  • - THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:06:39.200 --> 00:06:41.090

  • WHEN I INTRODUCED YOU IN YOUR FILMS AND MOVIES.
  • 00:06:49.200 --> 00:06:51.020
  • WE ALL SEE THAT BUT IT DIDN'T START OFF LIKE
  • 00:06:51.040 --> 00:06:52.120
  • THAT FOR YOU.
  • 00:06:52.140 --> 00:06:54.150
  • YOU DIDN'T NECESSARILY COME FROM A
  • 00:06:54.170 --> 00:06:56.230
  • FUNCTIONAL FAMILY.
  • 00:06:56.250 --> 00:06:58.030
  • - NO.
  • 00:06:58.050 --> 00:06:59.140
  • - AND I'D LIKE TO GO BACK AND YOU KNOW, I WAS
  • 00:06:59.160 --> 00:07:01.180
  • VERY MOVED WHEN WE DID THE INTERVIEW ON SERIUS
  • 00:07:01.200 --> 00:07:03.100
  • ABOUT HOW YOU GOT UNDERNEATH THE PORCH WHEN
  • 00:07:03.120 --> 00:07:05.240
  • YOU WERE A LITTLE BOY TO ESCAPE THE PAIN AND YOU
  • 00:07:05.260 --> 00:07:07.220
  • TOLD STORIES IN YOUR IMAGINATION.
  • 00:07:07.240 --> 00:07:09.230
  • CAN YOU SHARE A LITTLE BIT ABOUT
  • 00:07:09.250 --> 00:07:11.200
  • YOUR UPBRINGING?
  • 00:07:11.220 --> 00:07:13.110
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:07:13.130 --> 00:07:15.080
  • WELL, IT WAS A VERY VERY DIFFICULT TIME.
  • 00:07:15.100 --> 00:07:17.050
  • I WAS A CHILD THAT WAS BORN TO 2 WOUNDED
  • 00:07:17.070 --> 00:07:21.070
  • PARENTS, AND THEY WERE WOUNDED
  • 00:07:21.090 --> 00:07:22.230
  • CHILDREN THEMSELVES.
  • 00:07:22.250 --> 00:07:24.010
  • MY MOTHER WAS 17 AND MY FATHER WAS ABOUT 19 WHEN
  • 00:07:24.030 --> 00:07:25.270
  • THEY GOT MARRIED.
  • 00:07:25.290 --> 00:07:28.080
  • AND I CAME ALONG WHEN SHE WAS 24 YEARS OLD, AND
  • 00:07:28.100 --> 00:07:31.030
  • THERE WAS A LOT OF PAIN IN THE HOUSE.
  • 00:07:31.050 --> 00:07:33.200
  • THERE WAS A LOT OF ARGUMENTS.
  • 00:07:33.220 --> 00:07:35.130
  • HE WAS VERY PHYSICALLY AND VERBALLY ABUSIVE TO
  • 00:07:35.150 --> 00:07:37.080
  • THE BOTH OF US.
  • 00:07:37.100 --> 00:07:39.010
  • IT WAS REALLY A DIFFICULT AND VERY HARD TIME
  • 00:07:39.030 --> 00:07:41.070
  • SPECIALLY FOR A MAN CHILD.
  • 00:07:41.090 --> 00:07:43.240
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE FOR A LITTLE GIRL
  • 00:07:43.260 --> 00:07:45.210
  • BUT I'M SURE IT'S JUST AS PAINFUL, BUT FOR A BOY
  • 00:07:45.230 --> 00:07:47.230
  • CHILD, A MAN CHILD TO WATCH HIS MOTHER BEING
  • 00:07:47.250 --> 00:07:49.230
  • BEATEN AND BELITTLED IT WAS REALLY REALLY HARD.
  • 00:07:49.250 --> 00:07:51.170
  • SO I WENT UNDER THE HOUSE AND I BUILT THIS LITTLE,
  • 00:07:51.190 --> 00:07:54.040
  • PUT SOME WOOD UP IN BETWEEN SOME OF THE
  • 00:07:54.060 --> 00:07:56.020
  • PILLARS AND BUILT THIS LITTLE SAFE PLACE FOR ME,
  • 00:07:56.040 --> 00:07:59.000
  • AND I PAINTED IT ROBIN EGG BLUE.
  • 00:07:59.020 --> 00:08:01.270
  • I FOUND SOME PAINT SOMEWHERE, PAINTED IT BLUE.
  • 00:08:01.290 --> 00:08:03.230
  • AND I WOULD SIT IN THIS ROOM AND I WOULD LET MY
  • 00:08:03.250 --> 00:08:06.180
  • IMAGINATION TAKE ME TO OTHER PLACES.
  • 00:08:06.200 --> 00:08:09.000
  • I WOULD JUST BE SOMEWHERE RUNNING THROUGH GRASS AND
  • 00:08:09.020 --> 00:08:12.230
  • TREES WHILE I'M LISTENING TO ALL OF THE PAIN AND
  • 00:08:12.250 --> 00:08:15.220
  • ALL THE HEARTACHE UP ABOVE ME IN THE
  • 00:08:15.240 --> 00:08:17.140
  • FLOOR BOARDS.
  • 00:08:17.160 --> 00:08:18.290
  • SO IT WAS A VERY DIFFICULT TIME, BUT THE
  • 00:08:19.010 --> 00:08:20.240
  • BEAUTY IN THAT MOMENT, AND I SAY THIS TO PEOPLE
  • 00:08:20.260 --> 00:08:23.040
  • ALL THE TIME IS THAT I KNOW ALL THINGS WORKED
  • 00:08:23.060 --> 00:08:24.210
  • TOGETHER FOR YOUR GOOD.
  • 00:08:24.230 --> 00:08:26.260
  • WHEN I AM WRITING A SCRIPT OR A MOVIE OR FOR
  • 00:08:26.280 --> 00:08:28.190
  • HAVE AND HAVE NOTS OR IF LOVING YOU IS WRONG OR
  • 00:08:28.210 --> 00:08:32.100
  • WRITING MOVIES, IN MY IMAGINATION I GO TO A
  • 00:08:32.120 --> 00:08:37.040
  • PLACE WHERE I'M IN THAT WORLD, AND THAT WAS
  • 00:08:37.060 --> 00:08:39.050
  • FORMED AND BORN INSIDE OF ALL THAT PAIN.
  • 00:08:39.070 --> 00:08:41.130
  • SO THE LITTLE BOY'S IMAGINATION IS WHERE THE
  • 00:08:41.150 --> 00:08:43.280
  • MAN GOES NOW TO FEED HIS DREAM.
  • 00:08:44.000 --> 00:08:46.110
  • SO IT'S A BEAUTIFUL THING WHEN YOU KNOW THAT ALL
  • 00:08:46.130 --> 00:08:48.260
  • THINGS ARE GOING TO WORK TOGETHER FOR YOUR GOOD.
  • 00:08:48.280 --> 00:08:50.220

  • - SO WE'LL JUMP AROUND A LITTLE BUT TYLER, YOU
  • 00:08:55.260 --> 00:08:57.190
  • GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL, YOU HAD A DREAM
  • 00:08:57.210 --> 00:08:59.260
  • FOR THE PLAY BUT IT WASN'T EASY AND DOORS
  • 00:08:59.280 --> 00:09:01.280
  • DIDN'T NECESSARILY AND I LOVE THE THING ABOUT THE
  • 00:09:02.000 --> 00:09:04.020
  • HURRICANE AND SOUTH CAROLINA.
  • 00:09:04.040 --> 00:09:05.130
  • CAN YOU SHARE JUST SOME OF THAT?
  • 00:09:05.150 --> 00:09:06.250
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:09:06.270 --> 00:09:08.220
  • I STARTED DOING THIS PLAY AFTER WATCHING THE OPRAH
  • 00:09:08.240 --> 00:09:11.000
  • WIN FREE SHOW.
  • 00:09:11.020 --> 00:09:12.240
  • SHE SAID IT WAS CATHARTIC TO WRITE THINGS DOWN.
  • 00:09:12.260 --> 00:09:14.190
  • NOW, I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT CATHARTIC MEANT SO I HAD
  • 00:09:14.210 --> 00:09:16.030
  • TO GO FIND IN DICTIONARY.
  • 00:09:16.050 --> 00:09:17.250
  • I WENT AND FOUND A DICTIONARY AND I STARTED
  • 00:09:17.270 --> 00:09:19.120
  • WRITING THINGS DOWN IN THIS JOURNAL AND I WAS
  • 00:09:19.140 --> 00:09:21.030
  • USING DIFFERENT CHARACTERS NAMES BECAUSE
  • 00:09:21.050 --> 00:09:23.010
  • IF SOMEONE FOUND IT I DIDN'T WANT THEM TO KNOW
  • 00:09:23.030 --> 00:09:25.070
  • THAT I HAD BEEN THROUGH THE THINGS THAT I WAS
  • 00:09:25.090 --> 00:09:26.260
  • TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:09:26.280 --> 00:09:28.240
  • I WAS TALKING ABOUT ADULT SURVIVORS OF CHILD ABUSE
  • 00:09:28.260 --> 00:09:31.110
  • AT THE TIME.
  • 00:09:31.130 --> 00:09:33.240
  • SO IN 1993 OR SO I MOVED TO ATLANTA.
  • 00:09:33.260 --> 00:09:36.110
  • I MOVED IN '92.
  • 00:09:36.130 --> 00:09:38.000
  • IN 93 I DECIDED TO PUT THE PLAY UP, WORKED,
  • 00:09:38.020 --> 00:09:40.010
  • SAVED MONEY.
  • 00:09:40.030 --> 00:09:42.140
  • MY TAX RETURNS FROM H AND R BLOCK, DID EVERYTHING I
  • 00:09:42.160 --> 00:09:44.090
  • COULD TO PUT THIS SHOW UP, AND I SPENT
  • 00:09:44.110 --> 00:09:45.240
  • ALL MY MONEY.
  • 00:09:45.260 --> 00:09:47.060
  • IT WAS A 200 SEAT THEATER.
  • 00:09:47.080 --> 00:09:48.210
  • I THOUGHT WE'D DO ALL THESE DIFFERENT SHOWS
  • 00:09:48.230 --> 00:09:50.010
  • OVER THE WEEKEND, THAT 1200 PEOPLE WOULD
  • 00:09:50.030 --> 00:09:51.070
  • SHOW UP AND ONLY 30 DID.
  • 00:09:51.090 --> 00:09:52.150
  • SO I LOST EVERYTHING I HAD.
  • 00:09:52.170 --> 00:09:53.240
  • MY CAR PAYMENT, EVERYTHING WAS TIDE TIED
  • 00:09:53.260 --> 00:09:55.080
  • UP IN IT, AND IT WAS A VERY VERY DIFFICULT TIME
  • 00:09:55.100 --> 00:09:56.280
  • BECAUSE I KNOW I FELT LED TO DO THIS SHOW ABOUT
  • 00:09:57.000 --> 00:09:58.110
  • ADULT SURVIVORS OF CHILD ABUSE WHO HAD FORGIVEN
  • 00:09:58.130 --> 00:10:00.120
  • THEIR ABUSERS.
  • 00:10:00.140 --> 00:10:01.290
  • OUT OF THE 30 PEOPLE, AND I KNEW EVERY ONE OF THEM
  • 00:10:02.010 --> 00:10:04.100
  • IN THE ROOM, [LAUGHTER], THERE WAS SOMEBODY
  • 00:10:04.120 --> 00:10:07.190
  • SAID THIS REALLY TOUCHED ME AND I WANT TO INVEST.
  • 00:10:07.210 --> 00:10:09.190
  • THAT'S HOW YOU KNOW WHEN GOD IS DOING SOMETHING
  • 00:10:09.210 --> 00:10:12.030
  • FOR YOU BECAUSE HE'LL PUT YOU ON A PATH AND JUST
  • 00:10:12.050 --> 00:10:14.040
  • WHEN YOU THINK YOU'RE AT THE END [APPLAUSE ]
  • 00:10:14.060 --> 00:10:17.020
  • SOMEBODY OR SOMEONE WILL SHOW UP AND SAY HEY,
  • 00:10:17.040 --> 00:10:19.180
  • HERE'S ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY OVER HERE.
  • 00:10:19.200 --> 00:10:22.250
  • SO FROM ABOUT '93, '94, '95, '96, '97 WE DID THIS
  • 00:10:22.270 --> 00:10:28.030
  • PLAY ONE IS A YEAR EVERYWHERE IN THESE
  • 00:10:28.050 --> 00:10:31.150
  • LITTLE SMALL TOWNS OUTSIDE OF ATLANTA.
  • 00:10:31.170 --> 00:10:33.290
  • AND THEY NEVER WORKED.
  • 00:10:34.010 --> 00:10:35.200
  • THEY NEVER WORKED.
  • 00:10:35.220 --> 00:10:36.280
  • EVERY TIME I'D GO SOMETHING WOULD HAPPEN.
  • 00:10:37.000 --> 00:10:39.010
  • I'D GO GET A JOB AND AFTER I'D WORK ON-THE-JOB
  • 00:10:39.030 --> 00:10:42.020
  • FOR A COUPLE WEEKS I'D GET A CALL SAYING HEY,
  • 00:10:42.040 --> 00:10:45.130
  • TAYLOR, WE WANT TO TRY THE PLAY SOMEWHERE ELSE.
  • 00:10:45.150 --> 00:10:47.140
  • AND I'D GO TO MY BOSS AND SAY LISTEN, I NEED TWO
  • 00:10:47.160 --> 00:10:50.040
  • WEEKS OFF TO GO DO THIS PLAY.
  • 00:10:50.060 --> 00:10:52.110
  • HE'S LIKE MAN, YOU JUST BEEN WORKING HERE TWO WEEKS.
  • 00:10:52.130 --> 00:10:54.050
  • HOW DO YOU THINK YOU CAN GET TWO WEEKS OFF?
  • 00:10:54.070 --> 00:10:56.080
  • [LAUGHTER ] AND I'D GO BACK TO MY DESK AND SIT
  • 00:10:56.100 --> 00:10:58.140
  • AND PRAY AND SAY OKAY, GOD.
  • 00:10:58.160 --> 00:11:00.080
  • I KNOW I JUST GOT THIS JOB.
  • 00:11:00.100 --> 00:11:02.030
  • I KNOW I JUST DID THE PLAY.
  • 00:11:02.050 --> 00:11:03.060
  • IT DIDN'T WORK.
  • 00:11:03.080 --> 00:11:04.210
  • I GOT ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY HERE.
  • 00:11:04.230 --> 00:11:06.120
  • IF THIS IS YOU TELLING ME, MAKE IT PLAIN.
  • 00:11:06.140 --> 00:11:07.250
  • WHAT SHOULD I DO, AND I HEAR THIS VOICE SAY QUIT.
  • 00:11:07.270 --> 00:11:09.230
  • NOW, I'M NOT TELLING YOU TO GO QUIT YOUR JOB.
  • 00:11:09.250 --> 00:11:11.180
  • I'M TELLING YOU MY STORY.
  • 00:11:11.200 --> 00:11:14.070
  • QUIT YOUR JOB, SEND ME YOUR BILLS, SAY YOU TOLD
  • 00:11:14.090 --> 00:11:15.280
  • ME TO QUIT.
  • 00:11:16.000 --> 00:11:17.070
  • NO. NO.
  • 00:11:17.090 --> 00:11:18.210
  • THAT'S NOT WHAT I'M SAYING.
  • 00:11:18.230 --> 00:11:20.270
  • SO THERE I WAS STEPPING OUT ON FAITH, LEAVING A
  • 00:11:20.290 --> 00:11:23.240
  • JOB THAT I KNEW THIS MONEY WAS GOING TO COME
  • 00:11:23.260 --> 00:11:25.210
  • IN FROM WEEK TO WEEK TO GO OUT AND DO THIS PLAY
  • 00:11:25.230 --> 00:11:27.250
  • BECAUSE I HEARD THE VOICE OF GOD.
  • 00:11:27.270 --> 00:11:29.200
  • SO I REMEMBER EVERY TIME I'D GO OUT TO DO THIS
  • 00:11:29.220 --> 00:11:32.040
  • SHOW, IT WOULDN'T WORK.
  • 00:11:32.060 --> 00:11:33.250
  • IT WASN'T SUCCESSFUL.
  • 00:11:33.270 --> 00:11:35.240
  • AND I'M LIKE GOD, I KNOW YOU TOLD ME TO DO THIS.
  • 00:11:35.260 --> 00:11:37.200
  • AND WHEN I'D PRAY, I'D HEAR NOTHING.
  • 00:11:37.220 --> 00:11:39.090
  • THAT SAME VOICE THAT SAID QUIT, I HEARD NOTHING
  • 00:11:39.110 --> 00:11:41.040
  • WHICH WAS A VERY DIFFICULT TIME FOR ME.
  • 00:11:41.060 --> 00:11:42.060
  • VERY DIFFICULT.
  • 00:11:42.080 --> 00:11:44.040
  • AND I REMEMBER THE TIME YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:11:44.060 --> 00:11:46.270
  • WAS IN SPARTANBURG, SOUTH CAROLINA.
  • 00:11:46.290 --> 00:11:48.110
  • I HAD GOTTEN ANOTHER JOB.
  • 00:11:48.130 --> 00:11:50.090
  • MAN, I HAD ABOUT 20 JOBS THROUGH THIS TIME.
  • 00:11:50.110 --> 00:11:51.280
  • I'D GOT ANOTHER JOB, ASKED THE BOSS, HE SAID
  • 00:11:52.000 --> 00:11:53.170
  • NO, I HEARD THE VOICE QUIT.
  • 00:11:53.190 --> 00:11:55.190
  • I GO OUT AND DO THIS SHOW, AND I'M DRIVING
  • 00:11:55.210 --> 00:11:59.050
  • THERE AND THERE'S A HURRICANE HEADED
  • 00:11:59.070 --> 00:12:01.210
  • TOWARD SPARTANBURG.
  • 00:12:01.230 --> 00:12:03.290
  • HURRICANE.
  • 00:12:04.010 --> 00:12:05.220
  • I'M LIKE GOD, I KNOW YOU CONTROL THE WIND AND THE --
  • 00:12:05.240 --> 00:12:08.080
  • [LAUGHTER ] WIND AND THE WAVES BUT YOU TOLD ME
  • 00:12:08.100 --> 00:12:10.120
  • TO QUIT AND NOW NOBODY'S GOING TO SHOW UP.
  • 00:12:10.140 --> 00:12:12.270
  • SO I LOST EVERYTHING, HOMELESS, SLEEPING IN MY
  • 00:12:12.290 --> 00:12:14.240
  • CAR, FOLLOWING GOD.
  • 00:12:14.260 --> 00:12:16.210
  • WHEN YOU FOLLOW GOD, SOMETIMES THINGS GET TOUGH.
  • 00:12:16.230 --> 00:12:19.160
  • THEY GET TIGHT.
  • 00:12:19.180 --> 00:12:21.020
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:12:21.040 --> 00:12:24.250
  • BUT IF YOU KEEP PUSHING JUST ON THE OTHER SIDE OF
  • 00:12:24.270 --> 00:12:27.100
  • WHEN YOU THINK IT'S THE DARKEST, SOMETHING
  • 00:12:27.120 --> 00:12:30.080
  • MIRACULOUS WILL HAPPEN THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:12:30.100 --> 00:12:32.130
  • SOMETHING WILL OPEN UP THAT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND.
  • 00:12:32.150 --> 00:12:35.010
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:12:35.030 --> 00:12:38.120
  • SO IT WAS 199 8 AND I GOT THIS OPPORTUNITY TO DO
  • 00:12:38.140 --> 00:12:40.270
  • THIS SHOW AGAIN, AND IT WAS AT THE HOUSE OF BLUES.
  • 00:12:40.290 --> 00:12:43.040
  • AND I WAS LIKE I DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:12:43.060 --> 00:12:45.170
  • I'M DONE.
  • 00:12:45.190 --> 00:12:47.120
  • I'M GOING TO DO LIKE MY MOTHER SAID, MY MOTHER
  • 00:12:47.140 --> 00:12:49.120
  • WHO LOVED ME DEARLY, LOVED ME DEARLY.
  • 00:12:49.140 --> 00:12:51.120
  • WE WERE DOING A PLAY AT THE SPARTANBURG TRIP, AND
  • 00:12:51.140 --> 00:12:53.080
  • I COULDN'T AFFORD TO PAY THE CREDIT CARD BECAUSE
  • 00:12:53.100 --> 00:12:55.050
  • THEY'D RENTED A VAN FOR US, AND THAT BILL WAS 300
  • 00:12:55.070 --> 00:12:58.030
  • DOLLARS AND 300 DOLLARS TO MY MOTHER WAS LIKE
  • 00:12:58.050 --> 00:13:00.020
  • 30 MILLION.
  • 00:13:00.040 --> 00:13:02.060
  • LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, MY MOTHER
  • 00:13:02.080 --> 00:13:03.290
  • LOVED ME TO DEATH, SWEET WONDERFUL WOMAN, BUT SHE
  • 00:13:04.010 --> 00:13:06.100
  • WOULD CUT YOU OUT AND BEAT YOU UP AND THEN PRAY
  • 00:13:06.120 --> 00:13:09.120
  • FOR YOU AS SHE WAS TAKING YOU TO THE HOSPITAL.
  • 00:13:09.140 --> 00:13:11.200
  • THAT'S THE KIND OF PERSON SHE WAS.
  • 00:13:11.220 --> 00:13:13.030
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:13:13.050 --> 00:13:15.190
  • SO WE'RE SITTING IN THE HOUSE, AND SHE WAS
  • 00:13:15.210 --> 00:13:18.050
  • SAYING, LISTEN, I'M TIRED OF THIS.
  • 00:13:18.070 --> 00:13:19.220

  • THAN ANYTHING.
  • 00:13:28.190 --> 00:13:30.280
  • SHE SAID YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:13:31.000 --> 00:13:32.060

  • JUST GO GET A JOB AT THE PHONE COMPANY.
  • 00:13:37.170 --> 00:13:38.240

  • AND THE BLOOD DRAINED FROM HER FACE, AND SHE
  • 00:13:43.160 --> 00:13:44.120
  • SAID BABY, I'M SO SORRY.
  • 00:13:44.140 --> 00:13:45.190
  • I'M SO SORRY.
  • 00:13:45.210 --> 00:13:47.080
  • I DIDN'T KNOW HOW IMPORTANT THIS WAS FOR YOU.
  • 00:13:47.100 --> 00:13:48.200
  • BUT WHAT I WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND IS THAT I

  • THEY'RE SAYING THE RIGHT THINGS TO YOU TO TRY TO
  • 00:14:02.250 --> 00:14:04.130
  • PROTECT YOU OR PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN IN YOUR

  • KNOW WHAT GOD HAS PUT DOWN INSIDE OF YOU
  • 00:14:07.160 --> 00:14:09.040
  • BECAUSE THEY THINK THEY'RE SO FAMILIAR WITH

  • HAPPENING.
  • 00:14:30.280 --> 00:14:32.170
  • GOD WOULD TELL ME TO QUIT.
  • 00:14:32.190 --> 00:14:34.000
  • THEN HE'D GET ME OUT THERE AND LEAVE ME.
  • 00:14:34.020 --> 00:14:36.030
  • YOU'D LEAD ME OUT THERE BY MYSELF.
  • 00:14:36.050 --> 00:14:37.200
  • GOD, WHERE ARE YOU?
  • 00:14:37.220 --> 00:14:39.010
  • YOU WOULDN'T EVEN TALK TO ME DURING
  • 00:14:39.030 --> 00:14:40.070
  • THESE DARK TIMES.
  • 00:14:40.090 --> 00:14:41.180
  • SO I WAS MAD.
  • 00:14:41.200 --> 00:14:42.230
  • I WAS DONE.
  • 00:14:42.250 --> 00:14:44.010
  • I HAD WENT TO GET MY APPLICATION AT SOUTH
  • 00:14:44.030 --> 00:14:45.130
  • CENTRAL BELL LIKE MY MOTHER SAID AND GO TO
  • 00:14:45.150 --> 00:14:46.210
  • WORK AT THE PHONE COMPANY.
  • 00:14:46.230 --> 00:14:48.040
  • I WANTED SOME BENEFITS TO GET MY TEETH FIXED.
  • 00:14:48.060 --> 00:14:49.260
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:14:49.280 --> 00:14:51.230
  • SO THERE I AM, THERE I AM IN 1998, GETTING THIS
  • 00:14:51.250 --> 00:14:57.050
  • OPPORTUNITY AT THE HOUSE OF BLUES, AND I WALK IN
  • 00:14:57.070 --> 00:14:59.290
  • AND THERE'S ALL THIS THEY CALL IT FOLK ART ALL OVER
  • 00:15:00.030 --> 00:15:01.180
  • THE WALLS.
  • 00:15:01.200 --> 00:15:03.030
  • I'M FROM NEW ORLEANS.
  • 00:15:03.050 --> 00:15:04.110
  • I SAID THAT'S VOODOO, AND I'M NOT PERFORMING HERE.
  • 00:15:04.130 --> 00:15:05.050
  • GET IT OFF THE WALLS.
  • 00:15:05.070 --> 00:15:06.160
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:15:06.180 --> 00:15:08.070
  • SO THEY TOLD ME THE NEXT DAY HOUSE OF BLUES WAS
  • 00:15:08.090 --> 00:15:10.160
  • PULLING OUT, SO HOUSE OF BLUES WAS GONE.
  • 00:15:10.180 --> 00:15:13.070
  • SO THE NAME OF THE PLACE WOULD RETURN TO ITS
  • 00:15:13.090 --> 00:15:15.230
  • ORIGINAL NAME.
  • 00:15:15.250 --> 00:15:17.150
  • IT WAS A CHURCH.
  • 00:15:17.170 --> 00:15:18.260
  • IT WAS CALLED THE TABERNACLE.
  • 00:15:18.280 --> 00:15:20.090
  • SO I WAS ABOUT TO PERFORM IN A PLACE CALLED
  • 00:15:20.110 --> 00:15:22.220
  • THE TABERNACLE.
  • 00:15:22.240 --> 00:15:24.220
  • I GO AND I DO THE SHOW, AND I'M COMPLAINING
  • 00:15:24.240 --> 00:15:27.290
  • ALL THE WAY.
  • 00:15:28.010 --> 00:15:30.000
  • I'M THERE PUTTING ON MY MAKE UP AND GETTING READY
  • 00:15:30.020 --> 00:15:31.230
  • TO PLAY OLD MAN JOE AND I'VE GOT AN ATTITUDE.
  • 00:15:31.250 --> 00:15:33.060
  • I'M JUST MAD.
  • 00:15:33.080 --> 00:15:34.150
  • I'M UPSET.
  • 00:15:34.170 --> 00:15:35.240
  • I'M LIKE I DON'T WANT TO DO THIS, AND I HEAR THAT
  • 00:15:35.260 --> 00:15:37.120
  • VOICE, THE ONE THAT TOLD ME TO QUIT SAY SHUT UP.
  • 00:15:37.140 --> 00:15:39.060
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:15:39.080 --> 00:15:41.070
  • LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING WHEN GOD TELLS YOU TO
  • 00:15:41.090 --> 00:15:43.010
  • SHUT UP YOU SIT AROUND AND YOU SAY, WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:15:43.030 --> 00:15:45.160
  • AND HE SAID GET UP AND LOOK OUT THE WINDOW.
  • 00:15:45.180 --> 00:15:47.010
  • I GOT UP AND I LOOKED OUT OF THIS LITTLE DUSTY
  • 00:15:47.030 --> 00:15:48.270
  • WINDOW, AND THERE WAS A LINE AROUND THE CORNER
  • 00:15:48.290 --> 00:15:50.200
  • TRYING TO GET IN THE BUILDING.
  • 00:15:50.220 --> 00:15:52.240
  • AND [APPLAUSE ] THE PLACE SOLD OUT OVER AND
  • 00:15:52.260 --> 00:15:55.100
  • OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
  • 00:15:55.120 --> 00:15:57.110
  • AND I SAID GOD, WHERE WERE YOU IN ALL THOSE TIMES?
  • 00:15:57.130 --> 00:15:59.070
  • HE SAID I WAS PROVING YOU TO SEE THAT YOU WOULD
  • 00:15:59.090 --> 00:16:01.200
  • HONOR THIS, THAT YOU WOULD DO THE RIGHT
  • 00:16:01.220 --> 00:16:03.070
  • THING WITH IT.
  • 00:16:03.090 --> 00:16:04.240
  • SOMETIMES WHEN YOU'RE NOT HEARING FROM GOD, GOD IS
  • 00:16:04.260 --> 00:16:06.220
  • TRYING TO SEE WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO DO IN THE
  • 00:16:06.240 --> 00:16:08.110
  • SITUATION THAT YOU'RE IN.
  • 00:16:08.130 --> 00:16:10.000
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:16:10.020 --> 00:16:12.090
  • AND IT TURNED OUT TO BE AN INCREDIBLE MOMENT THAT
  • 00:16:12.110 --> 00:16:14.110
  • HAS TAKEN ME FROM THAT SOLD OUT HOUSE ALL THE
  • 00:16:14.130 --> 00:16:16.250
  • WAY INTO EVERY SHOW WE'VE DONE.
  • 00:16:16.270 --> 00:16:18.210
  • IT'S BEEN INCREDIBLE.
  • 00:16:18.230 --> 00:16:20.180
  • IT'S MIRACULOUS.
  • 00:16:20.200 --> 00:16:22.090
  • IT'S BEEN NOTHING BUT GOD, AND I'M GRATEFUL
  • 00:16:22.110 --> 00:16:23.200
  • FOR IT.
  • 00:16:23.220 --> 00:16:25.010
  • - THAT'S SO AWESOME.
  • 00:16:25.030 --> 00:16:26.090
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:16:26.110 --> 00:16:27.270
  • TYLER, ANOTHER IMPORTANT PART OF THE STORY.
  • 00:16:27.290 --> 00:16:29.140
  • JUMP BACK THERE A LITTLE BIT BECAUSE YOUR FATHER
  • 00:16:29.160 --> 00:16:31.150
  • DIDN'T TREAT YOU RIGHT.
  • 00:16:31.170 --> 00:16:33.110
  • A LOT OF BITTERNESS.
  • 00:16:33.130 --> 00:16:34.270
  • ANGER.
  • 00:16:34.290 --> 00:16:36.080
  • CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT HOW SOMETHING BROKE THERE?
  • 00:16:36.100 --> 00:16:37.160
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:16:37.180 --> 00:16:38.290
  • WHAT BROKE IN THE MOMENT IF YOU WONDERED WHAT
  • 00:16:39.010 --> 00:16:40.150
  • HAPPENED FROM LIKE THE TIME WHEN I STARTED DOING
  • 00:16:40.170 --> 00:16:42.030
  • THESE SHOWS TO THE TIME WHEN THEY STARTED TO TAKE
  • 00:16:42.050 --> 00:16:43.160
  • OFF, WHAT BROKE IN THE MOMENT, WELL, HERE I WAS
  • 00:16:43.180 --> 00:16:45.130
  • WITH THIS SCRIPT ABOUT ADULT SURVIVORS OF CHILD
  • 00:16:45.150 --> 00:16:47.150
  • ABUSE WHOSE PARENTS HAD ABUSED HIM.
  • 00:16:47.170 --> 00:16:49.090
  • AND THE CHARACTERS IN THE SHOW THAT I HAD WRITTEN
  • 00:16:49.110 --> 00:16:51.060
  • FROM MY OWN MIND HAD FORGIVEN THEIR ABUSERS.
  • 00:16:51.080 --> 00:16:55.080
  • BUT I HADN'T FORGIVEN MY FATHER.
  • 00:16:55.100 --> 00:16:58.140
  • SO ONE DAY WE WERE ON THE PHONE BEFORE THE SHOW
  • 00:16:58.160 --> 00:17:00.260
  • SOLD OUT, BEFORE EVERYTHING CHANGED WE
  • 00:17:00.280 --> 00:17:02.280
  • WERE ON THE PHONE, AND I GOT A CHANCE TO JUST SAY
  • 00:17:03.000 --> 00:17:05.020
  • EVERYTHING THAT WAS ON MY MIND BECAUSE I WASN'T THE
  • 00:17:05.040 --> 00:17:06.230
  • LITTLE BOY ANYMORE.
  • 00:17:06.250 --> 00:17:08.090
  • I WAS A 6 FOOT 6 MAN AND I WASN'T AFRAID, AND I
  • 00:17:08.110 --> 00:17:09.230
  • STARTED SAYING EVERYTHING THAT I NEEDED TO SAY TO HIM.
  • 00:17:09.250 --> 00:17:12.010
  • AND THE THINGS THAT CAME OUT OF MY MOUTH BLEW MY
  • 00:17:12.030 --> 00:17:14.090
  • MIND, BUT AT THE END OF IT WHAT I HEARD WAS I
  • 00:17:14.110 --> 00:17:15.190
  • FORGIVE YOU.
  • 00:17:15.210 --> 00:17:17.130
  • I SAID I FORGIVE YOU TO HIM.
  • 00:17:17.150 --> 00:17:19.150
  • AND SOMETHING SHIFTED IN ME.
  • 00:17:19.170 --> 00:17:22.010
  • SOMETHING SHIFTED.
  • 00:17:22.030 --> 00:17:23.190
  • LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, FORGIVENESS IS
  • 00:17:23.210 --> 00:17:25.190
  • SO INCREDIBLY POWERFUL.
  • 00:17:25.210 --> 00:17:27.140
  • FORGIVENESS IS NOT FOR THE OTHER PERSON.
  • 00:17:27.160 --> 00:17:29.150
  • IT IS FOR YOU.
  • 00:17:29.170 --> 00:17:30.200
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:17:30.220 --> 00:17:32.150
  • THERE ARE PEOPLE LIVING THEIR LIVES WHO HAVE DONE
  • 00:17:32.170 --> 00:17:34.220
  • YOU WRONG, THEY ARE HAPPY WALKING DOWN THE STREET
  • 00:17:34.240 --> 00:17:36.150
  • AND NOT EVEN THINKING ABOUT YOU, BUT THERE YOU
  • 00:17:36.170 --> 00:17:37.270
  • ARE HOLDING ONTO UNFORGIVENNESS.
  • 00:17:37.290 --> 00:17:39.240
  • WHEN I FORGAVE THIS MAN, I FOUND MYSELF TRYING TO
  • 00:17:39.260 --> 00:17:42.110
  • -I WAS LOST FOR A SECOND BECAUSE MY ENTIRE FUEL
  • 00:17:42.130 --> 00:17:47.060
  • WAS BASED ON THE NEGATIVITY OF NOT
  • 00:17:47.080 --> 00:17:49.160
  • FORGIVING HIM, BUT ONCE I FORGAVE HIM, I HAD TO
  • 00:17:49.180 --> 00:17:52.100
  • FIND A WAY TO FIND ANOTHER SOURCE OF FUEL.
  • 00:17:52.120 --> 00:17:56.110
  • SO THE NEGATIVITY AND ALL THE DARKNESS THAT I'D
  • 00:17:56.130 --> 00:17:59.150
  • BEEN THROUGH WAS THE SOURCE.
  • 00:17:59.170 --> 00:18:01.050
  • NOW I NEEDED A MORE POSITIVE SOURCE.
  • 00:18:01.070 --> 00:18:02.230
  • NOW I NEEDED A GOOD SOURCE, A PURE SOURCE.
  • 00:18:02.250 --> 00:18:05.090
  • IT'S LIKE TAKING A CAR THIS RUNS ON DISEASES AND
  • 00:18:05.110 --> 00:18:07.290
  • PUTTING REGULAR GASOLINE IN IT.
  • 00:18:08.010 --> 00:18:10.050
  • AND THEN ALL THE SUDDEN YOU SAY DRIVE, AND
  • 00:18:10.070 --> 00:18:12.110
  • SOMETHING IS GOING TO GO WRONG SO YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:18:12.130 --> 00:18:14.150
  • REWORK ALL THE COMPONENTS INSIDE YOUR MIND TO BE
  • 00:18:14.170 --> 00:18:16.160
  • ABLE TO FUNCTION IN POSITIVITY.
  • 00:18:16.180 --> 00:18:18.280
  • SO THAT SHIFT FOR ME WAS SO INCREDIBLE.
  • 00:18:19.000 --> 00:18:21.060
  • FORGIVENESS DID ALL OF THAT FOR ME, AND THE
  • 00:18:21.080 --> 00:18:23.090
  • MINUTE I DID THAT, THE MINUTE I STARTED TO
  • 00:18:23.110 --> 00:18:25.140
  • FUNCTION IN DOING THE RIGHT THING AND BEING
  • 00:18:25.160 --> 00:18:27.180
  • POSITIVE, I WENT FROM NOBODY COMING TO THE SHOW
  • 00:18:27.200 --> 00:18:29.290
  • TO NOT HAVING ENOUGH SEATS FOR THE PEOPLE TO
  • 00:18:30.010 --> 00:18:32.040
  • GET INTO THE PLACES.
  • 00:18:32.060 --> 00:18:34.000
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:18:34.020 --> 00:18:35.080
  • - WOW.
  • 00:18:35.100 --> 00:18:36.200
  • POWERFUL.
  • 00:18:36.220 --> 00:18:38.020
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:18:38.040 --> 00:18:39.220
  • - I WENT UP A FEW MONTHS AGO, TYLER, AND WE TOURED
  • 00:18:39.240 --> 00:18:42.000
  • YOUR FACILITY, YOUR STUDIO.
  • 00:18:42.020 --> 00:18:43.270
  • YOU BOUGHT 300 ACRES, THE OLD ARMY BASE.
  • 00:18:43.290 --> 00:18:45.170
  • - FORT MCPHERSON.
  • 00:18:45.190 --> 00:18:47.060
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:18:47.080 --> 00:18:48.210
  • TELL US ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:18:48.230 --> 00:18:50.190
  • AND I LOVE ABOUT THE ENTRIES, ABOUT WHAT YOU
  • 00:18:50.210 --> 00:18:52.040
  • DID THERE.
  • 00:18:52.060 --> 00:18:54.050
  • JUST FIRST OFF, IT'S A PLACE -IT'S A STUDIO
  • 00:18:54.070 --> 00:18:56.080
  • WHERE HE'S GOT PROBABLY 20 BIG STUDIOS WHERE THEY
  • 00:18:56.100 --> 00:18:58.040
  • SHOOT SOME OF THE BIGGEST SHOWS THAT WE SEE ON
  • 00:18:58.060 --> 00:19:00.040
  • TELEVISION TODAY.
  • 00:19:00.060 --> 00:19:02.030
  • WELL, TYLER REMODELED IT.
  • 00:19:02.050 --> 00:19:03.160
  • IT'S A MAGNIFICENT PLACE.
  • 00:19:03.180 --> 00:19:04.260
  • BUT TELL THEM ABOUT THAT OTHER PART.
  • 00:19:04.280 --> 00:19:06.220
  • - I WAS TELLING PASTOR JOEL THIS, WHEN YOU COME
  • 00:19:06.240 --> 00:19:09.260
  • TO THE STUDIO, WHEN YOU DRIVE IN THERE'S ONLY A
  • 00:19:09.280 --> 00:19:11.130
  • COUPLE WAYS TO GET IN.
  • 00:19:11.150 --> 00:19:13.020
  • BUT WHEN YOU DRIVE IN YOU HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE GATES.
  • 00:19:13.040 --> 00:19:15.020
  • AND WHAT WE DID AT THE GATES WERE WE BURIED
  • 00:19:15.040 --> 00:19:18.030
  • BIBLES, SO IN ORDER TO COME INTO THE FACILITY
  • 00:19:18.050 --> 00:19:21.050
  • YOU'VE GOT TO COME OVER THE WORD.
  • 00:19:21.070 --> 00:19:23.020
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:19:23.040 --> 00:19:25.120
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:19:25.140 --> 00:19:27.130
  • YEAH.
  • 00:19:27.150 --> 00:19:29.070
  • AND WHEN YOU LEAVE OUT, YOU GOT TO DO THE SAME,
  • 00:19:29.090 --> 00:19:30.280
  • SO YOUR BLESSED GOING AND COMING.
  • 00:19:31.000 --> 00:19:32.280
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:19:33.000 --> 00:19:35.280
  • AND WE PUT THEM UNDER THE FOUNDATIONS OF ALL THE
  • 00:19:36.000 --> 00:19:37.270
  • SOUND STAGES AND PEOPLE -YOU SHOULD SEE PEOPLE
  • 00:19:37.290 --> 00:19:40.010
  • WHO DON'T KNOW GOD.
  • 00:19:40.030 --> 00:19:41.120
  • IT'S SO FUNNY.
  • 00:19:41.140 --> 00:19:43.170
  • THEY'RE SITTING AROUND GOING, THERE'S SOMETHING
  • 00:19:43.190 --> 00:19:45.120
  • VERY DIFFERENT ABOUT THIS PLACE.
  • 00:19:45.140 --> 00:19:47.030
  • IT'S -THE ATMOSPHERE IS REALLY COOL.
  • 00:19:47.050 --> 00:19:48.220
  • DON'T YOU THINK?
  • 00:19:48.240 --> 00:19:49.290
  • I SAY, YEAH. YEAH.
  • 00:19:50.010 --> 00:19:51.080
  • COME STAND RIGHT HERE FOR A LITTLE BIT AND TELL ME
  • 00:19:51.100 --> 00:19:52.190
  • HOW COOL IT IS.
  • 00:19:52.210 --> 00:19:53.170
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:19:53.190 --> 00:19:56.280
  • TELL ME TYLER ABOUT THE OLD BUILDINGS THERE AND
  • 00:19:57.000 --> 00:19:59.070
  • THE OLD LETTER YOU FOUND.
  • 00:19:59.090 --> 00:20:01.100
  • - LET ME TELL YOU HOW WONDERFUL THIS COUNTRY IS.
  • 00:20:01.120 --> 00:20:05.250
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT'S GOING ON IN THE COUNTRY, THIS
  • 00:20:05.270 --> 00:20:07.220
  • IS A WONDERFUL COUNTRY.
  • 00:20:07.240 --> 00:20:11.180
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:20:11.200 --> 00:20:14.240
  • AND THE BEAUTY OF THIS MOMENT, ME BEING INVITED
  • 00:20:14.260 --> 00:20:18.160
  • HERE LOOKING AT ALL YOUR FACES ALL DIFFERENT RACES
  • 00:20:18.180 --> 00:20:20.170
  • SITTING HERE TOGETHER, SERVING ONE GOD.
  • 00:20:20.190 --> 00:20:23.060
  • THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERS, THE ONE GOD THAT WE SERVE.
  • 00:20:23.080 --> 00:20:25.210
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:20:25.230 --> 00:20:28.280
  • THE REASON I BROUGHT THAT UP IS BECAUSE HERE WAS AN
  • 00:20:29.000 --> 00:20:31.020
  • ARMY BASE THAT WAS ESTABLISHED 20 YEARS
  • 00:20:31.040 --> 00:20:33.020
  • AFTER THE ABOLISH.
  • 00:20:33.040 --> 00:20:35.050
  • OF SLAVERY THAT WAS ONCE A CONFEDERATE ARMY BASE
  • 00:20:35.070 --> 00:20:36.230
  • THAT I NOW OWN.
  • 00:20:36.250 --> 00:20:38.190
  • I MEAN, THE MIRACLE IN THAT ALONE, THE MIRACLE
  • 00:20:38.210 --> 00:20:40.090
  • IN THAT ALONE.
  • 00:20:40.110 --> 00:20:43.040
  • SOME OF THESE HOUSES WERE BUILT IN THE 1800'S, AND
  • 00:20:43.060 --> 00:20:47.070
  • PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT STAYED THERE.
  • 00:20:47.090 --> 00:20:49.020
  • COLIN POWELL STAYED THERE, AND WE WERE DOING
  • 00:20:49.040 --> 00:20:50.290
  • SOME CLEAN UP ON ONE OF THEM.
  • 00:20:51.010 --> 00:20:52.220
  • THEY'RE BEAUTIFUL, BUT SOME OF THEM HAD SOME
  • 00:20:52.240 --> 00:20:54.060
  • ASBESTOS SO WE BROUGHT IN A TEAM TO REMOVE IT, AND
  • 00:20:54.080 --> 00:20:55.280
  • WE HAD AFTER THEY LEFT OUT MY CLEANING CREW WENT
  • 00:20:56.000 --> 00:20:59.060
  • IN FROM THE STUDIO, AND THEY MOVED THIS CABINET
  • 00:20:59.080 --> 00:21:02.210
  • THAT HAD BEEN THEREFORE MANY MANY YEARS, AND
  • 00:21:02.230 --> 00:21:05.020
  • SOMETHING FELL OUT.
  • 00:21:05.040 --> 00:21:07.060
  • IT WAS A LETTER.
  • 00:21:07.080 --> 00:21:08.290
  • THEY BROUGHT THE LETTER TO ME, AND I STARTED
  • 00:21:09.010 --> 00:21:10.130
  • READING IT.
  • 00:21:10.150 --> 00:21:11.230
  • WHEN I READ IT, I GOT TEARS IN MY EYES BECAUSE
  • 00:21:11.250 --> 00:21:13.250
  • WHAT I REALIZED IS THAT THIS LETTER WAS WRITTEN
  • 00:21:13.270 --> 00:21:16.140
  • TO ME, BUT THE LETTER WAS WRITTEN OCTOBER 29, 1969
  • 00:21:16.160 --> 00:21:21.210
  • BY A 13 YEAR OLD BOY IN ATLANTA, GEORGIA.
  • 00:21:21.230 --> 00:21:28.030
  • HE GOES ONTO TELL ALL THESE STORIES IN THE
  • 00:21:28.050 --> 00:21:30.090
  • LETTER AND HE'S WRITING ABOUT WHERE HE'S COME
  • 00:21:30.110 --> 00:21:32.200
  • FROM, THE COUNTRY IS AT WAR, NIXON IS
  • 00:21:32.220 --> 00:21:34.240
  • THE PRESIDENT.
  • 00:21:34.260 --> 00:21:36.190
  • AND HE'S SAYING ALL THIS STUFF, BUT THERE'S ONE
  • 00:21:36.210 --> 00:21:38.140
  • LINE THAT REALLY CAUGHT MY ATTENTION.
  • 00:21:38.160 --> 00:21:41.010
  • HE SAID, I KNOW THIS SOUNDS SILLY BUT I'VE
  • 00:21:41.030 --> 00:21:43.010
  • ALWAYS WANTED TO WRITE A LETTER TO THE FUTURE.
  • 00:21:43.030 --> 00:21:44.110
  • SO HE WROTE THE LETTER OCTOBER 29, 1969.
  • 00:21:44.130 --> 00:21:47.050
  • WELL, I WAS BORN SEPTEMBER 14, 1969.
  • 00:21:47.070 --> 00:21:51.050
  • SO I HAD ONLY BEEN ON THE PLANET SIX WEEKS.
  • 00:21:51.070 --> 00:21:54.160
  • I'M THERE IN MY MOTHER'S ARMS IN NEW ORLEANS, AND
  • 00:21:54.180 --> 00:21:57.130
  • THERE'S A LITTLE 13 YEAR OLD BOY AT FORT MCPHERSON
  • 00:21:57.150 --> 00:22:00.240
  • ARMY BASE IN ATLANTA WRITING A LETTER TO THE
  • 00:22:00.260 --> 00:22:03.000
  • FUTURE THAT I WOULD FIND 48 YEARS LATER.
  • 00:22:03.020 --> 00:22:06.240
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:22:06.260 --> 00:22:08.120
  • AND I REALIZE I AM THE FUTURE THAT HE WAS
  • 00:22:08.140 --> 00:22:11.030
  • WRITING TO, AND IT CAME AT A TIME WHEN I WAS
  • 00:22:11.050 --> 00:22:13.260
  • GOING THROUGH SOME THINGS AND I HAD TO MAKE SOME
  • 00:22:13.280 --> 00:22:15.210
  • DECISIONS ABOUT THE STUDIO, AND IT JUST BLEW
  • 00:22:15.230 --> 00:22:18.000
  • MY MIND BECAUSE THERE I WAS IN THIS MOMENT
  • 00:22:18.020 --> 00:22:19.270
  • UNDERSTANDING THAT GOD HAD ALREADY ORDAINED THIS
  • 00:22:19.290 --> 00:22:21.290
  • EVEN BEFORE I GOT TO THE PLANET.
  • 00:22:22.010 --> 00:22:23.270
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:22:23.290 --> 00:22:26.060
  • IT WAS SO POWERFUL.
  • 00:22:26.080 --> 00:22:27.260
  • SO POWERFUL.
  • 00:22:27.280 --> 00:22:28.290
  • SO WONDERFUL.
  • 00:22:29.010 --> 00:22:30.180
  • AND I JUST FELT SO BLESSED AND SO FORTUNATE.
  • 00:22:30.200 --> 00:22:32.190
  • I STILL HAVE THE LETTER AND I HAVE IT FRAMED AND
  • 00:22:32.210 --> 00:22:34.130
  • EVERY TIME I'M GOING THROUGH SOMETHING OR
  • 00:22:34.150 --> 00:22:36.050
  • DEALING WITH SOMETHING, I WALK PASSED IT AND I'M
  • 00:22:36.070 --> 00:22:37.230
  • REMINDED GOD'S GOT IT.
  • 00:22:37.250 --> 00:22:39.020
  • GOD GOT IT.
  • 00:22:39.040 --> 00:22:40.060
  • EVERYTHING IS ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:22:40.080 --> 00:22:41.030
  • GOD'S GOT IT.
  • 00:22:41.050 --> 00:22:42.170
  • - THAT'S SO GOOD.
  • 00:22:42.190 --> 00:22:44.050
  • TYLER, SOMEBODY ASKED YOU ABOUT ALL YOUR FAILURES.
  • 00:22:44.070 --> 00:22:46.140
  • EXPLAIN THAT.
  • 00:22:46.160 --> 00:22:47.130
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:22:47.150 --> 00:22:48.260
  • THIS SHOCKED A FEW PEOPLE.
  • 00:22:48.280 --> 00:22:50.030
  • THEY SAID LET'S TALK ABOUT YOUR FAILURES.
  • 00:22:50.050 --> 00:22:51.040
  • I SAID I DON'T HAVE ANY.
  • 00:22:51.060 --> 00:22:52.150
  • AND I TELL YOU WHY.
  • 00:22:52.170 --> 00:22:54.250
  • I TELL YOU WHY I SAY THAT.
  • 00:22:54.270 --> 00:22:57.090
  • I TELL YOU WHY I SAY THAT BECAUSE WHEN YOU KNOW
  • 00:22:57.110 --> 00:22:59.110
  • THAT EVERYTHING IN YOUR LIFE IS GOING TO WORK
  • 00:22:59.130 --> 00:23:01.060
  • TOGETHER FOR YOUR GOOD -- [ APPLAUSE ] I LOOK BACK ON
  • 00:23:01.080 --> 00:23:04.260
  • ALL THE THINGS IN MY LIFE THAT I THOUGHT THAT
  • 00:23:04.280 --> 00:23:07.120
  • SHOULD HAVE BEEN A FAILURE, THAT SHOULD HAVE
  • 00:23:07.140 --> 00:23:08.290
  • BEEN A FAILURE.
  • 00:23:09.010 --> 00:23:10.100
  • BUT WHEN I REALLY ANALYZE IT I REALIZED THOSE WERE
  • 00:23:10.120 --> 00:23:11.230
  • TEACHING MOMENTS.
  • 00:23:11.250 --> 00:23:13.160
  • THOSE WERE MOLDING MOMENTS.
  • 00:23:13.180 --> 00:23:15.040
  • THOSE WERE MOVING MOMENTS, AND I REALIZE
  • 00:23:15.060 --> 00:23:17.020
  • HAD THAT NOT HAPPENED I WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN READY
  • 00:23:17.040 --> 00:23:19.180
  • FOR THIS MOMENT, OR HAD THAT SITUATION NOT GONE
  • 00:23:19.200 --> 00:23:21.210
  • ON I WOULDN'T HAD BEEN READY TO GO HERE.
  • 00:23:21.230 --> 00:23:23.180
  • HAD I NOT BEEN ABLE TO LIVE AT THAT ALTITUDE I
  • 00:23:23.200 --> 00:23:25.210
  • WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN ABLE TO STAND AT
  • 00:23:25.230 --> 00:23:27.060
  • THIS ALTITUDE.
  • 00:23:27.080 --> 00:23:28.260
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:23:28.280 --> 00:23:31.120
  • SO WHAT HAPPENED TO ME AS I LOOK BACK ON ALL THOSE
  • 00:23:31.140 --> 00:23:33.050
  • MOMENTS I DON'T CALL THEM FAILURES.
  • 00:23:33.070 --> 00:23:34.210
  • I CALL THEM THE GRACE OF GOD BECAUSE IT BROUGHT ME
  • 00:23:34.230 --> 00:23:36.120
  • RIGHT WHERE I NEEDED TO BE.
  • 00:23:36.140 --> 00:23:37.200
  • - I LOVE IT.
  • 00:23:37.220 --> 00:23:38.250
  • HE'S ORDERING YOUR STEPS.
  • 00:23:38.270 --> 00:23:40.090
  • - RIGHT WHERE I NEEDED TO BE.
  • 00:23:40.110 --> 00:23:41.210
  • - ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:23:41.230 --> 00:23:43.100
  • SHIFT GEARS A MINUTE.
  • 00:23:43.120 --> 00:23:44.260
  • WHERE DID MEDEA COME FROM?
  • 00:23:44.280 --> 00:23:46.140
  • - OH, LORD.
  • 00:23:46.160 --> 00:23:48.070
  • [LAUGHTER ] - I CAN'T FIND HER IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:23:48.090 --> 00:23:49.150
  • - NO, YOU CAN'T FIND HER IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:23:49.170 --> 00:23:50.240
  • YOU WON'T FIND HER ANYWHERE IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:23:50.260 --> 00:23:52.160
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:23:52.180 --> 00:23:54.090
  • MEDEA, I HAVE AN AUNT TO LIVES HERE IN HOUSTON AND
  • 00:23:54.110 --> 00:23:56.050
  • HER NAME IS MELLA.
  • 00:23:56.070 --> 00:23:58.190
  • AND SHE AND MY MOTHER MEDEA IS A CROSS BETWEEN
  • 00:23:58.210 --> 00:24:01.210
  • BOTH OF THOSE LADIES, AND YOU WOULDN'T WANT TO RUN
  • 00:24:01.230 --> 00:24:04.170
  • INTO EITHER ONE OF THEM IN A DARK ALLEY LATE AT
  • 00:24:04.190 --> 00:24:07.040
  • NIGHT BECAUSE IF YOU TRIED TO SNATCH THEIR
  • 00:24:07.060 --> 00:24:08.250
  • PURSE YOU GONNA GET SNATCHED UP.
  • 00:24:08.270 --> 00:24:11.040
  • BUT I SAW EDDIE MURPHY DO HIS HAND AT PLAYING AN
  • 00:24:11.060 --> 00:24:14.200
  • OLD WOMAN IN THE CLUMPS, AND I SAID OKAY, I'M
  • 00:24:14.220 --> 00:24:17.090
  • GOING TO TRY MY HAND AT IT, AND THAT'S WHERE THIS
  • 00:24:17.110 --> 00:24:18.290
  • CHARACTER WAS BORN.
  • 00:24:19.010 --> 00:24:20.140
  • BUT THE POWER OF IT, AS SILLY AS IT IS, AS SILLY
  • 00:24:20.160 --> 00:24:22.210
  • AS IT IS THERE'S A POWER IN IT.
  • 00:24:22.230 --> 00:24:25.000
  • HERE'S THE POWER IN IT.
  • 00:24:25.020 --> 00:24:26.150
  • IT WAS THE ANESTHETIC THAT I USED TO MAKE
  • 00:24:26.170 --> 00:24:28.100
  • PEOPLE LAUGH TO GET TO SOME VERY SERIOUS
  • 00:24:28.120 --> 00:24:29.250
  • SUBJECT MATTER.
  • 00:24:29.270 --> 00:24:31.270
  • PEOPLE FOUND THEMSELVES COMING INTO THESE ARENAS
  • 00:24:31.290 --> 00:24:34.230
  • AND LAUGHING, LAUGHING REALLY HARD, AND THEN I
  • 00:24:34.250 --> 00:24:36.290
  • STARTED TALKING ABOUT FORGIVENESS.
  • 00:24:37.010 --> 00:24:38.230
  • THEY'RE LAUGHING REALLY HARD AND I'D TALK ABOUT
  • 00:24:38.250 --> 00:24:40.170
  • GETTING OVER PAIN AND MOLESTATION AND RAPE, ALL
  • 00:24:40.190 --> 00:24:42.110
  • THE THINGS THAT PLAGUE US AS A SOCIETY THAT WE WERE
  • 00:24:42.130 --> 00:24:44.230
  • IGNORING AND WEREN'T GETTING ANY ATTENTION.
  • 00:24:44.250 --> 00:24:47.150
  • SO I FOUND IF I CAN MAKE YOU LAUGH I CAN USE THIS
  • 00:24:47.170 --> 00:24:49.170
  • AS A TEACHABLE MOMENT.
  • 00:24:49.190 --> 00:24:52.050
  • SO IT BECAME VERY VERY IMPORTANT TO ME.
  • 00:24:52.070 --> 00:24:54.010
  • AS MUCH AS I DON'T LIKE DOING THE CHARACTER, I
  • 00:24:54.030 --> 00:24:55.220
  • REALIZE WHAT IT HAS DONE FOR MANY PEOPLE.
  • 00:24:55.240 --> 00:24:58.150
  • AND I GOT A LETTER FROM SOMEONE.
  • 00:24:58.170 --> 00:25:00.150
  • I GOT PLENTY OF THEM BUT THIS ONE WAS
  • 00:25:00.170 --> 00:25:01.290
  • REALLY POWERFUL.
  • 00:25:02.010 --> 00:25:03.190
  • IT WAS ABOUT A WOMAN WHO SAID SHE WAS GOING TO
  • 00:25:03.210 --> 00:25:04.260
  • COMMIT SUICIDE.
  • 00:25:04.280 --> 00:25:06.190
  • SO SHE GOT HER KIDS TOGETHER AND SHE WENT TO
  • 00:25:06.210 --> 00:25:08.290
  • A HOTEL AND SHE WANTED TO SPEND THE LAST DAY
  • 00:25:09.010 --> 00:25:10.160
  • WITH THEM.
  • 00:25:10.180 --> 00:25:12.010
  • SHE SAID, WE'RE GOING TO DO WHATEVER YOU GUYS WANT
  • 00:25:12.030 --> 00:25:13.200
  • TO DO.
  • 00:25:13.220 --> 00:25:15.100
  • WHATEVER YOU WANT TO DO WE'LL DO, AND SHE SENT ME
  • 00:25:15.120 --> 00:25:16.270
  • THIS LETTER.
  • 00:25:16.290 --> 00:25:18.180
  • THIS WAS BEFORE FACEBOOK AND ALL THESE OTHER
  • 00:25:18.200 --> 00:25:20.200
  • THINGS, AND SO I GET THIS LETTER, AND SHE'S TALKING
  • 00:25:20.220 --> 00:25:22.220
  • ABOUT WHAT THEY WANTED TO DO.
  • 00:25:22.240 --> 00:25:24.170
  • THEY DECIDED THEY WANTED TO SEE A TYLER PERRY PLAY.
  • 00:25:24.190 --> 00:25:26.120
  • SO SHE WENT AND FOUND ONE ON BOOTLEG.
  • 00:25:26.140 --> 00:25:28.170
  • SHE BROUGHT IT BACK TO THE HOTEL AND THEY
  • 00:25:28.190 --> 00:25:30.130
  • WATCHED IT.
  • 00:25:30.150 --> 00:25:31.180
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:25:31.200 --> 00:25:32.290
  • YEAH.
  • 00:25:33.010 --> 00:25:34.080
  • YEAH.
  • 00:25:34.100 --> 00:25:35.220
  • IT'S ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:25:35.240 --> 00:25:37.040
  • AND THEY WATCHED IT.
  • 00:25:37.060 --> 00:25:38.170
  • BUT Y'ALL DON'T BUY BOOTLEG, I KNOW.
  • 00:25:38.190 --> 00:25:40.080
  • I KNOW.
  • 00:25:40.100 --> 00:25:42.020
  • BUT THEY WATCHED IT AND WHAT HAPPENED WAS AS SHE
  • 00:25:42.040 --> 00:25:43.100
  • WAS WATCHING IT SHE STARTED TO LAUGH, AND SHE
  • 00:25:43.120 --> 00:25:44.140
  • STARTED TO BE HEALED.
  • 00:25:44.160 --> 00:25:45.210
  • AND SHE SENT ME THIS LETTER SAYING I NO LONGER
  • 00:25:45.230 --> 00:25:47.010
  • I WANT TO DIE.
  • 00:25:47.030 --> 00:25:48.100
  • I FEEL LIKE I CAN LIVE AND MANUFACTURE ON AFTER
  • 00:25:48.120 --> 00:25:49.110
  • SEEING THIS PLAY.
  • 00:25:49.130 --> 00:25:50.180
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:25:50.200 --> 00:25:52.020
  • - LAST THING, TYLER, AND I'LL STEP DOWN AND I WANT
  • 00:25:52.040 --> 00:25:53.180
  • TO TURN IT OVER TO YOU FOR YOUR MESSAGE, BUT
  • 00:25:53.200 --> 00:25:55.160
  • WE'RE ALL TRYING TO REACH DREAMS TODAY AND IT'S NOT
  • 00:25:55.180 --> 00:25:57.080
  • EASY, AND YOU'VE HIT THE SUCCESS BUT GIVE US
  • 00:25:57.100 --> 00:25:58.260
  • SOME ENCOURAGEMENT.
  • 00:25:58.280 --> 00:26:01.270
  • WHAT'S A FINAL THOUGHT FOR US FROM THIS?
  • 00:26:01.290 --> 00:26:04.290
  • - DON'T GIVE UP.
  • 00:26:05.010 --> 00:26:06.240
  • I KNOW IT SOUNDS SIMPLE, BUT DON'T GIVE UP.
  • 00:26:06.260 --> 00:26:10.060
  • IF YOU GO TO BED WITH IT AND YOU WAKE UP WITH IT
  • 00:26:10.080 --> 00:26:12.120
  • AND YOU CAN'T SHAKE IT, YOU GO GET A JOB AND THAT
  • 00:26:12.140 --> 00:26:15.260
  • DREAM IS STILL IN THE BACK OF YOUR HEAD, YOU'RE
  • 00:26:15.280 --> 00:26:17.290
  • WORKING FOR SOMEBODY ELSE, BUT THAT DREAM IS
  • 00:26:18.010 --> 00:26:20.260
  • STILL IN THE BACK OF YOUR HEAD, YOU'RE GETTING UP
  • 00:26:20.280 --> 00:26:23.070
  • EVERY MORNING, FIVE IN THE MORNING GOING ON
  • 00:26:23.090 --> 00:26:24.230
  • SOMEBODY ELSE'S JOB, LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING
  • 00:26:24.250 --> 00:26:26.230
  • HONOR THAT PERSON THAT YOU'RE WORKING FOR.
  • 00:26:26.250 --> 00:26:28.020
  • LISTEN.
  • 00:26:28.040 --> 00:26:29.110
  • LISTEN, BECAUSE WHEN YOU'RE FAITHFUL OVER
  • 00:26:29.130 --> 00:26:31.080
  • SOMEONE ELSE'S, GOD WILL GIVE YOU YOUR OWN, SO
  • 00:26:31.100 --> 00:26:32.250
  • MAKE SURE YOU HONOR THE PERSON THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:26:32.270 --> 00:26:34.080
  • WORKING FOR.
  • 00:26:34.100 --> 00:26:36.100
  • BUT AT THE SAME TIME DON'T GIVE UP.
  • 00:26:36.120 --> 00:26:38.220
  • AND THE MANTRA AT THE STUDIO, MY STUDIO IS A
  • 00:26:38.240 --> 00:26:40.090
  • PLACE WHERE EVEN DREAMS BELIEVE BECAUSE WHEN I
  • 00:26:40.110 --> 00:26:42.010
  • THINK ABOUT JOSEPH, HE WENT THROUGH SO MUCH

  • 00:39:35.030 --> 00:39:36.240
  • AND THE ANGEL OF THE LORD CALLED UNTO HIM FROM
  • 00:39:36.260 --> 00:39:38.110
  • HEAVEN AND SAID, 'ABRAHAM, ABRAHAM?'
  • 00:39:38.130 --> 00:39:40.160
  • AND HE SAID,'HERE AM I.' AND HE SAID,
  • 00:39:40.180 --> 00:39:42.110
  • 'LAY NOT THINE HAND UPON THY LAD.
  • 00:39:42.130 --> 00:39:44.150
  • NEITHER DO THOU ANYTHING UNTO HIM FOR NOW I KNOW
  • 00:39:44.170 --> 00:39:47.050
  • THAT THOU FEAREST GOD SEEING THOU HAST NOT
  • 00:39:47.070 --> 00:39:50.010
  • WITHHELD THY SON, THINE ONLY SON.' AND ABRAHAM
  • 00:39:50.030 --> 00:39:54.070
  • LIFTED UP HIS EYES AND LOOKED AND BEHOLD BEHIND
  • 00:39:54.090 --> 00:39:56.170
  • HIM, A RAM CAUGHT IN THE THICKET BY ITS HORNS.
  • 00:39:56.190 --> 00:39:59.290
  • AND ABRAHAM WENT AND TOOK THE RAM AND OFFERED HIM
  • 00:40:00.010 --> 00:40:02.150
  • UP FOR A BURNT OFFERING INSTEAD OF HIS SON.
  • 00:40:02.170 --> 00:40:05.290
  • AND ABRAHAM CALLED THE PLACE JEHOVAH JIREH, AS
  • 00:40:06.010 --> 00:40:08.250
  • IT IS SAID TO THIS DAY, IN THE MOUNT OF THE LORD,
  • 00:40:08.270 --> 00:40:12.170
  • IT SHALL BE SEEN."
  • 00:40:12.190 --> 00:40:16.050
  • TODAY, I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT ANXIETY, ANXIETY.
  • 00:40:16.070 --> 00:40:21.010
  • I LOOK AT THIS SCRIPTURE, AND I SEE ISAAC WHO IS A
  • 00:40:21.030 --> 00:40:24.250
  • YOUNG MAN AT THE TIME.
  • 00:40:24.270 --> 00:40:26.090
  • THEOLOGIANS AND HISTORIANS SAY HE'S ABOUT
  • 00:40:26.110 --> 00:40:27.290
  • 13, FROM 13 INTO HIS 20'S, AND HE IS WALKING
  • 00:40:28.010 --> 00:40:31.080
  • UP TO A HIGHER PLACE WITH THIS FATHER, HIS FATHER,
  • 00:40:31.100 --> 00:40:36.180
  • A MAN THAT HE TRUSTS, THAT HE LOVES, THAT HE RESPECTS.
  • 00:40:36.200 --> 00:40:42.040
  • HIS FATHER IS LEADING HIM TO A HIGHER PLACE, AND AS
  • 00:40:42.060 --> 00:40:46.060
  • HE'S WALKING UP, ISAAC SAYS, ABRAHAM, DADDY,
  • 00:40:46.080 --> 00:40:51.190
  • FATHER, I SEE THE BURNT OFFERING.
  • 00:40:51.210 --> 00:40:56.240
  • I SEE THE WOOD, SORRY, I SEE THE WOOD, I SEE THE
  • 00:40:56.260 --> 00:40:59.130
  • FIRE, BUT WHERE IS THE OFFERING?
  • 00:40:59.150 --> 00:41:02.110
  • MEANING I SEE THE KNIFE, I SEE THE WOOD, I SEE ALL
  • 00:41:02.130 --> 00:41:05.020
  • THE TOOLS FOR A SACRIFICE, BUT WHERE IS
  • 00:41:05.040 --> 00:41:06.260
  • THE SACRIFICE ITSELF?
  • 00:41:06.280 --> 00:41:10.170
  • I SEE THE KNIFE, I SEE THE WOOD, I SEE THE FIRE,
  • 00:41:10.190 --> 00:41:15.180
  • BUT WHERE IS THE SACRIFICE?
  • 00:41:15.200 --> 00:41:17.250
  • HE'S GOT ANXIETY ABOUT IT. I CAN IMAGINE.
  • 00:41:17.270 --> 00:41:19.270
  • HE'S GOT ANXIETY LIKE WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?
  • 00:41:19.290 --> 00:41:21.220
  • WE'RE GOING UP TO THIS PLACE, AND I SEE ALL
  • 00:41:21.240 --> 00:41:24.050
  • THESE THINGS THAT ARE ABOUT TO TAKE ME OUT OF
  • 00:41:24.070 --> 00:41:26.070
  • HERE, OR COULD TAKE ME OUT OF HERE, OR COULD
  • 00:41:26.090 --> 00:41:28.260
  • TAKE THE OFFERING FOR THE ANIMAL OUT OF HERE,
  • 00:41:28.280 --> 00:41:31.040
  • BUT WHY ARE WE IN THIS MOMENT?
  • 00:41:31.060 --> 00:41:33.060
  • SO I WANTED TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT ANXIETY.
  • 00:41:33.080 --> 00:41:36.030
  • THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE DEALING WITH THINGS,
  • 00:41:36.050 --> 00:41:39.060
  • WALKING THROUGH SITUATIONS IN THIS LIFE;
  • 00:41:39.080 --> 00:41:41.090
  • YOU'RE MARRIED, THINGS ARE GOING GREAT,
  • 00:41:41.110 --> 00:41:43.230
  • THEN ALL OF THE SUDDEN, SOMETHING HAPPENS.
  • 00:41:43.250 --> 00:41:46.270
  • A PERSON WANTS A DIVORCE, YOU THOUGHT YOU WOULD
  • 00:41:46.290 --> 00:41:49.070
  • LIVE YOUR LIFE FOREVER WITH THIS PERSON, AND ALL
  • 00:41:49.090 --> 00:41:51.150
  • OF THE SUDDEN, THE VERY PERSON THAT YOU THOUGHT
  • 00:41:51.170 --> 00:41:53.120
  • WOULD BE THERE FOREVER IS ABOUT TO LEAVE, AND YOU
  • 00:41:53.140 --> 00:41:55.040
  • SEE THE KNIFE, YOU SEE THE WOOD, YOU SEE THE
  • 00:41:55.060 --> 00:41:58.270
  • FIRE, BUT YOU'RE WONDERING, ARE YOU THE SACRIFICE?
  • 00:41:58.290 --> 00:42:01.060
  • YOU'VE GOT CHILDREN THAT YOU'RE RAISING, AND
  • 00:42:01.080 --> 00:42:04.250
  • EVERYTHING SEEMED TO BE FINE WHEN THEY WERE
  • 00:42:04.270 --> 00:42:06.190
  • YOUNGER, BUT NOW THEY'RE AT A PLACE WHERE THEY'RE
  • 00:42:06.210 --> 00:42:08.130
  • A LITTLE BIT OLDER, AND THEY'RE DOING THINGS THAT
  • 00:42:08.150 --> 00:42:09.280
  • YOU COULDN'T EVEN IMAGINE, AND YOU'RE WORRIED.
  • 00:42:10.000 --> 00:42:12.130
  • THEY'VE GOT ADDICTIONS.
  • 00:42:12.150 --> 00:42:14.000
  • THEY'VE GOT THINGS GOING ON, AND YOU'RE WONDERING,
  • 00:42:14.020 --> 00:42:15.290
  • GOD, WHAT IS GOING ON?
  • 00:42:16.010 --> 00:42:17.210
  • YOU SEE THE KNIFE, YOU SEE THE WOOD, YOU SEE THE
  • 00:42:17.230 --> 00:42:20.180
  • FIRE, BUT WHERE IS THE SACRIFICE?
  • 00:42:20.200 --> 00:42:22.170
  • THOSE DREAMERS IN HERE WHO ARE TRYING TO
  • 00:42:22.190 --> 00:42:24.040
  • BUILD A DREAM.
  • 00:42:24.060 --> 00:42:26.010
  • EVERYTHING SEEMS TO BE GOING FINE, AND ALL OF
  • 00:42:26.030 --> 00:42:27.230
  • THE SUDDEN YOU HEAR SOMETHING. THERE'S A RUMBLING.
  • 00:42:27.250 --> 00:42:29.150
  • SOMETHING IS HAPPENING THAT IS TRYING TO DISTRACT YOU.
  • 00:42:29.170 --> 00:42:32.050
  • YOU SEE THE KNIFE. YOU SEE THE WOOD. YOU SEE THE FIRE.
  • 00:42:32.070 --> 00:42:34.160
  • YOU'VE GOT ANXIETY. YOU CAN'T SLEEP.
  • 00:42:34.180 --> 00:42:37.290
  • YOU'RE TOSSING AND TURNING ALL NIGHT
  • 00:42:38.010 --> 00:42:39.250
  • LONG WONDERING WHAT IS GOING ON.
  • 00:42:39.270 --> 00:42:41.150
  • GOD, WHAT IS GOING ON IN THIS MOMENT?
  • 00:42:41.170 --> 00:42:43.190
  • WHAT IS GOING ON? WHAT IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW?
  • 00:42:43.210 --> 00:42:45.150
  • I'VE BEEN THERE.
  • 00:42:45.170 --> 00:42:47.140
  • IT'S A VERY DIFFICULT PLACE WHEN YOU KNOW THAT
  • 00:42:47.160 --> 00:42:49.170
  • YOU'VE GOT ANXIETY ALL OVER YOU.
  • 00:42:49.190 --> 00:42:52.060
  • SO AS I LOOK AT THIS TEXT, AND I SEE ISAAC
  • 00:42:52.080 --> 00:42:57.090
  • WONDERING IS HE THE SACRIFICE?
  • 00:42:57.110 --> 00:43:00.150
  • I CAME HERE TO TELL YOU SOME GOOD NEWS.
  • 00:43:00.170 --> 00:43:04.220
  • IF YOU ARE IN THIS PLACE, AND YOU ARE WONDERING IF
  • 00:43:04.240 --> 00:43:06.260
  • YOU ARE THE SACRIFICE, I CAME TO TELL YOU THAT YOU
  • 00:43:06.280 --> 00:43:09.130
  • ARE NOT. YOU ARE NOT THE SACRIFICE.
  • 00:43:09.150 --> 00:43:12.180
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:43:12.200 --> 00:43:14.240
  • GOD DID NOT BRING YOU THIS FAR TO
  • 00:43:14.260 --> 00:43:16.170
  • LEAVE YOU. YOU ARE NOT ABOUT TO DIE.
  • 00:43:16.190 --> 00:43:18.080
  • YOU ARE ABOUT NOT TO LOSE EVERYTHING.
  • 00:43:18.100 --> 00:43:20.080
  • YOU ARE NOT THE SACRIFICE.
  • 00:43:20.100 --> 00:43:22.280
  • HOW DO I KNOW THAT?
  • 00:43:23.000 --> 00:43:24.210
  • IN THE VERY NEXT VERSE, ABRAHAM ANSWERS ISAAC.
  • 00:43:24.230 --> 00:43:28.100
  • HE SAYS, GOD HIMSELF WILL PROVIDE THE SACRIFICE.
  • 00:43:28.120 --> 00:43:34.040
  • SO HERE IN THIS MOMENT IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, THEY
  • 00:43:34.060 --> 00:43:36.150
  • ARE UNDER THE LAW, SO THEY NEEDED THE BLOOD OF
  • 00:43:36.170 --> 00:43:38.260
  • A LAMB FOR THE ATONEMENT OF SIN.
  • 00:43:38.280 --> 00:43:40.270
  • US TODAY, WE ARE UNDER GRACE, SO THE BLOOD OF
  • 00:43:40.290 --> 00:43:44.040
  • JESUS ATONES FOR OUR SINS.
  • 00:43:44.060 --> 00:43:46.200
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:43:46.220 --> 00:43:48.160
  • SO JESUS WAS ALREADY THE SACRIFICE, SO LET ME
  • 00:43:48.180 --> 00:43:50.270
  • ASK YOU SOMETHING.
  • 00:43:50.290 --> 00:43:52.230
  • SINCE GOD HIMSELF PROVIDED THE SACRIFICE
  • 00:43:52.250 --> 00:43:55.060
  • AND WAS THE SACRIFICE, WHY ARE YOU HAVING SO
  • 00:43:55.080 --> 00:43:57.280
  • MUCH ANXIETY NAILING YOURSELF TO A CROSS THAT
  • 00:43:58.000 --> 00:44:00.080
  • JESUS HAS ALREADY RISEN FROM?
  • 00:44:00.100 --> 00:44:02.050
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:44:02.070 --> 00:44:07.190
  • WHAT DO YOU DO IN THIS MOMENT, THOUGH, NOW THAT
  • 00:44:07.210 --> 00:44:09.200
  • YOU KNOW THAT YOU'RE NOT THE SACRIFICE?
  • 00:44:09.220 --> 00:44:11.060
  • WHAT DO YOU DO? HOW DO YOU GET PAST IT?
  • 00:44:11.080 --> 00:44:13.140
  • HOW DO YOU GET PAST THIS ANXIETY?
  • 00:44:13.160 --> 00:44:15.070
  • HOW DO YOU REST? HOW DO YOU HAVE PEACE?
  • 00:44:15.090 --> 00:44:17.070
  • HOW DO YOU -- WHAT DO YOU DO?
  • 00:44:17.090 --> 00:44:19.150
  • AND THAT IS IN THE SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:44:19.170 --> 00:44:21.060
  • FOR ME AS I WAS READING, THIS IS WHAT MADE ME
  • 00:44:21.080 --> 00:44:23.020
  • THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:44:23.040 --> 00:44:25.120
  • ABRAHAM TELLS THE SERVANTS, STAY HERE, AND
  • 00:44:25.140 --> 00:44:27.160
  • ME AND ISAAC ARE GOING TO GO UP AND WORSHIP.
  • 00:44:27.180 --> 00:44:31.220
  • HE SAW A MOUNTAIN THAT GOD HAD LED HIM TO,
  • 00:44:31.240 --> 00:44:33.230
  • SO HE WAS GOING TO GO UP AND WORSHIP.
  • 00:44:33.250 --> 00:44:36.000
  • SO THEY WERE GOING TO CLIMB.
  • 00:44:36.020 --> 00:44:38.200
  • THEY WERE GOING TO GO UP, AND THEY WERE GOING TO
  • 00:44:38.220 --> 00:44:41.290
  • CLIMB, AND THEY WERE GOING TO MAINTAIN.
  • 00:44:42.010 --> 00:44:44.020
  • THEY WERE GOING TO WORSHIP.
  • 00:44:44.040 --> 00:44:45.260
  • CLIMB AND MAINTAIN.
  • 00:44:45.280 --> 00:44:48.090
  • THE CLIMBING IS THE PRAYER, AND THE
  • 00:44:48.110 --> 00:44:50.020
  • WORSHIP IS MAINTAINING.
  • 00:44:50.040 --> 00:44:52.020
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:44:52.040 --> 00:44:55.130
  • SO WHAT DO YOU DO WITH ANXIETY?
  • 00:44:55.150 --> 00:44:57.120
  • YOU CLIMB AND MAINTAIN.
  • 00:44:57.140 --> 00:45:00.150
  • IT'S TURBULENT, YOU GO HIGHER.
  • 00:45:00.170 --> 00:45:02.150
  • YOU CLIMB, YOU PRAY. YOU MAINTAIN. YOU WORSHIP.
  • 00:45:02.170 --> 00:45:05.170
  • YOU PRAY, AND YOU WORSHIP.
  • 00:45:05.190 --> 00:45:07.100
  • YOU CLIMB, AND MAINTAIN. YOU PRAY AND WORSHIP.
  • 00:45:07.120 --> 00:45:10.070
  • YOU CLIMB AND MAINTAIN. YOU PRAY AND WORSHIP. LISTEN TO ME.
  • 00:45:10.090 --> 00:45:14.140
  • TURN TO SOMEBODY RIGHT NOW AND TELL THEM YOU ARE
  • 00:45:14.160 --> 00:45:16.270
  • NOT THE SACRIFICE.
  • 00:45:16.290 --> 00:45:18.190
  • [AUDIENCE RESPONDS] I WANT TO TELL YOU SOME,
