  • 00:00:04.044 --> 00:00:06.379
  • (bright music)

  • Hi, I'm Father Cedric, thehost of Live with Passion.

  • I'm so glad that you tuned in.
  • 00:00:23.096 --> 00:00:24.431
  • I'm praying that God'sgonna speak to you,
  • 00:00:24.431 --> 00:00:26.399
  • that you're gonna move forward,

  • that you're not gonna staystuck in any addictions
  • 00:00:28.201 --> 00:00:30.904
  • or any bad habits orany habitual sins.
  • 00:00:30.904 --> 00:00:34.407
  • That was Jesus's message.
  • 00:00:34.407 --> 00:00:36.443
  • Mark chapter 1:14 and 15,
  • 00:00:36.443 --> 00:00:40.713
  • Jesus came to Galilee and hepreached the Gospel of God.
  • 00:00:40.713 --> 00:00:44.717
  • He said, the time is fulfilled.
  • 00:00:44.717 --> 00:00:47.320
  • The kingdom is at hand.
  • 00:00:47.320 --> 00:00:49.756
  • Repent and believein the gospel.
  • 00:00:49.756 --> 00:00:52.525
  • That word repent is metanoia,
  • 00:00:52.525 --> 00:00:56.329
  • and it means haveanother meta, noia, mind.
  • 00:00:56.329 --> 00:00:59.799
  • Jesus' first sermonwas about change,
  • 00:01:01.000 --> 00:01:04.204
  • and he was saying thatchange is possible.
  • 00:01:04.204 --> 00:01:07.674
  • It's at hand,there's an urgency.
  • 00:01:07.674 --> 00:01:10.877
  • You don't have towait any longer.
  • 00:01:10.877 --> 00:01:12.946
  • You can experiencenew life and rebirth.
  • 00:01:12.946 --> 00:01:16.716
  • You can be reborn inyour heart right now.
  • 00:01:17.884 --> 00:01:20.386
  • And that's what I'm hopingfor you that you will change.
  • 00:01:20.386 --> 00:01:22.589
  • No reason to stay stuck.
  • 00:01:22.589 --> 00:01:24.224
  • I wanted to tell you abouta man who got moving.
  • 00:01:25.625 --> 00:01:27.794
  • His name was Bill Wilson,
  • 00:01:27.794 --> 00:01:29.629
  • and the problem washe was an alcoholic.
  • 00:01:29.629 --> 00:01:31.631
  • He ended up in the town'shospital four times.
  • 00:01:31.631 --> 00:01:36.236
  • Fourth time, worstmoment of his life.
  • 00:01:36.236 --> 00:01:38.938
  • Bottomed out, in thehospital, depressed,
  • 00:01:38.938 --> 00:01:43.209
  • finally calls out to God.
  • 00:01:44.277 --> 00:01:46.045
  • God that he didn't know.
  • 00:01:46.045 --> 00:01:48.081
  • Here's a beautiful prayer.
  • 00:01:48.081 --> 00:01:50.183
  • Help!
  • 00:01:50.183 --> 00:01:51.017
  • And he cries out andhe asked God for help.
  • 00:01:52.252 --> 00:01:55.121
  • And right at that moment,something mystical happened.
  • 00:01:55.121 --> 00:01:58.658
  • Light flooded his room.
  • 00:01:58.658 --> 00:02:00.460
  • He had a white light experience,
  • 00:02:00.460 --> 00:02:02.962
  • experienced the ecstasy of God.
  • 00:02:02.962 --> 00:02:05.331
  • And he had a, what hecalled as a God awakening.
  • 00:02:05.331 --> 00:02:08.735
  • And from that moment on,he never another drink.
  • 00:02:08.735 --> 00:02:10.970
  • Of course, the BillWilson I'm talking about,
  • 00:02:10.970 --> 00:02:12.805
  • Bill W. that foundedAlcoholics Anonymous.
  • 00:02:12.805 --> 00:02:16.075
  • And he said, I foundedAlcoholics Anonymous
  • 00:02:16.075 --> 00:02:19.112
  • so that you wouldhave a God awakening.
  • 00:02:19.112 --> 00:02:22.782
  • Oh, see alcoholism or addictionsis a spiritual problem
  • 00:02:22.782 --> 00:02:27.787
  • and it needs aspiritual resolution.
  • 00:02:29.055 --> 00:02:33.026
  • It needs a God resolution.
  • 00:02:33.026 --> 00:02:35.461
  • And what I love aboutBill Wilson's story
  • 00:02:35.461 --> 00:02:37.297
  • is that which caused himto be stuck in misery,
  • 00:02:37.297 --> 00:02:41.634
  • in depression was that whichcaused him to be reborn
  • 00:02:41.634 --> 00:02:46.506
  • and to have a God awakening.
  • 00:02:47.440 --> 00:02:48.975
  • And that's exactlywhat God does.
  • 00:02:48.975 --> 00:02:51.844
  • God knows how to makeall things work to good
  • 00:02:51.844 --> 00:02:54.414
  • for those who love Him.
  • 00:02:54.414 --> 00:02:55.848
  • He knows how to writestraight with crooked lines.
  • 00:02:55.848 --> 00:02:58.418
  • And it happens in somany people's lives.
  • 00:02:58.418 --> 00:03:01.120
  • I think about a friend of minewho fell into an addiction
  • 00:03:01.120 --> 00:03:04.324
  • with gambling and as anescape, trying to cope,
  • 00:03:04.324 --> 00:03:08.695
  • he ended up gettingaddicted to gambling.
  • 00:03:08.695 --> 00:03:11.664
  • He had a God awakening.
  • 00:03:11.664 --> 00:03:13.266
  • He admitted thathe had a problem.
  • 00:03:13.266 --> 00:03:14.867
  • That's what you have todo, had this God awakening.
  • 00:03:14.867 --> 00:03:18.071
  • And now he's reallyinvolved in the church.
  • 00:03:18.071 --> 00:03:20.340
  • In fact, when Icome into his area,
  • 00:03:20.340 --> 00:03:22.575
  • he and his wife helped me atmy book table selling my books.
  • 00:03:22.575 --> 00:03:26.746
  • Then I think about another man,
  • 00:03:26.746 --> 00:03:28.014
  • who's now a grandfatherin the AA program.
  • 00:03:28.014 --> 00:03:31.818
  • What I mean by agrandfather is that
  • 00:03:31.818 --> 00:03:33.519
  • he's been in it a long time.
  • 00:03:33.519 --> 00:03:35.688
  • And he's helping a lot ofpeople to find a solution.
  • 00:03:35.688 --> 00:03:38.625
  • He talks about howhe was struggling
  • 00:03:39.826 --> 00:03:41.828
  • in his job with stressesand relationships
  • 00:03:41.828 --> 00:03:45.198
  • and he began to drinkto cope with all that.
  • 00:03:45.198 --> 00:03:48.134
  • He ended up getting addicted
  • 00:03:48.134 --> 00:03:49.702
  • and then he had a God awakening.
  • 00:03:49.702 --> 00:03:51.938
  • And actually he talksabout God is the one
  • 00:03:51.938 --> 00:03:55.308
  • who brings him out of depression
  • 00:03:55.308 --> 00:03:57.644
  • and brings him to sobriety.
  • 00:03:57.644 --> 00:04:00.013
  • And he says, I don'tknow what I would do
  • 00:04:00.013 --> 00:04:01.648
  • without God in my life.
  • 00:04:01.648 --> 00:04:03.483
  • It's amazing how people notonly come back to the church
  • 00:04:03.483 --> 00:04:06.619
  • but they come back different.
  • 00:04:06.619 --> 00:04:08.721
  • They come back spiritual andthey come back with a message.
  • 00:04:08.721 --> 00:04:12.425
  • So you don't have to stay stuck.
  • 00:04:12.425 --> 00:04:13.993
  • This is just acouple of examples.
  • 00:04:13.993 --> 00:04:16.095
  • God knows how to useaddictions and bad habits
  • 00:04:16.095 --> 00:04:21.100
  • and habitual sins.
  • 00:04:22.302 --> 00:04:24.470
  • On the Easter vigil, wesing, O, Happy Fault.
  • 00:04:24.470 --> 00:04:29.175
  • We're talking about Adam's sin.
  • 00:04:30.476 --> 00:04:32.011
  • O, Happy Fault thatmerited so greatest savior,
  • 00:04:32.011 --> 00:04:36.049
  • that merited resurrection forus and rebirth and new life.
  • 00:04:36.049 --> 00:04:40.887
  • People are stuck in laziness.
  • 00:04:40.887 --> 00:04:43.856
  • They're stuck ingossip, swearing,
  • 00:04:43.856 --> 00:04:46.159
  • smoking, foodaddictions overeating.
  • 00:04:46.159 --> 00:04:50.396
  • I have a friend who told methat, you know, in the pandemic
  • 00:04:50.396 --> 00:04:54.367
  • he's just gotteninto this routine of
  • 00:04:54.367 --> 00:04:57.303
  • he wanted to stop eating,
  • 00:04:57.303 --> 00:04:58.771
  • but it's that time of night.
  • 00:04:58.771 --> 00:05:00.340
  • And he just goesto the refrigerator
  • 00:05:00.340 --> 00:05:02.108
  • and keeps eating andfeels like his will is.
  • 00:05:02.108 --> 00:05:04.844
  • And I told him, admityou have a problem,
  • 00:05:04.844 --> 00:05:08.414
  • recognize that God can help you,
  • 00:05:09.749 --> 00:05:11.684
  • believe that God will help you,
  • 00:05:12.552 --> 00:05:14.554
  • and make a surrenderto the care of God.
  • 00:05:15.755 --> 00:05:18.358
  • And that's thesolution, real simple.
  • 00:05:18.358 --> 00:05:20.626
  • It's in the 12 steps.
  • 00:05:20.626 --> 00:05:22.528
  • You don't even haveto go to a meeting.
  • 00:05:22.528 --> 00:05:24.030
  • I hope you will if you needto, but it's real simple.
  • 00:05:24.030 --> 00:05:27.066
  • You must admit to yourself,and this is so hard to do
  • 00:05:27.066 --> 00:05:31.170
  • for people becausewe're prideful.
  • 00:05:31.170 --> 00:05:34.273
  • And I think the number onething that holds us back
  • 00:05:34.273 --> 00:05:36.943
  • is thinking we don't need it
  • 00:05:36.943 --> 00:05:38.711
  • and everybody else isaddicted, but not me.
  • 00:05:38.711 --> 00:05:41.047
  • And in order to cope,people are struggling.
  • 00:05:41.047 --> 00:05:43.783
  • They're turning toalcohol and drugs
  • 00:05:43.783 --> 00:05:45.918
  • and gambling and overeating,porn to escape the boredom.
  • 00:05:45.918 --> 00:05:50.490
  • One psychologist called thepandemic a perfect storm
  • 00:05:50.490 --> 00:05:55.128
  • because of the stresses and thedepression and the feelings.
  • 00:05:55.128 --> 00:05:59.265
  • It was Michelle Obama thatwent public with her depression
  • 00:05:59.265 --> 00:06:03.102
  • talking about because ofpolitics and also the pandemic.
  • 00:06:03.102 --> 00:06:06.239
  • So people are going throughemotional upheavals.
  • 00:06:06.239 --> 00:06:09.142
  • And in the midst of it all,
  • 00:06:09.142 --> 00:06:10.376
  • there's this perfectstorm with addictions.
  • 00:06:10.376 --> 00:06:14.013
  • Well addictionsare like quicksand,
  • 00:06:14.013 --> 00:06:15.782
  • if you ever seena man or a woman
  • 00:06:17.150 --> 00:06:18.551
  • trying to get out of quicksand,
  • 00:06:18.551 --> 00:06:19.819
  • what they do is they getstuck in the quicksand.
  • 00:06:19.819 --> 00:06:22.255
  • And the more they struggle,the deeper they go.
  • 00:06:22.255 --> 00:06:25.892
  • And what has to happen isa lifeline has to be thrown
  • 00:06:27.326 --> 00:06:30.763
  • out to the personin the quicksand
  • 00:06:30.763 --> 00:06:32.932
  • so they can grab a hold ofit and be pulled to safety.
  • 00:06:32.932 --> 00:06:36.436
  • Similarly, what theprogram teaches,
  • 00:06:37.570 --> 00:06:40.006
  • the 12-step program isthat when you're stuck
  • 00:06:40.006 --> 00:06:43.843
  • in an addiction, you can'treally help yourself.
  • 00:06:43.843 --> 00:06:48.848
  • I hope that makes sense.
  • 00:06:49.582 --> 00:06:50.183
  • Yeah, you can try to stopand maybe for a while
  • 00:06:51.584 --> 00:06:55.321
  • and I can do it and self-made,and that whole thing,
  • 00:06:55.321 --> 00:06:59.258
  • but that's not reallywhat they proclaim,
  • 00:06:59.258 --> 00:07:02.495
  • the 12-step program.
  • 00:07:02.495 --> 00:07:04.464
  • They proclaim that you got tocome to the end of yourself.
  • 00:07:04.464 --> 00:07:07.667
  • You got to admitthat you can't do it,
  • 00:07:07.667 --> 00:07:09.802
  • that you'repowerless, powerless.
  • 00:07:09.802 --> 00:07:14.240
  • That's not such a bad thing.
  • 00:07:15.942 --> 00:07:17.477
  • Because we are powerlessover many things in life.
  • 00:07:18.911 --> 00:07:22.682
  • It takes humility to admitthat you're powerless.
  • 00:07:24.083 --> 00:07:26.719
  • And then once you admit that,
  • 00:07:26.719 --> 00:07:28.955
  • then the program is sayingthat you need to turn to God,
  • 00:07:28.955 --> 00:07:33.960
  • divine help, that lifeline,
  • 00:07:33.960 --> 00:07:37.230
  • and you can get outof that quicksand.
  • 00:07:37.230 --> 00:07:38.998
  • And it's the same way notonly with an addiction
  • 00:07:38.998 --> 00:07:40.933
  • but with a bad habitor with a habitual sin.
  • 00:07:40.933 --> 00:07:44.103
  • Many people come tome to confession,
  • 00:07:44.103 --> 00:07:46.239
  • they say, Father, I justconfess the same thing.
  • 00:07:46.239 --> 00:07:48.474
  • I'm stuck in this area.
  • 00:07:48.474 --> 00:07:49.709
  • I just can't seemto move forward
  • 00:07:49.709 --> 00:07:51.577
  • and I need God to help me.
  • 00:07:51.577 --> 00:07:52.945
  • And that's exactlywhat needs to happen.
  • 00:07:52.945 --> 00:07:55.848
  • God can help you.
  • 00:07:55.848 --> 00:07:57.650
  • Now we talk about God as beingall mighty, all mighty God.
  • 00:07:57.650 --> 00:08:02.121
  • We know that Godcreated the universe.
  • 00:08:02.121 --> 00:08:05.391
  • Astronomers are tellingus trillions of galaxies,
  • 00:08:05.391 --> 00:08:10.396
  • not stars, galaxies.
  • 00:08:11.130 --> 00:08:13.399
  • We know that God created7.8 billion people
  • 00:08:13.399 --> 00:08:16.335
  • on the face of the earth sofar and it's still growing.
  • 00:08:16.335 --> 00:08:19.171
  • Go to the mountains,look at the ocean,
  • 00:08:20.339 --> 00:08:22.975
  • look up at the stars.
  • 00:08:23.809 --> 00:08:25.778
  • God is almighty.
  • 00:08:25.778 --> 00:08:28.581
  • But I think that Godshows His miraculous power
  • 00:08:29.949 --> 00:08:32.451
  • in lives of people thatovercome addictions,
  • 00:08:33.586 --> 00:08:37.657
  • in lives of people thatcome into sobriety,
  • 00:08:38.791 --> 00:08:41.861
  • in lives of people thatchange, lives of people
  • 00:08:41.861 --> 00:08:44.830
  • that are born again, filledwith the Holy Spirit, saved.
  • 00:08:44.830 --> 00:08:49.368
  • That's the miracle.
  • 00:08:49.368 --> 00:08:50.603
  • That's why Jesuscame into Galilee
  • 00:08:50.603 --> 00:08:52.238
  • and he preached the good news.
  • 00:08:52.238 --> 00:08:53.706
  • And he said, thetime is fulfilled,
  • 00:08:53.706 --> 00:08:55.041
  • the kingdom of Godis at hand, repent.
  • 00:08:55.041 --> 00:08:57.843
  • Believe in the good news.
  • 00:08:57.843 --> 00:09:00.012
  • He's saying you can havea change in your mind
  • 00:09:00.012 --> 00:09:02.281
  • and in your attitudeand in your behavior.
  • 00:09:02.281 --> 00:09:04.784
  • You can experiencechange in your life.
  • 00:09:04.784 --> 00:09:06.886
  • I wrote a book called"You Can Change".
  • 00:09:06.886 --> 00:09:09.822
  • Underline that word can.
  • 00:09:09.822 --> 00:09:11.891
  • And I also wrote a book aboutaddictions and bad habits
  • 00:09:11.891 --> 00:09:14.927
  • called "There Is A Solution".
  • 00:09:14.927 --> 00:09:17.597
  • I don't want you to stay stuck.
  • 00:09:19.632 --> 00:09:21.100
  • The spiritual life, folks,it's all about moving forward.
  • 00:09:21.100 --> 00:09:24.637
  • It's all about thepilgrimage, about the journey.
  • 00:09:24.637 --> 00:09:26.706
  • It's about moving and changing.
  • 00:09:26.706 --> 00:09:29.642
  • So we know thatchange is possible.
  • 00:09:30.776 --> 00:09:32.144
  • All you have to dois look at society
  • 00:09:32.144 --> 00:09:33.746
  • and what happened in societyin 2020 with the pandemic.
  • 00:09:33.746 --> 00:09:37.683
  • I mean, we went from one weekto everybody's shaking hands
  • 00:09:37.683 --> 00:09:40.786
  • and hugging and talkingto the next week,
  • 00:09:40.786 --> 00:09:43.255
  • you can't touch anybody,
  • 00:09:43.255 --> 00:09:44.757
  • you can't get near peoplebecause the pandemic has hit
  • 00:09:44.757 --> 00:09:47.693
  • and how our society has changed.
  • 00:09:47.693 --> 00:09:51.197
  • Things are totallydifferent now.
  • 00:09:51.197 --> 00:09:52.965
  • So that's a parable to me.
  • 00:09:53.866 --> 00:09:56.202
  • Society changes.
  • 00:09:56.202 --> 00:09:57.503
  • Life has changed.
  • 00:09:57.503 --> 00:09:58.704
  • We can change.
  • 00:09:58.704 --> 00:10:00.239
  • You don't have to behavethe same way all the time.
  • 00:10:00.239 --> 00:10:03.809
  • If you're overeating,
  • 00:10:03.809 --> 00:10:05.211
  • if you're watchingthings on the Internet
  • 00:10:05.211 --> 00:10:06.812
  • you shouldn't be watching,drinking, drugging, gambling,
  • 00:10:06.812 --> 00:10:11.584
  • whatever it is, you donot have to stay stuck.
  • 00:10:11.584 --> 00:10:16.455
  • And I'm praying, as Isaid in the beginning,
  • 00:10:16.455 --> 00:10:19.025
  • that God will speak toyou in this program.
  • 00:10:19.025 --> 00:10:22.495
  • He will use thisprogram to set you free.
  • 00:10:22.495 --> 00:10:26.399
  • So what is the solution?
  • 00:10:28.634 --> 00:10:30.236
  • There is a solution.
  • 00:10:31.170 --> 00:10:32.138
  • That's the name of my book,
  • 00:10:32.138 --> 00:10:33.372
  • and that comes rightfrom the big book
  • 00:10:33.372 --> 00:10:35.241
  • where Bill Wilson saidthere is a solution.
  • 00:10:35.241 --> 00:10:38.010
  • And as I've alreadytalked about a little bit,
  • 00:10:38.010 --> 00:10:40.913
  • what is the solution to stayingstuck and having bad habits
  • 00:10:40.913 --> 00:10:45.384
  • and having habitual sinsand overcoming an addiction?
  • 00:10:45.384 --> 00:10:50.389
  • And by the way, you don'tjust overcome an addiction,
  • 00:10:51.824 --> 00:10:53.059
  • you come into recoveryfrom an addiction.
  • 00:10:53.059 --> 00:10:56.062
  • You're not set free froman addiction per se,
  • 00:10:57.229 --> 00:10:59.465
  • although that can happen.
  • 00:10:59.465 --> 00:11:00.499
  • God has the power to do that.
  • 00:11:00.499 --> 00:11:02.034
  • What usually happens is Godwalks with you in recovery
  • 00:11:02.034 --> 00:11:06.338
  • so that you face your addictions
  • 00:11:07.773 --> 00:11:10.242
  • and you face your inner issues.
  • 00:11:10.242 --> 00:11:12.578
  • That's what 12-stepmeetings are all about,
  • 00:11:12.578 --> 00:11:15.981
  • so that you come to recovery.
  • 00:11:15.981 --> 00:11:17.650
  • And it's the samewith habitual sins.
  • 00:11:19.118 --> 00:11:21.087
  • You've got to look atyour issues, bad habits,
  • 00:11:21.087 --> 00:11:24.290
  • what's causing this.
  • 00:11:24.290 --> 00:11:25.791
  • And just like my friendwith a food addiction,
  • 00:11:26.959 --> 00:11:30.029
  • if you admit to yourself,and that's the first step,
  • 00:11:31.497 --> 00:11:35.034
  • there is a solution,you admit to yourself
  • 00:11:35.034 --> 00:11:39.205
  • and that's a hugestep by the way.
  • 00:11:39.205 --> 00:11:41.107
  • Remember, NeilArmstrong on the moon,
  • 00:11:42.341 --> 00:11:44.009
  • that's one small step for man,
  • 00:11:44.009 --> 00:11:45.444
  • one giant leap for mankind.
  • 00:11:45.444 --> 00:11:47.446
  • For a giant leapwithin addiction,
  • 00:11:47.446 --> 00:11:50.282
  • it's that admittingto yourself and to God
  • 00:11:50.282 --> 00:11:53.819
  • and perhaps another personthat you have a problem.
  • 00:11:53.819 --> 00:11:57.723
  • And until you admit to yourself,nothing's gonna happen,
  • 00:11:57.723 --> 00:12:00.860
  • unconfronted issueswill never get better.
  • 00:12:00.860 --> 00:12:04.463
  • You must confront your issues.
  • 00:12:04.463 --> 00:12:07.066
  • You must confrontyour addiction.
  • 00:12:07.066 --> 00:12:09.201
  • And if you don't, it's gonnabully you and push you around.
  • 00:12:09.201 --> 00:12:12.838
  • So how do you admit to yourselfthat you have a problem?
  • 00:12:14.173 --> 00:12:16.575
  • Well, you've heardabout bottoming out.
  • 00:12:17.910 --> 00:12:20.546
  • People have all kindsof different experiences
  • 00:12:21.714 --> 00:12:23.983
  • to reach their low moment.
  • 00:12:23.983 --> 00:12:25.484
  • For Bill Wilson, it was inthe hospital, depressed.
  • 00:12:25.484 --> 00:12:28.187
  • For me, it was when Ibroke up with a girl
  • 00:12:28.187 --> 00:12:29.922
  • and felt lonely and empty.
  • 00:12:29.922 --> 00:12:32.892
  • Different people willget in an accident
  • 00:12:32.892 --> 00:12:34.860
  • or a fight or whatever itis, have a bottoming out.
  • 00:12:34.860 --> 00:12:37.563
  • Some type of asuffering experience
  • 00:12:37.563 --> 00:12:40.266
  • that makes you reallylook at yourself and say,
  • 00:12:40.266 --> 00:12:42.868
  • I got to change,I've had enough.
  • 00:12:42.868 --> 00:12:44.637
  • It's kind of like thelittle eagle in the nest.
  • 00:12:46.038 --> 00:12:48.908
  • It's all padded and everything.
  • 00:12:48.908 --> 00:12:51.010
  • And it's happy in the nest
  • 00:12:51.010 --> 00:12:52.311
  • and then the momwants it to leave.
  • 00:12:52.311 --> 00:12:54.213
  • It's time to leave.
  • 00:12:54.213 --> 00:12:56.115
  • So she pulls out the padding,
  • 00:12:56.115 --> 00:12:58.317
  • and all the thornsare underneath.
  • 00:12:58.317 --> 00:12:59.819
  • And finally the bird takes offbecause it's uncomfortable.
  • 00:12:59.819 --> 00:13:02.955
  • And that's what a bottomingout experience does.
  • 00:13:02.955 --> 00:13:05.024
  • It makes you so uncomfortablethat you change.
  • 00:13:05.024 --> 00:13:07.326
  • Or it could be an intervention.
  • 00:13:08.661 --> 00:13:10.396
  • An intervention iswhen a family member
  • 00:13:11.564 --> 00:13:13.465
  • or a friend confronts you
  • 00:13:13.465 --> 00:13:16.335
  • with yourinappropriate behavior.
  • 00:13:16.335 --> 00:13:20.272
  • In a way, my preaching is anintervention in your life.
  • 00:13:20.272 --> 00:13:24.109
  • I'm hoping thatI'm confronting you
  • 00:13:24.109 --> 00:13:25.945
  • with your inappropriatebehavior, such thatyou will change.
  • 00:13:25.945 --> 00:13:29.915
  • So admit to yourself.
  • 00:13:29.915 --> 00:13:32.618
  • It takes humility.
  • 00:13:32.618 --> 00:13:34.386
  • Humility is huge inthe 12-step program.
  • 00:13:34.386 --> 00:13:37.489
  • Then number two, you believethat God can help you.
  • 00:13:37.489 --> 00:13:41.493
  • The God thatcreated the universe
  • 00:13:41.493 --> 00:13:43.696
  • certainly has thepower to help you.
  • 00:13:43.696 --> 00:13:46.498
  • His power is demonstratedin forgiveness,
  • 00:13:46.498 --> 00:13:50.669
  • and mercy, and inpersonal change.
  • 00:13:50.669 --> 00:13:54.306
  • God transformslives by His grace.
  • 00:13:54.306 --> 00:13:58.844
  • That's His business.
  • 00:13:58.844 --> 00:14:00.813
  • That's what he loves to do.
  • 00:14:00.813 --> 00:14:02.081
  • That's why Jesus, hisfirst sermon, he said,
  • 00:14:02.081 --> 00:14:05.651
  • metanoia, change is possible.
  • 00:14:05.651 --> 00:14:08.754
  • That was his inaugural keynote.
  • 00:14:08.754 --> 00:14:11.624
  • And then of courseyou must trust
  • 00:14:13.492 --> 00:14:16.295
  • in the care of God for you.
  • 00:14:16.295 --> 00:14:18.297
  • And God does care for you.
  • 00:14:18.297 --> 00:14:19.531
  • He created you.
  • 00:14:19.531 --> 00:14:20.599
  • Although he created allthe billions of people
  • 00:14:21.767 --> 00:14:24.470
  • on the face of theplanet, every heartbeat,
  • 00:14:24.470 --> 00:14:28.407
  • every breath, every momentis a gift from God to you.
  • 00:14:29.875 --> 00:14:34.313
  • So get in touch with thefact that all His gift
  • 00:14:35.481 --> 00:14:38.651
  • you didn't callyourself into being.
  • 00:14:38.651 --> 00:14:40.920
  • And the one who giftedyou with your being
  • 00:14:40.920 --> 00:14:43.222
  • is the one who cares for you.
  • 00:14:43.222 --> 00:14:45.324
  • So therefore, the one whocares for you will help you
  • 00:14:45.324 --> 00:14:49.395
  • and believe that and turnyour will over to God.
  • 00:14:49.395 --> 00:14:54.033
  • The same will that iscaught in this addiction,
  • 00:14:54.033 --> 00:14:57.536
  • in these bad habits, thatsame will can be given to God.
  • 00:14:57.536 --> 00:15:00.873
  • And that, by the way,if you're Catholic
  • 00:15:00.873 --> 00:15:02.641
  • or very religious atall, any denomination,
  • 00:15:02.641 --> 00:15:06.345
  • that is what the peoplethat have gone before us,
  • 00:15:07.780 --> 00:15:09.281
  • we call them saints whohave lived beautiful lives
  • 00:15:09.281 --> 00:15:11.850
  • all teach: surrenderto the will of God.
  • 00:15:11.850 --> 00:15:15.487
  • In fact, Jesus himself inthe Garden of Gethsemane,
  • 00:15:15.487 --> 00:15:18.324
  • Father, not my will,but your will be done.
  • 00:15:18.324 --> 00:15:21.226
  • In the Our Father,
  • 00:15:21.226 --> 00:15:22.861
  • He taught us to pray forGod's will to be done.
  • 00:15:22.861 --> 00:15:26.031
  • So turn your will over to thewill of God, the surrender.
  • 00:15:26.031 --> 00:15:29.969
  • And in that surrender,God will help you.
  • 00:15:29.969 --> 00:15:33.806
  • I saw a bumper stickerone time and it says,
  • 00:15:33.806 --> 00:15:36.842
  • "If God is your copilot,consider swapping seats."
  • 00:15:36.842 --> 00:15:41.180
  • And I think that'sa beautiful scene
  • 00:15:41.180 --> 00:15:43.282
  • because instead of Godjust being in there
  • 00:15:43.282 --> 00:15:45.284
  • in the car with you,
  • 00:15:45.284 --> 00:15:46.218
  • why don't you let God drive?
  • 00:15:46.218 --> 00:15:48.220
  • Take your hands off the wheel.
  • 00:15:48.220 --> 00:15:49.655
  • It's Carrie Underwood's song,"Jesus, Take The Wheel".
  • 00:15:49.655 --> 00:15:53.225
  • So make a surrender.
  • 00:15:54.994 --> 00:15:56.328
  • Turn your life over to God.
  • 00:15:57.296 --> 00:15:59.665
  • Watch what happens.
  • 00:15:59.665 --> 00:16:01.300
  • Change personal innerthinking, behaving.
  • 00:16:01.300 --> 00:16:06.305
  • Change is possible.
  • 00:16:09.675 --> 00:16:13.846
  • There is a solution.
  • 00:16:15.147 --> 00:16:18.283
  • It's biblical, it's time tried.
  • 00:16:18.283 --> 00:16:21.653
  • Millions of peopleare in recovery.
  • 00:16:22.821 --> 00:16:24.957
  • You may also wanna goto a 12-step meeting.
  • 00:16:28.160 --> 00:16:30.662
  • You may also want to goto an addictions consular.
  • 00:16:32.164 --> 00:16:35.234
  • You may want to get asponsor spiritual director.
  • 00:16:36.602 --> 00:16:39.838
  • You can't doeverything on your own.
  • 00:16:39.838 --> 00:16:42.174
  • Because I know youwanna surrender
  • 00:16:42.174 --> 00:16:43.842
  • but it doesn'tseem to be working.
  • 00:16:43.842 --> 00:16:45.277
  • Well, go the next step.
  • 00:16:45.277 --> 00:16:46.478
  • True surrender meansgetting involved
  • 00:16:46.478 --> 00:16:50.849
  • so that you canreally help yourself.
  • 00:16:50.849 --> 00:16:53.419
  • And I love the factthat millions ofpeople are in recovery
  • 00:16:53.419 --> 00:16:58.424
  • and they're talking about theirissues and their problems.
  • 00:16:59.792 --> 00:17:02.594
  • And then I wanted to tell you
  • 00:17:02.594 --> 00:17:03.829
  • that you can changein your relationships.
  • 00:17:03.829 --> 00:17:06.632
  • Woman came up to meone time and she said,
  • 00:17:06.632 --> 00:17:08.267
  • Father, God doesn'thear my prayer.
  • 00:17:08.267 --> 00:17:09.768
  • And I go, what areyou talking about
  • 00:17:09.768 --> 00:17:10.869
  • God, doesn't hear your prayer?
  • 00:17:10.869 --> 00:17:12.237
  • Of course Godhears your prayers.
  • 00:17:12.237 --> 00:17:13.739
  • She said, well, not my prayer.
  • 00:17:13.739 --> 00:17:15.207
  • My husband's an alcoholicand I've been praying for him
  • 00:17:15.207 --> 00:17:17.342
  • to be sober andnothing is happening.
  • 00:17:17.342 --> 00:17:19.912
  • God doesn't hear my prayer.
  • 00:17:19.912 --> 00:17:22.147
  • And I kind of smiled.
  • 00:17:22.147 --> 00:17:23.348
  • I didn't mean to, Iwasn't laughing at her.
  • 00:17:23.348 --> 00:17:25.250
  • I was smiling with her becauseI understand how that feels.
  • 00:17:25.250 --> 00:17:28.620
  • And what I told her was
  • 00:17:28.620 --> 00:17:29.855
  • the wisdom of the 12-stepprogram talks about,
  • 00:17:31.223 --> 00:17:34.660
  • you may not be able tochange somebody else
  • 00:17:34.660 --> 00:17:36.428
  • but you can changeyourself with God's help.
  • 00:17:36.428 --> 00:17:39.731
  • And I talked aboutco-dependence.
  • 00:17:40.866 --> 00:17:43.569
  • If you've ever heardabout codependence,
  • 00:17:43.569 --> 00:17:45.237
  • that's when, I liketo use the image
  • 00:17:45.237 --> 00:17:48.307

  • When somebody is drinking,
  • 00:17:50.509 --> 00:17:52.377
  • they're manipulating you.
  • 00:17:52.377 --> 00:17:54.313
  • When they're not happy,you're not happy.
  • 00:17:54.313 --> 00:17:56.648
  • When they'veseemingly rejected you
  • 00:17:57.683 --> 00:18:00.018
  • because they haven't said theright thing, then you're down,
  • 00:18:00.018 --> 00:18:03.422
  • so you're being manipulatedby the behavior of others.
  • 00:18:03.422 --> 00:18:06.125
  • But the program talksabout the 12-step program
  • 00:18:07.526 --> 00:18:09.761
  • Al-Anon for spousesof alcoholics talksabout co-dependence

  • and talks about somethingcalled detachment,
  • 00:18:16.034 --> 00:18:17.803
  • where you cannot beobsessed by this person.

  • You can manage your anger.
  • 00:18:25.410 --> 00:18:27.212
  • You can look at yourselfand find serenity.
  • 00:18:27.212 --> 00:18:31.350
  • That's the wholething about the prayer
  • 00:18:31.350 --> 00:18:33.285
  • by Reinhold Niebuhr: God,grant me the serenity

  • the courage to changethe things I can
  • 00:18:39.458 --> 00:18:41.160
  • and the wisdom toknow the difference.
  • 00:18:41.160 --> 00:18:43.795
  • (calm music)
  • 00:18:43.795 --> 00:18:46.865
  • That's such a beautiful prayer
  • 00:18:46.865 --> 00:18:48.467
  • because it talksabout acceptance andcourage and serenity.
  • 00:18:48.467 --> 00:18:51.737
  • And that's what people need.
  • 00:18:52.938 --> 00:18:55.007
  • Heard this storyabout the taxi driver
  • 00:18:55.007 --> 00:18:58.377
  • and the man was in the taxicab and all of a sudden
  • 00:18:58.377 --> 00:19:01.880
  • as they're driving,this man backs out
  • 00:19:01.880 --> 00:19:04.483
  • right in front of them,almost hits the taxi cab.
  • 00:19:04.483 --> 00:19:08.353
  • Taxi cab just lastsecond, swerves around,
  • 00:19:08.353 --> 00:19:11.623
  • barely missed him.
  • 00:19:11.623 --> 00:19:13.125
  • And the man who backed outalmost caused that accident
  • 00:19:13.125 --> 00:19:16.728
  • starts swearingand making gestures
  • 00:19:16.728 --> 00:19:21.466
  • towards him and everything.
  • 00:19:21.466 --> 00:19:23.001
  • And the taxi driver smilesand waves and drives away.
  • 00:19:23.001 --> 00:19:26.538
  • The guy in the backseatsaid, how did you do that?
  • 00:19:26.538 --> 00:19:30.175
  • That guy was the one thatalmost caused the accident,
  • 00:19:31.610 --> 00:19:34.279
  • and you were so nice to him.
  • 00:19:34.279 --> 00:19:35.614
  • How do you do it?
  • 00:19:35.614 --> 00:19:36.815
  • And the taxi driverkind of smiled.
  • 00:19:36.815 --> 00:19:38.183
  • And he said, you know, people,
  • 00:19:38.183 --> 00:19:39.384
  • some people arelike garbage trucks,
  • 00:19:39.384 --> 00:19:42.754
  • they accumulate garbage, they'refrustrated, they're angry,
  • 00:19:42.754 --> 00:19:47.593
  • they're negative, they're toxic.
  • 00:19:47.593 --> 00:19:50.062
  • And as the garbage pilesup like a garbage truck,
  • 00:19:50.062 --> 00:19:52.397
  • they got to dump it somewhere.
  • 00:19:52.397 --> 00:19:54.633
  • And he wanted to dump it on me,
  • 00:19:54.633 --> 00:19:57.402
  • but I don't take it personal.
  • 00:19:58.403 --> 00:20:00.138
  • I just smile and waveand wish him well.
  • 00:20:01.306 --> 00:20:03.642
  • Don't allow people'stoxicity to get off on you.
  • 00:20:05.010 --> 00:20:09.014
  • You don't have to allowthem to dump on you.
  • 00:20:10.182 --> 00:20:12.284
  • You can defeat evil with good.
  • 00:20:13.151 --> 00:20:16.088
  • And that's exactlywhat the scripture says
  • 00:20:16.088 --> 00:20:18.223
  • in the Letter to the Romans,defeat evil with good.
  • 00:20:18.223 --> 00:20:22.160
  • You don't have to reactto the way that people
  • 00:20:23.362 --> 00:20:28.000
  • behave towards you when theybully you or when they drink
  • 00:20:29.468 --> 00:20:34.139
  • or whatever theirinappropriate behaviors are.
  • 00:20:35.440 --> 00:20:37.909
  • And I realized that it'shard not to take it personal
  • 00:20:37.909 --> 00:20:42.914
  • but the bottom line isis some people are toxic,
  • 00:20:44.316 --> 00:20:46.118
  • and you don't have toabsorb that toxicity.
  • 00:20:47.319 --> 00:20:49.855
  • Take the high road.
  • 00:20:49.855 --> 00:20:50.989
  • Don't let themdetermine who you are.
  • 00:20:50.989 --> 00:20:52.991
  • And you can be strong.
  • 00:20:53.959 --> 00:20:55.227
  • You don't have tobe codependent.
  • 00:20:55.227 --> 00:20:57.162
  • But sometimes you'vegot to confront.
  • 00:20:58.730 --> 00:21:00.932
  • I've discovered in my lifeif I just let people bully me
  • 00:21:02.734 --> 00:21:07.706
  • or walk all over me, I'menabling their behavior.
  • 00:21:08.940 --> 00:21:12.210
  • And it seems like sometimesGod puts these people
  • 00:21:13.645 --> 00:21:18.317
  • in my life to teach mehow to be courageous.
  • 00:21:18.317 --> 00:21:22.688
  • I can only back down for so long
  • 00:21:23.889 --> 00:21:26.758
  • and only walk away for so long.
  • 00:21:26.758 --> 00:21:28.360
  • But there comes a timewhen you've got to stand up
  • 00:21:28.360 --> 00:21:31.363
  • for yourself or you'rejust gonna continue
  • 00:21:31.363 --> 00:21:33.598
  • to enable that behavior.
  • 00:21:33.598 --> 00:21:35.233
  • That's God give you thewisdom to know the difference.
  • 00:21:35.233 --> 00:21:37.936
  • So I pray that you willchange in your relationships,
  • 00:21:39.304 --> 00:21:44.176
  • in your own personal life.
  • 00:21:46.378 --> 00:21:48.080
  • And I love thiswhole theme of change
  • 00:21:49.181 --> 00:21:50.682
  • because the goal of theChristian life really,
  • 00:21:50.682 --> 00:21:54.720
  • certainly number one is tohave a personal relationship
  • 00:21:54.720 --> 00:21:57.322
  • with God, your prayerlife ought to be changing
  • 00:21:57.322 --> 00:22:00.425
  • but it's also to betransformed as a person.
  • 00:22:00.425 --> 00:22:03.662
  • I am not, and hopefully you too,
  • 00:22:03.662 --> 00:22:06.264
  • I am not the same person I was.
  • 00:22:06.264 --> 00:22:08.367
  • When I first receivedChrist back as a teenager,
  • 00:22:09.801 --> 00:22:12.337
  • I have totally changed.
  • 00:22:13.305 --> 00:22:14.606
  • It's wonderful to seethe transformation
  • 00:22:14.606 --> 00:22:16.641
  • that's happened in me,but I'm still changing.
  • 00:22:16.641 --> 00:22:20.445
  • Saw that bumper stickerone time and it said,
  • 00:22:20.445 --> 00:22:22.147
  • "Be patient with me, God'snot done with me yet."
  • 00:22:22.147 --> 00:22:24.483
  • And I realized that change isincremental, it takes time.
  • 00:22:24.483 --> 00:22:27.853
  • It's progressive.
  • 00:22:27.853 --> 00:22:29.688
  • And so I caught myselfa little bit of slack,
  • 00:22:29.688 --> 00:22:32.190
  • and I hope you will too.
  • 00:22:32.190 --> 00:22:33.658
  • Don't always be mad at yourselfbecause you're not perfect.
  • 00:22:33.658 --> 00:22:37.329
  • You move forward.
  • 00:22:37.329 --> 00:22:39.131
  • But the bottom line I'mtrying to tell you is
  • 00:22:39.131 --> 00:22:40.799
  • because you might thinkthat you're stuck,
  • 00:22:40.799 --> 00:22:42.167
  • and this is the wayyou're always gonna be,
  • 00:22:42.167 --> 00:22:45.137
  • change is possible.
  • 00:22:45.137 --> 00:22:47.572
  • You don't have to stay stuck.
  • 00:22:47.572 --> 00:22:49.574
  • I have given you sometime-tested true principles.
  • 00:22:49.574 --> 00:22:54.513
  • So I'm gonna inviteyou to take a look
  • 00:22:54.513 --> 00:22:56.448
  • at your life right nowand to make a decision
  • 00:22:56.448 --> 00:22:59.751
  • that you're gonna move forward.
  • 00:23:00.752 --> 00:23:03.455
  • That now is the moment,that today is the day.
  • 00:23:04.990 --> 00:23:09.094
  • That comes rightfrom the scriptures,
  • 00:23:09.094 --> 00:23:10.929
  • where Paul the apostle says,today is the day of salvation.
  • 00:23:12.364 --> 00:23:15.901
  • Now is the acceptable time.
  • 00:23:15.901 --> 00:23:18.437
  • And that's the urgencyof the scriptures.
  • 00:23:18.437 --> 00:23:21.840
  • The scriptures neverpromise us a tomorrow
  • 00:23:21.840 --> 00:23:24.309
  • when it comes to change.
  • 00:23:24.309 --> 00:23:25.744
  • It says now is thetime, make your move.
  • 00:23:26.878 --> 00:23:30.515
  • Don't put it off.
  • 00:23:30.515 --> 00:23:32.451
  • Don't procrastinate.
  • 00:23:32.451 --> 00:23:34.686
  • So simply take alook within and admit
  • 00:23:34.686 --> 00:23:38.323
  • what you have to admit.
  • 00:23:38.323 --> 00:23:40.425
  • Talk about confrontation,confront yourself.
  • 00:23:40.425 --> 00:23:43.261
  • Admit what you have toadmit, and then realize
  • 00:23:44.429 --> 00:23:49.000
  • that you're powerlessover some things.
  • 00:23:49.000 --> 00:23:51.102
  • Recognize that God's got thepower and He's invested in you.
  • 00:23:52.771 --> 00:23:57.776
  • He cares for you, andHe's going to help you.
  • 00:23:58.944 --> 00:24:00.946
  • And simply turn yourwill, not just one time,
  • 00:24:00.946 --> 00:24:05.550
  • over and over again insurrender to the care of God.
  • 00:24:05.550 --> 00:24:10.555
  • And I know God's gonna help you.
  • 00:24:11.423 --> 00:24:12.390
  • I know that you're notgonna stay stuck anymore.
  • 00:24:13.792 --> 00:24:17.529
  • Don't just live,live with passion.
  • 00:24:17.529 --> 00:24:19.531
  • My main goal with Livewith Passion is to help you
  • 00:24:25.270 --> 00:24:28.573
  • to have a God awakening.

  • I want you to have a personalrelationship with God,
  • 00:24:30.842 --> 00:24:32.911
  • but I also want you tomove forward and to change
  • 00:24:32.911 --> 00:24:35.080
  • and to grow as a person.
  • 00:24:35.080 --> 00:24:36.781
  • That's why I love thisemail that I received
  • 00:24:36.781 --> 00:24:39.551
  • from a man, he said he wasstruggling with alcohol,
  • 00:24:39.551 --> 00:24:42.187
  • ended up in the hospital,read my book, felt peace,
  • 00:24:42.187 --> 00:24:47.192
  • went to AA meetingsand everything changed.
  • 00:24:48.326 --> 00:24:51.062
  • And now he hasn'thad a drink since.
  • 00:24:52.264 --> 00:24:54.266
  • He says, God tookthe desire away.
  • 00:24:54.266 --> 00:24:56.201
  • I love this; he's changed.
  • 00:24:56.201 --> 00:24:58.370
  • He's coming to recovery.
