"Running From and To His Calling" T.J. McKnight Jr. (Dedicated to the memory of Yvette McKnight and Maurel Domingo)
As a young boy, T.J. knew he was called to preach. His mother, his dreams, and even a grocery store clerk, spoke these words into his ears. And he ran from this calling, like Jonah. For a season. Through the love of a once-in-a-lifetime friendship, and the gentle love of a Mother, God moved in his heart and life so much, that he is no longer running from, but running to his calling. And it is a beautiful thing to behold. One Faith.This episode is dedicated to the memory of his beautiful Mama, Yvette McKnight, his loving friend, Maurel Domingo, and his loving wife, kids, family, and church family.

Quotes:"One of my favorite rappers, KB, he said 'King David , after he sinned, limped all the way to glory. I resonate with that.""He said 'why are you doing this? you are better than this'...he took my drink that I had and threw it away and said, 'I don't want to see you with another drink at this party'...""When I was on the floor crying my heart out... and just really struggling and depressed... I remember hearing a still small voice whisper in my ear, saying 'get up, everything is going to be alright'...and immediately I stopped crying... and I got up.. and I said to God..."References:Rapper KB, King David Kurt Franklin "The Last Jesus" -------------------------------------------------------------------For more inspiring stories:https://lettersfromhomepodcast.com/*FREE APP* Letters From Home Podcast has its own downloadable app., with all of our episodes in one easy place.
