So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up” (Galatians 6:9, NLT)

Are you praying for something that’s taking longer than you thought or expected? No matter how long you may have been standing on God’s promises, don’t give up! Your season is coming. Your harvest of blessing is on its way. It might be today, it might be tomorrow, it might be next week, next month or next year; but remember, at just the right time, you will experience your breakthrough.

Be encouraged today because God is faithful and His promises are true. Keep standing, keep hoping, keep believing. Keep doing good. Keep declaring the promises of God over your life. Choose to be around people who are going to encourage you and fill your heart and mind with God’s Word. Let a song of praise come out of your mouth. Press on in faith and keep an attitude of victory. Don’t get tired of doing what is right because your harvest of blessing is on the way!

"You are the Truth, always have been, always will be- it’s time that you remember that."

"For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.

So collapse.
Crumble.
This is not your destruction.

This is your birth."

MARCH 23RD BOOST: AMBER ALERT | RELISHA RUDD of WASHINGTON, DC MISSING

Amber Alert still in effect for Relisha Rudd, 8, who is likely with Kahlil Tatum.

WASHINGTON (WJLA) ­ The man police believe is with a missing 8­year­old Washington girl is wanted on murder charges after his wife was found dead this week. The body of 51­year­old Andrea Denise Tatum was discovered at an Oxon Hill Red Roof Inn as Prince George’s County Police searched for Relisha Rudd. Prince George’s County Police announced Friday evening they have an arrest warrant out for 51­year­old Kahlil Malik Tatum in his wife’s murder. The search for Relisha began Thursday with an Amber Alert, saying sheis believed to be with Kahlil Tatum. The search led officers to the Red Roof Inn, where Andrea Tatum was found shot to death. Officers located the white 1976 GMC truck associated with the Amber Alert, but Relisha was not found.

Relisha has been missing since Feb. 26, but her absence wasn’t reported to police until Thursday when a counselor at Payne Elementary School noticed she hadn’t been to class in weeks. Antonio Wheeler, the mother’s fiance, said Relisha’s mother had given Tatum permission to spend time with the girl while the mother was in the hospital, but Tatum never returned the girl. The child’s grandmother, Melissa Young, says Relisha often stayed overnight with Tatum and his family when her mother was out of town. Young says Tatum was supposed to be taking Relisha to school and recalled what happened during last week’s snow day. “He says ’oh since school is closed I am going to keep her for another week.’ I said, ’she has school tomorrow.’”

Relisha is described as a 4-foot tall black female who weighs approximately 70­80 pounds. She has black hair, brown eyes and a medium complexion. In the amber alert, police said they believe Tatum to be armed and dangerous.

“I have no hatred in my heart for you. I do have respect for you, but as long as you are out there running with my granddaughter all of my feelings about you are going to change,” Young says.

“Time is of the essence,” said Derrica Wilson, a former police officer and co­founder of Black and Missing Foundation. In Landover on Friday, Wilson said that one of the problems is that the Amber Alert now has no current vehicle information to go on, as the white truck police thought Tatum was traveling in was found this week – with no sign of the girl.

“They’ve expanded the search to Richmond. At this point, this should be a national search because this child could be anywhere,” said Wilson.

D.C. Mayor Gray says he has been asking several city agencies what happened, assuring, ”They really worked hard to try to address this issue leading up to the circumstances that we have now.” Now the problem is finding her, as Wilson says to keep in mind that Relisha could look very different since her disappearance.

the same thing is happening in india as of LAST YEAR. Native Jarwawa peoples are tracked down like creatures on a safari and are forced to dance for food. x 
fuck you. fuck yourself. fuck your “reverse racism”.

why is the notes on this shit so fucking low, like swear to god some stupid ass tmz shit would be spreading like wildfire but niggas don’t like seeing raw reality.


The truth can no longer be denied when you have to face it. Because, I mean, then you would be expected to address it. And c,mon what can anyone do about the past, right? Hence, the unreasonably low number of notes.

List of Blackshows that would be interesting

jprophyl:

jprophyl:

boygeorgemichaelbluth:

piccolowasablackman:

- A show that takes place during the Harlem Renaissance

- A show that takes place in the south during the great migration or reconstruction era or about Black sharecroppers

- A show about Black LGBTQ WITH ACTUAL Trans* actors (I don’t…

A show about black children in different family environments growing up together and how it affects their perception of the world and life.

A show about a black American woman going to live on a country in Africa and the conflicts and joys it brings

A show about a black man who navigates issues such as colorism misogyny manhood and fatherhood

A show about 3 generations of black women and how the world has changed for black women in that time. Example interracial dating the black community religion and childbearing issues.

A show about a black historian who finds documents and relics about Ancient African civilizations and inventions that rock the History world and challenge the whitewashed narrative as we know it ( maybe that should be a movie?)

A story about a black girl who hates her daily life so much she spends all day blogging on tumblr and the hilarity that ensues. That may already be a show if not I’m making it.

The story of a young teenage black couple fighting poverty and emotional hurdles to raise their children together the right way.

A sci fi story where a black woman is a healer after the tradition of Voodo priestesses called the Healer.

Let’s keep adding to the list

As show about being a black woman with a physical disability; overcoming psychological barriers.
