I believe that I was at war with not only myself at the present moment but I was fighting for my future self. So when I heard the voice of God, I heard him say “CHOOSE THIS DAY WHO YOU WILL SERVE“ it definitely wasn’t easy. I mean I quit smoking weed and having sex all at the same time.

"Stay authentic. However you were brought up whether it was in school or in the streets take pride in that. Wherever you came from God put you there for a reason and he already had your story planned out. Live it up and enjoy life. Nothing is impossible unless it’s being in a higher position than God. You can conquer anything."
