May you enjoy time with family, friends and food! (Yes food!)
And I pray pray pray that, if you have not already done so, you would accept Jesus Christ into your life on this day as your Lord and Saviour. He was crucified on Friday but was raised today for you and I, to save us from sin and death and give us a way to eternal life with Him! With His death and burial, our sin also died and was buried with Him! We are no longer bound by the chains of our sin. Through Him we are be free to live a life of happiness and love and forgiveness. Wouldn’t you love to never be scared/worried/unhappy again about this life because it is only temporary and you can turn to your God for reassurance and comfort? You can know that something so much better is on its way!It’s the best feeling! Trust me, because I’ve been on the other side of this whole religion thing too, where I didn’t know the extent to which I could be loved by someone or forgiven by someone. His love never fails. His mercies and grace are endless for me.
Whether you enjoy the Easter eggs, the chocolate bunnies, your time with family or friends, or praising the Lord with all your heart for His goodness on this day, I hope you have a wonderful day!! I love you all sweet friends and happy Easter!
because people are still asking that question
because women are payed less than men in approximately 99% of professions
because chris brown can still have a career after assaulting rihanna but miley cyrus takes her clothes off and there’s a huge scandal
because of this:
because currently it is estimated ten million more girls are out of education than boys (x)
because we’re expected to be mature but hairless like a child, in control but not bossy, sexy but not slutty and definitely not a prude, intelligent but not opinionated, independent but reliant on men, natural but look like the girl in the magazine etc etc
because being called a girl, a pussy or a bitch is an insult
because when i told my mum i refused to get anything less than a’s in my exams she told me it wasn’t ladylike to be so cocky
because my brother and 90% of my male friends think girls who wear revealing clothing are asking for rape
because every person who identifies as female should be allowed to choose if they want to get married, have kids, have a career, go to uni etc etc without expectations
because tampons and sanitary pads are stupidly expensive
because some people reading this will have flinched at the fact i just said ‘tampon’
because there are men out there whose job it is to make young girls feel like absolute shit about themselves just so they can sell the next best beauty product
because female masturbation isn’t considered normal whilst men can talk about their own penises for hours on end
because feminists are still seen as crazy lesbians who dont shave and some still feel like they have to defend themselves by claiming theyre not any of those things when in fact if i want to be a passionate lady who likes other ladies and cant be bothered to shave my legs every twenty minutes then thats my choice and if i want to be someone who wears make up and shaves and goes out partying then thats my choice and if i want to be a combination of the two or anything in between then thats. my. choice.
because i believe anyone who identifies as female is fucking badass and deserves the same rights as every privileged stuck up old white man sitting around and making laws about our bodies
because how can you not be
Yesterday my Savior died for me;
Tomorrow my Savior sets me free.
listens to me
sticks with me
died for me
and I have no idea why,
because I’m a sinner
but that tells you something about my God now doesn’t it?
