Life Is Not A Straight Line

Dear Someone,

I don’t know who this is for, but understand me well as I type these words.

Your current challenges are not there to kill you but to build you up. They are not there to stay but to pass. Your current challenges are not the most difficult thing you’ve ever had to face — acknowledge them but do not live in them. Your mistakes are your own mentorship, they are part of your story — they are not who you are.

Irrespective of the turns and detours in your relationship, stop wondering and asking if they ever really loved you. Irrespective of the detours that life has thrown at you, understand that where you are right now is where you’re supposed to be. Understand that “Sometimes, your ‘Plan B’ is really God’s ‘Plan A’.

Today, It’s Donald Trump 


Dearly Beloved,

“God doesn’t have favorites” – 1 Peter 1:17 (CEV). He bestows favor, not favoritism. He does everything for a reason. Today, it’s Donald Trump. Glorious things are spoken of you today too. God is with you no matter what. He is for you and not against you.

What he does for others, He will do for you. What He did for Boaz and Ruth, He is able to do for you or anyone connected to you this year. May all your prayers come true in Jesus Name! – Ruth 4:13.

May God “give you a good life”. May He cause you to possess your possessions. May He “make you more prosperous and numerous than your fathers”. May He restore you to favour – Deuteronomy 30:5 (MSG). Amen!

In Him,
~Ali Papa.
