Martin Luther King and Jesus ~Two Men in Their Thirties ~ NOW There Is A DREAM
He Had a Dream.
Martin Luther King was fatally shot as he stood on the balcony outside his second-story room at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis Tennessee. He had become increasingly concerned with the problem of economic inequality in the world. He bonded people together for good and He died for his actions and attempts at the age of 39.
Do what is right and good in the Lord’s sight, so that it may go well with you and you may go in and take over the good land the Lord promises on oath to your ancestors.
I Have a Dream Speech
He Is the Dream
Jesus also bonded people together for good, preaching the word and promise of His Father in heaven. He was put to death in His third decade of life, paying the price for all of our sins, mighty heavy, such a sacrifice, and so we are eternally blessed by His cross. No matter the circumstance you can go to the cross and lay your burdens down. Christ died for you and with this unconditional act He gave the gift of His unfailing love. His dream is that you would come to know Him, ask His forgiveness and walk with Him. Lead others towards His promise and trust in His grace and mercy. The road may be long and winding but always remember you will not walk alone.
1 Peter 5:10-11
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered for a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To Him be the power for ever and ever.
Two Men in Their Thirties
Martin Luther King was the voice of the people, He cried out for what was right.
Jesus is the Savior of the people He paid it all for all of us.
Good examples have come before us, and yet we falter in our ability to brave the storms and carry the torch for what is right. All day, every day we need to carry the torch and shine the light for what is right honor the sacrifices of those who came before us. Reach out to your brothers and sisters and find the good in each of them. You can be the voice of courage. Do not hide your light under a bushel. Always add fuel to your fire and help to lead this world to the One where they can lay their burdens down. Imagine the strength in numbers.
“Two are better than one because they have a good return, for their labor. If either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But, woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up. Furthermore, if two lie down together keep them warm, but how can one be warm alone? And if one can overpower him who is alone, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not quickly torn apart.”Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, If you have the faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there, ‘and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20
Place A Lantern In Your Heart
Blessings to you as you meet your roads today, even when you find them winding, no worries as long as it leads you back home to HIM. Always dream big, you never know what you can accomplish when you just BELIEVE. Imagine a tiny seed that is fed and watered, when nurtured just right, it grows and flourishes. Eventually, this tiny seed bares fruit for all to share. As the birds sing and welcome Spring, why don't you plant a tiny seed of faith. Just take the things that are holding you down, clear away the dirt, plant that tiny seed where you are, trust in it, and watch it grow. When your fruits come, notice their beauty and share them readily. Stand tall on the highest hill, place a lantern in your heart for all to see and welcome them.
Read His word and He will speak to you, take a moment to go to Him and be fed. His word will feed your hunger and nourish you, you thirst will be quenched.

Be Blessed today and always and Peace in your stages
