I wake up and can’t believe I’m still alive after all I’ve been through thus far. Daily, I look in the mirror and get reminded of death from a six-inch scar down my stomach. How could I have faced death three times and I am only 24? Why did I ever doubt God’s presence in my life? How can my own father treat me as if I don’t exist, as if I am nothing to him? Yes, this all happened and because it didn’t kill me it only made me stronger. Now, I know I am worthy of life, love, and purpose. Now, I know there can never be light without darkness. And it is my time to shine. With the love of God, and perseverance there is nothing I cannot and will not overcome. I pray you to find happiness even when there seems to be nothing to smile about. Get your copy of Perseverance is my Power; the autobiography of my life. In December 2018, it will be available online and in stores near you.
