VOICE OF THE DAY ( DEFINITION OF SUCCESS)
Trevor Dwyer Jr.
 My name is Trevor Dwyer and for me, success didn’t come easy. In today’s service, my pastor made a statement that absolutely in my opinion hit the nail on the head about success. He said, “In order to succeed, you have to fail”. This statement hit me and was so powerful because, in order to be viewed as or to be put in the category of being successful, you have had to have overcame or accomplished a goal that had been set forth. The two verbs overcoming and accomplishing makes it translucent to us, or reveals to us, that there are trials and tests put infront of these goals needed to be accomplished or overcame first in order for you to reach them . As you all may know from personal experiences, trials and test are not always easy tasks to accomplish. This is what makes us so vounerable to failure. But at times, failure is not always bad. Failure can actually be an oppurtunity for a person to recognize and idenity flaws or mistakes which prevents success. This is why whenever I  failed at something I always looked at where I went wrong and used that to my advantage. For example, as a Freshman in the Urban Assembly School for Law and Justice, I noticed my grades where average which never matched my potential. I took the time out to identify my flaws by meeting with my teachers to see where I went wrong and how I could do better. After doing so, I found myself at my school’s award ceremony recieving the cum laude award 2 years in a row for having a 90 average. I was glad I took the initiative to go to my teachers because it led to the teachers developing a strong respect for me which also opened a wider range of oppurtunites. For example, I was offered the oppurtunity to become Presient of my school’s Young Men’s Association, I was reccomended for a school year internship to Cravath Academy at Cravath Swain and Moore’s lawfirm, I was elected into my school’s student council and, I got accepted to take Advance Placement classes in my school. Even though I can be comfortable at this level, success always has room to grow. With that being said, never be comfortable at the place you are. Remember, in the end, success will make you live a comfortable and wealthy life in the future. It just takes hardwork, determination and commitment. With that being said, don’t get discouraged at failing, work to your full potential in school and never be satisfied and where you are, always strive for the best.

The world says, ‘This is love.’

But GOD says, ‘THIS is love.’

Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. (1 Corinthians 13:6-8)

Just because lips have met doesn’t mean hearts have joined. (I Kissed Dating Goodbye)

God doesn’t focus on your past, he’s more focused on the present and your future <3

God doesn’t focus on your past, he’s more focused on the present and your future <3

An Atheist Professor of Philosophy was speaking to his Class on the problem Science has with God. He asked one of his new Christian students to stand.

Professor: You are a Christian, aren’t you, son?

Student: Yes, sir.

Professor: So, you believe in God?

Student: Absolutely, sir.

Professor: Is God good?

Student: Sure.

Professor: My brother died of cancer, even though he prayed to God to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But God didn’t. How is God good, then? Hmm?

(Student was silent)

Professor: You can’t answer, can you? Let’s start again, young fella. Is God good?

Student: Yes.

Professor: Is Satan good?

Student: No.

Professor: Where does Satan come from?

Student: From.. God.

Professor: That’s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?

Student: Yes.

Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn’t it? And God did make everything. Correct?

Student: Yes.

Professor: So who created evil?

(Student didn’t answer)

Professor: Is there sickness? Immortality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don’t they?

Student: Yes, sir.

Professor: So, who created them?

(Student had no answer)

Professor: Science says you have 5 senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son.. have you ever seen God?

Student: No, sir.

Professor: Tell us if you have ever heard your God.

Student: No, sir.

Professor: Have you ever felt your God, tasted your God, smelt your God? Have you ever had any sensory perception of God, for that matter?

Student: No, sir. I’m afraid I haven’t.

Professor: Yet you still believe in Him?

Student: Yes.

Professor: According to empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, Science says your God doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?

Student: Nothing. I only have my Faith.

Professor: Yes, Faith. And that is the problem Science has.

Student: Professor, is there such a thing as Heat?

Professor: Yes.

Student: And is there such a thing as Cold?

Professor: Yes.

Student: No, sir, there isn’t.

(The Lecture Theatre became very quiet with this turn of events)

Student: Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don’t have anything called cold. We can hit 458 Degrees below Zero which is no heat, but we can’t go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of Heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.

(There was a pon-drop silence in the Lecture Theatre)

Student: What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?

Professor: Yes. What is night if there isn’t darkness?

Student: You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have Low Light, Normal Light, Bright Light, Flashing Light… But if you have No Light constantly, you have nothing and it’s called Darkness, isn’t it? In reality, darkness isn’t. If it is, You would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you?

Professor: So what is the point you are making, young man?

Student: Sir, my point is, your Philosophical Premise is flawed.

Professor: Flawed? Can you explain how?

Student: Sir, you are working on the Premise of Duality. You argue there is Life and then there is Death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can’t even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?

Professor: If you are referring to the Natural Evolutionary Process, yes of course, I do.

Student: Have you ever observed Evolution with your own eyes, sir?

(The professor shook his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument was going)

Student: Since no one has ever observed the Process of Evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a Scientist but a Preacher?

(The class was in uproar)

Student: Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor’s brain?

(The class broke out into laughter)

Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor’s brain, felt it, touched or smelt it? .. No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established Rules of Empirical, Stable and Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures?

(The room was silent. The Professor stared at the student, his face unfathomable)

Professor: I guess you’ll have to take them on Faith, son.

Student: That is it, sir.. exactly! The link between man and God is Faith. That is all that keeps things alive and moving!

The student's name was Albert Einstein. Brilliant.
