Don’t Waste Your Pain–Invest It

A sample of Daily Encounter by Dick Innes

"Dear Brothers [and Sisters], is your life full of
difficulties and temptations? Then be happy, for when
the way is rough, your patience has a chance to grow.
So let it grow, and don’t try to squirm out of your
problems. For when your patience is finally in full
bloom, then you will be ready for anything, strong in
character, full and complete."1

In almost every trial we face God is seeking to "tell"
us something. Sometimes the only time he can get our
attention is when we’re hurting sufficiently to slow
us down so we will stop and listen.

That has certainly been true in my life. On one
occasion, God used an accident and a time in the
hospital to get my attention and to speak to me. The
decision I made as a result ended up radically
changing the total course of my life. Another time God
used a major crisis and loss to expand my work. He used
another setback to get me started in writing. That was
more than four decades ago and I’m still writing!
When you are hurting, you can be sure that God has
something to say to you, too–something for your good.
Ask him to help you hear what it is and to give you the
courage to do what he is telling/leading you to do.
Whatever it is, you can be certain it will enrich your
life in one way or another.

Furthermore, whatever you do, don’t waste your pain.
Invest it in your own growth and then in helping
another fellow struggler along the way.

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, please help me to see how
you want to use all the trials that come my way to help
me grow and change my life for the better. And please
help me never to waste my pain but to invest it wisely
in my own growth and in making me a more effective
helper to other fellow strugglers. Thank you for
hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully in Jesus’
name, amen."

1. James 1:2-4 (TLB).

What Personality Type Are You?

Identifying DiSC Behavioral Styles – When Meeting People

Posted on June 8, 2012 by Janet Cortright


DiSC Behavioral Styles      If you’re new to DiSC Profiling or facilitating, you’ll enjoy the benefit of being able to identify the DiSC Style of significant people in your life or of someone you just met.

After years of experience, I can recognize the DiSC Styles of people within the first few minutes of meeting them. And you can do it too!

Clues to look for are how they use or express themselves. Here are a few cues to look for in someone you’ve just met to help you DiSCover their behavioral style.

High D Personality – Dominant – DiSC Behavioral Styles are motivated by: Control, Dominance and Challenges. Their personality moves outward and direct through their body language. They are expressive with their non-verbals. Their fists fly through the air and their language can be colorful. If they overuse their tendencies, they may move to quickly or interrupt and not let your finish your sentences.

High I Personality – Influence – DiSC Behavioral Styles are motivated by: Popularity, Status and Approval. Their personality spirals out and upward in it’s expression. They laugh easily and generally elicit smiles and laughter you. Their enthusiasm can be contagious. If they overuse their tendencies, they can be perceived as insincere or flippant.

High S Personality – Steadiness – DiSC Behavioral Styles are motivated by: Traditions, Status Quo and Stability. Their personality is inward and reserved, constant and subtle. Their slow movement and gentle energy is inviting. If they overuse their tendencies, they can be indecisive and slow to action.

High C Personality – Conscientious – DiSC Behavioral Styles are motivated by: Order, Precision and Proper Ways. Their personalities have have the lowest level of natural movement. They appear formal and structured. If they overuse their tendencies, they can appear rigid and are often perceived as critical and serious. People often tell them to “Lighten Up!”

These are just a few clues to watch for. You can learn a lot by observing facial features and body language to determine someone’s behavioral style.
