Speaker 1 (01:59):
You think that.

Speaker 5 (02:02):
I sure will? Good morning everybody. You are listening to
the voice, Come on, come on, y'all dig me now.
One and only Steve Harvey got a radio show man.
Is God good to me? Unbelievable? Yeah, he is. And
I can only attribute it to one thing. It's just
been a turnaround in my life. It's been me finally

(02:25):
making decision to see what all God has for me,
but at the same time trying to be more God
want me to be instead of more of what I
want to be.

Speaker 1 (02:34):
That's the trade off.

Speaker 5 (02:35):
You know, you gotta do something now, you know you
know you want God's blessings, You got to be willing
to do something on his behalf. And I'm not saying
I got it right right now, because I'm just being
real with you.

Speaker 1 (02:48):
I don't.

Speaker 5 (02:49):
I don't have it all together by any stretch of imagination.
I'm trying to get better in several areas. I'm praying
about it, I'm working on it. But you know, it's
a process, and I've grown to accept the process. But
I'm improving in a lot of areas from day to day.
But I'll tell you what, Man, my success, all that's

(03:09):
going on with me, I can only attribute to this turnaround.
And the turnaround was simple. I turned around and started
looking at God. That was a simple move.

Speaker 1 (03:20):
Man.

Speaker 5 (03:21):
I just turned around and started looking at him, and
I was going, Okay, I get it. Now, you created me.
You're the creator. You have a purpose for me. I
understand that.

Speaker 1 (03:31):
Now.

Speaker 5 (03:32):
Now let me just walk in that purpose and let
me get to doing that purpose. Now, my purpose and
your purpose and their purpose and anybody's purpose could be different,
and the way you go about the purpose can be different.

Speaker 1 (03:48):
And that's the part that I've really grown up to.

Speaker 5 (03:51):
I've opened up my mind to understanding that everybody's different,
nobody's quite the same, and that is not my right
or position to judge, but to be of a forgiving
spirit and understand and forgive those as I ask God
to forgive me.

Speaker 1 (04:07):
See, that's the key. That's the key, y'all.

Speaker 5 (04:11):
So when you're out here and you stuck on this unforgiveness,
understand in the large Prayer as a segment that says,
forgive us our trustpasses, as we forgive those who trustpass
against us. There's another version says forgive us our debts
as we forgive our debtors. It's two different versions, but

(04:31):
either one it means the exact same thing. It means
simply this, that you are asking God to forgive yours
like you forgive others. Forgive us our trust passes as
we forgive those who trustpass against us. When I cross
the line with you, God handle me the way I

(04:53):
handle people when they cross the line with me. You
feel what I'm saying to you, See, you understand that.
That's the breakdown of it. Best way I can give
it to you. Forgive us our trustpasses as we forgive
those who trustpass against us. Forgive me God for stepping
over the line, like I forgive those that step over
the line on me. That's the hard part, man, That's

(05:15):
the part man I've really been working on. I've been
really trying to get that together. And so I've learned
forgiveness a lot better over the past five years than
I have before, and it's paid off. I can't tell
you how it's paid off, because now God's mercy and
grace is all over me, because I've learned to become

(05:37):
more graceful.

Speaker 1 (05:39):
Now I ain't graceful like him. I ain't merciful like him,
but I've learned to become more more graceful, more merciful,
because man, I can't live my life like that. I
just got sick of me.

Speaker 5 (05:52):
Man, you mad at me now I'm mad at you.
You hate on me, Now I'm monna hate on you.
I ain't got time for that. Man, I've got you.
Look here, you got somewhere to go. Hate take up time.
It's time consuming.

Speaker 1 (06:06):
Hating.

Speaker 5 (06:08):
Trying to seek revenge just time consuming. It take up
way too much of your time to seek revenge when
vengeance ain't really yours. That's another one. Vengeance is mine,
saith the Lord. It ain't yours. So now when you
go to seek it to take it out, guess what
you're doing. You're doing something now, man. Now you off

(06:28):
in the area that you got no business being in,
and instead of steady climbing your letterer like you're supposed to.

Speaker 1 (06:35):
You don't take out time for vengeance to hate.

Speaker 5 (06:39):
I'm a hater. I'm a be a blogger. I'm a
blog about so and so. When you're blogging about somebody,
and most of these people you don't even know when
you're blogging about somebody, what you're doing, what you hating.

Speaker 1 (06:54):
It takes time to hate. Man.

Speaker 5 (06:57):
I just decided, Man, I got to take all my
time and instead of doing time and being active, I
got to be proactive. See some people get that confused,
being active and being proactive. Pro is positive. Pro means
to move forward. You know, if you put pro in

(07:18):
front of most words, it's a positive influence.

Speaker 1 (07:21):
You know, there's the pros and the cons.

Speaker 5 (07:24):
The pros is the good side, the cons is what
can go wrong, the bad side.

Speaker 1 (07:29):
You know, if you're active, that's one thing.

Speaker 5 (07:32):
But if you proactive, you're going forward in a positive direction.
When you become a pro that means you the best
of the best at whatever it is you chosen to be.
I'm a pro so somehow, and I know English teacher,
grammatical god. The word pro a lot of times when

(07:53):
you put it in front of something means positiveness. So
now a lot of people think that if you just act,
if something had to happen, Well, I'm doing something. And
that's what happens. Man, We just find ourselves doing a
lot of busy work that really ain't about nothing and
ain't going nowhere. It ain't got no direction or no
purpose because we haven't tried to find out the direction

(08:13):
of a purpose. So you wake up and your wheels
are spinning. You a hamster on a treadmill. You're running
real fast, but you're just going in the same spot.
You understand, that's cause you just out here being active
instead of proactive.

Speaker 1 (08:27):
Why don't you get God in your life?

Speaker 5 (08:28):
Why don't you turn and face your creator and find
out how to become more proactive so you can do things.

Speaker 1 (08:35):
To move yourself forward.

Speaker 5 (08:37):
How you can get your life off the ground and
get off the treadmill and really get it rolling in
the direction that it needs to be going. Man, I'm
telling you, God can make that change for you if
he see you making the change for him. See the
whole key, man, the whole key is you got to
be willing to do something. You got to give God

(08:58):
something to bless bless me. God, And then you go
sit on your couch and you ain't trying. Okay, bless
me God with what what.

Speaker 1 (09:08):
Are you working with? He can't have the people hire
you if you ain't put the app in.

Speaker 5 (09:13):
Come on, man, the blessing comes when you make a
proactive step, when you try to do something on the
positive side. Look, man, I'm gonna quit messing around with
all these people. I'm gonna start going home. I'm gonna
leave these women alone out here. You got to say,
all right, man, I ain't going.

Speaker 1 (09:30):
Over there tonight.

Speaker 5 (09:31):
I just ain't gonna get then God can work with you.
God help me stop seeing all these women. But you
steady going over there calling them setting up stuff. We
can't nobody help you because once you get over there,
you already know. See, you gotta get proactive. You gotta
do something yourself. You make one step, he'll make two.

(09:53):
That's the key man. So come on, y'all, you're listening
