AN ENCOUNTER WITH GATEKEEPERS

315/365 Luke 18:2 He said, In a certain city there was a judge who neither reverenced and feared God nor respected or considered man.

HELPED BY GOD

313/365 Psalms 146:3 Do not put your trust in princes, Nor in a son of man, in whom there is no help. In times of expansion, need or challenge, one requires help to breakthrough and press forward.

THE ACCOUNTABILITY CLAUSE

266/365 A popular anthem today among the youth is 'it's my life'.

HIS MAJESTY

264/365 Each day, on my way home from the work, I encounter hundreds if not thousands of people but today, I must confess, somehow, I found myself staring.
