Overcoming Adversity – Dancing with Death

The older I get, the more I realize that I am an overcomer. Truly I must have a guardian angel. I was hit by a truck while I was riding a bicycle as a young boy and survived the accident. Numerous time in high-school and college, I was with strange, misbehaving “friends” who jeopardized and endangered my life, which I survived.

As a minister, I have traveled to war-torn nations and countries in serious conflict and passing through calamity, wherein others such as myself were martyred. Yet God graciously spared my life and preserved me from destruction.

Last year I was hit by a drunk driver on a Tuesday afternoon before 5pm (the driver received her 2nd DUI in less than two years and was imprisoned), after which my car was totaled and I nearly killed.

Nevertheless through all of these hardships I pass and continue by God’s grace to overcome. My mom was a drug addict and alcoholic throughout my childhood, she having eventually died a premature death due to substance abuse.

Then because of the torment and difficulty living with my stepmother (who I didn’t get along with until 11th grade), I contemplated killing myself at the age of 12. Thankfully, I pulled myself together and purposed to do something great with my life rather than succumb to fear, intimidation, and mediocrity.

Therefore today I am a living testimony, having passed through innumerable trials and tribulations, to stand before you today tried, tested, and free from fear and failure.

Only believe and you too will experience the goodness of your Creator and a glorious breakthrough in your life!

Turn every mess into a message; your pain into power; and your hurt to heal humanity.

Blessings,

Paul
