Being an Overcomer

Overcoming continues even after we are no longer physically among the living. It is this reality that aligns my daily actions and realigns them even when I have not succeeded. What we do is so important because it affects not only our particular time but generations later when we are no longer here. What kind of legacy will we leave?

Mahalia Jackson's influence was international because she spoke of hope though she was fully aware of the present unjust policies of her day. She spoke peace into the atmosphere. The beauty in our present time of uncertainty for so many worldwide is the very real hope that together We Shall Overcome. Speak hope. Look at what we have already as people in our history done.
