The Self In Control, A Mentoring Session

The Self In Control, A Mentoring Session
👋 Hello, Person of Purpose!

Hello Listeners, last week, I shared on Sprinkled Seeds one of my favorite lessons from Christ; I include it in almost every ending to these mentoring sessions. But I also leaked a little information about an impromptu surprise winter at the beach getaway. We are back, and the wisdom I received was profoundly impactful. If you have not heard Sprinkled Seeds, 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.

If you have not already subscribed, please do so. We are on all major platforms, including iHeartRadio, Pandora, and Amazon Music! The provider will notify you each time a new podcast is released! Thank you for being here and connecting with us.

What is self-control?

It is the ability to control oneself, particularly one’s emotions and desires or the expression of them in one’s behavior, especially in difficult situations.

Self -control- a measure or condition that keeps someone or something under control or within limits.


 Use 1 Corinthians 9:27 while in prayer and ask God to help bring clarity to your life.


Ask our Abba father to help you organize the boundaries you need to have in place to navigate through the various valleys in your life. (Reference Psalm 23:4)


Take your hand off the wheel that is going toward division and separation and let God steer it towards those who He has placed in your life to be a great help.(Reference 1 Peter 5:6-7)
