PROCESS OF ELIMINATION

By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

What one thing should I eliminate from my life that is holding me back from my full potential?
Am I on the path of something marvelous or something mediocre?
Am I running from something or to something?

Scan through gmail.
Friend’s name solicits interest.
Greeting is established through these three questions.
Bother.
I’m bothered.
First question ...
Disrupts, Interrupts, Erupts.
 Engages.

The immediacy of response communicates difficult revelation.
Settles in me,
unsettling me,
Simultaneously.
Ignorance is bliss.
Elimination is not.

Eliminations are often adverse enjoyments:
Booze to the alcoholic,
Cigarette to the chain smoker,
Porn site to the sexually addicted,
Cheeseburger to the overweight,
Word morsels to the gossip.

God insists,
We resist.
He says,
 Eliminate.
We procrastinate.

In doing so ...
We deteriorate.
~~~
Today’s the day.
Not tomorrow.
Quit settling for less,
More is calling.
Trade the mediocre for the marvelous.
Live again.
Dream again.
Eliminate in order to Experience...
What God has planned for you.

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
Romans 12:1-2
