When they make a black widow movie, the trailer needs to be all mysterious and the song playing needs to be Scarlett Johansson singing a lullaby cover of the itsy bitsy spider

I need this in my life

That sounds fucking terrifying.

The lullaby should be in Russian.

I just…. there is so much wrong with this like THIS IS A SONG FOR PLUS SIZED POSITIVITY IN A WORLD WHERE THERE BASICALLY IS NONE and thin people STILL have to make it all about them and their feelings while girls are literally KILLING THEMSELVES out here to fit into a standard of beauty that should be considered arbitrary. 

I just. I need to sit down a moment I am literally so mad. 

DO YOU KNOW WHAT REALLY GRINDS MY BONES???

IN THE SONG SHE SINGS “FUCK THOSE SKINNY BITCHES- /NAH I’M JUST PLAYING/ I KNOW YOU THINK YOU’RE FAT BUT EVERY INCH OF YOU IS PERFECT FROM THE BOTTOM TO THE TOP’

SHE LITERALLY SINGS THATS SHES KIDDING AND SHE THINKS YOUR PERFECT

SO YH FUCK THESE COMMENTERS BECAUSE YH THERE MAYBE SOME OTHER ISSUES WITH THE SONG BUT IM NOT DEALING WITH PEOPLE WHO DONT LOOK UP LYRICS

DEAR SKINNY GIRLS COMPLAINING: I’M SORRY THAT WHEN SOMEONE FINALLY WROTE A SONG THAT TELS ME I’M BEAUTIFUL, IT MADE YOU FEEL BAD (EVEN THOUGH IT’S BODY POSITIVE FOR ALL TYPES). IT FEELS FUCKING AWFUL, DOESN’T IT.

no comment from my side.

oh look dean carrying his crying baby brother out of a burning house for the second time

WHO GAVE YOU THE RIGHT

Okay, but does anyone else see the moment where Dean switches from NOT AGAIN to hunter mode?

And the absolute terror in his eyes remembering exactly what happened with sam smack dab in the middle of it again

God.. these brothers are just.. it hurts.. and the actors who play the part are just too good at it..

You can tell what they’re saying. If you try you can literally hear them calling . dean to sam and sam to jess

Day one- walking by faith

"I will walk by faith even when I cannot see."

2 Corinthians 5:7

I have decided that I’m going to try to post scripture daily along with my thoughts, hopefully reaching anyone who wants/needs to hear God’s word.

Why?

Simple. Because God spoke to me and it’s a great way to reach out to others who might not know Christ.

No, no, no. I know what you’re thinking.

Jesus and I did not sit down over pumpkin spice lattes and have a chat about how I need to post his rad quotes on tumblr.

Today in church, God spoke through my preacher and the message could not have been more on point for the things that I’m feeling.

What’s the message you ask?

Our purpose as Christ followers is not to take a back seat to pacify others.

You are going to make people uncomfortable— including yourself.

Our purpose is not to be the most liked person… To have the most “best friends”… Or to reach a certain standard of culturally-accepted beauty. Our purpose isn’t to find a man/woman, pump out a few kids, and grow old together. We aren’t meant to be Bible-thumpers that force people into Christianity and we certainly aren’t meant to criticize other sinners.

Nope. Still with me?

Our purpose as Christians is to advance the kingdom of God by making much of Jesus Christ.

Yep. It’s that simple. It’s not easy, but it’s simple.

So often we get caught up in our day to day activities and put our faith on the back burner. Sure, you might start out with great intentions… But eventually things get in the way. You’re either too busy or too tired (physically or mentally) to sit down and open the Bible to embrace God’s word.

I use the word embrace intentionally.

You can sit down and dedicate all the time in the world to reading the good news… But until you actually put it into play in your life, then they are just words on paper.

Also, just going to church isn’t going to get you into Heaven.

Just keeping it real, y’all.

It is important to go to church, because that is where we convene with other Christ followers and celebrate all that He has done in our life. It’s also a place of support and comfort in trying times.

It helps me to think of a football game. Going to church is the huddle, where we learn and formulate the game plan. But the moment you step out those doors is when the game is on the line. Do huddles and game plans win games? No. The actual plays on the field do.

Truly embracing God’s word and His purpose for you means putting your knowledge and faith into play to make a difference.

In order to make a difference in this world, we need to pray with the 3 Ps:

Passion
Persistence
Patience

Praying passionately means to pray with purpose. It’s more than just “hey God. Thanks for all the good stuff. Can you please give me that promotion I’ve been wanting? K. Thanks.” Praying with purpose means to pray that God will bless you in ways that will not just benefit you— but that will allow you to BE a blessing to someone else.

We must be persistent in our prayers. They won’t happen overnight. If we truly want/need to see a difference, then we must go to God in prayer consistently. It’s not easy, but we must be patient. Life stories of even the most dedicated Christ followers in the Bible went through many trials and tribulations. Yet many stayed steadfast in their faith and even in the bad times praised God.

We weren’t put on this earth to be blessed; we were made in His image so that we could be blessings to others and spread the good news.

If you are living a life of servitude for Jesus Christ then your purpose should be to advance the kingdom of God by making much of Him. How do we advance it?

Get uncomfortable.

Lean on your faith. Let it guide you rather than worldly influences. Give God control and walk by faith; even though you can’t see where you’re headed, He does.

It’s also imperative that you stand up for what you believe in. I believe that our world is currently engaged in spiritual warfare. Fellow Christians are being persecuted and ridiculed for their beliefs. We mustn’t conform to what the world thinks we should, no matter how rough the waters get. Jesus died for you. The least we can stand up for Him. Those who dislike your beliefs and values will come at you with all kinds of nastiness. You will truly figure out who your real friends are. But just stay strong in your faith and let God do the rest. Read in the book of Nehemiah for some awesome examples of what God does to those who want to stir up trouble in the unity of God’s people. Do not be afraid.

Life is hard. Much too hard to go at it alone. I mean, there are all kinds of pressures put on us. School, work, relationships with bfs/gfs, friendships, money issues, societal views, illness, etc. There is a ton to stress about these days. Sometimes the pressure can be too much to handle alone.

Good thing you aren’t alone. God is always with you, whether or not you realize it. He is there to guide you and relieve you of your burdens, even though you can’t see Him. Have faith.

He loves YOU so much that He gave His only son, only to have Him to die for you. Jesus Christ died for you so that you could live life and be freed from the debt of sin.

So many girls want a guy to save them— not even realizing that a man DID save you, 2000 years ago on the cross.

I’ll leave you with this last little tidbit that is bouncing around in my noggin:

I aim to have the type of faith in Jesus Christ that He, Himself had in me when He was left having on a cross.

Most people will scroll by this post. It is uncomfortable and maybe even a bit preachy. Sorry y’all.

If I’m being honest, it’s even a little uncomfortable for me. I’ve never been one to speak out. My family and I were not church-goers for most of my life. But I have been blessed with a church family that has supported me and my walk with Jesus. I was Baptized a year ago and have remained active in the church. However, unfortunately worldly influences have creeped back into my line of vision, impeding me from keeping my eyes on my purpose in this life. I’m attempting to reprioritize and be the person God wants me to be.

This is just me taking His prompting and seeing where it leads. I hope some of this spoke to someone or made you think.

Have a wonderful Monday, y’all!

Keep your faith and germ-x handy!

Yeah.

‎”THROUGH A RAPIST’S EYES” (PLS TAKE TIME TO READ THIS. it may save a life.) Reblog this!

  
It seems that alot of attackers use some tactic to get away with violence. Not many people know how to take care of themselves when faced with such a
situation. Everyone should read this especially each n every girl in this world. THOUGHT THIS WAS GOOD INFO TO PASS ALONG…

FYI - Through a rapist’s eyes! A group of rapists and date rapists in prison were interviewed on what they look for in a potential victim and here are some interesting facts:



1] The first thing men look for in a potential victim is hairstyle.
They are most likely to go after a woman with a ponytail, bun! , braid, or other hairstyle that can easily be grabbed. They are also likely to go after a woman with long hair. Women with short hair are not common targets.

2] The second thing men look for is clothing. They will look for women who’s clothing is easy to remove quickly. Many of them carry scissors around to cut clothing.

3] They also look for women using their cell phone, searching through their purse or doing other activities while walking because they are off guard and can be easily overpowered.

4] The number one place women are abducted from / attacked at is grocery store parking lots.

5] Number two is office parking lots/garages.

6] Number three is public restrooms.

7] The thing about these men is that they are looking to grab a woman and quickly move her to a second location where they don’t have to worry about getting caught.

8] If you put up any kind of a fight at all, they get discouraged because it only takes a minute or two for them to realize that going after you isn’t worth it because it will be time-consuming.

9] These men said they would not pick on women who have umbrellas,or other similar objects that can be used from a distance, in their hands.

10] Keys are not a deterrent because you have to get really close to the attacker to use them as a weapon. So, the idea is to convince these guys you’re not worth it.

———————————————————————————————————————————-

POINTS THAT WE SHOULD REMEMBER:


1] If someone is following behind you on a street or in a garage or with you in an elevator or stairwell, look them in the face and ask them a question, like what time is it, or make general small talk:
can’t believe it is so cold out here, we’re in for a bad winter. Now that you’ve seen their faces and could identify them in a line- up, you lose appeal as a target.

 
2] If someone is coming toward you, hold out your hands in front of you and yell Stop or Stay back! Most of the rapists this man talked to said they’d leave a woman alone if she yelled or showed that she would 
not be afraid to fight back. Again, they are looking for an EASY target.

3] If you carry pepper spray (this instructor was a huge advocate of it and carries it with him wherever he goes,) yelling I HAVE PEPPER SPRAY and holding it out will be a deterrent.

4] If someone grabs you, you can’t beat them with strength but you can do it by outsmarting them. If you are grabbed around the waist from behind, pinch the attacker either under the arm between the elbow and
armpit or in the upper inner thigh - HARD. One woman in a class this guy taught told him she used the underarm pinch on a guy who was trying to date rape her and was so upset she broke through the skin and tore out muscle strands the guy needed stitches. Try pinching yourself in those places as hard as you can stand it; it really hurts.

5] After the initial hit, always go for the groin. I know from a particularly unfortunate experience that if you slap a guy’s parts it is extremely painful. You might think that you’ll anger the guy and make him want to hurt you more, but the thing these rapists told our
instructor is that they want a woman who will not cause him a lot of trouble. Start causing trouble, and he’s out of there.

6] When the guy puts his hands up to you, grab his first two fingers and bend them back as far as possible with as much pressure pushing down on them as possible. The instructor did it to me without using
much pressure, and I ended up on my knees and both knuckles cracked audibly.

7] Of course the things we always hear still apply. Always be aware of your surroundings, take someone with you if you can and if you see any odd behavior, don’t dismiss it, go with your instincts. You may feel
little silly at the time, but you’d feel much worse if the guy really was trouble.

——————————————————————————————————————————-

FINALLY, PLEASE REMEMBER THESE AS WELL ….

I know you are smart enough to know these pointers but there will be some, where you will go “hmm I must remember that” After reading forward it to someone you care about, never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in.


1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do: The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do it.

2. Learned this from a tourist guide to New Orleans : if a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you…. chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or
purse than you and he will go for the wallet/purse. RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!

3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car: Kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won’t see you but everybody else will. This has saved lives.

4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping,eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc. DON’T DO THIS! The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side,put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU CLOSE the DOORS , LEAVE.
 

5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:
a. Be aware: look around your car as someone may be
hiding at the passenger side , peek into your car, inside the passenger side floor, and in the back seat. ( DO THIS TOO BEFORE RIDING A TAXI CAB) .
b. If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.
c. Look at the car parked on the driver’s side of your vehicle, and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)
 

6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. (Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot).

7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN!

8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP IT! It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked “for help” into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.
  

Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it and it’s better safe than sorry.

DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT NOT REBLOGGING THIS! IT COULD ACTUALLY SAVE A LIFE.

Reblog this. Only the picture will appear on your blog.

Will never not reblog this. Saving this forever. There were so many things on here that are lincredibly useful. It doesn’t matter if it doesn’t match your theme!! Is that worth not saving someone’s life?? This is amazing.
