Author Caution Note 

Pressure  can make you become stronger or make you vulnerable to accepting decisions that may ruin you in the nearest future. You must know that even though circumstances changes, how we react to it determines it’s outcome in our lives.

Sometimes you are tempted to think, feel and imagine that all roads is closed but little did you know that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel and how close you are to that end that you never knew of…

I just want you to know this morning or whatever the time is at where you’re reading this post from, that it doesn’t matter what your challenges are.. It can never be bigger that the God who created you. Challenges are event designed never to last forever even though you are tempted to think its taking ages to end.

It will fade away someday somehow if you don’t give up on yourself and God. I want you to know that if God can use anybody, He can use you. If God can bless anybody, He can bless you and if He can roll out the night to bring in the day, He can roll out your pains and roll in for you a blissful days.

It doesn’t matter what your needs could be money to start a new business, it could be job opportunity you are earnestly looking forward to or even child bearing issue. Subjecting your self to unnecessary pressure is never the best because most times it brings complications you never envisage.

You must constantly remind yourself that you’re not barren for instance you are looking for a child but only processing time for the arrival of your hero..Heroes are celebrities and celebrities takes their time to appear in any gathering.

People naturally wait to see them arrived.. In all of these, always remember that God already got your back covered. Maybe you don’t believe God exist but know that the air you breath is never and can never be a coincidence. Always assure yourself that God can do anything and yours can’t be an exception..
