  • HERE TONIGHT IS TO DISCUSS YOUR BRAND-NEW BOOK.
  • 00:03:58.200 --> 00:04:02.030
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:04:02.050 --> 00:04:04.010
  • - 20 WAYS TO MAKE EVERY DAY BETTER.
  • 00:04:04.030 --> 00:04:06.170
  • WHY DID YOU WRITE THIS?
  • 00:04:06.190 --> 00:04:07.290
  • - WELL, I JUST THINK A LOT OF TIMES SO MANY DAYS
  • 00:04:08.010 --> 00:04:11.290
  • ARE WASTED BEING SAD, DISAPPOINTED,
  • 00:04:12.010 --> 00:04:15.230
  • DISCOURAGED, IN A BAD MOOD ABOUT SOMETHING YOU
  • 00:04:15.250 --> 00:04:18.190
  • REALLY CAN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT, AND YOU KNOW, THE
  • 00:04:18.210 --> 00:04:22.200
  • LONGER YOU LIVE THE MORE YOU THINK DIFFERENTLY
  • 00:04:22.220 --> 00:04:25.020
  • ABOUT LIFE.
  • 00:04:25.040 --> 00:04:27.020
  • AND SO I STARTED REALIZING -THIS KIND OF
  • 00:04:27.040 --> 00:04:31.200
  • HIT ME ABOUT FIVE YEARS AGO.
  • 00:04:31.220 --> 00:04:33.040
  • YOU KNOW, I'VE LIVED MORE OF MY LIFE THAN WHAT
  • 00:04:33.060 --> 00:04:34.270
  • I'VE GOT LEFT.
  • 00:04:34.290 --> 00:04:37.020
  • SO THAT'S KIND OF AN EYE OPENER.
  • 00:04:37.040 --> 00:04:39.050
  • YOU'RE LIKE I REALLY DON'T HAVE ANY TIME LEFT
  • 00:04:39.070 --> 00:04:42.150
  • TO WASTE, SO I DON'T WANT TO WASTE MY DAYS BECAUSE
  • 00:04:42.170 --> 00:04:46.230
  • I WAKE UP IN THE MORNING AND MAYBE I FEEL A LITTLE
  • 00:04:46.250 --> 00:04:48.290
  • OFF JUST DECIDING I'VE GOT TO HAVE A BAD DAY.
  • 00:04:49.010 --> 00:04:52.000
  • SO I'VE JUST WRITTEN THIS BOOK, AND IT'S SO SIMPLE,
  • 00:04:52.020 --> 00:04:55.130
  • SO PRACTICAL, 20 WAYS, 20 DIFFERENT WAYS, AND YOU
  • 00:04:55.150 --> 00:05:00.040
  • DON'T EVEN HAVE TO DO ALL 20, 20 DIFFERENT WAYS
  • 00:05:00.060 --> 00:05:02.260
  • THAT YOU CAN MAKE ANY DAY BETTER.
  • 00:05:02.280 --> 00:05:07.090
  • I GUESS THE QUESTION IS, OR MAYBE JUST THE
  • 00:05:07.110 --> 00:05:10.210
  • COMMENT, IF A PERSON IS HAVING A LOUSY DAY AND
  • 00:05:10.230 --> 00:05:13.240
  • SOMEBODY SAYS, HERE'S 20 DIFFERENT WAYS, JUST PICK
  • 00:05:13.260 --> 00:05:17.200
  • ONE OR TWO THAT YOU CAN MAKE THIS DAY BETTER, WHY
  • 00:05:17.220 --> 00:05:19.270
  • WOULDN'T THEY WANT TO DO THAT?
  • 00:05:19.290 --> 00:05:21.290
  • - YEAH.
  • 00:05:22.010 --> 00:05:23.230
  • - AND YET WE ALL KNOW THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:05:23.250 --> 00:05:26.140
  • JUST EVEN THOUGH THEY CAN HELP THEMSELVES THEY WON'T.
  • 00:05:26.160 --> 00:05:30.020
  • AND I'M BELIEVING THAT EVERYBODY WATCHING
  • 00:05:30.040 --> 00:05:33.150
  • TONIGHT WANTS TO DO BETTER IN THEIR LIFE
  • 00:05:33.170 --> 00:05:37.010
  • EVERY SINGLE DAY.
  • 00:05:37.030 --> 00:05:38.190
  • - YEAH, AND YOU KNOW, JOYCE, WHEN THEY ASKED ME
  • 00:05:38.210 --> 00:05:42.070
  • TO HOST THIS EVENING, I SAID GIVE ME THE BOOK.
  • 00:05:42.090 --> 00:05:46.000
  • I DON'T WANT TO GO ON THE AIR FEELING STUPID, AND
  • 00:05:46.020 --> 00:05:49.050
  • I'M TELLING YOU, JOYCE, I PICKED THE BOOK UP.
  • 00:05:49.070 --> 00:05:50.200
  • I MEAN, I READ IT.
  • 00:05:50.220 --> 00:05:52.160
  • IT WAS ABOUT A 90 MINUTE READ.
  • 00:05:52.180 --> 00:05:54.110
  • I MEAN, I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN.
  • 00:05:54.130 --> 00:05:56.290
  • IT SOUNDED LIKE YOU PREACHING, GREAT STORIES,
  • 00:05:57.010 --> 00:05:59.220
  • AND EVERY ONE OF THE 20 WAYS IS FANTASTIC.
  • 00:05:59.240 --> 00:06:04.290
  • YOU KIND OF START OFF IN THE INTRODUCTION WITH I
  • 00:06:05.010 --> 00:06:07.180
  • CAN'T WAIT UNTIL THIS YEAR IS OVER.
  • 00:06:07.200 --> 00:06:09.220
  • [ LAUGHTER ]
  • 00:06:09.240 --> 00:06:11.070
  • OH, MY GOODNESS, WHEN I READ THAT I THOUGHT, OH,
  • 00:06:11.090 --> 00:06:13.020
  • MY GOODNESS, YEAH, THAT'S KIND OF A WASTE TO KEEP
  • 00:06:13.040 --> 00:06:14.200
  • SAYING THAT.
  • 00:06:14.220 --> 00:06:15.230
  • TALK TO US ABOUT THAT.
  • 00:06:15.250 --> 00:06:16.230
  • - RIGHT.
  • 00:06:16.250 --> 00:06:18.090
  • WELL, SO MANY PEOPLE MAKE COMMENTS LIKE THAT, AND
  • 00:06:18.110 --> 00:06:20.040
  • YOU KNOW, I'VE MADE THEM, TOO.
  • 00:06:20.060 --> 00:06:22.040
  • BOY, I'LL BE GLAD WHEN THIS YEAR IS OVER.
  • 00:06:22.060 --> 00:06:23.040
  • HOPE NEXT YEAR IS BETTER.
  • 00:06:23.060 --> 00:06:24.130
  • I DON'T SAY THAT KIND OF STUFF ANYMORE BECAUSE I
  • 00:06:24.150 --> 00:06:26.120
  • REALLY WANT TO MAXIMIZE EVERY DAY, BUT WE DON'T
  • 00:06:26.140 --> 00:06:31.000
  • NEED TO LIVE WITH THIS STUDENT THAT WE JUST WANT
  • 00:06:31.020 --> 00:06:33.140
  • TO GET IT OVER WITH, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:06:33.160 --> 00:06:35.190
  • WE'RE NOT JUST TRYING TO SURVIVE EVERY DAY.
  • 00:06:35.210 --> 00:06:39.030
  • WE WANT TO LIVE EVERY DAY, AND I THINK THE
  • 00:06:39.050 --> 00:06:42.050
  • THING THAT WE ALL HAVE TO REALIZE IS THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:06:42.070 --> 00:06:45.250
  • THAT GOD IS MAKING HIS APPEAL TO THE WORLD TO
  • 00:06:45.270 --> 00:06:48.000
  • US, THAT WE'RE HIS AMBASSADOR.
  • 00:06:48.020 --> 00:06:49.190
  • - WE ARE HIS AMBASSADOR.
  • 00:06:49.210 --> 00:06:51.150
  • - AND HE'S -I LOVE THE AMPLIFIED BIBLE -GOD IS
  • 00:06:51.170 --> 00:06:55.160
  • MAKING HIS APPEAL TO THE WORLD THROUGH US, SO
  • 00:06:55.180 --> 00:06:58.220
  • THERE'S NOT MUCH POINT IN HAVING BUMPER STICKERS ON
  • 00:06:58.240 --> 00:07:01.130
  • OUR CARS AND CARRYING OUR BIG BIBLES AND WEARING
  • 00:07:01.150 --> 00:07:07.150
  • OUR CHRISTIAN JEWELRY IF JUST OUR WHOLE DEMEANOR
  • 00:07:07.170 --> 00:07:10.010
  • SAYS WE'RE NOT HAPPY WITH WHAT WE'VE GOT.
  • 00:07:10.030 --> 00:07:12.050
  • NOW, WE HAVE BAD THINGS THAT HAPPEN TO US.
  • 00:07:12.070 --> 00:07:14.130
  • WE HAVE DAYS WHERE WE'RE HURTING.
  • 00:07:14.150 --> 00:07:17.110
  • WE HAVE DAYS WHERE WE'RE SAD.
  • 00:07:17.130 --> 00:07:20.150
  • WE MAY HAVE DAYS WHERE WE'RE SICK, AND I'M NOT
  • 00:07:20.170 --> 00:07:21.290
  • SAYING THAT EVERY DAY JUST NEEDS TO BE [ CHUCKLING ]
  • 00:07:22.010 --> 00:07:23.250
  • [ LAUGHTER ] BUT IF I CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT
  • 00:07:23.270 --> 00:07:29.150
  • THEN I WANT TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
  • 00:07:29.170 --> 00:07:31.130
  • YOU KNOW, IN EPHESIANS 6 IT SAYS HAVING DONE ALL
  • 00:07:31.150 --> 00:07:34.200
  • THE CRISIS DEMANDS, YOU ARE TO STAND FIRMLY IN
  • 00:07:34.220 --> 00:07:37.000
  • YOUR PLACE, SO I CAN'T EXPECT GOD TO DO WHAT I
  • 00:07:37.020 --> 00:07:39.230
  • CAN DO, BUT I CAN EXPECT HIM TO DO WHAT I CANNOT DO.
  • 00:07:39.250 --> 00:07:44.030
  • - THAT'S GOOD.
  • 00:07:44.050 --> 00:07:45.270
  • - SO I NEED TO FIRST MAKE SURE THAT I'M DOING
  • 00:07:45.290 --> 00:07:48.120
  • WHAT HE'S SHOWING ME TO DO, AND THEN WHEN I DO
  • 00:07:48.140 --> 00:07:51.190
  • THAT THEN HE'LL ALWAYS DO THE PART THAT I CANNOT DO.
  • 00:07:51.210 --> 00:07:56.030
  • - EXCELLENT.
  • 00:07:56.050 --> 00:07:57.260
  • [ APPLAUSE ]
  • 00:07:57.280 --> 00:08:04.240
  • - YOU KNOW, BY THE WAY, IF YOU'RE JUST TUNING IN
  • 00:08:04.260 --> 00:08:07.150
  • WE'RE DISCUSSING JOYCE'S LATEST BOOK, 20 WAYS TO
  • 00:08:07.170 --> 00:08:11.230
  • MAKE EVERY DAY BETTER.
  • 00:08:11.250 --> 00:08:15.070
  • ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I LOVED ABOUT THE OPENING
  • 00:08:15.090 --> 00:08:19.260
  • AS WELL WAS THAT YOU SAID START A DAY TALKING TO GOD.
  • 00:08:19.280 --> 00:08:24.270
  • HAVE A CONVERSATION.
  • 00:08:24.290 --> 00:08:26.110
  • - NOT PRAYING. TALKING.
  • 00:08:26.130 --> 00:08:40.030
  • - NOT PRAYING. TALKING.
  • 00:08:40.030 --> 00:08:53.030
  • - NOT PRAYING. TALKING.
  • 00:08:53.030 --> 00:09:09.180
  • - NOT PRAYING. TALKING.
  • 00:09:09.180 --> 00:09:09.200
  • - SO HOW MANY TIMES ARE PEOPLE REALLY GOING
  • 00:09:11.000 --> 00:09:12.050
  • THROUGH SOMETHING AND MAYBE THEY'RE TALKING TO
  • 00:09:12.070 --> 00:09:12.290
  • THEIR FRIENDS ABOUT IT.
  • 00:09:13.010 --> 00:09:26.120
  • THEIR FRIENDS ABOUT IT.
  • 00:09:26.120 --> 00:09:48.050
  • THEIR FRIENDS ABOUT IT.
  • 00:09:48.050 --> 00:09:48.070
  • AND THAT'S NOT WHAT GOD WANTS.
  • 00:09:49.100 --> 00:09:50.170
  • HE WANTS US TO BE REAL WITH HIM AND TO TALK TO
  • 00:09:50.190 --> 00:09:51.250
  • HIM ABOUT REAL THINGS AND NOT TRY TO SOUND LIKE
  • 00:09:51.270 --> 00:09:51.290
  • SOMEBODY THAT WE'RE NOT, AND SO I LIKE TO JUST
  • 00:09:54.000 --> 00:09:56.170

  • 00:17:57.210 --> 00:18:00.090
  • LOOKING AT HER NEW BOOK, 20 WAYS TO MAKE
  • 00:18:00.110 --> 00:18:03.130
  • EVERY DAY BETTER.
  • 00:18:03.150 --> 00:18:05.200
  • I THINK YOU SHOULD GET IT.
  • 00:18:05.220 --> 00:18:06.200
  • I READ IT COVER TO COVER.
  • 00:18:06.220 --> 00:18:08.140
  • IT TOUCHED MY HEART.
  • 00:18:08.160 --> 00:18:09.230
  • IT SOUNDS LIKE ONE OF HER MESSAGES LIKE YOU'RE
  • 00:18:09.250 --> 00:18:11.290
  • LISTENING TO HER TALK, AND I LOVE THE CHAPTER ON
  • 00:18:12.010 --> 00:18:16.270
  • HELPING OTHERS, JUST YOU DECIDE TO MAKE LIFE MORE
  • 00:18:16.290 --> 00:18:20.220
  • THAN JUST ABOUT YOURSELF.
  • 00:18:20.240 --> 00:18:22.080
  • JUST A POWERFUL CHAPTER.
  • 00:18:22.100 --> 00:18:24.060
  • - WELL, THAT'S ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS TO SHARE
  • 00:18:24.080 --> 00:18:25.170
  • ABOUT BECAUSE I FOUND MYSELF AS A CHRISTIAN
  • 00:18:25.190 --> 00:18:33.020
  • WITH A FAIRLY SUCCESSFUL MINISTRY STILL NOT BEING
  • 00:18:33.040 --> 00:18:35.250
  • REALLY HAPPY, AND IN TALKING TO GOD AND HAVING
  • 00:18:35.270 --> 00:18:42.050
  • A CONVERSATION WITH GOD ABOUT OKAY, WHAT IS MY PROBLEM?
  • 00:18:42.070 --> 00:18:44.240
  • YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES WE DON'T REALLY -- WE ASK GOD
  • 00:18:44.260 --> 00:18:48.140
  • WHAT'S WRONG, BUT SOMETIMES WE NEED TO SAY,
  • 00:18:48.160 --> 00:18:50.270
  • WHAT IS MY PROBLEM?
  • 00:18:50.290 --> 00:18:53.110
  • IS THERE SOMETHING HERE THAT IS WRONG
  • 00:18:53.130 --> 00:18:56.200
  • THAT I'M NOT SEEING?
  • 00:18:56.220 --> 00:18:58.110
  • AND RICH, SO HELP ME, GOD JUST SAID TO ME YOU'RE
  • 00:18:58.130 --> 00:19:00.220
  • NOT HAPPY BECAUSE YOU'RE SELFISH.
  • 00:19:00.240 --> 00:19:05.060
  • WELL, I MEAN, WAIT A MINUTE, I'M NOT SELFISH.
  • 00:19:05.080 --> 00:19:07.160
  • I MEAN, I'M IN MINISTRY. I'M SACRIFICING.
  • 00:19:07.180 --> 00:19:11.060
  • BUT YOU KNOW WHAT I FOUND OUT, FOR THOSE OF US THAT
  • 00:19:11.080 --> 00:19:13.140
  • ARE IN MINISTRY, IT'S NOT JUST ABOUT WHAT YOU DO
  • 00:19:13.160 --> 00:19:15.170
  • PUBLICLY, BUT IT'S EVEN MORE SO ABOUT
  • 00:19:15.190 --> 00:19:19.000
  • WHAT YOU DO PRIVATELY.
  • 00:19:19.020 --> 00:19:21.180
  • AND I THINK THE ANOINTING ON ANYBODY'S LIFE IS MORE
  • 00:19:21.200 --> 00:19:26.230
  • AFFECTED BY WHAT YOU DO PRIVATELY THAN IT IS BY
  • 00:19:26.250 --> 00:19:28.160
  • WHAT YOU DO PUBLICLY.
  • 00:19:28.180 --> 00:19:30.230
  • SO I FIND-- [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:19:30.250 --> 00:19:39.050
  • I FIND IT REALLY EXHILARATES ME, AND I'VE
  • 00:19:39.070 --> 00:19:45.280
  • KIND OF FORMED A HABIT OF DOING THIS, TO SIT
  • 00:19:46.000 --> 00:19:47.210
  • AND THINK IN THE MORNING WHAT CAN I DO
  • 00:19:47.230 --> 00:19:52.080
  • FOR SOMEBODY ELSE TODAY?
  • 00:19:52.100 --> 00:19:54.230
  • BECAUSE YOU KNOW REALLY WHEN WE'RE HAVING A BAD
  • 00:19:54.250 --> 00:19:56.270
  • DAY, A LOT OF TIMES IT'S BECAUSE WE'RE JUST
  • 00:19:56.290 --> 00:20:00.240
  • THINKING ABOUT US AND OUR PROBLEMS, AND WHAT PEOPLE
  • 00:20:00.260 --> 00:20:04.030
  • AREN'T DOING FOR US, AND WHAT WE DON'T HAVE, AND
  • 00:20:04.050 --> 00:20:06.210
  • HOW BAD WE FEEL, AND HOW BAD WE'VE GOT IT.
  • 00:20:06.230 --> 00:20:10.010
  • IT ALL GETS TO BE ABOUT ME, ME, ME, ME.
  • 00:20:10.030 --> 00:20:12.280
  • SO HONESTLY AND TRULY, IF SOMEBODY IS HAVING A BAD
  • 00:20:13.000 --> 00:20:16.070
  • DAY, ONE OF THE BEST THINGS THEY CAN DO IS
  • 00:20:16.090 --> 00:20:19.070
  • JUST GO DO SOMETHING FOR SOMEBODY ELSE, EVEN IF
  • 00:20:19.090 --> 00:20:22.170
  • IT'S MAKE A PHONE CALL AND TELL SOMEBODY YOU
  • 00:20:22.190 --> 00:20:24.020
  • APPRECIATE THEM, SIT DOWN AND WRITE A NOTE, SEND AN
  • 00:20:24.040 --> 00:20:27.070
  • EMAIL TELLING SOMEBODY THAT YOU WERE THINKING
  • 00:20:27.090 --> 00:20:29.210
  • ABOUT THEM AND YOU'RE PRAYING FOR THEM.
  • 00:20:29.230 --> 00:20:31.280
  • ANYTHING THAT CAN GET YOU OFF YOUR MIND CAN HELP
  • 00:20:32.000 --> 00:20:37.030
  • YOU HAVE A BETTER DAY.
  • 00:20:37.050 --> 00:20:39.060
  • I WANT TO STRESS AGAIN, LOOKING AT A BOOK LIKE
  • 00:20:39.080 --> 00:20:41.180
  • THIS, 20 WAYS TO MAKE EVERY DAY BETTER, THAT
  • 00:20:41.200 --> 00:20:43.210
  • DOESN'T MEAN YOU HAVE TO DO ALL 20 EVERY DAY.
  • 00:20:43.230 --> 00:20:46.280
  • BUT HONESTLY, I BELIEVE AND I'M NOT SAYING THIS
  • 00:20:47.000 --> 00:20:49.100
  • BECAUSE I WROTE THE BOOK, I THINK IF SOMEBODY'S
  • 00:20:49.120 --> 00:20:51.050
  • HAVING A BAD DAY, THEY CAN PICK THIS UP AND OPEN
  • 00:20:51.070 --> 00:20:53.070
  • IT AT RANDOM ANYWHERE, AND THERE'S GONNA BE
  • 00:20:53.090 --> 00:20:56.080
  • SOMETHING THERE THAT'S GONNA HELP THEM
  • 00:20:56.100 --> 00:20:58.290
  • IMPROVE THAT DAY.
  • 00:20:59.010 --> 00:21:01.170
  • - YEAH, THAT LINE YOU SAID ANYTHING I CAN DO SO
  • 00:21:01.190 --> 00:21:06.150
  • THAT I'M NOT THINKING ABOUT ME, OR YOU HAD
  • 00:21:06.170 --> 00:21:09.030
  • SOMETHING LIKE, IT'S SO CLEAR JOYCE TO SOMEHOW
  • 00:21:09.050 --> 00:21:13.250
  • GET IT OFF OF US, OFF OF ME AND ON TO OTHERS.
  • 00:21:13.270 --> 00:21:17.180
  • WHAT DO YOU TALK ABOUT WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:21:17.200 --> 00:21:19.250
  • REEXAMINING YOUR EXPECTATIONS?
  • 00:21:19.270 --> 00:21:24.100
  • - WELL THAT'S A DIFFERENT CHAPTER IN THE
  • 00:21:24.120 --> 00:21:27.000
  • BOOK, BUT IT'S INTERESTING I'VE LEARNED
  • 00:21:27.020 --> 00:21:29.150
  • THAT A LOT OF TIMES WE MAKE OURSELVES UNHAPPY
  • 00:21:29.170 --> 00:21:34.140
  • ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO OUR RELATIONSHIPS WITH
  • 00:21:34.160 --> 00:21:38.020
  • OTHER PEOPLE BECAUSE WE HAVE UNREALISTIC
  • 00:21:38.040 --> 00:21:41.270
  • EXPECTATIONS OF THEM, OR WE'RE EXPECTING THEM
  • 00:21:41.290 --> 00:21:45.190
  • TO DO THINGS THAT THEY DON'T EVEN KNOW WE'RE
  • 00:21:45.210 --> 00:21:47.180
  • EXPECTING THEM TO DO.
  • 00:21:47.200 --> 00:21:49.220
  • AND FOR EXAMPLE, HOW MANY MARRIAGES, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:21:49.240 --> 00:21:54.140
  • ARE JUST UNHAPPY BECAUSE WELL YOU SHOULD HAVE
  • 00:21:54.160 --> 00:21:58.040
  • KNOWN TO DO THAT.
  • 00:21:58.060 --> 00:21:59.150
  • - I THOUGHT YOU KNEW THAT.
  • 00:21:59.170 --> 00:22:00.230
  • - I THOUGHT YOU KNEW THAT.
  • 00:22:00.250 --> 00:22:01.260
  • HOW COULD YOU NOT KNOW TO DO THAT?
  • 00:22:01.280 --> 00:22:03.190
  • WELL, FIRST THING IS THERE'S A MALE AND A
  • 00:22:03.210 --> 00:22:05.130
  • FEMALE AND THEY DON'T KNOW ALL THAT MUCH ABOUT
  • 00:22:05.150 --> 00:22:07.130
  • EACH OTHER, AND I'VE TOLD DAVE, I SAID WHEN I TELL
  • 00:22:07.150 --> 00:22:12.030
  • YOU SOMETHING ABOUT MY HORMONES OR SOME OTHER
  • 00:22:12.050 --> 00:22:14.150
  • CRAZY THING, JUST DON'T SAY WHAT ARE YOU TALKING
  • 00:22:14.170 --> 00:22:18.120
  • ABOUT? TELL ME YOU UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:22:18.140 --> 00:22:21.070
  • I DON'T CARE IF YOU DO OR NOT,
  • 00:22:21.090 --> 00:22:22.190
  • TELL ME YOU UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:22:22.210 --> 00:22:24.030
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:22:24.050 --> 00:22:26.070
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:22:26.090 --> 00:22:28.090
  • - I LOVE THAT!
  • 00:22:28.110 --> 00:22:30.100
  • - BUT TO BE HONEST, FOR A LONG TIME,
  • 00:22:31.250 --> 00:22:34.110
  • AND THIS WAS VERY HELPFUL TO ME,
  • 00:22:34.130 --> 00:22:37.010
  • I EXPECTED DAVE TO KEEP ME HAPPY.
  • 00:22:37.030 --> 00:22:42.280
  • AND YOU KNOW, A LOT CHANGED IN OUR MARRIAGE
  • 00:22:43.000 --> 00:22:45.160
  • WHEN GOD TOLD ME STOP GIVING DAVE THE
  • 00:22:45.180 --> 00:22:48.190
  • RESPONSIBILITY OF MAKING YOU HAPPY AND YOU DECIDE
  • 00:22:48.210 --> 00:22:51.290
  • YOU'RE GONNA BE HAPPY.
  • 00:22:52.010 --> 00:22:54.030
  • - THAT'S A GREAT LINE JOYCE.
  • 00:22:54.050 --> 00:22:55.250
  • COULD YOU TALK TO ROBYN ABOUT THAT FOR ME?
  • 00:22:55.270 --> 00:22:58.090
  • I'M TEASING! I'M TEASING.
  • 00:22:58.110 --> 00:23:01.080
  • THAT'S A POWERFUL THOUGHT SERIOUSLY.
  • 00:23:01.100 --> 00:23:03.030
  • - THERE ARE REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS WE SHOULD HAVE,
  • 00:23:03.050 --> 00:23:04.280
  • BUT EXPECTING ANYONE, ANY JOB, ANY BOSS, ANY
  • 00:23:05.000 --> 00:23:09.190
  • CHURCH, ANY FRIEND TO BE PERFECT--EVERY PERSON YOU
  • 00:23:09.210 --> 00:23:15.140
  • GET IN RELATIONSHIP WITH, YOU MIGHT AS WELL LOOK AT
  • 00:23:15.160 --> 00:23:17.120
  • THEM AND SECRETLY THINK YOU ARE MESSED UP.
  • 00:23:17.140 --> 00:23:19.230
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:23:19.250 --> 00:23:21.270
  • BUT SO AM I.
  • 00:23:21.290 --> 00:23:23.260
  • SO WE'RE GONNA PROBABLY HAVE SOME MESSY TIMES,
  • 00:23:23.280 --> 00:23:26.220
  • BUT WE CAN WORK THROUGH THESE THINGS.
  • 00:23:26.240 --> 00:23:28.170
  • YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT I MEAN?
  • 00:23:28.190 --> 00:23:29.250
  • WHEN YOU HAVE UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS, YOU'RE
  • 00:23:29.270 --> 00:23:32.190
  • SETTING YOURSELF UP FOR FAILURE BECAUSE YOU'RE
  • 00:23:32.210 --> 00:23:35.210
  • EXPECTING SOMETHING THAT THERE'S NO WAY AND YOU
  • 00:23:35.230 --> 00:23:40.030
  • KNOW WOMEN AND I AM ONE AND I LOVE US WOMEN,
  • 00:23:40.050 --> 00:23:42.130
  • WE SOMETIMES THINK THAT MEN SHOULD BE ABLE
  • 00:23:42.150 --> 00:23:47.170
  • TO READ OUR MINDS.
  • 00:23:47.190 --> 00:23:49.080
  • IT'S LIKE WELL HOW COULD YOU NOT KNOW?
  • 00:23:49.100 --> 00:23:53.020
  • BECAUSE WE, WE'RE SENSITIVE AND WE KIND OF
  • 00:23:53.040 --> 00:23:56.210
  • PICK UP ON THINGS AND SO I MEAN I REMEMBER YEARS
  • 00:23:56.230 --> 00:24:00.180
  • AGO WHEN DAVE WOULD BE WATCHING FOOTBALL EVERY
  • 00:24:00.200 --> 00:24:03.030
  • SUNDAY AND I DIDN'T WANT HIM TO WATCH FOOTBALL,
  • 00:24:03.050 --> 00:24:05.150
  • I WANTED HIM TO PAY ATTENTION TO ME,
  • 00:24:05.170 --> 00:24:07.070
  • AND HE WASN'T PAYING ATTENTION TO ME,
  • 00:24:07.090 --> 00:24:08.270
  • SO I WOULD GET VERY LOUD.
  • 00:24:08.290 --> 00:24:11.030
  • I WOULD CLEAN HOUSE VERY LOUDLY.
  • 00:24:11.050 --> 00:24:14.240
  • LIKE SLAMMING DOORS, AND SLAMMING DRAWERS, AND
  • 00:24:14.260 --> 00:24:18.100
  • DRAGGING THE VACUUM BACK AND FORTH IN THE ROOM
  • 00:24:18.120 --> 00:24:20.220
  • WHERE HE WAS AT, JUST HOPING AGAINST HOPE THAT
  • 00:24:20.240 --> 00:24:26.280
  • HE WOULD NOTICE SOMETHING WAS WRONG
  • 00:24:27.000 --> 00:24:29.270
  • AND SAY WHAT'S WRONG?
  • 00:24:29.290 --> 00:24:31.180
  • AND I'LL NEVER FORGET WHEN I WALKED THROUGH THE
  • 00:24:31.200 --> 00:24:33.010
  • ROOM ONE DAY AND HE SAID HONEY, IF YOU'RE GOING TO
  • 00:24:33.030 --> 00:24:34.230
  • THE KITCHEN COULD YOU MAKE ME SOME ICED TEA?
  • 00:24:34.250 --> 00:24:36.130
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:24:36.150 --> 00:24:42.020
  • - UNFORTUNATELY JOYCE, I BELIEVE THAT I HAVE
  • 00:24:42.040 --> 00:24:45.230
  • STUDIED UNDER THE DAVID MEYER WAY OF--
  • 00:24:45.250 --> 00:24:48.050
  • LET'S BE HONEST.
  • 00:24:48.070 --> 00:24:50.230
  • - SO A LOT OF-- I THINK IT'S SOMETHING THAT'S
  • 00:24:50.250 --> 00:24:54.130
  • HELPED ME A LOT IS JUST LEARNING TO
  • 00:24:54.150 --> 00:24:56.210
  • BELIEVE THE BEST.
  • 00:24:56.230 --> 00:24:58.220
  • AND I HAVE TO REMIND MYSELF THAT ALMOST EVERY
  • 00:24:58.240 --> 00:25:00.210
  • DAY IF I START TO GET SUSPICIOUS OF SOMEBODY OR
  • 00:25:00.230 --> 00:25:03.140
  • START TO IMAGINE THAT THEY'RE DOING SOMETHING
  • 00:25:03.160 --> 00:25:06.120
  • ON PURPOSE, IT'S JUST BELIEVE THE BEST, BELIEVE
  • 00:25:06.140 --> 00:25:09.010
  • THE BEST. AND YOU KNOW WHAT, EVEN IF I
  • 00:25:09.030 --> 00:25:11.160
  • BELIEVE THE BEST AND YOU REALLY DID HAVE ILL
  • 00:25:11.180 --> 00:25:14.220
  • INTENTIONS, I'LL BE HAPPY IN MY BELIEVING THE BEST.
  • 00:25:14.240 --> 00:25:19.140
  • SO WE NEED TO--THE ONLY, THE ONLY PLACE THE BIBLE
  • 00:25:19.160 --> 00:25:24.180
  • TELLS US TO EXPECT ANYTHING IS TO EXPECT GOD.
  • 00:25:24.200 --> 00:25:27.130
  • - THAT'S GOOD.
  • 00:25:27.150 --> 00:25:28.240
  • - SO WE NEED TO PUT OUR EXPECTATIONS IN HIM AND
  • 00:25:28.260 --> 00:25:31.240
  • NOT EXPECTING OTHER PEOPLE TO DO ALL THESE
  • 00:25:31.260 --> 00:25:35.040
  • THINGS FOR US THAT--IF WE GO TO GOD, THEN GOD CAN
  • 00:25:35.060 --> 00:25:38.140
  • WORK THROUGH PEOPLE.
  • 00:25:38.160 --> 00:25:40.080
  • HE DOES WORK THROUGH PEOPLE.
  • 00:25:40.100 --> 00:25:42.000
  • BUT I MIGHT BE EXPECTING DAVE TO DO SOMETHING FOR
  • 00:25:42.020 --> 00:25:44.090
  • ME AND IT NEVER HAPPENS, BUT IF I GO TO GOD, HE
  • 00:25:44.110 --> 00:25:49.000
  • MAY NOT WORK THROUGH DAVE BUT HE'LL GET IT DONE.
  • 00:25:49.020 --> 00:25:52.140
  • SO WE NEED TO GO TO GOD AND STOP GETTING MAD AT
  • 00:25:52.160 --> 00:25:57.060
  • PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT--YOU DIDN'T MAKE ME
  • 00:25:57.080 --> 00:25:59.180
  • FEEL GOOD ABOUT MYSELF.
  • 00:25:59.200 --> 00:26:02.050
  • YOU KNOW I'M INSECURE, YOU NEED TO GIVE ME
  • 00:26:02.070 --> 00:26:04.160
  • THREE COMPLIMENTS EVERY DAY OTHERWISE
  • 00:26:04.180 --> 00:26:06.060
  • I'M GONNA FALL APART. [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:26:06.080 --> 00:26:09.020
  • YOU KNOW, SOMETIMES GOD DOESN'T GIVE US WHAT WE
  • 00:26:09.040 --> 00:26:10.270
  • THINK WE WANT BECAUSE WE'LL NEVER GROW UP
  • 00:26:10.290 --> 00:26:12.170
  • IF HE KEEPS DOING THAT.
  • 00:26:12.190 --> 00:26:14.270
  • - WE'RE TALKING TO JOYCE MEYER CONCERNING HER
  • 00:26:14.290 --> 00:26:20.120
  • BRAND-NEW BOOK, 20 WAYS TO MAKE EVERY DAY BETTER.
  • 00:26:20.140 --> 00:26:24.090
  • AND I DON'T THINK WE'RE GONNA GET THROUGH ALL 20
  • 00:26:24.110 --> 00:26:26.120
  • WAYS, BUT I'M GONNA TELL YOU SOMETHING, IT'S LIKE
  • 00:26:26.140 --> 00:26:28.260
  • SHE SAID EARLIER, I REALLY THINK YOU SHOULD
  • 00:26:28.280 --> 00:26:31.010
  • GET THE BOOK, LITERALLY YOU COULD OPEN RANDOMLY
  • 00:26:31.030 --> 00:26:34.250
  • THIS BOOK TO JUST ABOUT ANY PAGE, CERTAINLY ANY
  • 00:26:34.270 --> 00:26:37.090
  • CHAPTER ON ANY GIVEN DAY, AND IT WOULD HELP YOU TO
  • 00:26:37.110 --> 00:26:40.270
  • MAKE A BETTER DAY OUT OF THAT DAY.
  • 00:26:40.290 --> 00:26:43.060
  • ONE OF THE THOUGHTS THAT YOU HAD THAT I WAS VERY
  • 00:26:43.080 --> 00:26:47.120
  • IMPRESSED WITH IS DON'T GIVE IN TO DREAD.
  • 00:26:47.140 --> 00:26:50.290
  • WHAT IS DREAD?
  • 00:26:51.010 --> 00:26:52.270
  • YOU START THE CHAPTER WITH PREVENTATIVE
  • 00:26:52.290 --> 00:26:54.200
  • MAINTENANCE REALLY IS WHAT YOU'RE TALKING
  • 00:26:54.220 --> 00:26:56.110
  • ABOUT, BUT I WAS VERY IMPRESSED WITH IT.
  • 00:26:56.130 --> 00:26:58.030
  • EXPLAIN THAT.
  • 00:26:58.050 --> 00:27:00.090
  • - WELL DREAD IS A VERY CLOSE RELATIVE TO FEAR.
  • 00:27:00.110 --> 00:27:04.050
  • ACTUALLY, THERE'S A SCRIPTURE AT LEAST IN THE
  • 00:27:04.070 --> 00:27:07.280
  • AMPLIFIED PUTS IT SOMETHING LIKE THIS.
  • 00:27:08.000 --> 00:27:10.230
  • GREAT FEAR IS TO DREAD A DREAD.
  • 00:27:10.250 --> 00:27:14.080
  • SO HAVE YOU EVER DREADED DOING SOMETHING SO MUCH
  • 00:27:14.100 --> 00:27:20.060
  • THAT YOU ACTUALLY GOT TO THE POINT WHERE YOU
  • 00:27:20.080 --> 00:27:22.040
  • DREADED EVEN THINKING ABOUT IT BECAUSE YOU KNEW
  • 00:27:22.060 --> 00:27:23.240
  • YOU WERE GONNA DREAD DOING IT AND YOU DIDN'T
  • 00:27:23.260 --> 00:27:25.190
  • WANT TO DO THAT.
  • 00:27:25.210 --> 00:27:27.170
  • SO DREAD IS JUST SOMETHING THAT IS LIKE
  • 00:27:27.190 --> 00:27:32.090
  • OH, I DREAD THAT DRIVE HOME.
  • 00:27:32.110 --> 00:27:34.030
  • I DREAD THE TRAFFIC.
  • 00:27:34.050 --> 00:27:36.070
  • - AND PART OF IT JUST TALKING ABOUT IT.
  • 00:27:36.090 --> 00:27:38.020
  • KEEPING IT GOING.
  • 00:27:38.040 --> 00:27:39.180
  • - DREADING IT.
  • 00:27:39.200 --> 00:27:40.240
  • AND AS YOU KNOW, I TEACH A LOT ON THE MIND
  • 00:27:40.260 --> 00:27:42.230
  • AND IT'S AMAZING HOW MUCH OUR MIND AFFECTS
  • 00:27:42.250 --> 00:27:45.070
  • EVERY DAY OF OUR LIFE.
  • 00:27:45.090 --> 00:27:47.160
  • SO RECENTLY I HAD A MEDICAL TEST COMING UP
  • 00:27:47.180 --> 00:27:49.250
  • THAT I NEEDED TO TAKE, IT WAS ONE OF THOSE RATHER
  • 00:27:49.270 --> 00:27:51.270
  • UNPLEASANT MEDICAL TESTS, WE WON'T GET INTO
  • 00:27:51.290 --> 00:27:53.280
  • DETAILS, BUT IT'S ONE OF THOSE TESTS YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:27:54.000 --> 00:27:59.080
  • PREPARE FOR THE DAY BEFORE, AND THE PREPARING
  • 00:27:59.100 --> 00:28:02.100
  • FOR IS-- SO PROBABLY NOW EVERYBODY KNOWS WHAT
  • 00:28:02.120 --> 00:28:04.260
  • KIND OF TEST IT WAS.
  • 00:28:04.280 --> 00:28:06.070
  • - I DON'T THINK SO.
  • 00:28:06.090 --> 00:28:07.140
  • - NO, NOBODY KNOWS.
  • 00:28:07.160 --> 00:28:08.290
  • BUT MAN, YOU JUST, HOW MANY TIMES IN THE MONTH
  • 00:28:09.010 --> 00:28:13.220
  • BEFORE THAT TEST DID I HAVE TO CHOOSE I AM
  • 00:28:13.240 --> 00:28:17.120
  • NOT GONNA DREAD THAT.
  • 00:28:17.140 --> 00:28:19.030
  • I AM NOT EVEN GONNA THINK ABOUT IT UNTIL THE DAY I
  • 00:28:19.050 --> 00:28:21.100
  • HAVE TO DO IT BECAUSE GOD WILL GIVE US THE GRACE
  • 00:28:21.120 --> 00:28:25.040
  • WE NEED WHEN THE DAY COMES TO DO IT.
  • 00:28:25.060 --> 00:28:28.220
  • BUT IF WE'VE DREADED IT FOR A MONTH AHEAD OF
  • 00:28:28.240 --> 00:28:31.120
  • TIME, WHEN THE GRACE SHOWS UP WE MAY
  • 00:28:31.140 --> 00:28:34.190
  • NOT EVEN RECOGNIZE IT.
  • 00:28:34.210 --> 00:28:35.280
  • I HEARD A STORY A LONG TIME AGO THAT I REALLY
  • 00:28:36.000 --> 00:28:37.280
  • LIKED, IT SAID THAT AN OLDER MAN WAS IN A PRISON
  • 00:28:38.000 --> 00:28:41.160
  • CELL WITH A YOUNG BOY.
  • 00:28:41.180 --> 00:28:43.120
  • AND THEY WERE BOTH GONNA BE BURNED AT THE STAKE
  • 00:28:43.140 --> 00:28:45.120
  • THE NEXT DAY.
  • 00:28:45.140 --> 00:28:46.260
  • AND THE OLDER MAN WAS JUST AS CALM AS HE COULD
  • 00:28:46.280 --> 00:28:49.200
  • BE, AND THE YOUNG MAN WAS JUST IN A TIZZY.
  • 00:28:49.220 --> 00:28:52.050
  • HE WAS JUST AFRAID AND DREADING AND
  • 00:28:52.070 --> 00:28:54.250
  • SCARED AND CRYING.
  • 00:28:54.270 --> 00:28:57.000
  • HE SAID TO THE OLD MAN, HOW CAN YOU BE SO CALM?
  • 00:28:57.020 --> 00:29:00.040
  • HOW CAN YOU BE SO CALM? DON'T YOU--
  • 00:29:00.060 --> 00:29:02.100
  • I CAN'T DO THIS.
  • 00:29:02.120 --> 00:29:04.110
  • I CAN'T DO WHAT THEY'RE GONNA DO TOMORROW.
  • 00:29:04.130 --> 00:29:06.130
  • I CAN'T STAND IT.
  • 00:29:06.150 --> 00:29:07.230
  • AND HE SAID SON, YOU'RE LOOKING AT IT RIGHT NOW
  • 00:29:07.250 --> 00:29:11.140
  • WITHOUT GRACE BECAUSE THE GRACE HASN'T BEEN
  • 00:29:11.160 --> 00:29:13.160
  • GIVEN TO YOU YET.
  • 00:29:13.180 --> 00:29:15.290
  • BUT WHEN TOMORROW COMES AND IT'S TIME TO GO OUT
  • 00:29:16.010 --> 00:29:17.280
  • THERE, GOD WILL SHOW UP AND YOU'LL HAVE
  • 00:29:18.000 --> 00:29:20.010
  • THE GRACE YOU NEED.
  • 00:29:20.030 --> 00:29:22.030
  • SEE, GOD WANTS US TO LIVE EVERY DAY NOT DREADING
  • 00:29:22.050 --> 00:29:25.030
  • WHAT WE HAVE TO DO TOMORROW BUT BELIEVING
  • 00:29:25.050 --> 00:29:30.010
  • THAT EVEN THOUGH I DON'T FEEL TODAY THAT I CAN DO
  • 00:29:30.030 --> 00:29:33.010
  • IT, THAT HE'S FAITHFUL AND WHEN THE TIME COMES
  • 00:29:33.030 --> 00:29:37.060
  • HE'LL GIVE ME WHAT I NEED TO BE ABLE TO DO WHAT
  • 00:29:37.080 --> 00:29:39.270
  • NEEDS TO BE DONE. ISN'T THAT GOOD?
  • 00:29:39.290 --> 00:29:42.030
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:29:42.050 --> 00:29:50.230
  • - THE BOOK IS BROKEN INTO DIFFERENT SECTIONS
  • 00:29:50.250 --> 00:29:54.020
  • AND THEN THERE'S CHAPTERS WITHIN THE SECTIONS,
  • 00:29:54.040 --> 00:29:55.220
  • AND ONE OF THEM IS NEW STEPS TO TAKE.
  • 00:29:55.240 --> 00:30:01.020
  • AND YOU TALK ABOUT LEARNING SOMETHING NEW.
  • 00:30:01.040 --> 00:30:05.230
  • IN FACT EVERY DAY ACTUALLY LEARNING SOMETHING NEW.
  • 00:30:05.250 --> 00:30:08.090
  • THAT HELPED ME, JOYCE.
  • 00:30:08.110 --> 00:30:10.070
  • I REALLY BELIEVE THAT ROBYN IS INTO THIS
  • 00:30:10.090 --> 00:30:13.200
  • STUDY OF THE BRAIN.
  • 00:30:13.220 --> 00:30:15.090
  • AND SHE'S ALWAYS TALKING TO YOU, I KNOW IT WEARS
  • 00:30:15.110 --> 00:30:18.140
  • YOU OUT, BUT THE POINT IS SHE'S LEARNED AND IT'S
  • 00:30:18.160 --> 00:30:22.000
  • TRUE THAT THAT'S ONE OF THE THINGS THAT FIGHTS
  • 00:30:22.020 --> 00:30:26.270
  • ALZHEIMER'S, DEMENTIA, THAT IF WE OPEN UP NEW
  • 00:30:26.290 --> 00:30:30.000
  • BRAIN PATHS, AND I DON'T KNOW IF YOU WERE SAYING
  • 00:30:30.020 --> 00:30:33.080
  • THOSE WORDS BUT THE POINT IS LEARNING
  • 00:30:33.100 --> 00:30:35.090
  • SOMETHING NEW JUST--
  • 00:30:35.110 --> 00:30:36.220
  • - KEEP YOUR MIND ACTIVE. KEEP YOUR MIND ACTIVE.
  • 00:30:36.240 --> 00:30:40.100
  • IT'S LIKE MY MOM AND MY DAD AND MY AUNT WHO HAD
  • 00:30:40.120 --> 00:30:44.020
  • NO CHILDREN SO WE HAD THE RESPONSIBILITY OF TAKING
  • 00:30:44.040 --> 00:30:47.210
  • CARE OF HER TOO, THEY ALL ENDED UP IN ASSISTED
  • 00:30:47.230 --> 00:30:52.010
  • LIVING CARE AND THEN EVENTUALLY IN
  • 00:30:52.030 --> 00:30:54.120
  • NURSING HOME CARE.
  • 00:30:54.140 --> 00:30:56.050
  • AND I WATCHED MY AUNT ESPECIALLY WHO WAS A VERY
  • 00:30:56.070 --> 00:30:59.180
  • ACTIVE WOMAN PLAYED ALL KINDS OF GAMES, DID ALL
  • 00:30:59.200 --> 00:31:04.230
  • KINDS OF THINGS, I WATCHED HER DETERIORATE
  • 00:31:04.250 --> 00:31:09.240
  • UNTIL SHE JUST WOULD SIT IN A WHEELCHAIR SLUMPED
  • 00:31:09.260 --> 00:31:13.110
  • OVER, AND REALLY EVEN GOING TO SEE HER, SHE HAD
  • 00:31:13.130 --> 00:31:20.020
  • NOTHING TO TALK ABOUT ANYMORE BECAUSE SHE
  • 00:31:20.040 --> 00:31:21.090
  • WASN'T DOING ANYTHING.
  • 00:31:21.110 --> 00:31:22.190
  • AND IT WASN'T ALL JUST BECAUSE SHE WAS GETTING
  • 00:31:22.210 --> 00:31:24.260
  • OLDER. HER MIND WAS NO LONGER ACTIVE.
  • 00:31:24.280 --> 00:31:28.070
  • SHE WASN'T DOING ANYTHING WITH HER MIND.
  • 00:31:28.090 --> 00:31:31.210
  • SO I THINK THAT PART OF THE REASON WHY PEOPLE
  • 00:31:31.230 --> 00:31:34.170
  • HAVE BAD DAYS IS BECAUSE WE CAN JUST
  • 00:31:34.190 --> 00:31:37.280
  • LET LIFE GET BORING.
  • 00:31:38.000 --> 00:31:40.080
  • AND I FIND FOR ME IF I DO THE SAME THING TOO MANY
  • 00:31:40.100 --> 00:31:42.200
  • DAYS IN A ROW, LIKE OBVIOUSLY TO WRITE BOOKS
  • 00:31:42.220 --> 00:31:45.290
  • ESPECIALLY AS MANY AS I WRITE, YOU GOT TO WORK AT
  • 00:31:46.010 --> 00:31:49.180
  • IT. AND SO I'LL SPEND DAYS WRITING.
  • 00:31:49.200 --> 00:31:54.130
  • BUT LIKE JUST THIS WEEK I TOLD DAVE, I SAID WELL I
  • 00:31:54.150 --> 00:31:57.200
  • WROTE ALL DAY YESTERDAY AND I WROTE ALL DAY THE
  • 00:31:57.220 --> 00:32:00.020
  • TWO DAYS BEFORE, SO I NEED TO GET OUT OF HERE
  • 00:32:00.040 --> 00:32:03.270
  • TODAY AND GO DO SOMETHING ELSE.
  • 00:32:03.290 --> 00:32:05.190
  • YOU HAVE TO GIVE YOURSELF BREAKS.
  • 00:32:05.210 --> 00:32:10.060
  • YOU HAVE TO INVEST IN YOURSELF.
  • 00:32:10.080 --> 00:32:11.270
  • AND YESTERDAY I WAS WORKING A LOT AND I
  • 00:32:11.290 --> 00:32:14.100
  • DECIDED I'M GONNA TAKE A BREAK AND GO OUT AND
  • 00:32:14.120 --> 00:32:15.260
  • GET A CUP OF COFFEE.
  • 00:32:15.280 --> 00:32:17.170
  • SOMETIMES JUST GETTING OUT AND DOING
  • 00:32:17.190 --> 00:32:19.230
  • SOMETHING NEW, SEEING SOMETHING NEW.
  • 00:32:19.250 --> 00:32:21.270
  • SOMETHING THAT I ENJOY DOING IS
  • 00:32:21.290 --> 00:32:23.180
  • WATCHING DOCUMENTARIES.
  • 00:32:23.200 --> 00:32:25.280
  • JUST LEARNING ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:32:26.000 --> 00:32:28.020
  • IT'S SO FASCINATING TO LEARN ABOUT THE THINGS
  • 00:32:28.040 --> 00:32:31.140
  • THAT PEOPLE HAVE DONE OR TO LEARN ABOUT THINGS
  • 00:32:31.160 --> 00:32:34.020
  • THAT YOU DON'T KNOW.
  • 00:32:34.040 --> 00:32:36.060
  • AND I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE TO WATCH
  • 00:32:36.080 --> 00:32:40.060
  • DOCUMENTARIES OR THINGS ABOUT THE ANIMAL KINGDOM.
  • 00:32:40.080 --> 00:32:45.180
  • I MEAN IT JUST MAKES ME-- I JUST SIT AND GO GOD,
  • 00:32:45.200 --> 00:32:48.140
  • YOU ARE SO AMAZING!
  • 00:32:48.160 --> 00:32:50.290
  • HOW HE HAS MADE EVERYTHING WORK TOGETHER.
  • 00:32:51.010 --> 00:32:54.080
  • SO I THINK JUST IMPROVE YOURSELF EVERY DAY.
  • 00:32:54.100 --> 00:32:57.180
  • LEARN SOMETHING.
  • 00:32:57.200 --> 00:32:59.070
  • - YOU'RE WRITING ABOUT WHAT YOU'RE LIVING, YOU KNOW
  • 00:32:59.090 --> 00:33:03.270
  • WHAT I'M SAYING?
  • 00:33:03.290 --> 00:33:05.250
  • AS MY WIFE AND I KNOW YOU FOLKS, WHENEVER WE SIT
  • 00:33:05.270 --> 00:33:09.170
  • DOWN WITH YOU, IT'S FRESH NEW STUFF.
  • 00:33:09.190 --> 00:33:12.090
  • AND THE POINT IS HOW DO YOU WRITE THESE MANY
  • 00:33:12.110 --> 00:33:16.020
  • BOOKS OVER 40 YEARS?
  • 00:33:16.040 --> 00:33:17.240
  • YOU CAN'T BE HASHING OUT THE SAME OLD CORN.
  • 00:33:17.260 --> 00:33:21.120
  • IF YOU'RE NOT LEARNING SOMETHING LIKE YOU'RE
  • 00:33:21.140 --> 00:33:23.130
  • TELLING US TO LEARN SOMETHING, THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:33:23.150 --> 00:33:25.130
  • YOU'RE DOING, AND NOW WE WANT TO READ THE
  • 00:33:25.150 --> 00:33:27.210
  • FRESHNESS OF WHAT YOU HAVE TO-- 20 WAYS TO MAKE
  • 00:33:27.230 --> 00:33:31.120
  • EVERY DAY BETTER IS THE TITLE OF THE BOOK.
  • 00:33:31.140 --> 00:33:35.180
  • I'M TELLING YOU, FRIENDS, IF YOU WILL PUT THESE
  • 00:33:35.200 --> 00:33:39.070
  • PRINCIPLES INTO PRACTICE, YOUR BRAIN'S GONNA COME
  • 00:33:39.090 --> 00:33:43.040
  • ALIVE IN A NEW FASHION AND SO IS YOUR WHOLE BODY.
  • 00:33:43.060 --> 00:33:45.260
  • I DO WANT TO TELL A SECRET.
  • 00:33:45.280 --> 00:33:47.190
  • I DON'T KNOW IF JOYCE HAS TOLD.
  • 00:33:47.210 --> 00:33:49.110
  • SHE DOES WALK FIVE MILES EVERY MORNING, OKAY?
  • 00:33:49.130 --> 00:33:53.270
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:33:53.290 --> 00:33:58.090
  • SHE'S NOT PREACHING THINGS THAT SHE ISN'T
  • 00:33:58.110 --> 00:34:01.080
  • LIVING. I THINK THAT'S--
  • 00:34:01.100 --> 00:34:03.150
  • - LAST YEAR I WALKED 1600 MILES.
  • 00:34:03.170 --> 00:34:06.190
  • 1600 MILES.
  • 00:34:06.210 --> 00:34:08.030
  • - 1600 MILES. MY LORD!
  • 00:34:08.050 --> 00:34:11.010
  • I COULD BE TO LONDON BY-- NO, NO, NO.
  • 00:34:11.030 --> 00:34:14.000
  • I NEED TO STUDY MORE.
  • 00:34:14.020 --> 00:34:15.260
  • YOU TALK IN ONE OF THE CHAPTERS ON
  • 00:34:15.280 --> 00:34:17.250
  • INVESTING IN YOURSELF.
  • 00:34:17.270 --> 00:34:21.100
  • NOW THIS IS UNIQUE BECAUSE WE'RE TALKING
  • 00:34:21.120 --> 00:34:23.090
  • ABOUT GETTING OFF OF OUR SELF AND ONTO OTHERS.
  • 00:34:23.110 --> 00:34:25.290
  • NOW YOU'RE BRINGING IT BACK HERE, AND THAT'S
  • 00:34:26.010 --> 00:34:27.280
  • KIND OF WHAT I JUST SAID, YOU'RE SPENDING TIME.
  • 00:34:28.000 --> 00:34:30.150
  • - WELL, IF YOU DON'T TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF,
  • 00:34:30.170 --> 00:34:33.090
  • YOU WILL HAVE NOTHING TO GIVE TO SOMEBODY ELSE.
  • 00:34:33.110 --> 00:34:36.050
  • AND SO I'M NOT-- [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:34:36.070 --> 00:34:42.260
  • I'M GONNA SAY SOMETHING, AND I'M NOT SAYING IT TO
  • 00:34:42.280 --> 00:34:47.010
  • FOR ANYBODY THAT'S SICK OR DOESN'T FEEL GOOD TO
  • 00:34:47.030 --> 00:34:49.000
  • FEEL BAD, BUT AS AN ENCOURAGEMENT, I DON'T
  • 00:34:49.020 --> 00:34:51.180
  • THINK THERE'S ANYTHING WORSE THAN FEELING
  • 00:34:51.200 --> 00:34:53.090
  • BAD ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:34:53.110 --> 00:34:55.140
  • I THINK IT'S JUST FEELING TIRED ALL THE TIME, YOUR
  • 00:34:55.160 --> 00:34:58.210
  • BRAIN DOESN'T WANT TO WORK, YOU DON'T WANT TO
  • 00:34:58.230 --> 00:35:00.230
  • PRAY, YOU DON'T WANT TO DO ANYTHING FOR ANYBODY,
  • 00:35:00.250 --> 00:35:03.190
  • YOU DON'T WANT TO DO ANYTHING FOR YOURSELF,
  • 00:35:03.210 --> 00:35:05.240
  • AND I MEAN THERE ARE THINGS WE CAN'T DO
  • 00:35:05.260 --> 00:35:07.220
  • ANYTHING ABOUT, BUT THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT WE
  • 00:35:07.240 --> 00:35:10.080
  • CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT.
  • 00:35:10.100 --> 00:35:12.240
  • AND SO I'VE STILL GOT A LOT LEFT TO DO IN THE
  • 00:35:12.260 --> 00:35:16.010
  • EARTH, AND MY AMOUNT OF TIME TO DO IT IS
  • 00:35:16.030 --> 00:35:20.030
  • OBVIOUSLY GETTING SHORTER BECAUSE WE ALL
  • 00:35:20.050 --> 00:35:22.010
  • AGE EVERY DAY.
  • 00:35:22.030 --> 00:35:24.200
  • AND I REALLY WANT TO TAKE CARE OF MYSELF.
  • 00:35:24.220 --> 00:35:28.120
  • SO LIKE THIS WALKING THING FOR EXAMPLE,
  • 00:35:28.140 --> 00:35:30.160
  • I'M NOT SAYING EVERYBODY NEEDS TO WALK
  • 00:35:30.180 --> 00:35:32.020
  • FIVE MILES A DAY.
  • 00:35:32.040 --> 00:35:33.160
  • I SAW A LITTLE CUTE THING THAT SAID I NAMED MY DOG
  • 00:35:33.180 --> 00:35:35.140
  • FIVE MILE SO I COULD TELL EVERYBODY I WALKED
  • 00:35:35.160 --> 00:35:37.040
  • FIVE MILES A DAY.
  • 00:35:37.060 --> 00:35:38.230
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:35:38.250 --> 00:35:43.170
  • MY HUSBAND HAS WORKED OUT AND EXERCISED FOR
  • 00:35:43.190 --> 00:35:46.050
  • 55 YEARS. 55 YEARS.
  • 00:35:46.070 --> 00:35:50.040
  • AND SO HE TRIED FOR YEARS TO GET ME TO EXERCISE,
  • 00:35:50.060 --> 00:35:53.270
  • AND IT'S LIKE I KNOW I SHOULD BUT I DIDN'T,
  • 00:35:53.290 --> 00:35:57.160
  • I DON'T HAVE TIME.
  • 00:35:57.180 --> 00:35:59.030
  • I DON'T HAVE TIME. I'M TOO BUSY.
  • 00:35:59.050 --> 00:36:00.230
  • TOO BUSY WORKING FOR GOD. I DON'T HAVE TIME.
  • 00:36:00.250 --> 00:36:04.050
  • BUT SEE, EVEN JUST TAKING THAT TIME THAT I TAKE TO
  • 00:36:04.070 --> 00:36:07.050
  • WALK EVERY MORNING, I'M INVESTING IN MYSELF,
  • 00:36:07.070 --> 00:36:11.060
  • I'M INVESTING IN MY HEALTH, I'M INVESTING
  • 00:36:11.080 --> 00:36:12.210
  • IN MY FUTURE LONGEVITY.
  • 00:36:12.230 --> 00:36:16.010
  • AND SO WE HAVE TO TAKE TIME TO SLEEP, WE NEED TO
  • 00:36:16.030 --> 00:36:21.130
  • TAKE TIME TO LAUGH, TO ENJOY OURSELVES, TO DO
  • 00:36:21.150 --> 00:36:24.110
  • SOME THINGS THAT ARE FUN.
  • 00:36:24.130 --> 00:36:27.110
  • WE ALSO NEED TO TAKE TIME TO DO THINGS
  • 00:36:27.130 --> 00:36:29.050
  • FOR OTHER PEOPLE.
  • 00:36:29.070 --> 00:36:30.200
  • BUT YOU KNOW REALLY AN UNBALANCED LIFE IS ALWAYS
  • 00:36:30.220 --> 00:36:32.240
  • GONNA BE A MISERABLE LIFE.
  • 00:36:32.260 --> 00:36:34.200
  • SO INVESTING IN YOURSELF, AND I DON'T LIKE IT AT
  • 00:36:34.220 --> 00:36:37.120
  • ALL WHEN I HEAR PEOPLE SAY WELL, YOU KNOW I JUST
  • 00:36:37.140 --> 00:36:40.240
  • DON'T NEED THAT. I JUST DON'T NEED THAT.
  • 00:36:40.260 --> 00:36:44.030
  • SOMETIMES THAT FALSE HUMILITY GETS A LITTLE
  • 00:36:44.050 --> 00:36:46.060
  • BIT NAUSEATING.
  • 00:36:46.080 --> 00:36:47.270
  • IT'S LIKE YOU DO NEED THAT.
  • 00:36:47.290 --> 00:36:49.180
  • YOU DO NEED TO DO SOME THINGS FOR YOURSELF OR
  • 00:36:49.200 --> 00:36:53.160
  • THIS I CAN DO WITHOUT, I CAN DO WITHOUT.
  • 00:36:53.180 --> 00:36:55.220
  • WELL, WHAT IF GOD DOESN'T WANT YOU TO DO WITHOUT?
  • 00:36:55.240 --> 00:36:58.110
  • WHAT IF HE WANTS YOU TO TAKE THE TIME TO DO
  • 00:36:58.130 --> 00:37:00.070
  • SOMETHING FOR YOURSELF?
  • 00:37:00.090 --> 00:37:01.290
  • DAVE HAS A THING THAT HE SAYS ABOUT MONEY
  • 00:37:02.010 --> 00:37:03.240
  • AND I LOVE THIS.
  • 00:37:03.260 --> 00:37:05.000
  • HE SAYS SAVE SOME, GIVE SOME, SPEND SOME.
  • 00:37:05.020 --> 00:37:08.190
  • ALWAYS SAVE SOME, ALWAYS GIVE SOME,
  • 00:37:08.210 --> 00:37:10.210
  • ALWAYS SPEND SOME.
  • 00:37:10.230 --> 00:37:12.140
  • SO YOU HAVE THE PEOPLE THAT WANT TO SPEND IT
  • 00:37:12.160 --> 00:37:14.070
  • ALL AND SAVE NONE.
  • 00:37:14.090 --> 00:37:16.160
  • AND THEN YOU HAVE THE TIGHT WADS WHO WANT TO
  • 00:37:16.180 --> 00:37:18.050
  • SAVE IT ALL AND SPEND NONE.
  • 00:37:18.070 --> 00:37:20.000
  • THEN YOU HAVE SOME WHO DON'T WANT TO GIVE AWAY
  • 00:37:20.020 --> 00:37:22.160
  • ANYTHING AND SO WE REALLY NEED TO HAVE BALANCE IN
  • 00:37:22.180 --> 00:37:25.180
  • EVERY AREA OF OUR LIFE.
  • 00:37:25.200 --> 00:37:27.090
  • SO WHEN I SAY INVEST IN YOURSELF, A I'M CERTAINLY
  • 00:37:27.110 --> 00:37:29.100
  • NOT TALKING ABOUT BEING SELFISH AND SELF-CENTERED.
  • 00:37:29.120 --> 00:37:31.250
  • WE ALREADY TALKED ABOUT NOT DOING THAT.
  • 00:37:31.270 --> 00:37:34.090
  • BUT EVEN LIKE TAKING A FIFTEEN MINUTE BREAK AND
  • 00:37:34.110 --> 00:37:38.000
  • GOING OUTSIDE AND SMELLING THE ROSES OR WHATEVER.
  • 00:37:38.020 --> 00:37:41.160
  • YOU'RE NOT IN SIN, YOU'RE NOT BEING SELFISH WHEN
  • 00:37:41.180 --> 00:37:45.120
  • YOU TAKE TIME TO DO SOMETHING FOR YOURSELF.
  • 00:37:45.140 --> 00:37:48.250
  • - SO GOOD!
  • 00:37:48.270 --> 00:37:50.270
  • TELL US ABOUT THE ADVENTURES, JOYCE.
  • 00:37:50.290 --> 00:37:55.090
  • - WELL, I THINK--
  • 00:37:55.110 --> 00:37:57.030
  • - THAT'S ONE OF THE 20. DO SOMETHING ADVENTUROUS.
  • 00:37:57.050 --> 00:38:01.270
  • - YOU KNOW WE CAN ALL GET IN A RUT OF JUST
  • 00:38:01.290 --> 00:38:03.210
  • DOING THE SAME THING AND ESPECIALLY DOING WHAT'S
  • 00:38:03.230 --> 00:38:06.010
  • SAFE. JUST WANT TO DO WHAT'S SAFE.
  • 00:38:06.030 --> 00:38:10.130
  • AND YOU KNOW LIKE DAVE AND I EAT OUT A LOT OUT
  • 00:38:10.150 --> 00:38:12.260
  • OF NECESSITY BECAUSE OF WHAT WE DO AND BECAUSE IT'S
  • 00:38:12.280 --> 00:38:15.050
  • BEEN SO LONG SINCE I'VE COOKED, NOBODY WOULD
  • 00:38:15.070 --> 00:38:17.050
  • REALLY WANT TO TRY IT IF I DID NOW.
  • 00:38:17.070 --> 00:38:19.090
  • - THAT'D BE LIKE AN ADVENTUROUS THING?
  • 00:38:19.110 --> 00:38:22.010
  • - I USED TO COOK A LOT BUT I DON'T ANYMORE.
  • 00:38:22.030 --> 00:38:26.030
  • AND DAVE, WHEN WE GO OUT TO EAT, HE'LL TRY
  • 00:38:26.050 --> 00:38:27.230
  • THE CRAZIEST STUFF.
  • 00:38:27.250 --> 00:38:31.190
  • AND I'M LIKE WHAT IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT?
  • 00:38:31.210 --> 00:38:34.240
  • WELL, MAYBE I'LL LOVE IT. YOU KNOW?
  • 00:38:34.260 --> 00:38:37.130
  • SO I'M NOT AS ADVENTUROUS AS HE IS
  • 00:38:37.150 --> 00:38:39.240
  • WHEN IT COMES TO EATING. BUT I AM BOLD
  • 00:38:39.260 --> 00:38:43.050
  • AND ADVENTUROUS IN A LOT OF THINGS.
  • 00:38:43.070 --> 00:38:45.280
  • - TELL US ONE THING THAT YOU DID THAT IS
  • 00:38:46.000 --> 00:38:48.280
  • JUST CRAZY. JUST ADVENTUROUS CRAZY.
  • 00:38:49.000 --> 00:38:53.120
  • INQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW, JOYCE.
  • 00:38:53.140 --> 00:38:56.090
  • - ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:38:57.080 --> 00:38:58.220
  • GOING TO INDIA TO HOLD A MASSIVE CRUSADE, LAYING
  • 00:38:58.240 --> 00:39:04.060
  • OUT ALL THE MONEY AHEAD OF TIME, NOT HAVING ANY
  • 00:39:04.080 --> 00:39:07.280
  • CLUE IF ANYBODY WOULD SHOW UP OR NOT,
  • 00:39:08.000 --> 00:39:10.240
  • NEVER HAVING SPOKE THROUGH AN INTERPRETER.
  • 00:39:10.260 --> 00:39:15.080
  • ARE THE PEOPLE GONNA ACCEPT A WOMAN.
  • 00:39:15.100 --> 00:39:17.200
  • IS ANYBODY GONNA COME?
  • 00:39:17.220 --> 00:39:21.010
  • GET UP ON THE STAGE AND GOD IS GOOD,
  • 00:39:21.030 --> 00:39:26.140
  • ALMOST 500.000 PEOPLE IN THE FIELD.
  • 00:39:26.160 --> 00:39:29.060
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:39:29.080 --> 00:39:33.030
  • - YOUR HEART'S POUNDING?
  • 00:39:33.050 --> 00:39:35.270
  • - I MEAN YOU'RE SO-- FEAR CAN BE HEALTHY IF IT
  • 00:39:35.290 --> 00:39:42.100
  • DOESN'T HOLD YOU BACK.
  • 00:39:42.120 --> 00:39:44.190
  • BECAUSE REALLY WHEN THE BIBLE SAYS FEAR NOT, IT
  • 00:39:44.210 --> 00:39:47.190
  • ACTUALLY DOESN'T MEAN NOT TO FEEL FEAR, IT MEANS
  • 00:39:47.210 --> 00:39:50.210
  • NOT TO LET FEAR STOP YOU.
  • 00:39:50.230 --> 00:39:53.100
  • AND SO YOU'RE NEVER GOING TO DO ANYTHING THAT'S
  • 00:39:53.120 --> 00:39:56.090
  • ADVENTUROUS OR OUT OF THE ORDINARY IF YOU ALWAYS WAIT
  • 00:39:56.110 --> 00:40:01.170
  • TO NOT FEEL ANY FEAR.
  • 00:40:01.190 --> 00:40:03.120
  • IN ORDER TO SUCCEED, YOU HAVE TO TAKE A CHANCE ON
  • 00:40:03.140 --> 00:40:06.050
  • FAILING, AND SO PEOPLE WILL ASK ME TODAY, WHAT'S ONE OF
  • 00:40:06.070 --> 00:40:10.120
  • THE GREATEST THINGS THAT YOU'VE EVER GOTTEN TO DO IN
  • 00:40:10.140 --> 00:40:12.210
  • MINISTRY, AND I CAN PROBABLY SAY THAT WAS ONE OF THEM.
  • 00:40:12.230 --> 00:40:15.000
  • I MEAN, TO SEE THAT MANY PEOPLE AND TO KNOW THAT I'D
  • 00:40:15.020 --> 00:40:18.160
  • NEVER BEEN THERE, THEY DIDN'T KNOW ME, BUT THEY
  • 00:40:18.180 --> 00:40:20.190
  • WATCH THE TELEVISION.
  • 00:40:20.210 --> 00:40:22.100
  • AND SO WHAT A GREAT OPPORTUNITY THAT IS TO BE
  • 00:40:22.120 --> 00:40:25.150
  • ABLE TO SHARE THE GOSPEL WITH PEOPLE ALL
  • 00:40:25.170 --> 00:40:27.270
  • OVER THE GLOBE.
  • 00:40:27.290 --> 00:40:29.110
  • AND THEN TO HAVE THAT RARE OPPORTUNITY OF SEEING THEM
  • 00:40:29.130 --> 00:40:32.010
  • COME TOGETHER LIKE THAT AND SEE THE FAVOR OF GOD, IT WAS
  • 00:40:32.030 --> 00:40:36.010
  • PROBABLY ONE OF THE GREATEST KIND OF A COOL THING THAT
  • 00:40:36.030 --> 00:40:40.150
  • GOD DID FOR ME TYPE THING.
  • 00:40:40.170 --> 00:40:42.020
  • BUT YOU HAVE TO HAVE SOME ADVENTURE TO GO DO THAT, AND
  • 00:40:42.040 --> 00:40:49.270
  • I CAN'T DO THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AND
  • 00:40:49.290 --> 00:40:52.270
  • OVER AND OVER AND OVER.
  • 00:40:52.290 --> 00:40:54.170
  • - NO, YEAH.
  • 00:40:54.190 --> 00:40:56.050
  • - THE SAME WAY. I DON'T CARE IF YOU DRIVE WORK A DIFFERENT WAY.
  • 00:40:56.070 --> 00:40:58.070
  • WELL, WHAT IF I GET LOST?
  • 00:40:58.090 --> 00:40:59.220
  • WELL, YOU MIGHT HAVE AN ADVENTURE.
  • 00:40:59.240 --> 00:41:02.130
  • THAT'S WHAT DAVE SAYS.
  • 00:41:02.150 --> 00:41:04.070
  • YOU KNOW, MEN WON'T ASK FOR DIRECTIONS.
  • 00:41:04.090 --> 00:41:05.170
  • - NO, NO, NO.
  • 00:41:05.190 --> 00:41:07.050
  • - THEY WON'T. THAT'S NOT A THING THAT MEN DO.
  • 00:41:07.070 --> 00:41:12.270
  • I KNOW SOMETIMES HE DOESN'T KNOW WHERE HE'S GOING, AND
  • 00:41:12.290 --> 00:41:16.210
  • I'LL SAY -- WELL, OH, YEAH, I'LL FIND IT OF THE IT WILL
  • 00:41:16.230 --> 00:41:19.240
  • BE RIGHT DOWN HERE. I THINK I'LL GO THIS WAY.
  • 00:41:19.260 --> 00:41:21.220
  • DAVE, I CAN'T BE LATE. DON'T DO THAT.
  • 00:41:21.240 --> 00:41:23.200
  • STOP AND ASK FOR DIRECTIONS. NO, NO, NO.
  • 00:41:23.220 --> 00:41:26.070
  • AND I SAY, DAVE, WE'RE GOING TO GET LOST.
  • 00:41:26.090 --> 00:41:28.020
  • AND HE SAYS, NO, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE AN ADVENTURE.
  • 00:41:28.040 --> 00:41:29.100
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:41:29.120 --> 00:41:32.000
  • - OH, MY GOODNESS.
  • 00:41:32.020 --> 00:41:33.200
  • I LOVE THE CHAPTER ON LIVING TRULY.
  • 00:41:33.220 --> 00:41:38.170
  • TALK ABOUT LIVING TRULY.
  • 00:41:38.190 --> 00:41:40.210
  • YOU REMEMBER THE STORY YOU TOLD ABOUT HENRY AUGUSTUS BROLIN?
  • 00:41:40.230 --> 00:41:44.190
  • - NO.
  • 00:41:44.210 --> 00:41:46.180
  • - WELL, YOU TELL ABOUT LIVING TRULY, THEN I WANT TO
  • 00:41:46.200 --> 00:41:48.180
  • TELL THAT STORY.
  • 00:41:48.200 --> 00:41:50.110
  • - WELL, YOU TELL THE STORY. I WANT A DRINK OF WATER.
  • 00:41:50.130 --> 00:41:54.020
  • - WELL, THIS GUY, HE'S THIS BRILLIANT -- I DON'T KNOW IF
  • 00:41:54.040 --> 00:41:58.230
  • HE WAS A JUDGE OR WHO HE WAS, BUT HE WAS BRILLIANT IN
  • 00:41:58.250 --> 00:42:01.050
  • HIS FIELD, AND SO HE'S ON TRIAL BECAUSE HE'S CALLED A
  • 00:42:01.070 --> 00:42:04.160
  • WITNESS IN THIS TRIAL.
  • 00:42:04.180 --> 00:42:07.170
  • AND THE LAWYER ASKED HIM, CAN YOU TELL
  • 00:42:07.190 --> 00:42:14.140
  • US ABOUT YOURSELF?
  • 00:42:14.160 --> 00:42:17.000
  • AND HE SAID, WELL, I AM THE MOST KNOWLEDGEABLE ON
  • 00:42:17.020 --> 00:42:21.110
  • THIS SUBJECT OF ANY PERSON ON THE PLANET.
  • 00:42:21.130 --> 00:42:28.150
  • AND THE WHOLE ROOM KIND OF FREAKED OUT, AND AFTERWARDS,
  • 00:42:28.170 --> 00:42:32.010
  • HIS WIFE ASKED HIM, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?
  • 00:42:32.030 --> 00:42:34.270
  • WHY DID YOU SAY THAT? HE GOES, WHAT COULD I DO?
  • 00:42:34.290 --> 00:42:36.180
  • I WAS UNDER OATH.
  • 00:42:36.200 --> 00:42:38.040
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:42:38.060 --> 00:42:40.130
  • BUT YOU USE IT AS AN ILLUSTRATION IN
  • 00:42:40.150 --> 00:42:42.050
  • YOUR LIVING TRULY.
  • 00:42:42.070 --> 00:42:44.250
  • - WE NEED TO KNOW OURSELVES.
  • 00:42:44.270 --> 00:42:47.180
  • YOU REALLY NEED TO TAKE THE TIME TO KNOW YOURSELF AND
  • 00:42:47.200 --> 00:42:51.030
  • DON'T DECEIVE YOURSELF ABOUT YOURSELF BECAUSE SO OFTEN,
  • 00:42:51.050 --> 00:42:56.240
  • WE'RE LIKE, OH, NO, I DON'T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THAT.
  • 00:42:56.260 --> 00:42:58.290
  • WELL, YEAH, YOU DO. REALLY, YOU DO.
  • 00:42:59.010 --> 00:43:02.120
  • AND YOU KNOW, AS WE KNOW IN JOHN, IT SAYS, "ONLY THE
  • 00:43:02.140 --> 00:43:05.120
  • TRUTH WILL MAKE YOU FREE."
  • 00:43:05.140 --> 00:43:07.120
  • BUT IT'S NOT THE TRUTH ABOUT SOMEBODY ELSE THAT
  • 00:43:07.140 --> 00:43:08.270
  • SETS ME FREE.
  • 00:43:08.290 --> 00:43:10.280
  • IT'S THE TRUTH ABOUT ME THAT SETS ME FREE, AND GOD'S BEEN
  • 00:43:11.000 --> 00:43:14.030
  • SHOWING ME SOMETHING RECENTLY THAT IS NOT
  • 00:43:14.050 --> 00:43:16.090
  • SOMETHING I COVERED IN THIS BOOK, BUT YOU KNOW, JUST TO
  • 00:43:16.110 --> 00:43:19.060
  • TAKE A LITTLE MORE TIME, ESPECIALLY WITH THINGS
  • 00:43:19.080 --> 00:43:24.260
  • THAT ARE A PROBLEM MAYBE, AND TAKE A LITTLE MORE TIME
  • 00:43:24.280 --> 00:43:26.290
  • FOR SOME DEEPER DISCERNMENT ABOUT WHAT'S REALLY GOING ON
  • 00:43:27.010 --> 00:43:31.010
  • BECAUSE WE JUDGE TOO MANY THINGS ON THE SURFACE, AND
  • 00:43:31.030 --> 00:43:33.140
  • WE JUST WANT TO GET PAST IT.
  • 00:43:33.160 --> 00:43:34.280
  • SOMETIMES EVEN THINGS IN OURSELVES, WE DON'T REALLY
  • 00:43:35.000 --> 00:43:38.070
  • WANT TO FACE THEM, SO WE JUST HURRY PAST IT.
  • 00:43:38.090 --> 00:43:43.170
  • A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO, I WAS HAVING KIND OF A BAD
  • 00:43:43.190 --> 00:43:45.210
  • REACTION TO SOMEBODY, NOT OPENLY THIS THEY COULD SEE,
  • 00:43:45.230 --> 00:43:48.280
  • BUT YOU KNOW, IN MY HEART I WAS NOT REALLY
  • 00:43:49.000 --> 00:43:51.140
  • LIKING THEM TOO MUCH.
  • 00:43:51.160 --> 00:43:54.010
  • AND SO I JUST SAID, OKAY, GOD, I'M GOING TO PRACTICE
  • 00:43:54.030 --> 00:43:58.200
  • THIS DISCERNMENT THING.
  • 00:43:58.220 --> 00:44:00.110
  • I'M GOING TO CAMP ON TOP OF THIS UNTIL YOU SHOW ME
  • 00:44:00.130 --> 00:44:01.290
  • WHY I FELT THAT WAY.
  • 00:44:02.010 --> 00:44:04.080
  • IT DIDN'T TAKE VERY LONG AT ALL.
  • 00:44:04.100 --> 00:44:06.160
  • HE JUST SIMPLY SAID, YOU'RE JEALOUS.
  • 00:44:06.180 --> 00:44:08.090
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:44:08.110 --> 00:44:11.110
  • WELL, YEAH, THAT HURTS BECAUSE WHO WANTS
  • 00:44:11.130 --> 00:44:13.170
  • TO THINK THAT?
  • 00:44:13.190 --> 00:44:15.040
  • YOU DON'T WANT TO THINK THAT, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:44:15.060 --> 00:44:17.200
  • ALL FLESH IS FLAWED.
  • 00:44:17.220 --> 00:44:20.120
  • FLOSS FLESH ON THE PLANET THAT'S EVER GOING TO
  • 00:44:20.140 --> 00:44:25.200
  • BE 100% SATISFIED.
  • 00:44:25.220 --> 00:44:29.120
  • OUR FLESH IS FLAWED, AND THE ONLY WAY THAT -- YOU KNOW
  • 00:44:29.140 --> 00:44:33.010
  • WHAT GOD REALLY WANTS?
  • 00:44:33.030 --> 00:44:35.060
  • IT SAYS, "HE DESIRES TRUTH IN THE INNER PARTS."
  • 00:44:35.080 --> 00:44:37.000
  • I DON'T THINK IT'S SO MUCH THAT I FELT JEALOUSY.
  • 00:44:37.020 --> 00:44:40.000
  • I DIDN'T GIVE INTO IT.
  • 00:44:40.020 --> 00:44:41.280
  • THERE'S ALWAYS GOING TO BE TEMPTATION TO SIN.
  • 00:44:42.000 --> 00:44:44.130
  • YOU HAVEN'T SINNED BECAUSE YOU FEEL TEMPTED TO SIN.
  • 00:44:44.150 --> 00:44:48.000
  • YOU'VE ONLY SINNED WHEN YOU DON'T RESIST IT.
  • 00:44:48.020 --> 00:44:50.220
  • AND SO I RESISTED THE WAY I FELT BECAUSE I DON'T
  • 00:44:50.240 --> 00:44:53.250
  • WANT TO BE THAT WAY.
  • 00:44:53.270 --> 00:44:55.180
  • I KNOW THAT'S NOT WAY GOD WANTS US TO BE.
  • 00:44:55.200 --> 00:44:57.240
  • LET'S JUST SAY, FOR EXAMPLE, MAYBE A WOMAN IS 20 POUNDS
  • 00:44:57.260 --> 00:45:01.200
  • OVERWEIGHT, AND SHE MEETS A REALLY LIKE PERFECTLY...
  • 00:45:01.220 --> 00:45:06.110
  • - YEAH, YEAH, I GOT IT.
  • 00:45:06.130 --> 00:45:10.030
  • - 2% BODY FAT, BEAUTIFUL, TALL, LONG, JUST BEAUTIFUL
  • 00:45:10.050 --> 00:45:15.210
  • WOMAN, BEAUTIFUL WOMAN WHO'S EATING CAKE AND
  • 00:45:15.230 --> 00:45:18.110
  • NOT GAINING WEIGHT.
  • 00:45:18.130 --> 00:45:20.100
  • - I'M AGAINST THAT.
  • 00:45:20.120 --> 00:45:22.060
  • - SHE COULD SMELL THE CAKE AND GAIN WEIGHT.
  • 00:45:22.080 --> 00:45:25.020
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:45:25.040 --> 00:45:26.290
  • AND HONESTLY THIS CAN HAPPEN.
  • 00:45:27.010 --> 00:45:28.240
  • IT'S LIKE THE WOMAN WHO'S A LITTLE BIT FLUFFY...
  • 00:45:28.260 --> 00:45:31.210
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:45:31.230 --> 00:45:33.290
  • DOESN'T LIKE THE OTHER WOMAN.
  • 00:45:34.010 --> 00:45:36.180
  • WELL, I JUST DON'T LIKE HER. I JUST DON'T LIKE HER.
  • 00:45:36.200 --> 00:45:39.040
  • WELL, WHY DON'T YOU LIKE HER?
  • 00:45:39.060 --> 00:45:41.160
  • SEE, WE CAN GO OUR WHOLE LIFE AND JUST NEVER EXAMINE
  • 00:45:41.180 --> 00:45:45.050
  • ANY OF OUR ATTITUDES ABOUT WHY WE FEEL WAYS, AND GOD
  • 00:45:45.070 --> 00:45:48.060
  • WOULD BE REALLY HAPPY TO TELL US IF WE
  • 00:45:48.080 --> 00:45:49.210
  • WOULD JUST ASK HIM.
  • 00:45:49.230 --> 00:45:51.150
  • SO WHY DO I REALLY FEEL THAT WAY?
  • 00:45:51.170 --> 00:45:53.230
  • WELL, BECAUSE SHE LOOKED BETTER THAN YOU, AND YOU'RE
  • 00:45:53.250 --> 00:45:57.200
  • JEALOUS BECAUSE OF THAT.
  • 00:45:57.220 --> 00:46:01.110
  • AND SEE, JUST BEING TRUTHFUL WITH YOURSELF, IT'S ACTUALLY
  • 00:46:01.130 --> 00:46:04.180
  • PAINFUL, BUT IT CAN BE VERY FREEING, AND YOU ACTUALLY GO
  • 00:46:04.200 --> 00:46:08.050
  • GET TO THE POINT WHERE YOU REALLY -- BECAUSE SEE, TO
  • 00:46:08.070 --> 00:46:11.070
  • FACE SOMETHING THAT'S NOT SO NICE ABOUT YOURSELF DOESN'T
  • 00:46:11.090 --> 00:46:14.030
  • NEED TO CONDEMN YOU. IT'S NOT ABOUT CONDEMNATION.
  • 00:46:14.050 --> 00:46:17.170
  • WE FACE THE TRUTH SO WE CAN BE FREE.
  • 00:46:17.190 --> 00:46:21.010
  • IF WE HAD A LOT FEWER PHONEY CHRISTIANS WHO STOPPED
  • 00:46:21.030 --> 00:46:25.150
  • TRYING TO PRETEND THAT THEY NEVER HAVE ANY PROBLEMS AND
  • 00:46:25.170 --> 00:46:31.110
  • WOULD OWN UP TO SOME OF THE STUFF THAT THEY GO THROUGH,
  • 00:46:31.130 --> 00:46:34.200
  • THEN I THINK MORE PEOPLE WOULD WANT TO
  • 00:46:34.220 --> 00:46:37.190
  • COME INTO THE CHURCH.
  • 00:46:37.210 --> 00:46:39.130
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:46:39.150 --> 00:46:46.020
  • - YOU KNOW, FOR THOSE THAT JUST JOINED US, I REGRET
  • 00:46:46.040 --> 00:46:51.200
  • YOU'VE MISSED A LOT OF THE SHOW, BUT YOU STILL HAVE A
  • 00:46:51.220 --> 00:46:54.200
  • LITTLE BIT TO GO.
  • 00:46:54.220 --> 00:46:56.120
  • WE'RE DISCUSSING WITH JOYCE MEYER "20 WAYS TO MAKE EVERY
  • 00:46:56.140 --> 00:46:59.240
  • DAY BETTER".
  • 00:46:59.260 --> 00:47:01.240
  • LET ME TELL YOU WHY I BELIEVE YOU SHOULD
  • 00:47:01.260 --> 00:47:03.190
  • GET THIS BOOK.
  • 00:47:03.210 --> 00:47:05.110
  • I'VE READ IT COVER-TO-COVER, AND THE REASON WHY I THINK
  • 00:47:05.130 --> 00:47:07.020
  • YOU SHOULD GET IT IS BECAUSE JOYCE PREACHES, TEACHES, AND
  • 00:47:07.040 --> 00:47:11.240
  • WRITES IN A WAY THAT I WOULD CALL A LINEAR WAY; THE
  • 00:47:11.260 --> 00:47:16.010
  • SHORTEST POINT BETWEEN TWO POINTS, THE STRAIGHTEST LINE
  • 00:47:16.030 --> 00:47:18.280
  • WENT TO TWO POINTS.
  • 00:47:19.000 --> 00:47:20.190
  • SHE STARTS AT THE BEGINNING AND TAKES YOU ON A
  • 00:47:20.210 --> 00:47:23.030
  • STRAIGHT LINE TO THE END OF THE VICTORY.
  • 00:47:23.050 --> 00:47:26.100
  • I MEAN THAT. I MEAN THAT.
  • 00:47:26.120 --> 00:47:28.180
  • AND SOMETIMES YOU READ, OR YOU HEAR PEOPLE SPEAK, AND
  • 00:47:28.200 --> 00:47:31.030
  • THEY'RE ALL OVER THE GLOBE, AND YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:47:31.050 --> 00:47:33.120
  • REALLY SURE WHAT THEY SAID WHEN IT'S DONE.
  • 00:47:33.140 --> 00:47:35.020
  • THAT'S NOT THIS BOOK.
  • 00:47:35.040 --> 00:47:36.220
  • YOU NEED THIS BOOK BECAUSE IT READS IN A LINEAR WAY.
  • 00:47:36.240 --> 00:47:39.060
  • IT TAKES YOU SOMEWHERE, AND I THINK IT TAKES YOU TO
  • 00:47:39.080 --> 00:47:42.080
  • VICTORY IS WHAT I BELIEVE.
  • 00:47:42.100 --> 00:47:44.010
  • YOU DO THAT ONE CHAPTER ON SLOWING DOWN, AND YOU USE
  • 00:47:44.030 --> 00:47:47.110
  • THAT LINE FROM LILY TOMLIN, "FOR FAST-ACTING RELIEF, TRY
  • 00:47:47.130 --> 00:47:52.040
  • GOING SLOWER" OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
  • 00:47:52.060 --> 00:47:55.050
  • I READ IT, AND I THOUGHT IT WAS FUNNY.
  • 00:47:55.070 --> 00:47:56.240
  • TALK TO US ABOUT SLOWING DOWN A BIT.
  • 00:47:56.260 --> 00:47:58.230
  • - WELL, LORD HELP US, I TELL YOU, I'LL A
  • 00:47:58.250 --> 00:48:01.020
  • PRETTY SPEEDY PERSON.
  • 00:48:01.040 --> 00:48:03.010
  • I MAKE QUICK DECISIONS.
  • 00:48:03.030 --> 00:48:04.260
  • I SAY THINGS SOMETIMES A LOT QUICKER THAN
  • 00:48:04.280 --> 00:48:06.270
  • I SHOULD SAY THEM. I'M VERY PURPOSEFUL.
  • 00:48:06.290 --> 00:48:11.020
  • DAVE JUST LAUGHS AT ME BECAUSE LIKE THIS
  • 00:48:11.040 --> 00:48:13.160
  • MORNING, I WAS READY.
  • 00:48:13.180 --> 00:48:15.290
  • I WAS GOING TO GO WALK, AND I HAD MY SHOES ON,
  • 00:48:16.010 --> 00:48:18.160
  • I'M READY TO GO.
  • 00:48:18.180 --> 00:48:20.100
  • AND DAVE IS ALWAYS WANTING ME TO COME AND LET HIM READ
  • 00:48:20.120 --> 00:48:23.100
  • SOMETHING TO ME.
  • 00:48:23.120 --> 00:48:25.070
  • THIS MORNING IT WAS, "OH, I WANT YOU TO LOOK AT THIS."
  • 00:48:25.090 --> 00:48:28.000
  • HE WAS LOOKING AT SOMETHING OUT THE WINDOW
  • 00:48:28.020 --> 00:48:30.030
  • THROUGH HIS BINOCULARS, AND HE WANTED ME TO SEE IT.
  • 00:48:30.050 --> 00:48:33.050
  • WELL, I ALREADY KNEW WHEN HE CALLED ME, IT WAS NOT GOING
  • 00:48:33.070 --> 00:48:35.060
  • TO BE ANYTHING THAT WAS LIFE-CHANGING FOR ME.
  • 00:48:35.080 --> 00:48:38.030
  • I WANTED TO GO WALK. I HAD MY PLAN. I WANT TO GO WALK.
  • 00:48:38.050 --> 00:48:40.270
  • AND SOMETIMES, REALLY --
  • 00:48:40.290 --> 00:48:43.260
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:48:43.280 --> 00:48:46.070
  • - THAT IS THE WAY MY WIFE IS. I GOT IT, I GOT IT.
  • 00:48:46.090 --> 00:48:49.260
  • - AND SO I'M A PERSON OF PURPOSE, AND THAT'S NOT A
  • 00:48:49.280 --> 00:48:53.200
  • BAD THING, BUT THAT'S HOW I GET A LOT DONE, BUT IT CAN
  • 00:48:53.220 --> 00:48:57.190
  • BE BAD IF YOU'RE GOING SO FAST AT THAT HALF THE TIME,
  • 00:48:57.210 --> 00:49:03.070
  • YOU'RE NOT EVEN SURE WHAT YOU'RE DOING.
  • 00:49:03.090 --> 00:49:06.000
  • AND SO REALLY, TO ENJOY LIFE MORE, YOU HAVE TO SLOW DOWN
  • 00:49:06.020 --> 00:49:10.140
  • A LITTLE BIT BECAUSE IT'S TRUE.
  • 00:49:10.160 --> 00:49:13.070
  • YOU CAN ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING AND NOT EVEN
  • 00:49:13.090 --> 00:49:17.050
  • REMEMBER THAT YOU DID IT IF YOU DO IT SO FAST THAT
  • 00:49:17.070 --> 00:49:23.260
  • YOU'RE NOT ACTUALLY GETTING ANYTHING OUT OF IT.
  • 00:49:23.280 --> 00:49:26.280
  • AND SO SLOWING DOWN IS IMPORTANT.
  • 00:49:27.000 --> 00:49:29.080
  • I KNOW WE DON'T HAVE A TON OF TIME LEFT, AND THERE'S A
  • 00:49:29.100 --> 00:49:31.210
  • COUPLE OF THESE THAT I WANT TO GET TO BECAUSE I THINK
  • 00:49:31.230 --> 00:49:34.230
  • THEY'RE REALLY IMPORTANT.
  • 00:49:34.250 --> 00:49:36.270
  • FORGIVE AND FORGET.
  • 00:49:36.290 --> 00:49:38.220
  • NOW, WE NEVER HEAR TOO MUCH ABOUT FORGIVING PEOPLE, BUT
  • 00:49:38.240 --> 00:49:41.120
  • LET ME JUST SAY IN THE AMOUNT OF TIME THAT WE HAVE
  • 00:49:41.140 --> 00:49:44.170
  • HERE THAT IF YOU'RE ANGRY AT ANYBODY, NO MATTER HOW WELL
  • 00:49:44.190 --> 00:49:50.020
  • YOU THINK YOU'VE HIDDEN IT, YOU'RE NOT GOING
  • 00:49:50.040 --> 00:49:52.260
  • TO HAVE A GOOD DAY.
  • 00:49:52.280 --> 00:49:54.250
  • THERE'S GOING TO BE SOMETHING DOWN DEEP INSIDE
  • 00:49:54.270 --> 00:49:57.080
  • EATING AWAY AT YOU, AND I REALLY JUST URGE PEOPLE TO
  • 00:49:57.100 --> 00:50:00.220
  • FORGIVE AND FORGET. LET IT GO.
  • 00:50:00.240 --> 00:50:04.190
  • DROP IT, AND GO ON WITH LIFE BECAUSE MANY TIMES WE'RE
  • 00:50:04.210 --> 00:50:10.050
  • ANGRY AT SOMEBODY FOR SOMETHING THEY DON'T EVEN
  • 00:50:10.070 --> 00:50:12.230
  • KNOW THEY DID, OR WE'RE MAKING OUR LIVES MISERABLE,
  • 00:50:12.250 --> 00:50:17.260
  • AND THE PERSON WE'RE HATING IS OUT HAVING A GOOD TIME
  • 00:50:17.280 --> 00:50:20.070
  • AND DOESN'T EVEN CARE THAT WE'RE UPSET.
  • 00:50:20.090 --> 00:50:22.240
  • AND SO REALLY, WHEN GOD TELLS US OVER AND OVER AND
  • 00:50:22.260 --> 00:50:26.030
  • OVER AND OVER IN SCRIPTURE TO FORGIVE -- I MEAN IT'S
  • 00:50:26.050 --> 00:50:29.140
  • EVERYWHERE, FORGIVE -- HE'S NOT EVEN NECESSARILY TELLING
  • 00:50:29.160 --> 00:50:33.030
  • US TO DO THAT FOR THE PERSON WHO HURT US, BUT MORE FOR US
  • 00:50:33.050 --> 00:50:37.120
  • SO WE CAN BE SET FREE.
  • 00:50:37.140 --> 00:50:44.140
  • AND SO WE THINK SOMETIMES WE'RE LETTING OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:50:44.160 --> 00:50:46.190
  • OUT OF PRISON IF WE'RE SO GRACIOUS TO FORGIVE THEM,
  • 00:50:46.210 --> 00:50:48.200
  • BUT REALLY WE'RE THE ONES THAT ARE BEING SET FREE.
  • 00:50:48.220 --> 00:50:54.020
  • AND THAT'S SOMETHING THAT I JUST PRETTY MUCH AT THIS
  • 00:50:54.040 --> 00:50:56.190
  • POINT OF MY LIFE REFUSE TO DO.
  • 00:50:56.210 --> 00:50:58.190
  • I AM NOT GOING TO WASTE ONE MORE DAY OF MY LIFE BEING
  • 00:50:58.210 --> 00:51:02.110
  • ANGRY ABOUT SOMETHING THAT HAS ALREADY HAPPENED THAT I
  • 00:51:02.130 --> 00:51:05.290
  • CAN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT.
  • 00:51:06.010 --> 00:51:08.060
  • AND SO WE REALLY NEED TO DO THAT.
  • 00:51:08.080 --> 00:51:09.260
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:51:09.280 --> 00:51:17.080
  • AND THEN, OF COURSE, ONE THAT WE ALL HEAR ABOUT ALL
  • 00:51:17.100 --> 00:51:19.100
  • THE TIME, BUT YOU CAN NEVER HEAR IT TOO MUCH IS JUST BE
  • 00:51:19.120 --> 00:51:21.000
  • GRATEFUL, BEING GRATEFUL.
  • 00:51:21.020 --> 00:51:24.190
  • HERE AGAIN, THERE'S A SCRIPTURE IN ECCLIASTES THAT
  • 00:51:24.210 --> 00:51:27.290
  • SAYS, "THE ENJOYMENT OF WHAT ONE HAS IS BETTER THAN
  • 00:51:28.010 --> 00:51:32.260
  • THE CRAVINGS OF WANDERING DESIRE."
  • 00:51:32.280 --> 00:51:35.240
  • - WHAT A LINE.
  • 00:51:35.260 --> 00:51:37.280
  • - THE ENJOYMENT OF WHAT ONE HAS IS BETTER
  • 00:51:38.000 --> 00:51:41.260
  • THAN THE CRAVINGS OF WANDERING DESIRE.
  • 00:51:41.280 --> 00:51:45.070
  • SO HOW OFTEN MIGHT WE SIT THINKING ABOUT
  • 00:51:45.090 --> 00:51:48.220
  • EVERYTHING WE DON'T HAVE.
  • 00:51:48.240 --> 00:51:50.110
  • - TRUE.
  • 00:51:50.130 --> 00:51:51.290
  • - COMPARING OURSELVES WITH OTHER PEOPLE, AND IN THE
  • 00:51:52.010 --> 00:51:54.160
  • PROCESS, WE HAVE SO MUCH.
  • 00:51:54.180 --> 00:51:57.260
  • MY GOSH, JUST TO HAVE RUNNING WATER IN
  • 00:51:57.280 --> 00:52:01.000
  • YOUR HOUSE IS SO MUCH.
  • 00:52:01.020 --> 00:52:03.060
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:52:03.080 --> 00:52:06.160
  • I MEAN, WHEN YOU SEE GIRLS AND WOMEN IN THESE FOREIGN
  • 00:52:06.180 --> 00:52:10.030
  • AND THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES WALKING MILES AND HOURS
  • 00:52:10.050 --> 00:52:13.120
  • EVERY DAY JUST TO BRING BACK FILTHY DIRTY WATER, AND WE
  • 00:52:13.140 --> 00:52:15.240
  • CAN RUN AND COLD IN EVERY ROOM IN OUR HOUSE -- I MEAN,
  • 00:52:15.260 --> 00:52:19.200
  • WE HAVE SO MUCH TO BE GRATEFUL FOR.
  • 00:52:19.220 --> 00:52:23.100
  • AND THEN LAST POINT, NUMBER 20 -- AND JUST BECAUSE
  • 00:52:23.120 --> 00:52:26.270
  • PEOPLE ARE HEARING THESE POINTS, THAT DOESN'T MEAN
  • 00:52:26.290 --> 00:52:28.260
  • THEY'VE GOT THE MESSAGE.
  • 00:52:28.280 --> 00:52:30.150
  • - NO.
  • 00:52:30.170 --> 00:52:32.100
  • - SO I STILL WOULD LIKE THEM TO GET THE BOOK, BUT I
  • 00:52:32.120 --> 00:52:34.070
  • REMEMBER YOU SAYING THAT ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE CHAPTERS
  • 00:52:34.090 --> 00:52:38.140
  • WAS CHAPTER 20, AND IT'S JUST CALLED "BEING AMAZED".
  • 00:52:38.160 --> 00:52:42.150
  • AND I DID A WHOLE TEACHING ONE TIME
  • 00:52:42.170 --> 00:52:45.040
  • CALLED "LIVING AMAZED".
  • 00:52:45.060 --> 00:52:46.270
  • WE GET TOO USED TO GOD, JUST TOO USED TO HIM.
  • 00:52:46.290 --> 00:52:55.110
  • ONE TIME I WAS SAYING, OH, GOD WHY DON'T YOU DO THE
  • 00:52:55.130 --> 00:52:57.200
  • THINGS IN MY LIFE THAT YOU USED TO DO WHEN I WAS
  • 00:52:57.220 --> 00:53:01.000
  • FIRST BORN AGAIN?
  • 00:53:01.020 --> 00:53:02.270
  • [LAUGHTER]
  • 00:53:02.290 --> 00:53:04.170
  • YOU KNOW, IT WAS ALL SO EXCITING THEN, AND I WOULD
  • 00:53:04.190 --> 00:53:07.100
  • GET A WORD FROM GOD, OR I'D OPEN UP THE BIBLE TO A
  • 00:53:07.120 --> 00:53:09.090
  • SCRIPTURE, AND IT WAS LIKE OH, MY,
  • 00:53:09.110 --> 00:53:10.280
  • GOD IS SPEAKING TO ME.
  • 00:53:11.000 --> 00:53:13.090
  • AND YOU KNOW WHAT HE SAID TO ME?
  • 00:53:13.110 --> 00:53:15.210
  • HE SAID, I STILL DO ALL THE SAME THINGS.
  • 00:53:15.230 --> 00:53:17.250
  • YOU'VE JUST GOTTEN USED TO IT.
  • 00:53:17.270 --> 00:53:19.200
  • - OH, MY, JOYCE.
  • 00:53:19.220 --> 00:53:21.210
  • - WE DON'T WANT TO GET USED TO GOD.
  • 00:53:21.230 --> 00:53:24.140
  • WE WANT TO ALWAYS BE AMAZED BY EVERYTHING THAT GOD IS
  • 00:53:24.160 --> 00:53:27.270
  • DOING IN OUR LIVES ALL THE TIME, ALL THE TIME.
  • 00:53:27.290 --> 00:53:31.250
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:53:31.270 --> 00:53:38.140
  • - WE DON'T HAVE GUESTS LIKE THIS AND TALK ABOUT BOOKS
  • 00:53:38.160 --> 00:53:43.230
  • LIKE THIS JUST TO BE PASSING TIME.
  • 00:53:43.250 --> 00:53:47.110
  • PEOPLE THAT HELP SUPPORT TBN WORLDWIDE EXPECT US TO USE
  • 00:53:47.130 --> 00:53:53.120
  • THE TIME WISELY, AND I DON'T KNOW IF IT THE BEEN USED
  • 00:53:53.140 --> 00:53:57.160

  • WITH ONE OF GOD'S GENERALS, JOYCE MEYER.
  • 00:54:01.120 --> 00:54:05.090
  • YOU SAY, WELL, WHY WOULD YOU SEEN SAY THAT?
  • 00:54:05.110 --> 00:54:07.030
  • WELL, LET'S START WITH THE FACT THAT SHE'S BEEN IN THE
  • 00:54:07.050 --> 00:54:09.030
  • MINISTRY FOR OVER 40 YEARS. SHE'S WRITTEN 116 BOOKS.
  • 00:54:09.050 --> 00:54:14.060
  • IF YOUR BOOKS WERE CRUMMY, YOU WOULDN'T KEEP WRITING
  • 00:54:14.080 --> 00:54:16.150
  • THEM, YOU KNOW WHAT I'M SAYING?
  • 00:54:16.170 --> 00:54:18.250
  • BUT ALL OF THEM ARE SO IMPACTFUL, AND PEOPLE HAVE
  • 00:54:18.270 --> 00:54:22.000
  • BEEN TOUCHED FOR SO LONG.
  • 00:54:22.020 --> 00:54:24.080
  • WE GO TO HER ANNUAL CONFERENCE AND SOME OF THE
  • 00:54:24.100 --> 00:54:26.170
  • BREAK OUT CONFERENCES WITH THOUSANDS OF WOMEN.
  • 00:54:26.190 --> 00:54:29.220
  • THERE WOULD BE A LOT MORE MEN, BUT IT'S KIND OF A
  • 00:54:29.240 --> 00:54:31.220
  • WOMAN'S DEAL, BUT I GET TO GO EVERY YEAR.
  • 00:54:31.240 --> 00:54:33.100
  • - ONCE A YEAR.
  • 00:54:33.120 --> 00:54:35.030
  • - YEAH, EXACTLY. AND IT'S JUST AMAZING. WHY ARE THEY THERE?
  • 00:54:35.050 --> 00:54:38.230
  • THEY'VE BEEN TOUCHED DEEPLY BY SOMEONE WHO ISN'T SAYING
  • 00:54:38.250 --> 00:54:41.100
  • THE SAME OLD STUFF, BUT PACKAGING THE WORD OF GOD IN
  • 00:54:41.120 --> 00:54:47.020
  • FRESH WAYS THAT GOD HAS ALWAYS WANTED US TO DO IT.
  • 00:54:47.040 --> 00:54:50.080
  • AND TODAY, I REALLY ENCOURAGE, AND I'M GOING ASK
  • 00:54:50.100 --> 00:54:53.010
  • JOYCE IF YOU'D PRAY FOR THE FOLKS THAT ARE WATCHING.
  • 00:54:53.030 --> 00:54:55.230
  • BUT ONE MORE TIME, I'D REALLY LOVE FOR TO YOU
  • 00:54:55.250 --> 00:54:59.230
  • CONSIDER GETTING "20 WAYS TO MAKE EVERY DAY BETTER"

  • POWERFUL WAY, IN A POSITIVE WAY.
  • 00:55:06.080 --> 00:55:08.000
  • JOYCE, IF YOU WANT TO SAY A WORD, IF YOU WANT TO LEAD
  • 00:55:08.020 --> 00:55:11.160
  • THE PEOPLE IN PRAYER.
  • 00:55:11.180 --> 00:55:13.010
  • - WELL, I'M GLAD YOU ASKED ME TO PRAY BECAUSE I WAS
  • 00:55:13.030 --> 00:55:14.200
  • THINKING WE'VE BEEN TALKING TO PEOPLE ALL NIGHT WHO
  • 00:55:14.220 --> 00:55:18.010
  • MAYBE FEEL LIKE "I'M NOT HAVING A BAD DAY, HONEY.
  • 00:55:18.030 --> 00:55:20.080
  • I'M HAVING A BAD LIFE."
  • 00:55:20.100 --> 00:55:23.100
  • AND I JUST WANT TO TELL YOU, DON'T EVER STOP HOPING.
  • 00:55:23.120 --> 00:55:26.190
  • HOPE IS THE EXPECTATION THAT GOD IS ABOUT TO DO SOMETHING
  • 00:55:26.210 --> 00:55:30.170
  • AMAZING IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:55:30.190 --> 00:55:33.070
  • I WANT YOU TO BE FULL OF HOPE, AND I DON'T WANT YOU
  • 00:55:33.090 --> 00:55:35.180
  • TO HAVE A BAD LIFE, A BAD MONTH, A BAD WEEK, A BAD
  • 00:55:35.200 --> 00:55:38.140
  • DAY, OR A BAD HOUR, BECAUSE JESUS CAME THAT WE MIGHT
  • 00:55:38.160 --> 00:55:41.210
  • HAVE AND ENJOY OUR LIVES AND HAVE IT IN
  • 00:55:41.230 --> 00:55:43.130
  • ABUNDANCE TO THE FULL.
  • 00:55:43.150 --> 00:55:45.070
  • SO I PRAY IN THE NAME OF JESUS THAT YOU WOULD GET TO
  • 00:55:45.090 --> 00:55:48.150
  • THE ROOT OF WHY YOU'RE UNHAPPY.
  • 00:55:48.170 --> 00:55:51.200
  • DEAL WITH IT BEFORE GOD.
  • 00:55:51.220 --> 00:55:53.150
  • LEARN TO LIVE TRULY, AND BE AMAZED AT ALL THAT GOD IS
  • 00:55:53.170 --> 00:55:56.190
  • DOING IN YOUR LIFE EVERY SINGLE DAY.
  • 00:55:56.210 --> 00:56:01.230
  • AND NEVER FORGET THAT GOD LOVES YOU UNCONDITIONALLY,
  • 00:56:01.250 --> 00:56:04.250
  • MORE THAN YOU CAN EVER POSSIBLY IMAGINE.
  • 00:56:04.270 --> 00:56:09.210
  • - THANK YOU JESUS.
  • 00:56:09.230 --> 00:56:11.120
  • - HE LOVES YOU. YOU'RE SPECIAL.
  • 00:56:11.140 --> 00:56:13.040
  • GOD'S GOT A GOOD PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE, AND DON'T
  • 00:56:13.060 --> 00:56:15.090
  • YOU LET THE DEVIL TALK YOU OUT OF IT.
  • 00:56:15.110 --> 00:56:17.120
  • - AMEN.
  • 00:56:17.140 --> 00:56:18.290
