A few years ago I was blessed enough to be able to buy a new truck — a ’15 Chevy Tahoe.
I still had my old ’07 Tahoe that I was going to sell (and believe me, I could’ve used the money), but something inside of me (GOD) kept prompting me to give the truck to my boy Datin ( @datin_tripled ) who was struggling at the time. “GIVE it to him!!?? Well, maybe I could ‘give’ it to him for cheap!” “YES, JUST GIVE IT TO HIM,” the voice said.
So I jumped on a call with Datin, blessed him with the truck and never looked back.
Fast forward a year later, pillow talking with the wife, I tell her, “Baby, I’m not sure I want to take our tour bus on our next run.” I had this event in Texas that I needed to get to. It was at least a 24 hour road trip from NY, and at the time our old Tour Bus was acting up.
In fact, it actually broke down on us a few times, leaving us stranded in the middle of no where. (Not fun). Wife responds, “I know. So what you gonna do?” “I don’t know, it ain’t like we can afford a new tour bus. I’ll have to figure it out somehow. But it’ll be okay”
I went to sleep later that night.
The VERY next day, my boy Andra Davis ( @allroadsopen ) — who just happened to be an NFL SUPERSTAR that I knew for less than a YEAR at the time — calls me up and says, “Yo Unc, how fast can you make it to Denver, CO?” “I don’t know. Why? What’s up!?”. He asked again, “How fast can you make it up here?” “Shoot, how fast do you need me up there?” He then responded, “I feel like God told me to bless you with the BEAST last night, so get down here and pick it up!” I was speechless and I thought to myself, “Man, God is so good”. ——
A lot of people don’t realize that in order to RECEIVE you have to be willing to GIVE. But, when you DO give, you can’t expect to receive.
I hope you understand me.
