Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Emeasoba George:

    Never be bothered that your life/journey on earth will end/cease someday. But, always be mindful that your life/journey on earth won't/can't start afresh. After all, anyone who is down already ought not to fear to fall down anymore. So, never fail to positively use up the time that you've got/been given by God. Because, whether you like it or not, your lifetime will surely elapse/expire/cease someday. Oh! Yes, and what I'm writing about is not a matter of choice.

  2. Emeasoba George:

    Grace is simply, a free and unmerited favour from God. Permit me to tell you that, grace is synonymous with destiny. In the sense that, it's also a God-given gift and which is meant to be realized and utilized within a given period of time just like destiny otherwise, it will surely elapse/decline/subside or even lost outrightly. Oh! Yes, God's grace is just for a while and never forever. So, you've got to acknowledge/appreciate/utilize/maximize it (God's grace) to the fullest. Unless you want it to be withdrawn/taken away from you sooner than you even expect it. And mind you, if/when God's grace is taken away/withdrawn from you. Believe me or don't, you're as good as done for, until it's restored back to you. Because, living without God's grace is like trying to live/survive without God himself. And I guess, you know what that entails don't you?
