“You must be the change you wish to see in the world” Mahatma Gandhi. Through the course of his life, John Lewis experienced some key turning points that shaped him into becoming the determined and brave leader he was. Lewis was not alone during these major events as several people, including Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and Jim Lawson, helped him during these times and expanded his knowledge. The trilogy March demonstrates some of these turning points in books one and two, those being his first bible, spiritual journey, the non-violent workshops, and arrests. John Lewis’ passion for preaching began at the age of four when his uncle gave him his first bible, which would have an enormous impact in his life.
In preparing for this sermon, I discovered that some folk refer to this Psalm as Luther’s Psalm, as in Martin Luther. After all, he did write a rather famous, and most popular hymn titled, ‘A Mighty Fortress Is Our God’ in which Psalm 46 served as his inspiration. What I did not know was the historical context behind this great hymn.

In Particular, I began to notice that I am getting old enough to understand that I am all I got to look up to and I don’t want to set a bad image for myself. Also, my decisions are what I make them to be, no one can choose my actions for me, so I have to choose them wisely. Admittedly, I got back into the church and also going back and finish school to better myself and my education. However, now I open my eyes every day knowing I am going to have a good day with no negativity, I have my family back helping me but I let the friends go completely.
Now I know I can do anything through Him, so the possibilities are endless. God will always bless me tremendously if I keep my faith in Him. Sometimes I just have to keep my head up, pray, and stay strong.
"Every Good Endeavor”, by Timothy Keller, starts with an amazing statement that I wanted to share in the beginning of this journal. He says, "The Bible begins talking about work as soon as it begins talking about anything - that is how important and basic it is.” (Keller, Pg 33) I love that statement.

God and church activities have been a part of my weekly routine for as long as I can remember. If it is nine o’clock on a Sunday morning, I will definitely be in a church pew at Highland Baptist Church.

I have been given the amazing opportunity to be raised on Godly morals in a strong Christian household. Because of this, God has always been the center of my life, or at least that is what I thought.

I spent my time supervising and aiding the campers in their different activities, which consisted of crafts, music, Bible study, snacks, and games.
