Thanks, for sharing your story. That’s powerful.
Man all I can say is WOW! I don’t know why a person has to go through so much when there’s a call on your life. But this article took me back to when I was ministered to by Prophetess Pam Vinnette from Oklahoma on New Year’s Eve 1994 and how she also ministered to my pregnant wife and unborn son. I remember the Lord prophesying to me and I wrote down what He said concerning me. I still have that word written down. I don’t think I ran from it, but I know I was more fearful of it. I seemed as though it was a huge responsibility and I still do, which causes some trust and confidence issues. I realize now the 9 years of crack addiction, the near death experience, the angelic experiences and even the current battle, is all part of the preparation process. Man I am at a loss for words at the moment, but I look forward to part 2 of this story.
I enjoyed reading this article very much. The world cannot understand God’s calling we just need to live the way God calls us. My husband ran from the call for 10 yrs. before answering. He finally answered and struggled with being a Methodist minister for 32 yrs. before he died but he was a serious, Bible preaching Methodist. We had a tough life at times but were so blessed. I would do it all over again. I don’t regret one day of it. So glad for people like you.
