Instructions given by somebody who controls something or somebody; Management; Control and supervision; a feeling of having a definite goal or purpose; Prescription; either verbal or written; instruction in what manner to proceed.

If we are facing in the right direction, all we have to do is keep on walking.

Why is it so easy to “Give Direction” yet so hard to “Receive Direction?”

When we “Give” Direction, our motive is pure, we only want to help, we don’t assume to be superior, we just might have traveled that road; that experience.

But when “Someone” wants to “Direct” us we assume all these truths to be reversed.

What’s their Motive, are they trying to ruin me? They just think they are better than me!

Dude! We are so suspicious.

President Woodrow Wilson once said, “I not only use all the brains I have, but all I can borrow.”

Listen, we even struggle with taking “Direction” from God. Unless of course He happens to agree with us.

In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. ~Proverbs 3:6

Socrates said, “Whatever authority I have rests solely on Knowing how little I Know.” It would seem to me that such Not-Knowing –Humility in the face of the mysteries of life

could open the door of our hearts to the Divine Director.

God’s earth abiding presence….”The Holy Spirit.”

This Heaven sent “Director” of surrendered lives, has our best interest at heart.

He knows when to say “Action” “Cut” “Print” ….. Go Stay wait

He has direct access to the plans and purposes God the Father intended for you and your life. He has the script…Not just today’s lines; He knows how this movie ends!

He can warn us of Impending danger. Recognition of His Voice could stop countless deaths, tragedies and difficulties.

Many broken homes and marriages could be transformed by hearing and abiding His Direction.

His voice can unlock waves of favor and blessing, He can connect you with uncommon people. Recognition of His Direction brings Inner Peace.

Confusion Is The Proof Of Rejected Truth.

Stop discussing your problems with someone incapable of solving it.

Start asking the Holy Spirit to Lead You. To Show You!

Imagine an all-wise, all knowing guide living inside you, waiting to answer all your questions….

He will Talk to you If You Listen to Him.

Joy Is The Divine Reward For Discerning The Divine Purpose Of The Immediate Moment.

Hey! Deb & I are praying for you to receive direction. So pray for us!

See You In Church

Capable of being taught; apt to learn; Willing to receive instruction or to learn;

"What really counts in life is what you learn after you know it all." ~John Wooden

The older we get, the more set in our ways we are likely to be. The older we get, the harder it is to master new skills and adapt to new methods. The older we get, the more likely we are to tune out ideas that would require re-thinking a point of view.

A key to success in every profession or business is teachability.

In one's personal spiritual life, pride is among the deadliest of sins for the simple reason that it prohibits learning.

We must remember that Jesus rebuked folks who wouldn't think or grow.

And said, Truly I say to you, unless you repent (change, turn about) and become like little children [trusting, lowly, loving, forgiving], you can never enter the kingdom of heaven [at all]. ~Matthew 18:3

According to the Bible, a fool is not someone who is mentally deficient. It has nothing to do with intellect, test scores, or degrees of education. The Bible defines a fool as a person with a propensity to ignore correction and continue in his own way. Jesus clearly teaches that to rebel against His word, continually making the wrong decisions, is to be a fool.

More good ideas have been killed with "We've never done it that way before" than with good reasons as to why it shouldn't be done some new way.

Prejudice against all things new is self-defeating and unworthy of people in God's image. There are no uninteresting ideas, only disinterested people.

Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. ~Isaiah 43:19

The whole art of teaching is only the art of awakening the natural curiosity of the mind for the purpose of satisfying it afterwards. As we learn and Grow, we are Blessed.

Teachers open the door. But You must enter by yourself.

Unfortunately Even Experience teaches only the teachable.

It is better to learn late than never. ~Syrus

As long as you're green, you're growing. As soon as you're ripe, you start to rot. ~Ray Kroc

He who stops being better stops being good. ~Oliver Cromwell

Teachable to the End..........

President Theodore Roosevelt is remembered as an outspoken man of action and proponent of the vigorous life. While in the White House, he was known for regular boxing and judo sessions, vigorous horseback rides, and long, strenuous hikes.

At different times in his life, TR (Roosevelt's nickname) was a cowboy in the Wild West, an explorer and big-game hunter, and a rough-riding cavalry officer in the Spanish-American War. His enthusiasm and stamina seemed boundless. As the vice-presidential candidate in 1900, he gave 673 speeches and traveled 20,000 miles while campaigning for President McKinley. And years after his presidency, while preparing to deliver a speech in Milwaukee, Roosevelt was shot in the chest by a would-be assassin. With a broken rib and a bullet in his chest, Roosevelt insisted on delivering his one-hour speech before allowing himself to be taken to the hospital.

Roosevelt's list of accomplishments is remarkable. Under his leadership, the United States emerged as a world power. He helped the country develop a first-rate navy. He built the Panama Canal. He negotiated peace between Russia and Japan, winning a Nobel Peace Prize in the process. And when people questioned TR's leadership-he had become president when McKinley was assassinated-he campaigned and was reelected by the largest majority of any president up to his time.

Ever the man of action, when Roosevelt completed his term as president in 1909, he immediately traveled to Africa where he led a scientific expedition sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution. And in 1913 he co-led a group to explore the uncharted River of Doubt in Brazil. It was a great learning adventure he said he could not pass up. "It was my last chance to be a boy,” he later admitted. He was fifty-five years old.

On January 6, 1919, at his home in New York, Theodore Roosevelt died in his sleep. At the time, Vice President Thomas Riley Marshall said, "Death had to take him sleeping, for if Roosevelt had been awake, there would have been a fight." When they removed him from his bed, they found a book under his pillow. Up to the very last, TR was still striving to learn and improve himself.

We are Not who we want to be. But we are Not who we used to be!

Feed – Back “Comment” Question!

Can a person actively change their nature, or are we all stuck the way we are? And if a person does change is it just because his or her environment changed, causing him or her to react in a different way because their nature makes them? I know my opinion. What's yours?
