Free Your Mind.........



Yesterday after the message, I became a self-assigned hooligan! According to my wiki darling, in the soviet union, article 213 describes "hooliganism" as any deliberate behaviour which violates public order and expresses explicit disrespect towards the society. But today, I choose to define my hooliganism as a deliberate behavior that violates the order of a self-restrained mind and expresses explicit disrespect towards whatever makes my mind a prisoner.

Lol. Yeah, I must sound like I've absolutely lost it, but sometimes we've just gotta free our minds. Let there be a liberation of your mind today! No longer should your mind be a prisoner of your thoughts. Do you know that the reason we get depressed sometimes is because our minds get over-illustrative over a simple fact and we turn this simple fact into a complex thing??? No, now is the time for liberation. Today, let your mind be free. The book of Ecclesiastes chapter 1: 9-10 says (catch this):

"That which has been is what will be, that which is done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which it may be said, “See, this is new”? It has already been in ancient times before us"

Therefore liberate your mind and free your thoughts. What is happening to you right now that may seem so oh-so-sad and oh-so-difficult has happened in ancient times before, and I'm glad to say that the people of ancient times did get over their problems and become great. Bringing this close to home, take one quick look around you. You've seen testimonies: you've heard of the sick becoming well, you've heard of the blind being able to see again, you've heard of the poor becoming rich...and so many other miracles. What makes you think that your miracle isn't coming? Oh, YES it is! YES it is!!! It is definitely coming.

Today, I say liberate your mind. For I became a hooligan to my own mind last night. I jumped around greeting people like I was meeting them for the first time. I smiled, I laughed, and I danced. Because I heard a word. I heard the preacher say "All God ever wanted was to create someone that looked like Him." For God said when He created man, "let us make man in Our Image." I am made in His image. You are made in His image. Though we may be different, there is something that is perfected in each of us. Imagine that out of the billions of people in this world, God placed something special in everyone...something that we can bring to the world to make this world a better place.

So liberate your mind today. Though you are different, though you may be going through a lot of stuff, though your story may be different...the bottom line is you're very special and you have a destiny and a future in God's hands.


Don't let depression make you its prisoner. Become a hooligan against whatever makes your mind a prisoner today. Go against the dictations of an imprisoned mind. Question less, think big, and dream bigger. Let the restrictions of today be the joy of tomorrow.

to understand that who the son has set free is free indeed.

btw: i lurrrvve ur valentine post... God really needs to know that no matter who he brings into our lives... his place will be HIS place!!

cheers.

"Imagine that out of the billions of people in this world, God placed something special in everyone"................ something so special indeed, and in all the billions of people. The thoughts of such just makes me go waoh at God. Have a great week ahead missy.

rethots said...

Whoa!!! 'tis one word -liberate (your mind) but, it sure can make a whole world of difference to us.
Thanks for sharing.

Omosewa said...

Hey babe! True talk, i just read somewhere that most of the things bugging us now wont even matter in 5yrs let alone 15yrs. Im learning to lean on God completely...more of Him, less of me.

Have a blessed week!

tru stories

i wish i could free my mind with some people. i wish

Nyemoni said...

I'll certainly try babe...the devil is such a liar and some people just get in your face! But I will try to free my mind...Thanks for the message as usual...

Ms. Ken said...

Looking forward 2 being a 'hooligan'(daddy it was Jaycee dat taught me oh..lol)..I believe freeing your mind includes not letting the opinion of ppl stop you from doing what you want 2 do and therefore making you conform to the world.Living according to popular opinion is a very easy and common way of caging your mind...free it.
lovely post Jaycee...very gingering.

Jaycee said...

Prettylyf...it's true...freedom is sweet

Chichi...wowwwww...that scripture is so relevant to this post, thanks ~ "who the Son has set FREE is free indeed" Haleluyah!!!!

Rinsola...let me go WOAH with u then...lol...that makes TWO of us (if not all of us here)...:)

Rethots...*sigh*...just one word, "LIBERATE..." Kai!

Omosewa...do u know I was just saying to someone like two days ago, "God can change a situation in a matter of SECONDS. We may think our vision/dream/destiny/change is so far off...but a miracle only takes a second." Lol. How does that sound? So much less than 5 years or 10 yrs or 25 yrs.........those things bugging us won't be there anymore...lol. :) Have a blessed week SeWa!!!!

Fresh and Fab...I am thinking here that, "geezzzz, I think I know what he's on about..." He he...liberate ur mind, don't worry u can.

Nyemoni....kaiiii...it looks like u guys have guessed why I wrote this post. Sometimes people can just GET TO U. But the assumptions and days of indicating of "whose fault is this?" or "whose fault was that?" are OVERRRRRRRRRRR for me...lol. Those questions bug me down a lot...and 99% of those questions the people I'm bugging my mind about are not even HALF aware!!! What's the use? lol. Let go and let GOD! (My new theory).

Ms Ken...u want ur daddy to arrest me! Lollll...(loving ur conclusion!!!)

And even God is not moved by our 'perfect' analysis of issues or even people. He is only moved by our faith to cause changes. So why bug myself with unproductive thinking when I can be free?

I loved this post!! Preach Preacher!!!

muah. i love u darlin!!!!!!!!!!!

"Don't let depression make you its prisoner. Become a hooligan against whatever makes your mind a prisoner today. Go against the dictations of an imprisoned mind. Question less, think big, and dream bigger. Let the restrictions of today be the joy of tomorrow."

Please tell me that this was original. Because, this is something I have believed for years but have never been able to express so eloquently. As such, I am going to send it out to my circle of friends and attribute it to you.

Thanks for the constant insight!

Every battle starts with the mind. It all starts with our mindset. My favourite verse in the bible is this: "As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he."

darkelcee said...

If only this feat can be achieved?
hmmmm.

chioma said...

thanks for the devotinal..its so thoughtful of u!

Jaycee said...

Carlang...:)

Naija chickito...even God is not moved by our perfect analysis of issues or people...LOL. Sooo true. Issues or not, He will still be God...in the fullness of His POWER!!! So why bother abt the issues (or people)??? (insert a *freed* face)...:)

Mimi...muah, muah, muah....all over (I'm trying to barricade "his" pecks...he he..competition!!!!).

Solomonsydelle...awwww, yes it was original...thank God for words that can flow in such a random unplanned spur-of-the-moment prose...:)

Aworan...it always seems as though u take the words right out of my mouth...every battle BEGINS in our minds... That statement can never be underestimated! Which is why we need ultimate control over our minds, why we need to liberate and free our thoughts, and why we need to just "Let go and let God!"

Darkelcee...no, it really isn't easy to free our minds. But that's why it's such an easy target by the accuser! That's why it's also not going to be by our power or our might too...God has to help us...

anonymous gal...u go with ur new hooligan self (revised with a new definition)!!! Lollll...

Zephi...hooligans "R" us!!!! How's ur week going? Fantabulous I hope :)

MyStories...Amen. Hope ur week is going fantastic so far...:)

Webround...our minds will even be more liberated if we can always remember that verse right thurrr!!!

Chioma...u're very very welcome...I pray God goes above all that you can ever ask or imagine (in all ur secret passions and desires)...Amen.

Jaycee said...

Nikki...I'm doing great actually!!!! Trying to finish studying my Statistics Text-book so that I can relish in my freedom! :)

Ibo dude...aww, Amen. Those little words just blessed me too (thanks).

Onome...:)

Pink Satin...I'm trying to say somn to respond to what you said, but no words are coming out...all I know is that once upon a time I wanted a deep relationship with God and I'm so glad I finally did "get it." If you just keep believing in God, first that He exists, then you'll begin to experience Him more too...with little baby steps though(really ur comment made me think deep for a split second, that thing that u're seeing in me is a real-life testimony, really...a better person than I was before the r/ship came). I'm excited for u too...cos I can see u "getting it" and not merely just "wishing for it." I'm inspired by that little comment to even experience Him more...

Allied...only in secret...now it's an inside joke, the real hooligans out there might start mistaking me as part of their crew...ha ha ha!!! Thank God for bringing out a message that blessed you Allied...I'm happy :)

Bumight..."Hi Bumightttttttttttttttttt!!!!!! Welcome to Hooligans Anonymous!!!" Yippee!!! Here, u can express yourself and be FREE!!!!

Jaycee said...
