Notes

Concentrate on this sentence

If anyone is a testimony to this..IT IS ME! I’m waiting for my BETTER SOMETHING 😉

‘ To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did. ‘ When God takes SOMETHING from your grasp, He’s not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive SOMETHING BETTER. Concentrate on this sentence… ‘The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you. ‘ Something good will happen to you today; something that you have been waiting to hear.
