Examples of surely in a Sentence

  1. Emeasoba George:

    Worry/Regret over nothing, if you've been worrying/regretting over anything before now. Because, worrying/regretting over and over again is as good as adding/rubbing salt to/on your own injury i.e. each time you decide to worry/regret over anything, be it your past life, mistakes, failures, disappointments and things like that, you are unknowingly worsening the case/matter in question. Yes, of course, that's just what you will end up doing to your own self/the case/matter involved. Although, I do know that some issues/matters do seem worrisome/regrettable like loss of job/opportunity. But regardless of that, rather than worrying/regretting over that/any other thing, pray about the/your case/issue. For surely, prayers can change your condition /case for the good. So, dare to worry/regret over nothing hence forth. Instead, pray over anything/everything.

  2. Emeasoba George:

    Wishing and trying to be like someone else is like attempting to live someone else's life. Oh! yes, that is just what it is like. Besides that, whenever you copy or imitate anyone right here or out there, you are indirectly and unknowingly devaluing yourself and limiting your God-given potentials or talents. In case you don't know. Every human was created or made differently and never collectively. And that implies, each and everyone of us is unique and wonderfully made by almighty God. Yes! you heard me right and so says the scripture in (PSALMS 139:14). Now, that signifies truly you are peculiar. And for that reason, you should not wish and try to be like anyone right here or out there. Moreover, the moment you make up your mind to be your own self in all you do. Believe you me, you will surely and eventually achieve what has never been achieved by anybody before. Above all, you will end up making a remarkable difference in this world. You can take my words for it. -Emeasoba George

  3. Holbrook Jackson:

    Beware of your habits. The better they are the more surely they will be your undoing.

  4. Arthur Koestler:

    If the creator had a purpose in equipping us with a neck, he surely meant us to stick it out.

  5. Mehmet Murat ildan:

    Whoever takes the decision of war, he is surely a stupid man!
