Youth Worker On Fire Podcast

Oct 25, 2023

Here is a good place to emphasis this well known fact in great businesses and great ministries… What have you GIVEN UP to go to the NEXT LEVEL? What have you said NO to before saying YES to something better?

You will find here that Emelia Hartford (Record Breaking Car Builder & Driver, Actress, and Producer) had to give somethings up in order for Ferrari to help her! It was funny, but true! Ferrari won’t run without Ferrari parts. A Ferrari mechanic said, ”Yeah… Ferrari’s only work well with the parts they were designed with.” Aftermarket parts don’t work!

When Emelia pushed on the gas and asked for more power, it went into “limp mode”, because the parts it was designed for were not there and the car knew something was missing.

So what did Emelia Hartford have to give up? Listen to this podcast episode to find out!

We were made with a design that included God in our very being. Without Him there, we try to fill that hole with aftermarket parts. We don’t run correctly and nothing seems to quite right. Like the Ferrari, we were made to run fast and at full throttle!

Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. - Psalm 139:14 (NLT)
