Speaker 3 (02:05):
You're listening to the voice, Come on, dig me now,
one and only Steve Harvey got a radio show.

Speaker 1 (02:13):
Man o man o, man Wow.

Speaker 3 (02:16):
I think about all the things God has done for
me is overwhelming at times. And I want everybody to
have that feeling and to sharing that feeling of completion
and satisfaction. And the only reason I got this, and
it's the thousandth time I've said it, is because I
formed a relationship with my creator.

Speaker 1 (02:36):
Period.

Speaker 3 (02:37):
That's it. That's that's it. I can't tell you as
anything else else. You know, I've always had a strong
work ethic. My father put that in me. My father's
conversation with me growing up was always constantly about work hard,
don't be lazy, be a man, do what you say
You're gonna do YadA YadA, YadA, YadA YadA.

Speaker 2 (02:57):
Man.

Speaker 3 (02:57):
I was so tired of my father at times. I
was going, man, is with this dude right here? Man,
every time we have a conversation, it's got to be
about work. It's got to be about, you know, man,
doing your best, trying hard, you know, working and being honest,
do what you say you're gonna do.

Speaker 1 (03:14):
But that was his mission. I can't tell you how
much I appreciate that now.

Speaker 3 (03:20):
I can't even I can't even put it into words
when I think about my old man and what he
was to me, and I just, man, I'm so grateful
for that balance I had in my life. And then
my father was a fighter. He fought on the weekends.

Speaker 1 (03:39):
You know.

Speaker 3 (03:39):
My father used to come home with his with his
clothes toe off of him. He put a fresh shirt
on and he go back. My mom used to talk
about my father fighting all the time. Nick, while you
are always fighting. You know, a little bit of that
rubbed off on me too. You know that kind of
got into me. And I didn't understand that either, But
then I'm the same. My mother was a Sunday school

(04:01):
teacher for forty years, so her conversation was never about
fighting or anything. It was all about love and understanding
and doing another that you would have to do unto you.
My mom was a Sunday school teacher, so I learned
about faith. I had to go to Sunday school, prayer meeting,
Bible study, young people meeting, choir rehearsal. You know, I
was a church man so much. I was actually looking

(04:23):
as there's got to be an alternative to this, you know,
I want you know, And I was a little kid
even I was thinking at one point maybe I ought
to looking all because there's got to be something cooler
than this going on every day. It had got that
crazy for me. But the balance between those two people
created who I am today. And I want you to

(04:43):
understand that the things that you are in your past
have helped create who you are today. If you view
it the right way, everything that has happened to you
in your past has happened to you for a reason,
and it's usually for the good if you view it
that way. But if you, on the other hand, or

(05:07):
a type of person who can't move forward because you
are allowing your past to stop you from having your future,
then you, my friend, are doing a disservice to your life.
You are not honoring God's blessings. You are not taking
advantage of the gain, knowledge, wisdom, and experience of your life. Example,

(05:33):
if you are a woman and you are always talking
about a former relationship, what he did to me. If
he had not did this to me, I wouldn't be
in this place today. I thought I had a man.
Now I ain't got no man. Ah lah lah lah

(05:56):
la la if I you know, he came along and
I was doing just swell. He just came in and
he just lied to me. He lied to me, nod,
he did this to me. Then he cheated, then he left.
All of that that you're saying can very well be true.

(06:16):
Have you thought that maybe maybe somewhere in God's infinite wisdom,
that he knew that you had made a mistake in
picking him anyway? Maybe he knew you had made a
mistake in saying yes or I do to him anyway,

(06:38):
or come on move in?

Speaker 1 (06:41):
And so what he did was.

Speaker 3 (06:44):
Based on your decision now to say yes, I do
or come on, let's move in together.

Speaker 1 (06:50):
That was your decision. You ain't go to him about
this one.

Speaker 3 (06:54):
You made this decision based on that decision and all
the negative things that started happening.

Speaker 1 (07:01):
He allowed you to get away from it.

Speaker 3 (07:04):
Now how you got away from it, It's always not
the choice of ours. See, you stuck on the fact
that he left, that he walked out. But let me
share this with you. When he was there, how good
was he to you? How good was he for you? See,
you got to stare at you got to look at
the blessing.

Speaker 1 (07:25):
The blessing is.

Speaker 3 (07:26):
Now you are on your own. Now you walk in
your house. Ain't nobody in there with a disruptive spirit.

Speaker 1 (07:34):
Now you go home. You could take your clothes off,
walk around like you want to.

Speaker 3 (07:38):
Now you go home, you can sit down and look
at TV or catch your breath if you want to.
Your kids don't have to see y'all arguing all the time.
Have you looked at the blessing in it? But now
if you gonna keep looking at the negative, then guess what.
Now you can't move forward because you keep allowing your

(08:02):
past to keep you from moving forward. If God has
brought you through it, why don't you move on from it? Look,
you got through it, He gone, he ain't coming back.
He got somebody else. So you gonna sit there and
just keep tripping. Becauts he gone and he got somebody else. Hey,
pick yourself up. Thank God for the blessing. It didn't

(08:26):
feel like a blessing. Why you was going through it,
and all the pain of him leaving and the divorce
and all that messed you up? Got it when you
get through it all of that. You ain't the first
one being left. You ain't the first one being divorced.
You ain't the first one been in a bad relationship.
Pick yourself up, Thank God for the blessing, and move

(08:48):
forward in your life, because maybe when you quit complaining,
maybe you'll find out that God has something in store
for you that he wants you to have, but he
can't give it to you if you ain't grateful. So
God gives you a blessing, but because you don't see
it as a blessing, you ain't grateful for it. Now,
guess what, You steady asking God to do something for you,

(09:12):
but you ain't thanking him for what he's done for you,
but you steady wanting him to do more.

Speaker 1 (09:17):
How does that work? How does that work?

Speaker 3 (09:20):
Man?

Speaker 1 (09:20):
That He should keep on giving you things when you
ain't even working with the stuff he done gave you
and I don't know.

Speaker 3 (09:28):
And I'm just using that one example. It could go
for me and too, vice versa, and so on and
so forth. I'm just using that as an example. Now,
why I laid on that one so long? You have
to take that over God. That's all just set. I
ain't pointing fingers at nobody in nothing, because I've been
guilty on both sides of the coin.

Speaker 1 (09:47):
Who am I?

Speaker 3 (09:48):
But I'm just sharing with you what I had to do.
I had to learn to stop allowing my past to
interfere with my future

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK? For 60 years, we are still asking that question. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
