  • IF YOU'RE EVER IN OUR AREA
  • 00:00:17.190 --> 00:00:18.120
  • PLEASE STOP BY. THESE ARE THE
  • 00:00:18.120 --> 00:00:19.200
  • FINEST PEOPLE IN ALL OF
  • 00:00:19.200 --> 00:00:21.170
  • HOUSTON, TEXAS RIGHT HERE AT
  • 00:00:21.170 --> 00:00:22.140
  • LAKEWOOD. WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE
  • 00:00:22.140 --> 00:00:23.130
  • YOU VISIT. (APPLAUSE)

  • BUT THANKS FOR TUNING IN. THANK
  • 00:00:25.200 --> 00:00:26.100
  • YOU AGAIN FOR COMING OUT TODAY.
  • 00:00:26.100 --> 00:00:28.150
  • I LIKE TO START WITH SOMETHING
  • 00:00:28.150 --> 00:00:29.150
  • FUNNY. I HEARD ABOUT THIS
  • 00:00:29.150 --> 00:00:30.150
  • COLLEGE PROFESSOR.
  • 00:00:30.150 --> 00:00:31.160
  • HE WAS GOING TO PROVE TO HIS
  • 00:00:31.160 --> 00:00:32.230
  • CLASS THAT THERE IS NO GOD.
  • 00:00:32.230 --> 00:00:35.130
  • HE SAID, "GOD, IF YOU'RE REAL
  • 00:00:35.130 --> 00:00:37.200
  • THEN KNOCK ME OFF THIS PLATFORM.
  • 00:00:37.200 --> 00:00:39.140
  • I'M GIVING YOU FIFTEEN MINUTES
  • 00:00:39.140 --> 00:00:40.180
  • TO DO IT."
  • 00:00:40.180 --> 00:00:41.230
  • WITH EVERY MINUTE THAT WENT BY
  • 00:00:41.230 --> 00:00:42.220
  • HE TAUNTED GOD, "I'M STILL HERE
  • 00:00:42.220 --> 00:00:44.030
  • GOD. I'M WAITING."
  • 00:00:44.030 --> 00:00:46.000
  • AT THE LAST MINUTE A 300-POUND
  • 00:00:46.000 --> 00:00:47.170
  • FOOTBALL PLAYER WALKING DOWN
  • 00:00:47.170 --> 00:00:50.050
  • THE HALLWAY OVERHEARD HIM, CAME
  • 00:00:50.050 --> 00:00:51.170
  • RUNNING TOWARD HIM FULL FORCE,
  • 00:00:51.170 --> 00:00:53.190
  • PUT HIS SHOULDER DOWN, KNOCKED
  • 00:00:53.190 --> 00:00:54.190
  • THE PROFESSOR, SENT HIM FLYING
  • 00:00:54.190 --> 00:00:56.120
  • OFF THE PLATFORM. THE PROFESSOR
  • 00:00:56.120 --> 00:00:58.080
  • GOT UP IN A DAZE AND SAID,
  • 00:00:58.080 --> 00:00:59.150
  • "WHAT IN THE WORLD DID YOU DO
  • 00:00:59.150 --> 00:01:00.160
  • THAT FOR?"
  • 00:01:00.160 --> 00:01:01.140
  • THE FOOTBALL PLAYER REPLIED,
  • 00:01:01.140 --> 00:01:02.090
  • "GOD SAID HE WAS BUSY SO HE SENT
  • 00:01:02.090 --> 00:01:03.220
  • ME." (LAUGHTER/APPLAUSE)
  • 00:01:03.220 --> 00:01:06.210
  • HOLD YOUR BIBLE UP. SAY IT LIKE
  • 00:01:06.210 --> 00:01:07.210
  • YOU MEAN IT.
  • 00:01:07.210 --> 00:01:09.160
  • THIS IS MY BIBLE.
  • 00:01:09.160 --> 00:01:10.250
  • I AM WHAT IT SAYS I AM.
  • 00:01:10.250 --> 00:01:12.060
  • I HAVE WHAT IT SAYS I HAVE.
  • 00:01:12.060 --> 00:01:13.130
  • I CAN DO WHAT IT SAYS I CAN DO.
  • 00:01:13.130 --> 00:01:15.140
  • TODAY I WILL BE TAUGHT
  • 00:01:15.140 --> 00:01:16.140
  • THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:01:16.140 --> 00:01:17.290
  • I BOLDLY CONFESS:
  • 00:01:17.290 --> 00:01:19.170
  • MY MIND IS ALERT.
  • 00:01:19.170 --> 00:01:20.290
  • MY HEART IS RECEPTIVE.
  • 00:01:20.290 --> 00:01:22.090
  • I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.
  • 00:01:22.090 --> 00:01:23.270
  • IN JESUS' NAME. GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:01:24.210 --> 00:01:27.210
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY
  • 00:01:27.210 --> 00:01:28.130
  • ABOUT MOVING FORWARD. IT'S EASY
  • 00:01:28.130 --> 00:01:30.180
  • TO GO THROUGH LIFE LOOKING IN
  • 00:01:30.180 --> 00:01:33.000
  • THE REAR VIEW MIRROR, FOCUSED
  • 00:01:33.000 --> 00:01:34.260
  • ON WHAT DIDN'T WORK OUT, ON WHO
  • 00:01:34.260 --> 00:01:36.080
  • HURT US, ON THE MISTAKES WE'VE
  • 00:01:36.080 --> 00:01:37.230
  • MADE.
  • 00:01:37.230 --> 00:01:39.120
  • "IF ONLY I WOULD HAVE FINISHED
  • 00:01:39.120 --> 00:01:40.200
  • COLLEGE."
  • 00:01:40.200 --> 00:01:41.210
  • "IF ONLY I WOULD HAVE SPENT MORE
  • 00:01:41.210 --> 00:01:42.260
  • TIME WITH MY CHILDREN."
  • 00:01:42.260 --> 00:01:44.160
  • "IF ONLY THAT COMPANY WOULDN'T
  • 00:01:44.160 --> 00:01:46.010
  • HAVE LAID ME OFF AFTER 20 YEARS.
  • 00:01:46.010 --> 00:01:48.060
  • THAT'S JUST NOT RIGHT."
  • 00:01:48.060 --> 00:01:50.000
  • BUT AS LONG AS YOU'RE LIVING IN
  • 00:01:50.000 --> 00:01:51.060
  • REGRETS, FOCUSED ON THE NEGATIVE
  • 00:01:51.060 --> 00:01:53.140
  • THINGS OF THE PAST, IT'S GOING
  • 00:01:53.140 --> 00:01:55.030
  • TO KEEP YOU FROM THE BRIGHT
  • 00:01:55.030 --> 00:01:56.140
  • FUTURE GOD HAS IN STORE.
  • 00:01:56.140 --> 00:01:58.050
  • YOU'VE GOT TO LET GO OF WHAT
  • 00:01:58.050 --> 00:01:59.140
  • DIDN'T WORK OUT. LET GO OF THE
  • 00:01:59.140 --> 00:02:01.290
  • HURTS AND PAINS. LET GO OF YOUR
  • 00:02:01.290 --> 00:02:04.030
  • DISAPPOINTMENTS, YOUR FAILURES.
  • 00:02:04.030 --> 00:02:06.220
  • YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT THE
  • 00:02:06.220 --> 00:02:07.280
  • PAST BUT YOU CAN DO SOMETHING
  • 00:02:07.280 --> 00:02:10.120
  • ABOUT RIGHT NOW. WHETHER IT
  • 00:02:10.120 --> 00:02:12.220
  • HAPPENED 20 YEARS AGO OR
  • 00:02:12.220 --> 00:02:14.020
  • 20 MINUTES AGO LET IT GO AND
  • 00:02:14.040 --> 00:02:17.040
  • MOVE FORWARD. IF YOU KEEP
  • 00:02:17.040 --> 00:02:19.000
  • BRINGING NEGATIVE BAGGAGE FROM
  • 00:02:19.000 --> 00:02:20.130
  • YESTERDAY INTO TODAY IT WILL
  • 00:02:20.130 --> 00:02:22.260
  • POISON YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:02:22.260 --> 00:02:24.220
  • YOU MAY HAVE HAD AN UNFAIR PAST.
  • 00:02:24.220 --> 00:02:27.000
  • I'M NOT DEBATING THAT. WHAT
  • 00:02:27.000 --> 00:02:28.040
  • I'M SAYING IS YOU DON'T HAVE TO
  • 00:02:28.040 --> 00:02:30.030
  • HAVE AN UNFAIR FUTURE.
  • 00:02:30.030 --> 00:02:32.020
  • YOU MAY HAVE GOTTEN OFF TO A
  • 00:02:32.020 --> 00:02:33.060
  • ROUGH START IN LIFE BUT IT'S NOT
  • 00:02:33.060 --> 00:02:34.280
  • HOW YOU START THAT MATTERS.
  • 00:02:34.280 --> 00:02:36.040
  • IT'S HOW YOU FINISH.
  • 00:02:36.040 --> 00:02:38.080
  • DON'T LET WHAT SOMEBODY DID OR
  • 00:02:38.080 --> 00:02:39.220
  • DIDN'T DO FOR YOU BE AN EXCUSE
  • 00:02:39.220 --> 00:02:41.240
  • TO LIVE SOUR. DON'T LET A BAD
  • 00:02:41.240 --> 00:02:43.230
  • BREAK, A DIVORCE, A BETRAYAL,
  • 00:02:43.250 --> 00:02:46.250
  • A BAD CHILDHOOD, CAUSE YOU TO
  • 00:02:46.250 --> 00:02:48.110
  • SETTLE WHERE YOU ARE.
  • 00:02:48.110 --> 00:02:49.250
  • MOVE FORWARD AND GOD WILL PAY
  • 00:02:49.250 --> 00:02:51.030
  • YOU BACK. MOVE FORWARD AND GOD
  • 00:02:51.030 --> 00:02:53.130
  • WILL VINDICATE YOU. MOVE
  • 00:02:53.130 --> 00:02:54.250
  • FORWARD AND YOU'LL COME INTO A
  • 00:02:54.250 --> 00:02:56.070
  • NEW BEGINNING.
  • 00:02:56.070 --> 00:02:57.290
  • NOTHING THAT HAS HAPPENED TO YOU
  • 00:02:57.290 --> 00:02:59.190
  • IS A SURPRISE TO GOD. THE LOSS
  • 00:02:59.190 --> 00:03:01.180
  • OF THAT LOVED ONE DIDN'T CATCH
  • 00:03:01.180 --> 00:03:03.090
  • GOD OFF GUARD. THE BUSINESS
  • 00:03:03.090 --> 00:03:04.280
  • THAT DIDN'T MAKE IT, THE
  • 00:03:04.280 --> 00:03:06.170
  • RELATIONSHIP THAT DIDN'T WORK
  • 00:03:06.170 --> 00:03:07.280
  • OUT, DID NOT STOP GOD'S PLAN
  • 00:03:07.280 --> 00:03:09.170
  • FOR YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:03:09.170 --> 00:03:12.020
  • NOW, THE REAL QUESTION IS ARE
  • 00:03:12.020 --> 00:03:13.140
  • YOU GOING TO GET STUCK, FALL
  • 00:03:13.140 --> 00:03:14.280
  • INTO SELF-PITY, BECOME BITTER,
  • 00:03:14.280 --> 00:03:17.080
  • LET THE PAST POISON YOUR FUTURE?
  • 00:03:17.080 --> 00:03:19.230
  • OR ARE YOU GOING TO SHAKE IT OFF
  • 00:03:19.230 --> 00:03:21.090
  • AND MOVE FORWARD KNOWING THAT
  • 00:03:21.090 --> 00:03:22.210
  • YOUR BEST DAYS ARE STILL UP
  • 00:03:22.210 --> 00:03:24.030
  • AHEAD.
  • 00:03:24.030 --> 00:03:25.210
  • IN YOUR AUTOMOBILE, THERE IS A
  • 00:03:25.210 --> 00:03:27.080
  • BIG WINDSHIELD IN THE FRONT AND
  • 00:03:27.080 --> 00:03:29.020
  • A VERY SMALL REARVIEW MIRROR.
  • 00:03:29.020 --> 00:03:31.220
  • THE REASON THE WINDSHIELD IS SO
  • 00:03:31.220 --> 00:03:32.290
  • LARGE AND THE REARVIEW MIRROR
  • 00:03:32.290 --> 00:03:34.240
  • IS SO SMALL IS BECAUSE WHAT'S
  • 00:03:34.240 --> 00:03:36.230
  • HAPPENED IN YOUR PAST IS NOT
  • 00:03:36.230 --> 00:03:38.210
  • NEARLY AS IMPORTANT AS WHAT'S IN
  • 00:03:38.210 --> 00:03:40.190
  • YOUR FUTURE. WHERE YOU'RE GOING
  • 00:03:41.190 --> 00:03:44.190
  • IS MUCH MORE SIGNIFICANT THAN
  • 00:03:44.190 --> 00:03:45.130
  • WHERE YOU'VE BEEN. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:03:45.130 --> 00:03:47.030
  • BUT IF YOU STAY FOCUSED ON THE
  • 00:03:47.030 --> 00:03:48.090
  • PAST YOU'LL GET STUCK WHERE
  • 00:03:48.090 --> 00:03:50.030
  • YOU ARE. THIS IS THE REASON
  • 00:03:50.030 --> 00:03:51.210
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T HAVE JOY,
  • 00:03:51.210 --> 00:03:53.180
  • NO ENTHUSIASM FOR LIFE.
  • 00:03:53.180 --> 00:03:55.190
  • THEY'RE DRAGGING AROUND ALL THIS
  • 00:03:55.190 --> 00:03:57.000
  • NEGATIVE BAGGAGE FROM THE PAST.
  • 00:03:57.000 --> 00:03:59.160
  • SOMEBODY OFFENDED THEM LAST
  • 00:03:59.160 --> 00:04:01.020
  • WEEK. THEY'VE GOT THAT STUFFED
  • 00:04:01.020 --> 00:04:02.190
  • IN THEIR RESENTMENT BAG.
  • 00:04:02.190 --> 00:04:05.030
  • LAST MONTH THEY LOST THEIR
  • 00:04:05.030 --> 00:04:06.040
  • TEMPER, SAID SOME THINGS THEY
  • 00:04:06.040 --> 00:04:07.080
  • SHOULDN'T HAVE. THEY'VE GOT
  • 00:04:07.080 --> 00:04:08.090
  • THAT IN THEIR GUILT AND
  • 00:04:08.090 --> 00:04:09.140
  • CONDEMNATION BAG.
  • 00:04:09.140 --> 00:04:11.080
  • TEN YEARS AGO THEY LOST A LOVED
  • 00:04:11.080 --> 00:04:13.010
  • ONE. THEY STILL DON'T
  • 00:04:13.010 --> 00:04:14.040
  • UNDERSTAND IT. THEY'VE GOT THAT
  • 00:04:14.040 --> 00:04:15.050
  • HURT AND PAIN IN THEIR
  • 00:04:15.050 --> 00:04:17.200
  • DISAPPOINTMENT BAG.
  • 00:04:17.200 --> 00:04:19.100
  • THEY CARRY AROUND THEIR BAG OF
  • 00:04:19.100 --> 00:04:20.100
  • REGRETS, ALL THE THINGS THEY
  • 00:04:20.100 --> 00:04:21.260
  • WISHED THEY WOULD HAVE DONE
  • 00:04:21.260 --> 00:04:22.230
  • DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:04:22.230 --> 00:04:24.050
  • THEY'VE GOT THEIR DIVORCE IN A
  • 00:04:24.050 --> 00:04:25.070
  • SPECIFIC BAG. BEEN MAD AT THEIR
  • 00:04:25.070 --> 00:04:27.040
  • SPOUSE FOR YEARS. IF THEY WENT
  • 00:04:27.040 --> 00:04:28.240
  • TO TAKE AN AIRLINE FLIGHT THEY
  • 00:04:28.240 --> 00:04:31.010
  • COULDN'T AFFORD IT. THEY'VE GOT
  • 00:04:31.010 --> 00:04:32.120
  • 27 BAGS THEY DRAG AROUND WITH
  • 00:04:32.120 --> 00:04:33.230
  • THEM EVERYWHERE THEY GO.
  • 00:04:33.230 --> 00:04:35.140
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:04:35.140 --> 00:04:36.200
  • FRIENDS, LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO
  • 00:04:36.200 --> 00:04:37.280
  • LIVE THAT WAY. LEARN TO TRAVEL
  • 00:04:37.280 --> 00:04:39.280
  • LIGHT.
  • 00:04:39.280 --> 00:04:42.060
  • EVERY MORNING WHEN YOU FIRST
  • 00:04:42.060 --> 00:04:43.180
  • GET UP, FORGIVE THE PEOPLE THAT
  • 00:04:43.180 --> 00:04:45.160
  • DID YOU WRONG THE DAY BEFORE.
  • 00:04:45.160 --> 00:04:47.180
  • FORGIVE YOUR SPOUSE FOR WHAT
  • 00:04:47.180 --> 00:04:48.280
  • THEY SAID. FORGIVE YOUR BOSS
  • 00:04:48.280 --> 00:04:50.260
  • FOR BEING RUDE. FORGIVE
  • 00:04:50.260 --> 00:04:52.170
  • YOURSELF FOR THE MISTAKES
  • 00:04:52.170 --> 00:04:53.230
  • YOU'VE MADE. AT THE START OF
  • 00:04:53.230 --> 00:04:55.060
  • THE DAY LET GO OF THE
  • 00:04:55.060 --> 00:04:57.010
  • DISAPPOINTMENTS, THE SETBACKS
  • 00:04:57.010 --> 00:04:58.170
  • FROM YESTERDAY. START EVERY
  • 00:04:58.170 --> 00:05:00.130
  • MORNING AFRESH AND ANEW.
  • 00:05:00.190 --> 00:05:03.190
  • GOD DID NOT CREATE YOU TO CARRY
  • 00:05:03.190 --> 00:05:05.100
  • AROUND ALL THAT BAGGAGE.
  • 00:05:05.100 --> 00:05:07.060
  • SOME OF YOU HAVE BEEN HOLDING
  • 00:05:07.060 --> 00:05:08.080
  • ON TO IT FOR YEARS. IT'S NOT
  • 00:05:08.080 --> 00:05:09.220
  • GOING TO CHANGE UNLESS YOU DO
  • 00:05:09.220 --> 00:05:11.170
  • SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
  • 00:05:11.170 --> 00:05:13.220
  • YOU'VE GOT TO PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN
  • 00:05:13.220 --> 00:05:14.150
  • AND SAY, "THAT'S IT. I'M NOT
  • 00:05:14.150 --> 00:05:15.210
  • LIVING IN REGRETS ANYMORE.
  • 00:05:15.210 --> 00:05:17.270
  • I'M NOT FOCUSING ON MY
  • 00:05:17.270 --> 00:05:19.080
  • DISAPPOINTMENTS. I'M NOT
  • 00:05:19.080 --> 00:05:20.140
  • DWELLING ON WHO HURT ME, ON
  • 00:05:20.140 --> 00:05:22.020
  • WHAT DIDN'T WORK OUT. I'M
  • 00:05:22.020 --> 00:05:23.090
  • LETTING IT GO AND MOVING
  • 00:05:23.090 --> 00:05:24.290
  • FORWARD WITH MY LIFE."
  • 00:05:24.290 --> 00:05:27.180
  • SEE, WE SHOULD FOCUS ON WHAT WE
  • 00:05:27.180 --> 00:05:28.270
  • CAN CHANGE; NOT WHAT WE CANNOT
  • 00:05:28.270 --> 00:05:31.040
  • CHANGE. WHAT'S DONE IS DONE.
  • 00:05:31.060 --> 00:05:34.060
  • IF SOMEBODY OFFENDED YOU,
  • 00:05:34.060 --> 00:05:36.000
  • MISTREATED YOU, DISAPPOINTED
  • 00:05:36.000 --> 00:05:37.220
  • YOU, YOU CAN'T UNDO THAT.
  • 00:05:37.220 --> 00:05:39.230
  • YOU CAN EITHER GET BITTER, PACK
  • 00:05:39.230 --> 00:05:41.130
  • IT IN A BAG AND LET IT WEIGH YOU
  • 00:05:41.130 --> 00:05:43.030
  • DOWN, OR YOU CAN FORGIVE THEM
  • 00:05:43.030 --> 00:05:44.260
  • AND GO ON.
  • 00:05:44.260 --> 00:05:46.210
  • IF YOU LOST YOUR TEMPER
  • 00:05:46.210 --> 00:05:47.250
  • YESTERDAY YOU CAN EITHER BEAT
  • 00:05:47.250 --> 00:05:49.100
  • YOURSELF UP, CARRY AROUND THE
  • 00:05:49.100 --> 00:05:50.200
  • GUILT AND CONDEMNATION, OR YOU
  • 00:05:50.200 --> 00:05:52.200
  • CAN ASK FOR FORGIVENESS, RECEIVE
  • 00:05:52.200 --> 00:05:54.220
  • GOD'S MERCY AND DO BETTER TODAY.
  • 00:05:54.220 --> 00:05:56.190
  • IF YOU DIDN'T GET THAT PROMOTION
  • 00:05:56.190 --> 00:05:59.170
  • YOU CAN GET SOUR, GO AROUND WITH
  • 00:05:59.170 --> 00:06:01.040
  • A CHIP ON YOUR SHOULDER, OR YOU
  • 00:06:01.040 --> 00:06:03.030
  • CAN SHAKE IT OFF KNOWING THAT
  • 00:06:03.030 --> 00:06:04.220
  • GOD HAS SOMETHING BETTER IN
  • 00:06:04.220 --> 00:06:05.210
  • STORE.
  • 00:06:05.210 --> 00:06:07.100
  • NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS IN LIFE,
  • 00:06:07.100 --> 00:06:08.230
  • BIG OR SMALL, IF YOU WILL LEARN
  • 00:06:08.230 --> 00:06:10.180
  • TO LET IT GO AND MOVE FORWARD
  • 00:06:10.200 --> 00:06:13.200
  • THEN YOUR PAST DOESN'T HAVE TO
  • 00:06:13.200 --> 00:06:15.050
  • POISON YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:06:15.050 --> 00:06:17.270
  • I MET A LADY AFTER THE SERVICE A
  • 00:06:17.270 --> 00:06:19.270
  • FEW YEARS AGO WHO HAD BEEN
  • 00:06:19.270 --> 00:06:21.000
  • THROUGH A DIVORCE. WE PRAYED
  • 00:06:21.000 --> 00:06:22.110
  • SEVERAL TIMES THAT GOD WOULD
  • 00:06:22.110 --> 00:06:23.270
  • BRING SOMEBODY NEW INTO HER
  • 00:06:23.270 --> 00:06:25.010
  • LIFE. ONE DAY SHE MET THIS MAN,
  • 00:06:25.010 --> 00:06:27.050
  • A FINE GODLY MAN, VERY
  • 00:06:27.050 --> 00:06:28.260
  • SUCCESSFUL. SHE WAS SO HAPPY
  • 00:06:28.260 --> 00:06:31.000
  • ABOUT IT. BUT SHE MADE THE
  • 00:06:31.000 --> 00:06:32.030
  • MISTAKE OF DRAGGING ALL OF HER
  • 00:06:32.030 --> 00:06:34.030
  • NEGATIVE BAGGAGE INTO THIS NEW
  • 00:06:34.030 --> 00:06:37.030
  • RELATIONSHIP. SHE WAS
  • 00:06:37.030 --> 00:06:38.030
  • CONSTANTLY TALKING ABOUT WHAT
  • 00:06:38.030 --> 00:06:39.090
  • SHE HAD BEEN THROUGH, HOW SHE
  • 00:06:39.090 --> 00:06:40.150
  • WAS MISTREATED. SHE HAD A
  • 00:06:40.150 --> 00:06:41.290
  • VICTIM MENTALITY.
  • 00:06:42.020 --> 00:06:45.020
  • THE MAN TOLD ME LATER SHE WAS SO
  • 00:06:45.020 --> 00:06:46.090
  • FOCUSED ON HER PAST, SO CAUGHT
  • 00:06:46.090 --> 00:06:48.200
  • UP IN WHAT SHE HAD BEEN THROUGH,
  • 00:06:48.200 --> 00:06:50.160
  • HE COULDN'T HANDLE IT. HE MOVED
  • 00:06:50.160 --> 00:06:52.030
  • ON.
  • 00:06:52.030 --> 00:06:53.130
  • THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN WE HOLD
  • 00:06:53.130 --> 00:06:54.230
  • ON TO THE HURTS AND PAINS OF THE
  • 00:06:54.230 --> 00:06:56.080
  • PAST. IT WILL POISON YOU
  • 00:06:56.080 --> 00:06:58.180
  • EVERYWHERE YOU GO. YOU CANNOT
  • 00:06:58.180 --> 00:07:00.140
  • DRAG AROUND THE BAGGAGE FROM
  • 00:07:00.140 --> 00:07:02.030
  • YESTERDAY AND EXPECT TO HAVE
  • 00:07:02.030 --> 00:07:03.270
  • GOOD RELATIONSHIPS TODAY.
  • 00:07:03.270 --> 00:07:06.140
  • YOU'VE GOT TO LET IT GO.
  • 00:07:06.140 --> 00:07:07.290
  • QUIT LIVING LIFE LOOKING IN THAT
  • 00:07:07.290 --> 00:07:09.160
  • REARVIEW MIRROR. START LOOKING
  • 00:07:09.160 --> 00:07:11.050
  • OUT THE GREAT BIG WINDSHIELD.
  • 00:07:12.120 --> 00:07:15.120
  • YOU MAY HAVE HAD SOME BAD BREAKS
  • 00:07:15.120 --> 00:07:16.030
  • BUT THAT DID NOT STOP GOD'S PLAN
  • 00:07:16.030 --> 00:07:18.200
  • FOR YOUR LIFE. HE STILL HAS
  • 00:07:18.200 --> 00:07:19.180
  • SOMETHING AMAZING IN FRONT OF
  • 00:07:19.180 --> 00:07:20.230
  • YOU.
  • 00:07:20.230 --> 00:07:21.290
  • WHEN ONE DOOR CLOSES, IF YOU'LL
  • 00:07:21.290 --> 00:07:23.090
  • STAY IN FAITH, GOD WILL ALWAYS
  • 00:07:23.090 --> 00:07:24.190
  • OPEN UP ANOTHER DOOR.
  • 00:07:24.190 --> 00:07:26.240
  • WHEN ONE DREAM DIES DON'T SIT
  • 00:07:26.240 --> 00:07:28.080
  • AROUND, IN SELF-PITY, TALKING
  • 00:07:28.080 --> 00:07:30.060
  • ABOUT WHAT YOU'VE LOST.
  • 00:07:30.060 --> 00:07:31.290
  • DREAM ANOTHER DREAM.
  • 00:07:31.290 --> 00:07:33.030
  • YOUR LIFE IS NOT OVER BECAUSE
  • 00:07:33.030 --> 00:07:34.230
  • YOU LOST A LOVED ONE, YOU WENT
  • 00:07:34.230 --> 00:07:37.020
  • THROUGH A DIVORCE, YOU GOT LAID
  • 00:07:37.020 --> 00:07:39.270
  • OFF. YOU WOULDN'T BE ALIVE
  • 00:07:39.270 --> 00:07:41.140
  • UNLESS GOD HAD ANOTHER VICTORY
  • 00:07:41.140 --> 00:07:43.080
  • IN FRONT OF YOU. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:07:43.080 --> 00:07:45.010
  • NOW QUIT MOURNING OVER WHAT
  • 00:07:45.010 --> 00:07:46.240
  • YOU'VE LOST. LET GO OF WHAT
  • 00:07:46.240 --> 00:07:48.000
  • DIDN'T WORK OUT.
  • 00:07:48.000 --> 00:07:50.090
  • HOW DO YOU LET IT GO? QUIT
  • 00:07:50.090 --> 00:07:51.190
  • THINKING ABOUT IT. QUIT TALKING
  • 00:07:51.190 --> 00:07:52.250
  • ABOUT IT. QUIT RE-LIVING ALL
  • 00:07:52.250 --> 00:07:55.030
  • THE NEGATIVE THINGS THAT HAVE
  • 00:07:55.030 --> 00:07:56.240
  • HAPPENED TO YOU.
  • 00:07:56.240 --> 00:07:58.180
  • WHEN THOSE PICTURES COME UP ON
  • 00:07:58.180 --> 00:07:59.240
  • THE MOVIE SCREEN OF YOUR MIND
  • 00:07:59.240 --> 00:08:01.210
  • CHANGE THE CHANNEL. YOU HAVE
  • 00:08:01.210 --> 00:08:04.040
  • THE REMOTE CONTROL. YOU DON'T
  • 00:08:04.040 --> 00:08:05.180
  • HAVE TO WATCH EVERYTHING THAT
  • 00:08:05.180 --> 00:08:07.010
  • COMES UP. IF YOU KEEP RE-LIVING
  • 00:08:07.010 --> 00:08:09.090
  • NEGATIVE MEMORIES, THINKING
  • 00:08:09.090 --> 00:08:11.020
  • ABOUT HOW UNFAIR IT WAS, "HOW
  • 00:08:11.020 --> 00:08:12.270
  • COULD THEY DO THAT TO ME,"
  • 00:08:12.270 --> 00:08:14.230
  • THAT WOUND WILL NEVER HEAL.
  • 00:08:14.230 --> 00:08:17.080
  • EVERY TIME YOU THINK ABOUT IT
  • 00:08:17.080 --> 00:08:18.200
  • YOU'RE RE-OPENING IT. THE MIND
  • 00:08:18.200 --> 00:08:20.100
  • IS VERY POWERFUL. WHEN YOU
  • 00:08:20.100 --> 00:08:22.140
  • RE-PLAY NEGATIVE EXPERIENCES
  • 00:08:22.140 --> 00:08:24.040
  • YOU WILL FEEL THE SAME EMOTION
  • 00:08:24.040 --> 00:08:26.120
  • AS WHEN IT FIRST HAPPENED.
  • 00:08:26.120 --> 00:08:28.080
  • BEFORE LONG YOU'LL BE SAD,
  • 00:08:28.080 --> 00:08:29.110
  • ANGRY, DEPRESSED, BITTER.
  • 00:08:29.110 --> 00:08:31.000
  • I KNOW PEOPLE, WHEN THAT PICTURE
  • 00:08:31.000 --> 00:08:32.240
  • COMES UP ON THE MOVIE SCREEN
  • 00:08:32.240 --> 00:08:34.020
  • OF THEIR MIND, THE NEGATIVE
  • 00:08:34.020 --> 00:08:35.050
  • MEMORIES, INSTEAD OF QUICKLY
  • 00:08:35.050 --> 00:08:36.120
  • CHANGING THE CHANNEL THEY GO
  • 00:08:36.120 --> 00:08:38.090
  • PULL UP A CHAIR, SO TO SPEAK,
  • 00:08:38.090 --> 00:08:39.290
  • GET A BAG OF POPCORN, WATCH IT
  • 00:08:39.290 --> 00:08:41.130
  • FOR THE NEXT FIFTEEN MINUTES.
  • 00:08:41.130 --> 00:08:42.280
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:08:42.280 --> 00:08:44.080
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, "THINK ON
  • 00:08:44.080 --> 00:08:45.120
  • THINGS THAT ARE PURE, THINGS
  • 00:08:45.120 --> 00:08:47.180
  • THAT ARE WHOLESOME, THINGS THAT
  • 00:08:47.180 --> 00:08:48.280
  • ARE OF A GOOD REPORT."
  • 00:08:48.280 --> 00:08:51.020
  • IF YOU'RE GOING TO KEEP MOVING
  • 00:08:51.020 --> 00:08:51.270
  • FORWARD YOU'VE GOT TO BE
  • 00:08:51.270 --> 00:08:53.030
  • DISCIPLINED IN YOUR THOUGHT
  • 00:08:53.030 --> 00:08:55.060
  • LIFE. THE NEGATIVE MEMORIES
  • 00:08:55.060 --> 00:08:56.160
  • WILL TRY TO REPLAY AGAIN AND
  • 00:08:56.160 --> 00:08:57.280
  • AGAIN. YOU'VE GOT TO GUARD YOUR
  • 00:08:57.280 --> 00:08:59.070
  • MIND.
  • 00:08:59.070 --> 00:09:00.210
  • SOME OF YOU WOULD GO TO A NEW
  • 00:09:00.210 --> 00:09:02.010
  • LEVEL IF YOU WOULD SIMPLY START
  • 00:09:02.010 --> 00:09:03.120
  • CHANGING THE CHANNEL.
  • 00:09:03.120 --> 00:09:05.180
  • QUIT RE-PLAYING THE
  • 00:09:05.180 --> 00:09:06.220
  • DISAPPOINTMENTS. QUIT RE-LIVING
  • 00:09:06.220 --> 00:09:08.040
  • THE BAD BREAKS. EVERY TIME YOU
  • 00:09:08.040 --> 00:09:10.030
  • WATCH THAT, YOU THINK ABOUT IT,
  • 00:09:10.030 --> 00:09:11.280
  • YOU'RE RE-OPENING THE WOUND.
  • 00:09:11.280 --> 00:09:13.200
  • IT'S MAKING IT MORE DIFFICULT.
  • 00:09:13.200 --> 00:09:15.030
  • I WALKED INTO A GOVERNMENT
  • 00:09:15.030 --> 00:09:16.280
  • BUILDING ONE TIME. THERE WERE
  • 00:09:16.280 --> 00:09:18.150
  • TWO SETS OF DOUBLE DOORS ABOUT
  • 00:09:18.150 --> 00:09:19.250
  • FIFTEEN FEET APART. THEY WERE
  • 00:09:19.250 --> 00:09:22.020
  • BOTH AUTOMATIC DOORS. WHEN YOU
  • 00:09:22.020 --> 00:09:24.030
  • WALKED THROUGH THE FIRST SET OF
  • 00:09:24.030 --> 00:09:25.100
  • DOORS YOU HAD TO LET THEM
  • 00:09:25.100 --> 00:09:26.200
  • TOTALLY CLOSE UNTIL THE NEXT
  • 00:09:26.200 --> 00:09:28.290
  • SET OF DOORS WOULD OPEN. AS
  • 00:09:28.290 --> 00:09:31.080
  • LONG AS I STAYED AT THAT FIRST
  • 00:09:31.080 --> 00:09:32.120
  • SET, THE SECOND SET WOULD NOT
  • 00:09:32.120 --> 00:09:33.200
  • OPEN.
  • 00:09:33.200 --> 00:09:35.180
  • IT'S THE SAME PRINCIPLE IN LIFE.
  • 00:09:35.180 --> 00:09:36.130
  • IF YOU'RE SITTING AROUND NURSING
  • 00:09:36.130 --> 00:09:38.080
  • YOUR WOUNDS, FEELING SORRY FOR
  • 00:09:38.080 --> 00:09:40.010
  • YOURSELF, YOU'RE NOT GOING TO
  • 00:09:40.010 --> 00:09:41.150
  • SEE ANYTHING NEW.
  • 00:09:41.150 --> 00:09:43.080
  • YOU'VE GOT TO LET THOSE DOORS
  • 00:09:43.080 --> 00:09:44.190
  • TOTALLY CLOSE. LET GO OF THE
  • 00:09:44.190 --> 00:09:46.190
  • DISAPPOINTMENTS. LET GO OF THE
  • 00:09:46.190 --> 00:09:48.050
  • FAILURES. YOU CANNOT CHANGE THE
  • 00:09:48.050 --> 00:09:50.120
  • PAST BUT YOU CAN CHANGE THE
  • 00:09:50.120 --> 00:09:52.230
  • FUTURE. IF YOU'LL MOVE FORWARD
  • 00:09:52.230 --> 00:09:55.090
  • YOU'LL SEE THE NEW THINGS GOD
  • 00:09:55.090 --> 00:09:56.170
  • WANTS TO DO.
  • 00:09:56.170 --> 00:09:57.250
  • THIS IS WHAT THE SCRIPTURE SAYS.
  • 00:09:57.250 --> 00:09:59.110
  • "GOD WILL GIVE YOU BEAUTY FOR
  • 00:09:59.110 --> 00:10:00.190
  • ASHES."
  • 00:10:00.190 --> 00:10:02.170
  • HERE'S THE KEY; YOU HAVE TO LET
  • 00:10:02.170 --> 00:10:03.250
  • GO OF THE ASHES BEFORE YOU CAN
  • 00:10:03.250 --> 00:10:05.190
  • RECEIVE THE BEAUTY. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:10:05.190 --> 00:10:08.030
  • ASHES REPRESENT OUR BROKEN
  • 00:10:08.030 --> 00:10:09.220
  • DREAMS, OUR FAILURES, OUR
  • 00:10:09.220 --> 00:10:11.100
  • DISAPPOINTMENTS, OUR HURTS.
  • 00:10:11.100 --> 00:10:13.110
  • WE ALL HAVE OUR SHARE OF ASHES.
  • 00:10:13.110 --> 00:10:15.190
  • AS LONG AS YOU'RE HOLDING ONTO
  • 00:10:15.190 --> 00:10:16.270
  • THE ASHES, THINKING ABOUT THE
  • 00:10:16.270 --> 00:10:18.140
  • DISAPPOINTMENT, MAD AT SOMEBODY,
  • 00:10:18.140 --> 00:10:21.070
  • BITTER AT THE PAST, THEN YOU
  • 00:10:21.070 --> 00:10:22.220
  • WON'T RECEIVE THE BEAUTY.
  • 00:10:22.220 --> 00:10:25.000
  • AN EXCHANGE HAS TO TAKE PLACE.
  • 00:10:25.000 --> 00:10:27.080
  • IT'S AN ACT OF FAITH TO SAY,
  • 00:10:27.080 --> 00:10:28.160
  • "GOD, I'M FORGIVING THIS PERSON
  • 00:10:28.160 --> 00:10:30.110
  • THAT HURT ME." OR,
  • 00:10:30.110 --> 00:10:32.050
  • "I LOST MY BIGGEST CLIENT BUT
  • 00:10:32.050 --> 00:10:33.180
  • I'M NOT GOING TO HAVE A CHIP
  • 00:10:33.180 --> 00:10:34.180
  • ON MY SHOULDER."
  • 00:10:34.180 --> 00:10:35.260
  • "MY FRIEND BETRAYED ME BUT I'M
  • 00:10:35.260 --> 00:10:37.060
  • GOING TO KEEP A GOOD ATTITUDE."
  • 00:10:37.060 --> 00:10:38.240
  • THAT'S WHEN GOD CAN GIVE YOU THE
  • 00:10:38.240 --> 00:10:40.160
  • BEAUTY.
  • 00:10:40.160 --> 00:10:42.040
  • "WELL, JOEL. THEY HURT ME TOO
  • 00:10:42.040 --> 00:10:43.160
  • BADLY. I CAN'T FORGIVE THEM."
  • 00:10:43.160 --> 00:10:44.250
  • THAT'S A HEAVY PRICE TO PAY.
  • 00:10:44.250 --> 00:10:47.070
  • IF YOU WON'T LET GO OF THE OLD
  • 00:10:47.070 --> 00:10:48.220
  • YOU CAN'T RECEIVE THE NEW.
  • 00:10:48.220 --> 00:10:51.010
  • "WELL, WE PRAYED FOR OUR MOTHER
  • 00:10:51.010 --> 00:10:52.240
  • AND SHE DIDN'T GET HEALED LIKE
  • 00:10:52.240 --> 00:10:54.090
  • YOUR MOTHER. WE DON'T
  • 00:10:54.090 --> 00:10:55.080
  • UNDERSTAND IT."
  • 00:10:55.080 --> 00:10:56.130
  • I DON'T CLAIM TO UNDERSTAND IT
  • 00:10:56.130 --> 00:10:57.270
  • ALL. I'M SIMPLY ASKING YOU TO
  • 00:10:57.270 --> 00:10:59.070
  • LET GO OF THE ASHES. LET GO OF
  • 00:10:59.070 --> 00:11:01.230
  • THE DISAPPOINTMENT. LET GO OF
  • 00:11:01.230 --> 00:11:03.110
  • THE BLAME. TAKE THOSE ASHES,
  • 00:11:03.110 --> 00:11:05.200
  • YOUR BROKEN DREAMS, YOUR HURTS,
  • 00:11:05.200 --> 00:11:06.260
  • YOUR FAILURES, EVEN YOUR
  • 00:11:06.260 --> 00:11:07.260
  • QUESTIONS, PUT THEM INTO GOD'S
  • 00:11:07.260 --> 00:11:10.000
  • HANDS AND SAY, "GOD, IT WASN'T
  • 00:11:10.000 --> 00:11:11.190
  • FAIR. THEY HURT ME. MY DREAM
  • 00:11:11.190 --> 00:11:14.190
  • DIDN'T WORK OUT BUT I REFUSE TO
  • 00:11:14.190 --> 00:11:16.110
  • LIVE LIFE LOOKING IN THE
  • 00:11:16.110 --> 00:11:18.080
  • REARVIEW MIRROR. YOU PROMISED
  • 00:11:18.080 --> 00:11:19.190
  • ME BEAUTY FOR ASHES. SO RIGHT
  • 00:11:19.190 --> 00:11:21.100
  • NOW I'M RELEASING THE
  • 00:11:22.080 --> 00:11:25.080
  • BITTERNESS. I'M FORGIVING THE
  • 00:11:25.080 --> 00:11:26.080
  • PERSON THAT HURT ME. I'M
  • 00:11:26.080 --> 00:11:27.070
  • LETTING GO OF THE
  • 00:11:27.070 --> 00:11:27.280
  • DISAPPOINTMENTS."
  • 00:11:27.280 --> 00:11:30.040
  • I KNOW A MAN THAT LOST HIS WIFE
  • 00:11:30.040 --> 00:11:31.240
  • OVER TEN YEARS AGO. SHE WAS
  • 00:11:31.240 --> 00:11:33.030
  • KILLED IN AN AUTOMOBILE
  • 00:11:33.030 --> 00:11:34.230
  • ACCIDENT. IT WAS A VERY TRAGIC
  • 00:11:34.230 --> 00:11:35.250
  • SITUATION. OF COURSE, THERE IS
  • 00:11:35.250 --> 00:11:37.220
  • A NORMAL PERIOD FOR GRIEVING.
  • 00:11:37.220 --> 00:11:40.160
  • THAT'S A PART OF THE HEALING
  • 00:11:40.160 --> 00:11:41.250
  • PROCESS. THAT'S THE WAY GOD
  • 00:11:41.250 --> 00:11:42.190
  • MADE US. BUT SOME TEN YEARS
  • 00:11:42.190 --> 00:11:44.070
  • LATER THIS MAN WAS STILL
  • 00:11:44.070 --> 00:11:46.010
  • GRIEVING. HE LET A SEASON OF
  • 00:11:46.010 --> 00:11:47.260
  • MORNING TURN INTO A LIFETIME OF
  • 00:11:47.260 --> 00:11:49.240
  • MOURNING. HE ENDED UP A VERY
  • 00:11:49.240 --> 00:11:52.040
  • BITTER ANGRY MAN.
  • 00:11:52.040 --> 00:11:54.120
  • WHAT HAPPENED? HE WAS HOLDING
  • 00:11:54.120 --> 00:11:55.130
  • ON TO THE ASHES. GOD WANTS TO
  • 00:11:55.130 --> 00:11:57.180
  • GIVE HIM BEAUTY BUT BECAUSE HE
  • 00:11:57.180 --> 00:11:59.090
  • WON'T LET GO OF THE OLD HE
  • 00:11:59.090 --> 00:12:00.280
  • CAN'T RECEIVE THE NEW.
  • 00:12:00.280 --> 00:12:03.000
  • THE ENEMY WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO
  • 00:12:03.000 --> 00:12:04.290
  • SPEND YOUR WHOLE LIFE SITTING IN
  • 00:12:04.290 --> 00:12:06.200
  • THE ASHES, BITTER OVER A
  • 00:12:06.200 --> 00:12:08.060
  • RELATIONSHIP THAT DIDN'T WORK
  • 00:12:08.060 --> 00:12:10.060
  • OUT, ANGRY OVER A JOB YOU DIDN'T
  • 00:12:10.060 --> 00:12:11.280
  • GET, FEELING SORRY FOR YOURSELF
  • 00:12:11.280 --> 00:12:14.200
  • BECAUSE OF A LOVED ONE THAT
  • 00:12:14.200 --> 00:12:15.260
  • DIED. NO, TURN LOOSE OF THOSE
  • 00:12:15.260 --> 00:12:17.260
  • ASHES. IF YOU WENT THROUGH A
  • 00:12:17.260 --> 00:12:20.030
  • DIVORCE LET IT GO. GOD HAS
  • 00:12:20.030 --> 00:12:22.060
  • SOMEBODY BETTER IN YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:12:22.060 --> 00:12:23.120
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:12:23.120 --> 00:12:25.160
  • IF YOU WEREN'T TREATED RIGHT
  • 00:12:25.160 --> 00:12:26.090
  • GROWING UP LET IT GO AND GOD
  • 00:12:26.090 --> 00:12:27.180
  • WILL MAKE IT UP TO YOU.
  • 00:12:27.180 --> 00:12:29.100
  • IF YOU LOST A LOVED ONE, THEY'RE
  • 00:12:29.100 --> 00:12:30.280
  • UP IN HEAVEN RIGHT NOW
  • 00:12:30.280 --> 00:12:33.000
  • CELEBRATING. YOU KNOW WHAT THEY
  • 00:12:33.000 --> 00:12:34.080
  • WOULD WANT ME TO TELL YOU?
  • 00:12:34.080 --> 00:12:35.210
  • MOVE FORWARD.
  • 00:12:35.210 --> 00:12:37.050
  • QUIT MOURNING OVER SOMETHING
  • 00:12:37.050 --> 00:12:38.240
  • THAT'S OVER AND DONE. QUIT
  • 00:12:38.240 --> 00:12:40.140
  • MOURNING OVER WHAT YOU CANNOT
  • 00:12:40.140 --> 00:12:42.100
  • CHANGE. IF GOD WANTED THEM TO
  • 00:12:42.100 --> 00:12:44.150
  • STILL BE HERE THEY WOULD STILL
  • 00:12:44.150 --> 00:12:46.000
  • BE HERE. IF GOD WANTED YOU TO
  • 00:12:46.000 --> 00:12:47.240
  • HAVE THAT POSITION THAT YOU
  • 00:12:47.240 --> 00:12:49.150
  • DIDN'T GET YOU WOULD HAVE IT.
  • 00:12:49.150 --> 00:12:51.130
  • SHAKE OFF THE SELF-PITY.
  • 00:12:51.130 --> 00:12:53.010
  • SHAKE OFF THE DISAPPOINTMENT.
  • 00:12:53.010 --> 00:12:55.060
  • THE APOSTLE PAUL PUT IT THIS
  • 00:12:55.060 --> 00:12:56.150
  • WAY, "FORGETTING WHAT LIES
  • 00:12:56.150 --> 00:12:58.100
  • BEHIND, I STRAIN TOWARD WHAT
  • 00:12:58.100 --> 00:13:00.130
  • LIES AHEAD."
  • 00:13:00.130 --> 00:13:02.170
  • THAT WORD, "STRAIN," INDICATES
  • 00:13:02.170 --> 00:13:04.030
  • IT'S GOING TO TAKE EFFORT.
  • 00:13:04.030 --> 00:13:05.290
  • YOU GO THROUGH A BAD BREAK,
  • 00:13:05.290 --> 00:13:07.100
  • A LOSS, THE EASY THING TO DO IS
  • 00:13:07.100 --> 00:13:09.150
  • SIT AROUND AND TALK ABOUT HOW
  • 00:13:09.150 --> 00:13:10.260
  • BAD LIFE IS TREATING YOU. BUT
  • 00:13:10.260 --> 00:13:12.120
  • IF YOU'RE GOING TO KEEP MOVING
  • 00:13:12.120 --> 00:13:13.250
  • FORWARD YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE A
  • 00:13:13.250 --> 00:13:15.030
  • STRONG WILL. YOU'VE GOT TO RISE
  • 00:13:15.030 --> 00:13:16.220
  • UP LIKE PAUL AND SAY, "THAT'S
  • 00:13:16.220 --> 00:13:18.070
  • IT. I AM NOT HOLDING ONTO THESE
  • 00:13:18.070 --> 00:13:20.130
  • ASHES. I KNOW WHAT'S IN MY
  • 00:13:20.130 --> 00:13:21.240
  • FUTURE IS GREATER THAN WHAT'S
  • 00:13:21.240 --> 00:13:23.290
  • IN MY PAST SO I AM PRESSING
  • 00:13:23.290 --> 00:13:26.000
  • FORWARD IN LIFE." (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:13:26.000 --> 00:13:28.160
  • THIS IS WHAT THE PROPHET SAMUEL
  • 00:13:28.160 --> 00:13:29.210
  • HAD TO DO. SAMUEL HAD INVESTED
  • 00:13:29.220 --> 00:13:32.220
  • A LOT OF TIME AND ENERGY INTO
  • 00:13:32.220 --> 00:13:34.150
  • HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH SAUL.
  • 00:13:34.150 --> 00:13:36.100
  • BACK WHEN SAUL WAS A YOUNG MAN,
  • 00:13:36.100 --> 00:13:38.130
  • SAMUEL CHOSE HIM AT THE LORD'S
  • 00:13:38.130 --> 00:13:39.290
  • COMMAND TO BE THE NEXT KING OF
  • 00:13:39.290 --> 00:13:41.170
  • ISRAEL.
  • 00:13:41.170 --> 00:13:43.170
  • SAMUEL TOOK SAUL UNDER HIS WING.
  • 00:13:43.170 --> 00:13:45.080
  • HE DID HIS BEST TO MAKE SURE
  • 00:13:45.080 --> 00:13:46.270
  • THAT SAUL WOULD SUCCEED.
  • 00:13:46.270 --> 00:13:48.260
  • BUT UNFORTUNATELY SAUL WOULDN'T
  • 00:13:48.260 --> 00:13:50.160
  • WALK IN OBEDIENCE AND GOD
  • 00:13:50.160 --> 00:13:52.130
  • REJECTED HIM AS KING.
  • 00:13:52.130 --> 00:13:55.100
  • WELL, YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW
  • 00:13:55.100 --> 00:13:56.080
  • SAMUEL MUST HAVE FELT. HE HAD
  • 00:13:56.080 --> 00:13:57.260
  • PUT ALL THIS TIME AND EFFORT
  • 00:13:57.260 --> 00:13:59.060
  • AND ENERGY INTO SAUL AND NOW IT
  • 00:13:59.060 --> 00:14:01.080
  • LOOKS LIKE IT WAS ALL A BIG
  • 00:14:01.080 --> 00:14:03.010
  • WASTE OF TIME.
  • 00:14:03.010 --> 00:14:05.110
  • I'M SURE SAMUEL WAS HEARTBROKEN,
  • 00:14:05.110 --> 00:14:06.270
  • SITTING AROUND FEELING SORRY FOR
  • 00:14:06.270 --> 00:14:08.110
  • HIMSELF, THINKING ABOUT WHAT
  • 00:14:08.110 --> 00:14:09.160
  • DIDN'T WORK OUT.
  • 00:14:09.160 --> 00:14:11.120
  • IN FIRST SAMUEL 16, GOD SAID,
  • 00:14:11.120 --> 00:14:13.230
  • "SAMUEL, HOW LONG ARE YOU GOING
  • 00:14:13.230 --> 00:14:15.210
  • TO MOURN OVER SAUL?"
  • 00:14:15.210 --> 00:14:17.290
  • GOD IS ASKING US THE SAME THING.
  • 00:14:17.290 --> 00:14:20.150
  • HOW LONG ARE YOU GOING TO MOURN
  • 00:14:20.150 --> 00:14:21.270
  • OVER WHAT YOU'VE LOST? HOW LONG
  • 00:14:21.270 --> 00:14:23.240
  • ARE YOU GOING TO BE DISCOURAGED
  • 00:14:23.240 --> 00:14:25.120
  • OVER A RELATIONSHIP THAT DIDN'T
  • 00:14:25.120 --> 00:14:27.000
  • WORK OUT? OVER A JOB YOU DIDN'T
  • 00:14:27.000 --> 00:14:28.240
  • GET? OVER SOMEBODY THAT HURT
  • 00:14:28.240 --> 00:14:30.050
  • YOU? THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH
  • 00:14:30.050 --> 00:14:32.060
  • EXCESSIVE MOURNING. IT STOPS
  • 00:14:32.060 --> 00:14:35.040
  • GOD FROM RELEASING THE NEW
  • 00:14:35.040 --> 00:14:37.060
  • THINGS HE HAS FOR YOU.
  • 00:14:37.060 --> 00:14:38.270
  • GOD TOLD SAMUEL, "FILL YOUR HORN
  • 00:14:38.270 --> 00:14:40.280
  • WITH OIL AND BE ON YOUR WAY.
  • 00:14:41.010 --> 00:14:44.010
  • I AM SENDING YOU TO THE HOUSE OF
  • 00:14:44.010 --> 00:14:45.240
  • JESSE. I'VE CHOSEN ONE OF HIS
  • 00:14:45.240 --> 00:14:47.120
  • SONS TO BE THE NEXT KING."
  • 00:14:47.120 --> 00:14:50.030
  • GOD WAS SAYING, "SAMUEL, IF
  • 00:14:50.030 --> 00:14:51.160
  • YOU'LL QUIT MOURNING AND INSTEAD
  • 00:14:51.160 --> 00:14:53.080
  • GET UP AND START MOVING FORWARD,
  • 00:14:53.080 --> 00:14:55.070
  • I'LL GIVE YOU ANOTHER KING."
  • 00:14:55.070 --> 00:14:58.070
  • SAUL WAS HIS FIRST CHOICE BUT
  • 00:14:58.070 --> 00:15:00.230
  • JUST BECAUSE SAUL WOULDN'T WALK
  • 00:15:00.230 --> 00:15:02.170
  • IN OBEDIENCE, GOD DIDN'T SAY,
  • 00:15:02.170 --> 00:15:04.130
  • "I'M SORRY SAMUEL. SAUL BLEW
  • 00:15:04.130 --> 00:15:06.100
  • IT. THAT RUINS EVERYTHING."
  • 00:15:06.100 --> 00:15:07.260
  • NO, GOD ALWAYS HAS ANOTHER PLAN.
  • 00:15:07.260 --> 00:15:10.200
  • IF YOU'LL QUIT DWELLING ON THE
  • 00:15:10.200 --> 00:15:11.280
  • DISAPPOINTMENT, QUIT FEELING
  • 00:15:11.280 --> 00:15:13.070
  • SORRY FOR YOURSELF AND INSTEAD
  • 00:15:13.070 --> 00:15:15.180
  • DO WHAT THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, FILL
  • 00:15:15.180 --> 00:15:17.080
  • YOUR HORN WITH OIL. THAT SIMPLY
  • 00:15:17.080 --> 00:15:19.050
  • MEANS PUT ON A NEW ATTITUDE.
  • 00:15:19.050 --> 00:15:21.160
  • PUT THE SMILE BACK ON YOUR FACE.
  • 00:15:21.160 --> 00:15:23.280
  • GET THE SPRING BACK IN YOUR
  • 00:15:23.280 --> 00:15:25.020
  • STEP. GET YOUR HOPES UP.
  • 00:15:25.020 --> 00:15:26.250
  • START EXPECTING GOD'S GOODNESS.
  • 00:15:26.250 --> 00:15:28.190
  • THAT'S WHEN YOU'LL SEE THE NEW
  • 00:15:28.190 --> 00:15:30.090
  • THINGS GOD HAS IN STORE.
  • 00:15:30.090 --> 00:15:32.170
  • NOW, SAMUEL COULD HAVE SAID,
  • 00:15:32.170 --> 00:15:34.000
  • "GOD, I CAN'T DO IT. I'M TOO
  • 00:15:34.000 --> 00:15:35.110
  • HEARTBROKEN. THEY HURT ME TOO
  • 00:15:35.110 --> 00:15:36.230
  • BAD. I SPENT TOO MUCH TIME WITH
  • 00:15:36.230 --> 00:15:38.020
  • SAUL."
  • 00:15:38.020 --> 00:15:39.150
  • IF HE WOULD HAVE DONE THAT HE
  • 00:15:39.150 --> 00:15:40.120
  • WOULD HAVE MISSED OUT ON
  • 00:15:40.120 --> 00:15:41.180
  • CHOOSING DAVID - ONE OF THE
  • 00:15:41.180 --> 00:15:43.090
  • GREATEST KINGS THAT HAS EVER
  • 00:15:43.090 --> 00:15:44.130
  • LIVED.
  • 00:15:44.130 --> 00:15:45.200
  • JUST LIKE WITH SAMUEL, WHAT YOU
  • 00:15:45.200 --> 00:15:47.020
  • MAY THINK RIGHT NOW IS A BIG
  • 00:15:47.020 --> 00:15:49.040
  • DISAPPOINTMENT, A BIG STUMBLING
  • 00:15:49.040 --> 00:15:51.070
  • BLOCK, GOD IS GOING TO TURN IT
  • 00:15:51.070 --> 00:15:53.120
  • INTO A STEPPING STONE TO TAKE
  • 00:15:53.120 --> 00:15:55.260
  • YOU INTO THE GREATEST DAYS OF
  • 00:15:55.260 --> 00:15:57.210
  • YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:15:57.210 --> 00:15:59.220
  • I HAVE FRIEND THAT WAS MARRIED
  • 00:15:59.220 --> 00:16:01.050
  • FOR MANY, MANY YEARS. ONE DAY
  • 00:16:01.050 --> 00:16:02.290
  • HE CAME HOME AND HIS WIFE HAD
  • 00:16:02.290 --> 00:16:04.240
  • LEFT A NOTE ON THE KITCHEN
  • 00:16:04.240 --> 00:16:06.110
  • TABLE SAYING THAT SHE HAD
  • 00:16:06.110 --> 00:16:07.290
  • FALLEN IN LOVE WITH SOMEBODY
  • 00:16:07.290 --> 00:16:09.110
  • ELSE AND WAS MOVING AWAY.
  • 00:16:09.110 --> 00:16:11.200
  • OF COURSE HE WAS VERY
  • 00:16:11.200 --> 00:16:13.000
  • DEVASTATED. WHEN I SAW HIM HE
  • 00:16:13.000 --> 00:16:14.250
  • LOOKED 20 YEARS OLDER THAN HE
  • 00:16:14.250 --> 00:16:15.260
  • REALLY WAS. HE SAID, "I DON'T
  • 00:16:15.260 --> 00:16:17.130
  • UNDERSTAND IT. I LOVE THIS
  • 00:16:17.130 --> 00:16:18.280
  • LADY. I'LL NEVER FIND ANOTHER
  • 00:16:18.280 --> 00:16:20.110
  • PERSON LIKE HER."
  • 00:16:20.110 --> 00:16:22.250
  • HE THOUGHT HE HAD SEEN HIS BEST
  • 00:16:22.250 --> 00:16:24.020
  • DAYS. HE GRIEVED THAT LOSS.
  • 00:16:24.020 --> 00:16:25.250
  • HE WENT THROUGH A SEASON OF
  • 00:16:25.250 --> 00:16:27.100
  • MOURNING BUT HE DIDN'T LET IT
  • 00:16:27.100 --> 00:16:29.070
  • TURN INTO A LIFETIME OF
  • 00:16:29.070 --> 00:16:30.250
  • MOURNING. IT DIDN'T HAPPEN
  • 00:16:30.250 --> 00:16:32.190
  • OVERNIGHT BUT EVENTUALLY HE GOT
  • 00:16:32.190 --> 00:16:34.050
  • HIS PASSION BACK. HE PUT ON A
  • 00:16:34.050 --> 00:16:35.180
  • NEW ATTITUDE. HE MADE THE
  • 00:16:35.180 --> 00:16:37.110
  • DECISION HE WASN'T GOING TO
  • 00:16:37.110 --> 00:16:39.120
  • LIVE LIFE LOOKING IN THE
  • 00:16:39.120 --> 00:16:40.190
  • REARVIEW MIRROR; HE KEPT
  • 00:16:40.190 --> 00:16:42.070
  • MOVING FORWARD.
  • 00:16:42.070 --> 00:16:44.020
  • ABOUT THREE YEARS LATER HE MET
  • 00:16:44.020 --> 00:16:45.020
  • THIS BEAUTIFUL YOUNG LADY. THEY
  • 00:16:45.020 --> 00:16:46.240
  • ENDED UP FALLING IN LOVE AND
  • 00:16:46.240 --> 00:16:48.260
  • GETTING MARRIED. HE TOLD ME,
  • 00:16:48.260 --> 00:16:49.280
  • "JOEL, I HAVE NEVER BEEN THIS
  • 00:16:49.280 --> 00:16:51.260
  • HAPPY IN ALL OF MY LIFE.
  • 00:16:51.260 --> 00:16:54.260
  • I NEVER KNEW WHAT TRUE LOVE
  • 00:16:54.260 --> 00:16:55.190
  • REALLY WAS."
  • 00:16:55.190 --> 00:16:56.280
  • THIS IS THE WAY GOD IS.
  • 00:16:56.280 --> 00:16:58.010
  • IF YOU'LL LET GO OF THE ASHES
  • 00:16:58.010 --> 00:17:00.020
  • AND NOT GET BITTER GOD WILL DO
  • 00:17:00.020 --> 00:17:02.050
  • SOMETHING GREATER THAN YOU'VE
  • 00:17:02.050 --> 00:17:03.220
  • EVER IMAGINED. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:17:03.220 --> 00:17:05.120
  • WHEN MY FATHER WAS ALIVE I USED
  • 00:17:05.120 --> 00:17:07.010
  • TO TELL VICTORIA, "I WONDER
  • 00:17:07.010 --> 00:17:08.260
  • WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN TO ME AND
  • 00:17:08.260 --> 00:17:11.160
  • WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN AROUND
  • 00:17:11.160 --> 00:17:12.170
  • HERE WHEN MY FATHER GOES TO BE
  • 00:17:12.170 --> 00:17:13.160
  • WITH THE LORD?"
  • 00:17:13.160 --> 00:17:15.100
  • MY FATHER AND I, WE HAD TRAVELED
  • 00:17:15.100 --> 00:17:16.140
  • THE WORLD TOGETHER FOR SEVENTEEN
  • 00:17:16.140 --> 00:17:18.060
  • YEARS. I WORKED WITH HIM DAY IN
  • 00:17:18.060 --> 00:17:19.120
  • AND DAY OUT HERE AT THE
  • 00:17:19.120 --> 00:17:21.000
  • MINISTRY. HE WOULD COME OVER TO
  • 00:17:21.000 --> 00:17:22.100
  • OUR HOUSE MANY NIGHTS. WE WOULD
  • 00:17:22.100 --> 00:17:24.050
  • HAVE DINNER OR GO WATCH THE
  • 00:17:24.050 --> 00:17:24.220
  • ASTROS PLAY BASEBALL.
  • 00:17:24.220 --> 00:17:26.260
  • MUCH OF MY WORLD WAS BUILT
  • 00:17:26.260 --> 00:17:28.090
  • AROUND MY FATHER. IN THE BACK
  • 00:17:28.090 --> 00:17:30.050
  • OF MY MIND I THOUGHT, "WHEN MY
  • 00:17:30.050 --> 00:17:31.190
  • DAD DIES IT WILL NEVER BE AS
  • 00:17:31.190 --> 00:17:33.270
  • GOOD AS IT IS RIGHT NOW."
  • 00:17:33.270 --> 00:17:36.110
  • WHEN MY DAD WENT TO BE WITH THE
  • 00:17:36.110 --> 00:17:38.190
  • LORD, IN 1999 HE SUDDENLY HAD A
  • 00:17:38.190 --> 00:17:39.270
  • HEART ATTACK, I MOURNED THE LOSS
  • 00:17:39.270 --> 00:17:41.240
  • OF MY FATHER BUT I DIDN'T GET
  • 00:17:41.240 --> 00:17:43.110
  • BITTER. I DIDN'T HAVE A CHIP ON
  • 00:17:43.110 --> 00:17:45.040
  • MY SHOULDER. I DIDN'T FEEL
  • 00:17:45.040 --> 00:17:46.220
  • CHEATED. I KNEW THE NUMBER OF
  • 00:17:46.220 --> 00:17:48.140
  • MY FATHER'S DAYS GOD HAD
  • 00:17:48.140 --> 00:17:50.230
  • FULFILLED. I KNEW IT WAS A PART
  • 00:17:50.230 --> 00:17:52.150
  • OF GOD'S PLAN. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:17:52.150 --> 00:17:54.160
  • AND I SAY THIS VERY
  • 00:17:54.160 --> 00:17:55.220
  • RESPECTFULLY BECAUSE I STILL
  • 00:17:55.220 --> 00:17:57.010
  • LOVE AND MISS MY FATHER BUT WHAT
  • 00:17:57.010 --> 00:17:59.010
  • I THOUGHT WOULD BE MY DARKEST
  • 00:17:59.010 --> 00:18:01.020
  • HOUR TURNED OUT TO BE MY
  • 00:18:01.020 --> 00:18:03.040
  • BRIGHTEST HOUR. I THOUGHT I
  • 00:18:03.040 --> 00:18:04.260
  • COULD NEVER BE AS HAPPY AND
  • 00:18:04.260 --> 00:18:06.190
  • FULFILLED AS WHEN MY DAD WAS
  • 00:18:06.190 --> 00:18:08.170
  • HERE. BUT LIKE WITH SAMUEL, GOD
  • 00:18:08.170 --> 00:18:10.140
  • HAD ANOTHER PLAN.
  • 00:18:10.140 --> 00:18:13.020
  • GOD HAD SOMETHING BETTER FOR THE
  • 00:18:13.020 --> 00:18:14.150
  • NEW SEASON OF MY LIFE.
  • 00:18:14.150 --> 00:18:16.260
  • WHEN YOU GO THROUGH A LOSS,
  • 00:18:16.260 --> 00:18:18.070
  • A DISAPPOINTMENT, IT'S EASY TO
  • 00:18:18.070 --> 00:18:19.110
  • THINK, "IT WILL NEVER BE LIKE IT
  • 00:18:19.110 --> 00:18:20.220
  • USED TO BE."
  • 00:18:20.220 --> 00:18:22.140
  • IF YOU'LL STAY IN FAITH AND KEEP
  • 00:18:22.140 --> 00:18:24.010
  • MOVING FORWARD, YOU'RE RIGHT.
  • 00:18:24.010 --> 00:18:26.050
  • IT WON'T BE WHAT IT USED TO BE.
  • 00:18:26.050 --> 00:18:27.270
  • IT WILL BE BETTER THAN IT USED
  • 00:18:27.270 --> 00:18:29.090
  • TO BE. THAT'S THE WAY OUR GOD
  • 00:18:29.090 --> 00:18:30.230
  • IS. THAT'S BEAUTY FOR ASHES.
  • 00:18:30.230 --> 00:18:32.120
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:18:32.120 --> 00:18:34.290
  • NOW MY QUESTION, "ARE YOU STILL
  • 00:18:34.290 --> 00:18:36.110
  • MOURNING OVER SOMETHING THAT YOU
  • 00:18:36.110 --> 00:18:37.200
  • SHOULD BE OVER? IF YOU'LL FILL
  • 00:18:37.200 --> 00:18:39.220
  • YOUR HORN WITH OIL, PUT ON THE
  • 00:18:39.220 --> 00:18:41.170
  • NEW ATTITUDE, START MOVING
  • 00:18:41.170 --> 00:18:43.060
  • FORWARD, YOU WILL SEE THE
  • 00:18:43.060 --> 00:18:44.130
  • BETTER THINGS THAT GOD HAS IN
  • 00:18:44.130 --> 00:18:46.140
  • STORE. IN LIFE WE ALL HAVE TO
  • 00:18:46.140 --> 00:18:48.120
  • DEAL WITH SOME KIND OF LOSS:
  • 00:18:48.120 --> 00:18:50.140
  • LOSS OF A LOVED ONE, LOSS OF A
  • 00:18:50.140 --> 00:18:51.150
  • JOB, LOSS OF A DREAM, LOSS OF A
  • 00:18:51.150 --> 00:18:53.030
  • RELATIONSHIP. IT'S TEMPTING TO
  • 00:18:53.030 --> 00:18:55.030
  • FEEL LIKE SOMETHING WAS TAKEN
  • 00:18:55.030 --> 00:18:57.190
  • AWAY FROM US, SOMETHING WAS
  • 00:18:57.190 --> 00:18:59.020
  • STOLEN.
  • 00:18:59.020 --> 00:19:01.010
  • YOU CAN HAVE ONE OF TWO
  • 00:19:01.010 --> 00:19:02.050
  • ATTITUDES. YOU CAN SAY, "GOD,
  • 00:19:02.050 --> 00:19:03.190
  • IT'S NOT FAIR. I DON'T
  • 00:19:03.190 --> 00:19:05.000
  • UNDERSTAND IT. HOW COULD YOU
  • 00:19:05.000 --> 00:19:06.140
  • LET THAT HAPPEN TO ME?"
  • 00:19:06.140 --> 00:19:08.150
  • YOU CAN GET ANGRY, BITTER, PASS
  • 00:19:08.150 --> 00:19:09.150
  • BLAME. BUT A MUCH BETTER
  • 00:19:09.150 --> 00:19:11.020
  • APPROACH IS TO TAKE THAT LOSS
  • 00:19:11.020 --> 00:19:13.190
  • AND SOW IT AS A SEED. SAY,
  • 00:19:13.190 --> 00:19:15.260
  • "GOD, I DON'T KNOW WHY THIS WAS
  • 00:19:15.260 --> 00:19:17.280
  • TAKEN AWAY BUT I'M NOT GOING TO
  • 00:19:17.280 --> 00:19:19.230
  • LET ANYONE STEAL FROM ME.
  • 00:19:19.230 --> 00:19:21.280
  • I'M SOWING THIS AS A SEED
  • 00:19:21.280 --> 00:19:23.210
  • TRUSTING YOU TO BRING ME A
  • 00:19:23.210 --> 00:19:25.070
  • HARVEST."
  • 00:19:25.070 --> 00:19:26.190
  • IN OTHER WORDS, YOU DIDN'T GET A
  • 00:19:26.190 --> 00:19:27.200
  • PROMOTION THAT YOU DESERVED.
  • 00:19:27.200 --> 00:19:29.150
  • DON'T GET BITTER. HAVE THE
  • 00:19:29.150 --> 00:19:30.170
  • ATTITUDE, "NOBODY STOLE THIS
  • 00:19:30.170 --> 00:19:32.030
  • PROMOTION FROM ME. GOD, I'M
  • 00:19:32.030 --> 00:19:33.290
  • SOWING IT AS A SEED BELIEVING
  • 00:19:33.290 --> 00:19:36.010
  • THAT YOU WILL BRING ME AN EVEN
  • 00:19:36.010 --> 00:19:37.070
  • BETTER POSITION."
  • 00:19:37.070 --> 00:19:39.050
  • A RELATIONSHIP DIDN'T WORK OUT.
  • 00:19:39.050 --> 00:19:40.190
  • "GOD, I'M NOT GOING TO LIVE MY
  • 00:19:40.190 --> 00:19:42.000
  • LIFE SOUR, THINKING THAT I'VE
  • 00:19:42.000 --> 00:19:43.140
  • WASTED MONTHS OR EVEN YEARS
  • 00:19:43.140 --> 00:19:46.030
  • OF MY LIFE. I'M SOWING THIS AS
  • 00:19:46.030 --> 00:19:48.180
  • A SEED KNOWING THAT YOU WILL
  • 00:19:48.180 --> 00:19:50.030
  • BRING THE RIGHT PERSON INTO MY
  • 00:19:50.030 --> 00:19:51.150
  • LIFE."
  • 00:19:51.150 --> 00:19:53.060
  • SEE, YOU CAN'T HAVE A VICTIM
  • 00:19:53.060 --> 00:19:54.140
  • MENTALITY. "OH, MAN. I'VE BEEN
  • 00:19:54.140 --> 00:19:55.240
  • ROBBED. MY LOVED ONE WAS TAKEN
  • 00:19:55.240 --> 00:19:57.070
  • AWAY."
  • 00:19:57.070 --> 00:19:58.170
  • NO, TURN IT AROUND. GIVE IT TO
  • 00:19:58.170 --> 00:19:59.260
  • GOD. SOW IT AS A SEED AND
  • 00:19:59.260 --> 00:20:01.220
  • YOU'LL BE AMAZED AT WHAT KIND
  • 00:20:01.220 --> 00:20:03.120
  • OF HARVEST GOD WILL BRING YOU.
  • 00:20:03.120 --> 00:20:05.200
  • I SAW A STORY ON THE NEWS
  • 00:20:05.200 --> 00:20:07.020
  • SEVERAL YEARS AGO ABOUT THIS
  • 00:20:07.020 --> 00:20:08.160
  • YOUNG MOUNTAIN CLIMBER.
  • 00:20:08.160 --> 00:20:10.090
  • HE WAS IN A REMOTE SECTION OF
  • 00:20:10.090 --> 00:20:11.210
  • UTAH HIKING THROUGH THE CANYON
  • 00:20:11.210 --> 00:20:14.070
  • ALL ALONE WHEN SUDDENLY THIS 800
  • 00:20:14.070 --> 00:20:15.280
  • POUND BOULDER SHIFTED AND HIS
  • 00:20:15.280 --> 00:20:17.290
  • RIGHT ARM BECAME STUCK. FOR
  • 00:20:17.290 --> 00:20:20.260
  • FIVE DAYS HE TRIED EVERYTHING
  • 00:20:20.260 --> 00:20:22.150
  • HE COULD TO FREE HIMSELF.
  • 00:20:22.150 --> 00:20:24.150
  • HE HAD A SMALL POCKETKNIFE.
  • 00:20:24.150 --> 00:20:26.050
  • HOUR AFTER HOUR HE CHIPPED AWAY
  • 00:20:26.050 --> 00:20:28.030
  • AT THAT BOULDER TO NO AVAIL.
  • 00:20:28.030 --> 00:20:30.110
  • WHEN THAT DIDN'T WORK HE TRIED
  • 00:20:30.110 --> 00:20:31.150
  • TO USE SOME OF HIS CLIMBING
  • 00:20:31.150 --> 00:20:32.230
  • EQUIPMENT TO SOMEHOW SHIFT THE
  • 00:20:32.230 --> 00:20:34.210
  • ROCK. AGAIN, IT WOULDN'T EVEN
  • 00:20:34.210 --> 00:20:36.110
  • BUDGE. ON THE THIRD DAY, HE RAN
  • 00:20:36.250 --> 00:20:39.250
  • OUT OF FOOD AND WATER. BY THIS
  • 00:20:39.250 --> 00:20:41.240
  • TIME HIS ARM WAS NO LONGER
  • 00:20:41.240 --> 00:20:43.190
  • ALIVE. HE HAD NO FEELING IN IT,
  • 00:20:43.190 --> 00:20:45.220
  • HAD NO BLOOD GOING TO IT FOR
  • 00:20:45.220 --> 00:20:48.080
  • DAYS. IT WAS COLD, HARD, STIFF.
  • 00:20:48.080 --> 00:20:50.240
  • IT LOOKED LIKE HE WAS GOING TO
  • 00:20:51.020 --> 00:20:54.020
  • DIE WITH IT. IT DIDN'T SEEM
  • 00:20:54.020 --> 00:20:55.040
  • LIKE THERE WAS ANY WAY OUT.
  • 00:20:55.040 --> 00:20:56.190
  • BUT ON THE FIFTH DAY HE MADE A
  • 00:20:56.190 --> 00:20:58.030
  • DECISION TO DO THE UNTHINKABLE.
  • 00:20:58.040 --> 00:21:01.060
  • HE KNEW HE HAD TO CUT OFF HIS
  • 00:21:01.060 --> 00:21:02.140
  • ARM IF HE WAS GOING TO BE ABLE
  • 00:21:02.140 --> 00:21:04.050
  • TO LIVE. HE PUT A TOURNIQUET ON
  • 00:21:04.050 --> 00:21:05.230
  • UP HERE. SOMEHOW, SOMEWAY, HE
  • 00:21:05.230 --> 00:21:08.020
  • AMPUTATED HIS OWN ARM.
  • 00:21:08.020 --> 00:21:11.020
  • HE THEN WALKED FOR TWO MILES.
  • 00:21:11.020 --> 00:21:12.160
  • SOMEBODY RAN INTO HIM.
  • 00:21:12.160 --> 00:21:14.080
  • MIRACULOUSLY, HIS LIFE WAS
  • 00:21:14.080 --> 00:21:15.090
  • SAVED.
  • 00:21:15.090 --> 00:21:17.000
  • IN A SENSE, WE ALL COME TO
  • 00:21:17.000 --> 00:21:18.180
  • PLACES LIKE THIS IN LIFE WHERE
  • 00:21:18.180 --> 00:21:20.190
  • SOMETHING IS OVER AND DONE.
  • 00:21:20.190 --> 00:21:23.150
  • THERE IS NOTHING MORE WE CAN DO
  • 00:21:23.150 --> 00:21:24.240
  • ABOUT IT. WE MAY NOT UNDERSTAND
  • 00:21:24.240 --> 00:21:27.030
  • IT. IT MAY NOT HAVE BEEN FAIR.
  • 00:21:27.030 --> 00:21:28.220
  • BUT NONE OF THAT CHANGES THE
  • 00:21:28.220 --> 00:21:30.190
  • FACT THAT IT'S NO LONGER ALIVE.
  • 00:21:30.210 --> 00:21:33.210
  • WE COULD EITHER HOLD ONTO IT AND
  • 00:21:33.210 --> 00:21:35.200
  • LET IT DRAG US DOWN AND DEFEAT
  • 00:21:35.200 --> 00:21:37.060
  • US WITH IT OR LIKE THIS YOUNG
  • 00:21:37.060 --> 00:21:39.160
  • MAN, AS DIFFICULT AS IT MAY BE,
  • 00:21:39.160 --> 00:21:42.100
  • WE CAN CHOOSE TO BREAK FREE,
  • 00:21:42.100 --> 00:21:44.240
  • MOVE FORWARD SO WE CAN
  • 00:21:44.240 --> 00:21:46.130
  • EXPERIENCE A NEW BEGINNING.
  • 00:21:46.130 --> 00:21:48.270
  • IF SOMETHING IS DEAD IN YOUR
  • 00:21:48.270 --> 00:21:50.090
  • LIFE DON'T DIE WITH IT.
  • 00:21:50.090 --> 00:21:52.230
  • IF SOMETHING IS OVER AND DONE
  • 00:21:52.230 --> 00:21:54.160
  • DON'T HOLD ONTO IT. LET IT GO.
  • 00:21:54.160 --> 00:21:57.020
  • SAY, "GOD, THEY HURT ME. IT
  • 00:21:57.020 --> 00:21:58.010
  • WASN'T RIGHT BUT I'M NOT GOING
  • 00:21:58.010 --> 00:21:59.120
  • TO DWELL ON IT. I'M NOT GOING
  • 00:21:59.120 --> 00:22:00.200
  • TO RE-LIVE THAT MEMORY. I'M
  • 00:22:00.200 --> 00:22:02.110
  • GOING TO CUT IT OFF AND MOVE
  • 00:22:02.110 --> 00:22:03.140
  • FORWARD."
  • 00:22:03.140 --> 00:22:05.120
  • SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO TAKE BOLD
  • 00:22:05.120 --> 00:22:06.090
  • MEASURES TO KEEP MAKING
  • 00:22:06.090 --> 00:22:07.090
  • PROGRESS. IF A DREAM DIED DON'T
  • 00:22:07.090 --> 00:22:09.040
  • DIE WITH IT. CUT OFF THE BROKEN
  • 00:22:09.040 --> 00:22:11.020
  • DREAM. CUT OFF THE RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:22:11.020 --> 00:22:12.290
  • THAT DIDN'T WORK OUT.
  • 00:22:12.290 --> 00:22:14.180
  • CUT OFF THE SELF-PITY,
  • 00:22:14.180 --> 00:22:16.220
  • THE UNFORGIVENESS, THE NEGATIVE
  • 00:22:16.220 --> 00:22:17.130
  • ATTITUDE.
  • 00:22:17.130 --> 00:22:18.270
  • WHERE YOU'RE UNWILLING TO WALK
  • 00:22:18.270 --> 00:22:20.130
  • AWAY IS WHERE YOU'RE GOING TO
  • 00:22:20.130 --> 00:22:21.240
  • BECOME STUCK.
  • 00:22:21.240 --> 00:22:24.190
  • IN THE SCRIPTURE, JOB WENT
  • 00:22:24.190 --> 00:22:25.160
  • THROUGH A NINE MONTH PERIOD
  • 00:22:25.160 --> 00:22:27.190
  • WHERE EVERYTHING THAT COULD GO
  • 00:22:27.190 --> 00:22:28.170
  • WRONG DID. HE LOST HIS HEALTH,
  • 00:22:28.170 --> 00:22:29.230
  • HIS BUSINESS, HIS FAMILY.
  • 00:22:29.230 --> 00:22:31.250
  • AT ONE POINT IT SAYS, "HE SAT
  • 00:22:31.250 --> 00:22:33.190
  • DOWN AMONG THE ASHES."
  • 00:22:33.190 --> 00:22:36.140
  • HE WAS SO OVERWHELMED, SO
  • 00:22:36.140 --> 00:22:38.130
  • DISTRAUGHT, HE THOUGHT, "THIS
  • 00:22:38.130 --> 00:22:39.110
  • IS IT. I'LL NEVER BE HAPPY
  • 00:22:39.110 --> 00:22:40.190
  • AGAIN."
  • 00:22:40.190 --> 00:22:42.020
  • WHEN YOU GO THROUGH A LOSS, A
  • 00:22:42.020 --> 00:22:43.110
  • DISAPPOINTMENT, THERE IS NOTHING
  • 00:22:43.110 --> 00:22:44.170
  • THE ENEMY WOULD LOVE TO SEE YOU
  • 00:22:44.170 --> 00:22:46.120
  • DO ANY MORE THAN TO SIT DOWN
  • 00:22:46.120 --> 00:22:49.110
  • AMONG THE ASHES, GET BITTER,
  • 00:22:49.110 --> 00:22:51.210
  • HOLD ON TO SOMETHING THAT IS
  • 00:22:51.210 --> 00:22:53.020
  • DEAD, LOSE YOUR ENTHUSIASM FOR
  • 00:22:53.020 --> 00:22:54.140
  • LIFE.
  • 00:22:54.140 --> 00:22:55.190
  • THAT'S WHAT JOB DID FOR A PERIOD
  • 00:22:55.190 --> 00:22:57.050
  • OF TIME; HE SAT DOWN. BUT
  • 00:22:57.050 --> 00:22:59.250
  • HERE'S THE WHOLE CATCH; JOB
  • 00:22:59.250 --> 00:23:00.260
  • DIDN'T STAY DOWN. HE GOT HIS
  • 00:23:00.260 --> 00:23:02.180
  • FIRE BACK, GOT HIS PASSION
  • 00:23:02.180 --> 00:23:04.140
  • BACK. HE ROSE UP OUT OF THOSE
  • 00:23:04.140 --> 00:23:06.040
  • ASHES. HE SAID, "THIS MAY BE
  • 00:23:06.040 --> 00:23:08.080
  • DIFFICULT BUT I KNOW MY
  • 00:23:08.080 --> 00:23:10.080
  • REDEEMER LIVES. I KNOW MY GOD
  • 00:23:10.080 --> 00:23:11.160
  • IS STILL ON THE THRONE."
  • 00:23:11.160 --> 00:23:13.200
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:23:13.200 --> 00:23:15.040
  • "I KNOW I WOULDN'T BE ALIVE

  • UNLESS THERE WAS SOMETHING
  • 00:23:16.240 --> 00:23:17.180
  • GREATER IN MY FUTURE."
  • 00:23:17.180 --> 00:23:19.010
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS JOB CAME OUT
  • 00:23:19.010 --> 00:23:20.280
  • WITH TWICE WHAT HE HAD BEFORE.
  • 00:23:20.280 --> 00:23:22.070
  • SOME OF YOU TODAY, LIFE HASN'T
  • 00:23:22.210 --> 00:23:25.210

  • ONTO SOMETHING THAT DIDN'T WORK
  • 00:23:33.000 --> 00:23:34.160
  • OUT, BITTER, DISCOURAGED.
  • 00:23:34.160 --> 00:23:36.010
  • GOD IS SAYING, "IF YOU WILL LET

  • GO OF THE ASHES, IF YOU WILL PUT
  • 00:23:38.240 --> 00:23:40.200
  • ON A NEW ATTITUDE, I WILL DO FOR
  • 00:23:40.200 --> 00:23:42.090
