  5. Emeasoba George:

    Have you been or rather are you being bothered about your future? If yes, then you've been a worrywart all the while. However, you've got to stop being worried about your future or tomorrow. Because, you don't have to worry about it and you don't equally need to know what the future holds for you. Rather, all you need to know is the one who holds the future right inside the palms of his hands. And, the person in question is nobody else but Almighty God. Believe you me, once you acknowledge him (God Almighty). Your future must surely become worthwhile. For, acknowledgement of God as the holder and controller of the future guarantees and leads to enviable success or future. Do remember, because he (God) lives, you can face and maximize the future ahead of you. Unless you think otherwise. ~Emeasoba George
