Today started out as IMG_20131224_125228_2any other day for me. I opened my eyes and said thank you Lord for another day, I am so grateful for all you have done, and for what you have given me. Father, I am even grateful for the trial I am going through as I pen these words. I know deep down in my heart you are building my character and preparing me for something even greater than I can possibly imagine.

Then I thought wow! It’s been almost six months that my wife went back to Australia. It has been a great challenge not knowing if I will ever see her again and dealing with the fact that she is pregnant at the same time. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 says; Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing. I have been drawing closer to God that he may draw closer to me. However, I know he will never fail me nor forsake me. That I am truly grateful for.

On my way to work this morning I was crying out to the Lord asking him to give me something, my heart is yearning like never before. I get to work and I assign every one what I would like them to do for the time being. I go into my office and try to catch up on some paper work. I get started and I hear my phone go off. I know I need to get this done so I stay focused to completion.

I walk out of the office and I see my boss standing out side so I go out there to talk to him. That’s when I remembered the message on my phone. It is now break time so I take my phone out and look at it in awe. It is a message from my wife in Australia. She informed me that she had to have an emergency C-section. My heart began to melt when she said it was very traumatic, it was like I could feel her pain. Then she went on to say that her and baby Alice are doing well and that she is absolutely gorgeous. I thought well, she takes after her mother:) Anyway, long story short, I’m a father my friends:)

I would like to ask you all to pray for Emily and baby Alice. Pray that Emily has a great recovery and that the Lord will strengthen her and lift her up. Pray that the Lord will bless both of them more than they could ever imagine. Thank you beloved and God bless you all.

Youth leader,

About spiritministries

I am a man who has learned not to rely on my own understanding the hard way. God revealed himself to me two and a half years before I got out of prison. It's the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. There is truly only one way and that is to have a relationship with God. Since my release S.P.I.R.I.T Ministries has came to fruition. We meet every Wednesday night at 7p.m. God asked me to write a book, in 18 months I finished Rock Bottom; Inspired by God, He provided me with a web blog, thank you Andrew, as you can see, I am a motivational-inspirational speaker, and singer. We now have a band known as The Un-Scene, you can find the link on my web site and check it out on face book. I am just a man who was given true life while in prison, freedom, salvation, and unspeakable joy by the grace of God. We go many places to speak and sing for the glory of God. I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything a part from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. If you would like to hear us just contact me and God willing we will remain obedient. God bless you all.
