We all have greatness inside of us, as well all are created in the image of God. We have to dig deep sometimes to find it, explore it and develop it. Many obstructions and obstacles will come before that greatness at times, nonetheless, we must endure and make our greatness a success for us. If the obstacle is a label placed on us by a society such as the color of our skin, we can yet be the best that we can be and that is the victory. No weapon formed against us shall prosper when we believe and especially if the weapon is inside us having been grilled into our belief system.

My story exemplifies self-discovery, redemption, revival and transformation. We all travel different roads, with medical and psychiatric afflictions, regardless, as victims of incest, child abuse, rape, domestic violence, alcohol and drug addiction, military sexual trauma, we are victorious if we dig inside and discover our own personal greatness. These afflictions are just difficulties we can overcome and defeat in some measure. Not everyone wants riches and fame, but to fulfill a greatness of peace within ourselves is prosperity, and dreams no matter how small or large can come true. I'm just a nobody trying to tell everybody that we are all somebody and we can do all things through Christ who gives us strength to move forward and ahead on a positive road. Just believe in yourself.
