I have a story for you about the power of the tongue and how it can literally speak things into existence.
A word of caution here folks… When you ask for something, you better be very specific, because you will get exactly what you asked for… Along with the things you didn’t ask for too!
This story relates to how the wife I asked for came into my life. The entire process shocked me and showed me how one can literally get what they ask for in life if they’re willing to “speak it into existence”.
I think after this story, you’ll agree that this was in no way a coincidence or a chance thing.
I was a shy young lad growing up and approaching women always made me nervous and break out into cold sweats. So for me, dating revolved around classified ads and telephone dating services… This was before the Internet became BIG.
I was born in Mississippi and raised all over the United States. My dad was in the Army and every 2-3 years we would move to a new place. In addition to the constant moves, we would go back to Mississippi every few years to see my grandparents.
As I got older, the one thing I noticed was how the women there always took care of ‘their’ men… They loved on them, fed them and catered to their every need.
Mind you, I was young and didn’t have any sense… The reality was, these men were a bunch of lazy dead beats!
But again, I was young and didn’t know any better.
But anyways, that was something that stood out to me and as a teenager, and after that, I always said I wanted to marry me a woman from Mississippi “because they knew how to take care of their men“. And I wanted a woman with braces. Don’t ask me how they came into being, I can’t remember.
As the years went by and I got older, I continued to say I wanted to marry a woman from Mississippi with braces, even while I was in the Air Force serving a 4 year tour.
I know, this is getting long so let’s fast forward to the late 90′s… I was out of the Air Force and no longer thinking about a woman from Mississippi with braces.
I was in school and trying to get a business going when I came across these telephone dating services.
As I indicated earlier, the Internet was still brand spanking new and I wasn’t on it much at that time. So the telephone was a great choice for me.
You basically dialed into these numbers and you could listen to voice messages of the girls describing themselves.
You pay a fee to access the system which allowed you to connect and leave messages on the girl’s voice-mail box.
Anyhow, one girl stood out… She indicated she loved horseback riding, scuba diving and outdoor hiking.
And I being a black man with many fine qualities myself, thought it strange to hear a black girl who loved horseback riding, scuba diving and outdoor hiking.
I thought this ‘chick’ would be an interesting one to meet.
So I left a message and she called me back; quickly I might add (you see, I had ‘game’ back in the day).
To make a long story short, we hooked up and went — bowling I think, and then we went out to shoot pool (billiards).
When I first saw her, I noticed she had braces… And since I’d stop thinking about women from Mississippi with braces, it didn’t click with me then…
But later during the date as we talked, she indicated she was from Gulfport… That’s Gulfport, Mississippi.
That’s when it dawned on me that I was talking to my wife… Whom I later married and currently have 5 kids with now.
The moral of the story…
Had I known what I know now about the power of the tongue, the power of your thoughts and the power of your mind… There would have been a few more qualities I would have asked for, since apparently, I was getting what I wanted.
And trust me on this one… You will get exactly what you asked for, too include the things you didn’t ask for.
So you might as well be very specific about your wants, and take even more time to outline the very specific things you DON’T want.
This woman wasn’t taking care of any man, LOL…
A few scriptures I found that validates the power we have over our own lives:
- Proverbs 18:21 – Death and life are in the power of the tongue
- John 1:1-51 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
- Genesis 1:1 -In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.
- Joel 3:10 – let the weak say, I am strong
With This Power Comes Great Responsibility
With the power of our tongue, we can literally speak into existence the life we want. And we can literally use this power to create anything we want in our lives.
