You're Not Broke You Have A Seed!

Highlights from the Book: You're Not Broke You Have A Seed!



I had this book on my shelf, read it in 2007 without much thought about it. Made a few notes, highlighted some things. Lately I have really struggled with taking my life vision and ministry work to a new level... I'm just not satisfied working at a "J.O.B." anymore. I got too lazy and willing to let that be enough. I tried several jobs. But now God is showing me that although he may continue to use the J.O.B. for now, it's not the end all and I need to remember that. I guess I let that slip somewhere along the way. Ultimately God wants to use the job as a place to obtain seed, not the place to meet your need. GOD is your provider, not your job. When the job becomes your provider you are tempted to do or say things that are not totally in line with God's Word to "perform". Pressure mounts to say something a certain way to get a sale, when that isn't the full and honest truth. Something simple, like having a good idea and personalizing it with a story that didn't actually happen, just to get the point across. That may be common in the sales world, but it is a LIE! You must be cautious not to jump from example of what could be to saying it had been.

So here are some things that stood out to me from the book. Some are notes I made for myself and some are direct quotes from the book.
"Therefore, God protects His children from money until we understand that we are not to be the servant of money; rather, money is to be our servant... We have to let the Holy Ghost escort us into the wealth of God."
"I'm not broke; I have a seed!"
"To some people seed-time is a sad time when it should be a shouting time. You can sow your way out, but God is not going to let you work your way out by jobs. If you work your way out, you will not have the grace you need to maintain your walk with God." 
 "God is ministering to you so do not take it lightly. The Holy Spirit is producing some things in your life, and when He is finished, even your own family will not know you." Notated and confirmed 02/10/2012 and 07/16/2007"
 "The Lord told Isaac, 'I am going to do this for you, and you don't have to leave this land to prosper.' Nor do we have to leave our physical location; the only thing we have to do is learn how to operate properly in the Spirit... You have to move in revelation, not in position, and the rest will take care of itself."
"A famine is when you may have a good job, but you're barely keeping up with your bills."
"Who is a sower? A sower is one who is operating under stewardship. What I have is not really mind. I am in management for Someone Else, and whatever He tells me to do with whatever I have I am willing to do it."
 "When I say 'eating your seed' I am talking about buying something to appease the prosperity that is in you. However, you have to sow your way to the prosperity that belongs to you."
"The job is not God's way. The job is not to make a living, it is to get seed so you can sow for a living. Some say, 'If I can only get a good job. The job I have now is not a good job. The pay isn't enough'"
 "When you got on God's system properly, you don't need a budget. A budget is merely to stop you from overspending, but when you get into the system (God's System) you can't overspend. Now until you get out of the system (The Worlds System), you will have to budget yourself... You can plant a financial seed but if you let words come out the wrong way, you will uproot the seed wit the words of your mouth."
Words are your primary seed. Money just activates your words. So does anythings you sow (Time, Talent, and Treasures are all seed). Remember, Money is not Good or Bad, it only amplifies and expresses the heart.

"Expectation that cannot be killed is expectation that cannot be denied. You have to have expectation!... Once you have planted the seed, go to sleep. "Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on the Thee" Isaiah 26:3) "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding" (Proverbs 3:5) Build up your expectation and go to sleep. In other words, plant your seed, then go about your Father's business, praising the Lord (For you are calling it down NOW not when you see it)


Referring to Luke 5:6

The ship did not run over and the net did not break until they obeyed...

Kenneth Copeland has also said that: "the only reason the net broke is because Peter threw out one net, the old worn out one, because he'd just cleaned all his good nets. He was just trying to humor the preacher, he wasn't expecting anything to happen."

It's comforting to know that God isn't trying to keep His blessing from us, but he's trying to get us to do the least bit to move toward Him so that he can legally get it to us! Peter's latter catch when Jesus told him to put out nets after His Resurrection was a REAL harvest!

Isaiah 55:10-11 rain gives seed which gives more seed and bread! The Word gives seed and bread!

My check is not my source. You have to come to that conclusion, if not, when famine comes, you will be just like other people... So, as you are reading this, God is aiming to make you switch masters.
The key to operating God's Law and to avoid frustration and the temptation to quit is to understand that with God there is an appointed time and due season for everything. 
Whatever you have now, whatever He says to you to do with it, do it, and you will jump systems. 


1 Thessalonians 5:16 Rejoice always

The key to standing tall between "I believe" and "There it is" is Rejoice always! Rejoice means to brighten up, spin around, and leap! Don't be looking at bills all day long. Look at the Bible, look at what God has Promised! 
Keys to receiving your Due Season:

  1. Honor the Lord
  2. Speak to your seed
  3. Speak to your mountain (Debt, Lack, Etc)
  4. Be Aggressive
Remember this:

We Must disconnect the DO from the GET. 

Your Job is NOT your source. 

As long as your job is your source, God can't be. He won't take second place. Make up in your mind right now, that your JOB is a place God has brought you to get seed and bread as you switch systems. In God's system you are always called to "DO" things, because we find our greatest enjoyment in providing for others. Your DOING is for the benefit of others. 

However your DOING is NOT tied to your RECEIVING. Just because God calls you to be an author, doesn't mean you will make an income from your books/blog/etc. God may ask you to SOW all of that and bring income to you a million other ways. 

You DO because it's your call to DO, don't concern yourself with how you will monetize it. Just do what you do, and allow God to bless you with income beyond your ability to produce. As far as God is concerned He could have you wake up to Gold nuggets on your kitchen floor every morning, like manna in the wilderness. 

He could bring you money and income from many places you've never thought of. He isn't concerned about YOU MAKING ENOUGH. Just DO what He says DO, God will be the one who brings you the income and resources. 


That is the end of my notes on the book! I suggest you buy a copy yourself and keep it in your library. It was a good faith stretcher.

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…

Topos Transitions

Transitions are rough. I've been through many seasons of my life where I had to make a transition. At each and every stage it was tough. There are always things you miss about the last season, things you are hoping for in the next season, and things you can't wait to be rid of in the season you're leaving behind.Whether you are sensing the winds of change blowing you out of your current situation, you are in the middle of the trip, or the winds are at your back and you settling in to your new spot... Remember this word: ToposTopos is a Greek word and it essentially means:Your strategic position of opportunity and influence.Make your Topos count today, wherever you are.Darrell




White Nose | Scene 3

The Aleve took effect with the help of two breakfast whiskey sours. It had been three days since his tussle in town and he still couldn't sleep, despite the nighttime cocktail.
Beams of light broke through the trees outlining Ash's house, tucked back off of the main road by a mile long rock driveway. One such beam was tanning his pale country face as he rocked on an old wooden chair he'd carved himself. Whittling was one of his most relaxing and profitable talents.
One look in the mirror each summer reminded him that he only retained two colors, pale Irish freckle and redneck red. Ash was careful to avoid too much contact with summer's star.
Dust down the drive revealed the presence of a visitor before the sound of tires on gravel confirmed it. Ash hasn't been visited by more than three people in the eight years he'd been back in town, so he picked up the hunting rifle, just in case.
The scope showed the local sheriff, his friend Dan. He didn't usually com…

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger????

What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger.Ask a Vet with an amputated limb if they feel stronger now or before the limb was taken... I'd bet before. Injury, all injury, is by definition a lack of perfection. What doesn't kill you, more often than not,  makes you weaker, more timid, more cautious, slower... Not stronger.Sure, we can learn from the past, become more resilient. We can use pressure, under certain circumstances, to build resistance based strengths, like a body builder pushing back on the resistance of the weights... But by no means is the saying: "What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger" an accurate portrayal of Truth, nor should it EVER be spoken to someone in pain.The enemy comes ONLY to steal, kill, and destroy, that's why the pain/attack came, not to make you stronger but to kill you.God's Grace brought you through but He didn't bring you to...God's Grace can heal you too.Selah#LiesAboutGod

Writers Block - How do you write when you don't know what to write?

So, I recently had a comment on this blog. I'm not sure if it's ligit but I think that it's a question a lot of writers ask:


"... I was curious to find out how you center yourself and cⅼear your tһoughts before writіng. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I truly dߋ take pleasurе in writing, however, it just seems like the fіrѕt 10 to 15 minutes is wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Appгеciate іt!" AnonymousJuly 1, 2017 at 4:31 PM


The way this is phrase means that this is either a spam comment or it's just a google translate comment. Not sure. Nevertheless, it's a good question.

Having a mind that is clear isn't necessary for writing. Writing requires thoughts. My professor once said: "Throw up on the page, we can clean it up afterward". And that's done wonders for me. If you are going to write, just start. You could end up with something so long and winding that you…

What is a Topos? A strategic position of opportunity and influence

What does Topos mean?Topos is a Greek word meaning: "Place, or Opportunity"
Properly:Any portion of space marked off, as it were, from surrounding, space Metaphorically: The condition or station held by one in any company or assemblyopportunity, power, occasion for actingA spot (general in space, but limited by occupancy; whereas chora is a large but participle locality). As used by me: Topos is a strategic position of opportunity and influence
Topos: Your Calling Everyone has a God given calling on this earth. There is something you were created and designed to do. What you are doing now may be "The Calling"; or, it may be the calling for this season of your life. Either way, you are either in your Topos, or you need to find it.

As you read the stories of biblical heros like Noah, Abraham, Joseph, Moses, David, Nehemiah, Peter, and Paul... etc... you find that God put them in the right place to do the right thing at the right time.

They ended up in their Topos, …

II Corinthians 11:23-27 NKJV
Are they ministers of Christ?—I speak as a fool—I am more: in labors more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequently, in deaths often. From the Jews five times I received forty stripes minus one. Three times I was beaten with rods; once I was stoned; three times I was shipwrecked; a night and a day I have been in the deep; in journeys often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils of my  own countrymen, in perils of the Gentiles, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; in weariness and toil, in sleeplessness often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness—

Freedom From vs Freedom ToBe

For many Freedom is understood through the lense if being free from...Addiction
Pain
Loneliness
Him/Her
The Situation
The Job
Debt
Poverty
Etc.So we follow the rat race seeking whatever we think will make us free. When that doesn't provide the freedom we sought, we seek another fix, and another... An endless cycle of seeking freedom but never being free.What if Freedom has nothing to do with whatever jail you are in, however you've defined your personal jail.What if Freedom is about becoming WHO you were always meant to be... And in that pursuit all the "other" (addiction, pain, the jails) falls off when you aren't even looking...You don't know when you got "free from", you just look back and realize you don't have all the issues you had. You have battles in front of you but you have definitely won some battles too, and you didn't​even notice you had won.It's as though the act of becoming a butterfly was so profound that you have trouble…

White Noise | Distortion | Scene Two | TBC

A few THC pills, more than necessary, stopped Ash's hands from shaking as he filled a short glass with ice and Jameson's. Topping it off with a sleeping pill, and the night was sure to embrace him soon.

The night air bit his nose as Ash stepped out onto the patio; he'd spent worse nights than this in the deserts. Ash zipped up the sub-zero sleeping bag and settled into the hammock. Night owls and bats were still out this time of year and they're combined symphony was the final step to his sleep concoction.

***

The mess hall wasn't as full this time of day. The food was dry by late afternoon but it was never very good anyway. Ash twirled spegettiini on his fork as two guys nearby chattered on about what they'd do when they get home.
Suddenly time slowed down. The roof caved in and a compression wave through him against the wall. He slid down the wall losing consciousness. 
When he came-to a few moments later there was total chaos. Other buildings were collapsing, m…

Become not do

From 7 Habits of Highly Effective People:As Emerson once put it, “What you are shouts so loudly in my ears I cannot hear what you say.”It's one thing to put on a smile at work on a bad day because the customer doesn't need to know about that. You got a job to do. We've all had to do that and it's ok.It's another thing to lie to those closer to you, or worse yourself. Who you are produces what you do. If those two are not aligned it creates cognitive dissonance, spiritual tremors, anxiety breakdowns.The solution isn't to stop doing good or well... though that's exactly what you'll be tempted to do to some the cognitive dissonance.The solution it's to become who you were created to be. As you become, your doing gets better as a byproduct.#ScratchTheNewLimb
