Summary: Say YES to a challenge for you will always prosper when you walk with God
...Be strong & courageous.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged,
for the Lord your God will be with you
wherever you go.
In life you will always have to fight to be able to have your own place and name. If you are wise, you will know that every challenge in life offers you so much experience and knowledge you will use in the long journey of your existence. In the battle you may not always win but remember that every defeat makes you wiser when you know how to rise again. And as you get up, ponder on what made you defeated and learn from it so that on the next encounter, you will never fail again.
Don’t be contented with just listening to what other people saw and experienced – go see and experience for yourself. Don’t get fond of making illusions, make that illusions happen. When there is no way for it yet, make your own path and let others follow your trail but it all starts with you saying YES to a challenge.
