The Living Word...

Those VoicesÖ

© 2006 Tyrone Vincent Banks


Ever since I started reading the bible

My head has been filled with so many voices

Not the harmful ones that often tell us to do harm

But the righteous ones that tell me to do good


Iíve spent over 36 years learning all of the bad habits that I try now to disown

One habit would be the swearing


Hello, my name is Tyrone Banks and itís been 3 days since Iíve said my last 4 letter wordÖ


I know that the path that I am trying to walk will be a difficult one

Years and years of bad habits


Like a smoker to cigarette

And drinkers to drinkÖsome old habits ďdie hardĒ


Iím trying to modify my temperament

Iím slowly learning the ways of patience

If God was not patient with me then I would have surely ended up in a bad way


the 4 letter words that float within my head have been replaced by a strange conversation of prophets in which one will ask a question and another will analyze it and yet another will offer forth a theory and another an answer.


A long sermon has started within where I analyze the ancient words utilizing ancient forms of speech to come about an idea born of todayís Etymology.  I then place meaning in different examples and before that thought has concluded Ė another one begins.


At first Ė I thought that I was simply losing it

Now, Iíve realized that I am not losing it, but Iím loosing a part of it


The 4 letter words that roam within my cranium have been lost to a more righteous conversation.


I find myself reading the Bible and actually looking forward to the next read.


Iíve just finished the story of Isaac, son of Abraham and half-brother of Ishmael.  Iíve ventured through the lineage of Jacob and Esau.  I could not resist and I peaked at my next scheduled chapter about Joseph Ė the son of Jacob (Israel).  


Itís all coming together

Slowly and surely and in spite of some confusion


Itís coming together and making sense!


If those voices crowd out the sinful words that I have mastered then

I will welcome these voices of the Bible to consume my entire being and to make me a better person and a better Christian.

Hey Tyrone. Thanks for stopping by my den, and not posting LOL!
I just want to say, no matter how many times you fall, God is there to pick you up if you allow him to. We all struggle with bad habits, that's why God sent his only son; "Thank God for that!"
Thanks for sharing your heart with us. :o)

The bible is a book of such caliber it offers war and action, proverbs, instruction, romance, and a vision, it offers hope to the reader. it is a complete family history for every believer that grasps its truths. Think on these things that are pure, good, and righteousness when we read from the word one cannot help but to be spiritualy challenged and come into a transformation. This is powerful reading you penned I enjoyed the victory you are accomplishing by renewing your mind to the word of God.

Set a watch, O Lord, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.

Ty for this piece.

Patience is a virtue...He gave it to us as a tool, then he granted us choice of usage.
You are safe among those voices, they speak softly but truthfully.
