What have you given for Me?

There's this very crucial discussion that is usually left out during Easter celebrations and today, I couldn't miss it even if I wanted to.
There's this hymn that is titled "I gave my Life for Thee" and the whole point of the hymn is after all the sacrifice Jesus made on the cross, what sacrifice are we making for Him or what are we giving for Him and to Him?

It goes thus:

I gave my life for thee
My precious blood I shed
That thou might ransomed be
And quickened from the dead
I gave my lifer for thee;
What hast thou given for Me?

My Father's house of light
My glory-circled throne
I left for earthly night
For waanderings and lone
I left it all for thee;
What hast thou left for Me?

I suffered much for thee
More than thy tongue can tell
Of bitterest agony
To rescue thee from hell
I've borne it all for thee;
What hast thou borne for Me?

And I have brought to thee
Down from My home above
Salvation full and free
My pardon and my love
I bring rich gifts to thee;
What hast thou brought to Me?

I guess it's just simple. The sacrifice Jesus made for us was wort it. What are we doing to appreciate that sacrifice?

Where's the "Like" Button?

Hey people. Hope the weekend has been great for you as it has for me.

Thank God they didn't cancel the parliamentary elections again today, it would have been such a disgrace. Unfortunately, that's not my area of specialization or interest, so I won't say anything more about it.

I saw my brother yesterday and today. It's been such a long time, maybe two months or thereabout I saw him last and I was really glad to see him.

Sometimes, I wish there was the "Like" button on blogger. I was reading  HoneyDame's blog today on and I came across this post about Nigerian's donating blood and HIV Type O. Now, it wasn't actually the post that made me look for the like button, but the comments that followed the post. I couldn't stop smiling and thinking wow, Nigerians will never change.

God has been really faithful to me over the past few weeks. I have a lot going on for me; many of them good and some, not so good. The beautiful part is even in all of these things, I've learnt that God is too faithful to fail. His promises may seem delayed, but in the end, He always delivers and the more you believe, the faster He delivers(at least that's what I think)

So, I have this 'friend' I'm trying to let go of.  I don't want to be rude or anything, but I just need to know how to tell someone that you can't just be friends with the person. I mean, it won't be nice to tell someone "I can't just be friends with you" but at the same time, it won't do me any good to keep talking to you and I'm really angry for every moment I spend with you. So, ideas on how to be polite and still keep my distance is needed. Thanks in advance :)

I have tests next week, and my courses are boring. That's just the plain truth. Sometimes, I wonder who came up with the idea of education. It's a concept that has never been quite right with me. Anyway, whether I like it or not, I have to read, so I have to go.

Here's wishing you a week filled with God's blessings and favor.

"A future you don't actually build up will leave you behind or meet you by surprise. Change is happening so fast that it looks like a constant"
