Please tell us a little bit about your message.
When I think about it. When God shares or gives it to me, I want to share how good God is even when you’re doing things that you are not supposed to do. God is still excellent. I started doing a lot of things I had no business doing. Not knowing that God was still in my life because I felt like I was just lucky.
I did a lot of wrong things, and He covered me the whole time. I did not have a clue that it was him. Once I got a relationship with him it changed everything in the beginning to change everything.
Tell us about your background and how you started your journey.
I was a bad little kid. I got put out of Saint Joseph’s In the 6th grade. My mother came and whipped me in front of the whole class. I didn’t want to pay attention to anybody. It was Sherman’s way or no way. I don’t want to say I was a bully but it had to be my way or not way. If anyone said something about my lip, I fought. I fought until I was in the 9th grade.
What were the top three mistakes you made starting your journey, and what did you learn from them?
– Not understanding God in my life earlier.
– Thinking I knew it all.
– Not thinking I was worthy to be used by God.
What was your first business idea, and what did you do with it? What were some of the lessons you had? Why is that important?
As a club owner, I had money with no plan. People were stealing from me. I trusted everybody. I had to experience all of that. I’m thinking that everyone who is laughing and giggling with me would do right and they were stealing the whole time.
I never thought I would be broke. I was getting money so much that you know they took it or whatever this is but you know I never dreamed I would be broke. It never crossed my mind. It is not always the plan. I know that is going to mess some of you up. We think it is a plan, but the plan is no good without His plan. That’s number one. We’ll do our plan and after our plan get in trouble then we go to God for His plan.
We don’t go to Him first and ask him what direction to do and how to do it you know I think we’re afraid of how He is gonna tell us or he might tell us not yet and we wanna do it right now. He doesn’t know the reason why we wait so long.
I would tell any new person to ask God for your directions. Ask Him and be patient enough to listen. Do not act if you’re not gonna listen, Do not ask God if you’re not gonna listen. After you then do exactly what He said. It is gonna be a process but I’m telling you it’ll be well worth it.
How do you feel about how marriage and relationships are viewed and treated nowadays?
The Holy Spirit started bothering me, messing with me, irritating me because I did not wanna get married. I never thought in a million years, marriage could be this great. If I didn’t get a relationship with God it probably wouldn’t have been where is right now. I think the relationship that I have with God, and the relationship she has with God has saved our marriage and made our marriage what it is.
I don’t think that any one of us could be where we are right now if we don’t have a relationship with God. I think that really is the total for us in marriage.
I think marriages have a bad communication gap. They don’t communicate. I think marriages can communicate more. If you want to marriage to be successful you got to communicate more. God first and then communication if you want your marriage to be great right now and it could be even better than you ever imagined with a relationship with God and communication.
I do not think people are serious about marriage. They do not have a clue of what the vows mean. When the preacher says, until death do us part, they do not understand what death do you part means. The first argument that gets in, they are getting a divorce. The first argument or the first time he does something, or she does something she is not supposed to do and they are ready to get a divorce. alarm when people get in right now and again the devils the first or the first time you did she had not been adored I’m ready to get a device that you need trying to work it out not taking masters.
What advice would you give to men who are unsure about committing?
If you are unsure, you cannot commit. It will not work. If you go into a relationship thinking you are unsure, it won’t work. If you are unsure, do not commit that’s my best advice.
I made my mind up in 2000 that’s what I want to do, but I had never sense to proposition God for six months. I said God, let me go to 2000. In 1999 when He first told me. I asked him for six more months. Most of the things I said to God, I have done. God had enough patience with me and let me go through there after calling me in 1999. I asked him to let me finish whatever I was doing, and I was able to give it up.
What are the top 5 things a person who hears your message should take away?
I will speak the truth.
However, God directs me, I will make sure I always follow the Holy Spirit. I want to make sure that I always do what the Holy Spirit says to do, regardless of the numbers. If there are 10 people and you’re not motivated until there are 100 people. If there are 2 people present, I want to speak the same thing if there are millions. He said where two or three are gathered together, I will be in the midst. I don’t want numbers to discourage me from speaking to people.
I believe that everybody at the time they listen to my message I believe from the bottom of my heart that I think that things were changing their lives. I don’t think God would have you listen to my messages without changing you. I just don’t. Something I will say will bless you. If you listen to me for 10-15 minutes and do not get something, the devil is a lie.
You will be blessed. follow the Holy Spirit change will occur and they’ll be blessed
Faith without works is dead. Without faith, it is impossible to please Him.
