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. 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 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. 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:

Proverbs 16:1-9

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

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.

3. How are you developing a legacy?

Elements of Anger: The Influence and Result, the Podcast, Part 1

SHOW NOTES:
www.OurGivenPurpose.com
Leave a review on www.podchaser.com

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 One: 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 One, 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 emotions. I share an example of how I tamed my Anger. Clarify-Organize-Strategize. 

  ~Torrie


Scriptures in this episode:

James 1:19-21


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

  1. I only surround myself with people who agree with me.
  2. My social media platforms are full of positive influences that push me to think more about others.
  3. If something disturbs me while studying the Bible, I pray for clarity so I can understand it.
  4. I welcome challenges when it comes to my reasoning.
  5. I settle for an agreement to avoid conflict about my faith.
  6. I speak before I think of the consequences of my words.
  7. I have true faith and therfore keep the law of love.
  8. When confronted by the opposition, I display a calm demeanor.
  9. I believe my words don’t matter on social media, and I can write anything I want.
  10. Watching or listening to naughty or mischievous content does not affect my mood, behaviors, or thoughts.

Anger Keeps Receipts, The Podcast

www.OurGivenPurpose.com
Hello, People of Purpose!

◊Today’s episode is the follow-up to Anger Under the Spotlight, available on Youtube|Facebook Watch| IGTV. Suspicion makes us doubt and question everything. The wariness can cause friction, which can lead to bitterness and, finally, complacency. We go back to the “devil” we know and strive with greater difficulty to run in place. 

The Message:

In Anger Keeps Receipts, the Podcast we discuss how anger keeps an account of all the errors, faults, misdeeds, wrongdoings, offenses, and indiscretions. Anger has a way of making sure we never forget the thoughtless actions of others, all while blinding us to our responsibility. 

Devotional

We are presented with an example of proper behavior. If we behave as Christ, would our thoughts are also aligned with His. Suspicion and doubt will have no room in our plans. Read 2 Corinthians 4:1-18 and let the Holy Word guide your thoughts. 

Take Action

As you listen to Anger Keeps Receipts, the Podcast, 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. What does the Bible say about how you’re responding? Suspicion and doubt will rear their ugly heads, its time to let it expire. 

 ~Torrie


Scriptures in this episode:

James 1:19-21, 2 Corinthians 4:15-17, Proverbs 22:7, Luke 6:37-38, 1 Corinthians 13:6


Journal Prompt:
