Dying on The Vine

Unwanted, unpicked, stribbled, discolored, disfigured, and dead. The end of the life of those fruit that started in holy matrimony to the supply of steady nutrients but died ahead of time while on the vine. Attached yet not connected so the nutrients pass by nonstop and refuse to drop off at that spot. Is that you?

Why die on the vine? How did they die while on the vine? Good question and good answers reply, you may have started off in tact but something pulled you off. Yes, from fruit to life I switch, from garden reality to your reality. 

Why did you die on the vine? How did you die on the vine? How did your life become stribbled, discolored, sickly, or dead? Are you attached but disconnected?  Are you on the vine just hanging to prove a point or are you truly connected and receiving nutrients? If your life is dying or dead, check your connection. Check your surroundings there may be something cutting the flow of nutrients to your end. There may be a disconnect connected to you that has shut off your flow. Check your life! Check in back, in front, inside and out. Check your friends, decisions, church, work, words, thoughts, media,  and more. Something has cut off your flow and left you to die. Something or someone may be draining your nutrients and leaving you high and dry. Be careFul, full of caring but be careful that people are not always watching with cheer but with destructive intentions.





So, should I be alarmed by those other gods that the flourishing nail world representatives so freely flaunt? Should I allow their talents to grace my presence and all the while allow my God’s presence temporarily take a back seat? Maybe I am thinking too much into it all, maybe I should continue to use blind eyes while seeing that they are just as bolder than some of us Christians. What’s worst is in the modern-day salons, nail and hair, there is a lack of grander display of Who Christ is in that establishment. Christian salons claiming Christianity yet appealing to the world therefore displaying other gods. I am amazed that a brighter light has not shone on those who worship before all religions no matter who, to pocket the money that was received during a heartfelt prayer to the one and only God. I mean, we spend our money in the establishment that indirectly says I worship Buddha, they shout it from the roof tops in a whisper and display him for all to see. While the Christians are saying,” I pray to God and I trust Him” but I do not want to be “Too” spiritual so I will not play Christian music and display His word before all to see.

Don’t get me wrong I am not saying we worship their gods because we pay for a lovely service. However, I am saying we should fly our flags high in the face of their gods. We should speak in recognition to He is always is and will be. We must cast away fearful shame that clients may stray and worldliness will attract more. We must gather our Kingdom statues and place them in the forefront of our minds not to give any play to evil display. I AM A CHRISTIAN for all to see and I dare not be real, operate in integrity, and show MY GOD off. You may not have literally decided to mask God and reveal or comply to their god, but when you back burner the True God you represent theirs. So, while your feet are soaking and your nails are polished, sprinkle a little Christ in their seats, spread some of God’s glory while you be pampered. Speak Christ in the mist of those other gods. Remain liberated and do not allow imprisonment of this world. There should be no other god before the TRUE GOD, not in your mind, beliefs, or blinded eye. Open up, step up, stand out, cry out NO FREAKIN GOD WHATSOEVER shall outsource or out sell my GOD!

The Banana Tree

“It’s Fall” I thought to myself, “Isn’t it?” So why don’t I see the leaves of many colors or a grave infested with fallen shades? Maybe my time of year gauge has malfunctioned. Am I so out of sync as to miss the seasons changing? I guess that can be possible seeing as though my life has been severely busy with standstill traffic. Everyone in my life have intentions , I assume, to go places; yet they (we) are at a standstill. I wonder… What is it that causes us to close in on one another? What is it that allows us the nerve to depend on someone else’s speed in order to get where we desire to go? What makes us think that if we follow close we will get there sooner? I have an answer maybe a revelation or maybe out of piety who can tell? I answer with hopes that my fellow drivers (family) may hear me out. I answer with great expectations of open-mindedness and consideration. I say, stop being just a driver or just a follower. I say stop being an impatient and yet dependent road rager. I say be a part of the Banana Tree. Drive in the reality of who You are and operate as a whole. We can grow and go together if we move with undiluted and focused attention on our independent ways. Sooner than later we will all get to our arranged destination so let us not rush. Be ripened and sweet with pliability. Let go of horn honking annoyance and embrace quiet flourishing as we watch one another grow. Eventually and intentionally we will get to our purposes places. Like the Banana Tree we grow from a heart as a hand and operate individually yet in sync. If we grow in peaceful watch we can and shall expect calm division of the fingers. Individuality breeds destiny if we stay in the reality of knowing we are each destined for greatness. “Where on Earth did all that come from?” You ask, it came in a funnel. I have been graced with the ability to allow God’s gifts to be funneled from Him, to my heart and soul, to trickle down my hand, and drip from my fingers on to paper or keys, that will be read by many God created eyes. I accept that grace in any measure, at any time, for any reason, and in any season. #Godhasgotaholdonme #Godamazesme #savingnoface #operatingbygrace #Iwriteyouread #itswhatIdo
