Why Do we feel sleepy in ,
But stay awake through a 3 hour ?
Why are we so bored when we look at the HOLY BOOK,
But find it easy to read other ?
Why is it so easy to ignore a msg about God,
Yet we forward the nasty ones?
Why are Prayers getting smaller,
But bars and clubs are expanding
Why is it so easy to worship a celebrity,
But very to engage with God?
Think about it, are you going to forward this?
Are you going to ignore it, cause you think you will get laughed at?
When one door closes, God opens two: If God has doors for you,
