Thoughts from within - Narrow Path?

I flipped through the pages for my bible to the passage i heard as the bible reading for the service which reads

1 John 3:7-9
Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.

He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

Did you also get the eye-opening reaction it got after reading this?

My ever over-active mind just slapped me with ''So madame you are of the devil'' as i'm trying to convince myself that 'm not i asked myself

What Can be qualified as sin gaan?
I don't steal, lie, fornicate, commit adultry, kill but ofcourse i still know i'm far from righteous.

Still having my inner sober reflection when the pastor comes up and gives the answer to my question.

Sin is disobedience of Gods word.

Okay i knew that but the question was did i know God's word?

The word in Romans 1: 29-32
Clearly states what God loathe

wickedness, evil, greed, greed, envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice, gossips, slanders, God-haters, insolent, arrogant, boastful, those that invent ways of doing evil, those that disobey their parents, senslessness, faithlessness

Also in colossians 3: 5-9
We have Anger, Rage, Malice, Slander, Filthy Language, Sexual Impurities, Lust, Evil desire, greed.

And Just like me, alot of us have forgotten that Sin isn't just about Stealing or killing there are alot more ''little'' words that we fail to obey.

I read here( joeyeparker.wordpress.com/2012/06/18/strive-for-perfection/ ) about perfection, trying to erase in our minds the notion we have that nobody can be perfect, that only makes us give up, however in as much as we are not perfect we should acknowledge our imperfect state and strive for perfection, that way we would always want to be better versions of ourselves.

Correlation you might ask..

Yes, when we stop acting all ''righteous'' and acknowledge that we are falling for little sins as unforgiveness, greed, anger etc.. Then we would be able to sit up, repent, stop being of the devil and move on to the narrow path.

Thoughts From Within

"When other people become your source of happiness, you begin to be unhappy"

"Never let your happiness depend on things, situations and people for as history tells us, things, situations and people do and will always change"

These quotes I read off twitter started my half-thoughts (as I would like to call 'em) because I'm still don't understand.

How exactly is the right way to be happy?

The way people open up their mouth and say this is What or what not to make one happy beats me.

As children all we just needed were toys, food, time to play and parents that would be there when they need more, to be happy right? Or what other worry do they have? School? Oh please..

When we grow older our parents became uncool, started going to church because your parents wanted us to go, school stress, friend wahala different reasons to be unhappy started showing up from nowhere right?

Disclaimer: This is me just generalising, ofcourse I'm aware there would be exceptions.

I know God is the ultimate giver of happiness, but truthfully how many of us understood this growing up? So what did we do? Found the happiness with someone or things we liked or stuffs we bought right?

Either ways the "someone" & "Something" factor was there right? Although the happiness was short-lived but it was there.

Someone always says this to me

"no one can make u happy. Real happiness is from within"

My own confusion here is, even if you get "within happiness" does someone or something not have something to do with it?

And what is this "happiness from within"? What exactly does it entail?

Is there a right way to be genuinely happy??

Forbidden Love

I think I've known you all my life,
Can't remember the first time we met personally tho'
I just remember daddy warning me against you,
I was a rebel so it felt good to go against him.
I was curious,
It lead to the greatest love affair.

I would sneak to have a piece of you,
Sometimes I got caught,
I was scolded, I didn't mind, the time spent with you although short was worth it.
I was in love.
The undiluted joy I feel whenever its time to see you,
The butterflies in my tummy,
The feeling of satisfaction and fulfilment I get from being with you,
I know you are irreplaceable.

Mummy was always quiet, she noticed the love I guess but she thought I would outgrow it,
But here I am; 21 still haven't "out grown" you,
She is tired. He doesn't scold me anymore too.
He has accepted our love affair.
He now understands,
Understands that the love I have for
Garri would remain.

*Dodging Tomatoes* Ok! Ok! I know..... :p :p :p :D

P.S: This was supposed to be an "update post" but I changed my mind. I got a tag from the lovely miss ay, walahi I've written it out in my note book oh, the issue now is typing it, would post it before friday next week. Fair enough? I thought so too... :)

P.P.S: I also have this story I've been working on for a while (I actually abandoned it) its still not finished, but I'ld post the first part so you guys can tell me if I shld hang my writing pen or just finish the _damn thing :)

P.P.P.S(is there even anything like this?): Notice the template change? What do you think??? Pls Go easy on me oo.. It takes a lot of courage to change anything in my life... I guess you'ld know why soon

*Now doing the dance* DON'T ask why :p :p
