Grace for sinners

Grace Is For Sinners
by tiffanyharper
Whatever you have done in the past, or even currently, know and remember this.

God’s grace is for you. A sinner.

It is so easy to get caught up in the idea that grace is only for the healthy Christian who goes to church every Sunday, faithfully serves and acts chipper. That when everything is goof, how great is our God. We love His grace and blessings.

But what if you have fallen? Made a mistake, big or small? It cost you everything?

Can you still cling to His goodness? Worship Him? Can you remember His grace towards you while His Son hung on the tree?

Maybe you have been ostracized, condemned, removed from your community? Maybe folks are a little less willing to communicate with you. Maybe, those you believed were friends, turned out to be friends at all.

But Jesus is your friend.

Remember Peter, after denying Jesus three times. Jesus still called Him to lead His church and love His sheep.

Mary, caught in the act of adultery. Jesus did not condemn her. He reconciled her to Himself.

Remember David, taking too long of a glance at Bathsheba, noticing how beautiful she was and taking her from her husband. God still loved Him, David was still King and He still included David in Christ’s lineage.

People may disqualify you, but God does not. Discipline may be painful, but you are still of use to Him.

Even if no one else extends grace towards you….

God’s love covers you.

Grace is for the sinner.

7 Thing I Dare You Do Today

What you do every day is already important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.  But today, I dare you to take it up a notch, pump some extra life into every hour, and really make your time count.

Today, I dare you to…

1.  Make someone else smile.

Ordinary people worry today and postpone their happiness for tomorrow.  Intelligent people are happy today and postpone their worries for tomorrow.  Wise people only wish happiness for all, today and tomorrow.  If you wish to have a lifetime of happiness, dedicate time every day to helping others smile with complete sincerity and enthusiasm.

2.  Be imperfect.

Something that is really difficult, but totally worth it, is giving up on being perfect and beginning the journey of becoming your true self.  The most beautiful part of this journey is simply returning to the peaceful feeling of being.  This peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be.

3.  Make the best of what happens.

More important than what happens to you, is what you make of what happens to you.  The more thankful you are, the more beautiful this world appears.  You must uncover the good in the bad, the happy in your sad, the gain in your pain, and what makes you grateful not hateful.

4.  Forgive your past self.

Sometimes, good people like you make bad choices.  It doesn’t mean you’re bad; it means you’re human.  So get bored with your past; it’s over.  Forgive yourself for what you think you did or didn’t do, and focus on what you will do starting now.

5.  Spend some time simply being and breathing.

The only way to live happily ever after is one day at a time.  Just be, breathe, and think not about what you’re missing, but what you’ve been given.  Happiness is something that comes into our lives gradually through the doors we don’t even remember leaving open.

6.  Learn something new.

It’s important to remember that you cannot become who you are capable of being by remaining exactly where you are.  If you are not willing to learn and grow, no one can help you.  But if you are determined to learn and grow, no one can stop you.  In the end, there are no permanent jobs on this planet; we are all interning here.  Learn from everyone, evolve, remain humble, and don’t forget to have a good time.

7.  Say “YES” to a spontaneous opportunity.

Everything in life can’t be planned.  Some of the greatest opportunities will knock on your door when you least expect them to.  Be flexible, be spontaneous, and just say “YES.”

Good Bye

Did I disappoint you or let you down?
Should I be feeling guilty or let the judges frown?
‘Cause I saw the end before we’d begun,
Yes I saw you were blinded and I knew I had won.
So I took what’s mine by eternal right.
Took your soul out into the night.
It may be over but it won’t stop there,
I am here for you if you’d only care.
You touched my heart you touched my soul.
You changed my life and all my goals.
And love is blind and that I knew when,
My heart was blinded by you.
I’ve kissed your lips and held your hand.
Shared your dreams and shared your bed.
I know you well, I know your smell.
I’ve been addicted to you.

Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me

If the Barclays Premier League was a classroom :

if the Barclays Premier League was a classroom :

1. LIVERPOOL is a child who is very proud of the academic achievements of his grandfather.

2. MANCHESTER UNITED is a boy who just performs in the final exams and tops the class.

3. MANCHESTER CITY is a spoiled child who spends money on expensive books but is never interested in reading them.

4. ARSENAL is a boy who used to be top of the class but dropped down because he had to sell his books due to financial problems. He tries hard but fails to come out on top.

5. TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR is a girl who gets decent marks on 1 specific subject. She always finishes behind Arsenal.

6. CHELSEA is a boy who fails and blames his teachers then his family finds a new teacher for him every year.

I am a northerner. And that is a shame, but please don’t blame me, blame God or Allah. He made me a northerner and didn’t practice democracy when he did so.

Perhaps there was a conference in heaven (or wherever babies come from) in which parents choose their children. Blame my parents and not me, I don’t recall being part of it, I don’t recall choosing mine – but hear me out am proud of mine. But maybe given an option, I might have made a better choice, but I came as a northerner. This is the accidental badge of shame I carry, like all men, but mine is worse – I am a northerner.
Long before my parents made their choice, colonial thieves drew the map, it had nothing to do with me – they made me a northerner. No plebiscite, no Gallup Poll, with a stroke of the pen they made their choice and made me – a northerner. My choice was never a part of it; they followed the stars and hit the mark – to make me a northerner.
My land of birth is great and vast, full of life and changing scenes. Sometimes arid, sometimes green. Most times dry and sometimes wet – it is the northern land. I don’t blame others, if they don’t know, but I make them angry for just being me. My land is dry and breeds no things- but lush tomatoes, scented onions, hot peppers, and loads of grain, ginger and garlic. My land produces maize and beans; sugarcane, sorghum, moringa and millet. My pastureland is best for cattle, goats and sheep, best for donkeys, horses, and fowls of all kinds. These are part of the northern nothing.
The Mambilla makes the best of tea, of mangoes, pineapples, legumes and fruits. The earth yields carrots, melon and seeds. Once upon an ancient time, my land made groundnuts that built pyramids like Egypt land. The best of yams and potatoes breed; the best of beans and protein needs; yes, they’re nothing compared with oil – parlous insignificance to today’s gold. Whatever the north produced is nothing here.
I rile not those who produce cocoa, nor quarrel with those that grow their coffee. I bug not those whose rain forests produce the best of trees, timber and rubber and palm produce. Its nuts and fruits and lush red oil. All I ask is live and let live and hold aloft our green white green. I don’t begrudge the vast rivers – that give more fish than Argungu. I crave the taste of crabs and shrimps; I love the oil that powers boats, cars and moving machines. I love the tar that colours the road and lubricants that oil the wheels and burnish flesh. Yet all I ask is live and let live but nay they say we want you out. I am a northerner, to be seen never to whine, complain or hold my point of view.
I am a northerner, and everything I touch brings me shame. I love the land and fought for it. I love its make from my vantage point- the confluence of the Niger and Benue rivers, watching the evening sun throw the final arms of its glow, like rainbow shoots across the rest of motherland and even that they’ll take from me. For I am a northerner, who must see nothing, hear nothing and pretend to know nothing.
I am a northerner. Others are allowed to make their heroes, keep their heroines and turn their villains into saints but I am accused of political greed. I am the grandson of Tafawa Balewa, the golden voice of Africa, co-founder of the OAU – but I am the butt of modern jokes.
I am a northerner, cousin of Joseph Sarwuan Tarka. My uncles shed the blood that glued this nation. Yes perhaps not make professors per square metre but I made mine in quantum too. In Jelani Aliyu I share my blood. In Aliko Dangote I share my wealth. I am a northerner, branded loafer, codenamed para-site and forbidden to fight the label. I am never judged on the strength of my character, nor on my personal skill, for I am not supposed to have a brain, skill or character – I am a northerner.
If I drink am called a drunk, and if I don’t, am called a terrorist. If I eat they laugh at me, if I don’t they say, let him starve to death if he will. My almajirai are no match for area boys, I am a northerner. I am the son of Ladi Kwali, Gambo Sawaba, Bilkisu Yusuf, Amina Az-Zubair. I am the great grandson of Queen Amina, Queen Daurama. I am the cousin of Princess Inikpi, of unsung heroes and heroines, of brave hearts and royal Kings, of many tribes and many tongues.
But when one man allegedly takes a child and makes her his wife, we are all called paedophiles – because we are northerners.



Only those who can risk going too far: can possibility know how far they can go, don’t let yourself be limited by what people think or say, go as far as you can to get the answer yourself

women have been taught that being assertive and going after what they want is generally a good thing. But, is it a good thing when it comes to your love life?

While men appreciate an intelligent and successful woman, they typically don’t feel very appreciative about being managed in a relationship.

Here are the do’s and don’ts about being assertive:

Do Be Assertive At Work

You won’t get very far in your career if you don’t assert yourself. In order to be successful at work or in business, you have to know what you want, how to get it, and how to get things done.

Being assertive at work is not only a good thing, it’s necessary. Unfortunately, it’s hard for many women to turn that driven, masculine, “get-it-done” energy off at the end of the day. They think that what works at work will work in their love lives, too. But most men are compelled and magnetized by your soft feminine qualities, not your masculine, assertive ones.

Do Tell Him What You Want Or Don’t Want

One way assertiveness is attractive to a man is when you can clearly communicate what you want, or don’t want, without making him wrong and without criticism.

Express your desires with words like, “I want that.” or “I don’t want that.”

You don’t like his choice of restaurant? Tell him, “I don’t want to eat there tonight. I don’t like their food.” Not, “Why do you always pick that horrible place?”

Is he telling you something that’s making you angry or annoyed? Tell him, “I don’t want to talk about this. It doesn’t feel good to me.” Not, “Why are you such a jerk?”

“As long as you’re running the show, he may follow, but he won’t feel inspired.”
Don’t Chase Him

It’s frustrating to sit back and let a man make all the plans, or watch him drift away when you’re so attracted to him. You know you’re not supposed to chase after a man because it’s simply a turn off for him, but it’s so hard not to. In this new, modern era, women are just confused.

You may think you’re being friendly by texting him throughout the day. You think you’re making it easy for him by always making the plans, getting the tickets, or offering to drive. To him, it doesn’t feel friendly or convenient. It just feels like you’re chasing him, and he feels out of control – and therefore, not very romantic.

Don’t Manage The Relationship

Asking a man how he feels and “Where are things going?” seems like the natural thing to do. You think you’re being direct and honest and showing him that you’re interested in him. But it smacks of neediness and desperation to a man. As long as you’re running the show, he may follow, but he won’t feel inspired. And you will never feel adored.

Being assertive with a man – even though it may seem friendly and nice and “modern” – is a quality that never has, and never will, work to naturally attract a man.

I support marrying out a girl “AS SOON AS SHE ATTAINS ADULTHOOD”. Now am writing from common sense, because common sense is uncommon!
Nigerian Youths today are the MOST STUPID & IGNORANT set of individuals on earth. A bunch of STAGNANT IDIOTS with no will of moving forward (I do not mean to be provocative).
We waste our time on social networks creating confusion out of nothing.
Months ago it was the OGA @ THE TOP saga! Now its SAY NO TO EARLY GIRL MARRIAGE!
So what if a man decides to marry out his daughter early??? Nobody is forcing anybody to marry out his daughter early. You can decide to keep your Daughter Until 40 or even for a life time, nobody cares! After all you bedded your wife to have her.
Today ASUU is on strike NO youth is broadcasting about it. ASUP just called off months old strike, no tongue sang about it during that period.
When the Government is looting the country we are here pondering on who to marry out his daughter and who not to.
Singing the Gospel ” Give the girl a book not a husband” “give the girl a pen not a penis”. What if you send her to school and she chooses a boyfriend over her books? Or chooses a penis over her pen?
What if???
How many of you girls can confidently say “I’m a still a virgin from secondary through tertiary institution?
How many of you guys can say my girlfriend told me its pen over penis?
So please my fellow Nigerians, we should concentrate our forces to say:
NO TO CHILD AND MATERNAL MORTALITY….. So many positive NOs to be said by us.
This is a wake up call to NIGERIAN YOUTHS.
