sigh of relief.
After praying with her, we then
parted ways. She euphorically

made way back to campus.
While seated on my bed in my
room that evening, I reflected
on the events that transpired and
the thought of penning them
down was irresistible; for it
could surely inspire and
motivate someone.

Moral of the story.
We will always have reasons to
thank God for; even though
sometimes they might be
unknown to us.
In the story above, Brenda
focused solely on the phone,
forgetting the fact that her life
was spared and that because she
was alive, she bought the phone

that got lost and could still get
even better phones than that.
No matter what we go through,
always remember to thank God;
He’s forever faithful and does
nothing wrong and the only
perfect plans for us are His
God bless you mightily.
