There Is a Friend That Sticks Closer Than a Brother.

A little over 2 decades ago, I experienced a divorce, left my education unfinished, had no place to go, and ended up staying with my older brother and slaving at two minimum wage jobs for a total of 60 hours a week.  The work helped me get my mind off my problems, but it wasn't until I looked to that Friend that sticks closer than a brother that things began to look up for me.  One day, when I was in Section 8 housing and felt like I was out for the count, I would never finish my education, have a good job, or a nice family.  I turned to Yah my Creator in prayer.  He spoke to my heart and said, "Look to the North, the South, the East and the West, for everything the enemy of your soul has taken from you will be restored.

Now, I have a loving wife and son, I have completed my Master's Degree allowing me to teach a subject i enjoy in a Community College.  We're buying a 3 bedroom 2 bath house in an area that is close to everything we might need.  I am very well aware that He is faithful to keep His promises if we will but turn to Him and trust Him to keep His Word.
