FRIVOLITIES - the choice; voices at crossways

Voices at crossways

Remember what the voice from the cross says;

It's finished; His blood speaks for our case

Through the grace of the ancient of days

.


.

Two ways; you can't go all ways

Grace teaches us to base

And abide in Christ always

Obedience is what pays

.

Bruised by the craze

Of the lust in the maze;

Giving up your mace

Just for coins from the maize

.

Branding the essays

To suit what hell says;

Feeding from poor trays

Isn't what the great portrays

.

Knowledge starts from the Kays

But doesn't stand for decays;

What this play displays

Is they sway as they chase pays

.

What survey conveys

Shouldn't affect the praise we raise;

God's way is what weighs;

"Always obey" is the phrase

.

Still pray despite delays,

Praise him we don't end preys,

Check up under his x-rays

To checkmate all what self says

.

Life's without replays,

Which destiny will you trace?

When God's will stays,

You'll fulfill your days

.

Stick to Christ who authored grace;

The grease for the race,

And your story won't glaze

But your glory set ablaze.

NOT VANQUISHED - As our praise explode, the Devil falls with a thud

I bounced and balled;

Even through the Jericho walled,

Till Satan's punching blows wared

To stop my movement forward

.


.

With stagnancy spurred,

Life became a prison ward,

Freedom became a puzzling surd

And sin the maze losers toured

.

With man injured

And his soul ruptured,

Righteousness turned the bored

In a scene where flowers don't bud

.

No hope was pictured

Till death's soul was punctured

And graceful life reassured;

That's when my life got restructured

.

The devil is a fraud

Lording over soul's he's clawed;

Keeping them from God's word

And hardening their heart's pod

.

Every ship the devil boards

Gets stuck in the mud,

But the sheep with God's sword

Finds each stream easy to ford

.

The then unpaid debt none could afford

Cleared by grace; we're no more flawed,

The flood of riches none could hoard

Swept off our flaws and got us awed

.

Sometimes we err but love is God,

Correcting us with love's rod;

All our prayers get a nod,

Chains broken; forever sawed

.

As we worship with melodious chords;

Praising our Lord as we applaud,

The love in our heart is shed abroad;

Knitted to Christ in one accord

.

Despite all the odds,

The depth of worship is explored;

As our praise explode,

The Devil falls with a thud

.

I don't drink from self's gourd

But the word that serves as my guard;

My heart's where his word is stored;

The chalk of the Spirit writes on my mind's board.

GRACIOUS INVITE - Greatness lies ahead if you let Christ be the head

Oh! How man was misled;

Indeed, God's will misread;

Chose disobedience instead

Of obedience's path to tread

.


.

This is the truth I heard;

Greatness lies ahead

If you let Christ be the head

And follow in his herd

.

I lay on Grace's bed

Not by spiritual beard,

But just as God has said

I got nothing to dread

.

Haven't you heard;

It's finished from A to Zed

On that cross were Christ bled;

On that hill where his blood was shed

.

The account may show red

But still got my daily bread,

And by the Spirit led

You can release life to the dead.

STRIVE - Christ is the focus. He's the head and we're all part of the same body; Eph 4: 3

Satan always incites

Disunity and fights;

But get out from your night

And let us reunite

.


.

Keep the insights in sight

And use the word on site,

Till we're all left to write

One vision that's alright

.

Despite the spites of fright

Don't give in to the plight;

Night must give way for the bright

And for delights of the light

.

Using unity for flight

Let's soar higher than the kite

Aiming love as the height;

Agape that excites

.

Satan may try to smite

But we'll win in God's might,

Division may try to bite

But in Christ we're knitted tight

.

Let the mission be right

And our hearts be contrite,

Attitudes be polite,

Altitude that pull light

.

Honesty and trust that see light,

Communication without slight,

Understanding without plight,

And lives be upright

.

Whether black or white

With one voice we invite,

The love which our minds recite

Into, our hearts, the real site.

.

THE DAY AND AGE - John 15: 6, 10; 1 John 2: 6, 24; Rom 16: 17, 18

They say they hunger for truth,

Yet, won't shove it down their throats;

Show them the truth with true roots

And they'll call it truth my foot

.


.

Nurse them like the plants to shoot

And they'll pick up guns to shoot,

Offer them the safety boat

And they'll start loosening bolts

.

They coat grace in black suits,

Gratify self with what soothes,

Darken plain truth like soot

And make up the word till it's worldly cute

.

Toxic Rhema; no real tooth

Spreading fast like from Bluetooth,

Square roots bearing no fruits;

A walk without the Spirit's boots

.

As the devil tries to loot,

Let the watchman play the flute;

For the lying owl's hoot

Will never make truth mute.

FOCUS - Looking unto Jesus; Heb 12: 2

I see them false prophets;

How they force profits,

Bringing wrong prospects

And forming false precepts

.


.

We've been called out of darkness;

As God's righteousness;

Weakness burried in God's fullness;

We're free from wickedness

.

From the world, seperated,

Through the way Christ created;

Seperated and connected

To the blessed Godhead

.

Planted and situated

Through a path that's selected

By the lamb who was rejected

To get us and God United

.

With sin's genes ceased

And disease of death deceased,

That was the genesis

Of revelations of bliss

.

Take heed to God's doctrine

And hide it within;

'Twill shield you from sin

And make you always win

.

Choose to walk in the Spirit

And the flesh will free your feet;

Obedience keeps you fit

To achieve glorious feits

.

When we focus on Jesus,

Nothing at all can jinx us;

The "far-you-see" can't cease us,

Nor the "sad-you-see" that sees us.

.

MIRAGE - look before you leap

Butterflies in the belly; all but for lies;

Enticed by six packs to be trapped within wolf packs,

Though he signs lots of cheques, put your feelings to check;

'Cos money would no more matter if your morning turns to mourning

.


.

Don't just go for her lips; look before you leap,

Don't just go for dirt heaps disguised as killer hips,

Before you clutch her butts, consider the thorny buts,

All in for her tits? What if her teeth break your bones?

.

Friendship works; heart and brain walk the course,

Though the void of loss, you can still fill loss,

Philos isn't fee loss but paid not to feel loss;

Discern errors from Eros not to ride on the ere-horse

.

Caught in the art; two sail in the caught ship,

Beautiful picture; photography of courtship,

Fellowship with fellow sheep in a sheep called friendship;

But the pain of a cut ship can create a broken ship

.

So, don't be a bone of contention nor thorn in the flesh,

To be another's flesh, learn till your love turns flesh,

To be another's bone, got to prepare to the bone;

Prior proper preparation practically prevents poor performance

.

A two tyred cycle runs, yet, too tired to stand alone;

One man, one wife; make God the third cycle,

Or better still, a bicycle which God won't stop pedaling;

Agreement of two tyres pedaled to motion by love

.

One day is for the wedding; everyday for the marriage,

Honest love is the rock that makes the marriage rock,

So don't just talk the walk; you have to walk the talk,

Don't stop the work on yourself till you walk into yourself.

YOU ARE YOUR GREATEST MOTIVATOR - stop wishing; start doing

Doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment. Man can’t discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore. Forget the risk and take the fall, if its what you want, then it’s worth it all. A little Recipe for success - Study while others are sleeping; prepare while others are playing; and dream while others are wishing. Never give up on something you believe in, Because that something can change your everything. If things don't happen by your wish make them happen by your will. There are so many people out there who will tell you that you can’t but one of the greatest pleasures in life is doing the things people say you can’t. What you have to do is turn around and say watch me. Take every chance. Drop every fear. If you believe strongly in something, don’t be afraid to fight for it. Don’t wait for extraordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them great. If you want to make your dreams come true, The first thing you have to do is wake up! No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and fight for your dreams. Nothing is impossible, some things are just harder than others. You will never know what you are capable of until you take that first step and go for it. Believe the best even when you're going through the worst. Turbulence is the price you pay for flying high. Did you ever notice that the sun shines after every storm. Life is the same; what ever you are going through it will pass.

.


.

In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity. Life will always try to make things hard, but every time you overcome those obstacles, you become stronger. Always do your best. What you plant now, you will harvest later. Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better. Problems are with every one, it is on us to become the victim or overcome the situation and become successful. Anyone can run away, it’s super easy to run. If you run, make sure you’re running towards something. Never away; maybe away from something negative and not beneficial but not at all from something positive that you want. Facing problems and working through them; that’s what makes you strong.

.

Sometimes life just seems like chapters. Some good, some bad, but all come together to create the story of our lives. Sometimes we struggle through a tasteless coffee till the last sip, then we find sugar lying at the bottom; that’s life, sweetened but not stirred well. The best qualities we have are the ones we never see. The worst qualities we have are the ones we always see. Please remember that your greatest talent is so much more powerful than your biggest fear. Worry is a total waste of time. It doesn’t change anything. All it does is taint your mind and steals your joy. If you are ever to win, then stay strong and undefeated in your mind. The way to win is staying positive. It's not what you say out of your mouth that determines your life; it's what you whisper to yourself that has the most power - Robert T. You are your greatest motivator. If you believe in yourself, things are possible. Difficult doesn’t mean impossible. It simply means that you have to work hard. Push yourself to the limits till you achieve what your heart believes; what your mind conceives.

.

Whatever you do, good or bad, people will always have something negative to say. Be what you want to be and not what others want to see. Life stops for no one, so be what you want to be, not what others want to see. Don’t change for someone to like you, be yourself and the right people will love you. Learn to be happy with your self and with life 'cos it's the foundation to real gratitude; gratitude asides being the best attitude, is the foundation of positive attitudes. Positive attitude is the backbone of aptitude; the elevator to the right altitude. I'd end this with a story I found on my friend's status. A story of two dogs. Both at seperate times walk into the same room. One comes out wagging its tail while the other comes out growling. A woman watching this goes into the room to see what could possibly make one dog so happy and the other so mad. To her surprise she finds a room filled with mirrors. The happy dog found a thousand happy dogs looking back at him while the angry dog saw only angry dogs growling back at him. What you see around you is a reflection of who you are. So you see, you have no excuse to fail. You can create whatever you want to see; it starts by telling yourself the reality of what you want to be until you see possibility. The possibility you see affects your mentality, raises your gratitude, changes your attitude, strengthens your aptitude and eventually raises your altitude. Start today by reckoning yourself as a winner; which indirectly means you'd never quit till you reach your goal 'cos winners never quit.

GRATITUDE - Remember, someone is happy with less than you have.

The first mission everyday is always to wake up.  I may wake up with some aches and pains, but it doesn't stop the fact that I woke up. I’ve seen better days, but I’ve also seen worse. I don’t have everything I want, but I do have all I need. My life may not be perfect, but I am blessed. Instead of always wanting more, appreciate what you already have and you might realize, you don’t need anything else. I may not have everything I want in life but I’m blessed enough to have all that I need. For this I’m grateful. I fall, I rise, I make mistakes, I live, I learn, I have been hurt, But I’m alive. I’m human and I’m not perfect But I’m thankful. You may not be as good as you want to be, not as great as you want to be, but thank God you're much better than you used to be. Always remember to thank God for what he has given you that you didn’t ask for. When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around. Everything happens for a reason. May be you don’t see the reason right now, but when it is finally revealed, it will blow your mind away.

.


.

You need to stop worrying about the future and be thankful for what you have been blessed with so far. Jealousy comes from counting others' blessings instead of our own. Talking about our problems could be our greatest addiction, you know; Break the habit. Talk about your joys. When you are thankful for what you have, you are always rewarded with more. Try to stay positive and things will get better. Sometimes we don’t appreciate what we have until it’s gone and every once in a while we are lucky enough to get a second chance to show it. Rather than be depressed for my glass cup being empty or half full, don't you think it's not a bad idea to be happy I still got a glass? If you live life with regrets of yesterday, you will have no today to be thankful for. Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation. Be thankful for hard times in your life. Try not to look at them as bad things, but as opportunities to grow and learn. Rejoice in little progress and God will take you further

.

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. Always have a smile on your face. Never give anyone the satisfaction of seeing you down. Crying doesn’t indicate that you’re weak. Since birth, it has been a sign that you’re alive. Some people don’t understand how blessed they truly are; be thankful for what you have rather than focusing on what you don’t have; be thankful for life. If you never thank GOD after every smile then you have no right to blame him for every tear. My prayer often is, "God, if I can’t have what I want, let me want what I have." Remember, someone is happy with less than you have. As you start and end your day, say THANK YOU for every little things in your life. And you will come to realize how blessed you truly are. God does not create a lock without its key and God does not permit problems to come your way without solutions! TRUST HIM.

STAY HAPPY - live life before life leaves you

There are Lots of People who wanna see you doing well but not better than them.  What you see on the outside is sometimes usually the opposite of what’s on the inside. Why does it always rain the hardest on those who deserve the sun? Why do bad things happen to good people. The point is there are lots of reasons to be unhappy. It doesn't stop the fact that being unhappy remains a decision. Pain never really goes away; you just elevate and get over it by growing stronger. When you cant do anything else, LAUGH. Create happiness in life by enjoying simple things in this complicated world. Don’t think too much, you’ll create a problem that wasn’t even there in the first place. Sometimes you need patience in order to find true happiness. It won’t come fast and it won’t come easy, but it will be worth it.

.


.

The difference between earning a good living and living a good life, is enjoying what you do. Even temporary happiness is much better than permanent misery. Whatever makes you feel bad, leave it. One of the simplest ways to stay happy is to let go of all the things that make you sad. Do not allow negative people to turn you into one of them. Be happy with what you have while working for what you want. Whatever makes you smile, keep it. Beautiful things happen in your life when you distance yourself from all the negative things. Live every moment, laugh every day, love beyond words. Smile. It kills the people who want to see you cry. The key to happiness is to always have control over your emotions.

.

Worry is a total waste of time. It doesn’t change anything. All it does is taint your mind and steal your joy. Why sad over one thing when you have millions of other reasons to be happy? All it takes is 1 song to bring back 1,000 memories. The secret of life is not to do what you like, but to like what you do. Smile in front of people who hate you; your happiness kills them. Your day's only as good as you make it. Pockets mayn't be heavy yet your heart can be light. The path may be curvy yet you can shine as light. If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.

.

A good laugh and long sleep are two best cures for anything. don't let the world change your smile, let your smile change the world! Life is too short to be serious all the time. So, If you can't laugh at yourself, CALL ME...I'LL LAUGH AT YOU. Enjoy Every Moment You Have.. Because In Life, There Are No Rewinds. Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back, and realize they were the big things. Enjoy your own life without comparing it with that of others. Happiness is not ready made it comes by our own actions. Just because your life isn’t like what you want it to be, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it. Kill tension before tensions kill you, reach your goal before your goal kicks you, live life before life leaves you. Your Heart is not a Dust Bin To Dump all The Worries of your Life! If you live life with regrets of yesterday, you will have no today to be thankful for. Life isn’t always sunshine and butterflies. Sometimes you got to learn to smile through the pain. No one said life would be easy, it could only get better. Did you ever notice that the sun shines after every storm. Life is the same; what ever you are going through it will pass. Life is short & temporary. Don’t waste it with your stress just because you can’t get what you want. Life will always try to make things hard, but every time you overcome those obstacles, you become stronger. Upgrade your mindset, read new books, meet new people, travel; switch it up. You have this whole life to live; don't spend it in a box.

ATTITUDE OF A WINNER - Believe success is your only option

There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative. ~ W. Clement Stone. If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don't, you’ll find an excuse. Whether you think you can or you think you can't - you're right. ~ Henry Ford. "BUT" is just a word you use when you’re afraid to try. Try and fail, but don’t fail to try. Sometimes the wrong choices bring us to the right places. The problem is not the problem; the problem is your attitude about the problem. So Stop being afraid of what could go wrong, and start being positive about what could go right. Your attitude is an expression of your values, beliefs and expectations. Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude. Your living is determined not so much by what life brings to you as by the attitude you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens. You control your attitude. If you are negative it is because you have decided to be negative and not because of other people or circumstances. You create beauty with your attitude, your behaviours, and your actions. It's all up to you. You know it comes down to this;  We can't change our circumstances but we can choose our attitude, we can't control others but we can control ourselves!

.


.

Life always has many things to bring you down. But, what can really bring you down is your attitude. Success is 99% attitude and 1% aptitude. When you are faced with a problem, adopt the attitude that you can and will solve it. A bad attitude is like a flat tire, you really won't get far unless you change it. If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. It is your attitude at the beginning of a task more than anything else that will determine your success or failure. It is your attitude towards life that will determine life's attitude towards you. Our attitude toward life determines life's attitude towards us Despite many people's belief to the contrary, life pays no favourites. I’ve learned if you love life, life will love you back sooner or later.

.

Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out. ~ John Wooden. You are not born a winner; you are not born a loser. You are born a chooser. If you were to die tomorrow would you be happy with today? No one ever got rich with a poor attitude. Nothing in the world is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. History is made by those who BREAK THE RULES. Don't be scared of what the outcome will be; Flip that coin that determines the future. If Head; good to go. If Tail, then there's room to flip again and again. The attitude's never to settle for tail. Winners never quit, remember? You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. Even if I flip tail 10,000 different times; I certainly haven't failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work. Life is a puzzle game, you just need to find the right pieces. The only failure is in giving up before reaching your goal.

.

Enjoy the great times and make the bad times great. Your attitude determines everything. Life is like photography, you use the negatives to develop. You can MAKE the rest of your life, the BEST of your LIFE. If you can't change your fate, change your attitude. If you don't control your attitude, then it will control you; which makes life ultimately control you. Your attitude should make you proactive rather than reactive. Action upon life rather than reaction to life is what makes the difference between happening to life and life happening to you. If O stands for opportunities then POOR means P-passing O-over O-opportunities R-repeatedly. It's interesting that the PAST got no more opportunities for you. Asides the positive lessons you need to hold onto,  forget the past and move on. TODAY has got an O; an opportunity. Even if you miss it, TOMORROW has double opportunities in store. Don't forget though, that, POOR means Passing Over Opportunities Repeatedly. According to the numbering position of the English alphabets, ATTITUDE = 1 + 20 + 20 + 9 + 20 + 21 + 4 + 5 which equals 100. The attitude of a winner is a positive attitude of 100%. A positive attitude that never gives up come rain, come sunshine. Believe success is your only option because "winners never quit".

ORIGINALITY - Don't just flow with the difference, be the inference behind the difference.

Just saw the most smartest person when I was in front of the mirror. I’m not crazy, I’m just special. If being me makes me odd; you know, like different from the rest; if being me gets me tagged crazy, then maybe the crazy tag isn't bad after all. Why just fit in when you could stand out instead. Be "crazy". Be "stupid." "Be Silly". "Be weird." Be whatever you want to be, because life is too short to be anything but happy. I'm me! I'm real! I'm simple! I please myself but I don't "exalt" myself though! Your words are empty when you talk against me! I'm shy, but bold and strong! Life is the most difficult exam. Many people fail b’coz they try to copy others, not realising that everyone has a different question paper. Live life the way YOU want and ought to, not through the eyes of how other people will perceive you. It’s your life. Live life for yourself. Do not waste your life trying to impress other people. Do what you Love, Love what you do. If you're not doing the things that you love, then your life is not worth living. What are you here for? If you continuously compete with others, you become bitter but if you continuously compete with yourself, you become better. What do I do when I see someone extremely gorgeous? I stare, I smile and when I get tired I put the mirror down. Each one has his/her own story but the truth lies within you. Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind much don’t necessarily matter much and those who matter much don’t necessarily mind much; courteously mind what you speak though, as you courageous speak your mind. Mark Spitz a.k.a. Mark the Shark, Olympic champion swimmer, was famed for his large moustache in an era when every swimmer was shaving everything to become more hydrodynamic. He once jokingly said to the Russian team coach that his moustache helps him swim faster by deflecting water from his mouth and making him more bullet-shaped. The following year, a moustache was worn by every member of the (male) Russian team. Don't just flow with the difference, be the inference behind the difference.

.


.

Don't let your society define you; take ownership of your life. Do not waste your life trying to impress other people. Do what you Love, Love what you do. Be a good person but don't waste time to prove it. Whatever you do, good or bad, people will always have something negative to say! No matter how great you are, not everybody will like you. That’s life. Many don't notice your tears, Not even your sadness, Not your pains, but they notice your mistakes. Forget about the mistake but never forget the lesson. Life is so much better when you stop caring about what everyone thinks, and start to actually live for yourself. Don’t waste your time with explanations all the time, people only hear what they want to hear. FROM THE VIEWPOINT OF CHAIRS, HUMANS ARE MAINLY BUTTS. Don't let the opinions tabled by others to disturb your cheer. They have the rights to their opinions while you have the right to remain your true self. You can’t always be  nice. That’s how people take advantage of you. Sometimes you have to set your boundaries so that anyone who likes you is left to either  raise their hands to signify, or raise their standards to fit in. I am what I am and will never try to be some one else. If they laugh at me for being different, then I'd laugh in turn because they all are same. Two fundamentals of cool life – Walk like you are the king OR walk like you don’t care who is the king. You could find someone prettier than me, smarter than me, and funnier than me, but you will never find someone just like me. Someone who does not accept u at your worst has no right to be with u at your best. Somewhere there's someone who dreams of your smile.

.

Break a pencil and you’ll have two pencils. Break a pen and you’ll have zero pens. The sweetness of salt never attracts ants but the sweetness of the celebrity called sugar does. No matter how low you think you are, God has hallowed you in a sense and given you a uniqueness that the person whom you're jealous of ought to be jealous about. Stop looking into your weakness and start looking into your uniqueness. No matter how expensive that drink it is expendable but no matter how cheap/free water is, it's indispensable. God was kind enough to make you a superior kind; you become inferior when you choose to live someone's else life; a photocopy. Some people are living with a double personality like mean inside but nice outside. Usually relationships end when people get tired of pretending to be the person their partner likes. If you can't find whats good in me try to find what's wrong in you. Don’t like me? Cool, I don’t wake up every day to impress you. As you live life, don't forget that impact is key; no Matter the circumstances, be a pineapple, stand tall, wear a crown and be sweet on the inside.

BROKEN COURTSHIP: The cut sheep can still avoid a bleeding marriage

Bone of your bone or a bone of contention,

Your prayer partner or a special prayer point,

Flesh of your flesh or thorn in your flesh,

Stay onshore than sail unsure in a faulty ship

.


.

If a fellow sheep is cut, fellowship bleeds

Turning courtship to a law court's ship;

Liars for lawyers; Judges so selfish

Till love bleeds to death through the voice of divorce.

.

One reason we pray is not to turn prey;

Seeking God's will before holding the wheel,

Marriage is a school where you ought not graduate;

Till you graduate from life through a portal called death

.

Well handled courtship; holy relationship,

We go through courtship not to end a cut sheep,

Stopped if fellow sheep's cut; to avoid bleeding marriage,

Broken courtship; better than marriage in mirage

.

Don't just book for these likes; note the dislikes,

Thinking to reform him later may end love deformed,

Thinking to transform her later may shock you like electricity;

A broken courtship is better than a broken marriage

.

The outcome of lack causes a lot of varying slacks

The outgo of love also thrives on stable income

The response ability to unique responsibility

Financial stability is the star ability

.

The sickle cell dirt; void head to be avoided;

One of the few chores good for your Kidd's future;

Don't be stereotyped; take note of genotype;

Stealth from threats; health is wealth

.

If courtship turns marriage, hallow the one flesh rule,

This agreement of flesh to flesh; no disagreement of bone to bone

The family alter utters this unity that alters disunity

A family that prays together stay together

.

She's a helpmeet; not a help meat;

Treat her dear with respect; not like deer for dessert,

He's a human being and not a human bean;

Respect is reciprocal; there's a scriptural based order.

MISTAKES; The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.” ~ Henry Ford - (02)

[If you don't know where you make your mistakes, that's your worst mistake: not knowing where your mistakes are at. ~ Meek Mill.] [It is the highest form of self-respect to admit our errors and mistakes and make amends for them. To make a mistake is only an error in judgment, but to adhere to it when it is discovered shows infirmity of character. ~ Dale Turner.] Life has knocked me down a few times, it showed me things I never wanted to see. I experienced sadness and failures but one thing for sure. I always get up. Experience is something you don’t get until just after you need it. You have to experience the bad to know what’s good. Never regret. If its good, its wonderful. If it’s bad, its experience. Everyone deserves a chance to clean up their mistakes. A scond chance means nothing though if nothing is learned from past mistakes. Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. You can never make the same mistake twice, because the second time you make it, its not a mistake, its a choice. If you want a different result, make different choices.

Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently. The sooner you fall behind the more time you’ll have to catch up. Never blame solely yourself for any misfortune of life, because no single raindrop is responsible for flood. It’s not the mistake that matters; it’s how you deal with it, what you learn from it, and how you apply that lesson to your life. A failure is not always a mistake, it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying. ~ B. F. Skinner

Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless it's a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from. ~ Al Franken. The true measure of a man is not how he behaves in moments of comfort & convenience but how he stands at times of controversy & challenges. Never let your failures get to your heart and never let your success get to your head. A Mistake increases your experience & experience decreases your mistakes. You learn from your mistakes then others learn from your success. Sometimes we must get hurt in order to grow, we must fail in order to know, sometimes our vision clears only after our eyes are washed away with tears. Life is too short to start your day with broken pieces of yesterday, it will definitely destroy your wonderful today and ruin your great tomorrow. You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space. ~ Johnny Cash. [“You make mistakes. Mistakes don’t make you.” – Maxwell Maltz.] [Any man can make mistakes, but only an idiot persists in his error. ~ Marcus Tullius Cicero.] [“The only real mistake is the one from which we learn nothing.” – Henry Ford]

[To err is human, to forgive, divine. ~ Alexander Pope] Don’t try to dominate those who apologize for their mistakes because they understand your importance more than their ego. [If people refuse to look at you in a new light and they can only see you for what you were, only see you for the mistakes you've made, if they don't realize that you are not your mistakes, then they have to go. ~ Steve Maraboli.] [If you live long enough, you'll make mistakes. But if you learn from them, you'll be a better person. It's how you handle adversity, not how it affects you. The main thing is never quit, never quit, never quit. ~ William J. Clinton]

.

Disappointments are just God’s way of saying: I have got something better. Be patient, live life and have faith. Always end the day with a positive thought. No matter how hard things were, tomorrow’s a fresh opportunity to make it better. Stop thinking in terms of limitations and start thinking in terms of possibilities. When you are going through something hard and wonder where GOD is, remember the teacher is always quiet during a test. The greatest test of faith is when you don’t get what you want, but still you are able to say thank you Lord.

MISTAKES; Mistakes are meant to guide you, not define you. - (01)

[To avoid situations in which you might make mistakes may be the biggest mistake of all. ~ Peter McWilliams.] [Honesty is the fastest way to prevent a mistake from turning into a failure. ~ James Altucher.] A "Mistake" is when something is done once, and learned upon... If repeated consistently, it's a "Habit"; a "Failure" is nothing more than a habitual mistake!! [Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them. ~ Bruce Lee.] [Forgive yourself for your faults and your mistakes and move on. ~ Les Brown.] [A man must be big enough to admit his mistakes, smart enough to profit from them, and strong enough to correct them. ~ John C. Maxwell.] [Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes. ~ Oscar Wilde.] [There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting. ~ Buddha]

[Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes. ~ Mahatma Gandhi.] [The only man who never makes a mistake is the man who never does anything. ~ Theodore Roosevelt.] [The price of inaction is far greater than the cost of making a mistake. ~ Meister Eckhart.] [A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new. ~ Albert Einstein.] [Even a mistake may turn out to be the one thing necessary to a worthwhile achievement. ~ Henry Ford.]  [Mistakes are the portals of discovery. ~ James Joyce.] [Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. ~ Scott Adams]

.

[Each life is made up of mistakes and learning, waiting and growing, practicing patience and being persistent. ~ Billy Graham.] [Football is a game of mistakes. Whoever makes the fewest mistakes wins. ~ Johan Cruyff.] Life is a collection of mistakes, you will never learn if you don’t make them. If success is the problem then mistakes are the formula. You can’t solve the problem without knowing the formula. You don't necessarily have to be the creator of the formula though. [A smart man makes a mistake, learns from it, and never makes that mistake again. But a wise man finds a smart man and learns from him how to avoid the mistake altogether. ~ Roy H. Williams] Mistakes teach you important lessons, Everytime you encounter one, you’re a step closer to your goal. Mathematics may not teach us how to add love or how to minus hate. But it gives us every reason to hope that every problem has a solution. We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them. Your mistakes should be your motivation, not your excuses. The successful man will profit from his mistakes and try again in a different way. ~ Dale Carnegie. While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, the other is busy making mistakes and becoming superior. - Henry C. Link

STAR OF EASTER - reason for the spicy season

The clause that breaks sin's claws and shuts death's jaws;

He became a curse to change our life course,

He got the Ts crossed as he hung on the cross;

Gave himself for us to create us divine life force

.


.

He's star of Easter even without the star wars,

Left the throne for earth to dethrone hell and death,

Died for humanity that man may live for eternity,

Risen from the grave; reason for the spicy season

.

The word spoken; the veil broken,

Blood was the token that got life awoken,

Grace was woven to protect me in life's oven,

An unleavened raven; I'm a citizen of heaven

.

The world sees a gent; the Lord sees a giant,

The world says Sir Gent; the Word says sergeant;

Ain't just a reagent; I'm God's real agent;

To sin I'm divergent; to win, I'm convergent

.

Voice from Calvary; never will it vary,

The deadly fury is buried for real

Making man the story that represents his glory

Buried in life's water's scary; grace makes us rise than garri.
