Martin Luther King Jr.

As a young girl I remember reading about him in books and watching documentries on his life. When I think of him, I think of someone that has courage, faith and dreams. I know it has been over 43 years since his death, but I pray and hope that we will never forget him and all that he accomplish. I admire him and thankful for what he did for Blacks freedom and standing up against injustices. In the memory of Martin Luther King Jr. I have decide to post his quotes. Another thing I love about Dr. King is that his words were so powerful and meaningful.

“There are more Negroes in jail with me than there are on the voting rolls.”

“Throughout the struggle for racial justice I have constantly asked God to remove all bitterness from my heart and to give me the strength and courage to face any disaster that came my way.”

“Racism is a sickness unto death.”

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

“We are entering deeper nights of social disruption in our country, we have the resources to solve our problem. But the question is, do we have the will?”

“We cannot be satisfied as long as the Negro’s basic mobility is from a smaller ghetto to a larger one.”

“Some of us bear the burden of trying to save the soul of America.”

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”

“When evil men plot, good men must plan. When evil men burn and bomb, good men must build and bind. When evil men shout ugly words of hatred, good men must commit themselves to the glories of love.”

“Non-violence is a powerful and just weapon. It is a weapon unique in history, which cuts without wounding, and ennobles the man who wields it. It is a sword that heals.”

“We have allowed our civilization to outrun our culture, and so we are in danger now of ending up with guided missiles in the hands of misguided men.”

“I speak out against this [Vietnam] war not in anger, but with sorrow in my heart and, above all, a passionate desire to see our beloved country stand as a moral example to the world.”


“There is nothing more tragic than to find an individual bogged down in the length of life, devoid of depth.”

“When the history books are written in future generations, the historians will have to pause and say, ‘There lived a great people, a black people, who injected new meaning and dignity into the veins of civilization."

"A right delayed is a right denied."

"An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity."


"Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can't ride you unless your back is bent."

Godly Women From the Past (Gladys Aylward Part 2)

Quotes from Gladys Aylward
"I wasn't God's first choice for what I've done for China…I don't know who it was…It must have been a man…a well-educated man. I don't know what happened. Perhaps he died. Perhaps he wasn't willing…and God looked down…and saw Gladys Aylward…And God said - "Well, she's willing."
“If God has called you to China or any other place and you are sure in your own heart, let nothing deter you….Remember, it is God who has called you and it is the same as when He
called Moses or Samuel.”

"My heart is full of praise that one so insignificant, uneducated, and ordinary in every way could be used to His glory for the blessing of His people in poor persecuted China."

Malawi Mission Trip 2016

Its been two weeks since I have been back in America after being in Africa. I was able to go on a mission trip to Malawi. Since being back, I am still speechless. I can't find the words to explain my experience of being in Africa. The land is beautiful. The people are beautiful. The food is amazing. Some of the things I can take away from being in Malawi:

1) To be grateful. There were days that we went without running water (could not take showers). I thought to myself that the Malawi people go through this all the time and I still see them praising God. 2) To Pray, Worship and Rejoice always. I need to make up my mind daily to not let the world fill me up. I saw people walking for hours to get to church and while in church service praising God. I need to daily sit at the Lords feet and be with Him praying.  3) I can live without social media. During the trip we did not have much internet and we were okay. Since being home, I have found myself sitting in silence and meditating on …

Journal Entry #14 - Free me up, from the Fear of Rejection

Abba I pray for peace in my heart and mind. I no longer want to believe in the lies that I am worthless, ugly, and slow. I need (want) you to remind me of who I am in you. When I look at my past I see a girl that has been hurt. A girl that was lonely and invisible. Show me Your love for me. Show me that I belong to you

The pain from being rejected still haunts me. My mind is filled with memories of being rejected. There were many times I was called ugly, monkey, slow, made fun of because of my weight and height, I notice that sometimes I would isolate myself from others because I was afraid of being rejected by my peers. What others thought of me, consumed me. I placed more value on what others have said and thought about me then what God says about me, as his child. The Lord has shown me His love and everyday I am learning to lay down the fear of rejection.
