God Wants the Best Career for You, So Trust in His Plan - Billy Graham

God wants what is best for you, both in your personal and professional life, the Rev. Billy Graham writes.
Graham, founder of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, wrote in a recent post for the Kansas City Star that because God cares about our future, we should put our trust in Him that things will work out according to His plan.
"The most important advice I can give you is to seek God's will for your future. God knows all about you, and he made you into the person you are. He knows your gifts and abilities, and he also knows your limitations. Why not seek his plan for your life?" Graham writes.
It is especially important to trust in God's plan for the future because he loves all of His children and wants the best for each of them.
"God loves you, and because he loves you, you can trust your life and your future in his hands," the evangelical leader writes.
To illustrate God's desire for us to have the best, Graham points to Proverbs 3:5-6, which reads: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight."
To better know God's will, Graham encourages Christians to pray every day, and keep their hearts open to Christ-like guidance from others or from inside themselves.
"All you need to know is the next step, and that may be all God shows you right now. But he can be trusted to show you every other step," Graham explains.
Fellow evangelical leader Joyce Meyer has also spoken on God's plan, writing in an Op-Ed for The Christian Post that God is our father, as seen through the name Jehovah Jireh, meaning "the Lord our provider."
"The Lord is your Provider. He loves you and He has a good plan for your life. He wants to bless you so you can fulfill His plan and purpose [...] so you can really enjoy your life. And in His Word, He tells us who He is and how we can access everything we need through Christ," Meyer, founder of Joyce Meyer Ministries, explains.
The Bible points out all of the ways in which God is our provider, Meyer continues, referencing Psalm 91, in which God is described as "Our shelter, refuge and hiding place," 2 Corinthians 1:3 when he is described as "the one who comforts us," Psalm 103:3 when he is called "Our healer," and James 1:5 when he is described as "the source of wisdom."
"Trust God to meet every need in your life today. He wants to be your healer, comforter, wisdom, peace, joy – anything and everything you need. He wants you to live in His grace, forgiveness, mercy and strength. Rest in Him with confidence that He is the Lord your Provider!" Meyer concludes.

HUSTLER OR ENTREPRENEUR?

Earlier today, I asked friends on my Whatsapp time-line the difference between a Hustler and an Entrepreneur. Of course, there was a plethora of answers as different people gave very distinct meanings in response. What surprised me the most was that no two people gave the same answer. Everyone had a distinct point of view.
However, for the sake of clarity and simplicity I decided to curate most of the responses as well as my personal observations into an article.
First and foremost, a Hustler is someone who "make strenuous efforts to obtain" money or profit from different areas or businesses engagements. An entrepreneur however is one who starts a business (or businesses), manages it to produce tangible value and make profit from it. 
You see, it's easy to assume there's not much difference between the two personalities but there are. 
While Kemi, a LASU Undergraduate perceives the difference in the freedom an Entrepreneur enjoys compared to a Hustler, Success, a Bl…

Character

Think of character as having the benefits of a house’s foundation during a huge storm. If the foundation is strong enough, it will stand firm when the waters come. But when it is weak, the house will come down crumbling even at the slightest wind. That’s why it’s important that we develop a good character. It is often said that hard work will take you to the top but character will keep you there.  
 "Many succeed momentarily by what they know  Some succeed temporarily by what they do Few succeed permanently by who they are”
What then is character?  The Cambridge Advanced Learners Dictionary defines it as “the particular combination of qualities in a person that makes them different form others”. In the simplest terms, character is “who you are”, nothing more nothing less. It is often widely described as who you are when no one else is watching. Your character is what defines you. In other words, your true value can be more than what your degrees, reputation and even your pay check …
