Dreams. Hopes. Goals.





Somewhat disjointed: Notes from various teachings this week... I felt it was important to write it down somewhere.


DREAM


Charles Capps wrote that Hope is the Goal Setter of your Faith just as the thermostat is the goal setter for the air conditioning unit. Love is the power and connection as wiring and electricity are to the process.


A man walks into the room and feels that it is HOT. He checks the temperature gauge and finds it is 90*. He begins to set the thermostat to 70*. A religious person comes along and says, you can't set that to 70*, you are lying to the machine, it's not 70*.


Sounds silly, but people do it all the time. You can't say you are healed when you are sick, you are lying. You can't say you are prosperous when you are broke and in debt, you are lying. No, I'm not lying. I'm setting the thermostat in order to change my environment.


Jim Carry once wrote a check to himself dated five years in advance for $10,000,000 for acting services rendered. He carried that check everywhere he went. At the time he was a broke Canadian comic, a total unknown. By the date on the check he'd released three major motion pictures and was drawing over $20,000,000 per picture. What did he do? He set the thermostat.


The thermostat is known as Hope in the bible. We also call it Dreams. Goals. Vision. Imaginations. Desires. These are all words to describe the thermostat of our lives.


Faith is the substance of our hope as the Air Unit is the substance of our cooler air. Without the unit the are would not cool. Without the Thermostat the unit would not have any goal set to accomplish and would sit, totally prepared to do the job and never produce anything.


Love is the POWER. Without electricity the Air Unit and the Thermostat would both be inoperative. You need power to connect the two and cause production. Love is the power that connects you Hope(Goal Setter) and your Faith (Producer of Substance Hoped for.)


It is not loving yourself, others, enemies, or even God that is most important here. It is tapping into, believing, and being TOTALLY convinced of, HIS LOVE for YOU! When you are totally enraptured with His Love for you, than you will be unable to doubt him ever again. Without doubt you are able to receive by faith the things you hope for.


Pastor Terri Savelle Foy talked about dreams. Without dreams you have no goal set for the fertile ground of your heart to produce. Putting dreams into writing sets the GPS of your heart.


Faith and Love protect your heart as a breastplate of armor, Hope protects your mind as a helmet.


Hope requires you to be consistent and hold on. You cannot waiver. If you doubt/waiver, you do not receive.


Disney saw his vision come to pass, the dream was so big on the inside that even though he had died long before the corporation is still expanding today. It still hasn't breached the boundaries of Disney's heart.


You cannot let finances drag you down. I do not serve money. I serve God! Money serves me!


If I let pressure of finances get to me, I'll stop dreaming or put hopes on the shelf. I must press harder into the dreams during times of pressure. I speak to circumstances and tell them how to react and what to do.


Hebrews 11:1
By Faith We Understand ] Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.


Hebrews 10:23
Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised isfaithful.


Habakkuk 2:2

New King James Version (NKJV)


The Just Live by Faith

   2 Then the LORD answered me and said:

      “ Write the vision

      And make it plain on tablets,

      That he may run who reads it. 




1 Corinthians 13:13
And now abide faithhope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.


2 Corinthians 10:14-16

New King James Version (NKJV)

14 For we are not overextending ourselves (as though our authority did not extend to you), for it was to you that we came with the gospel of Christ; 15 not boasting of things beyond measure, that is, in other men’s labors, but having hope, that as your faith is increased, we shall be greatly enlarged by you in our sphere, 16 to preach the gospel in the regions beyond you, and not to boast in another man’s sphere of accomplishment.


Colossians 1:23
if indeed you continue in the faith, grounded and steadfast, and are not moved away from the hope of the gospel which you heard, which was preached to every creature under heaven, of which I, Paul, became a minister.


1 Thessalonians 1:3
remembering without ceasing your work of faith, labor of love, and patience of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the sight of our God and Father,


1 Thessalonians 5:8
But let us who are of the day be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet the hope of salvation.


James 1:5-8

New King James Version (NKJV)

5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

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…

FICO

$ 14  FICO
W hat is a FICO score? Many people want to know what a FICO score is. FICO stands for the Fair Isaac Corporation, founded in 1956 and in 2009 renamed: FICO. This is the one company that has more control over your interest rates and loan approvals than any other. They review your credit reports and create a score based on the information found there.
            The formula that determines that score is TOP SECRET. The banks don't even know it. We do know a few things about the score though.  The Credit Scores can vary from 300 to 850, recently information has come out that it may go into the 900's now. A “Good Score” is hard to determine because different lenders have different cut off marks. According to Wikipedia the average marker in the USA is about 640.[1]This score is about the breaking point between bad and good. Typically, though, banks are looking for scores in the 700’s
~DSR or DTI~             The better your score the better the interest rate and the higher th…

Expectations Are Premeditated Disappointments

As my psychologist dad says, and I paraphrase...

Expectations Are Premeditated Disappointments
and...

Plan Plans Not Outcomes
I have had in my mind and heart a "way it's supposed to go/be", all my life.

So far almost exactly NOTHING has every gone the way it was supposed to go, or been the way it was supposed to be.

As it turns out, I'm a lousy planner of outcomes.

I'm an idealist, who can tell you what the right principles are, but specific outcomes are only within God's hands, not man's.

Maybe I do need to die after all... die to self.

Maybe I need to die to...

"I want""I need""I desire"... and just, simply, follow His lead.

But if I do that, if I follow His lead, that will lead me down paths I don't want to go, into situations I don't want to be in... that will take me to a prison after being beaten (Paul & Silas), it will get me thrown into a Lion's den (Daniel)... Sure, they overcame those situations, but not withou…
