  • WOKE UP IN EXCRUCIATING PAIN,
  • 00:00:10.210 --> 00:00:12.180
  • WAS RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL AND INTO EMERGENCY SURGERY.
  • 00:00:12.210 --> 00:00:16.010
  • - HAD GOD ANSWERED THAT PRAYER,
  • 00:00:16.040 --> 00:00:18.010
  • HAD GOD TAKEN AWAY THE PAIN,
  • 00:00:18.040 --> 00:00:20.010
  • I WOULD NOT HAVE STAYED AT THE HOSPITAL.
  • 00:00:20.040 --> 00:00:22.010
  • HAD GOD TAKEN AWAY THE PAIN
  • 00:00:22.040 --> 00:00:24.010
  • I WOULD HAVE NEVER MADE IT UNTIL FRIDAY
  • 00:00:24.040 --> 00:00:26.060
  • TO CONSULT WITH THAT SURGEON.
  • 00:00:26.090 --> 00:00:28.060
  • HAD GOD TAKEN AWAY THE PAIN
  • 00:00:28.090 --> 00:00:30.060
  • I WOULD HAVE NEVER LET THE SURGEON CUT ME OPEN.
  • 00:00:30.090 --> 00:00:32.130
  • IF IT WEREN'T FOR THE PAIN I WOULD NOT HAVE LIVED.
  • 00:00:32.160 --> 00:00:36.020
  • 00:00:41.090 --> 00:00:47.140

  • 00:01:13.050 --> 00:01:14.070
  • [Applause]
  • 00:01:14.210 --> 00:01:17.210
  • YOU'RE INVITED --
  • 00:01:17.210 --> 00:01:19.030
  • THE TITLE OF HER BOOK
  • 00:01:19.030 --> 00:01:20.190
  • IS UNINVITED
  • 00:01:20.190 --> 00:01:21.220
  • BUT YOU'RE INVITED.
  • 00:01:21.220 --> 00:01:22.230
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:01:22.230 --> 00:01:23.280
  • AND "LIVING LOVED WHEN
  • 00:01:23.280 --> 00:01:25.010
  • YOU FEEL LESS THAN LEFT OUT
  • 00:01:25.010 --> 00:01:26.030
  • AND LONELY."
  • 00:01:26.030 --> 00:01:27.090
  • NOW SHE WAS COMING HERE
  • 00:01:27.090 --> 00:01:28.140
  • SEVERAL WEEKS AGO
  • 00:01:28.140 --> 00:01:29.140
  • AND WE HAD A TREMENDOUS
  • 00:01:29.140 --> 00:01:30.190
  • GROUP OF PEOPLE PLANNING
  • 00:01:30.190 --> 00:01:31.230
  • TO BE HERE TO SEE HER.
  • 00:01:31.230 --> 00:01:33.260
  • I MEAN WITH ALMOST
  • 00:01:33.260 --> 00:01:35.070
  • NO TIME NOTICE
  • 00:01:35.070 --> 00:01:37.100
  • IT'S LIKE LESS THAN 24 HOURS,
  • 00:01:37.100 --> 00:01:39.230
  • "I CAN'T COME."
  • 00:01:39.230 --> 00:01:41.160
  • SHE'S STILL TRYING TO COME
  • 00:01:41.160 --> 00:01:43.220
  • BUT SHE'S A VERY SICK LADY.
  • 00:01:45.170 --> 00:01:48.170
  • SHE'S TRYING TO COME
  • 00:01:48.170 --> 00:01:50.050
  • AND THE DOCTOR IS BASICALLY
  • 00:01:50.050 --> 00:01:51.090
  • SAYING, "YOU'RE NOT GOING."
  • 00:01:51.090 --> 00:01:52.140
  • AND IT IS A GOOD THING
  • 00:01:52.140 --> 00:01:53.220
  • SHE DIDN'T.
  • 00:01:53.220 --> 00:01:55.080
  • WELL, WE'RE GLAD YOU'RE HERE.
  • 00:01:55.080 --> 00:01:56.250
  • WOULD YOU JUST GIVE HER
  • 00:01:56.250 --> 00:01:57.270
  • A REAL GOOD WELCOME?
  • 00:01:57.270 --> 00:01:59.000
  • BECAUSE IT IS,
  • 00:01:59.000 --> 00:02:00.040
  • IN SOME WAYS MAYBE,
  • 00:02:00.040 --> 00:02:01.070
  • IT'S A MIRACLE YOU'RE HERE.
  • 00:02:01.070 --> 00:02:02.200
  • IT JUST ACTUALLY COULD BE.
  • 00:02:02.200 --> 00:02:05.040
  • SO TELL US WHY IN THE WORLD
  • 00:02:05.040 --> 00:02:07.030
  • WE GOT THIS CALL
  • 00:02:07.030 --> 00:02:08.250
  • THAT IT WAS LIKE SUDDENLY,
  • 00:02:08.250 --> 00:02:10.070
  • "I DON'T FEEL GOOD"
  • 00:02:10.070 --> 00:02:11.210
  • BUT TAKE US BEYOND
  • 00:02:11.210 --> 00:02:13.080
  • NOT FEELING SO GOOD.
  • 00:02:13.080 --> 00:02:14.290
  • WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:02:14.290 --> 00:02:16.120
  • I'M A VERY HEALTHY PERSON
  • 00:02:17.200 --> 00:02:19.210
  • SO I'D BEEN FEELING JUST FINE
  • 00:02:19.210 --> 00:02:21.160
  • AND HAD MY WEEK SCHEDULE
  • 00:02:21.160 --> 00:02:23.020
  • AND WAS EXCITED.
  • 00:02:24.070 --> 00:02:25.080
  • I RETURNED HOME FROM A TRIP
  • 00:02:25.080 --> 00:02:26.120
  • ON A SUNDAY EVENING
  • 00:02:26.120 --> 00:02:28.130
  • AND THEN WOKE UP
  • 00:02:28.130 --> 00:02:30.160
  • ON MONDAY MORNING AT 5 AM
  • 00:02:30.160 --> 00:02:32.260
  • IN EXCRUCIATING PAIN.
  • 00:02:32.260 --> 00:02:35.040
  • IT WASN'T JUST
  • 00:02:35.040 --> 00:02:36.240
  • I DON'T FEEL GOOD.
  • 00:02:36.240 --> 00:02:38.110
  • I LOOKED AT MY HUSBAND
  • 00:02:38.110 --> 00:02:39.190
  • AND SAID, "I THINK I'M DYING.
  • 00:02:39.190 --> 00:02:40.220
  • I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:02:40.220 --> 00:02:41.230
  • WHAT'S HAPPENING TO ME
  • 00:02:41.230 --> 00:02:42.230
  • BUT SOMETHING
  • 00:02:42.230 --> 00:02:43.250
  • IS REALLY WRONG."
  • 00:02:43.250 --> 00:02:45.000
  • I NEVER LIKE TO GO
  • 00:02:45.000 --> 00:02:46.050
  • TO THE DOCTOR.
  • 00:02:46.050 --> 00:02:47.060
  • I REALLY DON'T.
  • 00:02:47.060 --> 00:02:48.080
  • SO WHEN I TOLD MY HUSBAND,
  • 00:02:48.080 --> 00:02:49.110
  • "TAKE ME TO THE HOSPITAL,"
  • 00:02:49.110 --> 00:02:51.020
  • HE KNEW SOMETHING
  • 00:02:51.020 --> 00:02:52.150
  • WAS REALLY, REALLY WRONG.
  • 00:02:52.150 --> 00:02:53.270
  • SO OVER THE COURSE
  • 00:02:53.270 --> 00:02:55.070
  • OF SEVERAL DAYS
  • 00:02:55.070 --> 00:02:56.230
  • THE DOCTORS TRIED
  • 00:02:56.230 --> 00:02:58.010
  • TO FIGURE OUT
  • 00:02:58.010 --> 00:02:59.020
  • WHAT WAS HAPPENING TO ME.
  • 00:02:59.020 --> 00:03:00.050
  • I WENT FROM FEELING --
  • 00:03:00.050 --> 00:03:02.170
  • JUST BEING
  • 00:03:02.170 --> 00:03:03.220
  • IN EXCRUCIATING PAIN
  • 00:03:03.220 --> 00:03:04.260
  • TO REALLY NOT DOING WELL
  • 00:03:04.260 --> 00:03:05.270
  • AT ALL;
  • 00:03:05.270 --> 00:03:07.000
  • WOUND UP IN INTENSIVE CARE.
  • 00:03:07.000 --> 00:03:09.200
  • THEY WERE FRANTICALLY
  • 00:03:09.200 --> 00:03:11.100
  • TRYING TO FIGURE OUT
  • 00:03:11.100 --> 00:03:12.150
  • WHAT WAS WRONG WITH ME.
  • 00:03:12.150 --> 00:03:13.200
  • FINALLY, ON FRIDAY,
  • 00:03:13.200 --> 00:03:15.040
  • SO IT TOOK
  • 00:03:15.040 --> 00:03:16.190
  • ALMOST A WHOLE WEEK...
  • 00:03:16.190 --> 00:03:17.240
  • THEY WERE GIVING YOU REALLY
  • 00:03:18.290 --> 00:03:20.010
  • HEAVY DRUGS AND MEDICATION
  • 00:03:20.010 --> 00:03:21.060
  • BECAUSE THE PAIN
  • 00:03:21.060 --> 00:03:22.080
  • WAS SO EXCRUCIATING
  • 00:03:22.080 --> 00:03:23.140
  • BUT THEY COULDN'T SEEM TO EVER
  • 00:03:23.140 --> 00:03:24.150
  • IT JUST WOULD NOT STOP.
  • 00:03:25.220 --> 00:03:26.290
  • Lysa: IT WOULD NOT STOP.
  • 00:03:26.290 --> 00:03:28.220
  • IT WAS INTENSE.
  • 00:03:28.220 --> 00:03:30.070
  • I'VE HAD THREE BABIES.
  • 00:03:30.070 --> 00:03:31.140
  • I HAVE FIVE KIDS, TWO ADOPTED,
  • 00:03:31.140 --> 00:03:32.290
  • BUT THREE BIOLOGICAL
  • 00:03:32.290 --> 00:03:34.090
  • SO I KNOW WHAT PAIN IS.
  • 00:03:34.090 --> 00:03:36.000
  • BUT THIS WAS ON
  • 00:03:36.000 --> 00:03:37.140
  • ANOTHER LEVEL, TRULY.
  • 00:03:37.140 --> 00:03:38.250
  • SO LONG STORY SHORT,
  • 00:03:39.150 --> 00:03:42.150
  • FINALLY ON FRIDAY
  • 00:03:42.150 --> 00:03:43.180
  • THEY CONSULTED A SURGEON
  • 00:03:43.180 --> 00:03:45.120
  • AND PRAISE GOD
  • 00:03:45.120 --> 00:03:46.230
  • FOR THIS SURGEON.
  • 00:03:46.230 --> 00:03:47.290
  • I THINK THAT HE WAS JUST SENT
  • 00:03:47.290 --> 00:03:49.290
  • -- I KNOW HE WAS SENT BY GOD,
  • 00:03:49.290 --> 00:03:51.240
  • BUT HE RAN A VERY
  • 00:03:51.240 --> 00:03:53.100
  • SPECIFIC TYPE OF CAT SCAN
  • 00:03:53.100 --> 00:03:54.250
  • WITH CONTRAST.
  • 00:03:54.250 --> 00:03:56.270
  • AND WHEN HE GOT
  • 00:03:56.270 --> 00:03:59.160
  • THE RESULTS BACK
  • 00:03:59.160 --> 00:04:01.000
  • HE WAS IN MY ROOM ALREADY
  • 00:04:01.000 --> 00:04:02.160
  • HAVING PREPPED THE O.R.
  • 00:04:02.160 --> 00:04:03.270
  • TELLING ME I WAS ABOUT
  • 00:04:03.270 --> 00:04:05.120
  • TO HAVE MAJOR SURGERY.
  • 00:04:05.120 --> 00:04:06.210
  • I SAID, "WELL,
  • 00:04:06.210 --> 00:04:08.020
  • IF I'M GOING TO HAVE
  • 00:04:08.020 --> 00:04:09.160
  • THAT MAJOR OF A SURGERY,
  • 00:04:09.160 --> 00:04:10.230
  • I NEED TO GET
  • 00:04:10.230 --> 00:04:12.230
  • A TEAM OF DOCTORS IN HERE.
  • 00:04:12.230 --> 00:04:14.060
  • WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT THIS."
  • 00:04:14.060 --> 00:04:15.070
  • HE SAID, "YOU WON'T MAKE IT."
  • 00:04:15.070 --> 00:04:17.100
  • HE SAID, "WE ARE SURPRISED
  • 00:04:17.100 --> 00:04:19.040
  • YOU HAVE MADE IT THIS FAR."
  • 00:04:19.040 --> 00:04:21.230
  • SO LONG STORY SHORT
  • 00:04:21.230 --> 00:04:23.070
  • WHAT HAPPENED...
  • 00:04:23.070 --> 00:04:24.190
  • James: BY THE WAY,
  • 00:04:24.190 --> 00:04:26.010
  • HAD THE PAIN STOPPED
  • 00:04:26.010 --> 00:04:27.020
  • AND YOU LEFT
  • 00:04:27.020 --> 00:04:28.060
  • YOU MIGHT NOT HAVE MADE IT;
  • 00:04:28.060 --> 00:04:29.080
  • RIGHT?
  • 00:04:29.080 --> 00:04:30.120
  • SO PAIN REALLY BECAME
  • 00:04:30.120 --> 00:04:31.130
  • A FRIEND.
  • 00:04:31.130 --> 00:04:32.180
  • Lysa: IT DID. AND PAIN
  • 00:04:32.180 --> 00:04:33.230
  • WAS THE VERY THING I WAS
  • 00:04:33.230 --> 00:04:35.000
  • BEGGING GOD TO TAKE AWAY.
  • 00:04:35.000 --> 00:04:36.080
  • I WAS BEGGING GOD
  • 00:04:36.080 --> 00:04:37.080
  • TO TAKE AWAY THE PAIN.
  • 00:04:37.080 --> 00:04:38.070
  • I THOUGHT, GOD, IF YOU'LL
  • 00:04:38.070 --> 00:04:39.110
  • JUST TAKE AWAY THE PAIN
  • 00:04:39.110 --> 00:04:40.230
  • THEN I CAN THINK LOGICALLY
  • 00:04:40.230 --> 00:04:42.100
  • AND I CAN INTERACT
  • 00:04:42.100 --> 00:04:43.210
  • WITH THE DOCTORS
  • 00:04:43.210 --> 00:04:44.200
  • AND I WON'T BE SO BOUND
  • 00:04:44.200 --> 00:04:47.180
  • TO STAYING IN THE HOSPITAL.
  • 00:04:47.180 --> 00:04:49.110
  • I COULD GO HOME
  • 00:04:49.110 --> 00:04:51.010
  • AND WE COULD RESEARCH THIS
  • 00:04:51.010 --> 00:04:52.130
  • ON THE INTERNET.
  • 00:04:52.130 --> 00:04:53.220
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:04:53.280 --> 00:04:56.280
  • BUT HAD GOD ANSWERED
  • 00:04:56.280 --> 00:04:58.170
  • THAT PRAYER,
  • 00:04:58.170 --> 00:05:00.020
  • HAD GOD TAKEN AWAY THE PAIN
  • 00:05:00.020 --> 00:05:01.260
  • I WOULD NOT HAVE STAYED
  • 00:05:01.260 --> 00:05:03.130
  • AT THE HOSPITAL.
  • 00:05:03.130 --> 00:05:04.140
  • HAD GOD TAKEN AWAY THE PAIN
  • 00:05:04.140 --> 00:05:05.150
  • I NEVER WOULD HAVE
  • 00:05:05.150 --> 00:05:06.160
  • MADE IT UNTIL FRIDAY
  • 00:05:06.160 --> 00:05:08.030
  • TO CONSULT WITH THAT SURGEON.
  • 00:05:08.030 --> 00:05:10.040
  • HAD GOD TAKEN AWAY THE PAIN
  • 00:05:10.040 --> 00:05:11.080
  • I WOULD HAVE NEVER LET
  • 00:05:11.080 --> 00:05:12.140
  • THE SURGEON CUT ME OPEN.
  • 00:05:12.140 --> 00:05:14.060
  • IF IT WEREN'T FOR THE PAIN
  • 00:05:14.060 --> 00:05:15.120
  • I WOULD NOT HAVE LIVED.
  • 00:05:15.120 --> 00:05:17.100
  • James: WHAT DID THEY FIND OR
  • 00:05:17.100 --> 00:05:18.180
  • CAN YOU GO INTO THAT DETAIL?
  • 00:05:18.180 --> 00:05:19.200
  • SO IT IS A VERY STRANGE THING,
  • 00:05:20.290 --> 00:05:23.020
  • KIND OF UNEXPLAINABLY,
  • 00:05:23.020 --> 00:05:24.250
  • THE RIGHT SIDE OF MY COLON...
  • 00:05:24.250 --> 00:05:26.260
  • LIKE THIS.
  • 00:05:28.210 --> 00:05:30.000
  • IT'S YOUR LARGE INTESTINE,
  • 00:05:30.000 --> 00:05:31.160
  • NOT THE SMALL INTESTINE
  • 00:05:31.160 --> 00:05:32.220
  • BUT THE LARGE ONE
  • 00:05:32.220 --> 00:05:33.250
  • SO IT SITS LIKE A U
  • 00:05:33.250 --> 00:05:35.230
  • AND IT KIND OF FRAMES
  • 00:05:35.230 --> 00:05:37.050
  • THE SMALL INTESTINE.
  • 00:05:37.050 --> 00:05:38.120
  • SO THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE COLON
  • 00:05:38.120 --> 00:05:40.200
  • RIPPED AWAY
  • 00:05:40.200 --> 00:05:42.140
  • FROM THE ABDOMINAL WALL,
  • 00:05:42.140 --> 00:05:43.220
  • FLIPPED OVER TO THE LEFT SIDE,
  • 00:05:43.220 --> 00:05:45.280
  • WRAPPED AROUND THE LEFT SIDE,
  • 00:05:45.280 --> 00:05:48.110
  • CUT OFF THE BLOOD FLOW
  • 00:05:48.110 --> 00:05:50.120
  • AND STARTED EXPANDING.
  • 00:05:50.270 --> 00:05:53.270
  • AND THAT'S WHAT HAPPENS
  • 00:05:53.270 --> 00:05:55.160
  • IF SOMETHING GETS
  • 00:05:55.160 --> 00:05:56.190
  • THE BLOOD FLOW CUT OFF
  • 00:05:56.190 --> 00:05:57.210
  • IT FILLS WITH FLUID
  • 00:05:57.210 --> 00:05:58.270
  • AND AIR AND EVERYTHING.
  • 00:05:58.270 --> 00:05:59.280
  • SO IT STARTED EXPANDING
  • 00:05:59.280 --> 00:06:01.040
  • AND BY MONDAY
  • 00:06:01.040 --> 00:06:03.260
  • I LOOKED LIKE I LOOK NOW
  • 00:06:03.260 --> 00:06:04.280
  • BUT BY FRIDAY
  • 00:06:04.280 --> 00:06:06.040
  • I LOOKED LIKE I WAS ABOUT
  • 00:06:06.040 --> 00:06:07.170
  • EIGHT MONTHS PREGNANT.
  • 00:06:07.170 --> 00:06:10.070
  • WHEN THE SURGEON WENT IN
  • 00:06:10.070 --> 00:06:12.150
  • THE MASS THAT HE REMOVED
  • 00:06:12.170 --> 00:06:15.170
  • WAS LITERALLY THIS BIG.
  • 00:06:15.170 --> 00:06:17.200
  • IT WAS AMAZING.
  • 00:06:17.200 --> 00:06:19.080
  • IT HAD DISPLACED
  • 00:06:19.080 --> 00:06:21.190
  • ALL OF MY ORGANS.
  • 00:06:21.190 --> 00:06:23.140
  • SO HE HAD TO NOT ONLY REMOVE
  • 00:06:23.140 --> 00:06:26.000
  • MOST OF ALL OF THE COLON
  • 00:06:26.000 --> 00:06:27.190
  • ON THIS SIDE
  • 00:06:27.190 --> 00:06:29.160
  • AND SO IN THE MIDDLE
  • 00:06:29.160 --> 00:06:31.150
  • BUT IT HAD DISPLACED SO MUCH
  • 00:06:31.150 --> 00:06:33.180
  • HE HAD TO LITERALLY
  • 00:06:33.180 --> 00:06:34.270
  • STAPLE ME BACK IN PLACE.
  • 00:06:34.270 --> 00:06:37.220
  • SO IT WAS PRETTY MAJOR.
  • 00:06:37.220 --> 00:06:39.050
  • James: IT IS A MIRACLE
  • 00:06:39.050 --> 00:06:40.150
  • YOU'RE SITTING HERE.
  • 00:06:40.150 --> 00:06:41.200
  • TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
  • 00:06:41.200 --> 00:06:42.270
  • [Applause]
  • 00:06:44.150 --> 00:06:47.150
  • THANK YOU, LORD.
  • 00:06:48.110 --> 00:06:51.110
  • I WANT YOU TO,
  • 00:06:51.110 --> 00:06:52.160
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO TAKE
  • 00:06:52.160 --> 00:06:53.220
  • BUT WE'RE GOING TO DO
  • 00:06:54.280 --> 00:06:56.030
  • ANOTHER PROGRAM, WE'RE
  • 00:06:56.030 --> 00:06:57.080
  • GOING TO TALK ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:06:57.080 --> 00:06:58.130
  • I WANT YOU TO JUST
  • 00:06:58.130 --> 00:06:59.190
  • TOWARD WHERE YOU WANT US TO GO
  • 00:07:01.050 --> 00:07:03.060
  • AND THE THINGS
  • 00:07:03.060 --> 00:07:04.100
  • YOU WANT US TO KNOW
  • 00:07:04.100 --> 00:07:05.170
  • THAT GOD HAS PUT ON YOUR HEART
  • 00:07:05.170 --> 00:07:06.270
  • TO SHARE BECAUSE YOU WERE
  • 00:07:06.270 --> 00:07:08.090
  • ALREADY ARE IN THE PROCESS OF
  • 00:07:08.090 --> 00:07:10.080
  • COMPLETING AND GETTING READY
  • 00:07:10.080 --> 00:07:11.210
  • FOR THIS TO BE LAUNCHED.
  • 00:07:11.210 --> 00:07:13.020
  • WE WERE GOING
  • 00:07:13.020 --> 00:07:14.060
  • TO TALK ABOUT IT.
  • 00:07:14.060 --> 00:07:15.100
  • AND THE BOOK IS OUT NOW.
  • 00:07:15.100 --> 00:07:16.140
  • SO JUST TELL US
  • 00:07:16.140 --> 00:07:17.180
  • HOW WE TRANSITION
  • 00:07:17.180 --> 00:07:18.220
  • FROM WHERE YOU WERE, WHERE
  • 00:07:18.220 --> 00:07:19.260
  • YOU ARE, AND WHAT YOU REALLY
  • 00:07:19.260 --> 00:07:21.010
  • BELIEVE GOD WANTS US TO HEAR
  • 00:07:21.010 --> 00:07:22.050
  • AND PEOPLE WATCHING
  • 00:07:22.050 --> 00:07:23.140
  • ALL OVER THE WORLD
  • 00:07:23.140 --> 00:07:24.220
  • TO HEAR IN THEIR HOMES
  • 00:07:24.220 --> 00:07:25.240
  • OR WHEREVER THEY ARE.
  • 00:07:25.240 --> 00:07:26.240
  • Lysa: WELL,
  • 00:07:26.240 --> 00:07:27.280
  • I'LL SAY WITH
  • 00:07:27.280 --> 00:07:29.050
  • THE MESSAGE OF UNINVITED ,
  • 00:07:29.050 --> 00:07:30.150
  • NEVER HAS WRITING A BOOK
  • 00:07:30.150 --> 00:07:33.070
  • COST ME MORE THAN
  • 00:07:33.070 --> 00:07:35.040
  • THE WRITING OF THIS MESSAGE.
  • 00:07:35.040 --> 00:07:36.260
  • I HAD TWO PASTORS CALL ME
  • 00:07:36.260 --> 00:07:38.210
  • AND SAY, "THE DEVIL HIMSELF
  • 00:07:38.210 --> 00:07:40.230
  • IS TRYING TO KILL YOU."
  • 00:07:40.230 --> 00:07:43.020
  • I DO BELIEVE THAT.
  • 00:07:43.020 --> 00:07:44.180
  • I THINK IT'S BECAUSE
  • 00:07:44.180 --> 00:07:47.040
  • THE DEVIL IS VICIOUS BUT
  • 00:07:47.110 --> 00:07:50.110
  • HE KNOWS HE'S NOT VICTORIOUS.
  • 00:07:50.110 --> 00:07:53.060
  • HE IS ON AN ALL-OUT ASSAULT
  • 00:07:53.060 --> 00:07:55.130
  • AGAINST EVERYTHING SACRED
  • 00:07:55.130 --> 00:07:57.080
  • AND PURE AND LOVING
  • 00:07:57.080 --> 00:07:59.080
  • AND KIND AND GOOD.
  • 00:07:59.080 --> 00:08:01.020
  • HE IS ON AN ALL-OUT ASSAULT.
  • 00:08:01.020 --> 00:08:03.060
  • SO WHEN I STARTED
  • 00:08:03.060 --> 00:08:04.120
  • WRITING UNINVITED
  • 00:08:04.120 --> 00:08:06.000
  • I THOUGHT I WAS JUST SIMPLY
  • 00:08:06.000 --> 00:08:08.110
  • GOING TO WRITE A BOOK
  • 00:08:08.110 --> 00:08:10.200
  • ABOUT REJECTION; TACKLE
  • 00:08:10.200 --> 00:08:11.280
  • THIS TOPIC OF REJECTION.
  • 00:08:11.280 --> 00:08:13.220
  • BUT THE FLIP SIDE OF REJECTION
  • 00:08:13.220 --> 00:08:16.150
  • IS DEEP ACCEPTANCE AND LOVE.
  • 00:08:16.150 --> 00:08:18.200
  • AND THE DEEP ACCEPTANCE
  • 00:08:18.200 --> 00:08:20.120
  • AND LOVE OF GOD IS THE
  • 00:08:20.120 --> 00:08:21.180
  • VERY THING THAT THE ENEMY
  • 00:08:21.180 --> 00:08:22.210
  • NEVER WANTS US TO GET.
  • 00:08:22.210 --> 00:08:24.180
  • IF HE CAN KEEP US FROM THAT
  • 00:08:24.180 --> 00:08:26.090
  • THEN HE CAN
  • 00:08:26.090 --> 00:08:27.110
  • RENDER US INEFFECTIVE
  • 00:08:27.110 --> 00:08:28.170
  • WITH THE POWER OF CHRIST.
  • 00:08:28.170 --> 00:08:29.270
  • WE WON'T ATTACH
  • 00:08:29.270 --> 00:08:31.120
  • THE POWER OF CHRIST
  • 00:08:31.120 --> 00:08:32.210
  • TO OUR EVERYDAY LIFE.
  • 00:08:32.210 --> 00:08:33.240
  • WE'LL BE RENDERED INEFFECTIVE.
  • 00:08:33.240 --> 00:08:34.280
  • WE'LL STILL BE SAVED.
  • 00:08:34.280 --> 00:08:36.190
  • WE'LL STILL BE GOING
  • 00:08:36.190 --> 00:08:38.060
  • WE'LL STILL BE QUOTING VERSES
  • 00:08:39.100 --> 00:08:41.220
  • AND ALL OF THAT
  • 00:08:41.220 --> 00:08:43.140
  • BUT IF WE DO NOT UNDERSTAND
  • 00:08:43.140 --> 00:08:44.210
  • AND ACCEPTANCE
  • 00:08:46.260 --> 00:08:48.000
  • THEN WE'LL RUN AROUND
  • 00:08:48.000 --> 00:08:49.060
  • TRYING TO PERFORM AND TRY
  • 00:08:49.060 --> 00:08:50.140
  • TO BE GOOD ENOUGH FOR GOD.
  • 00:08:50.140 --> 00:08:52.080
  • ALL THE WHILE GOD IS INTO
  • 00:08:52.080 --> 00:08:54.000
  • THE SLOWER RHYTHMS OF LIFE
  • 00:08:54.000 --> 00:08:55.180
  • LIKE ABIDING, RESTING,
  • 00:08:55.180 --> 00:08:58.080
  • JUST BEING WITH HIM.
  • 00:08:58.080 --> 00:09:00.020
  • AND GOD'S LOVE
  • 00:09:00.020 --> 00:09:01.080
  • IS NOT BASED ON US,
  • 00:09:01.080 --> 00:09:03.100
  • IT IS SIMPLY PLACED ON US
  • 00:09:03.100 --> 00:09:05.170
  • AND IT IS THE PLACE
  • 00:09:05.170 --> 00:09:07.020
  • FROM WHICH WE SHOULD LIVE.
  • 00:09:07.020 --> 00:09:08.240
  • James: SAY THAT AGAIN:
  • 00:09:08.240 --> 00:09:10.070
  • IT'S NOT BASED ON US
  • 00:09:10.070 --> 00:09:11.070
  • IT IS PLACED ON US.
  • 00:09:11.070 --> 00:09:12.070
  • Lysa: THAT'S RIGHT!
  • 00:09:12.070 --> 00:09:13.060
  • AND IT IS THE PLACE
  • 00:09:13.060 --> 00:09:14.070
  • FROM WHICH WE SHOULD LIVE.
  • 00:09:14.070 --> 00:09:15.090
  • I'M TELLING YOU,
  • 00:09:15.090 --> 00:09:16.110
  • IF WE WOKE UP EVERY DAY
  • 00:09:16.110 --> 00:09:17.130
  • FULLY AWARE OF GOD'S
  • 00:09:17.220 --> 00:09:20.220
  • INCREDIBLE LOVE FOR US,
  • 00:09:20.220 --> 00:09:23.020
  • HOW DIFFERENT WOULD WE BE?
  • 00:09:23.020 --> 00:09:25.090
  • Betty: DON'T YOU FEEL LIKE
  • 00:09:25.090 --> 00:09:26.130
  • REJECTION IN THEIR LIVES?
  • 00:09:27.170 --> 00:09:29.140
  • I KNOW I DID GROWING UP
  • 00:09:29.140 --> 00:09:32.030
  • THAT I WAS IMPORTANT ENOUGH
  • 00:09:34.230 --> 00:09:35.270
  • TO ANYBODY.
  • 00:09:35.270 --> 00:09:37.050
  • THAT'S A PLOY OF THE ENEMY
  • 00:09:37.050 --> 00:09:40.000
  • TO KEEP YOU DOWN.
  • 00:09:40.000 --> 00:09:41.150
  • Lysa: IT IS AN ABSOLUTE PLOY
  • 00:09:41.150 --> 00:09:42.190
  • OF THE ENEMY
  • 00:09:42.190 --> 00:09:43.210
  • BECAUSE I CAN TELL YOU, BETTY,
  • 00:09:43.210 --> 00:09:44.240
  • THAT BEFORE YOU WERE ANYTHING
  • 00:09:44.240 --> 00:09:46.270
  • GOD HAD A THOUGHT OF BETTY
  • 00:09:46.270 --> 00:09:48.210
  • IN HIS MIND.
  • 00:09:48.210 --> 00:09:50.050
  • AND GOD SO VERY MUCH LOVED
  • 00:09:50.050 --> 00:09:52.070
  • EVEN THE THOUGHT OF YOU
  • 00:09:52.070 --> 00:09:54.080
  • THAT HIS HEART EXPLODED
  • 00:09:54.080 --> 00:09:56.180
  • WITH JOY AND PURPOSE
  • 00:09:56.180 --> 00:09:58.110
  • AND PLANS FOR YOU.
  • 00:09:58.110 --> 00:09:59.280
  • YOU WEREN'T EVEN A BABY YET
  • 00:10:00.040 --> 00:10:03.040
  • AND JUST THE VERY THOUGHT
  • 00:10:03.040 --> 00:10:04.270
  • OF YOU, GOD JUST FELL
  • 00:10:04.270 --> 00:10:07.140
  • COMPLETELY IN LOVE WITH YOU,
  • 00:10:07.140 --> 00:10:09.060
  • AND THAT LOVE COMPELLED HIM
  • 00:10:09.060 --> 00:10:11.100
  • TO WRITE A STORY CALLED BETTY
  • 00:10:11.100 --> 00:10:14.060
  • AND IT IS AMAZING
  • 00:10:14.060 --> 00:10:15.290
  • AND BEAUTIFUL AND WORTHY.
  • 00:10:15.290 --> 00:10:18.000
  • THAT'S THE VERY THING
  • 00:10:18.000 --> 00:10:19.270
  • THAT SATAN WANTS
  • 00:10:19.270 --> 00:10:21.050
  • TO KEEP US FROM,
  • 00:10:21.050 --> 00:10:22.060
  • EACH ONE OF US.
  • 00:10:22.060 --> 00:10:23.080
  • James: HE WANTS THAT
  • 00:10:23.080 --> 00:10:24.130
  • FOR ME TOO.
  • 00:10:24.130 --> 00:10:25.170
  • YOU LOOK AT OLD JAMES
  • 00:10:25.170 --> 00:10:26.170
  • OVER HERE.
  • 00:10:26.170 --> 00:10:27.190
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:10:27.190 --> 00:10:29.270
  • I WASN'T EVEN A THOUGHT.
  • 00:10:29.270 --> 00:10:31.080
  • MY MOTHER WAS RAPED.
  • 00:10:31.080 --> 00:10:32.070
  • SHE DIDN'T PLAN
  • 00:10:32.070 --> 00:10:33.090
  • TO HAVE A CHILD.
  • 00:10:33.090 --> 00:10:34.100
  • SHE'D NEVER HAD A CHILD.
  • 00:10:34.100 --> 00:10:35.120
  • SHE GETS RAPED WHEN SHE IS 40
  • 00:10:35.120 --> 00:10:36.170
  • AND CONCEIVES ME. OH, BOY!
  • 00:10:36.170 --> 00:10:38.270
  • SHE TRIED TO HAVE ME ABORTED
  • 00:10:38.270 --> 00:10:40.060
  • AND THE DOCTOR WOULDN'T DO IT.
  • 00:10:40.060 --> 00:10:41.080
  • THE FACT IS GOD WAS LOVING
  • 00:10:41.080 --> 00:10:43.120
  • THIS LITTLE
  • 00:10:43.120 --> 00:10:44.140
  • UNPLANNED POOR BOY.
  • 00:10:44.140 --> 00:10:45.230
  • HE SAW SOMETHING IN ME
  • 00:10:45.230 --> 00:10:48.230
  • AND REALLY AND TRULY,
  • 00:10:48.230 --> 00:10:49.260
  • I LOOK AT MYSELF
  • 00:10:49.260 --> 00:10:50.290
  • THROUGH MY WHOLE LIFE AND
  • 00:10:50.290 --> 00:10:52.020
  • I CAN FIND SO MANY REASONS,
  • 00:10:52.020 --> 00:10:53.050
  • GOD... WHEN HE CALLED ME
  • 00:10:53.050 --> 00:10:54.080
  • TO PREACH I SAID, "YOU PICKED
  • 00:10:54.080 --> 00:10:55.110
  • THE BOTTOM OF THE BARREL.
  • 00:10:55.110 --> 00:10:56.140
  • WHY DID YOU CALL ME FOR?
  • 00:10:56.140 --> 00:10:57.170
  • I CAN THINK OF A LOT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:10:57.170 --> 00:10:58.210
  • YOU SHOULD HAVE CALLED."
  • 00:10:58.210 --> 00:10:59.230
  • BUT HE LOVES ME!
  • 00:10:59.230 --> 00:11:00.280
  • THE THING ABOUT IT IS
  • 00:11:00.280 --> 00:11:01.280
  • HE IS CRAZY ABOUT ME.
  • 00:11:01.280 --> 00:11:02.280
  • SOMETIMES I DON'T LIKE MYSELF.
  • 00:11:02.280 --> 00:11:03.290
  • HE'S CRAZY ABOUT ME.
  • 00:11:03.290 --> 00:11:05.020
  • Lysa: I BELIEVE THAT NOT ONLY
  • 00:11:05.020 --> 00:11:06.060
  • IS HE CRAZY ABOUT YOU
  • 00:11:06.060 --> 00:11:07.110
  • BUT HE HANDPICKED YOU.
  • 00:11:07.110 --> 00:11:08.290
  • LIKE WHEN YOU WERE OVERLOOKED
  • 00:11:08.290 --> 00:11:10.110
  • BY EVERYONE ELSE --
  • 00:11:10.110 --> 00:11:11.200
  • James: AND BOY WAS I EVER!
  • 00:11:11.200 --> 00:11:12.210
  • Lysa: YOU WERE HANDPICKED
  • 00:11:12.210 --> 00:11:13.260
  • BY GOD.
  • 00:11:13.260 --> 00:11:14.250
  • AND I TRULY THINK
  • 00:11:14.250 --> 00:11:16.040
  • THAT GOD LOVES...
  • 00:11:16.040 --> 00:11:17.090
  • IN GOD'S ECONOMY
  • 00:11:17.090 --> 00:11:18.230
  • THINGS ARE ALWAYS OPPOSITE:
  • 00:11:18.230 --> 00:11:20.110
  • BIG IS SMALL,
  • 00:11:20.110 --> 00:11:21.110
  • SMALL IS BIG; RIGHT?
  • 00:11:21.110 --> 00:11:22.260
  • AND THAT'S JUST THE WAY
  • 00:11:22.260 --> 00:11:24.020
  • GOD WORKS.
  • 00:11:24.020 --> 00:11:25.040
  • SO OF COURSE,
  • 00:11:25.040 --> 00:11:26.060
  • HE WOULD PICK YOU,
  • 00:11:26.060 --> 00:11:27.240
  • OVERLOOKED BY EVERYONE ELSE.
  • 00:11:27.240 --> 00:11:29.140
  • James: THIS IS WHAT I HEARD
  • 00:11:29.140 --> 00:11:30.180
  • THE NIGHT GOD CALLED ME
  • 00:11:30.180 --> 00:11:31.190
  • TO GO FORWARD.
  • 00:11:31.190 --> 00:11:32.200
  • I WAS TOO SHY TO GO FORWARD.
  • 00:11:32.200 --> 00:11:33.190
  • I'M HOLDING ON TO THE CHAIR
  • 00:11:33.190 --> 00:11:34.240
  • IN FRONT OF ME
  • 00:11:34.240 --> 00:11:35.270
  • AND THE PASTOR'S WIFE
  • 00:11:35.270 --> 00:11:36.270
  • COMES TO ME WEEPING
  • 00:11:36.270 --> 00:11:37.270
  • AND SAYS, "DON'T YOU WANT
  • 00:11:37.270 --> 00:11:38.280
  • TO GO TO JESUS?"
  • 00:11:38.280 --> 00:11:40.000
  • I SAID, "YES, BUT I'M AFRAID."
  • 00:11:40.000 --> 00:11:41.020
  • AND SHE SAID,
  • 00:11:41.020 --> 00:11:42.030
  • "I'LL GO WITH YOU."
  • 00:11:42.030 --> 00:11:43.090
  • BUT HERE'S WHAT I WAS
  • 00:11:43.090 --> 00:11:44.140
  • STANDING THERE HEARING,
  • 00:11:44.140 --> 00:11:45.190
  • I REMEMBERED ALL THE TIMES...
  • 00:11:45.190 --> 00:11:46.260
  • WE MOVED 17 TIMES IN 10 YEARS
  • 00:11:46.260 --> 00:11:49.200
  • SO NOBODY KNEW ME.
  • 00:11:49.200 --> 00:11:51.050
  • AND WHEN THEY PICKED TEAMS
  • 00:11:51.050 --> 00:11:52.080
  • TO PLAY I NEVER GOT PICKED.
  • 00:11:52.080 --> 00:11:53.090
  • I WOULD BE THE KID
  • 00:11:53.090 --> 00:11:54.120
  • THAT WOULD JUST WALK HOME
  • 00:11:54.120 --> 00:11:55.120
  • WHILE THEY PLAYED.
  • 00:11:55.120 --> 00:11:56.150
  • AND I WOULD CRY.
  • 00:11:56.150 --> 00:11:58.080
  • AND THE NIGHT
  • 00:11:58.080 --> 00:11:59.210
  • GOD'S DEALING WITH ME
  • 00:11:59.210 --> 00:12:01.000
  • HE SAID, "I PICK YOU."
  • 00:12:01.000 --> 00:12:03.220
  • THE NIGHT HE CALLED ME
  • 00:12:03.220 --> 00:12:05.100
  • "I CALL YOU. I PICK YOU."
  • 00:12:06.140 --> 00:12:08.030
  • SO MAN, THIS IS IMPORTANT.
  • 00:12:08.030 --> 00:12:09.170
  • I WISH EVERYBODY COULD HEAR
  • 00:12:09.170 --> 00:12:10.180
  • WHAT YOU WERE JUST SAYING --
  • 00:12:10.180 --> 00:12:11.260
  • HE CHOOSES YOU.
  • 00:12:14.070 --> 00:12:16.130
  • HE'S PICKED YOU.
  • 00:12:16.130 --> 00:12:17.160
  • IF PEOPLE COULD GET THAT,
  • 00:12:17.160 --> 00:12:19.140
  • LYSA, I MEAN IT IS JUST
  • 00:12:19.140 --> 00:12:20.190
  • SIMPLY THE TRUTH.
  • 00:12:20.190 --> 00:12:21.200
  • Lysa: YOU KNOW EVERY SINGLE
  • 00:12:21.200 --> 00:12:22.250
  • ONE OF THOSE NIGHTS
  • 00:12:22.250 --> 00:12:23.270
  • WHERE YOU WALKED HOME CRYING
  • 00:12:23.270 --> 00:12:25.040
  • BECAUSE YOU WEREN'T PICKED
  • 00:12:25.040 --> 00:12:26.250
  • FOR THE SPORTS TEAM,
  • 00:12:26.250 --> 00:12:28.070
  • YOU KNOW IN THOSE MOMENTS
  • 00:12:28.070 --> 00:12:29.260
  • I CAN SO CLEARLY PICTURE IT
  • 00:12:29.260 --> 00:12:32.170
  • BECAUSE I KNOW
  • 00:12:32.170 --> 00:12:33.250
  • WHAT THAT FEELS LIKE.
  • 00:12:33.250 --> 00:12:34.270
  • EVERY ONE OF US KNOWS
  • 00:12:34.270 --> 00:12:36.010
  • WHAT THAT FEELS LIKE.
  • 00:12:36.010 --> 00:12:37.040
  • AND THAT WAS ONE OF
  • 00:12:37.040 --> 00:12:38.060
  • GOD'S GREATEST THINGS THAT
  • 00:12:38.060 --> 00:12:40.010
  • HE TOOK AND SAID, "REALLY?
  • 00:12:40.010 --> 00:12:41.140
  • SATAN MEANT THAT FOR EVIL
  • 00:12:41.140 --> 00:12:43.160
  • BUT OH, JAMES, I'M GOING
  • 00:12:43.160 --> 00:12:44.260
  • TO USE IT FOR SUCH GOOD!"
  • 00:12:44.260 --> 00:12:46.170
  • BECAUSE YOU WERE
  • 00:12:46.170 --> 00:12:47.210
  • NOT SET ASIDE,
  • 00:12:47.210 --> 00:12:48.250
  • YOU ARE SET APART
  • 00:12:48.250 --> 00:12:49.290
  • FOR A HIGH AND HOLY CALLING.
  • 00:12:49.290 --> 00:12:51.040
  • AND THE VAST MAJORITY
  • 00:12:51.040 --> 00:12:52.120
  • OF YOUR AUDIENCE,
  • 00:12:52.120 --> 00:12:53.120
  • THEY MAY NEVER KNOW
  • 00:12:53.120 --> 00:12:54.160
  • PICKED BY A SPORTS TEAM
  • 00:12:55.220 --> 00:12:56.230
  • BUT THEY WILL KNOW
  • 00:12:56.230 --> 00:12:57.250
  • WHAT IT FEELS LIKE
  • 00:12:57.250 --> 00:12:58.270
  • TO WALK HOME CRYING
  • 00:12:58.270 --> 00:12:59.290
  • FEELING REJECTED.
  • 00:12:59.290 --> 00:13:01.030
  • AND I'M WEAVING THIS MESSAGE
  • 00:13:02.230 --> 00:13:04.200
  • IN YOU THAT YOU WILL PREACH
  • 00:13:04.200 --> 00:13:06.170
  • AND TEACH AND CHANGE THE WORLD
  • 00:13:06.170 --> 00:13:08.090
  • BECAUSE OF THE TENDERNESS --
  • 00:13:08.090 --> 00:13:09.280
  • NOT BECAUSE OF THE VICTORIES
  • 00:13:09.280 --> 00:13:11.020
  • AND SUCCESSES OF YOUR LIFE --
  • 00:13:11.020 --> 00:13:12.090
  • BUT BECAUSE OF THE TENDERNESS
  • 00:13:12.090 --> 00:13:13.270
  • OF WHAT JUST HAPPENED TO YOU.
  • 00:13:13.270 --> 00:13:15.090
  • BECAUSE EVERYBODY RELATES
  • 00:13:15.090 --> 00:13:16.160
  • TO OUR FAILURES,
  • 00:13:16.160 --> 00:13:17.190
  • VERY FEW PEOPLE RELATE
  • 00:13:17.190 --> 00:13:18.200
  • TO OUR SUCCESSES.
  • 00:13:18.200 --> 00:13:19.250
  • James: THANK YOU, LYSA.
  • 00:13:19.250 --> 00:13:20.280
  • I TAKE THAT ON
  • 00:13:20.280 --> 00:13:22.020
  • AS A MESSAGE TO ME
  • 00:13:22.020 --> 00:13:23.060
  • BUT A MESSAGE TO ALL OF YOU.
  • 00:13:23.060 --> 00:13:24.110
  • DO YOU APPRECIATE
  • 00:13:24.110 --> 00:13:25.150
  • WHAT SHE SAID?
  • 00:13:25.150 --> 00:13:26.190
  • DO YOU UNDERSTAND
  • 00:13:26.190 --> 00:13:27.230
  • THE IMPORTANCE OF IT?
  • 00:13:27.230 --> 00:13:28.270
  • [Applause]
  • 00:13:28.270 --> 00:13:31.010
  • DID YOU EVER FEEL
  • 00:13:31.020 --> 00:13:34.020
  • IN SOME WAY REJECTED,
  • 00:13:34.020 --> 00:13:35.060
  • HAVE SOME KIND OF A MOMENT
  • 00:13:35.060 --> 00:13:37.140
  • WHERE THAT REALLY HIT YOU?
  • 00:13:37.140 --> 00:13:40.040
  • Lysa: WELL,
  • 00:13:40.040 --> 00:13:41.120
  • I REMEMBER AS A SMALL CHILD
  • 00:13:41.120 --> 00:13:42.200
  • ONE OF MY VERY EARLIEST
  • 00:13:42.200 --> 00:13:44.110
  • MEMORIES WAS OF MY DAD,
  • 00:13:45.130 --> 00:13:48.130
  • MY BIOLOGICAL FATHER.
  • 00:13:48.130 --> 00:13:50.080
  • I SO DESPERATELY WANTED HIM
  • 00:13:50.080 --> 00:13:52.140
  • TO LOVE ME,
  • 00:13:52.140 --> 00:13:53.210
  • WANTED HIM TO NOTICE ME,
  • 00:13:53.210 --> 00:13:54.260
  • WANTED HIM TO AFFIRM ME.
  • 00:13:54.260 --> 00:13:57.220
  • I THINK DEEP DOWN IN OUR HEART
  • 00:13:57.220 --> 00:13:59.170
  • WE ARE BORN
  • 00:13:59.170 --> 00:14:01.090
  • WITH THIS DESPERATE NEED
  • 00:14:01.090 --> 00:14:02.130
  • FOR BELONGING, LOVE,
  • 00:14:02.130 --> 00:14:03.180
  • AND ACCEPTANCE, AFFIRMATION.
  • 00:14:03.180 --> 00:14:05.240
  • SO THAT'S WHAT I WANTED
  • 00:14:05.240 --> 00:14:06.270
  • FROM MY DAD.
  • 00:14:06.270 --> 00:14:08.000
  • BUT MY DAD HAD HIS OWN SET
  • 00:14:08.000 --> 00:14:10.220
  • OF HURTS THAT HE JUST COULDN'T
  • 00:14:10.260 --> 00:14:13.260
  • QUITE GET OVER.
  • 00:14:13.260 --> 00:14:15.150
  • AND BECAUSE OF THAT
  • 00:14:15.150 --> 00:14:16.190
  • THE SAYING IS:
  • 00:14:16.190 --> 00:14:17.200
  • "HURT PEOPLE HURT PEOPLE."
  • 00:14:17.200 --> 00:14:19.180
  • HE NEVER COULD GIVE ME
  • 00:14:19.180 --> 00:14:21.110
  • THOSE WORDS OF AFFIRMATION
  • 00:14:21.110 --> 00:14:22.290
  • THAT I WAS SO DESPERATE FOR.
  • 00:14:22.290 --> 00:14:24.100
  • SO I REMEMBER BEING
  • 00:14:24.100 --> 00:14:25.120
  • A LITTLE GIRL EIGHT YEARS OLD
  • 00:14:25.120 --> 00:14:27.170
  • WATCHING MY DADDY DRIVE AWAY
  • 00:14:27.170 --> 00:14:29.240
  • AND FEELING AS IF
  • 00:14:29.240 --> 00:14:32.180
  • I HAD JUST LOST MY IDENTITY.
  • 00:14:32.190 --> 00:14:35.190
  • James: DID HE LEAVE
  • 00:14:35.190 --> 00:14:37.050
  • THE FAMILY?
  • 00:14:37.050 --> 00:14:38.090
  • Lysa: HE LEFT THE FAMILY.
  • 00:14:38.090 --> 00:14:39.110
  • AT FIRST HE JUST LEFT US
  • 00:14:39.110 --> 00:14:40.130
  • PHYSICALLY BUT HE HAD ALREADY
  • 00:14:40.130 --> 00:14:42.290
  • BEEN ABSENT EMOTIONALLY
  • 00:14:42.290 --> 00:14:44.040
  • FOR SO LONG.
  • 00:14:44.040 --> 00:14:45.120
  • SO I LOST MY IDENTITY.
  • 00:14:45.120 --> 00:14:47.180
  • I WAS DESPERATE
  • 00:14:47.180 --> 00:14:48.200
  • TO BE HIS DAUGHTER.
  • 00:14:48.200 --> 00:14:49.270
  • I JUST FELT LIKE IF
  • 00:14:49.270 --> 00:14:51.220
  • HE WOULD JUST ACKNOWLEDGE ME
  • 00:14:51.220 --> 00:14:53.080
  • AND I COULD JUST
  • 00:14:53.080 --> 00:14:54.160
  • BE HIS DAUGHTER
  • 00:14:54.160 --> 00:14:55.270
  • THEN EVERYTHING WOULD
  • 00:14:55.270 --> 00:14:57.030
  • FALL INTO PLACE FOR ME.
  • 00:14:57.030 --> 00:14:58.080
  • BUT I LOST MY IDENTITY
  • 00:14:58.080 --> 00:14:59.120
  • AND I LOST THAT SENSE
  • 00:14:59.120 --> 00:15:01.060
  • OF ACCEPTANCE
  • 00:15:01.060 --> 00:15:02.200
  • ALL IN ONE FELL SWOOP.
  • 00:15:02.200 --> 00:15:03.240
  • IT WAS A DEEP REJECTION.
  • 00:15:03.240 --> 00:15:05.270
  • IT WAS A DEEP PAIN.
  • 00:15:05.270 --> 00:15:07.030
  • James: DID IT CARRY ON FOR
  • 00:15:07.030 --> 00:15:09.060
  • YEARS UNTIL SOME POINT THAT
  • 00:15:09.060 --> 00:15:11.150
  • IT BEGAN TO BREAK THROUGH?
  • 00:15:11.150 --> 00:15:12.180
  • OR DID IT JUST WAIT UNTIL
  • 00:15:12.180 --> 00:15:13.210
  • YOU STARTED WRITING THIS?
  • 00:15:13.210 --> 00:15:14.240
  • Lysa: WELL, WHEN
  • 00:15:14.240 --> 00:15:16.140
  • I STARTED WRITING UNINVITED
  • 00:15:16.140 --> 00:15:17.230
  • I THOUGHT, YEAH, GOD'S REALLY
  • 00:15:17.230 --> 00:15:19.010
  • DEALT WITH ME ON THAT.
  • 00:15:19.010 --> 00:15:20.280
  • I THINK I'M GOOD.
  • 00:15:20.280 --> 00:15:22.140
  • LIKE I THINK THE LORD HAS
  • 00:15:22.140 --> 00:15:23.260
  • REALLY TAUGHT ME EVERYTHING
  • 00:15:23.260 --> 00:15:25.220
  • I NEED TO KNOW
  • 00:15:25.220 --> 00:15:26.290
  • ABOUT REJECTION.
  • 00:15:26.290 --> 00:15:29.160
  • OVER AND OVER AND OVER
  • 00:15:29.160 --> 00:15:31.020
  • I FOUND MYSELF TRIPPING OVER
  • 00:15:31.050 --> 00:15:34.050
  • CERTAIN SOURCES OF PAIN
  • 00:15:34.050 --> 00:15:36.050
  • IN MY LIFE WHERE IT WOULD
  • 00:15:36.060 --> 00:15:39.060
  • HAUNT ME ALL OVER AGAIN.
  • 00:15:39.060 --> 00:15:40.270
  • EVEN IN THE WRITING
  • 00:15:40.270 --> 00:15:42.210
  • OF UNINVITED , TOWARD THE END
  • 00:15:42.210 --> 00:15:45.170
  • OF THE WRITING PROCESS
  • 00:15:45.170 --> 00:15:46.240
  • YOU GO INTO EDITS.
  • 00:15:46.240 --> 00:15:48.190
  • SO TYPICALLY A BOOK EDIT
  • 00:15:48.190 --> 00:15:50.190
  • IS ABOUT 200 EDITS THAT I GET.
  • 00:15:50.190 --> 00:15:52.170
  • WELL, WHEN I GOT THE EDITS
  • 00:15:52.170 --> 00:15:53.270
  • BACK FROM UNINVITED
  • 00:15:53.270 --> 00:15:55.040
  • THERE WERE 3.000 -- 3.000!
  • 00:15:55.040 --> 00:15:57.260
  • James: WAY TO GO!
  • 00:15:57.260 --> 00:16:00.200
  • Lysa: SO I WAS LIKE GREAT!
  • 00:16:00.200 --> 00:16:01.260
  • I'VE WRITTEN A BOOK
  • 00:16:01.260 --> 00:16:03.000
  • ON REJECTION AND NOW
  • 00:16:03.000 --> 00:16:04.010
  • MY EDITOR HAS REJECTED ME.
  • 00:16:04.010 --> 00:16:05.040
  • [Laughter]
  • 00:16:05.040 --> 00:16:06.080
  • James: NEARLY EVERY WORD.
  • 00:16:06.080 --> 00:16:07.130
  • Lysa: SO WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT
  • 00:16:07.130 --> 00:16:09.130
  • THERE'S 3.000 EDITS,
  • 00:16:09.130 --> 00:16:11.100
  • THAT'S A DAUNTING TASK.
  • 00:16:11.100 --> 00:16:13.080
  • I REMEMBER THINKING
  • 00:16:13.080 --> 00:16:14.210
  • THAT SAME SCRIPT
  • 00:16:14.210 --> 00:16:15.230
  • POPPED BACK IN MY HEAD:
  • 00:16:15.230 --> 00:16:16.270
  • I'M NOT GOOD ENOUGH.
  • 00:16:16.270 --> 00:16:18.010
  • I'M NOT GOING TO ABLE
  • 00:16:18.010 --> 00:16:20.120
  • TO DO THIS TASK
  • 00:16:20.120 --> 00:16:22.090

  • THE SUBJECT OF REJECTION
