We loss a great man of God today. I met him a few months after Katrina, he was concerned about me emotionally and spiritually after the disaster. We sat for a short time and he said, ” a long time ago I asked God to build a wall of fire around me so that I would not have to fight the devil, and I promised Him that with that unused energy that I’d promise to use it to build the Kingdom”. He was doing that! He suggested that I do the same, and assured me I’d be better than before. I did, and I am!
In Zig Ziglar’s world, the morning alarm rang on the “opportunity clock.” And “if you aren’t on fire” when you get to work, “then your wood is wet.” And you have to remember that “money’s not the most important thing in life, but it’s reasonably close to oxygen.” And there will be setbacks, but “failure is an event, not a person.”
