Did you miss ‘Elements of Anger’ the 12-week Series? Start at the beginning! Are You Big Mad?

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:

Close to His Word, The Podcast. 

Psalm 143:1-12, Psalm 144:1-15 are prayers from King David. He was depressed, angry, afraid, and hopeless. Do you ever feel that way? These are two Psalms I remember when faced with uncertainty. I know God fulfilled His promises and guided King David. He can and will do the same for us.  

Take Action

As you listen to Close to His Word, I pray you will journal and keep your Bible close. As you reflect and meditate find ways you can apply His holy knowledge today! What are you struggling with? This is the time to actively seek the presence of God through His Holy Spirit. Gather with some friends and take turns glorifying God. It will not change the current circumstances but it will change how you see them.
