went there I recognize most of them together all my patients and all different denominations as God loves everyone and all denominations and at that time I shared the cry cross of Christ I believe our Seventh-day Adventist church is the right church the last big church is because we have the clearest understanding of the cross of you have felt guilty I asked it I told him about some of the guilt I felt in some of these instances you know how you feel when you get guilty is fishy to get caught up in a big heart pounding your sweating and a one time I was in my mother to work it was one hour away

we should buy poster or two draw you know what you have in the back of your lesson that was lesson the countries your subordinates will they draw that anyway so you tell me to go live by a possible as a young boy I I've seen people have and create never buy things at face value I decided saying in the political Hamilton sci-fi -ish and I just got dispute pennies saved that but I decided I think

remember it was sold our soul terrifying elderly to two sentence actually know that's only two things out of a committed my life but United think about it if you experience all the sins of your life at one point in time how would if you would have will help if you could get the feel every single person sent from Adam and the last person ever to live one point in time I thought I felt I had to do the music this is the Lord laid upon him the iniquity of us all of us who of us all and he was in excess John Jesus 's death every man I have fifty nine two your sins have separated your separated you and your God in island beautiful daughter is gay beautiful inside and outside but I didn't feel that way when she was born I really don't think any child born next year when she was born she had this strange looking shape your head her head was misshapen and I and dirty and did I become to cut the course I did and the I never really got a customer but my wife being very grateful was with her twenty four seven as she was always crying always and when she was about six month old when my wife said I need to go practice music at church so would you mind watching Shauna I said no problem this go-ahead as soon as she left she started crying she cried and cried and cried I just couldn't handle this I put in the car and I decide driving everywhere over the holiday role I wasn't driven at least three thousand miles on how much I throw she would not stop figure from others and I can handle this girl you know I realized the other kind that was the first time she was ever separated from other than a life and those only six months but because of our sins it was laid upon Christ it separated the father from his son they were never ever separated before in history of you for eternity before under the time that's why he sent by God my God why has thou forsaken his ivory to seven four fifty three C and with his fierce temptations wrong the heart of Jesus the senior could not see through the portals of the two hope did not present to him his coming forth from the great conqueror or telephone the father 's acceptance of the sacrifice in this time of agony with the same place upon it and he cannot see the father 's face he thought this was it and somebody said if thou be the son of God come down from the cross is I really seven forty nine Christ could have come down from the cross but it is because he was not save himself the center has hope apart and favor with God instead of coming down from the cross he lowered his head he died it was not a dry eye there and I said

emphasizing things reminded us number one no matter what spend time daily in prayer and Bible study every days been timely everyday number two purpose in life is when sold on a limb to Loma Linda medical school I spend one hour each day in prayer and Bible study and I volunteered to be the youth pastor for Olympic Korean Seventh-day Adventist church in LA which was about one hour drive from that was a possible four years throughout my medical school I experience God 's constant when it was time for my need to choose a residency I always thought that I would be in a surgical field is yet easy I majored in our chemistry math and art is a strange combination in fact I send most of my time in art I love the things in my hands but which surgical specialties it was very confusing for me by future reforming but I recall the fog story George Miller born eighteen oh five was an evangelist and careful more than ten thousand orphans in his life was a man of prayer and three and he had one day an important speaking engagement you said Captain I come to you that I must in Québec by Saturday the captain said it is impossible you know how it the fog is Mueller April five oh my eyes is not the density of the fall when the living God who controls every circumstance about after a simple prayer the fog was needless to say Mueller was in Québec on also wanted to have the fog lifted it was Sunday morning I told my wife that we need to pray earnestly for future she wasn't eleven issue was in the bedroom frame and I was in the living room seeking God 's direction suddenly AVA strong and overwhelming impression came to Suzy needs of the family practice what unfair that time you never even enter my mind I've never been the rotation about I think this is not a surgical field I thought to argue against conviction here with you that I do not feel like doing it that evening in the house reminded from the pen of inspiration and that her seven eighteen ninety two and oh I wrote faith and feeding are as distinct as a east from the West faith is not dependent on feeling we must honestly cry to God in faith feeding on the evening and then live our prayers are assurance and evidence is God 's word and after we had asked Loomis believe without doubt fell into my wife and told her that of your plaintiff out of practice program and the grad lab read it we have an amazing God you'll

another a positive from Yale with research background was another an internal medicine resident of Venice top of his class previous year and so on among the nine people interviewed out was by far in these qualified Oklahoman Ivy League school and I had no research background I told my wife who came it came with me they would take an act of God for me to get it there that day I got I got the word that Time Warner and I got accepted in either and later find out found out that Doctor Ford really really pushed and pleaded for me in Iran something about salvation that they it is not what you know but whom you know none of us are qualified to be saved but we have such an high priest who is set on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty of Heaven 's after finishing three years of the dermatology residency I decided to apply for fellowship and those are graphic skin cancer surgery so I consulted with my program director Doctor flowers said Arthur applied to Scripps clinic and

beautiful place in Mister the garden of the and he made his decision based on what this world offers for his temporal life is but even in Hebrews ten eleven finishes it would happen note for city
