Wise Words

I Have a Dream

…but there is something that I must say to my people, who stand on the warm threshold which leads into the palace of justice. In the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred. We must forever conduct our struggle on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence. Again and again, we must rise to the majestic heights of meeting physical force with soul force.

The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to a distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers, as evidenced by their presence here today, have come to realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny. And they have come to realize that their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedom.

We cannot walk alone.

And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead.

We cannot turn back…

Just in Case…

Have you ever forgotten that God can do anything but fail? I have. How so? Well, when I complained about a situation or told everyone about my problems/frustrations before conversing with him… I forgot. God wants to be the first to know everything concerning us. I understand how easy it is to pick up the phone to call our spouse or dearest friend because we are so upset at that moment. Ignoring the real problem solver all the while. He already has the 411 before it is manifested naturally. Yet, he wants to hear about it from us.
There is nothing wrong with venting our frustrations to those close around us, but we must remain cognizant of our redeemer. I’m learning the freedom of truly releasing everything to him in our chats. I love the feeling of having a clear heart and knowing that all is well. God has my back. There is no PowerPoint presentation on steps to conversing with him. All you need to do is talk to him from your heart; including those secret hurts and pains you keep bottled up inside. Keep him first through prayer and reading the word. He is waiting on you.

” Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” (NLT, Matthew 11:28)

Thank you for the reminder, Marion Weston.
