Praise Wednesday - Poem by Oyinbo

I've always referred to it as Crucible
For in it our flaming emotions boil
In it our big ideas broil
Even there, our thoughts & emotions dwell

Here (the mind) is where YOU are
Here is also where WHO YOU want to be stands
Indeed, here is where who you think you should be wanders
Still,here is where who you should be sleeps

The decisions you make, the ones you don't
The ones you ought to, the ones you can't
All controlled by this thing, so little, the MIND
The self-condemnation, the self-pity
The crippled will-power, the low self-esteem
All dictated by this thing, so little, the MIND

Victory over the mind
...What seems impossible
...Lies within
...In the mind

You ALONE can control this mind that so easily controls you
You ALONE can make up YOUR MIND to RE-MAKE your Mind.
For in it, lies the YOU the world awaits.
In it, the ideas that will leave your name carved in a stone
Still, in it is a character worth impersonating
Then a little prayer to seal the deal.

Guard your heart with all diligence for out of it comes the issues of life
The one thing that causes a struggle in the christian walk is the mind
It tells you that you can't do it, that you can't stay away from sin
And when you stray, it says HE will never forgive you.
Get angry at your mind & you tell 'it' like you would tell that boss who just got on your last nerve.
You can do it, you can stay away from sin or else the Bible wouldn't have said 'Be hold as I AM holy'
You can be great, you can get an A in that course
You can discipline yourself to stop drinking soda, to stick to your work out routine.
Take Charge of this thing we call the MIND.
