David and Goliath

Posted by Curtis Drafton on June 5, 2010 at 11:04 PM

My landlords name is David Ormsby.


He moved to the U.S. in 1996 with just two bags in his hand. He had recently lost alot...almost everything in his hometown: the island of Jamaica and was homeless for over 3 months. Sleeping on the streets.

He moved to NY originally but received a job invite at Paul Quinn A.M.E. College: coincidence that I originally went there in 2006 pursuing my bachelors? Lol!


Dave then lost a lot of assests to people doing him wrong, but kept pursuing his goal of becoming an Accountant and kept being faithful.

He kept asking God the whole time: "God I keep being faithful, but nothing seems to be panning out... What  have I done to deserve always losing out?"  Sound familiar??

He said he turned to walk down the street and an old woman needed help, but EVERYONE else was just walking by as if she didnt exist. So keeping his morales in line, he put a smile on his face and assisted her. Once finished he smiled and told her to have a good day. She stopped him and said "your blessing is coming...just know that".

He says at that moment he heard a voice from heaven tell him: " Its okay... your time is coming".


To this day he has NOT looked back. He keeps trusting God. And though EVERYTHING hasnt been revealed or presented to him, he keeps his faith. God has blessed him with his Accounting Degree and a small business as well as 3 properties!


Keep the faith Dave and everyone else.... cause as Dave knows and the old folks used to say: He may not come when you want Him, but....."


Yeah, you know the rest! ;)
