Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you; He rises to show you compassion. For the Lord is a God of justice. Isaiah 30:18
Dr. Bernice King, daughter of the late Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the CEO of the King Center in Atlanta, is a personal friend. I first met her in a television studio green room as we were waiting to be interviewed. I felt we made a connection. We are both daughters of famous preachers (who were also friends to each other), and we are preachers ourselves. So in the year 2000, when we held Just Give Me Jesus/Atlanta in the Philips Arena, I asked Dr. King to come and share her testimony with the overflow crowd of women who had gathered. She did. She shared in a very transparent way the anger and rage she had felt in the aftermath of her father’s assassination. But then she also shared she had found a sweet release when she turned to her Heavenly Father at the Cross, receiving His forgiveness as she in turn extended it to others.
