If You Were My Daughter, Part 3
#1) Who Are You Willing To Learn From?
We can’t learn from someone we resent….
Who do I admire?
Who inspires me?
Who knows and values your authenticity–your difference?
Don’t waste your energy searching when someone close to you knows the answer.
Don’t be stupid.
There’s no one weaker than a non-reacher.
The more conversations you have, the more you’ll learn.
Inventory your present property.
What are 5 other options that’ll cost you nothing at all.
The purpose of waiting is to gather information.
Mentorship is learning from someone else’s pain.
Mentorship is learning without the wait.
When you ask enough questions you attract the right answers.
Pain is the proof of the wrong questions.
Pain is the proof of disorder.
Who are 10 people who can learn from?
What questions should I be asking them?
What qualities in your father do you admire?
What qualities do you wish your husband would have?
A man’s goals reveal what he values.
Where has your father failed?
Where has he succeeded?
What are you learning from your mother?
What is her advice that I’ve ignored?
In the Book of Proverbs, it deals a lot with listening.
The last words Jesus spoke, “Hear what the Spirit is saying…”
Listen to where your parents had failures.
What do they wish they’d done differently?
What do they wish they’d done differently with money?
There’s no persuasion like experience.
A day without regret is a day you’ve made no discoveries.
Every day you should feel stupid about something, because that is where you learned.
The greater your discovery, the deeper your pain.
Who are you not learning from that you should be learning from?
Don’t try to learn everything from one person.
The electric company doesn’t furnish me water.
The water company doesn’t furnish me a car.
Ask someone / your parents to tell you what mistakes do you think I’m making?
What topic do you want to master?
#2) Do You Really Believe in the Word of God?
Have you really settled the Bible in your heart?
Do you really believe Jesus is the Son of God?
Until you’re persuaded about the power,
and the presence of God, to make your life right–
everything that you’re battling can destroy you.
You must settle that–you’ve got to settle that.
Embrace the God of your parents until something greater affects you.
#3) The Ability To Say No
Men will desire you for different reasons, and when it’s all said and done:
If somebody is pursuing you, they want something.
They want a reaction, a result, a good thought, your wisdom, your favor.
Reaching is the seed for relationship, knowledge, change.
Why is this person calling me?
Even God, He wants something.
He wants me to choose His path , He wants to be chosen.
When a man pursues you, he wants something.
He may want admiration.
He may want confirmation of what he’s thinking.
Don’t let anybody kid you–you can’t “have it all”.
If God Himself cannot “have it all”, do you think you can?
No. Don’t be fooled into thinking you can “have it all”.
So you choose what brings you joy, pleasure.
Choose some small pleasures.
If you can’t buy a new house, go buy an ice cream cone.
And then make them routine–every day.
Make small pleasures your life, every day.
If you can’t get the new car, go spend $10 on a book.
[repeat this prayer]
Holy Spirit, I am a searcher for uncommon wisdom. Holy Spirit, I am Your protege. Reveal mentorship opportunities to me. I will not reject wisdom. I embrace wisdom.
Father, give me understanding of unspoken agendas. When people are pursuing me, help me to discern what they want from me. Heal my mind. Heal my memories. And do business through me on the earth.
In the matchless name of Jesus.
