No Justice! No Peace!

We are the only ones not getting any peace from this!

I want to start by saying that I’m against peaceful and violent forms of protest. I started this blog in February as a way to get my issues out. It turned into a way to bring healing and resources to black people (and anyone else in need). I’m trying to think of ways to help my people that will actually bring some sort of change. I don’t want to be all talk, but my personal life is pretty chaotic right now and I can barely catch my breath from that. I can’t move around like I want and I’m tired of trying to get those that can, to listen.

Please don’t let the media fool you! I know there are people all around the world that read this, all protestors aren’t violent. Everyone rioting and looting aren’t black. There are some people who are inciting violence with no intention of helping black people or George Floyd, get justice. These people aren’t apart of the Black Lives Matter Movement, never have been and never will be.

The only thing that I know to be tried and true is calling on the name of Jesus. I know people are going to start judging this before they read it, but please just read. Warning: This section will be heavily about God! Anyone that knows anything about God knows that he has the power to step into any situation and change it immediately. We also know that God doesn’t take away free will. He will not force you to believe if you don’t want to (which is why I never force a narrative on anyone). I need everyone to pray, NOW!

The only ones that have no peace over this situation are honestly black people and allies. The rich and powerful aren’t losing any sleep. Those in the position of power to make/change laws are sleeping peacefully in their beds. If you believe in the power of God I need you to pray these words:

I’m asking God for peace and covering for my people. Most importantly for those personally affected by police brutality and racism. I pray that anyone holding a seat in ANY office will have NO SLEEP until we get the justice we deserve. I pray that the judge, jury, and lawyers involved in the case against Derek Chauvin will all work together to convict this man of 1st degree murder. From the president on down, nothing will go right for you until you start doing what’s right for black people. Lord God if they aren’t going to use their power wisely, move them and replace them with someone who will. The blood of Jesus is covering our lives! The first shall be last and the last shall be first. I pray that the police men and women reacting violently to those hurting, will turn on themselves. Like the Philistines Lord I pray that the battle will already be won and we won’t even have to fight. Last but not least, God I pray that even their spouses and children will turn on them until they start doing right by the children on God. In the name of Jesus Amen!

1 Samuel 14:20
Then Saul and all his men assembled and went to the battle. They found the Philistines in total confusion, striking each other with their swords.

I’m tired y’all! This hurts so bad and it’s all I’ve been thinking about.
