Hi everyone. It's been 4 months since my last blog post. A lot has changed. Life is still moving forward for me. This pandemic hasn't stopped me. I started working again to keep up with the bills. My birthday came and left. I've also started a plant-based diet. However, the most exciting update I have for you is this. I proposed and she said "YES". Soon we'll be walking down the aisle and saying "I DO". And I just felt like sharing life's moments with you!
I never thought I'd be getting ready for marriage in the middle of a pandemic, but only God can set the stage for all this. Through hours of praying, Bible studying, and reading great books on relationships, I can honestly say "I'm ready".
It's a wonderful feeling to have someone who sees Christ living in you and also understands me, when I say, "I was once broken".
We meet once a week every Sunday. I'll travel from Coney Island, New York, through Public transportation, towards Newark, New Jersey. She'll pick me up at Newark, in an environment where homelessness, depression, and addiction has really taken a hold on many.
It's a constant reminder of my life before Christ. Many of whom are reading this don't know me personally. I once suffered from homelessness, depression, and I was addicted to alcohol. It wasn't a pretty sight. It was a vicious cycle of chaos and darkness for me. And no matter how much I tried, I couldn't be set free of it. (And I tried everything) Until I gave my life to Christ. Until someone asked me "do you accept Christ into your life?" and I replied, "Yes, I DO". That's when I felt set free.
The change in me didn't happen overnight. It took years for His light to shine. I did fall a couple of times, but His grace was and still is ever more sufficient.
To my friends, family, and future wife. I and well, alive, and set free, because His grace is sufficient. I am here and excited about sharing life's moments with you because Jesus set me free.
Thank you all for your continued prayers
