Harriet Tubman: Pep Talk
Jes holdin' that light tight and protected within yo' soul
is the strongest thing you can do.
Harriet Tubman: Sho is. You done got yo' knickers in a twist just because things don’t seem to be goin' yo' way. Well, gal, pull up them britches and let’s get marchin’. This ain’t nothing but a call to action. When they go low, like that li’l ole gal said, we go right at ‘em.
Nothing you do on behalf of our Lord is wasted. The littlest gesture is jes the same as a full-fledged fight. And we don’t have to shed blood to fight. We don’t go after any one person like I hear you wantin’ to blame that little general Ruthie Ginsburg cause she couldn't get herself to quit the fight so’s some others could step up. She made a mistake, mebbe yeah, but mistakes won’t take us down as long as we keep marchin' cause, when we march, we bring the full glory and power of our Lord down to this earth, and there ain’t nothin’ that can stand in the way o’ that for long.
You don’t think so, but this li’l ole blog is yo way of marchin'. Evabody gots they own way to carry the light of the Lord. I asks eva one o' you to find yo' own way, and don’t let go. Don’t quit even if you have to pull back. Jes holdin' that light tight and protected within yo' soul is the strongest thing you can do.
We in this together. Don’t let anybody talk you into layin’ down your arms – not yo guns, you silly old thing, your arms that reach up to Jesus and all those he would love if’n he was walking with you today. Because he is. Let him take yo' hand, open yo' eyes, and you will see him cause he right there.
