“When God talks, you gotta listen,” he continued. “I swear, life is funny. Because some of the craziest things that happen to you end up being the thing that you needed most. And in this case, I honestly feel like God basically told me to sit down. When you’re moving too fast and you’re doing too much sometimes you can’t see the things that you’re meant to see.”
