Martin Luther King and Jesus ~two Men in Their Thirties ~ Now There Is a Dream
He Had a Dream.
Martin Luther King fatally shot as he stood on the balcony outside his second-story room at the Lorraine Motel in Memphis Tennessee. He had become the voice of concerned with the problem of economic and racial inequality in the world. He bonded people together for good, and He died for his actions of unity, at age Thirty-Nine.
Deuteronomy 6:18 "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 continues to bond people together for good, preaching through His word and promise of glory in heaven. He was put to death in the third decade of His life, paying the price for all of our sins. His sacrifice of the cross, we are blessed. No matter the circumstance you can go to the cross and lay your burdens down.
Christ died for you, and with this final act, He gave the gift of His unfailing love. He dreams that you would come to know Him, ask His forgiveness and walk with Him. Then 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 forever 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 take the torch and shine the light for what is correct 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 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 believe. Imagine a tiny seed that we plant and water, when nurtured just right, it grows and flourishes. This little seed bears fruit for all to share.
As the birds sing and we welcome a new season 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 small seed where you are, trust in it, and watch it grow. When your fruits come, notice their beauty and share them. 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
