FAITH IS TAKING THE FIRST STEP, EVEN WHEN YOU DON’T SEE THE WHOLE STAIRCASE. -MLK
MLK was someone who lead with his heart and took the road less traveled. He made it known to the world that he had a dream and he wouldn’t stop following that dream until it became a reality.
Above all, MLK used his faith to guide him through some of the most difficult times he had faced. He didn’t know who would follow him and who would betray him. He didn’t know his ultimate fate. And at times he may not have known exactly what he was doing. But all of that seemed irrelevant in his fight for the freedom of his people.
When we look at our own life, it is easy for us to want to give up when we don’t see immediate results. But where would our nation be if MLK gave up the first time he was turned down? We must remember his reverence and perseverance even in the most trying of times.
As thinkers, dreamers, and doers, we also don’t know where our fate will take us. But Martin Luther King Jr. is a reminder to have faith in our dreams and they will exceed your expectations.
