I will make your forehead like the hardest stone, harder than FLINT. Do not be afraid of them or terrified by them, though they are a rebellious people.” (Ezekiel 3:9 NIV)
Everybody in the world know the negativity around our city(Flint, MI). I think it’s on every horrible city list that’s out. I can say that it has dried up a little. The life has been sucked out due to all the negativity around this place. But I can say on the flip side a lot of successful people have been created here.
Today I want to highlight my friend Ashley Green(Adams) born and raised in Flint, Michigan. Graduated from Southwestern High school. Bachelors degree from Michigan State. Masters degree from the University of Toledo and now her Doctorate from Western Michigan University(insert high praise). She currently work at Michigan State University as the Director of Scholarships and fellowships. She’s married and have two beautiful children. On the board of numerous organizations. Plus she has been an active member at Ebenezer Ministries for over 20 years!!!
I am definitely bragging on her because she deserve it. She has worked super hard. But also to show that no matter where you come from. No matter the situation you are in. You can be successful!! Don’t let anybody tell you that you can’t be. Was this road easy for her. Heck no!! I’m sure most days her Faith kept her when everything else was telling her to quit. When people were telling her it couldn’t be done. When her husband needed her, when the kids were going crazy. But nothing worth having in this life come easy. It take hard work and dedication!! Put your trust in God and let him lead the way. He will make a way out of no way!! Just trust and believe!! God said that we will have an abundant life!! He didn’t say be depressed, miserable or bitter!! Have the faith to expect all of God’s greatness for your life and watch things fall into place❤️
