My devotion to the Word of God began shortly after my teenage years.  My Mother and Father were very faithful in His word and in the power of the Holy Spirit.  Earlier in life I always knew and felt the presence of God but, I was often naive about how he helped me through all those years.  Shortly after I arrived in Atlanta, I met many young men and women who were really walking in faith.  It was something I wasn’t used to but, I soon invited these friends in my life with open arms.

In 2002, God started working behind the scenes to bring me closer to Him and His word.  That spring, I went through a time of loneliness.  It was a time of placement to remove me from the world so I could call on God.  In March of that next year, days after I lost my job and car, I had to move from the home I was staying in because it was too far from my college.  I remember one night waking up in the middle of the night and submitting to God.  Shortly after that, God began seriously impacting my life.  I received another job and I found a place to stay but, it was a new awareness He blessed me with that impacted me the most.  I began to see and feel things I hadn’t experienced before.  And, the power of the Holy Spirit was growing in me.

In 2004, I received my first breakthrough.  His power and grace were only things I could feel before.  He then blessed my tongue with the ability to express those things I was feeling.  I could communicate with other Christians about things I went through and was experiencing.  Most recently, the Lord again took me out of the world.  For about a year and a half, I didn’t have a vehicle plus my long time girlfriend and I decided to go our separate ways.  This left me in conversations and prayer with God.  My best friend who has always been my biggest connection to God was again right there by my side through this and all the things I had been through up until now.  His love for me and my decision to walk with God has been life changing.  For the past five to seven years, my cup has been filling with the Holy Spirit. I feel like I have just recently been let back into the world with a brand new spirit.  I know my mission in life is to bring other souls closer to God and His word.  I have not always lived as I do now but, I do know that this is where I should be and I am letting God use me as a tool to show his love and mercy to others.
