Mens Meetings Golden Corral 9 AM

Men's Meeting
Saturday12-4-2010
9AM Golden Corral

3 John 1:2
Prosper in ALL things...

We must learn to be dependent on God. As men we are often speaking about our Independence, but Godly men are DEPENDENT. We are not alone and do not do things in our own strength. We are NOT Self-Made-Men.

Mark 4:13-20 points out the key areas that keep us from being productive for God.
  1. Cares
    1. The things that weigh on our mental energy, bills, clothes, food, housing, gas for the car, etc.
  2. Deceit
    1. The lie that MONEY will solve the problem.
      1. If only I got that raise, promotion, new job... that would fix everything...
  3. Lusts
    1. Lust is pressure. 
      1. Pressure of wanting something
      2. Pressure to get it at any cost
      3. Pressure to abandon God's ways in order to get it. 
1st instance of the word "Thorns" in the bible is in Genesis 3:17-18.




17 Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’:
      “ Cursed
is the ground for your sake;
      In toil you shall eat
of it
      All the days of your life.

 18 Both thorns and thistles it shall bring forth for you,
      And you shall eat the herb of the field.



Work became hard and irritating because of the curse. However we are not bound to the curse any longer. Jesus redeemed us from the curse.

 Things come according to the level of and direction of our expectation.

 Expect = Come

LOVE God loves us.... God loves us.... GOD LOVES US!!!! In Genesis 1

In Ancient Hebrew Language there were NO CAPITOLS, Punctuations (!@#$%^&*), BOLD, ITALIC, yellow or pink highlighters...

The Ancient Hebrews used a language technique to point out something within a text. This was their version of highlighting something they wanted you to see. They started with reapeating lines followed by a break from the repeat. This break from the pattern is the JUMP OFF THE PAGE LOOK AT THIS!!!

You can see this through 1 Chronicles 4. So and so begat so and so begat so and so... JABEZ was more honorable...

3 Then God said, “Let there be
4 And God saw
6 Then God said, “Let there be
7 Thus God made
9 Then God said, “Let the waters
And God saw that it was good.
11 Then God said, “Let the earth
And God saw
.............

  26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image

Hear the Passion of God in this set up... God said let THE.... over and over... but not Man... No with man... LET US!!!!! It's as if God is saying WAIT.... LOOOK.... CHECK THIS OUT.... I'm going to jump in and get PERSONAL with this one.

We see in Genesis 2 that God personally got involved in forming man.
7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.
8 The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed.

Can you see Jesus on his hands and knees in the dust of His new earth creation and forming man as a sculptor forms a fine crafted statue? He takes his creation so personal that he breathes his OWN breath and spirit into him.

Clothing
He takes it so personal... that after the fall when Man had tried to clothe himself in inadequate leaves God killed the first animal to clothe Man and provide for him better than He chose for himself.

To this day Fallen Man's mind tries to provide for himself less and God is endeavoring to raise man's eyes to HIM as provider. God always wants better for us than we want for ourselves.

Galatians 3:13
Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us...

We do not work FOR a living. We work to be fruitful and multiply! Gen 1:28

Ephesians 4:28
Let him who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor, working with his hands what is good, that he may have something to give him who has need.

God Peels us as onions, just let the old dried crust fall off. Don't get into condemnation over it. Just let it go. Paul called this old stuff DUNG... Animal poo... Just let it go and move on. No need to feel bad when He points out something that needs to change. Just change... and move on freer and happier.


God made an animal to carry burdens. It's called a Jack-Ass. When we try to carry our own burdens by saying "I'll take care of this"... we make ourselves a Jack-Ass.

First Draft First Novel... Done! On to Edits...

So... I completed the first draft of my short novel White Noise - The Tower (Episode 1). 
You can read it (warts and all) below. I'm going to go back through and start editing (I already have). But it's mostly done now. I've also roughed out a book cover (we'll see if I stick with this direction).

Of course, I'm taking a big risk by calling it "Episode 1"... that means I have to write Episode 2, 3, & 4 at least. (That's where I have the story sketched out to at this point.

I hope you enjoy!

(Click here to read online) OR, email Me@DarrellWolfe.com and I'll put you on a list to be a beta reader when the final edits are done. 

Comment on this post or the Author Fun post about the Book Cover. Any feedback will be taken into consideration.


First round of critiques for Distortion Scene 1 "Street Noise"

One of the scariest things for most authors (especially fiction authors) to do is open their work to the blatant critique of others. The author got to know their work so well, they know the backstory (that never made it onto the page), etc.


This very intimacy makes them blind to the things the reader sees immediately.

As Ernest Hemingway famously said, “The first draft of anything is *crap.”
I put out the 1st scene of Distortion, "Street Noise", for a writers critique. It was quite illuminating. I chose not to take it personally but learn from each point. Some things I agreed with, some I didn't. Some were clear craft mistakes while others were stylistic choices I could take or leave.

I have a feeling that my re-write will be so much better due to this experience. I also found a critique buddy (Hey Ashleigh!) who I can work with as I go through re-writes.

Distortion Scene 1 "Street Noise" can be read in its current form (as of today) in the second draft on my It…

Vote @GovGaryJohnson for President in November 2016

Gary Johnson #Libertarian For President #LiveFree | #MakeAmericaSaneAgain
After much thought, review, and internal debate this past 12 months. I have taken a stand. I endorse Gary Johnson, Libertarian, for President of the United States of America. I will be voting Libertarian at every level (President, Senator, Mayor, School Board... etc) in November 2016.

I ask you to support a common sense approach, and to run from the Tyranny of Donald Trump AND Hillary Clinton (and their parties).

When men and women are free from government and corporate interference, they are the happiest and more prosperous people.

You and I may have honest intellectual disagreements on the moral quality of one choice or another, and we can debate and discuss those choices openly and freely in a free society.

However, as long as you are not harming my person or property, and I am not harming your person or property, we should not attempt to control each other through government force. We should each be free to…

I left the #GOP forever and it has nothing to do with Donald Trump.

#Election2016 Clarification:
I heard another talk radio guy (Grant Stinchfield) jump on the Trump Train this morning... another person claiming to be a conservative who is so blinded by his hate for Hillary Clinton, he cannot see that the devil he chose is worse than the one he rejects.

Hillary and Obama combined couldn't harm this country as bad as Trump could. That's what worries me most about this coming election. But here's the thing Grant doesn't get. He thinks I'm voting for Gary Johnson because of Trump.

I left the #GOP forever and it has nothing to do with Donald Trump.  Read on (HERE) to find out why...

An Open Letter: John Stumpf, Wells Fargo Board, and Policy Making Departments

On 12/28/13, I wrote the following letter to the then CEO & President of Wells Fargo, John Stumpf. It was in part, a response to the LA Times Article and the poor response from Wells Fargo leadership.

I later worked for the executive office and saw how they handle these letters. They assign them to a paper-pusher who could care less. They draft a form response, and it gets tallied in the statistics.

By the time it makes it to the CEO, it's only data in a pie chart. "We had 365 complaints this month. x number of complaints about checking, y number about sales practices, Etc." They tally it up, if it's not a big enough stat, it gets zero attention. Most things that do require attention get just enough to make it go away, but never deal with the root.

I was one of many hundreds who spoke up loudly and actively for years before 2013 and years after. The news cycle of 2016 showed that it cost them $185 Million dollars to ignore the feedback their frontline Team Membe…

I want a Hippopotas for Christmas!!!! http://buff.ly/1PhijYQ #Pokemon #Fan

I want a Hippopotas for Christmas!!!!  #Pokemon #Fan
OK... so several years ago I decided that the song "I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" was my favorite Christmas song.

Then, after learning about Hippos, I decided they were one of my favorite animals.

This morning, I found a Hippo Pokemon set to the Christmas song... and I just HAD to share!

Hello.... Welcome

I'm setting up this site to be a single HUB for all of my various creations. I'd rather not hand out a different business card to each person, as the topic of interest changes and I happen to have written about it.

Since I'm a Multipontialite, I figured it fits to have a single hub. If it works for Seth Godin, it works for me!

Thanks for stopping by, Darrell
