Food for thought:
God didn’t remove the Red Sea, He parted it. Sometimes God doesn’t remove our problems, He makes a way through them. Life is like a piano: the white keys represent happiness and the black sadness, but as you go through life’s journey remember that the black keys are necessary to create beautiful music. Life is the most difficult exam; many fails because they try to copy others, not realising that everyone has a different question paper with different questions. Never compare yourself to someone else.
