“I will look for beautiful names like aladewura” – Twale -Flo Rocka
God is Awesome , he is too awesome that words cannot describe , I woke up this morning and I felt alive , I felt fulfilled , I felt blessed , God is refreshing ,getting to know him day by day is a privilege and a blessing . It’s been 3 months now since I decided to drop it all and a birth a new business , I already told my self that I would make it no matter what and as long as I have God on my side , I’ll go places , but in July , the reverse was the case. I had no hope , I was down cast , I thought and I said to myself “your dreams aren’t Valid” “your dreams aren’t worth the stress . I began to let go …. but God is just too awesome , in all my stupidity and foolishness I wept to the Lord and told him that I am no longer interested in this business but he didn’t answer me , rather he directed my heart to Psalm 1
” Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.  But his delight is in the law of the Lord ; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.  The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.  Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.  For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall”
