About some time that you you know experience you've been through that that strengthen your -- The real -- -- -- not just the got a smiling on the stage but yet some of that really happened to the real -- thing.
You know data I think that probably the biggest thing than any other small things along the way but the biggest thing was in.
When my mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
And you know I was in college and I've never seen my mother -- in her life and the doctors gave her a few weeks to live in.
No we had to do just what we asked people today to believe that god is still in control.
And that he still has a plan that you know even when the life -- out of control that god you're still in control so.
We just for me my mother didn't get well -- night but.
Little by little she got better and better and she defied all the odds I know that was God's goodness in her life but.
We had to fight the good fight of faith it was some dark moments in our in our.
You know -- -- but we say god you know you're still in control and so.
-- -- those experiences.
I know I've grown and that's what allows me to you know hopefully inspire others to know that no matter where you far.
You know when you believe nothing is impossible and I'm not saying that it might go it will -- about which they did it.
When you believe it makes your day go better -- allows god to do great things and down.
So that's what -- in a difficult time -- our -- is strengthened.
-- -- to -- your mom's a spark plug which little -- backstage where they're at an event and she hands out the the book of her testimony of that.
Experience and she she's a special lady a lot of energy there.
And this inspired people all over the world with that story with the that if -- amazing stuff.
How do you -- obvious that -- just survive in these things.
Well I think so much of it has to do with your attitude when you get -- -- but we're talking about so you know what this is the day the lord has made a wanna be my best today.
I'm gonna be good to somebody I'm when he use my gifts and talents and will make wise decisions.
I think when you have that that mentality that you know what I can move forward forward.
I don't have to -- -- -- you know god just let me get about a day got it so band got -- got so many problems in the economy.
You know that kind of mentality you were talking about a little earlier about.
You know but you know you feel can overwhelm you but when you come back to say you don't want God's in control of my life without being untested I know god will take care of me.
I believe that's how you know you get out of that survival mentality into the you know what I'm more flat today and will be good to somebody and -- be my very best.
In the book you talk about that can be opened opportunities is that what you mean -- to you it's an act of the will look.
In the middle of sitting here standing here in a sense emotionally bleeding out -- very -- 'cause life that just beat the snot out of me.
How do you -- mean is it just on a mental decision to be open.
Well I think that's where it starts I think you have to be opened it you know.
You know I guess I put it like estate SA you know what you got to see yourself not as -- tone that is -- -- That even in the the difficult times and we all face him all -- the -- PP people did but when you stay in faith.
God says he can bring it out he can bring out even better off than you were before.
But so many times even even in the scripture I keep going back -- I guess I'm a pastor but there was a man line -- the pool of Bethesda for 38 years and you know when Jesus came back and he said you know what's -- what do you want he's a while wanna get well and you know Jesus -- to do something he should you know get -- this day you can you can -- you can you can move forward.
You know the guy could set financially you know what I can't geez I've been here for 38 years and I got problems -- come from the long fan when I got this addiction.
You know what you gotta come to that point to where you side.
I'm not just gonna live another day defeated negative angry upset discouraged -- -- rise today.
And -- more than among the stepped into my destiny -- become who god created need to be.
-- -- -- -- stuff similar to that people all the time on in the financial arena.
And then I get the same knock that you get from time to time that that while you're and you're just used -- that's just -- But that's your shallow I mean if you really understood the depth of things -- you have more depth to your message board how do you respond to people that you do that -- You know David seems to me -- -- I read that the gospels when Jesus was here his message was simple he told stories.
He inspired people.
He he talked on the level will -- people war and you know and I'm -- for doctrine indeed -- things at all find it.
You know what we're dealing with every -- issues of life people that are going through divorces people that are.
Here at the medical center with cancer feed people that are facing life's challenges and to me that when you inspire them to let them know that they can make it and that they can accomplish your dreams and overcome obstacles.
I don't see how that slider Pollyanna it's helping people with a -- rubber meets the round.
It's honestly better it's shocking to me that that you can simply be nice and love people and encourage them.
And and somehow that terms and I hate mail.
You have you know if you do it's -- day -- reminds in the scriptures it stuck at the of the day would Jesus kill somebody.
But he -- along the Sabbath he killed a lot of young guys so you got criticized for doing something good and a look at sometimes life like you that you're not boasting he simply do what we're doing something good would helping people to.
To have hope to to overcome addictions and you know what people are still so we do on the wrong day you do with the wrong way but I try not to pay too much attention to it.
