God called me in the strangest of places. I have so many glorious testimonies for the Lord, but I think it appropriate to speak on what started me back on the journey with the Lord.
In February of 2015, I had to go to jail for 10 days and it was one of the hardest things for me to do, because I had to willingly surrender. On the way to the prison, our pastor, my Uncle Mark, prayed over me and gave me some words of encouragement that I was not too keen on hearing at the time. I received the sentence because of a DUI and I did not agree with the time fitting the crime. I begrudgingly allowed the pastor to pray for me and walked into county jail.
My short time in jail was an amazing and uplifting experience. I was faced with a host of broken men and lost souls, but found a few that really connected with me. God was able to minister to me there through an older gentlemen that was sent there through bizarre circumstances. The long and short of the story is that God called me back to him while there and I regave my life to Christ in jail. I cried out for the Lord in a cell block of 30 other men.
Fast forward to today, 12/30/2018, God gets the glory because I have took every detour, stopped at every delay, and sped through every school zone, but the God of all grace has kept me for his purposes and allowed me to be able to say this, that if it had not been for the Lord, who has been by my side, I would not be here to testify to God’s glorious and unmerited love and grace. Many events have transpired and miracles performed by the Lord in between this time and 2015. The power of the Lord Jesus Christ to heal, correct and change all that is broken is real. You have only to believe!
Thank you God. There are blessings waiting for you in 2019, we have only to walk in our faith.
Be well and BLESSED!
