Talking on Purpose with Torrie the Podcast & Internet Show

🎧 30 Days in Review Part 2. Season 7 Episode 8

🔻🔻🔻🔻
 
Prayer is the solution for everything. The peace and joy come from the internal knowledge that this life is temporary. Perhaps in our work environment, the bullies we experience online, in business, and in ministry are afraid because your character and excellence speak louder than their title.

When divided in any area of our life, we need to invest in prayer. Take everything to the Lord and ask Him what we are blocking because of fear.
While we wait on the Lord for His answer, remember the truth of His Word. 2 Timothy 3:16 tells us, All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.

What new habits or systems have you created? Check over your notes and look back in those journals. You may not be aware of the incredible ways God has transformed areas of your life to align with His divine plan.

“The hamster wheel only works for one thing- losing pounds. Pounds can be translated into money, talent, and people. What are you losing because of procrastination?

🟥 Take Action

Procrastination, where does it start?

By asking ourselves what responsibility we want to avoid.

Are you a person who sees something that needs completion and does it? Do you encourage growth and complete tasks systematically? Are you often frustrated with the lack of urgency from your team? Then today’s mentoring session is for you? Pull up a seat, grab your Bible, a notebook, and pour a cup of tea. I will share three ways I jump over the hurdles of procrastination, contentment, and poor leadership while staying in my lane using scripture, prayer, and love. 

  • Clarify

Step One 

Hurdles of Procrastination-  Identify what you want to avoid. Use Colossians 3:32 to motivate you.

  • Organize

Step Two 
To overcome complacency meditate on Revelation 3:15-16.

  • Prepare

Step Three 
Stay in your lane and lead by using Philippians 2:3.

  ~Torrie Slaughter


Scriptures for Meditation:

Parable of the Ten Virgins (Matthew 25:1-13), Faithful Servant (Luke 12:35-48), Wedding Feast (Matthew 22:1-14)

James 4:17 “So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is a sin.”

Hebrews 12:11 “For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.”

A Daily Purpose

Bible Study & Devotional Day 43

🔴 All Are Welcome!

Guiding Scripture: Proverbs 9:6 Leave your simple ways, and live,
and walk in the way of insight.”

When we plan to have guests our home gets a thorough cleansing; everything from the bathrooms to the fish tank is cleaned. Extra care goes to the guest bedroom, and we restock all the pantry items. Fresh flowers, chocolates, and scented candles amp up the ambiance.

We are ready to entertain!


But our guests are critical and self-righteous, picking at all our efforts. We did not do enough. The overtures were not received with love, and we missed some details.

  • Criticism is the expression of disapproval of someone or something based on perceived faults or mistakes.
  • Self-righteousness is being convinced of one’s righteousness, especially in contrast with others’ actions and beliefs: narrow-mindedly moralistic.
  • Refine to improve (something) by making small changes.

God grants wisdom to those who diligently seek Him.

If we do everything unto the Lord, the criticism we receive has a strainer attached. We can evaluate what we did and adjust accordingly without becoming bitter.

As Christ-followers, if we never minister to those wallowing in their sin of self-righteousness, how will they be transformed?

How do we help? By sharing our redemption stories, leading others to the solid teaching of God’s Word, and not withholding tools. We may not know the exact spiritual make-up of our guests, but God does.

Wisdom Teaches:


We have a responsibility to be prepared for the coming of Christ. If we stay ready, humble, and lean into our Lord’s wisdom, we can enjoy fellowship with Him. His character’s truth reveals that He is a God of order, justice, mercy, grace, and love. When He prepares His feast and calls you to sit at the table, will you criticize?

🔴 WOE! Spiritual Blindness

 Guiding Scripture: Matthew 23:23-26

A blind guide does not see God’s truth clearly and does not have good spiritual eyesight. Blindness is the inability or unwillingness to discern or judge, to have no regard for rational guidance, and to lack control of consciousness.

A blind person has no opening for light. They have retreated into their wisdom.Spiritually mature and balanced Christ-followers must speak out against those who are leading with their ego. The path is sure to be disastrous.

How do you know if you are following a blind leader?

Ask God!

He will reveal the patterns of behavior and their desire to rule a self-imagined kingdom.

Matthew 15:14 “Let them alone; they are blind guides. And if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit.”


Matthew 23:24-25 “You blind guides, straining out a gnat and swallowing a camel! 25 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and the plate, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. “


It is possible to obey the details of the laws but still be disobedient in our general behavior. For example, we could be very precise and faithful about giving 10% but refuse to humble ourselves to seek God to lead according to His will.
We are all in need of God’s incredible mercy. If we extend compassion to our neighbors, we can remove pride from our hearts and be the light Christ desires us to lead.

Are you being guided by a blind leader? Seek God in prayer, He will rescue you!

A couple things you can do while you wait, remember we serve a God of action:

  • Ask questions and plan as a family, group, committee, or congregation. Iron sharpens iron; the more input means a clear direction and agreement. (There is power in agreement.)
  • Give it time; if there is a bitterness within the body, it will become poisonous. Don’t allow a few to infect the whole. Fight for unity with love and respect.

A Best of Episode: Defining Present Moment Awareness the Podcast

SHOW NOTES:
www.OurGivenPurpose.com

👋 Hello, Person of Purpose! Thank you for participating in this ‘best of’ episode!

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. Defining Present Moment Awareness is an example of the framework we use to help you achieve that goal.  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 can handle the struggles we know lay ahead. Application is the key to pursuing a life of meaning!

 

🟥 The Message:

Defining Present Moment Awareness the Podcast. The message of today’s exclusive mentoring session is in three parts. We are defining Present Moment Awareness. We begin with the C of copping our purpose. Clarity means determining what we need to be aware of and using Psalm 37:5 as a frame. The O of copping our goal. We organize our thoughts by identifying common struggle areas—finally, the P of copping our purpose. We prepare with solutions. 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. 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:

Psalm 37:1-8 Proverbs 24:27
