It’s 1am in the morning and I changed my blog name again. I’m learning not to be indecisive but change is part of nature right? Change is the only thing that doesn’t change in nature so please bare with me and this time this name is staying.
I don’t know why I’m still awake but a passage from the Bible came across my mind and one thing led to another then I got the urge to type this.
I can’t remember the particular verse but I’ll paraphrase it.
If you want to give an offering to God and you remember you hurt your brother, you should leave your offering at the altar and go and make peace with him first.
The same way, if you want to pray and you’ve sinned, because we all sin, you have to ask God for forgiveness first before you begin to make supplications.
The same way, when you ask for things whether from God or your fellow man, you have to let go of some things to make room for what you ask for. At a point in your life you’ll have to cut off some things or let go of some things to get newer and better ones. It may be a habit, a character or even a person in your life, but you have to let go. You have to make room for that thing which you ask for or desire.
When you buy new clothes you’ll have to sort through your old ones to find out which ones you’re keeping and which ones you have to give out or discard right? This also applies to your everyday life.
The phrase ‘birds of the same feather flock together’ also applies here. If you’re an alcoholic and you have friends in your clique who are alcoholics and you want to change from that lifestyle you’ll have to leave that company because staying with them will draw back your progress of changing from that lifestyle whether you want to accept that fact or not.
Making room for what you ask is also equipping yourself with value which is attached to what you ask for. For example if you’re looking for a job you should have the adequate requirements for that job.
Making room for what you ask for also means having a positive mindset that would attract that thing you want. You’re mindset matters a lot. You want to pass an exam? You have to believe that you can pass that exam and put in the required work to pass that exam.
You know how when we started learning how to write we started with a pencil then graduated to using a pen to write. If you’re asking for a pen and you don’t know how to write, of what use is that pen?
In summary, the message I’m trying to pass across is that you should equip yourself with what you need to grow physically, spiritually, mentally and all round. Also, know when to let go of things so that there’s space for new and better ones. And lastly, have a positive mindset towards things.
Thanks for reading.
