My soul aches…

I am a very compassionate and empathetic person.  I am also a pretty devout Southern Baptist Christian which means I try my best not to judge or condemn people.  But there are just some things that make my soul ache….

I know that over 2000 years ago Jesus Christ gave his life so that we can all be saved.  I also know that the Lord our God has given us all free will.  But when I see things like this, see the post below, I cannot help but wonder “why?”.  I can admit that I get weak at times.  In these moments I lean on my faith and I pray.

However, I am also a firm believer in Karma! Remember “do unto others as you would have them do unto you!” I am not a proponent for vengeance, because you should never add flame to an already intense fire. It brings me peace in knowing that “what goes around comes around” and the Lord/Universe, which ever you believe, will give your transgressors there just do.

Good Morning, it's Fri-YAY!  You made it to today and Today is the perfect day to do that little bit of good for someone else-- smile, listen, hold a door, drop a dollar, make a call, give a hug, etc.  There are endless ways to help good catch-on.  #ResistanceTools #positivevibes #ActsofKindness #randomactsofkindness #grace #teachthebabies Good Morning!  Here's to being the best kind of wild, difficult and impossible today and everyday.  Walk firmly in self-love that radiates so much so,  it is hard to forget and easily passes on to others! #ResistenceTools #positivevibes #teachthebabies #myblackisbeautiful #thoughts #affirmations 📷: cc @respectthequeenllc Be about it, the business of uniting!  @mamietillmobley: Really tired of hearing that Black folks don't know how to unite. If you're complaining about our folks not "uniting", it's probably you who is sitting on the sidelines. Maybe you just didn't have enough GRIT to stick out the process of change. We have several opportunities for you to join in and support Black businesses and Black people... Don't believe me, take a look at initiatives like the @tulsarealestatefund , Families United 4 Justice, and even the long sustaining history of HBCUs and Divine 9 organizations. We certainly have found ways to unite our coins and our energy within the Black church. Now nothing great comes without struggle but it is certainly easier to influence change from the inside. Get involved or take initiative to start something new. But I'm changing the narrative around "what Black people do and don't do..." I suggest you do too because our oppressor is watching... 👀We do "A LOT" with and for our people. Don't believe the hype!  @mrjaymorrison @cephus_uncle_bobby Good Morning.  The supportive network you build and cultivate will keep you lifted when times get hard.  Keep on building. #ResistenceTools #teachthebabies #Network #Ujima #myhitta #Soror #MyCircle Until then, Winter is here... #GoT7 #GameofThrones Yassss to all of this! Can't wait... #BlackPantherMovie #BlankPanther 📷: @becauseofthem Good Morning. Good vibes, gratitude, positive thoughts and progressive actions are powerful in the fight to end oppression, from the inside out.  Sending love and light your way today. #ResistenceTools #thankfulthursday #positivevibes #myblackisbeautiful 📷: @alfredstreetbc Happy Monday! Let's work on being the blessing that rewrites the narrative this week, loves. #MondayMotivation #ResistenceTools
