  • - YOUR FAITH DOESN'T MANEUVER LIFE
  • 00:00:06.230 --> 00:00:09.170
  • AND MAKE EVERYTHING PERFECT.
  • 00:00:09.200 --> 00:00:11.170
  • IT IS NOT LIKE FAITH PREVENTS LIFE.
  • 00:00:11.200 --> 00:00:14.030
  • FAITH CARRIES US THROUGH LIFE.
  • 00:00:14.060 --> 00:00:16.070
  • NEXT! PAULA WHITE-CAIN SHARES HER JOURNEY OF FAITH
  • 00:00:16.100 --> 00:00:19.030
  • THROUGH ACCOUNTS OF HEARTBREAK AND TRIUMPH.
  • 00:00:19.060 --> 00:00:21.210
  • - PEOPLE ARE LIKE, WHY DO YOU TELL THIS STUFF?
  • 00:00:21.240 --> 00:00:23.210
  • DON'T TELL IT. DON'T SAY IT.
  • 00:00:23.240 --> 00:00:25.210
  • YOU CAN LOVE GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART
  • 00:00:25.240 --> 00:00:28.070
  • AND HAVE SOME VERY DARK, DEEP PLACES IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:00:28.100 --> 00:00:31.280
  • SOMETHING GREATER!
  • 00:00:32.010 --> 00:00:33.280
  • NEXT ON LIFE TODAY!
  • 00:00:34.010 --> 00:00:36.010
  • 00:00:43.180 --> 00:00:51.050

  • WELCOME TO LIFE TODAY !
  • 00:01:01.090 --> 00:01:02.140
  • I'M JAMES ROBISON.
  • 00:01:02.140 --> 00:01:03.230
  • BETTY AND I ARE THRILLED
  • 00:01:03.230 --> 00:01:04.290
  • TO HAVE YOU.
  • 00:01:04.290 --> 00:01:06.040
  • HERE I AM A BAPTIST EVANGELIST
  • 00:01:07.110 --> 00:01:10.110
  • AND ONE OF JERRY FALWELL'S
  • 00:01:10.110 --> 00:01:12.120
  • BEST FRIENDS,
  • 00:01:12.120 --> 00:01:13.150
  • ONE OF THESE
  • 00:01:13.150 --> 00:01:14.190
  • BIBLE BAPTIST GUYS.
  • 00:01:14.190 --> 00:01:16.110
  • AND I'M SITTING HERE
  • 00:01:16.110 --> 00:01:17.200
  • LOOKING AT A WOMAN
  • 00:01:17.200 --> 00:01:19.200
  • WHO IS A WOMAN PREACHER,
  • 00:01:20.010 --> 00:01:23.010
  • AND I'M A BAPTIST.
  • 00:01:23.010 --> 00:01:24.240
  • I'VE GOT THIS WOMAN PREACHER
  • 00:01:24.240 --> 00:01:27.170
  • THAT'S GOING TO COME AND TALK.
  • 00:01:27.200 --> 00:01:30.200
  • HER NAME IS PAULA WHITE.
  • 00:01:30.200 --> 00:01:33.180
  • SHE COMES IN, BETTY,
  • 00:01:33.180 --> 00:01:36.060
  • I CAN REMEMBER IT
  • 00:01:36.060 --> 00:01:37.170
  • AS THOUGH IT WERE LAST WEEK.
  • 00:01:37.170 --> 00:01:40.040
  • SHE TEACHES ON ESTHER; IT IS
  • 00:01:40.040 --> 00:01:41.160
  • ONE OF THE BEST BIBLE LESSONS
  • 00:01:41.160 --> 00:01:43.100
  • I'VE EVER HEARD IN MY LIFE --
  • 00:01:43.100 --> 00:01:45.090
  • INCREDIBLE COMMUNICATOR.
  • 00:01:45.090 --> 00:01:47.060
  • BUT MORE THAN THAT,
  • 00:01:47.060 --> 00:01:48.150
  • SHE WAS FULL
  • 00:01:48.150 --> 00:01:49.250
  • OF THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:01:49.250 --> 00:01:51.040
  • SHE TALKED ABOUT BEING MADE
  • 00:01:51.040 --> 00:01:54.040
  • FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS.
  • 00:01:54.040 --> 00:01:55.210
  • AND PEOPLE HAD BEEN
  • 00:01:55.210 --> 00:01:56.280
  • TELLING ME THAT,
  • 00:01:56.280 --> 00:01:58.050
  • BILLY GRAHAM HAD SAID THAT,
  • 00:01:58.050 --> 00:01:59.120
  • PEOPLE HAVE SAID
  • 00:01:59.120 --> 00:02:00.250
  • NICE THINGS ABOUT ME.
  • 00:02:00.250 --> 00:02:02.020
  • I'M SURE THEY'VE PROBABLY
  • 00:02:02.020 --> 00:02:03.120
  • SAID NICE THINGS
  • 00:02:03.120 --> 00:02:04.150
  • ABOUT OTHERS YOU KNOW
  • 00:02:04.150 --> 00:02:06.000
  • AND ABOUT HER PROBABLY,
  • 00:02:06.000 --> 00:02:07.110
  • BUT I REMEMBER WHEN SHE LEFT
  • 00:02:07.110 --> 00:02:08.180
  • I HEARD A VERY GIFTED PERSON
  • 00:02:08.180 --> 00:02:09.270
  • BUT I KNEW THERE WAS
  • 00:02:09.270 --> 00:02:11.050
  • REALLY TURMOIL AND SOMETHING
  • 00:02:11.050 --> 00:02:12.120
  • AND I IMMEDIATELY REACHED OUT
  • 00:02:13.180 --> 00:02:14.290
  • TO SHE AND TO HER HUSBAND.
  • 00:02:14.290 --> 00:02:16.100
  • SAID, "SURE WOULD LOVE
  • 00:02:16.100 --> 00:02:17.200
  • TO SPEND SOME TIME,
  • 00:02:17.200 --> 00:02:18.270
  • GOD'S ARMS AROUND YOU."
  • 00:02:20.090 --> 00:02:21.150
  • DIDN'T SAY IT IN THOSE WORDS
  • 00:02:21.150 --> 00:02:22.220
  • BUT BETTY AND I WANT
  • 00:02:22.220 --> 00:02:24.010
  • TO SPEND TIME WITH YOU.
  • 00:02:24.010 --> 00:02:25.130
  • DIDN'T GET TO.
  • 00:02:25.130 --> 00:02:26.200
  • AND HER LIFE
  • 00:02:26.200 --> 00:02:27.260
  • TOOK QUITE A JOURNEY.
  • 00:02:27.260 --> 00:02:29.010
  • I MEAN REALLY QUITE A JOURNEY.
  • 00:02:29.010 --> 00:02:30.070
  • AND SEE,
  • 00:02:30.070 --> 00:02:31.130
  • WHEN YOU REALLY LOVE PEOPLE
  • 00:02:31.130 --> 00:02:32.170
  • AND SEE, BETTY AND I DO,
  • 00:02:32.170 --> 00:02:33.220
  • WE REALLY LOVE PEOPLE.
  • 00:02:33.220 --> 00:02:34.250
  • WE DON'T JUST HAVE GUESTS.
  • 00:02:34.250 --> 00:02:35.290
  • WE LOVE EVERYBODY
  • 00:02:35.290 --> 00:02:37.040
  • IN THIS STUDIO HERE.
  • 00:02:37.040 --> 00:02:38.070
  • AND ALL OF YOU.
  • 00:02:38.070 --> 00:02:39.100
  • YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:02:39.100 --> 00:02:40.140
  • IF WE WERE SITTING IN HOME,
  • 00:02:40.140 --> 00:02:41.170
  • YOU'D KNOW WE LOVED YOU,
  • 00:02:41.170 --> 00:02:42.180
  • WANT TO GET GOD'S ARMS
  • 00:02:42.180 --> 00:02:43.210
  • AROUND YOU.
  • 00:02:43.210 --> 00:02:44.220
  • REALLY LOVE YOU.
  • 00:02:44.220 --> 00:02:45.240
  • I MEAN THAT.
  • 00:02:45.240 --> 00:02:46.250
  • YOU MAY SAY, WELL, IT'S UGLY.
  • 00:02:46.250 --> 00:02:47.260
  • IT'S ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:02:47.260 --> 00:02:48.280
  • HE'S WONDERFUL.
  • 00:02:48.280 --> 00:02:49.290
  • BUT I JUST PRAYED FOR HER.
  • 00:02:49.290 --> 00:02:51.020
  • AND HERE SHE IS
  • 00:02:51.020 --> 00:02:52.060
  • WITH A NEW BOOK CALLED,
  • 00:02:52.060 --> 00:02:54.170
  • SOMETHING GREATER .
  • 00:02:54.170 --> 00:02:55.220
  • SHE SAID IT TOOK
  • 00:02:55.220 --> 00:02:56.250
  • NINE YEARS TO WRITE IT
  • 00:02:56.250 --> 00:02:57.290
  • BECAUSE IT REALLY
  • 00:02:57.290 --> 00:02:59.000
  • IN MANY WAYS TOOK HER
  • 00:02:59.000 --> 00:03:00.030
  • A LIFETIME TO WRITE IT.
  • 00:03:00.030 --> 00:03:01.080
  • BUT IT'S
  • 00:03:01.080 --> 00:03:02.150
  • AN INCREDIBLE PORTRAIT
  • 00:03:02.150 --> 00:03:03.210
  • OF THE GRACE AND GLORY OF GOD.
  • 00:03:03.210 --> 00:03:06.190
  • AND PAULA IS BACK.
  • 00:03:06.190 --> 00:03:08.030
  • YOU TALK ABOUT BEING CREATED
  • 00:03:08.030 --> 00:03:09.120
  • FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS,
  • 00:03:09.120 --> 00:03:11.270
  • PAULA, YOU HAVE NO IDEA
  • 00:03:11.270 --> 00:03:13.040

  • I KNOW THERE ARE PEOPLE
  • 00:03:21.080 --> 00:03:22.120
  • THAT SAY BAD THINGS
  • 00:03:22.120 --> 00:03:23.170
  • ABOUT ALL OF US, I'M SURE.
  • 00:03:23.170 --> 00:03:24.210
  • THEY DON'T EVEN
  • 00:03:24.210 --> 00:03:25.240
  • UNDERSTAND WHY
  • 00:03:25.240 --> 00:03:26.270
  • YOU AND I WOULD CARE ENOUGH
  • 00:03:26.270 --> 00:03:27.280
  • ABOUT THE WHOLE NATION
  • 00:03:27.280 --> 00:03:29.010
  • AND EVERYBODY'S FAMILY
  • 00:03:29.010 --> 00:03:30.030
  • AND THEIR GRANDKIDS
  • 00:03:30.030 --> 00:03:31.040
  • AND GREAT GRANDCHILDREN.
  • 00:03:31.040 --> 00:03:32.040
  • WE JUST WANT THE BEST.
  • 00:03:32.040 --> 00:03:33.040
  • WE WANT GOD'S BEST
  • 00:03:33.040 --> 00:03:34.050
  • FOR ALL OF YOU --

  • THE WHOLE WORLD.
  • 00:03:35.080 --> 00:03:36.110
  • THAT'S WHAT WE WANT.
  • 00:03:36.110 --> 00:03:37.170
  • AND PAULA AND I TOGETHER

  • HAVE DECIDED,
  • 00:03:38.220 --> 00:03:39.280

  • AND LOVE THEIR NEIGHBOR,
  • 00:03:42.080 --> 00:03:43.110
  • WE TRIED TO SAY LET'S TALK

  • AND OUR NATION'S LEADERS
  • 00:03:45.220 --> 00:03:46.230
  • AND LET'S OFFER THEM

  • IF THEY'LL TAKE IT.
  • 00:03:48.250 --> 00:03:49.260
  • AND FOR SOME REASON
  • 00:03:49.260 --> 00:03:50.270
  • GOD OPENED THE DOOR FOR YOU.
  • 00:03:50.270 --> 00:03:52.010

  • A MIRACLE OF A HUSBAND
  • 00:03:59.100 --> 00:04:01.010
  • IN JONATHAN CAIN
  • 00:04:01.010 --> 00:04:02.060
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO MEET HIM
  • 00:04:02.060 --> 00:04:03.120
  • IN THE NEXT SHOW
  • 00:04:03.120 --> 00:04:04.170
  • WITH US TOGETHER,
  • 00:04:04.170 --> 00:04:05.210
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO
  • 00:04:05.210 --> 00:04:06.220
  • LET EVERYBODY GET TO KNOW HIM
  • 00:04:06.220 --> 00:04:08.000
  • IN A DIFFERENT WAY,
  • 00:04:08.000 --> 00:04:09.010
  • BUT WOULDN'T YOU SAY
  • 00:04:09.010 --> 00:04:10.020
  • THAT WE ARE WATCHING GOD
  • 00:04:10.020 --> 00:04:11.030
  • MORE CLEARLY
  • 00:04:11.030 --> 00:04:12.040
  • THAN WE EVER EVEN IMAGINED
  • 00:04:12.040 --> 00:04:13.050
  • AND THE WHOLE NATION
  • 00:04:13.050 --> 00:04:14.060
  • CAN SEE HIM THAT WAY
  • 00:04:14.060 --> 00:04:15.070
  • AN OPPORTUNITY?
  • 00:04:16.090 --> 00:04:17.090
  • Paula: BEYOND ANYTHING,
  • 00:04:17.090 --> 00:04:18.100
  • JAMES.
  • 00:04:18.100 --> 00:04:19.110
  • I'VE GOT TO SAY SO MUCH
  • 00:04:19.110 --> 00:04:20.140
  • ABOUT YOU AND BETTY.
  • 00:04:20.140 --> 00:04:21.150
  • YOU'RE SUCH A GENERAL
  • 00:04:21.150 --> 00:04:22.170
  • AND SO ARE YOU MISS BETTY,
  • 00:04:23.190 --> 00:04:24.230
  • SUCH A MATRIARCH.
  • 00:04:24.230 --> 00:04:26.000
  • AND I GO BACK
  • 00:04:26.000 --> 00:04:27.030
  • TO WHEN I WAS ON HERE,
  • 00:04:27.030 --> 00:04:28.090
  • AND YOU AND BETTY WERE
  • 00:04:28.090 --> 00:04:29.100
  • ONE OF THE FEW PEOPLE.
  • 00:04:29.100 --> 00:04:30.140
  • YOU KNOW EVERYONE KIND OF,
  • 00:04:30.140 --> 00:04:31.180
  • I'D BECOME A COMMODITY.
  • 00:04:31.270 --> 00:04:34.270
  • AND SO EVERYONE JUST
  • 00:04:34.270 --> 00:04:36.270
  • KEEP THE IMAGE,
  • 00:04:36.270 --> 00:04:37.280
  • KEEP THINGS RIGHT, KEEP THIS.
  • 00:04:37.280 --> 00:04:39.120
  • BUT YOU DIDN'T CARE
  • 00:04:39.120 --> 00:04:40.260
  • ABOUT THE IMAGE,
  • 00:04:40.260 --> 00:04:42.000
  • YOU CARED ABOUT ME.
  • 00:04:42.000 --> 00:04:43.060
  • YOU CARED ABOUT...
  • 00:04:43.060 --> 00:04:44.160
  • YOU SAW THE HURT AND THE PAIN.
  • 00:04:44.160 --> 00:04:46.050
  • I THOUGHT
  • 00:04:46.050 --> 00:04:47.100
  • I WAS HIDING IT WELL.
  • 00:04:47.100 --> 00:04:48.130
  • BUT YOU SAW
  • 00:04:48.130 --> 00:04:49.160
  • BY THE EYES OF THE SPIRIT
  • 00:04:49.160 --> 00:04:50.260
  • WHAT SOME PEOPLE WOULD CALL
  • 00:04:50.260 --> 00:04:52.200
  • THE MOST SUCCESSFUL,
  • 00:04:52.200 --> 00:04:54.180
  • WHICH I DON'T BELIEVE THAT,
  • 00:04:54.180 --> 00:04:55.280
  • I THINK THAT TIME OF MY LIFE
  • 00:04:57.000 --> 00:05:00.020
  • WAS THE MOST DIFFICULT.
  • 00:05:00.020 --> 00:05:02.050
  • I ONE TIME COUNTED UP
  • 00:05:02.050 --> 00:05:04.110
  • AND THERE WERE 39
  • 00:05:04.110 --> 00:05:05.200
  • DIFFERENT LIFE EVENTS,
  • 00:05:05.200 --> 00:05:07.170
  • 19 DIFFERENT CRISES
  • 00:05:07.170 --> 00:05:09.250
  • WHERE EVERYTHING
  • 00:05:09.250 --> 00:05:11.040
  • THAT COULD BE SHAKEN
  • 00:05:11.040 --> 00:05:12.110
  • WOULD BE SHAKEN IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:05:12.130 --> 00:05:15.130
  • I WRITE ABOUT IT.
  • 00:05:15.130 --> 00:05:16.180
  • THIS WAS THE HARDEST BOOK
  • 00:05:16.180 --> 00:05:18.030
  • I'VE EVER DONE.
  • 00:05:18.030 --> 00:05:19.120
  • I CAN WRITE A TOPIC BOOK
  • 00:05:19.120 --> 00:05:20.190
  • ALL DAY LONG
  • 00:05:20.190 --> 00:05:21.250
  • AND THIS WAS THE MOST
  • 00:05:21.250 --> 00:05:23.050
  • DIFFICULT THING I'D DONE
  • 00:05:23.050 --> 00:05:24.130
  • BECAUSE IT WAS MY LIFE'S STORY
  • 00:05:24.230 --> 00:05:27.230
  • AND FIRST THING IS LIKE, WHY?
  • 00:05:27.230 --> 00:05:30.090
  • GOD JUST KEPT PUTTING
  • 00:05:30.090 --> 00:05:31.210
  • A DEMAND ON ME.
  • 00:05:31.210 --> 00:05:32.270
  • IT WAS THE MOST DIFFICULT
  • 00:05:32.270 --> 00:05:34.030
  • BUT THE MOST REWARDING
  • 00:05:34.030 --> 00:05:35.100
  • BECAUSE I HAD TO DISROBE
  • 00:05:35.100 --> 00:05:37.130
  • IN FRONT OF EVERYONE
  • 00:05:37.130 --> 00:05:39.050
  • AND BE VERY, VERY VULNERABLE.
  • 00:05:39.260 --> 00:05:42.260
  • SO MUCH SO THAT WRITING IT,
  • 00:05:42.260 --> 00:05:45.120
  • IT WAS NINE YEARS
  • 00:05:45.120 --> 00:05:46.200
  • IN THE MAKING
  • 00:05:46.200 --> 00:05:47.260
  • BUT IT LITERALLY TOOK ME
  • 00:05:47.260 --> 00:05:49.060
  • OVER TWO YEARS BECAUSE
  • 00:05:49.060 --> 00:05:50.150
  • I HAD TO JUST STOP AND CRY.
  • 00:05:50.150 --> 00:05:51.240
  • AND THEN I WOULD STOP --
  • 00:05:51.240 --> 00:05:53.020
  • BUT IT WASN'T TEARS OF SADNESS
  • 00:05:53.020 --> 00:05:54.090
  • AS MUCH AS TEARS OF JOY
  • 00:05:54.090 --> 00:05:56.230
  • THAT GOD IS SUCH A GREAT GOD
  • 00:05:57.040 --> 00:06:00.060
  • THAT I DON'T CARE
  • 00:06:00.060 --> 00:06:01.260
  • HOW DARK YOUR SEASON IS,
  • 00:06:01.260 --> 00:06:03.290
  • HOW DEMONIC, HOW DIFFICULT,
  • 00:06:03.290 --> 00:06:06.230
  • THAT IF YOU DON'T
  • 00:06:06.230 --> 00:06:08.170
  • LET GO OF GOD,
  • 00:06:08.170 --> 00:06:10.220
  • AND THAT WAS MY KEY
  • 00:06:10.220 --> 00:06:11.290
  • THAT I SAY,
  • 00:06:11.290 --> 00:06:13.020
  • I ALMOST SUBTITLED IT
  • 00:06:13.020 --> 00:06:14.060
  • INSTEAD OF
  • 00:06:14.060 --> 00:06:15.070
  • "TRIUMPHING OVER YOUR TRIALS,"
  • 00:06:15.070 --> 00:06:16.220
  • "STAYING FAITHFUL
  • 00:06:16.220 --> 00:06:17.280
  • TO YOUR YES."
  • 00:06:17.280 --> 00:06:19.120
  • BECAUSE GOD HAS A YES
  • 00:06:19.120 --> 00:06:20.190
  • FOR EVERY ONE OF US.
  • 00:06:20.190 --> 00:06:21.260
  • IT IS HIS DIVINE SENSE
  • 00:06:21.260 --> 00:06:23.070
  • OF PURPOSE THAT HE'S PUT
  • 00:06:23.070 --> 00:06:24.160
  • ON THE INSIDE OF US.
  • 00:06:24.160 --> 00:06:25.240
  • IT IS ETERNITY IN OUR HEART.
  • 00:06:25.240 --> 00:06:27.010
  • AND GOD HAS,
  • 00:06:27.010 --> 00:06:29.020
  • HE HAS A PURPOSE,
  • 00:06:29.020 --> 00:06:30.070
  • A SUPREME REASON FOR BEING
  • 00:06:30.070 --> 00:06:31.110
  • FOR EVERY ONE OF US.
  • 00:06:31.110 --> 00:06:32.240
  • AND IT WASN'T WHAT I DID.
  • 00:06:32.240 --> 00:06:34.150
  • IT WASN'T BECAUSE
  • 00:06:34.150 --> 00:06:35.190
  • I COULD PREACH A SERMON.
  • 00:06:35.190 --> 00:06:36.240
  • IT WASN'T JUST BECAUSE
  • 00:06:36.240 --> 00:06:37.290
  • I PASTORED A CHURCH.
  • 00:06:38.010 --> 00:06:41.010
  • IT WAS I'M A CHILD OF GOD.
  • 00:06:41.010 --> 00:06:42.250
  • HE LOVED PAULA.
  • 00:06:42.250 --> 00:06:44.080
  • THAT'S ONE OF THE HARDEST
  • 00:06:44.080 --> 00:06:45.190
  • THINGS FOR ME TO COME TO
  • 00:06:45.190 --> 00:06:46.290
  • THAT I DIDN'T HAVE TO DO
  • 00:06:46.290 --> 00:06:48.230
  • FOR GOD TO LOVE ME LIKE THAT.
  • 00:06:49.200 --> 00:06:52.200
  • I WRITE THROUGH
  • 00:06:52.200 --> 00:06:54.080
  • THOSE DIFFICULT
  • 00:06:54.080 --> 00:06:55.170
  • PAINFUL MOMENTS.
  • 00:06:55.170 --> 00:06:57.010
  • MOST PEOPLE FOCUSED
  • 00:06:57.010 --> 00:06:58.080
  • ON THE MARRIAGE
  • 00:06:58.080 --> 00:06:59.150
  • THAT FELL APART.
  • 00:06:59.150 --> 00:07:01.110
  • I BELIEVE SO MUCH
  • 00:07:01.110 --> 00:07:02.240
  • IN THE SACREDNESS
  • 00:07:02.240 --> 00:07:04.050
  • AND THE DIVINE INSTITUTION
  • 00:07:04.050 --> 00:07:05.200
  • OF MARRIAGE,
  • 00:07:05.200 --> 00:07:07.030
  • AND IT WAS HARD FOR ME
  • 00:07:07.030 --> 00:07:08.210
  • TO COME TO MYSELF
  • 00:07:08.210 --> 00:07:10.060
  • TO RECOGNIZE THAT I WAS IN
  • 00:07:10.060 --> 00:07:11.170
  • A VERY ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:07:11.170 --> 00:07:14.050
  • IT WAS BIBLICALLY,
  • 00:07:14.050 --> 00:07:16.230
  • I'D BEEN RELEASED FROM.
  • 00:07:16.230 --> 00:07:18.250
  • MY EX-HUSBAND
  • 00:07:18.250 --> 00:07:20.060
  • HAD A COMPLETE BREAKDOWN.
  • 00:07:20.150 --> 00:07:23.150
  • AND TESTIMONY,
  • 00:07:24.280 --> 00:07:26.060
  • GOT ADDICTED TO DRUGS.
  • 00:07:26.060 --> 00:07:28.230
  • I KEPT BELIEVING GOD,
  • 00:07:31.230 --> 00:07:33.160
  • WE'RE GOING TO MAKE IT.
  • 00:07:33.160 --> 00:07:35.070
  • I CAN PRAY IT AWAY.
  • 00:07:35.070 --> 00:07:36.220
  • I CAN STAND IN FAITH.
  • 00:07:36.220 --> 00:07:38.020
  • IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN!
  • 00:07:38.020 --> 00:07:39.100
  • FOUND OUT
  • 00:07:39.100 --> 00:07:40.210
  • MY SON HAD BEEN ABUSED
  • 00:07:40.210 --> 00:07:42.010
  • BY SOMEONE IN THE CHURCH.
  • 00:07:42.010 --> 00:07:43.180
  • HE'S SITTING OUTSIDE ONE DAY
  • 00:07:43.180 --> 00:07:45.020
  • AND I WALK OUT
  • 00:07:45.020 --> 00:07:47.100
  • ON THE BACK PORCH,
  • 00:07:47.100 --> 00:07:48.220
  • RANDY AND I.
  • 00:07:48.220 --> 00:07:50.010
  • HIS HANDS ARE BLACK.
  • 00:07:50.010 --> 00:07:51.070
  • AND HE GOES,
  • 00:07:51.070 --> 00:07:52.120
  • "AS IF YOU HADN'T NOTICED,"
  • 00:07:52.120 --> 00:07:53.200
  • HE IS ABOUT 17
  • 00:07:53.200 --> 00:07:54.290
  • AT THIS TIME, HE GOES,
  • 00:07:54.290 --> 00:07:56.120
  • "I'M ADDICTED TO CRACK."
  • 00:07:56.120 --> 00:07:57.200
  • SKINNY LITTLE KID
  • 00:07:57.200 --> 00:07:58.250
  • AND ATHEIST.
  • 00:07:58.250 --> 00:08:00.250
  • I HELPED RAISE
  • 00:08:00.250 --> 00:08:02.110
  • RANDY'S THREE CHILDREN
  • 00:08:02.110 --> 00:08:03.200
  • FROM THE TIME THEY WERE TWO,
  • 00:08:03.200 --> 00:08:05.010
  • FIVE, AND SEVEN.
  • 00:08:05.010 --> 00:08:06.140
  • OUR OLDEST DAUGHTER
  • 00:08:06.140 --> 00:08:07.190
  • GOT CANCER.
  • 00:08:07.190 --> 00:08:09.010
  • I'M BELIEVING GOD
  • 00:08:09.010 --> 00:08:10.090
  • AND SEEING GOD DO MIRACLES
  • 00:08:10.090 --> 00:08:11.180
  • IN OTHER PEOPLE'S LIVES
  • 00:08:11.180 --> 00:08:12.250
  • AND SHE IS DYING OF CANCER.
  • 00:08:12.250 --> 00:08:14.110
  • RANDY WOULD HAVE
  • 00:08:14.110 --> 00:08:15.200
  • A COMPLETE BREAKDOWN.
  • 00:08:15.200 --> 00:08:16.270
  • WE'D GO UNDER INVESTIGATION.
  • 00:08:17.180 --> 00:08:20.180
  • I'D BE IN THE HEADLINES
  • 00:08:20.180 --> 00:08:22.020
  • 52 WEEKS IN A ROW.
  • 00:08:22.020 --> 00:08:23.130
  • PEOPLE ARE LIKE,
  • 00:08:23.130 --> 00:08:24.240
  • "WHY DO YOU TELL THIS STUFF?
  • 00:08:24.240 --> 00:08:26.000
  • DON'T TELL IT!
  • 00:08:26.000 --> 00:08:27.120
  • DON'T SAY IT!"
  • 00:08:27.120 --> 00:08:28.260
  • BUT YOU KNOW,
  • 00:08:28.260 --> 00:08:30.050
  • YOU CAN LOVE GOD
  • 00:08:30.050 --> 00:08:31.120
  • WITH ALL YOUR HEART
  • 00:08:31.120 --> 00:08:32.220
  • AND HAVE SOME VERY DARK,
  • 00:08:32.220 --> 00:08:34.100
  • DEEP PLACES IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:08:34.100 --> 00:08:36.040
  • I LAID IN DEPRESSION
  • 00:08:36.040 --> 00:08:37.280
  • FOR THREE MONTHS.
  • 00:08:37.280 --> 00:08:39.060
  • COULDN'T GET UP
  • 00:08:39.060 --> 00:08:40.100
  • OFF THE GROUND;
  • 00:08:40.100 --> 00:08:41.160
  • LOST 30 POUNDS,
  • 00:08:41.160 --> 00:08:42.230
  • WEIGHED 97 POUNDS.
  • 00:08:42.230 --> 00:08:45.040
  • WANTED TO GET UP,
  • 00:08:45.040 --> 00:08:46.090
  • COULDN'T GET UP.
  • 00:08:46.090 --> 00:08:47.160
  • WANTED TO FEEL HOPE,
  • 00:08:47.160 --> 00:08:48.270
  • DIDN'T SEE ANY HOPE.
  • 00:08:48.270 --> 00:08:51.080
  • BUT THAT WASN'T
  • 00:08:51.080 --> 00:08:52.160
  • THE END OF THE STORY.
  • 00:08:52.160 --> 00:08:54.030
  • AND SOMEONE NEEDS TO KNOW
  • 00:08:54.030 --> 00:08:55.170
  • BECAUSE LIFE IS NOT
  • 00:08:55.170 --> 00:08:56.280
  • THIS NICE LITTLE LINEAR,
  • 00:08:56.280 --> 00:08:58.110
  • LIKE WE CAN TAKE OUR FAITH
  • 00:08:58.110 --> 00:08:59.200
  • AND JUST USE IT.
  • 00:08:59.200 --> 00:09:00.270
  • FAITH DOESN'T MANEUVER LIFE
  • 00:09:00.270 --> 00:09:03.230
  • AND MAKE EVERYTHING PERFECT.
  • 00:09:03.230 --> 00:09:05.120
  • IT IS NOT LIKE FAITH
  • 00:09:05.120 --> 00:09:06.250
  • PREVENTS LIFE.
  • 00:09:06.250 --> 00:09:08.090
  • FAITH CARRIES US
  • 00:09:08.090 --> 00:09:09.200
  • THROUGH LIFE.
  • 00:09:09.200 --> 00:09:10.280
  • I WISH I COULD SAY
  • 00:09:10.280 --> 00:09:12.050
  • THE BROKENNESS MOST PEOPLE
  • 00:09:12.050 --> 00:09:13.130
  • THAT KNEW MY STORY
  • 00:09:13.130 --> 00:09:14.200
  • KNEW THAT I DIDN'T GROW UP
  • 00:09:14.200 --> 00:09:15.280
  • IN CHURCH.
  • 00:09:15.280 --> 00:09:17.060
  • MY FATHER COMMITTED SUICIDE
  • 00:09:17.060 --> 00:09:18.140
  • WHEN I WAS FIVE YEARS OLD;
  • 00:09:18.140 --> 00:09:19.210
  • SEXUALLY AND
  • 00:09:19.210 --> 00:09:20.280
  • PHYSICALLY ABUSED
  • 00:09:20.280 --> 00:09:22.040
  • FROM A WELL TO DO FAMILY.
  • 00:09:22.040 --> 00:09:23.110
  • MY MOTHER HAD TWO MASTERS
  • 00:09:23.110 --> 00:09:24.200
  • AND DOCTORATE.
  • 00:09:24.200 --> 00:09:25.240
  • GOT SAVED
  • 00:09:25.240 --> 00:09:26.290
  • WHEN I'M 18 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:09:26.290 --> 00:09:28.030
  • FELL MADLY IN LOVE GOD,
  • 00:09:28.030 --> 00:09:29.070
  • STAYED IN HIS WORD.
  • 00:09:29.070 --> 00:09:30.110
  • I WISH I COULD SAY
  • 00:09:30.110 --> 00:09:31.160
  • MY PROBLEMS WERE JUST FROM
  • 00:09:31.160 --> 00:09:32.240
  • MY CHILDHOOD BUT THEY WEREN'T.
  • 00:09:32.240 --> 00:09:33.290
  • THEY WERE IN THE --
  • 00:09:33.290 --> 00:09:35.040
  • THERE'S A LOT OF MESS
  • 00:09:35.040 --> 00:09:36.100
  • IN THE MIDDLE.
  • 00:09:36.100 --> 00:09:37.240
  • AND PEOPLE DON'T LIKE TO TALK
  • 00:09:37.240 --> 00:09:39.100
  • ABOUT THOSE MESSY THINGS
  • 00:09:39.100 --> 00:09:40.250
  • BUT I FOUND OUT
  • 00:09:40.250 --> 00:09:42.040
  • THIS REALLY ISN'T MY STORY,
  • 00:09:42.040 --> 00:09:43.240
  • THIS IS ALL OF OUR STORIES.
  • 00:09:43.240 --> 00:09:46.070
  • I WAS EMBARRASSED.
  • 00:09:46.070 --> 00:09:47.260
  • WHEN YOU'RE IN
  • 00:09:47.260 --> 00:09:50.080
  • AN ABUSIVE SITUATION,
  • 00:09:50.080 --> 00:09:51.180
  • YOU BEGIN TO BELIEVE
  • 00:09:51.180 --> 00:09:52.270
  • THE LIES ABOUT YOURSELF.
  • 00:09:52.270 --> 00:09:54.060
  • I DIDN'T KNOW.
  • 00:09:54.060 --> 00:09:55.130
  • I DIDN'T KNOW WHERE TO TURN.
  • 00:09:55.130 --> 00:09:56.210
  • I DIDN'T KNOW WHO TO TRUST.
  • 00:09:56.210 --> 00:09:57.250
  • ULTIMATELY,
  • 00:09:57.250 --> 00:09:59.030
  • I WAS GIVEN AN ULTIMATUM.
  • 00:09:59.030 --> 00:10:00.270
  • IT WAS OUR ANNIVERSARY
  • 00:10:00.270 --> 00:10:02.010
  • AND HE SAID,
  • 00:10:02.010 --> 00:10:04.250
  • "I'VE GOT GOOD NEWS
  • 00:10:04.250 --> 00:10:06.030
  • AND BAD NEWS.
  • 00:10:06.030 --> 00:10:07.270
  • THE GOOD NEWS IS I LOVE YOU.
  • 00:10:07.270 --> 00:10:10.010
  • THE BAD NEWS IS
  • 00:10:10.010 --> 00:10:11.090
  • I'M NOT GOING TO STOP DOING
  • 00:10:11.090 --> 00:10:12.220
  • WHAT I'M DOING;
  • 00:10:12.220 --> 00:10:14.050
  • AND HERE'S THE ULTIMATUM."
  • 00:10:14.050 --> 00:10:15.160
  • AND I WRITE ABOUT IT
  • 00:10:15.160 --> 00:10:16.220
  • IN THE BOOK.
  • 00:10:16.220 --> 00:10:18.160
  • I SAID, "I CAN'T DO THAT."
  • 00:10:18.160 --> 00:10:21.130
  • "WELL,
  • 00:10:21.130 --> 00:10:22.210
  • YOU'LL LOSE EVERYTHING."
  • 00:10:22.210 --> 00:10:23.260
  • I SAID, "WELL,
  • 00:10:23.260 --> 00:10:25.180
  • I MAY LOSE EVERYTHING
  • 00:10:25.180 --> 00:10:27.210
  • BUT I'M NOT GOING TO LOSE ME."
  • 00:10:27.210 --> 00:10:30.140
  • AND IT'S SO HARD.
  • 00:10:30.140 --> 00:10:32.070
  • THE GREATEST BLESSING
  • 00:10:33.180 --> 00:10:34.220
  • IN MY LIFE
  • 00:10:34.220 --> 00:10:35.270
  • AND I SAY THIS NOW,
  • 00:10:35.270 --> 00:10:37.100
  • IS THAT GOD LOVED ME ENOUGH
  • 00:10:37.100 --> 00:10:39.050
  • BECAUSE IT WAS IN
  • 00:10:42.010 --> 00:10:43.140
  • COMPLETE BROKENNESS THAT
  • 00:10:43.140 --> 00:10:45.110
  • I FOUND THE GREATEST BEAUTY.
  • 00:10:45.110 --> 00:10:47.030
  • I FOUND SOMETHING GREATER
  • 00:10:47.030 --> 00:10:49.200
  • THAT EVERY MOMENT OF MY LIFE
  • 00:10:49.200 --> 00:10:51.070
  • I CAN LOOK BACK
  • 00:10:51.070 --> 00:10:52.160
  • AND I CAN TRACE IT,
  • 00:10:52.160 --> 00:10:53.250
  • WHETHER I WAS
  • 00:10:53.250 --> 00:10:55.070
  • THAT FIVE-YEAR OLD GIRL
  • 00:10:55.070 --> 00:10:56.170
  • AFTER MY FATHER
  • 00:10:56.170 --> 00:10:57.270
  • HAD COMMITTED SUICIDE
  • 00:10:57.270 --> 00:10:59.080
  • STANDING OUT
  • 00:10:59.080 --> 00:11:00.140
  • HOLDING THE JEWELRY BOX
  • 00:11:00.140 --> 00:11:01.220
  • HE'D GIVEN ME
  • 00:11:01.220 --> 00:11:02.250
  • WITH THE BALLERINA
  • 00:11:02.250 --> 00:11:04.010
  • TWIRLING AROUND
  • 00:11:04.010 --> 00:11:05.070
  • LOOKING UP AT THE SKY.
  • 00:11:05.070 --> 00:11:06.100
  • I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW
  • 00:11:06.100 --> 00:11:07.160
  • IT WAS THE HEAVENS.
  • 00:11:07.160 --> 00:11:08.190
  • I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW
  • 00:11:08.190 --> 00:11:09.220
  • WHO I WAS TALKING TO
  • 00:11:09.220 --> 00:11:10.250
  • BUT THERE WAS ETERNITY
  • 00:11:10.250 --> 00:11:11.290
  • IN MY HEART
  • 00:11:11.290 --> 00:11:13.040
  • SAYING THERE IS MORE.
  • 00:11:13.040 --> 00:11:14.070
  • DON'T YOU GIVE UP.
  • 00:11:14.070 --> 00:11:15.100
  • OR WHETHER IT WAS WHEN I GOT
  • 00:11:15.100 --> 00:11:16.150
  • PREGNANT OUT OF WEDLOCK AT 18
  • 00:11:16.150 --> 00:11:17.150
  • AND MY MOTHER
  • 00:11:17.150 --> 00:11:18.170
  • AND MY STEPFATHER SAID,
  • 00:11:18.170 --> 00:11:19.210
  • "IF YOU EVER TALK ABOUT JESUS
  • 00:11:19.210 --> 00:11:20.230
  • YOU'RE NOT WELCOME
  • 00:11:20.230 --> 00:11:21.250
  • IN OUR HOME."
  • 00:11:21.250 --> 00:11:23.000
  • THE REJECTION
  • 00:11:23.000 --> 00:11:24.030
  • THAT CAME WITH THAT.
  • 00:11:24.030 --> 00:11:25.060
  • HERE I AM 19 YEARS OLD,
  • 00:11:25.060 --> 00:11:26.130
  • AND DON'T HAVE INSURANCE,
  • 00:11:26.130 --> 00:11:27.150
  • DON'T HAVE ANYTHING,
  • 00:11:27.150 --> 00:11:28.190
  • LIVING IN A TRAILER
  • 00:11:28.190 --> 00:11:29.230
  • ON BILL MOXLEY ROAD
  • 00:11:29.230 --> 00:11:30.280
  • BECAUSE I'D BEEN CUT OFF.
  • 00:11:30.280 --> 00:11:32.030
  • I'D MADE SOME
  • 00:11:32.030 --> 00:11:33.070
  • NOT SO GOOD DECISIONS.
  • 00:11:33.070 --> 00:11:34.230
  • I'M HAVING THIS BABY
  • 00:11:34.230 --> 00:11:36.110
  • BY MYSELF.
  • 00:11:36.110 --> 00:11:37.200
  • NOBODY IS THERE
  • 00:11:37.200 --> 00:11:38.290
  • BUT THIS MEAN NURSE
  • 00:11:38.290 --> 00:11:40.100
  • THAT JUST WAS YELLING AT ME
  • 00:11:40.100 --> 00:11:41.240
  • AND SCREAMING AT ME.
  • 00:11:41.240 --> 00:11:43.060
  • I'M LIKE
  • 00:11:43.060 --> 00:11:44.140
  • I'VE NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE!
  • 00:11:44.140 --> 00:11:45.260
  • I DIDN'T KNOW.
  • 00:11:45.260 --> 00:11:47.100
  • I'M TRYING TO CREATE A FAMILY
  • 00:11:47.100 --> 00:11:48.250
  • BECAUSE ALL I WANTED
  • 00:11:48.250 --> 00:11:50.060
  • WAS A FAMILY, NOT KNOWING
  • 00:11:50.060 --> 00:11:51.160
  • THAT GOD HAD A FAMILY FOR ME,
  • 00:11:51.160 --> 00:11:54.060
  • JAMES.
  • 00:11:54.060 --> 00:11:56.010
  • James: BOY, I WANT EVERYBODY
  • 00:11:56.010 --> 00:11:57.060
  • TO KNOW THAT TOO.
  • 00:11:57.060 --> 00:11:58.100
  • Paula: BUT GOD HAD A FAMILY
  • 00:11:58.100 --> 00:11:59.170
  • AND I'M TRYING TO MAKE ONE,
  • 00:11:59.170 --> 00:12:01.060
  • CREATE SOMETHING.
  • 00:12:01.060 --> 00:12:02.140
  • I HAVE NO IDEA BECAUSE
  • 00:12:02.140 --> 00:12:03.270
  • THERE IS NO BACKDROP
  • 00:12:03.270 --> 00:12:05.030
  • IN MY LIFE
  • 00:12:05.030 --> 00:12:06.110
  • OF WHAT A FATHER LOOKS LIKE,
  • 00:12:06.110 --> 00:12:07.130
  • WHAT A MOTHER --
  • 00:12:07.130 --> 00:12:08.180
  • MY MOTHER BECAME AN ALCOHOLIC
  • 00:12:08.180 --> 00:12:09.250
  • AFTER MY FATHER'S DEATH
  • 00:12:09.250 --> 00:12:11.050
  • BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T KNOW
  • 00:12:11.050 --> 00:12:12.120
  • HOW TO DEAL WITH HER PAIN.
  • 00:12:12.120 --> 00:12:13.280
  • I GO THROUGH SO MANY
  • 00:12:13.280 --> 00:12:16.090
  • OF THE DIFFERENT DILEMMAS.
  • 00:12:16.090 --> 00:12:17.250
  • SO HERE, ALL THIS STUFF IS.
  • 00:12:17.250 --> 00:12:20.060
  • PEOPLE WANTED THE IMAGE.
  • 00:12:20.060 --> 00:12:23.000
  • THEY REALLY DID, MORE SO.
  • 00:12:23.000 --> 00:12:24.160
  • AND I WAS GOOD
  • 00:12:24.160 --> 00:12:26.030
  • WITH SHOWING THE IMAGE
  • 00:12:26.030 --> 00:12:27.170
  • BUT THE REALITY,
  • 00:12:27.170 --> 00:12:29.000
  • AND IN THIS BOOK,
  • 00:12:29.000 --> 00:12:30.100
  • THERE IS NO IMAGE.
  • 00:12:30.100 --> 00:12:31.170
  • I DISROBE AND SOMEONE SAID,
  • 00:12:31.170 --> 00:12:32.240
  • "YOU REVEAL
  • 00:12:32.240 --> 00:12:33.280
  • YOUR VULNERABLE PAIN
  • 00:12:33.280 --> 00:12:35.130
  • BECAUSE ALL OF US HAVE IT."
  • 00:12:35.130 --> 00:12:37.230
  • AND LIFE IS NOT
  • 00:12:37.230 --> 00:12:39.080
  • THIS PRETTY PICTURE ALWAYS.
  • 00:12:39.080 --> 00:12:41.040
  • WHAT I FOUND IS THAT MY LIFE
  • 00:12:41.040 --> 00:12:43.240
  • WITH OTHER PEOPLE'S LIFE,
  • 00:12:43.240 --> 00:12:45.110
  • AT SOME POINT IT INTERSECTS,
  • 00:12:45.110 --> 00:12:47.030
  • WHETHER IT IS THROUGH
  • 00:12:47.030 --> 00:12:48.090
  • THE CHILDHOOD OR THE CHILDREN
  • 00:12:48.090 --> 00:12:50.050
  • OR THE DIVORCE
  • 00:12:50.050 --> 00:12:51.130
  • OR THE MINISTRY
  • 00:12:51.130 --> 00:12:52.220
  • OR THE LOSS OF FINANCES
  • 00:12:52.220 --> 00:12:53.280
  • OR THE LOSS OF REPUTATION
  • 00:12:53.280 --> 00:12:55.020
  • OR THE LOSS OF LOVE
  • 00:12:55.020 --> 00:12:56.100
  • OR HEARTBREAK
  • 00:12:56.100 --> 00:12:57.170
  • OR THE DEPRESSION
  • 00:12:57.170 --> 00:12:58.240
  • OR THINKING, WHAT NOW?
  • 00:12:58.260 --> 00:13:01.280
  • IT IS OVER BUT ALWAYS THOUGHT
  • 00:13:01.280 --> 00:13:04.180
  • I HAD SOMETHING GREATER,
  • 00:13:04.180 --> 00:13:05.280
  • THIS DIVINE SENSE OF PURPOSE
  • 00:13:05.280 --> 00:13:07.060
  • AND THAT IS
  • 00:13:07.060 --> 00:13:08.140
  • YOUR SUPREME REASON FOR BEING.
  • 00:13:08.140 --> 00:13:09.170
  • AND WHAT THIS BOOK IS ABOUT
  • 00:13:09.170 --> 00:13:11.000
  • IS OUR LIVES INTERSECTING
  • 00:13:11.000 --> 00:13:13.170
  • TO LET YOU KNOW
  • 00:13:13.170 --> 00:13:14.260
  • THERE IS A GREAT GOD
  • 00:13:14.260 --> 00:13:16.100
  • THAT I DON'T CARE
  • 00:13:16.100 --> 00:13:17.180
  • HOW MANY TIMES
  • 00:13:17.180 --> 00:13:18.280
  • YOU HAVE FALLEN DOWN
  • 00:13:18.280 --> 00:13:20.050
  • OR HOW BROKEN THINGS ARE
  • 00:13:20.050 --> 00:13:21.180
  • OR WHAT CHAPTER
  • 00:13:21.180 --> 00:13:22.260
  • OR WHAT PARAGRAPH
  • 00:13:22.260 --> 00:13:24.040
  • OR WHAT SENTENCE
  • 00:13:24.040 --> 00:13:25.120
  • OR HOW DEEP OR HOW DARK
  • 00:13:25.120 --> 00:13:26.240
  • OR HOW DEMONIC
  • 00:13:26.240 --> 00:13:28.050
  • IT IS RIGHT NOW, THAT GOD,
  • 00:13:28.050 --> 00:13:30.030
  • I JUST SAID, DON'T QUIT.
  • 00:13:30.030 --> 00:13:31.220
  • LIKE GOD SAYS,
  • 00:13:31.220 --> 00:13:33.050
  • "I HAVE SOMETHING GREATER ."
  • 00:13:33.050 --> 00:13:34.160
  • AND SOMETHING GREATER
  • 00:13:34.160 --> 00:13:35.270
  • NECESSARILY, ANOTHER MARRIAGE,
  • 00:13:37.180 --> 00:13:40.040
  • A NEW CAR, A BETTER MINISTRY.
  • 00:13:40.040 --> 00:13:41.170
  • IT IS NONE OF THAT.
  • 00:13:41.170 --> 00:13:43.050
  • I'M OKAY.
  • 00:13:45.190 --> 00:13:47.020
  • I'M GOOD.
  • 00:13:47.020 --> 00:13:48.220
  • HE LOVES ME.
  • 00:13:48.220 --> 00:13:49.270
  • I REMEMBER THE DAY I SAID,
  • 00:13:49.270 --> 00:13:51.140
  • "GOD, WHAT IF I NEVER PREACH
  • 00:13:51.140 --> 00:13:52.240
  • ANOTHER SERMON?"
  • 00:13:52.240 --> 00:13:54.000
  • HE'S LIKE, "I LOVE YOU."
  • 00:13:54.000 --> 00:13:56.170
  • I DIDN'T HAVE TO DO.
  • 00:13:56.170 --> 00:13:58.230
  • MEANING LIKE I DID
  • 00:13:58.230 --> 00:14:00.040
  • THAT I KNOW THERE IS PURPOSE
  • 00:14:00.040 --> 00:14:01.110
  • BUT THERE IS
  • 00:14:01.110 --> 00:14:02.210
  • SOMETHING GREATER
  • 00:14:02.210 --> 00:14:03.270
  • IS HE HAD GREAT PEACE FOR ME,
  • 00:14:03.270 --> 00:14:05.040
  • GREAT JOY.
  • 00:14:05.040 --> 00:14:06.130
  • DO YOU KNOW WHAT
  • 00:14:06.130 --> 00:14:07.210
  • MY PRAYER BECAME, JAMES?
  • 00:14:07.210 --> 00:14:09.060
  • I JUST WANT TO DIE WHOLE.
  • 00:14:09.060 --> 00:14:11.280
  • I JUST WANTED HIS WHOLENESS.
  • 00:14:11.280 --> 00:14:14.200
  • AND IT WASN'T
  • 00:14:14.200 --> 00:14:17.120
  • I WANT A MILLION DOLLARS
  • 00:14:17.120 --> 00:14:18.210
  • IN THE BANK.
  • 00:14:18.210 --> 00:14:20.020
  • I WANT A BIG MINISTRY.
  • 00:14:20.020 --> 00:14:21.110
  • I WANT RESTORATION HERE.
  • 00:14:21.110 --> 00:14:22.240
  • I JUST WANTED
  • 00:14:22.240 --> 00:14:24.090
  • JUST TO WAKE UP EVERY DAY
  • 00:14:24.090 --> 00:14:26.110
  • AND WHEN I STOPPED PURSUING
  • 00:14:26.110 --> 00:14:28.230
  • ALL THESE THINGS
  • 00:14:28.230 --> 00:14:30.150
  • THAT I THOUGHT,
  • 00:14:30.150 --> 00:14:31.290
  • GOD SPOKE TO ME WHEN
  • 00:14:31.290 --> 00:14:33.170
  • I WAS 18 YEARS OLD AND SAID,
  • 00:14:33.170 --> 00:14:34.230
  • "YOU'LL SEE NATIONS CHANGED."
  • 00:14:34.230 --> 00:14:37.210
  • I DID EVERYTHING
  • 00:14:37.210 --> 00:14:38.290
  • THAT I THOUGHT HE ASKED OF ME.
  • 00:14:38.290 --> 00:14:40.160
  • BUILT ONE
  • 00:14:40.160 --> 00:14:41.260
  • OF THE LARGEST CHURCHES,
  • 00:14:41.260 --> 00:14:43.040
  • CREATED ONE OF THE BIGGEST
  • 00:14:43.040 --> 00:14:44.190
  • MEDIA MINISTRIES,
  • 00:14:44.190 --> 00:14:45.260
  • DID ALL THESE THINGS,
  • 00:14:45.260 --> 00:14:47.120
  • AND GOD USED THOSE THINGS
  • 00:14:47.120 --> 00:14:48.270
  • BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:14:48.270 --> 00:14:50.060
  • THOSE WEREN'T THE WAYS
  • 00:14:50.060 --> 00:14:51.270
  • I SAW NATIONS CHANGED.
  • 00:14:51.270 --> 00:14:53.100
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:14:53.100 --> 00:14:54.180
  • IT'S TAKEN ME 53 YEARS,
  • 00:14:54.180 --> 00:14:55.280
  • LIKE PAULA,
  • 00:14:55.280 --> 00:14:57.090
  • GET OUT OF THE WAY
  • 00:14:57.090 --> 00:14:58.190
  • AND STOP TRYING
  • 00:14:58.190 --> 00:14:59.230
  • TO PUT YOUR HANDS ON THE ARK
  • 00:14:59.230 --> 00:15:01.010
  • AND HELP GOD OUT.
  • 00:15:01.010 --> 00:15:02.100
  • WHAT HAPPENED WAS
  • 00:15:02.100 --> 00:15:03.190
  • 18 YEARS AGO GOD GAVE ME
  • 00:15:03.190 --> 00:15:04.240
  • THIS CRAZY ASSIGNMENT,
  • 00:15:04.240 --> 00:15:06.270
  • THIS MAN
  • 00:15:06.270 --> 00:15:08.060
  • BY THE NAME OF DONALD TRUMP
  • 00:15:08.060 --> 00:15:10.050
  • AT THE TIME
  • 00:15:10.050 --> 00:15:11.160
  • CALLED ME OUT THE BLUE.
  • 00:15:11.160 --> 00:15:12.240
  • HE WAS WATCHING
  • 00:15:12.240 --> 00:15:14.010
  • CHRISTIAN TELEVISION,
  • 00:15:14.010 --> 00:15:15.100
  • WHICH HE'D DO OFTEN,
  • 00:15:15.100 --> 00:15:16.200
  • WATCH YOUR PROGRAM,
  • 00:15:16.200 --> 00:15:17.290
  • WATCH SO MANY PROGRAMS.
  • 00:15:17.290 --> 00:15:19.060
  • I JUST THINK,
  • 00:15:19.060 --> 00:15:20.160
  • THIS BILLIONAIRE
  • 00:15:20.160 --> 00:15:21.220
  • NEEDS THE LORD.
  • 00:15:21.220 --> 00:15:23.030
  • GOD SAID, "SHOW HIM WHO I AM."
  • 00:15:23.030 --> 00:15:24.110
  • I KNOW THE LORD'S VOICE.
  • 00:15:24.110 --> 00:15:26.180
  • LITTLE DID I KNOW
  • 00:15:26.180 --> 00:15:27.260
  • 18 YEARS LATER
  • 00:15:27.260 --> 00:15:29.200
  • THAT HE WOULD,
  • 00:15:29.200 --> 00:15:31.060
  • OR AT THAT TIME
  • 00:15:31.060 --> 00:15:32.160
  • 16 YEARS LATER THAT
  • 00:15:32.160 --> 00:15:33.220
  • HE WOULD BECOME PRESIDENT
  • 00:15:33.220 --> 00:15:35.060
  • OF THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:15:35.060 --> 00:15:36.150
  • AND THAT THE WAY
  • 00:15:36.150 --> 00:15:37.230
  • THAT NATIONS WOULD BE SHAKEN
  • 00:15:37.230 --> 00:15:38.260
  • WOULD NOT BE THROUGH ANYTHING
  • 00:15:38.260 --> 00:15:40.050
  • THAT I DID BUT THROUGH
  • 00:15:40.050 --> 00:15:41.210
  • WHAT THE CHURCH WOULD DO
  • 00:15:41.210 --> 00:15:43.010
  • AND HOW GOD
  • 00:15:43.010 --> 00:15:44.120
  • WOULD USE THE CHURCH
  • 00:15:44.120 --> 00:15:45.190
  • TO SHOW THIS MAN HIS LOVE
  • 00:15:45.190 --> 00:15:47.000
  • AND TO SHOW THE WORLD
  • 00:15:47.000 --> 00:15:48.070
  • HIS LOVE.
  • 00:15:48.070 --> 00:15:49.220
  • James: DO YOU THINK HE DOES
  • 00:15:49.220 --> 00:15:51.020
  • REALLY WANT TO HEAR COUNSEL?
  • 00:15:51.020 --> 00:15:52.070
  • HE TOLD ME HE WANTED
  • 00:15:52.070 --> 00:15:53.150
  • TO HEAR WISDOM.
  • 00:15:53.150 --> 00:15:54.210
  • DO YOU BELIEVE HE DOES?
  • 00:15:54.210 --> 00:15:55.260
  • Paula: I ONE HUNDRED PERCENT
  • 00:15:55.260 --> 00:15:57.050
  • KNOW HE DOES.
  • 00:15:57.050 --> 00:15:58.130
  • I'VE GOTTEN AN INSIDE VIEW
  • 00:15:58.130 --> 00:15:59.180
  • AND I'VE WATCHED IT.
  • 00:15:59.180 --> 00:16:01.000
  • HIS HUNGER, HIS DESIRE,
  • 00:16:01.050 --> 00:16:04.050
  • THE PEOPLE
  • 00:16:04.050 --> 00:16:05.210
  • THAT HE WANTS AROUND HIM.
  • 00:16:05.210 --> 00:16:07.070
  • AND JAMES, THE IMPACT
  • 00:16:07.070 --> 00:16:08.140
  • YOU'VE HAD ON HIM, HIS SONS,
  • 00:16:08.140 --> 00:16:11.140
  • THEIR FAMILY, YOU ALWAYS
  • 00:16:11.140 --> 00:16:14.000
  • SPEAK LOVE AND TRUTH.
  • 00:16:14.000 --> 00:16:15.220
  • BUT IT IS NOT
  • 00:16:15.220 --> 00:16:17.030
  • JUST WHAT YOU SPEAK,
  • 00:16:17.030 --> 00:16:18.050
  • IT'S WHAT YOU LIVE.
  • 00:16:18.050 --> 00:16:20.060
  • AND IT IS WHAT YOU'VE LIVED.
  • 00:16:20.060 --> 00:16:21.130
  • AND I THINK THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:16:21.130 --> 00:16:23.000
  • THIS BOOK IS SO MUCH ABOUT
  • 00:16:23.000 --> 00:16:24.090
  • IS THAT WE'RE ALL
  • 00:16:24.090 --> 00:16:25.170
  • LIVING EPISTLES.
  • 00:16:25.200 --> 00:16:28.200
  • IF OUR LIFE CAN PREACH GRACE
  • 00:16:28.200 --> 00:16:30.230
  • AND STRENGTH AND COME BACK,
  • 00:16:30.230 --> 00:16:32.210
  • AND GOODNESS AND FAVOR
  • 00:16:32.210 --> 00:16:35.200
  • THE BOTTOM LINE IS
  • 00:16:37.260 --> 00:16:39.090
  • THERE IS NOTHING
  • 00:16:39.090 --> 00:16:40.180
  • TOO DIFFICULT FOR GOD.
  • 00:16:40.180 --> 00:16:41.230
  • AND GOD HAS PUT A SENSE
  • 00:16:41.230 --> 00:16:43.010
  • AND HE JUST WANTS US TO COME
  • 00:16:45.180 --> 00:16:46.260
  • IN ALIGNMENT WITH HIM.
  • 00:16:46.260 --> 00:16:47.280
  • THAT'S WHAT THIS BOOK,
  • 00:16:47.280 --> 00:16:49.000
  • IT IS NOT ABOUT
  • 00:16:49.000 --> 00:16:50.070
  • MY SOMETHING GREATER,
  • 00:16:50.070 --> 00:16:51.100
  • IT'S ABOUT
  • 00:16:51.100 --> 00:16:52.230
  • YOUR SOMETHING GREATER.
  • 00:16:52.230 --> 00:16:54.050
  • IT IS THAT GOD HAS
  • 00:16:54.050 --> 00:16:55.150
  • SOMETHING GREATER FOR YOU.
  • 00:16:55.150 --> 00:16:56.260
  • THIS IS REALLY HARD
  • 00:16:56.260 --> 00:16:58.050
  • FOR PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:16:58.050 --> 00:16:59.220
  • BECAUSE I WAS GREAT
  • 00:16:59.220 --> 00:17:01.050
  • AT BEING --
  • 00:17:01.050 --> 00:17:03.250
  • WHEN I WAS GROWING UP,
  • 00:17:03.250 --> 00:17:05.040
  • I BECAME
  • 00:17:05.040 --> 00:17:06.140
  • A MASTERFUL MANIPULATOR,
  • 00:17:06.140 --> 00:17:08.140
  • JAMES, WHEN I WOULD SAY,
  • 00:17:08.140 --> 00:17:10.000
  • "BUT YOU DON'T KNOW!
  • 00:17:10.000 --> 00:17:11.060
  • YOUR DADDY
  • 00:17:11.060 --> 00:17:12.100
  • DIDN'T KILL HIMSELF."
  • 00:17:12.100 --> 00:17:13.170
  • I COULD GET MY MOM,
  • 00:17:13.170 --> 00:17:14.230
  • I COULD GET EVERY TEACHER.
  • 00:17:14.230 --> 00:17:16.040
  • IF I GOT BACKED INTO A CORNER
  • 00:17:16.040 --> 00:17:17.130
  • AND FELT TOO SCARED,
  • 00:17:17.130 --> 00:17:18.180
  • "YOU DON'T KNOW!
  • 00:17:18.180 --> 00:17:20.030
  • YOUR DADDY
  • 00:17:20.030 --> 00:17:21.120
  • DIDN'T KILL HIMSELF."
  • 00:17:21.120 --> 00:17:22.190
  • I COULD WEAR
  • 00:17:22.190 --> 00:17:23.240
  • THAT VICTIMHOOD SO WELL.
  • 00:17:23.240 --> 00:17:26.070
  • AND GOD REALLY
  • 00:17:26.070 --> 00:17:28.070
  • HAD TO DELIVER ME
  • 00:17:28.070 --> 00:17:29.160
  • James: IT'S NOT THERE NOW.
  • 00:17:30.200 --> 00:17:31.210
  • IT'S GONE.
  • 00:17:31.210 --> 00:17:32.250
  • IT'S AWESOME TO WATCH.
  • 00:17:32.250 --> 00:17:33.290
  • Paula: BECAUSE
  • 00:17:33.290 --> 00:17:35.030
  • WHAT HAPPENED IN HERE THAT'S
  • 00:17:35.030 --> 00:17:36.090
  • IS THAT IT CHANGES
  • 00:17:37.220 --> 00:17:40.020
  • YOUR PERCEPTION.
  • 00:17:40.020 --> 00:17:41.240
  • BECAUSE I RECOGNIZE NOW THAT
  • 00:17:42.150 --> 00:17:45.150
  • A SOVEREIGN GOD HAS A PLAN
  • 00:17:45.150 --> 00:17:47.110
  • FOR ALL OF OUR LIVES.
  • 00:17:47.110 --> 00:17:48.240
  • THAT THE ONLY WAY
  • 00:17:48.240 --> 00:17:50.030
  • IT COULD BE ABORTED
  • 00:17:50.030 --> 00:17:51.080
  • IS IF WE LET GO OF IT.
  • 00:17:51.080 --> 00:17:52.210
  • AND THAT WHAT IF MY FATHER,
  • 00:17:52.210 --> 00:17:55.050
  • EVERYBODY IS LIKE,
  • 00:17:55.050 --> 00:17:56.100
  • OH I'M SO SORRY,
  • 00:17:56.100 --> 00:17:57.170
  • YOUR DADDY DIED.
  • 00:17:57.170 --> 00:17:58.210
  • BUT EVERYTHING I NEEDED
  • 00:17:58.210 --> 00:17:59.260
  • I GOT FROM MY FATHER
  • 00:17:59.260 --> 00:18:01.040
  • IN FIVE YEARS --
  • 00:18:01.040 --> 00:18:02.130
  • EVERYTHING I NEEDED.
  • 00:18:02.130 --> 00:18:03.210
  • BECAUSE I THINK
  • 00:18:03.210 --> 00:18:06.070
  • WHAT IF HE WOULD HAVE LIVED?
  • 00:18:06.070 --> 00:18:08.170
  • I KNOW THE DYSFUNCTION
  • 00:18:08.170 --> 00:18:10.010
  • OF MY FATHER.
  • 00:18:10.010 --> 00:18:12.000
  • I WOULDN'T BE WHO I AM TODAY.
  • 00:18:12.000 --> 00:18:14.090
  • I WOULD HAVE BEEN FORMED
  • 00:18:14.090 --> 00:18:15.220
  • COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.
  • 00:18:15.220 --> 00:18:17.020
  • AND MAYBE I WOULD HAVE BEEN
  • 00:18:17.020 --> 00:18:18.090
  • THE ONE THAT TOOK MY LIFE.
  • 00:18:18.090 --> 00:18:20.010
  • SO WE SOMETIMES
  • 00:18:20.010 --> 00:18:21.110
  • DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:18:21.110 --> 00:18:22.260
  • THE DARK PLACES.
  • 00:18:22.260 --> 00:18:25.120
  • GOD WILL USE THAT.
  • 00:18:25.120 --> 00:18:27.120
  • James: YOU'RE DOING YOUR BEST
  • 00:18:27.120 --> 00:18:28.240
  • TO REVEAL THE LIGHT
  • 00:18:28.240 --> 00:18:30.010
  • AND THE TRUTH.
  • 00:18:30.010 --> 00:18:31.100
  • DO YOU APPRECIATE PAULA WHITE
  • 00:18:31.100 --> 00:18:32.140
  • ON HER JOURNEY?
  • 00:18:32.140 --> 00:18:33.260
  • PAULA, I JUST THANK GOD
  • 00:18:33.260 --> 00:18:35.070
  • FOR HIS GRACE.
  • 00:18:35.070 --> 00:18:36.160
  • THIS IS AN UNBELIEVABLE STORY.
  • 00:18:36.160 --> 00:18:38.200
  • HER LIFE IS WRITING A STORY.
  • 00:18:38.200 --> 00:18:40.250
  • CAN I JUST TELL YOU THIS?
  • 00:18:42.050 --> 00:18:43.090
  • WHAT SHE'S DOING.
  • 00:18:43.090 --> 00:18:44.160
  • TWO REASONS, SHE LOVES GOD.
  • 00:18:45.080 --> 00:18:48.080
  • LOVE HER NEIGHBOR.
  • 00:18:49.210 --> 00:18:50.240
  • SHE REALLY LOVES YOU.
  • 00:18:50.240 --> 00:18:52.050
  • AND I'VE WATCHED.
  • 00:18:52.050 --> 00:18:53.090
  • I'M TELLING YOU,

  • THAT'S WHY BETTY AND I DO

  • WHAT WE DO.
  • 00:18:55.200 --> 00:18:56.240
  • I PROMISE YOU IT IS.
  • 00:18:56.240 --> 00:18:58.000
  • THAT'S ALL.
  • 00:18:58.000 --> 00:18:59.040
  • FATHER, THANK YOU
  • 00:18:59.040 --> 00:19:00.100

  • AND THANKS TO PAULA?
  • 00:19:12.270 --> 00:19:13.290
  • WHAT A BLESSING!
  • 00:19:13.290 --> 00:19:15.010

  • I KNOW YOU REALLY APPRECIATE.
  • 00:19:18.080 --> 00:19:19.100
  • WE'RE RESCUING PRECIOUS PEOPLE
  • 00:19:19.100 --> 00:19:20.120
  • WHO HAVE BEEN
  • 00:19:20.120 --> 00:19:21.220
  • ALL THOSE MISSIONARIES HAVE
  • 00:19:23.130 --> 00:19:25.150
  • IS HOPE AND A PRAYER
  • 00:19:25.150 --> 00:19:27.130
  • UNTIL YOU BECOME
  • 00:19:27.130 --> 00:19:28.160
  • THE ANSWER TO THAT PRAYER.
  • 00:19:28.160 --> 00:19:30.010
  • AND THEN YOU MAKE IT POSSIBLE
  • 00:19:30.010 --> 00:19:31.090
  • FOR THEM TO FULFILL
  • 00:19:31.090 --> 00:19:32.160

  • MANY WHO ARE TRAPPED.
  • 00:19:37.240 --> 00:19:38.270
  • YOU HAVE JUST WORKED MIRACLES
  • 00:19:38.270 --> 00:19:40.130
  • IN THOUSANDS
  • 00:19:40.130 --> 00:19:41.130

  • AND BEING TAKEN INTO
  • 00:19:49.100 --> 00:19:50.250
  • THE DARKNESS AND THE EVIL
  • 00:19:50.250 --> 00:19:52.190
  • OF LIFE AND BEING ABUSED,
  • 00:19:52.190 --> 00:19:54.140
  • AND POSSIBLY DYING

  • THESE CHILDREN ARE LIED TO

  • THEY'LL KNOW THE DIFFERENCE
  • 00:20:04.030 --> 00:20:05.070

  • SAVE THEIR LIVES, POSSIBLY.
  • 00:20:11.260 --> 00:20:13.140
  • James: IT COSTS AN AVERAGE
  • 00:20:13.140 --> 00:20:14.180
  • OF $128 TO REACH ONE;
  • 00:20:14.180 --> 00:20:17.060
  • TO RESCUE THEM AND TO BEGIN
  • 00:20:17.060 --> 00:20:18.160
  • THE RESTORATION PROCESS.
  • 00:20:18.160 --> 00:20:20.150
  • WOULD YOU HELP?
  • 00:20:20.150 --> 00:20:21.270
  • DID YOU KNOW WE'VE HAD
  • 00:20:21.270 --> 00:20:23.000
  • SOME FRIENDS STEP UP AND SAY,
  • 00:20:23.000 --> 00:20:24.030
  • "WE'LL PUT UP
  • 00:20:24.030 --> 00:20:25.070
  • A $320.000 MATCHING GIFT"?
  • 00:20:25.080 --> 00:20:28.080
  • WHICH MEANS IF YOU HELP ONE
  • 00:20:28.080 --> 00:20:29.250
  • IT'S TWO.
  • 00:20:29.250 --> 00:20:30.290
  • I ALWAYS CHALLENGE PEOPLE
  • 00:20:30.290 --> 00:20:32.020
  • AND I ALWAYS WILL DO THIS.
  • 00:20:32.020 --> 00:20:33.110
  • PLEASE THINK MUCH BIGGER
  • 00:20:33.110 --> 00:20:34.160
  • THAN YOU NORMALLY DO

  • WHEN IT COMES
  • 00:20:35.210 --> 00:20:36.230
  • TO MISSION OUTREACH.
  • 00:20:36.230 --> 00:20:38.000
  • $1280 RESCUES TEN.
  • 00:20:38.000 --> 00:20:40.090
