February is Black History month in the United States, and below are quotes from famous African-Americans mentioning God.
"I am not a perfect servant. I am a public servant doing my best against the odds. As I develop and serve, be patient. God is not finished with me yet."
"One and God make a majority."
"Only by God's grace have I made it to see today and only by God's grace will I ever see tomorrow."
"While I know myself a creation of God, I am also obligated to realize and remember that everyone else and everything else are also God's creation."
"Our creator is the same and never changes despite the names given Him by people here and in all parts of the world. Even if we gave Him no name at all, He would still be there, within us., waiting to give us good on this earth."
"If the first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn the world upside down all alone, these women together ought to be able to turn it back, and get it right side up again!"
"I just want to do God's will. And he's allowed me to go to the mountain. And I've looked over, and I've see the promised land! I may not get there with you, but I want you to know tonight that we as a people will get to the promised land."
"People see God every day, they just don't recognize Him."
"If I were to say, "God, why me?" about the bad things, then I should have said, "God, why?" about the good things that happened in my life."
