You know what’s the best part? God cannot lie to you, so If He says you’ll be safe, you know it’s not just to make you feel better, if he says that he loves you, it’s because he does. He is able to give his most precious son to show you that. If he promised you something, He will make it happen.
“Pray against pride, dear friends, wherever you may be. Pride will grow on a dunghill, as well as in the king’s garden. Pray against pride and vainglory, and God give you grace to keep it under!”—C.H. Spurgeon (via craigtowens)
Don’t forget to be brave today. Whatever it is that you’re in the process of overcoming or if you’re scared of something happening. Be brave and march on. // You have a strong soul. Don’t ever forget that.
God is with you always. Even when He feels far away, trust that He knows what is best for you and walking beside you during every obstacle you face. Stay strong and never give up hope. These obstacles make you stronger and will give you the strength to accomplish the plan and life God has planned for you. Stay strong!
The UN’s health agency said the scale of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa has been vastly underestimated and “extraordinary measures” were needed to contain the disease.
As the official toll climbed to 1,069, according to World Health Organisation, the United States ordered the evacuation of diplomats’ families from Sierra Leone, one of the three countries at the epicentre of the outbreak along with Liberia and Guinea.
The Geneva-based WHO said in a statement, released Thursday, it was coordinating “a massive scaling up of the international response”, in a bid to tackle the worst epidemic of haemorrhagic fever-causing virus since its discovery four decades ago.
"Staff at the outbreak sites see evidence that the numbers of reported cases and deaths vastly underestimate the magnitude of the outbreak," it said.
"The outbreak is expected to continue for some time. WHO’s operational response plan extends over the next several months," the organisation warned.
A serious outbreak in Lagos, where the epidemic claimed a fourth victim on Thursday, could severely disrupt the oil and gas industry in Nigeria if international companies are forced to evacuate staff and local operations are shut down, the Moody’s rating agency warned.
