So, I say to myself: be on your own with God—He can be your friend all the time, not just Sunday morning. Come Monday and Tuesday and through the week to meet Him in church, or go find Him some other place—He’s everywhere, if you’ll only want to look. If you live with Him long and hard, you’re carrying His spirit; if you think of Him but once a week you’re just another—I guess you be another Mississippian! “I’d like to be a minister, so I could know the Bible, and preach it to other folks. But in my heart, I don’t believe the Lord wants me preaching on Sundays; He wants me living His way all the days of the week.
