The Toothpaste Story

Uncle’Zook told us a story about his daughter who was to start middle school tomorrow, A lot of mixed feelings involved now, but no tears yet. We have decorated her locker, bought new uniforms, even surprised her with a brand new Wonder woman backpack (and you know what that does to a young girl). However, tonight just before bed, we do the most important pre-middle school task. I hold out a tube of her favourite toothpaste to her and she grabs it, thinking this is her one golden opportunity to lick toothpaste legally, Her face falls a little when I hand her a medium sized dish and ask her to squirt some toothpaste onto it. The moment she squirts to her heart’s satisfaction, I calmly asked her to put the toothpaste all back in the tube, She begins making dragging noises with her throat, amidst clearly saying, “But I can’t!”and ” it won’t be like it was before! “.

I quietly wait for her to finish and then say this:” You will remember this dish for the rest of your life cupcake. Your words have the power of life and death imbedded in them. As you go into middle school tomorrow, you are about to see just how much weight your words carry, You are going to have the opportunity to use your words to hurt, demean, slander and inflict pain on others. You’re also going to have the opportunity to heal, encourage, inspire and love others. You will occasionally make wrong choices, and it certainly matters how you handle the situation verbally. Remember when I said something really bad to your mummy the other day and she was sad all day baby?”. She gives a tight lipped nod accompanied with her famous evil look. I smile and continue, ” I caused her so much pain. Just like the toothpaste on this dish, once its out, there’s no going back on it, It can never be erased from the sands of time. Use your words carefully princess. When others want to be a careless about what they say, guard your words. Don’t forget you’re my special one. Decide tonight that you’re going to be a life-giver in middle school. Whatever happens, you’re my baby girl and I’m super proud of who you are and what you’re becoming”.

That was one hell of a story, wasn’t it? We have the opportunity to learn alongside my uncles daughter, a lesson no one considers is important to lay emphasis on. It took me making at least three bad word choices this week to the people who matter to me to get to this understanding and I thought to share (because that’s one of the reasons we are a blog). Let’s be the description of gentleness and compassion. Giving life to a world that so desperately needs it in words first. Like we genuinely always say at the mahdheebah brand: live☺, love❤ and laugh😀.

Yours Amazing,

Vessels!

Stories revolve around about what demons are and what they could actually do using people. The bible describes humans as vessels, a vessel according to the English dictionary is defined as a container, or an ornament for storing things. If this is so that means that who we appear to be in the physical doesn’t really matter, what matters is what is contained within us. Take for example a jewelry box, it is called a jewelry box because of what is inside of it that’s to say that if you were to replace the jewelry with say mechanical tools it will hence be called a tool box.
Now it is written that we are all created in the image and likeness of God, why then do we have some people behaving like devils? Something most of us don’t realize is the fact that God created us as free moral agents, This is to say that we have the will to choose who we believe in. Often, we ask why God wouldn’t just put an end to evil, surely just by uttering the words “evil be deceased!!!” it will be so. but that cannot be the case because it will cause a shift in paradigm however, God is not a man so you can’t predict him. I came across a book recently that I clearly was not supposed to and I read about an ancient doctrine of formulas “spells” to reincarnate old time religion, control weather, people and even communicate with the deceased, Being the very inquisitive person I was eager to find out more, then a notification popped up on my computer and phone simultaneously and it told me to reevaluate my will to inquire about this subject. like having a notification pop up on my phone when i was only making use of my laptop wasn’t creepy enough it then said you are adviced to put a hault in to this research but I can proceed at my own peril. Guys! This is not a joke, there are certain books that should never be read and knowledge that should never be assessed. the “necronomicor”, “777 and other qabalistic writings”, “the seven book of moses”, “the equinox” are just a few of those books.
Demons are real, evil is real but God is also real, it is essential you identify with a spiritual being (God precisely). I read in one of those books that it is very possible to possess an individual and control their actions and thoughts, rememberwe talked about being vessels earlier? Now what distinguishes a good person from a bad person is what is contained in them. If you’re an empty vessel I.e you’re neither for God nor the devil you’re prone to be possessed by a spiritual controlling entity.
Revisit the creation story in the book of genesis, we were moulded by God (empty vessels) then he breathed into our nostrils (possessed us with his own life) hence the reason we’re said to be in God’s image. Also notice how the bible describes our body as a temple for Christ? If your temple is not occupied by Christ it’ll be occupied by something else, and that’s why most people find themselves doing things they mostly don’t want to do.
We cannot be possessed by two different entities, if you have God dwelling in you there’s no room for evil to come in, and if you have evil dwelling in you there’s no room for Christ to come in and that’s why it’s important to be “born again” because during that process you renounce the devil that dwells within you and accept Jesus to come inside you.
This is why most times i narrate to people, Your battle is not with people, they are just vessels, your battle is with the devil inside them, so instead of fighting and screaming and trying to speak sense into them’ pray for them because most people don’t even know that they are not doing the right thing.
Blessings to you all☺💕
