Don’t Underestimate Your Influence In the Lives Of Others. Step Forward To Help Others As God Leads You!
This morning, I learned of the pivotal role the gospel singer Mahalia Jackson played in encouraging Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to give his earth-moving “I Have A Dream” speech on Aug. 28, 1963. Dr. King had prepared a different speech for that event, as his advisors had told him not to make reference to a “dream” in his speech.
But just before Dr. King started speaking, Ms. Mahalia Jackson shouted: “Tell them about the dream, Martin!”. Encouraged, Dr. King gave his powerful, inspirational and life changing “I Have A Dream” speech impromptu. Fascinated by this discovery, I read more on the topic, and I further discovered just how much Mahalia Jackson had encouraged Dr. King and lifted him up during their years of friendship and joint efforts, as they both continually aspired for the dreams that God had placed inside of them.
This discovery reminded me of something extremely encouraging I recently read:
“Never underestimate your influence in the lives of others. Never think you’re not needed or that what you have to say doesn’t matter. It is all part of God’s plan to help us all reach our purpose in life.” ~ Dr Kimberly D. Moore
Don’t underestimate the power and reach of your influence in the lives of others.
Don’t underestimate the power of an encouraging word or action in the lives of others.
Don’t underestimate what God can say and do through you as you encourage others and lift them up!
We all have our parts to play in fulfilling our purpose and in helping others fulfill their purpose as well. Our job is to continually seek God first in all things, to keep trusting God, and to be willing and obedient to God when we know He is prompting us to say or do something. May we all continually hear God’s voice, and May God strengthen you as you seek to do his will! And as always, Do Your Part and God Will Do The Rest!
