I want to represent possibilities. I want to represent the idea that you can do anything that you want in life. There are so many different paths that we can take; every accomplishment has stemmed from the transmission of ideas, and the willingness to carry them out. It’s never too late to step out and try. Nothing can stop a person with the right mental attitude from accomplishing their goals.

I am not a stranger to failure. Much of my young adult life was spent making poor decisions and having to live with the consequences of those actions. I did not know my true identity which is why I found myself searching for answers in all of the wrong places. At the age of 22 I found myself locked inside of a jail cell facing more time than I could count. I knew from that moment forward that my life would never be the same. I had no vision for the future because I couldn’t see past my circumstances, but God had something much larger in store.

As crazy as it may sound, going to prison for five years is one of the best things that has ever happened to me. This is where God got a hold of my heart and transformed my life from the inside out. I had no choice but to grow up inside of those walls. This place of captivity changed the way that I viewed myself and the world around me.

No matter what you may be going through, rest in the fact that there is a purpose through every season, and a promise behind your pain. There is a spirit within every single one of us that can overcome any obstacle. God will use your decisions good and bad to point you in the direction of your calling. I encourage you to stand firm in the middle of your struggles knowing that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
