In… or out… of season by Michael S. Tyrrell
November 14, 2017
Happy Tuesday, Wholetonians,
Michael here, writing to you from 35,000 feet via the wonders of GoGo technology! It has been a wild week, to say the least; I have been traveling a lot, and let me tell you … people are LOVING Wholetones. I just finished an amazing weekend conference of luminary Integrative medicine doctors and D.C.’s (Doctors of Chiropractic) called, “Get Your Life Back,” and I spoke at the awards gala, “Doctors Who Rock.”
It was a life-changing event. Now I am headed to Camarillo, California, to speak at the “Fusion Of Frequency” conference on Saturday. With all this activity during our busiest season of 2017, I started feeling a bit under the weather at the end of October. Which brings us to this weeks musing, “In—Or Out—Of Season.”
There was a viral video a couple of years ago where a lady was being interviewed as a witness to a fire. Her words, though funny, sum up my sentiments: “Lord Jesus, I got Bronchitis … Ain’t nobody got time fo dat!” Nobody likes irony; nobody has time to be sick, especially when they are flying every week. Realizing that our words, thoughts, and intentions, are “frequencies” I understood that I needed to “pull up my big boy pants,” board the plane, and push through … even though that was the LAST thing I wanted to do.
But just feeling out of sorts wasn’t the end of the potential obstacles. You see, last night, Sundui (my lifetime pal, keyboard, and horse head violin player) texted me at 11:00 pm letting me know that he couldn’t fly to California because his mom needed an emergency appendectomy. I told him not to worry (he was upset as he has never missed a date with me in 15 years!) and to focus on taking care of his mom.
Then, after a poor night’s sleep due to my illness, I woke up assuming I was flying out of the local airport. I was wrong, and the other airport was over an hour away. On my way down, a dump truck flipped a rock into my truck windshield, breaking it. By now, I am starting to wonder if I should just turn around and go home 🙂 But I pushed on, and my wife got me to the airport in time to make the flight.
Believe me … there is someone reading this newsletter today that REALLY needed to hear this. Often, the needs of others take precedent over your own!!! So you just press on. The apostle Paul says it this way, 2 Timothy 4:2 “Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage–with great patience and careful instruction.”
Friends, sometimes you are out of season (not at your best, sick, exhausted) in your busiest season! You have 2 choices, a) get in the fetal position and wait until your optimum, or b) rip the reverse out of your transmission and keep moving forward. Remember, all you have to do is make an effort; God will do the rest.
Either you’ll go and it will be blessed, or your flight won’t take off and you’ll have to return home, but either way, then (and only then) you can have no regrets. Hebrews 10:36, “You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.” God will make a way where there is no way … if He doesn’t, there is no way you’re going to get there anyway! Believing my perseverance will bear much fruit.
Until next week…
