small beginnings - Grace Gladys Famoriyo

Has God given you a vision to fulfil a particular assignment? If so, what’s your attitude and response been towards this? The reality is that some of us appear to embrace a number of incorrect attitudes which translate into the actions we take (or don’t take).

Unrelenting disappointment leaves you heartsick, but a sudden good break can turn life around.” (Proverbs 13:12, MSG).

In disappointing times, angst can set in after a period of hoping, praying, trying again, failing and waiting. This can become challenging and if care is not taken, this can open so many doors like anxiety, fear, discouragement, hopelessness and depression.
