  • - God wants to talk to us, but are we listening?
  • 00:00:01.110 --> 00:00:03.060
  • Our conversation today is not mystical or unattainable.
  • 00:00:03.060 --> 00:00:07.070
  • It's miraculous and deeply personal, come and join us.
  • 00:00:07.070 --> 00:00:10.200
  • (theme music)
  • 00:00:10.200 --> 00:00:13.050
  • - Well my favorite topic, probably at most,
  • 00:00:37.010 --> 00:00:40.250
  • is talking about the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:00:40.250 --> 00:00:42.120
  • I just love, so much, the full package of the Trinity,
  • 00:00:42.120 --> 00:00:46.070
  • and each different aspect,
  • 00:00:46.070 --> 00:00:47.230
  • and knowing God in each thing we're talking about.
  • 00:00:47.230 --> 00:00:49.270
  • You know, I think what's wild about watching people
  • 00:00:49.270 --> 00:00:52.270
  • who are believers,
  • 00:00:52.270 --> 00:00:54.040
  • but are a little nervous of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:00:54.040 --> 00:00:57.110
  • One of my favorite quotes ever is the Aslan quote of
  • 00:00:57.110 --> 00:01:02.100
  • 'he's not safe, but he's good' of the Chronicles of Narnia.
  • 00:01:03.230 --> 00:01:07.210
  • 'he's not a safe lion, but he's good' and for me,
  • 00:01:07.210 --> 00:01:11.100
  • I am definitely a person who likes everything sorted.
  • 00:01:11.100 --> 00:01:14.120
  • I like my ducks in a row, I am very organized,
  • 00:01:14.120 --> 00:01:17.080
  • and one of my biggest journeys
  • 00:01:17.080 --> 00:01:18.220
  • was being dunked in the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:01:18.220 --> 00:01:21.180
  • to lose control, to give my control to the Holy Spirit
  • 00:01:21.180 --> 00:01:26.000
  • in every aspect of my life.
  • 00:01:26.000 --> 00:01:27.160
  • And the best analogy ever that I have ever experienced was
  • 00:01:27.160 --> 00:01:31.040
  • I was in Hawaii, snorkeling one time,
  • 00:01:31.040 --> 00:01:33.160
  • and I had gotten way too far out,
  • 00:01:33.160 --> 00:01:35.240
  • and had gotten caught in the current.
  • 00:01:35.240 --> 00:01:37.170
  • And a wave had crashed over me and I was under the water,
  • 00:01:37.170 --> 00:01:40.170
  • and I don't know if you've ever been under the water
  • 00:01:40.170 --> 00:01:42.150
  • where you don't know your up from your down in the ocean,
  • 00:01:42.150 --> 00:01:44.150
  • but it is a tormenting feeling,
  • 00:01:44.150 --> 00:01:46.210
  • and you don't know in which direction to swim.
  • 00:01:46.210 --> 00:01:48.260
  • And they say the best thing to do in that lack of control,
  • 00:01:48.260 --> 00:01:53.250
  • is to totally relax and let yourself float to the top.
  • 00:01:55.090 --> 00:01:58.270
  • Because when you fight it,
  • 00:01:58.270 --> 00:01:59.260
  • you can be swimming and fighting
  • 00:01:59.260 --> 00:02:00.280
  • and going in the wrong direction.
  • 00:02:00.280 --> 00:02:02.190
  • And so, I think the best analogy for me in my life,
  • 00:02:02.190 --> 00:02:06.070
  • with the Holy Spirit is that.
  • 00:02:06.070 --> 00:02:08.260
  • It's to just relax, relinquish control,
  • 00:02:08.260 --> 00:02:12.040
  • and let the Holy Spirit guide.
  • 00:02:12.040 --> 00:02:13.250
  • And I think a lot of people, especially in worship times
  • 00:02:13.250 --> 00:02:17.120
  • or in ministry times, it can be an excuse to do whatever
  • 00:02:17.120 --> 00:02:21.120
  • and go crazy and there's no excuse for that.
  • 00:02:21.120 --> 00:02:23.210
  • I love that there is order in God,
  • 00:02:23.210 --> 00:02:26.290
  • and there is wild in God.
  • 00:02:26.290 --> 00:02:30.140
  • Even down to how we choose set list for songs,
  • 00:02:30.140 --> 00:02:33.090
  • we choose the songs we feel like God is highlighting,
  • 00:02:33.090 --> 00:02:35.280
  • but once we get there,
  • 00:02:35.280 --> 00:02:37.130
  • it's like whatever we feel like God wants us to do.
  • 00:02:37.130 --> 00:02:39.270
  • My husband has a good analogy of same with vacation;
  • 00:02:39.270 --> 00:02:42.150
  • you go on vacation, you make all your planning details,
  • 00:02:42.150 --> 00:02:44.210
  • but once you get there - you can go off script
  • 00:02:44.210 --> 00:02:48.110
  • - Yeah exactly!
  • 00:02:48.110 --> 00:02:49.230
  • And I think that's so beautiful about the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:02:49.230 --> 00:02:51.090
  • He is perfect order,
  • 00:02:51.090 --> 00:02:53.060
  • but he is perfect connection to his voice and free flow.
  • 00:02:53.060 --> 00:02:56.110
  • So, I love that.
  • 00:02:56.110 --> 00:02:59.010
  • I love order and I love the wild.
  • 00:02:59.010 --> 00:03:01.150
  • When my kids were little I used to tell them that
  • 00:03:01.150 --> 00:03:04.020
  • the Trinity is like an apple.
  • 00:03:04.020 --> 00:03:05.130
  • You've got a peel, and you've got the flesh,
  • 00:03:05.130 --> 00:03:08.070
  • and you've got the seeds, but it's all the same apple.
  • 00:03:08.070 --> 00:03:11.020
  • Just different parts, and we need all the parts.
  • 00:03:11.020 --> 00:03:14.060
  • And so that's how I see the Trinity but,
  • 00:03:14.060 --> 00:03:16.240
  • the Holy Spirit is just always so fun.
  • 00:03:16.240 --> 00:03:19.280
  • and if you really lean into the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:03:19.280 --> 00:03:23.180
  • if you submit your life,
  • 00:03:23.180 --> 00:03:25.110
  • which is a daring and brave thing to do,
  • 00:03:25.110 --> 00:03:28.080
  • just to tell him I'll do anything, I'll go anywhere,
  • 00:03:28.080 --> 00:03:31.050
  • I am whole life whole hearted submitted to you.
  • 00:03:31.050 --> 00:03:34.160
  • He will, and it could get real crazy,
  • 00:03:34.160 --> 00:03:37.020
  • and I love when it does.
  • 00:03:37.020 --> 00:03:39.260
  • - God created an ordered world.
  • 00:03:39.260 --> 00:03:42.260
  • I mean there is gravity, there is order,
  • 00:03:42.260 --> 00:03:45.020
  • there is night, there is day, there is up, there is down.
  • 00:03:45.020 --> 00:03:48.180
  • And so I find that the more structured you are,
  • 00:03:48.180 --> 00:03:52.050
  • the more spontaneous you can be.
  • 00:03:52.050 --> 00:03:53.110
  • - That's right
  • 00:03:53.110 --> 00:03:54.230
  • - And I think that's what you're saying
  • 00:03:54.230 --> 00:03:55.290
  • when we do our set list, that's what we do.
  • 00:03:55.290 --> 00:03:57.140
  • And so, I don't think about people who are like,
  • 00:03:57.140 --> 00:04:00.200
  • I wanna wake up today,
  • 00:04:00.200 --> 00:04:02.050
  • Holy Spirit do you want me to wear blue, red, or green?
  • 00:04:02.050 --> 00:04:03.240
  • I think he's like, what I want to?
  • 00:04:03.240 --> 00:04:06.010
  • It's what you want to (laughter)
  • 00:04:06.010 --> 00:04:09.110
  • I'm really like should I work?
  • 00:04:09.110 --> 00:04:10.180
  • Yes, if you don't work you don't eat.
  • 00:04:10.180 --> 00:04:12.250
  • Should I like God.
  • 00:04:12.250 --> 00:04:13.260
  • Like some people, I think, use,
  • 00:04:13.260 --> 00:04:17.110
  • and I don't know that they would really know the Holy Spirit
  • 00:04:17.110 --> 00:04:19.140
  • but the concept of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:04:19.140 --> 00:04:21.170
  • Perhaps sometimes out stream of the church.
  • 00:04:21.170 --> 00:04:24.100
  • People like man those people they just
  • 00:04:24.100 --> 00:04:26.100
  • will just throw a case around,
  • 00:04:26.100 --> 00:04:27.230
  • we'll just go with the flow, we'll just do whatever.
  • 00:04:27.230 --> 00:04:29.260
  • And I don't think the Holy Spirit in the Bible in that way.
  • 00:04:29.260 --> 00:04:34.260
  • - Don't blame that on the Holy Spirit
  • 00:04:36.190 --> 00:04:38.030
  • - Yeah don't blame that on the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:04:38.030 --> 00:04:39.120
  • blame it on your lack of discipline,
  • 00:04:39.120 --> 00:04:41.120
  • your lack of planning,
  • 00:04:41.120 --> 00:04:42.260
  • your lack of order I think even when it comes to
  • 00:04:42.260 --> 00:04:45.130
  • I need the, of course the power of the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:04:45.130 --> 00:04:47.150
  • to preach a word that is prophetic now,
  • 00:04:47.150 --> 00:04:49.230
  • for someone to say 'Chris get up there,
  • 00:04:49.230 --> 00:04:51.280
  • have a hour or two whatever' that could be pretty lazy
  • 00:04:51.280 --> 00:04:54.140
  • to do that like kinda do.
  • 00:04:54.140 --> 00:04:56.020
  • But to come up, the discipline I have to have,
  • 00:04:56.020 --> 00:04:58.190
  • the preparation I have to have,
  • 00:04:58.190 --> 00:04:59.260
  • the prayer I've had to put in,
  • 00:04:59.260 --> 00:05:01.220
  • the prophetic word I have to have,
  • 00:05:01.220 --> 00:05:03.060
  • all ahead of time to deliver word in thirty minutes,
  • 00:05:03.060 --> 00:05:06.080
  • land that plane, and work God's grace,
  • 00:05:06.080 --> 00:05:08.010
  • see people saved, delivered, healed.
  • 00:05:08.010 --> 00:05:09.250
  • It takes me so much more preparation then,
  • 00:05:11.050 --> 00:05:14.130
  • and then to be able to go totally with the flow
  • 00:05:14.130 --> 00:05:16.260
  • when I'm there.
  • 00:05:16.260 --> 00:05:18.040
  • So I think even in life the Holy Spirit gives us
  • 00:05:18.040 --> 00:05:20.180
  • power to be witnesses.
  • 00:05:20.180 --> 00:05:24.030
  • Again, not power to do witnessing.
  • 00:05:24.030 --> 00:05:26.000
  • We think I've gotta, I live like the Devil all week,
  • 00:05:26.000 --> 00:05:28.280
  • but then man I'm doing my Evangilism,
  • 00:05:28.280 --> 00:05:30.220
  • shun the hunter Kawasaki, I'm gonna go out there and...
  • 00:05:30.220 --> 00:05:33.140
  • - Was that a Kawasaki in there?
  • 00:05:33.140 --> 00:05:34.180
  • Wow
  • 00:05:34.180 --> 00:05:35.160
  • (laughter)
  • 00:05:35.160 --> 00:05:37.240
  • - And then it's like we mystify it like its only tongues.
  • 00:05:39.220 --> 00:05:44.030
  • The Holy Spirit is not eat and eat is not a tongue.
  • 00:05:44.030 --> 00:05:46.090
  • Tongues is a gift of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:05:46.090 --> 00:05:48.280
  • - So it's self control?
  • 00:05:48.280 --> 00:05:50.140
  • - So in my own life,
  • 00:05:50.140 --> 00:05:53.220
  • pretty much one of the first things I say,
  • 00:05:53.220 --> 00:05:56.080
  • still to this day, decades later,
  • 00:05:56.080 --> 00:05:58.000
  • is 'good morning Holy Spirit.
  • 00:05:58.000 --> 00:05:59.140
  • It's still my default, good morning Holy Spirit.
  • 00:05:59.140 --> 00:06:04.000
  • It's so important that we understand
  • 00:06:04.000 --> 00:06:05.130
  • that the Holy Spirit is not like
  • 00:06:05.130 --> 00:06:06.260
  • something like we catch like I caught a cold.
  • 00:06:06.260 --> 00:06:09.110
  • You don't catch a cold, catch a Holy Spirit.
  • 00:06:09.110 --> 00:06:11.170
  • When we are saved, the book of the Ephesians says,
  • 00:06:11.170 --> 00:06:14.180
  • we are sealed until that day of redemption
  • 00:06:14.180 --> 00:06:18.000
  • with the Holy Spirit of God.
  • 00:06:18.000 --> 00:06:19.290
  • He is our seal so when we are born again,
  • 00:06:19.290 --> 00:06:23.040
  • we're actually a spirit filled,
  • 00:06:23.040 --> 00:06:24.270
  • we are sealed with the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:06:24.270 --> 00:06:26.270
  • It's just that a lot of Christians,
  • 00:06:26.270 --> 00:06:28.230
  • walk around life,
  • 00:06:28.230 --> 00:06:30.270
  • not understanding the power
  • 00:06:30.270 --> 00:06:32.260
  • that God has put on the inside of them.
  • 00:06:32.260 --> 00:06:35.000
  • The power of the Holy Ghost on the inside of us.
  • 00:06:35.000 --> 00:06:38.190
  • So one of my great passions, is to awaken people,
  • 00:06:38.190 --> 00:06:42.090
  • to what's already within us.
  • 00:06:42.090 --> 00:06:44.170
  • The Holy Spirit, he is within us,
  • 00:06:44.170 --> 00:06:47.210
  • and he gives us the power to be witnesses.
  • 00:06:47.210 --> 00:06:50.020
  • So it's not like something you catch,
  • 00:06:50.020 --> 00:06:52.230
  • as much as summon what abides in us.
  • 00:06:52.230 --> 00:06:55.080
  • You and I are the temple of the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:06:55.080 --> 00:06:59.280
  • that he dwells in us,
  • 00:06:59.280 --> 00:07:03.040
  • the goal is to get the power of the Holy Spirit that's in us
  • 00:07:03.040 --> 00:07:06.270
  • to flow through us to transform the world around us.
  • 00:07:06.270 --> 00:07:10.020
  • So the way I like to this in a very practical way,
  • 00:07:10.020 --> 00:07:13.110
  • is every morning when I wake up,
  • 00:07:13.110 --> 00:07:14.250
  • I love to say out loud, in my bed,
  • 00:07:14.250 --> 00:07:17.080
  • out loud 'good morning Holy Spirit.'
  • 00:07:17.080 --> 00:07:20.130
  • So I am consciously awake from the minute I wake up,
  • 00:07:20.130 --> 00:07:23.250
  • I'm conscious.
  • 00:07:23.250 --> 00:07:25.080
  • The Holy Spirit, he is in me, he is with me,
  • 00:07:25.080 --> 00:07:27.250
  • he is around me, he is empowering me to do
  • 00:07:27.250 --> 00:07:31.120
  • what I've been called to do on the Earth.
  • 00:07:31.120 --> 00:07:32.200
  • I don't need to do it by myself,
  • 00:07:32.200 --> 00:07:34.230
  • I've got the power of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:07:34.230 --> 00:07:37.040
  • To try to demystify that it's a Holy Ghost not a weird ghost
  • 00:07:37.040 --> 00:07:41.210
  • it's not Casper the ghost.
  • 00:07:41.210 --> 00:07:44.070
  • He's the Holy Spirit of God and so,
  • 00:07:44.070 --> 00:07:47.070
  • I think the people that are not accustomed
  • 00:07:47.070 --> 00:07:49.190
  • to the third power of the Trinity,
  • 00:07:49.190 --> 00:07:51.130
  • they either think he's Casper the Friendly Ghost or
  • 00:07:51.130 --> 00:07:54.030
  • the weird ghost and I'm like it's none of that.
  • 00:07:54.030 --> 00:07:56.270
  • Christians haven't helped in some of that in any way.
  • 00:07:56.270 --> 00:07:58.260
  • Like, some charismatic Christians definitely,
  • 00:07:58.260 --> 00:08:01.000
  • but I think to understand that he gives me the power
  • 00:08:01.000 --> 00:08:03.130
  • to be a witness, so what does that mean?
  • 00:08:03.130 --> 00:08:05.140
  • It means, maybe in chaotic circumstances,
  • 00:08:05.140 --> 00:08:07.290
  • he'll give me the power to hold my peace,
  • 00:08:07.290 --> 00:08:09.160
  • when everyone else is losing their peace.
  • 00:08:09.160 --> 00:08:11.120
  • The power to bring joy into what could be maybe not.
  • 00:08:11.120 --> 00:08:15.040
  • To have love in a hate filled environment.
  • 00:08:15.040 --> 00:08:18.090
  • To be self-controlled when everyone is out of control.
  • 00:08:18.090 --> 00:08:20.080
  • To be whatever the difficulty to be good.
  • 00:08:20.080 --> 00:08:23.020
  • He's our comforter, our healer.
  • 00:08:23.020 --> 00:08:25.000
  • So understanding what his attributes are,
  • 00:08:25.000 --> 00:08:27.100
  • he can teach me all things, we have no idea,
  • 00:08:27.100 --> 00:08:31.050
  • what he gives us the power to do,
  • 00:08:31.050 --> 00:08:32.190
  • and it's to be witnesses, not to be weird.
  • 00:08:32.190 --> 00:08:35.170
  • And I think we have to really clarify that
  • 00:08:35.170 --> 00:08:37.050
  • because I think some streams have taken it as
  • 00:08:37.050 --> 00:08:40.290
  • permission to be weird rather than power to be a witness.
  • 00:08:40.290 --> 00:08:44.240
  • - Yeah well they take the scripture
  • 00:08:44.240 --> 00:08:46.170
  • that in acts the people looking upon them
  • 00:08:46.170 --> 00:08:50.170
  • and they're speaking in all different languages
  • 00:08:50.170 --> 00:08:52.130
  • and you know Peter saying 'they're not drunk as you suppose'
  • 00:08:52.130 --> 00:08:56.110
  • and honestly I think just that.
  • 00:08:56.110 --> 00:08:59.070
  • Because I grew up in a little bit of that
  • 00:08:59.070 --> 00:09:01.000
  • where yeah and it's like well yes,
  • 00:09:01.000 --> 00:09:04.250
  • they may look like drunk, you know these are drunk
  • 00:09:04.250 --> 00:09:08.150
  • but now we don't act like drunk people.
  • 00:09:08.150 --> 00:09:11.210
  • Now I have been, and by the power of God, I love it,
  • 00:09:13.030 --> 00:09:16.040
  • but the fruit needs to speak after the touch of God.
  • 00:09:16.040 --> 00:09:21.040
  • So I watch some people get under this Holy Spirit.
  • 00:09:22.170 --> 00:09:25.110
  • This is why I love it how the enemy works
  • 00:09:25.110 --> 00:09:28.130
  • to make it weird so then people shy away from it.
  • 00:09:28.130 --> 00:09:30.260
  • And so then I go oh I don't want any part of it.
  • 00:09:32.080 --> 00:09:34.140
  • But I've seen the Holy Spirit do a work in my life,
  • 00:09:34.140 --> 00:09:37.070
  • but the fruit of it comes with the fruit of the Spirit.
  • 00:09:37.070 --> 00:09:39.160
  • There has to be love, joy, peace, patience, self control,
  • 00:09:39.160 --> 00:09:43.070
  • all of those things.
  • 00:09:43.070 --> 00:09:44.200
  • But when I see people going more after a man with
  • 00:09:44.200 --> 00:09:47.090
  • a manifestation of the Holy Spirit
  • 00:09:47.090 --> 00:09:49.090
  • but their life isn't in order, changed, and healthy
  • 00:09:49.090 --> 00:09:52.130
  • then I have to go, is that the real Holy Spirit?
  • 00:09:52.130 --> 00:09:55.040
  • Because I think the Holy Spirit is a person
  • 00:09:55.040 --> 00:09:56.230
  • he is powerful, but he is the breath of God,
  • 00:09:56.230 --> 00:09:58.260
  • the spirit of God,
  • 00:09:58.260 --> 00:10:00.080
  • and he does move in ways we don't understand.
  • 00:10:00.080 --> 00:10:02.250
  • And I never want to put the Holy Spirit in a box
  • 00:10:02.250 --> 00:10:04.180
  • and go this is how he moves.
  • 00:10:04.180 --> 00:10:06.110
  • Because he can totally shock me but,
  • 00:10:06.110 --> 00:10:09.220
  • I think we need to understand the power of the person.
  • 00:10:09.220 --> 00:10:12.240
  • - And then he produces his fruit in us
  • 00:10:12.240 --> 00:10:15.160
  • and if the fruit gives non fruit
  • 00:10:15.160 --> 00:10:19.130
  • if the fruit is not there then,
  • 00:10:19.130 --> 00:10:22.050
  • I think you've got to seriously ask yourself some questions.
  • 00:10:22.050 --> 00:10:25.060
  • - And it's so many things, it's shocking to me
  • 00:10:25.060 --> 00:10:27.010
  • because when you hear the things like oh that's crazy
  • 00:10:27.010 --> 00:10:29.270
  • or that's weird,
  • 00:10:29.270 --> 00:10:31.100
  • and there are some things that are out there.
  • 00:10:31.100 --> 00:10:33.020
  • But it is shocking to me how
  • 00:10:33.020 --> 00:10:35.160
  • do you read your bible?
  • 00:10:35.160 --> 00:10:37.210
  • There was a pilar of fire!
  • 00:10:37.210 --> 00:10:40.180
  • If there was right now, in this gathering,
  • 00:10:40.180 --> 00:10:42.200
  • a pilar of fire we would get some emails,
  • 00:10:42.200 --> 00:10:45.040
  • we would get written off, we would be cray cray
  • 00:10:45.040 --> 00:10:47.250
  • as Christine says and the point is,
  • 00:10:47.250 --> 00:10:50.080
  • who's not reading their bible because this stuff happened.
  • 00:10:50.080 --> 00:10:53.180
  • I mean, the Lord would tell people to do crazy,
  • 00:10:53.180 --> 00:10:57.170
  • embarrassing things.
  • 00:10:57.170 --> 00:10:59.180
  • Build a boat, there's no rain, build a boat.
  • 00:10:59.180 --> 00:11:02.040
  • That man looked mad out of his mind!
  • 00:11:02.040 --> 00:11:05.080
  • - Then it started to rain girl exactly!
  • 00:11:05.080 --> 00:11:07.180
  • And so the Holy Spirit is gonna lead you to do things
  • 00:11:07.180 --> 00:11:10.170
  • that are crazy.
  • 00:11:10.170 --> 00:11:11.240
  • Now, I do think being accountable,
  • 00:11:11.240 --> 00:11:13.140
  • being in relationships, iron sharpens iron,
  • 00:11:13.140 --> 00:11:16.070
  • when you are going after God in big ways,
  • 00:11:16.070 --> 00:11:18.200
  • you wanna have people in your life
  • 00:11:18.200 --> 00:11:20.070
  • to help you and strengthen you.
  • 00:11:20.070 --> 00:11:22.020
  • But it's not gonna be odd
  • 00:11:22.020 --> 00:11:23.270
  • for God to tell you to do crazy radical things.
  • 00:11:23.270 --> 00:11:27.130
  • And I think a lot of what we've gotten to accustomed to is
  • 00:11:27.130 --> 00:11:29.160
  • if it doesn't fit in this box,
  • 00:11:29.160 --> 00:11:30.280
  • and oh God can heal people, and God can do this.
  • 00:11:30.280 --> 00:11:32.220
  • But a pilar of fire oh then you're gonna be crazy.
  • 00:11:32.220 --> 00:11:35.150
  • I'm like open the book because my bible says,
  • 00:11:35.150 --> 00:11:37.260
  • greater things will you do than even what's in this book
  • 00:11:37.260 --> 00:11:40.290
  • and I haven't seen a pilar of fire lately,
  • 00:11:40.290 --> 00:11:42.190
  • so we've only scratched the surface.
  • 00:11:42.190 --> 00:11:44.130
  • - Bring it on, come on!
  • 00:11:44.130 --> 00:11:46.040
  • - I was reading this morning about the quickening
  • 00:11:46.040 --> 00:11:50.160
  • and I think in our daily lives,
  • 00:11:50.160 --> 00:11:53.070
  • the Lord can quicken and,
  • 00:11:53.070 --> 00:11:54.220
  • a definition of quick is to resurrect.
  • 00:11:54.220 --> 00:11:57.190
  • You know, something inside.
  • 00:11:58.190 --> 00:12:00.050
  • And I think that can happen through our daily lives.
  • 00:12:00.050 --> 00:12:02.210
  • To have that quickening of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
  • 00:12:02.210 --> 00:12:06.220
  • And it can be real to everybody, not just for some.
  • 00:12:06.220 --> 00:12:11.150
  • It's really all of God's children.
  • 00:12:11.150 --> 00:12:14.090
  • - [Female Announcer] We want you to join the conversation.
  • 00:12:14.090 --> 00:12:14.100
  • - [Female Announcer] We want you to join the conversation.
  • 00:12:15.160 --> 00:12:16.040
  • Follow us on social media and let's get Better Together.
  • 00:12:16.220 --> 00:12:18.290
  • - It still always has to be aligned with mission,
  • 00:12:23.110 --> 00:12:27.040
  • because Jesus said I'm going
  • 00:12:27.040 --> 00:12:29.130
  • so that the Holy Spirit can come in
  • 00:12:29.130 --> 00:12:31.130
  • and use his power to be witnesses.
  • 00:12:31.130 --> 00:12:33.110
  • We are called to do that, so when you disconnect it
  • 00:12:35.120 --> 00:12:37.260
  • and make it a little biscuit club
  • 00:12:37.260 --> 00:12:39.170
  • so we can have weak manifestations in a room
  • 00:12:39.170 --> 00:12:41.250
  • and impress each other, that was never the purpose of what
  • 00:12:41.250 --> 00:12:44.160
  • he gives us the power to be a witness out there.
  • 00:12:44.160 --> 00:12:47.070
  • So that means, I believe,
  • 00:12:47.070 --> 00:12:49.000
  • I 21 is totally lit by the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:12:49.000 --> 00:12:51.240
  • The favor we have with governments,
  • 00:12:51.240 --> 00:12:53.140
  • the favor we have with law enforcement,
  • 00:12:53.140 --> 00:12:55.200
  • the amount of traffickers that are caught,
  • 00:12:55.200 --> 00:12:58.110
  • and found, and prosecuted,
  • 00:12:58.110 --> 00:13:00.230
  • the amount of cold cases that have gone our way,
  • 00:13:00.230 --> 00:13:02.130
  • supernatural.
  • 00:13:02.130 --> 00:13:03.190
  • It's not a pre-setup, that to me is awe,
  • 00:13:03.190 --> 00:13:07.010
  • it might as well be a pillar of fire.
  • 00:13:07.010 --> 00:13:08.140
  • I don't need a pilar of fire,
  • 00:13:08.140 --> 00:13:09.190
  • I need a trafficker to go to jail,
  • 00:13:09.190 --> 00:13:10.260
  • and I need a girl to be restored.
  • 00:13:10.260 --> 00:13:12.080
  • I need a girl to be found,
  • 00:13:12.080 --> 00:13:13.090
  • so I think it's
  • 00:13:13.090 --> 00:13:15.110
  • sometimes if we're looking too much
  • 00:13:15.110 --> 00:13:18.070
  • for unusual manifestations,
  • 00:13:18.070 --> 00:13:20.040
  • we miss the supernatural empowerment
  • 00:13:20.040 --> 00:13:22.140
  • in our normal everyday lives.
  • 00:13:22.140 --> 00:13:24.030
  • So we go chasing that,
  • 00:13:24.030 --> 00:13:25.250
  • rather than going, hold on a minute.
  • 00:13:25.250 --> 00:13:27.050
  • You're sitting at home, watching this today,
  • 00:13:27.050 --> 00:13:29.120
  • you need the power of god and the power of the Holy Spirit.
  • 00:13:29.120 --> 00:13:33.020
  • - To keep your kids alive.
  • 00:13:33.020 --> 00:13:34.170
  • - It keeps you in order to be the wife you need to be,
  • 00:13:34.170 --> 00:13:36.140
  • if you're married, or to be the mother.
  • 00:13:36.140 --> 00:13:37.280
  • And I think bringing the power of the Holy Spirit
  • 00:13:37.280 --> 00:13:40.260
  • into our normal everyday lives
  • 00:13:40.260 --> 00:13:42.180
  • is what is going to empower us to really be his witnesses.
  • 00:13:42.180 --> 00:13:47.180
  • To produce the fruit of the Spirit and increase our faith
  • 00:13:49.010 --> 00:13:52.170
  • to believe even greater manifestations.
  • 00:13:53.200 --> 00:13:56.230
  • - Yeah the Holy Spirit works in our lives
  • 00:13:56.230 --> 00:13:58.270
  • by producing the fruits of the Spirit.
  • 00:13:58.270 --> 00:14:00.270
  • So when you look at those nine fruits,
  • 00:14:02.020 --> 00:14:04.050
  • those like love, joy, peace, kindness, goodness,
  • 00:14:04.050 --> 00:14:07.170
  • faitfulness, self-control.
  • 00:14:07.170 --> 00:14:08.270
  • So you got all these fruits of the Spirit.
  • 00:14:08.270 --> 00:14:11.180
  • When we get saved,
  • 00:14:11.180 --> 00:14:13.050
  • we're received by the Father Son Holy Spirit inside of us.
  • 00:14:13.050 --> 00:14:16.140
  • And so now what that Holy Spirit function is,
  • 00:14:16.140 --> 00:14:20.000
  • is to produce us to become more like Christ.
  • 00:14:20.000 --> 00:14:24.040
  • And so we're growing from glory to glory.
  • 00:14:24.040 --> 00:14:26.150
  • And so what's happening,
  • 00:14:26.150 --> 00:14:27.250
  • you get that little check in your spirit
  • 00:14:27.250 --> 00:14:30.000
  • going nuh uh, don't do that, don't say that.
  • 00:14:30.000 --> 00:14:32.130
  • That's the Spirit of truth, bringing you into alignment,
  • 00:14:32.130 --> 00:14:36.110
  • and making you more like Christ.
  • 00:14:36.110 --> 00:14:38.010
  • When you wanna get mad,
  • 00:14:38.010 --> 00:14:39.090
  • you get that five second check of don't do that.
  • 00:14:39.090 --> 00:14:42.070
  • We've gotta learn to tune into that voice,
  • 00:14:42.070 --> 00:14:45.140
  • that's arresting us to actually shift from our old nature,
  • 00:14:45.140 --> 00:14:50.140
  • because that's dead when we got saved,
  • 00:14:51.190 --> 00:14:53.050
  • so now we're moving into sanctification,
  • 00:14:53.050 --> 00:14:55.120
  • which is growing in our new nature.
  • 00:14:55.120 --> 00:14:57.250
  • And that's what the Holy Spirit helps us do.
  • 00:14:57.250 --> 00:15:00.020
  • So I know when a person is being shaped
  • 00:15:00.020 --> 00:15:03.000
  • and developed by the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:15:03.000 --> 00:15:04.120
  • their life is changing .
  • 00:15:04.120 --> 00:15:05.270
  • No longer are they mean, short-tempered, angry.
  • 00:15:05.270 --> 00:15:08.270
  • They're kind, they're patient, no longer suffering.
  • 00:15:08.270 --> 00:15:11.280
  • And so that's how we know that the Holy Spirit
  • 00:15:11.280 --> 00:15:14.050
  • is working in our lives.
  • 00:15:14.050 --> 00:15:15.210
  • - I want the world to see that
  • 00:15:15.270 --> 00:15:17.260
  • the power of God is holding my marriage together,
  • 00:15:17.260 --> 00:15:20.090
  • my children together,
  • 00:15:20.090 --> 00:15:21.210
  • that I can have the fruit of the Spirit
  • 00:15:21.210 --> 00:15:23.090
  • in the midst of a chaotic world.
  • 00:15:23.090 --> 00:15:25.190
  • And out of that, and the supernatural, science, wonders,
  • 00:15:25.190 --> 00:15:29.220
  • miracles, healing, are just an outflow of everything else.
  • 00:15:29.220 --> 00:15:33.250
  • - So what does that look like for you?
  • 00:15:33.250 --> 00:15:36.070
  • When you're at home with your girls?
  • 00:15:36.070 --> 00:15:39.110
  • How do you hear the voice of the Lord?
  • 00:15:39.110 --> 00:15:41.030
  • When you're there?
  • 00:15:41.030 --> 00:15:42.190
  • how can you hear the Holy Spirit lead and guide you?
  • 00:15:42.190 --> 00:15:43.190
  • - I think just like, you know,
  • 00:15:43.190 --> 00:15:45.070
  • God's breath was attracted to the darkness, the void
  • 00:15:45.070 --> 00:15:48.220
  • the world in the beginning.
  • 00:15:48.220 --> 00:15:50.050
  • He's still attracted, the breath of God is still attracted
  • 00:15:50.050 --> 00:15:52.250
  • to the void and darkness of any situation.
  • 00:15:52.250 --> 00:15:56.160
  • So when the girls were young,
  • 00:15:56.160 --> 00:15:59.110
  • I was going through post partum depression, all of that.
  • 00:15:59.110 --> 00:16:02.110
  • And so I felt the closeness of God
  • 00:16:02.110 --> 00:16:05.040
  • even during those times.
  • 00:16:05.040 --> 00:16:07.140
  • And his breath would kind of lead
  • 00:16:07.140 --> 00:16:10.280
  • and guide me with the girls.
  • 00:16:10.280 --> 00:16:13.090
  • Setting into place a health regimen
  • 00:16:13.090 --> 00:16:16.070
  • for me to dig myself out of.
  • 00:16:16.070 --> 00:16:18.070
  • - Good, that's very good
  • 00:16:18.070 --> 00:16:19.240
  • - That place where it felt so dark and chaotic.
  • 00:16:19.240 --> 00:16:23.080
  • To even listening to his voice when he was prompting me
  • 00:16:23.080 --> 00:16:27.150
  • hey let's start scheduling some days
  • 00:16:27.150 --> 00:16:29.220
  • so you're not crashing in the middle of the day.
  • 00:16:29.220 --> 00:16:32.200
  • Practically, this is the type of curriculum
  • 00:16:33.250 --> 00:16:37.030
  • that you're gonna use if you're gonna homeschool the girls.
  • 00:16:37.030 --> 00:16:39.220
  • Try this, build upon this, listen to me in this,
  • 00:16:39.220 --> 00:16:43.080
  • and I felt like the Lord has really helped me
  • 00:16:43.080 --> 00:16:46.130
  • to listen to his voice, listen to his leading,
  • 00:16:46.130 --> 00:16:49.280
  • the impulse, the guide, the little tap on the shoulder.
  • 00:16:49.280 --> 00:16:53.170
  • Hey I want you to pay attention to how she's living
  • 00:16:53.170 --> 00:16:56.120
  • model that in her life.
  • 00:16:56.120 --> 00:16:58.160
  • I want you to pay attention to
  • 00:16:58.160 --> 00:16:59.290
  • what this woman of God is saying as she's praying for you.
  • 00:16:59.290 --> 00:17:03.140
  • Those are kinda like the layer
  • 00:17:03.140 --> 00:17:06.020
  • where the breath of God has guided me with the girls.
  • 00:17:06.020 --> 00:17:09.100
  • And like I said before, the girls are modeling that.
  • 00:17:09.100 --> 00:17:13.130
  • Because of my example and it's not always in the flowery.
  • 00:17:13.130 --> 00:17:17.030
  • You can have the Holy Spirit and yet not tame the tongue.
  • 00:17:17.030 --> 00:17:20.140
  • Where's the fruit in that?
  • 00:17:20.140 --> 00:17:21.250
  • You know, let's talk about that.
  • 00:17:21.250 --> 00:17:23.260
  • I think often times, our soul begins to tap on the shoulder
  • 00:17:23.260 --> 00:17:28.050
  • of the Holy Spirit and all of a sudden,
  • 00:17:28.050 --> 00:17:29.260
  • from Monday through Saturday, you know,
  • 00:17:29.260 --> 00:17:32.110
  • it's la vida loca most of the time.
  • 00:17:32.110 --> 00:17:34.180
  • It's like, you know, the body or the soul
  • 00:17:34.180 --> 00:17:36.190
  • wants to sit in the drivers seat
  • 00:17:36.190 --> 00:17:38.060
  • and tell our lives what to do so there's no control,
  • 00:17:38.060 --> 00:17:42.220
  • there's no filter.
  • 00:17:42.220 --> 00:17:44.100
  • We can say that we love God, you know,
  • 00:17:44.100 --> 00:17:47.080
  • on Sunday go to church, show up, raise our hand,
  • 00:17:47.080 --> 00:17:50.120
  • you know say that we love Jesus.
  • 00:17:50.120 --> 00:17:52.230
  • But Monday through Saturday we feel like failures
  • 00:17:52.230 --> 00:17:55.070
  • because we don't allow the Holy Spirit
  • 00:17:55.070 --> 00:17:57.240
  • to drive the course of our life.
  • 00:17:57.240 --> 00:17:59.290
  • And so he's sitting in the backseat,
  • 00:17:59.290 --> 00:18:02.020
  • waiting for you to give up, and not move in your impulses.
  • 00:18:02.020 --> 00:18:07.020
  • When really he wants to take the driver seat
  • 00:18:08.180 --> 00:18:10.170
  • and move the course of our lives.
  • 00:18:10.170 --> 00:18:13.130
  • And so, if we don't let him guide us
  • 00:18:13.130 --> 00:18:16.270
  • or shape us or drive the course of our life,
  • 00:18:16.270 --> 00:18:19.240
  • then, you know, things will go crazy.
  • 00:18:19.240 --> 00:18:22.100
  • Like our mouth, we can't tame our mouth.
  • 00:18:22.100 --> 00:18:25.270
  • And most people, we say we love God, yet
  • 00:18:25.270 --> 00:18:28.160
  • we're impatient, we gossip, we're rude, we're malicious,
  • 00:18:28.160 --> 00:18:33.100
  • we yell at our kids, and then on Sunday we feel guilty.
  • 00:18:33.100 --> 00:18:37.230
  • Then we come to, instead of worshiping God,
  • 00:18:37.230 --> 00:18:40.080
  • we come to kind of a clean our slate
  • 00:18:40.080 --> 00:18:42.150
  • and have him take the wheel again and so the cycle,
  • 00:18:42.150 --> 00:18:45.230
  • the crazy cycle, continues.
  • 00:18:45.230 --> 00:18:47.210
  • And that's not always a healthy picture.
  • 00:18:47.210 --> 00:18:49.210
  • - Sheila from Huntsville said,
  • 00:18:51.000 --> 00:18:52.270
  • 'it's very hard for me to stay disciplined,
  • 00:18:52.270 --> 00:18:54.250
  • when I'm trying to reach my goals,
  • 00:18:54.250 --> 00:18:56.290
  • why is it so easy for me to get distracted,
  • 00:18:56.290 --> 00:18:59.110
  • and what should I do?
  • 00:18:59.110 --> 00:19:01.040
  • So Sheila, it's not just easy for you to get distracted.
  • 00:19:01.040 --> 00:19:04.240
  • Everyone of us can easily get distracted.
  • 00:19:04.240 --> 00:19:08.080
  • I think in the day and age that we are living,
  • 00:19:08.080 --> 00:19:11.030
  • all of us can get distracted.
  • 00:19:11.030 --> 00:19:12.180
  • So, I found in my own life, that if I got some goals,
  • 00:19:12.180 --> 00:19:16.210
  • some very serious goals.
  • 00:19:16.210 --> 00:19:17.200
  • Whether they're career goals or
  • 00:19:17.200 --> 00:19:20.120
  • just health and fitness goals,
  • 00:19:20.120 --> 00:19:22.030
  • I have to make a decision,
  • 00:19:22.030 --> 00:19:23.230
  • that I'm basically gonna shut off every other option.
  • 00:19:23.230 --> 00:19:26.060
  • And so you have to have some good people around you
  • 00:19:26.060 --> 00:19:29.100
  • that are gonna hold you accountable to your goals.
  • 00:19:29.100 --> 00:19:31.270
  • And then you're gonna have to silence every other voice.
  • 00:19:31.270 --> 00:19:34.180
  • So whether that might mean
  • 00:19:34.180 --> 00:19:36.070
  • taking social media off your phone,
  • 00:19:36.070 --> 00:19:39.040
  • limiting how many texts you do,
  • 00:19:39.040 --> 00:19:41.230
  • maybe if you've decided to get healthy,
  • 00:19:41.230 --> 00:19:43.180
  • get rid of some of the sugar
  • 00:19:43.180 --> 00:19:44.250
  • that you're gonna be easily tempted by.
  • 00:19:44.250 --> 00:19:47.100
  • You've got to proactively do some things
  • 00:19:47.100 --> 00:19:49.200
  • to remove distractions, so you can remain on course.
  • 00:19:49.200 --> 00:19:53.150
  • - I agree
  • 00:19:53.150 --> 00:19:55.120
  • - There you go.
  • 00:19:55.120 --> 00:19:56.280
  • - The thing I love about this show and what makes it unique,
  • 00:19:56.280 --> 00:20:00.000
  • is that we've got so many personalities
  • 00:20:00.000 --> 00:20:03.010
  • that are diverse and quite powerful women
  • 00:20:03.010 --> 00:20:07.010
  • in their own right.
  • 00:20:07.010 --> 00:20:08.150
  • But we've all come together on a level playing field
  • 00:20:08.150 --> 00:20:10.250
  • sharing our hearts, giving real life issues,
  • 00:20:10.250 --> 00:20:14.030
  • but with biblical foundation.
  • 00:20:14.030 --> 00:20:17.070
  • It's funny, you'll end up crying, laughing,
  • 00:20:17.070 --> 00:20:21.010
  • and you actually learn something.
  • 00:20:21.010 --> 00:20:22.190
  • And I just think it gives a whole gamut
  • 00:20:22.190 --> 00:20:25.040
  • of things you're gonna take away
  • 00:20:25.040 --> 00:20:27.220
  • whether if you're young or old,
  • 00:20:27.220 --> 00:20:29.240
  • you're a believer or non believer.
  • 00:20:29.240 --> 00:20:32.120
  • I think it's gonna appeal to the secular and the sacred.
  • 00:20:32.120 --> 00:20:35.140
  • And that's what makes it thrilling.
  • 00:20:35.140 --> 00:20:37.290
  • - [Female Announcer] Have you missed an episode
  • 00:20:37.290 --> 00:20:38.270
  • of Better Together?
  • 00:20:38.270 --> 00:20:40.130
  • You can download the TBN app to stream the latest episodes.
  • 00:20:40.130 --> 00:20:43.040
  • - Oral Roberts told a story about
  • 00:20:47.180 --> 00:20:51.010
  • at the beginning of his ministry
  • 00:20:51.010 --> 00:20:52.160
  • where God had told him the healing ministry and all that.
  • 00:20:52.160 --> 00:20:55.240
  • And he said to God 'well God
  • 00:20:55.240 --> 00:20:58.190
  • I think I want a face to face with Jesus.'
  • 00:20:58.190 --> 00:21:01.220
  • If your calling me to do what I think I'm supposed to do,
  • 00:21:03.150 --> 00:21:06.240
  • then give me an encounter with the Lord.
  • 00:21:06.240 --> 00:21:11.120
  • He said that just God spoke to his heart
  • 00:21:13.190 --> 00:21:17.020
  • and he said 'well if I gave you a plate
  • 00:21:17.020 --> 00:21:20.000
  • of all these beautiful vegetables
  • 00:21:20.000 --> 00:21:22.120
  • and things that would nourish you,
  • 00:21:22.120 --> 00:21:24.110
  • is it gonna nourish you looking at it?
  • 00:21:24.110 --> 00:21:27.040
  • Or if you ingest it and consume it?
  • 00:21:27.040 --> 00:21:29.270
  • Is it better?'
  • 00:21:29.270 --> 00:21:31.090
  • And that was the Holy Spirit,
  • 00:21:31.090 --> 00:21:32.240
  • I have given you the Holy Spirit inside of you.
  • 00:21:32.240 --> 00:21:36.050
  • And I know that hearing the voice of God
  • 00:21:36.050 --> 00:21:39.010
  • and God speaking to us can sound so strange
  • 00:21:39.010 --> 00:21:42.100
  • and so foreign to people.
  • 00:21:42.100 --> 00:21:45.260
  • And they used to go, well I've never heard God's voice.
  • 00:21:45.260 --> 00:21:49.020
  • But normally it's just in, there's an amazing book
  • 00:21:49.020 --> 00:21:52.180
  • by Mark Batterson.
  • 00:21:52.180 --> 00:21:53.260
  • - I was just gonna say that! 'Whisper'
  • 00:21:53.260 --> 00:21:55.230
  • I just started it! - oh its just amazing!
  • 00:21:55.230 --> 00:21:58.250
  • - I know and I love it but, you know,
  • 00:21:58.250 --> 00:22:03.180
  • God can get our attention anyway
  • 00:22:03.180 --> 00:22:05.140
  • he can shoot the lightning, he can do the thunder,
  • 00:22:05.140 --> 00:22:08.160
  • he can do whatever he wants to do.
  • 00:22:08.160 --> 00:22:10.260
  • But normally it's in that still small voice.
  • 00:22:10.260 --> 00:22:13.110
  • And in that whisper that makes you lean in.
  • 00:22:13.110 --> 00:22:16.020
  • Because you know if you start whispering
  • 00:22:17.080 --> 00:22:18.150
  • (whispering) to somebody like this
  • 00:22:18.150 --> 00:22:19.290
  • - I'm gonna come all the way in.
  • 00:22:19.290 --> 00:22:21.000
  • (laughter)
  • 00:22:21.000 --> 00:22:22.250
  • - You're gonna get close enough for me to hug.
  • 00:22:22.250 --> 00:22:23.230
  • - No please, better alone
  • 00:22:23.230 --> 00:22:27.040
  • (laughter)
  • 00:22:27.040 --> 00:22:29.110
  • - A normal person wants a hug, you know?
  • 00:22:30.200 --> 00:22:32.240
  • And so we tend to lean in to the whispers
  • 00:22:32.240 --> 00:22:36.120
  • and I think that's what God loves to do.
  • 00:22:36.120 --> 00:22:38.150
  • He loves to whisper that stuff.
  • 00:22:38.150 --> 00:22:40.150
  • So it can be just that little still small voice inside.
  • 00:22:40.150 --> 00:22:43.120
  • - I think that when you are just
  • 00:22:43.120 --> 00:22:45.210
  • open and honest with God, just tell him your heart,
  • 00:22:47.050 --> 00:22:51.000
  • tell him your desires, he loves that.
  • 00:22:51.000 --> 00:22:53.110
  • And is just ready and willing to meet you
  • 00:22:53.110 --> 00:22:56.040
  • and to pour even more abundantly on your life
  • 00:22:56.040 --> 00:22:59.210
  • than you've ever dreamed, and I am living proof of that.
  • 00:22:59.210 --> 00:23:02.160
  • I have loved God my whole life,
  • 00:23:02.160 --> 00:23:03.230
  • but I never dreamed in a million years
  • 00:23:03.230 --> 00:23:05.160
  • that he would do what he's done in and through my life.
  • 00:23:05.160 --> 00:23:09.070
  • And that's the story and the prophecy for everyone,
  • 00:23:09.070 --> 00:23:12.140
  • is that when you submit your whole life to God man,
  • 00:23:12.140 --> 00:23:14.220
  • he will just take you beyond your wildest dreams,
  • 00:23:14.220 --> 00:23:18.060
  • he really will.
  • 00:23:18.060 --> 00:23:19.200
  • And maybe that's you today, that you're hungering for that,
  • 00:23:19.200 --> 00:23:22.170
  • so you know Lord I pray right now.
  • 00:23:22.170 --> 00:23:25.060
  • That for people who are just hungering for more of you God,
  • 00:23:25.060 --> 00:23:27.290
  • that you will pour out your spirit on them
  • 00:23:27.290 --> 00:23:30.150
  • and that they will just know you,
  • 00:23:30.150 --> 00:23:32.160
  • and that they will just experience you in your fullness,
  • 00:23:32.160 --> 00:23:34.260
  • letting your word and by your voice
  • 00:23:34.260 --> 00:23:37.150
  • that you just guide them and speak to them Lord.
  • 00:23:37.150 --> 00:23:40.170
  • I pray that you just show them yourself,
  • 00:23:40.170 --> 00:23:42.120
  • you just surprise them and just for the fun of God,
  • 00:23:42.120 --> 00:23:45.000
  • just how joyful you are.
  • 00:23:45.000 --> 00:23:46.140
  • Lord I pray that joy which in increasing people's lives,
  • 00:23:46.140 --> 00:23:49.260
  • it will just be a wild ride with you God,
  • 00:23:49.260 --> 00:23:52.200
  • but it's so fun and we just love you so much.
  • 00:23:52.200 --> 00:23:55.160

  • 00:23:59.150 --> 00:24:01.140
  • - I love my girlfriends on set today.
  • 00:24:02.290 --> 00:24:05.000
  • My Italian sister from Australia, Alex,
  • 00:24:05.000 --> 00:24:08.170
  • we were a little bit naughty,
  • 00:24:08.170 --> 00:24:09.240
  • but that was the Australian side of us.
  • 00:24:09.240 --> 00:24:12.050
  • My buddy Jenn Johnson,
  • 00:24:12.050 --> 00:24:13.250
  • I really did teach her everything she knows about singing.
  • 00:24:13.250 --> 00:24:16.210
  • And of course my friend Laurie.
  • 00:24:16.210 --> 00:24:18.170
  • I think she just inter seeds in the spirit
  • 00:24:18.170 --> 00:24:20.100
  • the whole time when I come on the set.
  • 00:24:20.100 --> 00:24:22.020
  • And my friend Dianna, we need her for her maturity
  • 00:24:22.020 --> 00:24:25.220
  • because someone on this set has got to be mature.
  • 00:24:25.220 --> 00:24:28.200
  • - [Female Announcer] Here's what's coming up next week,

  • - I believe that being a mom was a privilege.
  • 00:24:32.180 --> 00:24:35.110
  • It's like God privileged me
  • 00:24:36.200 --> 00:24:39.010
  • to raise three beautiful children,
  • 00:24:39.010 --> 00:24:42.030
  • to be a steward over them.
  • 00:24:42.030 --> 00:24:44.120
