The Toxic Thinking Your Pride Wants to Keep Hidden! Part 1

Mentoring NOTES:
www.OurGivenPurpose.com

👋 Hello, Person of Purpose! 

You are actively participating in this 12-week session focused on arrogance and pride. Through these exclusive mentoring sessions, it is our hope that you are able to articulate your feelings in a productive way. Defining Present Moment Awareness is an example of the framework we use to help you achieve that goal.  Please share your thoughts in the comment section or on any of our social media pages. We want to hear from you! As we grow in emotional intelligence, we learn to clarify, organize, and prepare for the struggles we know lay ahead. Application is the key to pursuing a life of meaning!


 

🟥 Glossary:

Clarify -to make less confused.

Organize– arrange into a structured order

Prepare ready for use or consideration.

Arrogant– having or revealing an exaggerated sense of one’s own importance or abilities.

Prideful– having an excessively high opinion of oneself

Lofty– elevated status or superior having an arrogant, overbearing manner

 


🟥 The Message:

The Toxic Thinking Your Pride Wants to Keep Hidden! Part 1. In this session, we identify how negative thoughts begin, second, we use scripture to uncover the lies in those thoughts, and finally, we strategize how we will practice the truth. 

The design of these mentoring sessions is to introduce the idea and encourage exploration. I want you to be curious about the way you are thinking. The Bible verses and scriptural passages are examples of how you can use the Holy Bible to do this. 

 

 


 Clarify.Organize.Prepare.

Action Step One: Identify How Negative Thoughts Begin!  Using a simple exercise we learn how toxic thinking is fed.  2 Corinthians 10:5 Write down “take every thought captive to obey Christ”  and describe what that means to you. 

Action Step Two: Find the Lie! Make a conscious decision to hold your thoughts captive. This means you will not give your mind the freedom to run with its current course of filtering truth through your immediate fleeting feelings. Test your thoughts using Philippians 4:8

Action Step Three: Practice the Truth 2 Corinthians 12:20

What are the consequences of those thoughts, and how did we behave? 

Did our thoughts lead to fighting, jealousy, anger, hostility, slander, gossip, inflated ego, or disorder? How will Christ our Lord find you?


🔺Season 4 began with an overview of 2 Corinthians 12 in Elements of Arrogance and Pride 101 the Podcast. Our focal scripture for the next 12 weeks is 2 Corinthians 12:20. The Apostle Paul helps us because he was obedient to the will of God. Let’s glean from his messages to the people of Corinth today. We do not want our Lord and Savior to return, finding us in the same state of rebellion or wickedness. 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. 

 

🔺Scriptures in this episode:

2 Corinthians 10:5, Philippians 4:8-9, 2 Corinthians 12:20, Genesis 1:26, Acts 9:4

Daily Steps Towards Intentional Planning, The Podcast

SHOW NOTES:
www.OurGivenPurpose.com

👋 Hello, Person of Purpose! 

You are actively participating in this 12-week session focused on arrogance and pride. Through these exclusive mentoring sessions, it is our hope that you are able to articulate your feeling in a productive way.

🟥 The Message:

Defining Present Moment Awareness the Podcast. The message of today’s exclusive mentoring session comes to us from Proverbs 16:1-9. We use verse one to clarify, verse 2 to organize, and verse 9 to prepare.  

We begin with the C of copping our purpose. Clarity means determining what we need to be aware of and using Proverbs 16:1 as a frame. The O of copping our goal is found in Proverbs 16:2. We organize our thoughts by identifying areas to increase commitment. Finally, the P of copping our purpose with Proverbs 16:9 as an example of how to surrender to God.  The answers you provide to the journal prompts, and the exercise will guide you toward a different perspective; this is how we will Clarify.Organize.Prepare.

🔺This session began with an overview of 2 Corinthians 12 in Elements of Arrogance and Pride 101 the Podcast. Our focal scripture for the next 12 weeks is 2 Corinthians 12:20.

  4. Am I easily frustrated or irritated? 
  5. What change would be the most effective, and how committed am I to making the change?

Strategies:

1. Strategize with God! Sit down and lay everything before Him. Talk to our Lord about your anxieties, fears, and frustrations. Tell Him what you are excited about. Then ask how you can fulfill the assignment He has given you. Let God establish your plans.
2. Break your day into bite-sized pieces. Don’t try to tackle massive projects all at once. Set your phone timer or alarm and devote a constant focus to your task.
3. Listen to podcasts centered on the areas you want to develop.
4. Stop being reactive in the morning. Before picking your phone to check messages, emails, or other notifications, give God praise and adoration!

D. Prest. ON! an Interview with Derek Preston

Show Notes: Our Given Purpose the Podcast


Hello, Person of Purpose!

We are in week four! Thank you for committing to this process sending emails and sharing this content! You can continue to help by leaving a review or rating us on your favorite podcasting app. Thank you for your continued support!

🗒Are you ready to do your work? Listen to our current series ‘Elements of Arrogance & Pride‘!


Who is Derek Preston:

Derek is from Lynchburg, Virginia. One of his many talents is meeting people from all walks of life and making them feel unique. His artistry, both written and performed, provides his audience a glimpse into his psyche. He has met the acquaintance of several celebrities, including all the members of New Edition. Derek is a humble yet ambitious man of many talents, and his legacy will live. 


The Interview:

We are meeting Derek as a young man who can utter the words “those were the days” and not get smacked. LOL! Derek and I got sidetracked many times during this interview, which is just how we roll. However, to keep the context and focus pointed toward the goal, editing became useful. (You’re welcome)

He shared how he patiently waited to meet Johnny Gill and other stories of celebrity conversations. I have jokingly said Derek Preston is the Kevin Bacon of Virginia and beyond. If anyone plays the game, six degrees of separation, you understand. As we talked, I noticed that there is something more beneath the layers that Derek Preston possesses. His heart. Derek is kind to a fault and has the unique ability to make others feel good about themselves. While his word of purpose is legacy, I must note that ‘animate’ would be another. If you’ve ever seen Derek dance or perform, you have had the pleasure of seeing his spark come alive. 

The Session- ‘Elements of Arrogance and Pride’:

We are proud to air our third interview in season four, focusing on arrogance and pride. In our conversation, Derek shares how arrogance has served him well.

Keep the conversation going by sharing this episode with a friend. Talk about what sparked a curiosity within you.


1. What resonated with you and why?
2. Did your friend have the same takeaway?
Derek shared how he leaves a legacy by showing up in the lives of those who need a paternal figure.
3. How are you developing a legacy?

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:

Elements of Anger: The Influence and the Result, Part Two: Who is influencing your attitude? What do you know about yourself? Anger can inform us in ways nothing else can. It starts with a simple question a tiny spark, triggered by a phrase or event that spirals us down the rabbit hole of time. Anger can transport us to the past. Yes, see what I learned to ask my Anger was, why now? 

Take Action

As you listen to Elements of Anger:The Influence and the Result, Part Two, 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. There are steps to gaining control over our feelings. In this final episode I encourage you to start a prayer journal, remember that prayer changes us, and that God is our Supplier. We continue with the word study of our focal scripture, James 1:19-21.

  ~Torrie


Scriptures in this episode:

James 1:19-21


 Journal Prompts: YES or No (Allow your responses to lead you into prayer)

  1. I often feel insecure when others bring attention to my unfinished projects.

  3. Several factors outside of my control influence my decisions. 
  4. I am afraid to be vulnerable.
  5. I don’t like what I see in the mirror.
  6. I subtly remind people how clever I am.
  7. I have difficulty accepting another perspective if it challenges my views.
  8. I must assert my authority at all times to feel important.
  9. I don’t deserve the people God has placed in my life.
