Most of us have taken steps forward in life and left behind memories of some times that we lived life at less than our best. Not only did we not meet our own expectations, we sometimes disappointed those that meant the most to us – including ourselves. We have overcome situations that became simple for us participate in, to grow beyond them into situations that are more challenging, frustrating, and demanding. It sometimes seems like everything that can go wrong does go wrong when we are doing things the right way and that it would be much easier to go back to living as we once did.
Anything that is worth having is worth the effort that it takes to obtain it, maintain it, and help it grow. We will not obtain anything that we have not obtained in the past by turning back, because we will go back to a time that we will see nothing new because there is nothing new. We will not maintain the things that we have in life by turning back, because the things that we have today were not made for yesterday. We are not growing by turning back, because turning back means that we have to adapt living our life at less than 100%, since the person that we were 5 years ago is only a part of the person we are today.
Living day to day life is not always easy, but turning back to a point where we once lived will not make life any easier because we will begin living our life with the struggles that we once faced and overcame. The struggles that we overcome in life do not grow, we grow beyond them and face a few new struggles that we are capable of overcoming because we become a little bit stronger when we face our challenges. Challenges make us who we are, but we have the power to make challenges magically turn into opportunities.
Even when we feel like we have suffered losses, we have to ask ourselves if we really suffered a loss or gained the knowledge to never suffer the same loss ever again. When we lose things either we weren’t careful or they were not meant for us to have at the time. Life is full of ups and downs, it is up to us to truly understand the difference.
Dear Janice i greet you in the name of our lord Jesus Christ,i thank God for connecting us through this network.
Am by name of Lukwago Sande a ugandan citizen pastoring a church also found in uganda and it is called New Gegeneration Ministries.our vision is to expand the kingdom of God through preaching the gospel to all nations and up lifting the flag of the kingdom of heaven.
for i got saved in 1992 and i was fulled with the power of the Holly spirit.for about my childhood life i never saw the parental love,i was mistreated because i grew from my step dad's home,surelyi new not that i was to grow into a useful person,for what led all those is during my growth i missed so many things such as going to school,for no body loved me and they tried their level best to kill me but as God says that i knew you before, he never allowed death to take me. i was surrendered to evil spirit so that they may kill me. what i remember very well is that one day they tied to tree and i was about to die but my sister came and released me from the tree, it was avery bad time that she was killed and i remained alone. i thank our Godbecause the word says '' i will not die but live and will proclaim what the LORD has done'' PSALM 117:17.
Surely i have passed through a very hard time thruogh out my life,so as the life was very painful i grew up and became a vey good drunker, i used to go for alcohol and also i uused other drugs to the extent of being hated more, i thank God that as people continued tohate me for him loved me more.
WAY HOW I GOT SAVED
One day i went for alcohol in the bar which was located at our neighbour village called Kanyanda,it was 7:50 pm, i let the bar for home and as i was on the way going home stagling side and side, infront of me frached a very big light which resembled nating an this world, i was a fraid and immediatly i felled on the ground, on opening my eyes i saw a man with a very bright face standing besides my, since i knew that God has never existed i thought may be one of the dead has came on my way but the face was different from those i have ever seen,
The man called my name and said '' SANDE,SANDE ,SAND '' he got my hand and rised me up, in thatvery time i saw the steps from the ground moving up words, we moved and on reaching wherei never knew that it was the heaven, a big gate was opened before us and we moved inside, truelly the heaven is there and i my self saw it, the man led me before avery beaughtful throne, on which the son of God seat, i saw Jesus with my eyes and he ordered the Angel to take me where those who die without axceping God where the go, my dear friend the place is very painful, i remember i was locked in a very smoll cage which was full of great heat, heard men , women,children crying and also where i was i was crying because the place was full of pain, the Angel by them he was stand a distance from where i was and in that very time i saw Satancoming towords me and he tried to caryy me but the Angel stoped him with his great power so the Angel used the same power and carried out of the cage, on reaching him,he torched his hand upon my head and i was refleched , we went before God.

Hi Janice! I recognized your picture right away! You get around too! ~ lol Isn't the internet great for this!?! I had joined Empowerism, but, with our new presentation, we're showing everyone how to get into two businesses for about $20, and then how to build teams of just 3 ~Chat to text is just $6 and Black Business Builders is $14-which has a lot of tools to use to market, like their video postcards, I'm hoping to create my first one within the next couple of days and I'll send you one! The key is just to start building your team and then, you can "run" your one team into any of your businesses (Soulpurpose, Empoerism, travel, etc.!) We can talk more about it! Also, we have a nightly webinar Mon.-Thurs. at 9:15, where you can get more info. ~ let me know, I can send you the link~ Monica:)
