Personal Power. The activity for today asks that I reference all the tools and products that have promised to offer me 'personal power'. it then references Ammon following his being called out for being 'boastful' as he states in response "I will not boast in myself, I will boast in God for in his strength I can do all things."

This is an area of confusion at times for me. If I am not vigiliant about praying for someones agenda to be revealed I can become star struck and in awe by some of the leadership I am around. I have not protected my heart in these type of relationships. I have at times trusted wolves in sheeps clothing. I have one mentor in particular I have recently began distancing myself from, I know by his words and his work he has some faulty philosophy. The fear that this brings is enormous. I know that he can and has attempted to hurt the relationship with myself and our organization members. He has been successful but there are some things he does that really prevents me from following him any longer.

This is all very vague, but the business I work with is a personal development business with a marketing plan intertwined. Relationships are some of the only tangible dynamics to go by. We are taught to protect our organizations and the crazyiest thing is that to protect them from those would lead them is a difficult thing.

There is a system in place that involves a higher principle then the faulty philosophies of my former mentor. It is a law of the harvest. It works and is righteous and I am daily putting my faith in these same principles of business that I can put my belief in, and know that I can stand with confidence that it is the Lords principles. In HIS strength are all things possible.

"In a decaying environment, the mind is the last redoubt of righteousness, and it must be preserved even amid bombardment by evil stimuli. Christ is competent to see us through, “for in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted” As promised, He will make either “a way to escape” or a way “to bear it”."

— Neal A. Maxwell
