Don't Wait

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The greatest wealth of the African American church has always been its abiding faith that God will provide, as leaders of the church marched into the deepest pits of injustice- From the New York Times (January 20,2003.) Juan Williams recalls that when Birmingham white ministers asked Martin Luther King Jr. to wait in the face of Bull Connor’s rabid segregationist violence, Dr. King said waiting was impossible. “For years now I have heard the word ‘Wait!’. It rings in the ears of every Negro with piercing familiarity. This ‘wait’ has almost always meant ‘ never’. We must come to see …that justice too long delayed is justice denied.”  Dr. King's words, so powerful in that violent and momentous era, should have no less resonance today as we are faced with compelling issues.

What is the plan Jesus desires for your life? What are your passions? When you pause to reflect upon where it is you feel compelled to take your life, what is the vision that you see? What are the steps that will get you there? It is my fundamental belief and understanding of life that God wants us to journey through life with the answer to these questions. Jesus offers you some time together with him to seek the vision for your life.  Jesus says to each of us this day, concerned with how to order our life, that we might “Come away with Jesus to a deserted place to rest a while” (Mark 6:31) . For if we do, we will hear the voice of God.

Have a great week. Spend some time upon your knees reflecting on your passion and the vision you desire for your life! What is the great picture God has for your life and what steps need to be taken to get you to that destiny.  Do not “wait,” for “wait “ almost always means “never.” Get things in order today.

Still in One Peace,

Pastor David J. Jensen
