LEFTOVERS…

image

Yaay! It’s weekend, phew what a long week, now I have time for God… Yeah we don’t have to say it but yeah our reactions helps… Im not innocent either…lol…but let me hit the nail on the head we sometimes love the world too much and the empty applause it gives us, so we give our leftover affections back to God.

You know how we go through some experiences, pains, heartbreaks and unpalatable stuff, and after it all, we exclaim “oh God” with tears and hurt like He was involved in the first place “left overs”…
There’s something about leftovers, the nutrients have been sucked out, you see I wonder how God feels when we do that, i mean when we have to give Him our leftover affections, well but He’s God yeah…but come to think of it, even we as humans usually give leftovers to our dogs we refuse to eat it seeing it as inferior…
Sometimes after the whole ” busy week ” we go for general service in church lift up holy hands and worship which is totally cool, but uncool when its a leftover, its a leftover when we actually never worshipped or thanked Him enough in private, its leftover when we catch ourselves rushing to pray God off cos you have some important appointment ‘He gave you’…*smile

See I want to wake up every morning and give Him the major part of the strength of the day by just talking with Him, I don’t want to come home with tired bones and emotions, with a broken relationship between my flesh and my spirit and sound like a broken record and just say hi to Him and bang the door to my dream world…

“Here’s what happens when you actually sit down to get to know a person better from time to time you actually meet them. You figure out if they’re real. The veil drops. You learn about them. If you are smart, you ask questions. You can approach God with the same mindset of a journalist He’d rather you dig for the details than take his sound bites and run.”
My conclusion is leftovers are usually for dogs and God takes you and i more seriously than that, so I ain’t ready to give Him fried rice without chicken *winks… & I aint ready to give Him anything that doesn’t have life!
You know what, even if you warm the leftovers its not always like the initial. Always give God your initial emotions, your initial strength as you wake, your initial everything same goes with tithe *winks… You know how our initials (name) can introduce or describe us, yeah same applies to who we give our initials to it defines the next and it defines us…
Ok Akela, you and this God, yeah I know right but I’m sorry there is God… Hehe…and He’s really bigger than us! And his word is full of marvelous pages of punch me in the face with your goodness… #selah

I NEED TRANSPORT FARE PLEASE…

3d global cargo transport concept isolated on white

And she said “…I told her I needed transport fare, well all I know is that she brought me here, Akela are you even listening to me”… I wasn’t even listening with what she was saying anymore, some other words in my thoughts transported me somewhere else and I had to snap out of it! Little did she know that the words coming out of her mouth, were already controlling my unseen ‘thoughts’. Wow this is what I learnt, that everything, I mean everything we say transports someone and you somewhere… but where? *SELAH*

I thought of how mothers talk to us as children even when weaning, whether we understand or not we conform with time, then we go to school, listen to different teachers and even course mates and suddenly we know a lot, have you not wondered how you don’t ordinarily think of some words, but when the occasion arises it just comes out blah! And then you be thinking “wow am I that good”…lol… ok so how did we know we are meant to write entrance exams into any school- words, either we were told or we read it… don’t you see that everything around where you are right now, have some words attached to it, I mean ‘name’…

That is it! I know we all know God created us with words, but what do we create in other people when we speak to them… God created us and gave us a mouth! Why? Don’t say to eat, because if you don’t speak at the market to get the ingredients to use to cook, trust me you ain’t gonna eat nothing… ok you say what if the person is dumb, who says gesticulations don’t communicate words?

It’s not just “show me your friends and I’ll tell you whom you are”, it’s I want to see how beautiful you are by the words you speak and you see beautiful things don’t ask for attention! Attention can’t just leave them! That’s why we all run back to God, because His creation (words) calls for a lot of attention that employs scientists too…

The day you stop seeing your words are created to transport someone somewhere else, you might as well quit… *sorry to say*…

Entertain the right words so long that you begin to imitate and ‘share our fares’… use your words to create beauty in yourself and help people move daily… and if you don’t have it yet, don’t just talk, search it out, read it, digest and meditate them, then speak it…before you have constipations…lol…

I don’t like it when I hear people say, “I wasn’t born with any gift…” non pas vrai du tout- not true at all… we are all born with the gift of words… *tongue out*

I know you also need words when you pray, not just words but the right words and sometimes you don’t have the words to say, sometimes you almost say rubbish…lol…, sometimes I start typing I don’t even have a ready write-up to share on my blog, but I give Him the letters and He then puts the words together, here is what I believe in this kind of situation; when my prayers are at their shortest, I believe God has more room to come in, and breathe into the spaces where I am lacking… but what do we fill those lacking spaces with… Inspiration? We all have to be God-ready! When you are pregnant with falsehood, it’s difficult to conceive the truth…

Your words are transport fares… spend it well…

LOVE YOU ALL ALWAYS
