"They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom and tell of your power" Psalm 145:11
Life have a tendency to bring unexpected and sometime unwanted trails. Those trails are sometime stages or platforms that God uses to magnify His glory to show others His kingdom. As believers of Christ, God encourage us to share our obstacles with others to give them hope as well as reassurance that God is always faithful to His word and promises.
P.U.S.H. would love to hear about how you were faced with opposition and how God blessed you during your time in need.

Hello my name is Abdul, also known as "King." As a child, from what I can remember, I grew up very poor, no I'll take that back, I grew up broke. I was my grandmother's favorite. I was like her 11th child. Although, I didn't have much growing up but I can say I had plenty of love around me. I was always welcomed to get out the cold or to get something to eat if I needed it.
I turned to the street life early in my life because I was tired of being broke, not having much. I was 13 years old before I knew what new school clothes were. I would usually get clothes that were passed down. Even though I had a street lifestyle, I was never really successful at it because I couldn't save money and I had to much of a heart.
In the year 1994 I got locked up in a youth house. There were guys around me who would discuss their beliefs and I would be in awe. Having been brought up in a more Spanish than black house hold, hearing them speak about the black man being God peaked my curiosity. These guys considered themselves 5 percenters, in the nation of God's and Earth (Gods meaning black men, earth meaning black women and let me be clear when I say black men and women, I mean all people of color). By the end of 1995, I started to get lessons from one of the guys who was in the youth house with me. When he began to give me lessons and I didn't know my lessons I would get a beat down. After learning my "supreme mathematics and supreme alphabet," I received the name King. King stands for "King Victorious God Allah."
For me, King meant someone who moves justly and wisely. Someone who rules his surroundings with knowledge, wisdom, and understanding.
As I continue on my journey, I'm beginning to understand more about Christianity and building my Faith in Jesus Christ. I hope and pray to become a better man, a God fearing and understanding man. I hope to have a form of a bond/connection with my son that I wish I had with my father. I hope to love just as much as I am loved. I hope to inspire and lastly I hope to give my better half 40 plus years of happiness.
This is a small testament in to my life. Although I don't feel a change over me, I know God is still working on me. God Bless
The Bible states that life and death is in the power of your tongue (Proverbs 18:21). You can hear certain things but very rare do we digest it well. Its like you chew just to chew if that makes sense?
In 2019 I asked God to promote me in my career and expose me more. Well that life and death IS in the power of your tongue. Of course it doesn't happen right away but no need to get discouraged. You have to trust the process and understand God didn't bring you this far just to drop you off in the mud. He is a man of his word.
In 2020 I was promoted right on time and in the right season in His time, not mine. Remember that's the one thing we have to get comfortable with in order to see the fruits of his blessings.
Fast forward, when I mentioned I wanted more exposure, I was selected out the blue to be a feature in our company magazine. Look at God's random surprise. I didn't have any connections in HR or even knew that anyone there knew me but God did. I was completely in shocked and at first I said "why me" and I heard God say "why not you?" I forgot what I asked God, about how I wanted more exposure and He said "this is your opportunity you asked for." God wowed me on this; to be selected for a fortune 500 company.
Life and death is in the power of your tongue so please be careful what you speak over your life because it does become a reality. Stay blessed and I hope to inspire someone to just speak great things over your life and be kind to yourself because God got you always.
Good morning everyone, I don’t usually do this, but I wanted to share with you some thoughts. I’ve been working on my craft and business for quite a while, It’s really paying off. Things are moving in the right direction at a rapid pace. Some amazing things have happened over the last 10 to 15 days that have really been emotional and overall just amazing. I have been asked to speak at four conferences teaching about financial literacy. The best part of this is not the free first class flights, free hotel stays, or even even how much I was offered to do this but that I get to help others succeed and learn about financial literacy. I can help them get ahead by providing them with what I have learned over these years. Just basically being able to help someone to gain knowledge, that will help them get a head. Never thought that I would be teaching anyone, let alone a room full of people who have paid a fee to listen and here I am today! It’s just amazing to me. This may seem like a small thing to you guys but this actually have done something to me and for me. The joy I feel right now is out of this world. Again, I just wanted to share this with you. Of course there’s more but this is the most important to me have a great day be safe. And like my uncle always says “leave more than you take!”
