How to use task in a sentence?

  1. Emeasoba George:

    THOSE WHO CANNOT ENDURE WHAT GOD IS TAKING THEM THROUGH ARE NOT FIT TO ENTER WHERE GOD IS TAKING THEM TO. WHAT AM I TRYING TO SAY? I AM JUST TRYING TO SAY THAT YOUR SO SEEMED FAILURES, MISFORTUNES, DISAPPOINTMENTS AND WHAT HAVE YOU? COULD BE WHAT GOD IS USING TO EQUIP YOU FOR THE TASK AHEAD OF YOU. AND WHEREBY YOU FAIL TO SCALE THROUGH THEM VICTORIOUSLY. IT IS OBVIOUS YOU ARE NOT QUALIFIED TO BE WHERE GOD WANTS YOU TO BE EVENTUALLY. THAT IS TO SAY, HE (GOD) OFTEN USES WHAT WE DO NOT WANT TO GIVE US WHAT WE ACTUALLY NEED. THAT IS JUST MY DRIFT AND I HOPE YOU GOT IT.-Emeasoba George

That is the daunting task we face.

  5. Dejan Stojanovic:

    Entering a cell, penetrating deep as a flying saucer to find a new galaxy would be an honorable task for a new scientist interested more in the inner state of the soul than in outer space.
