It is so scary how similar it is! In Gaza you have tanks going through the city, and in FERGUSON, MISSOURI you have tanks going down the streets opening fire on men and women for pulling out their cellphones because it’s dark and “it could be a weapon.” WHEN IT IS PEACEFUL PROTEST, but yet the Pentagon grants them MILITARY GRADE WEAPONS? Why is there any need for this? I just cannot understand and the whole thing is terrifying. Prayers and hugs to everyone in Ferguson. If you know of any petitions to sign, any donations that are going on PLEASE participate to the best of your ability and keep saving, and reblogging photos because they are beginning to control the media and have photos/articles taken down. LET THESE FASCIST PIGS KNOW THAT WE ARE ALL WATCHING AND THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES.
But it was Jesus who taught me there was nothing I could really lose if I had Him. He taught me to be palms up, just like He was. Palms up means you have nothing to hide and nothing to gain or lose. Palms up means you are strong enough to be vulnerable, even with your enemies. Even when you have been tremendously wronged. Jesus was palms up, to the end.Bob Goff, Love Does (via godmoves)
The remarkable thing about God is that when you fear God, you fear nothing else, whereas if you do not fear God, you fear everything else.Oswald Chambers (via jag24)
