8,000 Miles to Uganda, The Evolution of Transformation with Mike LaFleur

Hello, People of Purpose!

We are in week nine! Thank you for committing to this process and for your emails, messages, and sharing this content with your friends! It would help us if you would leave a review or rate us on Podchaser. Thank you in advance for your continued support! 

The Testimony: I am excited to share this warm and friendly conversation with Mike LaFleur. He is a self-proclaimed regular guy trying to scrape by. Mike is a husband, father, military veteran, and earns a living in the software industry. As a congregant at All Nations Community Church, he and his wife are serving God in an impactful way. 

The Topics:

Mike shares his missionary experience from 2013, which was a step in surrender to God’s grace and mercy. Through a series of events, Mike realized there was more beyond the surface, and the people of Uganda left a lasting impression. As he opens up about his life, I hope you connect and reflect on your activities. Ask yourself what moments have changed you for the better and how you have continued to cultivate the wisdom God gave.

The Session:

As we continue to work through our anger, I pray we will become better equipped to act according to God’s intention. What do we need to look beyond? Can we find the similarities instead of focusing on the differences?

~Torrie

Hello People of Purpose!

Season three of Our Given Purpose the Podcast and Talking on Purpose with Torrie, focuses on identifying the emotional pitfalls that keep us from walking in and working on our given purpose.

I hope you will tune in every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday to study God’s Word, pray, reflect, and, most importantly, write! Journaling will provide a tangible way to keep track of our progress and thoughts throughout this year. Each Podcast and Internet show offers an opportunity to move beyond our limited human vision into a God-centered uninterrupted view.

On Tuesday, January 7, 2020, Our Given Purpose, the Podcast began the  course of identifying our major emotional blocks.  We start with anger and work our way through arrogance, pride, and fear. Each of these extreme emotions breeds and molds our character.  

This year my prayer is that we will all pause before we speak or react. In doing so, we become doers of the Word and not just hearers of it. James 1:19-21 is the foundation of this first 12 -week session

Anger Makes Me Sick-ER, The Podcast

http://www.ourgivnepurpose.com
Hello, People of Purpose!

◊In today’s episode, we turn the conversation inward to focus on the root of anger. Asking ourselves the question: how did we get here? Learning the origin is at the heart of this exploratory self-examination.
Let’s make positve changes! Our Given Purpose® , the ministry is intensifying the efforts to help you walk in your purpose. By taking control of anger, arrogance, pride, and fear; the four prevailing emotions that keep us chained to chaos.

Making Progress

We are in week five of anger, of placing it at the forefront of our minds. Our anger, in large part, is on trial, and by the end of this session, all the uncertainty, doubt, and trauma will prayerfully be neatly packaged in a way to make a decision, a choice of how we will deal with and recover from the person we call anger.

The Bridge

On Tuesday’s podcast, we focused on Psalm 38, a penitential Psalm known to express sorrow for sins or faults. We discussed why the psalmist was expressing such anguish and grief. It is believed Psalm 38 was written by, written to, or written for King David to communicate his distress over an abandoned purpose. The consequences of his sins were multiplied as he sought to cover them up.


The Threat

Anything that threatened my freedom, my independence, my worldly ideals caused bitter, sabatorial, anger, further harming my relationship with God. I was blind to that Biblical truth. Our focus scripture for Anger Makes Me Sicker is Psalm 40:12 “For evils without number surround me;
my sins have overtaken me so that I cannot see. They are more than the hairs of my head, and my heart has failed within me.”

~Torrie


Scriptures in this episode:

James 1:21, Psalm 40:12,Proverbs 10:12,Galatians 5:19-21,2 Samuel 13:2, Psalm 37:8

Journal Prompt:

What makes me sicker the actual illness or my belief about it?
