Examples of Besides in a Sentence

  1. Emeasoba George:

    True Love always protects, it always trusts, it always hopes and it always perseveres. Reference 1st Corianthians 13:7. The scripture says all that in black and white. And that is to say evidently and obviously, every true love must be protective of his or her spouse or partner. Besides, every true love must be trustworthy. In other words, he or she should always trust his or her partner or spouse and should be trusted equally. Moreover, every true love should be hopeful always and not at all hopeless, no matter what. Also, every true love is expected to persevere all through tough times and never to give up or quit. Now that is just proven attributes of true love. The burning question is. Do you have the above characteristics in your relationship or marriage? If your answer is NO. Then, you've got to have a rethink and afterwards just imbibe and portray all the above attributes. For, that is just what is expected of you and nothing less than that. -Emeasoba George

  2. Emeasoba George:

    There can't be an output without an input. Besides, you can't climb a ladder with your two hands in your pockets. And so, in order to become successful in life you ought to get busy i.e. you have to apply courage, hard work, determination and persistence simultaneously. ~Emeasoba George

  3. Emeasoba George:

    Your confession is bound to be your possession sooner or later. Besides, every creation including you is a product of the spoken word of God. Now that signifies, you ought to use your mouth positively by professing/confessing positivities/possibilities and not at all negativities/impossibilities. Listen up, God knows what/all you need but he expects/demands you to undoubtedly/emphatically profess it/them over and over again to his hearing/ears until you possess it/all of them. Yes, even the scripture says in (Psalms chapter 81 : 10). It says, open up your mouth wide and then he (God) will fill it up with positivities/possibilities/realities. That's just what the scripture says and that evidently indicates, you should use your mouth ceaselessly to confess/profess positivities/possibilities and never negativities/impossibilities. Because, your mouth is equally meant/made for confessing/professing positivities/possibilities and not just only for mere eating/talking. Therefore come on, hence forth go ahead/dare to seal/solidify your faith with the words of your mouth.

  4. Quinnipiac University:

  5. Emeasoba George:

    Your actions ought to be louder than your words. Moreover, your actions do tell people more about you rather than your words. Besides, it is the collection of your actions that will eventually beget your reputation and never your words. -Emeasoba George
