There Is Always Hope

The days are going so rapidly that it was not until I was in the middle of June that I remembered that I have not done a review for the month of May.

The past month has been very active worldwide filled with civil rights demonstrations and political unrest.

The world is also slowly returning to normal after the COVID-19 scare. However, many people are still unemployed while others are on the borderline of starvation.

Much prayers are needed, but if you are in the position to help then, by all means, extend a helping hand to those who are in need.

These are the days when we need to return to our roots and become self-reliant.

The turbulent times should fill us with hope and patience knowing that the coming of the Lord is near.

May God help us to keep our hope alive in the Lord Jesus Christ.

May Statistics

The month of May received a total of 5,08 views including 3,086 visitors. The viewers were from almost every country in the world.

Views from Oman, Vanuatu, Namibia, Gabon, Iraq, and Qatar. These are just a few of the countries that have viewed my blog at least once during the month of May.

Of course, the USA has the highest views of 2,086. I appreciate every single person that has visited my blog. I pray that God will multiply their blessings a hundredfold.

  1. Hallelujah for the hope that we find in Christ. On a side note, when I read this I remembered Jesus promise to His disciples – “and ye shall be witnessed…to the uttermost parts of the earth.” I see Him fulfilling this with your blog, sis. Blessings always 🙏🏽
