Just One Day : You know how you go to a restaurant like Coco Vanilla Restaurant and when you’re given the menu, your eyes go to the prices first because the prices determine which of the meals on the menu that you will eat, not necessarily because that is what you want to eat? Because if you go through the meals section first and choose the one you want, the price will make you have a rethink?
You know how you walk into a clothing shop or an online shop like The SamBoad Online Store but your eyes are fixed on the price tags or written tags and you end up buying or shopping online according to the prices, not because they fit well enough or are the types that you want?
You know how you walk into a phone retail store to buy a phone with a high quality camera and large enough RAM so you can create quality visual contents for your brand but you end up buying a cheaper with far less quality because you can’t afford those high end ones?
Parents! you know how you manage to take your kids to an amusement park and when they point to a particular ride that they want to experience, you convince them that those other (cheaper) rides are less risky but you know that it is because you cannot afford to pay for that one they want?
You know how when you were looking for an apartment, you saw a beautiful house but you looked away because even though you desired it, you cannot afford to rent or to buy it?

But how will that day come when you have given up?
How will that day come when you don’t want to try again?
How will that day come if you remain where you have fallen?
Will that day come if you take your life now?
I wish you could see what awaits you; the beautiful future God has prepared for you.
I wish you could see beyond your present challenge and focus on what tomorrow holds.
I wish you could stop thinking about what could have been and focus on what CAN be.
One day, your dreams will come true…only if you believe and not give up.
Even if everyone gives up on you, don’t give up on yourself and guess what? God has not given up on you.
I am rooting for you. Have an awesome week ahead
