Chaz Lamar Shepherd: Once you start understanding what life is all about, then you start getting excited about being used by God. You realize that's the only thing that could possibly matter about your life. I'd rather be used by God than work with Denzel Washington. Because this is God I'm talking about. You cannot lose by being in God.
