Promise. Something so simple, but can mean the world. We live in a world where people make and break promises effortlessly, and it slowly tears us apart. As Christians we have the blessed reassurance that God's promises hold true till the very end. So, take to heart what God has promised His children and truly believe it.

It's one of the greatest feelings in the world to know that God's got us, no matter how many times we fail.

1. He will fight for you

Life has a great knack for throwing lots of trials our way, and when we try to fight the battle through our own strength we fail. We need to remind our selves that no matter how hard we try, we will never win. We need to surrender all our problems to God, the ultimate conqueror of sin.

2. He gives strength to the weak and powerless

We as humans are weak, and we so easily forget that. We need to learn to humble ourselves and let God give us the strength we need when we are week.

3. He will help you

"He's Got the Whole World in His Hand" is not just a song to be sung in Sunday School. Down to the root it is filled with great biblical truth. God's got the whole world in his hand, which includes you. He will give you the strength and help you need to carry on.

4. His love for us is unshakable

We sing different variations of "His love never fails." All the time: in the car, in the shower, at youth group, and on Sundays during church. So, why don't we ever seem to really believe it? God loves us so much he sent His son to die for us. Why would he turn his back on His beloved if the love he has for us was so unsure.

5. The enemy will not prevail against us


We are children of God with an inheritance to rise up against the enemy and rebuke it in the name of God. Never do so in anger however with a spirit of condemnation for then you are no longer doing it for God, but for the flesh. Make sure your spirit is right, and let God speak through you.

6. He is faithful and just to forgive us

Through the sacrifice of His son we are given eternal life, free of sin. We need only ask for forgiveness and for Jesus to come into our hearts. Ask this of the Lord in full belief and trust and he will be faithful to forgive.

7. The Lord guides us and will never leave us

Our God is an almighty and knowing God. He knows what is to come before it happens. If you follow the Lord with all of your heart, mind, and soul he will guide you and protect you.

8. He has made plans to prosper us, give us a hope and a future

He knew you before you were born, he created you special and unique, and he loves you relentlessly. And with this he has made great plans for you. The life that we are called to live isn't always easy, but take heart in this our riches are stored in heaven!

9. He promises us eternal life

The price of our sins is high, death. God loves us so much that He sent his one and only son to die a sinners death, suffer in hell, and rise again victorious over death. Eternal life with God in paradise. Friends it doesn't get any better than this.

10. He will answer all of our prayers

The Lord is faithful and just to answer our prayers, but we need to truly believe and trust in Him. Otherwise they are just words spoken into to the air.

11. He is with us in our darkest times

We live in a cursed, and therefore imperfect world where sin runs rampant. As a child of God we have nothing to fear because he is with us through our darkest times. Sometimes he will be beside us and other times he will be carrying us, but through it all He will always be there.

12. He will give us the desires of our heart

Love the Lord and he will give what you ask of him. Like when a child innocently and spontaneously tells his parents that he loves them. God is our father who loves when we pour out our love for him.

13. All things work together for good

No matter what life throws at us God loves us, and all things will work together for good. However, don't forget the last part "of those who love Him." We must love the Lord with everything that we have.

14. He gives us peace

When chaos stirs in our soul we need the peace of God that surpasses all understanding. If we make our requests known to God he will protect us and calm the storm.

15. He will provide for us

Seek God always. No matter what. The things of this world are just things, they hold no meaning. Our riches in heaven are eternal.

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.
263368

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

To The Christian Girl Against Feminism, Religion Isn't An Excuse Not To Fight For Equality

Religion is not an excuse to not fight for feminism.

82

When I first read the article "I'm A Christian Girl And I'm Not A Feminist..." I thought it had to be a joke. Unfortunately, it was a sad reality.

I am a privileged white female. I came from a middle-class family with a law-enforcement father. I still am smart enough to realize we NEED intersectional, no strings attached, unconditional feminism. Anyone who disagrees is just wrong. In this case, the author is trying to base her outdated sexist beliefs on the Bible, and I am appalled.

At first, I thought it was a joke, I genuinely read the title out loud to my father and even he said it had to be a man pretending to be a woman. As I read the article I realized that sadly this is a girl who has had religion corrupt her life.

Religion can be a beautiful thing, it can change lives and give people hope that they need. I have heard countless stories about how finding a god has made people better, and that is incredible. However, using religion to say women don't deserve the same as men is absolutely absurd.

Part of me wants to scream in her face that she can't be ok with being a victim, another part of me wants to throw my hands up and give up on her and like-minded individuals. However, in a time like ours where women are coming so close to being equals, I can't sit down or act irrationally.

So here are the facts:

1. Women who work fulltime only make 77% of men's salaries on average. African American women only make 64 cents per dollar and Latina women only make 56 cents per dollar. Imagine being just as capable and trained just as well but a guy makes more money than you because he has a penis.

2. One in three women around the globe has experienced sexual violence. ONE IN EVERY THREE. YOU'RE SURROUNDED BY SURVIVORS. If women were considered equals that would not be the case.

3. Only 24% of high-level management positions are held by women. That's worldwide. 195 countries. Let that sink in. This isn't because women aren't smart either, 60% of all United States college degrees are awarded to women.

4. Women are not allowed to vote in many places, like Saudi Arabia or the Vatican. Imagine not having the right to vote! YOU GET NO SAY IN ANYTHING.

You can thank women for your right to work, vote, get an education, practice a religion that you chose, a range of professions, windshield wipers, bras, dishwashers, diapers, need I go on?

Women are strong as hell and your misinterpretation of an outdated book does not dimish all of the amazing things women have accomplished and will continue to accomplish.

To quote one bad bitch, "Power's not given to you. You have to take it." — Beyoncé Knowles Carter.

Now ladies let's get into our feminist formation and fight for our rights!
