  • - YOUR FAITH DOESN'T MANEUVER LIFE
  • 00:00:06.250 --> 00:00:09.190
  • AND MAKE EVERYTHING PERFECT.
  • 00:00:09.220 --> 00:00:11.190
  • IT IS NOT LIKE FAITH PREVENTS LIFE.
  • 00:00:11.220 --> 00:00:14.050
  • FAITH CARRIES US THROUGH LIFE.
  • 00:00:14.080 --> 00:00:16.090
  • NEXT! PAULA WHITE-CAIN SHARES HER JOURNEY OF FAITH
  • 00:00:16.120 --> 00:00:19.050
  • THROUGH ACCOUNTS OF HEARTBREAK AND TRIUMPH.
  • 00:00:19.080 --> 00:00:21.230
  • - PEOPLE ARE LIKE, WHY DO YOU TELL THIS STUFF?
  • 00:00:21.260 --> 00:00:23.230
  • DON'T TELL IT. DON'T SAY IT.
  • 00:00:23.260 --> 00:00:25.230
  • YOU CAN LOVE GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART
  • 00:00:25.260 --> 00:00:28.090
  • AND HAVE SOME VERY DARK, DEEP PLACES IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:00:28.120 --> 00:00:32.000
  • SOMETHING GREATER!
  • 00:00:32.030 --> 00:00:34.000
  • NEXT ON LIFE TODAY!
  • 00:00:34.030 --> 00:00:36.030
  • 00:00:43.200 --> 00:00:51.070
  • James: THANK ALL OF YOU.

  • WELCOME TO LIFE TODAY !
  • 00:01:01.110 --> 00:01:02.160
  • I'M JAMES ROBISON.
  • 00:01:02.160 --> 00:01:03.250
  • BETTY AND I ARE THRILLED
  • 00:01:03.250 --> 00:01:05.010
  • TO HAVE YOU.
  • 00:01:05.010 --> 00:01:06.060
  • HERE I AM A BAPTIST EVANGELIST
  • 00:01:07.130 --> 00:01:10.130
  • AND ONE OF JERRY FALWELL'S
  • 00:01:10.130 --> 00:01:12.140
  • BEST FRIENDS,
  • 00:01:12.140 --> 00:01:13.170
  • ONE OF THESE
  • 00:01:13.170 --> 00:01:14.210
  • BIBLE BAPTIST GUYS.
  • 00:01:14.210 --> 00:01:16.130
  • AND I'M SITTING HERE
  • 00:01:16.130 --> 00:01:17.220
  • LOOKING AT A WOMAN
  • 00:01:17.220 --> 00:01:19.220
  • WHO IS A WOMAN PREACHER,
  • 00:01:20.030 --> 00:01:23.030
  • AND I'M A BAPTIST.
  • 00:01:23.030 --> 00:01:24.260
  • I'VE GOT THIS WOMAN PREACHER
  • 00:01:24.260 --> 00:01:27.190
  • THAT'S GOING TO COME AND TALK.
  • 00:01:27.220 --> 00:01:30.220
  • HER NAME IS PAULA WHITE.
  • 00:01:30.220 --> 00:01:33.200
  • SHE COMES IN, BETTY,
  • 00:01:33.200 --> 00:01:36.080
  • I CAN REMEMBER IT
  • 00:01:36.080 --> 00:01:37.190
  • AS THOUGH IT WERE LAST WEEK.
  • 00:01:37.190 --> 00:01:40.060
  • SHE TEACHES ON ESTHER; IT IS
  • 00:01:40.060 --> 00:01:41.180
  • ONE OF THE BEST BIBLE LESSONS
  • 00:01:41.180 --> 00:01:43.120
  • I'VE EVER HEARD IN MY LIFE --
  • 00:01:43.120 --> 00:01:45.110
  • INCREDIBLE COMMUNICATOR.
  • 00:01:45.110 --> 00:01:47.080
  • BUT MORE THAN THAT,
  • 00:01:47.080 --> 00:01:48.170
  • SHE WAS FULL
  • 00:01:48.170 --> 00:01:49.270
  • OF THE WORD OF GOD.
  • 00:01:49.270 --> 00:01:51.060
  • SHE TALKED ABOUT BEING MADE
  • 00:01:51.060 --> 00:01:54.060
  • FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS.
  • 00:01:54.060 --> 00:01:55.230
  • AND PEOPLE HAD BEEN
  • 00:01:55.230 --> 00:01:57.000
  • TELLING ME THAT,
  • 00:01:57.000 --> 00:01:58.070
  • BILLY GRAHAM HAD SAID THAT,
  • 00:01:58.070 --> 00:01:59.140
  • PEOPLE HAVE SAID
  • 00:01:59.140 --> 00:02:00.270
  • NICE THINGS ABOUT ME.
  • 00:02:00.270 --> 00:02:02.040
  • I'M SURE THEY'VE PROBABLY
  • 00:02:02.040 --> 00:02:03.140
  • SAID NICE THINGS
  • 00:02:03.140 --> 00:02:04.170
  • ABOUT OTHERS YOU KNOW
  • 00:02:04.170 --> 00:02:06.020
  • AND ABOUT HER PROBABLY,
  • 00:02:06.020 --> 00:02:07.130
  • BUT I REMEMBER WHEN SHE LEFT
  • 00:02:07.130 --> 00:02:08.200
  • I HEARD A VERY GIFTED PERSON
  • 00:02:08.200 --> 00:02:09.290
  • BUT I KNEW THERE WAS
  • 00:02:09.290 --> 00:02:11.070
  • REALLY TURMOIL AND SOMETHING
  • 00:02:11.070 --> 00:02:12.140
  • AND I IMMEDIATELY REACHED OUT
  • 00:02:13.200 --> 00:02:15.010
  • TO SHE AND TO HER HUSBAND.
  • 00:02:15.010 --> 00:02:16.120
  • SAID, "SURE WOULD LOVE
  • 00:02:16.120 --> 00:02:17.220
  • TO SPEND SOME TIME,
  • 00:02:17.220 --> 00:02:18.290
  • GOD'S ARMS AROUND YOU."
  • 00:02:20.110 --> 00:02:21.170
  • DIDN'T SAY IT IN THOSE WORDS
  • 00:02:21.170 --> 00:02:22.240
  • BUT BETTY AND I WANT
  • 00:02:22.240 --> 00:02:24.030
  • TO SPEND TIME WITH YOU.
  • 00:02:24.030 --> 00:02:25.150
  • DIDN'T GET TO.
  • 00:02:25.150 --> 00:02:26.220
  • AND HER LIFE
  • 00:02:26.220 --> 00:02:27.280
  • TOOK QUITE A JOURNEY.
  • 00:02:27.280 --> 00:02:29.030
  • I MEAN REALLY QUITE A JOURNEY.
  • 00:02:29.030 --> 00:02:30.090
  • AND SEE,
  • 00:02:30.090 --> 00:02:31.150
  • WHEN YOU REALLY LOVE PEOPLE
  • 00:02:31.150 --> 00:02:32.190
  • AND SEE, BETTY AND I DO,
  • 00:02:32.190 --> 00:02:33.240
  • WE REALLY LOVE PEOPLE.
  • 00:02:33.240 --> 00:02:34.270
  • WE DON'T JUST HAVE GUESTS.
  • 00:02:34.270 --> 00:02:36.010
  • WE LOVE EVERYBODY
  • 00:02:36.010 --> 00:02:37.060
  • IN THIS STUDIO HERE.
  • 00:02:37.060 --> 00:02:38.090
  • AND ALL OF YOU.
  • 00:02:38.090 --> 00:02:39.120
  • YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE THAT
  • 00:02:39.120 --> 00:02:40.160
  • IF WE WERE SITTING IN HOME,
  • 00:02:40.160 --> 00:02:41.190
  • YOU'D KNOW WE LOVED YOU,
  • 00:02:41.190 --> 00:02:42.200
  • WANT TO GET GOD'S ARMS
  • 00:02:42.200 --> 00:02:43.230
  • AROUND YOU.
  • 00:02:43.230 --> 00:02:44.240
  • REALLY LOVE YOU.
  • 00:02:44.240 --> 00:02:45.260
  • I MEAN THAT.
  • 00:02:45.260 --> 00:02:46.270
  • YOU MAY SAY, WELL, IT'S UGLY.
  • 00:02:46.270 --> 00:02:47.280
  • IT'S ALL RIGHT.
  • 00:02:47.280 --> 00:02:49.000
  • HE'S WONDERFUL.
  • 00:02:49.000 --> 00:02:50.010
  • BUT I JUST PRAYED FOR HER.
  • 00:02:50.010 --> 00:02:51.040
  • AND HERE SHE IS
  • 00:02:51.040 --> 00:02:52.080
  • WITH A NEW BOOK CALLED,
  • 00:02:52.080 --> 00:02:54.190
  • SOMETHING GREATER .
  • 00:02:54.190 --> 00:02:55.240
  • SHE SAID IT TOOK
  • 00:02:55.240 --> 00:02:56.270
  • NINE YEARS TO WRITE IT
  • 00:02:56.270 --> 00:02:58.010
  • BECAUSE IT REALLY
  • 00:02:58.010 --> 00:02:59.020
  • IN MANY WAYS TOOK HER
  • 00:02:59.020 --> 00:03:00.050
  • A LIFETIME TO WRITE IT.
  • 00:03:00.050 --> 00:03:01.100
  • BUT IT'S
  • 00:03:01.100 --> 00:03:02.170
  • AN INCREDIBLE PORTRAIT
  • 00:03:02.170 --> 00:03:03.230
  • OF THE GRACE AND GLORY OF GOD.
  • 00:03:03.230 --> 00:03:06.210
  • AND PAULA IS BACK.
  • 00:03:06.210 --> 00:03:08.050
  • YOU TALK ABOUT BEING CREATED
  • 00:03:08.050 --> 00:03:09.140
  • FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS,
  • 00:03:09.140 --> 00:03:11.290
  • PAULA, YOU HAVE NO IDEA
  • 00:03:11.290 --> 00:03:13.060

  • LOVE YOU.
  • 00:03:20.050 --> 00:03:21.100
  • I KNOW THERE ARE PEOPLE
  • 00:03:21.100 --> 00:03:22.140
  • THAT SAY BAD THINGS
  • 00:03:22.140 --> 00:03:23.190
  • ABOUT ALL OF US, I'M SURE.
  • 00:03:23.190 --> 00:03:24.230
  • THEY DON'T EVEN
  • 00:03:24.230 --> 00:03:25.260
  • UNDERSTAND WHY
  • 00:03:25.260 --> 00:03:26.290
  • YOU AND I WOULD CARE ENOUGH
  • 00:03:26.290 --> 00:03:28.000
  • ABOUT THE WHOLE NATION
  • 00:03:28.000 --> 00:03:29.030
  • AND EVERYBODY'S FAMILY
  • 00:03:29.030 --> 00:03:30.050
  • AND THEIR GRANDKIDS
  • 00:03:30.050 --> 00:03:31.060
  • AND GREAT GRANDCHILDREN.
  • 00:03:31.060 --> 00:03:32.060
  • WE JUST WANT THE BEST.
  • 00:03:32.060 --> 00:03:33.060
  • WE WANT GOD'S BEST
  • 00:03:33.060 --> 00:03:34.070
  • FOR ALL OF YOU --

  • THE WHOLE WORLD.
  • 00:03:35.100 --> 00:03:36.130
  • THAT'S WHAT WE WANT.
  • 00:03:36.130 --> 00:03:37.190
  • AND PAULA AND I TOGETHER

  • HAVE DECIDED,
  • 00:03:38.240 --> 00:03:40.000
  • ALONG WITH OTHER PEOPLE

  • WHO JUST LOVE GOD
  • 00:03:41.040 --> 00:03:42.100
  • AND LOVE THEIR NEIGHBOR,
  • 00:03:42.100 --> 00:03:43.130
  • WE TRIED TO SAY LET'S TALK
  • 00:03:43.130 --> 00:03:44.170
  • TO OUR NATION
  • 00:03:44.170 --> 00:03:45.240
  • AND OUR NATION'S LEADERS
  • 00:03:45.240 --> 00:03:46.250
  • AND LET'S OFFER THEM

  • IF THEY'LL TAKE IT.
  • 00:03:48.270 --> 00:03:49.280
  • AND FOR SOME REASON
  • 00:03:49.280 --> 00:03:50.290
  • GOD OPENED THE DOOR FOR YOU.
  • 00:03:50.290 --> 00:03:52.030

  • A MIRACLE OF A HUSBAND
  • 00:03:59.120 --> 00:04:01.030
  • IN JONATHAN CAIN
  • 00:04:01.030 --> 00:04:02.080
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO MEET HIM
  • 00:04:02.080 --> 00:04:03.140
  • IN THE NEXT SHOW
  • 00:04:03.140 --> 00:04:04.190
  • WITH US TOGETHER,
  • 00:04:04.190 --> 00:04:05.230
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO
  • 00:04:05.230 --> 00:04:06.240
  • LET EVERYBODY GET TO KNOW HIM
  • 00:04:06.240 --> 00:04:08.020
  • IN A DIFFERENT WAY,
  • 00:04:08.020 --> 00:04:09.030
  • BUT WOULDN'T YOU SAY
  • 00:04:09.030 --> 00:04:10.040
  • THAT WE ARE WATCHING GOD
  • 00:04:10.040 --> 00:04:11.050
  • MORE CLEARLY
  • 00:04:11.050 --> 00:04:12.060
  • THAN WE EVER EVEN IMAGINED
  • 00:04:12.060 --> 00:04:13.070
  • AND THE WHOLE NATION
  • 00:04:13.070 --> 00:04:14.080
  • CAN SEE HIM THAT WAY
  • 00:04:14.080 --> 00:04:15.090
  • AN OPPORTUNITY?
  • 00:04:16.110 --> 00:04:17.110
  • Paula: BEYOND ANYTHING,
  • 00:04:17.110 --> 00:04:18.120
  • JAMES.
  • 00:04:18.120 --> 00:04:19.130
  • I'VE GOT TO SAY SO MUCH
  • 00:04:19.130 --> 00:04:20.160
  • ABOUT YOU AND BETTY.
  • 00:04:20.160 --> 00:04:21.170
  • YOU'RE SUCH A GENERAL
  • 00:04:21.170 --> 00:04:22.190
  • AND SO ARE YOU MISS BETTY,
  • 00:04:23.210 --> 00:04:24.250
  • SUCH A MATRIARCH.
  • 00:04:24.250 --> 00:04:26.020
  • AND I GO BACK
  • 00:04:26.020 --> 00:04:27.050
  • TO WHEN I WAS ON HERE,
  • 00:04:27.050 --> 00:04:28.110
  • AND YOU AND BETTY WERE
  • 00:04:28.110 --> 00:04:29.120
  • ONE OF THE FEW PEOPLE.
  • 00:04:29.120 --> 00:04:30.160
  • YOU KNOW EVERYONE KIND OF,
  • 00:04:30.160 --> 00:04:31.200
  • I'D BECOME A COMMODITY.
  • 00:04:31.290 --> 00:04:34.290
  • AND SO EVERYONE JUST
  • 00:04:34.290 --> 00:04:36.290
  • KEEP THE IMAGE,
  • 00:04:36.290 --> 00:04:38.000
  • KEEP THINGS RIGHT, KEEP THIS.
  • 00:04:38.000 --> 00:04:39.140
  • BUT YOU DIDN'T CARE
  • 00:04:39.140 --> 00:04:40.280
  • ABOUT THE IMAGE,
  • 00:04:40.280 --> 00:04:42.020
  • YOU CARED ABOUT ME.
  • 00:04:42.020 --> 00:04:43.080
  • YOU CARED ABOUT...
  • 00:04:43.080 --> 00:04:44.180
  • YOU SAW THE HURT AND THE PAIN.
  • 00:04:44.180 --> 00:04:46.070
  • I THOUGHT
  • 00:04:46.070 --> 00:04:47.120
  • I WAS HIDING IT WELL.
  • 00:04:47.120 --> 00:04:48.150
  • BUT YOU SAW
  • 00:04:48.150 --> 00:04:49.180
  • BY THE EYES OF THE SPIRIT
  • 00:04:49.180 --> 00:04:50.280
  • WHAT SOME PEOPLE WOULD CALL
  • 00:04:50.280 --> 00:04:52.220
  • THE MOST SUCCESSFUL,
  • 00:04:52.220 --> 00:04:54.200
  • WHICH I DON'T BELIEVE THAT,
  • 00:04:54.200 --> 00:04:56.000
  • I THINK THAT TIME OF MY LIFE
  • 00:04:57.020 --> 00:05:00.040
  • WAS THE MOST DIFFICULT.
  • 00:05:00.040 --> 00:05:02.070
  • I ONE TIME COUNTED UP
  • 00:05:02.070 --> 00:05:04.130
  • AND THERE WERE 39
  • 00:05:04.130 --> 00:05:05.220
  • DIFFERENT LIFE EVENTS,
  • 00:05:05.220 --> 00:05:07.190
  • 19 DIFFERENT CRISES
  • 00:05:07.190 --> 00:05:09.270
  • WHERE EVERYTHING
  • 00:05:09.270 --> 00:05:11.060
  • THAT COULD BE SHAKEN
  • 00:05:11.060 --> 00:05:12.130
  • WOULD BE SHAKEN IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:05:12.150 --> 00:05:15.150
  • I WRITE ABOUT IT.
  • 00:05:15.150 --> 00:05:16.200
  • THIS WAS THE HARDEST BOOK
  • 00:05:16.200 --> 00:05:18.050
  • I'VE EVER DONE.
  • 00:05:18.050 --> 00:05:19.140
  • I CAN WRITE A TOPIC BOOK
  • 00:05:19.140 --> 00:05:20.210
  • ALL DAY LONG
  • 00:05:20.210 --> 00:05:21.270
  • AND THIS WAS THE MOST
  • 00:05:21.270 --> 00:05:23.070
  • DIFFICULT THING I'D DONE
  • 00:05:23.070 --> 00:05:24.150
  • BECAUSE IT WAS MY LIFE'S STORY
  • 00:05:24.250 --> 00:05:27.250
  • AND FIRST THING IS LIKE, WHY?
  • 00:05:27.250 --> 00:05:30.110
  • GOD JUST KEPT PUTTING
  • 00:05:30.110 --> 00:05:31.230
  • A DEMAND ON ME.
  • 00:05:31.230 --> 00:05:32.290
  • IT WAS THE MOST DIFFICULT
  • 00:05:32.290 --> 00:05:34.050
  • BUT THE MOST REWARDING
  • 00:05:34.050 --> 00:05:35.120
  • BECAUSE I HAD TO DISROBE
  • 00:05:35.120 --> 00:05:37.150
  • IN FRONT OF EVERYONE
  • 00:05:37.150 --> 00:05:39.070
  • AND BE VERY, VERY VULNERABLE.
  • 00:05:39.280 --> 00:05:42.280
  • SO MUCH SO THAT WRITING IT,
  • 00:05:42.280 --> 00:05:45.140
  • IT WAS NINE YEARS
  • 00:05:45.140 --> 00:05:46.220
  • IN THE MAKING
  • 00:05:46.220 --> 00:05:47.280
  • BUT IT LITERALLY TOOK ME
  • 00:05:47.280 --> 00:05:49.080
  • OVER TWO YEARS BECAUSE
  • 00:05:49.080 --> 00:05:50.170
  • I HAD TO JUST STOP AND CRY.
  • 00:05:50.170 --> 00:05:51.260
  • AND THEN I WOULD STOP --
  • 00:05:51.260 --> 00:05:53.040
  • BUT IT WASN'T TEARS OF SADNESS
  • 00:05:53.040 --> 00:05:54.110
  • AS MUCH AS TEARS OF JOY
  • 00:05:54.110 --> 00:05:56.250
  • THAT GOD IS SUCH A GREAT GOD
  • 00:05:57.060 --> 00:06:00.080
  • THAT I DON'T CARE
  • 00:06:00.080 --> 00:06:01.280
  • HOW DARK YOUR SEASON IS,
  • 00:06:01.280 --> 00:06:04.010
  • HOW DEMONIC, HOW DIFFICULT,
  • 00:06:04.010 --> 00:06:06.250
  • THAT IF YOU DON'T
  • 00:06:06.250 --> 00:06:08.190
  • LET GO OF GOD,
  • 00:06:08.190 --> 00:06:10.240
  • AND THAT WAS MY KEY
  • 00:06:10.240 --> 00:06:12.010
  • THAT I SAY,
  • 00:06:12.010 --> 00:06:13.040
  • I ALMOST SUBTITLED IT
  • 00:06:13.040 --> 00:06:14.080
  • INSTEAD OF
  • 00:06:14.080 --> 00:06:15.090
  • "TRIUMPHING OVER YOUR TRIALS,"
  • 00:06:15.090 --> 00:06:16.240
  • "STAYING FAITHFUL
  • 00:06:16.240 --> 00:06:18.000
  • TO YOUR YES."
  • 00:06:18.000 --> 00:06:19.140
  • BECAUSE GOD HAS A YES
  • 00:06:19.140 --> 00:06:20.210
  • FOR EVERY ONE OF US.
  • 00:06:20.210 --> 00:06:21.280
  • IT IS HIS DIVINE SENSE
  • 00:06:21.280 --> 00:06:23.090
  • OF PURPOSE THAT HE'S PUT
  • 00:06:23.090 --> 00:06:24.180
  • ON THE INSIDE OF US.
  • 00:06:24.180 --> 00:06:25.260
  • IT IS ETERNITY IN OUR HEART.
  • 00:06:25.260 --> 00:06:27.030
  • AND GOD HAS,
  • 00:06:27.030 --> 00:06:29.040
  • HE HAS A PURPOSE,
  • 00:06:29.040 --> 00:06:30.090
  • A SUPREME REASON FOR BEING
  • 00:06:30.090 --> 00:06:31.130
  • FOR EVERY ONE OF US.
  • 00:06:31.130 --> 00:06:32.260
  • AND IT WASN'T WHAT I DID.
  • 00:06:32.260 --> 00:06:34.170
  • IT WASN'T BECAUSE
  • 00:06:34.170 --> 00:06:35.210
  • I COULD PREACH A SERMON.
  • 00:06:35.210 --> 00:06:36.260
  • IT WASN'T JUST BECAUSE
  • 00:06:36.260 --> 00:06:38.010
  • I PASTORED A CHURCH.
  • 00:06:38.030 --> 00:06:41.030
  • IT WAS I'M A CHILD OF GOD.
  • 00:06:41.030 --> 00:06:42.270
  • HE LOVED PAULA.
  • 00:06:42.270 --> 00:06:44.100
  • THAT'S ONE OF THE HARDEST
  • 00:06:44.100 --> 00:06:45.210
  • THINGS FOR ME TO COME TO
  • 00:06:45.210 --> 00:06:47.010
  • THAT I DIDN'T HAVE TO DO
  • 00:06:47.010 --> 00:06:48.250
  • FOR GOD TO LOVE ME LIKE THAT.
  • 00:06:49.220 --> 00:06:52.220
  • I WRITE THROUGH
  • 00:06:52.220 --> 00:06:54.100
  • THOSE DIFFICULT
  • 00:06:54.100 --> 00:06:55.190
  • PAINFUL MOMENTS.
  • 00:06:55.190 --> 00:06:57.030
  • MOST PEOPLE FOCUSED
  • 00:06:57.030 --> 00:06:58.100
  • ON THE MARRIAGE
  • 00:06:58.100 --> 00:06:59.170
  • THAT FELL APART.
  • 00:06:59.170 --> 00:07:01.130
  • I BELIEVE SO MUCH
  • 00:07:01.130 --> 00:07:02.260
  • IN THE SACREDNESS
  • 00:07:02.260 --> 00:07:04.070
  • AND THE DIVINE INSTITUTION
  • 00:07:04.070 --> 00:07:05.220
  • OF MARRIAGE,
  • 00:07:05.220 --> 00:07:07.050
  • AND IT WAS HARD FOR ME
  • 00:07:07.050 --> 00:07:08.230
  • TO COME TO MYSELF
  • 00:07:08.230 --> 00:07:10.080
  • TO RECOGNIZE THAT I WAS IN
  • 00:07:10.080 --> 00:07:11.190
  • A VERY ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:07:11.190 --> 00:07:14.070
  • IT WAS BIBLICALLY,
  • 00:07:14.070 --> 00:07:16.250
  • I'D BEEN RELEASED FROM.
  • 00:07:16.250 --> 00:07:18.270
  • MY EX-HUSBAND
  • 00:07:18.270 --> 00:07:20.080
  • HAD A COMPLETE BREAKDOWN.
  • 00:07:20.170 --> 00:07:23.170
  • AND TESTIMONY,
  • 00:07:25.000 --> 00:07:26.080
  • GOT ADDICTED TO DRUGS.
  • 00:07:26.080 --> 00:07:28.250
  • I KEPT BELIEVING GOD,
  • 00:07:31.250 --> 00:07:33.180
  • WE'RE GOING TO MAKE IT.
  • 00:07:33.180 --> 00:07:35.090
  • I CAN PRAY IT AWAY.
  • 00:07:35.090 --> 00:07:36.240
  • I CAN STAND IN FAITH.
  • 00:07:36.240 --> 00:07:38.040
  • IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN!
  • 00:07:38.040 --> 00:07:39.120
  • FOUND OUT
  • 00:07:39.120 --> 00:07:40.230
  • MY SON HAD BEEN ABUSED
  • 00:07:40.230 --> 00:07:42.030
  • BY SOMEONE IN THE CHURCH.
  • 00:07:42.030 --> 00:07:43.200
  • HE'S SITTING OUTSIDE ONE DAY
  • 00:07:43.200 --> 00:07:45.040
  • AND I WALK OUT
  • 00:07:45.040 --> 00:07:47.120
  • ON THE BACK PORCH,
  • 00:07:47.120 --> 00:07:48.240
  • RANDY AND I.
  • 00:07:48.240 --> 00:07:50.030
  • HIS HANDS ARE BLACK.
  • 00:07:50.030 --> 00:07:51.090
  • AND HE GOES,
  • 00:07:51.090 --> 00:07:52.140
  • "AS IF YOU HADN'T NOTICED,"
  • 00:07:52.140 --> 00:07:53.220
  • HE IS ABOUT 17
  • 00:07:53.220 --> 00:07:55.010
  • AT THIS TIME, HE GOES,
  • 00:07:55.010 --> 00:07:56.140
  • "I'M ADDICTED TO CRACK."
  • 00:07:56.140 --> 00:07:57.220
  • SKINNY LITTLE KID
  • 00:07:57.220 --> 00:07:58.270
  • AND ATHEIST.
  • 00:07:58.270 --> 00:08:00.270
  • I HELPED RAISE
  • 00:08:00.270 --> 00:08:02.130
  • RANDY'S THREE CHILDREN
  • 00:08:02.130 --> 00:08:03.220
  • FROM THE TIME THEY WERE TWO,
  • 00:08:03.220 --> 00:08:05.030
  • FIVE, AND SEVEN.
  • 00:08:05.030 --> 00:08:06.160
  • OUR OLDEST DAUGHTER
  • 00:08:06.160 --> 00:08:07.210
  • GOT CANCER.
  • 00:08:07.210 --> 00:08:09.030
  • I'M BELIEVING GOD
  • 00:08:09.030 --> 00:08:10.110
  • AND SEEING GOD DO MIRACLES
  • 00:08:10.110 --> 00:08:11.200
  • IN OTHER PEOPLE'S LIVES
  • 00:08:11.200 --> 00:08:12.270
  • AND SHE IS DYING OF CANCER.
  • 00:08:12.270 --> 00:08:14.130
  • RANDY WOULD HAVE
  • 00:08:14.130 --> 00:08:15.220
  • A COMPLETE BREAKDOWN.
  • 00:08:15.220 --> 00:08:16.290
  • WE'D GO UNDER INVESTIGATION.
  • 00:08:17.200 --> 00:08:20.200
  • I'D BE IN THE HEADLINES
  • 00:08:20.200 --> 00:08:22.040
  • 52 WEEKS IN A ROW.
  • 00:08:22.040 --> 00:08:23.150
  • PEOPLE ARE LIKE,
  • 00:08:23.150 --> 00:08:24.260
  • "WHY DO YOU TELL THIS STUFF?
  • 00:08:24.260 --> 00:08:26.020
  • DON'T TELL IT!
  • 00:08:26.020 --> 00:08:27.140
  • DON'T SAY IT!"
  • 00:08:27.140 --> 00:08:28.280
  • BUT YOU KNOW,
  • 00:08:28.280 --> 00:08:30.070
  • YOU CAN LOVE GOD
  • 00:08:30.070 --> 00:08:31.140
  • WITH ALL YOUR HEART
  • 00:08:31.140 --> 00:08:32.240
  • AND HAVE SOME VERY DARK,
  • 00:08:32.240 --> 00:08:34.120
  • DEEP PLACES IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:08:34.120 --> 00:08:36.060
  • I LAID IN DEPRESSION
  • 00:08:36.060 --> 00:08:38.000
  • FOR THREE MONTHS.
  • 00:08:38.000 --> 00:08:39.080
  • COULDN'T GET UP
  • 00:08:39.080 --> 00:08:40.120
  • OFF THE GROUND;
  • 00:08:40.120 --> 00:08:41.180
  • LOST 30 POUNDS,
  • 00:08:41.180 --> 00:08:42.250
  • WEIGHED 97 POUNDS.
  • 00:08:42.250 --> 00:08:45.060
  • WANTED TO GET UP,
  • 00:08:45.060 --> 00:08:46.110
  • COULDN'T GET UP.
  • 00:08:46.110 --> 00:08:47.180
  • WANTED TO FEEL HOPE,
  • 00:08:47.180 --> 00:08:48.290
  • DIDN'T SEE ANY HOPE.
  • 00:08:48.290 --> 00:08:51.100
  • BUT THAT WASN'T
  • 00:08:51.100 --> 00:08:52.180
  • THE END OF THE STORY.
  • 00:08:52.180 --> 00:08:54.050
  • AND SOMEONE NEEDS TO KNOW
  • 00:08:54.050 --> 00:08:55.190
  • BECAUSE LIFE IS NOT
  • 00:08:55.190 --> 00:08:57.000
  • THIS NICE LITTLE LINEAR,
  • 00:08:57.000 --> 00:08:58.130
  • LIKE WE CAN TAKE OUR FAITH
  • 00:08:58.130 --> 00:08:59.220
  • AND JUST USE IT.
  • 00:08:59.220 --> 00:09:00.290
  • FAITH DOESN'T MANEUVER LIFE
  • 00:09:00.290 --> 00:09:03.250
  • AND MAKE EVERYTHING PERFECT.
  • 00:09:03.250 --> 00:09:05.140
  • IT IS NOT LIKE FAITH
  • 00:09:05.140 --> 00:09:06.270
  • PREVENTS LIFE.
  • 00:09:06.270 --> 00:09:08.110
  • FAITH CARRIES US
  • 00:09:08.110 --> 00:09:09.220
  • THROUGH LIFE.
  • 00:09:09.220 --> 00:09:11.000
  • I WISH I COULD SAY
  • 00:09:11.000 --> 00:09:12.070
  • THE BROKENNESS MOST PEOPLE
  • 00:09:12.070 --> 00:09:13.150
  • THAT KNEW MY STORY
  • 00:09:13.150 --> 00:09:14.220
  • KNEW THAT I DIDN'T GROW UP
  • 00:09:14.220 --> 00:09:16.000
  • IN CHURCH.
  • 00:09:16.000 --> 00:09:17.080
  • MY FATHER COMMITTED SUICIDE
  • 00:09:17.080 --> 00:09:18.160
  • WHEN I WAS FIVE YEARS OLD;
  • 00:09:18.160 --> 00:09:19.230
  • SEXUALLY AND
  • 00:09:19.230 --> 00:09:21.000
  • PHYSICALLY ABUSED
  • 00:09:21.000 --> 00:09:22.060
  • FROM A WELL TO DO FAMILY.
  • 00:09:22.060 --> 00:09:23.130
  • MY MOTHER HAD TWO MASTERS
  • 00:09:23.130 --> 00:09:24.220
  • AND DOCTORATE.
  • 00:09:24.220 --> 00:09:25.260
  • GOT SAVED
  • 00:09:25.260 --> 00:09:27.010
  • WHEN I'M 18 YEARS OLD.
  • 00:09:27.010 --> 00:09:28.050
  • FELL MADLY IN LOVE GOD,
  • 00:09:28.050 --> 00:09:29.090
  • STAYED IN HIS WORD.
  • 00:09:29.090 --> 00:09:30.130
  • I WISH I COULD SAY
  • 00:09:30.130 --> 00:09:31.180
  • MY PROBLEMS WERE JUST FROM
  • 00:09:31.180 --> 00:09:32.260
  • MY CHILDHOOD BUT THEY WEREN'T.
  • 00:09:32.260 --> 00:09:34.010
  • THEY WERE IN THE --
  • 00:09:34.010 --> 00:09:35.060
  • THERE'S A LOT OF MESS
  • 00:09:35.060 --> 00:09:36.120
  • IN THE MIDDLE.
  • 00:09:36.120 --> 00:09:37.260
  • AND PEOPLE DON'T LIKE TO TALK
  • 00:09:37.260 --> 00:09:39.120
  • ABOUT THOSE MESSY THINGS
  • 00:09:39.120 --> 00:09:40.270
  • BUT I FOUND OUT
  • 00:09:40.270 --> 00:09:42.060
  • THIS REALLY ISN'T MY STORY,
  • 00:09:42.060 --> 00:09:43.260
  • THIS IS ALL OF OUR STORIES.
  • 00:09:43.260 --> 00:09:46.090
  • I WAS EMBARRASSED.
  • 00:09:46.090 --> 00:09:47.280
  • WHEN YOU'RE IN
  • 00:09:47.280 --> 00:09:50.100
  • AN ABUSIVE SITUATION,
  • 00:09:50.100 --> 00:09:51.200
  • YOU BEGIN TO BELIEVE
  • 00:09:51.200 --> 00:09:52.290
  • THE LIES ABOUT YOURSELF.
  • 00:09:52.290 --> 00:09:54.080
  • I DIDN'T KNOW.
  • 00:09:54.080 --> 00:09:55.150
  • I DIDN'T KNOW WHERE TO TURN.
  • 00:09:55.150 --> 00:09:56.230
  • I DIDN'T KNOW WHO TO TRUST.
  • 00:09:56.230 --> 00:09:57.270
  • ULTIMATELY,
  • 00:09:57.270 --> 00:09:59.050
  • I WAS GIVEN AN ULTIMATUM.
  • 00:09:59.050 --> 00:10:00.290
  • IT WAS OUR ANNIVERSARY
  • 00:10:00.290 --> 00:10:02.030
  • AND HE SAID,
  • 00:10:02.030 --> 00:10:04.270
  • "I'VE GOT GOOD NEWS
  • 00:10:04.270 --> 00:10:06.050
  • AND BAD NEWS.
  • 00:10:06.050 --> 00:10:07.290
  • THE GOOD NEWS IS I LOVE YOU.
  • 00:10:07.290 --> 00:10:10.030
  • THE BAD NEWS IS
  • 00:10:10.030 --> 00:10:11.110
  • I'M NOT GOING TO STOP DOING
  • 00:10:11.110 --> 00:10:12.240
  • WHAT I'M DOING;
  • 00:10:12.240 --> 00:10:14.070
  • AND HERE'S THE ULTIMATUM."
  • 00:10:14.070 --> 00:10:15.180
  • AND I WRITE ABOUT IT
  • 00:10:15.180 --> 00:10:16.240
  • IN THE BOOK.
  • 00:10:16.240 --> 00:10:18.180
  • I SAID, "I CAN'T DO THAT."
  • 00:10:18.180 --> 00:10:21.150
  • "WELL,
  • 00:10:21.150 --> 00:10:22.230
  • YOU'LL LOSE EVERYTHING."
  • 00:10:22.230 --> 00:10:23.280
  • I SAID, "WELL,
  • 00:10:23.280 --> 00:10:25.200
  • I MAY LOSE EVERYTHING
  • 00:10:25.200 --> 00:10:27.230
  • BUT I'M NOT GOING TO LOSE ME."
  • 00:10:27.230 --> 00:10:30.160
  • AND IT'S SO HARD.
  • 00:10:30.160 --> 00:10:32.090
  • THE GREATEST BLESSING
  • 00:10:33.200 --> 00:10:34.240
  • IN MY LIFE
  • 00:10:34.240 --> 00:10:35.290
  • AND I SAY THIS NOW,
  • 00:10:35.290 --> 00:10:37.120
  • IS THAT GOD LOVED ME ENOUGH
  • 00:10:37.120 --> 00:10:39.070
  • BECAUSE IT WAS IN
  • 00:10:42.030 --> 00:10:43.160
  • COMPLETE BROKENNESS THAT
  • 00:10:43.160 --> 00:10:45.130
  • I FOUND THE GREATEST BEAUTY.
  • 00:10:45.130 --> 00:10:47.050
  • I FOUND SOMETHING GREATER
  • 00:10:47.050 --> 00:10:49.220
  • THAT EVERY MOMENT OF MY LIFE
  • 00:10:49.220 --> 00:10:51.090
  • I CAN LOOK BACK
  • 00:10:51.090 --> 00:10:52.180
  • AND I CAN TRACE IT,
  • 00:10:52.180 --> 00:10:53.270
  • WHETHER I WAS
  • 00:10:53.270 --> 00:10:55.090
  • THAT FIVE-YEAR OLD GIRL
  • 00:10:55.090 --> 00:10:56.190
  • AFTER MY FATHER
  • 00:10:56.190 --> 00:10:57.290
  • HAD COMMITTED SUICIDE
  • 00:10:57.290 --> 00:10:59.100
  • STANDING OUT
  • 00:10:59.100 --> 00:11:00.160
  • HOLDING THE JEWELRY BOX
  • 00:11:00.160 --> 00:11:01.240
  • HE'D GIVEN ME
  • 00:11:01.240 --> 00:11:02.270
  • WITH THE BALLERINA
  • 00:11:02.270 --> 00:11:04.030
  • TWIRLING AROUND
  • 00:11:04.030 --> 00:11:05.090
  • LOOKING UP AT THE SKY.
  • 00:11:05.090 --> 00:11:06.120
  • I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW
  • 00:11:06.120 --> 00:11:07.180
  • IT WAS THE HEAVENS.
  • 00:11:07.180 --> 00:11:08.210
  • I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW
  • 00:11:08.210 --> 00:11:09.240
  • WHO I WAS TALKING TO
  • 00:11:09.240 --> 00:11:10.270
  • BUT THERE WAS ETERNITY
  • 00:11:10.270 --> 00:11:12.010
  • IN MY HEART
  • 00:11:12.010 --> 00:11:13.060
  • SAYING THERE IS MORE.
  • 00:11:13.060 --> 00:11:14.090
  • DON'T YOU GIVE UP.
  • 00:11:14.090 --> 00:11:15.120
  • OR WHETHER IT WAS WHEN I GOT
  • 00:11:15.120 --> 00:11:16.170
  • PREGNANT OUT OF WEDLOCK AT 18
  • 00:11:16.170 --> 00:11:17.170
  • AND MY MOTHER
  • 00:11:17.170 --> 00:11:18.190
  • AND MY STEPFATHER SAID,
  • 00:11:18.190 --> 00:11:19.230
  • "IF YOU EVER TALK ABOUT JESUS
  • 00:11:19.230 --> 00:11:20.250
  • YOU'RE NOT WELCOME
  • 00:11:20.250 --> 00:11:21.270
  • IN OUR HOME."
  • 00:11:21.270 --> 00:11:23.020
  • THE REJECTION
  • 00:11:23.020 --> 00:11:24.050
  • THAT CAME WITH THAT.
  • 00:11:24.050 --> 00:11:25.080
  • HERE I AM 19 YEARS OLD,
  • 00:11:25.080 --> 00:11:26.150
  • AND DON'T HAVE INSURANCE,
  • 00:11:26.150 --> 00:11:27.170
  • DON'T HAVE ANYTHING,
  • 00:11:27.170 --> 00:11:28.210
  • LIVING IN A TRAILER
  • 00:11:28.210 --> 00:11:29.250
  • ON BILL MOXLEY ROAD
  • 00:11:29.250 --> 00:11:31.000
  • BECAUSE I'D BEEN CUT OFF.
  • 00:11:31.000 --> 00:11:32.050
  • I'D MADE SOME
  • 00:11:32.050 --> 00:11:33.090
  • NOT SO GOOD DECISIONS.
  • 00:11:33.090 --> 00:11:34.250
  • I'M HAVING THIS BABY
  • 00:11:34.250 --> 00:11:36.130
  • BY MYSELF.
  • 00:11:36.130 --> 00:11:37.220
  • NOBODY IS THERE
  • 00:11:37.220 --> 00:11:39.010
  • BUT THIS MEAN NURSE
  • 00:11:39.010 --> 00:11:40.120
  • THAT JUST WAS YELLING AT ME
  • 00:11:40.120 --> 00:11:41.260
  • AND SCREAMING AT ME.
  • 00:11:41.260 --> 00:11:43.080
  • I'M LIKE
  • 00:11:43.080 --> 00:11:44.160
  • I'VE NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE!
  • 00:11:44.160 --> 00:11:45.280
  • I DIDN'T KNOW.
  • 00:11:45.280 --> 00:11:47.120
  • I'M TRYING TO CREATE A FAMILY
  • 00:11:47.120 --> 00:11:48.270
  • BECAUSE ALL I WANTED
  • 00:11:48.270 --> 00:11:50.080
  • WAS A FAMILY, NOT KNOWING
  • 00:11:50.080 --> 00:11:51.180
  • THAT GOD HAD A FAMILY FOR ME,
  • 00:11:51.180 --> 00:11:54.080
  • JAMES.
  • 00:11:54.080 --> 00:11:56.030
  • James: BOY, I WANT EVERYBODY
  • 00:11:56.030 --> 00:11:57.080
  • TO KNOW THAT TOO.
  • 00:11:57.080 --> 00:11:58.120
  • Paula: BUT GOD HAD A FAMILY
  • 00:11:58.120 --> 00:11:59.190
  • AND I'M TRYING TO MAKE ONE,
  • 00:11:59.190 --> 00:12:01.080
  • CREATE SOMETHING.
  • 00:12:01.080 --> 00:12:02.160
  • I HAVE NO IDEA BECAUSE
  • 00:12:02.160 --> 00:12:03.290
  • THERE IS NO BACKDROP
  • 00:12:03.290 --> 00:12:05.050
  • IN MY LIFE
  • 00:12:05.050 --> 00:12:06.130
  • OF WHAT A FATHER LOOKS LIKE,
  • 00:12:06.130 --> 00:12:07.150
  • WHAT A MOTHER --
  • 00:12:07.150 --> 00:12:08.200
  • MY MOTHER BECAME AN ALCOHOLIC
  • 00:12:08.200 --> 00:12:09.270
  • AFTER MY FATHER'S DEATH
  • 00:12:09.270 --> 00:12:11.070
  • BECAUSE SHE DIDN'T KNOW
  • 00:12:11.070 --> 00:12:12.140
  • HOW TO DEAL WITH HER PAIN.
  • 00:12:12.140 --> 00:12:14.000
  • I GO THROUGH SO MANY
  • 00:12:14.000 --> 00:12:16.110
  • OF THE DIFFERENT DILEMMAS.
  • 00:12:16.110 --> 00:12:17.270
  • SO HERE, ALL THIS STUFF IS.
  • 00:12:17.270 --> 00:12:20.080
  • PEOPLE WANTED THE IMAGE.
  • 00:12:20.080 --> 00:12:23.020
  • THEY REALLY DID, MORE SO.
  • 00:12:23.020 --> 00:12:24.180
  • AND I WAS GOOD
  • 00:12:24.180 --> 00:12:26.050
  • WITH SHOWING THE IMAGE
  • 00:12:26.050 --> 00:12:27.190
  • BUT THE REALITY,
  • 00:12:27.190 --> 00:12:29.020
  • AND IN THIS BOOK,
  • 00:12:29.020 --> 00:12:30.120
  • THERE IS NO IMAGE.
  • 00:12:30.120 --> 00:12:31.190
  • I DISROBE AND SOMEONE SAID,
  • 00:12:31.190 --> 00:12:32.260
  • "YOU REVEAL
  • 00:12:32.260 --> 00:12:34.000
  • YOUR VULNERABLE PAIN
  • 00:12:34.000 --> 00:12:35.150
  • BECAUSE ALL OF US HAVE IT."
  • 00:12:35.150 --> 00:12:37.250
  • AND LIFE IS NOT
  • 00:12:37.250 --> 00:12:39.100
  • THIS PRETTY PICTURE ALWAYS.
  • 00:12:39.100 --> 00:12:41.060
  • WHAT I FOUND IS THAT MY LIFE
  • 00:12:41.060 --> 00:12:43.260
  • WITH OTHER PEOPLE'S LIFE,
  • 00:12:43.260 --> 00:12:45.130
  • AT SOME POINT IT INTERSECTS,
  • 00:12:45.130 --> 00:12:47.050
  • WHETHER IT IS THROUGH
  • 00:12:47.050 --> 00:12:48.110
  • THE CHILDHOOD OR THE CHILDREN
  • 00:12:48.110 --> 00:12:50.070
  • OR THE DIVORCE
  • 00:12:50.070 --> 00:12:51.150
  • OR THE MINISTRY
  • 00:12:51.150 --> 00:12:52.240
  • OR THE LOSS OF FINANCES
  • 00:12:52.240 --> 00:12:54.000
  • OR THE LOSS OF REPUTATION
  • 00:12:54.000 --> 00:12:55.040
  • OR THE LOSS OF LOVE
  • 00:12:55.040 --> 00:12:56.120
  • OR HEARTBREAK
  • 00:12:56.120 --> 00:12:57.190
  • OR THE DEPRESSION
  • 00:12:57.190 --> 00:12:58.260
  • OR THINKING, WHAT NOW?
  • 00:12:58.280 --> 00:13:02.000
  • IT IS OVER BUT ALWAYS THOUGHT
  • 00:13:02.000 --> 00:13:04.200
  • I HAD SOMETHING GREATER,
  • 00:13:04.200 --> 00:13:06.000
  • THIS DIVINE SENSE OF PURPOSE
  • 00:13:06.000 --> 00:13:07.080
  • AND THAT IS
  • 00:13:07.080 --> 00:13:08.160
  • YOUR SUPREME REASON FOR BEING.
  • 00:13:08.160 --> 00:13:09.190
  • AND WHAT THIS BOOK IS ABOUT
  • 00:13:09.190 --> 00:13:11.020
  • IS OUR LIVES INTERSECTING
  • 00:13:11.020 --> 00:13:13.190
  • TO LET YOU KNOW
  • 00:13:13.190 --> 00:13:14.280
  • THERE IS A GREAT GOD
  • 00:13:14.280 --> 00:13:16.120
  • THAT I DON'T CARE
  • 00:13:16.120 --> 00:13:17.200
  • HOW MANY TIMES
  • 00:13:17.200 --> 00:13:19.000
  • YOU HAVE FALLEN DOWN
  • 00:13:19.000 --> 00:13:20.070
  • OR HOW BROKEN THINGS ARE
  • 00:13:20.070 --> 00:13:21.200
  • OR WHAT CHAPTER
  • 00:13:21.200 --> 00:13:22.280
  • OR WHAT PARAGRAPH
  • 00:13:22.280 --> 00:13:24.060
  • OR WHAT SENTENCE
  • 00:13:24.060 --> 00:13:25.140
  • OR HOW DEEP OR HOW DARK
  • 00:13:25.140 --> 00:13:26.260
  • OR HOW DEMONIC
  • 00:13:26.260 --> 00:13:28.070
  • IT IS RIGHT NOW, THAT GOD,
  • 00:13:28.070 --> 00:13:30.050
  • I JUST SAID, DON'T QUIT.
  • 00:13:30.050 --> 00:13:31.240
  • LIKE GOD SAYS,
  • 00:13:31.240 --> 00:13:33.070
  • "I HAVE SOMETHING GREATER ."
  • 00:13:33.070 --> 00:13:34.180
  • AND SOMETHING GREATER
  • 00:13:34.180 --> 00:13:35.290
  • NECESSARILY, ANOTHER MARRIAGE,
  • 00:13:37.200 --> 00:13:40.060
  • A NEW CAR, A BETTER MINISTRY.
  • 00:13:40.060 --> 00:13:41.190
  • IT IS NONE OF THAT.
  • 00:13:41.190 --> 00:13:43.070
  • I'M OKAY.
  • 00:13:45.210 --> 00:13:47.040
  • I'M GOOD.
  • 00:13:47.040 --> 00:13:48.240
  • HE LOVES ME.
  • 00:13:48.240 --> 00:13:49.290
  • I REMEMBER THE DAY I SAID,
  • 00:13:49.290 --> 00:13:51.160
  • "GOD, WHAT IF I NEVER PREACH
  • 00:13:51.160 --> 00:13:52.260
  • ANOTHER SERMON?"
  • 00:13:52.260 --> 00:13:54.020
  • HE'S LIKE, "I LOVE YOU."
  • 00:13:54.020 --> 00:13:56.190
  • I DIDN'T HAVE TO DO.
  • 00:13:56.190 --> 00:13:58.250
  • MEANING LIKE I DID
  • 00:13:58.250 --> 00:14:00.060
  • THAT I KNOW THERE IS PURPOSE
  • 00:14:00.060 --> 00:14:01.130
  • BUT THERE IS
  • 00:14:01.130 --> 00:14:02.230
  • SOMETHING GREATER
  • 00:14:02.230 --> 00:14:03.290
  • IS HE HAD GREAT PEACE FOR ME,
  • 00:14:03.290 --> 00:14:05.060
  • GREAT JOY.
  • 00:14:05.060 --> 00:14:06.150
  • DO YOU KNOW WHAT
  • 00:14:06.150 --> 00:14:07.230
  • MY PRAYER BECAME, JAMES?
  • 00:14:07.230 --> 00:14:09.080
  • I JUST WANT TO DIE WHOLE.
  • 00:14:09.080 --> 00:14:12.000
  • I JUST WANTED HIS WHOLENESS.
  • 00:14:12.000 --> 00:14:14.220
  • AND IT WASN'T
  • 00:14:14.220 --> 00:14:17.140
  • I WANT A MILLION DOLLARS
  • 00:14:17.140 --> 00:14:18.230
  • IN THE BANK.
  • 00:14:18.230 --> 00:14:20.040
  • I WANT A BIG MINISTRY.
  • 00:14:20.040 --> 00:14:21.130
  • I WANT RESTORATION HERE.
  • 00:14:21.130 --> 00:14:22.260
  • I JUST WANTED
  • 00:14:22.260 --> 00:14:24.110
  • JUST TO WAKE UP EVERY DAY
  • 00:14:24.110 --> 00:14:26.130
  • AND WHEN I STOPPED PURSUING
  • 00:14:26.130 --> 00:14:28.250
  • ALL THESE THINGS
  • 00:14:28.250 --> 00:14:30.170
  • THAT I THOUGHT,
  • 00:14:30.170 --> 00:14:32.010
  • GOD SPOKE TO ME WHEN
  • 00:14:32.010 --> 00:14:33.190
  • I WAS 18 YEARS OLD AND SAID,
  • 00:14:33.190 --> 00:14:34.250
  • "YOU'LL SEE NATIONS CHANGED."
  • 00:14:34.250 --> 00:14:37.230
  • I DID EVERYTHING
  • 00:14:37.230 --> 00:14:39.010
  • THAT I THOUGHT HE ASKED OF ME.
  • 00:14:39.010 --> 00:14:40.180
  • BUILT ONE
  • 00:14:40.180 --> 00:14:41.280
  • OF THE LARGEST CHURCHES,
  • 00:14:41.280 --> 00:14:43.060
  • CREATED ONE OF THE BIGGEST
  • 00:14:43.060 --> 00:14:44.210
  • MEDIA MINISTRIES,
  • 00:14:44.210 --> 00:14:45.280
  • DID ALL THESE THINGS,
  • 00:14:45.280 --> 00:14:47.140
  • AND GOD USED THOSE THINGS
  • 00:14:47.140 --> 00:14:48.290
  • BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:14:48.290 --> 00:14:50.080
  • THOSE WEREN'T THE WAYS
  • 00:14:50.080 --> 00:14:51.290
  • I SAW NATIONS CHANGED.
  • 00:14:51.290 --> 00:14:53.120
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:14:53.120 --> 00:14:54.200
  • IT'S TAKEN ME 53 YEARS,
  • 00:14:54.200 --> 00:14:56.000
  • LIKE PAULA,
  • 00:14:56.000 --> 00:14:57.110
  • GET OUT OF THE WAY
  • 00:14:57.110 --> 00:14:58.210
  • AND STOP TRYING
  • 00:14:58.210 --> 00:14:59.250
  • TO PUT YOUR HANDS ON THE ARK
  • 00:14:59.250 --> 00:15:01.030
  • AND HELP GOD OUT.
  • 00:15:01.030 --> 00:15:02.120
  • WHAT HAPPENED WAS
  • 00:15:02.120 --> 00:15:03.210
  • 18 YEARS AGO GOD GAVE ME
  • 00:15:03.210 --> 00:15:04.260
  • THIS CRAZY ASSIGNMENT,
  • 00:15:04.260 --> 00:15:06.290
  • THIS MAN
  • 00:15:06.290 --> 00:15:08.080
  • BY THE NAME OF DONALD TRUMP
  • 00:15:08.080 --> 00:15:10.070
  • AT THE TIME
  • 00:15:10.070 --> 00:15:11.180
  • CALLED ME OUT THE BLUE.
  • 00:15:11.180 --> 00:15:12.260
  • HE WAS WATCHING
  • 00:15:12.260 --> 00:15:14.030
  • CHRISTIAN TELEVISION,
  • 00:15:14.030 --> 00:15:15.120
  • WHICH HE'D DO OFTEN,
  • 00:15:15.120 --> 00:15:16.220
  • WATCH YOUR PROGRAM,
  • 00:15:16.220 --> 00:15:18.010
  • WATCH SO MANY PROGRAMS.
  • 00:15:18.010 --> 00:15:19.080
  • I JUST THINK,
  • 00:15:19.080 --> 00:15:20.180
  • THIS BILLIONAIRE
  • 00:15:20.180 --> 00:15:21.240
  • NEEDS THE LORD.
  • 00:15:21.240 --> 00:15:23.050
  • GOD SAID, "SHOW HIM WHO I AM."
  • 00:15:23.050 --> 00:15:24.130
  • I KNOW THE LORD'S VOICE.
  • 00:15:24.130 --> 00:15:26.200
  • LITTLE DID I KNOW
  • 00:15:26.200 --> 00:15:27.280
  • 18 YEARS LATER
  • 00:15:27.280 --> 00:15:29.220
  • THAT HE WOULD,
  • 00:15:29.220 --> 00:15:31.080
  • OR AT THAT TIME
  • 00:15:31.080 --> 00:15:32.180
  • 16 YEARS LATER THAT
  • 00:15:32.180 --> 00:15:33.240
  • HE WOULD BECOME PRESIDENT
  • 00:15:33.240 --> 00:15:35.080
  • OF THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:15:35.080 --> 00:15:36.170
  • AND THAT THE WAY
  • 00:15:36.170 --> 00:15:37.250
  • THAT NATIONS WOULD BE SHAKEN
  • 00:15:37.250 --> 00:15:38.280
  • WOULD NOT BE THROUGH ANYTHING
  • 00:15:38.280 --> 00:15:40.070
  • THAT I DID BUT THROUGH
  • 00:15:40.070 --> 00:15:41.230
  • WHAT THE CHURCH WOULD DO
  • 00:15:41.230 --> 00:15:43.030
  • AND HOW GOD
  • 00:15:43.030 --> 00:15:44.140
  • WOULD USE THE CHURCH
  • 00:15:44.140 --> 00:15:45.210
  • TO SHOW THIS MAN HIS LOVE
  • 00:15:45.210 --> 00:15:47.020
  • AND TO SHOW THE WORLD
  • 00:15:47.020 --> 00:15:48.090
  • HIS LOVE.
  • 00:15:48.090 --> 00:15:49.240
  • James: DO YOU THINK HE DOES
  • 00:15:49.240 --> 00:15:51.040
  • REALLY WANT TO HEAR COUNSEL?
  • 00:15:51.040 --> 00:15:52.090
  • HE TOLD ME HE WANTED
  • 00:15:52.090 --> 00:15:53.170
  • TO HEAR WISDOM.
  • 00:15:53.170 --> 00:15:54.230
  • DO YOU BELIEVE HE DOES?
  • 00:15:54.230 --> 00:15:55.280
  • Paula: I ONE HUNDRED PERCENT
  • 00:15:55.280 --> 00:15:57.070
  • KNOW HE DOES.
  • 00:15:57.070 --> 00:15:58.150
  • I'VE GOTTEN AN INSIDE VIEW
  • 00:15:58.150 --> 00:15:59.200
  • AND I'VE WATCHED IT.
  • 00:15:59.200 --> 00:16:01.020
  • HIS HUNGER, HIS DESIRE,
  • 00:16:01.070 --> 00:16:04.070
  • THE PEOPLE
  • 00:16:04.070 --> 00:16:05.230
  • THAT HE WANTS AROUND HIM.
  • 00:16:05.230 --> 00:16:07.090
  • AND JAMES, THE IMPACT
  • 00:16:07.090 --> 00:16:08.160
  • YOU'VE HAD ON HIM, HIS SONS,
  • 00:16:08.160 --> 00:16:11.160
  • THEIR FAMILY, YOU ALWAYS
  • 00:16:11.160 --> 00:16:14.020
  • SPEAK LOVE AND TRUTH.
  • 00:16:14.020 --> 00:16:15.240
  • BUT IT IS NOT
  • 00:16:15.240 --> 00:16:17.050
  • JUST WHAT YOU SPEAK,
  • 00:16:17.050 --> 00:16:18.070
  • IT'S WHAT YOU LIVE.
  • 00:16:18.070 --> 00:16:20.080
  • AND IT IS WHAT YOU'VE LIVED.
  • 00:16:20.080 --> 00:16:21.150
  • AND I THINK THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:16:21.150 --> 00:16:23.020
  • THIS BOOK IS SO MUCH ABOUT
  • 00:16:23.020 --> 00:16:24.110
  • IS THAT WE'RE ALL
  • 00:16:24.110 --> 00:16:25.190
  • LIVING EPISTLES.
  • 00:16:25.220 --> 00:16:28.220
  • IF OUR LIFE CAN PREACH GRACE
  • 00:16:28.220 --> 00:16:30.250
  • AND STRENGTH AND COME BACK,
  • 00:16:30.250 --> 00:16:32.230
  • AND GOODNESS AND FAVOR
  • 00:16:32.230 --> 00:16:35.220
  • THE BOTTOM LINE IS
  • 00:16:37.280 --> 00:16:39.110
  • THERE IS NOTHING
  • 00:16:39.110 --> 00:16:40.200
  • TOO DIFFICULT FOR GOD.
  • 00:16:40.200 --> 00:16:41.250
  • AND GOD HAS PUT A SENSE
  • 00:16:41.250 --> 00:16:43.030
  • AND HE JUST WANTS US TO COME
  • 00:16:45.200 --> 00:16:46.280
  • IN ALIGNMENT WITH HIM.
  • 00:16:46.280 --> 00:16:48.000
  • THAT'S WHAT THIS BOOK,
  • 00:16:48.000 --> 00:16:49.020
  • IT IS NOT ABOUT
  • 00:16:49.020 --> 00:16:50.090
  • MY SOMETHING GREATER,
  • 00:16:50.090 --> 00:16:51.120
  • IT'S ABOUT
  • 00:16:51.120 --> 00:16:52.250
  • YOUR SOMETHING GREATER.
  • 00:16:52.250 --> 00:16:54.070
  • IT IS THAT GOD HAS
  • 00:16:54.070 --> 00:16:55.170
  • SOMETHING GREATER FOR YOU.
  • 00:16:55.170 --> 00:16:56.280
  • THIS IS REALLY HARD
  • 00:16:56.280 --> 00:16:58.070
  • FOR PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:16:58.070 --> 00:16:59.240
  • BECAUSE I WAS GREAT
  • 00:16:59.240 --> 00:17:01.070
  • AT BEING --
  • 00:17:01.070 --> 00:17:03.270
  • WHEN I WAS GROWING UP,
  • 00:17:03.270 --> 00:17:05.060
  • I BECAME
  • 00:17:05.060 --> 00:17:06.160
  • A MASTERFUL MANIPULATOR,
  • 00:17:06.160 --> 00:17:08.160
  • JAMES, WHEN I WOULD SAY,
  • 00:17:08.160 --> 00:17:10.020
  • "BUT YOU DON'T KNOW!
  • 00:17:10.020 --> 00:17:11.080
  • YOUR DADDY
  • 00:17:11.080 --> 00:17:12.120
  • DIDN'T KILL HIMSELF."
  • 00:17:12.120 --> 00:17:13.190
  • I COULD GET MY MOM,
  • 00:17:13.190 --> 00:17:14.250
  • I COULD GET EVERY TEACHER.
  • 00:17:14.250 --> 00:17:16.060
  • IF I GOT BACKED INTO A CORNER
  • 00:17:16.060 --> 00:17:17.150
  • AND FELT TOO SCARED,
  • 00:17:17.150 --> 00:17:18.200
  • "YOU DON'T KNOW!
  • 00:17:18.200 --> 00:17:20.050
  • YOUR DADDY
  • 00:17:20.050 --> 00:17:21.140
  • DIDN'T KILL HIMSELF."
  • 00:17:21.140 --> 00:17:22.210
  • I COULD WEAR
  • 00:17:22.210 --> 00:17:23.260
  • THAT VICTIMHOOD SO WELL.
  • 00:17:23.260 --> 00:17:26.090
  • AND GOD REALLY
  • 00:17:26.090 --> 00:17:28.090
  • HAD TO DELIVER ME
  • 00:17:28.090 --> 00:17:29.180
  • James: IT'S NOT THERE NOW.
  • 00:17:30.220 --> 00:17:31.230
  • IT'S GONE.
  • 00:17:31.230 --> 00:17:32.270
  • IT'S AWESOME TO WATCH.
  • 00:17:32.270 --> 00:17:34.010
  • Paula: BECAUSE
  • 00:17:34.010 --> 00:17:35.050
  • WHAT HAPPENED IN HERE THAT'S
  • 00:17:35.050 --> 00:17:36.110
  • IS THAT IT CHANGES
  • 00:17:37.240 --> 00:17:40.040
  • YOUR PERCEPTION.
  • 00:17:40.040 --> 00:17:41.260
  • BECAUSE I RECOGNIZE NOW THAT
  • 00:17:42.170 --> 00:17:45.170
  • A SOVEREIGN GOD HAS A PLAN
  • 00:17:45.170 --> 00:17:47.130
  • FOR ALL OF OUR LIVES.
  • 00:17:47.130 --> 00:17:48.260
  • THAT THE ONLY WAY
  • 00:17:48.260 --> 00:17:50.050
  • IT COULD BE ABORTED
  • 00:17:50.050 --> 00:17:51.100
  • IS IF WE LET GO OF IT.
  • 00:17:51.100 --> 00:17:52.230
  • AND THAT WHAT IF MY FATHER,
  • 00:17:52.230 --> 00:17:55.070
  • EVERYBODY IS LIKE,
  • 00:17:55.070 --> 00:17:56.120
  • OH I'M SO SORRY,
  • 00:17:56.120 --> 00:17:57.190
  • YOUR DADDY DIED.
  • 00:17:57.190 --> 00:17:58.230
  • BUT EVERYTHING I NEEDED
  • 00:17:58.230 --> 00:17:59.280
  • I GOT FROM MY FATHER
  • 00:17:59.280 --> 00:18:01.060
  • IN FIVE YEARS --
  • 00:18:01.060 --> 00:18:02.150
  • EVERYTHING I NEEDED.
  • 00:18:02.150 --> 00:18:03.230
  • BECAUSE I THINK
  • 00:18:03.230 --> 00:18:06.090
  • WHAT IF HE WOULD HAVE LIVED?
  • 00:18:06.090 --> 00:18:08.190
  • I KNOW THE DYSFUNCTION
  • 00:18:08.190 --> 00:18:10.030
  • OF MY FATHER.
  • 00:18:10.030 --> 00:18:12.020
  • I WOULDN'T BE WHO I AM TODAY.
  • 00:18:12.020 --> 00:18:14.110
  • I WOULD HAVE BEEN FORMED
  • 00:18:14.110 --> 00:18:15.240
  • COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.
  • 00:18:15.240 --> 00:18:17.040
  • AND MAYBE I WOULD HAVE BEEN
  • 00:18:17.040 --> 00:18:18.110
  • THE ONE THAT TOOK MY LIFE.
  • 00:18:18.110 --> 00:18:20.030
  • SO WE SOMETIMES
  • 00:18:20.030 --> 00:18:21.130
  • DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:18:21.130 --> 00:18:22.280
  • THE DARK PLACES.
  • 00:18:22.280 --> 00:18:25.140
  • GOD WILL USE THAT.
  • 00:18:25.140 --> 00:18:27.140
  • James: YOU'RE DOING YOUR BEST
  • 00:18:27.140 --> 00:18:28.260
  • TO REVEAL THE LIGHT
  • 00:18:28.260 --> 00:18:30.030
  • AND THE TRUTH.
  • 00:18:30.030 --> 00:18:31.120
  • DO YOU APPRECIATE PAULA WHITE
  • 00:18:31.120 --> 00:18:32.160
  • ON HER JOURNEY?
  • 00:18:32.160 --> 00:18:33.280
  • PAULA, I JUST THANK GOD
  • 00:18:33.280 --> 00:18:35.090
  • FOR HIS GRACE.
  • 00:18:35.090 --> 00:18:36.180
  • THIS IS AN UNBELIEVABLE STORY.
  • 00:18:36.180 --> 00:18:38.220
  • HER LIFE IS WRITING A STORY.
  • 00:18:38.220 --> 00:18:40.270
  • CAN I JUST TELL YOU THIS?
  • 00:18:42.070 --> 00:18:43.110
  • WHAT SHE'S DOING.
  • 00:18:43.110 --> 00:18:44.180
  • TWO REASONS, SHE LOVES GOD.
  • 00:18:45.100 --> 00:18:48.100
  • LOVE HER NEIGHBOR.
  • 00:18:49.230 --> 00:18:50.260
  • SHE REALLY LOVES YOU.
  • 00:18:50.260 --> 00:18:52.070
  • AND I'VE WATCHED.
  • 00:18:52.070 --> 00:18:53.110
  • I'M TELLING YOU,

  • THAT'S WHY BETTY AND I DO

  • I PROMISE YOU IT IS.
  • 00:18:56.260 --> 00:18:58.020
  • THAT'S ALL.
  • 00:18:58.020 --> 00:18:59.060
  • FATHER, THANK YOU
  • 00:18:59.060 --> 00:19:00.120

  • AND THANKS TO PAULA?
  • 00:19:12.290 --> 00:19:14.010
  • WHAT A BLESSING!
  • 00:19:14.010 --> 00:19:15.030
  • THE BOOK IS IN THE BOOKSTORES.

  • I KNOW YOU REALLY APPRECIATE.
  • 00:19:18.100 --> 00:19:19.120
  • WE'RE RESCUING PRECIOUS PEOPLE
  • 00:19:19.120 --> 00:19:20.140
  • WHO HAVE BEEN
  • 00:19:20.140 --> 00:19:21.240
  • ALL THOSE MISSIONARIES HAVE
  • 00:19:23.150 --> 00:19:25.170
  • IS HOPE AND A PRAYER
  • 00:19:25.170 --> 00:19:27.150
  • UNTIL YOU BECOME
  • 00:19:27.150 --> 00:19:28.180
  • THE ANSWER TO THAT PRAYER.
  • 00:19:28.180 --> 00:19:30.030
  • AND THEN YOU MAKE IT POSSIBLE
  • 00:19:30.030 --> 00:19:31.110
  • FOR THEM TO FULFILL
  • 00:19:31.110 --> 00:19:32.180

  • MANY WHO ARE TRAPPED.
  • 00:19:37.260 --> 00:19:38.290
  • YOU HAVE JUST WORKED MIRACLES
  • 00:19:38.290 --> 00:19:40.150
  • IN THOUSANDS
  • 00:19:40.150 --> 00:19:41.150

  • AND BEING TAKEN INTO
  • 00:19:49.120 --> 00:19:50.270
  • THE DARKNESS AND THE EVIL
  • 00:19:50.270 --> 00:19:52.210
  • OF LIFE AND BEING ABUSED,
  • 00:19:52.210 --> 00:19:54.160
  • AND POSSIBLY DYING
  • 00:19:54.160 --> 00:19:56.160

  • THESE CHILDREN ARE LIED TO

  • THEY'LL KNOW THE DIFFERENCE
  • 00:20:04.050 --> 00:20:05.090

  • SAVE THEIR LIVES, POSSIBLY.
  • 00:20:11.280 --> 00:20:13.160
  • James: IT COSTS AN AVERAGE
  • 00:20:13.160 --> 00:20:14.200
  • OF $128 TO REACH ONE;
  • 00:20:14.200 --> 00:20:17.080
  • TO RESCUE THEM AND TO BEGIN
  • 00:20:17.080 --> 00:20:18.180
  • THE RESTORATION PROCESS.
  • 00:20:18.180 --> 00:20:20.170
  • WOULD YOU HELP?
  • 00:20:20.170 --> 00:20:21.290
  • DID YOU KNOW WE'VE HAD
  • 00:20:21.290 --> 00:20:23.020
  • SOME FRIENDS STEP UP AND SAY,
  • 00:20:23.020 --> 00:20:24.050
  • "WE'LL PUT UP
  • 00:20:24.050 --> 00:20:25.090
  • A $320.000 MATCHING GIFT"?
  • 00:20:25.100 --> 00:20:28.100
  • WHICH MEANS IF YOU HELP ONE
  • 00:20:28.100 --> 00:20:29.270
  • IT'S TWO.
  • 00:20:29.270 --> 00:20:31.010
  • I ALWAYS CHALLENGE PEOPLE
  • 00:20:31.010 --> 00:20:32.040
  • AND I ALWAYS WILL DO THIS.
  • 00:20:32.040 --> 00:20:33.130
  • PLEASE THINK MUCH BIGGER
  • 00:20:33.130 --> 00:20:34.180
  • THAN YOU NORMALLY DO

  • WHEN IT COMES
  • 00:20:35.230 --> 00:20:36.250
  • TO MISSION OUTREACH.
  • 00:20:36.250 --> 00:20:38.020
  • $1280 RESCUES TEN.
  • 00:20:38.020 --> 00:20:40.110
  • BUT NOW IT WILL RESCUE 20.
