Examples of presently in a Sentence

  1. Emeasoba George:

    Do you live for mere survival or for legacy? Anyway, you ought to live for legacy rather than for mere survival or existence. Because, the legacy that you will succeed in leaving presently will eventually speak for you perpetually. I mean, your legacy is bound to outlive you many years after your demise. Thus, you've got to live to leave behind you positive legacies and never negative legacies.

  2. Emeasoba George:

    Whether you are rich or not presently, someday it will not matter anymore. Yes! someday there will be no more sunrises, no more minutes, hours or days. All the things you have acquired over the years, whether treasured or forgotten will be transfered to someone else. Oh! yes, your wealth, fame, intelligence and power will be irrelevant someday. That is to say, someday it will no longer matter what you own or what you are owed. Even, your grudges, resentments, jealousies, frustrations, failures and challenges will finally disappear. Moreover, your hopes, ambitions, dreams, aspirations, plans and your intensions will expire. As well, your successes, wins and achievements that matter so much to you will equally fade away. I mean, you won't regard any of them anymore. In other words, you will sooner or later lose interest in all of the above in toto, the very moment you become old and eventually die someday. However, I think that's worth meditating on individually, isn't it? ~Emeasoba George

  3. Emeasoba George:

    God is at work in your life presently. Although you are not spiritually sensitive. But, take this from me, God is gradually directing your steps towards goodness or goodies. And so, sooner or later whatever you thought was a setback to you is going to turn out to become a divine set-up for your own betterment. Yes of course, that's what will be your portion if only you believe just that.

  4. Emeasoba George:

    Be grateful to God (Almighty) for everything you have presently, no matter how small or unpleasant it seems to you. For, someone right here or out there is longing to possess everything that you have presently. In fact, your dislikes are someone else's likes. -Emeasoba George

  5. Emeasoba George:

    God has never changed and he can't change. Oh! yes, God is ever constant. Yet, he changes all things unquestionably/unchallengeably. And so, he will do whatever he has predestined/promised you. Listen up, you shouldn't ask/know how/when he will do it. Because you don't need to ask/know when/how he will do it. The fact is this, he (God) can and he will certainly do all that he has promised/planned to do for you. Come on, just take a look at where you've been and where you are presently. For, you will surely realize that he (God) is already at work in you.
