  • 00:00:25.661 --> 00:00:27.196
  • and our conferenceand other conferences
  • 00:00:27.196 --> 00:00:30.099
  • and other conferenceslike this, and I know
  • 00:00:30.099 --> 00:00:33.869

  • what I'm supposed to do,but also know
  • 00:00:34.603 --> 00:00:35.671
  • but also knowwhen God deals with me
  • 00:00:35.671 --> 00:00:36.972
  • when God deals with mein an unusual way
  • 00:00:36.972 --> 00:00:40.676
  • in an unusual wayand He has about this service.
  • 00:00:40.676 --> 00:00:44.513

  • 00:00:48.050 --> 00:00:49.551
  • for a full life is mistakes.Mistakes are the price
  • 00:00:49.551 --> 00:00:50.586

  • I believe that hellwants to maim you
  • 00:01:00.195 --> 00:01:04.099
  • wants to maim youand mock you with your mistakes,
  • 00:01:04.099 --> 00:01:06.301
  • and mock you with your mistakes,but heaven wants to make you
  • 00:01:06.301 --> 00:01:08.370

  • and transform youby your mistakes.
  • 00:01:11.306 --> 00:01:13.008

  • 00:01:13.008 --> 00:01:14.877
  • Failure should not becomea prison house
  • 00:01:14.877 --> 00:01:16.512

  • 00:04:06.048 --> 00:04:07.683
  • you know pretty muchif we stayed away from sin,
  • 00:04:07.683 --> 00:04:09.718
  • if we stayed away from sin,sin for the most part --
  • 00:04:09.718 --> 00:04:10.752
  • sin for the most part --I mean, we were
  • 00:04:10.752 --> 00:04:11.420
  • I mean, we werealways tempted.
  • 00:04:11.420 --> 00:04:12.187
