  • 00:13:09.935 --> 00:13:11.103
  • HOW, IN THOSE MOMENTS, WE CANFEEL SO HOPELESS THAT GOD IS
  • 00:13:11.103 --> 00:13:13.772
  • FEEL SO HOPELESS THAT GOD ISDOING SOMETHING.
  • 00:13:13.772 --> 00:13:15.407
  • DOING SOMETHING.AND, LIKE YOU SAID, I THINK
  • 00:13:15.407 --> 00:13:17.142
  • AND, LIKE YOU SAID, I THINKWHAT WE NEED TO ALL REALIZE IS:
  • 00:13:17.142 --> 00:13:17.977
  • WHAT WE NEED TO ALL REALIZE IS:TODAY IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS
  • 00:13:17.977 --> 00:13:19.411
  • TODAY IS JUST AS IMPORTANT ASTOMORROW.
  • 00:13:19.411 --> 00:13:20.279
  • TOMORROW.AND, WE'RE NOT EVEN PROMISED
  • 00:13:20.279 --> 00:13:21.146
  • AND, WE'RE NOT EVEN PROMISEDTOMORROW.
  • 00:13:21.146 --> 00:13:21.780
  • TOMORROW.AND SO, WE NEED TO BE FAITHFUL
  • 00:13:21.780 --> 00:13:23.182
  • AND SO, WE NEED TO BE FAITHFULWITH TODAY.
  • 00:13:23.182 --> 00:13:24.483
  • WITH TODAY.AND, IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THE
  • 00:13:24.483 --> 00:13:25.017
  • AND, IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THEBIG AND THE GLAMOROUS.
  • 00:13:25.017 --> 00:13:25.951
  • BIG AND THE GLAMOROUS.IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE WHAT YOU
  • 00:13:25.951 --> 00:13:26.852
  • IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE WHAT YOUTHOUGHT.
  • 00:13:26.852 --> 00:13:27.786
  • THOUGHT.IT'S NOT A DESTINATION.
  • 00:13:27.786 --> 00:13:28.687
  • IT'S NOT A DESTINATION.YOUR CALLING ISN'T A
  • 00:13:28.687 --> 00:13:29.822
  • YOUR CALLING ISN'T ADESTINATION.
  • 00:13:29.822 --> 00:13:30.489

  • IT'S A JOURNEY, IT'S A PROCESS,AND EVERY DAY MATTERS.
  • 00:13:32.024 --> 00:13:33.859
  • AND EVERY DAY MATTERS.AND SO, I THINK, EVEN FOR ME IN
  • 00:13:33.859 --> 00:13:35.661
  • AND SO, I THINK, EVEN FOR ME INTHESE SEASONS, I THINK WE'RE
  • 00:13:35.661 --> 00:13:36.862
  • THESE SEASONS, I THINK WE'RELEARNING, "ARE YOU GONNA BE
