    Living Between Extremes: Why Your Choice Matters

    Living Between Extremes: Why Your Choice Matters

    👋 In This Mentoring Session
    Extremes, we've all fallen victim to being on one side or the other without thinking about our imbalance—the flood or drought mentality. We will use scripture to acknowledge the problem of wavering between two extremes and seek balance from a place of love.


    Between Extremes
    A flood is an overflowing of water beyond its normal confines and arrives in overwhelming amounts or quantities. Experiencing an overflow of anything could be defined as a flood: emotional floods- financial floods- or spiritual floods.In contrast- a drought is a prolonged period of abnormally low rainfall, leading to a water shortage. Drought is the absence of a specified thing or the complete opposite of an overflow of emotions, finances, or not feeling God's presence.

    Here are some questions to consider:

    How am I going beyond moderation and reason in my thoughts and behaviors?
    In what contest am I competing?

    God deserves our time, effort, and energy. Are you going to remain silent or declare God as you King?

    What's Underneath? Unpacking Procrastination

    What's Underneath? Unpacking Procrastination

    SHOW NOTES: www.ourgivenpurpose.com
    👋 Hello incredible people, and welcome to season 8 of Our Given Purpose the Podcast on a new platform! Same content different place. We hope you will share, subscribe, and read your Bible! 
    What is the topic for today?:

    Minimizing Procrastination (Physical spaces)

    If we continue to procrastinate, the boxes we store up will steal valuable space and time from serving God and loving people. Matthew 6:21, For where your treasure is, there your heart will also be. God isn't forbidding wealth but the worship and boastfulness of it. There are so many examples in both the old and new Testament about the shameful behavior of wealth worship.

    Here are some questions to consider:

    What needs unpacking?
    Why are you waiting to gain clarity, organize your environment and prepare a space for others to experience Christ through you?
    Are you afraid to acknowledge what's in your boxes?

    Decluttering doesn't need to be a daunting task. Set a timer and take 30 minutes at the end of the day every day for a month. I can't begin to tell you what emptying your space to embrace peace, tranquility, and people does for your mind, body, and spirit.



    Pray and ask God to help you let go of the temporary stuff so you can focus on His eternal kingdom. Christ is waiting underneath. He doesn't want you to delay another moment of being in a relationship with Him.

    Scripture Reading: Luke 12:15, Matthew 6:19-21

    God deserves our time, effort, and energy. Will you purpose to focus on Him more?

    Guard Your Minimalism

    SHOW NOTES: www.ourgivenpurpose.com
    👋 We MOVED!!! Since the platform changed why not update the artwork as well? We hope you will continue to listen and participate by doing your work. It's a new day and we are excited you are walking this journey with us. 

    👋Hello incredible people, and welcome to season 8 of Our Given Purpose The Podcast, here we explore and discuss the four prevailing emotions that keep us from walking boldly towards your purpose. We use scripture and prayer to solve the issues. REMEMBER with God we can!
    What can we do?
    Clarify by acknowledging our limitations. Organize by abiding in our Abba Father. Prepare by submitting to God's will for our lives. Our Given Purpose is to utilize our gifts and talents to proclaim a message of love. We are living stones, and we can tell others our stories!
    On today's topic, Guard Your Minimalism, I'd like to share my struggle with clutter interrupting my time with God. If the idea of letting go of physical stuff makes you anxious, please know that this is my story. I invited God to help me through the process, and so can you.

    Scripture Reading: Judges 7:1-8

    God deserves our time, effort, and energy. Will you purpose to focus on Him more?
