I was on the sofa and being visited by the landlord. He told me of God’s love for me and if I would give my life to Jesus then it could change. I was 15 and had been in a minor car accident and had many thoughts. How did I get here in the Bronx, New York, living in an apartment with my mom and 2 sisters?

You see, my family had moved from Jamaica, West Indies eight years before. We were doing really good and then it all fell apart. My mom and dad separated and eventually got a divorce. I was twelve and the family decline began. We lost our big home in Brooklyn, New York, and had to live out of suitcases for many months. At times we were homeless in New York City. We would find an apartment and several months later I would return home from school and find an eviction notice on the door and the lock would be changed. This happened again and again several times.

After quite some time, we found this apartment in the Bronx. We found out that the landlord was a pastor and the church van would pick up my sister every Sunday. It was this same pastor that told me about Jesus after my minor car accident. There on the sofa, I decided to give my life over to God and since then my life has not been the same. I received a sense of peace in my soul where before there was war.

My situation changed little by little. I became a part of this church and learned about Christ’s love for me and His ever-present help in times of trouble. I had much more trouble. Our family broke apart and I was on my own for the next several years. During this time when I was in High School, I shared an apartment with several guys from the church. After graduating High School, God enabled me to go to Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma. It was there that I met incredible friends and after graduating college, I moved to Tulsa where I eventually met my wife. God showed me that no matter what trouble you face in this life His Grace is all sufficient and will keep you and take you through if you will follow His lead and not go your own way.

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Cor. 12:9
