Can’t you see the angels standing up with you? Creating a shield for you? So the enemy can not touch you. - #NeverAlone by Jekalyn Carr « Psalm 91:11-12»

Hi! My name is Christian JaLon & I have been disobedient to God since JUNE, 2019 pertaining to a specific thing that became more than just THAT thing. — My disobedience placed me into Spiritual warfare. Months passed & I’m questioning God, « what did I or didn’t I do? » I began finding emotional dependency in other folks, which for me leads to unhealthy attachments. I mean going to them before even thinking about cracking open my Scripture or praying. I wasn’t even doing my devotion for about a week (this passed week). I was finding value in the wrong things; ALLOWING myself to become distracted. But last evening, my mother & I went to God’s feet. I held myself accountable for my disobedience & lack of effort to even try. Today, I turned on Tasha Cobbs-Leonard & I began my scripture starting from the last place in the books of Acts that I left off last week. I kid you not when I say an INSTANT feeling of RESTORATION fell over me. This is not my first time being in this place, but this time I’m going to fight to be sure it’s my last. — All in all, I don’t feel like myself when I’m running away from God & His hand. I NEED Him to survive, & I mean that most literally (I was questioning if I was going to make it to my 22nd birthday). — I’m as vulnerable w/ you all as I am because I want you all to trust me, & some of you like to expel onto me that you think me to be, or have at one point thought me to be « super human ». I’m not sure if that will ever change. But let me say this; the ONLY thing(s) SUPER about ME is the God that I serve & the gifts He’s blessed me with. May the righteous right hand of God prevail over each of our lives. I LOVE US!!! ❤️❤️❤️ Feb. 1, 2020 - #NewMusic , #DebutAlbum , #FullLengthAlbum , #HappyBlackHistoryMonth

It was the power of Mrs. Fannie Lou Hamer’s singing that first brought her to the attention of SNCC. In August of 1962, eighteen local people from Sunflower County, Mississippi, including Mrs. Hamer, traveled by bus from Ruleville to the courthouse in Indianola. Despite armed white men milling about the courthouse, the group entered the registrar’s office, intending to fill out the voter registration form as best they could. Mrs. Hamer was the first to enter.
When the group began heading home, the bus–an old school bus now used to transport cotton pickers to the fields–was pulled over by the Indianola police at the edge of town. The driver was arrested for driving a bus of “the wrong color.” Fear rose among the passengers. But in the midst of the fear and uncertainty, Mrs. Hamer began to sing, raising her powerful voice first in church songs, then movement songs. This helped calm the other passengers. Mrs. Hamer’s voice continued to be a powerful tool that mobilized many in Mississippi and across the South during times of struggle in the Movement.
She was born in 1917, the youngest of twenty children. After reaching the sixth grade at the age of 12, she dropped out of school to work on the cotton plantations of the Delta. Yet when SNCC workers arrived in Sunflower County, Mrs. Hamer was a timekeeper on the B.D. Marlowe plantation because she was literate.
After her attempt to register to vote in 1962, Marlowe demanded she retract her application or face eviction. Mrs. Hamer refused and was immediately kicked off his land. When she moved into town to stay with a family, white men pumped 16 shots into the house where she was staying, barely missing the occupants. Despite threats and violence, her spirit was unbowed, and her voice became more powerful and influential. Her ability to speak plainly and persuasively impacted most everyone who encountered her, especially SNCC workers, who paid careful attention to her arguments and were swayed by her charisma.
In 1964, Hamer helped found the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party. #blackstorian
Only 154 years ago (let that sink in) did the actual emancipation of slaves happen. The Emancipation Proclamation was signed by Abe Lincoln in September 1862. It was not written to end slavery as most people think. It’s sole purpose was to call the slaves in the rebellion states during the Civil War to be free and allow them to join the Union because he know he was going to lose. It it made no mention of the other southern states that were apart of the Union or any of the states that the Union forces had occupied. The last slaves to be free from slavery were in Texas June 19, 1865. 3 years after the Emancipation Proclamation. The 4th of July was first celebrated July 4, 1776. That’s 89 years before the 13th Amendment was ratified. Which means that this holiday was never meant for me. It wasn’t meant for any black person in America. So while I will enjoy the food and the day off from work that I get, I will not be celebrating (literally) the white man holiday. #juneteenth#thefightcontiunes#happyblackhistorymonth#imblackasfuck
Heaven gained an angel Chef Leah Chase 👩🏽🍳👑😇♥️ From our black history month post:
Leah Chase is a New Orleans chef, author and television personality. She is known as the Queen of Creole Cuisine, and she advocates both African-American art and Creole cooking. Her restaurant, Dooky Chase, was known as a gathering place during the 1960s among many who participated in the Civil Rights Movement, and was known as a gallery due to its extensive African-American art collection. When African Americans could not get into many of the city’s restaurants in the 50s and early 60s, Leah Chase cooked for the civil rights workers. She even brought meals to struggling artists and catered their openings before they became famous. #28daysofblackhistoryfacts#HappyBlackHistoryMonth
Too many of us have saving accounts that we recklessly abuse and choose to only utilize when our current accounts don’t have enough to cover our lifestyles ⠀
Your saving account should do just what it says. ⠀⠀
It should save you.!⠀⠀
It should be able to save you from emergencies, save you from times when income may be stalled, or save you from having to worry about how you’re going to pay for an expense that you knew was coming. ⠀⠀
How many of you find yourselves in repeated cycle of putting money in your savings account only to pull it right out?

------Я неидеальная девушка!!-----⠀
Что такое идеал?Лично для вас?
Как Вы себе представляете идеального человека?⠀
Начала пост с такого названия не спроста...
Почему же люди стремятся найти идеальную вторую половинку?
Понимая, что для всех мил не будешь и всем не угодишь, ты пытаешься выбрать лучшего/ую... Конечно идеалы у каждого свои, безусловно, там умный красивый тэдэ и тэпэ..Это все понятно.
Но ребята стоп!
А соответствуете ли вы сами своему "вымышленному" либо же "ожидаемому" идеалу?
Все мы конечно понимаем, что каждый заслуживает на то что хочет, но некоторые пытаются прыгать выше головы и это выглядит не как странно, а как смешно)⠀
Хотят чтобы с ними был человек " идеальный" но в то же время ничегошеньки не предпринимают чтобы даже сами для себя быть лучше, выше этого.⠀
