Trials keep you STRONG
Sorrows keep you HUMAN
Failures keep you HUMBLE
And GOD,keeps you GOING
Life is too ironic to fully understand.
It takes sadness to know what happiness is.
Noise to appreciate silence and absence to value presence.
If you don’t love yourself,you will always be chasing after people who don’t love you either.
I woke up everyday happy not because things are perfectly good in my life or i know what is going to happen next but i know with God in my life,everything will be alright.
When you feel like you’re drowning in life,don’t worry-your Lifeguard walks on water.And i’m talking about JESUS.
