Jealous Much?! The Podcast

SHOW NOTES:
👋 Hello, Person of Purpose!
We are excited to continue our faith journey with intention. Our focus this season will include three questions to spark retrospective conversation. While we clarify, organize, and prepare with God, let us be mindful of our thoughts, which become our actions. 

2020 provided us with great wisdom and insight to move forward. If you are new to our ministry, we welcome you! Please check out the noteworthy mentoring podcasts below to begin your partnership with our purposeful family. What area of your life needs refining?

Allow Our Given Purpose® to help you gain c.larity, o.rganize your thoughts, and p.repare to walk boldly in your purpose! Let us help you C.O.P. your purpose.

~Torrie


🟥 Take Action

Clarify (Galatians 5:13, Philippians 4:11-12)

How are we intentional about seeking contentment?

Organize (Ephesians 4:29, Colossians 3:9-10)

What are we thinking about and how does it hold up to the truth of God’s Word?

Prepare (Matthew 11:28-30, John 15:13, Ephesians 2:8)

Who sees our remorse for our sins? Are we motivated to save face or submit to Christ by behaving with a godly character and repentant heart?


🟥 The dictionary defines Envy as a desire to have a quality, possession, or other desirable attribute belonging to (someone else)

 

🟥 Notable Quotables: 

“Envy finds socially acceptable ways of expressing personal resentment.”~ Charles Swindoll

Theologian Thomas Lea’s Five Dangers for People who Live Without God:

  1. Life without God stifles the prayer life. 
  2. It makes them a friend of the world and an enemy of God. 
  3. They neglect God’s will in their lives.
  4.  Rebelling against God produces insult and slander of fellow believers. 
  5. It produces people who plan their lives without seeking God. 

What Can You Do?

Challenge the adversary’s lies by asking God to clarify His plan. We have the Creator’s likeness. We’ve had it since God molded and breathed life into Adam and took Adam’s rib to create Eve. Remember who you are in Christ and the purpose for which He made you.  ~Torrie Slaughter

Daily Bible Study with Purpose

🔴 Chase After God!

Bible Reading: Proverbs 4:1-27

 

Proverbs 4:25ESV  Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. 

 

 

 

 

Understanding- the power of abstract thought; intellect

Discover – find (something or someone) unexpectedly or in the course of a search.

 


The Learning Curve:

“The older I get, the more I see a straight path where I want to go. If you’re going to hunt elephants, don’t get off the trail for a rabbit. ”

~T. Boone Pickens

https://www.inspiringquotes.us/author/3471-t-boone-pickens

 

Rabbit trails are the infamous result of spontaneous thought.  The quest isn’t as well defined, and those who are listening may not be satisfied by the twists and turns. You may notice this more often when listening to someone reminisce about their life. This speech pattern is to be expected over a meal or while sitting on a porch swing drinking cups of tea. However, what if your teacher does this? Imagine asking a question and receiving a long-winded answer that leaves you scratching your head. You may wonder if he knew the answer or was too proud to want to research it.


Proverbs 4:25-27 Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. 26 Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure. 27 Do not swerve to the right or to the left; turn your foot away from evil. 


 

Many of us have taken to the internet to continue education. Being in a classroom surrounded by our peers is a luxury future generations may never experience.

How will you govern your day with only a webcam and unlimited possibilities to ponder? 

God knew of this season. He knew the time would come that His created beings would be left to our own devices, literally. Proverbs 4:25-27 reminds us to stay focused no matter the circumstance. We are to keep God as the center for all we do. 

King Solomon requested wisdom because he wanted to rule the land with fairness and be a king of justice. His godly wisdom was a sought after commodity in ancient times and serves us well now. Timeless advice and insight aren’t trending matters but practical guidance for all to follow. 

Ponder the path you’ve taken. Is it taking you straight to God’s Word, or is it enticing you to mentally wander down rabbit holes?

Daily Bible Study with Purpose

🔴 Plant Good Seeds

Bible Reading: Mark 4:3-9, Luke 8:5-8, and Matthew 13:1-9

Mark 4:14 The farmer plants seed by taking God’s word to others.

 

 

The seeds are being sprinkled ya’ll where are they falling? By the road, in shallow soil, in the thickets, or will they find a home in fertile soil unobstructed by anger, arrogance, pride, or fear.” ~Torrie Slaughter

I end every episode of Our Given Purpose® the Podcast with these words. If you are familiar with the Parable of the Sower found in Mark 4:3-9, Luke 8:5-8, and Matthew 13:1-9, you should feel a call to action. 🟢 Mark 4:14 The farmer plants seed by taking God’s word to others. What is stopping every person from proclaiming the message of our Most High God? The obvious answer is Christ has not returned, and that revelatory prophecy has not been fulfilled. However, I often wonder why Christ-followers rebel against the purpose of our existence. I’m not perfect; I am a sinner and seek forgiveness.

As you go through your day, think about the many ways you are planting seeds. What is planted in you will be manifested by the choices you make. Are you leading, teaching, guiding, or dictating, harassing, and belittling? Lack of emotional intelligence stunts our growth spiritually. Check your soil and identify who or what is growing without your knowledge.

This year Our Given Purpose® is focused on dealing with the root of our anger, arrogance, pride, and fear; through testimonies, interviews, devotionals, and unique collaborations.

 

Let’s prepare to strip down, humble ourselves, and do the work:

REMEMBER:

🔻 Always behave with love in mind.

Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?

A Word From the Host

“I am honored to share my story with you as these weekly videos continue. Talking about my past transgressions and witnessing to God’s healing and deliverance is therapeutic for me. 

This is my journey through pain, unforgiveness, anger, pride, arrogance, and fear. I believe the difficult situations I grew through helped me develop this strategy I am sharing with you. I continue to learn and become stronger in my faith. The relationship God sought to cultivate with me is transcendent. 

My Past:

→When I was 25 years old, my outer appearance defined me. I struggled with my identity because the purpose of life was abandoned to a rebellious worldly ambition. I didn’t know who I was. It took ten years before I woke up to the reality that I was dead in life. No matter the number of good deeds I performed, nothing would gain me any satisfaction until I surrendered to God. I was involved in a culture of self-deprecating, self-consuming, and irrational behavior. I repressed the feelings of anger and fear; that led to rebellious acts against God. With no direction or significance, I went on a dead-end journey to seek meaning in a life created by my circumstances.

 →It is now my passion to warn others against the travails of this world, and the proverbial carrots dangled overhead. Through prayer, meditation, education, and overall a real relationship with God, I offer a ministry dedicated to helping others reclaim their inheritance.

~Torrie
