prove you don't need me let's have a man making contest the old requirement is you have to make men out of dirt the scientists said great and he quickly reached to pick up a handful of dark god said not so fast google hold up your bible say it like you mean it this is my bible i am what it says i am i have what it says i have i can do what it says i can do today i will be taught the word of god i confess my mind is alert heart is receptive i will never be the same jesus name bless you i want to talk to you today about there's another ingredient coming we all face disappointments in life and generations that we don't understand easy to get discouraged and think what that happened to me what did that betray me why did get laid off
why wasn't i raised in a good childhood like usual no life is not always fair but god is fair he said in romans a all things working other for good did those that the law the key word is together you cannot isolate one part of your life one divorce one bed i heard one disappointment in itself may not be good but god is not finished your is not over because you had a bad break don't get duck where you are theirs or ingredient coming that means the right people ride opportunities are in your future if you'll get your passion back in start in forward you'll see what god promised it will all i'll come together and work out for you good when our children were small one of their favorite things to do was made chocolate chip cookies
we have done it so much we didn't even have to look at the recipe we knew exactly what to putty jonathan five or six years old he would the brown sugar the butter the eggs little alexander just three years old she'd get the flower bacon soda than we were very precise put in the exact amount in the exact order it was called for one time that halfway through making a batch of cookies are realised that we didn't have any bacon so how do you feel like went up to the store so we decided to not put the bacon so the n i thought no big deal just teaspoon we put two and a half a flower what difference was a teaspoonful going to me but when we took the cook out of the oven they were is flat ass could be had not risen one bit totally tasteless what was the problem an ingredient was left
a small amount made a huge difference people are bitter own life because they haven't waited for all the ingredients to come together god is the mastership the rest people your life has already been established the scripture talks about how his has planned your days for good from beginning to end god knows exactly what to add in wine have it he's up on like i did and leave out potent ingredient he's going to put in just the right amount at just the right time you can become everything he's created you debate but sometimes in life it may feel like things or flat flattened your career flat your marriage flat you'll find answers but don't get discouraged there's a their ingredient coming all god has to do is add some of his bacon soda and you will rise to a new level
you may have seen the chef on television ship emerald he's very animated whenever he adds an ingredient he says ban just imagine at the right time god ban ads a favour to your lie not flat anymore things begin to take all ban a good break bam i healy your lonely that person left to ban a divine connection somebody better your child's of course they do all i don't know what i did wrong arrays dim in church i just don't understand it now didn't do anything wrong relax there's a ban come god knows how to get him on the right course he's not going this in the period at the right time god what at just the right ingredients that will cause him to rise and fulfil his god given destiny but you but i'm expecting some bans listen you have not seen your best eggs you have not reached to a full potential
god has ingredients come in your way that will thrust you to a new level he has ingredients that are good you called everything to make sense when god brings it all together and you see the fullness of what he was doing i'm gonna worry about who hurt you what you lost how unfair it was you going to look back and say wow god you're amazing you had it all figured out your plan was better than my plan you gave me beauty for ashes you made a way when i didn't see a way you had the right people show up at just the right time why don't you trust him you may not understand something right now but one day you will it's going to all come together the mistake we made too often is we isolate one incident and it causes just to lose our passion i haven't they tell me recently how
her husband of many years left her for another woman she was so devastating she couldn't you're standing now no that's hard that's painful but that is not the end person leaving was going to keep you from your destiny god would have never allowed it this be hard to swallow but it failed do you didn't need there if they walked away they want a part of your destiny there's another ingredient common somebody better somebody that god ordained somebody that will treat you like a queen or a king somebody that will value you celebrate to somebody that cannot live without you something called the gift of good bye
then maybe they marry faith they did you harm but they're doing you a favor blow them a kiss no never look back just keep moving home now some of you you gotta quit mourning over what you ve lost could be scorers over what didn't work out it's not over until god says it all i heard somebody say go always ends on all is well so we ve all is not well in your life that simply means it is not the end moving forward another ingredient is coming along times like this lady people southward alive because they can understand why something has happened but every thing is not going to make sense if you isolated if you look at it don't its own you'll get discouraged have to remind your sale it is not yet all come together it's not so was to make sent by itself event
in my children when they were smaller wanted to make chocolate chip cookies but we didn't have time to bake them so i the ingredients out and gave them a jonathan to eat separately jonathan here's copper brown sugar eat this why now down with this tablespoon of the nebula the raw when you with that here's two cups of flour ok here two sticks of butter now jonathan you officially have chocolate chip cookies on the inside somehow don't work that way key is it has all be mixed together in the same way you cannot isolate one party or lie and thank all this taste bad and withdrew a divorce had a lousy childhood i start business that failed i like a year chemotherapy look what i've been through that's not supposed to taste good by its sale you gonna wait forgot to bring it all together
got another ingredients then he's going to add to your lie that person left you that's painful that bitter on its own but when god brings it all together and brings you somebody greater than you ever dreamed of you're not even gonna miss that old goat that left you all the bitterness will be gone just a matter of time before it comes together the port lied about you tried to ruin your reputation by sell that taste ban but that's only one ingredient god it was how vindicate you god knows how to make wrongs right he can prepare a table before you in the presence of your enemies when it comes together and promoted live in your dreams fulfilling your destiny it we'll take care when facing that sickness maybe having to take the treatments easy to think man
god's not even concerned about may look what i'm going through no god has you in the palm of his hand he said no weapon formed begin shoe will prosper weeping endure for a night here's the promised joy is coming in the morning god is saying it may get tough you may some situations that are better but if you stay in faith and not let the bitterness get on the inside gods not at a loss i have another ingredient they can turn bitter into sweet several years after victorian out we're married we receive an unexpected tax bill in the mail them and that was doing our tax returns lived in another state he was familiar with a certain tax law in texas now we thousands and thousands of dollars to make matters worse over a half what we owed were in penalties
this is not fair howard of professional he messed up now having to pay for his mistakes we were discouraged a young couple in real time to save money for a down payment on a home this was going to take all of our funds we finding this man to help us get it straightened out he was attacks attorney for several weeks he was at our house every night goin the documents filling out new forms we dinner together renee together we ended becoming very good friend ten years later i was working the television department here at lake would a man so mabel poor service into your my cousin has a construction permit for the last full power commercial television station in houston he'd like you to be a part of it as you know a tv station in a major market is extremely valuable i don't know start
i was young i thought i don't know about negotiating a contract for a tv station it dawned on me i'll call market only for it the one during my tax problems in three he handed us a contract the station was ours we put it the air vincent my father went to be with the lord now was the past three years later we acquired compact sinner this place we found it was going to cost about a hundred million dollars to renovate so we decided to sell the television station we sold it for a huge profit it was though funds that were instrumental in us debating this plight what i want you to see is when all comes together it'll make sense that text problem on its own was very bitter it didn't seem fair but it had i not head that problem
we have never met the attorney in become good friends without the attorney would probably never pursued the tv station with that the television station we may i have been able to renovate this facility lack we really wanted to prince god knows what he's doing he's got it all figured out in lie you will fail situations that don't make sense on the wrong it seems bitter you may like i d gone it's not fair why is this happening let me assure you got here the plan there's another ingredient coming somewhere down the road in a month in a year in twenty years you're going to see god work at all for your good new face these situations that don't make sense its very powerful new say god i don't understand it but i trust you it doesn't seem fair but i know you are fair i'm not going to
better i'm not gonna lose my passion i'm all keep pressing forward no you are in complete control here's what i've learned nothing in lie happens to you it happen for you god wouldn't have allowed it if he didn't have a purpose if that person the left if that bad break if that sick we're going to keep you from your destiny god would have never permitted the inn it is not in control of your life god is in control the inn you can't even touch you without asking god for permission keep the right perspective data getting better discouraged no our attitude should be this is not here and to me it's happening for me god said he is going to take met from my harmed and use it to my advantage it may be bitter right now but i know a secret ingredient is coming i heard about a man that was out in his boat and a big stick
we came up and his boat capsized ended up stranded on a deserted island month that month went by he was so miserable all by himself just when he thought it couldn't get any worse we will gathering food one day he came back and the little thatched roof that he bill had caught on fire sat there in watched it burned to the ground it was poland salt in the wounds he said god i give up i ask it help me in one bad thing after another happened by that time hey look way off in the distance he saw come into warning he picked up it got closer and closer sure enough it was the coastguard came in rescued him he was so thrill got on the dave ever body a big hug said the captain how in the world did you find me the captain said
we saw the smoke from the fire that you build sometimes what we think is a disappointment is god simply getting us in position to go to a new level i didn't like the tax problem but i shall do like being in the compact syn when you're cuts on fire if you had ever gets all far keep the right perspective don't start complaining god wouldn't have allowed it unless he had a purpose meda makes sense right now one day when it comes together it will make sense in the scripture there's a lady name naomi her name means my joy every time someone said hello naomi they were so hello my joy good morning naomi good morning my joy to be a very happy joyful person
