Life

How would you rate life….

Life is full of surprises. life is all about how you welcome everything you meet on the way. when you wake up in the morning, what resolution do you make for the 24hrs you are hoping to exit?

The decision you make each morning, will govern your thoughts the whole day, will direct your emotions for the day…….

So that means the kind of decisions you make each day determines whether you will accomplish your plans by the end of 30days of the month, and whether you will meet your Resolutions at the end of the 12months making a year.
Therefore Think positive towards your Goals and Resolutions NO-MATTER the kind of environment posed by your enemy.

Each day walk with your Head High being confident that you will meet your targets before 24hours are done.

Time is the most precious thing you can have in this world. Utilize it well well!

Time is the best sacrifice you can give to a friend.

and Ultimately, Time is the best offering you can give to God Almighty, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ……!

It feels amazing to spent time in the presence of the Lord.

Try this and you will never be the same again.!

Living good is all about how close you are with the Lord God Almighty.!!
