    God planned every single day of your life. Before you took your first breath, God knew every single event of your life.

    If you try to do anything of value in life, naysayers will come your way. They might ridicule you, spread rumors about you, or even threaten you. But don’t focus on the naysayers. Don’t focus on your problems. Focus on God and his promises. Become a promise person.
