Back was against the wall, He looked out for me, He heard my cry and rescued me as I never let a day go by and not realize we are blessed!  For your Spiritual Sports Segment on Rhema Gospel Radio, I’m C.E.E.J.A.Y.

A loss and a win all in the same hearing!  UFC heavyweight Alistair Overeem was denied his request for a fighting license by the Nevada State Athletic Commission however comma the win came with him being allowed to re-apply in nine months versus the standard twelve months.
