What GOD is like and How This Had An Effect on Me
He (GOD) knows things that we do not and cannot ever know. It is said that God is so powerful that he knows everything. Many people say that God has a plan for all of us. Not everyone believes in God and I understand that. But for those of you that believe in Him and trust Him, He is always there for you. God always helps us out whenever we ask Him. He may not answer us at that moment but eventually God gives us a reply. God shows us the way to what we are looking for. I have been raised as a Christian and there is a God out there. Someone out there is looking after you and watching over you even if you don’t really believe it or follow the Bible.
Did GOD enable this writer to develop a sort of fascination and admiration for Jennifer Lawrence? That's a likely and accurate assumption. This writer remembers one night where he was so overcome with emotion that he needed help to try and get rid of his anger and resentment. Shortly after praying to GOD, I could really feel as if that barrier had been lifted. I had been struggling for the longest time because I had felt that much of the Southern United States was ignorant, backward, and racist. While it is true that the Southern states were part of the Confederacy and really made lots of money because of the institution of slavery, to assume that all Southerners were associated with racism is a big generalization. My story is an example that GOD has the power to comfort and heal you if you have faith in HIM.

However, Lawrence stirred up controversy during an interview for the December 2015 edition of Vogue Magazine. The subject of Kim Davis was brought up at the time of the interview.

Lawrence who became noticeably upset during the interview saying that Davis made her become embarrassed that she is from Kentucky. Lawrence also questioned whether the United States has even come as far as it has. Lawrence said: “I was raised a Republican, but I just can’t imagine supporting a party that doesn’t support women’s basic rights. It’s 2015 and gay people can get married and we think that we’ve come so far, so, yay! But have we? I don’t want to stay quiet about that stuff,” (Judge 2015). Lawrence is the highest paid actress in Hollywood and is very talented but you have to admire the fact that she is a big supporter of women’s rights.
