  • AFTER LOSING HIS WIFE TO CANCER,
  • 00:00:06.150 --> 00:00:08.120
  • RICK RIGSBY'S WORLD WAS TURNED UPSIDE DOWN.
  • 00:00:08.150 --> 00:00:11.210
  • - AT THE CASKET --
  • 00:00:11.240 --> 00:00:13.250
  • AT THE CASKET, JESUS DIDN'T SAY TO ME
  • 00:00:13.280 --> 00:00:16.230
  • -- I COULD HEAR HIS VOICE.
  • 00:00:16.260 --> 00:00:18.230
  • HE DIDN'T SAY TO ME, I'M GOING TO FIX IT.
  • 00:00:18.260 --> 00:00:20.240
  • HE DIDN'T SAY TO ME, I'M GOING TO ANSWER YOUR PRAYERS
  • 00:00:20.270 --> 00:00:22.240
  • THE WAY YOU WANT THEM ANSWERED.
  • 00:00:22.270 --> 00:00:24.240
  • HE DIDN'T SAY TO ME, I'M GOING TO RAISE HER UP.
  • 00:00:24.270 --> 00:00:27.020
  • HE ASKED ME A QUESTION, "DO YOU TRUST ME?"
  • 00:00:27.050 --> 00:00:29.230
  • LETTING GOD USE OUR PAIN
  • 00:00:29.260 --> 00:00:31.230
  • TO IMPACT THE WORLD AROUND US.
  • 00:00:31.260 --> 00:00:33.230
  • NEXT ON LIFE TODAY!
  • 00:00:33.260 --> 00:00:36.020

  • WHEN PEOPLE ARE WATCHING US,
  • 00:01:05.140 --> 00:01:06.180
  • SO I HAD ANOTHER BIRTHDAY.
  • 00:01:07.230 --> 00:01:08.260
  • YOU DON'T EVER WANT ME
  • 00:01:08.260 --> 00:01:10.000
  • TO TELL THEM WHEN
  • 00:01:10.000 --> 00:01:11.040
  • YOU'LL HAVE A BIRTHDAY.
  • 00:01:11.040 --> 00:01:12.080
  • Betty: I'M A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:01:12.080 --> 00:01:13.120
  • YOUNGER THAN YOU.
  • 00:01:13.120 --> 00:01:14.160
  • James: EXACTLY! BELIEVE ME.

  • James: LET ME SAY THIS TO YOU.

  • TO APPRECIATE THE FACT
  • 00:01:45.090 --> 00:01:46.160
  • THAT WE'VE GOT ETERNITY
  • 00:01:46.160 --> 00:01:47.210
  • FOREVER IN THE PRESENCE
  • 00:01:47.210 --> 00:01:49.000
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:01:49.000 --> 00:01:50.040
  • SO MANY OF OUR FRIENDS
  • 00:01:50.040 --> 00:01:51.120
  • ARE THERE.
  • 00:01:51.120 --> 00:01:52.160
  • I WANT TO TELL YOU SOMETHING.
  • 00:01:52.160 --> 00:01:53.220
  • WE'RE GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:01:53.220 --> 00:01:54.280
  • DR. DAVID JEREMIAH

  • TEACHING ON WINDOWS OF HEAVEN,
  • 00:01:56.020 --> 00:01:57.110
  • TO SHOW WHAT IT'S LIKE.
  • 00:01:57.110 --> 00:01:58.160
  • BUT GOD TOLD US HE WANTS US,
  • 00:01:58.160 --> 00:02:01.040
  • THINK ABOUT THIS,
  • 00:02:01.040 --> 00:02:03.000
  • TO PRAY THAT THE FATHER'S WILL
  • 00:02:03.000 --> 00:02:04.220
  • WILL BE DONE ON EARTH
  • 00:02:04.220 --> 00:02:07.040
  • BECAUSE "HIS KINGDOM COME"
  • 00:02:07.040 --> 00:02:09.180
  • HE SAID PRAY, AND JESUS SAID,
  • 00:02:09.180 --> 00:02:11.100
  • "IT'S COME."
  • 00:02:11.100 --> 00:02:12.190
  • IT'S IN YOU.
  • 00:02:12.190 --> 00:02:13.270
  • NOT OF THE WORLD.
  • 00:02:13.270 --> 00:02:15.090
  • BUT WE'RE TO MAKE
  • 00:02:15.090 --> 00:02:16.170

  • THROUGH US
  • 00:02:20.140 --> 00:02:22.050
  • AS IT IS IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:02:22.050 --> 00:02:23.200
  • THAT MEANS
  • 00:02:23.200 --> 00:02:24.240
  • THAT IF WE REALLY FULFILL
  • 00:02:24.240 --> 00:02:26.030
  • THE FATHER'S HEART'S DESIRE
  • 00:02:26.060 --> 00:02:29.060
  • HE'S GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:02:29.060 --> 00:02:30.160
  • A FAMILY THROUGH WHICH
  • 00:02:30.160 --> 00:02:31.220
  • HE FLOWS HIS LOVE,
  • 00:02:31.220 --> 00:02:33.010
  • AND HIS REDEMPTIVE PURPOSE
  • 00:02:33.010 --> 00:02:34.100
  • AND HIS TRANSFORMING TRUTH;
  • 00:02:34.100 --> 00:02:36.190
  • AND THE RELIABLE STANDARDS
  • 00:02:36.190 --> 00:02:37.260
  • UPON WHICH WE CAN BUILD,
  • 00:02:37.260 --> 00:02:39.000
  • JESUS SAID,
  • 00:02:39.000 --> 00:02:40.050
  • ON AN UNSHAKEABLE ROCK.
  • 00:02:40.050 --> 00:02:42.040
  • WE'RE SEEING THINGS
  • 00:02:42.040 --> 00:02:43.150
  • COMING APART
  • 00:02:43.150 --> 00:02:44.220
  • BECAUSE WE'VE CAST ASIDE
  • 00:02:44.220 --> 00:02:45.260
  • THE FOUNDATION OF TRUTH.
  • 00:02:45.260 --> 00:02:47.000

  • YOU MAY BE GETTING
  • 00:02:51.160 --> 00:02:52.200
  • A LITTLE OLDER.
  • 00:02:52.200 --> 00:02:53.210
  • I'M TELLING YOU WHAT,
  • 00:02:53.210 --> 00:02:54.220
  • WE'RE NOT WANTING TO GIVE

  • GOD'S GARDEN TO THE ENEMY,
  • 00:02:56.290 --> 00:02:58.040
  • TO THE DECEIVER.
  • 00:02:58.040 --> 00:02:59.090
  • WE WANT TO LET GOD BE GOD
  • 00:02:59.090 --> 00:03:02.080
  • IN THE LIFE OF HIS FAMILY
  • 00:03:02.080 --> 00:03:04.070
  • SO PEOPLE CAN BEHOLD
  • 00:03:04.070 --> 00:03:05.170
  • HIS GLORY
  • 00:03:05.170 --> 00:03:06.270
  • AND BE DRAWN TO HIM.
  • 00:03:06.270 --> 00:03:08.070
  • OUR GUEST, RICK RIGSBY,
  • 00:03:08.070 --> 00:03:10.090
  • BECAME VERY FAMOUS
  • 00:03:10.090 --> 00:03:13.010
  • DELIVERING A SPEECH,
  • 00:03:13.010 --> 00:03:14.170
  • "LESSONS I LEARNED
  • 00:03:14.170 --> 00:03:15.240
  • FROM A THIRD GRADE DROPOUT."
  • 00:03:15.240 --> 00:03:17.110
  • HE HAS A PH.D.
  • 00:03:17.110 --> 00:03:19.000
  • HE NOT ONLY GRADUATED
  • 00:03:19.000 --> 00:03:20.090
  • FROM LIBERTY, HE GOT PH.Ds.,
  • 00:03:20.090 --> 00:03:21.180
  • AND I HAVEN'T EVEN ASKED HIM
  • 00:03:21.180 --> 00:03:22.210
  • WHERE HE GOT THEM FROM.
  • 00:03:22.210 --> 00:03:23.270
  • I DIDN'T CARE.
  • 00:03:23.270 --> 00:03:25.010
  • BECAUSE I NEVER EVEN THOUGHT
  • 00:03:25.010 --> 00:03:26.060
  • I COULD ASPIRE TO THAT.
  • 00:03:26.060 --> 00:03:27.130
  • I DON'T EVEN HAVE
  • 00:03:27.130 --> 00:03:28.210
  • A COLLEGE DEGREE.
  • 00:03:28.210 --> 00:03:29.270
  • SO I JUST APPRECIATE THE FACT
  • 00:03:29.270 --> 00:03:31.020
  • THAT RICK RIGSBY WILL EVEN
  • 00:03:31.020 --> 00:03:32.060
  • SIT HERE AND TALK TO ME.
  • 00:03:32.060 --> 00:03:33.230
  • BUT HERE'S A MAN
  • 00:03:33.230 --> 00:03:35.090
  • THAT REALLY HAS GOD ON HIM
  • 00:03:35.090 --> 00:03:36.230
  • BECAUSE OF SOMETHING
  • 00:03:36.230 --> 00:03:38.000
  • HE LEARNED FROM A FATHER
  • 00:03:38.000 --> 00:03:39.010
  • THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE DON'T --
  • 00:03:39.010 --> 00:03:40.050
  • I DIDN'T HAVE A FATHER.
  • 00:03:40.050 --> 00:03:41.130
  • I WANT YOU TO LISTEN TO HIM.
  • 00:03:41.130 --> 00:03:43.270
  • I WANT YOU TO WELCOME HIM
  • 00:03:43.270 --> 00:03:45.030
  • BECAUSE I THINK
  • 00:03:45.030 --> 00:03:46.100
  • HE IS GOING TO HELP
  • 00:03:46.100 --> 00:03:47.120
  • GET GOD'S ARMS OF LOVE
  • 00:03:47.120 --> 00:03:48.170
  • AROUND A HURTING WORLD.
  • 00:03:48.170 --> 00:03:49.230
  • WOULD YOU WELCOME DR. RIGSBY?
  • 00:03:49.230 --> 00:03:51.100

  • THANK YOU SO MUCH,
  • 00:03:52.290 --> 00:03:54.190
  • JAMES AND BETTY.
  • 00:03:54.190 --> 00:03:55.290
  • James: I'VE SAID TO YOU
  • 00:03:57.060 --> 00:03:58.190
  • THAT I DON'T BELIEVE
  • 00:03:58.190 --> 00:04:00.020
  • WE HAVE TO GIVE OUR MARRIAGES,
  • 00:04:00.020 --> 00:04:02.030
  • I DON'T BELIEVE WE HAVE
  • 00:04:02.030 --> 00:04:03.100
  • OUR SUBDIVISION,
  • 00:04:04.150 --> 00:04:05.200
  • OUR COMMUNITY,
  • 00:04:05.200 --> 00:04:06.220
  • WE DON'T HAVE TO GIVE
  • 00:04:06.220 --> 00:04:07.270
  • OUR CITY, OUR COUNTY,
  • 00:04:07.270 --> 00:04:09.020
  • OUR STATE OR OUR NATION
  • 00:04:09.020 --> 00:04:10.090
  • TO THE TRESPASSER,
  • 00:04:10.090 --> 00:04:11.170
  • THE DECEIVER, THE DIVIDER,
  • 00:04:11.170 --> 00:04:14.030
  • THE DESTROYER.
  • 00:04:14.030 --> 00:04:15.110
  • I DON'T THINK WE HAVE TO.
  • 00:04:15.110 --> 00:04:16.170
  • THIS IS GOD'S GARDEN.
  • 00:04:16.170 --> 00:04:17.200
  • IT CAN BE A FRUITFUL GARDEN.
  • 00:04:17.200 --> 00:04:18.200
  • AND HE TOLD US
  • 00:04:18.200 --> 00:04:19.240
  • WE'RE TO BE OVERSEERS,
  • 00:04:19.240 --> 00:04:21.030
  • AND I'M NOT SURE
  • 00:04:21.030 --> 00:04:22.110
  • WE'VE BEEN THE BEST OVERSEERS
  • 00:04:22.110 --> 00:04:23.170
  • AS HIS FAMILY.
  • 00:04:23.170 --> 00:04:24.240
  • SO YOU UNDERSTAND
  • 00:04:24.240 --> 00:04:26.060
  • SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
  • 00:04:26.060 --> 00:04:27.200
  • YOU TOLD ME
  • 00:04:27.200 --> 00:04:29.000
  • YOU ARE TOTALLY COMMITTED
  • 00:04:29.000 --> 00:04:30.080
  • TO SEEING THE GARDEN OF GOD
  • 00:04:30.080 --> 00:04:31.150
  • BEGIN TO BRING FORTH
  • 00:04:31.150 --> 00:04:32.210
  • THE KIND OF FRUIT
  • 00:04:32.210 --> 00:04:33.280
  • THAT GIVES HIM GLORY.
  • 00:04:33.280 --> 00:04:35.010
  • AND YOU DON'T THINK
  • 00:04:35.010 --> 00:04:36.070
  • IT IS TOO LATE FOR AMERICA.
  • 00:04:36.070 --> 00:04:37.110
  • YOU DON'T THINK IT'S TOO LATE
  • 00:04:37.110 --> 00:04:38.170
  • FOR THE CHURCH HERE
  • 00:04:38.170 --> 00:04:39.230
  • AND AROUND THE WORLD
  • 00:04:39.230 --> 00:04:40.290

  • 00:04:40.290 --> 00:04:42.020
  • TO THE WORLD AND THE FATHER.
  • 00:04:42.020 --> 00:04:43.120
  • SO I WANT TO HEAR

  • A FATHER
  • 00:04:51.190 --> 00:04:53.000
  • THAT TOLD YOU THE TRUTH.
  • 00:04:53.000 --> 00:04:54.080
  • I WANT YOU TO TAKE US

  • 00:05:10.000 --> 00:05:11.040
  • COMES OUT OF YOU, JAMES,
  • 00:05:11.040 --> 00:05:12.080
  • AND YOU START PREACHING.
  • 00:05:12.080 --> 00:05:13.120
  • YOU START PREACHING.
  • 00:05:13.120 --> 00:05:14.160
  • YOUR SKIN ACTUALLY
  • 00:05:14.160 --> 00:05:15.180
  • STARTS TURNING DARKER.
  • 00:05:15.180 --> 00:05:16.230
  • IT'S AN AMAZING THING!
  • 00:05:16.230 --> 00:05:17.260
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:05:17.260 --> 00:05:18.290
  • James: I'M ALL RIGHT WITH IT.
  • 00:05:18.290 --> 00:05:20.020
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:05:20.020 --> 00:05:21.050
  • Rick: Y'ALL ARE A BLESSING
  • 00:05:21.050 --> 00:05:22.080
  • TO THE BODY OF CHRIST.
  • 00:05:22.080 --> 00:05:23.110
  • THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME HERE.
  • 00:05:23.110 --> 00:05:24.140
  • YOU KNOW WHAT'S INTERESTING
  • 00:05:24.140 --> 00:05:26.200
  • IS THAT WE LIVE IN A TIME
  • 00:05:26.200 --> 00:05:28.150
  • THAT IS JUST SIMPLY VOID
  • 00:05:28.150 --> 00:05:29.250
  • OF COMMON SENSE
  • 00:05:29.250 --> 00:05:31.030
  • BECAUSE IT IS VOID OF GOD.
  • 00:05:31.030 --> 00:05:33.260
  • AND IT IS NOT TOO LATE.
  • 00:05:33.260 --> 00:05:35.070
  • HEAR O ISRAEL!
  • 00:05:35.070 --> 00:05:36.140
  • THE LORD IS OUR GOD.
  • 00:05:36.140 --> 00:05:37.220
  • THE LORD IS ONE.
  • 00:05:37.220 --> 00:05:38.220
  • YOU SHALL LOVE
  • 00:05:38.220 --> 00:05:39.240
  • THE LORD YOUR GOD
  • 00:05:39.240 --> 00:05:41.000
  • WITH ALL YOUR HEART,
  • 00:05:41.000 --> 00:05:42.010
  • WITH ALL YOUR SOUL,
  • 00:05:42.010 --> 00:05:43.020
  • WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT --
  • 00:05:43.020 --> 00:05:44.050
  • AND THEN DO WHAT?
  • 00:05:44.050 --> 00:05:45.090
  • TEACH IT!
  • 00:05:45.090 --> 00:05:46.120
  • START IN YOUR HOME,
  • 00:05:46.120 --> 00:05:47.140
  • THEN MODEL IT.
  • 00:05:47.140 --> 00:05:48.180
  • HARVARD BUSINESS REVIEW,
  • 00:05:48.180 --> 00:05:49.210
  • SEPTEMBER 2004, I BELIEVE,
  • 00:05:49.210 --> 00:05:51.000
  • IT TALKED ABOUT THE WORST
  • 00:05:51.000 --> 00:05:53.100
  • KIND OF TEACHING METHOD
  • 00:05:53.100 --> 00:05:54.170
  • IS LECTURING.
  • 00:05:54.170 --> 00:05:55.220
  • THAT IF YOU WANT TO GET
  • 00:05:55.220 --> 00:05:56.280
  • THE INTENDED MESSAGE ACROSS,
  • 00:05:56.280 --> 00:05:58.070
  • MODEL IT.
  • 00:05:58.070 --> 00:05:59.180
  • I WONDER
  • 00:05:59.180 --> 00:06:00.280
  • WHO THE GREATEST MODEL WAS
  • 00:06:00.280 --> 00:06:02.040
  • ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH.
  • 00:06:02.040 --> 00:06:04.000
  • I HAD A MOTHER AND FATHER
  • 00:06:04.000 --> 00:06:05.170
  • WHO MODELED IT.
  • 00:06:05.170 --> 00:06:07.000
  • I HAD A THIRD GRADE
  • 00:06:07.000 --> 00:06:08.060
  • DROPOUT DADDY
  • 00:06:08.060 --> 00:06:09.120
  • QUOTING MICHELANGELO.
  • 00:06:09.120 --> 00:06:10.160
  • I'M IN THE '60s.
  • 00:06:10.160 --> 00:06:11.250
  • I'M GOING, "COME ON!"
  • 00:06:11.250 --> 00:06:13.110
  • AND HE'S SAYING, "SON."
  • 00:06:13.110 --> 00:06:14.160
  • "YES, SIR."
  • 00:06:14.160 --> 00:06:15.170
  • "I'M NOT GOING
  • 00:06:15.170 --> 00:06:16.210
  • TO HAVE A PROBLEM, SON,
  • 00:06:16.210 --> 00:06:17.240
  • IF YOU AIM HIGH AND MISS.
  • 00:06:17.240 --> 00:06:18.270
  • BUT I'M GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:06:18.270 --> 00:06:19.280
  • A REALLY ISSUE
  • 00:06:19.280 --> 00:06:21.010
  • IF YOU AIM LOW AND HIT."
  • 00:06:21.010 --> 00:06:22.020
  • MY FATHER WAS NOT INTERESTED,
  • 00:06:22.020 --> 00:06:23.020
  • WATCH THIS,
  • 00:06:23.020 --> 00:06:24.070
  • HE WASN'T INTERESTED
  • 00:06:24.070 --> 00:06:25.110
  • IN REARING "BLACK" MEN.
  • 00:06:25.110 --> 00:06:26.160
  • HE WAS INTERESTED
  • 00:06:26.160 --> 00:06:27.190
  • IN REARING GODLY MEN
  • 00:06:27.190 --> 00:06:28.280
  • WHO WOULD IMPACT THE WORLD.
  • 00:06:28.280 --> 00:06:30.270
  • SO THERE WAS A STANDARD
  • 00:06:30.270 --> 00:06:32.110
  • EVERY SINGLE DAY.
  • 00:06:32.110 --> 00:06:33.150
  • MY DAD WAS A SIMPLE COOK.
  • 00:06:33.150 --> 00:06:34.240
  • HE WASN'T COLLEGE EDUCATED.
  • 00:06:34.240 --> 00:06:36.070
  • HE NEVER MADE IT
  • 00:06:36.070 --> 00:06:37.100
  • PAST THE THIRD GRADE.
  • 00:06:37.100 --> 00:06:38.200
  • JUST BECAUSE HE LEFT SCHOOL
  • 00:06:38.200 --> 00:06:39.270
  • THOUGH DOESN'T MEAN
  • 00:06:39.270 --> 00:06:41.020
  • HIS EDUCATION STOPPED.
  • 00:06:41.020 --> 00:06:42.020
  • MARK TWAIN ONCE SAID,
  • 00:06:42.020 --> 00:06:43.050
  • "I'VE NEVER ALLOWED
  • 00:06:43.050 --> 00:06:44.060
  • MY SCHOOLING TO GET
  • 00:06:44.060 --> 00:06:45.110
  • IN THE WAY OF MY EDUCATION."
  • 00:06:45.110 --> 00:06:46.140
  • HE WAS FILLED
  • 00:06:46.140 --> 00:06:47.170
  • WITH GOD'S WISDOM.
  • 00:06:47.170 --> 00:06:48.200
  • James: YOU'VE BEEN THROUGH
  • 00:06:48.200 --> 00:06:49.270
  • SOME EXPERIENCES IN YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:06:49.270 --> 00:06:51.030
  • NOT ONLY WITH
  • 00:06:51.030 --> 00:06:52.120
  • A THIRD GRADE DROPOUT
  • 00:06:52.120 --> 00:06:53.230
  • BUT YOU HAD A RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:06:53.230 --> 00:06:56.000
  • AND YOU ACTUALLY CAME AND
  • 00:06:56.000 --> 00:06:57.090
  • SHARED WITH OUR SON, RANDY,
  • 00:06:57.090 --> 00:06:58.220
  • AND WITH SHEILA WALSH,
  • 00:06:58.220 --> 00:07:00.220
  • AND ABOUT AN EXPERIENCE
  • 00:07:02.030 --> 00:07:03.210
  • THAT MOST PEOPLE
  • 00:07:03.210 --> 00:07:05.000
  • COULD HAVE SAID OKAY,
  • 00:07:05.000 --> 00:07:06.100
  • SO CATASTROPHIC.
  • 00:07:06.100 --> 00:07:07.210
  • THAT COULD HAVE BEEN
  • 00:07:09.280 --> 00:07:11.030
  • TO MANY DESTRUCTIVE.
  • 00:07:11.030 --> 00:07:13.050
  • WE NEED TO HEAR THAT
  • 00:07:13.050 --> 00:07:15.100
  • BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE THERE ARE
  • 00:07:15.100 --> 00:07:16.170
  • SO MANY PEOPLE RIGHT NOW
  • 00:07:16.170 --> 00:07:18.060
  • IN SOME WAY BEING TOUCHED
  • 00:07:18.060 --> 00:07:20.090
  • BY SOMETHING THAT JUST
  • 00:07:20.090 --> 00:07:21.190
  • REALLY RIPS THEIR HEART --
  • 00:07:21.190 --> 00:07:22.290
  • LIKE US LOSING A DAUGHTER.
  • 00:07:22.290 --> 00:07:24.100
  • YOU LOSE A CHILD IT'S HEAVY.
  • 00:07:24.100 --> 00:07:26.060
  • A LOT OF OUR FRIENDS
  • 00:07:26.060 --> 00:07:27.160
  • RIGHT NOW
  • 00:07:27.160 --> 00:07:28.240
  • ARE LOSING SPOUSES.
  • 00:07:28.240 --> 00:07:29.290
  • SOME OF THEM ARE LOSING THEM
  • 00:07:29.290 --> 00:07:31.030
  • TO ALZHEIMER'S
  • 00:07:31.030 --> 00:07:32.090
  • SO IT IS NOT THE SAME PERSON.
  • 00:07:32.090 --> 00:07:33.240
  • THERE IS A LOT OF WEIGHT
  • 00:07:33.240 --> 00:07:35.020
  • THAT COMES WITH LOSS.
  • 00:07:35.020 --> 00:07:36.130
  • YOU TALKED ABOUT THAT
  • 00:07:36.130 --> 00:07:37.220
  • WHEN YOU WERE HERE BEFORE.
  • 00:07:37.220 --> 00:07:38.290
  • I'D REALLY LIKE YOU TO SHARE
  • 00:07:38.290 --> 00:07:40.070
  • THAT INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE
  • 00:07:40.070 --> 00:07:41.150
  • OF WHAT CAME OF IT.
  • 00:07:41.150 --> 00:07:42.230
  • Rick: THANKS
  • 00:07:42.230 --> 00:07:43.290
  • FOR THE OPPORTUNITY.
  • 00:07:43.290 --> 00:07:45.080
  • I'M 63.
  • 00:07:45.080 --> 00:07:46.170
  • THE FIRST 40 YEARS OF MY LIFE
  • 00:07:46.170 --> 00:07:47.270
  • I MADE LIFE ABOUT ME.
  • 00:07:47.270 --> 00:07:48.290
  • I HAVE NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT.
  • 00:07:48.290 --> 00:07:50.060
  • AND I WAS A CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:07:50.060 --> 00:07:51.260
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:07:51.260 --> 00:07:53.060
  • I HAD A CHARMED LIFE.
  • 00:07:53.060 --> 00:07:54.100
  • I WASN'T JUST A REPORTER,
  • 00:07:54.100 --> 00:07:55.150
  • I WAS
  • 00:07:55.150 --> 00:07:56.230
  • AN AWARD-WINNING REPORTER.
  • 00:07:56.230 --> 00:07:58.010
  • I WAS A GRADUATE STUDENT
  • 00:07:58.010 --> 00:07:59.120
  • AFTER MY YEARS IN TELEVISION
  • 00:07:59.120 --> 00:08:00.190
  • THAT WAS TOLD
  • 00:08:00.190 --> 00:08:01.240
  • BY A HIGH SCHOOL COUNSELOR
  • 00:08:01.240 --> 00:08:02.290
  • AND NOW I'M GRADUATING
  • 00:08:04.120 --> 00:08:05.180
  • WITH A PH.D. WITH A 377.
  • 00:08:05.180 --> 00:08:07.160
  • I DIDN'T REALIZE
  • 00:08:07.160 --> 00:08:08.210
  • UNTIL I WAS IN MY 30s
  • 00:08:08.210 --> 00:08:09.270
  • THAT I HAD
  • 00:08:09.270 --> 00:08:11.030
  • THEN I STARTED GOING
  • 00:08:12.110 --> 00:08:13.200
  • TO DIFFERENT UNIVERSITIES.
  • 00:08:13.200 --> 00:08:14.260
  • MY LAST EMPLOYER
  • 00:08:14.260 --> 00:08:16.030
  • WAS TEXAS A&M.
  • 00:08:16.030 --> 00:08:17.060
  • I WAS TEACHER OF THE YEAR
  • 00:08:17.060 --> 00:08:18.160
  • A COUPLE OF YEARS.
  • 00:08:18.160 --> 00:08:19.240
  • BUT ALONG THE WAY, TRAGEDY.
  • 00:08:19.240 --> 00:08:22.040
  • BECAUSE I HAD MADE LIFE
  • 00:08:22.040 --> 00:08:23.170
  • ALL ABOUT ME
  • 00:08:23.170 --> 00:08:24.270
  • AND MY ACCOMPLISHMENTS.
  • 00:08:24.270 --> 00:08:25.290
  • WATCH THIS.
  • 00:08:25.290 --> 00:08:27.060
  • THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE
  • 00:08:27.060 --> 00:08:28.130
  • THAT ARE LISTENING RIGHT NOW
  • 00:08:28.130 --> 00:08:29.180
  • THAT WANT TO SERVE GOD
  • 00:08:29.180 --> 00:08:30.250
  • ON THEIR TERMS.
  • 00:08:30.250 --> 00:08:32.000
  • AND SO WHAT DO WE DO?
  • 00:08:32.000 --> 00:08:33.040
  • WE REDUCE HIS WORD
  • 00:08:33.040 --> 00:08:34.080
  • TO LITTLE BITE-SIZE MORSELS
  • 00:08:34.080 --> 00:08:35.120
  • OR WE IGNORE HIM ALL TOGETHER.
  • 00:08:35.120 --> 00:08:37.000
  • THAT WAS RICK RIGSBY.
  • 00:08:37.000 --> 00:08:38.270
  • AND EVERYTHING,
  • 00:08:38.270 --> 00:08:40.140
  • ROLLED OUT HIS FAVOR,
  • 00:08:40.140 --> 00:08:42.040
  • EVERYTHING!
  • 00:08:42.040 --> 00:08:43.060
  • I CAN REMEMBER HIM SAYING,
  • 00:08:43.060 --> 00:08:44.140
  • "WILL YOU TRUST ME?"
  • 00:08:44.140 --> 00:08:45.190
  • AAH! NOT REALLY.
  • 00:08:45.190 --> 00:08:47.080
  • "WILL YOU FOLLOW ME?"
  • 00:08:47.080 --> 00:08:48.100
  • ONLY TO THE POINT
  • 00:08:48.100 --> 00:08:49.160
  • THAT I CAN FIT YOU IN MY DAY.
  • 00:08:49.160 --> 00:08:51.150
  • I FELL IN LOVE
  • 00:08:51.150 --> 00:08:53.040
  • WITH THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN
  • 00:08:53.040 --> 00:08:54.140
  • I'D EVER MET IN MY LIFE
  • 00:08:54.140 --> 00:08:55.200
  • IN COLLEGE.
  • 00:08:55.200 --> 00:08:56.260
  • BACK IN MY DAY, WE WOULD HAVE
  • 00:08:56.260 --> 00:08:58.030
  • CALLED HER A BRICK HOUSE.

  • WHAT I'M SAYING TO YOU?
  • 00:09:00.190 --> 00:09:02.070
  • James: I UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:09:02.220 --> 00:09:05.220
  • Rick: EVENTUALLY,
  • 00:09:05.220 --> 00:09:07.000
  • I CONVINCED HER
  • 00:09:07.000 --> 00:09:08.020
  • TO FALL IN LOVE WITH ME
  • 00:09:08.020 --> 00:09:09.030
  • AS WELL.
  • 00:09:09.030 --> 00:09:10.080
  • WE GET MARRIED.
  • 00:09:10.080 --> 00:09:11.200
  • WE HAVE A COUPLE OF CHILDREN,

  • OUR RESPECTIVE CAREERS.
  • 00:09:15.220 --> 00:09:16.270
  • TRINA WAS A REGISTERED NURSE,
  • 00:09:16.270 --> 00:09:18.060
  • I WAS A TELEVISION REPORTER.
  • 00:09:18.060 --> 00:09:19.270
  • I GET BORN AGAIN.
  • 00:09:20.180 --> 00:09:23.180

  • AS THE YEARS GO BY,
  • 00:09:35.210 --> 00:09:37.010
  • THE ACCOLADES COME,
  • 00:09:37.010 --> 00:09:39.140
  • ALL OF THE SUDDEN

  • 00:09:43.250 --> 00:09:45.030
  • SIX YEARS AFTER THAT
  • 00:09:45.030 --> 00:09:46.090
  • DIAGNOSIS IN A LITTLE TOWN
  • 00:09:46.090 --> 00:09:47.180
  • CALLED COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS,
  • 00:09:47.180 --> 00:09:49.000
  • ME AND MY TWO LITTLE BOYS
  • 00:09:49.000 --> 00:09:50.100
  • WALKED UP TO MOMMY'S CASKET
  • 00:09:50.100 --> 00:09:51.250
  • AND MY LIFE AT AGE 41
  • 00:09:51.250 --> 00:09:54.150
  • WAS OVER.
  • 00:09:54.150 --> 00:09:56.090
  • I WENT
  • 00:09:56.090 --> 00:09:57.170
  • TO THAT THIRD GRADE DROPOUT
  • 00:09:57.170 --> 00:09:58.230
  • AND I SAID, "I HAVE NO HOPE."
  • 00:09:58.230 --> 00:10:00.010
  • HE GOES, "SON,
  • 00:10:00.010 --> 00:10:01.070
  • YOU CAN'T LOSE SOMETHING
  • 00:10:01.070 --> 00:10:02.140
  • GOD GAVE YOU.
  • 00:10:02.140 --> 00:10:03.190
  • YOU CAN'T LOSE SOMETHING
  • 00:10:03.190 --> 00:10:04.270
  • GOD GAVE YOU.
  • 00:10:04.270 --> 00:10:06.070
  • YOU'VE LOST PERSPECTIVE
  • 00:10:06.070 --> 00:10:07.170
  • BUT YOU HAVEN'T LOST HOPE."
  • 00:10:07.170 --> 00:10:10.000
  • IT WAS AT THAT CASKET
  • 00:10:10.000 --> 00:10:12.090
  • THAT MY LIFE
  • 00:10:12.090 --> 00:10:13.140
  • LITERALLY CHANGED.
  • 00:10:13.140 --> 00:10:15.110
  • MY FATHER,
  • 00:10:15.110 --> 00:10:16.200
  • I'D NEVER SEEN HIM CRY BEFORE,
  • 00:10:16.200 --> 00:10:18.010
  • STRONG TEXAN,
  • 00:10:18.010 --> 00:10:19.070
  • LIKE YOU, JAMES.
  • 00:10:19.070 --> 00:10:20.150
  • AND MY FATHER WAS CRYING.
  • 00:10:20.150 --> 00:10:21.210
  • TRINA WASN'T
  • 00:10:21.210 --> 00:10:22.290
  • HIS DAUGHTER-IN-LAW,
  • 00:10:22.290 --> 00:10:24.030
  • THAT WAS HIS DAUGHTER.
  • 00:10:24.030 --> 00:10:25.100
  • HE TURNED TO ME
  • 00:10:25.100 --> 00:10:26.140
  • AND HE WIPED HIS TEARS
  • 00:10:26.140 --> 00:10:27.160
  • AND HE PUT THEM BIG ARMS
  • 00:10:27.160 --> 00:10:28.190
  • AROUND ME
  • 00:10:28.190 --> 00:10:29.240
  • AND HE SAID THREE WORDS.
  • 00:10:29.240 --> 00:10:30.290
  • HE SAID, "SON, JUST STAND.
  • 00:10:30.290 --> 00:10:32.110
  • DON'T QUIT."
  • 00:10:32.110 --> 00:10:34.000
  • IF HE WAS ON THIS SHOW TODAY
  • 00:10:34.000 --> 00:10:35.070
  • HE'D BE SAYING,
  • 00:10:35.070 --> 00:10:36.130
  • "JAMES AND BETTY, YOU GO!
  • 00:10:36.130 --> 00:10:37.150
  • YOU DON'T QUIT.
  • 00:10:37.150 --> 00:10:38.190
  • AND YOU GET AN ARMY
  • 00:10:38.190 --> 00:10:39.250
  • OF VOLUNTEERS AROUND YOU
  • 00:10:39.250 --> 00:10:41.120
  • AND LET'S DEAL
  • 00:10:41.120 --> 00:10:42.200
  • WITH THIS REAL ISSUE
  • 00:10:42.200 --> 00:10:43.200
  • THAT'S IN GOD'S HEART
  • 00:10:43.200 --> 00:10:44.200
  • TO RECONCILE
  • 00:10:44.200 --> 00:10:45.250
  • FAMILIES TOGETHER."
  • 00:10:45.250 --> 00:10:47.060
  • AND HE TOLD ME THAT.
  • 00:10:47.060 --> 00:10:48.120
  • BUT WHAT I'VE NEVER
  • 00:10:48.120 --> 00:10:49.200
  • SAID PUBLICLY
  • 00:10:49.200 --> 00:10:50.250
  • IS WHAT ELSE HAPPENED.
  • 00:10:50.250 --> 00:10:52.000
  • AT THE CASKET --
  • 00:10:52.000 --> 00:10:53.130
  • AT THE CASKET
  • 00:10:53.130 --> 00:10:55.000
  • JESUS DIDN'T SAY TO ME,
  • 00:10:55.000 --> 00:10:56.060
  • I COULD HEAR HIS VOICE.
  • 00:10:56.060 --> 00:10:57.170
  • HE DIDN'T SAY TO ME,
  • 00:10:57.170 --> 00:10:58.200
  • I'M GOING TO FIX IT.
  • 00:10:58.200 --> 00:11:00.100
  • HE DIDN'T SAY TO ME,
  • 00:11:00.100 --> 00:11:01.180
  • I'M GOING TO ANSWER
  • 00:11:01.180 --> 00:11:02.240
  • YOUR PRAYERS THE WAY
  • 00:11:02.240 --> 00:11:04.000
  • YOU WANT THEM ANSWERED.
  • 00:11:04.000 --> 00:11:05.070
  • HE DIDN'T SAY TO ME,
  • 00:11:05.070 --> 00:11:06.140
  • I'M GOING TO RAISE HER UP.
  • 00:11:06.140 --> 00:11:07.240
  • "DO YOU TRUST ME?"
  • 00:11:09.080 --> 00:11:10.160
  • I REMEMBER SAYING,
  • 00:11:10.160 --> 00:11:11.250
  • "I'M NOT REAL HAPPY WITH YOU
  • 00:11:11.250 --> 00:11:13.030
  • BUT I TRUST YOU."
  • 00:11:13.030 --> 00:11:14.110
  • IN FACT,
  • 00:11:14.110 --> 00:11:15.180
  • I'M DOING THIS WITH ONE HAND
  • 00:11:16.260 --> 00:11:18.100
  • AND I'M HOLDING ON
  • 00:11:18.100 --> 00:11:19.170
  • WITH EVERYTHING I'VE GOT
  • 00:11:19.170 --> 00:11:20.260
  • IN THIS HAND.
  • 00:11:20.260 --> 00:11:22.000
  • I GET IT, FOLKS.
  • 00:11:22.000 --> 00:11:23.100
  • I HEARD JESUS SAY,
  • 00:11:23.100 --> 00:11:25.070
  • "IF YOU'LL TRUST ME
  • 00:11:25.070 --> 00:11:26.180
  • WITH YOUR PAIN
  • 00:11:26.180 --> 00:11:27.280
  • I WILL USE IT
  • 00:11:27.280 --> 00:11:29.190
  • TO DISPLAY MY GLORY
  • 00:11:29.190 --> 00:11:31.080
  • ALL OVER THE WORLD."
  • 00:11:31.080 --> 00:11:32.260
  • AND I'M WATCHING THE LORD
  • 00:11:36.070 --> 00:11:37.210
  • DO THE IMPOSSIBLE.
  • 00:11:37.210 --> 00:11:39.130
  • I WANT TO TELL YOU
  • 00:11:39.130 --> 00:11:40.230
  • AT A CASKET,
  • 00:11:43.160 --> 00:11:45.260
  • THE PRESENCE OF A DAD
  • 00:11:45.260 --> 00:11:48.000
  • AT A CASKET
  • 00:11:48.000 --> 00:11:49.160
  • IS ONLY SECOND TO THE PRESENCE
  • 00:11:49.160 --> 00:11:52.020
  • OF THE FATHER AT THE CASKET
  • 00:11:52.020 --> 00:11:54.190
  • SAYING, "TRUST ME!"
  • 00:11:54.190 --> 00:11:56.280
  • FRIEND, YOU MAY FEEL STUCK
  • 00:11:56.280 --> 00:11:58.180
  • RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:11:58.180 --> 00:12:00.030
  • YOU MAY FEEL NO HOPE,
  • 00:12:00.030 --> 00:12:01.150
  • NO REASON FOR WHICH TO HOPE
  • 00:12:01.150 --> 00:12:02.240
  • BUT I WANT TO ASK YOU
  • 00:12:02.240 --> 00:12:04.080
  • A QUESTION.
  • 00:12:04.080 --> 00:12:05.210
  • DO YOU TRUST HIM?
  • 00:12:05.210 --> 00:12:06.290
  • YOU STILL CAN TRUST HIM
  • 00:12:06.290 --> 00:12:08.090
  • REGARDLESS OF HOW YOU FEEL.
  • 00:12:08.090 --> 00:12:09.180
  • TAKE IT FROM A MAN
  • 00:12:09.180 --> 00:12:11.120
  • WHO STOOD AT THE EDGE
  • 00:12:11.120 --> 00:12:13.230
  • OF HIS WIFE'S GRAVE
  • 00:12:13.230 --> 00:12:15.000
  • CLUTCHING THE HANDS
  • 00:12:15.000 --> 00:12:16.130
  • OF TWO LITTLE BOYS.
  • 00:12:16.130 --> 00:12:17.260
  • YOU CAN TRUST HIM.
  • 00:12:17.260 --> 00:12:19.160
  • HIS WORD IS TRUE REGARDLESS
  • 00:12:19.160 --> 00:12:22.150
  • OF WHETHER HE ANSWERS
  • 00:12:22.150 --> 00:12:23.260
  • YOUR PRAYERS OR NOT.
  • 00:12:23.260 --> 00:12:25.020
  • I'M HERE TO TELL YOU,
  • 00:12:25.020 --> 00:12:26.090
  • YOU CAN TRUST GOD.
  • 00:12:26.090 --> 00:12:27.200
  • SO IT BECOMES IMPERATIVE
  • 00:12:27.200 --> 00:12:30.070
  • THAT WE START BUILDING UP MEN
  • 00:12:31.030 --> 00:12:34.030
  • THAT THEY MAY POINT
  • 00:12:34.030 --> 00:12:35.170
  • TO GOD ALMIGHTY.
  • 00:12:35.170 --> 00:12:38.140
  • IT IS NOT JUST
  • 00:12:38.140 --> 00:12:39.260
  • A JAMES INITIATIVE,
  • 00:12:39.260 --> 00:12:41.070
  • IT IS NOT JUST
  • 00:12:41.070 --> 00:12:42.150
  • A BETTY MANDATE.
  • 00:12:42.150 --> 00:12:43.280
  • THINK ABOUT THAT SCRIPTURE
  • 00:12:43.280 --> 00:12:45.070
  • A FEW MINUTES AGO.
  • 00:12:46.160 --> 00:12:47.220
  • WE ARE CHARGED
  • 00:12:47.220 --> 00:12:49.020
  • BY ALMIGHTY GOD
  • 00:12:49.020 --> 00:12:50.140
  • TO LOVE HIM WITH ALL OUR HEART
  • 00:12:50.140 --> 00:12:51.230
  • AND THEN TO MODEL IT
  • 00:12:51.230 --> 00:12:53.010
  • AND THEN TO TEACH IT.
  • 00:12:53.010 --> 00:12:55.030
  • James: HE WANTS SO MUCH
  • 00:12:55.030 --> 00:12:57.280
  • TO HOLD OUR BROKEN HEART.
  • 00:12:58.030 --> 00:13:01.050
  • THERE THAT HELD YOUR HAND
  • 00:13:03.060 --> 00:13:05.000
  • WHEN YOUR HEART WAS BROKEN,
  • 00:13:05.000 --> 00:13:07.000
  • AS A MANIFESTATION
  • 00:13:07.000 --> 00:13:08.140
  • OF THE LOVE OF GOD,
  • 00:13:08.140 --> 00:13:10.020
  • THAT IS WHAT YOU
  • 00:13:10.020 --> 00:13:11.110
  • AS VIEWERS OF LIFE TODAY
  • 00:13:11.110 --> 00:13:12.180
  • HAVE DONE SO EFFECTIVELY.
  • 00:13:12.180 --> 00:13:14.180
  • YOU HAVE LITERALLY HELPED US
  • 00:13:14.180 --> 00:13:16.060
  • PUT LOVING ARMS AROUND
  • 00:13:16.060 --> 00:13:17.140
  • THE MOST OVERLOOKED PEOPLE
  • 00:13:17.140 --> 00:13:18.210
  • ON THE PLANET.
  • 00:13:18.210 --> 00:13:20.000
  • I WANT YOU TO KNOW RIGHT NOW
  • 00:13:20.000 --> 00:13:22.130
  • GOD WANTS TO GET YOU
  • 00:13:22.130 --> 00:13:23.200
  • IN HIS ARMS.
  • 00:13:23.200 --> 00:13:24.220
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON
  • 00:13:24.220 --> 00:13:25.250
  • IN YOUR LIFE BUT WHILE
  • 00:13:25.250 --> 00:13:26.280
  • YOU WERE TALKING, RICK,
  • 00:13:26.280 --> 00:13:28.030
  • I KNOW THERE ARE
  • 00:13:28.030 --> 00:13:29.060
  • A LOT OF FOLKS
  • 00:13:29.060 --> 00:13:30.110
  • WHO HAVE SAID GOOD-BYE.
  • 00:13:30.110 --> 00:13:31.150
  • YOU KNOW, THOSE OF YOU
  • 00:13:31.150 --> 00:13:32.220
  • WHO PRAYED WITH US
  • 00:13:32.220 --> 00:13:33.260
  • AND WATCHED AS OVER THE YEARS
  • 00:13:33.260 --> 00:13:35.020
  • OUR DAUGHTER FOUGHT
  • 00:13:35.020 --> 00:13:36.080
  • FOR HER LIFE,
  • 00:13:36.080 --> 00:13:37.170
  • AND THEN WE SAID
  • 00:13:37.170 --> 00:13:38.240
  • THAT GOOD-BYE,
  • 00:13:38.240 --> 00:13:40.010
  • YOU PUT YOUR ARMS OF LOVE
  • 00:13:40.010 --> 00:13:41.230
  • AROUND US IN PRAYER
  • 00:13:41.230 --> 00:13:43.030
  • AND IT MEANT SO MUCH TO US.
  • 00:13:43.030 --> 00:13:45.030
  • WE WANT TO
  • 00:13:47.140 --> 00:13:48.230
  • NOT ONLY PRAY FOR YOU,
  • 00:13:48.230 --> 00:13:49.280
  • WE WANT YOU TO ALLOW GOD
  • 00:13:49.280 --> 00:13:51.290
  • TO HOLD YOU SO CLOSE
  • 00:13:51.290 --> 00:13:53.050
  • TO HIS HEART
  • 00:13:53.050 --> 00:13:54.100
  • THAT YOU CAN FEEL HIS LOVE.
  • 00:13:54.100 --> 00:13:55.190
  • AS HE IS HOLDING YOU,
  • 00:13:55.190 --> 00:13:57.240
  • PLEASE TRY TO HEAR
  • 00:13:57.240 --> 00:13:59.070

  • THAT'S EVER EXPERIENCED
  • 00:14:02.240 --> 00:14:03.280
  • HIS GRACE IN THAT TIME
  • 00:14:03.280 --> 00:14:05.030
  • OF INDESCRIBABLE GRIEF
  • 00:14:05.030 --> 00:14:06.270

  • THAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY
  • 00:14:12.270 --> 00:14:14.040
  • HELP PUT HIS ARMS
  • 00:14:14.040 --> 00:14:15.270
  • AROUND BROKEN HEARTS
