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…

Introduction In the beginning, the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God. (Immerse, 2017) John, page 399 
Notice that John begins his gospel by calling Jesus, The Word. We find Words, and the stories they create for us, impact us at a level that is beyond our cognitive ability to understand in the moment. Being caught up in a story can make you lose all sense of present, and be transported to another time and place (and sometimes another world entirely).

Ever since Aristotle observed that stories had a beginning, a middle, and an end, the science of story has been developed and studied. Our modern sensibilities tell us at a gut level whether a story “works” or i…

Reflection Paper: Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis

Reflections of Mere Christianity
This is a reflection paper of the text Mere Christianity (Lewis, 1952, 1980). The content was first delivered as radio broadcast material between 1942-1944 by Clive Staples “CS” Lewis. Lewis then gathered the materials and published them as three sperate works, later combining and editing the text that became Mere Christianity. With the mind of a scholar and the mouth of a layman, Lewis takes us through the various topics that affect our lives as Christians and provides practical break-downs of how we are to treat each topic, supplemented by a host of modern parallels and parables. He is careful not to take any position that is not laid solidly in the Word of God, leaving those positions that are controversial within the Church either without an opinion or a well-deserved analysis of each side. However, far from a dry treatment of theology, Lewis gives us a laugh through each turn as he cuts through the heady stuff for the “why behind” each discussion…
