  • - Do you feel likeyour life is on hold.
  • 00:00:00.557 --> 00:00:02.459
  • When we feel stuck,God says press in.
  • 00:00:02.459 --> 00:00:05.995
  • Let's talk about keeping oureyes focused on his purpose,
  • 00:00:05.995 --> 00:00:09.332
  • even in our mostchallenging season.
  • 00:00:09.332 --> 00:00:11.334
  • Come on, let's talk about it.
  • 00:00:11.334 --> 00:00:12.802
  • (melodious music)
  • 00:00:14.237 --> 00:00:17.040
  • You know, I remember feelingsuper stuck one time,
  • 00:00:38.795 --> 00:00:43.800
  • and I love what Holly saidyesterday in the conversation.
  • 00:00:45.201 --> 00:00:47.937
  • You were talking about,it's not about all
  • 00:00:47.937 --> 00:00:50.974
  • what we do with the Lord.
  • 00:00:50.974 --> 00:00:52.342
  • It's about who we're becoming.
  • 00:00:52.342 --> 00:00:54.244
  • And I had this experiencefor me that changed my life.
  • 00:00:54.244 --> 00:00:59.215
  • And you'll remember this.
  • 00:00:59.215 --> 00:01:00.717
  • Another thing that we geton this show this week,
  • 00:01:00.717 --> 00:01:03.119
  • is that we have 30 to40 years of friendship
  • 00:01:03.119 --> 00:01:07.457
  • with everybody on the screen.
  • 00:01:07.457 --> 00:01:09.292
  • So you have yourown relationships.
  • 00:01:09.292 --> 00:01:11.361
  • We all have our ownrelationships inbetween each other.
  • 00:01:11.361 --> 00:01:13.930
  • And I've known everybody forforever on this program today.
  • 00:01:13.930 --> 00:01:17.567
  • And so a lot of youwe've watched each other
  • 00:01:17.567 --> 00:01:21.037
  • go through theseseasons of time.
  • 00:01:21.037 --> 00:01:23.072
  • And I remember beingup in Los Angeles,
  • 00:01:23.072 --> 00:01:26.009
  • we moved up there in 1995.
  • 00:01:26.009 --> 00:01:28.611
  • And during that time we weretrying to do Christian movies.
  • 00:01:28.611 --> 00:01:32.048
  • We had left TBN back then,
  • 00:01:35.919 --> 00:01:38.121
  • and we werecompletely on our own.
  • 00:01:38.121 --> 00:01:41.524
  • And I remember therewas a certain time,
  • 00:01:41.524 --> 00:01:44.727
  • where we were having toraise money for a film,
  • 00:01:44.727 --> 00:01:49.132
  • and then we'd make the film.
  • 00:01:49.132 --> 00:01:50.800
  • And then we'd put itout into theaters.
  • 00:01:50.800 --> 00:01:52.835
  • And then we'd have toraise money for a film,
  • 00:01:52.835 --> 00:01:54.871
  • and then make a film.
  • 00:01:54.871 --> 00:01:56.105
  • And it was just grueling.
  • 00:01:56.105 --> 00:01:57.874
  • You know, it's likebuilding a house.
  • 00:01:57.874 --> 00:02:01.344
  • When people build houses, it'slike building one at a time
  • 00:02:01.344 --> 00:02:04.747
  • instead of a building,a big complex you know,
  • 00:02:04.747 --> 00:02:07.951
  • which is much easier.
  • 00:02:07.951 --> 00:02:09.185
  • So there was one point, we weredoing everything we felt God
  • 00:02:10.587 --> 00:02:14.290
  • had called us to do.
  • 00:02:14.290 --> 00:02:15.625
  • We were up there.
  • 00:02:15.625 --> 00:02:17.126
  • We were in the buildingwe believed he had us in.
  • 00:02:17.126 --> 00:02:20.096
  • In the home I believe he hadus in, you know all this.
  • 00:02:20.096 --> 00:02:22.799
  • And there came a pointwhere we were just stuck,
  • 00:02:25.068 --> 00:02:29.405
  • and it was like.
  • 00:02:29.405 --> 00:02:30.907
  • We were selling everythingwe had just to make payroll.
  • 00:02:30.907 --> 00:02:34.544
  • I mean, cars and jewelryand mortgaging our home,
  • 00:02:34.544 --> 00:02:38.581
  • and our children and anythingwe could find that we owned,
  • 00:02:38.581 --> 00:02:42.585
  • we were mortgaging it.(laughing)
  • 00:02:42.585 --> 00:02:44.387
  • And I just remember,I was just at the end.
  • 00:02:44.387 --> 00:02:48.191
  • And I was thinking, God,our intentions are so right.
  • 00:02:50.159 --> 00:02:54.864
  • We want to work for you.
  • 00:02:54.864 --> 00:02:56.032
  • We want to do whatyou've called us to do.
  • 00:02:56.032 --> 00:02:58.301
  • You've called us to make films,
  • 00:02:58.301 --> 00:02:59.969
  • and we were sopassionate about it.
  • 00:02:59.969 --> 00:03:02.605
  • But man, we were justscrambling so hard
  • 00:03:02.605 --> 00:03:05.642
  • just to make ends meet.
  • 00:03:05.642 --> 00:03:07.577
  • I'll never forget.
  • 00:03:07.577 --> 00:03:09.712
  • I walked out the door ofour home and I walked out
  • 00:03:09.712 --> 00:03:11.814
  • on this side yard that we had,
  • 00:03:11.814 --> 00:03:13.583
  • and we had a bit of a viewand we actually looked down
  • 00:03:13.583 --> 00:03:16.719
  • over the Hanna-Barbera building,where we had our offices.
  • 00:03:16.719 --> 00:03:20.623
  • And I just said, and I wascrying out to God loud,
  • 00:03:23.226 --> 00:03:26.529
  • in a loud voice, not just inmy heart, it was a loud voice.
  • 00:03:26.529 --> 00:03:30.099
  • And I said, God, I said,if you could just keep us
  • 00:03:30.099 --> 00:03:35.004
  • from struggling so hard.
  • 00:03:35.004 --> 00:03:37.640
  • And I was getting ready to say,
  • 00:03:38.641 --> 00:03:39.876
  • look at all that wecould be doing for you.
  • 00:03:39.876 --> 00:03:42.245
  • But before I got look at allthat we could be doing for you,
  • 00:03:43.646 --> 00:03:46.582
  • it was like God hitme in the stomach
  • 00:03:46.582 --> 00:03:49.786
  • with the mostloving two by four.
  • 00:03:49.786 --> 00:03:51.821
  • And he said, don't youthink that it's anything
  • 00:03:51.821 --> 00:03:55.558
  • that you do for me,but what I had done
  • 00:03:55.558 --> 00:03:59.195
  • and what I can do onthe inside of you.
  • 00:03:59.195 --> 00:04:01.831
  • And I just rememberthat, you know what?
  • 00:04:03.566 --> 00:04:06.302
  • I don't really have todo anything for the Lord.
  • 00:04:06.302 --> 00:04:10.206
  • As long as I'm letting him dothe work on the inside of me,
  • 00:04:10.206 --> 00:04:15.211
  • that he wants to do,
  • 00:04:15.945 --> 00:04:17.447
  • then I automatically fulfillmy purpose and my calling.
  • 00:04:17.447 --> 00:04:22.018
  • If I can just let go of.
  • 00:04:22.752 --> 00:04:25.221
  • God doesn't reallyneed us to do things,
  • 00:04:25.221 --> 00:04:28.958
  • he can pick anybody hechooses, he can use donkeys.
  • 00:04:28.958 --> 00:04:32.428
  • (laughing)
  • 00:04:32.428 --> 00:04:33.629
  • He'll get his purpose fulfilled.
  • 00:04:33.629 --> 00:04:36.366
  • But man, for us to befulfilled in our life,
  • 00:04:36.366 --> 00:04:39.702
  • and in our purpose and destiny,
  • 00:04:39.702 --> 00:04:41.404
  • it's giving it all toGod and letting him
  • 00:04:41.404 --> 00:04:43.506
  • do the work inside of us.
  • 00:04:43.506 --> 00:04:45.441
  • That I true believe in,then out of that flow,
  • 00:04:45.441 --> 00:04:49.112
  • we automatically do whathe's called us to do.
  • 00:04:49.112 --> 00:04:52.081
  • - Well, and don'tyou think too Laurie,
  • 00:04:52.081 --> 00:04:55.551
  • that part of it is whenyou come into that place,
  • 00:04:55.551 --> 00:04:59.055
  • when you really trulyaccept that God really is
  • 00:04:59.055 --> 00:05:01.791
  • in charge of your life and thathis plans for you are good,
  • 00:05:01.791 --> 00:05:06.429
  • and you understand his grace,then you can let it go.
  • 00:05:06.429 --> 00:05:09.632
  • And it's like when you hang on?
  • 00:05:09.632 --> 00:05:11.134
  • You want somethingso bad it evades you.
  • 00:05:11.134 --> 00:05:13.302
  • And then when you letit go, it comes to you.
  • 00:05:13.302 --> 00:05:17.440
  • And it comes to inbigger and better ways
  • 00:05:17.440 --> 00:05:20.309
  • than you would have thought.
  • 00:05:20.309 --> 00:05:21.778
  • But we get stuck trying tofeel like it's this one thing,
  • 00:05:21.778 --> 00:05:24.514
  • or it has to be this in orderto accomplish our purpose.
  • 00:05:24.514 --> 00:05:27.316
  • And God said, no, it'sso much bigger than that,
  • 00:05:27.316 --> 00:05:30.186
  • that I want to do things,
  • 00:05:30.186 --> 00:05:31.721
  • but you have to relax with it
  • 00:05:31.721 --> 00:05:33.589
  • and just let itflow through you.
  • 00:05:33.589 --> 00:05:35.758
  • - We talked about ityesterday about distractions,
  • 00:05:35.758 --> 00:05:38.327
  • and I know we're goingto help somebody today,
  • 00:05:38.327 --> 00:05:41.798
  • because you guys arealready helping me.
  • 00:05:41.798 --> 00:05:44.333
  • Because being a little older,
  • 00:05:44.333 --> 00:05:47.336
  • one of the blessingsin getting older
  • 00:05:47.336 --> 00:05:50.506
  • is that you become wiser.
  • 00:05:50.506 --> 00:05:52.475
  • And also you liketo simplify life.
  • 00:05:52.475 --> 00:05:56.145
  • I like to simplify life.What about you girls?
  • 00:05:56.145 --> 00:05:58.314
  • I like to like, well,how can I do this
  • 00:05:58.314 --> 00:06:00.049
  • in a more simple, easy way?
  • 00:06:00.049 --> 00:06:01.684
  • And I think if we're goingto focus on one thing,
  • 00:06:01.684 --> 00:06:05.288
  • in knowing our purpose,we need to focus on
  • 00:06:05.288 --> 00:06:08.357
  • who we're becoming.
  • 00:06:08.357 --> 00:06:10.026
  • I think it is so truethat when we focus
  • 00:06:10.026 --> 00:06:13.396
  • on who we're becoming,
  • 00:06:13.396 --> 00:06:14.964
  • we're going to automaticallyfulfill our purpose.
  • 00:06:14.964 --> 00:06:18.000
  • Because God works on the inside.
  • 00:06:18.000 --> 00:06:21.037
  • He's working on our hearts.
  • 00:06:21.037 --> 00:06:22.605
  • He's taking things out andhe's putting things in.
  • 00:06:24.040 --> 00:06:28.611
  • And as we allow him to do that,
  • 00:06:28.611 --> 00:06:31.113
  • we end up being at the rightplace, at the right time,
  • 00:06:31.113 --> 00:06:34.617
  • doing what Godhas told us to do,
  • 00:06:34.617 --> 00:06:36.319
  • simply because we'refocusing on becoming
  • 00:06:36.319 --> 00:06:39.889
  • who he wants us to become.
  • 00:06:39.889 --> 00:06:41.524
  • So I think, Holly mighthave a different opinion.
  • 00:06:41.524 --> 00:06:45.761
  • I really do think thatwhen you focus on becoming
  • 00:06:45.761 --> 00:06:49.065
  • who God has called you to be,you will fulfill your purpose.
  • 00:06:49.065 --> 00:06:54.070
  • - No 100%.
  • 00:06:54.670 --> 00:06:56.205
  • And you know, I think for me,
  • 00:06:56.205 --> 00:06:58.407
  • even the whole ideabehind being, and doing.
  • 00:06:58.407 --> 00:07:02.845
  • I'm a really good doer.
  • 00:07:02.845 --> 00:07:04.947
  • If we ever talkabout the Enneogram,
  • 00:07:04.947 --> 00:07:07.283
  • I'm an eight,seven, seven, eight.
  • 00:07:07.283 --> 00:07:08.784
  • I'm an active go getter, doer,make it happen kind of girl.
  • 00:07:08.784 --> 00:07:11.888
  • But I haven't always beenthat great at the be,
  • 00:07:13.923 --> 00:07:16.759
  • just be Holly, just be.
  • 00:07:16.759 --> 00:07:20.496
  • And so I think that'sbeen the journey with me,
  • 00:07:20.496 --> 00:07:22.965
  • is that God is way moreinterested in my just being,
  • 00:07:22.965 --> 00:07:27.036
  • like the who I am,
  • 00:07:27.036 --> 00:07:28.838
  • then all the thingsthat I'm doing.
  • 00:07:28.838 --> 00:07:31.040
  • Now am I supposed tobe doing things? Yes.
  • 00:07:31.040 --> 00:07:33.209
  • Has he trusted mewith gift and talent,
  • 00:07:33.209 --> 00:07:35.678
  • and ability to do. Yes,
  • 00:07:35.678 --> 00:07:37.580
  • But not at theexpense of who I am.
  • 00:07:37.580 --> 00:07:41.050
  • And so I think, andespecially in ministry,
  • 00:07:41.050 --> 00:07:42.818
  • sometimes we canlose who we are,
  • 00:07:42.818 --> 00:07:45.655
  • as we're trying toaccomplish things,
  • 00:07:45.655 --> 00:07:47.223
  • like Laurie said for God.
  • 00:07:47.223 --> 00:07:48.424
  • I'm doing this for you, God.
  • 00:07:48.424 --> 00:07:50.259
  • He goes, I justwant you to love me.
  • 00:07:50.259 --> 00:07:52.094
  • And I think if I couldsay one thing to,
  • 00:07:53.729 --> 00:07:55.598
  • just in pastoring for 35 years,
  • 00:07:55.598 --> 00:07:58.367
  • what I learned with somany younger people,
  • 00:07:58.367 --> 00:08:01.771
  • is that they get distractedby the dream in their heart.
  • 00:08:01.771 --> 00:08:06.409
  • They have this bigdream in their heart
  • 00:08:06.409 --> 00:08:08.411
  • about what theywant to accomplish,
  • 00:08:08.411 --> 00:08:10.413
  • and they overlookwhat's in their hand.
  • 00:08:10.413 --> 00:08:13.749
  • And I think God movesthrough what's in your hand.
  • 00:08:13.749 --> 00:08:16.485
  • So if I could just encourageanybody watching right now,
  • 00:08:16.485 --> 00:08:18.988
  • what is in your hand to do?
  • 00:08:18.988 --> 00:08:21.591
  • Is it a family? Isit a connect group?
  • 00:08:21.591 --> 00:08:24.226
  • Is it a job?
  • 00:08:24.226 --> 00:08:26.329
  • Is it relationship?What is in your hand?
  • 00:08:26.329 --> 00:08:29.599
  • And I think when we're faithfulwith what's in our hand,
  • 00:08:29.599 --> 00:08:32.868
  • then God actually givesus the dream in our heart,
  • 00:08:32.868 --> 00:08:36.472
  • but we can't get sodistracted by the big dream
  • 00:08:36.472 --> 00:08:40.009
  • that we overlook,
  • 00:08:40.009 --> 00:08:41.911
  • what might seem to be asmall thing in our hand.
  • 00:08:41.911 --> 00:08:45.247
  • So just be faithful.
  • 00:08:45.247 --> 00:08:46.549
  • When Moses had thatstaff in his hand,
  • 00:08:47.750 --> 00:08:50.686
  • and that's what hehad in his hand.
  • 00:08:50.686 --> 00:08:52.989
  • And he got to do great things
  • 00:08:52.989 --> 00:08:54.624
  • because of what was in his hand.
  • 00:08:54.624 --> 00:08:56.025
  • So it's just a questionthat I'm putting out there
  • 00:08:57.460 --> 00:08:58.694
  • to everybody watching,what's in your hand?
  • 00:08:58.694 --> 00:09:00.830
  • Don't get so distracted by thedream that's in your heart.
  • 00:09:00.830 --> 00:09:03.633
  • What's in your hand to dothat actually might help
  • 00:09:03.633 --> 00:09:05.901
  • you get there?
  • 00:09:05.901 --> 00:09:07.303
  • So what are yourthoughts, Victoria?
  • 00:09:07.303 --> 00:09:09.071
  • - That's so good becausethe scripture says,
  • 00:09:10.239 --> 00:09:12.608
  • little by little you'llpossess the land.
  • 00:09:12.608 --> 00:09:15.645
  • And so often we want it alltoday, but it's a journey.
  • 00:09:15.645 --> 00:09:18.881
  • It's little by little.
  • 00:09:18.881 --> 00:09:20.316
  • I love that to saywhat's in my hands today.
  • 00:09:20.316 --> 00:09:23.452
  • What has God givenme today to do?
  • 00:09:23.452 --> 00:09:26.355
  • And I can hear some people say,
  • 00:09:26.355 --> 00:09:27.723
  • I don't know what isin my hands today.
  • 00:09:27.723 --> 00:09:30.426
  • I've not done anythingI was supposed to.
  • 00:09:30.426 --> 00:09:32.662
  • And they're lookingback at the past,
  • 00:09:32.662 --> 00:09:34.330
  • and they're like, I blew it.
  • 00:09:34.330 --> 00:09:36.232
  • How am I ever going toget my footing again?
  • 00:09:36.232 --> 00:09:38.768
  • But you know what Ithink about David,
  • 00:09:38.768 --> 00:09:40.436
  • and we look at hislife and the Bible says
  • 00:09:40.436 --> 00:09:42.638
  • he was a man afterGod's own heart,
  • 00:09:42.638 --> 00:09:46.275
  • but he had a lotof failures, okay.
  • 00:09:46.275 --> 00:09:49.645
  • I mean, he did somethings that weren't right,
  • 00:09:49.645 --> 00:09:52.581
  • but David always got upagain and leaned into God.
  • 00:09:52.581 --> 00:09:57.520
  • In fact, I think aboutthat scripture that says,
  • 00:09:57.520 --> 00:09:59.755
  • what do I render unto theLord? This is what David said.
  • 00:09:59.755 --> 00:10:02.858
  • You know, how can I pay Godback for all he's done for me?
  • 00:10:02.858 --> 00:10:05.895
  • I mean, I've failed.
  • 00:10:05.895 --> 00:10:07.063
  • I've gotten up. Ifailed, I've gotten up.
  • 00:10:07.063 --> 00:10:08.864
  • And he said this andit's always struck me.
  • 00:10:08.864 --> 00:10:11.867
  • I will take up the cup of mysalvation and give him glory.
  • 00:10:11.867 --> 00:10:16.706
  • What he was saying was,
  • 00:10:16.706 --> 00:10:18.040
  • I'm going to take whatyou given to me, God.
  • 00:10:18.040 --> 00:10:20.409
  • What's in my hands today.
  • 00:10:20.409 --> 00:10:21.677
  • It doesn't matter what'sin my past yesterday,
  • 00:10:21.677 --> 00:10:24.046
  • what's in my hands today.
  • 00:10:24.046 --> 00:10:25.281
  • I'm going to take upthe cup of my salvation,
  • 00:10:25.281 --> 00:10:27.950
  • and I'm going togive you the glory.
  • 00:10:27.950 --> 00:10:29.952
  • I really believe thatwhen we begin to do
  • 00:10:29.952 --> 00:10:33.823
  • what we know to do today,that that's pleasing to God.
  • 00:10:33.823 --> 00:10:38.494
  • And I've found in my times whenI get stuck and I get stuck,
  • 00:10:38.494 --> 00:10:42.698
  • I don't get upevery morning like,
  • 00:10:42.698 --> 00:10:44.200
  • whee I've done so good today.
  • 00:10:44.200 --> 00:10:46.669
  • I have to talk myselfinto some things.
  • 00:10:46.669 --> 00:10:49.638
  • I have to tellmyself, you know what?
  • 00:10:49.638 --> 00:10:52.274
  • God's got a plan and apurpose for your life.
  • 00:10:52.274 --> 00:10:55.044
  • I have to listen tothe conversations
  • 00:10:55.044 --> 00:10:56.946
  • that are going on insideof my head, about myself,
  • 00:10:56.946 --> 00:11:01.150
  • about my situation, aboutthe people surrounding me,
  • 00:11:01.150 --> 00:11:05.187
  • and I have to getthese things straight.
  • 00:11:05.187 --> 00:11:07.356
  • And I think that is reallythe enemy of our purpose,
  • 00:11:07.356 --> 00:11:10.459
  • is having thewrong conversations
  • 00:11:10.459 --> 00:11:13.796
  • about what's goingon in our life.
  • 00:11:13.796 --> 00:11:15.831
  • With our own self it's soeasy to blame yesterday,
  • 00:11:15.831 --> 00:11:19.802
  • why I can't fulfilltoday, but you know what?
  • 00:11:19.802 --> 00:11:22.872
  • I feel that we have to pickup where we are right now,
  • 00:11:22.872 --> 00:11:25.741
  • this salvation, that'show we give glory to God,
  • 00:11:25.741 --> 00:11:29.245
  • is doing what weknow to do today.
  • 00:11:29.245 --> 00:11:31.614
  • And we can't change the past.
  • 00:11:31.614 --> 00:11:33.716
  • We can't run into the future.
  • 00:11:33.716 --> 00:11:35.751
  • We have only what we have today,
  • 00:11:35.751 --> 00:11:37.820
  • and we have to makethe most of it.
  • 00:11:37.820 --> 00:11:39.755
  • And we have to justsay, God, you know what?
  • 00:11:39.755 --> 00:11:42.324
  • I'm doing good today.
  • 00:11:42.324 --> 00:11:43.659
  • I think we all want to hear,
  • 00:11:43.659 --> 00:11:44.860
  • well done, my goodand faithful servant.
  • 00:11:44.860 --> 00:11:47.997
  • Well done, well done.
  • 00:11:47.997 --> 00:11:49.532
  • Well, I really believe thatsometimes we need to get up
  • 00:11:49.532 --> 00:11:52.268
  • in the morning and say,well done, Victoria.
  • 00:11:52.268 --> 00:11:55.805
  • May not have been your best,
  • 00:11:55.805 --> 00:11:57.339
  • but well done with what youhad today, and move forward.
  • 00:11:57.339 --> 00:12:00.442
  • I think that'show we get unstuck
  • 00:12:00.442 --> 00:12:02.845
  • when the trials of lifetry to get us planted
  • 00:12:02.845 --> 00:12:06.282
  • in the same place.
  • 00:12:06.282 --> 00:12:07.950
  • - Yeah. You know,that's so good.
  • 00:12:07.950 --> 00:12:09.785
  • I think that destiny andpurpose and your calling
  • 00:12:09.785 --> 00:12:12.087
  • is probably the mostpowerful thing on earth.
  • 00:12:12.087 --> 00:12:16.258
  • And I don't thinkanything can really thwart
  • 00:12:16.258 --> 00:12:20.162
  • what God has called us to do,
  • 00:12:21.030 --> 00:12:22.865
  • except our own stupidity maybe.
  • 00:12:22.865 --> 00:12:25.434
  • I heard someone one time say,
  • 00:12:27.469 --> 00:12:29.205
  • I don't know what todo next. I am stuck.
  • 00:12:29.205 --> 00:12:32.308
  • It feels like I'vedone everything.
  • 00:12:32.308 --> 00:12:35.411
  • And the Lord spoketo him and said,
  • 00:12:35.411 --> 00:12:37.947
  • why don't you just do thelast thing I told you to do.
  • 00:12:37.947 --> 00:12:41.417
  • - Yes.- The last thing,
  • 00:12:41.417 --> 00:12:43.752
  • just keep doing the last thingthat you were told to do.
  • 00:12:43.752 --> 00:12:48.257
  • And we've talked all thisweek about your calling,
  • 00:12:48.257 --> 00:12:51.894
  • which I think worksperfectly and your purpose.
  • 00:12:51.894 --> 00:12:55.798
  • You act so eloquent with that.
  • 00:12:55.798 --> 00:12:58.033
  • - That I don't knowabout eloquent, but.
  • 00:12:59.235 --> 00:13:01.070
  • I look at purpose and callingjust slightly different,
  • 00:13:01.070 --> 00:13:04.473
  • in the sense that yourpurpose is sometimes
  • 00:13:04.473 --> 00:13:06.909
  • something thatyou do externally,
  • 00:13:06.909 --> 00:13:08.811
  • but your calling is somethingthat comes from internal.
  • 00:13:08.811 --> 00:13:11.647
  • The internal pushes metowards an external action,
  • 00:13:11.647 --> 00:13:15.718
  • which is purpose.
  • 00:13:15.718 --> 00:13:17.152
  • And in general, I believe,like I said earlier,
  • 00:13:17.152 --> 00:13:19.655
  • that we all havea common purpose
  • 00:13:19.655 --> 00:13:21.290
  • and that is generallyto help others.
  • 00:13:21.290 --> 00:13:23.125
  • That's part of thepurpose of God.
  • 00:13:23.125 --> 00:13:24.894
  • But for me,
  • 00:13:26.695 --> 00:13:27.763
  • people would sayfor years and years,
  • 00:13:29.498 --> 00:13:31.867
  • you gotta to findthat one thing.
  • 00:13:31.867 --> 00:13:33.936
  • You know the movieCity Slickers,
  • 00:13:33.936 --> 00:13:36.071
  • that old timer goes,what's that one thing.
  • 00:13:36.071 --> 00:13:38.374
  • I'd go to conferences andI would be with people.
  • 00:13:38.374 --> 00:13:42.878
  • And the theme wasis you gotta to know
  • 00:13:42.878 --> 00:13:44.747
  • what your purpose is in life.
  • 00:13:44.747 --> 00:13:45.981
  • And that was veryfrustrating for me,
  • 00:13:45.981 --> 00:13:48.684
  • because I felt like I haddone everything I knew to do.
  • 00:13:48.684 --> 00:13:52.855
  • And then I rememberone time taking a test
  • 00:13:52.855 --> 00:13:54.623
  • with my sister-in-law,Sheila Gerald,
  • 00:13:54.623 --> 00:13:56.759
  • who's just such an amazing lady.
  • 00:13:56.759 --> 00:13:58.360
  • And she said, let's figureout what your purpose is.
  • 00:13:58.360 --> 00:14:01.430
  • And I said, okay.
  • 00:14:01.430 --> 00:14:02.631
  • And so we did thistest together.
  • 00:14:02.631 --> 00:14:04.099
  • And when we got done, shesaid, I'm totally frustrated.
  • 00:14:04.099 --> 00:14:06.902
  • I do not know whatyour purposes either.
  • 00:14:06.902 --> 00:14:09.738
  • But for years it took me.
  • 00:14:09.738 --> 00:14:11.674
  • It took me a long, long timeto understand that my purpose,
  • 00:14:11.674 --> 00:14:16.078
  • and my calling was different.
  • 00:14:16.078 --> 00:14:17.579
  • And God said to me one dayand we're jumping on a head,
  • 00:14:17.579 --> 00:14:20.049
  • but God said to me one day,
  • 00:14:20.049 --> 00:14:21.684
  • your calling is aboutcreating atmosphere.
  • 00:14:21.684 --> 00:14:24.420
  • And the way my callingwould evidence itself
  • 00:14:25.621 --> 00:14:29.425
  • would show up inmany different ways,
  • 00:14:29.425 --> 00:14:31.493
  • and I'll talk about that later.
  • 00:14:31.493 --> 00:14:32.995
  • But knowing that I no longerfelt stuck, I felt like, okay.
  • 00:14:32.995 --> 00:14:37.666
  • And then God also told me,
  • 00:14:39.001 --> 00:14:41.770
  • because I love to do avariety of different things.
  • 00:14:41.770 --> 00:14:44.640
  • And it was like, okay, Idon't have that one thing.
  • 00:14:44.640 --> 00:14:46.875
  • And the Lord said to me oneday, and it freed me forever.
  • 00:14:46.875 --> 00:14:50.412
  • I'm free to this day, hesaid, you're a sampler.
  • 00:14:50.412 --> 00:14:52.781
  • And when he said that to me,I was like, I got unstuck.
  • 00:14:52.781 --> 00:14:57.019
  • I knew it was okay.
  • 00:14:57.019 --> 00:14:58.220
  • I didn't have tohave that one thing,
  • 00:14:58.220 --> 00:15:00.255
  • like the guy in City Slickers,
  • 00:15:00.255 --> 00:15:02.458
  • would say that I coulddo a lot of things,
  • 00:15:02.458 --> 00:15:05.427
  • and accomplish purpose,
  • 00:15:05.427 --> 00:15:06.895
  • but I understood my callingwas different than that.
  • 00:15:06.895 --> 00:15:10.032
  • - Good. You're going totalk more about that.
  • 00:15:10.032 --> 00:15:11.567
  • - Yes I am.- Later.
  • 00:15:11.567 --> 00:15:14.069
  • (laughing)- I love that as far as.
  • 00:15:14.069 --> 00:15:16.338
  • 'Cause really the highcalling is in Christ.
  • 00:15:16.338 --> 00:15:20.275
  • The high calling is to servehim and to magnify his name.
  • 00:15:20.275 --> 00:15:25.280
  • And whenever we stayfocused on the high calling,
  • 00:15:27.516 --> 00:15:31.553
  • God will use every gift andtalent that he's given us.
  • 00:15:31.553 --> 00:15:35.591
  • And some will learn to fulfillthe purpose of doing that,
  • 00:15:35.591 --> 00:15:38.961
  • wherever he wants you to be.
  • 00:15:38.961 --> 00:15:40.496
  • And so you can getunstuck really quick.
  • 00:15:40.496 --> 00:15:44.266
  • Like Victoria wassaying, first of all,
  • 00:15:44.266 --> 00:15:46.135
  • understanding thepower of praising God
  • 00:15:46.135 --> 00:15:48.203
  • for what you alreadyhave accomplished.
  • 00:15:48.203 --> 00:15:50.572
  • We're all still here.
  • 00:15:50.572 --> 00:15:51.940
  • And if there ever was a time,
  • 00:15:53.142 --> 00:15:55.911
  • we should understandour high call,
  • 00:15:55.911 --> 00:15:58.447
  • and our number one purpose.
  • 00:15:58.447 --> 00:16:00.649
  • And that's all of us.
  • 00:16:00.649 --> 00:16:01.984
  • Because when we lookat the uncertainties
  • 00:16:01.984 --> 00:16:04.153
  • that we're living in,
  • 00:16:04.153 --> 00:16:05.621
  • a lot of things we had plannedon doing, we're not doing.
  • 00:16:05.621 --> 00:16:09.858
  • But the one thing thatwe've been called to do,
  • 00:16:11.493 --> 00:16:14.830
  • the one thing that's themost important purpose
  • 00:16:14.830 --> 00:16:17.466
  • for all of us as believers,
  • 00:16:17.466 --> 00:16:19.334
  • we can continue to do, nomatter what's happening.
  • 00:16:19.334 --> 00:16:23.172
  • I am not uncertain aboutwho I am and who I serve,
  • 00:16:23.172 --> 00:16:26.375
  • and who I shouldplease every single day
  • 00:16:26.375 --> 00:16:28.777
  • with everything that I do.
  • 00:16:28.777 --> 00:16:30.379
  • That is always the goal,
  • 00:16:30.379 --> 00:16:31.947
  • is to lift God up,is to magnify him.
  • 00:16:31.947 --> 00:16:35.751
  • And I think through thatcalling, purpose is fulfilled
  • 00:16:35.751 --> 00:16:39.822
  • because we're here tomagnify him so that others,
  • 00:16:39.822 --> 00:16:43.225
  • who don't know him, and theothers who are uncertain,
  • 00:16:43.225 --> 00:16:47.096
  • and afraid because we don't know
  • 00:16:47.096 --> 00:16:49.231
  • what's happeningtoday or tomorrow.
  • 00:16:49.231 --> 00:16:51.333
  • But because we know the one whois in control of all things,
  • 00:16:51.333 --> 00:16:55.871
  • we can rest and we cancontinue to walk in our purpose
  • 00:16:55.871 --> 00:16:59.842
  • and our calling wherever we are.
  • 00:16:59.842 --> 00:17:01.844
  • Like going back towhat's in your hand,
  • 00:17:01.844 --> 00:17:03.846
  • what is God askingyou to do today?
  • 00:17:03.846 --> 00:17:05.814
  • Who needs food that you know,
  • 00:17:05.814 --> 00:17:08.183
  • who needs a callto be encouraged?
  • 00:17:08.183 --> 00:17:10.285
  • We are here to be like Christand to magnify who he is
  • 00:17:10.285 --> 00:17:15.090
  • in every situation, inevery stage of life,
  • 00:17:15.090 --> 00:17:17.693
  • it doesn't matter how youngyou are or how old you are.
  • 00:17:17.693 --> 00:17:20.462
  • You can become unstucktoday by pressing in,
  • 00:17:20.462 --> 00:17:23.665
  • and just doing thosethings that you know to do.
  • 00:17:23.665 --> 00:17:27.436
  • I think it was Laurie that said,do what God told you to do.
  • 00:17:27.436 --> 00:17:30.606
  • The last thing he told youto do, continue to do that.
  • 00:17:30.606 --> 00:17:34.109
  • The scripture says that Iwill press toward the mark.
  • 00:17:34.109 --> 00:17:37.746
  • That means, like Victoria said,
  • 00:17:37.746 --> 00:17:39.448
  • you gonna have to talkto yourself some days.
  • 00:17:39.448 --> 00:17:41.750
  • You don't get up saying,
  • 00:17:41.750 --> 00:17:42.985
  • oh, I'm just so readyto fulfill my call,
  • 00:17:42.985 --> 00:17:45.154
  • and my purpose every day.
  • 00:17:45.154 --> 00:17:46.722
  • But you have to talk toyourself and command your soul
  • 00:17:46.722 --> 00:17:50.559
  • to worship and to do whatGod has called you to do.
  • 00:17:50.559 --> 00:17:53.428
  • And shut out all the othervoices that will try to hinder,
  • 00:17:53.428 --> 00:17:57.566
  • or distract youand keep you stuck
  • 00:17:57.566 --> 00:18:00.035
  • in trying to figureout something.
  • 00:18:00.035 --> 00:18:02.171
  • And it's right in front of you.
  • 00:18:02.171 --> 00:18:03.872
  • A lot of time, your purposeis right in front of you.
  • 00:18:03.872 --> 00:18:07.176
  • And it's where God hasput you so you can serve,
  • 00:18:07.176 --> 00:18:10.946
  • and make a difference.
  • 00:18:10.946 --> 00:18:12.581
  • - Yeah, actually that'ssuch a beautiful reminder,
  • 00:18:12.581 --> 00:18:15.150
  • because sometimes we mightfeel like we're stuck
  • 00:18:15.150 --> 00:18:18.420
  • because of a circumstancethat's come at us, or toward us.
  • 00:18:18.420 --> 00:18:23.058
  • Here's COVID, and somaybe now we feel stuck,
  • 00:18:23.058 --> 00:18:27.462
  • but the thing that youjust so beautifully said,
  • 00:18:27.462 --> 00:18:30.699
  • right there CeCe, is that ourpurpose is to worship God.
  • 00:18:30.699 --> 00:18:34.303
  • And we can do that no matterwhat the circumstance is,
  • 00:18:34.303 --> 00:18:37.873
  • no matter what it isthat's coming against us.
  • 00:18:37.873 --> 00:18:40.509
  • And so if we justremember that our purpose,
  • 00:18:40.509 --> 00:18:43.812
  • we were put here to worship him,
  • 00:18:43.812 --> 00:18:46.582
  • so that our life reflectshis love and his light.
  • 00:18:46.582 --> 00:18:50.285
  • And that can happen no matterwhat's going on around us,
  • 00:18:50.285 --> 00:18:54.656
  • or we should be ableto make that happen.
  • 00:18:54.656 --> 00:18:57.759
  • I was reading recentlyjust when Paul wrote.
  • 00:18:58.961 --> 00:19:03.665
  • He challenged us.
  • 00:19:04.399 --> 00:19:05.367
  • He said in all circumstances,
  • 00:19:05.367 --> 00:19:08.537
  • give thanks in all circumstances
  • 00:19:08.537 --> 00:19:10.472
  • for this is God's will for you.
  • 00:19:10.472 --> 00:19:12.641
  • And I think so manytimes we're wondering,
  • 00:19:13.842 --> 00:19:16.044
  • especially youngpeople are wondering
  • 00:19:16.044 --> 00:19:17.279
  • what's God's will for my life.
  • 00:19:17.279 --> 00:19:18.680
  • What is it thatGod wants me to do?
  • 00:19:18.680 --> 00:19:20.315
  • What is his will.
  • 00:19:20.315 --> 00:19:21.583
  • And God's will for usisn't this big mystical,
  • 00:19:21.583 --> 00:19:24.653
  • fairy dust cloud that descends.
  • 00:19:24.653 --> 00:19:27.189
  • That verse gives us likea really practical thing
  • 00:19:27.189 --> 00:19:30.158
  • that we can do.
  • 00:19:30.158 --> 00:19:31.560
  • What is one of thepractical things we can do
  • 00:19:31.560 --> 00:19:34.162
  • to get unstuck in our purpose?
  • 00:19:34.162 --> 00:19:35.697
  • One of the practicalthings we can do to fulfill
  • 00:19:35.697 --> 00:19:39.401
  • what God has forus, is give thanks.
  • 00:19:39.401 --> 00:19:42.004
  • Be grateful inall circumstances.
  • 00:19:42.004 --> 00:19:44.473
  • I mean, you don't have to givethanks for the circumstance,
  • 00:19:45.907 --> 00:19:47.609
  • because there are someyucky circumstances
  • 00:19:47.609 --> 00:19:50.245
  • happening right now.
  • 00:19:50.245 --> 00:19:51.179
  • But even in the middle of it,
  • 00:19:51.179 --> 00:19:53.548
  • can we have anykind of gratitude.
  • 00:19:53.548 --> 00:19:56.451
  • And that's where I got busted,
  • 00:19:56.451 --> 00:19:57.986
  • because I feel like I was doingso much complaining about.
  • 00:19:57.986 --> 00:20:02.324
  • And now I know that all ofyou women are Holy women,
  • 00:20:02.324 --> 00:20:05.861
  • and you were notcomplaining, but I was.
  • 00:20:05.861 --> 00:20:09.698
  • And so I found myselfcomplaining about everything,
  • 00:20:09.698 --> 00:20:13.268
  • whether it was traffic.
  • 00:20:13.268 --> 00:20:16.305
  • Just like everything.
  • 00:20:17.706 --> 00:20:19.741
  • And so I had to disciplinemyself to instead of complaining
  • 00:20:19.741 --> 00:20:23.612
  • about a situation,
  • 00:20:23.612 --> 00:20:25.080
  • how can I give thanks in it.
  • 00:20:26.515 --> 00:20:27.783
  • And here's the mostrecent one I did.
  • 00:20:27.783 --> 00:20:29.751
  • I said, because I wasgetting so annoyed,
  • 00:20:29.751 --> 00:20:32.054
  • at this whole mask wearingthing, it's annoying.
  • 00:20:32.054 --> 00:20:35.057
  • But then I want, you know what?
  • 00:20:35.057 --> 00:20:36.558
  • I'm grateful for themask I'm wearing,
  • 00:20:36.558 --> 00:20:39.995
  • because it means I don'thave to pay attention
  • 00:20:39.995 --> 00:20:41.963
  • to my lipstick.(laughing)
  • 00:20:41.963 --> 00:20:45.200
  • So it's just likefinding something, right?
  • 00:20:45.200 --> 00:20:49.471
  • Because otherwise we end upjust complaining about stuff,
  • 00:20:49.471 --> 00:20:52.941
  • and I think Davidsaid in Psalms 77,
  • 00:20:54.242 --> 00:20:57.779
  • he said, I complained andmy spirit was overwhelmed.
  • 00:20:57.779 --> 00:21:00.782
  • So maybe the reason we'restuck and overwhelmed
  • 00:21:00.782 --> 00:21:02.751
  • is because we're sobusy complaining.
  • 00:21:02.751 --> 00:21:04.319
  • So anyway, just some practicalthings that we can do.
  • 00:21:04.319 --> 00:21:07.456
  • One of them, like CeCe said,is remember who God is.
  • 00:21:07.456 --> 00:21:10.592
  • Let's worship him, we canworship him no matter what.
  • 00:21:10.592 --> 00:21:13.061
  • And then I would just say inall circumstances, give thanks.
  • 00:21:13.061 --> 00:21:16.298
  • What is something you canbe thankful for today?
  • 00:21:16.298 --> 00:21:18.800
  • Anyway, just a thought.
  • 00:21:18.800 --> 00:21:19.901
  • - So good.
  • 00:21:19.901 --> 00:21:21.169
  • - You know, that'sso good, Holly,
  • 00:21:21.169 --> 00:21:22.771
  • because I think thatthankfulness stabilizes us.
  • 00:21:22.771 --> 00:21:26.641
  • It takes our eyesoff what's wrong,
  • 00:21:26.641 --> 00:21:28.844
  • and puts our eyeson what's right.
  • 00:21:28.844 --> 00:21:31.413
  • And that gives usstability in God.
  • 00:21:31.413 --> 00:21:34.015
  • And there's going to alwaysbe things that are wrong.
  • 00:21:34.015 --> 00:21:36.885
  • It takes no faithto see what's wrong.
  • 00:21:36.885 --> 00:21:39.688
  • It takes faith tosee what's right.
  • 00:21:39.688 --> 00:21:42.257
  • And so I think that'swhy God says, praise me.
  • 00:21:42.257 --> 00:21:45.160
  • He said, send thepraisers out front,
  • 00:21:45.160 --> 00:21:48.263
  • praise me before the victory,
  • 00:21:48.263 --> 00:21:51.066
  • because it's astabilizing force.
  • 00:21:51.066 --> 00:21:53.502
  • Praise and thankfulnessis a stabilizing force.
  • 00:21:53.502 --> 00:21:56.571
  • And when you think about servingGod or living in this life,
  • 00:21:56.571 --> 00:22:00.642
  • it's always changing, it'sevolving and it's moving.
  • 00:22:00.642 --> 00:22:03.578
  • That's what life does,it grows and it changes.
  • 00:22:03.578 --> 00:22:07.048
  • When I think about that, Ihave to be not only stable,
  • 00:22:07.048 --> 00:22:11.119
  • but I have to be readyfor the next thing.
  • 00:22:11.119 --> 00:22:13.822
  • And I think about thescripture where God says,
  • 00:22:13.822 --> 00:22:16.324
  • I'm doing a new thing,can you not perceive it?
  • 00:22:16.324 --> 00:22:20.662
  • Sometimes we are justlooking to continued
  • 00:22:20.662 --> 00:22:25.300
  • to do the old thing,
  • 00:22:25.300 --> 00:22:26.601
  • but God really wants toshow us some new things.
  • 00:22:26.601 --> 00:22:29.304
  • Just because something'snot going right,
  • 00:22:29.304 --> 00:22:31.239
  • doesn't mean something is wrong.
  • 00:22:31.239 --> 00:22:33.141
  • Think about it.
  • 00:22:33.141 --> 00:22:34.609
  • God may be transitioning youto a new place, to a new thing.
  • 00:22:34.609 --> 00:22:38.480
  • So if we'll stay stablein our thanksgiving,
  • 00:22:38.480 --> 00:22:42.117
  • and we'll begin to continue.
  • 00:22:42.117 --> 00:22:43.819
  • We'll begin to see what'sright and not what's wrong.
  • 00:22:43.819 --> 00:22:46.455
  • I think we'll have neweyes to see the new thing
  • 00:22:46.455 --> 00:22:48.623
  • that God wants todo in our life.
  • 00:22:48.623 --> 00:22:50.859
  • I know so many times Ihave to remind myself,
  • 00:22:50.859 --> 00:22:54.262
  • and I think life is justabout reminding yourself
  • 00:22:54.262 --> 00:22:56.665
  • of the things you knowto do, but you forget.
  • 00:22:56.665 --> 00:22:59.701
  • The complaining.
  • 00:22:59.701 --> 00:23:00.802
  • You can complain, butdon't remain there,
  • 00:23:02.871 --> 00:23:05.207
  • go to the place of thankfulnessand remind yourself,
  • 00:23:05.207 --> 00:23:08.543
  • no, this is where I need to be.
  • 00:23:08.543 --> 00:23:10.412
  • And so if you're out theretoday and you're like,
  • 00:23:10.412 --> 00:23:12.581
  • oh yeah, I needto remind myself.
  • 00:23:12.581 --> 00:23:15.183
  • It's never too late.
  • 00:23:15.183 --> 00:23:17.152
  • It's never too late to remindyourself to be thankful.
  • 00:23:17.152 --> 00:23:20.222
  • You're evolving.God is with you.
  • 00:23:20.222 --> 00:23:22.524
  • He's helping you.
  • 00:23:22.524 --> 00:23:23.992
  • And right now I just feellike somebody saying,
  • 00:23:23.992 --> 00:23:25.760
  • help me right now God, tojust get all this in order.
  • 00:23:25.760 --> 00:23:29.197
  • And you know, as a team here,
  • 00:23:29.197 --> 00:23:30.665
  • and as a Better Togetherfamily, we want to pray for you.
  • 00:23:30.665 --> 00:23:34.102
  • So I'm going to prayfor you right now.
  • 00:23:34.102 --> 00:23:35.604
  • If that's your feeling,just look to God.
  • 00:23:35.604 --> 00:23:38.039
  • Father. I thank you thatyou're doing new things
  • 00:23:38.039 --> 00:23:40.442
  • in my sister's lives.
  • 00:23:40.442 --> 00:23:42.110
  • That father God,the old is gone,
  • 00:23:42.110 --> 00:23:44.412
  • and behold the new has come.
  • 00:23:44.412 --> 00:23:46.281
  • Opportunity is here to loveyou in a fresh new way.
  • 00:23:46.281 --> 00:23:49.818
  • We thank you father, thatyou're in full control
  • 00:23:49.818 --> 00:23:52.354
  • of our lives and youwill never let us down.
  • 00:23:52.354 --> 00:23:55.190
  • Thank you, and it's inJesus' name we pray.
  • 00:23:55.190 --> 00:23:58.026
  • Amen.
  • 00:23:58.026 --> 00:23:59.094
  • - Amen.- Amen.
  • 00:23:59.094 --> 00:24:00.395
  • - Thank you, Jesus.
  • 00:24:00.395 --> 00:24:02.697
  • I often think ofa pressure cooker.
  • 00:24:03.999 --> 00:24:07.035
  • Sometimes we feel likewe're in a pressure,
  • 00:24:07.035 --> 00:24:09.271
  • and we're going toblow it at any moment.
  • 00:24:09.271 --> 00:24:11.773
  • And I think that's wherewe can just lift our hands,
  • 00:24:11.773 --> 00:24:16.778
  • and start worshiping.
  • 00:24:17.512 --> 00:24:18.446
  • And it's like that God pricks
  • 00:24:18.446 --> 00:24:20.982
  • that pressure cookerand all of a sudden,
  • 00:24:20.982 --> 00:24:24.519
  • all that steam and all that.
  • 00:24:24.519 --> 00:24:26.054
  • And we can relax and wecan rest in the presence
  • 00:24:26.054 --> 00:24:29.090
  • of the Lord.
  • 00:24:29.090 --> 00:24:30.358
  • You know, he didn't callus to a hard, hard life.
  • 00:24:30.358 --> 00:24:34.863
  • He called us to a life of rest,eternal life, a life of joy.
  • 00:24:36.264 --> 00:24:40.335
  • He said my kingdomis righteousness,
  • 00:24:41.536 --> 00:24:42.971
  • it's peace and it's joy.
  • 00:24:42.971 --> 00:24:45.173
  • And that's what we haveas children of God.
  • 00:24:45.173 --> 00:24:47.542
  • That is what weshould live every day
  • 00:24:47.542 --> 00:24:50.412
  • in his righteousness,peace and joy.
  • 00:24:50.412 --> 00:24:52.881
  • Whether you're atthe grocery store,
  • 00:24:52.881 --> 00:24:55.116
  • you're at Targetright now, whatever.
  • 00:24:55.116 --> 00:24:57.152

  • It can be to thatclerk standing there.
