Elements of Arrogance & Pride Weekly Devotional and News Vol 4.

Hello, Person of Purpose!

This week we aired our third interview of season 4, D. Prest. ON! an interview with Derek Preston. Derek is a spoken word artist with a story of emotional struggle. He vulnerably shared his formative years’ experience. The lack of acceptance forced created an introspection that led to his purpose of leaving a legacy. He has the heart to help young boys navigate their uniqueness and embrace who they are. 

Thursday, Our Given Purpose® aired responses to the question: How has COVID19 impacted your life? Each person was able to send me their audio recording, and the collection of voices is what I presented. I love how awesome God is! He uses everything and everyone to lead us. While we may think we are charting our own course, His divine power is orchestrating everything for His good.

Elements of Arrogance & Pride Lesson four Week four PDF

 

 


On Tuesday, January 7, 2020, Our Given Purpose, the Podcast we 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

Hello, People of Purpose!

Allow Torrie founder of Our Given Purpose® to help you gain clarity, organize your thoughts, and prepare to walk boldly in your purpose! Let me help you C.O.P. your purpose. 

The Message:

Present Moment Awareness: How COVID19 Impacted My Life, In today’s episode, we will C.O.P. our purpose by listening to a few special guests share their perspectives. We can gain clarity through the experience of others; some may say this is a wise practice.  I hope that as we continue throughout this year, you will understand the benefit of training your mind to be under your control and not at the whim of every event that happens in life. Preparation requires foreknowledge we prepare by creating pause points- ask yourself: Can I articulate what I want? It is O.K. to check in with yourself and process the information.  To be transformed by the renewing of our minds means we must do our work. Clarifying, organizing, and preparing to do our assignment each day takes strategic planning with God. 

Take Action

As you listen to Present Moment Awareness: How COVID19 Impacted My Life What did you hear that made you: Oh, Ah, or pause and ponder? Keep the conversation going by sharing this episode with a friend. Talk about what sparked a curiosity within you. The title of this Podcast includes a term that is unfamiliar to some. In today’s society, it is almost effortless to get distracted by our thoughts or spiral down in anxiousness, negativity, or be downright rude to ourselves. Being present means, you are listening and engaging with the now. Autopilot is a real challenge in our lives. Not remembering how you got to your destination, not recalling what you needed to do or responding to someone based on your previous negative experiences versus what positive things you learned from it. Before you speak or move into action, ask yourself if you are fully aware of what is happening.

 ~Torrie


 Journal Prompts:

 

  • Clarity- What has the quarantined forced you to notice?
  • Organize– What have you creatively developed to be a positive impact? 
  • Prepare- What are you doing to prepare if there is another mandated quarantine?
