makes it more obvious.

tbh i was thinkin and like im legit never gonna forget the moment i saw normani on stage like i think tha was the moment i accepted ha as my lord and savior fully cause like… she was the first one i saw and yall… she isnt real like i dont think im ever gonna get over the fact tha she is…. 1000000000x more beautiful live than she is in pics like… shes … like i swear yal tha place was PACKED and she was like .. a PRESENCE ….. i only have clear memories of normani and me crying cause of her

(Poem) "A Sinner I Am"

Written by Amanda Lakins


His presence is here, His voice crystal clear;

The Holy Spirit’s within. 

Forgiveness is dear, sinning’s my fear, 

For the Christian woman I am.

Right from wrong, wrong from right, 

The Bible tells me so.

I’m within his sight as I repent at night, 

As a Christian, I’m not status quo. 

He is my armor and my shield

To cast upon my fears. 

My children whom his hands have healed, 

This Christian praises with tears. 

My Savior Christ, my Father God, my mentor, my best friend;

Although me and this earth are flawed, 

This world I will still transcend. 

The flesh is broken but God has spoken;

With the blood of the Lamb, 

Sacrificed his very life, 

For the Christian sinner I am.

“Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
 Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior”

So I will call upon Your name
And keep my eyes above the waves
When oceans rise
My soul will rest in Your embrace
For I am Yours and You are mine

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders
Let me walk upon the waters
Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander
And my faith will be made stronger
In the presence of my Savior

I can’t stop listening to this song ever since I heard it at church this past Sunday. It speaks to my soul!

Colonialism made me think being Filipino was ugly. 

Colonialism made me feel like the U.S. was our savior 

Colonialism made me want to be more American and less Filipino 

Colonialism made me hate my skin 

I will always be pro-Pilipinx. I will always love being Pinay. I will fight for my people and decolonize all aspects of my life. 

U.S. presence is violence. White is violence. 

But the Indigenous Taos will prevail.

@evillmajesty.

                 she sinks down from her hands and knees to her shoulders and knees instead. before she was the dark one, emma had always liked to change things up, but now that she IS the Dark One, she has become more dominating than ever. but regina can’t complain. with her torso down and her backside lifted, she leans back, rubbing her ass against emma’s cock. “please,” she whispers.


      it’s no secret that one of the things she loves most about being the dark one is the endless   POWER   that rests in the palms of her hands ; especially when she can use that power over the mayor in moments like these. she’s unmoving, fully taking in the sight of the exposed woman who practically offers her body to the dark one. PLEASE WHAT? but emma’s not about to give it to her that easily, not until the mayor’s squirming  &&  ( begging ). she lays her hands over regina’s round rear, kneading it between her fingers before she positions herself that she’s able to brush her lips against the back of the woman’s neck. ‘  tell me, regina, is there something someone has never done for you in bed? something from your deepest &  DIRTIEST  fantasies? ‘

The Sin that Chokes You

I couldn’t breathe,
and I couldn’t see.
The skies were blurry before me and
I couldn’t seem to grasp the air around me
and I couldn’t see.
There I was, a feeble being, indulging in my sin
that sin that pleases me, when all of sudden
I couldn’t see.
I couldn’t see the narrow path that had always remained
as an option. The path of thistles and thorns, less pleasant than
the wide path of poisonous roses and beautiful deaths.  
A road well-travelled, always full of souls, of footsteps, of faces,
smiling faces- faces oblivious to the pit of disgrace and judgment that
lie before them.
I couldn’t see
the faded light of the Savior’s glory - His radiance lost in the distance 
of thought. His forgiveness buried in the dirt below my feet - all I could see
was darkness. Darkness that transcended the night sky during an eclipse
in the blackest part of the four corners of the world.
I had run for God - He was no longer in my presence, no longer in my sight, 
no longer within reach of me. I heard cackling in the distance,
an unfamiliar sound - unpleasant and menacing. Where am I? Where am I?
I am at the face of my sin, the sin that choked the Christ out of me.
The sin that spat in the face of the Creator. 
The sin that wiped away my humility and replaced it with pride. 
The sin that crushed my spirit and planted seeds of doubt.
The sin that knows not mercy but brutality and hate. 
The sin that choked the Christ out of me.
I couldn’t see– I couldn’t see for a time until one day
I began to open my eyes.
The wet sockets of my tear ducts were wiped away
by the neverending grace of the Savior. He found me- his lost sheep -
leaving the flock to reclaim the one from the many. He coddled me
and kissed my forehead, restoring what was lost by a simple touch
of his love. He walked with me and held my hand, whispering -
“I will never leave nor forsake you.”
And there it went into the ground, erased from existence,
the sin that choked the Christ out of me.

trying to find the words and a photo to match, to express how FULL i am right now. it is way past my bed time, but what’s a bed time when you’re in his holy presence? there is none.

lord knows how much of his divine word confirmed much of what has been lingering and marinating in my heart tonight. tears of joy and peace!

all i can say is if you’re a believer of his truth, his word, and acknowledge him as your lord and savior, know that his abundance is knocking at your door! you have to trust him, open the door, and receive the mighty things that have YOUR name on it! he’s waiting for his children to come home. but don’t make him wait too long.

god definitely has a way of letting his children know that he cares. when we feel like we are unworthy or unloved, he is right by our side, in our ear, living in our hearts. we are saved by grace!

the desires of my heart continue to overflow. the JOY continues to bubble over. and my LIGHT continues to shine bright in any darkness!

i encourage you to listen, take heed of his voice and what he is saying. for HE is the Great I Am, the King of all kings, the Almighty, the Prince of Peace, the Provider, and the Creator of ALL things.

AIM FOR THE THINGS ABOVE, HEAD NORTH!

with love and light. amen.
