Notes & Transcripts

I still remember being in college and being married and having to be a janitor. Every morning at 4 am, I had to get up, get ready, and be at work in Nashville at 6:00 a.m. I hated it, and even resented it. Other guys in school had jobs teaching or working in churches and here I had to get up and go clean commodes. I sometimes wondered why God was putting me through this. But I will have to tell you that I learned more about discpline, management and leadership in overseeing a clean up crew in that department store than I did in all the years that I have gone to college or seminary. There are things that God can only pour into your life when you suffer. What are you learning from?
