Don't dwell in sin

Please do not dwell in sin, no matter what benefits it offers. Doing this might cost you a relationship, friendship, scholarship, internship or whatever kind of 'ship'.

Nothing is worth you going to hell for. Please take a 180-degree turn and face God squarely, there is nothing you lose to sin God won't give you much more for if only you believe and work right with God today.

There are countless times we lose sight of what we ought to do when we fall, we become confused, we want to continue living right with God, but then sin drags you closer to itself and entices you with its vanity.

You will feel less committed to the things of God, you feel lost, you are sad but you don't want to go back to doing right. The devil tells "you are not righteous and you will not be welcomed to God's kingdom", he will show you the many things that glitter on the ungodly path you have started on.

Please, dear sister and brother, don't let the fear of losing out stop you from turning back and continuing on the christian race.

Stand up and walk back to God, remember Jesus didn't come for the righteous, He came for the ungodly, who have fallen. It is better you rise and walk with God today than regret burning in hell for eternity because of the fear of what people will say. It is a personal race, not a general race.

I beg you please repent and work right with God, it can never be late if you are still alive, please repent, it doesn't matter what your sin is, doesn't matter what you did last month, last week, yesterday, 3 hours ago or two minutes back, I have come to tell you "God loves you still and he doesn't want you to dwell in sin".

Please pray for God to forgive you and truly He will. He will wash you clean and through. 

Make friends

Make as many friends as you can, but keep only a few.
Yes I said that because you should:

Smile at the janitor when you walk into the office,
Commend the guard at the gate,
Buzz your whats-app contacts as much as you can,
Say hello to the man jugging on the other side of the road.

Make as many friends as you can, but keep only a few
I mean this because you could:

Pray for the people on your contact list,
Give alms to the beggars on the streets,
Buy food for your colleagues at work,
Tell your folks you love them.

Make as many friends as you can, but keep only a few

You might not get the smile back,
You will not always get compliments,
You will sometimes be ignored by your whats-app contact,
The man jugging might just ignore you.
Not everyone on your contact will pray for you,
You might never get free lunch at work,
Your folks might not say "I love you too"

Make as many friends as you can, but keep only a few
because in the end you are the only person who knows who the true friends are, don't let the feedback and responses you get from the world change who you are or who you can be.
Some folks act sweet and nice to you today and act bitter and cold tomorrow, don't let that change how you act to them.

So you will have many friends but you will be friends to a few, those few are the ones you should keep dearly,

You know those to keep, you don't need a magic wand to tell who the friends to keep are.
There are not so many friends in ones life, when you find them, keep them, grow them and let them grow you too.

Solving disputes

Growing up as a child as made me come to terms with the fact that, they will always be disputes amidst friends, schoolmates, family members, lovers and what have you.

Some dispute more complex than others, some more simpler to solve amidst the parties while others require third-party 'settlers'. So this brings me to the reason of this post.

I think people who are selected to solve disputes and conflicts should

a) Not be biased,
b) Listen to both parties (Not in the absence of any member of the party)
c) Listen carefully
d) Re-listen and ask questions
e) Not give instant judgement or conclusions
f) Ask God for directions and wait to hear from God to decide on what to do (It could be immediately)

Set the rules

So I hear people say "you can't set the rules" but hey that is the mistake most people make, they confuse rules for regulations.

There is a thin line between rules and regulation the dictionary might not give you, but you will find it in Timi's diary which is rules are self-defined while regulations are organization-defined or government-set.

So you set the rules for yourself and obey the set regulations. That been said, do not let the world set rules for you on relationships, ethics, dining, walking, fashion and every other facet of your life. That is why it is your life, live it and live it truly.

These are a few examples of rules you might have heard overtime...
Relationships: The world will say you have to have sex with your significant order to proof that you love them,
Ethics: They say no one has moral standards anymore so just do as you wish.
Dining: They say you have to use the fork and knife /I am comfortable with my hand while tearing that chicken wing joor/
Walking: They say you have to take the right foot first
Fashion: They say you lack class if you choose not to wear heels.
...and the list is endless

So my point is this, let God be the anchor of your life, don't row on the boat paddled by the world and live by the rules the world has set.

PS: Ask God for directions daily because with God the rules come afresh but will never contradict the word of GOD.
