  • We can't wait to see you there.
  • 00:00:32.280 --> 00:00:35.040
  • This is your world, so let's vow
  • 00:00:36.190 --> 00:00:40.270
  • to make it a better place.
  • 00:00:40.280 --> 00:00:44.260

  • Oh, let his light shine bright in you.

  • Oh, we're saved by his grace so we embrace your love today.
  • 00:01:00.230 --> 00:01:07.120
  • We are changed.
  • 00:01:07.130 --> 00:01:11.280
  • 00:01:11.290 --> 00:01:15.200
  • Creflo: If you could only start viewing your past and the
  • 00:01:15.210 --> 00:01:18.080
  • past of others through the non-critical lens of God,
  • 00:01:18.090 --> 00:01:22.220
  • you would experience the unmerited and unlimited favor
  • 00:01:22.230 --> 00:01:25.090
  • and grace he has promised for you.
  • 00:01:25.100 --> 00:01:27.280
  • Welcome back to our series this week where we place our
  • 00:01:27.290 --> 00:01:31.110
  • attention on the grace life.
  • 00:01:31.120 --> 00:01:33.230
  • On today's story of grace, you'll meet a couple who have
  • 00:01:33.240 --> 00:01:37.290
  • been through tragedy after tragedy in their lives and in
  • 00:01:38.000 --> 00:01:41.220
  • their marriage, holding on to a thread of hope that they could
  • 00:01:41.230 --> 00:01:45.160
  • overcome their circumstances together.
  • 00:01:45.170 --> 00:01:47.280
  • And on our program, "Your World," they prove the power of
  • 00:01:47.290 --> 00:01:51.280
  • God's grace and restoration.
  • 00:01:51.290 --> 00:01:53.280
  • Now, if you're ready to move past your pain and
  • 00:01:53.290 --> 00:01:56.130
  • disappointment and achieve a new life of peace and promise,
  • 00:01:56.140 --> 00:02:00.170
  • then watch this.
  • 00:02:00.180 --> 00:02:02.280
  • announcer: Previously on "Your World."
  • 00:02:05.190 --> 00:02:08.090
  • Creflo: Every morning, so many married couples wake up
  • 00:02:08.100 --> 00:02:11.070
  • and put on a show.
  • 00:02:11.080 --> 00:02:12.220
  • They may appear happy and successful,
  • 00:02:12.230 --> 00:02:14.100
  • but behind closed doors, they are hanging on for dear life.
  • 00:02:14.110 --> 00:02:19.200
  • Creflo: What happened with the marriage?
  • 00:02:19.210 --> 00:02:22.050
  • Tim Johnson: She just got tired,
  • 00:02:22.060 --> 00:02:24.050
  • where trust began to go out the window,
  • 00:02:24.060 --> 00:02:26.120
  • and I'm losing everything.
  • 00:02:26.130 --> 00:02:28.020
  • I am not seeing anything.
  • 00:02:28.030 --> 00:02:30.110
  • I'm a complete failure.
  • 00:02:30.120 --> 00:02:31.290
  • Creflo: Is it anything that you're not willing to do to see
  • 00:02:32.000 --> 00:02:36.040
  • the restoration you want to see in your marriage?
  • 00:02:36.050 --> 00:02:38.220
  • Tim: I'm willing to do whatever takes.
  • 00:02:38.230 --> 00:02:40.070
  • That's why I'm here today.
  • 00:02:40.080 --> 00:02:41.200
  • But for me, I said to myself, "It's too late.
  • 00:02:41.210 --> 00:02:46.040
  • I'm too low.
  • 00:02:46.050 --> 00:02:48.050
  • I don't trust God and believe God anymore
  • 00:02:48.060 --> 00:02:51.160
  • so I'm walking away from it.
  • 00:02:51.170 --> 00:02:53.040
  • Because if I can't do what I thought I was going to do,
  • 00:02:53.050 --> 00:02:56.050
  • then I might as well go back and do what
  • 00:02:56.060 --> 00:02:58.080
  • I know what I'm good at."
  • 00:02:58.090 --> 00:03:00.020
  • And I'm telling you, I went back to the drug life,
  • 00:03:00.030 --> 00:03:03.070
  • the preacher dealing, dabbing, and eventually began using the
  • 00:03:03.080 --> 00:03:07.280
  • very product that I was distributing to others.
  • 00:03:07.290 --> 00:03:11.040
  • I thought I was hiding it, but somehow it was exposed not just
  • 00:03:11.050 --> 00:03:15.150
  • to my wife but to my children.
  • 00:03:15.160 --> 00:03:17.050
  • Creflo: And I think it being exposed is the mercy of God.
  • 00:03:17.060 --> 00:03:19.170
  • If you know someone who is currently facing the decision to
  • 00:03:19.180 --> 00:03:23.110
  • end their marriage, call them and get them to tune in because
  • 00:03:23.120 --> 00:03:26.290
  • what we're about to discuss could save that relationship.
  • 00:03:27.000 --> 00:03:31.090
  • announcer: We'll continue with part two of this episode.
  • 00:03:32.130 --> 00:03:35.000
  • Tim: I went back to that life dealing,
  • 00:03:37.040 --> 00:03:39.200
  • dabbing, and eventually began using the very product that I
  • 00:03:39.210 --> 00:03:44.050
  • was distributing to others.
  • 00:03:44.060 --> 00:03:45.270
  • Creflo: And of course, that added more to--
  • 00:03:45.280 --> 00:03:47.210
  • Tim: That added even more because I thought I was hiding
  • 00:03:47.220 --> 00:03:50.190
  • it from my family, but somehow it was exposed not just to my
  • 00:03:50.200 --> 00:03:56.080
  • wife but to my children.
  • 00:03:56.090 --> 00:03:58.010
  • Creflo: And I think it being exposed is the mercy of God.
  • 00:03:58.020 --> 00:04:02.040
  • Yeah, see, because if it
  • 00:04:02.050 --> 00:04:04.010
  • wasn't exposed and you end up dead somewhere.
  • 00:04:04.020 --> 00:04:07.260
  • It's God's mercy.
  • 00:04:07.270 --> 00:04:09.060
  • When God put Adam and Eve out the garden,
  • 00:04:09.070 --> 00:04:10.170
  • that was his mercy.
  • 00:04:10.180 --> 00:04:12.170
  • What would happen if they stayed?
  • 00:04:12.180 --> 00:04:13.290
  • What would happen if they ate of that tree of life to do that?
  • 00:04:14.000 --> 00:04:16.250
  • I want to take a break for a moment.
  • 00:04:16.260 --> 00:04:19.090
  • Tim's wife, Amber, opens up about the effects that his
  • 00:04:19.100 --> 00:04:23.110
  • choices have had on her, their children,
  • 00:04:23.120 --> 00:04:25.290
  • and her faith in God.
  • 00:04:26.000 --> 00:04:28.030
  • Please help me welcome Amber to "Your World" today.
  • 00:04:28.040 --> 00:04:31.200
  • [audience applauding]
  • 00:04:31.230 --> 00:04:33.010
  • Creflo: Hi, Amber.
  • 00:04:36.210 --> 00:04:40.080
  • I want to give you an opportunity to tell us about who
  • 00:04:40.090 --> 00:04:42.120
  • you are and how you've been impacted by this marriage,
  • 00:04:42.130 --> 00:04:45.240
  • and then we're going to talk about what do you need from Tim
  • 00:04:45.250 --> 00:04:50.170
  • in order for this thing to work.
  • 00:04:50.180 --> 00:04:52.030
  • Let me give you--and if it makes you guys feel better,
  • 00:04:52.040 --> 00:04:55.270
  • nobody's sat on this couch without shedding tears.
  • 00:04:55.280 --> 00:04:59.110
  • I don't know what it is about the couch.
  • 00:04:59.120 --> 00:05:00.230
  • We tried to buy a new one and it's still
  • 00:05:00.240 --> 00:05:02.050
  • the same thing, you know?
  • 00:05:02.060 --> 00:05:04.070
  • Amber, talk to us.
  • 00:05:04.080 --> 00:05:07.140
  • Amber Johnson: I met Tim in 2000.
  • 00:05:10.180 --> 00:05:16.120
  • I was with a friend looking for a car,
  • 00:05:16.130 --> 00:05:20.180
  • and I walked on the lot and the guy came out and he said,
  • 00:05:20.190 --> 00:05:23.260
  • "I think you're my friend's wife."
  • 00:05:23.270 --> 00:05:28.020
  • I was like, "How is that?"
  • 00:05:28.030 --> 00:05:29.190
  • He goes, "I just know."
  • 00:05:29.200 --> 00:05:31.030
  • I met him, talked to him on the phone for a couple of weeks.
  • 00:05:31.040 --> 00:05:35.130
  • I was a youth pastor and so was he.
  • 00:05:35.140 --> 00:05:37.030
  • So we had that connection there, and I was recently saved.
  • 00:05:37.040 --> 00:05:40.060
  • And when you're a young Christian,
  • 00:05:40.070 --> 00:05:42.280
  • that's what you look for--a woman looks for is a preacher.
  • 00:05:42.290 --> 00:05:45.280
  • So he was a preacher.
  • 00:05:45.290 --> 00:05:47.280
  • I was like, "Well, maybe this is God."
  • 00:05:47.290 --> 00:05:49.080
  • I didn't know too much about religion,
  • 00:05:49.090 --> 00:05:50.180
  • came out of a Catholic background.
  • 00:05:50.190 --> 00:05:52.090
  • He ended up coming to the church,
  • 00:05:52.100 --> 00:05:53.260
  • bringing some flyers for a youth event that he was doing.
  • 00:05:53.270 --> 00:05:56.050
  • And so I met him and I was like, "Oh, okay.
  • 00:05:56.060 --> 00:05:58.090
  • He might be the one."
  • 00:05:58.100 --> 00:06:00.270
  • because we used to talk--we talked on the phone for
  • 00:06:00.280 --> 00:06:02.160
  • two weeks and I used to always ask him at the
  • 00:06:02.170 --> 00:06:04.210
  • end, "Let's pray."
  • 00:06:04.220 --> 00:06:06.060
  • 'Cause we wanted to make sure that this is God.
  • 00:06:06.070 --> 00:06:08.080
  • If it's not, close it.
  • 00:06:08.090 --> 00:06:09.180
  • Don't want to go any further.
  • 00:06:09.190 --> 00:06:11.100
  • So we met in May and some things happened with him and our pastor
  • 00:06:11.110 --> 00:06:17.230
  • told us not to get married.
  • 00:06:17.240 --> 00:06:20.260
  • He says, "It's not time."
  • 00:06:20.270 --> 00:06:22.100
  • So with me being a new Christian and him being an older
  • 00:06:22.110 --> 00:06:25.180
  • Christian, I followed him and said,
  • 00:06:25.190 --> 00:06:27.280
  • "Nobody wants us to be together.
  • 00:06:27.290 --> 00:06:30.090
  • Let's just do it."
  • 00:06:30.100 --> 00:06:31.190
  • So we didn't have no wedding.
  • 00:06:31.200 --> 00:06:33.040
  • We went to the justice of the peace.
  • 00:06:33.050 --> 00:06:35.090
  • And he ends up going to jail, but I knew that it was God.
  • 00:06:35.100 --> 00:06:42.190
  • I just didn't know really because I was a new Christian.
  • 00:06:42.200 --> 00:06:46.070
  • As soon as he got out, we went straight to the justice of peace
  • 00:06:46.080 --> 00:06:48.260
  • and got married.
  • 00:06:48.270 --> 00:06:50.120
  • I know that spiritually that it is God,
  • 00:06:50.130 --> 00:06:53.170
  • but naturally I'm like, "There's no way."
  • 00:06:53.180 --> 00:06:56.000
  • because we've been through some things,
  • 00:06:56.010 --> 00:06:58.120
  • you know, through his financial situation.
  • 00:06:58.130 --> 00:07:00.260
  • When I met him, he didn't have anything,
  • 00:07:00.270 --> 00:07:02.250
  • but I wasn't looking at that.
  • 00:07:02.260 --> 00:07:04.200
  • Things started sparring with his--the so called demons,
  • 00:07:04.210 --> 00:07:09.150
  • but they were things that he was dealing with that he hasn't
  • 00:07:09.160 --> 00:07:11.280
  • been, you know, healed yet in, which I found out a few years.
  • 00:07:11.290 --> 00:07:17.020
  • I actually came down here to go to a Taffi Dollar conference and
  • 00:07:17.030 --> 00:07:21.130
  • then I got a phone call from someone saying
  • 00:07:21.140 --> 00:07:23.220
  • that he was out drinking.
  • 00:07:23.230 --> 00:07:26.050
  • I'm like, "Drinking? He's a pastor."
  • 00:07:26.060 --> 00:07:27.190
  • How can you drink?
  • 00:07:27.200 --> 00:07:29.000
  • You're supposed to be this spiritual being
  • 00:07:29.010 --> 00:07:30.130
  • and you don't have sin.
  • 00:07:30.140 --> 00:07:32.190
  • So that's when it first started.
  • 00:07:32.200 --> 00:07:34.270
  • I believe that I wasn't judging him.
  • 00:07:34.280 --> 00:07:37.180
  • I didn't want to judge him or anything and so I stuck with him
  • 00:07:37.190 --> 00:07:41.180
  • through everything; through the drug abuse,
  • 00:07:41.190 --> 00:07:43.180
  • through him missing, me losing my home because of his issues.
  • 00:07:43.190 --> 00:07:48.240
  • And I just stuck with it and I just--I mean,
  • 00:07:48.250 --> 00:07:52.040
  • to this day I know it's God, but naturally it's
  • 00:07:52.050 --> 00:07:54.230
  • just eating me up.
  • 00:07:54.240 --> 00:07:56.180
  • Like, there's no way that I'm still here.
  • 00:07:56.190 --> 00:07:58.230
  • Creflo: So let's talk naturally just for a moment.
  • 00:07:58.240 --> 00:08:02.220
  • What do you need naturally?
  • 00:08:02.230 --> 00:08:06.090
  • 'Cause that's okay.
  • 00:08:06.100 --> 00:08:07.230
  • Sometimes we focus so much on spiritual things we act like
  • 00:08:07.240 --> 00:08:11.090
  • natural things aren't real.
  • 00:08:11.100 --> 00:08:13.060
  • It's the same thing with being Christians.
  • 00:08:13.070 --> 00:08:15.220
  • Sometimes Christians are so spiritual they don't even
  • 00:08:15.230 --> 00:08:17.270
  • know how to live life.
  • 00:08:17.280 --> 00:08:19.110
  • They don't understand that--I understand that
  • 00:08:19.120 --> 00:08:21.110
  • we're born again people.
  • 00:08:21.120 --> 00:08:23.080
  • I'm a human.
  • 00:08:23.090 --> 00:08:24.180
  • I'm a born again human, but I'm still a human and as people,
  • 00:08:24.190 --> 00:08:28.020
  • we need to learn how to do natural things because we're in
  • 00:08:28.030 --> 00:08:32.090
  • this natural realm.
  • 00:08:32.100 --> 00:08:33.190
  • So if we look at it just for a moment from that perspective,
  • 00:08:33.200 --> 00:08:37.010
  • could you say to me and Tim what is it that you need in the
  • 00:08:37.020 --> 00:08:42.250
  • natural from him, from this marriage in
  • 00:08:42.260 --> 00:08:47.020
  • order for it to work?
  • 00:08:47.030 --> 00:08:48.290
  • Amber: My husband actually, you know,
  • 00:08:49.000 --> 00:08:51.240
  • not spiritual 'cause I know he's got that,
  • 00:08:51.250 --> 00:08:53.170
  • but natural the love of a husband,
  • 00:08:53.180 --> 00:08:55.190
  • the love of a father, the passion.
  • 00:08:55.200 --> 00:08:57.220
  • Creflo: Is it time?
  • 00:08:57.230 --> 00:08:59.020
  • Amber: It's not really time because he'll give me the time,
  • 00:08:59.030 --> 00:09:01.170
  • but it's not like it's a--it's like we're more friends.
  • 00:09:01.180 --> 00:09:05.250
  • Creflo: Okay, so I want you to be specific.
  • 00:09:05.260 --> 00:09:07.230
  • What do you need from him as your husband?
  • 00:09:07.240 --> 00:09:11.120
  • Amber: To treat me affectionately.
  • 00:09:11.130 --> 00:09:14.190
  • You know, affection.
  • 00:09:14.200 --> 00:09:15.290
  • Creflo: Which is the number one need for a woman.
  • 00:09:16.000 --> 00:09:18.110
  • Amber: Yeah, number one, you know,
  • 00:09:18.120 --> 00:09:19.230
  • because, you know, with him doing the things that he does,
  • 00:09:19.240 --> 00:09:21.160
  • it's like, "Well, maybe it's me.
  • 00:09:21.170 --> 00:09:23.010
  • Maybe he doesn't love me.
  • 00:09:23.020 --> 00:09:24.110
  • He's just here," you know.
  • 00:09:24.120 --> 00:09:25.240
  • And support, support me in things that
  • 00:09:25.250 --> 00:09:29.000
  • I want to do, my dreams.
  • 00:09:29.010 --> 00:09:30.140
  • You know, I had my own company a few years ago,
  • 00:09:30.150 --> 00:09:34.090
  • and I when I met him, shut it down to follow him.
  • 00:09:34.100 --> 00:09:37.200
  • So it's just--you know, I want him to support me and the things
  • 00:09:37.210 --> 00:09:42.180
  • that I want to do.
  • 00:09:42.190 --> 00:09:44.060
  • Creflo: It sounds to me that I can put those two things into
  • 00:09:44.070 --> 00:09:46.130
  • one word: value.
  • 00:09:46.140 --> 00:09:48.100
  • Do you feel like over the years you've been devalued?
  • 00:09:48.110 --> 00:09:51.020
  • Amber: Yes.
  • 00:09:51.030 --> 00:09:52.120
  • Creflo: We have to learn how to value people.
  • 00:09:52.130 --> 00:09:55.110
  • You know, Taffi and I believe in biblical equality.
  • 00:09:55.120 --> 00:09:58.040
  • We believe that marriage is a partnership.
  • 00:09:58.050 --> 00:10:00.090
  • We don't believe that one person,
  • 00:10:00.100 --> 00:10:02.290
  • the man, gets to dominate and the woman gets
  • 00:10:03.000 --> 00:10:05.270
  • to just do whatever.
  • 00:10:05.280 --> 00:10:07.200
  • We believe that submission is both of our responsibility,
  • 00:10:07.210 --> 00:10:11.050
  • submitting yourself one to another,
  • 00:10:11.060 --> 00:10:13.010
  • and that we want to submit--I want to submit to her dreams,
  • 00:10:13.020 --> 00:10:17.190
  • visions, and her abilities to do things as well because a lot of
  • 00:10:17.200 --> 00:10:23.190
  • women are suffering today.
  • 00:10:23.200 --> 00:10:25.090
  • They have anointings and abilities to do things,
  • 00:10:25.100 --> 00:10:27.040
  • but it's just not respected.
  • 00:10:27.050 --> 00:10:28.210
  • Nobody wants to submit to it and it devalues you as if the only
  • 00:10:28.220 --> 00:10:32.150
  • place in your life is to be there for that man and support
  • 00:10:32.160 --> 00:10:36.120
  • him, but it is a equal partnership.
  • 00:10:36.130 --> 00:10:38.150
  • No more male and female, but in Christ there is equality.
  • 00:10:38.160 --> 00:10:42.030
  • And so in this partnership, we're talking about,
  • 00:10:42.040 --> 00:10:44.180
  • from a man's perspective, being willing to add value and to
  • 00:10:44.190 --> 00:10:50.030
  • bring value to your wife.
  • 00:10:50.040 --> 00:10:51.230
  • Nobody wants to continue to be with anybody and feel devalued.
  • 00:10:51.240 --> 00:10:57.270
  • I think that's so important to realize.
  • 00:10:57.280 --> 00:11:00.160
  • And so sometimes we search to try to discover those things
  • 00:11:00.170 --> 00:11:05.070
  • and the little secret answer to making it happen.
  • 00:11:05.080 --> 00:11:08.100
  • I can tell you right now, nobody--and eventually the man
  • 00:11:08.110 --> 00:11:12.090
  • too, nobody wants to be in a situation where it is--where
  • 00:11:12.100 --> 00:11:16.290
  • they feel constantly devalued.
  • 00:11:17.000 --> 00:11:20.030
  • And so if you start right there, Tim,
  • 00:11:20.040 --> 00:11:22.170
  • with the commitment of "Everything I do,
  • 00:11:22.180 --> 00:11:27.060
  • I will do it to add value to my wife."
  • 00:11:27.070 --> 00:11:30.250
  • It is not just you have a call on your life.
  • 00:11:30.260 --> 00:11:34.160
  • She has one, too.
  • 00:11:34.170 --> 00:11:35.260
  • And the beautiful thing about it is the call in her life and the
  • 00:11:35.270 --> 00:11:39.140
  • call in your life if it's respected in a partnership
  • 00:11:39.150 --> 00:11:43.160
  • is going to create an awesome call together
  • 00:11:43.170 --> 00:11:47.100
  • without all of it not being on your shoulder
  • 00:11:47.110 --> 00:11:50.080
  • and all of that not being on her shoulder.
  • 00:11:50.090 --> 00:11:52.200
  • I thought it was ridiculous for me to leave my family for almost
  • 00:11:52.210 --> 00:11:56.040
  • a month when my wife was pregnant with my first daughter
  • 00:11:56.050 --> 00:11:59.260
  • because somebody said that's what you do in the ministry.
  • 00:11:59.270 --> 00:12:03.250
  • I would never recommend for people to do that right now.
  • 00:12:03.260 --> 00:12:06.240
  • If I had to do that all over again,
  • 00:12:06.250 --> 00:12:08.080
  • I would say, "I apologize, but I can't do that.
  • 00:12:08.090 --> 00:12:10.070
  • I value my wife enough to be around just in case she needs
  • 00:12:10.080 --> 00:12:15.240
  • me, to be there for her, to walk through
  • 00:12:15.250 --> 00:12:18.080
  • her with that situation."
  • 00:12:18.090 --> 00:12:20.020
  • And you know what?
  • 00:12:20.030 --> 00:12:21.120
  • I think heaven applause that kind of thing.
  • 00:12:21.130 --> 00:12:23.240
  • And we've got to be careful of the laws that are put on us
  • 00:12:23.250 --> 00:12:26.200
  • through ministry as if that is an excuse to avoid valuing the
  • 00:12:26.210 --> 00:12:33.180
  • people that you say you love.
  • 00:12:33.190 --> 00:12:36.070
  • For example, she is very talented to run a business.
  • 00:12:36.080 --> 00:12:39.110
  • She should have never closed that business so she can do what
  • 00:12:39.120 --> 00:12:42.270
  • you want her to do and not have a say so about
  • 00:12:42.280 --> 00:12:47.260
  • what she wanted to do.
  • 00:12:47.270 --> 00:12:49.230
  • In a marriage relationship, it works because we're partners.
  • 00:12:49.240 --> 00:12:54.070
  • We're equal partners.
  • 00:12:54.080 --> 00:12:55.170
  • We've made a decision to value one another.
  • 00:12:55.180 --> 00:12:58.010
  • Submission is both of our parts.
  • 00:12:58.020 --> 00:13:00.060
  • And how she treats you is none of your business,
  • 00:13:00.070 --> 00:13:04.270
  • your business is how you treat her.
  • 00:13:04.280 --> 00:13:06.260
  • And how he treats you is none of your business,
  • 00:13:06.270 --> 00:13:08.270
  • your business is how you treat him.
  • 00:13:08.280 --> 00:13:10.100
  • It is staying out of the center that helps you not to develop
  • 00:13:10.110 --> 00:13:14.170
  • the very root of self-centeredness,
  • 00:13:14.180 --> 00:13:17.060
  • which is bitterness, and self-centeredness
  • 00:13:17.070 --> 00:13:19.050
  • will create bitterness.
  • 00:13:19.060 --> 00:13:21.040
  • And if you're the only one that's concerned about
  • 00:13:21.050 --> 00:13:23.240
  • what--about you and what about your ministry and now all of a
  • 00:13:23.250 --> 00:13:27.190
  • sudden nobody matters in life except you,
  • 00:13:27.200 --> 00:13:31.160
  • what happens is the wife grows up devalued,
  • 00:13:31.170 --> 00:13:35.240
  • the children are devalued, and as the marriage goes on and the
  • 00:13:35.250 --> 00:13:40.150
  • children get older, you become despised.
  • 00:13:40.160 --> 00:13:43.130
  • And you're someone that carry the Bible,
  • 00:13:43.140 --> 00:13:46.130
  • carrying the Word and you preach it because this is what you
  • 00:13:46.140 --> 00:13:50.020
  • thought you were supposed to do, but you've got to be the man of
  • 00:13:50.030 --> 00:13:54.070
  • God in the house and with your wife,
  • 00:13:54.080 --> 00:13:57.190
  • and that is the first assignment,
  • 00:13:57.200 --> 00:13:59.140
  • that is the first church; and when that is taken care of,
  • 00:13:59.150 --> 00:14:02.090
  • then when it's time to go out, you go out with the support and
  • 00:14:02.100 --> 00:14:06.040
  • the cheers of the family that says,
  • 00:14:06.050 --> 00:14:09.060
  • "That's my dad.
  • 00:14:09.070 --> 00:14:10.160
  • That's my husband.
  • 00:14:10.170 --> 00:14:11.270
  • He makes me feel good and valued.
  • 00:14:11.280 --> 00:14:13.180
  • I want to make him feel good and valued."
  • 00:14:13.190 --> 00:14:16.140
  • That's so important, so important.
  • 00:14:16.150 --> 00:14:20.210
  • Anthony Adams: Hey, everyone.
  • 00:14:21.190 --> 00:14:22.280
  • Pastor Anthony Adams here, the senior youth pastor
  • 00:14:22.290 --> 00:14:24.110
  • of World Changers Church International.
  • 00:14:24.120 --> 00:14:25.210
  • I'm so excited to let you know the Grace Life Youth Conference
  • 00:14:25.220 --> 00:14:28.150
  • is gearing up July 8th through the 12th and we want to be sure

  • that you're in the building.

  • This is a youth conference you do not want to miss.
  • 00:14:32.180 --> 00:14:34.250
  • What I can personally guarantee is the life-changing Word of God
  • 00:14:34.260 --> 00:14:37.260
  • will be taught with simplicity and understanding,
  • 00:14:37.270 --> 00:14:39.220
  • making a mark that will never be erased in the life of your young
  • 00:14:39.230 --> 00:14:42.160
  • person or even you.
  • 00:14:42.170 --> 00:14:43.260
  • We'll also have everything from live musical performances,
  • 00:14:43.270 --> 00:14:46.060
  • exciting games, delicious food, and huge giveaways.
  • 00:14:46.070 --> 00:14:49.240
  • This year's speaker lineup is on fire from my friends and family
  • 00:14:49.250 --> 00:14:52.280

  • 00:14:55.250 --> 00:14:58.210
  • Robert Taylor, and myself, Anthony Adams.
  • 00:14:58.220 --> 00:15:01.060
  • But wait, there's more.
  • 00:15:01.070 --> 00:15:02.160
  • Of course we'll have a very special all-males lions' den
  • 00:15:02.170 --> 00:15:04.250
  • session with Gary Davis of Next Level Boys Academy and an all
  • 00:15:04.260 --> 00:15:08.050
  • females pretty girls rock session with Constance Adams
  • 00:15:08.060 --> 00:15:10.180
  • and some of her amazing friends.
  • 00:15:10.190 --> 00:15:12.140
  • It all happens July 8th through the 12th.
  • 00:15:12.150 --> 00:15:15.020
  • That's five days of passion sparking,
  • 00:15:15.030 --> 00:15:16.140
  • life-changing impact.
  • 00:15:16.150 --> 00:15:18.130
  • Don't delay and register today.
  • 00:15:18.140 --> 00:15:20.130
  • Creflo: People that feel devalued in a sense they
  • 00:15:21.160 --> 00:15:24.260
  • feel out of breath.
  • 00:15:24.270 --> 00:15:29.020
  • They feel hopeless.
  • 00:15:29.030 --> 00:15:31.130
  • Or that can all turn into anger.
  • 00:15:31.140 --> 00:15:34.180
  • It's a situation that children with single parents go through.
  • 00:15:34.190 --> 00:15:38.250
  • Husbands go through it.
  • 00:15:38.260 --> 00:15:40.250
  • Wives go through it, but it's something that can be repaired
  • 00:15:40.260 --> 00:15:44.230
  • because devaluing someone also means you don't take into
  • 00:15:44.240 --> 00:15:49.270
  • consideration that what you do impacts them.
  • 00:15:49.280 --> 00:15:54.190
  • I don't want to do something that's going to negatively
  • 00:15:54.200 --> 00:15:57.260
  • impact my family.
  • 00:15:57.270 --> 00:15:59.250
  • I want to make sure that I protect them,
  • 00:15:59.260 --> 00:16:02.180
  • that I always do something to make them feel valued.
  • 00:16:02.190 --> 00:16:06.190
  • Somebody says, "Well, what about me then?
  • 00:16:06.200 --> 00:16:07.290
  • Because that was my concern.
  • 00:16:08.000 --> 00:16:09.110
  • Well, what about me?
  • 00:16:09.120 --> 00:16:10.210
  • Here I am, I'm out here doing this.
  • 00:16:10.220 --> 00:16:12.090
  • I'm doing this all for y'all."
  • 00:16:12.100 --> 00:16:14.100
  • No, I wasn't doing it for me.
  • 00:16:14.110 --> 00:16:15.220
  • 'Cause if I was doing it for them,
  • 00:16:15.230 --> 00:16:17.070
  • I would have allowed them to have a say so in it,
  • 00:16:17.080 --> 00:16:20.090
  • to have a part in it so that as partners,
  • 00:16:20.100 --> 00:16:22.230
  • we're coming together in partnership to do this thing
  • 00:16:22.240 --> 00:16:25.140
  • together and so we can both together give glory to God.
  • 00:16:25.150 --> 00:16:29.010
  • I didn't know any better.
  • 00:16:29.020 --> 00:16:30.270
  • I just did what I thought was the right thing to do at that
  • 00:16:30.280 --> 00:16:33.270
  • time and I can't blame anybody for it.
  • 00:16:33.280 --> 00:16:35.200
  • But you know what?
  • 00:16:35.210 --> 00:16:37.000
  • Now you do know better and there's some things
  • 00:16:37.010 --> 00:16:39.140
  • you can do better.
  • 00:16:39.150 --> 00:16:41.030
  • And see, what she said--I want to make sure you heard.
  • 00:16:41.040 --> 00:16:45.090
  • She said, "This is what I need and for this--in order for this
  • 00:16:45.100 --> 00:16:49.020
  • marriage to work.
  • 00:16:49.030 --> 00:16:50.140
  • This is what I need."
  • 00:16:50.150 --> 00:16:51.240
  • And that may mean coming together--and it sounds corny,
  • 00:16:51.250 --> 00:16:54.290
  • but coming together and both of you writing down what you need
  • 00:16:55.000 --> 00:16:58.090
  • in order for this marriage to work,
  • 00:16:58.100 --> 00:17:00.220
  • and you don't have to agree with it.
  • 00:17:00.230 --> 00:17:02.270
  • It's not, "Well--" You know, she says what she needs and then
  • 00:17:02.280 --> 00:17:05.160
  • there's an argument and there's a debate over it.
  • 00:17:05.170 --> 00:17:07.170
  • There's no debate about it. It's just real simple.
  • 00:17:07.180 --> 00:17:09.250
  • "In order for this marriage to work, this is what I need.
  • 00:17:09.260 --> 00:17:11.290
  • You either going to do it or not."
  • 00:17:12.000 --> 00:17:13.250
  • And when you do that, you take away the emotional fight that is
  • 00:17:13.260 --> 00:17:19.000
  • struggling to figure out exactly what is this thing and you
  • 00:17:19.010 --> 00:17:23.290
  • just make your mind up.
  • 00:17:24.000 --> 00:17:25.140
  • "I am going to be a real man," and a real man is
  • 00:17:25.150 --> 00:17:28.230
  • a man who will sacrificially serve.
  • 00:17:28.240 --> 00:17:31.170
  • A real man sacrificially serve.
  • 00:17:31.180 --> 00:17:33.170
  • Now, it seems like, "You know, dude,
  • 00:17:33.180 --> 00:17:35.260
  • you're just telling me everything I need to do.
  • 00:17:35.270 --> 00:17:37.090
  • Well, what about her?"
  • 00:17:37.100 --> 00:17:38.190
  • See, here's the awesome thing.
  • 00:17:38.200 --> 00:17:39.290
  • This woman, the natural seed is planted on the inside of her,
  • 00:17:40.000 --> 00:17:43.090
  • but also these other seeds are planted on the inside of her and
  • 00:17:43.100 --> 00:17:45.260
  • out of her will come the harvest of what you plant.
  • 00:17:45.270 --> 00:17:49.150
  • You don't have to worry about it coming.
  • 00:17:49.160 --> 00:17:51.000
  • It becomes the harvest of what you plant.
  • 00:17:51.010 --> 00:17:52.230
  • And then what you just--you guys remind yourself,
  • 00:17:52.240 --> 00:17:54.190
  • "We're equal partners."
  • 00:17:54.200 --> 00:17:56.060
  • and ask yourself, "All right, is this equal partnership or is it
  • 00:17:56.070 --> 00:17:58.220
  • me trying to dominate?"
  • 00:17:58.230 --> 00:18:01.000
  • God allowed us to dominate the world and all animals in it
  • 00:18:01.010 --> 00:18:03.230
  • but never one another.
  • 00:18:03.240 --> 00:18:05.120
  • What he wants to know is, can you keep yourself out of the
  • 00:18:05.130 --> 00:18:09.170
  • center and keep each other in the center so that bitterness
  • 00:18:09.180 --> 00:18:13.120
  • can never be a part of this marriage?
  • 00:18:13.130 --> 00:18:16.010
  • Tim, it's not too late.
  • 00:18:16.020 --> 00:18:18.130
  • God knows how to reach down in a pit and pull you up out of a pit
  • 00:18:18.140 --> 00:18:23.040
  • and put you on a solid ground and guarantee you that
  • 00:18:23.050 --> 00:18:26.160
  • everything that you ever want to see come to pass will come to
  • 00:18:26.170 --> 00:18:29.060
  • pass and you will have a greater testimony,
  • 00:18:29.070 --> 00:18:31.190
  • you will have a greater ministry,
  • 00:18:31.200 --> 00:18:33.130
  • and he doesn't mind you doing the things you want to do.
  • 00:18:33.140 --> 00:18:36.210
  • Please understand God puts the desire in your heart.
  • 00:18:36.220 --> 00:18:39.090
  • He will take away the old want-tos and
  • 00:18:39.100 --> 00:18:41.110
  • give you a new want-to.
  • 00:18:41.120 --> 00:18:42.280
  • It's okay to go to Florida, have a vacation,
  • 00:18:42.290 --> 00:18:45.120
  • spend time with the kids.
  • 00:18:45.130 --> 00:18:46.220
  • It's okay to play some cards, man,
  • 00:18:46.230 --> 00:18:49.140
  • and have a good time and laugh.
  • 00:18:49.150 --> 00:18:51.190
  • It's okay to dance and listen to Lou Rawls in your bedroom.
  • 00:18:51.200 --> 00:18:55.010
  • It's okay for all of that kind of stuff.
  • 00:18:55.020 --> 00:18:57.160
  • It's learning how to live life, and it's okay with God.
  • 00:18:57.170 --> 00:19:05.180
  • These relationships can work.
  • 00:19:05.190 --> 00:19:08.120
  • I believe in going into the nitty gritty of it.
  • 00:19:08.130 --> 00:19:10.090
  • She just said what she need.
  • 00:19:10.100 --> 00:19:13.060
  • You don't even have to go home and wonder about that anymore.
  • 00:19:13.070 --> 00:19:15.200
  • All you have to do is look--you can see the
  • 00:19:15.210 --> 00:19:18.220
  • areas where it was devaluing.
  • 00:19:18.230 --> 00:19:23.010
  • You can go back 17 years and see the areas where devaluing.
  • 00:19:23.020 --> 00:19:26.060
  • You can go and look at--you know,
  • 00:19:26.070 --> 00:19:28.190
  • even though the kid says all right,
  • 00:19:28.200 --> 00:19:30.100
  • then mommy has to be devalued to figure out
  • 00:19:30.110 --> 00:19:32.180
  • how to take care of the kids.
  • 00:19:32.190 --> 00:19:34.060
  • The kids want you.
  • 00:19:34.070 --> 00:19:37.010
  • It's a time that you'll never be able to get
  • 00:19:37.020 --> 00:19:40.080
  • back if you don't do it right.
  • 00:19:40.090 --> 00:19:42.030
  • Ministry will be there, people will be there,
  • 00:19:42.040 --> 00:19:46.030
  • but my family I get one shot to make them
  • 00:19:46.040 --> 00:19:48.090
  • feel like who they are.
  • 00:19:48.100 --> 00:19:50.190
  • This is workable.
  • 00:19:50.200 --> 00:19:52.090
  • This can be put together and give you a testimony and a
  • 00:19:52.100 --> 00:19:57.080
  • ministry to help other people who have gone through the--going
  • 00:19:57.090 --> 00:20:00.260
  • through the same hurt, the abusing of one another,
  • 00:20:00.270 --> 00:20:04.020
  • the pain, the devaluing and you can become a champion to see
  • 00:20:04.030 --> 00:20:08.080
  • lives restored in the grace of God for Jesus Christ.
  • 00:20:08.090 --> 00:20:12.230
  • Y'all love each other, and you heard what she said she needed.
  • 00:20:12.240 --> 00:20:18.050
  • Okay, this is what she need for this marriage to work.
  • 00:20:18.060 --> 00:20:20.160
  • You figure it out.
  • 00:20:20.170 --> 00:20:22.140
  • You figure out to do what you need to do.
  • 00:20:22.150 --> 00:20:24.140
  • She's the number one priority in your life.
  • 00:20:24.150 --> 00:20:28.190
  • And I'm telling you, God will endorse it and you don't have to
  • 00:20:28.200 --> 00:20:33.170
  • work hard to try to do things.
  • 00:20:33.180 --> 00:20:35.140
  • That was my biggest problem; working hard trying to do what
  • 00:20:35.150 --> 00:20:37.090
  • Jesus has already done.
  • 00:20:37.100 --> 00:20:38.220
  • I had to learn how to enter into his rest
  • 00:20:38.230 --> 00:20:41.230
  • and labor to stay at rest.
  • 00:20:41.240 --> 00:20:44.080
  • Birth versus laboring to try to do something and I had to come
  • 00:20:44.090 --> 00:20:46.200
  • to the point where I was satisfied with Creflo Dollar.
  • 00:20:46.210 --> 00:20:49.090
  • "Whatever God wants to do, I'm satisfied with who I am.
  • 00:20:49.100 --> 00:20:52.160
  • I'm not comparing myself with somebody else.
  • 00:20:52.170 --> 00:20:54.260
  • I don't feel bad, feel like I got to be as
  • 00:20:54.270 --> 00:20:56.060
  • sharp as the next guy."
  • 00:20:56.070 --> 00:20:57.190
  • That's one of the reasons why I changed my dress a little bit
  • 00:20:57.200 --> 00:21:00.160
  • just to demonstrate to the world that I am all right
  • 00:21:00.170 --> 00:21:02.290
  • with being who I am and I don't have to imitate anybody else.
  • 00:21:03.000 --> 00:21:07.140
  • I'm okay.

  • be all right with who God made you.
  • 00:21:10.090 --> 00:21:12.090
  • God made you the authentic you.

  • There's only one person in the world that has your fingerprint.
  • 00:21:14.170 --> 00:21:17.100
  • Be okay with who you are.
  • 00:21:17.110 --> 00:21:19.050
  • Learn how to be happy with who you are.
  • 00:21:19.060 --> 00:21:21.020
  • Learn how to live life.
  • 00:21:21.030 --> 00:21:22.250
  • Go on a beach, get a blow pop, have a good time,
  • 00:21:22.260 --> 00:21:25.290
  • and learn how to enjoy life with your family
  • 00:21:26.000 --> 00:21:28.170
  • and quit all of this stuff.
  • 00:21:28.180 --> 00:21:30.180

  • 00:21:36.280 --> 00:21:39.290
  • I want you to know I'm sorry.

  • I love you more than anything.
  • 00:21:44.290 --> 00:21:47.250
  • I love my children.
  • 00:21:47.260 --> 00:21:49.050
  • I love the family that God has given me.
  • 00:21:49.060 --> 00:21:51.060
  • I know right now in this season I feel like I don't deserve you
  • 00:21:51.070 --> 00:21:54.140
  • guys, but I'm willing to do whatever to make this work,
  • 00:21:54.150 --> 00:22:01.240
  • and I want you to know I will value you for the rest of my
  • 00:22:01.250 --> 00:22:04.230

  • And thank you for taking it in, stand there with me,

  • and praying me through all of that junk because I know that

  • you were praying at home.
  • 00:22:20.240 --> 00:22:23.150

  • Creflo: Right here on "Your World."

  • And that's a strong, radical commitment you just made.

  • Because if you've had any issues with drugs,

  • one of the things that would be good is to go through the Zone.
  • 00:22:44.200 --> 00:22:49.120

  • the disease of addiction.
  • 00:23:00.120 --> 00:23:03.130
  • You want to do everything to make everybody feel good
  • 00:23:03.140 --> 00:23:06.120
  • because as a minister, people have to first of
  • 00:23:06.130 --> 00:23:10.060
  • all deal with the fact, "Well, that's a preacher.
  • 00:23:10.070 --> 00:23:12.050
  • Now I'm picking up the wrong thing."
  • 00:23:12.060 --> 00:23:14.090
  • And if they move the preacher out of the way,
  • 00:23:14.100 --> 00:23:16.030
  • they can see a whole lot of signs.
