This spirit that comes and goes with MONEY should not be allowed to anchor any human. How ambivalent it can be! I need no other spirit to tell me that such spirit cannot be the Holy Spirit. As in, how na?
Being broke is a good nudge, for me, and most times I cook the best meals on those days when I have no money to do the actual cooking. This cooking happens right on my mind of course… Free of charge, you’ll say?
My ingredients are always well sourced, carefully selected, patiently cooked, properly dished and irresistibly served. (well … verily verily I must say unto thee.. Thou shall not try to beat that in your mind.. Lol)
Me that I just finished serving Semo and Okra soup, with ugwu, crayfish, iru (locust beans), goat meat, assorted, dried fish and oporoko(stock fish) ; all fighting for space in the dish and for their final flight with the smooth Semo into the rightful quarter.
Sometimes, I even make them varieties, depending on the number of meal course that find its way into my head and on my food jotter, where it’s supposed to be kept for future manifestation, beyond this virtual something.
Whereas in reality, it takes me more determination and a super craving appetite to put effort together and cook something half as fantastic as what my jotter carries the moment money finally enters my purse.
The money in the equation makes the difference.
Appetite becomes pimped towards something different, something that may even be less interesting.
Now, here is the point ;
Most Humans tend to meditate only when their lives feel like they are falling apart, and when things eventually get better, meditation becomes a redundant practice, if at all.
Whereas meditation as a constant routine allows us to quiet our mind for the soul to speak out loud and clear. Here is a time to witness our thoughts and consciously pluck out and rid many of those things that don’t really belong there.
A believer has no other way than to constantly meditate upon the teachings and laws of God. It is important that we think deeply and reflect on what we believe and our actions. Without this introspection, we can forget the importance of living righteously and the lessons of the word of God.
The bible is so clear on this, meditation is not a seasonal practice but introspection must be done day and night, that the reflection of this might find a wholesome expression in our lives.
May the words of our mouth, and the meditation of our hearts be pleasing to God, Forever! Amen. 🙏
- How blessed is the one who does not follow the advice of the wicked, or stand in the pathway with sinners, or sit in the assembly of scoffers!
- Instead he finds pleasure in obeying the LORD’s commands; he meditates on his commands day and night.
- He is like a tree planted by flowing streams; it yields its fruit at the proper time, and its leaves never fall off. He succeeds in everything he attempts.
- Not so with the wicked! Instead they are like wind-driven chaff.
- For this reason the wicked cannot withstand judgment, nor can sinners join the assembly of the godly.
- Certainly the LORD guards the way of the godly, but the way of the wicked ends in destruction.
