It is my vision to share with you through my writings what God has put into my heart and spirit. The Lord has shown me what he requires of me, and I am ready to do his will. Spiritual warfare is something I am no stranger to. I believe in my heart we are living in these last and evil days. Some of you are fighting and don’t understand or know what you are fighting. The flesh is dangerous; the heart is wicked and corrupt, and sometimes we become our own enemy. For these reasons, it is important to stay on your knees or in your prayer closet, asking God to cover you from the enemy because Satan is out to kill and destroy. I know firsthand! Knowing Satan’s goal is to destroy me, I lift my hands and glorify him. He spared my life and gave me one more chance to get it right, so here I am.
I was born and raised on the South Side of Chicago. My childhood was not easy, but God had a plan for me and covered me with his hands of mercy, especially when I couldn’t cover myself. I left high school at the age of 14 and walked down some dangerous highways for the next few years. I left Chicago and moved to Terry, Mississippi, where I received my first blessing, my GED. I relocated to Chicago and enrolled in Olive Harvey Jr. College from which I graduated with an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts May 2, 1986. After that, I began to make some foolish decisions that caused my life to spiral out of control and led me down a pathway leading straight to hell. Once again, God came to my rescue. I will save those traumas for my next book.
I decided after years of struggling with demonic warfare to join the military. After numerous of appearances in court to clear my name to avoid a six-year prison term (God covered me from the enemy), I enlisted in the United States Army on October 15, 1987, and retired after 20 years at Fort Lewis, WA, on November 1, 2007. During my time in the Armed Forces, I received my BA, in Biblical Studies from Amridge University (formally Regions University) in December of 2006. Three years later, I obtained my MA, Degree from Liberty University on May 10, 2009 (Management). Before the year ended, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor and underwent brain surgery Dec 10, 2009 (see photos below). As you can see spiritual warfare is something I am no stranger to. The Book of Ephesians 6:12 (KJV) clearly states: “We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”I had three major deployment’s Operation Desert Storm Desert Shield, Operation Uphold Democracy (Haiti), and Tikrit, Iraq. My highest award achieved is the Bronze Star, which I received while assigned as the Senior Food Operations Non-Commissioned Officer during Operation Iraqi Freedom.
I am married with three children my youngest was diagnosed with Autism on the Spectrum, and he is my hero. I am currently residing in Florida. I am an aspiring writer and Psalmist who love to sing praise and worship songs for the Lord (singing since age 5). I have come close to death on three different occasions, but God spared me and covered me from my enemies. One of those enemies was “me.” It’s funny how we all have those relatives who predict the age you will live to see. I had one aunt who told me I would not live to see 21, but as you can tell, she was wrong. Satan is a liar and wanted to plant that seed that I would die young in my head.
I proved him wrong, too. I am 56 years old and living every moment I have left here on earth doing God’s will. I am a real warrior, now in the Lord’s army. I owe the Lord Praise! Thank God for Forgiveness. Please don’t forget to stop by Facebook page on your way out. I would also like to thank my family for helping me to maintain this webpage.
Peace Be Unto You
