Staying Focused


I created a Quick Study guide called The Way, The Truth, The Life back in 2020. Today as I looked over it, I found my mind wandering on different thoughts. I was finding it hard to focus. I know that I have to stay Focused.  I'm always thinking about my past. I've had a hard time getting over what I lost: a job, a house, a car, my good name. I messed up so bad legally that it's very difficult to come back from it.

I ask my self why am I so upset all the time? God has provided for me again and again. At one point I was homeless. I now and renting a room from a friend.  On top of all that I have mental and physical disabilities. I worry about money but I got Social Security. I tell myself that I don't want to be dependent on it. What will happen if it gets cut. I will be up the creek then.

The story of Noah tells us that we must be ready for a flood that may come in our life. Build our ark so we can be safe and survive.

There are times when I feel that I have gotten lazy. In the past I slept a lot. I thank God that I stopped that. Depression is always around that corner for me. I can't back slide but I must March forward.

I have my own business now where I am creating training videos and C#, Windows 10 apps. I can't let feelings of failing stop me.

Welcome to The Promise Online Baptist Church

Hello, My name is Brother Derrick W. Jackson and I am ecstatic and proud to show you my social media church / Online Church.  I am a new teacher of the word(Please note I have not been ordained nor do I have a minister's license but I have answered the call to spread the word) I am not new to the church and worshipping Jesus Christ.  I'm his human clay that he is molding every day, in other words I'm not perfect and have made a lot of mistakes that I do not want others to repeat. As the fires burn in California we pray for the victims.  Life shows us all the time that we are not always in control and bad things happen to good people.  A lot of times we scream out, "WHY GOD!!!!"  Several months ago I broke down on Labernum Avenue in Richmond, Virginia screaming, "He plays games with peoples lives!!"  God is not like man and remember he loves you unconditionally. And life does not turn out as we expect it but we know  "his will be done".

Today's Prayer 7/5/19

Lord I thank you for allowing me to see a new day. You are always there for me and right on time. I ask that you watch over me and my family. I thank you for the home that I am in. And the women that run this program. Lord I pray for those in California which was just hit by an earthquake. Also I pray for those migrants in the detention centers. Lord please lead our nation during these tough times. These and other blessing I pray. Amen
