Sometimes, we give out everything to receive nothing.
Other times, we receive everything in our passivity.
*Life does not always follow a particular pattern, our input does not always determine our output.*
This should not in anyway move us to live our lives solely on luck. We have to bring the best in us, for the best ingredients, in most times, determine the quality of the meal.
As you are dead certain and confident in your preparations and input, hope for the best but give some allowance for imperfections.
Allow God to shape your intentions and to guide your actions.
