  • Sheila: WHEN THAT KIND OF STORM HITS YOUR LIFE
  • 00:00:06.190 --> 00:00:09.160
  • IT CHANGES EVERYTHING.
  • 00:00:09.190 --> 00:00:11.180
  • Announcer: NEXT! SHEILA WALSH HELPS US
  • 00:00:11.210 --> 00:00:13.200
  • FIND CHRIST IN THE STORMS.
  • 00:00:13.230 --> 00:00:16.100
  • Sheila: HOW DO YOU AND I STAND STRONG IN CHRIST
  • 00:00:16.130 --> 00:00:19.210
  • WHEN EVERYTHING AROUND US IS SHAKEN TO ITS CORE?
  • 00:00:19.240 --> 00:00:24.170
  • STORMS ARE UNPREDICTABLE BUT THE AMAZING THING IS
  • 00:00:24.200 --> 00:00:28.210
  • THE STORMS THAT HIT OUR LIVES, THEY TAKE US BY SURPRISE
  • 00:00:28.240 --> 00:00:33.210
  • BUT THEY DON'T TAKE GOD BY SURPRISE.
  • 00:00:33.240 --> 00:00:36.040
  • 00:00:39.090 --> 00:00:46.060
  • Sheila: I'M SHEILA WALSH.
  • 00:00:54.030 --> 00:00:57.030
  • WELCOME TO LIFE TODAY .
  • 00:00:57.030 --> 00:00:58.170
  • I'M SO GLAD THAT
  • 00:00:58.170 --> 00:00:59.210
  • YOU COULD JOIN US.
  • 00:00:59.210 --> 00:01:01.010
  • THE OTHER DAY I WAS SITTING
  • 00:01:01.010 --> 00:01:02.030
  • WORK ON A BOOK
  • 00:01:03.170 --> 00:01:05.060
  • AND MY PHONE MADE A PING
  • 00:01:05.060 --> 00:01:06.150
  • AND I KNEW I HAD A TEXT.
  • 00:01:06.150 --> 00:01:07.250
  • AND IT WAS FROM MY FRIEND,
  • 00:01:07.250 --> 00:01:09.030
  • KAY WARREN SAYING THAT
  • 00:01:09.030 --> 00:01:10.090
  • SHE AND RICK WERE
  • 00:01:10.090 --> 00:01:11.160
  • ON VACATION IN SCOTLAND.
  • 00:01:11.160 --> 00:01:12.270
  • THEY WERE ON THE ISLE OF SKYE
  • 00:01:12.270 --> 00:01:15.020
  • -- SUCH A BEAUTIFUL,
  • 00:01:15.020 --> 00:01:16.170
  • BEAUTIFUL PLACE!
  • 00:01:16.170 --> 00:01:18.050
  • SO I TALKED BACK AND FORTH
  • 00:01:18.050 --> 00:01:19.100
  • AND I SAID, "MAKE SURE
  • 00:01:19.100 --> 00:01:20.170
  • YOU GET FISH AND CHIPS!"
  • 00:01:20.170 --> 00:01:21.180
  • SHE SAID, "OH YEAH!
  • 00:01:21.180 --> 00:01:22.190
  • WE'VE ALREADY DONE THAT."
  • 00:01:22.190 --> 00:01:23.260
  • IT WAS JUST SO NICE
  • 00:01:23.260 --> 00:01:25.020
  • TO THINK OF MY FRIENDS
  • 00:01:25.020 --> 00:01:26.070
  • BEING IN MY HOMELAND.
  • 00:01:26.070 --> 00:01:28.130
  • I WAS BORN ON THE WEST COAST
  • 00:01:28.130 --> 00:01:30.120
  • OF SCOTLAND, WHICH IS
  • 00:01:30.120 --> 00:01:31.170
  • THE SAME SIDE AS SKYE,
  • 00:01:31.170 --> 00:01:33.010
  • AND ONE OF MY FAVORITE THINGS
  • 00:01:33.010 --> 00:01:34.070
  • TO DO WAS TO WALK ALONG
  • 00:01:34.070 --> 00:01:36.000
  • THE BEACH ON ONE OF
  • 00:01:36.000 --> 00:01:37.190
  • OUR WILD AND WINDY DAYS.
  • 00:01:37.190 --> 00:01:39.230
  • OUR COASTLINE IN SCOTLAND
  • 00:01:39.230 --> 00:01:41.070
  • IS VERY DIFFERENT
  • 00:01:41.070 --> 00:01:42.150
  • THAN WHAT YOU'D SEE
  • 00:01:42.150 --> 00:01:43.190
  • LIKE FOR EXAMPLE IN FLORIDA
  • 00:01:43.190 --> 00:01:45.080
  • OR EVEN IN CALIFORNIA.
  • 00:01:45.080 --> 00:01:46.290
  • THE SCOTTISH COASTLINE
  • 00:01:46.290 --> 00:01:48.030
  • IS RUGGED AND IT IS WILD.
  • 00:01:48.030 --> 00:01:50.200
  • WHEN I WAS A CHILD, I USED
  • 00:01:50.200 --> 00:01:51.220
  • TO GO DOWN TO THE BEACH
  • 00:01:51.220 --> 00:01:53.040
  • WITH MY GRANDMA AFTER A STORM
  • 00:01:53.040 --> 00:01:55.110
  • AND SEE WHAT THE OCEAN
  • 00:01:55.110 --> 00:01:57.020
  • HAD THROWN UP ONTO THE SAND.
  • 00:01:57.020 --> 00:01:59.140
  • IT IS FASCINATING BUT
  • 00:01:59.140 --> 00:02:00.280
  • THINGS THAT HAD BEEN BURIED
  • 00:02:00.280 --> 00:02:02.220
  • IN THE WATER WOULD SUDDENLY
  • 00:02:02.220 --> 00:02:04.200
  • BE TOSSED UP ONTO THE SHORE
  • 00:02:04.200 --> 00:02:06.140
  • AND SHE AND I WOULD GO
  • 00:02:06.140 --> 00:02:07.230
  • OFF ON A TREASURE HUNT.
  • 00:02:07.230 --> 00:02:09.110
  • WE FOUND ALL SORTS OF THINGS.
  • 00:02:09.110 --> 00:02:12.000
  • WE'D FIND PIECES OF
  • 00:02:12.000 --> 00:02:13.120
  • COLORED GLASS THAT HAD BEEN
  • 00:02:13.120 --> 00:02:14.210
  • RUBBED SMOOTH BY THE SAND,
  • 00:02:14.210 --> 00:02:16.100
  • AND UNUSUAL SHELLS.
  • 00:02:16.100 --> 00:02:17.270
  • ONCE I EVEN FOUND
  • 00:02:17.270 --> 00:02:19.050
  • A DIAMOND RING!
  • 00:02:19.050 --> 00:02:20.210
  • SO THE OCEAN GAVE UP THINGS
  • 00:02:20.210 --> 00:02:22.210
  • THAT NOBODY KNEW
  • 00:02:22.210 --> 00:02:23.240
  • WERE HIDDEN THERE.
  • 00:02:23.240 --> 00:02:25.140
  • I THINK THAT'S TRUE
  • 00:02:25.140 --> 00:02:26.220
  • IN LIFE AS WELL.
  • 00:02:26.220 --> 00:02:28.100
  • WHEN YOU AND I WALK THROUGH
  • 00:02:28.100 --> 00:02:29.160
  • A STORM IT BRINGS
  • 00:02:29.160 --> 00:02:31.090
  • WHAT WE REALLY BELIEVE
  • 00:02:31.090 --> 00:02:33.070
  • TO THE SURFACE.
  • 00:02:33.070 --> 00:02:35.030
  • WE SAY I BELIEVE GOD IS GOOD
  • 00:02:35.160 --> 00:02:38.160
  • UNTIL PRAYER AFTER PRAYER
  • 00:02:38.160 --> 00:02:40.210
  • SEEMS TO GO UNANSWERED.
  • 00:02:40.210 --> 00:02:42.190
  • I BELIEVE GOD IS KIND
  • 00:02:42.190 --> 00:02:44.270
  • UNTIL YOU HAVE TO DO
  • 00:02:44.270 --> 00:02:46.250
  • WHAT ONE OF MY FRIENDS
  • 00:02:46.250 --> 00:02:48.000
  • THE UNTHINKABLE --
  • 00:02:49.120 --> 00:02:50.270
  • AND BURY A CHILD.
  • 00:02:50.270 --> 00:02:52.130
  • I BELIEVE THAT GOD SEES ME
  • 00:02:52.130 --> 00:02:54.190
  • OR YOU STILL CAN'T FIND
  • 00:02:56.290 --> 00:02:58.130
  • A HUSBAND OR YOU CAN'T
  • 00:02:58.130 --> 00:03:00.020
  • PAY YOUR BILLS.
  • 00:03:00.020 --> 00:03:01.270
  • OR LIKE A LETTER I GOT
  • 00:03:01.270 --> 00:03:03.020
  • LAST NIGHT FROM A VIEWER,
  • 00:03:03.020 --> 00:03:05.150
  • I CAN'T SHAKE THIS ADDICTION.
  • 00:03:05.150 --> 00:03:08.030
  • DEVASTATING STORMS REVEAL
  • 00:03:08.030 --> 00:03:10.050
  • WHAT WE REALLY BELIEVE
  • 00:03:10.050 --> 00:03:12.070
  • RATHER THAN WHAT WE THINK
  • 00:03:12.070 --> 00:03:13.160
  • WE BELIEVE OR EVEN WHAT
  • 00:03:13.160 --> 00:03:15.000
  • WE HOPE WE WISHED THAT
  • 00:03:15.000 --> 00:03:16.170
  • WE COULD BELIEVE.
  • 00:03:16.170 --> 00:03:18.130
  • SOME OF THE EMOTIONS
  • 00:03:18.130 --> 00:03:19.210
  • THAT GET TOSSED UP ONTO
  • 00:03:19.210 --> 00:03:20.260
  • THE SHORELINE OF OUR HEARTS,
  • 00:03:20.260 --> 00:03:22.160
  • THINGS LIKE ANGER THAT
  • 00:03:22.160 --> 00:03:24.050
  • YOU DIDN'T KNOW WAS THERE,
  • 00:03:24.050 --> 00:03:25.240
  • REGRET, DISAPPOINTMENT,
  • 00:03:25.240 --> 00:03:28.200
  • FEAR, INSECURITY,
  • 00:03:29.100 --> 00:03:32.100
  • SHAME, UNFORGIVENESS,
  • 00:03:32.100 --> 00:03:35.020
  • WHICH SOMETIMES TAKES US
  • 00:03:35.020 --> 00:03:36.110
  • BY SURPRISE.
  • 00:03:36.110 --> 00:03:37.210
  • WE THINK, I KNOW
  • 00:03:37.210 --> 00:03:38.290
  • I FORGAVE THAT PERSON
  • 00:03:38.290 --> 00:03:40.050
  • AND THEN SOMETHING
  • 00:03:40.050 --> 00:03:41.090
  • TRIGGERS IT AND WOW,
  • 00:03:41.090 --> 00:03:42.180
  • IT IS RIGHT THERE AGAIN.
  • 00:03:42.180 --> 00:03:44.000
  • -- HEARTACHE,
  • 00:03:44.000 --> 00:03:45.090
  • SOMETIMES EVEN BITTERNESS.
  • 00:03:45.090 --> 00:03:46.230
  • SO HERE'S MY QUESTION
  • 00:03:46.230 --> 00:03:47.260
  • FOR US TODAY.
  • 00:03:47.260 --> 00:03:49.080
  • HOW DO YOU AND I STAND STRONG
  • 00:03:49.080 --> 00:03:51.060
  • IN CHRIST WHEN EVERYTHING
  • 00:03:51.060 --> 00:03:53.060
  • AROUND US IS SHAKEN
  • 00:03:53.060 --> 00:03:55.060
  • TO ITS CORE?
  • 00:03:55.060 --> 00:03:57.050
  • GOD'S WORD TELL US THIS.
  • 00:03:57.050 --> 00:03:59.090
  • DO YOU REMEMBER THE SCENE
  • 00:04:23.200 --> 00:04:24.260
  • IN THE MOVIE,
  • 00:04:24.260 --> 00:04:26.050
  • THE WIZARD OF OZ WHERE
  • 00:04:26.050 --> 00:04:27.180
  • DOROTHY IS LOOKING OUT ON
  • 00:04:27.180 --> 00:04:28.250
  • A BLEAK LANDSCAPE AND
  • 00:04:28.250 --> 00:04:30.170
  • SHE SINGS THE WELL-LOVED SONG,
  • 00:04:30.170 --> 00:04:32.230
  • "SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW"?
  • 00:04:32.230 --> 00:04:35.190
  • WELL, DOROTHY MAY HAVE BEEN
  • 00:04:35.190 --> 00:04:36.280
  • SHE HAD NO IDEA IT WAS
  • 00:04:39.250 --> 00:04:41.170
  • ACTUALLY A TORNADO THAT WAS
  • 00:04:41.170 --> 00:04:43.100
  • HEADED RIGHT FOR HER.
  • 00:04:43.220 --> 00:04:46.220
  • HITS YOUR LIFE
  • 00:04:48.140 --> 00:04:49.240
  • IT CHANGES EVERYTHING.
  • 00:04:49.240 --> 00:04:51.150
  • IT CHANGES THE LANDSCAPE.
  • 00:04:51.150 --> 00:04:53.130
  • YOU DIDN'T SIGN UP FOR IT.
  • 00:04:53.130 --> 00:04:56.000
  • NO WARNING. DEVASTATING.
  • 00:04:56.100 --> 00:04:59.100
  • IT MIGHT BE THAT SUDDENLY,
  • 00:04:59.100 --> 00:05:00.210
  • YOU WENT TO THE DOCTOR
  • 00:05:00.210 --> 00:05:02.040
  • AND YOU GOT A DIAGNOSIS
  • 00:05:02.040 --> 00:05:03.130
  • YOU DIDN'T SEE COMING.
  • 00:05:03.130 --> 00:05:04.220
  • NOBODY WARNED YOU.
  • 00:05:04.220 --> 00:05:06.030
  • OR YOUR HUSBAND OR WIFE
  • 00:05:06.030 --> 00:05:07.080
  • THAT YOU'VE LOVED FOR YEARS
  • 00:05:07.080 --> 00:05:08.120
  • SUDDENLY LOOKS YOU
  • 00:05:08.120 --> 00:05:09.160
  • IN THE EYE AND SAID,
  • 00:05:09.160 --> 00:05:10.220
  • "I DON'T LOVE YOU ANYMORE."
  • 00:05:10.220 --> 00:05:12.000
  • THOSE KIND OF EMOTIONAL
  • 00:05:12.000 --> 00:05:13.090
  • STORMS ARE DEVASTATING.
  • 00:05:13.130 --> 00:05:16.130
  • BUT I ACTUALLY GOT TO SEE
  • 00:05:16.130 --> 00:05:17.220
  • A PICTURE OF WHAT THAT
  • 00:05:17.220 --> 00:05:19.080
  • LOOKS LIKE IN A PHYSICAL WAY
  • 00:05:19.080 --> 00:05:21.090
  • IN OKLAHOMA
  • 00:05:21.090 --> 00:05:22.220
  • JUST A FEW YEARS AGO.
  • 00:05:22.220 --> 00:05:24.250
  • YOU MAY REMEMBER THIS.
  • 00:05:24.250 --> 00:05:26.060
  • ON MAY THE 20th, 2013
  • 00:05:26.110 --> 00:05:29.110
  • AN F-5 TORNADO TOUCHED DOWN
  • 00:05:29.110 --> 00:05:32.030
  • IN MOORE, OKLAHOMA.
  • 00:05:32.030 --> 00:05:34.050
  • IT WAS ALMOST A MILE WIDE AND
  • 00:05:34.050 --> 00:05:36.190
  • STAYED ON THE GROUND FOR --
  • 00:05:36.190 --> 00:05:39.060
  • THIS IS PRETTY UNPRECEDENTED,
  • 00:05:39.060 --> 00:05:40.200
  • 39 MINUTES ON THE GROUND!
  • 00:05:40.200 --> 00:05:43.200
  • TWENTY-THREE PEOPLE DIED
  • 00:05:43.200 --> 00:05:45.060
  • THAT DAY; SEVEN OF THEM
  • 00:05:45.060 --> 00:05:47.230
  • WERE EIGHT-YEAR OLD CHILDREN
  • 00:05:47.230 --> 00:05:49.090
  • FROM THE SAME CLASS.
  • 00:05:49.090 --> 00:05:51.080
  • WELL, AS DAWN BROKE
  • 00:05:51.080 --> 00:05:52.130
  • THE FOLLOWING MORNING,
  • 00:05:52.130 --> 00:05:53.220
  • THE SCENE WAS
  • 00:05:53.220 --> 00:05:55.020
  • ALMOST INDESCRIBABLE.
  • 00:05:55.020 --> 00:05:56.110
  • ENTIRE STREETS HAD BEEN
  • 00:05:56.110 --> 00:05:57.190
  • SIMPLY WIPED OFF THE MAP.
  • 00:05:57.190 --> 00:06:00.110
  • WELL, SAMARITAN'S PURSE
  • 00:06:00.110 --> 00:06:01.230
  • CONTACTED LOCAL CHURCHES
  • 00:06:01.230 --> 00:06:03.070
  • AND CHRISTIAN GROUPS
  • 00:06:03.070 --> 00:06:04.140
  • TO HELP WITH THE CLEANUP.
  • 00:06:04.140 --> 00:06:05.290
  • SO I WENT WITH SIX
  • 00:06:05.290 --> 00:06:07.060
  • OF MY FRIENDS.
  • 00:06:07.060 --> 00:06:08.180
  • WE MET IN THE PARKING LOT
  • 00:06:08.180 --> 00:06:09.240
  • OF A CHURCH EARLY IN
  • 00:06:09.240 --> 00:06:11.070
  • THE MORNING AND PRAYED
  • 00:06:11.070 --> 00:06:12.110
  • BEFORE THE DAY BEGAN.
  • 00:06:12.110 --> 00:06:13.230
  • THEN WE WERE DRIVEN
  • 00:06:13.230 --> 00:06:14.290
  • INTO THE WORST HIT AREA.
  • 00:06:14.290 --> 00:06:17.050
  • HONESTLY, I'VE NEVER SEEN
  • 00:06:17.050 --> 00:06:18.070
  • ANYTHING LIKE IT IN MY LIFE.
  • 00:06:18.070 --> 00:06:20.190
  • YOU CAN WATCH IT ON TELEVISION
  • 00:06:20.190 --> 00:06:21.250
  • AND THINK YOU'VE GOT
  • 00:06:21.250 --> 00:06:23.000
  • A PICTURE OF IT BUT
  • 00:06:23.000 --> 00:06:24.100
  • TO ACTUALLY BE THERE,
  • 00:06:24.100 --> 00:06:26.010
  • TO WALK WHERE PEOPLE
  • 00:06:26.010 --> 00:06:27.110
  • USED TO LIVE AND ALL
  • 00:06:27.110 --> 00:06:28.150
  • THEIR HOMES WERE GONE --
  • 00:06:28.150 --> 00:06:31.000
  • EVERYTHING WAS FLATTENED.
  • 00:06:31.000 --> 00:06:33.220
  • WELL, I WAS ASSIGNED
  • 00:06:33.220 --> 00:06:34.260
  • TO WHAT WAS LEFT
  • 00:06:34.260 --> 00:06:36.030
  • OF ONE PARTICULAR HOME.
  • 00:06:36.030 --> 00:06:38.090
  • IT LITERALLY WAS
  • 00:06:38.090 --> 00:06:39.140
  • JUST A FOUNDATION.
  • 00:06:39.140 --> 00:06:40.200
  • EVERYTHING ELSE WAS RUBBLE.
  • 00:06:40.200 --> 00:06:42.220
  • THE MAN WHOSE HOUSE IT WAS,
  • 00:06:42.220 --> 00:06:45.100
  • CAME BY WHILE WE WERE
  • 00:06:45.100 --> 00:06:46.150
  • CLEANING UP AND ALL
  • 00:06:46.150 --> 00:06:48.050
  • HE WANTED WAS ONE THING,
  • 00:06:48.050 --> 00:06:51.050
  • "CAN YOU HELP ME FIND
  • 00:06:51.050 --> 00:06:52.140
  • MY SON'S MEDALS?"
  • 00:06:52.140 --> 00:06:54.140
  • HE HAD LOST HIS SON
  • 00:06:54.140 --> 00:06:55.230
  • IN BATTLE AND THIS WAS
  • 00:06:55.230 --> 00:06:57.050
  • WHAT HE HAD LEFT.
  • 00:06:57.050 --> 00:06:59.250
  • I'M HAPPY TO TELL YOU
  • 00:06:59.250 --> 00:07:01.080
  • THAT AFTER SOME DIGGING
  • 00:07:01.080 --> 00:07:02.180
  • THROUGH PILES WE FOUND THEM.
  • 00:07:02.180 --> 00:07:04.270
  • WELL, THE NEXT DAY I WAS
  • 00:07:04.270 --> 00:07:06.050
  • WORKING ON A DIFFERENT UNIT
  • 00:07:06.050 --> 00:07:08.030
  • AND THE ELDERLY MAN
  • 00:07:08.030 --> 00:07:09.180
  • WHOSE HOME THIS HAD BEEN
  • 00:07:09.180 --> 00:07:11.090
  • WAS STANDING THERE IN TEARS.
  • 00:07:11.270 --> 00:07:14.270
  • I STOOD BESIDE HIM FOR
  • 00:07:14.270 --> 00:07:16.040
  • A WHILE JUST HOLDING HIS HAND,
  • 00:07:16.040 --> 00:07:18.170
  • NEITHER OF US SAYING A WORD.
  • 00:07:18.170 --> 00:07:20.200
  • WHEN HE WAS ABLE TO SPEAK
  • 00:07:20.200 --> 00:07:22.110
  • HE TOLD ME THE ONLY THING
  • 00:07:22.110 --> 00:07:23.200
  • HE WANTED TO FIND WAS
  • 00:07:23.200 --> 00:07:25.070
  • HIS WIFE'S WEDDING RING.
  • 00:07:25.070 --> 00:07:27.190
  • SHE HAD PASSED
  • 00:07:27.190 --> 00:07:28.290
  • A COUPLE OF YEARS EARLIER.
  • 00:07:28.290 --> 00:07:30.130
  • AND HONESTLY, I LOOKED OUT
  • 00:07:30.130 --> 00:07:32.010
  • AT THE MASSIVE PILE OF RUBBLE;
  • 00:07:32.010 --> 00:07:34.220
  • SOME FROM HIS HOUSE
  • 00:07:34.220 --> 00:07:35.250
  • AND SOME FROM OTHER HOMES
  • 00:07:35.250 --> 00:07:37.080
  • THAT HAD LANDED ON HIS.
  • 00:07:37.080 --> 00:07:39.120
  • AND I WONDERED, HOW ON EARTH
  • 00:07:39.120 --> 00:07:40.280
  • ARE WE GOING TO FIND
  • 00:07:40.280 --> 00:07:42.050
  • A SIMPLE GOLD BAND IN
  • 00:07:42.050 --> 00:07:44.090
  • THE MIDDLE OF ALL THIS MESS?
  • 00:07:44.090 --> 00:07:46.210
  • I SERIOUSLY PRAYED ABOUT IT.
  • 00:07:47.120 --> 00:07:50.120
  • I SAID, "LORD, PLEASE HELP US.
  • 00:07:50.120 --> 00:07:52.210
  • THIS IS ALL HE WANTS.
  • 00:07:52.210 --> 00:07:54.180
  • HIS WIFE'S RING.
  • 00:07:56.180 --> 00:07:57.280
  • SEND YOUR ANGELS.
  • 00:07:57.280 --> 00:07:59.010
  • YOU'VE GOT TO KNOW
  • 00:07:59.010 --> 00:08:00.080
  • WHERE IT IS."
  • 00:08:00.080 --> 00:08:01.150
  • WELL, WE SEARCHED FOR HOURS.
  • 00:08:01.150 --> 00:08:02.280
  • FINALLY, AS THE SUN WAS
  • 00:08:05.000 --> 00:08:06.160
  • BEGINNING TO GO DOWN
  • 00:08:06.160 --> 00:08:08.270
  • AND WE WERE ABOUT TO HAVE
  • 00:08:08.270 --> 00:08:10.000
  • TO LEAVE BECAUSE THERE WAS
  • 00:08:10.000 --> 00:08:11.040
  • NO ELECTRICITY, I CLIMBED
  • 00:08:11.040 --> 00:08:12.170
  • OVER PART OF THE RUBBLE
  • 00:08:12.170 --> 00:08:14.040
  • TO WHERE THERE WAS
  • 00:08:14.040 --> 00:08:15.100
  • A CHRISTMAS TREE LYING
  • 00:08:15.100 --> 00:08:16.160
  • ON TOP OF A PILE OF WOOD
  • 00:08:16.160 --> 00:08:18.260
  • AND THERE, HANGING ON ONE
  • 00:08:18.260 --> 00:08:20.290
  • OF THE BRANCHES LIKE A
  • 00:08:20.290 --> 00:08:22.140
  • CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT WAS
  • 00:08:22.140 --> 00:08:24.010
  • HIS WIFE'S WEDDING BAND.
  • 00:08:24.010 --> 00:08:26.060
  • IT WAS A BEAUTIFUL MOMENT.
  • 00:08:26.060 --> 00:08:28.200
  • HIS TEARS WERE FOR
  • 00:08:28.200 --> 00:08:29.280
  • A DIFFERENT REASON THEN.
  • 00:08:29.280 --> 00:08:32.150
  • WELL, WE ALL FINISHED THE DAY
  • 00:08:32.150 --> 00:08:34.090
  • IN PRAYER, TEARS RUNNING
  • 00:08:34.090 --> 00:08:36.000
  • DOWN OUR DIRTY FACES
  • 00:08:36.000 --> 00:08:38.050
  • AND AT EACH PLACE,
  • 00:08:38.050 --> 00:08:39.170
  • EACH UNIT WHERE WE'D BEEN
  • 00:08:39.170 --> 00:08:40.220
  • ABLE TO CLEAR EVERYTHING OFF,
  • 00:08:40.220 --> 00:08:43.110
  • SAMARITAN'S PURSE HAD
  • 00:08:43.110 --> 00:08:44.160
  • PROVIDED A BIBLE.
  • 00:08:44.160 --> 00:08:46.240
  • I GOT THE PRIVILEGE
  • 00:08:46.240 --> 00:08:48.010
  • OF GIVING IT TO
  • 00:08:48.010 --> 00:08:49.110
  • THE OLDER GENTLEMAN.
  • 00:08:49.110 --> 00:08:50.290
  • HE TOOK THE BIBLE IN HIS HANDS
  • 00:08:50.290 --> 00:08:52.110
  • AND HE SAID, "YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:08:52.110 --> 00:08:54.150
  • THIS IS A GOOD PLACE
  • 00:08:54.150 --> 00:08:55.230
  • TO START AGAIN."
  • 00:08:55.230 --> 00:08:58.000
  • THE TRUTH IS HEARTBREAKING
  • 00:08:58.000 --> 00:08:59.120
  • STORMS HIT US ALL.
  • 00:08:59.130 --> 00:09:02.150
  • "MY HUSBAND HAS LEFT ME
  • 00:09:02.150 --> 00:09:03.260
  • AND OUR THREE CHILDREN
  • 00:09:03.260 --> 00:09:05.010
  • FOR ANOTHER WOMAN.
  • 00:09:05.010 --> 00:09:06.060
  • WHAT DO I TELL THEM?
  • 00:09:06.060 --> 00:09:07.170
  • THEY'RE HEARTBROKEN."
  • 00:09:07.170 --> 00:09:08.240
  • I GOT THAT LETTER LAST WEEK.
  • 00:09:08.240 --> 00:09:10.040
  • ANOTHER POST ON MY FACEBOOK
  • 00:09:10.040 --> 00:09:11.090
  • PAGE, "I RAISED
  • 00:09:11.090 --> 00:09:12.180
  • MY SON IN CHURCH.
  • 00:09:12.180 --> 00:09:14.000
  • NOW HE HAS WALKED AWAY.
  • 00:09:14.000 --> 00:09:15.230
  • HE'S ON DRUGS.
  • 00:09:15.230 --> 00:09:17.000
  • I DON'T KNOW WHERE HE IS.
  • 00:09:17.000 --> 00:09:18.180
  • MY HEART IS BREAKING."
  • 00:09:18.180 --> 00:09:20.210
  • SOMEONE ELSE: "MY DAUGHTER'S
  • 00:09:20.210 --> 00:09:22.050
  • CANCER IS BACK.
  • 00:09:22.050 --> 00:09:23.240
  • WHY WOULD GOD ALLOW THIS?"
  • 00:09:24.100 --> 00:09:27.100
  • TO BE HONEST, I THINK
  • 00:09:27.100 --> 00:09:29.120
  • AS THE CHURCH WE DON'T ALWAYS
  • 00:09:29.120 --> 00:09:30.170
  • DO A GREAT JOB AT WALKING
  • 00:09:30.170 --> 00:09:32.150
  • WITH THOSE WHO ARE
  • 00:09:32.150 --> 00:09:33.160
  • GRIEVING DEEPLY.
  • 00:09:33.160 --> 00:09:35.270
  • WE KIND OF WANT PEOPLE
  • 00:09:35.270 --> 00:09:37.020
  • TO GET OVER THINGS.
  • 00:09:37.020 --> 00:09:38.120
  • AND SOMETIMES WE USE
  • 00:09:38.120 --> 00:09:39.200
  • THE WORD OF GOD MORE AS
  • 00:09:39.200 --> 00:09:40.240
  • A WEAPON THAN AS
  • 00:09:40.240 --> 00:09:42.040
  • A HEALING ORNAMENT.
  • 00:09:42.040 --> 00:09:43.270
  • MY FRIEND, MY DEAR FRIEND
  • 00:09:43.270 --> 00:09:45.090
  • I'VE WORKED WITH FOR YEARS,
  • 00:09:45.090 --> 00:09:46.160
  • IT'S INTERESTING, RIGHT IN
  • 00:09:54.020 --> 00:09:55.120
  • THE MIDDLE OF THE BOOK
  • 00:09:55.120 --> 00:09:56.200
  • OF PSALMS WE READ PSALM 88.
  • 00:09:57.080 --> 00:10:00.080
  • IT IS ONE OF THE MOST
  • 00:10:00.080 --> 00:10:01.220
  • HEART-WRENCHING PSALMS.
  • 00:10:01.220 --> 00:10:04.160
  • MANY OF DAVID'S PSALMS START
  • 00:10:04.160 --> 00:10:06.130
  • WITH PAIN OR TROUBLE BUT
  • 00:10:06.130 --> 00:10:08.020
  • THEY END UP WITH DAVID
  • 00:10:08.020 --> 00:10:09.140
  • REMEMBERING THE GOODNESS
  • 00:10:09.140 --> 00:10:10.250
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:10:10.250 --> 00:10:12.060
  • TELLING HIMSELF,
  • 00:10:12.060 --> 00:10:13.180
  • "BLESS THE LORD, O MY SOUL."
  • 00:10:13.180 --> 00:10:15.010
  • BUT NOT PSALM 88.
  • 00:10:15.100 --> 00:10:18.100
  • NOW THIS IS HOW
  • 00:10:48.220 --> 00:10:50.000
  • I WOULD IMAGINE YOU PROBABLY
  • 00:11:00.150 --> 00:11:01.200
  • HAVEN'T HEARD A BUNCH
  • 00:11:01.200 --> 00:11:02.240
  • OF SERMONS ON THAT PSALM.
  • 00:11:02.240 --> 00:11:04.240
  • BUT IT MADE ME WANT TO ASK,
  • 00:11:04.240 --> 00:11:06.030
  • LORD, WHY IS THAT THERE?
  • 00:11:06.030 --> 00:11:07.220
  • WHY, RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE
  • 00:11:07.220 --> 00:11:09.220
  • OF THE PSALMS, WOULD YOU
  • 00:11:09.220 --> 00:11:11.020
  • INCLUDE A PSALM THAT
  • 00:11:11.020 --> 00:11:12.230
  • HONESTLY OFFERS LITTLE HOPE?
  • 00:11:13.110 --> 00:11:16.110
  • I BELIEVE IT IS THERE BECAUSE
  • 00:11:16.110 --> 00:11:18.170
  • THERE ARE SEASONS WHEN THAT
  • 00:11:18.170 --> 00:11:20.130
  • IS ALL THAT SEEMS TO BE TRUE.
  • 00:11:20.140 --> 00:11:23.140
  • THERE ARE TIMES WHEN WE FEEL
  • 00:11:24.270 --> 00:11:26.140
  • AS IF THE DARKNESS WILL
  • 00:11:26.140 --> 00:11:28.000
  • NEVER LIFT AND HE IS GIVING US
  • 00:11:28.000 --> 00:11:29.240
  • ONE OF THE GREATEST
  • 00:11:33.010 --> 00:11:34.050
  • UNANSWERED QUESTIONS
  • 00:11:34.050 --> 00:11:35.220
  • ON THIS EARTH IS: WHY?
  • 00:11:36.080 --> 00:11:39.080
  • I REMEMBER TALKING TO A WOMAN
  • 00:11:39.080 --> 00:11:40.110
  • AFTER A CONFERENCE
  • 00:11:40.110 --> 00:11:41.240
  • AND HER THING WAS,
  • 00:11:41.240 --> 00:11:43.030
  • WE PRAYED FOR YEARS TO BE ABLE
  • 00:11:43.030 --> 00:11:44.150
  • TO HAVE A CHILD AND EVENTUALLY
  • 00:11:44.150 --> 00:11:46.190
  • I GOT PREGNANT; AND THAT
  • 00:11:46.190 --> 00:11:48.030
  • LITTLE ONE ONLY LIVED
  • 00:11:48.030 --> 00:11:49.090
  • FOR NINE MONTHS.
  • 00:11:49.090 --> 00:11:51.220
  • THEN AFTER MAYBE TWO
  • 00:11:51.220 --> 00:11:52.270
  • OR THREE YEARS OF AGONY
  • 00:11:52.270 --> 00:11:54.260
  • AND TEARS AND HEALING, SHE WAS
  • 00:11:54.260 --> 00:11:57.020
  • ABLE TO GET PREGNANT AGAIN
  • 00:11:57.020 --> 00:11:59.220
  • AND THAT LITTLE ONE
  • 00:11:59.220 --> 00:12:01.110
  • LIVED FOR SIX MONTHS.
  • 00:12:01.110 --> 00:12:03.190
  • HOW DO YOU RECONCILE THOSE
  • 00:12:03.190 --> 00:12:05.170
  • THINGS WITH A GOD OF LOVE?
  • 00:12:07.150 --> 00:12:10.150
  • THAT MAY BE ONE OF
  • 00:12:10.150 --> 00:12:11.190
  • THE GREATEST CHALLENGES
  • 00:12:11.190 --> 00:12:12.270
  • TO YOUR FAITH.
  • 00:12:12.270 --> 00:12:14.090
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON
  • 00:12:14.090 --> 00:12:15.140
  • IN YOUR LIFE OR WHAT
  • 00:12:15.140 --> 00:12:16.200
  • YOUR HISTORY HAS BEEN LIKE
  • 00:12:16.200 --> 00:12:17.280
  • OR WHAT YOUR PRESENT
  • 00:12:17.280 --> 00:12:19.050
  • IS LIKE RIGHT NOW BUT
  • 00:12:19.050 --> 00:12:20.270
  • SOMETIMES WHEN WE LOOK AT
  • 00:12:20.270 --> 00:12:22.060
  • OUR CIRCUMSTANCES AND
  • 00:12:22.060 --> 00:12:24.020
  • THOSE WITH OUR BELIEF
  • 00:12:26.020 --> 00:12:27.180
  • IN A GOD OF LOVE, A GOD
  • 00:12:27.180 --> 00:12:28.250
  • WHO IS POWERFUL AND GOOD,
  • 00:12:28.250 --> 00:12:30.220
  • WE DON'T UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:12:33.170 --> 00:12:35.090
  • IN ONE OF THE DARKEST NIGHTS
  • 00:12:35.090 --> 00:12:36.270
  • OF MY LIFE WHEN I LITERALLY
  • 00:12:37.080 --> 00:12:40.080
  • DIDN'T KNOW IF I WOULD LIVE
  • 00:12:40.080 --> 00:12:42.080
  • TO SEE MORNING,
  • 00:12:42.080 --> 00:12:43.280
  • I PRAYED THE SIMPLE,
  • 00:12:44.010 --> 00:12:47.010
  • THE MOST GUTTURAL PRAYER
  • 00:12:47.010 --> 00:12:48.210
  • I'VE EVER PRAYED.
  • 00:12:48.210 --> 00:12:50.100
  • I HAD TRIED FOR SO MANY YEARS
  • 00:12:50.100 --> 00:12:52.120
  • TO BE THE PERFECT CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:12:52.120 --> 00:12:54.020
  • TO GET IT ALL RIGHT,
  • 00:12:54.020 --> 00:12:55.070
  • TO DO ALL THE RIGHT THINGS
  • 00:12:55.070 --> 00:12:56.140
  • THINKING THAT WOULD MAKE
  • 00:12:56.140 --> 00:12:57.200
  • GOD HAPPY WITH ME.
  • 00:12:57.200 --> 00:12:59.060
  • AND WHEN I EVENTUALLY ENDED UP
  • 00:12:59.060 --> 00:13:01.020
  • IN A PSYCHIATRIC WARD,
  • 00:13:01.020 --> 00:13:03.110
  • THE ONLY PRAYER I HAD LEFT
  • 00:13:03.110 --> 00:13:05.270
  • WAS ONE WORD.
  • 00:13:05.270 --> 00:13:08.140
  • I REMEMBER LAYING ON THE FLOOR
  • 00:13:08.140 --> 00:13:10.230
  • OF MY ROOM LITERALLY JUST
  • 00:13:10.230 --> 00:13:12.180
  • PRAYING OUT THE NAME, "JESUS!"
  • 00:13:12.240 --> 00:13:15.240
  • I HAD NOTHING ELSE --
  • 00:13:15.240 --> 00:13:17.260
  • "JESUS!"
  • 00:13:17.260 --> 00:13:19.220
  • WELL, I WANT YOU TO KNOW
  • 00:13:19.220 --> 00:13:21.100
  • WHEN YOU CALL ON THE NAME
  • 00:13:21.100 --> 00:13:23.190
  • OF THE LORD, HE IS
  • 00:13:23.190 --> 00:13:25.030
  • RIGHT THERE WITH YOU.
  • 00:13:25.140 --> 00:13:28.140
  • BUT I DISCOVERED THAT
  • 00:13:39.080 --> 00:13:40.140
  • TO BE TRUE THAT NIGHT.
  • 00:13:40.140 --> 00:13:41.250
  • I WROTE IN MY JOURNAL,
  • 00:13:41.250 --> 00:13:43.180
  • "I NEVER KNEW YOU LIVED
  • 00:13:43.180 --> 00:13:45.070
  • SO CLOSE TO THE FLOOR."
  • 00:13:45.080 --> 00:13:48.080
  • I'M USED TO...
  • 00:13:48.080 --> 00:13:49.190
  • I'VE BEEN IN CHURCH SINCE
  • 00:13:49.190 --> 00:13:50.220
  • I WAS JUST A BABY
  • 00:13:50.220 --> 00:13:52.050
  • OF WORSHIPPING AND SINGING
  • 00:13:52.050 --> 00:13:53.280
  • HOW MAJESTIC IS GOD,
  • 00:13:53.280 --> 00:13:55.120
  • AS WE SHOULD BECAUSE HE IS.
  • 00:13:55.120 --> 00:13:58.020
  • HE IS GOOD.
  • 00:13:58.020 --> 00:13:59.200
  • BUT WHAT I'VE DISCOVERED IS
  • 00:13:59.200 --> 00:14:01.010
  • IF YOU'RE IN A PLACE WHERE
  • 00:14:01.010 --> 00:14:02.120
  • THOSE WORDS ARE GONE
  • 00:14:02.120 --> 00:14:03.280
  • FROM YOUR LIPS AND YOU'RE
  • 00:14:03.280 --> 00:14:05.220
  • LITERALLY ON THE FLOOR,
  • 00:14:05.220 --> 00:14:08.050
  • JESUS IS SO CLOSE TO YOU.
  • 00:14:10.080 --> 00:14:13.080
  • I LOVE ROMANS 8:28.
  • 00:14:13.230 --> 00:14:16.230
  • SO WELL, WHERE IT TALKS
  • 00:14:18.110 --> 00:14:20.110
  • ABOUT ALL THINGS WORKING
  • 00:14:20.110 --> 00:14:22.080
  • TOGETHER FOR GOOD FOR
  • 00:14:22.080 --> 00:14:23.190
  • THOSE WHO LOVE THE LORD
  • 00:14:23.190 --> 00:14:24.270
  • AND ARE CALLED ACCORDING
  • 00:14:24.270 --> 00:14:26.020
  • TO HIS PURPOSE.
  • 00:14:26.020 --> 00:14:27.230
  • BUT SOMETIMES WE DON'T READ
  • 00:14:27.230 --> 00:14:29.040
  • THE VERSES BEFORE THAT
  • 00:14:29.040 --> 00:14:31.130
  • WHERE IT TALKS ABOUT
  • 00:14:31.130 --> 00:14:32.160
  • WHEN YOU'RE IN A PLACE
  • 00:14:32.160 --> 00:14:34.010
  • WHERE YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE
  • 00:14:34.010 --> 00:14:35.070
  • THE WORDS TO PRAY THAT
  • 00:14:35.070 --> 00:14:37.050
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT INTERCEDES
  • 00:14:37.050 --> 00:14:39.270
  • HE KNOWS THE WILL
  • 00:14:43.010 --> 00:14:44.040
  • OF THE FATHER AND
  • 00:14:44.040 --> 00:14:45.070
  • HE CAN PRAY FOR YOU.
  • 00:14:45.070 --> 00:14:48.020
  • IF YOU FIND YOURSELF
  • 00:14:48.020 --> 00:14:49.080
  • IN A PLACE LIKE THAT,
  • 00:14:49.080 --> 00:14:50.290
  • I ASK YOU THIS, ARE YOU ABLE
  • 00:14:50.290 --> 00:14:53.200
  • TO JUST HOLD ON
  • 00:14:53.200 --> 00:14:55.260
  • TO A LITTLE HOPE?
  • 00:14:55.260 --> 00:14:57.040
  • ARE YOU ABLE EVEN TO JUST
  • 00:14:57.040 --> 00:14:59.100
  • PRAY OUT THE NAME OF THE LORD?
  • 00:14:59.100 --> 00:15:01.240
  • THERE IS POWER
  • 00:15:01.240 --> 00:15:03.220
  • IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
  • 00:15:04.220 --> 00:15:07.220
  • THE LORD IS NEAR
  • 00:15:07.220 --> 00:15:09.060
  • TO THE BROKENHEARTED.
  • 00:15:09.060 --> 00:15:10.280
  • THE LORD WILL SAVE YOU
  • 00:15:10.280 --> 00:15:12.290
  • WHEN YOU'RE CRUSHED IN SPIRIT.
  • 00:15:12.290 --> 00:15:14.270
  • I'VE DISCOVERED A FEW THINGS
  • 00:15:14.270 --> 00:15:17.080
  • THAT KIND OF HELP ME
  • 00:15:17.080 --> 00:15:18.160
  • STAY ON TRACK WHEN
  • 00:15:18.160 --> 00:15:20.210
  • IF YOU FIND YOURSELF
  • 00:15:29.140 --> 00:15:30.220
  • IN AN EMERGENCY ROOM OR
  • 00:15:30.220 --> 00:15:31.250
  • THE FAMILY MEMBER STRUGGLING
  • 00:15:31.250 --> 00:15:33.070
  • AND IT IS IMMEDIATE,
  • 00:15:36.000 --> 00:15:37.010
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TIME TO COME
  • 00:15:37.010 --> 00:15:38.070
  • OUT WITH GREAT LONG PRAYERS.
  • 00:15:38.070 --> 00:15:40.030
  • BUT YOU CAN PRAY
  • 00:15:40.030 --> 00:15:41.060
  • THE NAME OF JESUS.
  • 00:15:41.060 --> 00:15:43.170
  • THAT REALLY IS HELPFUL TO ME
  • 00:15:44.250 --> 00:15:46.180
  • IS TO SPEAK OUT YOUR PAIN.
  • 00:15:46.290 --> 00:15:49.290
  • SO OFTEN WE THINK, WELL,
  • 00:15:49.290 --> 00:15:51.030
  • BECAUSE THAT SEEMS
  • 00:15:52.060 --> 00:15:53.080
  • SO DISRESPECTFUL OR
  • 00:15:53.080 --> 00:15:54.130
  • I CAN'T SAY THAT TO GOD.
  • 00:15:54.130 --> 00:15:57.020
  • BUT THAT'S WHY PSALM 88
  • 00:15:57.020 --> 00:15:59.070
  • IS IN THERE TO LET YOU KNOW
  • 00:15:59.070 --> 00:16:02.020
  • YOU GET TO TELL GOD
  • 00:16:02.020 --> 00:16:03.050
  • THE WHOLE TRUTH.
  • 00:16:03.050 --> 00:16:04.170
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO COME
  • 00:16:04.170 --> 00:16:05.210
  • WITH THE PERFECT WORDS.
  • 00:16:05.210 --> 00:16:07.050
  • GOD IS NOT LOOKING
  • 00:16:07.050 --> 00:16:08.080
  • FOR PERFECT WORDS.
  • 00:16:08.080 --> 00:16:09.170
  • HE IS LOOKING FOR YOUR HEART.
  • 00:16:09.170 --> 00:16:11.070
  • AND IF YOU'RE ABLE,
  • 00:16:11.070 --> 00:16:12.170
  • IN THE MIDST OF YOUR PAIN
  • 00:16:12.170 --> 00:16:13.260
  • TO PRAY THROUGH THAT PAIN
  • 00:16:13.260 --> 00:16:16.150
  • AND TELL HIM EXACTLY --
  • 00:16:16.150 --> 00:16:18.170
  • IF YOU'RE ANGRY, BE ANGRY
  • 00:16:18.170 --> 00:16:21.040
  • BUT BE ANGRY IN THE COMPANY
  • 00:16:21.040 --> 00:16:23.170
  • YOU MIGHT WANT TO COPY
  • 00:16:26.070 --> 00:16:27.130
  • A FEW POWERFUL SCRIPTURES
  • 00:16:27.130 --> 00:16:28.270
  • AND JUST HAVE THEM WITH YOU.
  • 00:16:28.270 --> 00:16:30.160
  • HERE'S A COUPLE OF
  • 00:16:30.160 --> 00:16:31.190
  • THE ONES I LOVE.
  • 00:16:31.190 --> 00:16:32.210
  • ISN'T THAT AMAZING?
  • 00:16:50.190 --> 00:16:51.250
  • GOD IS SINGING OVER YOU.
  • 00:16:51.250 --> 00:16:53.050
  • SCRIPTURE DOESN'T DENY
  • 00:17:05.130 --> 00:17:07.000
  • OUR PAIN.
  • 00:17:07.000 --> 00:17:08.090
  • IT'S WHY I'M LEARNING
  • 00:17:08.090 --> 00:17:09.150
  • TO PRAY OUT THE PSALMS.
  • 00:17:09.150 --> 00:17:11.090
  • I BELIEVE THAT GOD GAVE US
  • 00:17:11.090 --> 00:17:12.190
  • THE PSALMS, GAVE US HIS WORD
  • 00:17:12.190 --> 00:17:14.140
  • SO WE CAN PRAY THE WORD OF GOD
  • 00:17:14.140 --> 00:17:16.210
  • BACK TO OUR FATHER.
  • 00:17:16.210 --> 00:17:19.080
  • YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'LL DISCOVER?
  • 00:17:19.080 --> 00:17:20.290
  • WHATEVER YOU'RE FACING
  • 00:17:20.290 --> 00:17:22.090
  • THERE IS A PSALM THAT
  • 00:17:22.090 --> 00:17:23.130
  • WILL PUT WORDS TO IT.
  • 00:17:23.130 --> 00:17:24.260
  • IF YOU'RE IN A WONDERFUL PLACE
  • 00:17:24.260 --> 00:17:26.030
  • YOU WILL FIND PLENTY OF PSALMS
  • 00:17:26.030 --> 00:17:27.170
  • THAT WILL HELP YOU
  • 00:17:27.170 --> 00:17:28.250
  • EXPRESS YOUR PRAISE.
  • 00:17:28.250 --> 00:17:30.040
  • BUT IF YOU'RE IN A DARK
  • 00:17:30.040 --> 00:17:31.100
  • SEASON, YOU'RE STRUGGLING,
  • 00:17:31.100 --> 00:17:32.240
  • YOU'LL FIND IN THE PSALMS,
  • 00:17:32.240 --> 00:17:34.060
  • WORDS FOR WHAT'S GOING ON
  • 00:17:34.060 --> 00:17:35.110
  • IN YOUR HEART.
  • 00:17:35.110 --> 00:17:37.170
  • STORMS ARE UNPREDICTABLE.
  • 00:17:37.170 --> 00:17:40.090
  • BUT THE AMAZING THING IS
  • 00:17:40.090 --> 00:17:41.200
  • THE STORMS THAT HIT OUR LIVES,
  • 00:17:41.200 --> 00:17:43.280
  • THEY TAKE US BY SURPRISE
  • 00:17:43.280 --> 00:17:46.250
  • BUT THEY DON'T TAKE GOD
  • 00:17:46.250 --> 00:17:48.040
  • BY SURPRISE.
  • 00:17:48.040 --> 00:17:49.110
  • HE NEVER TAKES HIS EYES
  • 00:17:49.110 --> 00:17:50.180
  • OFF YOU.
  • 00:17:50.180 --> 00:17:51.260
  • HE SEES WHAT'S GOING ON
  • 00:17:51.260 --> 00:17:53.040
  • IN YOUR LIFE AND
  • 00:17:53.040 --> 00:17:54.140
  • HE LOVES YOU SO VERY MUCH.
  • 00:17:54.280 --> 00:17:57.280
  • I THINK THE TEMPTATION
  • 00:17:57.280 --> 00:17:59.150
  • WHEN A STORM HITS
  • 00:17:59.150 --> 00:18:00.220
  • YOU DIDN'T SEE COMING
  • 00:18:00.220 --> 00:18:02.010
  • IS TO THINK, GOD ARE YOU
  • 00:18:02.010 --> 00:18:03.110
  • NOT LISTENING TO MY PRAYERS?
  • 00:18:03.110 --> 00:18:05.110
  • SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO KEEP
  • 00:18:05.110 --> 00:18:06.220
  • PRAYING THROUGH YOUR PAIN.
  • 00:18:06.220 --> 00:18:08.200
  • SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO KEEP
  • 00:18:08.200 --> 00:18:09.220
  • PRAYING WHEN IT SEEMS
  • 00:18:09.220 --> 00:18:10.260
  • AS IF HEAVEN IS SILENT.
  • 00:18:11.030 --> 00:18:14.030
  • I WANT YOU TO REMEMBER,
  • 00:18:14.030 --> 00:18:15.280
  • KIND OF JOT DOWN ROMANS 8:26,
  • 00:18:18.000 --> 00:18:21.000
  • 27, AND 28 SO THAT
  • 00:18:21.000 --> 00:18:24.000
  • AS IF YOUR PRAYERS ARE NOT
  • 00:18:25.060 --> 00:18:26.070
  • GOING ANY HIGHER THAN
  • 00:18:26.070 --> 00:18:27.160
  • THE CEILING, YOU'LL REMEMBER
  • 00:18:27.160 --> 00:18:30.000
  • THAT YOU HAVE AN ADVOCATE
  • 00:18:30.000 --> 00:18:31.170
  • IN HEAVEN WHO IS PRAYING
  • 00:18:31.170 --> 00:18:33.210
  • FOR YOU.
  • 00:18:33.210 --> 00:18:35.290
  • NOW I HAVE THE PRIVILEGE,
  • 00:18:35.290 --> 00:18:37.110
  • WHEN WE GO ON OUR MISSION
  • 00:18:37.110 --> 00:18:38.230
  • TRIPS, I HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF
  • 00:18:38.230 --> 00:18:40.030
  • MEETING SO MANY GODLY WOMEN
  • 00:18:40.240 --> 00:18:43.240
  • BUT MANY OF THEM ARE
  • 00:18:43.240 --> 00:18:45.050
  • IN VERY DIFFICULT PLACES
  • 00:18:45.050 --> 00:18:47.110
  • AND IT IS NOT NECESSARILY
  • 00:18:47.110 --> 00:18:48.150
  • BECAUSE A STORM
  • 00:18:48.150 --> 00:18:49.230
  • HAS HIT THEIR LIFE.
  • 00:18:49.230 --> 00:18:51.020
  • SOMETIMES IT'S THE VERY LACK
  • 00:18:51.020 --> 00:18:52.120
  • OF A STORM.
  • 00:18:52.120 --> 00:18:53.220
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN THERE'S BEEN
  • 00:18:53.220 --> 00:18:54.270
  • NO RAIN IN AN AREA FOR MONTH
  • 00:18:54.270 --> 00:18:57.010
  • AND THERE IS
  • 00:18:59.040 --> 00:19:00.160
  • NO CLEAN DRINKING WATER,
  • 00:19:00.160 --> 00:19:02.030
  • LIFE BECOMES DEVASTATING.
  • 00:19:02.030 --> 00:19:04.150
  • I PERSONALLY BELIEVE AS LONG
  • 00:19:04.150 --> 00:19:06.100
  • AS THE BODY OF CHRIST IS
  • 00:19:06.100 --> 00:19:07.250
  • ON THIS PLANET THAT SHOULD
  • 00:19:07.250 --> 00:19:09.150
  • NOT BE HAPPENING.
  • 00:19:09.150 --> 00:19:11.050
  • SO HERE AT LIFE WE HAVE MADE
  • 00:19:11.050 --> 00:19:12.240
  • A COMMITMENT TO OUR PARTNERS
  • 00:19:12.240 --> 00:19:14.180
  • ON THE GROUND IN AFRICA.
  • 00:19:14.180 --> 00:19:16.060
  • WHAT OUR GOAL IS FOR THIS YEAR
  • 00:19:16.060 --> 00:19:18.000
  • IS 400 NEW WELLS
  • 00:19:18.000 --> 00:19:20.130
  • IN 15 NATIONS.
  • 00:19:20.130 --> 00:19:22.180
  • NOW THAT MIGHT SEEM LIKE
  • 00:19:22.180 --> 00:19:23.230
  • A HUGE TASK BUT LET ME
  • 00:19:23.230 --> 00:19:24.280
  • TELL YOU HOW YOU AND I,
  • 00:19:24.280 --> 00:19:26.060
  • TOGETHER, CAN DO IT.
  • 00:19:26.060 --> 00:19:27.170
  • DO YOU KNOW IF YOU GIVE $48
  • 00:19:27.170 --> 00:19:30.070
  • THAT WILL GIVE TEN PEOPLE
  • 00:19:30.070 --> 00:19:32.190
  • WATER FOR LIFE!
  • 00:19:32.190 --> 00:19:34.150
  • WHAT CAN YOU BUY FOR $48
  • 00:19:34.150 --> 00:19:35.230
  • THESE DAYS?
  • 00:19:35.230 --> 00:19:37.100
  • AND TO THINK YOU'D PROVIDE
  • 00:19:37.100 --> 00:19:38.130
  • CLEAN WATER FOR TEN PEOPLE,
  • 00:19:38.130 --> 00:19:40.020
  • NOT FOR THREE MONTHS,
  • 00:19:40.020 --> 00:19:41.260
  • FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES!
  • 00:19:41.260 --> 00:19:43.200
  • $144 WILL GIVE CLEAN WATER
  • 00:19:43.200 --> 00:19:46.050
  • TO 30 PEOPLE.
  • 00:19:46.050 --> 00:19:47.280
  • NOW SOME OF YOU GOD HAS
  • 00:19:47.280 --> 00:19:49.120
  • BLESSED AND WE CELEBRATE THAT
  • 00:19:49.120 --> 00:19:51.180
  • WITH YOU BUT YOU MAY BE
  • 00:19:51.180 --> 00:19:53.040
  • ABLE TO SAY, YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:19:53.040 --> 00:19:54.220
  • MAKE THAT 399 WELLS BECAUSE
  • 00:19:54.220 --> 00:19:56.160
  • I'M GOING TO GIVE ONE.
  • 00:19:56.160 --> 00:19:58.130
  • $4800 WILL PUT A WELL IN
  • 00:19:58.190 --> 00:20:01.190
  • A VILLAGE THAT WILL PROVIDE
  • 00:20:01.190 --> 00:20:03.100
  • WATER FOR A THOUSAND PEOPLE
  • 00:20:03.100 --> 00:20:05.200
  • IN THAT VILLAGE
  • 00:20:05.200 --> 00:20:06.250
  • FOR THEIR LIFETIME.
  • 00:20:06.250 --> 00:20:08.140
  • SO WOULD YOU HELP US DO THAT?
  • 00:20:08.140 --> 00:20:10.090
  • IF WE ALL DO WHAT WE CAN
  • 00:20:10.090 --> 00:20:11.250
  • WE CAN CHANGE THE FACE
  • 00:20:11.250 --> 00:20:13.130
  • OF THIS EARTH AND THEN
  • 00:20:13.130 --> 00:20:15.060
  • I BELIEVE WHEN WE REACH OUT
  • 00:20:15.060 --> 00:20:17.110
  • PRACTICALLY AND HELP THEM,
  • 00:20:17.110 --> 00:20:18.220
