    that is why we must live for the Lord and the Lord alone. Gunshot incidents seem to be the order of the day worldwide. we must not rejoice over no ills like this because we never know when it is our turn never say never. Father Lord come and take back your world before it is too late.Many may say everyday we hear he is coming and up yo this moment He hasnt put in an appearance but He is giving us a chance to turn from our sinful ways and to come and know Him as Lord and Saviour. Do accept Him before it is too late
