I knew that there were forces that were trying to kill me. John later returned to the jobsite with a sawed off shotgun. I had seen him running with the gun, but he hadn't seen me yet. It was God himself said, 'stop'. John did stop dead in his tracks. I was desperately searching for a solution to my problems. I started attending church. It was a normal service, but I felt everything except normal. During the service, Bishop Jakes called me out of this huge audience. I was scared. I pointed at myself like " Who? Me?" But I proceeded to the altar. Bishop Jakes laid his big hands on my head and prayed for me. The devil was not impressed. The devil knew his time was limited, so he took advantage of all my weaknesses and he did it at rapid pace. I believe we're all struggling in some area in our lives. Some of us are trying to stay on the path to righteousness. Allow me to be your gift coach. The size of your enemy could be the size of your reward. Your problems could be your promotion. If you give them to God. Get on board and I will take you on a ride that will lead you into discovering how to use the gifts God has given you to fulfill your destiny in Christ. Because a gift unopened is worthless and a gift is not a gift until you give it away.
