A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a new $20.00 bill.
In the room of 200, he asked, "Who would like this $20 bill?"
Hands started going up.
He said, "I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this.
He proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill. He then asked, "Who still wants it?"
Still the hands were up in the air.
Well, he replied, "What if I do this?" And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it
up, now crumpled and dirty. "Now, who still wants it?"
Still the hands went into the air.
My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson.
No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20.
 Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances
that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose
 Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who DO love you.
 The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but by God who loves us.
 You are special - Don't EVER forget it."
 Count your blessings, not your problems.
 And remember: Amateurs built the ark . . . Professionals built the Titanic.
 If God brings you to it - He will bring you through it.
In happy moments, praise God.
In difficult moments, seek God.
In quiet moments, worship God.
In Painful moments, trust God.
In every moment, thank God.
