  • OUT.
  • 00:00:23.250 --> 00:00:25.020
  • I LIKE TO START WITH SOMETHING
  • 00:00:25.020 --> 00:00:25.280
  • FUNNY.
  • 00:00:25.280 --> 00:00:26.240
  • I HEARD ABOUT THIS SCIENTIST.
  • 00:00:26.240 --> 00:00:27.290
  • HE SAID TO GOD, "WE'VE DECIDED
  • 00:00:27.290 --> 00:00:29.100
  • WE NO LONGER NEED YOU.
  • 00:00:29.100 --> 00:00:32.050
  • WE CAN CLONE PEOPLE.
  • 00:00:32.050 --> 00:00:33.200
  • WE CAN TRANSPLANT HEARTS AND DO
  • 00:00:33.200 --> 00:00:35.040
  • ALL KINDS OF THINGS ONCE
  • 00:00:35.040 --> 00:00:36.240
  • CONSIDERED MIRACULOUS."
  • 00:00:36.240 --> 00:00:38.270
  • GOD SAID, "THAT'S FINE.
  • 00:00:38.270 --> 00:00:39.220
  • BUT TO PROVE YOU DON'T NEED ME,
  • 00:00:39.220 --> 00:00:41.140
  • LET'S HAVE A MAN-MAKING CONTEST.
  • 00:00:41.140 --> 00:00:43.270
  • THE ONLY REQUIREMENT IS YOU HAVE
  • 00:00:43.270 --> 00:00:45.150
  • TO MAKE MAN OUT OF DIRT."
  • 00:00:45.150 --> 00:00:47.250
  • THE SCIENTIST SAID, "GREAT!"
  • 00:00:47.250 --> 00:00:49.050
  • HE QUICKLY REACHED DOWN TO PICK
  • 00:00:49.050 --> 00:00:50.070
  • UP A HANDFUL OF DIRT.
  • 00:00:50.070 --> 00:00:51.220
  • GOD SAID, "NOT SO FAST.
  • 00:00:51.220 --> 00:00:52.180
  • GO GET YOUR OWN DIRT."
  • 00:00:52.180 --> 00:00:54.070
  • (LAUGHTER/APPLAUSE)
  • 00:00:54.070 --> 00:00:56.060
  • HOLD UP YOUR BIBLE.
  • 00:00:56.060 --> 00:00:56.240
  • SAY IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT.
  • 00:00:56.240 --> 00:00:58.050
  • THIS IS MY BIBLE.
  • 00:00:58.050 --> 00:00:59.250
  • I AM WHAT IT SAYS I AM.
  • 00:00:59.250 --> 00:01:01.110
  • I HAVE WHAT IT SAYS I HAVE.
  • 00:01:01.110 --> 00:01:02.290
  • I CAN DO WHAT IT SAYS I CAN DO.
  • 00:01:02.290 --> 00:01:05.000
  • TODAY I WILL BE TAUGHT THE WORD
  • 00:01:05.000 --> 00:01:06.170
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:01:06.170 --> 00:01:07.220
  • I BOLDLY CONFESS:
  • 00:01:07.220 --> 00:01:08.230
  • MY MIND IS ALERT.
  • 00:01:08.230 --> 00:01:10.040
  • MY HEART IS RECEPTIVE.
  • 00:01:10.040 --> 00:01:11.160
  • I WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.
  • 00:01:11.160 --> 00:01:12.260
  • IN JESUS' NAME.
  • 00:01:12.260 --> 00:01:14.120
  • GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:01:14.120 --> 00:01:16.130
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY
  • 00:01:16.130 --> 00:01:17.240
  • ABOUT THERE'S ANOTHER INGREDIENT
  • 00:01:17.240 --> 00:01:18.270
  • COMING.
  • 00:01:18.270 --> 00:01:21.000
  • WE ALL FACE DISAPPOINTMENTS IN
  • 00:01:21.000 --> 00:01:22.140
  • LIFE AND SITUATIONS THAT WE
  • 00:01:22.140 --> 00:01:24.020
  • DON'T UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:01:24.020 --> 00:01:25.170
  • IT'S EASY TO GET DISCOURAGED
  • 00:01:25.170 --> 00:01:27.140
  • AND THINK, "WHY DID THAT HAPPEN
  • 00:01:27.140 --> 00:01:29.040
  • TO ME? WHY DID THAT FRIEND
  • 00:01:29.040 --> 00:01:30.220
  • BETRAY ME? WHY DID I GET LAID
  • 00:01:30.220 --> 00:01:32.090
  • OFF? WHY WASN'T I RAISED IN A
  • 00:01:32.090 --> 00:01:34.010
  • GOOD CHILDHOOD LIKE YOU, JOEL?"
  • 00:01:34.220 --> 00:01:37.220
  • NO, LIFE IS NOT ALWAYS FAIR BUT
  • 00:01:37.220 --> 00:01:39.040
  • GOD IS FAIR.
  • 00:01:39.040 --> 00:01:41.150
  • AND HE SAID IN ROMANS 8, "ALL
  • 00:01:41.150 --> 00:01:43.000
  • THINGS WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD
  • 00:01:43.000 --> 00:01:45.280
  • TO THOSE THAT LOVE THE LORD."
  • 00:01:45.280 --> 00:01:47.250
  • THE KEY WORD IS "TOGETHER."
  • 00:01:47.250 --> 00:01:50.170
  • YOU CANNOT ISOLATE ONE PART OF
  • 00:01:50.170 --> 00:01:52.080
  • YOUR LIFE, ONE DIVORCE, ONE BAD
  • 00:01:52.080 --> 00:01:54.190
  • CHILDHOOD, ONE DISAPPOINTMENT.
  • 00:01:55.000 --> 00:01:58.000
  • THAT IN ITSELF MAY NOT BE GOOD
  • 00:01:58.000 --> 00:01:59.200
  • BUT GOD IS NOT FINISHED.
  • 00:01:59.200 --> 00:02:02.120
  • YOUR LIFE IS NOT OVER BECAUSE
  • 00:02:02.120 --> 00:02:03.250
  • YOU HAD A BAD BREAK.
  • 00:02:03.250 --> 00:02:05.150
  • DON'T GET STUCK WHERE YOU ARE.
  • 00:02:05.150 --> 00:02:07.030
  • THERE IS ANOTHER INGREDIENT
  • 00:02:07.030 --> 00:02:08.230
  • COMING.
  • 00:02:08.230 --> 00:02:10.020
  • THAT MEANS THE RIGHT PEOPLE,
  • 00:02:10.020 --> 00:02:11.150
  • THE RIGHT OPPORTUNITIES, ARE
  • 00:02:11.150 --> 00:02:12.270
  • IN YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:02:12.270 --> 00:02:14.180
  • IF YOU'LL GET YOUR PASSION BACK
  • 00:02:14.180 --> 00:02:15.290
  • AND START MOVING FORWARD YOU'LL
  • 00:02:15.290 --> 00:02:17.100
  • SEE WHAT GOD PROMISED.
  • 00:02:17.100 --> 00:02:19.100
  • IT WILL ALL COME TOGETHER AND
  • 00:02:19.100 --> 00:02:21.060
  • WORK OUT FOR YOUR GOOD.
  • 00:02:21.060 --> 00:02:23.180
  • WHEN OUR CHILDREN WERE SMALL
  • 00:02:23.180 --> 00:02:25.020
  • ONE OF THEIR FAVORITE THINGS TO
  • 00:02:25.020 --> 00:02:26.070
  • DO WAS MAKE CHOCOLATE CHIP
  • 00:02:26.070 --> 00:02:27.200
  • COOKIES.
  • 00:02:27.200 --> 00:02:29.050
  • WE HAD DONE IT SO MUCH WE DIDN'T
  • 00:02:29.050 --> 00:02:30.190
  • EVEN HAVE TO LOOK AT THE RECIPE.
  • 00:02:30.190 --> 00:02:32.240
  • WE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT TO PUT IN.
  • 00:02:32.240 --> 00:02:34.160
  • JONATHAN, JUST FIVE OR SIX YEARS
  • 00:02:34.160 --> 00:02:37.000
  • OLD, HE WOULD GET THE BROWN
  • 00:02:37.000 --> 00:02:37.280
  • SUGAR, THE BUTTER, THE EGGS.
  • 00:02:37.280 --> 00:02:39.290
  • LITTLE ALEXANDRA, JUST THREE
  • 00:02:39.290 --> 00:02:41.160
  • YEARS OLD, SHE WOULD GET THE
  • 00:02:41.160 --> 00:02:42.250
  • FLOUR, BAKING SODA, VANILLA.
  • 00:02:42.250 --> 00:02:45.020
  • WE WERE VERY PRECISE TO PUT IN
  • 00:02:45.020 --> 00:02:47.080
  • THE EXACT AMOUNT IN THE EXACT
  • 00:02:47.080 --> 00:02:49.110
  • ORDER IT WAS CALLED FOR.
  • 00:02:49.180 --> 00:02:52.180
  • BUT ONE TIME, ABOUT HALF-WAY
  • 00:02:52.180 --> 00:02:53.260
  • THROUGH MAKING A BATCH OF
  • 00:02:53.260 --> 00:02:54.290
  • COOKIES, I REALIZED THAT WE
  • 00:02:54.290 --> 00:02:56.280
  • DIDN'T HAVE ANY BAKING SODA.
  • 00:02:56.280 --> 00:02:58.230
  • I DIDN'T FEEL LIKE GOING UP TO
  • 00:02:58.230 --> 00:02:59.130
  • THE STORE.
  • 00:02:59.130 --> 00:03:00.160
  • SO WE DECIDED TO NOT PUT THE
  • 00:03:00.160 --> 00:03:01.140
  • BAKING SODA IN.
  • 00:03:01.140 --> 00:03:03.060
  • I THOUGHT, "NO BIG DEAL. IT'S
  • 00:03:03.060 --> 00:03:04.120
  • JUST A TEASPOON."
  • 00:03:04.120 --> 00:03:05.200
  • WE HAD PUT TWO AND HALF CUPS OF
  • 00:03:05.200 --> 00:03:07.010
  • FLOUR. WHAT DIFFERENCE WAS A
  • 00:03:07.010 --> 00:03:08.210
  • LITTLE TEASPOON FULL GOING TO
  • 00:03:08.210 --> 00:03:10.020
  • MAKE?
  • 00:03:10.020 --> 00:03:11.070
  • BUT WHEN WE TOOK THE COOKIES OUT
  • 00:03:11.070 --> 00:03:13.000
  • OF THE OVEN THEY WERE AS FLAT AS
  • 00:03:13.000 --> 00:03:14.050
  • COULD BE. THEY HAD NOT RISEN
  • 00:03:14.050 --> 00:03:15.280
  • ONE BIT; TOTALLY TASTELESS.
  • 00:03:15.280 --> 00:03:18.120
  • WHAT WAS THE PROBLEM?
  • 00:03:18.120 --> 00:03:19.280
  • AN INGREDIENT WAS LEFT OUT.
  • 00:03:19.280 --> 00:03:21.280
  • A SMALL AMOUNT MADE A HUGE
  • 00:03:21.280 --> 00:03:23.060
  • DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:03:23.060 --> 00:03:25.030
  • SOME PEOPLE ARE BITTER ON LIFE
  • 00:03:25.030 --> 00:03:26.290
  • BECAUSE THEY HAVEN'T WAITED FOR
  • 00:03:26.290 --> 00:03:28.260
  • ALL THE INGREDIENTS TO COME
  • 00:03:28.260 --> 00:03:30.030
  • TOGETHER.
  • 00:03:30.030 --> 00:03:31.190
  • GOD IS THE MASTER CHEF.
  • 00:03:31.190 --> 00:03:33.260
  • THE RECIPE FOR YOUR LIFE HAS
  • 00:03:33.260 --> 00:03:35.140
  • ALREADY BEEN ESTABLISHED.
  • 00:03:35.140 --> 00:03:37.130
  • THE SCRIPTURE TALKS ABOUT HOW
  • 00:03:37.130 --> 00:03:39.020
  • GOD HAS PLANNED YOUR DAYS FOR
  • 00:03:39.020 --> 00:03:41.060
  • GOOD FROM BEGINNING TO END.
  • 00:03:41.060 --> 00:03:43.020
  • GOD KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT TO ADD
  • 00:03:43.020 --> 00:03:44.240
  • AND WHEN TO ADD IT.
  • 00:03:44.240 --> 00:03:46.290
  • HE'S NOT GOING TO DO LIKE I DID
  • 00:03:46.290 --> 00:03:48.060
  • AND LEAVE OUT AN IMPORTANT
  • 00:03:48.060 --> 00:03:49.290
  • INGREDIENT.
  • 00:03:49.290 --> 00:03:51.090
  • HE IS GOING TO PUT IN JUST THE
  • 00:03:51.090 --> 00:03:52.040
  • RIGHT AMOUNT AT JUST THE RIGHT
  • 00:03:52.040 --> 00:03:53.190
  • TIME SO YOU CAN BECOME
  • 00:03:53.190 --> 00:03:55.230
  • EVERYTHING HE'S CREATED YOU
  • 00:03:55.230 --> 00:03:57.030
  • TO BE.
  • 00:03:57.030 --> 00:03:58.150
  • BUT SOMETIMES IN LIFE IT MAY
  • 00:03:58.150 --> 00:03:59.210
  • FEEL LIKE THINGS ARE FLAT.
  • 00:03:59.210 --> 00:04:01.140
  • IT'S FLAT IN YOUR CAREER, FLAT
  • 00:04:01.140 --> 00:04:03.020
  • IN YOUR MARRIAGE, FLAT IN YOUR
  • 00:04:03.020 --> 00:04:04.000
  • FINANCES.
  • 00:04:04.000 --> 00:04:05.150
  • BUT DON'T GET DISCOURAGED.
  • 00:04:05.150 --> 00:04:06.200
  • THERE'S ANOTHER INGREDIENT
  • 00:04:06.200 --> 00:04:07.250
  • COMING.
  • 00:04:07.250 --> 00:04:09.080
  • ALL GOD HAS TO DO IS ADD SOME OF
  • 00:04:09.080 --> 00:04:11.000
  • HIS BAKING SODA AND YOU'LL RISE
  • 00:04:11.000 --> 00:04:12.250
  • TO A NEW LEVEL. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:04:12.250 --> 00:04:15.210
  • YOU MAY HAVE SEEN THE CHEF ON
  • 00:04:15.210 --> 00:04:16.170
  • TELEVISION, CHEF EMERIL.
  • 00:04:16.170 --> 00:04:18.270
  • HE'S VERY ANIMATED.
  • 00:04:18.270 --> 00:04:20.170
  • WHENEVER HE ADDS AN INGREDIENT
  • 00:04:20.170 --> 00:04:21.270
  • HE SAYS, "BAM!"
  • 00:04:21.270 --> 00:04:23.200
  • JUST IMAGINE AT THE RIGHT TIME
  • 00:04:23.200 --> 00:04:25.090
  • GOD, "BAM!" ADDS A LITTLE FAVOR
  • 00:04:25.090 --> 00:04:26.230
  • TO YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:04:26.230 --> 00:04:28.170
  • IT'S NOT FLAT ANYMORE. THINGS
  • 00:04:28.170 --> 00:04:29.190
  • BEGIN TO TAKE OFF. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:04:29.190 --> 00:04:30.270
  • "BAM!" A GOOD BREAK.
  • 00:04:30.270 --> 00:04:32.190
  • "BAM!" A HEALING.
  • 00:04:32.190 --> 00:04:34.150
  • YOU'RE LONELY. THAT PERSON LEFT
  • 00:04:34.150 --> 00:04:35.180
  • YOU.
  • 00:04:35.180 --> 00:04:36.120
  • "BAM!" A DIVINE CONNECTION.
  • 00:04:36.120 --> 00:04:38.040
  • SOMEBODY BETTER.
  • 00:04:38.040 --> 00:04:39.120
  • MAYBE YOUR CHILD IS OFF COURSE.
  • 00:04:39.120 --> 00:04:41.210
  • YOU THINK, "JOEL, I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:04:41.210 --> 00:04:42.200
  • WHAT I DID WRONG. I RAISED HIM
  • 00:04:42.200 --> 00:04:43.290
  • IN CHURCH. I JUST DON'T
  • 00:04:43.290 --> 00:04:44.290
  • UNDERSTAND IT."
  • 00:04:44.290 --> 00:04:46.060
  • NO, YOU DIDN'T DO ANYTHING
  • 00:04:46.060 --> 00:04:47.110
  • WRONG. RELAX. THERE'S A "BAM!"
  • 00:04:47.110 --> 00:04:48.220
  • COMING.
  • 00:04:48.220 --> 00:04:50.160
  • GOD KNOWS HOW TO GET HIM ON THE
  • 00:04:50.160 --> 00:04:51.280
  • RIGHT COURSE. HE'S NOT GOING TO
  • 00:04:51.280 --> 00:04:53.010
  • STAY IN THE PIT.

  • 00:05:14.200 --> 00:05:15.210
  • GOING TO CAUSE EVERYTHING TO
  • 00:05:15.210 --> 00:05:17.120
  • MAKE SENSE.
  • 00:05:17.120 --> 00:05:19.280
  • WHEN GOD BRINGS IT ALL TOGETHER
  • 00:05:19.280 --> 00:05:22.090
  • AND YOU SEE THE FULLNESS OF WHAT
  • 00:05:22.090 --> 00:05:24.040
  • HE WAS DOING YOU'RE NOT GOING TO
  • 00:05:24.040 --> 00:05:26.000
  • WORRY ABOUT WHO HURT YOU, WHAT
  • 00:05:26.000 --> 00:05:28.010
  • YOU LOST, HOW UNFAIR IT WAS.
  • 00:05:28.010 --> 00:05:30.170
  • YOU'RE GOING TO LOOK BACK AND
  • 00:05:30.170 --> 00:05:31.160
  • SAY, "WOW, GOD! YOU'RE AMAZING!
  • 00:05:31.160 --> 00:05:34.040
  • YOU HAD IT ALL FIGURED OUT.
  • 00:05:34.040 --> 00:05:35.180
  • YOUR PLAN WAS BETTER THAN MY
  • 00:05:35.180 --> 00:05:37.010
  • PLAN. YOU GAVE ME BEAUTY FOR
  • 00:05:37.010 --> 00:05:39.020
  • ASHES. YOU MADE A WAY WHEN I
  • 00:05:39.020 --> 00:05:41.040
  • DIDN'T SEE A WAY. YOU HAD JUST
  • 00:05:41.040 --> 00:05:43.050
  • THE RIGHT PEOPLE SHOW UP AT
  • 00:05:43.050 --> 00:05:44.290
  • JUST THE RIGHT TIME."
  • 00:05:44.290 --> 00:05:47.240
  • WHY DON'T YOU TRUST HIM?
  • 00:05:47.240 --> 00:05:49.010
  • YOU MAY NOT UNDERSTAND SOMETHING
  • 00:05:49.010 --> 00:05:50.260
  • RIGHT NOW BUT ONE DAY YOU WILL.
  • 00:05:50.260 --> 00:05:53.020
  • IT'S GOING TO ALL COME TOGETHER.
  • 00:05:53.020 --> 00:05:55.090
  • BUT THE MISTAKE WE MAKE TOO
  • 00:05:55.090 --> 00:05:56.120
  • OFTEN IS WE ISOLATE ONE INCIDENT
  • 00:05:56.120 --> 00:05:59.080
  • AND IT CAUSES US TO LOSE OUR
  • 00:05:59.080 --> 00:06:00.270
  • PASSION.
  • 00:06:00.270 --> 00:06:02.150
  • I HAD A LADY TELL ME RECENTLY
  • 00:06:02.150 --> 00:06:03.290
  • HOW HER HUSBAND OF MANY YEARS
  • 00:06:03.290 --> 00:06:06.130
  • LEFT HER FOR ANOTHER WOMAN.
  • 00:06:06.130 --> 00:06:08.100
  • SHE WAS SO DEVASTATED.
  • 00:06:08.100 --> 00:06:10.020
  • SHE COULDN'T UNDERSTAND IT.
  • 00:06:10.020 --> 00:06:11.160
  • AND I KNOW THAT'S HARD.
  • 00:06:11.160 --> 00:06:12.230
  • THAT'S PAINFUL.
  • 00:06:12.230 --> 00:06:14.080
  • BUT THAT IS NOT THE END.
  • 00:06:14.080 --> 00:06:16.190
  • IF THAT PERSON LEAVING WAS GOING
  • 00:06:16.190 --> 00:06:17.260
  • TO KEEP YOU FROM YOUR DESTINY
  • 00:06:17.260 --> 00:06:20.010
  • GOD WOULD HAVE NEVER ALLOWED IT.
  • 00:06:20.010 --> 00:06:22.260
  • THIS MAY BE HARD TO SWALLOW BUT
  • 00:06:22.260 --> 00:06:24.070
  • IF THEY LEFT YOU, YOU DIDN'T
  • 00:06:24.070 --> 00:06:25.290
  • NEED THEM. IF THEY WALKED AWAY
  • 00:06:25.290 --> 00:06:27.220
  • THEY WEREN'T A PART OF YOUR
  • 00:06:27.220 --> 00:06:29.250
  • DESTINY. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:06:29.250 --> 00:06:32.160
  • THERE'S ANOTHER INGREDIENT
  • 00:06:32.160 --> 00:06:33.200
  • COMING, SOMEBODY BETTER,
  • 00:06:33.200 --> 00:06:36.040
  • SOMEBODY THAT GOD ORDAINED,
  • 00:06:36.040 --> 00:06:37.250
  • SOMEBODY THAT WILL TREAT YOU
  • 00:06:37.250 --> 00:06:39.050
  • LIKE A QUEEN OR A KING, SOMEBODY
  • 00:06:39.050 --> 00:06:41.040
  • THAT WILL VALUE YOU, CELEBRATE
  • 00:06:41.040 --> 00:06:42.280
  • YOU, SOMEBODY THAT CANNOT LIVE
  • 00:06:42.280 --> 00:06:44.180
  • WITHOUT YOU.
  • 00:06:44.180 --> 00:06:46.200
  • THERE IS SOMETHING CALLED THE
  • 00:06:46.200 --> 00:06:47.180
  • "GIFT OF GOODBYE." (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:06:47.240 --> 00:06:50.240
  • THEY MAY THINK... THEY MAY
  • 00:06:50.240 --> 00:06:51.280
  • THINK THEY DID YOU HARM BUT
  • 00:06:51.280 --> 00:06:53.220
  • THEY'RE DOING YOU A FAVOR.
  • 00:06:53.220 --> 00:06:56.090
  • BLOW THEM A KISS AND DON'T EVER
  • 00:06:56.150 --> 00:06:59.150
  • LOOK BACK. JUST KEEP MOVING
  • 00:06:59.150 --> 00:07:00.260
  • FORWARD. (CHEERING/APPLAUSE)
  • 00:07:00.260 --> 00:07:01.270
  • NOW SOME OF YOU, YOU'VE GOT TO
  • 00:07:01.270 --> 00:07:02.250
  • QUIT MOURNING OVER WHAT YOU'VE
  • 00:07:02.250 --> 00:07:03.280
  • LOST.
  • 00:07:03.280 --> 00:07:05.120
  • QUIT BEING DISCOURAGED OVER WHAT
  • 00:07:05.120 --> 00:07:06.090
  • DIDN'T WORK OUT.
  • 00:07:06.090 --> 00:07:07.160
  • IT'S NOT OVER UNTIL GOD SAYS
  • 00:07:07.160 --> 00:07:08.160
  • IT'S OVER.
  • 00:07:08.160 --> 00:07:10.000
  • I HEARD SOMEBODY SAY, "GOD
  • 00:07:10.000 --> 00:07:11.040
  • ALWAYS ENDS ON, 'ALL IS WELL.'"
  • 00:07:12.040 --> 00:07:15.040
  • SO IF ALL IS NOT WELL IN YOUR
  • 00:07:15.040 --> 00:07:16.150
  • LIFE THAT SIMPLY MEANS IT IS NOT
  • 00:07:16.150 --> 00:07:18.140
  • THE END.
  • 00:07:18.140 --> 00:07:19.220
  • KEEP MOVING FORWARD.
  • 00:07:19.220 --> 00:07:21.100
  • ANOTHER INGREDIENT IS COMING.
  • 00:07:21.100 --> 00:07:23.060
  • A LOT OF TIMES, LIKE THIS LADY,
  • 00:07:23.060 --> 00:07:25.070
  • PEOPLE ARE SOURED ON LIFE
  • 00:07:25.070 --> 00:07:26.270
  • BECAUSE THEY CAN'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:07:26.270 --> 00:07:28.240
  • WHY SOMETHING HAS HAPPENED.
  • 00:07:28.240 --> 00:07:30.210
  • BUT EVERYTHING IS NOT GOING TO
  • 00:07:30.210 --> 00:07:31.200
  • MAKE SENSE IF YOU ISOLATE IT.
  • 00:07:31.200 --> 00:07:34.140
  • IF YOU LOOK AT IT JUST ON ITS
  • 00:07:34.140 --> 00:07:36.240
  • OWN YOU'LL GET DISCOURAGED.
  • 00:07:36.240 --> 00:07:37.150
  • YOU HAVE TO REMIND YOURSELF IT
  • 00:07:37.150 --> 00:07:38.080
  • HAS NOT YET ALL COME TOGETHER.
  • 00:07:38.130 --> 00:07:41.130
  • IT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO MAKE SENSE
  • 00:07:41.130 --> 00:07:42.160
  • BY ITSELF.
  • 00:07:42.160 --> 00:07:44.260
  • IMAGINE MY CHILDREN, WHEN THEY
  • 00:07:44.260 --> 00:07:46.220
  • WERE SMALLER, WANTED TO MAKE
  • 00:07:46.220 --> 00:07:47.280
  • SOME CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES BUT
  • 00:07:47.280 --> 00:07:49.060
  • WE DIDN'T HAVE TIME TO BAKE
  • 00:07:49.060 --> 00:07:50.090
  • THEM.
  • 00:07:50.090 --> 00:07:51.280
  • SO I GOT THE INGREDIENTS OUT AND
  • 00:07:51.280 --> 00:07:53.080
  • GAVE THEM TO JONATHAN TO EAT
  • 00:07:53.080 --> 00:07:54.280
  • SEPARATELY.
  • 00:07:55.130 --> 00:07:58.130
  • "JONATHAN, HERE'S A CUP OF BROWN
  • 00:07:58.130 --> 00:07:59.090
  • SUGAR. EAT THIS. WASH IT DOWN
  • 00:07:59.090 --> 00:08:00.190
  • WITH THIS TABLESPOON OF
  • 00:08:00.190 --> 00:08:01.230
  • VANILLA. HERE'S THE RAW EGGS.
  • 00:08:01.230 --> 00:08:04.070
  • WHEN YOU'RE DONE WITH THAT
  • 00:08:04.070 --> 00:08:05.050
  • HERE'S TWO CUPS OF FLOUR.
  • 00:08:05.050 --> 00:08:06.180
  • OKAY, HERE'S YOUR TWO STICKS OF
  • 00:08:06.180 --> 00:08:07.210
  • BUTTER. NOW, JONATHAN.
  • 00:08:07.210 --> 00:08:09.080
  • YOU OFFICIALLY HAVE CHOCOLATE
  • 00:08:09.080 --> 00:08:10.100
  • CHIP COOKIES ON THE INSIDE."
  • 00:08:10.100 --> 00:08:12.070
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:08:12.070 --> 00:08:14.200
  • SOMEHOW IT DOESN'T WORK THAT
  • 00:08:14.200 --> 00:08:15.260
  • WAY.
  • 00:08:15.260 --> 00:08:16.210
  • THE KEY IS, IT HAS TO ALL BE
  • 00:08:16.210 --> 00:08:17.240
  • MIXED TOGETHER.
  • 00:08:17.240 --> 00:08:20.060
  • IN THE SAME WAY, YOU CANNOT
  • 00:08:20.060 --> 00:08:21.090
  • ISOLATE ONE PART OF YOUR LIFE
  • 00:08:21.090 --> 00:08:23.230
  • AND THINK, "OH, THIS TASTES BAD.
  • 00:08:23.230 --> 00:08:25.260
  • I WENT THROUGH A DIVORCE.
  • 00:08:25.260 --> 00:08:27.110
  • I HAD A LOUSY CHILDHOOD.
  • 00:08:27.110 --> 00:08:29.100
  • I STARTED A BUSINESS THAT
  • 00:08:29.100 --> 00:08:30.290
  • FAILED. I HAD TO TAKE A YEAR OF
  • 00:08:30.290 --> 00:08:32.100
  • CHEMOTHERAPY. LOOK WHAT I'VE
  • 00:08:32.100 --> 00:08:33.090
  • BEEN THROUGH."
  • 00:08:33.090 --> 00:08:34.210
  • THAT'S NOT SUPPOSED TO TASTE
  • 00:08:34.210 --> 00:08:36.040
  • GOOD BY ITSELF.
  • 00:08:36.040 --> 00:08:37.110
  • YOU'VE GOT TO WAIT FOR GOD TO
  • 00:08:37.110 --> 00:08:38.230
  • BRING IT ALL TOGETHER.
  • 00:08:38.230 --> 00:08:40.170
  • HE'S GOT ANOTHER INGREDIENT THAT
  • 00:08:40.170 --> 00:08:41.230
  • HE'S GOING TO ADD TO YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:08:41.230 --> 00:08:43.190
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:08:43.190 --> 00:08:45.010
  • THAT PERSON THAT LEFT YOU,
  • 00:08:45.010 --> 00:08:46.190
  • THAT'S PAINFUL. THAT'S BITTER
  • 00:08:46.190 --> 00:08:48.060
  • ON ITS OWN.
  • 00:08:48.060 --> 00:08:50.050
  • BUT WHEN GOD BRINGS IT ALL
  • 00:08:50.050 --> 00:08:51.070
  • TOGETHER AND BRINGS YOU SOMEBODY
  • 00:08:51.070 --> 00:08:53.080
  • GREATER THAN YOU EVER DREAMED
  • 00:08:53.080 --> 00:08:54.280
  • OF, YOU'RE NOT EVEN GOING TO
  • 00:08:54.280 --> 00:08:56.110
  • MISS THAT OLD GOAT THAT LEFT
  • 00:08:56.110 --> 00:08:57.280
  • YOU. (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:08:57.280 --> 00:08:59.230
  • ALL THE BITTERNESS WILL BE
  • 00:08:59.230 --> 00:09:00.180
  • GONE.
  • 00:09:00.180 --> 00:09:01.270
  • IT'S JUST A MATTER OF TIME
  • 00:09:01.270 --> 00:09:02.280
  • BEFORE IT COMES TOGETHER.
  • 00:09:02.280 --> 00:09:04.190
  • THE PERSON THAT LIED ABOUT YOU,
  • 00:09:04.190 --> 00:09:06.130
  • TRIED TO RUIN YOUR REPUTATION,
  • 00:09:06.130 --> 00:09:08.000
  • BY ITSELF THAT TASTES BAD.
  • 00:09:08.000 --> 00:09:10.090
  • BUT THAT'S ONLY ONE INGREDIENT.
  • 00:09:10.090 --> 00:09:12.260
  • GOD KNOWS HOW TO VINDICATE YOU.
  • 00:09:12.260 --> 00:09:14.150
  • GOD KNOWS HOW TO MAKE WRONGS
  • 00:09:14.150 --> 00:09:15.180
  • RIGHT.
  • 00:09:15.180 --> 00:09:16.160
  • HE CAN PREPARE A TABLE BEFORE
  • 00:09:16.160 --> 00:09:17.200
  • YOU IN THE PRESENCE OF YOUR
  • 00:09:17.200 --> 00:09:19.100
  • ENEMIES.
  • 00:09:19.100 --> 00:09:20.200
  • WHEN IT ALL COMES TOGETHER AND
  • 00:09:20.200 --> 00:09:21.260
  • YOU'RE PROMOTED, LIVING YOUR
  • 00:09:21.260 --> 00:09:23.200
  • DREAMS, FULFILLING YOUR DESTINY,
  • 00:09:23.200 --> 00:09:25.260
  • IT WILL TASTE GOOD.
  • 00:09:25.260 --> 00:09:27.260
  • WHEN YOU'RE FACING THAT SICKNESS
  • 00:09:27.260 --> 00:09:29.190
  • AND MAYBE HAVING TO TAKE THE
  • 00:09:29.190 --> 00:09:31.010
  • TREATMENT, IT'S EASY TO THINK,
  • 00:09:31.010 --> 00:09:32.140
  • "MAN, GOD IS NOT EVEN CONCERNED
  • 00:09:32.140 --> 00:09:34.100
  • ABOUT ME. LOOK WHAT I'M GOING
  • 00:09:34.100 --> 00:09:35.090
  • THROUGH."
  • 00:09:35.090 --> 00:09:36.100
  • NO, GOD HAS YOU IN THE PALM OF
  • 00:09:36.100 --> 00:09:37.130
  • HIS HAND.
  • 00:09:37.130 --> 00:09:38.290
  • HE SAID, "NO WEAPON FORMED
  • 00:09:38.290 --> 00:09:40.040
  • AGAINST YOU WILL PROSPER."
  • 00:09:40.040 --> 00:09:42.040
  • "WEEPING MAY ENDURE FOR A
  • 00:09:42.040 --> 00:09:43.170
  • NIGHT-" HERE'S THE PROMISE "-JOY
  • 00:09:43.170 --> 00:09:44.280
  • IS COMING IN THE MORNING."
  • 00:09:45.080 --> 00:09:48.080
  • GOD IS SAYING "IT MAY GET TOUGH.
  • 00:09:48.080 --> 00:09:50.150
  • YOU MAY FACE SOME SITUATIONS
  • 00:09:50.150 --> 00:09:53.130
  • THAT ARE BITTER. BUT IF YOU'LL
  • 00:09:53.130 --> 00:09:54.270
  • STAY IN FAITH AND NOT LET THE
  • 00:09:54.270 --> 00:09:56.130
  • BITTERNESS GET ON THE INSIDE,"
  • 00:09:56.130 --> 00:09:58.180
  • GOD SAYS, "I'M NOT AT A LOSS.
  • 00:09:58.180 --> 00:10:00.250
  • I HAVE ANOTHER INGREDIENT THAT
  • 00:10:00.250 --> 00:10:02.090
  • CAN TURN THE BITTER INTO SWEET."
  • 00:10:02.180 --> 00:10:05.180
  • SEVERAL YEARS AFTER VICTORIA AND
  • 00:10:05.180 --> 00:10:07.090
  • I WERE MARRIED WE RECEIVED AN
  • 00:10:07.090 --> 00:10:08.270
  • UNEXPECTED TAX BILL IN THE MAIL.
  • 00:10:08.270 --> 00:10:11.250
  • THE MAN THAT WAS DOING OUR TAX
  • 00:10:11.250 --> 00:10:13.120
  • RETURNS LIVED IN ANOTHER STATE.
  • 00:10:13.120 --> 00:10:15.130
  • HE WASN'T FAMILIAR WITH A
  • 00:10:15.130 --> 00:10:16.240
  • CERTAIN TAX LAW IN TEXAS.
  • 00:10:16.240 --> 00:10:19.070
  • NOW WE OWED THOUSANDS AND
  • 00:10:19.070 --> 00:10:20.120
  • THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.
  • 00:10:20.120 --> 00:10:21.280
  • TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, OVER
  • 00:10:21.280 --> 00:10:23.070
  • HALF OF WHAT WE OWED WERE IN
  • 00:10:23.070 --> 00:10:25.010
  • PENALTIES.
  • 00:10:25.010 --> 00:10:27.030
  • I THOUGHT, "GOD, THIS IS NOT
  • 00:10:27.030 --> 00:10:28.110
  • FAIR. I HIRED A PROFESSIONAL.
  • 00:10:28.110 --> 00:10:30.020
  • HE MESSED UP. NOW I'M HAVING TO
  • 00:10:30.020 --> 00:10:31.240
  • PAY FOR HIS MISTAKES."
  • 00:10:31.240 --> 00:10:34.070
  • WE WERE DISCOURAGED.
  • 00:10:34.070 --> 00:10:35.080
  • WE WERE A YOUNG COUPLE.
  • 00:10:35.080 --> 00:10:36.120
  • WE WERE TRYING TO SAVE MONEY
  • 00:10:36.120 --> 00:10:38.080
  • FOR A DOWN PAYMENT ON A HOME.
  • 00:10:38.080 --> 00:10:39.200
  • THIS WAS GOING TO TAKE ALL OF
  • 00:10:39.200 --> 00:10:40.240
  • OUR FUNDS.
  • 00:10:40.240 --> 00:10:42.080
  • WE ENDED UP FINDING THIS MAN TO
  • 00:10:42.080 --> 00:10:43.290
  • HELP US GET IT STRAIGHTENED OUT.
  • 00:10:43.290 --> 00:10:46.010
  • HE WAS A TAX ATTORNEY.
  • 00:10:46.010 --> 00:10:47.170
  • FOR SEVERAL WEEKS HE WAS AT OUR
  • 00:10:47.170 --> 00:10:49.010
  • HOUSE EVERY NIGHT, GOING OVER
  • 00:10:49.010 --> 00:10:50.190
  • THE DOCUMENTS, FILLING OUT NEW
  • 00:10:50.190 --> 00:10:51.250
  • FORMS.
  • 00:10:51.250 --> 00:10:53.120
  • WE WOULD EAT DINNER TOGETHER,
  • 00:10:53.120 --> 00:10:54.250
  • RUN ERRANDS TOGETHER.
  • 00:10:54.250 --> 00:10:56.040
  • WE ENDED UP BECOMING VERY GOOD
  • 00:10:56.040 --> 00:10:57.140
  • FRIENDS.
  • 00:10:57.140 --> 00:10:59.000
  • TEN YEARS LATER, I WAS WORKING
  • 00:10:59.000 --> 00:11:00.100
  • IN THE TELEVISION DEPARTMENT
  • 00:11:00.100 --> 00:11:01.250
  • HERE AT LAKEWOOD.
  • 00:11:01.250 --> 00:11:03.090
  • A MAN STOPPED ME BEFORE SERVICE
  • 00:11:03.090 --> 00:11:05.160
  • AND SAID, "JOEL, MY COUSIN HAS A
  • 00:11:05.160 --> 00:11:07.030
  • CONSTRUCTION PERMIT FOR THE LAST
  • 00:11:07.030 --> 00:11:08.210
  • FULL-POWER COMMERCIAL TELEVISION
  • 00:11:08.250 --> 00:11:11.250
  • STATION IN HOUSTON. HE'D LIKE
  • 00:11:11.250 --> 00:11:13.060
  • YOU TO BE A PART OF IT."
  • 00:11:13.060 --> 00:11:15.130
  • AS YOU KNOW, A TV STATION IN A
  • 00:11:15.130 --> 00:11:16.150
  • MAJOR MARKET IS EXTREMELY
  • 00:11:16.150 --> 00:11:17.290
  • VALUABLE.
  • 00:11:17.290 --> 00:11:19.190
  • BUT I DIDN'T KNOW WHERE TO
  • 00:11:19.190 --> 00:11:20.140
  • START. I WAS YOUNG.
  • 00:11:20.140 --> 00:11:22.050
  • I THOUGHT, "I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:11:22.050 --> 00:11:23.070
  • ANYTHING ABOUT NEGOTIATING A
  • 00:11:23.070 --> 00:11:24.100
  • CONTRACT FOR A TV STATION."
  • 00:11:24.100 --> 00:11:26.140
  • THEN IT DAWNED ON ME, "I'LL CALL
  • 00:11:26.140 --> 00:11:28.040
  • MY ATTORNEY FRIEND, THE ONE I
  • 00:11:28.040 --> 00:11:30.020
  • MET DURING MY TAX PROBLEM."
  • 00:11:30.020 --> 00:11:32.260
  • IN THREE MONTHS HE HANDED US A
  • 00:11:32.260 --> 00:11:33.210
  • CONTRACT.
  • 00:11:33.210 --> 00:11:35.030
  • THE STATION WAS OURS.
  • 00:11:35.030 --> 00:11:36.070
  • WE PUT IT ON THE AIR.
  • 00:11:36.070 --> 00:11:37.250
  • EVENTUALLY MY FATHER WENT TO BE
  • 00:11:37.250 --> 00:11:39.070
  • WITH THE LORD.
  • 00:11:39.070 --> 00:11:40.130
  • NOW I WAS THE PASTOR.
  • 00:11:40.130 --> 00:11:41.190
  • THREE YEARS LATER, WE ACQUIRED
  • 00:11:41.190 --> 00:11:43.140
  • THE COMPAQ CENTER; THIS PLACE.
  • 00:11:43.140 --> 00:11:46.000
  • WE FOUND OUT IT WAS GOING TO
  • 00:11:46.000 --> 00:11:47.090
  • COST ABOUT $100 MILLION DOLLARS
  • 00:11:47.090 --> 00:11:49.050
  • TO RENOVATE, SO WE DECIDED TO
  • 00:11:49.050 --> 00:11:50.180
  • SELL THE TELEVISION STATION.
  • 00:11:50.180 --> 00:11:53.000
  • WE SOLD IT FOR A HUGE PROFIT.
  • 00:11:53.000 --> 00:11:55.150
  • IT WAS THOSE FUNDS THAT WERE
  • 00:11:55.150 --> 00:11:56.200
  • INSTRUMENTAL IN US RENOVATING
  • 00:11:56.200 --> 00:11:58.160
  • THIS PLACE.
  • 00:11:58.160 --> 00:12:00.100
  • WHAT I WANT YOU TO SEE IS WHEN
  • 00:12:00.100 --> 00:12:01.250
  • IT ALL COMES TOGETHER IT'LL MAKE
  • 00:12:01.250 --> 00:12:03.090
  • SENSE.
  • 00:12:03.090 --> 00:12:05.060
  • THAT TAX PROBLEM ON ITS OWN WAS
  • 00:12:05.060 --> 00:12:07.040
  • VERY BITTER. IT DIDN'T SEEM
  • 00:12:07.040 --> 00:12:08.280
  • FAIR. BUT HAD I NOT HAD THAT
  • 00:12:08.280 --> 00:12:11.070
  • PROBLEM I WOULD HAVE NEVER MET
  • 00:12:11.070 --> 00:12:14.020
  • THE ATTORNEY AND BECOME GOOD
  • 00:12:14.020 --> 00:12:15.060
  • FRIENDS.
  • 00:12:15.060 --> 00:12:16.160
  • WITHOUT THE ATTORNEY, I WOULD
  • 00:12:16.160 --> 00:12:17.160
  • HAVE PROBABLY NEVER PURSUED THE
  • 00:12:17.160 --> 00:12:18.180
  • TV STATION.
  • 00:12:18.180 --> 00:12:20.070
  • WITHOUT THE TELEVISION STATION
  • 00:12:20.070 --> 00:12:21.040
  • WE MAY NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO
  • 00:12:21.040 --> 00:12:22.250
  • RENOVATE THIS FACILITY LIKE WE
  • 00:12:22.250 --> 00:12:24.010
  • REALLY WANTED TO.
  • 00:12:24.010 --> 00:12:25.190
  • FRIENDS, GOD KNOWS WHAT HE IS
  • 00:12:25.190 --> 00:12:27.210
  • DOING. HE'S GOT IT ALL FIGURED
  • 00:12:27.210 --> 00:12:29.060
  • OUT. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:12:29.060 --> 00:12:31.160
  • IN LIFE YOU WILL FACE
  • 00:12:31.160 --> 00:12:32.220
  • SITUATIONS THAT DON'T MAKE
  • 00:12:32.220 --> 00:12:34.090
  • SENSE.
  • 00:12:34.090 --> 00:12:35.010
  • ON THEIR OWN IT SEEMS BITTER.
  • 00:12:35.010 --> 00:12:37.050
  • YOU MAY THINK LIKE I DID,
  • 00:12:37.050 --> 00:12:38.280
  • "GOD, IT'S NOT FAIR. WHY IS
  • 00:12:38.280 --> 00:12:39.290
  • THIS HAPPENING?"
  • 00:12:39.290 --> 00:12:41.140
  • LET ME ASSURE YOU, GOD HAS A
  • 00:12:41.140 --> 00:12:42.220
  • PLAN. THERE'S ANOTHER
  • 00:12:42.220 --> 00:12:44.090
  • INGREDIENT COMING.
  • 00:12:44.090 --> 00:12:46.170
  • SOMEWHERE DOWN THE ROAD, IN A
  • 00:12:46.170 --> 00:12:47.290
  • MONTH, IN A YEAR, IN 20 YEARS,
  • 00:12:48.060 --> 00:12:51.060
  • YOU'RE GOING TO SEE GOD WORK IT
  • 00:12:51.060 --> 00:12:52.090
  • ALL FOR YOUR GOOD.
  • 00:12:52.090 --> 00:12:54.160
  • WHEN YOU FACE THESE SITUATIONS
  • 00:12:54.160 --> 00:12:55.280
  • THAT DON'T MAKE SENSE IT'S VERY
  • 00:12:55.280 --> 00:12:57.040
  • POWERFUL TO SAY, "GOD, I DON'T
  • 00:12:57.040 --> 00:12:59.100
  • UNDERSTAND IT BUT I TRUST YOU.
  • 00:12:59.100 --> 00:13:02.110
  • GOD, IT DOESN'T SEEM FAIR BUT
  • 00:13:02.110 --> 00:13:04.020
  • I KNOW YOU'RE FAIR. I'M NOT
  • 00:13:04.020 --> 00:13:05.220
  • GOING TO GET BITTER. I'M NOT
  • 00:13:05.220 --> 00:13:07.030
  • GOING TO LOSE MY PASSION.
  • 00:13:07.030 --> 00:13:08.240
  • I'M GOING TO KEEP PRESSING
  • 00:13:08.240 --> 00:13:09.280
  • FORWARD KNOWING THAT YOU ARE IN
  • 00:13:09.280 --> 00:13:11.130
  • COMPLETE CONTROL."
  • 00:13:11.130 --> 00:13:13.000
  • HERE'S WHAT I'VE LEARNED.
  • 00:13:13.000 --> 00:13:14.120
  • NOTHING IN LIFE HAPPENS TO YOU;
  • 00:13:14.120 --> 00:13:16.200
  • IT HAPPENS FOR YOU.
  • 00:13:16.200 --> 00:13:18.290
  • GOD WOULDN'T HAVE ALLOWED IT IF
  • 00:13:18.290 --> 00:13:20.150
  • HE DIDN'T HAVE A PURPOSE.
  • 00:13:20.150 --> 00:13:22.160
  • IF THAT PERSON THAT LEFT YOU, IF
  • 00:13:22.160 --> 00:13:24.140
  • THAT BAD BREAK, IF THAT SICKNESS
  • 00:13:24.140 --> 00:13:26.170
  • WAS GOING TO KEEP YOU FROM YOUR
  • 00:13:26.170 --> 00:13:27.200
  • DESTINY, GOD WOULD HAVE NEVER
  • 00:13:27.200 --> 00:13:29.140
  • PERMITTED IT.
  • 00:13:29.140 --> 00:13:31.050
  • THE ENEMY IS NOT IN CONTROL OF
  • 00:13:31.050 --> 00:13:32.120
  • YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:13:32.120 --> 00:13:33.120
  • GOD IS IN CONTROL.
  • 00:13:33.120 --> 00:13:34.210
  • THE ENEMY CAN'T EVEN TOUCH YOU
  • 00:13:34.210 --> 00:13:36.000
  • WITHOUT ASKING GOD FOR
  • 00:13:36.000 --> 00:13:37.140
  • PERMISSION.
  • 00:13:37.140 --> 00:13:38.250
  • KEEP THE RIGHT PERSPECTIVE.
  • 00:13:38.250 --> 00:13:40.080
  • INSTEAD OF GETTING BITTER AND
  • 00:13:40.080 --> 00:13:41.070
  • DISCOURAGED.
  • 00:13:41.070 --> 00:13:42.240
  • NO, OUR ATTITUDE SHOULD BE,
  • 00:13:42.240 --> 00:13:44.040
  • "THIS IS NOT HAPPENING TO ME.
  • 00:13:44.040 --> 00:13:45.100
  • IT'S HAPPENING FOR ME.
  • 00:13:45.100 --> 00:13:47.100
  • GOD SAID HE IS GOING TO TAKE
  • 00:13:47.100 --> 00:13:48.200
  • WHAT'S MEANT FOR MY HARM AND USE
  • 00:13:48.200 --> 00:13:50.160
  • IT TO MY ADVANTAGE.
  • 00:13:50.160 --> 00:13:52.160
  • IT MAY BE BITTER RIGHT NOW BUT I
  • 00:13:52.160 --> 00:13:54.050
  • KNOW A SECRET; ANOTHER
  • 00:13:54.050 --> 00:13:55.100
  • INGREDIENT IS COMING."
  • 00:13:55.100 --> 00:13:57.120
  • I HEARD ABOUT A MAN THAT WAS OUT
  • 00:13:57.120 --> 00:13:58.270
  • IN HIS BOAT AND A BIG STORM CAME
  • 00:13:58.270 --> 00:14:00.210
  • UP AND HIS BOAT CAPSIZED.
  • 00:14:00.220 --> 00:14:03.220
  • HE ENDED UP STRANDED ON A
  • 00:14:03.220 --> 00:14:05.040
  • DESERTED ISLAND.
  • 00:14:05.040 --> 00:14:06.240
  • MONTH AFTER MONTH WENT BY.
  • 00:14:06.240 --> 00:14:07.220
  • HE WAS SO MISERABLE ALL BY
  • 00:14:07.220 --> 00:14:09.060
  • HIMSELF.
  • 00:14:09.060 --> 00:14:11.100
  • JUST WHEN HE THOUGHT IT COULDN'T
  • 00:14:11.100 --> 00:14:12.140
  • GET ANY WORSE, WHEN HE WAS OUT
  • 00:14:12.140 --> 00:14:14.050
  • GATHERING FOOD ONE DAY, HE CAME
  • 00:14:14.050 --> 00:14:16.080
  • BACK AND THE LITTLE THATCHED
  • 00:14:16.080 --> 00:14:18.110
  • ROOF HUT THAT HE BUILT HAD
  • 00:14:18.110 --> 00:14:20.060
  • CAUGHT ON FIRE. HE SAT THERE
  • 00:14:20.060 --> 00:14:22.250
  • AND WATCHED IT BURN TO THE
  • 00:14:22.250 --> 00:14:24.120
  • GROUND. IT WAS LIKE POURING
  • 00:14:24.120 --> 00:14:26.100
  • SALT IN THE WOUNDS.
  • 00:14:26.100 --> 00:14:28.040
  • HE SAID, "GOD, I GIVE UP. I ASK
  • 00:14:28.040 --> 00:14:29.160
  • YOU TO HELP ME AND ONE BAD
  • 00:14:29.160 --> 00:14:31.020
  • THING AFTER ANOTHER HAPPENS."
  • 00:14:31.020 --> 00:14:33.270
  • ABOUT THAT TIME, HE LOOKED WAY
  • 00:14:33.270 --> 00:14:35.080
  • OFF IN THE DISTANCE.
  • 00:14:35.080 --> 00:14:36.110
  • HE SAW A BOAT COMING TOWARD HIM.
  • 00:14:36.110 --> 00:14:38.070
  • HE PERKED UP. IT GOT CLOSER
  • 00:14:38.070 --> 00:14:39.240
  • AND CLOSER.
  • 00:14:39.240 --> 00:14:41.180
  • SURE ENOUGH, IT WAS THE COAST
  • 00:14:41.180 --> 00:14:43.070
  • GUARD, CAME AND RESCUED HIM.
  • 00:14:43.070 --> 00:14:45.050
  • HE WAS SO THRILLED. GOT ON THE
  • 00:14:45.050 --> 00:14:47.080
  • BOAT. GAVE EVERYBODY A BIG HUG.
  • 00:14:47.080 --> 00:14:48.170
  • HE SAID TO THE CAPTAIN, "HOW IN
  • 00:14:48.170 --> 00:14:50.290
  • THE WORLD DID YOU FIND ME?"
  • 00:14:50.290 --> 00:14:53.110
  • THE CAPTAIN SAID, "WE SAW THE
  • 00:14:53.110 --> 00:14:55.000
  • SMOKE FROM THE FIRE THAT YOU
  • 00:14:55.000 --> 00:14:56.120
  • BUILT." (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:14:56.120 --> 00:14:58.230
  • SOMETIMES WHAT WE THINK IS A
  • 00:14:58.230 --> 00:15:00.130
  • DISAPPOINTMENT IS GOD SIMPLY
  • 00:15:00.130 --> 00:15:02.150
  • GETTING US IN POSITION TO GO TO
  • 00:15:02.150 --> 00:15:04.030
  • A NEW LEVEL.
  • 00:15:04.030 --> 00:15:06.090
  • I DIDN'T LIKE THE TAX PROBLEM
  • 00:15:06.090 --> 00:15:07.240
  • BUT I SURE DO LIKE BEING IN THE
  • 00:15:07.240 --> 00:15:09.010
  • COMPAQ CENTER.
  • 00:15:09.010 --> 00:15:10.040
  • (LAUGHTER/APPLAUSE)
  • 00:15:10.040 --> 00:15:11.180
  • WHEN YOUR HUT IS ON FIRE, IF
  • 00:15:11.180 --> 00:15:13.040
  • YOUR HUT EVER GETS ON FIRE, KEEP
  • 00:15:13.040 --> 00:15:15.170
  • THE RIGHT PERSPECTIVE.
  • 00:15:15.170 --> 00:15:17.160
  • DON'T START COMPLAINING.
  • 00:15:17.160 --> 00:15:18.280
  • GOD WOULDN'T HAVE ALLOWED IT
  • 00:15:18.280 --> 00:15:20.140
  • UNLESS HE HAD A PURPOSE.
  • 00:15:20.140 --> 00:15:22.150
  • IT MAY NOT MAKE SENSE RIGHT NOW
  • 00:15:22.150 --> 00:15:23.280
  • BUT ONE DAY WHEN IT COMES
  • 00:15:23.280 --> 00:15:25.110
  • TOGETHER IT WILL MAKE SENSE.
  • 00:15:25.110 --> 00:15:27.200
  • IN THE SCRIPTURE THERE IS A LADY
  • 00:15:27.200 --> 00:15:28.190
  • NAMED NAOMI.
  • 00:15:28.190 --> 00:15:30.220
  • HER NAME MEANS, "MY JOY."
  • 00:15:30.220 --> 00:15:33.090
  • EVERY TIME SOMEONE SAID,
  • 00:15:33.090 --> 00:15:34.260
  • "HELLO, NAOMI" THEY WERE
  • 00:15:34.260 --> 00:15:35.260
  • SAYING, "HELLO, MY JOY."
  • 00:15:35.260 --> 00:15:37.100
  • "GOOD MORNING, NAOMI."
  • 00:15:37.100 --> 00:15:38.230
  • GOOD MORNING, MY JOY.
  • 00:15:38.230 --> 00:15:40.190
  • SHE MUST HAVE BEEN A VERY HAPPY,
  • 00:15:40.190 --> 00:15:41.220
  • JOYFUL PERSON.
  • 00:15:41.220 --> 00:15:44.060
  • BUT NAOMI WENT THROUGH A SERIES
  • 00:15:44.060 --> 00:15:46.020
  • OF LOSSES. HER HUSBAND DIED.
  • 00:15:46.020 --> 00:15:48.120
  • SHE WAS VERY DEVASTATED.
  • 00:15:48.120 --> 00:15:50.050
  • HER SONS WERE KILLED IN A
  • 00:15:50.050 --> 00:15:51.100
  • BATTLE. ALL THESE THINGS CAME
  • 00:15:51.100 --> 00:15:53.040
  • AGAINST HER.
  • 00:15:53.040 --> 00:15:54.290
  • SHE MADE THE MISTAKE OF LETTING
  • 00:15:54.290 --> 00:15:56.220
  • THE BITTERNESS GET ON THE
  • 00:15:56.220 --> 00:15:57.210
  • INSIDE.
  • 00:15:57.210 --> 00:15:59.050
  • YES, THERE'S A PROPER TIME FOR
  • 00:15:59.050 --> 00:16:01.040
  • GRIEVING BUT YOU CAN'T LET A
  • 00:16:01.040 --> 00:16:03.080
  • SEASON OF MOURNING TURN INTO
  • 00:16:03.080 --> 00:16:04.240
  • A LIFETIME OF MOURNING.
  • 00:16:04.240 --> 00:16:07.080
  • HER ATTITUDE WAS, "I'VE BEEN
  • 00:16:07.080 --> 00:16:08.090
  • THROUGH TOO MUCH. MY DREAMS ARE
  • 00:16:08.090 --> 00:16:10.050
  • ALL SHATTERED. NEVER BE HAPPY
  • 00:16:10.050 --> 00:16:12.200
  • AGAIN. JUST LEAVE ME IN MY
  • 00:16:12.200 --> 00:16:14.000
  • PAIN."
  • 00:16:14.000 --> 00:16:15.270
  • SHE WAS SO DISCOURAGED THAT SHE
  • 00:16:15.270 --> 00:16:17.140
  • CHANGED HER NAME FROM NAOMI TO
  • 00:16:17.140 --> 00:16:19.030
  • MARA. MARA MEANS, "SORROW."
  • 00:16:20.190 --> 00:16:23.190
  • NOW WHEN SOMEBODY SAID,
  • 00:16:23.190 --> 00:16:24.170
  • "HELLO, NAOMI" SHE SAID,
  • 00:16:24.170 --> 00:16:25.250
  • "DON'T CALL ME THAT. I DON'T
  • 00:16:25.250 --> 00:16:27.000
  • HAVE ANY JOY. I DON'T HAVE ANY
  • 00:16:27.000 --> 00:16:29.000
  • HOPE. CALL ME BY MY NEW NAME,
  • 00:16:29.000 --> 00:16:30.220
  • SORROW."
  • 00:16:30.220 --> 00:16:33.020
  • LIKE NAOMI, YOU MAY HAVE BEEN
  • 00:16:33.020 --> 00:16:34.250
  • THROUGH A LOSS, MAYBE A DREAM
  • 00:16:34.250 --> 00:16:37.130
  • HAS DIED.
  • 00:16:37.130 --> 00:16:38.110
  • MY CHALLENGE TO YOU IS DON'T LET
  • 00:16:38.110 --> 00:16:40.010
  • LIFE CHANGE YOUR NAME.
  • 00:16:40.010 --> 00:16:42.110
  • THERE'S ANOTHER INGREDIENT
  • 00:16:42.110 --> 00:16:44.040
  • COMING. GOD STILL HAS SOMETHING
  • 00:16:44.040 --> 00:16:45.120
  • GREAT IN YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:16:45.120 --> 00:16:47.070
  • HE HAS NOT FORGOTTEN ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:16:47.070 --> 00:16:49.060
  • GOD SEES EVERY SPARROW, EVERY
  • 00:16:49.060 --> 00:16:51.030
  • LITTLE BIRD THAT FALLS TO THE
  • 00:16:51.030 --> 00:16:52.230
  • GROUND.
  • 00:16:52.230 --> 00:16:54.040
  • HOW MUCH MORE IS GOD CONCERNED
  • 00:16:54.040 --> 00:16:55.160
  • ABOUT YOU?
  • 00:16:55.160 --> 00:16:56.290
  • I'VE LEARNED THE DEPTH OF YOUR
  • 00:16:56.290 --> 00:16:59.100
  • PAST IS AN INDICATION OF THE
  • 00:16:59.100 --> 00:17:01.190
  • HEIGHT OF YOUR FUTURE.
  • 00:17:01.190 --> 00:17:03.110
  • WHEN CONSTRUCTION WORKERS ARE
  • 00:17:03.110 --> 00:17:04.210
  • GOING TO BUILD A LARGE
  • 00:17:04.210 --> 00:17:05.270
  • SKYSCRAPER THEY HAVE TO FIRST GO
  • 00:17:05.270 --> 00:17:07.250
  • DOWN DEEP TO LAY A FOUNDATION.
  • 00:17:07.250 --> 00:17:10.100
  • THE TALLER THE BUILDING THE
  • 00:17:10.100 --> 00:17:11.090
  • DEEPER THE FOUNDATION.
  • 00:17:11.090 --> 00:17:13.270
  • YOU MAY HAVE BEEN THROUGH AN
  • 00:17:13.270 --> 00:17:14.230
  • UNFAIR SITUATION, LOST A LOVED
  • 00:17:14.230 --> 00:17:16.270
  • ONE, FRIEND BETRAYED YOU, YOU'RE
  • 00:17:16.270 --> 00:17:18.210
  • DEALING WITH A SICKNESS.
  • 00:17:18.210 --> 00:17:20.050
  • IT WOULD BE EASY TO GET
  • 00:17:20.050 --> 00:17:21.010
  • DISCOURAGED AND JUST SETTLE
  • 00:17:21.010 --> 00:17:22.100
  • THERE. BUT YOU HAVE TO REALIZE
  • 00:17:22.100 --> 00:17:24.070
  • GOD IS GOING DOWN DEEP BECAUSE
  • 00:17:24.070 --> 00:17:26.110
  • HE HAS SOMETHING BIG IN YOUR
  • 00:17:26.110 --> 00:17:28.170
  • FUTURE.
  • 00:17:28.170 --> 00:17:29.160
  • YOU MAY BE LOW RIGHT NOW BUT HE
  • 00:17:29.160 --> 00:17:31.000
  • IS GETTING YOU PREPARED TO GO
  • 00:17:31.000 --> 00:17:32.110
  • HIGH.
  • 00:17:32.110 --> 00:17:34.020
  • THERE ARE NEW LEVELS OF JOY, NEW
  • 00:17:34.020 --> 00:17:35.170
  • LEVELS OF INFLUENCE, NEW
  • 00:17:35.170 --> 00:17:37.170
  • OPPORTUNITIES, NEW RELATIONSHIPS
  • 00:17:37.170 --> 00:17:39.160
  • UP AHEAD OF YOU.
  • 00:17:39.160 --> 00:17:41.110
  • NOW DON'T DO LIKE SHE DID AND
  • 00:17:41.110 --> 00:17:42.160
  • LET WHAT YOU'VE BEEN THROUGH
  • 00:17:42.160 --> 00:17:44.130
  • BECOME YOUR IDENTITY.
  • 00:17:44.130 --> 00:17:46.190
  • DON'T BECOME KNOWN AS THE PERSON
  • 00:17:46.190 --> 00:17:48.000
  • THAT HAD CANCER, THE PERSON THAT
  • 00:17:48.000 --> 00:17:49.190
  • LOST A LOVED ONE, THE PERSON
  • 00:17:49.190 --> 00:17:50.290
  • THAT WENT THROUGH THAT BITTER
  • 00:17:50.290 --> 00:17:51.220
  • DIVORCE.
  • 00:17:51.220 --> 00:17:53.140
  • NO, THAT'S NOT WHO YOU ARE.
  • 00:17:53.140 --> 00:17:54.250
  • THAT'S WHAT YOU WENT THROUGH.
  • 00:17:54.250 --> 00:17:56.070
  • YOU ARE A CHILD OF THE MOST HIGH
  • 00:17:56.070 --> 00:17:57.230
  • GOD, CREATED IN HIS IMAGE, WITH
  • 00:17:57.230 --> 00:18:00.210
  • A DESTINY TO FULFILL.
  • 00:18:00.210 --> 00:18:02.100
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:18:02.100 --> 00:18:04.000
  • YOUR NAME IS NOT SADNESS,
  • 00:18:04.000 --> 00:18:05.170
  • SORROW, DEFEAT, MEDIOCRITY.
  • 00:18:05.170 --> 00:18:07.020
  • YOUR NAME IS VICTORY.
  • 00:18:07.020 --> 00:18:08.290
  • YOUR NAME IS JOY.
  • 00:18:08.290 --> 00:18:10.100
  • YOUR NAME IS FAVOR.
  • 00:18:10.100 --> 00:18:11.210
  • YOUR NAME IS ABUNDANCE.
  • 00:18:11.210 --> 00:18:12.250
  • YOUR NAME IS BRIGHT FUTURE.
  • 00:18:12.250 --> 00:18:15.100
  • NO MATTER WHAT LIFE DEALS YOU,
  • 00:18:15.100 --> 00:18:16.260
  • YOU'VE GOT TO HAVE THE ATTITUDE,
  • 00:18:16.260 --> 00:18:18.180
  • "I AM IN IT TO WIN IT. I MAY
  • 00:18:18.180 --> 00:18:20.080
  • HAVE BEEN THROUGH A LOT BUT
  • 00:18:20.080 --> 00:18:21.270
  • I'VE COME TOO FAR TO STOP NOW.
  • 00:18:21.270 --> 00:18:23.270
  • I AM NOT GOING TO GET NEGATIVE.
  • 00:18:23.270 --> 00:18:25.250
  • I'M NOT GOING TO LIVE BITTER.
  • 00:18:25.250 --> 00:18:26.250
  • I'M GOING TO KEEP MOVING
  • 00:18:26.250 --> 00:18:28.070
  • FORWARD. I KNOW WHAT'S IN MY
  • 00:18:28.070 --> 00:18:29.250
  • FUTURE IS GREATER THAN WHAT'S
  • 00:18:29.250 --> 00:18:30.280
  • IN MY PAST." (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:18:30.280 --> 00:18:33.060
  • LISTEN, GOD IS NOT GOING TO
  • 00:18:33.060 --> 00:18:34.080
  • ALLOW ONE EVENT OR ONE PERSON
  • 00:18:34.080 --> 00:18:36.160
  • TO RUIN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:18:36.160 --> 00:18:38.200
  • YOUR DESTINY CANNOT BE STOPPED
  • 00:18:38.200 --> 00:18:40.200
  • BY A BAD BREAK, AN INJUSTICE, AN
  • 00:18:40.200 --> 00:18:43.050
  • UNFAIR SITUATION.
  • 00:18:43.050 --> 00:18:45.110
  • ALL THE FORCES OF DARKNESS
  • 00:18:45.110 --> 00:18:46.270
  • CANNOT STOP WHAT GOD HAS
  • 00:18:46.270 --> 00:18:48.030
  • ORDAINED.
  • 00:18:48.030 --> 00:18:49.290
  • YES, YOU'LL HAVE TO FIGHT OFF
  • 00:18:49.290 --> 00:18:51.070
  • THE BITTERNESS, THE SELF-PITY,
  • 00:18:51.070 --> 00:18:52.240
  • THE RESENTMENT.
  • 00:18:52.240 --> 00:18:53.260
  • BUT IF YOU'LL KEEP MOVING
  • 00:18:53.260 --> 00:18:55.090
  • FORWARD THE RIGHT INGREDIENTS
  • 00:18:55.090 --> 00:18:56.070
  • WILL COME.
  • 00:18:56.070 --> 00:18:58.280
  • THE PSALMIST PUT IT THIS WAY,
  • 00:18:58.280 --> 00:19:00.170
  • "WHEN YOU KEEP YOUR HOPE IN THE
  • 00:19:00.170 --> 00:19:01.290
  • LORD YOU WILL NEVER BE
  • 00:19:01.290 --> 00:19:03.120
  • DISAPPOINTED."
  • 00:19:03.120 --> 00:19:05.150
  • YES, WE MAY HAVE TEMPORARY
  • 00:19:05.150 --> 00:19:07.070
  • SETBACKS.
  • 00:19:07.070 --> 00:19:09.020
  • SURE, WE'LL HAVE TEMPORARY
  • 00:19:09.020 --> 00:19:09.270
  • DISAPPOINTMENTS.
  • 00:19:09.270 --> 00:19:10.280
  • BUT IF YOU'LL KEEP HOPING,
  • 00:19:10.280 --> 00:19:12.060
  • TRUSTING, HONORING GOD, THEN YOU
  • 00:19:12.060 --> 00:19:14.030
  • WILL SEE HOW GOD WILL WORK IT
  • 00:19:14.030 --> 00:19:15.280
  • ALL TOGETHER FOR YOUR GOOD.
  • 00:19:15.280 --> 00:19:18.080
  • YOU WILL NOT BE PERMANENTLY
  • 00:19:18.080 --> 00:19:19.110
  • DISAPPOINTED.
  • 00:19:19.110 --> 00:19:21.080
  • ONE TIME MOSES WAS LEADING THE
  • 00:19:21.080 --> 00:19:22.140
  • PEOPLE OF ISRAEL THROUGH THE
  • 00:19:22.140 --> 00:19:23.130
  • WILDERNESS.
  • 00:19:23.130 --> 00:19:24.210
  • THEY HAD BEEN TRAVELING FOR A
  • 00:19:24.210 --> 00:19:25.190
  • LONG TIME, A GREAT DISTANCE WITH
  • 00:19:25.190 --> 00:19:27.200
  • NO WATER.
  • 00:19:27.200 --> 00:19:29.140
  • THEY WERE EXTREMELY THIRSTY,
  • 00:19:29.140 --> 00:19:30.260
  • TIRED, HOT.
  • 00:19:30.260 --> 00:19:32.150
  • THEY DIDN'T KNOW IF THEY COULD
  • 00:19:32.150 --> 00:19:33.130
  • MAKE IT.
  • 00:19:33.130 --> 00:19:34.210
  • THEY FINALLY CAME TO A RIVER.
  • 00:19:34.210 --> 00:19:36.050
  • THEY WERE SO EXCITED.
  • 00:19:36.050 --> 00:19:38.000
  • IT WAS LIKE A DREAM, AN OASIS.
  • 00:19:38.000 --> 00:19:40.040
  • THEY RUSHED OVER TO GET A DRINK
  • 00:19:40.040 --> 00:19:42.020
  • BUT WHEN THEY TASTED THE WATER
  • 00:19:42.020 --> 00:19:43.080
  • IT WAS BITTER.
  • 00:19:43.080 --> 00:19:44.180
  • THEY COULDN'T DRINK IT.
  • 00:19:44.180 --> 00:19:45.280
  • IT WAS TOO SOUR.
  • 00:19:45.280 --> 00:19:47.090
  • YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW DISAPPOINTED
  • 00:19:47.090 --> 00:19:48.070
  • THEY WERE.
  • 00:19:48.070 --> 00:19:50.010
  • BUT GOD HAD A PLAN.
  • 00:19:50.010 --> 00:19:51.090
  • HE TOLD MOSES TO PUT A CERTAIN
  • 00:19:51.090 --> 00:19:52.260
  • TYPE OF TREE IN THE WATER AND
  • 00:19:52.260 --> 00:19:55.100
  • WHEN HE DID THE BITTER WATERS
  • 00:19:55.100 --> 00:19:57.160
  • WERE TURNED SWEET.
  • 00:19:57.160 --> 00:19:59.100
  • NOW THEY COULD FREELY DRINK AS
  • 00:19:59.100 --> 00:20:00.240
  • MUCH AS THEY WANTED TO.
  • 00:20:00.240 --> 00:20:02.130
  • GOD IS SAYING, "EVEN WHEN LIFE
  • 00:20:02.130 --> 00:20:04.150
  • TURNS OUT BITTER, EVEN WHEN IT'S
  • 00:20:04.150 --> 00:20:06.040
  • UNFAIR, I'M NOT AT A LOSS.
  • 00:20:06.270 --> 00:20:09.270
  • I STILL HAVE AN INGREDIENT THAT
  • 00:20:09.270 --> 00:20:12.000
  • CAN TURN YOUR BITTER WATERS INTO
  • 00:20:12.000 --> 00:20:13.060
  • SWEET."
  • 00:20:13.060 --> 00:20:14.050
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:20:14.050 --> 00:20:15.100
  • THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED TO MY
  • 00:20:15.100 --> 00:20:16.020
  • FATHER. HE WAS MARRIED AT A
  • 00:20:16.020 --> 00:20:17.180
  • VERY EARLY AGE.
  • 00:20:17.180 --> 00:20:19.110
  • UNFORTUNATELY, THE MARRIAGE
  • 00:20:19.110 --> 00:20:20.250
  • DIDN'T WORK OUT. HE WAS
  • 00:20:20.250 --> 00:20:23.040
  • DEVASTATED. HE THOUGHT HIS DAYS
  • 00:20:23.040 --> 00:20:25.020
  • OF MINISTRY WERE OVER.
  • 00:20:25.020 --> 00:20:27.020
  • HE DIDN'T THINK HE WOULD EVER
  • 00:20:27.020 --> 00:20:28.070
  • HAVE A FAMILY.
  • 00:20:28.070 --> 00:20:29.210
  • IT'S LIKE THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:20:29.210 --> 00:20:30.240
  • HE CAME TO THE WATER, THOUGHT
  • 00:20:30.240 --> 00:20:32.010
  • HIS DREAMS WERE COMING TO PASS,
  • 00:20:32.010 --> 00:20:33.280
  • ONLY TO FIND OUT THE WATERS WERE
  • 00:20:34.130 --> 00:20:37.130
  • BITTER. LIFE DIDN'T TURN OUT
  • 00:20:37.130 --> 00:20:38.110
  • THE WAY HE HAD HOPED.
  • 00:20:38.110 --> 00:20:39.280
  • EVERY VOICE TOLD HIM, "YOU'RE A
  • 00:20:39.280 --> 00:20:41.030
  • FAILURE. YOU BLEW IT. NOTHING
  • 00:20:41.030 --> 00:20:43.020
  • GOOD IS IN YOUR FUTURE."
  • 00:20:43.020 --> 00:20:45.000
  • BUT THE SCRIPTURE SAYS,
  • 00:20:45.000 --> 00:20:46.160
  • "GOD'S CALLING IS IRREVOCABLE."
  • 00:20:46.280 --> 00:20:49.280
  • YOU MAY MAKE MISTAKES.
  • 00:20:49.280 --> 00:20:51.230
  • YOU MAY GO THROUGH SOME FAILURES
  • 00:20:51.230 --> 00:20:53.080
  • BUT GOD DOES NOT CHANGE HIS
  • 00:20:53.080 --> 00:20:54.230
  • MIND. HIS CALLING IS STILL ON
  • 00:20:54.230 --> 00:20:56.110
  • YOUR LIFE. HE STILL HAS A
  • 00:20:56.110 --> 00:20:58.140
  • DESTINY FOR YOU TO FULFILL.
  • 00:20:58.140 --> 00:21:01.000
  • IF YOU FALL DOWN YOU'VE GOT TO
  • 00:21:01.000 --> 00:21:03.090
  • GET BACK UP AND GET IN THE GAME.
  • 00:21:03.090 --> 00:21:05.070
  • GOD HAS ANOTHER INGREDIENT THAT
  • 00:21:05.070 --> 00:21:06.180
  • WILL TURN YOUR BITTER WATERS
  • 00:21:06.180 --> 00:21:08.080
  • INTO SWEET. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:21:08.080 --> 00:21:10.180
  • MY FATHER SHOOK OFF THE
  • 00:21:10.180 --> 00:21:11.130
  • SELF-PITY. HE RECEIVED GOD'S
  • 00:21:11.130 --> 00:21:13.070
  • MERCY. HE QUIT LISTENING TO
  • 00:21:13.070 --> 00:21:14.200
  • THE CONDEMNING VOICES.
  • 00:21:14.200 --> 00:21:17.140
  • HE STARTED MOVING FORWARD.
  • 00:21:17.140 --> 00:21:19.230
  • ONE DAY HE WAS AT THE HOSPITAL
  • 00:21:19.230 --> 00:21:20.260
  • VISITING ONE OF HIS CHURCH
  • 00:21:20.260 --> 00:21:22.040
  • MEMBERS.
  • 00:21:22.040 --> 00:21:23.200
  • HE SAW A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG NURSE
  • 00:21:23.200 --> 00:21:25.210
  • THAT HE HAD NEVER SEEN BEFORE.
  • 00:21:25.210 --> 00:21:27.070
  • IT WAS MY MOTHER.
  • 00:21:27.070 --> 00:21:29.020
  • HE WAS SO TAKEN BY HER HE WOULD
  • 00:21:29.020 --> 00:21:30.210
  • LOOK FOR ANY POSSIBLE REASON HE
  • 00:21:30.280 --> 00:21:33.280
  • COULD FIND TO GO UP TO THAT
  • 00:21:33.280 --> 00:21:34.280
  • HOSPITAL.
  • 00:21:34.280 --> 00:21:36.160
