The power of pairing self-control and discernment (Podcast)

When certain individuals, groups of people, or teams get together under the right conditions for the right reasons, they can create some amazing and powerful synergy. Synergy is that something extra created or produced which is greater than what each individual alone can do or generate. The same is true of words. When we pair certain words together and practice walking in that pairing toward an intentional and directed purpose, major breakthroughs occur. A much-needed example for such a time as this is combining self-control and discernment. Want to learn more? Join me in Breakthrough Land so you can grab hold of and experience what you need to work for your best life now!

We go create some synergy!

With warmest regards,

A tale of two perspectives, including a take on the cancel culture (Podcast)

Perspective produces prospects, both fruitful and fruitless, depending on your viewpoint. According to Webster’s Dictionary, perspective is “a mental view or prospect.” What mental view are you looking through? If your view is positive, proper, and clear, then you will find abounding prospects you would never have otherwise seen to glean! However, if your perspective is dim, cloudy, or skewed, then you’re walking by hidden opportunities waiting to be discovered.

Speaking of perspective: one of the worst productive-perspective-robbers is the cancel culture, which I address in today’s close. This being said, join me in Breakthroughland as we travel to the portion where perspectives are waiting to provide you with prolific prospects ripe for the picking!

Now go get yours!

Direct your diligence (Podcast)

Webster defines diligence as “steady, earnest, and energetic effort: devoted and painstaking work and application to accomplish an undertaking.” Diligence is not easy, and many times it is painstaking. Diligence is a noun; therefore, it needs action to be activated. How do you activate this? By directing your diligence with intentionality into those areas where you have been feeling restricted and experiencing resistance. Diligence is a force, a substance, a weapon to be used to break through in those areas of your life that have been holding you back. Want to learn more? Then press through to join me in Breakthroughland so you can make diligence work for you. Come on, let’s go!

Now, go direct that diligence!

Be kind to one another (Podcast)

There is no short supply of kindness, so why is there a decrease of it in circulation? People need to experience unexpected acts of kindness now more than ever. Sadly, many are not visiting the storehouse of kindness to reach in and send out their supply. Kindness benefits the giver as well as the receiver. This all sounds like common sense, so why is there still an unleveraged act?

Come find out, and then grab your supply from the Breakthrough Land Storehouse! The OWB will be closed for the season, and will resume hours after January 20th. In the meantime, start sowing kindness. Wishing you a wonderful Holiday Season and a spectacular New Year. Be safe, be well, and be kind to one another.

With warmest regards,

The Hating of a President

The Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. profoundly penned: “Let no man pull you low enough to hate him.”  This is a grave warning of sorts. Hate does terrible things to people, and causes people to do terrible things. It attacks, degrades, compromises, and ultimately destroys communities, neighborhoods, societies, and civilizations.  Hate causes people to be less than who they were created to be and what they are called to do. Hate devalues all of us. 

I am grieved to my core at the collective low where this nation has been pulled. Let me be crystal clear: my purpose in writing this reflection is not to take a position for or against this or any other president; but rather to urge each of us to do our part to help raise us to higher, healthier, and more fertile ground. Individually, we can do our part to dispel this toxicity by refusing to engage in hate, which includes hateful words, actions, deeds, or mindsets.  Let us employ reason, civility, grace, and mercy, for the greater good. Liking or not liking a person is not and should not be a pre-requisite to treating them kindly and speaking well of them.

So why not just write an article on hate and leave the president out of it? A good question deserving of an answer. Because hate is bombarding the highest representation of what embodies us as a nation. When the head is attacked, the body is affected, impaired, altered, and in danger of losing its way.  This should not be. I say this regardless of whether the head of this nation is a republican, democrat, independent, or otherwise.  And we are the body of this nation. Mark 3:25 warns “And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand.”

Webster defines hate as “extreme dislike or disgust,” and the online entomology dictionary adds: “abominable, deserving of curses, regard with extreme ill-will, have a passionate aversion to.” Some synonyms for hate include abhorrence, abomination, detestation, execration, hatred, loathing.”

The insidious thing about hate is that it destroys the very person who employs it, operates in it, and launches it.  Hate has a boomerang effect, much like deception. The one who operates in deceiving others will eventually fall victim to the very tactic they employed. And just like deception, hate becomes the employer of those who desire to employ it. Hate and deception work hand-in-hand. When you open the door to one, you eventually get the other. They feed off each other, eventually destroying their host, and then moving on to the next.

Consider the following fable (unattributed): Once upon a time there were two men who hated each other.  They did all they could to manifest their utter detestation.  When one failed or was hurt, the other celebrated.  One night, an angel appeared to one of the men and said, ‘I will give you anything you ask, but whatever you receive, the one you hate will receive twice as much. Do you long to be rich? You can be very rich, but the other will be twice as wealthy. Do you want a long and healthy life? You can, but the other will be longer and healthier. What is your desire?”  The man thought for a moment, then responded, “Blind me in one eye!”

This is what hate does to an individual. This is what hate does to the body. When one invites this deceiver in, hate makes itself right at home, and then propagates itself over and over and over again until a society or a nation is destroyed; unless it is countered with civility. Civility is the compass that tethers us to righteousness and objectivity, and keeps us out of the weeds. Civility takes us to and keeps us on that higher ground. Civility prevents us from hating the other so much, that we would rather hurt ourselves than see the one we hate get a blessing.

If anyone had a reason to hate, it was Dr. King. But he knew the blinding effects that hate leaves in its path—the carnage it creates. And he knew that was not a legacy worth seeing.

Give people the grace to grow (Podcast)

Webster’s Dictionary defines grace as a “disposition to or an act or instance of kindness, courtesy, or clemency; a temporary exemption.” There is too much spewing of vinegar (bitterness, wrong intentions, cruelty, wrong-doing, public shaming),and not enough releasing of honey (grace, good will, covering shame). Whereas withholding grace stunts and sidetracks our individual and collective growth, operating in and giving ourselves and each other grace causes us all to grow. We, as human beings, are messy. So it’s time we look past the mess in each other, and illuminate the treasure with the galore of grace. I know where there is a great gusher of grace; so come on, Let’s go! We are heading to Breakthrough Land!
