How often have you been told, ‘you don’t wear your shoes right?’ or ‘your hair cannot be braided backwards like a boy or you look like a girl in that pink shirt?’
Many of us have attested to this many a times and what I have discovered, it has nothing to do with where you live or the colour of your skin. You may be thinking, ‘where is she going with all this?’ Well, as the saying goes, you live and you learn. Through living, God have granted me revelations to see with clarity the things I could not have understood outside of his spirit.
As a young woman, with loosed- lace Reebok Sneakers, you are being told, ‘You don’t wear your shoes right?’ Then it propels you to ask yourself, are you different? One question lead to the next, seeds being planted, seeds being watered, and as the days go by and years, you have observed just what they spoke, ‘You don’t wear your shoes right.’ Then you start to act the part and then and only then you start to wear your shoes right. Let me explain.
The statement, ‘You don’t wear your shoes right,’ has fallen into the category of World conformation. What this statement does is to refurbish the mind with distortion and doubts as to who you truly are and who God have created you to be. I am not saying that your mother out of cruelty have birth a distorted soul but what I am saying is even your mother have been enslaved to distortion of the mind. When your mind is distorted, your whole world and normality have become deformed. The moment those words gush through your ears and feed your mind, all you could ask yourself is, ‘Why don’t I wear my shoes right?’ Then it forces you to look blindsided at familiarity, what is around you, what you see daily as you awake and as you approach life’s journey? Then to your discovery, your dad, ‘wears his shoes right.’ To be sure of your discovery, you ask the question, ‘Daddy is that how you should wear your sneakers, with loosed lace and gagging tongue?’ To your satisfaction the answer you received settles your doubts and now you have become sure that you are a reflection of your dad. As the years past, more and more you have been wearing your shoes right, you have been wearing your clothes wrong and so more and more you understand how to adjust to the concerns of society and have now become grown to decide, you were created to be the boy you have always thought you were better at wearing those shoes, because you wore those shoes right from the eyes of a boy. The brain is such a power – house that whatever it grabs, it holds for life until you have decided to let go of distorted conformation. With few words and one statement spoken came the birth of a lesbian, distorted sexuality, distorted identity, distorted mind and distorted spirituality because not only are you physically a homosexual but have grown to be a plethora of divination spirits and the spirit of homosexuality walks and talks with you as you chose to, ‘Wear your shoes right.’
We ought to take our tongue seriously, surely I am not making reference to the so-called pleasurable acts of a lesbian but in general I am making reference to the life of humanity. The words we speak becomes a monument of our experiences, let us practice to speak life and what is truth, godly truth in our lives and the lives of those around us because whether or not you want to believe this, your future is dependent on the words you speak. Imagine the flip side. ‘Hannah, why is your lace loosed and shoe tongue gags?’ ‘In that instance Hannah could say, well mom I feel more comfortable like this, it is an in- thing now.’ ‘Hannah I know it may be an in-thing but there is a higher chance or possibility that your lace being loose may trip you and you may hurt yourself.’ ‘You are beautiful and you don’t need to do everything that others may be doing, be yourself. Words of encouragement always take us to a place of reflection and evaluation of ourselves. While daunting words of de-motivation pushes you to a place of rebellion, distortion and blindsided-compromisation.
Isaiah 45: 9-12 says, ‘Woe to him who quarrels with his Maker, to him who is but a potsherd among the potsherds on the ground. Does the clay say to the potter, ‘what are you making?’ ‘Does your work say he has no hands?’ Woe to him who says to his father, what have you begotten?’ ‘Or his mother, what have you brought to birth?’ This is what the Lord says, the Holy one of Israel, and its maker. Concerning things to come, ‘do you question me about my children or give me orders about the work of my hands?’ It is I who made the earth and created mankind upon it. My own hands stretched out the Heavens. I marshalled their starry hosts.
Why do you Lesbian, Gay, Transgender and Bi-Sexual believe that you hold the power to tell God, the sex or gender you want to be?’ ‘To curse your parents and rebel against your sexual organ, to lobby against your natural identity and question your innate self is a mental deformity caused by external distortional factors such as the very words spoken over or in your lives.
The question is, ‘What are you going to do about it?’ Are you going to accept these statements?
You don’t wear your shoes right
You look like a boy with your hair braided back
You look like a girl in that pink shirt
Are you going to become a walking mirror of distortion and deformity? Or are you going to open your eyes and see life from a new perspective? A transformed mind can only be attained by the spirit of God. Are you going to seek God for answers you have been longing for, for a change you have cheated yourself from, from a life you almost handed over to the spirit of Judas? The moment Judas killed himself was the moment he killed his purposed and destroyed that temple that God have religiously worked on for 6 days, 6 days of hard work since the time of inception, when he created Adam and Eve, he already had you in mind. Are you going to seek God for that change, to wear your clothes right, to wear your mind right, to wear your hair right, to wear your shoes right and to wear your life right?
Isaiah 45: 22 says, ‘Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God and there is no other.’
Isaiah 55: 6 says, ‘seek the Lord while he may be found, call upon him while he is near.
With God all things are possible and there is nothing too hard for him to do. There is no sin too big for him to forgive and allow him to begin his work in you. Like rehab, it is not going to be easy, no one said it was going to be easy but what was said, ‘All things are possible with God and his grace is sufficient for you, for his strength is made perfect in weakness. In him and only in him will you find life, do you want life? Seek him now.
Dear God, of all the things I have fallen prey to and have done, please forgive me for I have sinned against you. Help me to understand your truth and transformed my mind as I walk in your purpose. May you hear me in the day of trouble that I may be saved from any temptations that the devil have set out to devour me. Strengthen me O’Lord that I may resist the devil at all angles and place boldness in me that I may witness to others of your change in me. I thank you Lord for delivering me in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.
