Martin Luthor King Jr. Encouraging Quote of the Day – Like Anybody I Would Like To Live A Long Life. Longevity Has Its Place. But I’m Not Concerned About That Now. I Just Want To Do God’s Will. And He’s Allowed Me To Go Up To the Mountain. And I’ve Looked Over. And I’ve Seen the Promised Land

Martin Luthor King Jr. MLK Great Quote Gods Will Over Longevity to the Promised Land

Absolutely awe-inspiring words from someone who walked the walk and carried his cross.

“Like Anybody I Would Like To Live A Long Life. Longevity Has Its Place. But I’m Not Concerned About That Now. I Just Want To Do God’s Will. And He’s Allowed Me To Go Up To the Mountain. And I’ve Looked Over. And I’ve Seen the Promised Land.” Celebrate MLK’s inspiring Spirit of God with this amazing quote.

The pulse of Christ pumped through this man in so many powerful ways. His thinking was profound beyond human understanding. That’s because he yielded his life to the guide of the Holy Spirit, allowing God to speak through him and change the world. This quote gives me shivers.

If you’ve ever seen the last speech that MLK ever gave, the Holy Spirit was literally dripping off this man. According to interviews with a guy who was with MLK the day he was assassinated, he told people that MLK was the giddiest he had ever seen him. In fact he said Martin Luthor King was actually playful. So playful in fact that he started a pillow fight! This was completely unlike MLK, who was usually stoic and serious. He said this was manifest evidence to him that MLK was divinely inspired and knew that it was his last day on Earth. And even in the midst of that impending doom, he had the joy of Christ. A joy only the peace of God brings. This is from first-hand accounts. You can believe whatever you want to believe, but its clear to people who were there that God flowed through Martin Luthor King Jr. in powerful, powerful ways.

Encouraging Quote of the Day – Forgiveness Is the Key That Unlocks the Door of Resentment and the Handcuffs of Hatred. Breaking Chains of Bitterness and Shackles of Selfishness By Corrie Ten Boom (Holocaust Survivor)

First to Apologize is Bravest, First to Forgive is Strongest, First to Forget is Happiest

This sums things up nicely!

Corrie Ten Boom, “Forgiveness is the key that unlocks the door of resentment and the handcuffs of hatred. It is a power that breaks the chains of bitterness and the shackles of selfishness.” (via Pastor Benny Hinn)

That quote is from someone who knows real tragedy unlike anything we can imagine. Yesterday, we got closer to being able to imagine what true evil and true horror is; in stark, terrifying, real terms. Except few of us experienced that pain in a direct, real way, as the people and young children who were viciously murdered in cold blood at an elementary school in Connecticut were strangers to us.

These words from Holocaust survivor Corrie ten Boom is proof positive that strength comes from God and God alone. Even when demonic evil taking place all around you and involves the very people you know and love. Even during those dark hours, Jesus is the answer, and in Him alone is where comfort, grace, mercy, forgiveness, peace and the strength that surpasses all mortal understanding reside.

Here is an amazing real interview with Corrie ten Boom herself, speaking in her own words, on forgiveness and how to overcome hardship and tragedy, from someone who survived a Nazi Concentration Camp and still maintained her faith in Jesus Christ and the love of God that confounds the unbeliever.

Encouraging Quote of the Day – YOU Know What’s Beautiful? Read the First Word Again

Jesus Loves You This Much Cross

Jesus already loved you so much He died for YOU. Never forget that.

“YOU know what’s beautiful? Read the first word again.”

Never forget how much God loves YOU and that God created YOU to be YOU. You are special, and every person in this world is someone whom God would forget the whole world just to save. YOU ARE THAT IMPORTANT.

Looking at yourself through the eyes of Jesus Christ, and through the eyes of how other people see you; is a great way to boost your own self-esteem. Remember that YOU MATTER.

Even when it seems like you don’t, even when you don’t feel like you do, and even when you feel worthless, lonely, or lost… remember that everyone impacts the lives of others, and everyone has SOMEONE who loves them. Someone, somewhere. And even if you didn’t or don’t, GOD LOVES YOU. And ultimately, THAT is ALL that MATTERS.

Billy Graham’s 9/11 September 11th Speech at the Memorial Service are powerful, eternal words; even 11 years later here on September 11th 2012.

Here is the full audio, with the text transcript below. God bless you.

Billy Graham’s remarks given at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., on Friday, September 14, 2001, brought hope and healing to the shocked nation. They still hold power, 11 years later.

We come together today to affirm our conviction that God cares for us, whatever our ethnic, religious or political background may be. The Bible says that He is “the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles.” (1)

No matter how hard we try, words simply cannot express the horror, the shock and the revulsion we all feel over what took place in this nation on Tuesday morning. September 11 will go down in our history as a Day to Remember.

Today we say to those who masterminded this cruel plot, and to those who carried it out, that the spirit of this nation will not be defeated by their twisted and diabolical schemes. Some day those responsible will be brought to justice.

Here is a partial video.

But today we come together in this service to confess our need of God. We’ve always needed God from the very beginning of this nation. But today we need Him especially. We’re involved in a new kind of warfare. And we need the help of the Spirit of God. Read the rest of this entry »

Remember that joy and happiness come from within. No one can take that from you. The Bible says to be joyful because of the victory that Christ has given you over death and the grave. No matter what happens in your life, you ultimately have the victory. Take control of your emotions and do not let your mind be miserable no matter the situation. Instead rejoice!
