We go through so many thoughts in our mind at every point of our life.
The mind of men is programmed to process events, activities and also the future.

“When I take my last breath, what would be my last activity.?

I confess you as Lord and Savior of my life.
Thank you for saving me in Jesus Christ name.
May God help you to effectively live the Christian life and run the race.
