where the writers are


     Oddly this is one of those blogs that came about while I was having a wonderful time chit-chatting with one of my sisters. She then stated how her Pastor was just saying (shout out to Pastor Miller) that all this hoopla about the essences of ones tresses, but what about what goes on in the mind underneath those tresses?

     Mysteriously as God would have it to be, I want be writing about the tresses in reference to NATURAL-RELAXED-FAKE, even though it appears that I will be. Fortunately for all of us, I’ll be applying this phrase to the spiritual essence of folk, as well as the physical essence of folk. Yet again, I’m taken back at how these blogs appear before me, and how I’ve learned how to self-apply them to my own life first, then to later write about them to you all.

     Thank you Jesus! Without his wisdom, and sometimes ruff justice (truth) I would be nothing, which would produce nothing. Jesus said it himself “For without Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5 NKJV). I only mentioned a partial of verse 5, because this part alone will bring about clarity to this phrase as we dive into it.

     Please allow me to group NATURAL-RELAXED-FAKE into three simple categories’. 1. Natural (original) boundless essence of creation. 2. Relaxed (diminish) the limited essence of creation. 3. Fake (replica) the transience of what appears to be good, but is evil. In so many words before Satan offered Adam and Eve to RELAX (diminish) and become a FAKE (replica) of what they used to be they were in a NATURAL state of free and good. “Let’s pause for a moment, and relish on this paragraph. By all means in your spare time read Genesis 3.

     As a result of evil befooling Gods beloved creation He would still yet, love the essence of what is NATURAL to a point that He would grant us the liberty to be woven once more into our NATURAL state through His one and only begotten son Jesus. “For God so loved the world he gave his only begotten son.” (John 3:16).

     Despite the fact that God gave us the one and only ultimate corrective measure on how to return to the NATURAL essence of Him doesn’t mean that everyone will sincerely partake of it. Some folk ignorantly or foolishly refuse to align with the corrective measure, and apply the freedom of choice that is involved in being NATURAL. “If the Son makes you natural, then you are natural indeed.” (John 8:36). Paraphrase mine.  The point is if you refuse to acknowledge NATURAL then you’ll just keep being RELAXED and FAKE.

      Please understand there is no way we can be NATURAL, while being RELAXED, or FAKE! “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil. Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness. Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.” (Isaiah 5:20) Let’s repeat this phenomenal verse aloud, a few times if need be. I find that repeating verses aloud grants us leverage over thoughts, and actions that state otherwise.

     Did you know that NATURAL-RELAXED-FAKE are forces that have the ability to usurp over one another according to the thought process. The word (Bible) of God is very clear on how we that are NATURAL are to approach our thought life that produces actions.  “Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:5).

     The word (Bible) of God frequently admonishes us to become NATURAL in our hearts whereby this will produce a disgust for RELAXED or FAKE. “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” (Philippians 2:12). We are to work NATURALLY at taking inventory of what emerges into our thoughts and our life.  All in all if you’re really NATURAL as many hurl (I used to be one of them back in the day that hurled NATURAL when in fact I was RELAXED and FAKE). Please get this! The NATURAL essence will always topple over the RELAXED or FAKE. “Therefore if anyone is in Christ he is a new creation, old things have passed away behold all things have become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17). As far as I’m concerned, this scripture alone debunks all the theories that state “it’s impossible for human beings to be totally free from one behavior to the next.”

     My friends, be reminded that whatever thoughts we concentrate on the most determines whether we are NATURAL-RELAXED-FAKE. If you listen to evil thoughts all day then your life will be govern by hate, lies, lust, deceit, drama, manipulation, vanity, abuse, etc. On the other hand, if you listen to the good thoughts all day then your life will be govern by love, truth, chastity, peace, obedience, favoritism, etc.

     For example it’s like starting your day out at the office with an unpleasant co-worker, and each time they display a unpleasant action, an evil thought emerges, and instead of concentrating on the action and the thought you willing denounce it by speaking or doing something pleasant.  I guarantee you at the end of the work day you can just about measure all the pleasant thoughts and good actions (NATURAL) that you enforced. Which most of time will measure out to 75% of the time you conquered the RELAXED and FAKE and 25% of the time you gave it life. When you think about it this way, you’re dictating your own freedom to express your NATURAL state of existence in the midst of someone else’s RELAXED or FAKE existence.    

     Let’s digest this partial verse “For without Me you can do nothing.” I mean really, this verse is so liberating that many of you should feel compelled right now not to ever again become RELAXED with lies, deceit, drama, gossip, manipulation, vanity, abuse, etc. And to shun away from FAKE everything that declares RELAXED is good.  “Do not be deceived: Evil company corrupts good habits.” (1 Corinthians 15:33). Sadly it taken me a long time to learn the simplicity of this direct verse, which if you really look at it Jesus is inspiring his followers to relinquish the RELAXED-FAKE essence of self, and partake of this huge opportunity to yet again become NATURAL by allowing His NATURAL to be lord over all RELAXED –FAKE essence.  

     Think about it for a moment when we are in our NATURAL essence, we have no reason to pretend, perpetrate, disguise, manipulate, betray, etc. Let’s stop for a brief moment, and pray. “Father God help me to inhabit in my NATURAL essence, while being conscious of dethroning all RELAXED and FAKE thoughts that I employ as well as when other folk employ them towards me. In Jesus name I pray.
