On a day like today..
Today we honor the life of a man who showed the world the power of believing in a dream. Martin Luther King was focused and steadfast. He did not listen to those who would suggest one life can't make a difference. I can't even imagine the personal weight he felt to follow through on his calling. However, on a day like today, I am reminded that every believer has received a calling as well.
"You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth" Acts 1:8 (NIV).
Wherever you live on this planet God has plans for you to be a carrier of Hope. I know how easy it is to become overwhelmed by the weight of this calling. I have attached the lyrics and link to a song by Songwriters: Ian Bruce Mcintosh & Jenn Louise Johnson that has been speaking to me these days. Keep looking to Jesus- you are making a difference!
God, I look to You, I won't be overwhelmed Give me vision to see things like You do God I look to You, You're where my help comes from Give me wisdom, You know just what to do
I will love You, Lord, my strength Yes, I will love You, Lord, my shield And, I will love You, Lord, my rock forever All my days I will love You, God
Hallelujah, our God reigns Hallelujah, our God reigns Hallelujah, our God reigns Forever, all my days, Hallelujah
