Born in Northern California, the city by the bay I recount the graciousness my Lord has completed in my life.
At or around the time of my fifteen birthday my parents joined Jones United Methodist church in San Francisco Ca. I remember the pastor called me to serve our Lord Jesus Christ. However, my thinking at the time, that it was not a cool thing to do, I delayed my service until later in life. Oh, how youthful decisions are forgivable later in life.
The Lord has been so good to me in the following ways. Staining good health when other friends, my same age, fight cancer and other disease. So good, His wisdom leads me to fight against the ideals of the world, pointing me to scriptures in the Bible. Teaching me why I should not love worldly things, made from the hands of humankind. Rather, attend spiritual meetings not for entertainment but to learn how to grow in a deeper awareness of celebrating God, to celebrate the knowledge of Godís word, that leads my life after righteous.
I love God for he gave me knowledge to do His work. He illustrated the pilgrimage of Abram to Abraham, Jacob to Israel, a tribe of twelve to one king name Saul. My God bequeathed the obedient one (Jesus Christ) who died for the sin of the world. He guided me through uncontrolled anger and drug abuse to a loving spouse. Oh, how the Lord has been good to me. God sculpted my clay into a faith bound dependence on Jesus Christ. He is there, when the bills are late, during the sorrows of an unjust war, racism tactics of Jim Crow and Jim Crow Jr. Policies of voter suppression, class war warfare, created to oppressed and neglect the underserved. Where would I be if the Holy Spirit did not fill and support my cries of freedom? Yes, the Lord sustains my life and I praise him during the good and bad times in life. I will sing the glorious psalms of testimony about Jehovah in the name of Jesus Christ my saviour Amen.
