Some people observed, while others celebrated the memory and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr this week in the United States. I decided to listen to his speech “I Have Been to the Mountain Top.” This was the last speech he gave.
This speech reminded me of what a great preacher he was. He talked about how there was trouble in the land and the world was messed up. Funny how we think the same thing about today. He reminded his crowd that “only when it is dark enough can you see the stars.” This is a good reminder for us city dwellers who seldom see the stars at night.
But it is only in those times of trouble do we appreciate those moments of peace. The Lord has promised to never forsake us, even though we go through challenges. As long as He is with us, there will be stars in a dark night. Look for the stars.
This is a great speech. I hope you find many treasures there.
