  • PLEASE STOP BY AND BE A PART
  • 00:00:17.180 --> 00:00:18.260

  • 00:00:21.070 --> 00:00:23.100
  • I LIKE TO START WITH
  • 00:00:23.100 --> 00:00:24.080
  • SOMETHING FUNNY. I HEARD
  • 00:00:24.080 --> 00:00:25.100
  • ABOUT THIS LADY THAT DIED.
  • 00:00:25.100 --> 00:00:27.070
  • SHE WAS AT THE PEARLY GATES
  • 00:00:27.070 --> 00:00:28.150
  • CAN'T COME IN YET. YOU HAVE
  • 00:00:29.230 --> 00:00:31.080
  • TO CORRECTLY SPELL A WORD."
  • 00:00:31.080 --> 00:00:33.090
  • SHE SAID, "WHAT WORD?"
  • 00:00:33.090 --> 00:00:34.170
  • HE SAID, "ANY WORD."
  • 00:00:34.170 --> 00:00:35.290
  • SO SHE SPELLED THE WORD
  • 00:00:35.290 --> 00:00:37.000
  • "LOVE", L-O-V-E. HE SAID,
  • 00:00:37.000 --> 00:00:39.000
  • "WELCOME TO HEAVEN." THEN
  • 00:00:39.000 --> 00:00:40.190
  • PETER ASKED HER IF SHE WOULD
  • 00:00:40.190 --> 00:00:42.100
  • TAKE HIS PLACE FOR JUST A
  • 00:00:42.100 --> 00:00:43.200
  • MOMENT. HE INSTRUCTED HER
  • 00:00:43.200 --> 00:00:45.060
  • IF ANYBODY CAME UP JUST TO
  • 00:00:45.060 --> 00:00:46.120
  • FOLLOW THE SAME PROCEDURE.
  • 00:00:46.120 --> 00:00:48.160
  • A FEW MINUTES, SHE SEES HER
  • 00:00:48.160 --> 00:00:49.280
  • EX-HUSBAND WALKING UP.
  • 00:00:49.280 --> 00:00:51.260
  • SHE CAN'T BELIEVE IT. SHE
  • 00:00:51.260 --> 00:00:52.250
  • SAYS "WHAT ARE YOU DOING
  • 00:00:52.250 --> 00:00:53.230
  • HERE?" HE SAID, "I JUST HAD
  • 00:00:53.230 --> 00:00:54.220
  • A HEART ATTACK. DID I REALLY
  • 00:00:54.220 --> 00:00:56.050
  • MAKE IT TO HEAVEN?" SHE
  • 00:00:56.050 --> 00:00:57.120
  • SAID, "NOT YET. YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:00:57.120 --> 00:00:58.220
  • SPELL A WORD CORRECTLY."
  • 00:00:58.220 --> 00:01:00.140
  • HE SAID, "WHAT WORD?"
  • 00:01:00.140 --> 00:01:01.280
  • THERE WAS A LONG PAUSE AND
  • 00:01:01.280 --> 00:01:03.030
  • SHE SAID, "CZECHOSLOVAKIA."
  • 00:01:03.030 --> 00:01:04.250
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY
  • 00:01:07.120 --> 00:01:08.110
  • ABOUT "EMPTYING OUT THE
  • 00:01:08.110 --> 00:01:09.220
  • NEGATIVE". IT'S EASY TO GO
  • 00:01:09.220 --> 00:01:11.240
  • THROUGH LIFE HOLDING ON TO
  • 00:01:11.240 --> 00:01:13.050
  • DOWN. GUILT. RESENTMENT.
  • 00:01:14.110 --> 00:01:16.270
  • DOUBT. WORRY. THE PROBLEM
  • 00:01:16.270 --> 00:01:19.130
  • IS WHEN WE ALLOW THESE
  • 00:01:19.130 --> 00:01:20.230
  • THINGS IN, THEY'RE TAKING UP
  • 00:01:20.230 --> 00:01:22.190
  • SPACE FOR THE GOOD THINGS
  • 00:01:22.190 --> 00:01:24.060
  • THAT SHOULD BE THERE.
  • 00:01:24.060 --> 00:01:25.230
  • IMAGINE YOUR LIFE IS LIKE A
  • 00:01:25.230 --> 00:01:27.080
  • CONTAINER. YOU WERE CREATED
  • 00:01:27.080 --> 00:01:29.140
  • TO BE FILLED WITH JOY, PEACE,
  • 00:01:29.140 --> 00:01:30.290
  • CONFIDENCE, CREATIVITY. BUT
  • 00:01:30.290 --> 00:01:31.280
  • IF YOU ALLOW WORRY IN, IT
  • 00:01:31.280 --> 00:01:32.260
  • PUSHES OUT THE PEACE.
  • 00:01:32.260 --> 00:01:33.240
  • THERE'S NOT SPACE FOR BOTH.
  • 00:01:33.240 --> 00:01:34.230
  • YOU CAN'T GO ABOVE 100%.
  • 00:01:34.230 --> 00:01:35.210
  • YOU HAVE A LIMITED AMOUNT
  • 00:01:35.210 --> 00:01:36.200
  • OF ROOM. IF YOU ALLOW GUILT
  • 00:01:36.200 --> 00:01:37.180
  • TO TAKE UP SPACE, THAT'S
  • 00:01:37.180 --> 00:01:38.170
  • SPACE THAT YOU DON'T HAVE
  • 00:01:38.170 --> 00:01:40.030
  • FOR THE CONFIDENCE YOU NEED.
  • 00:01:42.090 --> 00:01:45.090
  • THE REASON SOME PEOPLE DON'T
  • 00:01:47.150 --> 00:01:50.150
  • ENJOY THEIR LIVES IS BECAUSE
  • 00:01:51.090 --> 00:01:54.090
  • THEY'RE A CONTAINER. THEIR
  • 00:01:54.090 --> 00:01:55.230
  • HEART IS CONTAMINATED WITH
  • 00:01:55.230 --> 00:01:57.240
  • SO MANY THINGS. THEY HAVE
  • 00:01:57.240 --> 00:01:59.180
  • 10% WORRIED, STRESSED OUT
  • 00:01:59.180 --> 00:02:01.130
  • OVER THEIR JOB.
  • 00:02:01.130 --> 00:02:02.210
  • 12% BITTERNESS, MAD AT THEIR
  • 00:02:02.210 --> 00:02:04.180
  • NEIGHBOR. 20% GUILT, BEATING
  • 00:02:04.180 --> 00:02:07.100
  • THEMSELVES UP FOR PAST
  • 00:02:07.100 --> 00:02:08.150
  • MISTAKES. 9% JEALOUSY, THEIR
  • 00:02:08.150 --> 00:02:10.290
  • COWORKER IS MORE BEAUTIFUL.
  • 00:02:10.290 --> 00:02:12.240
  • THEY DON'T REALIZE 70% OF
  • 00:02:12.240 --> 00:02:15.080
  • THEIR CONTAINER IS NEGATIVE.
  • 00:02:15.080 --> 00:02:16.130
  • AND THEY WONDER WHY THEY
  • 00:02:16.130 --> 00:02:17.260
  • DON'T HAVE JOY, CREATIVITY,
  • 00:02:17.260 --> 00:02:19.130
  • PASSION. THEY ONLY HAVE ROOM
  • 00:02:19.130 --> 00:02:21.230
  • FOR 30% OF WHAT THEY SHOULD
  • 00:02:21.230 --> 00:02:23.130
  • HAVE.
  • 00:02:23.130 --> 00:02:24.150
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, "GIVE NO
  • 00:02:24.150 --> 00:02:26.150
  • PLACE TO THE ENEMY."
  • 00:02:26.150 --> 00:02:28.030
  • IT'S NOT JUST TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:02:28.030 --> 00:02:29.080
  • FORCES OF DARKNESS. THAT
  • 00:02:29.080 --> 00:02:30.200
  • MEANS GIVE NO PLACE TO GUILT.
  • 00:02:30.200 --> 00:02:33.120
  • GIVE NO PLACE TO WORRY. GIVE
  • 00:02:33.120 --> 00:02:35.120
  • NO PLACE TO BITTERNESS.
  • 00:02:35.120 --> 00:02:36.290
  • IT CAN'T COME IN AND
  • 00:02:36.290 --> 00:02:38.040
  • AUTOMATICALLY TAKE OVER.
  • 00:02:38.040 --> 00:02:39.280
  • YOU CONTROL WHAT'S IN YOUR
  • 00:02:39.280 --> 00:02:41.160
  • CONTAINER. YOU CONTROL WHAT
  • 00:02:41.160 --> 00:02:43.160
  • YOU THINK ABOUT, WHAT YOU
  • 00:02:43.160 --> 00:02:44.240
  • WE ALL HAVE NEGATIVE
  • 00:02:46.290 --> 00:02:48.000
  • EMOTIONS, NEGATIVE FEELINGS.
  • 00:02:48.000 --> 00:02:50.100
  • BUT YOU HAVE TO MAKE THE
  • 00:02:50.100 --> 00:02:51.090
  • CHOICE. "I'M NOT GOING TO
  • 00:02:51.090 --> 00:02:52.260
  • GIVE THIS JEALOUSY, THIS
  • 00:02:52.260 --> 00:02:54.210
  • BITTERNESS, THIS ANGER,
  • 00:02:54.210 --> 00:02:56.200
  • VALUABLE SPACE AND LET IT
  • 00:02:56.200 --> 00:02:58.180
  • POISON MY LIFE. I'M GOING
  • 00:02:58.180 --> 00:03:00.030
  • ME."
  • 00:03:02.000 --> 00:03:02.250
  • EVERY MORNING WHEN WE WAKE
  • 00:03:02.250 --> 00:03:04.020
  • UP, WE NEED TO EMPTY OUT
  • 00:03:04.020 --> 00:03:05.230
  • ANYTHING NEGATIVE FROM THE
  • 00:03:05.230 --> 00:03:06.290
  • DAY BEFORE. IF SOMEBODY
  • 00:03:06.290 --> 00:03:08.250
  • OFFENDED YOU AT WORK, THEY
  • 00:03:08.250 --> 00:03:10.130
  • DIDN'T TREAT YOU RIGHT, IT'S
  • 00:03:10.130 --> 00:03:11.210
  • EASY TO LET THAT OFFENSE
  • 00:03:11.210 --> 00:03:12.290
  • STAY. IT FEELS GOOD TO
  • 00:03:12.290 --> 00:03:14.160
  • CARRY AROUND A GRUDGE.
  • 00:03:14.160 --> 00:03:15.240
  • BUT YOU HAVE TO BE
  • 00:03:15.240 --> 00:03:16.220
  • DISCIPLINED AND SAY, "NO,
  • 00:03:16.220 --> 00:03:17.290
  • I AM NOT GIVING THIS
  • 00:03:17.290 --> 00:03:19.050
  • OFFENSE ANY ROOM. I AM NOT
  • 00:03:19.050 --> 00:03:21.080
  • GOING TO LET IT SOUR MY
  • 00:03:21.080 --> 00:03:22.090
  • DAY." THEY HURT YOU ONCE.
  • 00:03:22.090 --> 00:03:24.270
  • DON'T LET THEM CONTINUE TO
  • 00:03:24.270 --> 00:03:26.150
  • HURT YOU BY HOLDING ON TO
  • 00:03:26.150 --> 00:03:28.100
  • THE OFFENSE. BEING OFFENDED
  • 00:03:28.100 --> 00:03:30.130
  • IS NOT HARMING THEM. IT'S
  • 00:03:30.130 --> 00:03:31.260
  • HARMING YOU. IT'S TAKING
  • 00:03:31.260 --> 00:03:33.200
  • UP SPACE YOU NEED FOR THE
  • 00:03:33.200 --> 00:03:35.150
  • GOOD THINGS THAT MOVE YOU
  • 00:03:35.150 --> 00:03:36.160
  • OR YOU WAKE UP IN THE
  • 00:03:38.170 --> 00:03:39.130
  • MORNING AND THOUGHTS OF
  • 00:03:39.130 --> 00:03:40.110
  • WORRY COME. HOW ARE YOU
  • 00:03:40.110 --> 00:03:41.280
  • GOING TO PAY YOUR BILLS?
  • 00:03:41.280 --> 00:03:43.100
  • WHAT IF THE MEDICAL REPORT'S
  • 00:03:43.100 --> 00:03:44.120
  • NOT GOOD? YOU'LL NEVER GET
  • 00:03:44.120 --> 00:03:45.260
  • OUT OF THIS PROBLEM. DON'T
  • 00:03:45.260 --> 00:03:47.090
  • ALLOW THAT IN. DON'T MAKE
  • 00:03:47.090 --> 00:03:49.050
  • THE MISTAKE OF DWELLING ON
  • 00:03:49.050 --> 00:03:50.100
  • HE'S GOT ME IN THE PALM OF
  • 00:03:53.140 --> 00:03:54.130
  • HIS HAND. HE'LL GET ME TO
  • 00:03:54.130 --> 00:03:56.140
  • WHERE I'M SUPPOSED TO BE."
  • 00:03:56.140 --> 00:03:58.120
  • TAKE INVENTORY OF WHAT
  • 00:03:58.120 --> 00:03:59.270
  • YOU'RE GIVING SPACE TO.
  • 00:03:59.270 --> 00:04:01.180
  • LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO GO
  • 00:04:01.180 --> 00:04:03.010
  • THROUGH IT WITH NEGATIVE
  • 00:04:03.010 --> 00:04:04.070
  • DAVID SAID IN PSALM 103,
  • 00:04:06.200 --> 00:04:08.210
  • "GOD FILLS MY LIFE WITH
  • 00:04:08.210 --> 00:04:10.080
  • GOOD THINGS SO I STAY YOUNG
  • 00:04:10.080 --> 00:04:12.200
  • AND STRONG."
  • 00:04:12.200 --> 00:04:14.000
  • NOW, I'VE LEARNED, IF YOU'LL
  • 00:04:14.000 --> 00:04:14.290
  • EMPTY OUT THE NEGATIVE, IF
  • 00:04:14.290 --> 00:04:16.160
  • FILL YOU WITH GOOD THINGS.
  • 00:04:18.030 --> 00:04:19.070
  • IF YOU EMPTY OUT THE WORRY,
  • 00:04:19.070 --> 00:04:21.040
  • GOD WILL FILL YOU WITH PEACE.
  • 00:04:21.040 --> 00:04:22.170
  • IF YOU EMPTY OUT THE
  • 00:04:22.170 --> 00:04:23.260
  • INSECURITY, THE NEGATIVE
  • 00:04:23.260 --> 00:04:25.180
  • THINGS PEOPLE HAVE SAID
  • 00:04:25.180 --> 00:04:26.160
  • ABOUT YOU, GOD WILL FILL
  • 00:04:26.160 --> 00:04:28.010
  • YOU WITH CONFIDENCE. MY
  • 00:04:28.010 --> 00:04:29.250
  • QUESTION TODAY IS IS GOD
  • 00:04:29.250 --> 00:04:32.020
  • TRYING TO FILL YOU WITH GOOD
  • 00:04:32.020 --> 00:04:33.100
  • THINGS BUT THERE'S NO ROOM?
  • 00:04:33.100 --> 00:04:35.180
  • YOUR CONTAINER IS FULL OF
  • 00:04:35.180 --> 00:04:36.230
  • WORRY, REGRET, BITTERNESS,
  • 00:04:36.230 --> 00:04:39.020
  • JEALOUSY? WHY DON'T YOU
  • 00:04:39.020 --> 00:04:40.270
  • START EMPTYING THAT OUT?
  • 00:04:40.270 --> 00:04:42.000
  • IF SOMEBODY DID YOU WRONG,
  • 00:04:42.000 --> 00:04:44.120
  • YOU COULD HANG ON TO THAT
  • 00:04:44.120 --> 00:04:45.140
  • BITTERNESS; INSTEAD, "GOD,
  • 00:04:45.140 --> 00:04:47.000
  • I FORGIVE THEM. I LET IT
  • 00:04:47.000 --> 00:04:48.140
  • GO." YOU DIDN'T JUST
  • 00:04:48.140 --> 00:04:50.000
  • FORGIVE. YOU MADE ROOM FOR
  • 00:04:50.000 --> 00:04:52.050
  • GOD TO FILL YOU WITH GOOD
  • 00:04:52.050 --> 00:04:53.110
  • THINGS. THAT'S WHEN HE'LL
  • 00:04:53.110 --> 00:04:54.240
  • GIVE YOU BEAUTY FOR ASHES,
  • 00:04:54.240 --> 00:04:56.150
  • JOY FOR MOURNING. YOU'RE
  • 00:04:56.150 --> 00:04:58.080
  • IN A TOUGH SEASON. THE
  • 00:04:58.080 --> 00:04:59.260
  • MEDICAL REPORT WASN'T
  • 00:04:59.260 --> 00:05:00.280
  • GOOD. YOU SHOULD BE
  • 00:05:00.280 --> 00:05:02.070
  • STRESSED, WORRIED; INSTEAD,
  • 00:05:02.070 --> 00:05:04.130
  • "GOD, I TRUST YOU. YOU SAID
  • 00:05:04.130 --> 00:05:06.020
  • BACK UNTO ME." YOU JUST
  • 00:05:07.120 --> 00:05:08.290
  • MADE ROOM FOR GOD TO FILL
  • 00:05:08.290 --> 00:05:10.230
  • YOU WITH HEALING. YOU EMPTY
  • 00:05:10.230 --> 00:05:12.140
  • OUT THE WORRY AND GOD WILL
  • 00:05:12.140 --> 00:05:13.250
  • GIVE YOU PEACE IN THE MIDST
  • 00:05:13.250 --> 00:05:15.000
  • PERHAPS A COWORKER GOT THE
  • 00:05:16.140 --> 00:05:17.290
  • PROMOTION THAT YOU WORKED
  • 00:05:17.290 --> 00:05:19.030
  • SO HARD FOR. ENVY, JEALOUSY
  • 00:05:19.030 --> 00:05:21.190
  • WILL COME: "I WISH THAT WAS
  • 00:05:21.190 --> 00:05:23.130
  • ME. I'M SMARTER THAN THEY
  • 00:05:23.130 --> 00:05:24.290
  • ARE. I DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:05:24.290 --> 00:05:26.030
  • THAT." INSTEAD OF LETTING
  • 00:05:26.030 --> 00:05:27.250
  • THAT STAY: "GOD I KNOW
  • 00:05:27.250 --> 00:05:29.220
  • YOU'RE NO RESPECTER OF
  • 00:05:29.220 --> 00:05:30.260
  • PERSONS. YOU DID IT FOR
  • 00:05:30.260 --> 00:05:32.070
  • FOR ME." THE GOOD NEWS IS

  • VIBRANT, PASSIONATE ABOUT

  • LIFE IS BECAUSE THEY'RE
  • 00:06:45.020 --> 00:06:46.200
  • FILLED WITH THE NEGATIVE.
  • 00:06:46.200 --> 00:06:48.110
  • WORRY WILL MAKE YOU WEAK.
  • 00:06:48.110 --> 00:06:50.180

  • 00:07:02.090 --> 00:07:04.250
  • YOU CAN BE 80 YEARS OLD AND

  • NEVER AGES.
  • 00:07:08.070 --> 00:07:09.180
  • I MET A WOMAN IN THE LOBBY

  • AND KEPT HER YOUNG AND

  • WHERE WE GET OUR WORD

  • WE'RE HOLDING ON TO THINGS

  • INFECTION. WORRY. DOUBT.
  • 00:09:45.270 --> 00:09:48.110
  • SELF-PITY. THESE THINGS ARE
  • 00:09:48.110 --> 00:09:50.000
  • NOT UNUSUAL. IMPURITIES
  • 00:09:50.000 --> 00:09:52.050
  • COME. YOU HAVE TO PUSH
  • 00:09:52.050 --> 00:09:54.020
  • THEM OUT. IT'S WHEN WE HOLD

  • 00:11:29.040 --> 00:11:30.090
  • TO DELIVER IT. I WONDER HOW
  • 00:11:30.090 --> 00:11:32.240
  • MANY THINGS ARE EN ROUTE
  • 00:11:32.240 --> 00:11:34.070
  • RIGHT NOW? THE ANGEL IS
  • 00:11:34.070 --> 00:11:36.020
  • STANDING BY WITH OUR JOY,
  • 00:11:36.020 --> 00:11:37.270
  • OUR PEACE, OUR CONFIDENCE,
  • 00:11:37.270 --> 00:11:39.070
  • OUR CREATIVITY, OUR SPOUSE
  • 00:11:39.070 --> 00:11:41.050
  • BUT BECAUSE THERE'S NO ROOM.
  • 00:11:41.050 --> 00:11:42.280
  • BECAUSE WE'RE NOT RELEASING
  • 00:11:42.280 --> 00:11:44.080
  • THE TOXINS, THE ANGER, THE
  • 00:11:44.080 --> 00:11:45.240
  • BITTERNESS, THE JEALOUSY,
  • 00:11:45.240 --> 00:11:46.240
  • THE WORRY, THEN HE CAN'T
  • 00:11:46.240 --> 00:11:48.230
  • DELIVER THOSE GOOD THINGS.
  • 00:11:48.230 --> 00:11:50.150
  • INSTEAD OF LIVING BLESSED,
  • 00:11:50.150 --> 00:11:52.010
  • EXCITED ABOUT OUR FUTURE,
  • 00:11:52.010 --> 00:11:54.000
  • WE BECOME INFECTED. THE
  • 00:11:54.000 --> 00:11:55.210
  • GOOD NEWS IS YOU CAN GET
  • 00:11:55.210 --> 00:11:57.230
  • RID OF THAT INFECTION. IT
  • 00:11:57.230 --> 00:11:59.160
  • IS NOT PERMANENT. IF YOU'LL
  • 00:11:59.160 --> 00:12:01.050
  • START RELEASING THE REGRET,
  • 00:12:01.050 --> 00:12:03.150
  • THE WORRY, THE BITTERNESS,
  • 00:12:03.150 --> 00:12:05.060
  • THE ANGER; THEN IT'S JUST
  • 00:12:05.060 --> 00:12:07.030
  • A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE
  • 00:12:07.030 --> 00:12:08.180
  • THAT ANGEL SHOWS UP WITH
  • 00:12:08.180 --> 00:12:09.280
  • YOUR DELIVERY.
  • 00:12:09.280 --> 00:12:11.020
  • WHEN YOU MAKE ROOM, GOD
  • 00:12:11.020 --> 00:12:12.220
  • PROMISES HE WILL FILL YOUR
  • 00:12:12.220 --> 00:12:14.130
  • LIFE WITH GOOD THINGS.
  • 00:12:14.130 --> 00:12:15.240
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:12:15.240 --> 00:12:16.230
  • THIS IS WHAT DAVID DID. HE
  • 00:12:16.230 --> 00:12:18.220
  • OUT THE NEGATIVE. HIS
  • 00:12:20.160 --> 00:12:21.260
  • FAMILY LOOKED DOWN ON HIM,
  • 00:12:21.260 --> 00:12:23.240
  • TREATED HIM LIKE HE WAS
  • 00:12:23.240 --> 00:12:24.220
  • LET THAT INFECTION TAKE
  • 00:12:26.220 --> 00:12:28.000
  • ROOT, LIVED INSECURE.
  • 00:12:28.000 --> 00:12:30.050
  • INSTEAD, HE LET IT GO IN
  • 00:12:30.050 --> 00:12:31.240
  • ONE EAR AND OUT THE OTHER.
  • 00:12:31.240 --> 00:12:33.200
  • HE KNEW IF HE HELD ON TO IT,
  • 00:12:33.200 --> 00:12:35.200
  • IT WOULD KEEP HIM FROM HIS
  • 00:12:35.200 --> 00:12:36.210
  • PALACE, SERVED FAITHFULLY
  • 00:12:38.260 --> 00:12:40.200
  • TO KING SAUL. HE WOULD PLAY
  • 00:12:40.200 --> 00:12:42.180
  • THE HARP WHEN SAUL WAS SICK
  • 00:12:42.180 --> 00:12:44.180
  • TO MAKE HIM FEEL BETTER.
  • 00:12:44.180 --> 00:12:46.030
  • IN RETURN, SAUL TRIED TO
  • 00:12:46.030 --> 00:12:47.290
  • OF DAVID AND CHASED HIM
  • 00:12:50.100 --> 00:12:51.140
  • THROUGH THE DESERT. MADE
  • 00:12:51.140 --> 00:12:52.270
  • HIS LIFE MISERABLE. DAVID
  • 00:12:52.270 --> 00:12:55.040
  • COULD HAVE BECOME BITTER
  • 00:12:55.040 --> 00:12:56.020
  • AND THOUGHT, "WHAT'S THE
  • 00:12:56.020 --> 00:12:57.010
  • USE? EVERYBODY'S AGAINST
  • 00:12:57.010 --> 00:12:58.170
  • ME." LIFE IS NOT FAIR.
  • 00:12:58.170 --> 00:13:00.210
  • INSTEAD HE KEPT HIS HEART
  • 00:13:00.210 --> 00:13:02.150
  • PURE AND EMPTIED OUT THE
  • 00:13:02.150 --> 00:13:03.280
  • SELF-PITY. LIKE DAVID, WE
  • 00:13:03.280 --> 00:13:06.210
  • ALL HAVE IMPURITIES,
  • 00:13:06.210 --> 00:13:08.190
  • INFECTIONS THAT COME, PEOPLE
  • 00:13:08.190 --> 00:13:10.050
  • COME AGAINST US. OUR PLANS
  • 00:13:10.050 --> 00:13:12.030
  • DON'T ALWAYS WORK OUT.
  • 00:13:12.030 --> 00:13:13.280
  • IT'S EASY TO THINK, "WHY
  • 00:13:13.280 --> 00:13:15.080
  • IS THIS HAPPENING?" IT'S
  • 00:13:15.080 --> 00:13:16.210
  • JUST LIFE. THE SCRIPTURE
  • 00:13:16.210 --> 00:13:18.180
  • SAYS, "OFFENSES WILL COME."
  • 00:13:18.180 --> 00:13:21.020
  • THEY'RE NOT A PROBLEM UNLESS
  • 00:13:21.020 --> 00:13:22.170
  • YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO
  • 00:13:22.170 --> 00:13:23.200
  • WITH THEM. TOO MANY PEOPLE
  • 00:13:23.200 --> 00:13:25.190
  • MAKE THE MISTAKE OF HOLDING
  • 00:13:25.190 --> 00:13:26.290
  • ON TO THEM. THEY GET BITTER,
  • 00:13:26.290 --> 00:13:29.120
  • LIVE GUILTY, WITH A CHIP ON
  • 00:13:29.120 --> 00:13:31.020
  • THEIR SHOULDER. THAT'S GOING
  • 00:13:31.020 --> 00:13:32.220
  • TO POISON YOUR FUTURE. YOU
  • 00:13:32.220 --> 00:13:34.240
  • HAVE TO RELEASE THE TOXINS
  • 00:13:34.240 --> 00:13:37.000
  • OF LIFE. YOU MAY NOT BE ABLE
  • 00:13:37.000 --> 00:13:39.000
  • TO KEEP THEM FROM COMING BUT
  • 00:13:39.000 --> 00:13:40.230
  • YOU CAN KEEP THEM FROM
  • 00:13:40.230 --> 00:13:41.220
  • STAYING.
  • 00:13:41.220 --> 00:13:43.060
  • THAT MEANS HE KEPT THE
  • 00:13:45.050 --> 00:13:46.090
  • INFECTIONS OUT. IT DOESN'T
  • 00:13:46.090 --> 00:13:48.090
  • MEAN THAT HE WAS PERFECT.
  • 00:13:48.090 --> 00:13:50.100
  • DAVID MADE MISTAKES.
  • 00:13:50.100 --> 00:13:52.010
  • ONE TIME HE COMMITTED
  • 00:13:52.010 --> 00:13:53.010
  • ADULTERY AND HAD THE LADY'S
  • 00:13:53.010 --> 00:13:54.240
  • HUSBAND KILLED. FOR ONE YEAR
  • 00:13:54.240 --> 00:13:56.260
  • HE TRIED TO COVER IT UP AND
  • 00:13:56.260 --> 00:13:58.160
  • SWEPT IT UNDER A RUG. HE WAS
  • 00:13:58.160 --> 00:14:00.260
  • SO OVERWHELMED WITH GUILT,
  • 00:14:00.260 --> 00:14:02.290
  • CONDEMNATION THAT HE BECAME
  • 00:14:02.290 --> 00:14:04.270
  • SICK AND WEAK. THAT POISON
  • 00:14:04.270 --> 00:14:07.130
  • STARTED TO INFECT HIS LIFE.
  • 00:14:07.130 --> 00:14:09.150
  • HE FINALLY ADMITTED HIS
  • 00:14:09.150 --> 00:14:10.250
  • MISTAKE. HE REPENTED AND
  • 00:14:10.250 --> 00:14:12.170
  • AND THINGS BEGAN TO TURN
  • 00:14:14.100 --> 00:14:15.080
  • INFECTION OUT, THEN HIS
  • 00:14:17.160 --> 00:14:19.040
  • HEALTH WAS RESTORED.
  • 00:14:19.040 --> 00:14:21.050
  • WHEN YOU MAKE A MISTAKE AND
  • 00:14:21.050 --> 00:14:22.080
  • WE ALL DO, DON'T RUN AWAY
  • 00:14:22.080 --> 00:14:24.090
  • FROM GOD, DON'T TRY TO HIDE
  • 00:14:24.090 --> 00:14:25.240
  • IT. GO TO GOD, REPENT. THAT
  • 00:14:25.240 --> 00:14:28.130
  • MEANS DON'T KEEP DOING THE
  • 00:14:28.130 --> 00:14:29.120
  • FORGIVENESS. AND HERE'S THE
  • 00:14:31.110 --> 00:14:32.180
  • KEY: YOU HAVE TO RECEIVE
  • 00:14:32.180 --> 00:14:34.210
  • GOD'S MERCY. THE ENEMY IS
  • 00:14:34.210 --> 00:14:37.070
  • CALLED THE ACCUSER OF THE
  • 00:14:37.070 --> 00:14:38.250
  • BRETHREN. HE'LL REMIND YOU
  • 00:14:38.250 --> 00:14:40.190
  • OF EVERY MISTAKE YOU'VE
  • 00:14:40.190 --> 00:14:41.220
  • MADE FOR THE LAST 30 YEARS.
  • 00:14:41.220 --> 00:14:44.060
  • IT'S EASY TO LIVE LIFE IN
  • 00:14:44.060 --> 00:14:46.040
  • REGRETS, THINKING ABOUT
  • 00:14:46.040 --> 00:14:47.240
  • WHAT YOU SHOULD HAVE DONE
  • 00:14:47.240 --> 00:14:48.220
  • DIFFERENTLY.
  • 00:14:48.220 --> 00:14:49.210
  • "MAN, I SHOULD HAVE RAISED MY
  • 00:14:49.210 --> 00:14:50.190
  • CHILDREN BETTER."
  • 00:14:50.190 --> 00:14:51.180
  • "I SHOULD HAVE BEEN MORE
  • 00:14:51.180 --> 00:14:52.160
  • FAITHFUL IN MY MARRIAGE."
  • 00:14:52.160 --> 00:14:53.190
  • "I SHOULD HAVE FINISHED
  • 00:14:53.190 --> 00:14:54.180
  • COLLEGE."
  • 00:14:54.180 --> 00:14:55.160
  • DON'T GO THROUGH LIFE
  • 00:14:55.160 --> 00:14:56.250
  • LOOKING IN THE REAR VIEW
  • 00:14:56.250 --> 00:14:57.240
  • MIRROR, DOWN ON YOURSELF;
  • 00:14:57.240 --> 00:14:59.250
  • LIVING IN REGRETS.
  • 00:14:59.250 --> 00:15:01.100
  • YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT
  • 00:15:01.100 --> 00:15:02.240
  • THE PAST, BUT YOU CAN DO
  • 00:15:02.240 --> 00:15:04.150
  • SOMETHING ABOUT RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:15:04.150 --> 00:15:06.150
  • BEING AGAINST YOURSELF
  • 00:15:06.150 --> 00:15:08.010
  • DOESN'T HELP YOU DO BETTER;
  • 00:15:08.010 --> 00:15:09.040
  • IT PUSHES YOU DOWN. THE
  • 00:15:09.040 --> 00:15:11.190
  • MOMENT YOU ASKED GOD TO
  • 00:15:11.190 --> 00:15:13.040
  • FORGIVE YOU, HE FORGAVE YOU.
  • 00:15:13.040 --> 00:15:15.290
  • WHY DON'T YOU FORGIVE
  • 00:15:15.290 --> 00:15:16.280
  • YOURSELF? WHY DON'T YOU
  • 00:15:16.280 --> 00:15:18.170
  • EMPTY OUT THE GUILT? WHY
  • 00:15:18.170 --> 00:15:20.040
  • DON'T YOU TURN OFF THE
  • 00:15:20.040 --> 00:15:21.120
  • ACCUSING VOICES? GOD
  • 00:15:21.120 --> 00:15:23.090
  • DOESN'T REMEMBER YOUR
  • 00:15:23.090 --> 00:15:24.130
  • MISTAKES ANYMORE.
  • 00:15:24.130 --> 00:15:26.010
  • IF SOMEONE IS BRINGING UP
  • 00:15:26.010 --> 00:15:27.110
  • THE NEGATIVE THINGS OF YOUR
  • 00:15:27.110 --> 00:15:28.180
  • PAST, IT'S NOT GOD; THAT'S
  • 00:15:28.180 --> 00:15:30.150
  • THE ACCUSER TRYING TO
  • 00:15:30.150 --> 00:15:31.290
  • DECEIVE YOU INTO LIVING
  • 00:15:31.290 --> 00:15:33.090
  • CONDEMNED. HOW MUCH SPACE
  • 00:15:33.090 --> 00:15:35.270
  • ARE YOU GIVING TO GUILT,
  • 00:15:35.270 --> 00:15:37.180
  • TO SHAME, TO REGRET, TO
  • 00:15:37.180 --> 00:15:39.130
  • BEING AGAINST YOURSELF?
  • 00:15:39.130 --> 00:15:40.290
  • WHATEVER IT IS, IT'S TOO
  • 00:15:40.290 --> 00:15:42.240
  • MUCH. YOU NEED THAT SPACE
  • 00:15:42.240 --> 00:15:45.140
  • FOR THE GOOD THINGS GOD HAS
  • 00:15:45.140 --> 00:15:47.110
  • TO MOVE YOU TOWARD YOUR
  • 00:15:47.110 --> 00:15:48.170
  • DESTINY. IF YOU'RE GIVING
  • 00:15:48.170 --> 00:15:50.080
  • SPACE TO GUILT, YOU WILL
  • 00:15:50.080 --> 00:15:52.030
  • NOT HAVE THE CONFIDENCE
  • 00:15:52.030 --> 00:15:53.170
  • YOU NEED TO MOVE FORWARD.
  • 00:15:53.170 --> 00:15:55.230
  • THAT WILL CAUSE YOU TO FAIL
  • 00:15:55.230 --> 00:15:57.060
  • AGAIN. IT'S A NEGATIVE
  • 00:15:57.060 --> 00:15:58.290
  • CYCLE. THE ONLY WAY YOU
  • 00:15:58.290 --> 00:16:00.170
  • CAN BREAK IT, IS TO RISE UP
  • 00:16:00.170 --> 00:16:02.130
  • AND SAY, "THAT'S IT. I AM
  • 00:16:02.130 --> 00:16:03.290
  • DONE LIVING IN THE PAST,
  • 00:16:03.290 --> 00:16:05.220
  • FOCUSED ON MY MISTAKES,
  • 00:16:05.220 --> 00:16:07.110
  • RELIVING MY FAILURES,
  • 00:16:07.110 --> 00:16:08.180
  • BEATING MYSELF UP.
  • 00:16:08.180 --> 00:16:09.290
  • THIS IS A NEW DAY. I'M
  • 00:16:09.290 --> 00:16:11.230
  • EMPTYING OUT ALL THAT
  • 00:16:11.230 --> 00:16:13.010
  • INFECTION. I'M GOING TO
  • 00:16:13.010 --> 00:16:14.080
  • YOU HAVE TO DO THIS BY
  • 00:16:16.170 --> 00:16:17.270
  • FAITH BECAUSE EVERY VOICE
  • 00:16:17.270 --> 00:16:20.080
  • WILL TELL YOU YOU'RE A
  • 00:16:20.080 --> 00:16:21.070
  • HYPOCRITE. GOD'S NOT GOING
  • 00:16:21.070 --> 00:16:22.290
  • TO FORGIVE YOU. LOOK WHAT
  • 00:16:22.290 --> 00:16:24.090
  • YOU'VE DONE. IT DOESN'T
  • 00:16:24.090 --> 00:16:25.180
  • HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH
  • 00:16:25.180 --> 00:16:26.240
  • WHAT YOU HAVE OR HAVEN'T
  • 00:16:26.240 --> 00:16:28.020
  • DONE. IT HAS TO DO WITH
  • 00:16:28.020 --> 00:16:29.180
  • WHAT JESUS HAS ALREADY
  • 00:16:29.180 --> 00:16:30.280
  • DONE.
  • 00:16:30.280 --> 00:16:32.180
  • "WELL, JOEL, I'VE MADE A LOT
  • 00:16:32.180 --> 00:16:33.240
  • OF MISTAKES. I DON'T DESERVE
  • 00:16:33.240 --> 00:16:34.270
  • NONE OF US DESERVE IT. THIS
  • 00:16:36.120 --> 00:16:38.070
  • IS WHAT MERCY IS ALL ABOUT.
  • 00:16:38.070 --> 00:16:40.050
  • THAT'S WHY IT'S CALLED THE
  • 00:16:40.050 --> 00:16:41.190
  • "GOOD NEWS". YOUR SINS HAVE
  • 00:16:41.190 --> 00:16:43.110
  • ALREADY BEEN FORGIVEN.
  • 00:16:43.110 --> 00:16:45.030
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO PAY GOD
  • 00:16:45.030 --> 00:16:46.080
  • BACK FOR YOUR MISTAKES, THE
  • 00:16:46.080 --> 00:16:47.220
  • PRICE HAS ALREADY BEEN PAID.
  • 00:16:47.220 --> 00:16:49.050
  • AND WHEN YOU FALL, DON'T STAY
  • 00:16:49.050 --> 00:16:51.110
  • DOWN; GET BACK UP AGAIN.
  • 00:16:51.110 --> 00:16:52.170
  • AND WHEN THE ACCUSER
  • 00:16:52.170 --> 00:16:54.040
  • WHISPERS, "LOOK AT YOU. YOU
  • 00:16:54.040 --> 00:16:55.150
  • BLEW IT AGAIN. YOU'LL NEVER
  • 00:16:55.150 --> 00:16:56.230
  • GET IT RIGHT." JUST ANSWER
  • 00:16:56.230 --> 00:16:58.000
  • BACK, "YES, I KNOW I'M NOT

  • BE, BUT I'M MAKING PROGRESS.
  • 00:17:03.100 --> 00:17:04.280
  • I'M MOVING FORWARD. I'M NOT
  • 00:17:04.280 --> 00:17:06.000
  • WHERE I USED TO BE."
  • 00:17:06.000 --> 00:17:07.150
  • DON'T LET GUILT POISON YOUR
  • 00:17:07.150 --> 00:17:09.080
  • FUTURE. EMPTY IT OUT.
  • 00:17:09.080 --> 00:17:11.200
  • SOMETIMES IT'S HARD TO EMPTY
  • 00:17:11.200 --> 00:17:13.150
  • OUT THE NEGATIVE. WHEN A
  • 00:17:13.150 --> 00:17:15.040
  • PERSON DOES US WRONG, HUMAN
  • 00:17:15.040 --> 00:17:17.070
  • NATURE WANTS TO HOLD ON TO
  • 00:17:17.070 --> 00:17:18.160
  • THE HURT, BECOME BITTER,
  • 00:17:18.160 --> 00:17:20.160
  • CARRY AROUND A GRUDGE.
  • 00:17:20.160 --> 00:17:22.040
  • WE THINK, "I'M NOT GOING TO
  • 00:17:22.040 --> 00:17:23.030
  • FORGIVE THEM. THEY DON'T
  • 00:17:23.030 --> 00:17:24.060
  • DESERVE IT."
  • 00:17:24.060 --> 00:17:25.040
  • BUT YOU'RE NOT FORGIVING FOR
  • 00:17:25.040 --> 00:17:26.270
  • THEIR SAKE. YOU'RE FORGIVING
  • 00:17:26.270 --> 00:17:28.230
  • FOR YOUR SAKE. AS LONG AS
  • 00:17:28.230 --> 00:17:30.250
  • YOU HOLD ON TO THE HURT,
  • 00:17:30.250 --> 00:17:31.270
  • THE ANGER, THE BITTERNESS,
  • 00:17:31.270 --> 00:17:34.200
  • IT'S NOT AFFECTING THEM,
  • 00:17:34.200 --> 00:17:36.190
  • IT'S INFECTING YOU.
  • 00:17:36.190 --> 00:17:38.210
  • UNFORGIVENESS IS LIKE A
  • 00:17:38.210 --> 00:17:40.000
  • POISONOUS TOXIN. IT MAY
  • 00:17:40.000 --> 00:17:42.030
  • FEEL GOOD TO HOLD ON TO IT
  • 00:17:42.030 --> 00:17:43.130
  • BUT IT WILL CONTAMINATE YOUR
  • 00:17:43.130 --> 00:17:44.260
  • LIFE.
  • 00:17:44.260 --> 00:17:46.010
  • A LOT OF TIMES THE REASON WE
  • 00:17:46.010 --> 00:17:47.110
  • DON'T FORGIVE IS BECAUSE
  • 00:17:47.110 --> 00:17:49.060
  • WHAT THE OTHER PERSON DOES
  • 00:17:49.060 --> 00:17:50.200
  • WAS WRONG. THEY WERE CLEARLY
  • 00:17:50.200 --> 00:17:52.220
  • AT FAULT. BUT WHEN YOU
  • 00:17:52.220 --> 00:17:54.110
  • FORGIVE, YOU'RE NOT EXCUSING
  • 00:17:54.110 --> 00:17:56.180
  • THEIR BEHAVIOR. YOU'RE NOT
  • 00:17:56.180 --> 00:17:58.110
  • LESSENING THE OFFENSE,
  • 00:17:58.110 --> 00:17:59.290
  • YOU'RE SIMPLY GETTING THE
  • 00:17:59.290 --> 00:18:01.110
  • POISON OUT OF YOU. YOU HAVE
  • 00:18:01.110 --> 00:18:03.170
  • TO FORGIVE SO YOU CAN BE
  • 00:18:03.170 --> 00:18:05.110
  • FREE. QUIT LOOKING AT IT
  • 00:18:05.110 --> 00:18:07.070
  • LIKE YOU'RE DOING THEM A
  • 00:18:07.070 --> 00:18:08.060
  • FAVOR. YOU'RE DOING YOURSELF
  • 00:18:08.060 --> 00:18:09.150
  • A FAVOR.
  • 00:18:09.150 --> 00:18:10.170
  • SEE, IT TAKES A LOT OF
  • 00:18:10.170 --> 00:18:11.240
  • EMOTIONAL ENERGY TO HOLD A
  • 00:18:11.240 --> 00:18:13.220
  • GRUDGE, TO LIVE WITH
  • 00:18:13.220 --> 00:18:15.080
  • UNFORGIVENESS. YOU WAKE UP
  • 00:18:15.080 --> 00:18:17.050
  • AND IT'S ALWAYS ON YOUR
  • 00:18:17.050 --> 00:18:18.040
  • MIND; THINKING ABOUT
  • 00:18:18.040 --> 00:18:19.020
  • HOW THEY DID YOU WRONG.
  • 00:18:19.020 --> 00:18:20.130
  • YOU MAY NOT REALIZE IT BUT
  • 00:18:20.130 --> 00:18:21.290
  • YOU ARE SPENDING EMOTIONAL
  • 00:18:21.290 --> 00:18:23.240
  • ENERGY THAT YOU NEED FOR YOUR
  • 00:18:23.240 --> 00:18:26.040
  • DREAMS, FOR YOUR GOALS, FOR
  • 00:18:26.040 --> 00:18:27.290
  • YOUR CHILDREN.
  • 00:18:27.290 --> 00:18:28.290
  • YOU WON'T BECOME ALL YOU WERE
  • 00:18:28.290 --> 00:18:30.090
  • CREATED TO BE IF YOU ARE
  • 00:18:30.090 --> 00:18:32.100
  • WASTING EMOTIONAL ENERGY ON
  • 00:18:32.100 --> 00:18:34.210
  • THINGS THAT DON'T MATTER.
  • 00:18:34.210 --> 00:18:36.070
  • THAT UNFORGIVENESS IS AN
  • 00:18:36.070 --> 00:18:37.180
  • IMPURITY. YES, WHAT THEY
  • 00:18:37.180 --> 00:18:39.110
  • DID WAS WRONG. BUT YOU HAVE
  • 00:18:39.110 --> 00:18:40.270
  • TO LET IT PASS. YOU HAVE TO
  • 00:18:40.270 --> 00:18:42.250
  • RELEASE IT. WHEN YOU DO,
  • 00:18:42.250 --> 00:18:45.130
  • YOU'LL NOT ONLY FEEL A NEW
  • 00:18:45.130 --> 00:18:46.170
  • FREEDOM, NOT ONLY HAVE MORE
  • 00:18:46.170 --> 00:18:48.110
  • ENERGY, BUT GOD WILL BE YOUR
  • 00:18:48.110 --> 00:18:50.220
  • VINDICATOR. HE WILL MAKE
  • 00:18:50.220 --> 00:18:52.190
  • YOUR WRONGS RIGHT. YOU DON'T
  • 00:18:52.190 --> 00:18:54.060
  • HAVE TO PAY PEOPLE BACK.
  • 00:18:54.060 --> 00:18:55.200
  • YOU'RE NOT THE JUDGE, GOD IS.
  • 00:18:55.200 --> 00:18:57.190
  • LEAVE IT UP TO HIM AND HE'LL
  • 00:18:57.190 --> 00:18:59.040
  • VINDICATE YOU BETTER THAN
  • 00:18:59.040 --> 00:19:00.200
  • YOU CAN VINDICATE YOURSELF.
  • 00:19:00.200 --> 00:19:01.260
  • THIS IS WHAT A LADY DID
  • 00:19:03.080 --> 00:19:04.100
  • NAMED MARY JOHNSON. SHE WAS
  • 00:19:04.100 --> 00:19:06.070
  • THE SINGLE MOTHER OF ONE
  • 00:19:06.070 --> 00:19:07.170
  • SON. WHEN HE WAS 20 YEARS
  • 00:19:07.170 --> 00:19:09.160
  • OLD, HE WAS OUT LATE ONE
  • 00:19:09.160 --> 00:19:11.090
  • NIGHT AT A PARTY. THIS YOUNG
  • 00:19:11.090 --> 00:19:13.100
  • MAN CAME UP THAT HE HAD NEVER
  • 00:19:13.100 --> 00:19:14.190
  • MET. HIS NAME WAS OSHII.
  • 00:19:14.190 --> 00:19:16.280
  • HE WAS 16 YEARS OLD AND HAD
  • 00:19:16.280 --> 00:19:18.290
  • BEEN DRINKING. THERE WAS AN
  • 00:19:18.290 --> 00:19:20.160
  • ALTERCATION. IN THE HEAT OF
  • 00:19:20.160 --> 00:19:22.120
  • THE MOMENT OSHII PULLED OUT
  • 00:19:22.120 --> 00:19:23.200
  • SON. HE WAS INSTANTLY KILLED.
  • 00:19:26.000 --> 00:19:28.150
  • MARY WAS SO FILLED WITH ANGER
  • 00:19:28.150 --> 00:19:30.200
  • AND HATRED, SHE TOLD THE
  • 00:19:30.200 --> 00:19:32.160
  • JUDGE THAT 16-YEAR-OLD BOY
  • 00:19:32.160 --> 00:19:34.200
  • WAS AN ANIMAL AND HE NEEDED
  • 00:19:34.200 --> 00:19:36.110
  • TO BE CAGED. WHEN HE WAS
  • 00:19:36.110 --> 00:19:38.120
  • ONLY CHARGED WITH 2ND DEGREE
  • 00:19:38.120 --> 00:19:40.040
  • MURDER, MARY WAS EVEN MORE
  • 00:19:40.040 --> 00:19:42.100
  • ANGRY. SHE BECAME A RECLUSE,
  • 00:19:42.100 --> 00:19:45.040
  • STAYED IN HER HOUSE, AND
  • 00:19:45.040 --> 00:19:46.180
  • PICTURE. TEN YEARS PASSED.
  • 00:19:47.200 --> 00:19:49.270
  • SHE KNEW IT WAS TIME TO
  • 00:19:49.270 --> 00:19:51.140
  • FORGIVE. SHE COULD HEAR
  • 00:19:51.140 --> 00:19:53.040
  • THE STILL SMALL VOICE
  • 00:19:53.040 --> 00:19:54.120
  • TELLING HER TO LET IT GO.
  • 00:19:54.120 --> 00:19:56.200
  • SHE CONTACTED THE PRISON TO
  • 00:19:56.200 --> 00:19:58.030
  • SEE IF SHE COULD VISIT OSHII.
  • 00:19:58.030 --> 00:20:00.080
  • NO. HE WOULDN'T DO IT.
  • 00:20:02.100 --> 00:20:04.060
  • SHE KEPT ASKING AND ASKING
  • 00:20:04.060 --> 00:20:05.220
  • AND FINALLY HE AGREED. SHE
  • 00:20:05.220 --> 00:20:07.260
  • SHOWED UP AT THE PRISON.
  • 00:20:07.260 --> 00:20:09.220
  • WHEN SHE SAW OSHII, HE CAME
  • 00:20:09.220 --> 00:20:11.180
  • AROUND AND GAVE HER A BIG
  • 00:20:11.180 --> 00:20:13.170
  • HUG AND HELD ON TO HER.
  • 00:20:13.170 --> 00:20:15.230
  • THEY WEPT AND WEPT.
  • 00:20:15.230 --> 00:20:17.170
  • MARY SAID, "AS I WAS
  • 00:20:17.170 --> 00:20:19.120
  • EMBRACING OSHII, I COULD FEEL
  • 00:20:19.120 --> 00:20:21.230
  • HATRED AND BITTERNESS RISING
  • 00:20:21.230 --> 00:20:24.090
  • UP OUT OF ME AND LEAVING MY
  • 00:20:24.090 --> 00:20:25.250
  • BODY." IT WAS SO STRONG THAT
  • 00:20:25.250 --> 00:20:28.240
  • SHE FELL OVER. OSHII HAD TO
  • 00:20:28.240 --> 00:20:31.010
  • HOLD HER UP. THAT DAY, MARY
  • 00:20:31.060 --> 00:20:34.060
  • NOT ONLY EMPTIED OUT THE
  • 00:20:34.060 --> 00:20:35.290
  • UNFORGIVENESS BUT SHE FOUND
  • 00:20:35.290 --> 00:20:37.230
  • A NEW SON. SEVEN YEARS
  • 00:20:37.230 --> 00:20:39.260
  • LATER, OSHII WAS RELEASED
  • 00:20:39.260 --> 00:20:41.150
  • ON PAROLE, HE DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:20:41.150 --> 00:20:42.180
  • ANY PLACE TO LIVE. MARY
  • 00:20:42.180 --> 00:20:43.290
  • SAID, "YOU CAN LIVE NEXT
  • 00:20:43.290 --> 00:20:45.100
  • DOOR TO ME." SHE CALLS HIM
  • 00:20:45.100 --> 00:20:47.090
  • MARY STARTED AN ORGANIZATION
  • 00:20:49.180 --> 00:20:51.140
  • CALLED "FROM DEATH TO LIFE"
  • 00:20:51.140 --> 00:20:53.230
  • TO HELP MOTHERS WHO HAVE
  • 00:20:53.230 --> 00:20:55.030
  • LOST CHILDREN TO VIOLENCE.
  • 00:20:55.030 --> 00:20:56.260
  • NOW SHE AND OSHII GO OUT
  • 00:20:56.260 --> 00:20:58.140
  • AND SPEAK AT CONFERENCES AND
  • 00:20:58.140 --> 00:20:59.270
  • SCHOOLS ABOUT UNFORGIVENESS
  • 00:20:59.270 --> 00:21:01.190
  • AND OVERCOMING LOSS.
  • 00:21:01.190 --> 00:21:04.150
  • MARY SAID WHAT REALLY HELPED
  • 00:21:04.150 --> 00:21:05.270
  • HER DECIDE TO FORGIVE WAS A
  • 00:21:05.270 --> 00:21:08.150
  • POEM SHE HEARD ABOUT TWO
  • 00:21:08.150 --> 00:21:10.190
  • MOTHERS IN HEAVEN THAT HAD
  • 00:21:10.190 --> 00:21:12.180
  • JUST BECOME FRIENDS.
  • 00:21:12.180 --> 00:21:14.090
  • ONE MOTHER ASKED THE OTHER,
  • 00:21:14.090 --> 00:21:16.030
  • "MY SON IS JESUS. I'M MARY."
  • 00:21:18.030 --> 00:21:20.210
  • MARY ASKED "WHO IS YOUR SON?"
  • 00:21:20.210 --> 00:21:23.020
  • SHE SAID, "MY SON IS JUDAS."
  • 00:21:23.020 --> 00:21:25.220
  • WHEN MARY JOHNSON HEARD HOW
  • 00:21:25.220 --> 00:21:28.060
  • IN THIS POEM, MARY, THE
  • 00:21:28.060 --> 00:21:29.200
  • MOTHER OF CHRIST, HAD
  • 00:21:29.200 --> 00:21:31.110
  • BEFRIENDED THE MOTHER OF
  • 00:21:31.110 --> 00:21:32.270
  • JUDAS, SHE KNEW SHE HAD TO
  • 00:21:32.270 --> 00:21:34.270
  • REACH OUT TO THAT OTHER
  • 00:21:34.270 --> 00:21:35.250
  • FAMILY. NOW SHE HELPS OTHER
  • 00:21:35.250 --> 00:21:37.190
  • MOTHERS DO THE SAME THING.
  • 00:21:37.190 --> 00:21:39.150
  • OUT OF YOUR PAIN CAN COME
  • 00:21:39.150 --> 00:21:40.230
  • I SAW A LADY ON TELEVISION
  • 00:21:42.100 --> 00:21:43.170
  • RECENTLY. SEVERAL YEARS
  • 00:21:43.170 --> 00:21:45.060
  • EARLIER HER SON HAD BEEN
  • 00:21:45.060 --> 00:21:46.200
  • KILLED IN AN ACCIDENT.
  • 00:21:46.200 --> 00:21:48.130
  • THEY ASKED HER HOW SHE WAS
  • 00:21:48.130 --> 00:21:49.220
  • STATEMENT, "YOU NEVER REALLY
  • 00:21:51.090 --> 00:21:53.050
  • GET OVER IT BUT YOU CAN GET
  • 00:21:53.050 --> 00:21:55.130
  • PAST IT." SHE WAS SAYING,
  • 00:21:55.130 --> 00:21:57.230
  • "YES, IT'S DIFFICULT. YES,
  • 00:21:57.230 --> 00:21:59.220
  • THERE WAS A SEASON OF
  • 00:21:59.220 --> 00:22:00.280
  • MOURNING BUT YOU DON'T HAVE
  • 00:22:00.280 --> 00:22:02.080
  • TO STAY IN MOURNING. YOU
  • 00:22:02.080 --> 00:22:03.260
  • DON'T HAVE TO LIVE BITTER.
  • 00:22:03.260 --> 00:22:04.270
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO GET STUCK
  • 00:22:04.270 --> 00:22:06.170
  • IN GRIEF, IN DEPRESSION, YOU
  • 00:22:06.170 --> 00:22:08.160
  • CAN MOVE FORWARD."
  • 00:22:08.160 --> 00:22:09.150
  • AND WHEN YOU GO THROUGH A
  • 00:22:09.150 --> 00:22:11.020
  • LOSS, THINGS HAPPEN YOU DON'T
  • 00:22:11.020 --> 00:22:13.000
  • UNDERSTAND, AND IT'S EASY TO
  • 00:22:13.000 --> 00:22:14.180
  • THINK, "I JUST NEED TO GET
  • 00:22:14.180 --> 00:22:15.160
  • OVER THIS." BUT SOMETIMES
  • 00:22:15.160 --> 00:22:17.110
  • THAT'S TOO STRONG. IT CAN
  • 00:22:17.110 --> 00:22:19.040
  • PUT MORE PRESSURE ON US.
  • 00:22:19.040 --> 00:22:20.220
  • WE THINK, "WHY DO I FEEL
  • 00:22:20.220 --> 00:22:21.200
  • THIS WAY? I MUST BE DOING
  • 00:22:21.200 --> 00:22:22.290
  • SOMETHING WRONG."
  • 00:22:22.290 --> 00:22:23.270
  • TAKE THE PRESSURE OFF.
  • 00:22:23.270 --> 00:22:25.190
  • YOU DON?T HAVE TO GET OVER
  • 00:22:25.190 --> 00:22:26.240
  • IT, JUST GET PAST IT. JUST
  • 00:22:26.240 --> 00:22:29.080
  • KEEP MOVING FORWARD, TAKING
  • 00:22:29.080 --> 00:22:31.000
  • IT ONE DAY AT A TIME.
  • 00:22:31.000 --> 00:22:32.260
  • GOD SAID HE WILL NEVER GIVE
  • 00:22:32.260 --> 00:22:34.070
  • YOU SOMETHING THAT YOU
  • 00:22:34.070 --> 00:22:35.110
  • CANNOT HANDLE. AND YOU MAY
  • 00:22:35.110 --> 00:22:37.090
  • NOT UNDERSTAND WHY IT
  • 00:22:37.090 --> 00:22:38.180
  • HAPPENED BUT THE SCRIPTURE
  • 00:22:38.180 --> 00:22:40.060
  • SAYS, "GOD WILL GIVE US A
  • 00:22:40.060 --> 00:22:41.270
  • PEACE THAT PASSES
  • 00:22:41.270 --> 00:22:43.240
  • UNDERSTANDING."
  • 00:22:43.240 --> 00:22:45.060
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO FIGURE
  • 00:22:45.060 --> 00:22:46.060
  • EVERYTHING OUT. IF YOU'LL
  • 00:22:46.060 --> 00:22:48.030
  • LET GO OF THE QUESTIONS OF
  • 00:22:48.030 --> 00:22:49.250
  • LIFE, YOU WILL HAVE A PEACE
  • 00:22:49.250 --> 00:22:51.290
  • THAT GOES BEYOND WHAT YOU
  • 00:22:51.290 --> 00:22:53.180
  • END OF JESUS' LIFE, HE'D
  • 00:22:55.250 --> 00:22:57.130
  • BEEN BETRAYED BY A DISCIPLE,
  • 00:22:57.130 --> 00:22:59.120
  • MOCKED BY THE SOLDIERS,
  • 00:22:59.120 --> 00:23:00.230
  • FALSELY ACCUSED. NOW, HE
  • 00:23:00.230 --> 00:23:02.260
  • WAS HANGING ON THE CROSS
  • 00:23:02.260 --> 00:23:04.100
  • WEARING A CROWN OF THORNS,
  • 00:23:04.100 --> 00:23:05.280
  • ABOUT TO BREATHE HIS LAST
  • 00:23:05.280 --> 00:23:07.050
  • BREATH. HE DID SOMETHING
  • 00:23:07.050 --> 00:23:08.290
  • SIGNIFICANT. HE COULD HAVE
  • 00:23:08.290 --> 00:23:10.140
  • JUST DIED AND WENT ON TO
  • 00:23:10.140 --> 00:23:11.150
  • HEAVEN AND THAT WAS IT.
  • 00:23:11.150 --> 00:23:13.000
  • BUT HE SAID, "FATHER, BEFORE
  • 00:23:13.000 --> 00:23:14.250
  • ONE LAST THING: FORGIVE
  • 00:23:16.290 --> 00:23:18.270
  • THEM, FOR THEY KNOW NOT
  • 00:23:18.270 --> 00:23:20.150
  • WHAT THEY DO."
  • 00:23:20.150 --> 00:23:21.280
  • THEY DIDN'T ASK FOR
  • 00:23:21.280 --> 00:23:22.270
  • FORGIVENESS. THEY DIDN'T
  • 00:23:22.270 --> 00:23:23.290
  • DESERVE IT. JESUS WAS
  • 00:23:23.290 --> 00:23:25.200
  • SAYING IN EFFECT, "I'M NOT
  • 00:23:25.200 --> 00:23:27.000
  • GOING TO LEAVE THIS EARTH
  • 00:23:27.000 --> 00:23:28.150
  • WITH ANYTHING NEGATIVE IN
  • 00:23:28.150 --> 00:23:29.240
  • ME." HE WAS SHOWING US BY
  • 00:23:29.240 --> 00:23:31.090
  • EXAMPLE HOW WE SHOULD
  • 00:23:31.090 --> 00:23:32.170
  • THE IMPURITIES.
  • 00:23:34.070 --> 00:23:35.160
  • I READ WHERE LEONARDO DAVINCI
  • 00:23:36.020 --> 00:23:39.020
  • WAS PAINTING A PORTRAIT OF
  • 00:23:39.020 --> 00:23:40.100
  • CHRIST. HE LET SOME SMALL
  • 00:23:40.100 --> 00:23:42.030
  • CHILDREN IN THE ROOM TO
  • 00:23:42.030 --> 00:23:43.120
  • WATCH HIM PAINT. ONE OF
  • 00:23:43.120 --> 00:23:44.230
  • THEM ACCIDENTALLY KNOCKED
  • 00:23:44.230 --> 00:23:46.100
  • VERY UPSET AND USHERED
  • 00:23:48.080 --> 00:23:49.200
  • THEM OUT OF THE ROOM.
  • 00:23:49.200 --> 00:23:51.040
  • HE SAT BACK DOWN TO FINISH
  • 00:23:51.040 --> 00:23:53.040
  • BUT HE SAID HE COULD NOT
  • 00:23:53.040 --> 00:23:54.260
  • PAINT THE FACE OF CHRIST
  • 00:23:54.260 --> 00:23:56.270
  • WITH ANGER IN HIS HEART.
  • 00:23:56.270 --> 00:23:59.010
  • THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN
  • 00:23:59.010 --> 00:24:00.020
  • WE HOLD ON TO NEGATIVE.
  • 00:24:00.020 --> 00:24:01.200
  • IT STIFLES OUR CREATIVITY.
  • 00:24:01.200 --> 00:24:03.210
  • WE DON?T DO OUR BEST WORK.
  • 00:24:03.210 --> 00:24:05.110
  • IT'S BECAUSE THERE'S
  • 00:24:05.110 --> 00:24:06.090
  • INFECTION THAT'S SLOWING US
  • 00:24:06.090 --> 00:24:07.240
  • DOWN.
  • 00:24:07.240 --> 00:24:08.220
  • ARE YOU ALLOWING NEGATIVE
  • 00:24:08.220 --> 00:24:10.160
  • THINGS IN YOUR CONTAINER?
  • 00:24:10.160 --> 00:24:12.060

  • 00:24:13.230 --> 00:24:15.190
  • AT YOUR MAXIMUM POTENTIAL.
  • 00:24:15.190 --> 00:24:18.030
  • IF YOU HAVE A LITTLE
  • 00:24:18.030 --> 00:24:19.020
  • BITTERNESS, A LITTLE GUILT,
  • 00:24:19.020 --> 00:24:20.280
  • A LITTLE JEALOUSY, A LITTLE
  • 00:24:20.280 --> 00:24:22.130
  • WORRY; IF YOU ADD UP ALL THE
  • 00:24:22.130 --> 00:24:24.160
  • SPACE THE "LITTLE" IS TAKING,
  • 00:24:24.160 --> 00:24:26.190
  • YOU'RE ONLY OPERATING AT A
  • 00:24:26.190 --> 00:24:28.130
  • FRACTION OF WHAT YOU COULD.
  • 00:24:28.130 --> 00:24:29.230
  • I'M ASKING YOU TO EMPTY ALL
  • 00:24:29.230 --> 00:24:31.280

  • FILL YOUR LIFE WITH GOOD

  • YOU YOUNG AND STRONG.

  • DO YOUR PART AND MAKE ROOM
  • 00:24:38.130 --> 00:24:40.050
  • FOR HIM. EVERY MORNING,
