  • Announcer: RUTH GRAHAM REVEALS HOW SHE LEARNED
  • 00:00:07.040 --> 00:00:09.010
  • TO RELEASE THE UNFORGIVENESS LURKING IN HER HEART.
  • 00:00:09.040 --> 00:00:11.240
  • - WHEN I NEEDED HIM THE MOST,
  • 00:00:11.270 --> 00:00:13.240
  • HE SEEMED TO BE THE FARTHEST AWAY.
  • 00:00:13.270 --> 00:00:15.240
  • AND I GREW UP WITH A SENSE OF ABANDONMENT.
  • 00:00:15.270 --> 00:00:17.260
  • I DID NOT WANT TO BELIEVE THAT WAS TRUE.
  • 00:00:17.290 --> 00:00:19.270
  • BUT IT WAS TRUE.
  • 00:00:20.000 --> 00:00:21.270
  • THAT PIECE OF THE PUZZLE FIT.
  • 00:00:22.000 --> 00:00:23.270
  • NOW, I DON'T BLAME DADDY AT ALL.
  • 00:00:24.000 --> 00:00:25.270
  • THESE WERE MY CHOICES.
  • 00:00:26.000 --> 00:00:27.270
  • BUT I HAD TO FACE THE FACT.
  • 00:00:28.000 --> 00:00:29.270
  • AND LIKE I SAID, THE PIECE FIT THE PUZZLE.
  • 00:00:30.000 --> 00:00:33.040
  • AND I WAS ABLE TO THEN FORGIVE MYSELF.
  • 00:00:33.070 --> 00:00:36.020
  • 00:00:43.240 --> 00:00:51.150
  • James: IT IS AN HONOR
  • 00:00:57.220 --> 00:01:00.240
  • TO HAVE ALL OF YOU HERE
  • 00:01:00.240 --> 00:01:01.290
  • TO COME INTO YOUR HOME
  • 00:01:03.090 --> 00:01:04.130
  • OR WHEREVER YOU'RE WATCHING.
  • 00:01:04.130 --> 00:01:05.210
  • IT DOESN'T MATTER.
  • 00:01:05.210 --> 00:01:06.280
  • WE'RE HONORED THAT
  • 00:01:06.280 --> 00:01:08.030
  • YOU WOULD GIVE US A MOMENT.
  • 00:01:08.030 --> 00:01:09.080
  • MY WIFE BETTY AND
  • 00:01:10.120 --> 00:01:11.150
  • I WELCOME YOU TO LIFE TODAY .
  • 00:01:11.150 --> 00:01:12.170
  • ONE OF OUR BEST FRIENDS AND,
  • 00:01:12.170 --> 00:01:13.240
  • AS FAR AS WE'RE CONCERNED,
  • 00:01:13.240 --> 00:01:14.270
  • FAMILY FOREVER
  • 00:01:14.270 --> 00:01:16.030
  • IS BILLY GRAHAM'S DAUGHTER
  • 00:01:16.030 --> 00:01:17.080
  • AND RUTH GRAHAM'S DAUGHTER,
  • 00:01:17.080 --> 00:01:18.200
  • RUTH; WHICH WOULD BE
  • 00:01:18.200 --> 00:01:20.030
  • QUITE A TRIBUTE
  • 00:01:20.030 --> 00:01:21.160
  • THAT YOU GOT MOM'S NAME.
  • 00:01:21.160 --> 00:01:23.010
  • BECAUSE, BOY,
  • 00:01:23.010 --> 00:01:24.140
  • DAD SURE THOUGHT A LOT
  • 00:01:24.140 --> 00:01:25.240
  • ABOUT MOM, RUTH.
  • 00:01:25.240 --> 00:01:28.240
  • PRECIOUS MOMENTS OF JUST
  • 00:01:28.240 --> 00:01:30.280
  • HOW MUCH BILLY LOVED
  • 00:01:30.280 --> 00:01:33.050
  • AND RESPECTED RUTH,
  • 00:01:33.050 --> 00:01:34.230
  • A MISSIONARY FAMILY.
  • 00:01:34.230 --> 00:01:36.140
  • WELL, RUTH GRAHAM HAS BEEN
  • 00:01:37.020 --> 00:01:40.020
  • CLOSE TO US A LONG TIME.
  • 00:01:40.020 --> 00:01:41.290
  • WOULD YOU WELCOME RUTH GRAHAM?
  • 00:01:41.290 --> 00:01:44.080
  • [Applause]
  • 00:01:45.220 --> 00:01:48.220
  • I DO FEEL LIKE WE'RE FAMILY.
  • 00:01:48.220 --> 00:01:51.120
  • Ruth: YOU'RE THE BIG BROTHER
  • 00:01:51.120 --> 00:01:52.230
  • I NEVER HAD.
  • 00:01:52.230 --> 00:01:53.270
  • [Laughing]
  • 00:01:53.270 --> 00:01:55.050
  • James: WELL, I TELL YOU WHAT.
  • 00:01:55.050 --> 00:01:56.110
  • I DIDN'T HAVE A SISTER.
  • 00:01:56.110 --> 00:01:57.160
  • I WAS AN ONLY CHILD, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:01:57.160 --> 00:01:58.240
  • AND GOSH, YOU ARE OUR SISTER.
  • 00:01:59.130 --> 00:02:02.150
  • AND YOUR DADDY
  • 00:02:02.150 --> 00:02:03.250
  • SENT YOU DOWN HERE
  • 00:02:03.250 --> 00:02:05.030
  • WHEN YOU WERE QUITE YOUNG
  • 00:02:05.030 --> 00:02:06.070
  • TO HELP ME
  • 00:02:06.070 --> 00:02:07.150
  • WHEN I WAS QUITE YOUNG.
  • 00:02:07.150 --> 00:02:09.150
  • YOUR DAD REALLY LOVED
  • 00:02:09.150 --> 00:02:10.240
  • OUR MINISTRY.
  • 00:02:10.240 --> 00:02:11.270
  • WE REALLY LOVED HIM.
  • 00:02:11.270 --> 00:02:13.050
  • Ruth: AND HE LOVED YOU.
  • 00:02:13.050 --> 00:02:14.120
  • James: I KNOW THAT HE DID.
  • 00:02:14.120 --> 00:02:15.200
  • NOW, THIS IS REALLY SOMETHING.
  • 00:02:15.200 --> 00:02:18.140
  • I THINK THIS COULD BE ONE
  • 00:02:18.140 --> 00:02:19.230
  • OF THE MOST IMPORTANT BOOKS
  • 00:02:19.230 --> 00:02:20.290
  • THAT ANYBODY'S WRITTEN.
  • 00:02:20.290 --> 00:02:22.230
  • NOT JUST BECAUSE
  • 00:02:22.230 --> 00:02:24.010
  • YOU'RE A GRAHAM
  • 00:02:24.010 --> 00:02:25.080
  • BUT LOOK AT WHAT IT SAYS.
  • 00:02:25.080 --> 00:02:26.140
  • IT'S ON FORGIVENESS,
  • 00:02:26.140 --> 00:02:27.210
  • AND THE TITLE,
  • 00:02:27.210 --> 00:02:28.270
  • FORGIVING MY FATHER,
  • 00:02:29.020 --> 00:02:32.020
  • FORGIVING MYSELF.
  • 00:02:32.020 --> 00:02:34.210
  • TWO BIGGEST CHALLENGES?
  • 00:02:34.210 --> 00:02:36.040
  • Ruth: ABSOLUTELY.
  • 00:02:36.040 --> 00:02:37.170
  • James: SO PEOPLE WOULD SAY,
  • 00:02:37.170 --> 00:02:39.010
  • WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE YOU
  • 00:02:39.010 --> 00:02:40.100
  • FORGIVING BILLY GRAHAM FOR?
  • 00:02:40.100 --> 00:02:42.170
  • OR WHAT WERE YOU
  • 00:02:42.170 --> 00:02:43.270
  • FORGIVING DADDY FOR?
  • 00:02:43.270 --> 00:02:45.220
  • Ruth: WELL, JAMES,
  • 00:02:45.220 --> 00:02:47.020
  • I GREW UP AS A LITTLE GIRL
  • 00:02:47.020 --> 00:02:48.170
  • WITH A DADDY
  • 00:02:48.170 --> 00:02:49.220
  • THAT WAS FAR AWAY.
  • 00:02:49.220 --> 00:02:50.250
  • I WANTED HIM
  • 00:02:50.250 --> 00:02:52.010
  • TO TUCK ME INTO BED,
  • 00:02:52.010 --> 00:02:53.080
  • BUT HE WASN'T THERE.
  • 00:02:53.080 --> 00:02:54.140
  • I WANTED HIM TO TEACH ME
  • 00:02:54.140 --> 00:02:55.200
  • TO RIDE THE BICYCLE.
  • 00:02:55.200 --> 00:02:56.280
  • BUT HE WASN'T THERE.
  • 00:02:56.280 --> 00:02:58.050
  • WHEN I NEEDED HIM THE MOST,
  • 00:02:58.050 --> 00:02:59.130
  • HE SEEMED TO BE
  • 00:02:59.130 --> 00:03:00.250
  • THE FARTHEST AWAY.
  • 00:03:00.250 --> 00:03:02.030
  • AND I GREW UP
  • 00:03:02.030 --> 00:03:03.150
  • WITH A SENSE OF ABANDONMENT.
  • 00:03:03.150 --> 00:03:04.200
  • I DID NOT WANT TO BELIEVE
  • 00:03:04.200 --> 00:03:05.280
  • THAT WAS TRUE.
  • 00:03:05.280 --> 00:03:07.050
  • BUT SOMEONE CONFRONTED ME
  • 00:03:07.050 --> 00:03:08.150
  • SOME YEARS AGO,
  • 00:03:08.150 --> 00:03:09.180
  • BEFORE MY FATHER DIED
  • 00:03:09.180 --> 00:03:10.240
  • BUT AFTER HE WAS CONVERSANT,
  • 00:03:10.240 --> 00:03:12.000
  • SO I COULDN'T HAVE
  • 00:03:12.000 --> 00:03:13.070
  • THAT CONVERSATION WITH HIM.
  • 00:03:13.070 --> 00:03:15.280
  • BUT THEY TOLD ME, RUTH,
  • 00:03:15.280 --> 00:03:17.080
  • A SENSE OF ABANDONMENT.
  • 00:03:18.150 --> 00:03:19.180
  • I DID NOT WANT
  • 00:03:19.180 --> 00:03:20.210
  • THAT TO BE TRUE.
  • 00:03:20.210 --> 00:03:21.250
  • BUT IT WAS TRUE.
  • 00:03:21.250 --> 00:03:23.000
  • BECAUSE, YOU SEE,
  • 00:03:25.200 --> 00:03:26.250
  • JAMES, AS YOU KNOW,
  • 00:03:26.250 --> 00:03:28.000
  • I'VE BEEN MARRIED
  • 00:03:28.000 --> 00:03:29.110
  • AND DIVORCED FOUR TIMES.
  • 00:03:29.110 --> 00:03:30.210
  • AND I THOUGHT THAT
  • 00:03:30.210 --> 00:03:31.280
  • I MIGHT NOT EVEN BE SAVED.
  • 00:03:31.280 --> 00:03:33.060
  • I MEAN,
  • 00:03:33.060 --> 00:03:34.160
  • HOW COULD I POSSIBLY KEEP
  • 00:03:34.160 --> 00:03:35.220
  • GOING THROUGH THIS THING.
  • 00:03:35.220 --> 00:03:36.270
  • YOU KNOW,
  • 00:03:36.270 --> 00:03:38.070
  • THE DEFINITION OF INSANITY
  • 00:03:38.070 --> 00:03:39.120
  • IS DOING THE SAME THING
  • 00:03:39.120 --> 00:03:40.180
  • THINKING YOU WILL GET
  • 00:03:40.180 --> 00:03:41.250
  • A DIFFERENT RESULT.
  • 00:03:41.250 --> 00:03:43.010
  • BUT I GREW UP
  • 00:03:43.010 --> 00:03:44.070
  • WITH WANTING SECURITY THAT
  • 00:03:44.070 --> 00:03:45.120
  • MY FATHER COULDN'T GIVE ME.
  • 00:03:45.120 --> 00:03:46.170
  • SO I KEPT LOOKING
  • 00:03:46.170 --> 00:03:47.230
  • FOR SECURITY.
  • 00:03:47.230 --> 00:03:48.280
  • AND I MARRIED TED AT 18.
  • 00:03:48.280 --> 00:03:50.060
  • WE WERE MARRIED FOR 21 YEARS.
  • 00:03:50.060 --> 00:03:52.160
  • THEN THAT ENDED IN DIVORCE.
  • 00:03:52.160 --> 00:03:54.040
  • AND I QUICKLY
  • 00:03:54.040 --> 00:03:55.120
  • HAD A REBOUND MARRIAGE
  • 00:03:55.120 --> 00:03:56.240
  • AND HAD TO FLEE HIM, ACTUALLY.
  • 00:03:56.240 --> 00:03:59.120
  • I WAS AFRAID OF HIM.
  • 00:03:59.120 --> 00:04:00.240
  • THEN I MARRIED A MAN
  • 00:04:00.240 --> 00:04:02.030
  • I LOVE VERY MUCH.
  • 00:04:02.030 --> 00:04:03.180
  • WE WERE MARRIED FOR TEN YEARS
  • 00:04:03.180 --> 00:04:04.290
  • WHEN HE DECIDED TO LEAVE.
  • 00:04:04.290 --> 00:04:06.090
  • AND THEN MARRIED ANOTHER MAN.
  • 00:04:06.290 --> 00:04:09.290
  • James: YOU WERE LOOKING
  • 00:04:09.290 --> 00:04:11.060
  • FOR SOMETHING
  • 00:04:11.060 --> 00:04:12.140
  • YOU FELT WAS NEVER THERE.
  • 00:04:12.140 --> 00:04:14.010
  • Ruth: THAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:04:14.010 --> 00:04:15.040
  • I DON'T BLAME DADDY AT ALL.
  • 00:04:15.040 --> 00:04:16.100
  • THESE WERE MY CHOICES.
  • 00:04:16.100 --> 00:04:17.150
  • BUT I HAD TO FACE THE FACT.
  • 00:04:17.150 --> 00:04:19.240
  • LIKE I SAID,
  • 00:04:19.240 --> 00:04:21.190
  • THE PIECE FIT THE PUZZLE.
  • 00:04:21.190 --> 00:04:23.280
  • I WAS ABLE
  • 00:04:23.280 --> 00:04:25.050
  • TO THEN FORGIVE MYSELF
  • 00:04:25.050 --> 00:04:26.110
  • BECAUSE I REALIZED
  • 00:04:26.110 --> 00:04:27.140
  • THERE WAS A REASON.
  • 00:04:27.140 --> 00:04:28.290
  • SOMETIMES THERE ARE
  • 00:04:28.290 --> 00:04:30.000
  • NO EXCUSES,
  • 00:04:30.000 --> 00:04:31.030
  • BUT THERE ARE REASONS.
  • 00:04:31.030 --> 00:04:33.100
  • IT WAS VANCE HAVNER
  • 00:04:33.100 --> 00:04:34.140
  • WHO USED TO SAY, AN EXCUSE
  • 00:04:34.220 --> 00:04:37.220
  • IS THE SKIN OF A REASON
  • 00:04:37.220 --> 00:04:38.290
  • STUFFED WITH A LIE.
  • 00:04:38.290 --> 00:04:40.110
  • VANCE WAS A PRECIOUS FRIEND
  • 00:04:42.210 --> 00:04:45.210
  • AND HE WAS A GREAT ENCOURAGER.
  • 00:04:45.210 --> 00:04:47.050
  • HE MADE A GREAT WRITER.
  • 00:04:47.050 --> 00:04:48.100
  • HE WAS LIKE YOUR DADDY,
  • 00:04:48.100 --> 00:04:49.130
  • AS A YOUNG PREACHER.
  • 00:04:50.210 --> 00:04:53.210
  • YOU SEE,
  • 00:04:53.210 --> 00:04:55.060
  • I KNOW YOUR DAD FELT BAD,
  • 00:04:55.060 --> 00:04:56.080
  • BECAUSE WHEN I LOOK BACK -
  • 00:04:56.080 --> 00:04:57.230
  • I ACTUALLY TRAVELED
  • 00:04:57.230 --> 00:04:59.000
  • MORE THAN YOUR DAD
  • 00:04:59.000 --> 00:05:00.050
  • BECAUSE HE WOULD DO
  • 00:05:00.050 --> 00:05:01.110
  • A NUMBER OF CRUSADES A YEAR.
  • 00:05:01.110 --> 00:05:02.180
  • AND I WOULD DO
  • 00:05:02.180 --> 00:05:04.010
  • 30 TO 40 CRUSADES A YEAR
  • 00:05:04.010 --> 00:05:05.120
  • AND THEY WERE ALL
  • 00:05:05.120 --> 00:05:06.220
  • EIGHT-DAY CRUSADES.
  • 00:05:06.220 --> 00:05:07.270
  • THEY WEREN'T FIVE DAY.
  • 00:05:07.270 --> 00:05:09.050
  • THEY WEREN'T PART OF A WEEK.
  • 00:05:09.050 --> 00:05:10.090
  • IT WAS INSANITY.
  • 00:05:10.090 --> 00:05:11.120
  • I'LL BE HONEST WITH YOU,
  • 00:05:11.120 --> 00:05:12.160
  • IT WAS INSANITY.
  • 00:05:12.160 --> 00:05:13.190
  • IF YOU HAVE A GIFT
  • 00:05:13.190 --> 00:05:14.230
  • AND IT'S EFFECTIVE,
  • 00:05:14.230 --> 00:05:15.280
  • WELL THE SPIRIT OF THE WORLD
  • 00:05:15.280 --> 00:05:17.110
  • WILL PROGRAM YOU
  • 00:05:17.110 --> 00:05:18.160
  • BUT THE SPIRIT OF RELIGION,
  • 00:05:18.160 --> 00:05:19.220
  • THE SPIRIT OF THE CHURCH
  • 00:05:19.220 --> 00:05:21.000
  • WILL TOO.
  • 00:05:21.000 --> 00:05:22.040
  • BECAUSE THEY SEE THAT GIFT
  • 00:05:22.040 --> 00:05:23.090
  • AND IT HELPS THEM GROW
  • 00:05:23.090 --> 00:05:24.130
  • AND PEOPLE GET SAVED.
  • 00:05:24.130 --> 00:05:25.190
  • BUT THEY DON'T REALIZE
  • 00:05:25.190 --> 00:05:27.000
  • THAT YOU NEED A FAMILY TOO.
  • 00:05:27.000 --> 00:05:28.090
  • ROBERT MORRIS
  • 00:05:28.090 --> 00:05:29.130
  • IS GOING TO BE WITH US.
  • 00:05:29.130 --> 00:05:30.140
  • I THINK PROBABLY
  • 00:05:30.140 --> 00:05:31.200
  • IN ABOUT A WEEK
  • 00:05:31.200 --> 00:05:32.230
  • HE'S WRITTEN A BOOK,
  • 00:05:32.230 --> 00:05:33.260
  • TAKE A BREAK.
  • 00:05:33.260 --> 00:05:35.010
  • IT'S ON THE SABBATH REST.
  • 00:05:35.010 --> 00:05:36.070
  • MY FAILURE TO REST
  • 00:05:36.070 --> 00:05:37.220
  • NEARLY LED TO MY DESTRUCTION.
  • 00:05:37.220 --> 00:05:39.250
  • BUT I ALSO KNEW THAT
  • 00:05:39.250 --> 00:05:42.000
  • I HAD FAILED OUR CHILDREN,
  • 00:05:42.000 --> 00:05:44.030
  • BECAUSE I WAS MISSING.
  • 00:05:44.030 --> 00:05:45.100
  • AND I REALLY TRIED HARD
  • 00:05:45.100 --> 00:05:46.120
  • TO GET BACK TO DO THINGS.
  • 00:05:46.120 --> 00:05:48.180
  • AND YOU WERE AWESOME.
  • 00:05:48.180 --> 00:05:50.100
  • AND I'VE SAID TO YOU
  • 00:05:50.100 --> 00:05:51.160
  • MANY TIMES AND I REPEAT IT,
  • 00:05:51.160 --> 00:05:52.200
  • YOUR PRAYERS FOR OUR FAMILY,
  • 00:05:52.200 --> 00:05:53.260
  • THAT WERE SO FOCUSED
  • 00:05:53.260 --> 00:05:55.020
  • BECAUSE WE'RE SITTING HERE
  • 00:05:55.020 --> 00:05:56.090
  • TALKING TO YOU,
  • 00:05:56.090 --> 00:05:57.150
  • AND YOU REALLY DID PRAY,
  • 00:05:57.150 --> 00:05:58.200
  • BOY, OUR KIDS ARE A MIRACLE.
  • 00:05:58.200 --> 00:06:00.070
  • KIDS THERE -- FRANK,
  • 00:06:00.070 --> 00:06:02.110
  • I'M SURE, WAS A REBEL.
  • 00:06:02.110 --> 00:06:04.110
  • WITH A CAUSE, HE SAID.
  • 00:06:04.110 --> 00:06:06.100
  • BUT THE POINT IS THAT HE,
  • 00:06:06.100 --> 00:06:08.180
  • YOU HAD PLENTY OF TENSION
  • 00:06:08.180 --> 00:06:09.230
  • IN THE FAMILY.
  • 00:06:09.230 --> 00:06:10.280
  • THERE'S PLENTY OF THINGS
  • 00:06:10.280 --> 00:06:12.000
  • GOING ON THERE.
  • 00:06:12.000 --> 00:06:13.040
  • Ruth: WE WERE
  • 00:06:13.040 --> 00:06:14.060
  • A DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY,
  • 00:06:14.060 --> 00:06:15.110
  • LIKE EVERY FAMILY.
  • 00:06:15.110 --> 00:06:16.160
  • James: THAT'S EXACTLY
  • 00:06:16.160 --> 00:06:17.210
  • THE WORD; I THINK I KNOW IT
  • 00:06:17.210 --> 00:06:18.260
  • AS WELL AS ANYBODY BECAUSE
  • 00:06:18.260 --> 00:06:20.010
  • I LOVE THE WHOLE FAMILY.
  • 00:06:20.010 --> 00:06:21.060
  • YOU ALL KNOW THAT. RIGHT?
  • 00:06:21.060 --> 00:06:22.110
  • THERE'S NO QUESTION ABOUT IT.
  • 00:06:22.110 --> 00:06:23.160
  • BUT THE DEAL IS
  • 00:06:23.160 --> 00:06:24.210
  • THAT IT DID HURT.
  • 00:06:24.210 --> 00:06:27.060
  • DADDY KNEW IT.
  • 00:06:27.060 --> 00:06:29.180
  • WE BOTH REALIZED WE MISSED IT.
  • 00:06:29.180 --> 00:06:31.240
  • BILLY, I LOVE YOU SO MUCH.
  • 00:06:31.240 --> 00:06:33.280
  • AND I REALLY DO BELIEVE,
  • 00:06:33.280 --> 00:06:35.170
  • YOU'RE WITH
  • 00:06:35.170 --> 00:06:36.260
  • A CLOUD OF WITNESSES
  • 00:06:36.260 --> 00:06:37.260
  • GLIMPSING DOWN RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:06:37.260 --> 00:06:38.270
  • JUST LIKE YOU WATCHED ANNE
  • 00:06:38.270 --> 00:06:39.280
  • A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO
  • 00:06:39.280 --> 00:06:41.000
  • WHEN SHE WAS HERE,
  • 00:06:41.000 --> 00:06:42.010
  • AND SHE WAS JUST GLOWING.
  • 00:06:42.010 --> 00:06:43.020
  • YOU ARE TOO.
  • 00:06:43.020 --> 00:06:44.030
  • RUTH, YOU REALLY DO HAVE
  • 00:06:44.030 --> 00:06:45.050
  • JUST A BEAUTIFUL RADIANCE.
  • 00:06:45.050 --> 00:06:46.060
  • AND THAT IS THE LORD.
  • 00:06:46.060 --> 00:06:47.080
  • THAT'S THE BEAUTY OF GOD.
  • 00:06:47.080 --> 00:06:48.090
  • SO, BILLY, THIS GIRL -
  • 00:06:48.090 --> 00:06:49.120
  • ALL THE KIDS,
  • 00:06:49.120 --> 00:06:50.140
  • EVEN THE GRANDKIDS -
  • 00:06:50.140 --> 00:06:51.170
  • COMING ON STRONG.
  • 00:06:51.170 --> 00:06:52.210
  • OKAY,
  • 00:06:52.210 --> 00:06:53.250
  • YOU REALLY HAVE FORGIVEN.
  • 00:06:53.250 --> 00:06:54.260
  • HOW DID THAT FORGIVENESS
  • 00:06:54.260 --> 00:06:55.270
  • PLAY OUT?
  • 00:06:55.270 --> 00:06:57.030
  • IT SHOWED YOU
  • 00:06:57.030 --> 00:06:58.040
  • THE ADVERSE EFFECT THAT
  • 00:06:58.040 --> 00:06:59.100
  • THE LACK OF FORGIVENESS HAD.
  • 00:06:59.100 --> 00:07:00.220
  • WHAT HAPPENED
  • 00:07:00.220 --> 00:07:01.250
  • WHEN YOU REALIZED
  • 00:07:01.250 --> 00:07:03.000
  • THIS WAS WHAT WAS GOING ON
  • 00:07:03.000 --> 00:07:04.050
  • AND YOU FORGAVE DADDY?
  • 00:07:04.050 --> 00:07:05.080
  • WHAT HAPPENED INSIDE?
  • 00:07:05.080 --> 00:07:06.140
  • I CAME TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:07:07.220 --> 00:07:08.250
  • FORGIVENESS IS NOT
  • 00:07:08.250 --> 00:07:10.020
  • A LETTING GO.
  • 00:07:10.020 --> 00:07:11.120
  • IT'S NOT A JUST A WAY
  • 00:07:11.120 --> 00:07:13.060
  • IT'S NOT A GIFT I GIVE MYSELF.
  • 00:07:15.060 --> 00:07:17.150
  • JAMES, IT IS SO MUCH MORE
  • 00:07:17.150 --> 00:07:18.250
  • THAN THAT.
  • 00:07:18.250 --> 00:07:20.090
  • IT IS SACRED.
  • 00:07:20.090 --> 00:07:21.230
  • IT IS A SACRAMENT.
  • 00:07:21.230 --> 00:07:23.050
  • WHEN JESUS WAS BEING
  • 00:07:23.050 --> 00:07:24.130
  • NAILED TO THE CROSS
  • 00:07:24.130 --> 00:07:25.190
  • IS WHEN HE SAID,
  • 00:07:25.190 --> 00:07:26.260
  • FATHER, FORGIVE THEM.
  • 00:07:26.260 --> 00:07:28.020
  • HE WAS DYING FOR US.
  • 00:07:28.020 --> 00:07:30.100
  • THAT IS A SACRAMENT.
  • 00:07:30.100 --> 00:07:31.220
  • AND WE CAN ENTER
  • 00:07:31.220 --> 00:07:32.270
  • INTO THE VERY NATURE
  • 00:07:32.270 --> 00:07:34.000
  • AND CHARACTER OF GOD
  • 00:07:34.000 --> 00:07:35.020
  • WHEN WE FORGIVE.
  • 00:07:35.020 --> 00:07:36.090
  • THAT IS WHAT HE'S ALL ABOUT.
  • 00:07:36.090 --> 00:07:37.140
  • HIS HEART
  • 00:07:37.140 --> 00:07:38.200
  • IS ALL ABOUT FORGIVENESS.
  • 00:07:38.200 --> 00:07:39.290
  • James: ONE OF THE MIRACLES
  • 00:07:39.290 --> 00:07:41.030
  • IN MY LIFE IS -
  • 00:07:41.030 --> 00:07:42.070
  • BETTY, I KNOW YOU WANT
  • 00:07:42.070 --> 00:07:43.120
  • TO JUMP IN HERE -
  • 00:07:43.120 --> 00:07:44.180
  • ONE OF THE MIRACLES OF MY LIFE
  • 00:07:44.180 --> 00:07:45.260
  • IS I NEVER KNEW MY FATHER.
  • 00:07:45.260 --> 00:07:47.060
  • YOU KNOW, HE WAS A DRUNK.
  • 00:07:47.060 --> 00:07:48.120
  • AND THEN HE CAME BACK
  • 00:07:49.170 --> 00:07:50.190
  • AND TRIED TO KILL HER.
  • 00:07:50.190 --> 00:07:51.280
  • THEN I NEARLY KILLED HIM
  • 00:07:51.280 --> 00:07:53.030
  • IN SELF-DEFENSE.
  • 00:07:53.030 --> 00:07:54.070
  • YET I HELD HIM IN MY ARMS
  • 00:07:54.070 --> 00:07:55.080
  • I DON'T KNOW YOU.
  • 00:07:56.140 --> 00:07:57.170
  • BUT I LOVE YOU.
  • 00:07:57.170 --> 00:07:58.230
  • THIS IS SOMETHING I'VE SAID
  • 00:07:58.230 --> 00:07:59.250
  • AND IT'S A MIRACLE
  • 00:07:59.250 --> 00:08:00.290
  • AND I KNOW NOW
  • 00:08:00.290 --> 00:08:02.020
  • THAT'S WHERE YOU ARE
  • 00:08:02.020 --> 00:08:03.060
  • AT THIS MOMENT
  • 00:08:03.060 --> 00:08:04.100
  • AND WHERE YOU COME.
  • 00:08:04.100 --> 00:08:05.130
  • I CANNOT NOT FORGIVE.
  • 00:08:05.130 --> 00:08:06.160
  • THE FORGIVER LIVES
  • 00:08:06.160 --> 00:08:07.160
  • SO FULLY IN ME,
  • 00:08:07.160 --> 00:08:08.250
  • AND I MEAN THIS,
  • 00:08:08.250 --> 00:08:10.020
  • I'VE HAD PEOPLE
  • 00:08:10.020 --> 00:08:11.070
  • DO EVERYTHING THEY COULD
  • 00:08:11.070 --> 00:08:12.130
  • TO HURT ME.
  • 00:08:12.130 --> 00:08:13.240
  • SURE, THINGS HURT.
  • 00:08:13.240 --> 00:08:15.000
  • BUT I FORGIVE.
  • 00:08:15.000 --> 00:08:16.040
  • I CAN'T NOT.
  • 00:08:16.040 --> 00:08:17.110
  • THERE'S A FORGIVER IN ME.
  • 00:08:17.110 --> 00:08:18.170
  • ALL THE PEOPLE
  • 00:08:18.170 --> 00:08:19.210
  • THAT LOOK LIKE THEY'RE JUST
  • 00:08:19.210 --> 00:08:20.220
  • OFF THE CHARTS WACKY
  • 00:08:20.220 --> 00:08:21.220
  • AND THEY'RE JUST GRIPING
  • 00:08:21.220 --> 00:08:22.250
  • ABOUT EVERYTHING...
  • 00:08:22.250 --> 00:08:23.280
  • I'M JUST SAYING,
  • 00:08:23.280 --> 00:08:25.010
  • GOD, THEY DON'T KNOW THAT
  • 00:08:25.010 --> 00:08:26.040
  • THEY'RE HURTING THEMSELVES.
  • 00:08:26.040 --> 00:08:27.070
  • AND I'M HURTING FOR YOU.
  • 00:08:27.070 --> 00:08:28.100
  • IF WE GO THE DIRECTION
  • 00:08:28.100 --> 00:08:29.150
  • SOME OF YOU WANT US TO GO,
  • 00:08:29.150 --> 00:08:30.190
  • WE'RE ALL IN TROUBLE!
  • 00:08:30.190 --> 00:08:31.240
  • YOU'RE DIGGING YOUR OWN PIT.
  • 00:08:31.240 --> 00:08:32.290
  • YOU'RE DIGGING YOUR OWN DITCH.
  • 00:08:32.290 --> 00:08:34.040
  • YOU'RE DIGGING YOUR OWN GRAVE
  • 00:08:34.040 --> 00:08:35.140
  • AND IT'S BREAKING MY HEART.
  • 00:08:35.140 --> 00:08:36.240
  • I JUST WISH WE COULD SIT DOWN
  • 00:08:36.240 --> 00:08:37.290
  • AND TALK TO YOU.
  • 00:08:37.290 --> 00:08:39.050
  • BECAUSE EVEN THOUGH
  • 00:08:39.050 --> 00:08:40.090
  • I'M CONVINCED IT'S WRONG,
  • 00:08:40.090 --> 00:08:41.140
  • THERE'S A FORGIVENESS.
  • 00:08:41.140 --> 00:08:42.140
  • SO AS YOU FORGAVE,
  • 00:08:42.140 --> 00:08:45.040
  • DID YOU SENSE
  • 00:08:45.040 --> 00:08:46.080
  • SOMETHING RELEASE INSIDE?
  • 00:08:46.080 --> 00:08:47.200
  • Ruth: JAMES,
  • 00:08:47.200 --> 00:08:48.220
  • IT DOESN'T HAPPEN ALL AT ONCE.
  • 00:08:48.220 --> 00:08:49.270
  • IT'S A LIFETIME PROCESS.
  • 00:08:50.130 --> 00:08:53.130
  • IT TOOK A WHILE
  • 00:08:53.130 --> 00:08:54.240
  • FOR IT TO PLAY ITSELF OUT.
  • 00:08:55.160 --> 00:08:58.160
  • I CAN'T TELL YOU
  • 00:08:58.160 --> 00:09:00.090
  • HOW IT HAPPENED,
  • 00:09:00.090 --> 00:09:01.170
  • OR WHEN IT HAPPENED.
  • 00:09:01.170 --> 00:09:02.260
  • BUT I CAN TELL YOU
  • 00:09:02.260 --> 00:09:03.290
  • THAT IT DID HAPPEN.
  • 00:09:03.290 --> 00:09:04.290
  • AND I KNOW FOR MYSELF -
  • 00:09:04.290 --> 00:09:07.180
  • NOT TOO LONG AGO
  • 00:09:07.180 --> 00:09:08.280
  • I WAS IN SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS.
  • 00:09:08.280 --> 00:09:10.030
  • WE WERE STUDYING
  • 00:09:10.030 --> 00:09:11.270
  • FIRST CORINTHIANS
  • 00:09:11.270 --> 00:09:13.030
  • AND WE'RE COMPARING
  • 00:09:13.030 --> 00:09:14.090
  • THE CORINTHIAN CULTURE
  • 00:09:14.090 --> 00:09:15.150
  • WITH OUR CULTURE.
  • 00:09:15.150 --> 00:09:16.190
  • AND THE SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER
  • 00:09:16.190 --> 00:09:18.000
  • ASKED, WHEN DID WE BEGIN
  • 00:09:18.000 --> 00:09:19.180
  • THIS DOWNWARD SLIDE
  • 00:09:19.180 --> 00:09:20.290
  • IN AMERICA?
  • 00:09:20.290 --> 00:09:22.090
  • AND SOMEBODY IN THE BACK SAID,
  • 00:09:22.090 --> 00:09:23.160
  • WELL, WHEN WE STARTED
  • 00:09:23.160 --> 00:09:24.260
  • ACCEPTING DIVORCE.
  • 00:09:24.260 --> 00:09:26.000
  • THAT WENT IN ONE EAR
  • 00:09:26.000 --> 00:09:27.030
  • AND OUT THE OTHER.
  • 00:09:27.030 --> 00:09:28.050
  • NORMALLY, I WOULD HAVE --
  • 00:09:28.050 --> 00:09:29.090
  • [Laughing]
  • 00:09:30.190 --> 00:09:32.180
  • BUT IT DIDN'T PHASE ME.
  • 00:09:32.180 --> 00:09:35.100
  • AND AFTER SUNDAY SCHOOL CLASS
  • 00:09:35.100 --> 00:09:36.250
  • ASIDE AND SAID,
  • 00:09:38.230 --> 00:09:39.250
  • OH, RUTH! I'M SO SORRY!
  • 00:09:39.250 --> 00:09:40.270
  • I MEANT TO SAY EASY DIVORCE.
  • 00:09:40.270 --> 00:09:43.200
  • AND I REALIZED
  • 00:09:43.200 --> 00:09:44.280
  • AT THAT MOMENT, JAMES,
  • 00:09:44.280 --> 00:09:46.030
  • I WAS LIVING IN ROMANS 8:1.
  • 00:09:46.030 --> 00:09:48.070
  • THERE IS NOW THEREFORE
  • 00:09:48.070 --> 00:09:49.160
  • NO CONDEMNATION TO THOSE
  • 00:09:49.160 --> 00:09:51.080
  • WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.
  • 00:09:51.080 --> 00:09:52.180
  • NORMALLY,
  • 00:09:52.180 --> 00:09:53.260
  • I WOULD HAVE CONDEMNED MYSELF
  • 00:09:53.260 --> 00:09:55.000
  • AROUND THE BLOCK
  • 00:09:55.000 --> 00:09:56.010
  • AND BACK AGAIN.
  • 00:09:56.010 --> 00:09:57.030
  • BUT NO LONGER!
  • 00:09:57.030 --> 00:09:58.090
  • I LIVE IN THE FREEDOM
  • 00:09:58.090 --> 00:09:59.120
  • OF FORGIVENESS.
  • 00:09:59.120 --> 00:10:00.280
  • Betty: DON'T YOU THINK
  • 00:10:00.280 --> 00:10:02.100
  • FORGIVENESS IS SOMETHING
  • 00:10:02.100 --> 00:10:03.150
  • WE HAVE TO WALK IN EVERYDAY?
  • 00:10:03.150 --> 00:10:04.230
  • Ruth: ABSOLUTELY!
  • 00:10:04.230 --> 00:10:06.030
  • Betty: BECAUSE I LOOK AT IT
  • 00:10:06.030 --> 00:10:07.170
  • AND I THINK, AND HOW
  • 00:10:07.170 --> 00:10:08.280
  • CAN WE NOT FORGIVE SOMEONE
  • 00:10:08.280 --> 00:10:11.250
  • OR SOMETHING THAT'S HAPPENED,
  • 00:10:11.250 --> 00:10:13.060
  • SOMETHING WHEN WE WERE WRONGED
  • 00:10:13.060 --> 00:10:15.090
  • OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
  • 00:10:15.090 --> 00:10:16.210
  • AND I HAVE TO JUST LOOK BACK
  • 00:10:16.210 --> 00:10:18.010
  • TO THAT TIME
  • 00:10:18.010 --> 00:10:19.110
  • WHEN I ACCEPTED JESUS.
  • 00:10:19.110 --> 00:10:20.180
  • HE FORGAVE EVERYTHING
  • 00:10:20.180 --> 00:10:21.260
  • ABOUT ME.
  • 00:10:21.260 --> 00:10:23.070
  • HE SAID, BE MINE FOREVER!
  • 00:10:23.070 --> 00:10:26.030
  • SO, HOW CAN I -- ?
  • 00:10:26.030 --> 00:10:27.160
  • WHEN WE'VE GOT A GOD
  • 00:10:27.160 --> 00:10:29.050
  • THAT FORGIVES LIKE THAT,
  • 00:10:29.050 --> 00:10:30.200
  • HOW CAN WE NOT HAVE
  • 00:10:30.200 --> 00:10:32.020
  • A FORGIVING HEART?
  • 00:10:32.020 --> 00:10:33.120
  • Ruth: HE DIED FOR US
  • 00:10:33.120 --> 00:10:34.190
  • WHILE WE WERE YET SINNERS.
  • 00:10:34.190 --> 00:10:35.260
  • IN OUR MESS,
  • 00:10:35.260 --> 00:10:37.070
  • THAT'S WHEN HE DIED FOR US.
  • 00:10:37.070 --> 00:10:38.200
  • James: DOES IT MEAN
  • 00:10:38.200 --> 00:10:39.250
  • THAT IF YOU FORGIVE
  • 00:10:39.250 --> 00:10:41.010
  • Ruth: NO!
  • 00:10:42.060 --> 00:10:43.160
  • ONLY GOD CHOOSES TO FORGET.
  • 00:10:43.160 --> 00:10:44.240
  • I THINK THAT
  • 00:10:44.240 --> 00:10:46.070
  • WE NEED TO FORGIVE.
  • 00:10:49.000 --> 00:10:52.000
  • James: AND HE DOES
  • 00:10:52.000 --> 00:10:53.190
  • TAKE IT AWAY AS FAR
  • 00:10:53.190 --> 00:10:55.010
  • AS THE EAST IS FROM THE WEST.
  • 00:10:55.010 --> 00:10:56.190
  • NO QUESTION - HE COVERS IT.
  • 00:10:56.190 --> 00:10:58.060
  • YOU KNOW, SOMEBODY SAYS,
  • 00:10:58.060 --> 00:10:59.190
  • IS THERE ANYTHING
  • 00:10:59.190 --> 00:11:01.070
  • GOD CAN'T DO?
  • 00:11:01.070 --> 00:11:02.190
  • AND SOMEONE SAID,
  • 00:11:02.190 --> 00:11:03.290
  • I THINK THAT HE CAN'T SEE
  • 00:11:03.290 --> 00:11:05.110
  • WHAT HE COVERED,
  • 00:11:05.110 --> 00:11:06.290
  • WHAT HE FORGAVE.
  • 00:11:06.290 --> 00:11:08.060
  • AND THAT REALLY DOESN'T
  • 00:11:08.060 --> 00:11:09.150
  • SEEM UNSCRIPTURAL
  • 00:11:09.150 --> 00:11:10.210
  • OR EVEN UNSUPERNATURAL.
  • 00:11:10.210 --> 00:11:11.260
  • IT SEEMS LIKE
  • 00:11:11.260 --> 00:11:13.020
  • THE WAY GOD WOULD BE.
  • 00:11:13.020 --> 00:11:14.110
  • TO THE AVERAGE PERSON,
  • 00:11:15.180 --> 00:11:17.050
  • THAT MAYBE THEY DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:11:17.050 --> 00:11:18.140
  • A DIVORCE.
  • 00:11:18.140 --> 00:11:19.290
  • WHERE DO YOU SEE PEOPLE
  • 00:11:19.290 --> 00:11:21.110
  • OF BEING UNABLE TO FORGIVE?
  • 00:11:22.240 --> 00:11:25.120
  • WHAT DO YOU THINK ARE
  • 00:11:25.120 --> 00:11:26.230
  • SOME OF THOSE STICKING POINTS
  • 00:11:26.230 --> 00:11:28.040
  • THAT KEEP THEM BACK?
  • 00:11:28.040 --> 00:11:29.150
  • YOU'VE TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:11:29.150 --> 00:11:30.230
  • YOUR OWN SITUATION.
  • 00:11:30.230 --> 00:11:31.260
  • YOU'VE TALKED YOUR DAD.
  • 00:11:31.260 --> 00:11:32.290
  • BUT WHAT DO YOU SEE
  • 00:11:32.290 --> 00:11:34.030
  • HOLDING PEOPLE BACK?
  • 00:11:34.030 --> 00:11:35.100
  • Ruth: I THINK
  • 00:11:35.100 --> 00:11:36.190
  • WE DON'T FORGIVE OURSELVES
  • 00:11:36.190 --> 00:11:38.290
  • AND WE GET STUCK THERE.
  • 00:11:38.290 --> 00:11:40.230
  • AND WE THINK
  • 00:11:40.230 --> 00:11:42.030
  • THAT GOD'S MAD AT US.
  • 00:11:42.030 --> 00:11:43.060
  • AND WE DON'T SEE
  • 00:11:43.060 --> 00:11:44.150
  • THE LOVING NATURE OF GOD.
  • 00:11:44.150 --> 00:11:47.110
  • JOYCE MEYER HAD THAT BOOK,
  • 00:11:47.110 --> 00:11:48.190
  • GOD'S NOT MAD AT YOU.
  • 00:11:48.190 --> 00:11:49.280
  • I THOUGHT
  • 00:11:49.280 --> 00:11:51.050
  • THAT WAS A GREAT TITLE
  • 00:11:51.050 --> 00:11:52.090
  • BECAUSE I THINK
  • 00:11:52.090 --> 00:11:53.130
  • A LOT OF PEOPLE,
  • 00:11:53.130 --> 00:11:54.150
  • ESPECIALLY EVANGELICALS,
  • 00:11:54.150 --> 00:11:55.180
  • TEND TO THINK
  • 00:11:55.180 --> 00:11:56.210
  • THAT GOD'S MAD AT US
  • 00:11:56.210 --> 00:11:57.220
  • AND HE'S JUST WAITING
  • 00:11:57.220 --> 00:11:58.220
  • FOR US TO DO SOMETHING WRONG
  • 00:11:58.220 --> 00:11:59.270
  • SO HE CAN WHACK US.
  • 00:11:59.270 --> 00:12:01.050
  • THAT'S NOT AT ALL THE CASE.
  • 00:12:01.050 --> 00:12:02.090
  • HE HURTS WITH US.
  • 00:12:02.090 --> 00:12:03.130
  • WHEN WE SUFFER
  • 00:12:03.130 --> 00:12:04.160
  • THE CONSEQUENCES OF OUR SIN,
  • 00:12:04.160 --> 00:12:05.200
  • IT'S NOT A PUNISHMENT FOR US.
  • 00:12:05.200 --> 00:12:07.130
  • HE IS HURTING WITH US
  • 00:12:07.130 --> 00:12:09.140
  • AND HE WANTS TO COME
  • 00:12:09.140 --> 00:12:10.180
  • ALONGSIDE OF US AND LOVE US.
  • 00:12:10.180 --> 00:12:12.030
  • I DON'T THINK WE REALIZE
  • 00:12:12.030 --> 00:12:13.100
  • HOW MUCH HE LOVES US.
  • 00:12:13.100 --> 00:12:15.070
  • I DON'T THINK THERE'S ANY WAY
  • 00:12:15.070 --> 00:12:16.100
  • FOR US TO KNOW
  • 00:12:16.100 --> 00:12:17.190
  • HOW MUCH HE LOVES US.
  • 00:12:17.190 --> 00:12:18.220
  • James: HOW MUCH
  • 00:12:18.220 --> 00:12:19.260
  • HE IS FOCUSED ON US.
  • 00:12:19.260 --> 00:12:21.010
  • Betty: HOW DO WE
  • 00:12:21.010 --> 00:12:22.020
  • FORGIVE OURSELVES?
  • 00:12:22.020 --> 00:12:23.070
  • HOW WOULD YOU SAY THAT?
  • 00:12:23.070 --> 00:12:24.100
  • Ruth: I THINK
  • 00:12:24.100 --> 00:12:25.170
  • YOU MAKE THE CHOICE
  • 00:12:25.170 --> 00:12:26.220
  • TO FORGIVE YOURSELF,
  • 00:12:26.220 --> 00:12:27.290
  • LIKE YOU WOULD SOMEBODY ELSE.
  • 00:12:27.290 --> 00:12:29.060
  • AND THEN RENEW YOUR MIND
  • 00:12:29.060 --> 00:12:30.110
  • WITH THE SCRIPTURES.
  • 00:12:30.110 --> 00:12:31.160
  • BECAUSE THAT'S THE ONLY TRUTH
  • 00:12:31.160 --> 00:12:32.250
  • WE HAVE.
  • 00:12:32.250 --> 00:12:34.010
  • James: I REALLY DO BELIEVE
  • 00:12:34.010 --> 00:12:35.090
  • THERE'S HEALING IN DOING THAT,
  • 00:12:35.090 --> 00:12:36.170
  • GOING THROUGH IT.
  • 00:12:36.170 --> 00:12:37.250
  • AS YOU WROTE THE BOOK,
  • 00:12:37.250 --> 00:12:39.020
  • AND YOU WERE JUST
  • 00:12:39.020 --> 00:12:40.100
  • GOING THROUGH THE SCRIPTURES
  • 00:12:40.100 --> 00:12:41.210
  • AND YOU HAD TO BE
  • 00:12:41.210 --> 00:12:44.180
  • HAVING A HOPE THAT GOD
  • 00:12:44.180 --> 00:12:46.250
  • WOULD DO SOMETHING SPECIAL
  • 00:12:46.250 --> 00:12:48.270
  • WITH THE BOOK.
  • 00:12:48.270 --> 00:12:50.040
  • SO AS THE BOOK GOES OUT,
  • 00:12:50.040 --> 00:12:51.130
  • DO YOU THINK IT'S GOING
  • 00:12:51.130 --> 00:12:52.200
  • TO LEAD A LOT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:12:52.200 --> 00:12:54.200
  • WHO WOULD THINK, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:12:54.200 --> 00:12:56.000
  • YOU WOULDN'T HAVE NEEDED
  • 00:12:56.000 --> 00:12:57.100
  • TO HAVE FORGIVEN
  • 00:12:57.100 --> 00:12:58.190
  • THIS GREAT PREACHER,
  • 00:12:58.190 --> 00:12:59.230
  • TO STOP AND LOOK
  • 00:12:59.230 --> 00:13:01.000
  • AT THEIR OWN RESENTMENT
  • 00:13:01.000 --> 00:13:02.070
  • IN THEIR FAMILY
  • 00:13:02.070 --> 00:13:03.140
  • OR IN SOMEPLACE
  • 00:13:03.140 --> 00:13:04.210
  • THAT'S PRETTY HIDDEN
  • 00:13:04.210 --> 00:13:05.260
  • AND THEY DIDN'T REALIZE
  • 00:13:05.260 --> 00:13:07.030
  • IT WAS THERE.
  • 00:13:07.030 --> 00:13:08.080
  • OR THAT IN ITSELF,
  • 00:13:08.080 --> 00:13:09.120
  • THE VERY THOUGHT
  • 00:13:09.120 --> 00:13:10.180
  • THAT IT MIGHT BE THERE
  • 00:13:10.180 --> 00:13:11.270
  • WOULD MAKE THEM EVEN
  • 00:13:11.270 --> 00:13:13.020
  • CONDEMN THEMSELVES EVEN WORSE.
  • 00:13:13.020 --> 00:13:14.080
  • HOW DO YOU FEEL LIKE THE BOOK
  • 00:13:14.080 --> 00:13:15.130
  • IS GOING TO COME DOWN
  • 00:13:15.130 --> 00:13:16.190
  • IN THE AVERAGE HANDS?
  • 00:13:16.190 --> 00:13:17.250
  • WHAT ARE YOU PRAYING FOR?
  • 00:13:17.250 --> 00:13:19.020
  • Ruth: I HOPE THAT PEOPLE
  • 00:13:19.020 --> 00:13:20.130
  • WILL PICK IT UP AND WONDER -
  • 00:13:20.130 --> 00:13:22.180
  • IT MIGHT BE CURIOSITY.
  • 00:13:22.180 --> 00:13:24.160
  • AND THIS IS NOT
  • 00:13:24.160 --> 00:13:25.230
  • A TELL-ALL BOOK BY ANY
  • 00:13:25.230 --> 00:13:27.020
  • STRETCH OF THE IMAGINATION
  • 00:13:27.020 --> 00:13:28.090
  • BECAUSE I ADORED MY FATHER.
  • 00:13:28.090 --> 00:13:29.150
  • BUT I HOPE
  • 00:13:29.150 --> 00:13:30.230
  • THEY WILL PICK IT UP
  • 00:13:30.230 --> 00:13:32.000
  • OUT OF CURIOSITY AND THEN
  • 00:13:32.000 --> 00:13:33.110
  • GOD WILL HAVE SOMETHING
  • 00:13:33.110 --> 00:13:34.150
  • THERE FOR THEM,
  • 00:13:34.150 --> 00:13:35.170
  • THAT HE WILL MEET THEM
  • 00:13:35.170 --> 00:13:36.190
  • IN THE PAGES OF THAT BOOK.
  • 00:13:36.190 --> 00:13:37.210
  • THERE'S SOME NEED
  • 00:13:37.210 --> 00:13:38.270
  • IN EVERYBODY'S LIFE.
  • 00:13:38.270 --> 00:13:40.040
  • WE ALL HAVE AREAS
  • 00:13:40.040 --> 00:13:41.140
  • THAT WE NEED FORGIVING
  • 00:13:41.140 --> 00:13:42.210
  • OR ASKING FOR FORGIVENESS.
  • 00:13:42.210 --> 00:13:44.050
  • JUST THE SIMPLE FACT
  • 00:13:44.050 --> 00:13:45.170
  • OF ASKING FOR FORGIVENESS
  • 00:13:45.170 --> 00:13:47.010
  • CAN BE SO DIFFICULT.
  • 00:13:47.010 --> 00:13:49.160
  • AND OVER AGAIN MYSELF.
  • 00:13:50.240 --> 00:13:52.190
  • I HAD TO ASK
  • 00:13:52.190 --> 00:13:53.260
  • MY CHILDREN'S FORGIVENESS.
  • 00:13:53.260 --> 00:13:55.200
  • I CAN REMEMBER
  • 00:13:55.200 --> 00:13:56.210
  • ONE EASTER AFTERNOON.
  • 00:13:56.210 --> 00:13:58.020
  • IN THE BACKYARD OVERLOOKING
  • 00:13:59.070 --> 00:14:00.150
  • THE BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAINS
  • 00:14:00.150 --> 00:14:01.210
  • AND I TOLD THEM,
  • 00:14:01.210 --> 00:14:02.270
  • I SAID, KIDS,
  • 00:14:02.270 --> 00:14:04.030
  • I NEED TO SPEAK TO YOU ALL.
  • 00:14:04.030 --> 00:14:05.090
  • AND I SAID,
  • 00:14:05.090 --> 00:14:06.170
  • I'VE GOT SOMETHING IMPORTANT.
  • 00:14:06.170 --> 00:14:07.200
  • THE KIDS CAN GO PLAY
  • 00:14:07.200 --> 00:14:08.270
  • IN THE BACKYARD.
  • 00:14:08.270 --> 00:14:10.030
  • AND THEY BLANCHED.
  • 00:14:10.030 --> 00:14:11.050
  • THEY THOUGH, OH, MOM'S SICK.
  • 00:14:11.050 --> 00:14:12.080
  • OR SOMETHING TERRIBLE
  • 00:14:12.080 --> 00:14:13.130
  • HAS HAPPENED.
  • 00:14:13.130 --> 00:14:14.220
  • AND I SAID, NO, I NEED
  • 00:14:14.220 --> 00:14:15.280
  • TO ASK YOUR FORGIVENESS.
  • 00:14:15.280 --> 00:14:17.050
  • OH, MOM!
  • 00:14:17.050 --> 00:14:18.080
  • YOU DON'T NEED TO ASK
  • 00:14:18.080 --> 00:14:19.150
  • OUR FORGIVENESS!
  • 00:14:19.150 --> 00:14:20.150
  • AND I SAID, NO!
  • 00:14:20.150 --> 00:14:21.220
  • I LOOKED EACH ONE OF THEM
  • 00:14:21.220 --> 00:14:22.260
  • IN THE EYE AND I SAID,
  • 00:14:22.260 --> 00:14:23.280
  • I WANT YOU TO FORGIVE ME.
  • 00:14:23.280 --> 00:14:25.020
  • EACH ONE SAID,
  • 00:14:25.020 --> 00:14:26.070
  • I FORGIVE YOU.
  • 00:14:26.070 --> 00:14:27.110
  • DO YOU KNOW
  • 00:14:27.110 --> 00:14:28.190
  • HOW FREEING THAT IS?
  • 00:14:28.190 --> 00:14:29.250
  • James: AND YOU KNEW
  • 00:14:29.250 --> 00:14:30.290
  • IN YOUR HEART THEY THOUGHT
  • 00:14:30.290 --> 00:14:32.000
  • YOU HAD FAILED IN SOME WAYS
  • 00:14:32.000 --> 00:14:33.020
  • THAT YOU -
  • 00:14:33.020 --> 00:14:34.050
  • Ruth: I HAD!
  • 00:14:34.050 --> 00:14:35.090
  • James: THERE WASN'T
  • 00:14:35.090 --> 00:14:36.100
  • ANY QUESTION ABOUT IT.
  • 00:14:36.100 --> 00:14:37.140
  • YOU I PUT RIGHT UP FRONT.
  • 00:14:37.140 --> 00:14:38.190
  • MOST PEOPLE DON'T EVEN KNOW
  • 00:14:38.190 --> 00:14:39.240
  • YOU WENT THROUGH THOSE DEALS
  • 00:14:39.240 --> 00:14:41.000
  • AND I WATCHED YOU.
  • 00:14:41.000 --> 00:14:42.030
  • IT WAS LIKE SOMEBODY
  • 00:14:42.030 --> 00:14:43.060
  • BOUNCING OFF A WALL
  • 00:14:43.060 --> 00:14:44.060
  • AND INTO A TRUCK.
  • 00:14:44.060 --> 00:14:45.120
  • IT WASN'T GOOD.
  • 00:14:45.120 --> 00:14:46.210
  • AND YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:14:46.210 --> 00:14:47.220
  • IT DIDN'T MATTER HOW MUCH LOVE
  • 00:14:47.220 --> 00:14:48.270
  • WE POURED AT YOU
  • 00:14:48.270 --> 00:14:50.030
  • IN THOSE MOMENTS,
  • 00:14:50.030 --> 00:14:51.060
  • AND YOU DIDN'T NEED
  • 00:14:51.060 --> 00:14:52.110
  • MY FINGER IN YOUR FACE,
  • 00:14:52.110 --> 00:14:53.140
  • YOU NEEDED US PRAYING FOR YOU
  • 00:14:53.140 --> 00:14:54.230
  • AND LOVING YOU.
  • 00:14:54.230 --> 00:14:55.280
  • AND WE WATCHED THE JOURNEY
  • 00:14:55.280 --> 00:14:57.070
  • AND WE MARVELED AT IT, RUTH.
  • 00:14:57.070 --> 00:14:58.140
  • YOU ARE -
  • 00:14:58.140 --> 00:14:59.220
  • I'M TELLING YOU,
  • 00:14:59.220 --> 00:15:01.020
  • YOU'RE JUST A -
  • 00:15:01.020 --> 00:15:02.070
  • YOU'RE A GIFT FROM GOD TODAY.
  • 00:15:02.070 --> 00:15:03.200
  • I WANT ALL OF YOU TO JOIN US
  • 00:15:03.200 --> 00:15:05.270
  • IN PRAYING FOR RUTH.
  • 00:15:05.270 --> 00:15:07.140
  • SHE'S HAD SOME VERY
  • 00:15:07.140 --> 00:15:08.220
  • SERIOUS BACK PROBLEMS.
  • 00:15:08.220 --> 00:15:10.110
  • AND SHE'S HAD SURGERY
  • 00:15:10.110 --> 00:15:11.280
  • THAT IN MANY WAYS
  • 00:15:11.280 --> 00:15:13.100
  • LOOKED LIKE IT COMPLICATED IT.
  • 00:15:13.100 --> 00:15:16.060
  • SHE'S JUST NOT READY
  • 00:15:16.060 --> 00:15:17.150
  • FOR THAT AGAIN
  • 00:15:17.150 --> 00:15:18.170
  • AND SHE REALLY NEEDS
  • 00:15:18.170 --> 00:15:19.240
  • A TOUCH OF GOD.
  • 00:15:19.240 --> 00:15:21.000
  • I WANT YOU TO JOIN
  • 00:15:21.000 --> 00:15:22.080
  • BETTY AND ME RIGHT NOW

  • AND THEN I WANT YOU
  • 00:15:23.160 --> 00:15:24.210
  • TO JUST KEEP PRAYING FOR HER.
  • 00:15:24.210 --> 00:15:26.000
  • GOD, WOULD YOU JUST REACH DOWN
  • 00:15:26.200 --> 00:15:29.200
  • AND TOUCH THOSE JOINTS
  • 00:15:29.200 --> 00:15:31.180
  • THAT YOU MADE
  • 00:15:31.180 --> 00:15:33.120
  • AND SUPERNATURALLY CORRECT
  • 00:15:33.160 --> 00:15:36.160
  • AND HEAL, I MEAN TOTALLY.
  • 00:15:37.070 --> 00:15:40.070
  • IN JESUS' NAME.
  • 00:15:40.070 --> 00:15:41.200
  • NOW LOOK AT ME RIGHT HERE,
  • 00:15:41.200 --> 00:15:42.280
  • ALL OF YOU AT HOME.
  • 00:15:42.280 --> 00:15:44.220
  • I JUST HAPPENED TO TURN ON
  • 00:15:44.220 --> 00:15:47.010
  • BELIEVER'S VOICE OF VICTORY.
  • 00:15:47.250 --> 00:15:50.250
  • KEN, LISTEN TO ME.
  • 00:15:50.250 --> 00:15:53.100
  • I LISTENED TO A WOMAN
  • 00:15:53.100 --> 00:15:55.260
  • IN FAR WORSE SHAPE THAN RUTH.
  • 00:15:56.020 --> 00:15:59.020
  • I MEAN, INDESCRIBABLE.
  • 00:15:59.020 --> 00:16:00.190
  • I SAW THE X-RAYS
  • 00:16:00.190 --> 00:16:03.030
  • AND I SAW THE HOPELESSNESS.
  • 00:16:03.070 --> 00:16:06.070
  • AND SOMEHOW YOU SPOKE TO HER
  • 00:16:06.070 --> 00:16:08.180
  • AND SHE PRAYED FOR HEALING,
  • 00:16:11.010 --> 00:16:12.280
  • THAT YOU SAID
  • 00:16:12.280 --> 00:16:14.130
  • GOD HEALS MIRACULOUSLY.
  • 00:16:14.130 --> 00:16:16.060
  • A WOMAN TOTALLY CHANGED
  • 00:16:19.000 --> 00:16:22.000
  • AND I SAW WHERE GOD
  • 00:16:22.020 --> 00:16:25.020
  • PUT IN HER BACK
  • 00:16:25.020 --> 00:16:26.200
  • A REBUILT PERFECT JOINT
  • 00:16:26.200 --> 00:16:28.080
  • WHERE THERE WASN'T ONE.
  • 00:16:28.080 --> 00:16:29.260
  • AND I SAW IT ON THE X-RAYS.
  • 00:16:29.260 --> 00:16:31.060
  • AND I SAW THE AMAZEMENT
  • 00:16:31.060 --> 00:16:32.140
  • OF THE DOCTORS.
  • 00:16:32.140 --> 00:16:33.180
  • YOU SAY, WHY DO YOU TELL THAT?
  • 00:16:33.180 --> 00:16:34.250
  • BECAUSE I WISH WE WOULD
  • 00:16:34.250 --> 00:16:36.120
  • QUIT TRYING TO FIND FAULT
  • 00:16:36.120 --> 00:16:38.090
  • WITH ONE ANOTHER
  • 00:16:38.090 --> 00:16:39.240
  • AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
  • 00:16:39.240 --> 00:16:41.040
  • KEN, THANK YOU FOR THAT!
  • 00:16:41.040 --> 00:16:42.140
  • AND I TELL THAT
  • 00:16:42.140 --> 00:16:43.260
  • BECAUSE I WANT THAT FOR RUTH.
  • 00:16:43.260 --> 00:16:46.060
  • I WANT RUTH TO EXPERIENCE
  • 00:16:46.060 --> 00:16:47.230
  • SUCH A HEALING
  • 00:16:47.230 --> 00:16:49.220
  • THAT THE DOCTORS ARE AMAZED.
  • 00:16:49.220 --> 00:16:52.110
  • LISTEN,
  • 00:16:52.110 --> 00:16:53.230
  • OUR GOD DOES STILL HEAL.
  • 00:16:53.230 --> 00:16:55.000
  • LET ME TELL YOU THIS:
  • 00:16:55.000 --> 00:16:56.090
  • WE LOST A DAUGHTER TO CANCER
  • 00:16:56.090 --> 00:16:57.170
  • THAT BELIEVED IN HEALING
  • 00:16:57.170 --> 00:16:58.280
  • MORE THAN ANY HEALING PREACHER
  • 00:16:58.280 --> 00:17:00.130
  • OR PERSON YOU'VE EVER MET.
  • 00:17:00.210 --> 00:17:03.210
  • AND I SAW THE DISMAY WHEN
  • 00:17:03.210 --> 00:17:05.230
  • SHE KNEW, "I'M LEAVING, DAD.
  • 00:17:05.280 --> 00:17:08.280
  • I DIDN'T THINK
  • 00:17:08.280 --> 00:17:10.110
  • IT WOULD BE THIS WAY."
  • 00:17:10.110 --> 00:17:11.210
  • BUT GOD DIDN'T FAIL.
  • 00:17:11.210 --> 00:17:13.100
  • HER FAITH DIDN'T FAIL.
  • 00:17:13.100 --> 00:17:15.220
  • AND THE GOD THAT DOESN'T
  • 00:17:15.220 --> 00:17:17.110
  • ALWAYS HEAL WHAT WE ASK,
  • 00:17:17.110 --> 00:17:20.020
  • HEALS A BROKEN HEART.
  • 00:17:20.020 --> 00:17:22.070
  • THIS PRECIOUS SISTER OF OURS,
  • 00:17:22.070 --> 00:17:24.270
  • FAMILY, IS TRYING TO HEAL
  • 00:17:25.230 --> 00:17:28.230
  • DAMAGED HEARTS.
  • 00:17:28.230 --> 00:17:31.040
  • I DON'T KNOW, RUTH, ANYBODY
  • 00:17:31.040 --> 00:17:33.110
  • BEING ANYMORE HONEST
  • 00:17:33.110 --> 00:17:35.250
  • IN TRYING TO GET PEOPLE
  • 00:17:35.250 --> 00:17:37.130
  • TO FIND THIS FORGIVENESS
  • 00:17:37.130 --> 00:17:38.190
  • AND HEALING
  • 00:17:38.190 --> 00:17:39.290
  • THAT YOUR OFFERING.
  • 00:17:39.290 --> 00:17:41.060
  • AND WE'RE REALLY GOING
  • 00:17:41.060 --> 00:17:42.120
  • Ruth: BUT, JAMES,
  • 00:17:43.200 --> 00:17:44.250
  • EVEN IF HE DOESN'T HEAL ME,
  • 00:17:44.250 --> 00:17:46.180
  • I WANT TO DO WHAT HE HAS
  • 00:17:46.180 --> 00:17:49.010
  • I WANT TO WORSHIP HIM
  • 00:17:50.280 --> 00:17:52.050
  • EVEN WITH THE PAIN.
  • 00:17:52.050 --> 00:17:54.000
  • James: I KNOW YOU DO.
  • 00:17:54.000 --> 00:17:55.080
  • DON'T YOU APPRECIATE
  • 00:17:55.080 --> 00:17:56.130
  • RUTH GRAHAM?
  • 00:17:56.130 --> 00:17:57.200
  • DON'T YOU JUST THANK GOD
  • 00:17:57.200 --> 00:17:58.290
  • FOR THE WHOLE GRAHAM FAMILY?
  • 00:17:58.290 --> 00:18:00.140
  • ALL OF YOU!
  • 00:18:00.140 --> 00:18:01.220
  • FRANKLIN, WE LOVE YOU!
  • 00:18:01.220 --> 00:18:03.000
  • SAMARITAN'S PURSE.
  • 00:18:03.000 --> 00:18:04.010
  • BUDDY, I LOVE YOU.
  • 00:18:04.010 --> 00:18:05.050
  • I'M GLAD I GOT TO BE

  • YOUR PARTNER TO GO AROUND
  • 00:18:06.100 --> 00:18:07.150
  • THE WORLD WITH YOU.
  • 00:18:07.150 --> 00:18:09.040
  • WE'VE GOT TO TOUCH
  • 00:18:09.090 --> 00:18:12.090
  • THE LITTLE ONES TOGETHER
  • 00:18:12.090 --> 00:18:14.180
  • AND WE'LL KEEP DOING IT
  • 00:18:14.180 --> 00:18:16.010
  • AS LONG AS WE'RE BREATHING.
  • 00:18:16.010 --> 00:18:17.170
  • GET THE BOOK!
  • 00:18:17.170 --> 00:18:18.230
  • IT'S IN THE BOOKSTORES.
  • 00:18:18.230 --> 00:18:20.100
  • RUTH, YOU'VE BEEN
  • 00:18:20.100 --> 00:18:21.200
  • TO THE MISSION FIELD WITH US.
  • 00:18:21.200 --> 00:18:23.050
  • DO OUR MISSION
  • 00:18:23.050 --> 00:18:24.100
  • OUTREACHES WORK?
  • 00:18:24.100 --> 00:18:25.140
  • Ruth: OH, MY! YES!
  • 00:18:25.140 --> 00:18:26.170
  • I JUST LOVED MY EXPERIENCE
  • 00:18:28.080 --> 00:18:29.240
  • IN ANGOLA.
  • 00:18:29.240 --> 00:18:31.040
  • I REALLY DID.
  • 00:18:31.040 --> 00:18:32.130
  • James: THE LOVE OF GOD POURED
  • 00:18:32.130 --> 00:18:33.220
  • THROUGH THOSE MISSIONARIES
  • 00:18:33.220 --> 00:18:34.270
  • BUT IT REALLY,
  • 00:18:34.270 --> 00:18:36.060
  • IT COULD ONLY BE WEEPING
  • 00:18:36.060 --> 00:18:37.110
  • WITH NO ABILITY
  • 00:18:37.110 --> 00:18:38.170
  • TO MEET A NEED,
  • 00:18:38.170 --> 00:18:39.260
  • BUT OUR VIEWERS MAKE IT
  • 00:18:39.260 --> 00:18:41.160
  • POSSIBLE TO BE A MIRACLE.
  • 00:18:41.160 --> 00:18:43.060
  • Ruth: AND IT MAKES
  • 00:18:43.060 --> 00:18:44.160
  • SUCH A DIFFERENCE,
  • 00:18:44.160 --> 00:18:45.230
  • SUCH AN ENORMOUS DIFFERENCE
  • 00:18:45.230 --> 00:18:47.020
  • IN THE LIVES OF THOSE -
  • 00:18:47.020 --> 00:18:48.060
  • I CAN SEE THOSE LITTLE KIDS
  • 00:18:48.060 --> 00:18:49.110
  • COMING FROM AFAR
  • 00:18:49.110 --> 00:18:50.170
  • WITH THEIR LITTLE RED BOWLS
  • 00:18:50.170 --> 00:18:51.230
  • AND WITH THEIR SPOONS READY.
  • 00:18:51.230 --> 00:18:53.210
  • TO JUST REALLY JUST
  • 00:18:53.210 --> 00:18:55.280
  • ACCEPT A BOWL FULL OF GRUEL.
  • 00:18:55.280 --> 00:18:58.150
  • James: OUR VIEWERS
  • 00:18:58.150 --> 00:18:59.200
  • PUT GOD'S ARMS
  • 00:18:59.200 --> 00:19:01.110
  • AROUND A LOT OF MOTHERS
  • 00:19:01.110 --> 00:19:03.040
  • AND RAISED UP A LOT OF LITTLE
  • 00:19:03.040 --> 00:19:04.090
  • CHILDREN LIKE THAT BECAUSE
  • 00:19:04.090 --> 00:19:05.180
  • THEY CARED ENOUGH TO SHARE.
  • 00:19:05.180 --> 00:19:07.000
  • Betty: THEY HAVE!
  • 00:19:07.000 --> 00:19:08.070
  • THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT.
  • 00:19:08.070 --> 00:19:09.120
  • THERE ARE MANY TIMES WHEN
  • 00:19:09.120 --> 00:19:10.180
  • JAMES AND I, WHEN WE FIRST
  • 00:19:10.180 --> 00:19:11.250
  • STARTED GOING TO THE MISSION
  • 00:19:11.250 --> 00:19:13.090
  • FIELD, WE WOULD SEE THE LINES
  • 00:19:13.090 --> 00:19:15.040
  • OF THE CHILDREN BECAUSE
  • 00:19:15.040 --> 00:19:16.140
  • SOME OF THEM HADN'T EATEN
  • 00:19:16.140 --> 00:19:17.230
  • FOR DAYS AND DAYS.
  • 00:19:17.230 --> 00:19:19.280
  • BUT THEY WOULD LINE UP
  • 00:19:19.280 --> 00:19:21.040
  • SO PATIENTLY.
  • 00:19:21.040 --> 00:19:22.220
  • I'D ALWAYS PEEK AROUND
  • 00:19:22.220 --> 00:19:24.080
  • AT THE END OF THE LINE
  • 00:19:24.080 --> 00:19:25.290
  • AND HOPE, JAMES THAT
  • 00:19:25.290 --> 00:19:27.200
  • WE WOULDN'T RUN OUT OF FOOD.
  • 00:19:27.200 --> 00:19:29.060
  • BECAUSE WE DID, SOMETIMES.
  • 00:19:29.060 --> 00:19:30.280
  • THAT LAST LITTLE ONE WOULD
  • 00:19:30.280 --> 00:19:32.110
  • GET UP THERE AND WE DIDN'T
  • 00:19:32.110 --> 00:19:33.160
  • HAVE ANYTHING TO GIVE THEM.
  • 00:19:33.160 --> 00:19:34.290
  • IT WOULD BREAK MY HEART.
