“The Journey That Manifested Purpose and Promise”



Surgical procedures come with limited guarantees based upon the illness or issue experienced. Still, you must go into the operating room with full trust in the one who will yield the knife and hope for the best outcome. While I encountered a number of physical ailments in my life that required me to be cut, nothing could have ever equipped me for the spiritual incisions that had to be made. 

What happens when the physician scheduled to cut you has the scalpel that will change your life forever? How do you cope with pain unexplained, unrecognizable, and unattended? When do you decide that you have hurt long enough just because of the mass that has become attached? The Cutting that Made Me Whole is a story of multiple tragedies that led me to infinite triumphs – it is my story. It is the uncut and unadulterated truth of how I endured betrayal, heartbreak, and loss. It is also the written testament of how I survived them all. 


Sometimes, medicine and prayer are not the only things you need. We must all prepare ourselves for the surgical removal of whatever is keeping us from our destiny. We must regain our focus in spite of the blood we have lost. Overall, we must be willing to accept what God allows via that same scalpel. It was that surgery that rendered The Cutting that Made Me Whole.
