Note that a more comprehensive organizational chart may be required for larger or full-scale exercises. Furthermore, Logistics may be expanded to include transportation, public works, health (ie.
One prevailing principle in his progress is the idea of learning from the past and then moving on. We also talk about how he can better handle life’s situations without reacting and letting emotion control him. These discussions with our son also include talking about self-control and its importance, and we focus on how he can build trust through respect and obedience. Over the past six years, these questions have become automatic not just for addressing issues with our teenage boys but for tackling the struggles in our own lives.
Knowing I can partner with God and His Spirit to cultivate patience encourages me in tremendous ways because I realize that I don’t have to try and create and maintain patience in my own effort.
We have to remember that we simply cannot consistently practice patience — or any of the other fruit of the Spirit — in our own efforts. In moving from Thanksgiving to “Thanksliving,” we must take a deliberate and intentional approach to thankfulness. Moving from simply knowing that I should live out thankfulness to actually following through in tangible ways is a struggle I’m not proud to admit exists.
Changing my attitude to a more positive, thankful one is not going to happen by me wishing it. When we “Don’t Forget to Remember” and live with “Purposeful Remembering,” we keep God’s activity and character throughout history and in our own lives fresh in a way that fuels our faith.
Active remembering helps us trust God now and in the future because He’s always the same, and we can count on His consistency of character. The point of remembering as a thread throughout Scripture involves a focus on what God has done and continues to do in spite of what man has done and continues to do (human nature has not changed, after all).
Those tools include the Holy Spirit (John 14:26), who helps us remember Jesus’ teachings, God’s truths and God’s will as well as God’s working in our lives.
Another tool, Scripture (2 Peter 3:1-2), brings us the words of the prophets, Jesus’ teachings and Spirit-inspired instruction through Godly men.
We must sort through the mess of what our culture has done with remembrance and instead deliberately choose to let our remembering be directed by truth. The book of Deuteronomy tells God’s people to remember their slavery and their rebellion, to remember where they were before God’s intervention. Much of the OT Scripture about remembering focuses on remembering man’s rebelliousness for the purpose of again remembering God’s faithfulness, His promises and His leading. This purposeful, or maybe deliberate is a better word, remembering helps us take remembering from being just an activity of recollection to being an avenue through which we grow closer to God by learning to depend more on Him as we realize he will never fail us even when we fail Him. DISCUSSION: How does remembering God’s activity in your life — and being purposeful about this remembering — impact you today? While this description certainly describes the time I first fell in love 27 years ago with the man who is now my husband, that’s not the love relationship I’m talking about here.
When I think of what it means (and feels like) to fall in and out of love, I better understand the point God wanted to make to the Ephesians and why this message is so timeless and so very relevant for us still today both as individuals and as the corporate church. In other words, they lost the fervor (earnest feeling, ardor, passion and zeal) they once had for God.
When my husband and I grow distant from each other, even if just a little, we find that returning to what initially helped our love grow — spending quality time together, listening intently to each other, intentionally doing acts of kindness for one another, preferring one another, etc.
Remembering these varying degrees of love I’ve felt over the years for my spouse helps me better understand how to return to the fervor I once had for Christ before apathy and boredom crept into my life. The word used for “first” in this context means foremost, as in time, place and order, and the word used for “deeds” means toil or effort.
For the Christian, this means putting your relationship with God first, making it your top priority. Both pride and humility begin in a person’s mind and eventually become visible in their conduct. Choosing humility involves realizing your value as a redeemed child of God, value from Him and not in any way earned or created by you.
We must, like Christ, be willing to serve others with no thought for what we’ll get in return, never considering ourselves too good for association with anyone as we realize Jesus came to save everyone, not just the socially acceptable.

Though it presents some of the basic functions of an exercise planning team, it can be modified to suit the needs of your particular exercise, its objectives and degree of complexity, and your available resources. For example, in addition to the involvement of police, fire, and EMS are part of Operations during an exercise, it may be of interest to you to involve other entities, such as public works and hospitals. He realizes forgetting is not only impossible, but doing so denies who he is as well as holds impact well beyond himself.
He brought with him a rough start to life filled with more disappointments, struggles and hurts than most people face in a lifetime.


We deliberately talk often about how he can choose to overcome his past or let it define him. The answer is always “myself.” This brings understanding about focusing on controlling his own attitude, actions and words. This question helps him understand that while he may not have meant for something to happen, his actions or reactions set the stage for something to happen or somehow made a situation worse.
We then spend a few minutes discussing ideas, which usually include praying, taking a deep breath, walking away, taking a break, journaling and quoting scripture. They provide an intentional way to Put Your Behind in the Past and allow you to learn the value of Going Backward So You Can Move Forward. We do this by becoming increasingly aware of and following His convicting, guiding and encouraging us as well as His focusing, enabling and teaching us. If I’m tired, hungry or overwhelmed, I have almost no shot at maintaining any level of patience for very long, if at all. Simply put, the quicker I forgive myself and others, the more patience I have with myself and others. Partnering in this way not only multiplies the tools available for cultivating patience, but it also helps me understand why patience is so important. But more important than asking why patience should be important to me, I want to know why it’s important to God. In doing so, the actions of gratitude — the ways we show the thankfulness hopefully existing within us — become increasingly and continually visible. I must deliberately choose to pursue “Thanksliving,” and this happens by taking the time to regularly verbalize thankfulness — even when not encouraged by any holiday — and to also stop blocking God’s work in my life. This active remembering results in going well beyond recalling and to letting our remembering affect our lives in visible ways.
How do we know that we aren’t just recalling but are letting our remembering affect our lives in an active way? As I tell my boys when they make a mistake, “Learn from it and move on.” Too many people live in the past.
Understanding this thread helps instruct us in why, what and how remembering should take place in our lives.
The Old Testament chronicles God’s character interacting with man’s character, and studying it helps us remember His forgiveness, faithfulness, promises & deliverance in spite of man’s continual pattern of rebellion. The Holy Spirit dwells in us beginning at salvation and remains active in the life of the believer whose job is to simply not quench Him.
Regularly remembering and studying these words gives us valuable insight & instruction for everyday life. It reminds us of Jesus’ love & friendship to the point of His willingness to die for us.
Paul amplifies the point by telling us not to dwell on our past as we do this recalling, but to instead focus on God’s activity in our lives in spite of our mistakes and rebelliousness.
If so, you probably realize you don’t still feel the same way you did when that love was fresh and new.
Along with it came an understanding of the seriousness of sin and the thrill of being forgiven. You find yourself going through the motions of life, doing the busyness of life much like the Ephesians did. They became apathetic and were simply “doing church” without truly loving God or other Christians.
In other words, get your priorities back in order and do the most important things again, things that seemed so natural at first. What priorities need reestablished in order for love to be the primary driving force in your life? While I haven’t heard it since I was a kid, the words came immediately to mind when I decided to study pride and humility.
Where humility shows through in an absence of pride and arrogance and instead involves being unpretentious and unassuming, pride shows through in a lofty and often arrogant assumption of superiority. It means focusing on what God did for your redemption and then choosing to live that out in obedience by serving Him in whatever way He asks using the abilities, talents and gifts he gives.
This involved serving others, being criticized for associating with “lesser” sorts, and submitting to God’s will over His own. Choosing humility does not, unfortunately, mean pride remains forever absent from our lives.
If you have children in school or elderly parents across town, you will want a plan in place to connect and know they are safe. For further support to the Planning team, exercise documentation and evaluation may be joined by a simulation team, particularly in larger exercises. In the six years since he’s been our son, we’ve worked to undo the damage and bring him to a place of continued forward growth academically, mentally, socially and spiritually.
With every struggle we encounter, we talk in detail about the choices he made in that particular situation and how he can make adjustments for future decisions.
Related, we also make sure that he forgives where needed too, and we reference Ephesians 4:32 in that discussion.


Having tools he can use when struggles happen again is crucial to prevent repeating the same mistakes. If we avoid difficult situations and people, we simply won’t see significant growth with patience.
Twenty-seven years married to one of the most insanely-patient people I’ve ever met has drawn me toward patient habits.
We must stay aware of when patience is running thin and learn to walk away before it runs out much like Joseph did when Potipher’s wife continued pursuing him.
Trusting in God’s timing, or “waiting” on Him, increases our faith as we learn that He handles a great deal of our lives if we simply let Him and refuse to get ahead of His will.
And when we LET Him do this work in us, our Godly character becomes a testimony of patience to others.
But at least let’s consider the spirit of Thanksgiving as we approach the back end of summer. Serving God faithfully in the present means knowing and doing what He desires because we know from our past that He always does what’s best for us and simply asks us to trust him in that journey. Remembering helps us know how to live our everyday lives, how to treat people & how to live our lives focused on Him based on His instruction for doing so in Scripture.
In other words, a Scriptural understanding helps remembering become real and take on a living purpose as it goes from mere belief to activity in our lives. If we don’t, we too easily get overwhelmed & tend to forget to remember Him and what He’s done in our lives. Hopefully, though, the love you experience now is deeper and better, less based on emotion and more on relationship. What Do you remember when you first realized that he loved you enough to come to this earth as God in flesh? Either we choose to let go of pride and to humble ourselves before a Holy God, or we choose to suffer the consequences of opposing God. If phones don't work, or some neighbourhoods aren't accessible, what will you do? Get household members together and prepare a household emergency plan.

Unfortunately, my “trying to be patient” never helped me maintain any consistent level of patience.
Whatever your family traditionally does for Thanksgiving, why not make it happen this August too? For that matter, why not think about how to move from the yearly pilgrimage celebrating Thanksgiving as a holiday to a year-long “Thanksliving” frame of mind?
They tell the same stories over and over again, and a backward focus keeps them from living in the now or from ever moving forward. Serving God faithfully right now also speaks to faith, which often grows out of obedience as we gain more experience living in His consistently full grace.
Let’s look at what this activity might look like in a practical way in the life of a Christian. Yet, they were still found guilty of leaving the love they had when they became Christians & formed the church. While we may all truly believe that Christ died on the cross for our sins and then rose from the dead in defeat of sin, death and the devil (See 25 Verses About The Defeat of Satan), do we actually live that belief in the same spirit in which Christ made His way to the cross, the spirit of humility?
We will still have moments where pride rears its ugly head, but those are the moments where we can once again choose humility. Knowing what I can and can’t control takes the stress off my patience muscle in a huge way. Doing so grows that desire and moves our focus beyond just celebrating Thanksgiving and into a mindset of “Thanksliving” all year long. While we want to remember God’s activity throughout our lives, we don’t want to dwell on our depravity — on ourselves — in any way.
He always outdoes anything we can think or imagine (Ephesians 3:20), and some of us can think of and imagine quite a lot. It means returning to a dependence on him to continually rekindle that first love within our hearts and lives. Instead, we want to focus on what God has done to increase our faith about what He is doing and will yet do in our lives. But as we remember His work throughout our lives, we’ll see that His way often took us through the impossible, that it often created paths through the worst terrain, and that we came out stronger as closer to Him as a result.
It also means making a habit of doing the things that continually deepen our connection with him. One right outside your home and another outside your community, such as a library, community center, or place of worship.
