The winter season of life
There are times in our lives when nothing seems to make sense and hope is the last thing in our minds. Times when everything appears to be worse and success seem to be missing in our vocabulary. This is what former President of South Africa, Nelson Mandela endured while doing time in prison as an inmate before he rose up to be the world's celebrated statesman. This is what Abram Lincoln experienced before he became the President of The United States of America. This is what Tyler Perry had to deal with early in his life when he was an unknown, discouraged and struggling young man before he grew up into being a successful movie mogul. This is what Colonel Harlan Sanders battled with before he struck it rich with his Kentucky fried chicken recipe. This is what Dr David Yongi Cho had to overcome before he became the founder and Pastor of the church with the biggest congregation in the world. You may be down there, discouraged, weary and in a hopeless state. Just know that you are not the first nor the only one to encounter the storms of life. The above mentioned people experienced the hurting blows of life on the way to greatness. You can become part of their list by staying alive and doing what will lead you to your place of destiny. The world is waiting with bated breath for your appearance. Everuything will start making sense the day you reach your destiny.
