#013 Journey to Purpose: Ordered Steps

I’m back! I know I have been away for quite some time now but if you will stay tuned over the next few weeks, I will fill you in on where I’ve been and what I’m doing now. It is going to be so exciting. I’m excited about what God is doing and I can’t wait to see what’s next. I sense a huge break is on the horizon for me and for you too. One of my goals today is to encourage my listeners that God is ordering our steps toward purpose. Sometimes we can endure difficult times and experience delays, rejections, denials, and silent treatments, which make us feel forgotten. Please know you are not forgotten and God will not disappoint. He may be quiet but I assure you he is up to something and it’s going to be grand. Continue reading

#011 Dubious Distraction of Offense

Greetings everyone. I pray you’ve received information of value from the segments about the distractions that derail purpose. If you will recall from Part 1 of our discussion on the Distraction of “Good Works”, we mentioned several types of distractions, including dubious distractions. “Dubious distractions” are distractions that come by way of a planned and assigned attack from the enemy, more specifically, offenses.

#010 Distraction of “Good Works” Part 2

Greetings everyone. I hope you’ve had a chance to listen to Part 1 of our segment the Distraction of “Good Works”. This week we are continuing with Part 2. I pray last week’s topic was helpful or at least gave cause for consideration.

#008 Fit for Purpose

Are you fit for purpose? Are you prepared for the calling that is on Your life? Well, not to worry. Although God allows us to see bits and pieces regarding our destiny or calling, He never reveals the processes involved in arriving at the designated place. Sometimes processing can feel like you are “Jason and the Argonauts” and you have to past the 12 test of character to acquire the golden egg… or was it a golden fleece? I don’t really remember. You can think of any treasure hunt movie where the hero is trying to acquire an ancient artifact and there are sure to be some riddles, puzzling problems, test of character, and some dicey villain trying to derail you or prevent you from succeeding on your mission. This is certainly how we may feel sometimes on our journey to purpose. There are important reasons why God takes us through processing. In this week’s podcast we discuss the importance of going through and being a willing participant in the process.

#007 Closed Doors and Grace for the Journey

Are you in a season of discovering purpose or discovering the next phase or purpose for your life? While on the journey for purpose we can face disappointments and experience emotional turmoil which often stems from closed doors. God gives us glimpses of our destiny but he never reveals the processes involved for the journey. The journey for purpose requires that we be steadfast in the midst of disappointments and emotional pain. Our minds filled with unending questions –when Lord when, what Lord what, how Lord how, and why Lord why, cause us angst.

We are required to be patient as God unfolds piece by piece our purpose and ultimate destiny. However, we can become so emotionally enthralled with the closed doors and lack of responses to our flurry of questions that we lose hope or belief in our destiny. We can’t grasp how any of what we’re going through is related to where we’re going to. It is a painful process but there is always grace on the journey.
