No Money…No Honey!

By: Adenosine (M) |Time : April 13, 2019, 12:30:26 AM
Bees sting when they are threatened by the presence of a stranger, they suspect such is out to steal their honey…they wouldn’t trade their honey for anything because the honey represents their sense of being, sustenance and relevance. If bees could be that wise to protect their sense of pride I can’t understand why some humans would trade their “honey” for mere money. The answer is not far-fetched; Once the divine connection is altered, vision is altered…purpose is thwarted…destiny is truncated! When you don’t understand what your ‘honey’ is, you will become a servant of Money …unfortunately, money is a ruthless master. Your honey is what makes you “Dignified”…your sense of pride; in essence, our true wealth is in our sense of dignity which informs how we relate and work with others and ultimately defines the quality of the value we bring to the table. Money is fundamentally a means to an end, not the END… don’t be caught in the web of “If you no get money hide your face” rather “If your money is gotten through illicit means, hide your face…”.

Prostitution is as old as the world itself and a lot of people wonder why some women and girls choose to sell their bodies, “honey” for money…If you ask me, honestly, I’m not in a position to understand. In a bid to satisfy my longing desire, I visited a brothel in 2017 where I had an opportunity to interview a commercial sex worker in her late thirties. Thus far, that has been my toughest assignment as I had to pretend that I was not scared of the unprintable activities going on in that environment. Many of the occupants stared at me…my gait sold me out…they put up pugnacious attitudes to declare themselves unavailable for any “better- life talk”. I summoned the courage to move on to the available one that stood at a distance waiting for a customer. I walked up to her and was surprised as she smiled at me and asked me; how are you?  I quickly replied,” fine”…hmm…the smoke oozing from her chimney was thick enough to be cut through with a knife. I told her my mission and she boldly answered: “ Me I no get time for this talk wey no go bring money…I dey do this work to feed myself and look good..abi…wetin you wan make I do when I no see better work do?”.  I took a deep breath, hmmm…so she is aware that prostitution is not an enviable work yet she stuck to it, and as I tried to ask her another question about considering learning hand-craft, she fled off to initiate a transaction with a potential client who just walked in. I wondered again; who are the men who patronize commercial sex workers? I think the media should tilt the scale a bit and throw the searchlight on their customers!

Sequel to this experience, I conducted an interview on Engaging Commercial sex workers for social impact, on my radio show: Mindscope, with Mrs Uzoma Dania, Executive Director of Freedom Foundation, a faith-based, non-governmental organization committed to addressing the ever-mounting and staggering challenges of which human trafficking is a great concern in our society. I can never forget some profound statements, Mrs. Uzoma, made when I asked her a question; how can commercial sex workers be offered help? She responded, “ Only organizations or trained counselors are capable of helping them…You can’t help them until they are tired of the trade and ready to receive help… the real help involves detoxification of the mind, body, and soul. That’s what we do at Freedom Foundation; we rehabilitate them and prepare them for a new world of confidence and empowerment. It will surprise you that we have handled cases of teenagers. It’s appalling to know that commercial sex workers nowadays are not only at brothels, but many also are students in higher institutions, corporate executives in organizations …no matter your status if you need help, Freedom Foundation is ready to help you, contact us…”.

Frankly, it’s not what you face that matters in life but what you do with what you face. Some people stay in hopeless situations their whole lives without ever making a decision to seek God’s counsel to get through them. Dear friend, you need to understand that what you’re seeing is not what it is…there is the spiritual dimension to everything in life and this is what controls the physical. Open yourself to God through his word…his words are not ordinary…it’s not about the power of positive thinking…it’s about the power that quickens the dead! Your faith in God will distinguish you in life, make you stand out and have what others can only dream of…it improves the quality of your life tremendously.
 
You need to reconsider your ways if you believe that stolen water is sweet or bread eaten in secret is pleasant…sexual immorality or infidelity might seem like a sport to you, but the hard truth is that you are cheating on yourself. Here is a story that can enlighten your mind on what you really need to do;

“Mr. A gets up day after day, dresses, kisses his wife good-bye and goes to spend another day at an unfulfilling but well-paying job. He longs to add something to his life that will restore a sense of purpose, but he believes that his present circumstances determine the rest of his life. His practical mind is telling him life may offer him nothing more than a stable marriage and a secure job that provides a nice home for his family. He doesn’t know that his authentic more looks like as he strikes up a friendship with a new employee…Sharon. Within a few months, their friendship veers to an ultimate relationship that threatens Mr. A’s marriage and both their jobs. Mr. A’s unguided search for more, thrust him into an extramarital relationship when what he really longed for was to feel needed. His authentic more might have come from teaching a class or learning a new skill for personal enhancement. He may have invented a device to revolutionize the industry in which he works. Mr. A didn’t pursue his authentic more with intentionality rather he slipped into a destructive diversion that only appeared to have something to offer.”…T.D Jakes.

Seek your authentic more and make greater impact, there is a bigger footprint you can make during your short time on earth.

Then you gotta do something about the faith you've got else you get nowhere... You have to get out there and hustle. You have to work - change something about your routine. See?
