Dr. Danny Campbell
This young convert was deeply impressed and determined to make these the rules of his life. From that day onward throughout his life he made it a rule to spend the first moments of his day alone with God and God's Word. Before he read a letter, looked at a paper or even read a telegram, he went first to the Bible, that the first impression of the day might be what he got directly from God.

V. 22 The ________________________ Perspective on our Earthly Investments
Somebody said that it couldn’t be done, But, he with a chuckle replied
That "maybe it couldn’t," but he would be one, Who wouldn’t say so till he’d tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin; on his face, if he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing that couldn’t be done, and he did it.
Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you’ll never do that; At least no one has ever done it";
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat, And the first thing we knew he’d begun it.
With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin, Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn’t be done, and he did it.
There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done, There are thousands to prophesy failure;
There are thousands to point out to you one by one, The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle it in with a bit of a grin, Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start to sing as you tackle the thing That "couldn’t be done," and you’ll do it. –It Couldn’t Be Done by Edgar Guest
