  • - I WANT CHRISTIANS TO STOP LIVING WITH GOD AS A CONCEPT.
  • 00:00:07.050 --> 00:00:10.060
  • I WANT HIM TO BE REAL TO THEM.
  • 00:00:10.090 --> 00:00:12.210
  • COMING UP. AFTER NEARLY DESTROYING
  • 00:00:12.240 --> 00:00:14.220
  • HER MARRIAGE, KASEY VAN NORMAN SHARES
  • 00:00:14.250 --> 00:00:16.250
  • THAT NO PART OF OUR LIFE STORY IS WASTED.
  • 00:00:16.280 --> 00:00:19.180
  • - I NEEDED TO EXPERIENCE THE BROKENNESS AND THE SORROW
  • 00:00:19.210 --> 00:00:23.010
  • OF MY SIN BECAUSE THAT IS WHERE HEALING IS.
  • 00:00:23.040 --> 00:00:25.160
  • BECAUSE I'M SPEAKING TO CHRISTIANS WHO FEEL DISCONNECTED
  • 00:00:25.190 --> 00:00:29.020
  • IN SOME WAY TO THE LORD BECAUSE OF THEIR PAST.
  • 00:00:29.050 --> 00:00:32.060
  • NOTHING WASTED -- NEXT ON LIFE TODAY!
  • 00:00:32.090 --> 00:00:36.080
  • 00:00:39.130 --> 00:00:46.100
  • James: Y'ALL ARE GOOD.
  • 00:01:00.250 --> 00:01:03.250
  • WELCOME! WELCOME TO YOU.
  • 00:01:03.250 --> 00:01:05.110
  • JAMES ROBISON HERE,
  • 00:01:05.110 --> 00:01:06.150
  • AND MY WIFE BETTY,
  • 00:01:06.150 --> 00:01:08.100
  • ANNIVERSARY 57!
  • 00:01:12.090 --> 00:01:15.090
  • HARD TO BELIEVE; ISN'T IT?
  • 00:01:15.090 --> 00:01:17.000
  • Betty: WE WERE JUST CHILDREN
  • 00:01:17.000 --> 00:01:18.050
  • WHEN WE GOT MARRIED.
  • 00:01:18.050 --> 00:01:19.120
  • James: WE WERE JUST KIDS.
  • 00:01:19.120 --> 00:01:20.250
  • STILL ARE. WE'RE STILL KIDS.
  • 00:01:20.250 --> 00:01:22.200
  • THIS IS AN AMAZING JOURNEY.
  • 00:01:22.200 --> 00:01:25.140
  • YOU DON'T CALL IT LIKE
  • 00:01:25.140 --> 00:01:27.290
  • THE KIND OF JOURNEY
  • 00:01:27.290 --> 00:01:29.010
  • MOST PEOPLE WANT BUT
  • 00:01:29.030 --> 00:01:32.030
  • THE TITLE KIND OF SUMMARIZES
  • 00:01:32.100 --> 00:01:35.100
  • REALITY, NOTHING WASTED:
  • 00:01:37.190 --> 00:01:40.190
  • GOD USES THE STUFF
  • 00:01:40.190 --> 00:01:41.290
  • YOU WOULDN'T.
  • 00:01:41.290 --> 00:01:44.180
  • KASEY HAS BEEN THROUGH
  • 00:01:44.180 --> 00:01:46.040
  • A LOT OF STUFF.
  • 00:01:46.040 --> 00:01:47.110
  • SHE'S BEEN THROUGH CANCER.
  • 00:01:47.110 --> 00:01:49.030
  • MIRACLE!
  • 00:01:49.030 --> 00:01:50.170
  • KIND OF TOLD HER STORY HERE.
  • 00:01:50.170 --> 00:01:51.290
  • SHE'S BEEN THROUGH REAL
  • 00:01:51.290 --> 00:01:53.140
  • CHALLENGES IN HER LIFE.
  • 00:01:53.140 --> 00:01:55.230
  • AND THEN IN MARRIAGE SHE...
  • 00:01:55.230 --> 00:01:58.090
  • LET'S JUST FACE IT,
  • 00:01:58.090 --> 00:01:59.150
  • SHE TELLS YOU SHE COULD
  • 00:01:59.150 --> 00:02:01.130
  • HAVE WASTED EVERYTHING.
  • 00:02:01.130 --> 00:02:03.180
  • YOU MIGHT SAY IF YOU GET
  • 00:02:03.180 --> 00:02:04.270
  • REAL HONEST ABOUT IT,
  • 00:02:04.270 --> 00:02:06.050
  • WHICH SHE IS TOTALLY HONEST,
  • 00:02:06.050 --> 00:02:08.100
  • SHE MADE A MESS THAT ONLY GOD
  • 00:02:08.100 --> 00:02:10.190
  • COULD PROVE THE TRUTH OF THAT.
  • 00:02:10.230 --> 00:02:13.230
  • WOULD YOU WELCOME KASEY
  • 00:02:13.230 --> 00:02:15.210
  • VAN NORMAN TO LIFE TODAY ?
  • 00:02:15.210 --> 00:02:17.030
  • KASEY, GOOD TO SEE YOU.
  • 00:02:17.230 --> 00:02:20.230
  • Kasey: THANK YOU.
  • 00:02:20.230 --> 00:02:22.070
  • James: A LOT OF STORY HERE.
  • 00:02:22.070 --> 00:02:25.020
  • IT'S CAPTIVATING
  • 00:02:25.020 --> 00:02:26.230
  • SO PEOPLE GET INTO IT
  • 00:02:26.230 --> 00:02:28.200
  • IT'S GOING TO CARRY THEM.
  • 00:02:28.200 --> 00:02:29.200
  • SO YOU GOT A ROUGH START.
  • 00:02:29.200 --> 00:02:31.280
  • IT KIND OF PROBABLY SET THE
  • 00:02:31.280 --> 00:02:33.000
  • STAGE FOR SOME VULNERABILITY
  • 00:02:33.000 --> 00:02:35.230
  • AND SOME INAPPROPRIATE ACTION
  • 00:02:35.230 --> 00:02:38.130
  • BUT THEN YOU GOT
  • 00:02:38.130 --> 00:02:39.260
  • IN A MARRIAGE, AND THEN
  • 00:02:39.260 --> 00:02:41.070
  • INAPPROPRIATE ACTION
  • 00:02:41.070 --> 00:02:42.170
  • CAME AGAIN.
  • 00:02:42.170 --> 00:02:44.100
  • SO IT LOOKS LIKE YOU WERE
  • 00:02:44.100 --> 00:02:45.250
  • PRETTY WELL DIGGING
  • 00:02:45.250 --> 00:02:47.120
  • AN IMPOSSIBLE SITUATION.
  • 00:02:47.150 --> 00:02:50.150
  • THIS MESSAGE IS
  • 00:02:51.280 --> 00:02:53.060
  • SO IMPORTANT TO ME
  • 00:02:53.060 --> 00:02:54.170
  • BECAUSE OUR GOD IS SUCH
  • 00:02:54.170 --> 00:02:56.120
  • AN INTENTIONAL GOD
  • 00:02:56.120 --> 00:02:58.060
  • OF OUR LIFE, OF OUR PAST.
  • 00:03:00.070 --> 00:03:02.090
  • IT'S MEANINGFUL.
  • 00:03:02.090 --> 00:03:03.130
  • IT'S INTENTIONAL.
  • 00:03:03.130 --> 00:03:04.120
  • IT'S PURPOSEFUL.
  • 00:03:04.120 --> 00:03:05.230
  • I THINK OF ANYONE WHO WOULD
  • 00:03:05.230 --> 00:03:08.020
  • WANT TO DISMISS THEIR PAST
  • 00:03:08.020 --> 00:03:09.240
  • OR DISCONNECT THEMSELVES
  • 00:03:09.240 --> 00:03:11.100
  • FROM THEIR PAST EXPERIENCES
  • 00:03:11.100 --> 00:03:12.190
  • IN RELATIONSHIPS
  • 00:03:12.190 --> 00:03:13.280
  • AND YET, I FOUND THE GREATEST
  • 00:03:15.060 --> 00:03:16.150
  • SENSE OF FREEDOM AND PEACE,
  • 00:03:16.150 --> 00:03:19.050
  • AND REALLY THE REALITY OF GOD
  • 00:03:19.050 --> 00:03:21.160
  • OF ME, EVEN THE WORST PARTS
  • 00:03:23.170 --> 00:03:26.010
  • OF ME, EVEN THE BORING
  • 00:03:26.010 --> 00:03:27.240
  • AVERAGE PARTS OF ME,
  • 00:03:27.240 --> 00:03:29.290
  • THE PARTS THAT I DIDN'T
  • 00:03:29.290 --> 00:03:31.090
  • WANT TO LOOK AT,
  • 00:03:31.090 --> 00:03:32.150
  • THAT I DIDN'T WANT
  • 00:03:32.150 --> 00:03:33.190
  • TO TAKE OWNERSHIP OF.
  • 00:03:33.190 --> 00:03:34.260
  • AND WHEN I FINALLY, TRULY
  • 00:03:34.260 --> 00:03:36.250
  • ALLOWED ALL OF THOSE PIECES
  • 00:03:36.250 --> 00:03:38.110
  • TO BECOME A PART OF MY STORY,
  • 00:03:38.110 --> 00:03:40.060
  • I COULD SEE GOD WORKING
  • 00:03:40.060 --> 00:03:41.260
  • TO DRAW ME TO HIMSELF
  • 00:03:41.260 --> 00:03:43.240
  • IN ALL THESE THINGS.
  • 00:03:43.240 --> 00:03:45.280
  • THINGS LIKE A BROKEN HOME
  • 00:03:45.280 --> 00:03:48.270
  • AND A REALLY CHAOTIC,
  • 00:03:48.270 --> 00:03:50.070
  • DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY,
  • 00:03:50.070 --> 00:03:51.290
  • AND A FATHER WHO LEFT;
  • 00:03:52.140 --> 00:03:55.140
  • THINGS THAT I THINK
  • 00:03:55.140 --> 00:03:56.220
  • UNFORTUNATELY ARE SUCH
  • 00:03:56.220 --> 00:03:58.010
  • A COMMON STORY NOW.
  • 00:03:58.010 --> 00:03:59.120
  • James: FROM YOUR CHILDHOOD?
  • 00:03:59.120 --> 00:04:00.230
  • Kasey: FROM MY CHILDHOOD.
  • 00:04:00.230 --> 00:04:03.150
  • I GREW UP IN THE BIBLE BELT
  • 00:04:03.150 --> 00:04:04.270
  • OF THE WORLD, EAST TEXAS.
  • 00:04:04.270 --> 00:04:06.180
  • SO IT IS REALLY COOL
  • 00:04:06.180 --> 00:04:07.250
  • TO BE A CHRISTIAN, AND EASY
  • 00:04:07.250 --> 00:04:09.020
  • TO BE A CHRISTIAN AND THAT'S,
  • 00:04:09.020 --> 00:04:10.140
  • IN AND OF ITSELF CAN BE
  • 00:04:10.140 --> 00:04:11.260
  • A DRUG, GOING TO CHURCH,
  • 00:04:11.260 --> 00:04:13.120
  • RELIGION, DOING THE THINGS
  • 00:04:13.120 --> 00:04:14.200
  • OF GOD THAT
  • 00:04:14.200 --> 00:04:15.260
  • WE COMPLETELY MISS GOD.
  • 00:04:15.260 --> 00:04:18.180
  • I HAD THIS REALLY BIG MOMENT,
  • 00:04:18.180 --> 00:04:20.210
  • THIS CRUX OF MY LIFE STORY
  • 00:04:20.210 --> 00:04:22.070
  • WHEN I WAS 15 YEARS OLD
  • 00:04:22.070 --> 00:04:24.040
  • BECAUSE I WAS REALLY CLINGING
  • 00:04:24.040 --> 00:04:25.150
  • AT EVERYTHING TO MAKE SENSE
  • 00:04:25.150 --> 00:04:27.250
  • OF GOD AND MAKE SENSE
  • 00:04:27.250 --> 00:04:29.110
  • OF WHY I FELT THIS DEEP
  • 00:04:29.110 --> 00:04:31.090
  • SELF-LOATHING, REJECTION,
  • 00:04:31.090 --> 00:04:33.130
  • ABANDONMENT, WHY I WASN'T
  • 00:04:33.130 --> 00:04:34.270
  • ENOUGH, WHY I...
  • 00:04:34.270 --> 00:04:36.030
  • I HAD ALL THOSE QUESTIONS
  • 00:04:36.030 --> 00:04:37.070
  • FOR GOD.
  • 00:04:37.070 --> 00:04:38.250
  • I'LL NEVER FORGET
  • 00:04:38.250 --> 00:04:40.010
  • I WAS 15 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:04:40.010 --> 00:04:41.090
  • I WENT TO A "TRUE LOVE WAITS"
  • 00:04:41.090 --> 00:04:42.110
  • CONFERENCE.
  • 00:04:42.110 --> 00:04:43.140
  • THAT WAS A BIG THING
  • 00:04:43.140 --> 00:04:44.210
  • BACK IN THE '90s
  • 00:04:44.210 --> 00:04:47.040
  • IT'S A LITTLE IRONIC BECAUSE
  • 00:04:47.040 --> 00:04:48.070
  • THEY PLACE ABOUT SEVEN BOYS
  • 00:04:48.070 --> 00:04:50.120
  • THAT LOOK LIKE JUSTIN BIEBER
  • 00:04:50.120 --> 00:04:51.250
  • ON THE STAGE AND THEY SAY,
  • 00:04:51.250 --> 00:04:53.070
  • "DON'T HAVE SEX
  • 00:04:53.070 --> 00:04:54.100
  • WITH THESE GUYS."
  • 00:04:54.100 --> 00:04:55.240
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:04:55.240 --> 00:04:58.060
  • YOU WALK FORWARD
  • 00:04:58.060 --> 00:04:59.160
  • AND YOU GET THIS RING
  • 00:04:59.160 --> 00:05:00.280
  • AND IT IS TO SIGNIFY
  • 00:05:00.280 --> 00:05:02.060
  • YOUR PURITY AND THAT YOU'RE
  • 00:05:02.060 --> 00:05:03.160
  • GOING TO KEEP YOURSELF PURE
  • 00:05:03.160 --> 00:05:04.220
  • UNTIL YOU'RE MARRIED.
  • 00:05:04.220 --> 00:05:06.150
  • THAT MOMENT I REMEMBER
  • 00:05:06.150 --> 00:05:07.200
  • WALKING FORWARD, SMOKE
  • 00:05:07.200 --> 00:05:09.150
  • AND THE GUYS WITH THEIR HAIR
  • 00:05:09.150 --> 00:05:10.200
  • AND EVERYTHING,
  • 00:05:10.200 --> 00:05:12.260
  • AND REALLY MEANING IT.
  • 00:05:12.260 --> 00:05:14.090
  • REALLY MEANING IT AT 15,
  • 00:05:14.090 --> 00:05:15.290
  • AS MUCH AS I KNEW IN MY HEART
  • 00:05:15.290 --> 00:05:17.280
  • THAT I WAS GOING TO PROMISE
  • 00:05:17.280 --> 00:05:19.030
  • MY PURITY TO THE LORD.
  • 00:05:19.030 --> 00:05:22.020
  • AND ABOUT THREE MONTHS AFTER
  • 00:05:22.020 --> 00:05:23.190
  • THAT CONFERENCE I WAS MOLESTED
  • 00:05:23.190 --> 00:05:26.040
  • AND RAPED BY AN OLDER MAN.
  • 00:05:26.040 --> 00:05:29.000
  • AND THAT'S NOT SO MUCH
  • 00:05:29.000 --> 00:05:31.020
  • THE STORY AS IS WHAT
  • 00:05:31.020 --> 00:05:33.090
  • TOOK PLACE AFTER THAT AND
  • 00:05:33.090 --> 00:05:34.270
  • THIS WOUNDING THAT MANIFESTED
  • 00:05:34.270 --> 00:05:36.120
  • ITSELF IN MY HEART
  • 00:05:36.120 --> 00:05:38.210
  • AND IN MY MIND.
  • 00:05:38.210 --> 00:05:40.220
  • AND TO REALLY THINK THAT
  • 00:05:40.220 --> 00:05:42.150
  • YOU ARE NOT USEFUL BUT THEN
  • 00:05:42.200 --> 00:05:45.200
  • OF THAT, FEELING SO UNWORTHY
  • 00:05:49.200 --> 00:05:52.200
  • AND SO USELESS AND
  • 00:05:52.200 --> 00:05:54.240
  • THAT DID A NUMBER IN MY HEART
  • 00:05:57.250 --> 00:05:59.270
  • AND SOUL AS IT WOULD FOR
  • 00:05:59.270 --> 00:06:01.080
  • ANYONE AND HAS FOR SO MANY.
  • 00:06:01.210 --> 00:06:04.210
  • I JUST USED EVERYTHING.
  • 00:06:04.210 --> 00:06:06.070
  • EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO
  • 00:06:06.070 --> 00:06:07.140
  • IMAGINE, BOUGHT THE T-SHIRT,
  • 00:06:07.140 --> 00:06:09.000
  • WENT TO THE CONCERT,
  • 00:06:09.000 --> 00:06:10.290
  • I DID JUST TO TRY TO NUMB
  • 00:06:10.290 --> 00:06:12.060
  • THAT INCLUDING CHURCH.
  • 00:06:12.070 --> 00:06:15.070
  • I JUST LEARNED TO PLAY
  • 00:06:15.070 --> 00:06:16.190
  • THIS PART.
  • 00:06:16.190 --> 00:06:18.070
  • BECAUSE I WAS REALLY IN LOVE
  • 00:06:18.070 --> 00:06:19.140
  • WITH A LIE, I TALK ABOUT
  • 00:06:19.140 --> 00:06:21.040
  • THAT A LOT IN THE BOOK
  • 00:06:21.040 --> 00:06:22.170
  • IS HOW WE CAN BECOME
  • 00:06:22.170 --> 00:06:23.200
  • REALLY CONSUMED WITH THE LIE
  • 00:06:23.200 --> 00:06:24.270
  • BECAUSE WE PLACED SO MUCH
  • 00:06:24.270 --> 00:06:26.030
  • OF OUR RESOURCES AND
  • 00:06:26.030 --> 00:06:27.040
  • OUR TIME AND OUR ENERGY
  • 00:06:27.040 --> 00:06:28.100
  • INTO THIS THING.
  • 00:06:28.100 --> 00:06:29.260
  • AND IF IT'S NOT TRUE OF US,
  • 00:06:29.260 --> 00:06:32.170
  • WHICH IT WASN'T TRUE,
  • 00:06:32.170 --> 00:06:33.290
  • BUT IF IT IS NOT TRUE OF US
  • 00:06:33.290 --> 00:06:35.050
  • IT IS LIKE WE'VE WASTED
  • 00:06:35.050 --> 00:06:36.140
  • SO MUCH TIME WE DON'T WANT
  • 00:06:36.140 --> 00:06:37.200
  • TO DEAL WITH THE REALITY
  • 00:06:37.200 --> 00:06:38.250
  • OF WHAT'S BEEN HAPPENING.
  • 00:06:38.250 --> 00:06:40.070
  • THAT WAS ME.
  • 00:06:40.070 --> 00:06:41.120
  • I DIDN'T WANT TO LOOK AT
  • 00:06:41.120 --> 00:06:43.000
  • THIS PART OF ME THAT WAS
  • 00:06:43.000 --> 00:06:45.140
  • BITTER AND ANGRY BECAUSE
  • 00:06:45.140 --> 00:06:47.180
  • I REALLY FELT LIKE I HAD MADE
  • 00:06:47.180 --> 00:06:48.270
  • A PROMISE TO GOD AND KEPT IT
  • 00:06:48.270 --> 00:06:50.070
  • AND YET GOD HAD NOT KEPT HIS.
  • 00:06:52.270 --> 00:06:55.270
  • AS CRAZY AS IT SOUNDS,
  • 00:06:55.270 --> 00:06:57.250
  • I CAN LOOK BACK AT THIS NOW,
  • 00:06:57.250 --> 00:06:59.140
  • IN HINDSIGHT AND SAY I EVEN
  • 00:06:59.140 --> 00:07:00.280
  • MARRIED MY HUSBAND
  • 00:07:00.280 --> 00:07:02.190
  • AS ANOTHER BAND-AID TO TRY
  • 00:07:02.190 --> 00:07:04.100
  • TO DISTRACT OTHERS AND MYSELF
  • 00:07:04.100 --> 00:07:06.190
  • FROM THE REALITY OF WHO
  • 00:07:06.190 --> 00:07:09.070
  • I WAS AND WHAT I WAS GOING
  • 00:07:09.070 --> 00:07:10.270
  • THROUGH AND THE DEPRESSION.
  • 00:07:10.270 --> 00:07:12.090
  • I REMEMBER JUSTIN,
  • 00:07:12.230 --> 00:07:15.230
  • HE IS A MIGHTY FINE COWBOY
  • 00:07:15.230 --> 00:07:18.210
  • AND HE LOOKS GOOD
  • 00:07:18.210 --> 00:07:20.090
  • IN A PAIR OF WRANGLERS.
  • 00:07:20.140 --> 00:07:23.140
  • AND HE COMES FROM
  • 00:07:23.140 --> 00:07:24.280
  • GOOD BAPTIST STOCK.
  • 00:07:24.280 --> 00:07:26.070
  • HE'S A GOOD GUY AND HE CAME
  • 00:07:26.070 --> 00:07:27.130
  • FROM THIS WONDERFUL FAMILY,
  • 00:07:27.130 --> 00:07:28.240
  • DIDN'T SEEM TO HAVE ALL
  • 00:07:28.240 --> 00:07:30.010
  • THE PROBLEMS THAT I HAD.
  • 00:07:30.010 --> 00:07:32.000
  • HE HAD SAVED HIMSELF
  • 00:07:32.000 --> 00:07:33.070
  • FOR MARRIAGE.
  • 00:07:33.070 --> 00:07:34.130
  • HE TRULY WAS A VIRGIN.
  • 00:07:34.130 --> 00:07:36.130
  • I HAD ALL OF THIS STUFF.
  • 00:07:36.130 --> 00:07:38.110
  • I HAD ALL OF THIS STUFF
  • 00:07:38.110 --> 00:07:40.060
  • AND I COULDN'T BRING MYSELF
  • 00:07:40.060 --> 00:07:41.170
  • TO TELL HIM.
  • 00:07:41.170 --> 00:07:43.140
  • I REMEMBER STANDING AT
  • 00:07:43.140 --> 00:07:44.220
  • THE ALTAR WITH ALL OF
  • 00:07:44.220 --> 00:07:46.060
  • THIS STUFF AND JUST HOPING
  • 00:07:46.060 --> 00:07:47.210
  • AND PRAYING THAT EVERYBODY
  • 00:07:47.210 --> 00:07:49.020
  • WOULD SEE HIM IN HIS GOODNESS
  • 00:07:49.020 --> 00:07:50.250
  • THEN IT WOULD DEFLECT
  • 00:07:50.250 --> 00:07:52.020
  • OFF OF ME.
  • 00:07:52.020 --> 00:07:54.190
  • I LOVED HIM.
  • 00:07:54.190 --> 00:07:55.290
  • I LOVED HIM AS MUCH AS
  • 00:07:55.290 --> 00:07:57.040
  • I KNEW WHAT THAT WAS.
  • 00:07:57.040 --> 00:08:00.060
  • SEVERAL YEARS INTO
  • 00:08:00.060 --> 00:08:01.080
  • OUR MARRIAGE, SEVERAL BABIES
  • 00:08:01.080 --> 00:08:02.230
  • LATER, DEPRESSION LATER,
  • 00:08:04.010 --> 00:08:07.010
  • I WAS ADDICTED
  • 00:08:07.010 --> 00:08:08.130
  • TO PRESCRIPTION PILLS
  • 00:08:08.130 --> 00:08:09.190
  • AND I WOULD FIND MYSELF
  • 00:08:09.190 --> 00:08:10.280
  • PLAYING THIS PART IN THE DAY,
  • 00:08:10.280 --> 00:08:12.190
  • LEADING MINISTRIES,
  • 00:08:12.190 --> 00:08:13.200
  • LEADING BIBLE STUDIES,
  • 00:08:13.200 --> 00:08:15.010
  • LEADING WORSHIP TEAMS,
  • 00:08:15.010 --> 00:08:16.080
  • HAD A BEAUTIFUL HOME,
  • 00:08:16.080 --> 00:08:17.110
  • HOSTED LOTS OF PARTIES
  • 00:08:17.110 --> 00:08:19.080
  • AND ABOUT 2:00 IN THE MORNING
  • 00:08:19.080 --> 00:08:21.030
  • I WOULD WAKE UP AND
  • 00:08:21.030 --> 00:08:22.090
  • I WOULD FIND MYSELF
  • 00:08:22.090 --> 00:08:23.180
  • IN OUR CLOSET TUCKED BENEATH
  • 00:08:23.180 --> 00:08:26.100
  • OUR CLOTHES IN
  • 00:08:26.100 --> 00:08:27.190
  • THE CORNER SOBBING.
  • 00:08:27.190 --> 00:08:30.110
  • IT WAS EXACTLY --
  • 00:08:30.110 --> 00:08:33.000
  • IT WAS ME AS A CHILD.
  • 00:08:33.000 --> 00:08:35.020
  • HERE I AM, A 25-YEAR OLD WOMAN
  • 00:08:35.020 --> 00:08:36.160
  • AND I'M STILL THIS FIVE,
  • 00:08:36.160 --> 00:08:39.060
  • TEN-YEAR OLD GIRL
  • 00:08:39.060 --> 00:08:41.110
  • COMPLETELY INSECURE,
  • 00:08:41.110 --> 00:08:43.120
  • FEELING COMPLETELY REJECTED,
  • 00:08:43.120 --> 00:08:44.250
  • AND FEELING LIKE
  • 00:08:47.170 --> 00:08:49.010
  • AT THE END OF THE DAY
  • 00:08:49.010 --> 00:08:50.090
  • EVENTUALLY, JUSTIN WAS
  • 00:08:50.090 --> 00:08:51.120
  • GOING TO REJECT ME IF
  • 00:08:51.120 --> 00:08:52.160
  • WE HAD WONDERFUL COMMUNITY,
  • 00:08:55.280 --> 00:08:57.120
  • WONDERFUL FRIENDS
  • 00:08:57.120 --> 00:08:58.180
  • IN OUR CHURCH.
  • 00:08:58.180 --> 00:09:00.130
  • I HAD A BEST FRIEND AND
  • 00:09:00.130 --> 00:09:03.120
  • I BEGAN TO SHARE WITH THEM.
  • 00:09:03.120 --> 00:09:06.100
  • AND THEY BEGAN TO NOTICE
  • 00:09:06.100 --> 00:09:07.140
  • IN ME CHANGES OF DEPRESSION
  • 00:09:07.140 --> 00:09:09.090
  • AND ISOLATION; JUST A DARKNESS
  • 00:09:09.170 --> 00:09:12.170
  • IN ME AND BECOME CONCERNED,
  • 00:09:12.170 --> 00:09:14.220
  • SPECIFICALLY, THE HUSBAND,
  • 00:09:14.220 --> 00:09:16.000
  • MY BEST FRIEND'S HUSBAND
  • 00:09:16.000 --> 00:09:17.050
  • BECAME CONCERNED
  • 00:09:17.050 --> 00:09:18.120
  • AND WE BEGAN TO TALK.
  • 00:09:18.120 --> 00:09:19.170
  • AND AT FIRST IT WAS JUST
  • 00:09:19.170 --> 00:09:21.100
  • A BOND, JUST AN EMOTIONAL
  • 00:09:21.100 --> 00:09:23.130
  • BOND OR TIE.
  • 00:09:23.130 --> 00:09:24.210
  • HE HAD EXPERIENCED SOME OF
  • 00:09:24.210 --> 00:09:25.270
  • THOSE THINGS IN HIS OWN LIFE
  • 00:09:25.270 --> 00:09:27.030
  • AND HIS OWN CHILDHOOD
  • 00:09:27.030 --> 00:09:28.100
  • AND WE JUST BONDED IN THAT.
  • 00:09:28.100 --> 00:09:29.240
  • AND SLOWLY OVER TIME
  • 00:09:29.240 --> 00:09:31.260
  • I REALLY FELT LIKE
  • 00:09:31.260 --> 00:09:33.150
  • OH, MAYBE THIS WAS THE MAN
  • 00:09:33.150 --> 00:09:35.280
  • I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE WITH.
  • 00:09:35.280 --> 00:09:37.090
  • MAYBE I MISSED IT.
  • 00:09:37.090 --> 00:09:38.180
  • MAYBE IN ALL OF MY MESS,
  • 00:09:38.180 --> 00:09:40.060
  • I WASN'T SUPPOSED TO END UP
  • 00:09:40.060 --> 00:09:41.180
  • WITH JUSTIN AND I WAS
  • 00:09:41.180 --> 00:09:42.250
  • SUPPOSED TO... AND THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:09:42.250 --> 00:09:44.020
  • WE DO, WE JUSTIFY OUR SIN.
  • 00:09:44.020 --> 00:09:46.080
  • AND SATAN IS REALLY TRICKY
  • 00:09:46.080 --> 00:09:47.140
  • BECAUSE WE CAN EVEN
  • 00:09:47.140 --> 00:09:48.260
  • JUSTIFY OUR SIN FOR
  • 00:09:48.260 --> 00:09:50.000
  • THE SAKE OF OTHERS.
  • 00:09:50.000 --> 00:09:51.140
  • AND I WOULD USE GOD
  • 00:09:51.140 --> 00:09:53.260
  • AND I WOULD USE NOT WANTING
  • 00:09:53.260 --> 00:09:55.110
  • TO HURT MY HUSBAND
  • 00:09:55.110 --> 00:09:56.210
  • TO JUSTIFY THIS AFFAIR.
  • 00:09:57.040 --> 00:10:00.040
  • I WAS IN AN ADULTEROUS
  • 00:10:00.040 --> 00:10:01.110
  • RELATIONSHIP WITH THIS MAN
  • 00:10:01.110 --> 00:10:02.230
  • FOR THREE YEARS IN OUR CHURCH,
  • 00:10:02.230 --> 00:10:04.050
  • IN LEADERSHIP IN OUR CHURCH.
  • 00:10:04.050 --> 00:10:06.020
  • AT THE END OF THREE YEARS
  • 00:10:06.020 --> 00:10:07.140
  • I WAS A MESS --
  • 00:10:07.140 --> 00:10:09.250
  • LITERALLY, AND I'M NOT TRYING
  • 00:10:09.250 --> 00:10:12.050
  • TO BE OVER SPIRITUAL,
  • 00:10:12.050 --> 00:10:13.180
  • I REALLY AM NOT.
  • 00:10:13.180 --> 00:10:14.260
  • I WAS DYING FROM THE INSIDE
  • 00:10:14.260 --> 00:10:16.040
  • OUT BECAUSE GOD DOESN'T
  • 00:10:16.040 --> 00:10:17.120
  • LET HIS CHILDREN
  • 00:10:17.120 --> 00:10:18.200
  • SIN SUCCESSFULLY.
  • 00:10:18.200 --> 00:10:19.270
  • AND I REALLY TRULY WAS
  • 00:10:19.270 --> 00:10:21.040
  • A BELIEVER, NOT THE STORY
  • 00:10:21.040 --> 00:10:22.090
  • OF ALL THIS MESS,
  • 00:10:22.090 --> 00:10:23.200
  • THEN I CAME TO KNOW THE LORD.
  • 00:10:23.200 --> 00:10:24.270
  • I REALLY KNEW THE LORD,
  • 00:10:24.270 --> 00:10:26.120
  • I REALLY WANTED HIM
  • 00:10:26.120 --> 00:10:27.140
  • TO SAVE ME.
  • 00:10:27.140 --> 00:10:28.280
  • AND HOW IN THE WORLD WOULD
  • 00:10:28.280 --> 00:10:30.010
  • SOMEBODY LIKE THAT IN THIS
  • 00:10:30.010 --> 00:10:31.080
  • HABITUAL PATTERN OF SIN
  • 00:10:31.080 --> 00:10:34.080
  • IN HER LIFE, I MEAN,
  • 00:10:34.080 --> 00:10:36.210
  • IT WRECKS ME
  • 00:10:36.210 --> 00:10:37.260
  • TO THINK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:10:37.260 --> 00:10:40.000
  • James: OKAY. SO NOW
  • 00:10:40.000 --> 00:10:41.100
  • THIS GETS FOUND OUT THIS GUY
  • 00:10:42.180 --> 00:10:43.190
  • HAS GOT TO BE GONE.
  • 00:10:43.190 --> 00:10:44.220
  • SO I'LL CATCH EVERYTHING
  • 00:10:44.220 --> 00:10:45.290
  • I DESERVE.
  • 00:10:45.290 --> 00:10:47.040
  • YOUR OWN GRAVE; RIGHT?
  • 00:10:48.160 --> 00:10:50.010
  • AND BASICALLY, THAT'S WHERE
  • 00:10:50.010 --> 00:10:51.100
  • YOU'RE LIVING.
  • 00:10:51.100 --> 00:10:52.150
  • WHAT IN THE WORLD HAPPENED
  • 00:10:52.150 --> 00:10:53.190
  • BECAUSE IT JUST LOOKS TO ME
  • 00:10:53.190 --> 00:10:54.270
  • LIKE, FROM AN AVERAGE POINT
  • 00:10:54.270 --> 00:10:57.160
  • OF VIEW IT IS JUST HOPELESS.
  • 00:10:57.160 --> 00:10:58.240
  • Kasey: YEAH.
  • 00:10:58.240 --> 00:11:01.050
  • EVERYTHING WAS EXPOSED.
  • 00:11:01.050 --> 00:11:03.000
  • SHE FOUND THE PHONE RECORDS
  • 00:11:03.000 --> 00:11:04.150
  • AND THERE IT WAS,
  • 00:11:04.150 --> 00:11:05.220
  • THIS LIE THAT WE BUILT
  • 00:11:05.220 --> 00:11:07.140
  • AND OUR LITTLE WORLD,
  • 00:11:07.140 --> 00:11:08.200
  • OUR LITTLE FICTIONAL WORLD.
  • 00:11:08.200 --> 00:11:09.270
  • James: THE OTHER PERSON'S
  • 00:11:09.270 --> 00:11:11.040
  • SPOUSE.
  • 00:11:11.040 --> 00:11:12.090
  • Kasey: YES. MY BEST FRIEND
  • 00:11:12.090 --> 00:11:13.110
  • -- MY BEST FRIEND.
  • 00:11:13.110 --> 00:11:14.190
  • TOTALLY SPIRIT --
  • 00:11:14.190 --> 00:11:16.070
  • James: YEAH, IT DOESN'T TAKE
  • 00:11:16.070 --> 00:11:17.170
  • A REAL SPIRIT-FILLED PERSON
  • 00:11:17.170 --> 00:11:18.210
  • TO FIGURE OUT THEY OUGHT
  • 00:11:18.210 --> 00:11:19.230
  • TO TELL YOU OFF;
  • 00:11:19.230 --> 00:11:20.250
  • YOU KNOW THAT?
  • 00:11:20.250 --> 00:11:21.270
  • YOU REALLY MESSED UP.
  • 00:11:21.270 --> 00:11:22.290
  • Kasey: YES!
  • 00:11:22.290 --> 00:11:24.270
  • James: I MEAN ITS THE TRUTH.
  • 00:11:24.270 --> 00:11:26.190
  • THE DEVIL IS TELLING YOU
  • 00:11:26.190 --> 00:11:27.260
  • WHAT YOU ARE.
  • 00:11:27.260 --> 00:11:29.010
  • YOU HAVE TO AGREE WITH HIM.
  • 00:11:29.010 --> 00:11:30.060
  • Kasey: NO. I THINK
  • 00:11:30.060 --> 00:11:31.120
  • THIS IS SO IMPORTANT.
  • 00:11:31.120 --> 00:11:32.170
  • I'M SO GLAD THAT THIS IS WHAT
  • 00:11:32.170 --> 00:11:33.220
  • I GO THROUGH IN THE BOOK
  • 00:11:33.220 --> 00:11:34.280
  • BECAUSE I NEEDED TO EXPERIENCE
  • 00:11:34.280 --> 00:11:36.180
  • THE BROKENNESS AND
  • 00:11:36.180 --> 00:11:37.270
  • THE SORROW OF MY SIN BECAUSE
  • 00:11:37.270 --> 00:11:39.070
  • IT IS IN THIS HONEST PLACE,
  • 00:11:41.020 --> 00:11:43.000
  • AND THIS PURITY.
  • 00:11:43.000 --> 00:11:44.140
  • AND YOU EVEN SEE DAVID
  • 00:11:44.140 --> 00:11:46.080
  • CRYING OUT AND SAYING,
  • 00:11:46.080 --> 00:11:47.150
  • "THANK YOU FOR BREAKING
  • 00:11:47.150 --> 00:11:48.240
  • THAT YOU CAN PURGE ME
  • 00:11:50.000 --> 00:11:51.040
  • INTO MY SECRET HEART
  • 00:11:51.040 --> 00:11:52.180
  • AND CLEAN ME WITH HYSSOP.
  • 00:11:52.180 --> 00:11:54.060
  • HYSSOP WAS A PLANT THAT
  • 00:11:54.060 --> 00:11:55.110
  • WAS USED FOR MEDICINE.
  • 00:11:55.110 --> 00:11:57.000
  • James: SO YOU WEREN'T LOOKING
  • 00:11:57.000 --> 00:11:58.040
  • AT YOUR FAILURE AS SOMETHING
  • 00:11:58.040 --> 00:11:59.050
  • TO BE DEFENDED.
  • 00:11:59.050 --> 00:12:00.060
  • YOU WEREN'T TRYING
  • 00:12:00.060 --> 00:12:01.060
  • TO LIKE DEFEND YOURSELF.
  • 00:12:01.060 --> 00:12:02.050
  • YOU ACTUALLY...
  • 00:12:02.050 --> 00:12:03.070
  • Kasey: NOT AT THAT MOMENT,
  • 00:12:03.070 --> 00:12:04.070
  • I WAS DONE.
  • 00:12:04.070 --> 00:12:05.080
  • I WAS BEGGING THE LORD BECAUSE
  • 00:12:05.080 --> 00:12:06.080
  • I COULD NOT CARRY
  • 00:12:06.080 --> 00:12:07.080
  • Betty: WELL, YOU HAD TO HAVE
  • 00:12:08.120 --> 00:12:09.140
  • LIVED WITH LOW SELF-ESTEEM.
  • 00:12:09.140 --> 00:12:10.220
  • YOU DIDN'T SEE ANYTHING
  • 00:12:10.220 --> 00:12:11.270
  • GOOD IN YOURSELF.
  • 00:12:11.270 --> 00:12:13.000
  • I FEEL LIKE MAYBE EVEN
  • 00:12:13.000 --> 00:12:15.060
  • THAT HE GAVE YOU, YOU SAW
  • 00:12:16.090 --> 00:12:17.260
  • THE GOODNESS IN HIM AND
  • 00:12:17.260 --> 00:12:19.030
  • FELT SOME OF THAT GOODNESS
  • 00:12:19.030 --> 00:12:20.070
  • WOULD RUB OFF ON YOU.
  • 00:12:20.070 --> 00:12:22.060
  • Kasey: THAT'S EXACTLY,
  • 00:12:22.060 --> 00:12:23.090
  • BETTY WHAT I THOUGHT.
  • 00:12:23.090 --> 00:12:24.110
  • James: BUT YOU COULDN'T
  • 00:12:24.110 --> 00:12:25.130
  • REALLY BELIEVE IT WOULD.
  • 00:12:25.130 --> 00:12:26.150
  • HOW COULD IT POSSIBLY?
  • 00:12:26.150 --> 00:12:27.170
  • Kasey: YES. SO HERE'S
  • 00:12:27.170 --> 00:12:28.210
  • WHAT HAPPENED AND THIS IS
  • 00:12:28.210 --> 00:12:29.230
  • WHERE THE BOOK REALLY STARTS.
  • 00:12:29.230 --> 00:12:30.250
  • THIS IS TEN YEARS AGO,
  • 00:12:30.250 --> 00:12:31.270
  • THIS IS A DECADE
  • 00:12:31.270 --> 00:12:33.000
  • OF HINDSIGHT HERE.
  • 00:12:33.000 --> 00:12:34.160
  • HERE'S JUSTIN AND HE IS
  • 00:12:34.160 --> 00:12:35.260
  • HEARING THIS INFORMATION,
  • 00:12:35.260 --> 00:12:37.240
  • AND COMPLETELY BETRAYED,
  • 00:12:37.240 --> 00:12:38.260
  • AND HE IS THINKING
  • 00:12:38.260 --> 00:12:40.030
  • EVERYTHING THAT ANYBODY
  • 00:12:40.030 --> 00:12:41.060
  • WOULD THINK AT THAT MOMENT.
  • 00:12:41.060 --> 00:12:42.070
  • James: IT WASN'T LIKE
  • 00:12:42.070 --> 00:12:43.080
  • THIS WOMAN CAME AND
  • 00:12:43.080 --> 00:12:44.070
  • REDEMPTIVELY DUMPED
  • 00:12:44.070 --> 00:12:45.080
  • ALL OF THIS ON HIM EITHER.
  • 00:12:45.080 --> 00:12:46.110
  • BOW!
  • 00:12:46.110 --> 00:12:48.000
  • Kasey: AND HE WANTS TO LEAVE
  • 00:12:48.000 --> 00:12:49.050
  • AND HE IS ANGRY AND
  • 00:12:49.050 --> 00:12:50.060
  • HE IS HURT AND ALL OF
  • 00:12:50.060 --> 00:12:51.100
  • THOSE FEELINGS HE FELT.
  • 00:12:51.100 --> 00:12:52.230
  • I FULLY EXPECTED HIM TO.
  • 00:12:52.230 --> 00:12:55.100
  • INSTEAD, AND THIS ISN'T
  • 00:12:55.100 --> 00:12:56.250
  • EVERYONE'S STORY BUT
  • 00:12:56.250 --> 00:12:57.260
  • THIS IS MY STORY.
  • 00:12:57.260 --> 00:12:59.170
  • AND THIS IS HOW THE LORD
  • 00:12:59.170 --> 00:13:00.230
  • BECAME REAL TO ME AND
  • 00:13:00.230 --> 00:13:01.290
  • THAT'S THE POINT OF THIS,
  • 00:13:01.290 --> 00:13:03.170
  • IS I WANT CHRISTIANS TO STOP
  • 00:13:03.170 --> 00:13:05.100
  • LIVING WITH GOD AS A CONCEPT.
  • 00:13:05.100 --> 00:13:07.010
  • I WANT HIM TO BE REAL TO THEM
  • 00:13:07.010 --> 00:13:09.130
  • AND EXPERIENCE HIM.
  • 00:13:09.130 --> 00:13:12.020
  • AND THAT CAME IN THE FORM
  • 00:13:12.020 --> 00:13:13.090
  • OF MY MAN STANDING THERE AND
  • 00:13:13.090 --> 00:13:15.030
  • SAYING, "HEY, I'M SO HURT."
  • 00:13:15.070 --> 00:13:18.070
  • THESE WERE HIS EXACT WORDS.
  • 00:13:18.070 --> 00:13:20.190
  • "BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW
  • 00:13:20.190 --> 00:13:22.100
  • TO NOT LOVE YOU.
  • 00:13:22.100 --> 00:13:24.250
  • I DON'T KNOW HOW
  • 00:13:24.250 --> 00:13:26.060
  • TO NOT LOVE YOU."
  • 00:13:26.060 --> 00:13:27.130
  • James: GOD BLESS HIM!
  • 00:13:27.130 --> 00:13:28.200
  • WHAT'S HIS NAME?
  • 00:13:28.200 --> 00:13:29.250
  • Kasey: JUSTIN.
  • 00:13:29.250 --> 00:13:31.010
  • James: JUSTIN,
  • 00:13:31.010 --> 00:13:32.080
  • THAT'S AMAZING, BUDDY.
  • 00:13:32.080 --> 00:13:33.260
  • THAT'S MUCH OF A MAN
  • 00:13:33.260 --> 00:13:35.120
  • BUT IT IS THAT MAN.
  • 00:13:35.120 --> 00:13:37.050
  • SO MUCH BIGGER
  • 00:13:37.050 --> 00:13:39.010
  • THAN YOU IN YOU.
  • 00:13:39.010 --> 00:13:40.120
  • AND I JUST ADMIRE YOU, SALUTE,
  • 00:13:41.130 --> 00:13:44.130
  • I WISH YOUR PICTURE WAS BACK
  • 00:13:44.130 --> 00:13:45.250
  • HERE WITH YOUR WIFE.
  • 00:13:45.250 --> 00:13:47.190
  • I LOOK BACK HERE TO SEE
  • 00:13:47.190 --> 00:13:48.210
  • YOU'RE THE REAL DEAL, MAN.
  • 00:13:51.000 --> 00:13:52.180
  • YOU LET HIM BE
  • 00:13:52.180 --> 00:13:53.220
  • WHO HE IS IN YOU.
  • 00:13:53.220 --> 00:13:54.250
  • I WANT TO THANK YOU, JUSTIN.
  • 00:13:54.250 --> 00:13:56.000
  • FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART,
  • 00:13:56.000 --> 00:13:57.060
  • THAT LOVE FOR HER.
  • 00:13:58.240 --> 00:14:01.010
  • BECAUSE YOU KNOW I WAS
  • 00:14:01.010 --> 00:14:02.140
  • ALREADY DOING THE JUDGE/JURY
  • 00:14:02.140 --> 00:14:04.180
  • DEAL ALL BY MYSELF.
  • 00:14:06.010 --> 00:14:09.010
  • SHE IS FEELING THE SAME WAY,
  • 00:14:09.010 --> 00:14:11.160
  • AND YOU SHOWED US SOMETHING
  • 00:14:11.160 --> 00:14:12.220
  • SO MUCH GREATER,
  • 00:14:12.220 --> 00:14:14.000
  • YOU SHOWED HER SOMETHING
  • 00:14:14.000 --> 00:14:15.040
  • SO MUCH GREATER, AND NOW
  • 00:14:15.040 --> 00:14:16.110
  • THEN AS A COUPLE,
  • 00:14:16.110 --> 00:14:17.130
  • YOU'RE SHOWING A WHOLE LOT
  • 00:14:17.130 --> 00:14:18.150
  • OF PEOPLE SOMETHING
  • 00:14:18.150 --> 00:14:19.200
  • MUCH GREATER.
  • 00:14:19.200 --> 00:14:20.260
  • YOU'VE MADE YOUR HOME
  • 00:14:20.260 --> 00:14:22.030
  • INTO A HAVEN FOR THE HURTING
  • 00:14:22.030 --> 00:14:23.190
  • AND YOU'RE TRYING TO GET

  • GOD'S ARMS AROUND PEOPLE;

  • RIGHT?
  • 00:14:25.240 --> 00:14:26.260
  • Kasey: YES. YES!
  • 00:14:26.260 --> 00:14:28.020
  • James: AND DON'T YOU HAVE
  • 00:14:28.020 --> 00:14:29.030
  • A MINISTRY NOW?
  • 00:14:29.030 --> 00:14:30.050
  • THE NAME IF THEY WANT TO KNOW
  • 00:14:30.050 --> 00:14:31.100
  • HOW DO WE MAYBE GET SOME HELP
  • 00:14:31.100 --> 00:14:32.120
  • THAT Y'ALL ARE OFFERING.
  • 00:14:32.120 --> 00:14:33.140
  • TO FIND IT?
  • 00:14:34.170 --> 00:14:35.180
  • Kasey: MY WEBSITE,
  • 00:14:35.180 --> 00:14:36.200
  • KASEYVANNORMAN.ORG.
  • 00:14:36.200 --> 00:14:37.230
  • James: AND YOU DO HAVE HELP
  • 00:14:37.230 --> 00:14:38.270
  • IN THE COLLEGE STATION AREA
  • 00:14:38.270 --> 00:14:40.050
  • GO AHEAD AND FINISH THE STORY.
  • 00:14:42.070 --> 00:14:43.090
  • I DIDN'T MEAN
  • 00:14:43.090 --> 00:14:44.120
  • TO CUT YOU OFF HERE.
  • 00:14:44.120 --> 00:14:45.220
  • BUT I WAS FIXING TO LEAVE.
  • 00:14:45.220 --> 00:14:47.100
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:14:47.100 --> 00:14:50.030
  • THIS WHOLE DEAL IS THAT
  • 00:14:50.030 --> 00:14:52.170
  • HE'S SHOWING US JESUS
  • 00:14:52.170 --> 00:14:54.180
  • BUT IT GOT ON YOU.
  • 00:14:54.180 --> 00:14:56.050
  • Kasey: RIGHT!
  • 00:14:56.050 --> 00:14:57.100
  • AND THAT IS WHERE THE GAP
  • 00:14:57.100 --> 00:14:58.120
  • THERE WAS A GAP IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:14:59.150 --> 00:15:00.160
  • AND I THINK THAT'S A BIG PART
  • 00:15:00.160 --> 00:15:01.180
  • OF THE BOOK IS I'M SPEAKING
  • 00:15:01.180 --> 00:15:02.220
  • TO CHRISTIANS WHO FEEL
  • 00:15:02.220 --> 00:15:04.110
  • DISCONNECTED IN SOME WAY
  • 00:15:04.110 --> 00:15:05.260
  • OF THEIR PAST.
  • 00:15:06.290 --> 00:15:07.290
  • SO THERE'S MESSAGING OUT THERE
  • 00:15:07.290 --> 00:15:10.080
  • NOW THAT'S SAYING WE'RE NOT
  • 00:15:10.080 --> 00:15:11.210
  • OUR PAST, WE'RE NOT DEFINED
  • 00:15:11.210 --> 00:15:12.260
  • BY OUR PAST BUT
  • 00:15:12.260 --> 00:15:14.050
  • AS A PROFESSIONAL COUNSELOR,
  • 00:15:14.050 --> 00:15:15.060
  • I CAN TELL YOU IT'S JUST
  • 00:15:15.060 --> 00:15:16.170
  • PHYSIOLOGICALLY IMPOSSIBLE
  • 00:15:16.170 --> 00:15:17.280
  • NOT TO BE DEFINED
  • 00:15:17.280 --> 00:15:19.030
  • BY YOUR PAST.
  • 00:15:19.030 --> 00:15:20.100
  • AND THERE'S SOMETHING
  • 00:15:20.100 --> 00:15:21.140
  • SO LIBERATING AND CLARIFYING
  • 00:15:21.140 --> 00:15:22.260
  • WHEN WE TAKE OWNERSHIP
  • 00:15:22.260 --> 00:15:24.030
  • AND EMBRACE THOSE PARTS OF US.
  • 00:15:24.030 --> 00:15:25.230
  • AND FOR ME, THIS IS WHERE
  • 00:15:25.230 --> 00:15:27.260
  • GOD WAS NO LONGER A CONCEPT
  • 00:15:27.260 --> 00:15:29.180
  • OR SOMETHING I JUST SAID
  • 00:15:29.180 --> 00:15:30.210
  • THAT SOUNDED GOOD
  • 00:15:30.210 --> 00:15:31.250
  • OR A MESSAGE.
  • 00:15:31.250 --> 00:15:33.130
  • HE WAS MY REALITY BECAUSE
  • 00:15:33.130 --> 00:15:34.280
  • NOW I HAVE THIS MAN WHO IS,
  • 00:15:35.010 --> 00:15:38.010
  • I HAVE NOTHING TO OFFER HIM,
  • 00:15:38.010 --> 00:15:40.050
  • I HAVE CHEATED ON HIM,
  • 00:15:40.050 --> 00:15:41.120
  • WHICH IS WHAT WE CAN DO
  • 00:15:41.120 --> 00:15:42.190
  • TO THE LORD, JUST PROSTITUTE
  • 00:15:42.190 --> 00:15:43.210
  • OURSELVES OUT TO ALL
  • 00:15:43.210 --> 00:15:45.080
  • THESE OTHER GODS AND
  • 00:15:45.080 --> 00:15:46.140
  • JUST CHEAT ON HIM, AND RUN
  • 00:15:46.140 --> 00:15:47.250
  • THE OTHER DIRECTION.
  • 00:15:47.250 --> 00:15:49.140
  • AND YET, HERE IS JESUS
  • 00:15:49.140 --> 00:15:51.130
  • STANDING HERE SAYING,
  • 00:15:51.130 --> 00:15:52.180
  • "I DON'T KNOW HOW
  • 00:15:52.180 --> 00:15:54.120
  • TO NOT LOVE YOU.
  • 00:15:54.120 --> 00:15:56.040
  • TO NOT LOVE YOU
  • 00:15:56.040 --> 00:15:57.080
  • WOULD BE TO TURN ON MYSELF
  • 00:15:57.080 --> 00:15:58.170
  • AND I'M HERE TO DO
  • 00:15:58.170 --> 00:15:59.190
  • THE WILL OF THE FATHER
  • 00:15:59.190 --> 00:16:00.260
  • WHICH IS TO LOVE YOU."
  • 00:16:00.260 --> 00:16:03.010
  • AND THAT IS THE WORK OF
  • 00:16:03.010 --> 00:16:04.200
  • THE GOSPEL IN OUR LIVES.
  • 00:16:04.200 --> 00:16:05.290
  • THAT IS THE GOOD NEWS
  • 00:16:05.290 --> 00:16:07.060
  • THAT ON OUR WORST DAY IN
  • 00:16:07.060 --> 00:16:08.280
  • OUR MOST UNLIKELY PLACES,
  • 00:16:08.280 --> 00:16:11.060
  • GOD IS USING THAT MATERIAL,
  • 00:16:11.060 --> 00:16:13.120
  • THAT RESOURCE.
  • 00:16:13.120 --> 00:16:14.220
  • NOT TAKING FROM SOMEBODY
  • 00:16:14.220 --> 00:16:15.280
  • ELSE'S GOOD DAY OR BAD DAY,
  • 00:16:15.280 --> 00:16:17.220
  • HE IS USING OUR LIFE,
  • 00:16:17.220 --> 00:16:20.110
  • OUR STORY.
  • 00:16:20.110 --> 00:16:21.240
  • AND FOR US TO FIND THE WORDS
  • 00:16:21.240 --> 00:16:23.130
  • AND THE LANGUAGE TO PUT
  • 00:16:23.130 --> 00:16:24.160
  • AROUND THAT IS POWERFUL
  • 00:16:24.160 --> 00:16:26.180
  • BECAUSE IT INTEGRATES US
  • 00:16:26.180 --> 00:16:27.290
  • WITH WHO GOD IS AND
  • 00:16:27.290 --> 00:16:29.010
  • IT DRAWS US INTO HIS WILL
  • 00:16:29.010 --> 00:16:30.210
  • FOR OUR LIFE.
  • 00:16:30.210 --> 00:16:32.180
  • I HOPE THIS HELPS
  • 00:16:32.180 --> 00:16:33.260
  • READERS DO THAT.
  • 00:16:33.260 --> 00:16:35.020
  • James: THE BOOK IS
  • 00:16:35.020 --> 00:16:36.060
  • SO WELL WRITTEN.
  • 00:16:36.060 --> 00:16:37.080
  • WOULD YOU SAY THANK YOU
  • 00:16:37.080 --> 00:16:38.100
  • TO GOD?
  • 00:16:38.100 --> 00:16:39.140
  • THANKS TO KASEY AND JUSTIN?
  • 00:16:41.210 --> 00:16:44.210
  • SHE JUST DOWNLOADED
  • 00:16:44.210 --> 00:16:46.120
  • SO MUCH TRUTH.
  • 00:16:46.120 --> 00:16:49.020
  • WHAT SHE IS SAYING ABOUT
  • 00:16:49.020 --> 00:16:50.220
  • HOW GOD IS THIS WAY AND
  • 00:16:50.220 --> 00:16:53.070
  • HE TAKES THE BROKENNESS
  • 00:16:53.070 --> 00:16:55.110
  • THAT WE'RE TREATING AND
  • 00:16:55.110 --> 00:16:57.000
  • TRYING TO MEDICATE IN ALL
  • 00:16:57.000 --> 00:17:00.020
  • THE WRONG WAYS, AND PEOPLE
  • 00:17:00.020 --> 00:17:01.130
  • AND GETTING AWAY FROM REALITY
  • 00:17:03.110 --> 00:17:06.060
  • RATHER THAN LETTING THE LORD
  • 00:17:06.060 --> 00:17:07.050
  • TAKE THAT REALITY
  • 00:17:07.050 --> 00:17:08.140
  • AND MAKE SOMETHING
  • 00:17:08.140 --> 00:17:09.190
  • INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:17:09.190 --> 00:17:10.250
  • WHICH THIS BIG MESS PROVES
  • 00:17:12.010 --> 00:17:13.110
  • IT WASN'T WASTED.
  • 00:17:13.110 --> 00:17:14.250
  • BUT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:17:14.250 --> 00:17:16.000
  • THE GREATNESS OF GOD
  • 00:17:16.000 --> 00:17:17.150
  • ENABLED SOMEBODY TO DO THAT
  • 00:17:17.150 --> 00:17:18.190
  • WHICH YOU COULDN'T DO,
  • 00:17:18.190 --> 00:17:19.250
  • LIKE WHAT JUSTIN DID.

  • 00:22:55.110 --> 00:22:56.140
  • JUSTIN, I WANT YOU
  • 00:22:56.140 --> 00:22:57.160
  • TO SEND ME YOUR PICTURE. OKAY?
  • 00:22:57.160 --> 00:22:59.020
  • I'M GOING TO PRAY FOR YOU.
  • 00:22:59.020 --> 00:23:00.210
  • NEED MORE LIKE YOU.
  • 00:23:00.210 --> 00:23:02.050
  • I WOKE UP THIS MORNING
  • 00:23:21.010 --> 00:23:23.020
  • SAW A WORLD FULL OF TROUBLE
  • 00:23:23.050 --> 00:23:25.020
  • NOW I THOUGHT, HOW'D WE EVER GET SO FAR DOWN
  • 00:23:25.050 --> 00:23:27.230
  • HOW'S IT EVER GONNA TURN AROUND
  • 00:23:27.260 --> 00:23:29.260
  • SO I TURNED MY EYES TO HEAVEN
  • 00:23:29.290 --> 00:23:33.100
  • I THOUGHT, "GOD, WHY DON'T YOU DO SOMETHING?"
  • 00:23:33.130 --> 00:23:38.100
  • WELL, I JUST COULDN'T BEAR THE THOUGHT
  • 00:23:38.130 --> 00:23:41.180
  • OF PEOPLE LIVING IN POVERTY
  • 00:23:41.210 --> 00:23:43.200
  • CHILDREN SOLD INTO SLAVERY
  • 00:23:43.230 --> 00:23:45.240
  • THE THOUGHT DISGUSTED ME
  • 00:23:45.270 --> 00:23:47.280
  • SO, I SHOOK MY FIST AT HEAVEN
  • 00:23:48.010 --> 00:23:51.090
  • SAID, "GOD, WHY DON'T YOU DO SOMETHING?"
  • 00:23:51.120 --> 00:23:55.090
  • HE SAID, "I DID, I CREATED YOU"
  • 00:23:55.120 --> 00:24:03.100
  • IF NOT US, THEN WHO
  • 00:24:06.100 --> 00:24:10.220
  • IF NOT ME AND YOU
  • 00:24:10.250 --> 00:24:14.240
  • RIGHT NOW, IT'S TIME FOR US TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:24:14.270 --> 00:24:24.020
  • IF NOT NOW, THEN WHEN
  • 00:24:24.050 --> 00:24:28.180
  • WILL WE SEE AN END TO ALL THIS PAIN
  • 00:24:28.210 --> 00:24:36.110
  • IT'S NOT ENOUGH TO DO NOTHING
  • 00:24:36.140 --> 00:24:40.290
  • IT'S TIME FOR US TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:24:41.020 --> 00:24:46.150
  • I'M TIRED OF TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:24:46.180 --> 00:24:48.240
  • HOW WE ARE GOD'S HANDS AND FEET
  • 00:24:48.270 --> 00:24:51.140
  • BUT IT'S EASIER TO SAY THAN TO BE
  • 00:24:51.170 --> 00:24:53.150
  • WHO LIVE LIKE ANGELS OF APATHY
  • 00:24:53.180 --> 00:24:55.160
  • WE TELL OURSELVES IT'S ALRIGHT
  • 00:24:55.190 --> 00:24:59.080
  • "I'M SURE SOMEBODY ELSE WILL DO SOMETHING"
  • 00:24:59.110 --> 00:25:04.230
  • WELL, I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU
  • 00:25:04.260 --> 00:25:07.140
  • BUT I'M SICK AND TIRED OF LIFE WITH NO DESIRE
  • 00:25:07.170 --> 00:25:11.110
  • I DON'T WANT A FLAME, I WANT A FIRE
  • 00:25:11.140 --> 00:25:14.070
  • I WANNA BE THE ONE WHO'S GONNA STAND UP
  • 00:25:14.100 --> 00:25:17.020
  • AND SAY, "I'M GONNA DO SOMETHING"
  • 00:25:17.050 --> 00:25:23.090
  • IF NOT US, THEN WHO
  • 00:25:23.120 --> 00:25:27.110
  • IF NOT ME AND YOU
  • 00:25:27.140 --> 00:25:31.130
  • RIGHT NOW, IT'S TIME FOR US TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:25:31.160 --> 00:25:40.170
  • I SAID IF NOT NOW, THEN WHEN
  • 00:25:40.200 --> 00:25:45.130
  • WILL WE SEE AN END TO ALL THIS PAIN
  • 00:25:45.160 --> 00:25:53.060
  • IT'S NOT ENOUGH TO DO NOTHING
  • 00:25:53.090 --> 00:25:57.140
  • IT'S TIME FOR US TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:25:57.170 --> 00:26:04.070
  • WE ARE THE SALT OF THE EARTH
  • 00:26:04.100 --> 00:26:07.020
  • WE ARE A CITY ON A HILL
  • 00:26:07.050 --> 00:26:12.200
  • BUT WE'RE NEVER GONNA CHANGE THE WORLD BY STANDING STILL
  • 00:26:12.230 --> 00:26:21.290
  • IF NOT US, THEN WHO
  • 00:26:22.020 --> 00:26:26.140
  • IF NOT ME AND YOU
  • 00:26:26.170 --> 00:26:30.260
  • RIGHT NOW, IT'S NOT ENOUGH TO DO NOTHING
  • 00:26:30.290 --> 00:26:38.260
  • IT'S TIME FOR US TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:26:38.290 --> 00:26:43.060
  • I SAID ITS TIME FOR US TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:26:43.090 --> 00:26:47.250
  • WELL, ITS TIME FOR US TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:26:47.280 --> 00:26:52.240
  • ITS TIME FOR US DO SOMETHING
  • 00:26:52.270 --> 00:26:57.000
  • - YOU CAN'T BE ALL GOD CALLED YOU TO BE.
  • 00:27:02.030 --> 00:27:04.020
  • YOU CAN'T DO ALL GOD CALLED YOU TO DO
  • 00:27:04.050 --> 00:27:06.040
  • BECAUSE FEAR IS GOING TO LIMIT WHAT YOU CAN DO.
  • 00:27:06.070 --> 00:27:09.140
