Never Give Up: Pastor Michael Gatewood shares his life story

I love sharing positive uplifting stories.

So after following and watching my classmate Pastor Michael Gatewood on social media, I had to share his uplifting life story.

He prays and uplifts individuals, families and communities in his local Denver, Colorado community plus other communities throughout the world. He gives back to our beloved hometown of Flint, Michigan by pouring his heart and soul back into the community by ministering and uplifting others with his encouraging words during challenging times.

I truly believe God gives second and third chances.

I’m proud of him and I tell him to continue doing God’s work!

Pastor Michael Gatewood shares what God can do in your life if you have faith and believe.

According to Pastor Michael Gatewood, “it’s so exciting how God can change the life and the direction of a man’s destiny. In the beginning of my life I made a series of bad decisions, but I thank God that He doesn’t count those things against us. I was on drugs for many years and thought my life had no meaning. I was hopeless, but God heard my prayer.

From a man coming from Flint, Michigan, God has open doors and taken me to places that I could never have imagined; sitting in the room with Bishop TD Jakes, Bishop Paul S Morton and Bishop Dennis Leonard. It blows my mind that we have such a loving and caring God. This being said, there are a few things that I would like people to know about my life and God.”

  • Never give up, because God will never give up on you.
  • Trust the process of life and give yourself room for mistakes.
  • Never allow anyone to judge your future by your past.
  • Love those who surround you and love those even more that come against you.
  • In your darkest moments fall to your knees and pray.
  • Forgive yourself and others.
  • When you fall get back up dust yourself off and keep going.
  • They will not remember you for the foolishness when you where young, they will speak of you well in your later days.
  • Life is to short to hold a grudge.
  • Protect your heart from those whose only mission is to steal your Peace.
