I came from a life of humble beginnings; not in the least of which was poverty, born on a farm in NC and raised in inner city Newark, NJ. Even without a knowing or having a knowledge and relationship with God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son and His Holy Spirit, I used what I did know of His power and love to stand-up and walk into an accomplished life style. I was able to walk into an exclusive neighborhood in Collin County, TX to build my new home, a career that spandrel the US and ascension to the level of a senior corporate staffers (including but not limited to, salaried and executive comp, employee relations, policies procedures guideline, training and development, etc.). But then the Holy Ghost took over, delivering me out of sin and death (Egypt) to a life of abundance. It wasn’t until I was over 40 and in a major crises in my own life that I became aware of God’s calling for His divine purpose. At the core of the process was 18+ years in a call center environment. It was then that I realized God’s hand In my life from my birth. (A birth in which both I & my mother’s life were in danger.) And unknowing to me, I was continuingly walking in the shallow of death. The call of God to purpose is what drives the spirit in a person through these challenges and teaches us to run and not walk in the shallow of death. “My friends, I don’t feel I have already arrived. But I forget what is behind, and I struggle for what is ahead.” Philippians 3:13 CEV. This scripture is telling us there are some things we must leave behind in order to reach new heights.
Life Giving Seed for The Journey
The life light of love comes from the spirit of God within and is what draws you to purpose. In the presence of the Lord, we are saturated by his Holy Spirit. It is not by might nor by power but by the spirit of the Lord (Zechariah 4:6). The plan God has for each of us isn’t a duplication of anything you know outside of Him. He’s your manufacturer and only He knows what He created you to be. Your role is to seek His face, not His hands, for the plan He has for you.
We are all in a ship sailing alone the journey called life. The path taken on this journey can be a struggle, the winds and heavy rain can be strong storms at times and each step will be more challenging; some ships will just drift through life and others just give up and quit but many will sail on a little further out into the deep. Launching out into the deep in Christ Jesus(anointing and the anointed one) is where you will find your core; who you are, why you are here, and what you’re to do while on this journey for life. Out in the deep can be where you find hills and valley lows or challenges coming from wrong decisions. I remember when I first heard the voice of God at the tender age of 10. It has take me fifty years to discover the meaning of that word and the why the call to destiny came. So, from the tender age of 10 to now, some fifty plus years, I’ll been on the backside of the mountain training for my assignment for what I believe is such a time as this.
