It is my prayer that with her passing the next generations will come to appreciate her for the gift she shared with us. His gift, His honesty....she was truly a reflection of Our Father. Though I never had a chance to meet her personally, she allowed all of us to know her intimately. Let her be an example to all of us to strive, to reach, to fulfill the purpose He's placed on us. We were created to do something of significance in the world to magnify Him. Let's do it!!! I had the honor on Thursday of going to a forum sponsored by the Congressional Black Caucus about Brown v. The Board of Education, and the state of young black men in this country. They showed a quote from big sister Maya that almost brought me to tears...."The desire to reach for the stars is ambitious. The desire to reach hearts is wise." I understand that now Sister Maya. I know what ambition can do for you, I know the road that can take you on. Yet now that I'm aiming at hearts, I understand what wisdom truly is. As I sat in the US Capitol building overflowing with emotions about what my father would be saying, Sister Maya's words perfectly illustrated it.
All I did before was to reach a point where I would be able to exercise influence. The ambition to be someone of importance fully engulfed me. Yet, that wasn't enough. Wisdom has taught me that it's not about what we accumulate, or how influential one can be. That doesn't last. If I can be used to do something to change the hearts of men though. AMEN!!! If He can use me to change another's heart, then that person will go change another person's heart. That is how we really lead a life of influence, that is how we leave a legacy of significance....by sharing with others what He has done for us. Truly, truly, He aims to change the heart. A little emotional right now, so I'm gonna wrap this up. Here's a scripture to meditate on.... "Then I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within them, and take the stony heart out of their flesh, and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in My statutes and keep My judgments and do them; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God." (Ezekiel 11:19-20) Thank you Sister Maya for allowing Him to use you as one of His heart specialist. Love y'all
