The LORD is truly a rewarder to those who seek Him diligently.
I wasn’t raised by my biological father. For years, I had so much hidden sadness in my heart… As an early adult, I tried to have a relationship with him but it never worked out and I just became more hurt. I made a lot of bad decisions as result of my pain. But, I never considered his pain, the torment my father may be feeling as result of his bad choices that I knew he regretted. A few years ago I started praying that the Holy Spirit purge me from bitterness, anger, insecurities… all the negative emotions I had as result of feeling abandoned by my biological father. And, I decided to start praying that God would heal, restore and transform my father. I also discern that my father lived in a state of condemnation. I wanted my father to know Jesus had forgiven him as I knew my father was truly sorry and repented often… so I choose to lot go of everything negative I had against him and began to serve him as the Lord lead me. Showing him first, that I love him and I forgave him. Additionally, I would cry out to the Lord often asking the Holy Spirit to draw my father and I prayed he would receive the Master’s grace. And on Sunday, May 19, 2019 my father expressed outwardly his inner conviction, that Jesus Christ who died on the cross and rose from the grave 3 days later is his Savior!!! That he has choosen to follow the Everlasting God! In Jesus my father is a new creature! Old things have passed away!
Thank You Jesus!!!
As a Minister I have had the privilege to baptize many, truly, it is difficult to find words to express my humble gratitude! I’m not worthy!!!
To baptize my father… to watch him be reborn into the likeness of God… my soul rejoices!!
I didn’t tell my father I have been praying for him for years. I didn’t ask him if he wanted to get baptized. He just called me a few weeks ago prior and cried out that he wanted to get baptized to be closer to JESUS! It was completely his decision!
Thank You Lord!!!
For the Bible says “no one can come to the Father unless He draws him”. O’ Jesus, thank you for drawing my father! Don’t let go O’ God!

A few things:
- If you’ve never accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, you can today!
- Find two of my books, “Blessed Is” and “Examine First, Yourself” at Amazon, Barnes and Noble or my online store.
- Connect with me on Instagram
- If you’re not part of a local church, it is extremely important that you seek God in leading you to an anointed place of worship. One of the enemy’s greatest and most powerful weapons is to have you separated from the assembly.
