Faith Fights Facts represents my strength, my struggle, my past and my future.
Every year on this day, October 13th I'm reminded of how great our God is and I promised to continue to share my testimony which propelled me into my destiny. I was faced with one of the most challenging times of my life; laid off during the aftermath of the 2008/09 financial crisis. I had stepped away from my corporate job to use my education and experience for a higher calling. Many people thought I had gone into the ministry to preach but I actually volunteered to lead a $6.5 million community center project for a faith based organization while also joining their staff to serve as their Facilities and Security Director for three locations. Some of my colleagues told me that I was crazy for leaving it all behind, but I stood on my faith and I knew that it was my calling.
After the project was completed, we moved ahead to secure our next capital project, but within several months, the financial reality of the economy begin to hit the non-profit sector, hence, I was unemployed. Recruiters were telling me it would take 1-2 years for me to find work but God turned my situation around and sent me on the course of my purpose. I believe that everything happens for a reason and even though our facts may not align to our faith, God is working out the details on our behalf.
There is no way I alone had the power and influence to go from unemployed to where I am today. I can't claim to be perfect but I serve a perfect God and through the difficult times he gives us strength...and hope...and courage. My setback was a setup for greatness, and not for myself but for his glory.
In the stillness of a hurtful moment where I felt like a failure, God revealed to me a strategic vision that would empower myself and others to achieve amazing results. He told me to Package my Passion and that same vision is still growing and generating tremendous value.
My obligation is to share my testimony with hope that others will believe that Faith Fights Facts...in your career, business, family and in life. No matter how hard or impossible your situation may be, please know that God ultimately has a plan and all you need to do is trust in him. I speak from experience and from my own faith that man cannot keep you down and you were intended for a purpose, his purpose.
I choose God as I went down a path of faith and in turn he choose me as he ordered my steps to greatness.
