Hello Everyone! God’s blessings greeted unto you!
Recently I posted a post about designing a business card through Vista-print I used the Vista-print editor to design the business card… I had also posted a post about which homepage image the readers would like on the home page between online comments and speaking to others through various online options, image 2 was the major vote so I added the homepage image to the business cards as well for uniformity between the cards and website.
After I choose checkout option on Vista-print, the Vista-print website recommended other items with the ministry name and cartoon avatar logo and I’m a big on coffee throughout the day. So I got I and Ana, each a coffee mug as well with the purchase of the business cards. I bought the coffee mugs for 2 reasons.
- Ana, encouraged me when I was 16, to ask the Lord into my life I couldn’t get the conversation out of my mind for many years after that, and I ended up asking the Lord, into my life during the year of 2011 I was with my now ex-wife in 2011, After 22 yrs of separation between I and Ana, I ran into Ana on the bus platform towards the end of 2017 and by January of 2018 there was no options left to fix the marriage with my now ex-wife because my wife at the time made it clear she wanted to be with her lover so I divorced my wife at the time.
I was heart broken after spending 19 yrs with the woman (Not Ana,) I thought that the woman at the time that was my wife loved me like I loved her. Ana, Kindly listened to my painful feelings and Ana, brought up the fact that now I was free to start the ministry full time. So I got the coffee cup so Ana, can drink her tea and be reminded that all these years of praying to her Heavenly Father that her prayers were answered! That is because I turned from the gang life and going into ministry for the Lord. The very aspect Ana, prayed about all these years
- I got an Coffee cup as well to remind me where God had brought me from to where I am going in His direction for those tough days were I need the extra encouragement to keep fighting the good fight to push ahead for the Lord Almighty. .(More written content below)
When I was 16 I wasn’t a Christian that part didn’t happen until I was in my 30’s Back when I was 16, I would hear Garth Brooks River song break across the radio and I couldn’t help but imagine what life would be like if I did become a willing vessel servant unto the Lord. Here it is 2020 and I see how the Lord used that song throughout the years catching the song with my ears in stores and how it still encouraged me to want better in my life and what I mean by better since I was 16, I wanted to do great things in this world that would help humanity, but at the time I didn’t know that would come true today! with running and authoring Soulja of Hope.

I’ll never forget Ana, saying when I was 16, “Why are you wasting your smartness, gifts, and talents all of what the good Lord gave you on the gang life?” The Good Lord Almighty used Ana, as a servant vessel unto Yahweh to plant a seed within me. Ana’s words back then has been stuck in my mind all these years later. Ana, to this very day still encourage me to fight the good battle. I say this because recently I was crying hardcore saying to Ana, I didn’t think I had it in me to push forward anymore and Ana, said to me the Good Lord, did NOT bring you through all those life trials for you to fail now.
My hopes are the readers that are reading this post that have dreams to go higher heights will seek the Lord Almighty and step out in faith and march the land of the unknown to achieve those dreams. I say this because God places a dream a powerful vision in all of us!… I couldn’t stand still anymore I had to chase mine because it was eating me up alive within pushing the dream away the Lord placed in my mind and wrote on my heart when I was in my mothers womb.
Yes it is a risk, a very risky risk at times but the Lord already has the blue prints to guide you and to help you walk out that dream “vision” to bring Glory and Worship back unto Yahweh that will make a difference in this world through your daily lifestyle that Yahweh will surely use as a testimony towards others to be able see how Powerful Jesus Christ really is with His Mighty Love being on that cross over 2,000 years ago.
9 In their hearts humans plan their course,
but the Lord establishes their steps.
23 The Lord makes firm the steps
of the one who delights in him;
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
