April 15, 2022 Category: Commentary Posted by:

Many times life is filled with ups and downs. Times when we are uncertain and unsure how we may have ended up alone; what tomorrow will bring us that will be prosperous and what we feel is good.

As things happen in your life, it will not always be on the upside —  life has many turns and during  those turns, we tend to go down.  And when we are down, we cannot figure out how we got here and why we must take this journey called a lesson to be learned.  Then we realize, that taking a chance listening to the word of GOD, can make a major impact in one’s life.  

Taking a chance on allowing life to fall in place without being frustrated, or too fast in movement where we miss the mark. Sometimes we have to slow down and  wait our turn to learn that lesson in life, so when that time comes, as a result of taking a chance — we can see the prosperity, feel its accomplishments, and  carry those golden nuggets of success that gives us excitement that prepares us  to race into a new goal that has been set.  

Taking that chance opens so many doors.  Taking a chance allows you to show the world that you got this and gives GOD all the glory in knowing that you allowed Him to drive your life because He holds all  the chances able to be taken.  He has the master plan!

So, try taking a chance! Then hit me up and let me know how was the outcome and how now are you feeling? Until next time…. PEACE!
