I have seen many days, I have seen many nights.
I have seen laughter, I have seen tears.
I have been happy, I have been sad.
I have experienced success, I have experienced failure too.
I have seen strangers become friends, I have seen friends become strangers.
I have enjoyed gains, I have suffered loses.
I have been up high, I have been down low…
But this indeed is what I have to say;
All things in life happen for a REASON. And every experience is but for a SEASON.
When the season is gone and the reason is learned, there comes about GROWTH. – A growth that can only be by CHANGE. A change that can only be WITHIN.
So whatever you are going through now, learn from the reason and live out the season. You are coming out stronger and better, PURER THAN GOLD… You will succeed!
In this world that we live in, many people live their lives to tell the stories of others but some live and become the stories to be told. The choice is ours to make. It is ultimately our decision to make whether we will be remembered or forgotten many years after we are dead.
In whatever you do, determine to make the world remember that you were here FOR GOOD, even when you are centuries gone.
Father Abraham today is known as the father of faith. Daniel has become a symbol of integrity and Jesus is the personification of love itself. What will you be remembered for? Will you be remembered at all?
The true worth and value of a man’s life is not in the number of years he spent living, but in the impact that he made while he lived. This simply refers to the contribution that you make to the betterment of the world, your nation, your community or even just an individual.
Always remember that you owe everyone that comes in contact with you (physically or otherwise) an encounter of a lifetime. But what kind of encounter would that be? Would it be positive or negative? Only you can decide.
Determine to write your name not just on the sands of time, but on the hearts of men. For this is most important. Some have used a warrior’s sword, some have used a painter’s brush, and I will use a writer’s pen.
What will you use? Decide that today.
