*REWIND Talking on Purpose with Torrie the Podcast


🎧 Prayer is the Solution! A Season 7 REWIND Episode 

Prayer is the solution to our worries. It helps us focus on God and realign with His will for our lives. He has a divine plan, and we, as humans, are easily distracted. Worshiping our Lord encourages us to keep moving forward no matter the circumstances.” Torrie Slaughter
🎧 Listen as I share how the Word of the Lord encourages me to stop spinning in an unrighteous cycle and climb out of the drain of destruction.

🔴 Scriptures to Study: Psalm 6:1-10, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Genesis 3:5-7, Genesis 1:26-28
Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell.-Matthew 10:28
Daily Action Steps:
🔻C.larify by defining your work environment. Everything we do produces something. Who are you working with to achieve the goal of your purpose?
🔻O.rganize by arranging the details of your life’s work into a system, for example, scheduling your day, to begin with, prayer and meditation. Being yoked with our Lord means we must interact with Him.
🔻P.repare by equipping yourself with the tools available. We have many methods of staying on track. Use your smartphone to bring up scriptures. Change your social media habits to align with your intentions. Keep the seeds of your ideas covered until they have developed.

A Daily Purpose

Bible Study & Devotional Day 94

Written By Torrie Slaughter

Guiding Scripture: Luke 11:9-10

🔴Love is Inclusive

Warning: Worry, doubt, fear, shame, guilt- these emotions have the power to take up residency in our minds. They divide and define relationships preventing humility that keeps us from asking, seeking, knocking.

Jesus teaches us that some areas will not accept God’s blessing. (Matthew 13:58) As people, we are often blind to the miraculous wonders our Lord wants to provide. 

Proverbs 12:15 The way of fools seems right to them, but the wise listen to advice.

Brothers and Sisters:

  • What has been moved just out of your reach, causing you to fail?
  • What are you leaning on to keep your balance?  

If we ask the wrong people and seek to be more like this world by balancing on temporary things, we will collapse. It is a design of the enemy to distract us from right living. The pretenders are giving us wax fruit. The wax fruit of the pretenders looks beautiful and beneficial from a distance, but we are disappointed when we take a bite. Those who know their fate want to kill, steal, and destroy God’s children. 

But God!

He teaches us to be resilient and how to overcome the weapons formed against us.(Isaiah 54:17) Approach the throne of God with humility and keep asking, seeking, and knocking. The consequences of our actions will remain; however, our Lord forgives, and He will not let us starve. 

Meditate on Forgiveness

Prayer changes our focus. Remember God knows our thoughts, sees our deeds, and knows how we will react. As He taught His disciples, Christ Jesus leaves this message of forgiveness for us (Luke 11:4). Forgiveness is the act of setting aside punishment and resentment for an offense. It is a condition of repentance. The effect of forgiveness is the restoration of the parties involved to the former state of a relationship. We want to be restored to Christ our God first, which means we must forgive others. Forgiveness is a duty and limitless….yes that means repeated. 

By trusting in God for the right things, we can have confidence that our Lord will provide. Submit to His will to be done and receive the eternal reward. 


Prayer: Lord my God, we trust you to remove anything that hinders us from bearing fruit for You. We know you can do the impossible, help us in our unbelief that we may follow wholeheartedly after you. Father, you work all things together for good and will graciously give us all things. We will bear with one another and forgive each other as you; our Lord has forgiven us. We put on the love that binds everything together in perfect harmony. We are thankful. Amen.

A Daily Purpose

Bible Study & Devotional Day 93

Written By Torrie Slaughter

Guiding Scripture: Luke 10:25-37

🔴 What Is Your Heart Seen Doing? (A Revision from The Gospel of Luke 24 Day Devotional)

God guides us no matter how much we have sinned, how wretched our prayer life is, or how many times we ask for His help. He will forgive us and draw us nearer to Him. Once we acknowledge our sin, He wills us to seek correction. Our God is so amazing that He will continue to teach those that still haven’t figured out that His love is unconditional and everlasting.

In contrast

Have you ever tried to get out of the parking lot of a megachurch? We will quickly resume our regular driving habits, won’t we? (Honking our horns, rushing people ahead of us, and swerving in and out of traffic, hurrying to our next destination.) The overwhelming praise and adoration we showed while under the church roof is replaced with road rage. We conform to the impatient world, not thinking about what we saw or the joy we felt.

Perhaps that was true of the Priest and the Levite. Maybe going home from service at the Temple, but their worship was shallow. They sang with lifted hands and cried through prayers much as we do; however the seeds fell by the roadside. 

I remember being stuck in a parking lot after a service years ago.

The choir was excellent, and a dynamic speaker gave the sermon. After closing prayer, everyone seemed to have had their spirits fed and joy-filled the room. (I believe somewhere between the church doors and our vehicles, we allow the enemy to hitch a ride.) There were two outlets to exit the church parking lot, and with over 400 people attempting to do the same thing at the same time, you can imagine the chaos. No one could move, and we couldn’t figure out why. It wasn’t until we saw smoke rising in the air that we realized a car had broken down. Easy fix, right?…. I’m afraid not. With all the vehicles and thin patience, it took 45 minutes for the car to move.


Because everyone thought someone else was helping.

The Priest and the Levite were people who we hoped would have helped the half-dead man. But they ignored him. As believers, we think we would stop to assist anyone in need. The Holy Spirit may need to encourage our level of compassion. We can approach being helpful from a different point of view. By delegating responsibilities to trusted people as the Samaritan did. We don’t know where he was on his way to, but he slowed down long enough to do what God would have wanted.

We are the innkeepers keeping watch until Jesus’ second coming…

5 Steps to Regain Self-Control

SHOW NOTES: http://www.ourgivenpurpose.com
👋 Hello, Person of Purpose!

I am a believer that God gave us everything we need to live fruitful lives.

Our Lord didn’t promise an uncomplicated life but one of joyous connection to following His ways. Our Abba father blesses us in ways we can not comprehend. Our Given Purpose as a collective body within Christ is to encourage one another.

If you feel the rules keep changing, it’s an emotional response to a broken system. We can learn to sway with the wind or trust God to be with us in the storm in this life. Stand on the water with Jesus! Don’t let those being tossed to and fro by greed or deception entangle you. There is freedom with God, and His yoke is easy, and His burden is light.

5 Steps to Regain Self-Control in any Situation

(1) set standards, (2) measure performance, (3) compare performance to standards, (4) determine the reasons for deviations and then (5) take corrective action as needed

What changes do you need to make today?

Building Blocks:

Last week, on The Power of Love we used 1 John 4:7-21 as a foundational reading to guide us.

The nature of love is truth. We need not constantly hammer out details when we see things going arry. We need not place our neighbors in impossible situations. That isn’t love. The wickedness of pretending to love God while devising ways to have our cake and eat it to is not love. I have asked myself how can I keep going as a Christ follower? And the answer is to remember how much God the Father loves me. He loves you dear person of purpose. We can be confident and have no fear that the Lord our God loves each and every one of us. We have a responsibility to show that love. 

If you have not heard The Power of Love, please cue it up next. While you’ve got your phone go ahead and share this podcast with a friend via social media or as a text or email. 


Today’s topic of Self-Control would make for a great group discussion or family conversation.
