    I'd like to paraphrase what David is saying, I've been through the storms and I've learned that while on this journey, there are challenges that we must endure, that we cannot take charge over, one thing that I desire to seek after is to put all of my trust in God because I've seen him work when my enemies and my foes came against me they stumbled and fell I will trust him forever

    My favourite is this Psalms Chap. 27 verse 1 "The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?" that is so very True if you PRAY and READ your Bible each and everyday and you have that Divine Faith and Assurance than no one and nothing can stop or hinder GOD'S Divine Pathway for each and every Creature in the UNIVERSE. Amen.
