How to use stagnate in a sentence?

  1. Steffen Hertog:

    Government hiring has slowed down due to austerity measures, while at the same time the private sector has started to stagnate, there's just a shortage of jobs.

  2. Karen Smith:

    As birds and mosquitoes sought water, they came into closer contact and amplified the virus, particularly in urban areas. The lack of water could have caused some sources of water to stagnate, making the water sources more attractive for mosquitoes to lay eggs.

  3. Roger Anderson:

    Let us be very careful not to fall into the trap of the world. The world views things only relative to man and to self. The Word of God views things relative to the Father, Son, and Spirit. Mankind is not the center of all things. No matter how great anyone's name might become, it is still far behind His. Our name comes from His life the name of our Lord comes from the resurrection--the event unique to Him. The world has a problem it seeks to honor, uphold, exonerate and generally praise itself. Our place and the place of the entire world system is to praise and exalt God. When people of the Bible caught a glimpse of Him, their lives were changed. Perhaps our lives remain stagnate because we do not spend enough time looking at Him.

  4. Ahmed Korayem:

    Just like water in an aquarium, a mind left to stagnate brings forth death to whichever life that dwells within it
