    Do you know? No matter how bad things appear to you currently. God can still make it up to become good enough. Do you also know? No matter how miserable your condition seems to you. God can still make it enviable. That is to say alternatively, no condition or matter is too difficult for God to interfere and intervene too. I mean, nothing is impossible with God SCRIPTURE REFERENCE ( Luke 1 : 37). Oh! yes, impossibility doesn't exist in God's dictionary i.e. the scripture. Besides, he (God) doesn't change and cannot change come what may. But guess what? He (God) can effortlessly and unquestionably change anything and anybody at any time. However, living faith and patience are expected of you, in order for him (God) to turn around your condition or life for the better or for the best. - Emeasoba George
