It’s not over yet!

The FIFA World Cup being played in Moscow, Russia currently has been nothing short of amazing. This takes me back to a particular match I saw or followed; the France-Argentina duel. It had all the trappings of a classic soccer match- the suspense, the fans of both teams; with the French overall being one of the most passionate then with interesting personalities like a certain Diego Maradona long removed from his playing days in the Argentine camp. I thought it was over for the French team then within 11 minutes of the second half (57th to 68th minute), France scored three goals and that was the end of the story for Argentina… au revoir… Argentina were out! An injury time goal in the 93rd minute still couldn’t save them

Sometimes sports events like these for our leisure mirrors life. We just entered into the second day of the second half of the year. I don’t know how your first half turned out to be? For all those feeling down and out, already thrown in the towel for the year 2018- declaring it over

You are the one I am talking to through this article; pick your head up, it is not over yet. Life like soccer is also made of two halfs; the first might had not been rosy and pleasant but you have life and the opportunity to rewrite something this second half. Don’t throw it all away yet. For some of us too, it gives us the opportunity to press the reset button- you may have to do some readjusting of your priorities

“Even a tree has more hope! If it is cut down, it will sprout again and grow new branches. Though its roots have grown old in the earth and its stump decays, at the scent of water it will bud and sprout again like a new seedling”. Job‬ ‭14:7-9‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Enter into this second half with hope knowing things will work out for you. Pray, strategize, put action steps to the plan, have faith and do the impossible. It might work again this second time. Sometimes life will not take no for an answer and reward those who have the audacity of hope

No matter how far you have come into your journey in 2018, know that there is hope this second half of the year.

I pray for you this morning that may we all end high on a good note, come December 31st

Till I come your way again…

Peace & Love
