Weekly News The Season 4 Finale!

Hello, Person of Purpose!

This week Our Given Purpose®, the ministry completed the series! We want to congratulate you on doing your work! Elements of Arrogance & Pride dealt with the emotional frustration of the spirit and flesh. Through wisdom, we can recognize the negative impact our behavior will have before we react impulsively. We hope that your curiosity has caused you to research your responses to become more unifying and less divisive. To err is human. If we acknowledge our faults and take responsibility for words, we become less careless. We encourage you to keep pressing toward the goal of holiness and trust God to guide your thoughts. Thank you for your willingness to try a different approach as you seek understanding.

~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

🟥 The Message:

Tracing Breadcrumbs, How Will You Be Found?, the Podcast. Today marks the end of season 4, and I want to congratulate you! We hope that you have experienced growth and identified areas of work. Taking responsibility for our words and actions is a sign of maturity. As humans, we make mistakes, say things at the wrong time, crave attention, and controversy because our flesh needs satisfying, yet God loves us and wants us to surrender our lives to Him. We will C.O.P.!  Cop our purpose today by breaking down this session into three actions or strategic mental moves. We are going to trace our breadcrumbs. Start by asking yourself. 1. Am I stale and hard? 2. Am I wet and soggy? 3. Am I pleasing and balanced?

Clarify.Organize.Prepare.

Action Step One: Ask God to help you clarify by making your thoughts less confusing

Action Step 2: Ask God to help you organize by putting your day in a structured order.

Action Step 3: Ask God to help you prepare by making you ready to encounter the difficulties of this world. 


🔺Scripture in this episode:

2 Corinthians 12:11-21

🔺Journal Prompts

  1. Have you ever felt pressured to boast about your abilities or who you were? Did you do it to glorify God or yourself? 
  2. Who are you revisiting with the truth so that others may be encouraged by your presence?
  3. Who is in your circle?  Can you make the same assertions as to the Apostle Paul?
  4. Do you fear people will always see the same unchanged, underdeveloped, arrogant, prideful, angry, combative person you once were? 
  5. Is the controversial debating of scripture helpful to those you speak?
  6. Do you find it beneficial to belittle the emotions of others to you feel righteous?

 

🔺Season 4 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.

Patterns the Intentions of Your Life, the Podcast

Mentoring 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 feelings in a productive way. Defining Present Moment Awareness is an example of the framework we use to help you achieve that goal.  Please 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 learn to clarify, organize, and prepare for the struggles we know lay ahead. Application is the key to pursuing a life of meaning!

 

🟥 Glossary:

Clarify -to make less confused.

Organize– arrange into a structured order

Prepare–  ready for use or consideration.

 

🟥 The Message:

Patterns the Intentions of Your Life, the Podcast. We will C.O.P.!  Cop our purpose today by breaking down this session into three actions or strategic mental moves. The goal of this session is to teach applicable techniques to help you become more aware of how the pattern of your deposits has arrogantly held you back.

Clarify.Organize.Prepare.

Action Step One: Identify the Pattern of Your Actions

Guard the deposit entrusted to you. Identify your pattern by asking God to help you find your root cause. We know humanity’s fall to sin was the overall root that we trace our failures. But for our individual or more tangible thinking, ask Him our Lord and Savior to guide you to understand your specific circumstance.


Action Step 2: Evaluate and Organize.

You have a story, you have a past event that you believe has shaped your behavior somehow.

Action Step 3: Research with heightened curiosity.

Guard the good deposit. What does that mean to you? In my mind map of this, I pulled out the words guard good deposit. I meditated on what that meant to me and started by defining those words to help my thoughts be anchored on God’s truth and not disorganized by what the world has made me believe.

🔺Scriptures in this episode:

2 Timothy 1:13-14, John 14:21, Colossians 1:29, 2 Corinthians 12:9

🔺Journal Prompts

  1. Test your mind and ask, have you protected it from damage?
  2. Are your qualities being used to the fullest measure? 
  3. What deposits do you believe are worth keeping safe? 
  4. Can you organize your thoughts? Are they true? 
  5. Think about your personal experience for a few moments. What have you excused?
  6. What is your story? Did you declare something that wasn’t worth your time to learn? 
  7.  Did you fear you would fail, or did you give up? 

 

🔺 Affirmations

John 14:21 “Whoever has my commandments and keeps them, he it is who loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.”

Jesus Affirms that He Promises the Holy Spirit! 

Colossians 1:29 “For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me.”

Paul Affirms through God that through the energy of Christ working in each of us we can teach and spread the Good news of His salvation.

2 Corinthians 12:9 But He said to me, My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

God through Paul affirms that in our weakness God’s power works best. We are the vessels.


🔺Season 4 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.

Elements of Arrogance & Pride Weekly Devotional/News

Hello, Person of Purpose!

This week Our Given Purpose®, the ministry held exclusive mentoring sessions via the podcast. The adversary uses powerful weapons, and once he has ignited the flame of anger, arrogance, pride, and especially fear- destruction is the outcome. Communication and healthy self-reflection are critical. We must not be silent or inflict our insecurities and narcissism onto others. Please keep God the priority as we follow Him. 

~Torrie

Pride an Unhealthy Craving for Wealth, the Podcast

Mentoring 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 feelings in a productive way. Defining Present Moment Awareness is an example of the framework we use to help you achieve that goal.  Please share your thoughts in the comment section or on any of our social media pages.

TWEET THIS: 1 John 3:17 But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?



🟥 Glossary:

Clarify -to make less confused.

Organize– arrange into a structured order

Prepare–  ready for use or consideration.

 

🟥 The Message:

Pride an Unhealthy Craving for Wealth. For this mentoring session, we are going to clarify, organize, and prepare with God what it means to arrogantly act with evil intentions and why it is in opposition to God. This session aims to teach applicable techniques to help you become more aware of how you use wealth as a weapon to bring others into submission.

Clarify.Organize.Prepare.

🟥Three key points:

  1. Read and study 1 Timothy 6
  2. Define what you are craving and how that is balanced with your godly ambitions.
  3. List the changes you can make, to tell the truth from a broader view. 

🟥 Journal Prompts:

  • Are words evil?
  • Do our thoughts bend toward morally or naturally evil?
  • Is it advancing the path of wrongdoing?

 

🟥 Clarify where your money goes.

  • Put others first think about who they come in contact with and cultivate another section of God’s garden.
  • Think about how your words affect others. While the truth is accurate, we can filter it through our biases and prejudices. Think before you speak.
  • A healthy degree of self-confidence is good. You were made in the image of God, and with Him, all things are possible. Pray fervently for direction to bring balance and order to your life. 

 

A selfless person goes beyond his concerns and empathizes with others. They are humble, have a broader view, genuinely listen to others, put themselves in others positions, say “we” instead of “I,” and celebrate success together and face the failure alone. They find pleasure in helping others to see happiness in their face.
