I was just holding on to my God. My high school girlfriend left me then because I had nothing to offer her. But I had God and I had a dream. Never give up on dream, the same God that elevated me shall elevate you, hold on to him and trust his timing, I am a testimony, you are a testimony, put God first and it’s all done Amen #MondayMotivation ”
