As you know or may not know, I have been seeking and searching many books, articles, internet topics, etc., for how I fit in this place called earth. My search is ongoing. I am not saying that I have learned all there is to know about my journey, but I have certainly found much of what I was seeking. The Word reads in Matthew 7:7, “Ask and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you: for everyone that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” This is what I did, and I can testify that it has been nothing but a rewarding journey.
When I was about seventeen years old, my earthly father died. At that age, there was nothing in me that could answer the question, “Why?” So I looked up and said, “I do not understand what just happened to my father; help me.” My nephew, also reared as my youngest brother, placed his hand on me and told me not to be sad; everything would be okay. The touch of his warm hand made me feel better. I believe this was the moment that the Holy Spirit let me feel His presence.
As a young adult, I felt terribly frustrated and knew I was not of this world. I did all of the things I was, “expected” to do. I went to college and got an education. I worked in various positions until now. In all of this, I was still searching and seeking how I fit in.
One New Year’s Eve, I was sitting on the floor of my apartment getting ready to do the “Dick Clark thing,” yet I was bored. I looked up at the TV, and on top of it was the Bible. I picked it up, turned to the New Testament, and started reading. I did not stop for three days. It answered a lot of questions I had about who and why I was. This certainly got my attention, and after that, the search was on. I got married, had three handsome sons, and opened my own business. I believed Jehovah God allowed me to have this business, so I would take time to seek Him while earning a living. I worked the business for fifteen years and then decided that I had had enough.
Due to various events: a significant business closing, the State of Georgia requiring more of my money and my mother’s passing, I decided to close the business. I thank God for allowing me to have had the business. I asked Him, “Father, what do I do now”? He replied, “I want you.” I asked Him, “What does that mean?” He told me to go back and read the Old Testament. I studied both testaments when I was in college, but now I was going to read them for myself. The Bible answered other questions I had about the world and eternal life. My search took me to the Internet, where I was able to gain knowledge of God through man’s technology at my fingertips. Most of what I learned was not taught in church. I printed out events that mapped Genesis to Revelations, including this present day.
I have been blessed all my life. I know this is hard to believe, but it is true. I am not saying I have not had trials and tribulations, because we need trials and tribulations to grow.
If someone were to ask me the one thing I got from my studies, it would be that it is not about me. Jehovah started long ago, a plan disrupted by Satan, but it still exists and will be completed real soon.
If I can help someone with my story, my journey will not have been in vain. I am a living testimony to these events. I believe that Jehovah God is alive, and His Son, Jesus, will reign on this earth, someday, forever. He Lives…
So please, allow me to place one of my books in your facility. If it comes up missing, do let me know.
I would love to visit your facility and speak with anyone that may need to be uplifted and informed about Our Father, His Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
