  • to feed the nest, he used Mosesto break the nests.
  • 00:06:24.300 --> 00:06:32.809
  • God said I've used Mosesto break that nest, I told

  • If I wanted to dress it up I'dsay a place that is challenging
  • 00:20:09.524 --> 00:20:14.463
  • for you, but I'm gonna break itdown and say your scary place;
  • 00:20:14.496 --> 00:20:19.268
  • the place that makes you wantto wet your pants, the place
  • 00:20:19.301 --> 00:20:24.606
  • they won't let you sleep goodat night, the place
  • 00:20:24.640 --> 00:20:28.110
  • of uncertainty and insecurity,that is the place where you find
  • 00:20:28.143 --> 00:20:37.953
  • your wings.
  • 00:20:37.986 --> 00:20:39.288
  • Not not hers, yours; not theirs,yours; not his, yours.
  • 00:20:39.321 --> 00:20:48.163
  • Whenever I was writing a book--sit with me just a second--
  • 00:20:48.196 --> 00:20:51.133
  • whenever I was writing the bookand I wanted the kids to be
  • 00:20:51.166 --> 00:20:54.903
  • quiet, just sit down, shut up,they do it for a while.
  • 00:20:54.936 --> 00:21:04.946
  • After a while they comedown the steps making noise
  • 00:21:07.215 --> 00:21:10.252
  • on purpose, tryin' to get yourattention, distract you
  • 00:21:10.285 --> 00:21:17.693
  • from what you writing.
  • 00:21:17.726 --> 00:21:20.062
  • I want them to go away so I tryto act like I didn't seem them,
  • 00:21:20.095 --> 00:21:26.668
  • after a while go, boo; they gorunning up and I'd have a few
  • 00:21:26.702 --> 00:21:33.875
  • more minutes of peace.
  • 00:21:33.909 --> 00:21:36.478
  • And then after a while here theycome down the steps again, I act
  • 00:21:36.511 --> 00:21:40.982
  • like I didn't see them, tryingto keep typing.
  • 00:21:41.016 --> 00:21:43.151
  • After a while they say,"Daddy, scare me again."
  • 00:21:43.185 --> 00:21:53.195
  • Daddy, scare me again, scare meagain, challenged me again,
  • 00:21:59.034 --> 00:22:09.044
  • scare me again, because when youput me in my wind,
  • 00:22:17.319 --> 00:22:27.329
  • I find my wings.
  • 00:22:30.665 --> 00:22:34.669
  • My wings only work in my wind,my wings don't work in my nest.
  • 00:22:34.703 --> 00:22:44.713
  • No matter how comfortable it mayappear to my flesh, I'll never
  • 00:22:48.383 --> 00:22:54.022
  • find out why I have this, whythese things are hanging on me,
  • 00:22:54.055 --> 00:23:01.396
  • I'll never know what they'refor, until you scare me again.
  • 00:23:01.430 --> 00:23:08.637
  • Even if I didn't get it rightthe first time and you had
  • 00:23:08.670 --> 00:23:12.774
  • to swoop down and catch me,don't put me back in that nest,
  • 00:23:12.808 --> 00:23:22.818
  • scare me again,don't give up on me.
  • 00:23:24.319 --> 00:23:29.224
  • I feel like I'm preachingto somebody, you have got wings,
  • 00:23:29.257 --> 00:23:39.267
  • I've got wings, all of God'schildren got wings, is just that
  • 00:23:41.670 --> 00:23:51.313
  • not all of God's children getin their wind.
  • 00:23:51.346 --> 00:23:59.554
  • God has lift it in your daysso you could get out of
  • 00:23:59.588 --> 00:24:04.759
  • your nest and get in your wind,in your I can't do it place,
  • 00:24:04.793 --> 00:24:14.803
  • I'm not good enough place,I don't have it place.
  • 00:24:15.303 --> 00:24:19.641
  • He said when you get in the windyou will discover.
  • 00:24:19.674 --> 00:24:29.084
  • I wanted to preach, he hadcalled me to preach, but I was
  • 00:24:29.117 --> 00:24:37.526
  • scared to talk in frontof people and that's a problem
  • 00:24:37.559 --> 00:24:42.330
  • if you're going to bea preacher.
  • 00:24:42.364 --> 00:24:49.204
  • So I had them adjustthe microphone so that
  • 00:24:49.237 --> 00:24:53.174
  • I wouldn't have to hold itand they see my hand shake and
  • 00:24:53.208 --> 00:24:56.878
  • I put my hands behind my back,and I walked up there and
  • 00:24:56.912 --> 00:25:00.482
  • I started talking in the mic'til my nerves calmed down,
  • 00:25:00.515 --> 00:25:05.787
  • and I could grab the microphone.
  • 00:25:05.820 --> 00:25:08.823
