Elements of Anger

Elements of Arrogance & Pride

Elements of Fear


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.

Fear: Just Don’t Do It, Part 2 The Podcast

SHOW NOTES:

🟥The Message:

The Situationship with Fear…

Define your relationship with God, the Creator. Of what are you afraid?

Planning is serious. The enemy is serious about distracting us and causing rebellion. He wants us because he has been defeated. The saying misery loves company is amplified with this truth. The enemy is here to kill, steal, and destroy. Is it time for you to properly arm yourself with the Word of God and combat Satan’s lies with the Truth?

Meditate plan mentally; consider: to think carefully about something.
Think carefully and consider God’s Word every moment of every day. He does not give us a spirit of fear but of power, love, and self-control. 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. 

 

 

🟥 This is a Move! By Brandon Lake, Tasha Cobbs Leonard, & Anthony Brown 

 

🟥 Take Action

Fear: Don’t Do It!, Part 1 the Podcast uses Bible scripture to refocus and realign. 

Step One Clarify
Define your relationship with God the Creator. What are you afraid of?

1 John 4:1 “Beloved do not believe every spirit but test the spirits to see whether they are from God for many false prophets have gone out into the world.”

🟡 Test or examine your thoughts.

Step Two Organize

Who or what has your emotional attention?

What will happen if you challenge the lie and ask God for the purpose of your day? Don’t be afraid to stand firm and overcome the trial of people-pleasing. 

Psalm 90:12 “So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. “

Step Three Prepare

What if you picked up your cross with the full knowledge that everything wasn’t going to be easy?

Ephesians 6:18 “Praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints.”

~Torrie Slaughter


Scripture to Study:🔻 1 John 4:1, Ephesians 5:10-11,Psalm 90:12, Psalm 39:4, 2Colossians 3:9-10, Ephesians 6:18,

A Word From the Host

“I am honored to share my story with you as these weekly videos continue. Talking about my past transgressions and witnessing to God’s healing and deliverance is therapeutic for me. 

This is my journey through pain, unforgiveness, anger, pride, arrogance, and fear. I believe the difficult situations I grew through helped me develop this strategy I am sharing with you. I continue to learn and become stronger in my faith. The relationship God sought to cultivate with me is transcendent. 

My Past:

→When I was 25 years old, my outer appearance defined me. I struggled with my identity because the purpose of life was abandoned to a rebellious worldly ambition. I didn’t know who I was. It took ten years before I woke up to the reality that I was dead in life. No matter the number of good deeds I performed, nothing would gain me any satisfaction until I surrendered to God. I was involved in a culture of self-deprecating, self-consuming, and irrational behavior. I repressed the feelings of anger and fear; that led to rebellious acts against God. With no direction or significance, I went on a dead-end journey to seek meaning in a life created by my circumstances.

 →It is now my passion to warn others against the travails of this world, and the proverbial carrots dangled overhead. Through prayer, meditation, education, and overall a real relationship with God, I offer a ministry dedicated to helping others reclaim their inheritance.

Purpose on the Go! Week 3

Hello, Person of Purpose!

New mentoring sessions premiered on Tuesday, September 1, 2020! Elements of Fear is the finale component. We will ask God to help us strategically move through this year. With God, all things are possible! The more we learn about Him, we discover the science of our internal and external behaviors. 

Plan and save the dates! ‘Purpose on the Go,’ week of September 14th! Our Given Purpose the Podcast! Talking on Purpose with Torrie the Podcast & Internet Show! Daily Bible Study with Purpose! Weekly News!

~Torrie


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
