  • Thokozani Sibanda
    I like hw Luke says these words "ask and you shall be given to,seek and you shall find,knock and u shall be opened for" these are wise words we should keep in our minds n hearts,God loves each and everyone that when u ask something he delivers it to you but he doesn't just deliver it to you at the same time,he awaits and looks at ur trust for him ,,,,,therefore i say Christian lets not give up in the Lord for he is the reason we still alive its becoz he loves us and wants the best for us

    Luke 11:34 The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. Daniel 2:22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him. Amos 5:18 Woe unto you that desire the day of the LORD! to what end is it for you? the day of the LORD is darkness, and not light. Zephaniah 1:15 That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness,
