kdrama: faith

To know and love her as both a friend and a lover has been the most rewarding and amazing experience of my life. She makes every day worth looking forward to and just knowing I’m in love with my best friend is the most incredible feeling. She’s it for me. It’s her.

I don't know if you'll reply but I would love if it you did. I try my best to be faithful to God but I have only recently discovered Him. I am not trying to make excuses, but I would love some tips on how to be closer with God, and how to incorporate Him into my day to day life.

Of  course I’d reply HAHA! :D I have a YT channel that is dedicated to helping bring new Christians closer to God as well as helping older, lukewarm Christians revive their lives in Christ. If you haven’t checked it out and you’re interested, it’s Leighla93. You totally motivated me to make more videos! I just have difficulty making time to make them regularly, but maybe you can pray for me? :) I love that you’re hungry for more of God, and this is a good place to be. Remember this is a conviction from the Holy Spirit, and if you ever feel like you’re not in the mood to be all about God, try your best never to give up in this faith…remember that hunger for God. Have you been born again as in baptized? It’s important to take that step if you haven’t. Doing this will help attract/keep the kind of company you need in your spiritual growth. Get plugged in at church, into a group you find humble and trusting. Trust God with your decisions, He’s started this in you and so He is also now your guide for the rest of your life. I suggest learning how to journal in your quiet times…usually early in the morning before everyone else gets up. If you already journal then this shouldn’t be hard for you. Journal about you feelings, whenever they’re good or whenever they’re bad, but always finish your entry with praises and thanks for God. No matter how bad you may be feeling on certain days, know that He’s watching every effort you put in this relationship. When you’re journaling, doing it for Him makes you aware of your mental state and that you want to be better by surrendering to His therapy. Writing down your feelings instead of venting to a parent, best friend, or boyfriend/girlfriend will more often lead you to pray mentally or verbally to God, which ultimately strengthens your dependence on Him. Focus on being more like His Son, Jesus. I believe a lot of lukewarm Christians miss that big key, which is Christ. Most people just go straight to God expecting their prayers to be answered without first looking at Christ and displaying the humility He had before the Father. Lukewarm Christians are stagnant because they do not often see God answering their prayers, so they go on living in their own terms without really realizing it. Remember Jesus died for our sins, so that we may have everlasting life. I’m not just talking about eternal life, I’m also talking about a full and meaningful life here on earth. He has set the example for us all. We cannot and will not enter the Kingdom of God if we don’t have a day to day relationship with His Son. 1 Peter 2:21-25. Focus on Jesus and put on His character everyday the best you can. He was humble, patient, loving, understanding, forgiving….I suggest also putting reminders all over your bedroom walls or anywhere you know you will be spending a lot of time in. These reminders should be positive affirmations and also maybe visuals that will build your faith as a Christian. No other person should be as responsible for encouraging yourself in this walk as much as you should be to you. Once you start praying for something, never end it until you have peace in your heart, until you’ve fully trusted God. Once you keep practicing that, then prayer should become so natural like breathing. Memorize uplifting Bible verses. They are God’s promises to you! I’m going to find some of the best Christian vloggers for you to follow and make a post about it. For now I hope this helps. I’ll pray for you! God bless!! <3

By His Grace, Sheela

Eid Mubarak to all of my Muslim friends and followers!

I’ll never understand infectious vitality which you bring to my politics. You face so much tragedy: hate crimes, skyscraper fires, vicious state policy. And yet you rise above it all with towering grace. You’re stronger than I could ever hope to be.

I know it isn’t much, but Full Marx stands shoulder-to-shoulder with all those persecuted for their faith on this happiest (and tastiest!) of holy days.

What's your opinion on gay people? And gay marriage? Struggling with the idea that I can still be a Christian and embrace my sexuality.. always grew up to believe that I was a terrible person and God wouldn't love me for who I was..

People are people. God is love. God loves all people, unconditionally - gay, straight or any other sexuality. His deepest desire is to have a relationship with us and for us to understand our worth as a child of God. He doesn’t love us for what we do or don’t do, he doesn’t stop loving us for what we do or don’t do, he just loves us because we are his children.

Christians can say and do a lot of hurtful and harmful things at times. They can be judgemental. I’m sorry for that. I hope you are able to see past people who mess up and make mistakes and hurt you and see the true heart of a God who does love you just as you are ❤️

Wardrobe

My OC’s Fashion.

Wrote this while I was moving as a way to relieve some of my stress. Finally cleaned it up enough to post 

Tagging: @royslittleharper @guns-n-lilies @the-shadow-of-atlantis @coffee-randomness @daisyboobear @werewitchling @nightwing-rules



Happiness

If there was one way to describe Gigi’s fashion choices it would be happiness. She always based every choice that went into her wardrobe on how it made her feel. This meant color and a lot of it.


Color, bright and vibrant. Loud screaming and laughing in your face. Gigi’s fashion was always filled with smiles and joy. Her closet was like opening a skittles bag and throwing it into a bag of glitter. All sparkly and sticky sweet.

Animals, all looking out at you with little baby faces. Yellow ducks and tiny kittens. All topped off with bows. All paired with bright colored pants or skirts. The more fluffy and adorable the better. Although there was that one Rhinoceros sweater she did love.


Her hair was almost always up with some fun hair accessory. Headbands and Bows. She even found a box of old butterfly clips her twin had from the 90’s. She had put them all in and Maia had asked if she was going to fly way as she danced around the training room. The way each wing fluttered and sparkled she almost felt like she could.


There isn’t a stitch of black in this girl’s life. Except for that one pair of jeans because it went with that Panda sweater she had found at a thrift store. That one didn’t count because Gigi informs everyone that she will convert them into happy pants too.


Comfort

When you are as active as Faith comfort is the first thing you look for. Easy to move in cotton shirts and baggy pants. She’s active so her wardrobe is filled with every type of sweatpant with matching hoodie. Graphic tees with funny sayings that sometimes only she gets. And let’s not forget that one jean jacket that she and the losers drew all over with sharpie.


She may own a pair of Converse in every color. A rainbow of shoes that litter her closet. Each scuffed up and worn from her many night adventures.


All her jeans have holes in them. Not intentional but from the mischief, she gets into. Each tear tells a different story. Each patch covers up all bruises and scars underneath. Nothing is sacred when it comes to Faith’s wardrobe. Nothing is safe.


Yellow and blue, those are her colors. Sunshine and clouds. A perfect day where any adventure is possible. Like her best friend, she loves happy things but they also have a level of practicality to them.


Except for that yellow beanie with the smiley face on it. That is just for her.



Feminine

Jennifer is all beauty and grace in a designer dress. A bit of a clothing whore with a closet filled with so many high ends brands that even she doesn’t even want to admit it. Each piece both practical and very stylish.

Rows and rows of heels for every occasion. Practical nudes for work and running around the city. Colorful brights when she wants a pick-me-up. And don’t forget those sky-highs for her adventures out after the sun goes down.

Her style is all lace and leather. Beautiful flowing patterns with flashes of danger. Glimmers or rebellion behind a black blazer as she takes you in and opens you up to things you didn’t even know about yourself. Safe and beautiful before showing you the edge you didn’t even realize was there.

Gentle pastels with dark earthy combos. Blood red with mint blue. Sweet and bitter in your mouth as she walks by. Captivating and down to earth. A ballgown with combat boots in just the right combo that you would never think twice.

Fun, soft floral patterns that remind you of your grandmother’s wallpaper paired with a modern leather jacket your excuse to wear. Add a little danger like a low cut top paired with dark clean denim and a sexy red lip. She’s the girl at the bar you can’t take your eyes off and will laugh with you all night.

Yet at the end of the night when she’s alone. You will find her curled up with a bottle of wine, a simple band tee, and comfy sweatpants she probably stole from her sister.

It isn’t always easy to admit to yourself that you might be dealing with something you are incapable of handling alone. As someone who still suffers severely from trauma and depression myself, I want you to know I am here for you. We always view these unseen enemies of the mind as something we have to fight by ourselves. But you are not alone. You will never be alone. 

Know that there are others out there to help you, and support you. I am so, so proud of you for making it this far, and cannot possibly imagine what you have suffered through. You are alive, you are here.

And you are strong

I’m pretty sure you didn’t need me or Paps telling you that. But we will anyway. You are loved, anon, no matter where in your life you may be.
