Martin Luther King Jr : A man of Faith and Empowerment with an activated dream

We celebrated Martin Luther King’s birthday and there are many activities planned for this time including a full range of movies, specials and more. This was a man of Faith and Empowerment with an activated dream. There may not be women’s empowerment without people empowerment or life empowerment. And Martin helped to make this possible. It wasn’t just about the black/negro man but people of all colors. It was about equality.

Here’s a quote that is included in my favorites.

Faith is taking the first step, even when you don’t see the whole staircase. Martin Luther King Jr.

I’m also reminded of a verse in the Bible. Faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen.

When I think of Martin I think of vision, purpose, passion, tenacity, Empowerment, Faith with works, Dreaming with action,Love,Truth,Peace, Hope,Sacrifice, self-less giving, family man, husband, A black man, and more!

I’m know Martin had great hopes and displayed much evidence in his Faith Walk and Talk.

Can you imagine having Faith followed by works even in the midst of turmoil, racism, killings, being jailed?

Faith while watching your friends and family live in fear for their lives?

Faith even though you knew that your life was in jeopardy everyday?

Faith to keep moving and taking action regardless of circumstance?

Faith even though at times your own immediate family didn’t understand you.

What fueled this Faith? His burning desire. His Dream.

Martin didn’t only have a dream. He took action. Action that risked his life and caused him to be ostracized.

Thanks for taking the first step and being committed to self-less giving.

What is your dream? Have Faith and take action. Targeted action. You don’t have to see the staircase. Make the first step. Step out in Faith!

Never stop dreaming.
