  5. Emeasoba George:

    Nothing in our lives is arbitrary. I mean everything happens for a reason. That is to say alternatively, whatever you are experiencing presently is not coincidental and cannot be. Because, even the scripture says that everything works together for good of them that love God (Romans 8:28). Now that implies evidently, nothing goes for nothing in our lives or rather nothing happens for nothing. In other words, there is always a reasonable reason behind everything that happens in our lives. So come on, relax and never be bothered even if your present life seems ordinary to you. God can still use your ordinary life to bring extraordinary blessings into your life. Oh! yes, he (God) can do just that, only believe undoubtedly. -Emeasoba George
