I wish I could calm the fears of people’s hearts. I do know the One who can. If they’d just let Him. ♥️
When you focus on the good, the good gets better. 💫 So grateful for all the good in my life...and all the good things coming soon hehe @albionfit
He specifically wanted people to see the love for education and his people in his eyes. He also said I’m the next Spike Lee. That’s a hard name to live up to..I think I’ll just try to be Journey 😂. #ProjectYoungMelaninSoulz

#tbt Just because I miss these goons and I’ll be seeing them this weekend — for the first time in two months. Usually I can go months without seeing my parents and family and feel fine because I’m use to being on my own and they seem to understand my independence. Last few weeks have left me feeling drained out and sometimes not present because of how stressed out I am that I wish I could call my dad to come pick me from Chicago and take me back to my childhood home. Sitting in the dining room room while my mom shows me her new bargain buys and listening to my dad tell his teenage disco night stories. Sounds like what I need right about now. I guess I never really knew how much I appreciated and love my parents until I got into my mid-twenties. And I’m also not afraid to admit that I’m not okay and that I need these two like I did before I moved out on my own to the city almost 4 years ago. Even if it’s just for the weekend. Love you, Ma and Pa.
The sound of the ocean has become my daily soundtrack.
"..Любовью чужой горят города,
Извилистый путь затянулся петлей.
Когда все дороги ведут в никуда,
Настала пора возвращаться домой.."
It’s hard to put into words what I’ve experienced on this trip. To experience such intense highs but also extreme lows in a short period of time really messes with your heart.
On the one hand, the people here are so beautiful. Their joy despite their extreme lack is unreal, and having the privilege to serve them is incredible. Every time I come I am convicted by the incredible faith of the believers here.
But on the other hand you witness 10 people living in a 10x10 room with one bed, no electricity, and no plumbing. You see scenes like this one: people living in a huge garbage dumb salvaging trash to survive. You see mothers barely scraping by because so many fathers gave up on their families and left.
It’s hard to reconcile how both can exist simultaneously, but I know that I serve a great God that doesn’t waste pain, has a great plan for all people, and loves each of us unconditionally. He loves the moms who fight for their families just as he loves the fathers who leave them. He loves the corrupt government officials who allow people to live in a dump just like He loves the wonderful people who live there. God is love.
So as long as I have breath, I will share His love with everyone I encounter. I will fight for justice globally. I will commit to praying for and supporting the people in the trenches fighting for the lives of the afflicted. I will do my best to be a part of the change I want to see in the world. I will.
Don’t get so caught up in learning and seeing that you don’t end up doing. Knowledge is great, but Love is better. Take those good intentions that you have and make some moves. Life is short - be the difference.
Kesabaran yg membuahkan hasil 😏.
Mesti nunggu biar ga ada orang buat foto di sini 😂😂😂.
