From April 1995 to June 1996 I attempted to gain employment as a police officer, but God allowed every door to be shut. I was told off record that one department turned me down because I was a Christian, another department said my previous employer wanted to remain anonymous, but said, "I was the worst." I tried selling houses with a little success and I tried professional bowling with no financial success. I had friends tell me to not be so open about my faith and there were times that I almost started to take their advice, but Gods Word prevailed; Matthew 10:33-34; "Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven. But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven."
ONE MORE DAY - From the book
ONE MORE DAY
Did you ever wonder, when you go to bed,
If the prayer that you're prayin', is worth bein' said.
Well I used to wonder, so I gave God a test,
I prayed for a million, as I laid to rest.
Then all through the night, as I laid sound asleep,
I knew God was workin', to prove He's not cheap.
A sweepstakes, a lotto, an estate in my name,
The list could be endless with fortune and fame.
I'll give to the homeless, I'll give to the poor,
I'll give to the Churches and charities galore.
For if there is a God, who could pass such a test,
I'll know I'm not lucky, just prayerfully blessed.
Then all of a sudden, the sun hit my eyes,
A new day had found me and before I could rise,
A voice in the distance, shook the bed where I lay,
"Your prayer is answered, you get One More Day!"
