We live in a world where it is very easy for man to write another man off without a backward glance. But no matter the situation or circumstances God is still watching over us. Even when we feel too deep in sin and unworthy of His love. He's still our God and Father. As a people of a nation going through changes which sometimes may be very difficult but can be comforting, there's need to hold unto God.
This is an outline of His possibilities in our lives when He makes up His mind. Oh! He has actually done that. You just need to realise it.

In case you doubt; enjoy reading this short story:
In Swan Quarter, North Carolina, in 1876, the Methodist Episcopal church South needed a new building, so when somebody donated a lot on Oyster Creek Road they accepted. It was low-lying land so they constructed a sturdy little white-frame church and put it up on brick pilings. Days later a storm lashed the town and those within sight of Oyster Creek Road witnessed something amazing. The church building, still intact, was afloat! The flood had lifted it off its pilings and sent it down the road. They tried to moor it with ropes but the church moved on. At the town centre, as dozens of people watched helplessly, it made a sharp, inexplicable right turn and continued on. Finally, in the same decisive manner it veered off the road, it headed straight for a vacant lot and stopped dead in the centre! The flood waters eventually receded but the building is still there. In fact, 136years have passed since the church, now called Providence Methodist Church, floated itself to the most desirable property in town. What's amazing is this: The lot where it settled had originally been the congregation's first choice for their building, but landowner Sam Sadler turned them down. The morning after the flood, he presented the pastor with the deed. Yes! I believe you're think my thoughts. What happened could either be the most astounding coincidence or an act of God literally. Life existence is an act of God already. So, when God makes up His Mind even the most astounding coincidence occurs base on His order!
