Growing Restless


Restless of being Weary



Jacob and Esau are the fraternal twin sons of Isaac. Esau is a whole 30 seconds older than Jacob, being exposed to air first. Jacob comes holding onto his heal.

  • Esau is born reddish and hairy. Esau ends up becoming a hunter and warrior personality (Modern Translation: Jock and/or Soldier personality). 
  • Jacob ends up being "a peaceful man living in tents" (Modern Translation: Geek and/or Artist personality) and also becomes quite a good chef.

Isaac is Abraham's son of promise. Through prophecy, and a whole lot of ignorance and deception, Jacob ends up with the blessing that belonged to his older brother by birth right. After he gets the Blessing, he walks into the annals of history to change his name to Israel. He then fathers a nation of the same name, The Israelites.

Esau, saddened at his loss, comes to his father. Can I get a blessing too Dad? Just a little one?

Genesis 27:40 KJV

And by thy sword shalt thou live , and shalt serve thy brother; and it shall come to pass when thou shalt have the dominion , that thou shalt break his yoke from off thy neck.
New International Version 

"You will live by the sword and you will serve your brother. But when you grow restless, you will throw his yoke from off your neck."
NASB 
"By your sword you shall live, And your brother you shall serve ; But it shall come about when you become restless, That you will break his yoke from your neck."

So what lessons can we learn from Esau?


Have you ever been the blessed one, but you forfeited your rights because of short sighted wants and desires? You ended up becoming a servant of sin, sickness, demons, fear, addiction, etc? Maybe it wasn't that bad, maybe you just forfeited the best, for good enough.

When you get restless, you can throw off those chains. Through Jesus, all people can be blessed now, not just the few and the chosen.

But it's not going to just fall on you. Jesus paid the price, but he's already done everything. It's now up to you. When you grow restless, tired of not having enough, tired of not being enough, tired of living in defeat... than you can throw off the chains of servitude and find freedom.

It will not be easy, or comfortable. Imagine, for a moment. That you are bound in chains, and yoked to pull a a wagon behind you. Like a human mule. Imagine the force it would take to not just remove... but BREAK the chains and yoke off of you like an explosion.

Dave Ramsey calls this Gazelle Intensity.

Restless is a Verb, and action. It's not a feeling, it's a demonstrated motion of activity. You aren't restless when you feel tired or irritated. You are restless when you become motivated, and that motivation is apparent in your actions.

No one around you will doubt or wonder if you have become restless. It will be like an explosion of new and different activity. You have to live like no-one else, so that you can live like no-one else.

When you are restless... we'll all know. Until then, we'll just watch to see when it hits.

Your Turn:


Is there anything that has been holding you back for so long, it's about time you grew restless about it?

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…

emClient Desktop Email and Calendar Tool Review

Desktop Email and Calendar Tool Review. I don't want to spend a ton of time on this, but I think it's worth giving my hand to this OVER BLOGGED topic because MOST of the other blogs were helpful to a point, but they were the SAME blog post, almost verbatim, on different websites. Here is my journey. The other day I get fed up trying to boot Outlook and it took awhile to boot up, because my personal computer only has very little RAM and I haven't bothered installing more, and I'm just over it.

I also wanted an email/calendar app for the android phone, which I may have to write about too because I figured that out for now. In case you interested the short of that is that I am using the basic Gmail app for email and Outlook app for that email, and using aCalendar which actually just overlays on top of Google Calendar. So you are really using Google Calendar but aCalendar is a MUCH prettier interface! I was trying to use Outlook calendar but on the Android but they seem det…

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe: Here's what happened...

Flavia Antoinette Wolfe died this morning (06/25/2018) at approximately 2:45 am PST. For update see

The following is meant to answer some basic questions that everyone's asking me. I'd rather send a link then type or talk it out over and over. I'll add more memories and things later as I recall or rediscover. It's a little cathartic for me, to be able to get it out of my head anyway.

The background leading up to this morning:


On May 24, 2018, I got a text with a picture of a positive pregnancy test followed by "So... Boy, girl, twins?"We made appointments, got excited. Flavia was overweight but in generally good health otherwise, so-say-the-tests. However, the pregnancy hit her hard and fast. She said within a month of that test she was feeling like she did when she was six-months pregnant.06/06/2018: She took the boys to get Fro-Yo, it was nice outside, they decided to walk a…

No Hiding... My Story

Why am I writing my story? So... here's the thing. The Pure Desire, Seven Pillars workbook asks me to write an addiction story. When I was __ this happened. Then this happened. Timeline style.

The workbook and videos also break down the limbic system, and how desires, fears, and auto-responses were mostly created early, before 6 years old, give or take.

I've been thinking about my history and timeline for years, wondering why I am the way I am. So this sounds like promising homework. I started in on paper, but the deep level I want to travel will take more space. I plan to outline every relevant (or possibly relevant) moment.

Also, I'm inspired to start again because of a KPBS special "Meet the Patels", in which Ravi Patel (as shown through the lens of his sister's (Geeta Patel's - Film Maker) camera. It's a long story, worth seeing. It showed the struggles of American dating vs the arranged or partially-arranged type marriage systems their culture us…
