You remember Harriet Tubman, right? If you ever need encouragement, read her biography.
When Harriet was just 15 years old, an “overseer hit her in the head with a 2-pound lead weight,” sending Harriet into a coma. She actually spent many months recovering from that assault and had blackouts for the rest of her life. And why did he hit her? Because Harriet was trying to help a runaway slave.
Eventually, she escaped slavery and “made 19 trips on the Underground Railroad and helped to free more than 300 slaves.” That is why she is referred to as the “Moses of her people.” Because like Moses in the Bible (Exodus), Harriet Tubman lead many slaves to freedom.
Harriet also worked as a spy for the Union army during the Civil War, and she was employed as “a government nurse in Washington D.C.”
No matter what setbacks you have encountered in your life, just know you can make it to the other side of your problems and discover endless blessings.
Harriet Tubman most likely felt like slavery was “it” for her. And the physical abuse she endured did not shine any bright light of hope in her heart. Nevertheless, she found a way to hold on to a small piece of hope that remained inside her. And look how her life turned out.
Like Harriet, God has great plans for your life. He will place you on top of all those painful obstacles that were sent to enslave you. If you believe that, type AMEN in the comment section.
