    But the spirit sees the freedom that being wise in this area releases...not a death, , often an enlarging.

    Dr. Luke's integrity is where I want to live not just visit. Appreciate your final sentence - great caution.
    Thanks//Molly

  • This Season is coming to an end

    Dear Arthur, This article is a sad confirmation to my soul, something that I knew it's happening for over 2 years but have no idea how to move on? A few days before Covid-19 lockdown, I literally ran into the leader of the ministry that my family has been heavily invested in while I was hurrying to the airport to fly home before boarder closing. In 15 seconds time, I said to him that "I mentioned last year that "The Season has changed", now I am sure that the Season indeed has changed and things will Not be the same again (I was implying our connections also)". Our love & support has not changed, but I know for a fact that, that part of my journey is no longer a focus in our lives. But how do you convey such message? And how to "slip out" nicely & quietly? Wait for Heavenly Time & Timing. As friends, it's still painful & sad. Thank you for this timely message.

    Replied by : Arthur Burk No real easy answers for you, but I would encourage you to keep it vague. "I just feel that this season has come to completion and I need to disengage from a few things to be ready for whatever God has in the next assignment. "If my hand is closed, holding on to the good from the last season, I cannot receive the treasure from the new season."

  • THANK YOU!!

    Hello Arthur, Right before your first Dropping Friends article came out, I was close to writing an email to you about this very topic. This third part is especially timely for me, and gives me clarity for this season. After hearing your RGT in 2004 and discovering that I'm a very strong Mercy, my life changed. As I gained much understanding, my healing journey with God went deep. He helped me to grow and mature, this helped me to gain confidence and allow the other RG's to emerge in myself. My point today is that as you started writing your theory, I could insert my name and the name of the ministry/relationship that I've been earnestly praying about for months. It's funny, I went through this a year ago with another alignment and I had clarity on that one. This one is more difficult to be clear on because of the emotional entanglements. But, after reading this today, "I got it." Thank you for your wisdom and insights.

    Replied by : Arthur Burk It is OK to be quite emotionally connected with some person or organization we have invested deeply in, and still say, "This season is over."

    How are u humans supposed. To know with confidence which assignments are from God and which from our own Egos or from the enemy for that matter. We live in the dark. And God does not speak clearly enough to most of us to confidently make assignments.

    Replied by : Arthur Burk Well, Jesus said, "My sheep here my voice" so that presupposes an innate ability to learn to hear. Admittedly, there is only a small percentage of the times when I will loudly announce, "I know that I know that I heard right." Most of the time there is that shadow of concern when I move forward on discernment instead of principles. But there are times we do have to make a complex decision based on discernment because it is time sensitive.

  • Just what I needed

    WOW! I really love this blog and much needed right now. The Lord is showing me how Jesus picked His 12 disciples to do ministry but He also had His close 3 of the 12 who He opened up big things to. I believe it was all apart of their assignments of what they are supposed to do. It's a huge key for me going forward into this new year and moving into my own assignments.

  • So timely...

    Love the timing of this.
    This morning I was pondering the Mercy row on the RG Grid w/principles, knowing since the Mercy season started I've been puzzled by the 4th column, Essential Virtue: Pleasing God, not man.
    Only now, during this year of 2020, do I understand it...

    This is causing me to reflect and ponder the FOMO aspect of an adventure... maybe one I wasn’t assigned to? As someone with strong introvert tendencies just a few deep relationships/friendships matter yet between that and the fear of missing out... am I missing MY assignment.
    Years ago, God used one of the elements from Prince Caspian (The Chronicles of Narnia) to make a similar point. I’m not to follow my friends if God is calling me to go with Him alone.
    Wow.

    Thanks, not an easy one to hear but so necessary. Loyalty runs deep for teachers and the thought of 'disappointing' or upsetting someone you are loyal to is a hard one to accept. Really points to where your legitimacy lies...
