Hello! Welcome to my website and my “About me” page! I am thrilled that you have joined me here today. It is my hope that you will become a regular visitor here. Now, let me tell you about myself. My name is Horace Williams Jr. I am a single, Christian man who loves the Lord Jesus with all his heart. I am also the oldest of five siblings; I have two amazing brothers and two Godly, beautiful sisters.
In 2010 I suffered a life-changing stroke that could have taken my life. My entire left side was paralyzed due to a blood vessel rupturing in my brain! However, God has given me a second chance, and I desire to glorify Him with my life. My love for Christ deeper every day, and I want to share my faith with others. I pray you find help, Biblical inspiration and are encouraged during your visits here.
God never gave up on me
I became a born-again Christian at the age of 11. I grew up in a Christian home with God serving parents. However, I was not seeking after God. Instead of living for Christ, I was living for myself… doing what I wanted. I am so thankful that God never gave up on me! I now understand it was because He wanted a relationship with me. In my mind being a Christian meant I always had a “get out of hell free” card. As a result, despite several trials and tests earlier in my life, I only sought God when I desperately needed Him. However, I now understand that He wants to be a part of every aspect of my life. I used to think if I could make enough money, everything would be okay.
At the time of my stroke, I had a beautiful home, car, and well-paying job. I thought I had made it! Then the stroke occurred while at the office; leaving my entire left side paralyzed. I could not walk or even sit up in the hospital bed for weeks. A lot of good those monies were doing me now! I was helpless, humbled, and broken.
Nightmares to Non-stop Praying
Every night I had trouble sleeping in the hospital. There were several nights I was haunted by crazy dreams due to the brain injury, I’d wake up scared and in cold sweats, not even sure where I was at times. I would pray for daylight to come just to hear the nurses voices. I struggled to remember Psalm 23 from my childhood and quote in my head …”The Lord is my Shepherd” until I would drift off to sleep. It was during my time in the hospital and rehab facility that I began to realize my life was about God and how He wants to use me. He is the one that gave me the talents and aptitude to be successful. Everything I have is because He blesses me with it. He chose me to be a child of His many years ago to glorify Him, encourage other believers, and help others come to know Christ as their Lord and Savior.
Why I am Here
I love writing and enjoy helping others, so that is the main reason for this website. My hope here is to encourage, enlighten, and even educate us about the power of prayer, faith in Jesus, and God’s undeserved grace. I will be open in sharing what I have learned through all the pain and daily struggles to live a fruitful Christian life. I will also share with you; bible study notes, and scriptures verses that encourage me each day and night throughout my recovery. You may even see a few blog posts and the latest book updates here as well.
Every day, I am recovering both physically and spiritually, and with God’s help, I am excited to see His will and plan for my life fulfilled. I hope you will join me on my new journey and we can encourage one another!
