  • - I WANT CHRISTIANS TO STOP LIVING WITH GOD AS A CONCEPT.
  • 00:00:07.060 --> 00:00:10.070
  • I WANT HIM TO BE REAL TO THEM.
  • 00:00:10.100 --> 00:00:12.220
  • COMING UP. AFTER NEARLY DESTROYING
  • 00:00:12.250 --> 00:00:14.230
  • HER MARRIAGE, KASEY VAN NORMAN SHARES
  • 00:00:14.260 --> 00:00:16.260
  • THAT NO PART OF OUR LIFE STORY IS WASTED.
  • 00:00:16.290 --> 00:00:19.190
  • - I NEEDED TO EXPERIENCE THE BROKENNESS AND THE SORROW
  • 00:00:19.220 --> 00:00:23.020
  • OF MY SIN BECAUSE THAT IS WHERE HEALING IS.
  • 00:00:23.050 --> 00:00:25.170
  • BECAUSE I'M SPEAKING TO CHRISTIANS WHO FEEL DISCONNECTED
  • 00:00:25.200 --> 00:00:29.030
  • IN SOME WAY TO THE LORD BECAUSE OF THEIR PAST.
  • 00:00:29.060 --> 00:00:32.070
  • NOTHING WASTED -- NEXT ON LIFE TODAY!
  • 00:00:32.100 --> 00:00:36.090
  • 00:00:39.140 --> 00:00:46.110
  • James: Y'ALL ARE GOOD.
  • 00:01:00.260 --> 00:01:03.260
  • WELCOME! WELCOME TO YOU.
  • 00:01:03.260 --> 00:01:05.120
  • JAMES ROBISON HERE,
  • 00:01:05.120 --> 00:01:06.160
  • AND MY WIFE BETTY,
  • 00:01:06.160 --> 00:01:08.110
  • ANNIVERSARY 57!
  • 00:01:12.100 --> 00:01:15.100
  • HARD TO BELIEVE; ISN'T IT?
  • 00:01:15.100 --> 00:01:17.010
  • Betty: WE WERE JUST CHILDREN
  • 00:01:17.010 --> 00:01:18.060
  • WHEN WE GOT MARRIED.
  • 00:01:18.060 --> 00:01:19.130
  • James: WE WERE JUST KIDS.
  • 00:01:19.130 --> 00:01:20.260
  • STILL ARE. WE'RE STILL KIDS.
  • 00:01:20.260 --> 00:01:22.210
  • THIS IS AN AMAZING JOURNEY.
  • 00:01:22.210 --> 00:01:25.150
  • YOU DON'T CALL IT LIKE
  • 00:01:25.150 --> 00:01:28.000
  • THE KIND OF JOURNEY
  • 00:01:28.000 --> 00:01:29.020
  • MOST PEOPLE WANT BUT
  • 00:01:29.040 --> 00:01:32.040
  • THE TITLE KIND OF SUMMARIZES
  • 00:01:32.110 --> 00:01:35.110
  • REALITY, NOTHING WASTED:
  • 00:01:37.200 --> 00:01:40.200
  • GOD USES THE STUFF
  • 00:01:40.200 --> 00:01:42.000
  • YOU WOULDN'T.
  • 00:01:42.000 --> 00:01:44.190
  • KASEY HAS BEEN THROUGH
  • 00:01:44.190 --> 00:01:46.050
  • A LOT OF STUFF.
  • 00:01:46.050 --> 00:01:47.120
  • SHE'S BEEN THROUGH CANCER.
  • 00:01:47.120 --> 00:01:49.040
  • MIRACLE!
  • 00:01:49.040 --> 00:01:50.180
  • KIND OF TOLD HER STORY HERE.
  • 00:01:50.180 --> 00:01:52.000
  • SHE'S BEEN THROUGH REAL
  • 00:01:52.000 --> 00:01:53.150
  • CHALLENGES IN HER LIFE.
  • 00:01:53.150 --> 00:01:55.240
  • AND THEN IN MARRIAGE SHE...
  • 00:01:55.240 --> 00:01:58.100
  • LET'S JUST FACE IT,
  • 00:01:58.100 --> 00:01:59.160
  • SHE TELLS YOU SHE COULD
  • 00:01:59.160 --> 00:02:01.140
  • HAVE WASTED EVERYTHING.
  • 00:02:01.140 --> 00:02:03.190
  • YOU MIGHT SAY IF YOU GET
  • 00:02:03.190 --> 00:02:04.280
  • REAL HONEST ABOUT IT,
  • 00:02:04.280 --> 00:02:06.060
  • WHICH SHE IS TOTALLY HONEST,
  • 00:02:06.060 --> 00:02:08.110
  • SHE MADE A MESS THAT ONLY GOD
  • 00:02:08.110 --> 00:02:10.200
  • COULD PROVE THE TRUTH OF THAT.
  • 00:02:10.240 --> 00:02:13.240
  • WOULD YOU WELCOME KASEY
  • 00:02:13.240 --> 00:02:15.220
  • VAN NORMAN TO LIFE TODAY ?
  • 00:02:15.220 --> 00:02:17.040
  • KASEY, GOOD TO SEE YOU.
  • 00:02:17.240 --> 00:02:20.240
  • Kasey: THANK YOU.
  • 00:02:20.240 --> 00:02:22.080
  • James: A LOT OF STORY HERE.
  • 00:02:22.080 --> 00:02:25.030
  • IT'S CAPTIVATING
  • 00:02:25.030 --> 00:02:26.240
  • SO PEOPLE GET INTO IT
  • 00:02:26.240 --> 00:02:28.210
  • IT'S GOING TO CARRY THEM.
  • 00:02:28.210 --> 00:02:29.210
  • SO YOU GOT A ROUGH START.
  • 00:02:29.210 --> 00:02:31.290
  • IT KIND OF PROBABLY SET THE
  • 00:02:31.290 --> 00:02:33.010
  • STAGE FOR SOME VULNERABILITY
  • 00:02:33.010 --> 00:02:35.240
  • AND SOME INAPPROPRIATE ACTION
  • 00:02:35.240 --> 00:02:38.140
  • BUT THEN YOU GOT
  • 00:02:38.140 --> 00:02:39.270
  • IN A MARRIAGE, AND THEN
  • 00:02:39.270 --> 00:02:41.080
  • INAPPROPRIATE ACTION
  • 00:02:41.080 --> 00:02:42.180
  • CAME AGAIN.
  • 00:02:42.180 --> 00:02:44.110
  • SO IT LOOKS LIKE YOU WERE
  • 00:02:44.110 --> 00:02:45.260
  • PRETTY WELL DIGGING
  • 00:02:45.260 --> 00:02:47.130
  • AN IMPOSSIBLE SITUATION.
  • 00:02:47.160 --> 00:02:50.160
  • THIS MESSAGE IS
  • 00:02:51.290 --> 00:02:53.070
  • SO IMPORTANT TO ME
  • 00:02:53.070 --> 00:02:54.180
  • BECAUSE OUR GOD IS SUCH
  • 00:02:54.180 --> 00:02:56.130
  • AN INTENTIONAL GOD
  • 00:02:56.130 --> 00:02:58.070
  • OF OUR LIFE, OF OUR PAST.
  • 00:03:00.080 --> 00:03:02.100
  • IT'S MEANINGFUL.
  • 00:03:02.100 --> 00:03:03.140
  • IT'S INTENTIONAL.
  • 00:03:03.140 --> 00:03:04.130
  • IT'S PURPOSEFUL.
  • 00:03:04.130 --> 00:03:05.240
  • I THINK OF ANYONE WHO WOULD
  • 00:03:05.240 --> 00:03:08.030
  • WANT TO DISMISS THEIR PAST
  • 00:03:08.030 --> 00:03:09.250
  • OR DISCONNECT THEMSELVES
  • 00:03:09.250 --> 00:03:11.110
  • FROM THEIR PAST EXPERIENCES
  • 00:03:11.110 --> 00:03:12.200
  • IN RELATIONSHIPS
  • 00:03:12.200 --> 00:03:13.290
  • AND YET, I FOUND THE GREATEST
  • 00:03:15.070 --> 00:03:16.160
  • SENSE OF FREEDOM AND PEACE,
  • 00:03:16.160 --> 00:03:19.060
  • AND REALLY THE REALITY OF GOD
  • 00:03:19.060 --> 00:03:21.170
  • OF ME, EVEN THE WORST PARTS
  • 00:03:23.180 --> 00:03:26.020
  • OF ME, EVEN THE BORING
  • 00:03:26.020 --> 00:03:27.250
  • AVERAGE PARTS OF ME,
  • 00:03:27.250 --> 00:03:30.000
  • THE PARTS THAT I DIDN'T
  • 00:03:30.000 --> 00:03:31.100
  • WANT TO LOOK AT,
  • 00:03:31.100 --> 00:03:32.160
  • THAT I DIDN'T WANT
  • 00:03:32.160 --> 00:03:33.200
  • TO TAKE OWNERSHIP OF.
  • 00:03:33.200 --> 00:03:34.270
  • AND WHEN I FINALLY, TRULY
  • 00:03:34.270 --> 00:03:36.260
  • ALLOWED ALL OF THOSE PIECES
  • 00:03:36.260 --> 00:03:38.120
  • TO BECOME A PART OF MY STORY,
  • 00:03:38.120 --> 00:03:40.070
  • I COULD SEE GOD WORKING
  • 00:03:40.070 --> 00:03:41.270
  • TO DRAW ME TO HIMSELF
  • 00:03:41.270 --> 00:03:43.250
  • IN ALL THESE THINGS.
  • 00:03:43.250 --> 00:03:45.290
  • THINGS LIKE A BROKEN HOME
  • 00:03:45.290 --> 00:03:48.280
  • AND A REALLY CHAOTIC,
  • 00:03:48.280 --> 00:03:50.080
  • DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY,
  • 00:03:50.080 --> 00:03:52.000
  • AND A FATHER WHO LEFT;
  • 00:03:52.150 --> 00:03:55.150
  • THINGS THAT I THINK
  • 00:03:55.150 --> 00:03:56.230
  • UNFORTUNATELY ARE SUCH
  • 00:03:56.230 --> 00:03:58.020
  • A COMMON STORY NOW.
  • 00:03:58.020 --> 00:03:59.130
  • James: FROM YOUR CHILDHOOD?
  • 00:03:59.130 --> 00:04:00.240
  • Kasey: FROM MY CHILDHOOD.
  • 00:04:00.240 --> 00:04:03.160
  • I GREW UP IN THE BIBLE BELT
  • 00:04:03.160 --> 00:04:04.280
  • OF THE WORLD, EAST TEXAS.
  • 00:04:04.280 --> 00:04:06.190
  • SO IT IS REALLY COOL
  • 00:04:06.190 --> 00:04:07.260
  • TO BE A CHRISTIAN, AND EASY
  • 00:04:07.260 --> 00:04:09.030
  • TO BE A CHRISTIAN AND THAT'S,
  • 00:04:09.030 --> 00:04:10.150
  • IN AND OF ITSELF CAN BE
  • 00:04:10.150 --> 00:04:11.270
  • A DRUG, GOING TO CHURCH,
  • 00:04:11.270 --> 00:04:13.130
  • RELIGION, DOING THE THINGS
  • 00:04:13.130 --> 00:04:14.210
  • OF GOD THAT
  • 00:04:14.210 --> 00:04:15.270
  • WE COMPLETELY MISS GOD.
  • 00:04:15.270 --> 00:04:18.190
  • I HAD THIS REALLY BIG MOMENT,
  • 00:04:18.190 --> 00:04:20.220
  • THIS CRUX OF MY LIFE STORY
  • 00:04:20.220 --> 00:04:22.080
  • WHEN I WAS 15 YEARS OLD
  • 00:04:22.080 --> 00:04:24.050
  • BECAUSE I WAS REALLY CLINGING
  • 00:04:24.050 --> 00:04:25.160
  • AT EVERYTHING TO MAKE SENSE
  • 00:04:25.160 --> 00:04:27.260
  • OF GOD AND MAKE SENSE
  • 00:04:27.260 --> 00:04:29.120
  • OF WHY I FELT THIS DEEP
  • 00:04:29.120 --> 00:04:31.100
  • SELF-LOATHING, REJECTION,
  • 00:04:31.100 --> 00:04:33.140
  • ABANDONMENT, WHY I WASN'T
  • 00:04:33.140 --> 00:04:34.280
  • ENOUGH, WHY I...
  • 00:04:34.280 --> 00:04:36.040
  • I HAD ALL THOSE QUESTIONS
  • 00:04:36.040 --> 00:04:37.080
  • FOR GOD.
  • 00:04:37.080 --> 00:04:38.260
  • I'LL NEVER FORGET
  • 00:04:38.260 --> 00:04:40.020
  • I WAS 15 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:04:40.020 --> 00:04:41.100
  • I WENT TO A "TRUE LOVE WAITS"
  • 00:04:41.100 --> 00:04:42.120
  • CONFERENCE.
  • 00:04:42.120 --> 00:04:43.150
  • THAT WAS A BIG THING
  • 00:04:43.150 --> 00:04:44.220
  • BACK IN THE '90s
  • 00:04:44.220 --> 00:04:47.050
  • IT'S A LITTLE IRONIC BECAUSE
  • 00:04:47.050 --> 00:04:48.080
  • THEY PLACE ABOUT SEVEN BOYS
  • 00:04:48.080 --> 00:04:50.130
  • THAT LOOK LIKE JUSTIN BIEBER
  • 00:04:50.130 --> 00:04:51.260
  • ON THE STAGE AND THEY SAY,
  • 00:04:51.260 --> 00:04:53.080
  • "DON'T HAVE SEX
  • 00:04:53.080 --> 00:04:54.110
  • WITH THESE GUYS."
  • 00:04:54.110 --> 00:04:55.250
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:04:55.250 --> 00:04:58.070
  • YOU WALK FORWARD
  • 00:04:58.070 --> 00:04:59.170
  • AND YOU GET THIS RING
  • 00:04:59.170 --> 00:05:00.290
  • AND IT IS TO SIGNIFY
  • 00:05:00.290 --> 00:05:02.070
  • YOUR PURITY AND THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:05:02.070 --> 00:05:03.170
  • GOING TO KEEP YOURSELF PURE
  • 00:05:03.170 --> 00:05:04.230
  • UNTIL YOU'RE MARRIED.
  • 00:05:04.230 --> 00:05:06.160
  • THAT MOMENT I REMEMBER
  • 00:05:06.160 --> 00:05:07.210
  • WALKING FORWARD, SMOKE
  • 00:05:07.210 --> 00:05:09.160
  • AND THE GUYS WITH THEIR HAIR
  • 00:05:09.160 --> 00:05:10.210
  • AND EVERYTHING,
  • 00:05:10.210 --> 00:05:12.270
  • AND REALLY MEANING IT.
  • 00:05:12.270 --> 00:05:14.100
  • REALLY MEANING IT AT 15,
  • 00:05:14.100 --> 00:05:16.000
  • AS MUCH AS I KNEW IN MY HEART
  • 00:05:16.000 --> 00:05:17.290
  • THAT I WAS GOING TO PROMISE
  • 00:05:17.290 --> 00:05:19.040
  • MY PURITY TO THE LORD.
  • 00:05:19.040 --> 00:05:22.030
  • AND ABOUT THREE MONTHS AFTER
  • 00:05:22.030 --> 00:05:23.200
  • THAT CONFERENCE I WAS MOLESTED
  • 00:05:23.200 --> 00:05:26.050
  • AND RAPED BY AN OLDER MAN.
  • 00:05:26.050 --> 00:05:29.010
  • AND THAT'S NOT SO MUCH
  • 00:05:29.010 --> 00:05:31.030
  • THE STORY AS IS WHAT
  • 00:05:31.030 --> 00:05:33.100
  • TOOK PLACE AFTER THAT AND
  • 00:05:33.100 --> 00:05:34.280
  • THIS WOUNDING THAT MANIFESTED
  • 00:05:34.280 --> 00:05:36.130
  • ITSELF IN MY HEART
  • 00:05:36.130 --> 00:05:38.220
  • AND IN MY MIND.
  • 00:05:38.220 --> 00:05:40.230
  • AND TO REALLY THINK THAT
  • 00:05:40.230 --> 00:05:42.160
  • YOU ARE NOT USEFUL BUT THEN
  • 00:05:42.210 --> 00:05:45.210
  • OF THAT, FEELING SO UNWORTHY
  • 00:05:49.210 --> 00:05:52.210
  • AND SO USELESS AND
  • 00:05:52.210 --> 00:05:54.250
  • THAT DID A NUMBER IN MY HEART
  • 00:05:57.260 --> 00:05:59.280
  • AND SOUL AS IT WOULD FOR
  • 00:05:59.280 --> 00:06:01.090
  • ANYONE AND HAS FOR SO MANY.
  • 00:06:01.220 --> 00:06:04.220
  • I JUST USED EVERYTHING.
  • 00:06:04.220 --> 00:06:06.080
  • EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO
  • 00:06:06.080 --> 00:06:07.150
  • IMAGINE, BOUGHT THE T-SHIRT,
  • 00:06:07.150 --> 00:06:09.010
  • WENT TO THE CONCERT,
  • 00:06:09.010 --> 00:06:11.000
  • I DID JUST TO TRY TO NUMB
  • 00:06:11.000 --> 00:06:12.070
  • THAT INCLUDING CHURCH.
  • 00:06:12.080 --> 00:06:15.080
  • I JUST LEARNED TO PLAY
  • 00:06:15.080 --> 00:06:16.200
  • THIS PART.
  • 00:06:16.200 --> 00:06:18.080
  • BECAUSE I WAS REALLY IN LOVE
  • 00:06:18.080 --> 00:06:19.150
  • WITH A LIE, I TALK ABOUT
  • 00:06:19.150 --> 00:06:21.050
  • THAT A LOT IN THE BOOK
  • 00:06:21.050 --> 00:06:22.180
  • IS HOW WE CAN BECOME
  • 00:06:22.180 --> 00:06:23.210
  • REALLY CONSUMED WITH THE LIE
  • 00:06:23.210 --> 00:06:24.280
  • BECAUSE WE PLACED SO MUCH
  • 00:06:24.280 --> 00:06:26.040
  • OF OUR RESOURCES AND
  • 00:06:26.040 --> 00:06:27.050
  • OUR TIME AND OUR ENERGY
  • 00:06:27.050 --> 00:06:28.110
  • INTO THIS THING.
  • 00:06:28.110 --> 00:06:29.270
  • AND IF IT'S NOT TRUE OF US,
  • 00:06:29.270 --> 00:06:32.180
  • WHICH IT WASN'T TRUE,
  • 00:06:32.180 --> 00:06:34.000
  • BUT IF IT IS NOT TRUE OF US
  • 00:06:34.000 --> 00:06:35.060
  • IT IS LIKE WE'VE WASTED
  • 00:06:35.060 --> 00:06:36.150
  • SO MUCH TIME WE DON'T WANT
  • 00:06:36.150 --> 00:06:37.210
  • TO DEAL WITH THE REALITY
  • 00:06:37.210 --> 00:06:38.260
  • OF WHAT'S BEEN HAPPENING.
  • 00:06:38.260 --> 00:06:40.080
  • THAT WAS ME.
  • 00:06:40.080 --> 00:06:41.130
  • I DIDN'T WANT TO LOOK AT
  • 00:06:41.130 --> 00:06:43.010
  • THIS PART OF ME THAT WAS
  • 00:06:43.010 --> 00:06:45.150
  • BITTER AND ANGRY BECAUSE
  • 00:06:45.150 --> 00:06:47.190
  • I REALLY FELT LIKE I HAD MADE
  • 00:06:47.190 --> 00:06:48.280
  • A PROMISE TO GOD AND KEPT IT
  • 00:06:48.280 --> 00:06:50.080
  • AND YET GOD HAD NOT KEPT HIS.
  • 00:06:52.280 --> 00:06:55.280
  • AS CRAZY AS IT SOUNDS,
  • 00:06:55.280 --> 00:06:57.260
  • I CAN LOOK BACK AT THIS NOW,
  • 00:06:57.260 --> 00:06:59.150
  • IN HINDSIGHT AND SAY I EVEN
  • 00:06:59.150 --> 00:07:00.290
  • MARRIED MY HUSBAND
  • 00:07:00.290 --> 00:07:02.200
  • AS ANOTHER BAND-AID TO TRY
  • 00:07:02.200 --> 00:07:04.110
  • TO DISTRACT OTHERS AND MYSELF
  • 00:07:04.110 --> 00:07:06.200
  • FROM THE REALITY OF WHO
  • 00:07:06.200 --> 00:07:09.080
  • I WAS AND WHAT I WAS GOING
  • 00:07:09.080 --> 00:07:10.280
  • THROUGH AND THE DEPRESSION.
  • 00:07:10.280 --> 00:07:12.100
  • I REMEMBER JUSTIN,
  • 00:07:12.240 --> 00:07:15.240
  • HE IS A MIGHTY FINE COWBOY
  • 00:07:15.240 --> 00:07:18.220
  • AND HE LOOKS GOOD
  • 00:07:18.220 --> 00:07:20.100
  • IN A PAIR OF WRANGLERS.
  • 00:07:20.150 --> 00:07:23.150
  • AND HE COMES FROM
  • 00:07:23.150 --> 00:07:24.290
  • GOOD BAPTIST STOCK.
  • 00:07:24.290 --> 00:07:26.080
  • HE'S A GOOD GUY AND HE CAME
  • 00:07:26.080 --> 00:07:27.140
  • FROM THIS WONDERFUL FAMILY,
  • 00:07:27.140 --> 00:07:28.250
  • DIDN'T SEEM TO HAVE ALL
  • 00:07:28.250 --> 00:07:30.020
  • THE PROBLEMS THAT I HAD.
  • 00:07:30.020 --> 00:07:32.010
  • HE HAD SAVED HIMSELF
  • 00:07:32.010 --> 00:07:33.080
  • FOR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:07:33.080 --> 00:07:34.140
  • HE TRULY WAS A VIRGIN.
  • 00:07:34.140 --> 00:07:36.140
  • I HAD ALL OF THIS STUFF.
  • 00:07:36.140 --> 00:07:38.120
  • I HAD ALL OF THIS STUFF
  • 00:07:38.120 --> 00:07:40.070
  • AND I COULDN'T BRING MYSELF
  • 00:07:40.070 --> 00:07:41.180
  • TO TELL HIM.
  • 00:07:41.180 --> 00:07:43.150
  • I REMEMBER STANDING AT
  • 00:07:43.150 --> 00:07:44.230
  • THE ALTAR WITH ALL OF
  • 00:07:44.230 --> 00:07:46.070
  • THIS STUFF AND JUST HOPING
  • 00:07:46.070 --> 00:07:47.220
  • AND PRAYING THAT EVERYBODY
  • 00:07:47.220 --> 00:07:49.030
  • WOULD SEE HIM IN HIS GOODNESS
  • 00:07:49.030 --> 00:07:50.260
  • THEN IT WOULD DEFLECT
  • 00:07:50.260 --> 00:07:52.030
  • OFF OF ME.
  • 00:07:52.030 --> 00:07:54.200
  • I LOVED HIM.
  • 00:07:54.200 --> 00:07:56.000
  • I LOVED HIM AS MUCH AS
  • 00:07:56.000 --> 00:07:57.050
  • I KNEW WHAT THAT WAS.
  • 00:07:57.050 --> 00:08:00.070
  • SEVERAL YEARS INTO
  • 00:08:00.070 --> 00:08:01.090
  • OUR MARRIAGE, SEVERAL BABIES
  • 00:08:01.090 --> 00:08:02.240
  • LATER, DEPRESSION LATER,
  • 00:08:04.020 --> 00:08:07.020
  • I WAS ADDICTED
  • 00:08:07.020 --> 00:08:08.140
  • TO PRESCRIPTION PILLS
  • 00:08:08.140 --> 00:08:09.200
  • AND I WOULD FIND MYSELF
  • 00:08:09.200 --> 00:08:10.290
  • PLAYING THIS PART IN THE DAY,
  • 00:08:10.290 --> 00:08:12.200
  • LEADING MINISTRIES,
  • 00:08:12.200 --> 00:08:13.210
  • LEADING BIBLE STUDIES,
  • 00:08:13.210 --> 00:08:15.020
  • LEADING WORSHIP TEAMS,
  • 00:08:15.020 --> 00:08:16.090
  • HAD A BEAUTIFUL HOME,
  • 00:08:16.090 --> 00:08:17.120
  • HOSTED LOTS OF PARTIES
  • 00:08:17.120 --> 00:08:19.090
  • AND ABOUT 2:00 IN THE MORNING
  • 00:08:19.090 --> 00:08:21.040
  • I WOULD WAKE UP AND
  • 00:08:21.040 --> 00:08:22.100
  • I WOULD FIND MYSELF
  • 00:08:22.100 --> 00:08:23.190
  • IN OUR CLOSET TUCKED BENEATH
  • 00:08:23.190 --> 00:08:26.110
  • OUR CLOTHES IN
  • 00:08:26.110 --> 00:08:27.200
  • THE CORNER SOBBING.
  • 00:08:27.200 --> 00:08:30.120
  • IT WAS EXACTLY --
  • 00:08:30.120 --> 00:08:33.010
  • IT WAS ME AS A CHILD.
  • 00:08:33.010 --> 00:08:35.030
  • HERE I AM, A 25-YEAR OLD WOMAN
  • 00:08:35.030 --> 00:08:36.170
  • AND I'M STILL THIS FIVE,
  • 00:08:36.170 --> 00:08:39.070
  • TEN-YEAR OLD GIRL
  • 00:08:39.070 --> 00:08:41.120
  • COMPLETELY INSECURE,
  • 00:08:41.120 --> 00:08:43.130
  • FEELING COMPLETELY REJECTED,
  • 00:08:43.130 --> 00:08:44.260
  • AND FEELING LIKE
  • 00:08:47.180 --> 00:08:49.020
  • AT THE END OF THE DAY
  • 00:08:49.020 --> 00:08:50.100
  • EVENTUALLY, JUSTIN WAS
  • 00:08:50.100 --> 00:08:51.130
  • GOING TO REJECT ME IF
  • 00:08:51.130 --> 00:08:52.170
  • WE HAD WONDERFUL COMMUNITY,
  • 00:08:55.290 --> 00:08:57.130
  • WONDERFUL FRIENDS
  • 00:08:57.130 --> 00:08:58.190
  • IN OUR CHURCH.
  • 00:08:58.190 --> 00:09:00.140
  • I HAD A BEST FRIEND AND
  • 00:09:00.140 --> 00:09:03.130
  • I BEGAN TO SHARE WITH THEM.
  • 00:09:03.130 --> 00:09:06.110
  • AND THEY BEGAN TO NOTICE
  • 00:09:06.110 --> 00:09:07.150
  • IN ME CHANGES OF DEPRESSION
  • 00:09:07.150 --> 00:09:09.100
  • AND ISOLATION; JUST A DARKNESS
  • 00:09:09.180 --> 00:09:12.180
  • IN ME AND BECOME CONCERNED,
  • 00:09:12.180 --> 00:09:14.230
  • SPECIFICALLY, THE HUSBAND,
  • 00:09:14.230 --> 00:09:16.010
  • MY BEST FRIEND'S HUSBAND
  • 00:09:16.010 --> 00:09:17.060
  • BECAME CONCERNED
  • 00:09:17.060 --> 00:09:18.130
  • AND WE BEGAN TO TALK.
  • 00:09:18.130 --> 00:09:19.180
  • AND AT FIRST IT WAS JUST
  • 00:09:19.180 --> 00:09:21.110
  • A BOND, JUST AN EMOTIONAL
  • 00:09:21.110 --> 00:09:23.140
  • BOND OR TIE.
  • 00:09:23.140 --> 00:09:24.220
  • HE HAD EXPERIENCED SOME OF
  • 00:09:24.220 --> 00:09:25.280
  • THOSE THINGS IN HIS OWN LIFE
  • 00:09:25.280 --> 00:09:27.040
  • AND HIS OWN CHILDHOOD
  • 00:09:27.040 --> 00:09:28.110
  • AND WE JUST BONDED IN THAT.
  • 00:09:28.110 --> 00:09:29.250
  • AND SLOWLY OVER TIME
  • 00:09:29.250 --> 00:09:31.270
  • I REALLY FELT LIKE
  • 00:09:31.270 --> 00:09:33.160
  • OH, MAYBE THIS WAS THE MAN
  • 00:09:33.160 --> 00:09:35.290
  • I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE WITH.
  • 00:09:35.290 --> 00:09:37.100
  • MAYBE I MISSED IT.
  • 00:09:37.100 --> 00:09:38.190
  • MAYBE IN ALL OF MY MESS,
  • 00:09:38.190 --> 00:09:40.070
  • I WASN'T SUPPOSED TO END UP
  • 00:09:40.070 --> 00:09:41.190
  • WITH JUSTIN AND I WAS
  • 00:09:41.190 --> 00:09:42.260
  • SUPPOSED TO... AND THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:09:42.260 --> 00:09:44.030
  • WE DO, WE JUSTIFY OUR SIN.
  • 00:09:44.030 --> 00:09:46.090
  • AND SATAN IS REALLY TRICKY
  • 00:09:46.090 --> 00:09:47.150
  • BECAUSE WE CAN EVEN
  • 00:09:47.150 --> 00:09:48.270
  • JUSTIFY OUR SIN FOR
  • 00:09:48.270 --> 00:09:50.010
  • THE SAKE OF OTHERS.
  • 00:09:50.010 --> 00:09:51.150
  • AND I WOULD USE GOD
  • 00:09:51.150 --> 00:09:53.270
  • AND I WOULD USE NOT WANTING
  • 00:09:53.270 --> 00:09:55.120
  • TO HURT MY HUSBAND
  • 00:09:55.120 --> 00:09:56.220
  • TO JUSTIFY THIS AFFAIR.
  • 00:09:57.050 --> 00:10:00.050
  • I WAS IN AN ADULTEROUS
  • 00:10:00.050 --> 00:10:01.120
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH THIS MAN
  • 00:10:01.120 --> 00:10:02.240
  • FOR THREE YEARS IN OUR CHURCH,
  • 00:10:02.240 --> 00:10:04.060
  • IN LEADERSHIP IN OUR CHURCH.
  • 00:10:04.060 --> 00:10:06.030
  • AT THE END OF THREE YEARS
  • 00:10:06.030 --> 00:10:07.150
  • I WAS A MESS --
  • 00:10:07.150 --> 00:10:09.260
  • LITERALLY, AND I'M NOT TRYING
  • 00:10:09.260 --> 00:10:12.060
  • TO BE OVER SPIRITUAL,
  • 00:10:12.060 --> 00:10:13.190
  • I REALLY AM NOT.
  • 00:10:13.190 --> 00:10:14.270
  • I WAS DYING FROM THE INSIDE
  • 00:10:14.270 --> 00:10:16.050
  • OUT BECAUSE GOD DOESN'T
  • 00:10:16.050 --> 00:10:17.130
  • LET HIS CHILDREN
  • 00:10:17.130 --> 00:10:18.210
  • SIN SUCCESSFULLY.
  • 00:10:18.210 --> 00:10:19.280
  • AND I REALLY TRULY WAS
  • 00:10:19.280 --> 00:10:21.050
  • A BELIEVER, NOT THE STORY
  • 00:10:21.050 --> 00:10:22.100
  • OF ALL THIS MESS,
  • 00:10:22.100 --> 00:10:23.210
  • THEN I CAME TO KNOW THE LORD.
  • 00:10:23.210 --> 00:10:24.280
  • I REALLY KNEW THE LORD,
  • 00:10:24.280 --> 00:10:26.130
  • I REALLY WANTED HIM
  • 00:10:26.130 --> 00:10:27.150
  • TO SAVE ME.
  • 00:10:27.150 --> 00:10:28.290
  • AND HOW IN THE WORLD WOULD
  • 00:10:28.290 --> 00:10:30.020
  • SOMEBODY LIKE THAT IN THIS
  • 00:10:30.020 --> 00:10:31.090
  • HABITUAL PATTERN OF SIN
  • 00:10:31.090 --> 00:10:34.090
  • IN HER LIFE, I MEAN,
  • 00:10:34.090 --> 00:10:36.220
  • IT WRECKS ME
  • 00:10:36.220 --> 00:10:37.270
  • TO THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:10:37.270 --> 00:10:40.010
  • James: OKAY. SO NOW
  • 00:10:40.010 --> 00:10:41.110
  • THIS GETS FOUND OUT THIS GUY
  • 00:10:42.190 --> 00:10:43.200
  • HAS GOT TO BE GONE.
  • 00:10:43.200 --> 00:10:44.230
  • SO I'LL CATCH EVERYTHING
  • 00:10:44.230 --> 00:10:46.000
  • I DESERVE.
  • 00:10:46.000 --> 00:10:47.050
  • YOUR OWN GRAVE; RIGHT?
  • 00:10:48.170 --> 00:10:50.020
  • AND BASICALLY, THAT'S WHERE
  • 00:10:50.020 --> 00:10:51.110
  • YOU'RE LIVING.
  • 00:10:51.110 --> 00:10:52.160
  • WHAT IN THE WORLD HAPPENED
  • 00:10:52.160 --> 00:10:53.200
  • BECAUSE IT JUST LOOKS TO ME
  • 00:10:53.200 --> 00:10:54.280
  • LIKE, FROM AN AVERAGE POINT
  • 00:10:54.280 --> 00:10:57.170
  • OF VIEW IT IS JUST HOPELESS.
  • 00:10:57.170 --> 00:10:58.250
  • Kasey: YEAH.
  • 00:10:58.250 --> 00:11:01.060
  • EVERYTHING WAS EXPOSED.
  • 00:11:01.060 --> 00:11:03.010
  • SHE FOUND THE PHONE RECORDS
  • 00:11:03.010 --> 00:11:04.160
  • AND THERE IT WAS,
  • 00:11:04.160 --> 00:11:05.230
  • THIS LIE THAT WE BUILT
  • 00:11:05.230 --> 00:11:07.150
  • AND OUR LITTLE WORLD,
  • 00:11:07.150 --> 00:11:08.210
  • OUR LITTLE FICTIONAL WORLD.
  • 00:11:08.210 --> 00:11:09.280
  • James: THE OTHER PERSON'S
  • 00:11:09.280 --> 00:11:11.050
  • SPOUSE.
  • 00:11:11.050 --> 00:11:12.100
  • Kasey: YES. MY BEST FRIEND
  • 00:11:12.100 --> 00:11:13.120
  • -- MY BEST FRIEND.
  • 00:11:13.120 --> 00:11:14.200
  • TOTALLY SPIRIT --
  • 00:11:14.200 --> 00:11:16.080
  • James: YEAH, IT DOESN'T TAKE
  • 00:11:16.080 --> 00:11:17.180
  • A REAL SPIRIT-FILLED PERSON
  • 00:11:17.180 --> 00:11:18.220
  • TO FIGURE OUT THEY OUGHT
  • 00:11:18.220 --> 00:11:19.240
  • TO TELL YOU OFF;
  • 00:11:19.240 --> 00:11:20.260
  • YOU KNOW THAT?
  • 00:11:20.260 --> 00:11:21.280
  • YOU REALLY MESSED UP.
  • 00:11:21.280 --> 00:11:23.000
  • Kasey: YES!
  • 00:11:23.000 --> 00:11:24.280
  • James: I MEAN ITS THE TRUTH.
  • 00:11:24.280 --> 00:11:26.200
  • THE DEVIL IS TELLING YOU
  • 00:11:26.200 --> 00:11:27.270
  • WHAT YOU ARE.
  • 00:11:27.270 --> 00:11:29.020
  • YOU HAVE TO AGREE WITH HIM.
  • 00:11:29.020 --> 00:11:30.070
  • Kasey: NO. I THINK
  • 00:11:30.070 --> 00:11:31.130
  • THIS IS SO IMPORTANT.
  • 00:11:31.130 --> 00:11:32.180
  • I'M SO GLAD THAT THIS IS WHAT
  • 00:11:32.180 --> 00:11:33.230
  • I GO THROUGH IN THE BOOK
  • 00:11:33.230 --> 00:11:34.290
  • BECAUSE I NEEDED TO EXPERIENCE
  • 00:11:34.290 --> 00:11:36.190
  • THE BROKENNESS AND
  • 00:11:36.190 --> 00:11:37.280
  • THE SORROW OF MY SIN BECAUSE
  • 00:11:37.280 --> 00:11:39.080
  • IT IS IN THIS HONEST PLACE,
  • 00:11:41.030 --> 00:11:43.010
  • AND THIS PURITY.
  • 00:11:43.010 --> 00:11:44.150
  • AND YOU EVEN SEE DAVID
  • 00:11:44.150 --> 00:11:46.090
  • CRYING OUT AND SAYING,
  • 00:11:46.090 --> 00:11:47.160
  • "THANK YOU FOR BREAKING
  • 00:11:47.160 --> 00:11:48.250
  • THAT YOU CAN PURGE ME
  • 00:11:50.010 --> 00:11:51.050
  • INTO MY SECRET HEART
  • 00:11:51.050 --> 00:11:52.190
  • AND CLEAN ME WITH HYSSOP.
  • 00:11:52.190 --> 00:11:54.070
  • HYSSOP WAS A PLANT THAT
  • 00:11:54.070 --> 00:11:55.120
  • WAS USED FOR MEDICINE.
  • 00:11:55.120 --> 00:11:57.010
  • James: SO YOU WEREN'T LOOKING
  • 00:11:57.010 --> 00:11:58.050
  • AT YOUR FAILURE AS SOMETHING
  • 00:11:58.050 --> 00:11:59.060
  • TO BE DEFENDED.
  • 00:11:59.060 --> 00:12:00.070
  • YOU WEREN'T TRYING
  • 00:12:00.070 --> 00:12:01.070
  • TO LIKE DEFEND YOURSELF.
  • 00:12:01.070 --> 00:12:02.060
  • YOU ACTUALLY...
  • 00:12:02.060 --> 00:12:03.080
  • Kasey: NOT AT THAT MOMENT,
  • 00:12:03.080 --> 00:12:04.080
  • I WAS DONE.
  • 00:12:04.080 --> 00:12:05.090
  • I WAS BEGGING THE LORD BECAUSE
  • 00:12:05.090 --> 00:12:06.090
  • I COULD NOT CARRY
  • 00:12:06.090 --> 00:12:07.090
  • Betty: WELL, YOU HAD TO HAVE
  • 00:12:08.130 --> 00:12:09.150
  • LIVED WITH LOW SELF-ESTEEM.
  • 00:12:09.150 --> 00:12:10.230
  • YOU DIDN'T SEE ANYTHING
  • 00:12:10.230 --> 00:12:11.280
  • GOOD IN YOURSELF.
  • 00:12:11.280 --> 00:12:13.010
  • I FEEL LIKE MAYBE EVEN
  • 00:12:13.010 --> 00:12:15.070
  • THAT HE GAVE YOU, YOU SAW
  • 00:12:16.100 --> 00:12:17.270
  • THE GOODNESS IN HIM AND
  • 00:12:17.270 --> 00:12:19.040
  • FELT SOME OF THAT GOODNESS
  • 00:12:19.040 --> 00:12:20.080
  • WOULD RUB OFF ON YOU.
  • 00:12:20.080 --> 00:12:22.070
  • Kasey: THAT'S EXACTLY,
  • 00:12:22.070 --> 00:12:23.100
  • BETTY WHAT I THOUGHT.
  • 00:12:23.100 --> 00:12:24.120
  • James: BUT YOU COULDN'T
  • 00:12:24.120 --> 00:12:25.140
  • REALLY BELIEVE IT WOULD.
  • 00:12:25.140 --> 00:12:26.160
  • HOW COULD IT POSSIBLY?
  • 00:12:26.160 --> 00:12:27.180
  • Kasey: YES. SO HERE'S
  • 00:12:27.180 --> 00:12:28.220
  • WHAT HAPPENED AND THIS IS
  • 00:12:28.220 --> 00:12:29.240
  • WHERE THE BOOK REALLY STARTS.
  • 00:12:29.240 --> 00:12:30.260
  • THIS IS TEN YEARS AGO,
  • 00:12:30.260 --> 00:12:31.280
  • THIS IS A DECADE
  • 00:12:31.280 --> 00:12:33.010
  • OF HINDSIGHT HERE.
  • 00:12:33.010 --> 00:12:34.170
  • HERE'S JUSTIN AND HE IS
  • 00:12:34.170 --> 00:12:35.270
  • HEARING THIS INFORMATION,
  • 00:12:35.270 --> 00:12:37.250
  • AND COMPLETELY BETRAYED,
  • 00:12:37.250 --> 00:12:38.270
  • AND HE IS THINKING
  • 00:12:38.270 --> 00:12:40.040
  • EVERYTHING THAT ANYBODY
  • 00:12:40.040 --> 00:12:41.070
  • WOULD THINK AT THAT MOMENT.
  • 00:12:41.070 --> 00:12:42.080
  • James: IT WASN'T LIKE
  • 00:12:42.080 --> 00:12:43.090
  • THIS WOMAN CAME AND
  • 00:12:43.090 --> 00:12:44.080
  • REDEMPTIVELY DUMPED
  • 00:12:44.080 --> 00:12:45.090
  • ALL OF THIS ON HIM EITHER.
  • 00:12:45.090 --> 00:12:46.120
  • BOW!
  • 00:12:46.120 --> 00:12:48.010
  • Kasey: AND HE WANTS TO LEAVE
  • 00:12:48.010 --> 00:12:49.060
  • AND HE IS ANGRY AND
  • 00:12:49.060 --> 00:12:50.070
  • HE IS HURT AND ALL OF
  • 00:12:50.070 --> 00:12:51.110
  • THOSE FEELINGS HE FELT.
  • 00:12:51.110 --> 00:12:52.240
  • I FULLY EXPECTED HIM TO.
  • 00:12:52.240 --> 00:12:55.110
  • INSTEAD, AND THIS ISN'T
  • 00:12:55.110 --> 00:12:56.260
  • EVERYONE'S STORY BUT
  • 00:12:56.260 --> 00:12:57.270
  • THIS IS MY STORY.
  • 00:12:57.270 --> 00:12:59.180
  • AND THIS IS HOW THE LORD
  • 00:12:59.180 --> 00:13:00.240
  • BECAME REAL TO ME AND
  • 00:13:00.240 --> 00:13:02.000
  • THAT'S THE POINT OF THIS,
  • 00:13:02.000 --> 00:13:03.180
  • IS I WANT CHRISTIANS TO STOP
  • 00:13:03.180 --> 00:13:05.110
  • LIVING WITH GOD AS A CONCEPT.
  • 00:13:05.110 --> 00:13:07.020
  • I WANT HIM TO BE REAL TO THEM
  • 00:13:07.020 --> 00:13:09.140
  • AND EXPERIENCE HIM.
  • 00:13:09.140 --> 00:13:12.030
  • AND THAT CAME IN THE FORM
  • 00:13:12.030 --> 00:13:13.100
  • OF MY MAN STANDING THERE AND
  • 00:13:13.100 --> 00:13:15.040
  • SAYING, "HEY, I'M SO HURT."
  • 00:13:15.080 --> 00:13:18.080
  • THESE WERE HIS EXACT WORDS.
  • 00:13:18.080 --> 00:13:20.200
  • "BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW
  • 00:13:20.200 --> 00:13:22.110
  • TO NOT LOVE YOU.
  • 00:13:22.110 --> 00:13:24.260
  • I DON'T KNOW HOW
  • 00:13:24.260 --> 00:13:26.070
  • TO NOT LOVE YOU."
  • 00:13:26.070 --> 00:13:27.140
  • James: GOD BLESS HIM!
  • 00:13:27.140 --> 00:13:28.210
  • WHAT'S HIS NAME?
  • 00:13:28.210 --> 00:13:29.260
  • Kasey: JUSTIN.
  • 00:13:29.260 --> 00:13:31.020
  • James: JUSTIN,
  • 00:13:31.020 --> 00:13:32.090
  • THAT'S AMAZING, BUDDY.
  • 00:13:32.090 --> 00:13:33.270
  • THAT'S MUCH OF A MAN
  • 00:13:33.270 --> 00:13:35.130
  • BUT IT IS THAT MAN.
  • 00:13:35.130 --> 00:13:37.060
  • SO MUCH BIGGER
  • 00:13:37.060 --> 00:13:39.020
  • THAN YOU IN YOU.
  • 00:13:39.020 --> 00:13:40.130
  • AND I JUST ADMIRE YOU, SALUTE,
  • 00:13:41.140 --> 00:13:44.140
  • I WISH YOUR PICTURE WAS BACK
  • 00:13:44.140 --> 00:13:45.260
  • HERE WITH YOUR WIFE.
  • 00:13:45.260 --> 00:13:47.200
  • I LOOK BACK HERE TO SEE
  • 00:13:47.200 --> 00:13:48.220
  • YOU'RE THE REAL DEAL, MAN.
  • 00:13:51.010 --> 00:13:52.190
  • YOU LET HIM BE
  • 00:13:52.190 --> 00:13:53.230
  • WHO HE IS IN YOU.
  • 00:13:53.230 --> 00:13:54.260
  • I WANT TO THANK YOU, JUSTIN.
  • 00:13:54.260 --> 00:13:56.010
  • FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART,
  • 00:13:56.010 --> 00:13:57.070
  • THAT LOVE FOR HER.
  • 00:13:58.250 --> 00:14:01.020
  • BECAUSE YOU KNOW I WAS
  • 00:14:01.020 --> 00:14:02.150
  • ALREADY DOING THE JUDGE/JURY
  • 00:14:02.150 --> 00:14:04.190
  • DEAL ALL BY MYSELF.
  • 00:14:06.020 --> 00:14:09.020
  • SHE IS FEELING THE SAME WAY,
  • 00:14:09.020 --> 00:14:11.170
  • AND YOU SHOWED US SOMETHING
  • 00:14:11.170 --> 00:14:12.230
  • SO MUCH GREATER,
  • 00:14:12.230 --> 00:14:14.010
  • YOU SHOWED HER SOMETHING
  • 00:14:14.010 --> 00:14:15.050
  • SO MUCH GREATER, AND NOW
  • 00:14:15.050 --> 00:14:16.120
  • THEN AS A COUPLE,
  • 00:14:16.120 --> 00:14:17.140
  • YOU'RE SHOWING A WHOLE LOT
  • 00:14:17.140 --> 00:14:18.160
  • OF PEOPLE SOMETHING
  • 00:14:18.160 --> 00:14:19.210
  • MUCH GREATER.
  • 00:14:19.210 --> 00:14:20.270
  • YOU'VE MADE YOUR HOME
  • 00:14:20.270 --> 00:14:22.040
  • INTO A HAVEN FOR THE HURTING
  • 00:14:22.040 --> 00:14:23.200
  • AND YOU'RE TRYING TO GET

  • GOD'S ARMS AROUND PEOPLE;

  • RIGHT?
  • 00:14:25.250 --> 00:14:26.270
  • Kasey: YES. YES!
  • 00:14:26.270 --> 00:14:28.030
  • James: AND DON'T YOU HAVE
  • 00:14:28.030 --> 00:14:29.040
  • A MINISTRY NOW?
  • 00:14:29.040 --> 00:14:30.060
  • THE NAME IF THEY WANT TO KNOW
  • 00:14:30.060 --> 00:14:31.110
  • HOW DO WE MAYBE GET SOME HELP
  • 00:14:31.110 --> 00:14:32.130
  • THAT Y'ALL ARE OFFERING.
  • 00:14:32.130 --> 00:14:33.150
  • TO FIND IT?
  • 00:14:34.180 --> 00:14:35.190
  • Kasey: MY WEBSITE,
  • 00:14:35.190 --> 00:14:36.210
  • KASEYVANNORMAN.ORG.
  • 00:14:36.210 --> 00:14:37.240
  • James: AND YOU DO HAVE HELP
  • 00:14:37.240 --> 00:14:38.280
  • IN THE COLLEGE STATION AREA
  • 00:14:38.280 --> 00:14:40.060
  • GO AHEAD AND FINISH THE STORY.
  • 00:14:42.080 --> 00:14:43.100
  • I DIDN'T MEAN
  • 00:14:43.100 --> 00:14:44.130
  • TO CUT YOU OFF HERE.
  • 00:14:44.130 --> 00:14:45.230
  • BUT I WAS FIXING TO LEAVE.
  • 00:14:45.230 --> 00:14:47.110
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:14:47.110 --> 00:14:50.040
  • THIS WHOLE DEAL IS THAT
  • 00:14:50.040 --> 00:14:52.180
  • HE'S SHOWING US JESUS
  • 00:14:52.180 --> 00:14:54.190
  • BUT IT GOT ON YOU.
  • 00:14:54.190 --> 00:14:56.060
  • Kasey: RIGHT!
  • 00:14:56.060 --> 00:14:57.110
  • AND THAT IS WHERE THE GAP
  • 00:14:57.110 --> 00:14:58.130
  • THERE WAS A GAP IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:14:59.160 --> 00:15:00.170
  • AND I THINK THAT'S A BIG PART
  • 00:15:00.170 --> 00:15:01.190
  • OF THE BOOK IS I'M SPEAKING
  • 00:15:01.190 --> 00:15:02.230
  • TO CHRISTIANS WHO FEEL
  • 00:15:02.230 --> 00:15:04.120
  • DISCONNECTED IN SOME WAY
  • 00:15:04.120 --> 00:15:05.270
  • OF THEIR PAST.
  • 00:15:07.000 --> 00:15:08.000
  • SO THERE'S MESSAGING OUT THERE
  • 00:15:08.000 --> 00:15:10.090
  • NOW THAT'S SAYING WE'RE NOT
  • 00:15:10.090 --> 00:15:11.220
  • OUR PAST, WE'RE NOT DEFINED
  • 00:15:11.220 --> 00:15:12.270
  • BY OUR PAST BUT
  • 00:15:12.270 --> 00:15:14.060
  • AS A PROFESSIONAL COUNSELOR,
  • 00:15:14.060 --> 00:15:15.070
  • I CAN TELL YOU IT'S JUST
  • 00:15:15.070 --> 00:15:16.180
  • PHYSIOLOGICALLY IMPOSSIBLE
  • 00:15:16.180 --> 00:15:17.290
  • NOT TO BE DEFINED
  • 00:15:17.290 --> 00:15:19.040
  • BY YOUR PAST.
  • 00:15:19.040 --> 00:15:20.110
  • AND THERE'S SOMETHING
  • 00:15:20.110 --> 00:15:21.150
  • SO LIBERATING AND CLARIFYING
  • 00:15:21.150 --> 00:15:22.270
  • WHEN WE TAKE OWNERSHIP
  • 00:15:22.270 --> 00:15:24.040
  • AND EMBRACE THOSE PARTS OF US.
  • 00:15:24.040 --> 00:15:25.240
  • AND FOR ME, THIS IS WHERE
  • 00:15:25.240 --> 00:15:27.270
  • GOD WAS NO LONGER A CONCEPT
  • 00:15:27.270 --> 00:15:29.190
  • OR SOMETHING I JUST SAID
  • 00:15:29.190 --> 00:15:30.220
  • THAT SOUNDED GOOD
  • 00:15:30.220 --> 00:15:31.260
  • OR A MESSAGE.
  • 00:15:31.260 --> 00:15:33.140
  • HE WAS MY REALITY BECAUSE
  • 00:15:33.140 --> 00:15:34.290
  • NOW I HAVE THIS MAN WHO IS,
  • 00:15:35.020 --> 00:15:38.020
  • I HAVE NOTHING TO OFFER HIM,
  • 00:15:38.020 --> 00:15:40.060
  • I HAVE CHEATED ON HIM,
  • 00:15:40.060 --> 00:15:41.130
  • WHICH IS WHAT WE CAN DO
  • 00:15:41.130 --> 00:15:42.200
  • TO THE LORD, JUST PROSTITUTE
  • 00:15:42.200 --> 00:15:43.220
  • OURSELVES OUT TO ALL
  • 00:15:43.220 --> 00:15:45.090
  • THESE OTHER GODS AND
  • 00:15:45.090 --> 00:15:46.150
  • JUST CHEAT ON HIM, AND RUN
  • 00:15:46.150 --> 00:15:47.260
  • THE OTHER DIRECTION.
  • 00:15:47.260 --> 00:15:49.150
  • AND YET, HERE IS JESUS
  • 00:15:49.150 --> 00:15:51.140
  • STANDING HERE SAYING,
  • 00:15:51.140 --> 00:15:52.190
  • "I DON'T KNOW HOW
  • 00:15:52.190 --> 00:15:54.130
  • TO NOT LOVE YOU.
  • 00:15:54.130 --> 00:15:56.050
  • TO NOT LOVE YOU
  • 00:15:56.050 --> 00:15:57.090
  • WOULD BE TO TURN ON MYSELF
  • 00:15:57.090 --> 00:15:58.180
  • AND I'M HERE TO DO
  • 00:15:58.180 --> 00:15:59.200
  • THE WILL OF THE FATHER
  • 00:15:59.200 --> 00:16:00.270
  • WHICH IS TO LOVE YOU."
  • 00:16:00.270 --> 00:16:03.020
  • AND THAT IS THE WORK OF
  • 00:16:03.020 --> 00:16:04.210
  • THE GOSPEL IN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:16:04.210 --> 00:16:06.000
  • THAT IS THE GOOD NEWS
  • 00:16:06.000 --> 00:16:07.070
  • THAT ON OUR WORST DAY IN
  • 00:16:07.070 --> 00:16:08.290
  • OUR MOST UNLIKELY PLACES,
  • 00:16:08.290 --> 00:16:11.070
  • GOD IS USING THAT MATERIAL,
  • 00:16:11.070 --> 00:16:13.130
  • THAT RESOURCE.
  • 00:16:13.130 --> 00:16:14.230
  • NOT TAKING FROM SOMEBODY
  • 00:16:14.230 --> 00:16:15.290
  • ELSE'S GOOD DAY OR BAD DAY,
  • 00:16:15.290 --> 00:16:17.230
  • HE IS USING OUR LIFE,
  • 00:16:17.230 --> 00:16:20.120
  • OUR STORY.
  • 00:16:20.120 --> 00:16:21.250
  • AND FOR US TO FIND THE WORDS
  • 00:16:21.250 --> 00:16:23.140
  • AND THE LANGUAGE TO PUT
  • 00:16:23.140 --> 00:16:24.170
  • AROUND THAT IS POWERFUL
  • 00:16:24.170 --> 00:16:26.190
  • BECAUSE IT INTEGRATES US
  • 00:16:26.190 --> 00:16:28.000
  • WITH WHO GOD IS AND
  • 00:16:28.000 --> 00:16:29.020
  • IT DRAWS US INTO HIS WILL
  • 00:16:29.020 --> 00:16:30.220
  • FOR OUR LIFE.
  • 00:16:30.220 --> 00:16:32.190
  • I HOPE THIS HELPS
  • 00:16:32.190 --> 00:16:33.270
  • READERS DO THAT.
  • 00:16:33.270 --> 00:16:35.030
  • James: THE BOOK IS
  • 00:16:35.030 --> 00:16:36.070
  • SO WELL WRITTEN.
  • 00:16:36.070 --> 00:16:37.090
  • WOULD YOU SAY THANK YOU
  • 00:16:37.090 --> 00:16:38.110
  • TO GOD?
  • 00:16:38.110 --> 00:16:39.150
  • THANKS TO KASEY AND JUSTIN?
  • 00:16:41.220 --> 00:16:44.220
  • SHE JUST DOWNLOADED
  • 00:16:44.220 --> 00:16:46.130
  • SO MUCH TRUTH.
  • 00:16:46.130 --> 00:16:49.030
  • WHAT SHE IS SAYING ABOUT
  • 00:16:49.030 --> 00:16:50.230
  • HOW GOD IS THIS WAY AND
  • 00:16:50.230 --> 00:16:53.080
  • HE TAKES THE BROKENNESS
  • 00:16:53.080 --> 00:16:55.120
  • THAT WE'RE TREATING AND
  • 00:16:55.120 --> 00:16:57.010
  • TRYING TO MEDICATE IN ALL
  • 00:16:57.010 --> 00:17:00.030
  • THE WRONG WAYS, AND PEOPLE
  • 00:17:00.030 --> 00:17:01.140
  • AND GETTING AWAY FROM REALITY
  • 00:17:03.120 --> 00:17:06.070
  • RATHER THAN LETTING THE LORD
  • 00:17:06.070 --> 00:17:07.060
  • TAKE THAT REALITY
  • 00:17:07.060 --> 00:17:08.150
  • AND MAKE SOMETHING
  • 00:17:08.150 --> 00:17:09.200
  • INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:17:09.200 --> 00:17:10.260
  • WHICH THIS BIG MESS PROVES
  • 00:17:12.020 --> 00:17:13.120
  • IT WASN'T WASTED.
  • 00:17:13.120 --> 00:17:14.260
  • BUT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:17:14.260 --> 00:17:16.010
  • THE GREATNESS OF GOD
  • 00:17:16.010 --> 00:17:17.160
  • ENABLED SOMEBODY TO DO THAT
  • 00:17:17.160 --> 00:17:18.200
  • WHICH YOU COULDN'T DO,
  • 00:17:18.200 --> 00:17:19.260
  • LIKE WHAT JUSTIN DID.

  • 00:22:55.120 --> 00:22:56.150
  • JUSTIN, I WANT YOU
  • 00:22:56.150 --> 00:22:57.170
  • TO SEND ME YOUR PICTURE. OKAY?
  • 00:22:57.170 --> 00:22:59.030
  • I'M GOING TO PRAY FOR YOU.
  • 00:22:59.030 --> 00:23:00.220
  • NEED MORE LIKE YOU.
  • 00:23:00.220 --> 00:23:02.060
  • I WOKE UP THIS MORNING
  • 00:23:21.020 --> 00:23:23.030
  • SAW A WORLD FULL OF TROUBLE
  • 00:23:23.060 --> 00:23:25.030
  • NOW I THOUGHT, HOW'D WE EVER GET SO FAR DOWN
  • 00:23:25.060 --> 00:23:27.240
  • HOW'S IT EVER GONNA TURN AROUND
  • 00:23:27.270 --> 00:23:29.270
  • SO I TURNED MY EYES TO HEAVEN
  • 00:23:30.000 --> 00:23:33.110
  • I THOUGHT, "GOD, WHY DON'T YOU DO SOMETHING?"
  • 00:23:33.140 --> 00:23:38.110
  • WELL, I JUST COULDN'T BEAR THE THOUGHT
  • 00:23:38.140 --> 00:23:41.190
  • OF PEOPLE LIVING IN POVERTY
  • 00:23:41.220 --> 00:23:43.210
  • CHILDREN SOLD INTO SLAVERY
  • 00:23:43.240 --> 00:23:45.250
  • THE THOUGHT DISGUSTED ME
  • 00:23:45.280 --> 00:23:47.290
  • SO, I SHOOK MY FIST AT HEAVEN
  • 00:23:48.020 --> 00:23:51.100
  • SAID, "GOD, WHY DON'T YOU DO SOMETHING?"
  • 00:23:51.130 --> 00:23:55.100
  • HE SAID, "I DID, I CREATED YOU"
  • 00:23:55.130 --> 00:24:03.110
  • IF NOT US, THEN WHO
  • 00:24:06.110 --> 00:24:10.230
  • IF NOT ME AND YOU
  • 00:24:10.260 --> 00:24:14.250
  • RIGHT NOW, IT'S TIME FOR US TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:24:14.280 --> 00:24:24.030
  • IF NOT NOW, THEN WHEN
  • 00:24:24.060 --> 00:24:28.190
  • WILL WE SEE AN END TO ALL THIS PAIN
  • 00:24:28.220 --> 00:24:36.120
  • IT'S NOT ENOUGH TO DO NOTHING
  • 00:24:36.150 --> 00:24:41.000
  • IT'S TIME FOR US TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:24:41.030 --> 00:24:46.160
  • I'M TIRED OF TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:24:46.190 --> 00:24:48.250
  • HOW WE ARE GOD'S HANDS AND FEET
  • 00:24:48.280 --> 00:24:51.150
  • BUT IT'S EASIER TO SAY THAN TO BE
  • 00:24:51.180 --> 00:24:53.160
  • WHO LIVE LIKE ANGELS OF APATHY
  • 00:24:53.190 --> 00:24:55.170
  • WE TELL OURSELVES IT'S ALRIGHT
  • 00:24:55.200 --> 00:24:59.090
  • "I'M SURE SOMEBODY ELSE WILL DO SOMETHING"
  • 00:24:59.120 --> 00:25:04.240
  • WELL, I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU
  • 00:25:04.270 --> 00:25:07.150
  • BUT I'M SICK AND TIRED OF LIFE WITH NO DESIRE
  • 00:25:07.180 --> 00:25:11.120
  • I DON'T WANT A FLAME, I WANT A FIRE
  • 00:25:11.150 --> 00:25:14.080
  • I WANNA BE THE ONE WHO'S GONNA STAND UP
  • 00:25:14.110 --> 00:25:17.030
  • AND SAY, "I'M GONNA DO SOMETHING"
  • 00:25:17.060 --> 00:25:23.100
  • IF NOT US, THEN WHO
  • 00:25:23.130 --> 00:25:27.120
  • IF NOT ME AND YOU
  • 00:25:27.150 --> 00:25:31.140
  • RIGHT NOW, IT'S TIME FOR US TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:25:31.170 --> 00:25:40.180
  • I SAID IF NOT NOW, THEN WHEN
  • 00:25:40.210 --> 00:25:45.140
  • WILL WE SEE AN END TO ALL THIS PAIN
  • 00:25:45.170 --> 00:25:53.070
  • IT'S NOT ENOUGH TO DO NOTHING
  • 00:25:53.100 --> 00:25:57.150
  • IT'S TIME FOR US TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:25:57.180 --> 00:26:04.080
  • WE ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH
  • 00:26:04.110 --> 00:26:07.030
  • WE ARE A CITY ON A HILL
  • 00:26:07.060 --> 00:26:12.210
  • BUT WE'RE NEVER GONNA CHANGE THE WORLD BY STANDING STILL
  • 00:26:12.240 --> 00:26:22.000
  • IF NOT US, THEN WHO
  • 00:26:22.030 --> 00:26:26.150
  • IF NOT ME AND YOU
  • 00:26:26.180 --> 00:26:30.270
  • RIGHT NOW, IT'S NOT ENOUGH TO DO NOTHING
  • 00:26:31.000 --> 00:26:38.270
  • IT'S TIME FOR US TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:26:39.000 --> 00:26:43.070
  • I SAID ITS TIME FOR US TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:26:43.100 --> 00:26:47.260
  • WELL, ITS TIME FOR US TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:26:47.290 --> 00:26:52.250
