Real Estate Conversations with Brenda: For Such a Time as This-Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

For Such a Time as This-Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

For Such a Time as This-Remembering Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

It really amazes me sometimes that when I go back and think of all of the great men and women that have risen in our Great United States to do something life changing that it seems as though God had brought them into existence specifically for that time frame to cause a great change.

The Bible Verse Ester 4:14 says For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”

Esther was afraid to speak up for the Jews (her people), to the King her husband as she may have been killed.  If she did not speak up however, then all of her people would have been killed.  It seemed as though God had placed Esther in the perfect position to help her (and by the same token God's) people.

Now, no matter what your beliefs are, you have to consider that Mr. Martin Luther King Jr. was tailor made for the Civil Rights fight he had on his hands, (For such a Time as This).  I can say, like my pastor said yesterday, I Thank God that I did not have to endure what Mr. King matter the battles he fought, he did so with dignity and non-violence.  But God didn't make me for that purpose...I'm thinking my purpose has more to do with helping folks find home :).  

Anyway, in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday, I watched his I Have a Dream Speech.  I thought it fitting to go back and really listen to what he said.  Of course I cried.  I share it with you today and if you watch it, may you be inspired as well.  (It's long but well worth it).

Brenda there is no doubt in my mind that Dr. King, Jr. was put here on this earth for such a time as the movement he led.  God always sends the perfect person for the job :)

Brenda, I was thinking a great deal about him, Lincoln and President Obama yesterday. I felt like Martin Luther King's spirit was all around. I mentioned on another post, what an honor it is to have the Inauguration on MLK Day!
(I couldn't watch the video, because I KNOW I would cry and I don't want puffy eyes for the rest of the day!)

Loved this and your reference to Esther....I don't think she gets as much attention as some of the others in the Bible.

Hi Brenda, I saw your post a couple of days ago, but didn't get the chance to comment then. WOW! I first heard this Great Speech on TV back in 1963 when the whole nation was watching it in Black and White. He was the right man for the job at the Time, and I am proud to have lived in that era. I had seen him in person a couple of times, but never got close up, while I was attending Dr. King's Alma Mater at Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA back in 1966.
