Hello, People of Purpose!

We at Our Given Purpose® are committed to providing uplifting and transformative content on these platforms we believe God is in control and submit to His will. We understand that means facing difficulty; however, we have the benefit of having God’s peace reside within our being. As you go throughout your day, please be aware of those who are struggling, perhaps financially, spiritually, or physically. Allow the Holy Spirit to guide you in your actions. We can be kind and compassionate, as well as cautious. Lean into the Holy Spirit, be still, and know that God is.


The Message:

Friends How Far Would You Go? This podcast originally aired on January 8, 2019. It serves as a reminder of how we can trust God for everything we do.Planning with God and checking in to be updated is WOW! Wisdom Over Woes! We can avoid possible hiccups if we check in with God. Eliezer was almost detained in bringing Rebekah back to Canaan. He had already given gifts of gold and silver. He was ready to leave the next day and return home. But Genesis 24:55-56 says, “But her brother and her mother said, “Let the girl stay with us a few days, say ten; afterward she may go.” He said to them, “Do not delay me since the Lord has prospered my way. Send me away that I may go to my master.”

Take Action

As you listen to Friends How Far Would You Go? , I pray you will journal and keep your Bible close. As you react, think about what you are feeling and use the Bible concordance to look up that specific emotion. All relationships require effort. They need time, planning, and sacrifice. Whether it’s family, friends, or co-workers, we have to plan that time and what we gain or give to those friendships. If you think about your closest friends right now, what do you have in common? How did you meet? How did you bond? Think about your immediate relationships and the mirror effects they have in your life. 


Scriptures in this episode:

Genesis 24:1-67

 Journal Prompts:

  1. What kind of friend am I?
  2. Can I follow through on impossible promises?
  3. Am I able to see beyond my feelings and give grace?
  4. Is God the focus of my heart and mind?

  1. Somethings need to be repeated and this is one of those lessons. Going the distance can be hard and when we are reminded of the outcome we become encouraged. Thanks. Love agape, Mom
