I've been reading the Martin Luther King's letter from Birmingham jail for the course on Early Christianity.
The exercise was to compare Paul's letters from the 1st century with that of MLK in the 20th.
But so many profound statements were made during MLK's letter that I found myself crying many times before I finished my reading, which took me two days to complete.
I have been feeling in my heart that God has more in store for me--that he made me capable of more than what I've done thus far. I have been so unsettled recently with just the need to make something happen.
So coming across this quote of an older black women during a very dark period of civil unrest in the south, "My feets is tired, but my soul is at rest." I was instantly inspired.
My God! I want to feel that. I want my soul to be at rest with the peace of knowing that I worked tirelessly for the Lord.
St. Catherine of Sienna said, "We we become who were are called to be, we will set the world ABLAZE!"
I've written it before, but I write it again!
