Let's find out
what God does to connect the dots to answer a 3 year old prayers for
When God helped me protect a 3 year old from a
violent serial molester
WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU OR FORSAKE
YOU! So please walk with me now as I
share another slice of my journey of my life
with you and discover that in the deepest moments of our despair
that God is always with us and He will move Heaven and earth just to
get close enough to tell you that "He will never leave you or
forsake you and if He is with you who can stand against
"I will never
leave you or forsake you." Hebrews
I believe that
God intentionally puts us in other peoples lives to help them so
that their silent voices will be heard. Even if it is from
a 3 year old over a thousand miles away!'
I met this little
angel when she was just 3 years old under very
shocking, frightening and very dangerous
circumstances.. (full story in book) I was a
thousand miles from home visiting my wife's family during the
Christmas holidays. Both of my wife's brothers were telling me that
something terrible was going on every night.
could hear this little angel yell the words "stop it" to her step
grandfather when her stepfather would go into her room.
And everybody was afraid to stand up to this man because he loved to
fight and beat up people. I was told that he could not get off
work on the river boats for days unless it was a emergency. Its
important to know that before I met my wife, that she had
signed over all legal rights to her daughter to her mother over
a year or two before this time.
Since my wife had no
legal rights to her daughter, we had no plans to take my wife's
daughter back with us when we went back home after the
I just wanted to
protect her! I will always remember that day when everybody ran
out of the living room screaming their step fathers
name, "Oh my God!
He came home early on
emergency leave because I took my wife's daughter to the
hospital against my wife's mothers wishes to be examined
the day before! And here was this big man (over 50
pounds heavier than me) getting out of the car about to come
through the front door, the day of reckoning was here for me for
making a stand for this little angel. .
This 3 year old
little angel and I were the only ones left in the room.
That's when she came up to me where I was sitting and put her
little hand in my hand, looked up at me with tears in her eyes
and asked me if I was going to leave her too. I knew that she was
asking me to protect her against this big violent man. I stood
up from the couch as I said a silent prayer to God and asked
him to be with me one more time and to give me the
strength to protect her
I knew that I had only
seconds before he came charging and yelling through the front
door to hurt and intimidate me. It was one of the most
intense and scary moments for me just waiting next to
her. It was not knowing if he had brought a
gun with him.
hear Satan whisper his words of fear in my mind, telling me to
run out of the room like the rest of the family, that knew
better than to stand up to this violent and dangerous animal. I
quietly promised God and myself that if I die this day trying to
protect her that this little angel's silent voice will be
In a instant the front door flew open, with this
big violent man screaming and charging towards me to beat
me up like he has done so many times in the
past. Yelling "What's this I hear about you calling
me a _______?" I had to let go of this
little angels little hand as I knew that I was going to have to
physically defend her as well as myself.
For a split second, I became confused when
this big man started screaming that I called him
names, then God instantly gave me the clarity of mind and
spirit and instantly revealed to me that he is trying to trick me so
that he can run over to me and start beating on me while I was
confused by his remarks, with me trying to explain that I never
called him any names.
asked God earlier that He give me the same courage that He gave
I stood my
ground as I put this little angel behind me, I knew she has put all
her hopes and prayers that God will use me to help protect her from

to say a word at this point that would make a difference to stop

And just like
that, without saying a word to me, this big man instantly sat down
on the couch beside me, and then said to me,
to be your friend" and held up his hand to shake mine from the
sitting position on the couch for me to acknowledge his offer of
My wife who was
watching this attack on me from the next room with her brothers,
came up to me and said that in her entire life she has never seen
her stepfather back down from anyone before, let alone stop in his
tracks and sit down on the couch to offer me his hand as a sign of

wasen't me, that caused him to instantly sit down as he came in

stepfather went into the kitchen after this emotional and very
draining experience from Almighty God's hand coming down, and
defeating Satan's evil plot to destroy this little girls life. God
brought my wife's stepfather to a place of repentance as he sat
down at the table, as he put his face in both of his hands
crying uncontrollably, sobbing, saying that he was so sorry for
"All the glory
goe's to an Awesome God for never leaving me or forsaken
it by accident or a stroke of luck that my wife's stepfather was
literally brought down to sitting on the couch with his hand out as
a peace offering? We cannot be blessed for taking away
God's glory. If you were there, you would know it was a
supernatural experience from God that protected
very important that we understand that this had nothing to do
with me, All the glory goes to God! I did nothing but be obedient to
God's will and try to protect this little girl from harm.
This was just one of many God moments in my
life, not just where God has delivered me from harm as I
was trying to help someone else. But in the way He connects all the
dots to bring about a single victory. Even thou I include everything
that has happened to me in helping this angel over many days and
over coming many obstacles and adversities as just one blessing of
over 400 major blessings in my life. You have to understand that
many of the dots that God connected in this story has not even began
until the days following this incident.
Was it worth
standing up for this little angel in the face of great physical
I would do it
again in a heart beat, and so would you if you ask God to give you
the courage and the strength to carry out His Will.
Many things happened after
this violent encounter. I was brought to my knees with my
tear filled face to the floor asking God to use me to help this
little angel again. After this incident, my wife's mother
and her stepfather who had legal rights to her
daughter was hiding this little angel in the hills until we
left to go back home, They knew that time and money was running
out for us because I had to go back to work a thousand
miles away. (Here's my little angel and me and my
first wife to the right with the white
It's never about asking God why have you
forsaken me? God never leaves us, It's all about giving God
the glory that He will humble your enemy beneath your feet as a foot
stool for all to see, that God will never leave you or forsake
you if you do it His way.
I was so excited with the
way God helped me against so many obstacles and against all
odds in this slice of my life that I wrote a story on
everything that happened titled: "She's not mine!
This situation was so surreal to me, I felt like I was in the movie
Deliverance. From the deep foliage that grew so
thick because of the River. And my wife's
daughter was calling my wife her sister and calling
her grandmother (My wife's mother) Mom. All the glory goes to
God and you will know this after you read the rest of the
story in much greater detail in my book. "You will see that God
is a God of perfect timing!' "God has my
back so bring it on!
I believe that it was no
accident or coincident on how I met my first
wife and how God brings each one of us together so
that we can be used to do His will! I was suppose to meet my sister
in a night club and we were going to catch up on how things were
going in our lives. As I was waiting, a friend asked me to sit down
at his table and he introduced me to a beautiful woman who was
leaving tomorrow morning to go back to her home town over a thousand
Lets see how God connects all the dots to answer this little
angel's prayer for help.
God does not use
or depend on coincidences or a chance meeting to answer our
prayers or to carry out His divine plan.
Again, I have not
mentioned the many different senarios and obstacles that God has
triumphed over to answer this little angels prayers. What would
have happened if I was not obedient to God's will in helping this
little girl. You will see when I finish this story later, that I had
many chances to say, I did enough now let someone else handle this
problem. I believe that God blesses those who are obedient and who
don't say they did enough.
Lets see how some of
the dots were already connecting to answer this little girl's
I was suppose to meet
my sister in the night club that night.
What would have
happened if I did not go into that night club on that particular
evening to meet my sister?
meeting between me and my future wife would not have occurred, since
I would not have been there that night.
My first wife
and I would not have been married and she would have went back home
a thousand miles from here the very next morning never to hear
from her again.
Back to the same
circumstances that have been going on for quite a while, were
things would not have changed for this little angel because
Satan had put fear into their hearts to prevent them from standing
up for her.
And then after
all this and more, God still connected many more dots to answer this
little angel's prayers against all odds and obstacles!
As I look
back on that fateful day that I had met my wife all because I was
suppose to meet my sister at that particular night club.
Did I get a
chance to catch up on how my family was doing?
My sister never showed up that night...
Reverend Michael Cartwright
"A righteous man may have many troubles, but
the Lord delivers him from them all." Psalm
Do we have the
honor that pleases God? I believe that I did
the best that I could. I could have done nothing just like everybody
else in my wife's family. It was my wife's own brothers who told me
that they suspected something horrible was going on at night. I
literally had to tear this little angel's arms away from my wife's
mothers arms because she would not let me take my wife's daughter to
the hospital to be checked out. Just look at her in the picture
below after this ordeal, it was worth it.
I did not just
take this little angel to the hospital to be examined by
doctors and child psychiatrist just because they suspected abuse.
And since nobody could say that they ever saw any abuse, they only
heard what could be abuse. I had to also be careful that my wife's
brothers were not just making any of this up just to get back
at their stepfather for his abusive attitude towards
If that is all you have as evidence and you do what
I did by taking her to the hospital for test. It is a good way for
someone to litigate against you in Court and win. You have to take
it to God in prayer and he will guide you and protect you. (here's a
picture of this little angel after this dramatic ordeal, God will
protect and bless you for helping the weak and for not letting any
I believe It is not by accident or
coincident that God has given each believer certain unique spiritual
gifts to use as a blessing in their faith walk and
one of the most precious gift that he has given me is the
spirit of discernment which has never
and ask God for the spirit of discernment, It allow you to see the
truth in people's hearts. I have seen and heard things from people,
that it would be impossible for them to openly admit these things
without the power of God working in our lives. And it was no
different when my wife's stepfather was talking to me that day and
the things that he did openly admit to us
that he was molesting her.
we were also told by human resources that he was also molesting
boys as well. It was really sick and shocking to learn how he was
torturing this little angel in the bathroom before he
molested her in the bedroom.
The rest of the
story is in my book,
is incredible to see God's hand in everything and being there every
moment with us. It seemed like everything was against me. Including
having any legal rights to stand on.But I was not alone because God
never left me or forsaken me one time and if He is with me who can
stand up against me. No one!
"I will never leave you or forsake you."
