  • DO YOU TELL GOD THE TRUTH
  • 00:00:07.040 --> 00:00:09.010
  • WHEN LIFE IS OVERWHELMING?
  • 00:00:09.040 --> 00:00:11.010
  • OR DO YOU TRY TO RUN AWAY?
  • 00:00:11.040 --> 00:00:13.010
  • Sheila: WHEN I ASKED HIM WHY HE SAID THIS,
  • 00:00:13.040 --> 00:00:15.010
  • "MOM, YOU TOLD ME THAT GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS.
  • 00:00:15.040 --> 00:00:18.180
  • I PRAYED THAT GOD WOULDN'T TAKE MY PAPA BUT HE DID.
  • 00:00:18.210 --> 00:00:22.170
  • SO I'M NOT TALKING TO GOD ANYMORE."
  • 00:00:22.200 --> 00:00:25.240
  • HAVE YOU EVER FELT LIKE THAT?
  • 00:00:25.270 --> 00:00:27.240
  • YOU'VE PRAYED AND YOU'VE PRAYED
  • 00:00:27.270 --> 00:00:29.280
  • AND GOD DID NOT ANSWER IN ANY WAY THAT MADE SENSE TO YOU
  • 00:00:30.010 --> 00:00:33.010
  • SO YOU THINK, WHAT'S THE POINT?
  • 00:00:33.040 --> 00:00:36.020
  • 00:00:42.240 --> 00:00:49.170
  • Sheila: WELCOME TO LIFE TODAY !
  • 00:00:54.220 --> 00:00:57.220
  • I'M SHEILA WALSH.
  • 00:00:57.220 --> 00:00:59.010
  • I'M SO GLAD YOU'RE JOINING US.
  • 00:00:59.010 --> 00:01:01.040
  • HAVE YOU EVER FOUND YOURSELF
  • 00:01:01.040 --> 00:01:02.120
  • WHERE IF YOU'RE REALLY HONEST
  • 00:01:03.210 --> 00:01:05.280
  • YOU KIND OF THINK TO THE LORD,
  • 00:01:05.280 --> 00:01:07.220
  • WHY DID YOU LET THAT HAPPEN?
  • 00:01:07.220 --> 00:01:09.280
  • I'M DOING EVERYTHING
  • 00:01:09.280 --> 00:01:11.140
  • IN MY LIFE
  • 00:01:11.140 --> 00:01:12.190
  • TO TRY AND HONOR YOU.
  • 00:01:12.190 --> 00:01:14.050
  • I'M TRYING TO MAKE SURE
  • 00:01:14.050 --> 00:01:15.140
  • MY CHILDREN HONOR YOU.
  • 00:01:15.140 --> 00:01:16.220
  • I'M DOING EVERYTHING I KNOW
  • 00:01:16.220 --> 00:01:18.280
  • TO LIVE IN A WAY
  • 00:01:18.280 --> 00:01:20.000
  • THAT I BELIEVE
  • 00:01:20.000 --> 00:01:21.070
  • WILL BE PLEASING TO YOU.
  • 00:01:21.070 --> 00:01:22.160
  • SO LORD, WHY DID YOU
  • 00:01:22.160 --> 00:01:24.040
  • LET THIS HAPPEN TO ME?
  • 00:01:24.040 --> 00:01:26.040
  • SOMETIMES WE'RE TEMPTED
  • 00:01:26.040 --> 00:01:27.090
  • TO LOOK AT OTHER PEOPLE
  • 00:01:27.090 --> 00:01:28.130
  • WHO ARE NOT EVEN LIVING
  • 00:01:28.130 --> 00:01:29.160
  • EVEN SLIGHTLY FOR THE LORD
  • 00:01:29.160 --> 00:01:32.000
  • AND IT SEEMS AS IF
  • 00:01:32.000 --> 00:01:33.050
  • EVERYTHING IS GOING WELL
  • 00:01:33.050 --> 00:01:34.070
  • WITH THEM.
  • 00:01:34.070 --> 00:01:35.150
  • YOU JUST WANT TO KNOW, WELL,
  • 00:01:35.150 --> 00:01:37.100
  • WHAT'S UP WITH THAT LORD?
  • 00:01:37.100 --> 00:01:39.120
  • I SAW THAT
  • 00:01:39.120 --> 00:01:40.240
  • IN MY SON'S RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:01:40.240 --> 00:01:43.090
  • WITH MY FATHER-IN-LAW,
  • 00:01:43.090 --> 00:01:44.180
  • WILLIAM, HIS PAPA.
  • 00:01:44.180 --> 00:01:46.090
  • WILLIAM LIVED WITH US
  • 00:01:46.090 --> 00:01:47.140
  • FOR THE LAST TWO YEARS
  • 00:01:47.140 --> 00:01:48.210
  • OF HIS LIFE.
  • 00:01:48.210 --> 00:01:50.080
  • WHEN WILLIAM DIED
  • 00:01:50.080 --> 00:01:51.150
  • CHRISTIAN WAS REALLY --
  • 00:01:51.150 --> 00:01:53.010
  • I MEAN HE WAS OVERWHELMED
  • 00:01:53.010 --> 00:01:54.120
  • WITH SADNESS, AS I EXPECTED.
  • 00:01:54.120 --> 00:01:55.180
  • HE CRIED FOR DAYS.
  • 00:01:55.180 --> 00:01:58.030
  • BUT THEN I WATCHED THAT GRIEF
  • 00:01:58.030 --> 00:01:59.160
  • MORPH INTO ANGER ONE DAY.
  • 00:01:59.160 --> 00:02:01.250
  • HE PUSHED OUR CAT,
  • 00:02:01.250 --> 00:02:03.190
  • HIS BELOVED PLAYMATE, LILLY,
  • 00:02:03.190 --> 00:02:04.280
  • OFF THE SOFA.
  • 00:02:04.280 --> 00:02:06.080
  • SO I ASKED HIM
  • 00:02:06.080 --> 00:02:07.110
  • TO GO FOR A WALK WITH ME.
  • 00:02:07.110 --> 00:02:08.220
  • OUTSIDE WE WALKED TOGETHER
  • 00:02:08.220 --> 00:02:10.150
  • DOWN TO THE LAKE
  • 00:02:10.150 --> 00:02:11.220
  • WHERE WE USED TO LIVE.
  • 00:02:11.220 --> 00:02:13.010
  • AFTER A WHILE I ASKED HIM
  • 00:02:13.010 --> 00:02:14.030
  • TO SIT DOWN BESIDE ME.
  • 00:02:14.030 --> 00:02:16.030
  • I ASKED HIM THIS QUESTION.
  • 00:02:16.030 --> 00:02:18.150
  • MAYBE YOU WOULDN'T MIND
  • 00:02:18.150 --> 00:02:20.010
  • IF I ASK IT OF YOU.
  • 00:02:20.010 --> 00:02:21.290
  • AND HE SAID, "YES."
  • 00:02:24.090 --> 00:02:26.250
  • WHEN I ASKED HIM WHY
  • 00:02:26.250 --> 00:02:28.020
  • HE SAID THIS,
  • 00:02:28.020 --> 00:02:29.060
  • THAT GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS
  • 00:02:30.140 --> 00:02:32.050
  • AND I PRAYED THAT GOD
  • 00:02:32.050 --> 00:02:33.130
  • WOULDN'T TAKE MY PAPA
  • 00:02:33.130 --> 00:02:34.210
  • BUT HE DID.
  • 00:02:34.210 --> 00:02:36.010
  • SO I'M NOT TALKING
  • 00:02:36.010 --> 00:02:37.080
  • TO GOD ANYMORE."
  • 00:02:37.080 --> 00:02:39.200
  • HAVE YOU EVER FELT LIKE THAT?
  • 00:02:39.200 --> 00:02:41.050
  • YOU'VE PRAYED
  • 00:02:41.050 --> 00:02:42.130
  • AND YOU'VE PRAYED
  • 00:02:42.130 --> 00:02:43.250
  • AND GOD DID NOT ANSWER
  • 00:02:43.250 --> 00:02:45.080
  • IN ANY WAY
  • 00:02:45.080 --> 00:02:46.140
  • THAT MADE SENSE TO YOU
  • 00:02:46.140 --> 00:02:47.210
  • SO YOU THINK,
  • 00:02:47.210 --> 00:02:48.240
  • WHAT'S THE POINT?
  • 00:02:48.240 --> 00:02:50.010
  • WELL, IT WAS THEN
  • 00:02:50.010 --> 00:02:51.090
  • THAT I TOLD MY SON
  • 00:02:51.090 --> 00:02:52.150
  • WHAT HONESTLY I WISH
  • 00:02:52.150 --> 00:02:53.230
  • SOMEONE HAD TOLD ME
  • 00:02:53.230 --> 00:02:54.270
  • WHEN I WAS A CHILD,
  • 00:02:54.270 --> 00:02:56.050
  • "IT'S OKAY TO BE ANGRY.
  • 00:02:56.050 --> 00:02:58.260
  • SOMETIMES IT'S ABSOLUTELY
  • 00:02:58.260 --> 00:03:00.130
  • RIGHT TO BE ANGRY.
  • 00:03:00.130 --> 00:03:02.050
  • GOD IS BIG ENOUGH
  • 00:03:02.050 --> 00:03:04.050
  • AND HE LOVES YOU ENOUGH
  • 00:03:04.050 --> 00:03:05.080
  • TO HANDLE EVERYTHING --
  • 00:03:05.080 --> 00:03:07.080
  • EVERYTHING YOU'RE FEELING."
  • 00:03:07.080 --> 00:03:09.100
  • I PUT MY ARM
  • 00:03:09.100 --> 00:03:10.140
  • AROUND CHRISTIAN'S SHOULDERS
  • 00:03:10.140 --> 00:03:11.190
  • AND I TOLD HIM THIS,
  • 00:03:11.190 --> 00:03:12.260
  • "TELL GOD EVERYTHING.
  • 00:03:12.260 --> 00:03:15.160
  • HE WON'T LEAVE YOU."
  • 00:03:15.160 --> 00:03:18.120
  • I THINK I'VE MAYBE
  • 00:03:18.120 --> 00:03:19.210
  • MENTIONED THIS BEFORE
  • 00:03:19.210 --> 00:03:20.260
  • BUT I REMEMBER
  • 00:03:20.260 --> 00:03:22.030
  • I BOUGHT SOME BOXING GLOVES
  • 00:03:22.030 --> 00:03:23.090
  • AND A PUNCHING BAG
  • 00:03:23.090 --> 00:03:24.150
  • AND I TOLD MY SON
  • 00:03:24.150 --> 00:03:25.190
  • TO HIT THAT THING UNTIL
  • 00:03:25.190 --> 00:03:26.230
  • HE HAD NOTHING LEFT INSIDE.
  • 00:03:26.230 --> 00:03:28.220
  • HE ALSO, AT THAT POINT,
  • 00:03:28.220 --> 00:03:30.180
  • HAD AN ALMOST
  • 00:03:30.180 --> 00:03:31.230
  • LIFE-SIZED STUFFED LION
  • 00:03:31.230 --> 00:03:33.190
  • THAT SOME FRIENDS OF MINE
  • 00:03:33.190 --> 00:03:34.290
  • HAD GIVEN HIM FOR A BIRTHDAY.
  • 00:03:34.290 --> 00:03:36.110
  • SO I TOLD HIM, "CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:03:36.110 --> 00:03:39.040
  • WHEN YOU HAVE POURED OUT
  • 00:03:39.040 --> 00:03:40.240
  • EVERYTHING YOU'RE FEELING
  • 00:03:40.240 --> 00:03:43.000
  • THEN YOU CAN BURY YOUR FACE
  • 00:03:43.000 --> 00:03:45.000
  • IN THE MANE
  • 00:03:45.000 --> 00:03:46.060
  • OF THE LION OF JUDAH."
  • 00:03:46.070 --> 00:03:49.070
  • YOU MIGHT THINK, WELL,
  • 00:03:49.070 --> 00:03:50.150
  • GREAT ADVICE BUT HONESTLY
  • 00:03:50.150 --> 00:03:51.190
  • IT TOOK ME A LONG TIME
  • 00:03:51.190 --> 00:03:52.230
  • TO KNOW HOW TO DO THAT MYSELF.
  • 00:03:52.230 --> 00:03:55.120
  • ON A PLATFORM
  • 00:03:57.240 --> 00:03:59.010
  • AND ENCOURAGED OTHERS
  • 00:03:59.010 --> 00:04:00.090
  • TO BE BRAVE AND TRUE,
  • 00:04:00.090 --> 00:04:01.240
  • TO POUR OUT THE CONTENTS
  • 00:04:01.240 --> 00:04:03.100
  • OF THEIR HEARTS
  • 00:04:03.100 --> 00:04:04.130
  • AND YET, I'VE STRUGGLED
  • 00:04:05.180 --> 00:04:06.260
  • WITH MY OWN FEELINGS.
  • 00:04:06.260 --> 00:04:09.020
  • I CAN'T TELL YOU
  • 00:04:09.020 --> 00:04:10.100
  • HOW OFTEN I'VE TURNED TO
  • 00:04:10.100 --> 00:04:11.160
  • THE PSALMIST DAVID FOR HELP.
  • 00:04:11.160 --> 00:04:14.090
  • THE AUTHENTIC CRIES
  • 00:04:14.090 --> 00:04:16.060
  • OF A SHEPHERD BOY
  • 00:04:16.060 --> 00:04:17.120
  • AND THEN A KING
  • 00:04:17.120 --> 00:04:18.180
  • HAVE HELPED ME GIVE WORDS
  • 00:04:18.180 --> 00:04:19.280
  • TO WHAT HAS HONESTLY AT TIMES
  • 00:04:19.280 --> 00:04:21.270
  • THERE WAS SOMETHING SO
  • 00:04:33.060 --> 00:04:34.170
  • INTIMATE ABOUT DAVID'S WORDS.
  • 00:04:34.220 --> 00:04:37.220
  • "HELP ME, LORD" HE PRAYED.
  • 00:04:37.220 --> 00:04:40.120
  • THOSE THREE LITTLE WORDS
  • 00:04:40.150 --> 00:04:43.150
  • CAN BE ONE OF THE MOST
  • 00:04:43.150 --> 00:04:45.090
  • POWERFUL PRAYERS.
  • 00:04:45.090 --> 00:04:47.010
  • HAVE YOU EVER PRAYED THAT
  • 00:04:47.010 --> 00:04:48.120
  • WHEN YOU DON'T KNOW
  • 00:04:48.120 --> 00:04:49.230
  • WHAT ELSE TO SAY?
  • 00:04:49.230 --> 00:04:51.000
  • JUST HELP ME, LORD!
  • 00:04:51.000 --> 00:04:53.150
  • YOUR PAIN AND YOUR HONESTY
  • 00:04:53.150 --> 00:04:56.120
  • AND PRAYER
  • 00:04:56.120 --> 00:04:57.210
  • WILL NOT LEAVE YOU ALONE.
  • 00:04:57.210 --> 00:04:59.100
  • IT WILL ACTUALLY DRAW YOU
  • 00:04:59.100 --> 00:05:01.020
  • CLOSE TO THE FATHER'S HEART.
  • 00:05:01.110 --> 00:05:04.110
  • CONFESSION IS
  • 00:05:04.110 --> 00:05:05.220
  • A DAILY PRACTICE FOR ME.
  • 00:05:05.220 --> 00:05:08.010
  • EACH MORNING,
  • 00:05:08.010 --> 00:05:09.100
  • ONCE I'VE GRABBED MY COFFEE,
  • 00:05:09.100 --> 00:05:10.240
  • I BEGIN MY DAY WITH GRATITUDE.
  • 00:05:10.240 --> 00:05:13.110
  • EVEN IF I DON'T FEEL
  • 00:05:13.110 --> 00:05:14.210
  • GRATEFUL, HONESTLY,
  • 00:05:14.210 --> 00:05:16.000
  • BECAUSE I KNOW
  • 00:05:16.000 --> 00:05:17.070
  • THAT GOD IS AMAZING.
  • 00:05:17.070 --> 00:05:18.220
  • SO I THANK GOD FOR HIS LOVE
  • 00:05:18.220 --> 00:05:20.220
  • THAT WELCOMES ME
  • 00:05:20.220 --> 00:05:22.010
  • TO COME AS I AM.
  • 00:05:22.010 --> 00:05:23.240
  • BUT THEN I CONFESS
  • 00:05:23.240 --> 00:05:25.110
  • WHAT I KNOW TO BE TRUE
  • 00:05:25.110 --> 00:05:26.290
  • NO MATTER
  • 00:05:26.290 --> 00:05:28.020
  • WHAT MIGHT FEEL TRUE.
  • 00:05:28.020 --> 00:05:29.160
  • I DON'T ALWAYS FEEL LOVED
  • 00:05:29.160 --> 00:05:31.130
  • BUT I KNOW I AM LOVED.
  • 00:05:31.130 --> 00:05:34.020
  • I DON'T ALWAYS FEEL
  • 00:05:34.020 --> 00:05:35.080
  • GOD'S PRESENCE
  • 00:05:35.080 --> 00:05:36.200
  • BUT I KNOW HE IS WITH ME.
  • 00:05:36.240 --> 00:05:39.240
  • I CONFESS MY WEAKNESS
  • 00:05:39.240 --> 00:05:41.290
  • AND MY FEAR.
  • 00:05:41.290 --> 00:05:43.050
  • I BRING EVERYTHING
  • 00:05:43.050 --> 00:05:44.130
  • I KNOW TO BE TRUE ABOUT ME
  • 00:05:44.130 --> 00:05:46.030
  • INTO THE OPEN ARMS
  • 00:05:46.030 --> 00:05:48.060
  • OF MY FATHER GOD.
  • 00:05:48.060 --> 00:05:50.110
  • ON THIS JOURNEY
  • 00:05:50.110 --> 00:05:52.010
  • I DEVELOPED SUCH
  • 00:05:52.010 --> 00:05:53.150
  • A HUNGER TO RETURN
  • 00:05:53.150 --> 00:05:55.000
  • TO THE STORIES I'VE KNOWN
  • 00:05:55.000 --> 00:05:56.170
  • SINCE I WAS A WEE GIRL
  • 00:05:56.170 --> 00:05:57.270
  • GROWING UP IN SCOTLAND.
  • 00:05:57.270 --> 00:05:59.090
  • I'VE READ THEM AGAIN BUT WITH
  • 00:05:59.090 --> 00:06:00.220
  • FRESH EYES AND UNSTOPPED EARS.
  • 00:06:01.260 --> 00:06:04.260
  • IF YOU'RE IN A PLACE
  • 00:06:04.260 --> 00:06:06.020
  • RIGHT NOW OF LOSS,
  • 00:06:06.020 --> 00:06:08.160
  • IF YOU'RE SUFFERING,
  • 00:06:08.160 --> 00:06:10.110
  • YOU MIGHT WANT TO SIT
  • 00:06:10.110 --> 00:06:12.000
  • WITH A BROTHER OF OURS.
  • 00:06:12.000 --> 00:06:13.210
  • HIS NAME IS JOB.
  • 00:06:13.210 --> 00:06:16.040
  • JOB WAS AN ABSOLUTE HERO
  • 00:06:16.040 --> 00:06:18.270
  • OF THE FAITH.
  • 00:06:18.270 --> 00:06:20.040
  • HE IS THE KIND OF MAN
  • 00:06:20.040 --> 00:06:21.110
  • YOU'D WANT YOUR DAUGHTER
  • 00:06:21.110 --> 00:06:22.150
  • DESPITE THAT BEING TRUE
  • 00:06:38.150 --> 00:06:40.110
  • ABOUT THIS SERVANT OF GOD,
  • 00:06:40.110 --> 00:06:42.140
  • GOD ALLOWED SATAN
  • 00:06:42.140 --> 00:06:44.030
  • TO BASICALLY RUIN JOB'S LIFE.
  • 00:06:44.030 --> 00:06:46.180
  • HIS SUFFERING WAS DEVASTATING.
  • 00:06:46.180 --> 00:06:48.280
  • HE LOST EVERYTHING.
  • 00:06:48.280 --> 00:06:51.170
  • THE MOST PAINFUL,
  • 00:06:51.170 --> 00:06:53.010
  • HE LOST HIS CHILDREN,
  • 00:06:53.010 --> 00:06:54.240
  • THEN HE LOST HIS LIVELIHOOD,
  • 00:06:54.240 --> 00:06:56.240
  • AND FINALLY HIS OWN HEALTH.
  • 00:06:56.240 --> 00:06:59.020
  • HIS ACUTE SUFFERING TOOK HIM
  • 00:06:59.020 --> 00:07:01.110
  • TO THE VERY EDGE OF SANITY.
  • 00:07:01.110 --> 00:07:03.050
  • AS HIS STORY GREW
  • 00:07:31.140 --> 00:07:32.220
  • WORSE AND WORSE
  • 00:07:32.220 --> 00:07:34.170
  • I FOUND MYSELF PRAYING,
  • 00:07:34.170 --> 00:07:35.260
  • LORD, PLEASE SEND
  • 00:07:35.260 --> 00:07:37.040
  • THIS POOR MAN SOME HELP!
  • 00:07:37.040 --> 00:07:38.150
  • LET HIS FRIENDS GATHER
  • 00:07:38.150 --> 00:07:40.120
  • AROUND HIM AND CARRY HIM
  • 00:07:40.120 --> 00:07:42.130
  • BECAUSE HE CLEARLY
  • 00:07:42.130 --> 00:07:43.230
  • CAN'T EVEN STAND ANYMORE.
  • 00:07:43.230 --> 00:07:45.120
  • THEN YOU MEET HIS FRIENDS
  • 00:07:45.120 --> 00:07:48.030
  • AND IT JUST GETS WORSE.
  • 00:07:48.030 --> 00:07:50.180
  • I PRAY YOU DON'T HAVE
  • 00:07:50.180 --> 00:07:51.270
  • FRIENDS LIKE THIS
  • 00:07:51.270 --> 00:07:53.040
  • BUT I THINK
  • 00:07:53.040 --> 00:07:54.130
  • PROBABLY SOME OF US DO.
  • 00:07:54.130 --> 00:07:55.220
  • FRIEND NUMBER ONE,
  • 00:07:55.220 --> 00:07:56.290
  • ELIPHAZ THE TEMANITE.
  • 00:07:56.290 --> 00:07:58.040
  • IN OTHER WORDS,
  • 00:08:12.190 --> 00:08:13.280
  • HE'S SAYING TO HIM,
  • 00:08:13.280 --> 00:08:15.100
  • "YOU BROUGHT THIS
  • 00:08:15.100 --> 00:08:16.170
  • ON YOURSELF JOB."
  • 00:08:16.170 --> 00:08:17.260
  • ELIPHAZ'S LOGIC
  • 00:08:17.260 --> 00:08:19.020
  • READS A LITTLE LIKE THIS:
  • 00:08:19.020 --> 00:08:20.060
  • GOD IS GOOD,
  • 00:08:20.060 --> 00:08:21.150
  • YOU ARE SUFFERING,
  • 00:08:21.150 --> 00:08:22.290
  • THEREFORE YOU MUST HAVE DONE
  • 00:08:22.290 --> 00:08:24.130
  • SOMETHING WRONG.
  • 00:08:24.130 --> 00:08:25.280
  • THAT KIND OF THEOLOGY
  • 00:08:25.280 --> 00:08:27.280
  • LEAVES NO ROOM FOR MYSTERY
  • 00:08:27.280 --> 00:08:30.230
  • OR FOR GRACE AND MERCY.
  • 00:08:30.230 --> 00:08:33.100
  • INSTEAD, THIS KIND
  • 00:08:33.100 --> 00:08:34.190
  • OF THEOLOGY IS PUNISHING.
  • 00:08:34.190 --> 00:08:36.130
  • IF YOU'VE EVER BEEN A VICTIM
  • 00:08:36.130 --> 00:08:37.220
  • OF THAT, I'M SO SORRY.
  • 00:08:37.220 --> 00:08:39.260
  • WELL, THEN WE MEET FRIEND TWO,
  • 00:08:39.260 --> 00:08:42.050
  • BILDAD THE SHUHITE.
  • 00:08:42.050 --> 00:08:44.010
  • KNOWING JOB'S CHILDREN
  • 00:08:44.010 --> 00:08:45.080
  • HAVE ALL BEEN KILLED
  • 00:08:45.080 --> 00:08:46.100
  • IN A TRAGIC ACCIDENT
  • 00:08:46.100 --> 00:08:47.260
  • I MEAN THESE WORDS
  • 00:09:04.280 --> 00:09:06.260
  • ARE THE ANCIENT EQUIVALENT
  • 00:09:06.260 --> 00:09:08.140
  • OF TELLING PARENTS
  • 00:09:08.140 --> 00:09:09.220
  • WHO JUST LOST THEIR CHILDREN
  • 00:09:09.220 --> 00:09:10.260
  • IN A CAR WRECK,
  • 00:09:10.260 --> 00:09:11.260
  • "WELL, THEY SHOULDN'T
  • 00:09:11.260 --> 00:09:13.050
  • HAVE BEEN DRINKING."
  • 00:09:13.050 --> 00:09:14.250
  • PERHAPS THAT'S TRUE BUT
  • 00:09:14.250 --> 00:09:16.160
  • IT DOESN'T MAKE THOSE WORDS
  • 00:09:16.160 --> 00:09:18.020
  • ANY LESS CRUEL.
  • 00:09:18.020 --> 00:09:21.000
  • THEN COMES FRIEND NUMBER
  • 00:09:21.000 --> 00:09:22.210
  • THE IMPLICATION AGAIN,
  • 00:09:51.150 --> 00:09:53.030
  • JOB'S FAMILY AND JOB HIMSELF
  • 00:09:53.030 --> 00:09:54.260
  • MUST HAVE BEEN WICKED.
  • 00:09:54.260 --> 00:09:56.210
  • AS I READ THROUGH HIS STORY
  • 00:09:56.210 --> 00:09:58.280
  • THESE SELF-RIGHTEOUS FRIENDS
  • 00:10:00.140 --> 00:10:02.020
  • WHOSE WORDS WERE MANY
  • 00:10:02.020 --> 00:10:04.030
  • AND WHOSE COMFORT
  • 00:10:04.030 --> 00:10:05.240
  • WAS NONEXISTENT.
  • 00:10:05.240 --> 00:10:07.170
  • THEY FELT SOMEHOW COMPELLED
  • 00:10:07.170 --> 00:10:09.270
  • TO EXPLAIN GOD
  • 00:10:09.270 --> 00:10:11.250
  • AND SUFFERING AND PAIN
  • 00:10:11.250 --> 00:10:13.220
  • AND TIE EVERYTHING UP
  • 00:10:13.220 --> 00:10:15.130
  • WITH A NICE LITTLE FAITH BOW.
  • 00:10:16.130 --> 00:10:19.130
  • THEY DETERMINED THAT
  • 00:10:19.130 --> 00:10:20.230
  • IF JOB IS SUFFERING
  • 00:10:20.230 --> 00:10:21.290
  • IT MUST HAVE BEEN CAUSED
  • 00:10:21.290 --> 00:10:23.070
  • BY SOMETHING HE'S DONE,
  • 00:10:23.070 --> 00:10:24.150
  • SOMETHING HIS CHILDREN
  • 00:10:24.150 --> 00:10:25.220
  • HAVE DONE OR SOME
  • 00:10:25.220 --> 00:10:27.020
  • HIDDEN SIN IN HIS PAST.
  • 00:10:27.020 --> 00:10:29.030
  • BACK AND FORTH THEY ARGUE
  • 00:10:29.030 --> 00:10:31.250
  • WITH THIS DEVASTATED MAN.
  • 00:10:31.250 --> 00:10:34.250
  • WELL, JOB CRIES OUT
  • 00:10:34.250 --> 00:10:37.150
  • BUT HE CRIES OUT AGAINST GOD.
  • 00:10:37.200 --> 00:10:40.200
  • PRETTY STRONG WORDS.
  • 00:10:40.200 --> 00:10:41.200
  • HAVE YOU EVER FELT THAT WAY?
  • 00:10:55.160 --> 00:10:58.030
  • HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN A PLACE
  • 00:10:58.030 --> 00:10:59.130
  • WHERE IT'S JUST ONE THING
  • 00:10:59.130 --> 00:11:01.000
  • AFTER ANOTHER AFTER ANOTHER
  • 00:11:01.000 --> 00:11:03.110
  • AND YOU JUST WANT TO CRY,
  • 00:11:03.110 --> 00:11:04.180
  • "LORD, ENOUGH!"
  • 00:11:04.180 --> 00:11:07.090
  • THE LAST FEW CHAPTERS
  • 00:11:07.090 --> 00:11:08.270
  • OF THE BOOK OF JOB
  • 00:11:08.270 --> 00:11:10.130
  • ARE STAGGERING.
  • 00:11:10.130 --> 00:11:12.080
  • JOB IS GUT LEVEL HONEST
  • 00:11:12.080 --> 00:11:14.200
  • WITH GOD.
  • 00:11:14.200 --> 00:11:16.010
  • HE EXPRESSES RAGE AND TERROR
  • 00:11:16.010 --> 00:11:18.100
  • PEPPERED BY MOMENTS
  • 00:11:18.100 --> 00:11:20.050
  • YOU WILL REMEMBER
  • 00:11:22.000 --> 00:11:23.110
  • THAT HE SAYS, "I KNOW
  • 00:11:23.110 --> 00:11:24.230
  • THAT MY REDEEMER LIVETH."
  • 00:11:24.230 --> 00:11:26.020
  • HE ALSO SAYS, "YET THOUGH
  • 00:11:26.020 --> 00:11:27.120
  • BUT THE REST OF THE CHAPTERS
  • 00:11:29.150 --> 00:11:31.090
  • ARE FULL OF HIS ANGER
  • 00:11:31.090 --> 00:11:33.050
  • AND FEAR, AND WISHING
  • 00:11:33.050 --> 00:11:35.010
  • HE HAD NEVER BEEN BORN.
  • 00:11:35.010 --> 00:11:36.230
  • BUT WHAT I WANT YOU TO SEE
  • 00:11:36.230 --> 00:11:38.000
  • IS THIS, HOW GOD RESPONDS
  • 00:11:38.000 --> 00:11:40.110
  • TO THAT VERY
  • 00:11:40.110 --> 00:11:41.260
  • AUTHENTIC CONFESSION.
  • 00:11:41.260 --> 00:11:44.090
  • HE GIVES JOB
  • 00:11:44.090 --> 00:11:45.220
  • HIS VERY PRESENCE.
  • 00:11:45.220 --> 00:11:48.030
  • GOD REVEALS HIMSELF TO JOB.
  • 00:11:48.030 --> 00:11:50.170
  • HE DOESN'T ACTUALLY ANSWER
  • 00:11:50.170 --> 00:11:52.000
  • ANY OF JOB'S QUESTIONS.
  • 00:11:52.000 --> 00:11:54.180
  • INSTEAD, HE GIVES HIM A GIFT
  • 00:11:54.240 --> 00:11:57.240
  • FAR MORE PRECIOUS
  • 00:11:57.240 --> 00:11:59.040
  • THAN MERE ANSWERS.
  • 00:11:59.040 --> 00:12:01.180
  • HE GIVES JOB HIMSELF.
  • 00:12:01.180 --> 00:12:04.150
  • HE PULLS BACK
  • 00:12:04.150 --> 00:12:05.240
  • THE CURTAIN A LITTLE
  • 00:12:05.240 --> 00:12:07.020
  • AND SHOWS JOB,
  • 00:12:07.020 --> 00:12:08.150
  • THERE'S A LOT MORE GOING ON
  • 00:12:08.150 --> 00:12:09.200
  • THAN HE CAN EVEN BEGIN
  • 00:12:09.200 --> 00:12:11.010
  • TO WRAP HIS MIND
  • 00:12:11.010 --> 00:12:12.130
  • OR HIS BROKEN HEART AROUND.
  • 00:12:12.130 --> 00:12:14.220
  • GOD REVEALS HIMSELF
  • 00:12:14.220 --> 00:12:16.170
  • IN GREATER DEPTH
  • 00:12:16.170 --> 00:12:18.170
  • AND GIVES JOB
  • 00:12:18.170 --> 00:12:20.140
  • THE GIFT OF HIS OWN PRESENCE.
  • 00:12:20.170 --> 00:12:23.170
  • SO WAS GOD OFFENDED
  • 00:12:23.170 --> 00:12:25.170
  • BY THE RAW OUTPOURING
  • 00:12:25.170 --> 00:12:27.000
  • OF A BROKEN HEART?
  • 00:12:27.000 --> 00:12:28.130
  • FAR FROM IT!
  • 00:12:28.130 --> 00:12:30.080
  • IT IS INTERESTING TO NOTE,
  • 00:12:30.080 --> 00:12:31.180
  • THE ONLY ONES
  • 00:12:31.180 --> 00:12:32.260
  • THAT GOD WAS ANGRY WITH
  • 00:12:32.260 --> 00:12:34.050
  • WERE THE FRIENDS
  • 00:12:34.050 --> 00:12:35.150
  • WHO TRIED TO SHUT HIM UP.
  • 00:12:35.150 --> 00:12:37.130
  • WOW!
  • 00:12:56.230 --> 00:12:58.100
  • "YOU HAVE NOT SPOKEN
  • 00:12:58.100 --> 00:12:59.180
  • ACCURATELY ABOUT ME
  • 00:12:59.180 --> 00:13:00.280
  • THAT IS A GAME CHANGER
  • 00:13:02.060 --> 00:13:03.160
  • RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:13:03.160 --> 00:13:06.000
  • JOB WAS FURIOUS.
  • 00:13:06.000 --> 00:13:08.210
  • HE WAS BROKEN.
  • 00:13:10.020 --> 00:13:11.120
  • HE HATED HIS LIFE.
  • 00:13:11.120 --> 00:13:12.220
  • HE PRAYED TO DIE.
  • 00:13:12.220 --> 00:13:14.010
  • AND THE RAW AUTHENTIC TRUTH
  • 00:13:14.010 --> 00:13:16.060
  • THAT POURED OUT OF HIS SOUL
  • 00:13:16.060 --> 00:13:18.150
  • INVITED THE VERY PRESENCE
  • 00:13:18.150 --> 00:13:20.270
  • JOB SPOKE TRUTH.
  • 00:13:23.140 --> 00:13:24.250
  • IS NOT ALL HUMAN LIFE
  • 00:13:24.250 --> 00:13:26.080
  • IN FACT,
  • 00:13:27.190 --> 00:13:28.280
  • EVERY TIME JOB SPOKE UP
  • 00:13:28.280 --> 00:13:30.100
  • HIS FRIENDS TRIED
  • 00:13:30.100 --> 00:13:31.180
  • TO SILENCE HIM
  • 00:13:31.180 --> 00:13:33.050
  • BUT HE CRIED OUT EVEN LOUDER.
  • 00:13:33.050 --> 00:13:34.220
  • AND IT WAS THAT TRUTH,
  • 00:13:34.220 --> 00:13:36.230
  • THAT PRESSING IN
  • 00:13:36.230 --> 00:13:37.260
  • INTO THE PRESENCE OF GOD
  • 00:13:37.260 --> 00:13:40.130
  • THAT INVITED THE LOVE OF GOD.
  • 00:13:41.000 --> 00:13:44.000
  • THERE'S SOMETHING
  • 00:13:44.000 --> 00:13:45.250
  • SO IMPORTANT HERE,
  • 00:13:45.250 --> 00:13:47.090
  • RAW HONEST PAIN OFFERED TO GOD
  • 00:13:47.200 --> 00:13:50.200
  • BRINGS US CLOSER TO HIS HEART.
  • 00:13:50.200 --> 00:13:53.090
  • GOD RECEIVED EVERYTHING
  • 00:13:53.090 --> 00:13:55.110
  • JOB SAID.
  • 00:13:55.110 --> 00:13:56.220
  • HE WELCOMED THE BRUTAL, REAL
  • 00:13:56.220 --> 00:13:58.230
  • AGONY OF ONE WHO BELIEVED
  • 00:13:58.230 --> 00:14:00.230
  • GOD WAS BIG ENOUGH
  • 00:14:00.230 --> 00:14:02.060
  • TO HEAR HIM OUT
  • 00:14:02.060 --> 00:14:03.170
  • AND NOT SILENCE HIM
  • 00:14:03.170 --> 00:14:04.280
  • INTO SHAME AND HIDING.
  • 00:14:04.280 --> 00:14:07.080
  • THIS TRUTH FOR YOU AND ME,
  • 00:14:07.080 --> 00:14:10.020
  • SPEAKING OUR HONEST
  • 00:14:10.020 --> 00:14:11.130
  • AND RAW PAIN
  • 00:14:11.130 --> 00:14:12.230
  • DRAWS GOD'S PRESENCE.
  • 00:14:12.230 --> 00:14:14.210
  • WE CAN ACTUALLY SEE THIS
  • 00:14:14.210 --> 00:14:16.280
  • IN THE LIFE OF JESUS TOO.
  • 00:14:17.030 --> 00:14:20.030
  • MARK'S GOSPEL,
  • 00:14:20.030 --> 00:14:21.120
  • IF YOU EVER START
  • 00:14:21.120 --> 00:14:22.210
  • IN THE BEGINNING
  • 00:14:22.210 --> 00:14:23.280
  • OF MARK'S GOSPEL, IT'S GOT
  • 00:14:23.280 --> 00:14:25.070
  • A DEFINITE RHYTHM TO IT.
  • 00:14:25.070 --> 00:14:26.130
  • IF YOU READ IT STRAIGHT
  • 00:14:26.130 --> 00:14:27.200
  • THROUGH YOU CAN FEEL
  • 00:14:27.200 --> 00:14:28.290
  • THE PACE PICKING UP
  • 00:14:28.290 --> 00:14:30.060
  • AS CHRIST FINALLY SETS
  • 00:14:30.060 --> 00:14:31.170
  • HIS FACE TOWARD JERUSALEM
  • 00:14:31.170 --> 00:14:32.230
  • AND THE CROSS.
  • 00:14:32.230 --> 00:14:34.240
  • THERE'S A CLOCK TICKING.
  • 00:14:34.240 --> 00:14:36.210
  • BUT ON THE WAY TO JERUSALEM,
  • 00:14:36.210 --> 00:14:38.260
  • ON THE WAY TO CALVARY
  • 00:14:38.260 --> 00:14:40.070
  • JESUS TRIES ONCE MORE
  • 00:14:40.070 --> 00:14:42.060
  • FOCUSED.
  • 00:15:02.090 --> 00:15:04.030
  • JESUS BRACES
  • 00:15:04.030 --> 00:15:05.200
  • FOR THE BETRAYAL AND AGONY
  • 00:15:05.200 --> 00:15:07.010
  • THAT LIES AHEAD
  • 00:15:07.010 --> 00:15:08.190
  • BUT SUDDENLY THERE IS A CRY.
  • 00:15:08.190 --> 00:15:11.060
  • CHRIST HEARD
  • 00:15:11.060 --> 00:15:12.170
  • ABOVE THE NOISY CROWD.
  • 00:15:12.170 --> 00:15:14.260
  • IT ARISES FROM A BLIND BEGGAR
  • 00:15:14.260 --> 00:15:17.130
  • THIS WAS HIS CRY,
  • 00:15:19.100 --> 00:15:21.000
  • "JESUS! SON OF DAVID,
  • 00:15:21.000 --> 00:15:23.160
  • HAVE MERCY ON ME."
  • 00:15:23.160 --> 00:15:26.140
  • THE PEOPLE IN THE CROWD
  • 00:15:26.140 --> 00:15:28.000
  • YELLED OUT, "BE QUIET!"
  • 00:15:28.000 --> 00:15:29.290
  • "SON OF DAVID,
  • 00:15:32.040 --> 00:15:33.290
  • HAVE MERCY ON ME!"
  • 00:15:33.290 --> 00:15:36.100
  • WHEN JESUS HEARS BARTIMAEUS
  • 00:15:36.160 --> 00:15:39.160
  • HE STOPS.
  • 00:15:39.160 --> 00:15:41.080
  • IGNORING THOSE
  • 00:15:41.080 --> 00:15:42.130
  • WHO TOLD THE POOR BEGGAR
  • 00:15:42.130 --> 00:15:43.160
  • TO STOP CRYING OUT
  • 00:15:43.160 --> 00:15:44.190
  • TO THE SON OF GOD,
  • 00:15:44.190 --> 00:15:46.000
  • JESUS INSTRUCTS BARTIMAEUS
  • 00:15:46.000 --> 00:15:48.190
  • TO COME TO HIM.
  • 00:15:48.190 --> 00:15:50.250
  • THEN HE ASKS
  • 00:15:50.250 --> 00:15:52.070
  • THIS BEAUTIFUL QUESTION,
  • 00:15:52.070 --> 00:15:53.240
  • "WHAT DO YOU WANT ME
  • 00:15:53.240 --> 00:15:55.040
  • TO DO FOR YOU?"
  • 00:15:55.040 --> 00:15:56.180
  • JESUS ASKS.
  • 00:15:56.180 --> 00:15:58.090
  • BARTIMAEUS RESPONDS,
  • 00:15:58.090 --> 00:15:59.280
  • "I WANT TO SEE."
  • 00:15:59.280 --> 00:16:01.280
  • AND JESUS RESPONDS
  • 00:16:01.280 --> 00:16:03.160
  • BY HEALING BARTIMAEUS.
  • 00:16:03.160 --> 00:16:06.040
  • THINK ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:16:06.040 --> 00:16:07.220
  • ON HIS WAY TO THE CROSS
  • 00:16:07.220 --> 00:16:10.130
  • JESUS PAUSED
  • 00:16:10.130 --> 00:16:12.090
  • TO LISTEN TO ONE MAN.
  • 00:16:13.040 --> 00:16:16.040
  • TO AN EXECUTION, TO THE GRAVE,
  • 00:16:17.240 --> 00:16:20.240
  • TO THE RESURRECTION
  • 00:16:20.240 --> 00:16:22.170
  • BUT HE STOPPED
  • 00:16:22.170 --> 00:16:24.050
  • BARTIMAEUS FOLLOWED JESUS
  • 00:16:28.120 --> 00:16:29.290
  • AFTER THAT.
  • 00:16:29.290 --> 00:16:31.150
  • HE WAS AT THE CROSS.
  • 00:16:31.150 --> 00:16:32.290
  • HE WAS THERE
  • 00:16:32.290 --> 00:16:34.070
  • AFTER THE RESURRECTION.
  • 00:16:34.070 --> 00:16:35.220
  • CHURCH HISTORY TELLS US
  • 00:16:35.220 --> 00:16:37.030
  • BARTIMAEUS BECAME PART
  • 00:16:37.030 --> 00:16:38.190
  • OF THE EARLY CHURCH.
  • 00:16:38.190 --> 00:16:40.220
  • BUT HIS RELATIONSHIP BEGAN
  • 00:16:40.240 --> 00:16:43.240
  • BY CRYING OUT HIS NEED
  • 00:16:43.240 --> 00:16:46.070
  • EVEN WHEN EVERYONE AROUND HIM
  • 00:16:46.070 --> 00:16:47.270
  • TOLD HIM TO BE QUIET.
  • 00:16:48.250 --> 00:16:51.250
  • WHATEVER YOU'RE FACING TODAY,
  • 00:16:52.060 --> 00:16:55.060
  • TELL GOD THE TRUTH.
  • 00:16:55.060 --> 00:16:56.290
  • HE KNOWS IT.
  • 00:16:56.290 --> 00:16:58.170
  • BUT YOU NEED TO GET IT OUT.
  • 00:16:58.170 --> 00:17:00.120
  • YOUR HONEST GRIEF AND PAIN
  • 00:17:00.120 --> 00:17:03.090
  • DRAWS THE HEART
  • 00:17:03.090 --> 00:17:04.180
  • I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'VE
  • 00:17:32.260 --> 00:17:34.140
  • ENCOUNTERED FRIENDS
  • 00:17:34.140 --> 00:17:36.040
  • LIKE JOB'S FRIENDS
  • 00:17:36.040 --> 00:17:37.250
  • WHERE PEOPLE PERHAPS
  • 00:17:37.250 --> 00:17:39.090
  • HAVE TOLD YOU
  • 00:17:39.090 --> 00:17:40.180
  • THAT THE SITUATION YOU'RE IN
  • 00:17:40.180 --> 00:17:41.260
  • IS BECAUSE
  • 00:17:41.260 --> 00:17:43.090
  • OF SOMETHING YOU DID OR
  • 00:17:43.090 --> 00:17:44.200
  • SOMETHING YOUR CHILDREN DID.
  • 00:17:44.200 --> 00:17:45.290
  • I WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT IS
  • 00:17:45.290 --> 00:17:47.110
  • REMEMBER WHAT ROMANS
  • 00:17:48.240 --> 00:17:50.050
  • I LOVE THE FACT
  • 00:17:57.190 --> 00:17:59.100
  • THAT JOB'S BITTER HARSH WORDS
  • 00:18:00.140 --> 00:18:03.140
  • ARE INCLUDED
  • 00:18:03.140 --> 00:18:04.270
  • IN HOLY SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:18:04.270 --> 00:18:06.050
  • AND THEN AT THE END
  • 00:18:06.050 --> 00:18:07.130
  • WE GET THIS KIND OF
  • 00:18:07.130 --> 00:18:09.080
  • LIFE-ALTERING TRUTH
  • 00:18:09.080 --> 00:18:11.000
  • THAT THE ONLY PERSON
  • 00:18:11.000 --> 00:18:12.200
  • THAT GOD CONSIDERED
  • 00:18:12.200 --> 00:18:14.010
  • TOLD THE TRUTH WAS JOB.
  • 00:18:14.010 --> 00:18:16.180
  • IN FACT, HE SAID TO JOB,
  • 00:18:16.180 --> 00:18:18.030
  • "YOU BETTER PRAY
  • 00:18:18.030 --> 00:18:19.110
  • FOR YOUR FRIENDS
  • 00:18:19.110 --> 00:18:20.170
  • BECAUSE OTHERWISE
  • 00:18:20.170 --> 00:18:21.270
  • I'M GOING TO WIPE THEM OUT."
  • 00:18:21.270 --> 00:18:23.080
  • THERE IS SUCH AN INVITATION
  • 00:18:23.080 --> 00:18:24.210
  • TO LIVE AUTHENTICALLY
  • 00:18:24.210 --> 00:18:26.060
  • WITH JESUS.
  • 00:18:26.060 --> 00:18:27.150
  • SOMETIMES I THINK IN THE
  • 00:18:27.150 --> 00:18:28.230
  • CHURCH WE'VE GOT SO "NICE"
  • 00:18:28.230 --> 00:18:30.030
  • ABOUT OUR FAITH AND YOU KNOW
  • 00:18:30.030 --> 00:18:31.250
  • YOU'VE HAD AN ARGUMENT WITH
  • 00:18:31.250 --> 00:18:33.140
  • YOUR HUSBAND OR YOUR WIFE
  • 00:18:33.140 --> 00:18:34.290
  • ON THE WAY TO CHURCH;
  • 00:18:34.290 --> 00:18:36.100
  • YOU CALLED THEM THINGS THAT
  • 00:18:36.100 --> 00:18:37.250
  • ARE NOT IN THE NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 00:18:37.250 --> 00:18:39.040
  • THEY MAY HAVE BEEN IN THE OLD
  • 00:18:39.040 --> 00:18:40.110
  • BUT THEY DIDN'T MAKE IT
  • 00:18:40.110 --> 00:18:41.210
  • INTO THE NEW.
  • 00:18:41.210 --> 00:18:43.010
  • AND YOU WALK THROUGH THE
  • 00:18:43.010 --> 00:18:44.150
  • CHURCH DOORS AND THE GREETER
  • 00:18:44.150 --> 00:18:45.230
  • SAYS, "HEY! HOW ARE YOU?"
  • 00:18:45.230 --> 00:18:47.030
  • AND YOU'RE LIKE,
  • 00:18:47.030 --> 00:18:48.060
  • "OH I'M SO CLOSE TO JESUS
  • 00:18:48.060 --> 00:18:49.140
  • I'M NEARLY FLYING."
  • 00:18:49.140 --> 00:18:50.240
  • PRETENDING
  • 00:18:50.240 --> 00:18:52.030
  • IS NOT AUTHENTIC FAITH.
  • 00:18:52.030 --> 00:18:53.140
  • GOD INVITES TRANSPARENCY.
  • 00:18:53.150 --> 00:18:56.150
  • YOU GET TO COME AS YOU ARE.
  • 00:18:56.150 --> 00:18:58.120
  • BUT THE AMAZING THING IS
  • 00:18:58.120 --> 00:18:59.270
  • WHEN YOU COME AS YOU ARE,
  • 00:18:59.270 --> 00:19:01.260
  • GOD DOESN'T
  • 00:19:01.260 --> 00:19:03.060
  • LEAVE YOU THAT WAY.
  • 00:19:03.060 --> 00:19:04.160
  • SOMEHOW HIS LOVE
  • 00:19:04.160 --> 00:19:05.260
  • CHANGES EVERYTHING.
  • 00:19:05.280 --> 00:19:08.280
  • ONE OF THE THINGS
  • 00:19:08.280 --> 00:19:10.240
  • THAT I'M MOST GRATEFUL FOR
  • 00:19:10.240 --> 00:19:12.210
  • ABOUT BEING PART OF THE
