Arise, dear soul, and carefully reflect who God is to you and how He moves through your past and present. The Trans-Atlantic Slave trade was one of the first insistences of human trafficking and despite countless struggles to end the institution of slavery, it is still a plague on society.
The voice of change is at times honeyed like a choir singing on Sunday; sometimes it sings as loud as an Angels trumpet. I know God answers Prayers.
I thank Thee, my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Thy dear Son, that Thou hast graciously kept me this day; and I pray Thee that you will forgive me all my sins. For into Thy hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things. Let Thy holy angel be with me, that the wicked Foe may have no power over me. Amen.

For selfishness in any and every form is
dissipation, weakness, death; unselfishness in its spiritual aspect is
conservation, power, life. As you grow in spiritual life, and become
established upon principles, you will become as beautiful and as unchangeable
as those principles, will taste of the sweetness of their immortal essence, and
will realize the eternal and indestructible nature of the God within.
harmful shaft can reach the righteous man,
Standing erect amid the storms of hate,
Defying hurt and injury and ban,
Surrounded by the trembling slaves of Fate.
Majestic in the strength of silent power,
Serene he stands, nor changes not nor turns;
Patient and firm in suffering's darkest hour,
Time bends to him, and death and doom he spurns.
Wrath's lurid lightning’s round about him play,
And hell's deep thunders roll about his head;
heeds he not, for him they cannot slay
Who stands whence earth and time and space are fled.
