My reflection:
“One day the teacher… asked that I read from Lessons in Truth, a section which ended with these words: ‘God loves me.’ I read the piece and closed the book, and the teacher said, ‘Read it again.’ I pointedly opened the book, and I sarcastically read, ‘God loves me.’ He said, ‘Again.’ After about the seventh repetition I began to sense that there might be truth in the statement, that there was a possibility that God really did love me. Me, Maya Angelou. I suddenly began to cry at the grandness of it all. I knew that if God loved me, then I could do wonderful things, I could try great things, learn anything achieve anything. For what could stand against me with God, since one person, any person with God, constitutes the majority?” Maya Angelou
If God is for us nothing can be against us!?
