Cousin, what can I say! The Christian that I got to know. The changed man that created in you. A new creation in Christ. Is what I saw in you! I saw God working a mighty suddenly miracle I’m your life! I saw u trying your hardest. To make things right with the Good Lords in your life. One day you called my phone on FB. And we talked deeply. About mawmaw Gency… Your Beloved Aunt, MY Beloved Granny! You tiled me how she had great talks about Jesus! And , we both settled in our souls about how much we dearly loved her. And u said u were thankful of all the times she took out the bible to show u the truth in the Word. U shared with me just how much u loved Jesus and going to church! And how u were trying to quit smoking. I asked u if u wanted me to pray with u. U said yes! So I prayed and asked God to set u free from Nicotine. The power of God came over u and set u free from cigarette’s … U told me how u felt Gods power. Set u free. The next day. U took a video. And showed me on video. How u still hadn’t smoked your last 2 smokes! That God had truly set u free. U broke the 2/smokes u had left! And videoed yourself. Breaking them and throwing them in the trash! Glory to God!
Jesus saved u and was in the process of setting u free. I’m sorry that I didn’t get to tell u One last time that I am so thankful that u chose Jesus. And that I really wanted to see u and go to church with u!
I Love u cousin! And u will be missed! See u soon in heaven! For I know you are there! C u soon James!
