InkMann Press Series–Lessons, Blessings, & Weeds

“Diversions disguised as anything that would hinder you from the goal, purpose, plan, or process occurs when discipline fails to meet commitment.” –Kai Mann

The blessings in life happen when we position ourselves to receive more. When we start to allow what we learn to seep into our pores we can obtain all that life has to offer. It’s easy to get caught up in everyday life but when we learn to focus our attention on where we are and what we do, we don’t get distracted from the process.

At every stage of the growth process we are faced with situations that test the strength of our commitments. Financial woes, family members in need, a loss of a job, or people in general can disrupt our flow when we do not know our position or how to hold our position. Often when life’s trials and tribulations come we fold into the opposition and forget where we are and what we are doing. We tend to focus on all that is going on around us instead of the changes that we need to make within us. In doing this, we begin to lose our place. Our inability to focus and recognize the opportunity disguised in struggle often hinders our growth. We get stuck and often move backwards not realizing that we can still reach the height in which we seek.

Opposition in perspective reveals our strength and our character. When we operate in a state of awareness we are able to train ourselves to see opposition as opportunities thus decreasing the blow and effect they have upon our lives. It’s in this state that we most times can understand the reason why things happen which helps us to become better.

None of us are immune to tribulations of life However, we all handle them differently. Many of us allow what we go through to stop us, others to propel us, and many to fuel us. When I really think about it, it gives us a new skill set so to speak, thus it is imperative that we understand the lessons we learn in depth so that we can get it right. And the getting it right from the inside out is a blessing within itself. Many of us are distracted with the “when are things going to happen to me” question. But the answer to that question is that the blessings only really come when we take the time to reflect upon our under-developed strength and our developed strengths.

When we’ve done the work from the inside out is when we’re able to be more of a blessing to others. When we don’t take the time to absorb the lessons that we receive in life it’s easier to get distracted by the process which keeps us from moving forward. This brings about a stand still. We all know what happens when we stand still for too long, grass grows under our feet, and weeds grow around us.  It’s the weeds that represent those situations and people on the journey that for one reason or another distract us, keep us stuck, and prevent us from moving forward.

We must train and groom our minds daily to remove the weeds and replace them with healthier perspectives. It’s a part of the process and our responsibility that at every stage and on every level we to take the time to self assess. This level of action only comes with discipline, commitment, and consistency which we are all capable of. The process isn’t a quick one nor is easy, but again, we all can do it. Some lessons take longer than others while the need to reflect may also take just as long. When we try to rush the process we miss the lessons, the blessings, and often the positions that come with it.

When we’re in tight spaces we’re often being challenged to grow. Most of us want it to be over as quickly as possible but there are a certain few of us who understand that the lesson in the situation will help us to reach the next level. Basically in order to pass “Go” we’ve got to stop, reflect, learn, and grow. This process helps us to position ourselves for the next tight space or challenge. These tight spaces or challenges should simply be called ‘opportunities’ because that’s exactly what they are. You decide at which angle you’ll position yourself to see it as a challenge or opportunity and what you’ll do with it. Just remember how you choose to look at the situations in your life will determine if you’ll live in regret or joy.

Whenever we look at our lives as full of opportunities to grow and no longer allow outside stressors, pressures, or ‘weeds’ to distract us we make lasting changes. These lasting changes happen when we are disciplined and committed to the process.  It is our commitment level that determines the height at which we’ll reach. Those whose commitment levels are high not only reach the height at which they seek but they’ll be rewarded for what they have worked so hard to obtain.

Everything in life is a lesson. When the test come, don’t allow people, circumstances, or trials to distract you or take you off your path. Remove the weeds when they begin to grow and move forward as time permits.  Don’t rush the process as everything comes when you are ready, and if it does not, it just means that you still have something else that you must do.

 

 

Let it Rain


{My interpretation}

If he told us to be fruitful

and multiply

he must’ve put seed down

in us in order to do so

when the seed gets water

it is destiny revealed

but until that it is

destiny concealed

There are only two real seasons

seed time

or

harvest time

if your destiny hasn’t been manifested you are in

seed time

you have to die first

before you can bear fruit

I am not normal to the ground

I am in

if it didn’t grow naturally

then it had to be

planted

Did God plant me?

It’s not ordinary

it wouldn’t have happened

by itself

It normally wouldn’t grow

up in this type of

soil

But God says “I’m going to

force it to grow

that’s agriculture

But because God said

“Live”

He forced it to happen

God said “out of the

dry ground”

abuse

turmoil

pain

drugs

confusion

He forced it to happen

You have to understand that

you were planted

Before you had

a Bible

that sperm

out ran the rest

because you

were

planted

It was good that I have

been afflicted

had I not

I would not

know

that Glory of God

I didn’t like it

but I am better

for it

I couldn’t see my way out

cause I was planted

nothing buried

Don’t expect me to stay

buried

I have not been buried

I am planted in it

I may be planted here

but I ain’t staying here

I can’t do it because

I am gay

this is the way I hear it

if you want to know

Maybe if you heard it

like I did

you could understand

No weapon formed can

come against you

if you don’t mind

being different

He just watered my seed…

You can’t get blessed

because you don’t

obey

I have destiny

I have something

concealed in me

just through it out there

don’t judge

you’ll know who’s

got it by the

reaction

wonder who I’d be if I

was watered

There is a responsibility

in every blessing

the word is the water

that’s why it hasn’t

grown

Been trying to figure out

what’s wrong

Now comes the trauma

that the water

brings

the seed has no pain

there’s got to be some

discomfort

watering the seed

is trauma

to the soul

Growth is traumatic

I knew this

but I was hoping

it wasn’t so

you get watered

through exposure

If I was exposed to

what I could

be

I’ll never be the same

again

watering makes you make

changes

you can be watered

by opportunity

it will water

your destiny

exposed.

One man plants

another man waters

God gives the increase

you can’t get the finished

product

without the process

We are going to have some

stories to tell

when we get

there

I don’t owe anybody but

God

water each other

we have to serve

each other

give and it shall be

given to you

pressed down

&

shakin’

together

getting to the next level

ain’t easy

you have to really

have faith

I know this is about

growth

but you’re right

I’m stretching

it hurts to grow

it alienates you

you don’t fit in

people like you

as long as you fit

their standard

but when you outgrow

their environment

they don’t like you

“Goodbye!”

you ought to change too

you use different tools

for seed time

and harvest time

sowing equals weeping

bearing precious seeds

doubtless

you can’t have no doubt

you ca’t have ‘any’ doubt

you got to believe this

for yourself

I was created for this

and I don’t even know

what this iS

I believe it

It is your faith

not anyone else’s

I got to get the right

tools

faith, to bring it in

if I got the faith for it

but I can still bring it

in

No weapon formed against me

shall be able to prosper

I got faith for it

for 2015, I got faith

for it

I gotta “Rejoice”

you might sow it in tears

but you’ll reap in

Joy

can’t be miserable

I gotta snatch me

some joy

This is my NOW

Don’t work where I have not

given you permission

work in the area you’re

permitted

If it doesn’t bother you

anymore

that’s how you

know you’re coming

to the end

of a ‘thing’

it’s time for me to

offer it up

I don’t feel sorry for

myself

I offer it up

work it out

you cannot achieve

the promise

without the

process

the process brings you

to the promise

water what works in your life

Leave those dead bones

alone

you’re coming to a

Season

of

Greatness

Water what’s Divine

in you

Don’t waste the water

water what’s good

what’s just

what’s pure

what’s fruitful

Always look up

Don’t see the living

amongst the dead

God’s going to change me…
