  1. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    As a human it is normal for you to get annoyed sometimes. Yes! but you should not be irritable (don't be easily annoyed or angered). For instance, if someone says are you stupid? to your own self or to someone else around you. You don't have to be annoyed. Because, that is just a question and which you are expected to respond Yes or No or better still keep quiet alternatively. But most times, when such statement is made, many people often misconcept or mistake it to be an insult. Anyway, take note of that. And mind you, irritability is uncalled for and often catastrophic. In fact, excessive anger or irritability can cost you your own life. Thus, desist from it (irritability). I mean, don't be tetchy. That is to say, don't be easily annoyed or irritated, come what may (no matter what happens). ~Emeasoba George

    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.

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
