Speaker 5 (02:03):
Good morning everybody, y'all listening to the voice, Come on
dig me now one and on. Steve Harvey got a
radio show. Hell Man back in business too, Man Man,
how good is God? I mean, really, if you think
about it in spite of all that's going down in
your life. First of all, it could be worse. But secondly,

sometimes you have to remember. And I've just had to
have this conversation with myself this morning. That's how I'm
fresh on this one right here. When a challenge faces you,
are you going through a difficult moment, or you didn't
hit a bump in the road in the middle of that,
if you could manage to be grateful, it would take

you a long way. Gratitude is a powerful resource. If
you can be grateful in the.

Speaker 1 (02:52):
Middle of it.

Speaker 5 (02:54):
Gratitude is a powerful resource when it's dim for you.
And got a little bumpy on the road, and he
ran into some obstacles. And you done ran up into
some detooled signs and your journey ain't smooth as it was.

Speaker 1 (03:09):
Last week or last year.

Speaker 5 (03:12):
You gotta be grateful for the things that are going
right and that have gone right, and for the thing
that's wrong right now.

Speaker 1 (03:22):
To get right? Man? Can I share that with you?

Speaker 3 (03:25):

Speaker 1 (03:25):
Is that a tough one to learn? It is? For me.
It has been one of.

Speaker 5 (03:29):
My toughest challenges is to learn how to be grateful
because it's a powerful resource, but how to be grateful
in moments of despair when it ain't going right.

Speaker 1 (03:41):
See here's a mistake I would make.

Speaker 5 (03:43):
See when something go wrong, I want to focus on
the wrong so much in an attempt to fix it.
But even then the focus ain't always in to fix it.
The focus becomes, Man, this is bad, man, I can't
believe this is happening. Why just keep going down? That
doesn't fix anything? You know, mealing over it, going over

what's wrong, explaining it, sharing it with your friends, you know,
making it sound worse than it is. Tell the story
for pity from other people. All of that right there,
has nothing to do with the fix. Sometimes you're just
mulling over it. You're just making it worse. You're just
making it a bigger problem. You're manifesting it into your atmosphere,

You're putting it out there in your spirit. Now, all
of a sudden, it consumes your day. Next thing, you know,
you're having a bad day. If you're having a bad day,
it's because you've been having some bad thoughts. So what
I've had to learn how to do, and what I'm
working on this morning is I'm working on the situation
that then cropped up. I was going kind of smooth
here for a minute, and now then got real bumpy

in the road, you know, and all this here. So
what I'm thinking about now, though, is even though I've
hit a bump in the road, and even though I
done ran into a detour, and even though I've hit
this lull, I'm going down into a valley, I ain't
up on the peak. Can I not still be grateful
for all the things that God has given me, for

all the things He's done for me, for all the
things He's bought me through And realizing that even this
that's happening to me again is going to pass to
He gonna get me through that too. Come on, man,
God is a good god man. It's a lot to
be grateful for. So while I'm tripping on this bumping
the road out and here, what I gotta remember is

all the things He's done for me. And like I say,
my saying is join depression cannot reside in the same place.
So instead of being down about this new bumping the road,
if I'm constantly filling my mind with the thoughts of
how good He's been to me, of what all he's
done for me, of all the things he's brought me through,
of all the blessings he's presented me with. When I

go down that list, I really don't have a lot
of time to mull over the situation.

Speaker 1 (06:07):
Now. Do I have to fix this bump in the roll?
Of course I do.

Speaker 5 (06:11):
Are There's some things I'm going to have to do
to straighten it out, of course it is. But Steve
just going to get the business of doing it and
straighten it out. What you mulling over and worrying about
it for you know, old people. I heard old people
say something when I was growing up in the church.
They say, if you're gonna pray about it, don't worry
about it. But if you're gonna worry about it, don't
pray about it. That's an amazing thing. And prayer just

happens to be my weapon of choice. Now, it ain't
always been that way. I want you to understand that
My first weapon of choice was you do it to me,
I do it to you. You called me out, I
call you out. You say something bad about me. I've
tried to find you and say something bad about you.
That was my weapon in the past. How did that
work out for you, Steve? Not so good? Because you

know what, I spent a lot of time fighting back,
kicking back, swinging back, when I could have spent all
that time climbing. See, all you trying to do at
the end of the day, folks, is have a better
life than the one you got. All you trying to
do is to improve your position in life. You know,
it's not my business to make sure you don't get

where you going. I ain't got no time for that.
It's not my job to assure that you ain't as
high as me. I ain't got no time for that.
Your real mission and purpose is to have the best
life that you can have, to ascend to the highest
plateau that you can get to, to make your family
as comfortable as you can, to provide as much as

you can for your family. But legally, see, those of
us are sitting up here trying to come up with sideways.
You can ask a couple million men sitting in prison
today how they wish they hadn't have done that, and
they'll tell you, Oh, man, I wish I never had
did it. I knew not to go down there. Something
told me not to go down there.

Speaker 1 (08:00):
Man. If I could change things, I would.

Speaker 5 (08:02):
But they sitting somewhere doing some time that had they
made another decision they wouldn't have to do now. That
don't make them throw away people, nah, man, Because everybody
make mistakes, and God is in the forgiving business. And
some of us have done some things that really broke
the law, and a whole lot of other things and
deserve to do some time. But through the grace of God,

we didn't. But now we sit up here we pass
judgment on people who got to do some matter. I
don't care. I don't care what you've done. God can
forgive anything But our position, our motivation in life is
to try to have the best life we can have
and provide for those around us and make it comfortable.
If that's your ambition, you don't have time to worry

about or concern yourself with another person. And I wasted
time doing that, and that's not the way to get
it done. It's simply mine to your business. Taking care
of you and getting yourself right and tight is twenty
four sevens So that's a full time job. So what
I had to learn was and what I've the reason

I've chosen prayers as my weapon of choice now is
that now prayer helps me that I don't have to
fight back. Now, if I get cornered, I'm gonna fight you.
I ain't even gonna lie to you. And now I'm
still working on some things that trigger me. You know,
you know, you know, and and and and so I'm

I'm slowly getting better at that. But I've learned that
my weapon of choice is prayer now. So when it
happens ugly for me, I pray about it. When it
gets tight and dismal for me, I pray about it.
And the thing about prayer, man, is prayer changes things

yes it does. Now read about it and try it.
That's the deal, Okay, come on, prayer is a wonderful weapon.
