TWS- SPIT THEM OUT!

The processed information from our hearts that gets to our mouth can either be bad or good, negative or positive, destructive or constructive. I have said that whatever form they take, you need to let them out.

Someone asked: Are we supposed to utter negative things out of our mouth?

I will try to answer this question here. My answer may not be absolute, but I think it will help you.

The last episode was a bit open ended and I will take it further in this episode. If you did not read my last post, please visit my blog site to read it so you can understand the foundation that was laid for this post.

It is instructive to know that the way you let out the processed information from your heart through your mouth differs and is dependent on the nature of the processed information. The way you let out the bad differs from the way you let out the good. It is also important to note that they are all let out as WORDS. So they can be negative words, or positive words.

How do you let out negative words?

I will want to liken negative words to phlegm. Phlegm is produced when you have a bad body condition such as cold. When phlegm comes to your mouth, how do you let it out? You SPIT IT OUT! That is exactly what you do to negative words. You do not pour it on any other person neither do you pour it on yourself. When you spit it out, you cover it with positive words.

Have you ever been so angry at someone that all you feel like doing is rain curses and abuses? You have the option to spit the curses and abuses on the person or you could let the person know that you are not happy with what they did without raining curses and abuses on the person.

If you must get to the zenith of your life, you must learn how not to pour negative words on yourself or on others. And please, swallowing the negative words will not help you. They will always find their way back to your mouth and you will never know peace until you let them out.

Do not forget, the way to let out negative words is to spit them out. Do not spit it out on yourself or others, and remember to cover it with positive words.

TWS- LET THEM OUT!

Who we end up becoming in life is not just a function of the information we are exposed to, but most importantly, a function of what we do with the information we are exposed to.

It has been said, and I at the moment agree, that you cannot stop a bird from flying over your head, but you can stop it from nesting on your head. I came across a very inspiring article that has this statement:

It is not what people do to you that hurts, it is how you take what people do to you that hurts. (paraphrased).

The situations around you is not the problem, but the way you handle them is.

I believe it is no longer news that the power of life and death lies in the tongue. What comes out of your mouth is a product that was manufactured in your heart using the information you are exposed to as raw materials. Those things that come out of you have the potential to kill or make alive. It all depends on how you handle them.

The truth is that the processed information in our hearts have a way of finding themselves to our mouth. When they get to your mouth, you have two options: either to swallow them again or let them out. I will not advise you to swallow them again, that will be suicidal. I strongly recommend you let them out, good or bad.

One of the downsides of swallowing those things that come to your mouth is that they will bloat you up. I may not be a nutritionist, but bloating is not a condition that anyone will deliberately decide to accommodate. The same way, it is not healthy to take in food and not ingest the digested product, it is equally harmful to your future and destiny to keep processed information in your mind and not let them out. If you must have a healthy destiny, you have to let out all the processed information in your mind. Are you burdened with a weight of processed information in your heart, LET THEM OUT!

A Happy New Month To You!

TWS- IT’S IN YOU

Growing up, I used to really like television advertisements. I particularly used to like the advertisements of tobacco brands. As a matter of fact, Rothmans® King Size used to take me over the roof with this ending: “… the best tobacco money can buy”. It was giving me a perspective of that tobacco brand. I remember telling myself “when I am 18, I will try it out”. Thankfully, I did not.

Moving away from tobacco brands, I found the Peak® advertisement quite captivating and motivating. At the end of the advertisement, they will end with this message: “… it’s in you”. That message triggered hope on the inside of me. It made me begin to see myself achieving great feats in the nearest future. My constant exposure to this message made me see a whole lot of possibilities.

I simply wrote this piece to tell you that IT’S IN YOU. Everything you need to be great in life has been put inside of you by your Creator. You are a masterpiece. You are the original of you. You have what it takes to build that Multi-billion-Dollar establishment. Oh, yours is a global fashion brand? You’ve got it in you. Maybe yours is to be an industry giant, it’s in you. Now before you read any further, take 60 seconds and tell yourself “I’VE GOT IT IN ME!”. Oh do not hesitate, declare it now.

Do not let the euphoria of destiny helpers put you in a deluded state. As a matter of fact, I do not believe in your destiny helper locating you just like that. God is a miracle worker and not a magician. You have to release something from your inside that will attract your destiny helpers. Even if God was to send someone to help you become what you were destined to be, it will be in response to a signal you have released from your inside, possibly through prayer. You can get religious all you want, but you can only be made free by the truth. This is freedom coming your way today. You have to release YOU from the inside to begin to dare those feats.

IT’S IN YOU!

TWS- GO FOR IT!

If I give you a pad to write all the things that have crossed your mind to do, I am sure it will run into pages. As a matter of fact, you have been writing New Year resolutions for the past how many years? And for each time, there is something you tell yourself you will want to achieve that year…

Interestingly, this year was not different. Some of those plans have been carried over to the point that they really want out. And right now, you do not even know if you are going to actualize any of those plans this year.

Let me tell you something;

For every idea that is generated in your mind, you have to potential to actualize it.

I always tell people that whatever you can think of, you can have it. If it crossed your mind, then it should be mined. Now I will ask you to go to the place where you have kept that journal of ideas and get them out. Look at them again from the beginning and ask yourself this question: Did this cross my mind? If the answer is YES, then you have to quickly make a dash to the next paragraph.

The next thing I want you to do is tell yourself this: I will take the first step to make these ideas a reality and I am going to take them one at a time. Oh! That sounds relieving, right? This is just the beginning. I will need you to constantly tell yourself this and trust me, it will drive you to go for it.

That idea needs to be unboxed. You need to get it out of the book-box and start working on it. If you do not go for it, they will remain wherever you have kept it and you have the giver of the idea to answer to. My friend, GO FOR IT!

Not everyone is going to like what you do or what you have to offer; however, if you can’t see yourself doing anything else, and you have the drive and ambition, get the training and go for it

TWS- JUST SHUT UP!

You know what? I am tired of hearing how impoverished your background is. I am getting irritated of your excuses and reasons for not attempting that feat. You do not have all that is required, so bloody what? I am telling you this because your dumb excuses are beginning to irritate me. I am sick and tired of them. Would you just shut up?!

The next thing you will tell me now is that you did not finish school and the one you even went to was a community school in your village or you lost your dad when you were tender.  Who told you that your dad has to be there before you amount to anything? Oh now, you want to blame him for your inability to stand up and grab the opportunities that has come your way so far? My friend, just shut up!

Let me let you in on some realities that your deluded and lazy mind has failed to see.

I want to tell you about Ben Carson. Oh, if you do not know that story go to the nearest bookshop and buy GIFTED HANDS by Ben Carson. At age 8, he was a victim of a disjointed family. His parents were divorced and he, with his brother, had to be brought up by his mother alone. Wasn’t that enough excuse to become irrelevant in life? That is not even as bad as what became of him in his early school days. He dropped to the bottom of the class and became an object of ridicule. With his mother’s help, he activated his imaginative power. He became determined to change the narrative. Long story short, he did not allow himself to be drowned in excuses. He did something to ensure he amounted to something.

You see why your excuses are making me nauseous? Stop telling me why you cannot and start making bold steps to utilize the world of opportunities that are coming your way. Being disadvantaged is a state of mind and you need to snap out of it. Stop giving me excuses, I no longer want to hear them. DO SOMETHING!

Excuses are tools of the incompetent used to build monuments to nothing. For those who specialize in them shall never be good at anything else

TWS- FINISH LINE

As I wrap this up, I want to say that the distance of your liferathon is not in the number of years you have to live, it is in the purpose you are to fulfill. One can be 80 and unfulfilled and another 45 and fulfilled. Fulfillment is not in age, but in purpose. The reason you passed the first hurdle is to fulfill purpose in order to get to the finish line of liferathon.

I knew you before I formed you in the womb; I set you apart for me before you were born; I appointed you to be a prophet to the nations

Jeremiah 1:5 (ISV)

I like to say that you do not have guarantee of long life if your purpose does not allow it. It is the time was allotted for you to fulfill purpose that determines when you get to the finish line.

I used to recite Psalm 91:16 and it used to be my best verse of that chapter. For some time now, I occasionally bring things I have believed in and held tenaciously over the years to a proofing table. One of the things I discovered about that verse was that it was an effect of a cause. I had to trace the cause back to verse 14. I then realized that I have no right to long life if I am not focused on my purpose.

Your purpose defines your finish line. During REHAB, your purpose is made clear to you. You receive the vision you are to run with. The essence of REHAB is not just to empower you to run, but to remind you that your life must count for something. So when you get to your finish line, you can then declare like Apostle Paul:

I have fought the good fight. I have completed the race. I have kept the faith

2 Timothy 4:7 (ISV)

When you come to the point where you have completed your assignment on earth, that is your finish line.

Stay blessed and a Happy November to you.

TWS- RENEWED

Another thing that happens at REHAB is renewal of strength. Every new life comes with a new strength. This is not a top up or a makeup, it is new. The new strength is not added, it is given completely. This means that every strength you had initially is taken away.

God does not put an old wine in a new wine skin.
 He cannot give you a new life and then top up your strength. He strips you of whatever strength you have; to give you a totally new one that will carry you as you live your new life. This is why He strips you of whatever gave you pleasure in the old life you had. The next time you notice that things are changing in your life that could be God taking you through REHAB.

In Luke 24:49, Jesus told the disciples to wait in Jerusalem. He could have just asked them to launch out immediately, but no, he asked them to wait. This is because the strength they need to function effectively can only come when they have received the Holy Ghost, the strength giver.

I am led to say something, and I will close with it.

REHAB is a place of preparation for greater exploits.
 Do not be in a hurry to launch out, wait on the Lord and let Him fill you with the Holy Ghost. That is when you can be fired up for the hurdles of this liferathon.

Stay blessed.

TWS- NEW YOU

A number of things happen at REHAB. Of all of those things, I’ll pick out two that relates to the thought I have been sharing in this series:

One of the things that happens at REHAB is that your old self is taken away and a new you comes out. God through the working of the Holy Spirit removes the things that were hitherto making your life miserable. Everything that make you lag in this liferathon is taken away and a new person is imputed. This could be habits, friends, addictions etc., they are all taken care of here.
I have shared how I struggled with my past life for almost a year after I got born again. I had friends that I knew I should send to the outer circle, but yet, I could not bring myself to tell them that I had found Jesus. I knew I was saved, but I was struggling with letting go of some kind of friends. I have also shared how I got addicted to alcohol, that I wondered within myself how it got that bad considering my foundation. It took REHAB to get rid of those lifestyle and for me to fully embrace the new life I found.

It is not always an easy process, but it is a worthy venture. It will definitely take a lot from you. It would take you denying yourself of some things that naturally used to give you pleasure. This things could be food, company, home, comfort etc. This is the way of the Eagle. It makes the decision to strike off its beak, and pluck out its old talons and feathers. This is where you play a role in REHAB. You have to give God the permission to remove all those things that need to be removed. When they are removed, you can now see the new you emerge.
You cannot enjoy this new life, if you are not born again. You need to acknowledge Jesus Christ as your saviour and make Him Lord of your life. He is still in the business of giving a new life and He will give you today if you let Him. Do not push this any further, this is a wonderful opportunity to get rid of all those things that are wearing you out. Just pray to God to come into your life and make it brand new.
If you have done this, I want to congratulate you. You have started a journey of a life in Christ and for that, I commend you. I also will encourage you to find any Assembly of believers for help on how to fully access the fullness of this new life. If you contact me, I’ll gladly help you. I love you and I look forward to hearing from you. You can call (+234)08063566730 or write me through transformingwordseries.wordpress.com

Stay blessed and please share.
