S Change Share about separation In a spiritual war for the last 6 months Denial, negotiating attempts with God and others, counseling Come to a few conclusions It doesn’t matter what portion of this situation is from my actions vs someone else, in fact it’s futile and you could say to devote any energy to something you cannot control other than turning it over to Yah in prayer is foolish Where my primary focus should be is to change what I can change, ie what I actually have the ability to change, and that is pretty much limited to my own personal thoughts, words and actions But if I stopped there I would be only in the realm of the world, of Babylon, the world of self-help, self-improvement or taken to the extreme the goal of self-actualization, which is right in the devil’s playground. An earlier low point in my life, I responded that way-self-help the worlds's way-13 traits from Benjamin Franklin-put up post-it notes and repeat each trait for a week. Exhausting Looking back to that season in my life, the true lasting positive changes I made was limited to the following: 1. I married a woman who was much farther along in her faith journey and in her commitment to her faith than me 2. I got plugged into a vibrant church and men's ministry as well as an evangelical mindset with a lot of discipleship opportunities and started a journey of sanctification which resulted in a number of positive changes: the removal of the majority of really stupid, really obviously bad outward sins of the flesh. Also I started thinking about what I could do to share with others what little I had learned in my journey. Some results of that included me writing a book about faith at work as well as starting this podcast. What I’m partially realizing now that I did not change was what Yeshua said was the most important thing to change and that was my heart, and that I may have short-circuited my heart change by launching into sharing with and helping others, not to mention my motivation for writing the book and doing the podcast had a large element of pride which only hindered the heart change I needed. Back to the point of surrendering, if I do what I did nearly 20 years ago and just try to do a Christian version of self-help, I will still be self focused and my efforts will be in vain and will fail. This is true regardless how great those efforts of mine are (and trust me I can put out some great effort when I put my mind toward a goal). The only true path to change is to surrender to the most High and let His Holy Spirit change me from the inside out. Now don’t get me wrong I believe it’s important to identify what needs to change and to be purposeful toward that specific area of change, and to be mindful and aware of when we are not living our lives in line with that desired change. But the way to change is not through us but through Yah. To be specific and personal with you, My 3 areas of change I need most are to be: 1. Be positive not negative 2. Be encouraging not critical 3. Be content not discontent What does this mean with regard to this podcast I'm not sure. I know I really enjoy doing these episodes and I'm praying they are some benefit to those of you listening to these. I believe I can continue to do these while still focusing on the personal growth that is most important. I plan to be more selective in the interviews I do, focusing on issues that I think are most critical to me and to other men, issues that men don't talk about much but are very important. That will likely mean I deal with topics that aren't necessarily just about faith and work, but we'll see. I also continue to feel led to talk about things I've learned on Messianic/Hebrew roots side of things but haven't decided if I will incorporate that into this podcast or do a separate podcast. That's it for now on what's on my heart. E Coworker said in the Maint shop he was over 3 important machines, someone joked that he keeps those Machines going so he can bring home a paycheck and he responded that actually by running those 3 machines he was allowing us all to bring home a paycheck Reminder of Value of our work, not just as a good witness to others by doing good and living a life that is respected by others But by doing good work in a very practical way we are blessing others. By being effective our organization we are a part of are better able to succeed in their goals which results in everyone in the organization prospering. This time of here my employer gives out bonuses based on individual performance as well as performance as larger organization. This year much lower than in past and than expected primarily due to factors outside of the organization, issues with the economy including inflation. This was a reminder to me that there are some things in our lives and our work lives that are outside of our control, but just as bonuses are calculated by both individual and corporate performance, there are some things that are in our control. Past retreat talked about “focus on your zone” meaning your area of influence. L Appreciate different laughs. I’ve noticed how different are the sounds of people’s Laughs, more so maybe even than the sound of their voice when speaking. Just another aspect of diversity and how God us all unique and special in so many ways. This also reminds me that in the past I have made judgements about people’s Laughs. Some I like to hear and some are annoying to me. I’m not OK work that about me. I should not be annoyed by someone’s laugh any more than I should dislike looking at the color of their skin. I’m quite sure that God is pleased with the sound of each one of our laughs and so should I. My final thought on this that we won’t know how unique each of our laughs are unless we actually laugh, so I encourage you not to just appreciate the uniqueness of the laughs of your coworkers, be someone who laughs and also someone who through their actions and words encourages and leads others in your workplace to laugh as well. A But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. 1 Peter 5:10 - NKJV H Week 11 Day 4
