  3. EMEASOBA GEORGE:

    You should be thankful to God (almighty) always. If not for any other reason at least he wakes you up from sleep everyday. Oh! yes, you've never waken up from sleep by your own self and strenght. In fact, if God (almighty) decides not to wake you up from sleep, there is nothing you can do about it. I mean, you will immediately drop dead. For, you can't wake up from sleep by your own self and strenght, even the breath of life itself comes from him (God) alone and he can decide to withdraw it from you any time he feels like (unannounced), mark you. So come on, be thankful to God and remain thankful to him (come what may). ~Emeasoba George
