When life throws you an unexpected, you have to decide, whether to let your troubles keep you captive in negativity or trust in Gods promise to overcome. I chose to rely on God, He has never forsaken me. My family and my recent health diagnosis is a blessing that only He could orchestrate. Because of Him, I am no longer in the dark but forever in the light. My purpose is to share that light with others In all that I do. #followyourpurpose
