R.E.S.P.E.C.T.... Find out what it means to God!

01/16/2010

     God told me something tonight that I had let slip from the forefront of my development. It's important and vital to long lasting growth.

"Respecting ineffective leaders is just as important as learning to BE an effective leader!" 

  • It's one thing to study to show thyself approved a workman not needing to be ashamed but rightly dividing the Word of Truth!

2 Timothy 2:15 (King James Version)


 15Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.


  • It's another to know that a leader could have done better and didn't. Or think that you may have done differently.  Or in any way criticize their leadership or decision. You cannot place a value of good or bad on their decision, it's not your place.

Romans 14:4
Who are you to judge another’s servant? To his own master he stands or falls. Indeed, he will be made to stand, for God is able to make him stand.



  • You simply see that it is their decision to make and ask God how you are going to fit yourself into or around it. In doing so you walk in the LOVE of Godand immediately put Psalms 91 and Psalms 103 and 2 Corinthians 9 into effect! 

Psalm 91

 7A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. 
  
Psalm 103

2...forget not all his benefits
6The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.  
10He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

2 Corinthians 9

 8And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:


  • When you do that, you activate THE BLESSING in your life. You will benefit from it no matter what! God will work that thing around and around until it works out for your benefit! 
 Romans 8:28
And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

  • SO many well meaning and deceived christians have misunderstood this verse and thought it was saying the exact opposite of what it said. 
    • They say things like: 
      • "Well I guess God has a lesson for me in this." 
      • Or 
      • "God is going to use this to teach me something." They often qoute this verse after saying this. 
    • What God is saying is NOT:
      • "I intended (or "Allowed") this because it'll be good for you. I know that broken leg hurts, but it's to teach you patience."
    • God is not a bully. 
      • He says that a good father doesn't give a rock when His kids ask him for bread. Luke 11:11
    • The Holy Spirit is the teacher of the church! Not situations!  
    • God is saying: "The thief comes to steal, kill, destroy... but I have come that they may have life, and life MORE ABUNDANTLY!"John 10:10 
    • I will work this out for your good DESPITE the devils attempt to take you out. Take a step back behind me, trust me, walk in love because I cannot work on your behalf if you violate the commandment of LOVE. I'll turn this on it's head and work it around and around until you benefit. Jail was NEVER God's will for Joseph, but He worked it and worked it until Joseph was promoted to 2nd to Pharaoh!

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Writing Prompt | Room and Bored

At the Heart Writers group meeting tonight, led by Lauren Stinton, we did a short writing prompt.

You have seven minutes to write (fiction or nonfiction) and it must include these three items/themes:

Jesus is Lord of allPrincessCat
Here is my result, with a bit of post-meeting editing and addition. Keep in mind, I wrote it in OneNote on my phone...

*** Room and Bored The light amplified through the double glass window pane, despite the clawed dusty drapes, warming Princess' furry belly. She was Queen of this castle and she held the honor with dignity.

Her human was a good servant. He brought her food at the appointed time. He changed her box. He performed his part admirably.

Then her life shattered.

Her human walked in the front door and laid a box on the table. "Princess, I have a surprise for you, " He said.

She rolled off the couch back and sauntered over. The pawed the box. It moved. She jumped back, "Moew," she cried.

A soft rumble came from the box.

Her hu…

Have you died yet today?

Recently, I said I wasn't religious but I did have a relationship with Jesus. The person replied that is a "textbook" response for a Christian; therefore, I am a Christian; therefore, I am religious.

I have to laugh because "religion" is the dead following of dead traditions. The difference between my two-way relationship with a real living person (Jesus) and a religious person is the difference between a Tree and a Motorcycle. They have nothing to do with one-another.

Yet, I can see how they get it. Religious people would read this passage and see something totally different than I see, yet we read the same passage.
...anyone who has died has been set free from sin... In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus... Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?

TEMAN


te'-man (teman, "on the right," i.e. "south"; Thaiman): The name of a district and town in the land of Edom, named after Teman the grandson of Esau, the son of his firstborn, Eliphaz (Genesis 36:11 1 Chronicles 1:36). A duke Teman is named among the chiefs or clans of Edom (Genesis 36:42 1 Chronicles 1:53). He does not however appear first, in the place of the firstborn. Husham of the land of the Temanites was one of the ancient kings of Edom (Genesis 36:34 1 Chronicles 1:45). From Obad 1:9 we gather that Teman was in the land of Esau (Edom). In Amos 1:12 it is named along with Bozrah, the capital of Edom. In Ezekiel 25:13 desolation is denounced upon Edom: "From Teman even unto Dedan shall they fall by the sword." Dedan being in the South, Teman must be sought in the North Eusebius, Onomasticon knows a district in the Gebalene region called Theman, and also a town with the same name, occupied by a Roman garrison, 1…
