I am sharing with all of you, a journal I read for one of my Master’s Degree classes this past week. It is written by an African America woman preacher in 1849- BEFORE the Civil War. She talks a bit about the struggles she goes through to follow the call of God on her life, due to poverty, racism, sexism and more. Her story is so amazing, and inspiring. Her courage and obedience to God is convicting, and it challenges us to do all God has asked of us to do, no matter what the obstacles. I hope you are as inspired as I was. Here, in her own words, Jarena Lee:
