I went to church today at Wuhan International Christian Fellowship and the message today was one of the foundational Christian messages that tend to be carried away by the World.
"HEAVEN MY DESTINY"
Let me just drop it the way I jotted, I was revived and I hope it touches someone to take stock of life and reroute his or her way back home.
Destiny : the events that necessarily happen to a particular person or thing in the future.
It is the place to which someone is going or sent.
So where are you going?
