Welcome to purposeful living today.  I begin with the words of Socrates the Greek Philosopher who said   “The unexamined life is not worth living”.

As 2018 is coming to an end it is important that we begin to review how it was in every area of our life, our success, failures, mistakes and achievements. We also ask ourselves why we succeeded, failed and made mistakes. I will be asking you questions as a guide which you will answer by yourself based on what you were able to achieve this year so that you can access yourself and know how to brace up for 2019.

This review is to empower us make better decisions and create better strategy to handle the challenges of 2019, so we can be better and then becoming the best. I know that there are more questions which we will like to review. These are the ones that came to my mind. You can add others as you are reviewing your 2018 events.

Please do make your life better; it is a gift and a trust given to you by God to give Him Glory and to be a blessing to humanity.

Please share with your friends if this post has blessed you. Keep living a purposeful life. Never forget that God loves you very much.

God bless you.

You can begin a relationship now with the lord Jesus Christ by saying this prayer:

Lord Jesus Christ  I acknowledge that I am a sinner,  I believe in your death and resurrection.  I ask you forgive me my sins,  I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life.  I declare today I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name .Amen .

If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.
If you made this decision please send an email to  

Thank you, we love and celebrate you.
