How to use imbibe in a sentence?

  1. Emeasoba George:

    You should be grateful to God for all things that happen to you. For, all things happen either to be a blessing or a lesson to you. Thus, imbibe just that.

  2. Emeasoba George:

    There can be no growth without a change. There is equally no sustainable change without a growth. This implies, growth and change are intermingling. But, a change is never easy initially. It often comes with anxiety, loss and sometimes pains. Nevertheless, when a change is given a chance, its end result is most times worth the pains that come with it. So, dare to pave way for a positive change. Better still, an attitudinal change. Because a change that begins with ones attitude is always effectual and perpetual too. Therefore, this is a call to imbibe an attitudinal change spirit, whoever you are and wherever you are.

  3. Emeasoba George:

    Get rid of the mentality that I CAN'T and get used to the mentality that I CAN. That is to say, you've got to think and speak positively at all times. Because, if you often think and speak positively. Believe you me, positive results will always show up for you. Yes of course, positive thinking and speaking evoke strength, initiatives, ideas, goodies, possibilities, realities and stuffs like that. But, the reverse will be the case if you resolve to keep on thinking and speaking negatively.

    True Love always protects, it always trusts, it always hopes and it always perseveres. Reference 1st Corianthians 13:7. The scripture says all that in black and white.

In other words, he or she should always trust his or her partner or spouse and should be trusted equally. Moreover, every true love should be hopeful always and not at all hopeless, no matter what. Also, every true love is expected to persevere all through tough times and never to give up or quit. Now that is just proven attributes of true love. The burning question is. Do you have the above characteristics in your relationship or marriage? If your answer is NO. Then, you've got to have a rethink and afterwards just imbibe and portray all the above attributes. For, that is just what is expected of you and nothing less than that. -Emeasoba George
