  • Announcer: DO YOU TRUST GOD
  • 00:00:06.070 --> 00:00:08.090
  • EVEN WHEN THE REALITY OF HEARTACHE SETS IN?
  • 00:00:08.120 --> 00:00:11.040
  • Sheila: SOME OF YOU ARE FACING HEARTACHE
  • 00:00:11.070 --> 00:00:13.110
  • THAT HAS GONE ON FOR A LONG, LONG TIME.
  • 00:00:13.140 --> 00:00:17.100
  • ARE YOU ABLE TO TAKE THAT PAIN TO GOD?
  • 00:00:17.130 --> 00:00:21.000
  • SEE THE HARD THING IS WE THINK ON ONE HAND,
  • 00:00:21.030 --> 00:00:23.180
  • WELL, BUT GOD CAN TAKE THE PAIN AWAY,
  • 00:00:23.210 --> 00:00:26.060
  • HE CAN ANSWER THE PRAYER.
  • 00:00:26.090 --> 00:00:28.180
  • BUT ARE YOU STILL WILLING TO TAKE THAT PAIN
  • 00:00:28.210 --> 00:00:31.180
  • AND THAT PRAYER TO HIM?
  • 00:00:31.210 --> 00:00:33.180
  • Announcer: SHEILA WALSH NEXT!
  • 00:00:33.210 --> 00:00:36.010
  • 00:00:39.090 --> 00:00:46.060
  • Sheila: HI! I'M SHEILA WALSH.
  • 00:00:54.040 --> 00:00:57.040
  • WELCOME TO LIFE TODAY .
  • 00:00:57.040 --> 00:00:58.190
  • I'M SO GLAD THAT YOU JOIN ME.
  • 00:00:58.190 --> 00:01:00.110
  • I WAS PUTTING A QUESTION OUT
  • 00:01:00.110 --> 00:01:02.120
  • AND I ASKED, WHAT ARE
  • 00:01:03.260 --> 00:01:05.110
  • THE THINGS THAT WOULD
  • 00:01:05.110 --> 00:01:06.170
  • MAKE YOU EITHER WANT TO PRAY
  • 00:01:06.170 --> 00:01:08.070
  • OR WOULD HOLD YOU BACK
  • 00:01:08.070 --> 00:01:09.220
  • FROM PRAYING?
  • 00:01:09.220 --> 00:01:11.140
  • AND WITHIN LIKE 30 MINUTES
  • 00:01:11.140 --> 00:01:12.190
  • I HAD LIKE 500 DIFFERENT
  • 00:01:12.190 --> 00:01:13.280
  • COMMENTS.
  • 00:01:13.280 --> 00:01:15.080
  • AND IF YOU'RE ONE OF THEM,
  • 00:01:15.080 --> 00:01:16.130
  • THANK YOU.
  • 00:01:16.130 --> 00:01:17.160
  • I READ EVERY SINGLE ONE.
  • 00:01:17.160 --> 00:01:18.210
  • AND I HAVE TO TELL YOU
  • 00:01:18.210 --> 00:01:19.250
  • THAT FOR SEVERAL OF THEM,
  • 00:01:19.250 --> 00:01:21.160
  • I PAUSED AND PRAYED FOR YOU
  • 00:01:21.160 --> 00:01:23.170
  • BECAUSE SOME OF YOU ARE
  • 00:01:23.170 --> 00:01:24.230
  • GOING THROUGH SOME REALLY
  • 00:01:24.230 --> 00:01:26.040
  • TOUGH THINGS RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:01:26.140 --> 00:01:29.140
  • THE WORD HEARTBROKEN IS
  • 00:01:29.140 --> 00:01:30.260
  • A WORD THAT WE USE A LOT
  • 00:01:30.260 --> 00:01:32.290
  • I THINK WE OVERUSE IT.
  • 00:01:34.140 --> 00:01:37.020
  • WE OFTEN ASSOCIATE IT
  • 00:01:37.020 --> 00:01:38.160
  • WITH LIKE HALLMARK MOVIES
  • 00:01:38.160 --> 00:01:40.250
  • AT ITS VERY ROOT
  • 00:01:42.270 --> 00:01:45.000
  • THE DEFINITION OF HEARTBREAK
  • 00:01:45.020 --> 00:01:48.020
  • ACTUALLY ADDRESSES THE KIND
  • 00:01:48.020 --> 00:01:49.140
  • OF UNIMAGINABLE LOSS,
  • 00:01:49.140 --> 00:01:51.220
  • THE KIND THAT IS HARD
  • 00:01:51.220 --> 00:01:53.010
  • TO EVEN PUT INTO WORDS.
  • 00:01:53.010 --> 00:01:54.170
  • THE MIRIAM WEBSTER,
  • 00:01:54.170 --> 00:01:55.270
  • ORIGINAL WAY-BACK DICTIONARY,
  • 00:01:55.270 --> 00:01:57.050
  • DEFINES HEARTBREAK THIS WAY:
  • 00:01:57.050 --> 00:01:59.040
  • OVERCOME BY SORROW.
  • 00:01:59.240 --> 00:02:02.260
  • I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW
  • 00:02:02.260 --> 00:02:04.060
  • THE BIBLE IS BRUTALLY HONEST
  • 00:02:04.060 --> 00:02:06.080
  • ABOUT THE REALITY
  • 00:02:06.080 --> 00:02:07.250
  • OF HEARTBREAK.
  • 00:02:07.250 --> 00:02:09.120
  • A SCRIPTURE LIKE THIS.
  • 00:02:09.120 --> 00:02:10.290
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE
  • 00:02:26.110 --> 00:02:27.150
  • WHAT THAT MUST BE LIKE?
  • 00:02:27.150 --> 00:02:28.230
  • FEELING AS IF LIFE IS GOING ON
  • 00:02:28.230 --> 00:02:29.270
  • ALL AROUND YOU AND YOU'RE
  • 00:02:29.270 --> 00:02:31.080
  • CRYING OUT FOR HELP BUT
  • 00:02:31.080 --> 00:02:33.060
  • NOBODY SEEMS TO NOTICE YOU.
  • 00:02:33.060 --> 00:02:35.120
  • THERE IS A QUOTE I READ
  • 00:02:56.210 --> 00:02:58.050
  • THE OTHER NIGHT FROM
  • 00:02:58.050 --> 00:02:59.090
  • AN AUTHOR I LIKE CALLED
  • 00:02:59.090 --> 00:03:00.180
  • GABRIEL GARCIA MARQUEZ.
  • 00:03:00.180 --> 00:03:03.000
  • HE SAID THIS WHEN HE WAS
  • 00:03:03.000 --> 00:03:04.060
  • SO AS I WAS GETTING READY
  • 00:03:18.160 --> 00:03:19.290
  • FOR TODAY'S SHOW I FOUND
  • 00:03:19.290 --> 00:03:21.150
  • MYSELF PRAYING FOR YOU.
  • 00:03:21.150 --> 00:03:24.100
  • I HAD NO IDEA THAT YOU WOULD
  • 00:03:24.100 --> 00:03:25.150
  • TUNE IN BUT GOD DID.
  • 00:03:25.150 --> 00:03:27.280
  • AND I FOUND MYSELF ASKING
  • 00:03:27.280 --> 00:03:29.030
  • THE LORD, HAVE THEY EVER
  • 00:03:29.030 --> 00:03:31.090
  • FELT LIKE THAT?
  • 00:03:31.090 --> 00:03:32.220
  • LET ME ASK YOU THAT.
  • 00:03:32.220 --> 00:03:33.260
  • HAVE YOU EVER FELT IN THAT
  • 00:03:33.260 --> 00:03:35.000
  • PLACE WHERE YOU JUST FEEL
  • 00:03:35.000 --> 00:03:36.210
  • SO PHYSICALLY HEARTBROKEN
  • 00:03:36.210 --> 00:03:38.280
  • THAT IT MAKES YOU ACTUALLY
  • 00:03:38.280 --> 00:03:40.030
  • ALMOST PHYSICALLY SICK?
  • 00:03:40.030 --> 00:03:41.260
  • I KNOW THAT I HAVE BEEN THERE
  • 00:03:41.260 --> 00:03:43.120
  • AND I WANT US TO LOOK AT
  • 00:03:43.120 --> 00:03:44.290
  • A WOMAN WHO EXPERIENCED
  • 00:03:44.290 --> 00:03:46.260
  • TREMENDOUS SORROW
  • 00:03:46.260 --> 00:03:48.070
  • IN SCRIPTURE.
  • 00:03:48.070 --> 00:03:49.130
  • IT IS NOT DISGUISED.
  • 00:03:49.130 --> 00:03:50.230
  • BUT SHE FOUND HOPE,
  • 00:03:50.230 --> 00:03:52.180
  • ACTUALLY BY SURRENDERING
  • 00:03:52.180 --> 00:03:54.080
  • HER DEEPEST HEARTBREAK TO GOD.
  • 00:03:55.130 --> 00:03:58.130
  • YOU'LL PROBABLY KNOW THIS,
  • 00:03:59.200 --> 00:04:01.020
  • FOR A WOMAN THE INABILITY
  • 00:04:01.020 --> 00:04:02.170
  • TO HAVE CHILDREN WAS LOOKED ON
  • 00:04:02.170 --> 00:04:05.120
  • THAT WAS UNFORTUNATE,
  • 00:04:07.290 --> 00:04:09.290
  • IT WAS LOOKED ON
  • 00:04:09.290 --> 00:04:11.110
  • AS ALMOST A CURSE FROM GOD.
  • 00:04:11.110 --> 00:04:12.290
  • NOW MANY OF YOU HAVE WRITTEN
  • 00:04:12.290 --> 00:04:14.060
  • AND YOU'VE SAID
  • 00:04:14.060 --> 00:04:15.220
  • WHAT A PRIMAL HEARTACHE IT IS
  • 00:04:15.220 --> 00:04:17.210
  • IF YOU'VE TRIED TO HAVE
  • 00:04:17.210 --> 00:04:18.290
  • A CHILD AND YOU CAN'T.
  • 00:04:18.290 --> 00:04:21.100
  • THAT'S WHY WHEN I LOOKED
  • 00:04:21.100 --> 00:04:22.220
  • AT HANNAH'S STORY
  • 00:04:22.220 --> 00:04:23.260
  • IN FIRST SAMUEL,
  • 00:04:23.260 --> 00:04:25.140
  • WHEN WE'RE FIRST INTRODUCED
  • 00:04:25.140 --> 00:04:27.140
  • TO HER THIS IS HOW
  • 00:04:27.140 --> 00:04:28.170
  • THAT IS HOW THEY DESCRIBED HER
  • 00:04:41.020 --> 00:04:43.030
  • TO HER WHOLE COMMUNITY.
  • 00:04:43.030 --> 00:04:45.280
  • I HAVE A FRIEND
  • 00:04:45.280 --> 00:04:47.180
  • AT THE MOMENT WHO HAS JUST
  • 00:04:47.180 --> 00:04:49.120
  • EXPERIENCED HER FOURTH
  • 00:04:49.120 --> 00:04:51.030
  • MISCARRIAGE.
  • 00:04:51.030 --> 00:04:52.240
  • IT'S DEVASTATING.
  • 00:04:52.240 --> 00:04:54.220
  • AND EVEN THOUGH IT IS
  • 00:04:54.220 --> 00:04:55.290
  • A DEVASTATING REALITY IN
  • 00:04:55.290 --> 00:04:57.060
  • OUR TIME BUT IN HANNAH'S TIME
  • 00:04:57.140 --> 00:05:00.160
  • IT TOTALLY DEFINED A WOMAN,
  • 00:05:00.200 --> 00:05:03.200
  • WHETHER YOU COULD HAVE
  • 00:05:03.200 --> 00:05:04.250
  • CHILDREN OR NOT,
  • 00:05:04.250 --> 00:05:06.050
  • AND BARRENNESS, AS I SAID,
  • 00:05:06.050 --> 00:05:07.150
  • WAS SEEN AS A CURSE AND A SIGN
  • 00:05:07.150 --> 00:05:10.060
  • OF GOD'S DISPLEASURE.
  • 00:05:10.060 --> 00:05:13.000
  • NOT ONLY THAT, THERE WOULD BE
  • 00:05:13.000 --> 00:05:14.210
  • A HUGE -- I MEAN HUGE FAMILY
  • 00:05:14.210 --> 00:05:16.180
  • PRESSURE TO PRODUCE A SON
  • 00:05:16.180 --> 00:05:18.200
  • BECAUSE YOU WOULD WANT AN HEIR
  • 00:05:18.200 --> 00:05:20.290
  • TO CARRY ON THE FAMILY NAME.
  • 00:05:20.290 --> 00:05:22.220
  • WELL ELKANAH, THE HUSBAND WAS
  • 00:05:22.220 --> 00:05:24.270
  • THE FIFTH GENERATION OF
  • 00:05:24.270 --> 00:05:26.190
  • A VERY STRONG FAMILY AND
  • 00:05:26.190 --> 00:05:29.000
  • THEY WERE COUNTING ON HANNAH
  • 00:05:29.000 --> 00:05:30.220
  • TO DELIVER THE SIXTH SON.
  • 00:05:31.010 --> 00:05:34.010
  • CARRYING ON THE FAMILY NAME
  • 00:05:34.010 --> 00:05:35.120
  • WAS SO CRUCIAL IN THOSE DAYS
  • 00:05:35.120 --> 00:05:36.260
  • THAT MOSES HAD INTRODUCED WHAT
  • 00:05:36.260 --> 00:05:38.270
  • WAS KNOWN AS LEVIRATE LAW.
  • 00:05:38.270 --> 00:05:41.270
  • ALL ABOUT IT, YOU CAN READ
  • 00:05:43.010 --> 00:05:44.020
  • ABOUT IT IN DEUTERONOMY
  • 00:05:44.020 --> 00:05:45.080
  • 25:5-10.
  • 00:05:45.080 --> 00:05:47.030
  • WHAT IT SAID.
  • 00:05:48.060 --> 00:05:49.090
  • THE LAW STATED THAT IF
  • 00:05:49.090 --> 00:05:50.200
  • A MAN DIED AND HAD PRODUCED
  • 00:05:50.200 --> 00:05:52.080
  • NO HEIR HIS BROTHER HAD
  • 00:05:52.080 --> 00:05:55.060
  • TO MARRY HIS SISTER-IN-LAW
  • 00:05:55.060 --> 00:05:57.100
  • AND PRODUCE A SON
  • 00:05:57.100 --> 00:05:58.270
  • WHO WOULD PRESERVE
  • 00:05:58.270 --> 00:06:00.040
  • THE DEAD BROTHER'S NAME.
  • 00:06:00.040 --> 00:06:02.010
  • SO WITH NO MALE HEIR
  • 00:06:02.010 --> 00:06:03.260
  • A WOMAN IN THOSE DAYS
  • 00:06:03.260 --> 00:06:05.210
  • HAD LITTLE WORTH.
  • 00:06:05.210 --> 00:06:08.180
  • EVERY TIME SHE WOULD BE
  • 00:06:08.180 --> 00:06:09.200
  • AT A FAMILY GATHERING
  • 00:06:09.200 --> 00:06:11.170
  • OR WALKING IN THE MARKET
  • 00:06:11.170 --> 00:06:13.210
  • THAT WAS WHAT SHE WORE.
  • 00:06:13.210 --> 00:06:15.230
  • SHE WORE THE BADGE OF
  • 00:06:15.230 --> 00:06:17.240
  • CHILDLESSNESS LIKE A NEON SIGN
  • 00:06:18.050 --> 00:06:21.050
  • AROUND HER NECK.
  • 00:06:21.050 --> 00:06:23.110
  • THE ONE THING THAT SHE LONGED
  • 00:06:23.110 --> 00:06:25.210
  • TO GIVE HER HUSBAND
  • 00:06:25.210 --> 00:06:27.070
  • SHE COULDN'T.
  • 00:06:27.070 --> 00:06:28.210
  • BUT FOR HANNAH, NOT ONLY THAT,
  • 00:06:28.270 --> 00:06:31.270
  • SOMEBODY ELSE DID.
  • 00:06:31.270 --> 00:06:33.250
  • PENINNAH,
  • 00:06:33.250 --> 00:06:35.070
  • ELKANAH'S OTHER WIFE,
  • 00:06:35.070 --> 00:06:37.020
  • COULD HAVE CHILDREN
  • 00:06:37.020 --> 00:06:38.160
  • AND SHE DID.
  • 00:06:38.160 --> 00:06:40.060
  • NOW I'LL WARN YOU UPFRONT
  • 00:06:40.060 --> 00:06:41.120
  • BEFORE WE LOOK AT HER
  • 00:06:41.120 --> 00:06:42.230
  • YOU'RE PROBABLY NOT GOING
  • 00:06:42.230 --> 00:06:43.270
  • TO LIKE HER VERY MUCH.
  • 00:06:43.270 --> 00:06:45.070
  • WE READ IN FIRST SAMUEL THAT
  • 00:06:45.070 --> 00:06:46.160
  • HANNAH LIVED IN EVIL DAYS
  • 00:06:46.160 --> 00:06:49.010
  • WHERE MOST PEOPLE GAVE
  • 00:06:49.010 --> 00:06:50.100
  • LITTLE THOUGHT TO THE LAWS
  • 00:06:50.100 --> 00:06:51.290
  • THAT GOD HAD GIVEN TO MOSES
  • 00:06:51.290 --> 00:06:53.170
  • FOR THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:06:53.170 --> 00:06:55.220
  • POLYGAMY, HAVING MORE THAN
  • 00:06:55.220 --> 00:06:57.070
  • ONE WIFE, HAD BECOME
  • 00:06:57.070 --> 00:06:59.070
  • ACCEPTABLE.
  • 00:06:59.070 --> 00:07:01.040
  • WE READ ELKANAH HAD TWO WIVES,
  • 00:07:01.040 --> 00:07:03.020
  • HANNAH AND PENINNAH.
  • 00:07:03.020 --> 00:07:05.070
  • WAS THE FIRST WIFE BUT
  • 00:07:06.210 --> 00:07:08.040
  • AFTER YEARS OF PRODUCING
  • 00:07:08.040 --> 00:07:09.270
  • AND HIS NEW WIFE WAS ABLE TO
  • 00:07:14.010 --> 00:07:15.120
  • GIVE BIRTH TO MANY CHILDREN,
  • 00:07:15.120 --> 00:07:17.080
  • BOYS AND GIRLS.
  • 00:07:17.080 --> 00:07:18.250
  • BUT SHE WAS ALSO
  • 00:07:18.250 --> 00:07:20.100
  • A VERY CRUEL WOMAN.
  • 00:07:20.100 --> 00:07:22.080
  • RATHER THAN COMFORTING
  • 00:07:22.080 --> 00:07:24.130
  • AND SUPPORTING HANNAH,
  • 00:07:24.130 --> 00:07:26.260
  • PENINNAH SIMPLY ADDED TO
  • 00:07:26.260 --> 00:07:28.210
  • HANNAH'S PAIN, AND HARASSMENT
  • 00:07:28.210 --> 00:07:31.150
  • WENT ON FOR YEARS.
  • 00:07:31.150 --> 00:07:34.000
  • SOMETIMES WE AS WOMEN CAN
  • 00:07:57.110 --> 00:07:58.260
  • BE SO HARD ON ONE ANOTHER,
  • 00:07:59.000 --> 00:08:02.020
  • WHERE YOU WOULD THINK
  • 00:08:02.020 --> 00:08:03.210
  • WE WOULD WANT TO STEP
  • 00:08:03.210 --> 00:08:05.000
  • IN THE GAP AND BE THERE
  • 00:08:05.000 --> 00:08:06.070
  • FOR EACH OTHER.
  • 00:08:06.070 --> 00:08:07.250
  • BUT INSTEAD, WHAT THIS WOMAN
  • 00:08:07.250 --> 00:08:09.040
  • DID WAS REALLY RUB SALT
  • 00:08:09.040 --> 00:08:11.110
  • IN A VERY OPEN WOUND.
  • 00:08:11.110 --> 00:08:13.080
  • HOW CRUEL!
  • 00:08:13.080 --> 00:08:14.230
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT THAT
  • 00:08:14.230 --> 00:08:15.260
  • MUST HAVE FELT LIKE?
  • 00:08:15.260 --> 00:08:17.150
  • RATHER THAN SHARE HER CHILDREN
  • 00:08:17.150 --> 00:08:19.130
  • WITH HANNAH AND TRY TO EASE
  • 00:08:19.130 --> 00:08:20.270
  • HER BURDEN SHE USED
  • 00:08:20.270 --> 00:08:23.080
  • THE VERY GIFTS OF GOD
  • 00:08:23.080 --> 00:08:25.210
  • TO ADD TO HANNAH'S PAIN.
  • 00:08:25.210 --> 00:08:28.210
  • IN ADDITION THIS CUSTOM
  • 00:08:28.210 --> 00:08:30.070
  • OF APPEARING BEFORE THE LORD
  • 00:08:30.070 --> 00:08:32.140
  • WAS MOST LIKELY THE FEAST
  • 00:08:32.140 --> 00:08:34.070
  • OF BOOTHS, THREE TIMES
  • 00:08:34.070 --> 00:08:35.230
  • A YEAR AT THE CENTRAL
  • 00:08:35.230 --> 00:08:37.060
  • SANCTUARY COMMEMORATED
  • 00:08:37.060 --> 00:08:39.130
  • GOD'S CARE FOR HIS PEOPLE
  • 00:08:39.130 --> 00:08:40.260
  • DURING THE WILDERNESS JOURNEY
  • 00:08:40.260 --> 00:08:42.130
  • TO CANAAN AND CELEBRATED
  • 00:08:42.130 --> 00:08:43.280
  • WITH JOY AND FEASTING.
  • 00:08:43.280 --> 00:08:45.170
  • IT WAS ONE OF THOSE FEASTS
  • 00:08:45.170 --> 00:08:47.030
  • WHERE IT WAS VERY JOYFUL.
  • 00:08:47.030 --> 00:08:49.170
  • IT WAS TALKING ABOUT GOD'S
  • 00:08:49.170 --> 00:08:50.190
  • BLESSINGS, HIS MERCIES,
  • 00:08:50.190 --> 00:08:51.280
  • HIS MIRACLES.
  • 00:08:51.280 --> 00:08:53.210
  • WELL, HANNAH WAS FACED
  • 00:08:53.210 --> 00:08:55.040
  • WITH REMORSE AND LOSS
  • 00:08:55.040 --> 00:08:57.030
  • EVERY SINGLE YEAR.
  • 00:08:57.030 --> 00:08:58.270
  • THE LORD HAD
  • 00:08:58.270 --> 00:09:00.130
  • "CLOSED HER WOMB."
  • 00:09:00.130 --> 00:09:02.070
  • HEARTACHE COMES IN
  • 00:09:02.070 --> 00:09:04.140
  • MANY DIFFERENT FORMS.
  • 00:09:04.140 --> 00:09:06.210
  • FOR YOU IT MIGHT BE MAYBE
  • 00:09:06.210 --> 00:09:08.210
  • THE LOSS OF A MARRIAGE.
  • 00:09:08.210 --> 00:09:10.200
  • OR THE REALITY THAT TIME
  • 00:09:10.200 --> 00:09:12.000
  • IS TICKING ON AND THERE IS
  • 00:09:12.000 --> 00:09:13.060
  • NO PRINCE CHARMING
  • 00:09:13.060 --> 00:09:15.070
  • IN THE WINGS.
  • 00:09:15.070 --> 00:09:17.010
  • IT MIGHT EVEN BE YOUR OWN
  • 00:09:17.010 --> 00:09:18.060
  • HEALTH OR THE CHILD
  • 00:09:18.060 --> 00:09:20.180
  • YOU RAISED IN THE CHURCH
  • 00:09:20.180 --> 00:09:22.020
  • NOW WANTS NOTHING
  • 00:09:22.020 --> 00:09:23.270
  • TO DO WITH GOD.
  • 00:09:23.270 --> 00:09:26.060
  • THAT IS SO HARD!
  • 00:09:26.060 --> 00:09:28.150
  • THE UNPACKING OF HEARTACHE
  • 00:09:28.150 --> 00:09:29.250
  • IS DIFFERENT FOR EVERYONE
  • 00:09:29.250 --> 00:09:31.130
  • BUT AT SOME POINT IN OUR LIVES
  • 00:09:31.130 --> 00:09:34.040
  • IT IS DELIVERED TO EVERY
  • 00:09:34.040 --> 00:09:36.130
  • SINGLE ONE OF OUR DOORS.
  • 00:09:36.130 --> 00:09:38.220
  • WHAT I FIND CHALLENGING
  • 00:09:38.220 --> 00:09:40.230
  • AND BEAUTIFUL ABOUT
  • 00:09:40.230 --> 00:09:42.050
  • HANNAH'S LIFE IS THAT
  • 00:09:42.050 --> 00:09:43.210
  • EVEN THOUGH HER HEART WAS
  • 00:09:43.210 --> 00:09:45.000
  • BROKEN, ALTHOUGH SHE MUST
  • 00:09:45.000 --> 00:09:47.000
  • HAVE FELT SHE HAD FAILED
  • 00:09:47.000 --> 00:09:48.230
  • AS A WOMAN AND AS A WIFE
  • 00:09:48.230 --> 00:09:51.120
  • DESPITE THE RELENTLESS
  • 00:09:51.120 --> 00:09:53.150
  • TAUNTING OF ANOTHER,
  • 00:09:53.150 --> 00:09:56.030
  • HER FAITH IN GOD
  • 00:09:56.030 --> 00:09:58.040
  • REMAINED INTACT.
  • 00:09:58.040 --> 00:10:00.070
  • SO YOU MIGHT ASK, WHAT WAS
  • 00:10:00.070 --> 00:10:02.090
  • HANNAH'S SECRET?
  • 00:10:02.090 --> 00:10:03.250
  • WELL, HANNAH'S SECRET WAS
  • 00:10:03.250 --> 00:10:05.150
  • VERY SIMPLE AND PROFOUND.
  • 00:10:05.230 --> 00:10:08.230
  • SHE KNEW WHERE
  • 00:10:08.230 --> 00:10:10.160
  • I'M SURE THIS WAS NOT
  • 00:10:39.100 --> 00:10:40.240
  • THE FIRST TIME THAT HANNAH
  • 00:10:40.240 --> 00:10:42.110
  • HAD PRAYED THIS PRAYER.
  • 00:10:42.110 --> 00:10:44.130
  • I'M SURE SHE POURED HER SOUL
  • 00:10:44.130 --> 00:10:46.090
  • OUT TO GOD FOR YEARS
  • 00:10:46.090 --> 00:10:48.080
  • AND YEARS BUT THIS IS THE
  • 00:10:48.080 --> 00:10:50.080
  • EVEN WHEN GOD SEEMED SILENT
  • 00:10:52.200 --> 00:10:55.200
  • SHE CONTINUED TO TAKE
  • 00:10:55.200 --> 00:10:57.140
  • LET'S JUST PAUSE FOR
  • 00:10:58.190 --> 00:11:00.080
  • A MINUTE AND LOOK
  • 00:11:00.080 --> 00:11:02.030
  • AT YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:11:02.030 --> 00:11:04.040
  • I DON'T KNOW RIGHT NOW
  • 00:11:04.040 --> 00:11:05.250
  • WHAT YOU ARE FACING BUT
  • 00:11:05.250 --> 00:11:07.190
  • JUST FROM READING THOSE
  • 00:11:07.190 --> 00:11:08.270
  • FEW COMMENTS LAST EVENING
  • 00:11:08.270 --> 00:11:11.030
  • ON MY FACEBOOK PAGE,
  • 00:11:11.030 --> 00:11:12.250
  • SOME OF YOU ARE FACING
  • 00:11:12.250 --> 00:11:14.110
  • HEARTACHE THAT HAS GONE ON
  • 00:11:14.110 --> 00:11:15.220
  • FOR A LONG, LONG TIME.
  • 00:11:16.190 --> 00:11:19.190
  • BUT MY QUESTION WOULD BE
  • 00:11:19.190 --> 00:11:21.120
  • AS WE LOOK AT OUR SISTER
  • 00:11:21.120 --> 00:11:23.230
  • HANNAH -- IT'S AMAZING
  • 00:11:23.230 --> 00:11:25.060
  • TO THINK ONE DAY WE'LL GET
  • 00:11:25.060 --> 00:11:26.090
  • TO MEET HER!
  • 00:11:26.090 --> 00:11:28.030
  • BUT AS WE LOOK AT
  • 00:11:28.030 --> 00:11:29.170
  • THE EXAMPLE OF HER LIFE,
  • 00:11:29.170 --> 00:11:31.170
  • ARE YOU ABLE TO DO THAT?
  • 00:11:31.170 --> 00:11:33.160
  • ARE YOU ABLE TO TAKE
  • 00:11:33.160 --> 00:11:34.280
  • THAT PAIN TO GOD?
  • 00:11:34.280 --> 00:11:36.280
  • SEE THE HARD THING IS
  • 00:11:36.280 --> 00:11:38.150
  • WE THINK ON ONE HAND WELL,
  • 00:11:38.150 --> 00:11:40.080
  • BUT GOD COULD TAKE
  • 00:11:40.080 --> 00:11:41.120
  • THE PAIN AWAY.
  • 00:11:41.120 --> 00:11:42.180
  • HE COULD ANSWER THE PRAYER.
  • 00:11:42.180 --> 00:11:44.200
  • BUT ARE YOU STILL WILLING
  • 00:11:44.200 --> 00:11:46.070
  • TO TAKE THAT PAIN AND
  • 00:11:46.070 --> 00:11:47.220
  • THAT PRAYER TO HIM?
  • 00:11:47.220 --> 00:11:49.190
  • BECAUSE AS WE'LL SEE
  • 00:11:49.190 --> 00:11:50.240
  • IN HANNAH'S STORY SHE --
  • 00:11:50.240 --> 00:11:53.170
  • SOMETHING I SAY OFTEN
  • 00:11:53.170 --> 00:11:54.260
  • BUT I'LL SAY IT AGAIN.
  • 00:11:54.260 --> 00:11:56.240
  • WE CAN KNOW THE MASTER
  • 00:11:56.240 --> 00:11:58.190
  • AND WE DON'T ALWAYS KNOW
  • 00:11:58.190 --> 00:11:59.260
  • THE MASTER PLAN.
  • 00:11:59.260 --> 00:12:01.080
  • I WOULD JUST SAY THAT TO YOU.
  • 00:12:01.080 --> 00:12:02.280
  • TRUST THE MASTER THAT
  • 00:12:02.280 --> 00:12:04.220
  • HE CARES ABOUT YOU.
  • 00:12:04.220 --> 00:12:06.200
  • WELL, AS YOU READ HANNAH'S
  • 00:12:06.200 --> 00:12:07.290
  • PRAYER IT MIGHT APPEAR,
  • 00:12:07.290 --> 00:12:10.070
  • ON FIRST READ IT LOOKS LIKE
  • 00:12:10.070 --> 00:12:11.240
  • SHE IS TRYING TO MAKE
  • 00:12:11.240 --> 00:12:13.010
  • A DEAL WITH GOD.
  • 00:12:13.010 --> 00:12:14.190
  • YOU KNOW, I'LL DO THIS
  • 00:12:14.190 --> 00:12:16.020
  • IF YOU'LL DO THAT.
  • 00:12:16.020 --> 00:12:17.130
  • BUT I DON'T THINK THAT AT ALL.
  • 00:12:17.130 --> 00:12:19.100
  • I THINK HANNAH WAS MAKING
  • 00:12:19.100 --> 00:12:20.210
  • A VERY HOLY VOW.
  • 00:12:20.280 --> 00:12:23.280
  • SHE HAD COME TO A PLACE
  • 00:12:23.280 --> 00:12:25.090
  • INSIDE OF HER SOUL AND SPIRIT
  • 00:12:25.090 --> 00:12:26.150
  • WHERE SHE WAS READY TO
  • 00:12:26.150 --> 00:12:28.080
  • SURRENDER WHAT MATTERED MOST
  • 00:12:28.080 --> 00:12:30.080
  • TO HER IN LIFE, AND IN THAT
  • 00:12:30.080 --> 00:12:32.150
  • VERY PLACE, BEFORE HER PRAYER
  • 00:12:32.240 --> 00:12:35.240
  • WAS ANSWERED, HANNAH FOUND
  • 00:12:35.240 --> 00:12:37.150
  • STRENGTH AND PEACE.
  • 00:12:37.260 --> 00:12:40.260
  • SO IMAGINE, YOU, TAKING
  • 00:12:40.260 --> 00:12:43.230
  • YOUR BIGGEST HEARTACHE,
  • 00:12:43.230 --> 00:12:46.020
  • YOUR MOST TREASURED DREAM
  • 00:12:46.270 --> 00:12:49.270
  • AND SURRENDERING IT
  • 00:12:49.270 --> 00:12:52.040
  • TO YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER.
  • 00:12:52.040 --> 00:12:54.260
  • WELL, ELI WHO WAS THE PRIEST,
  • 00:12:54.260 --> 00:12:57.060
  • ELI SAW HANNAH PRAYING
  • 00:12:58.120 --> 00:13:00.170
  • BUT AT FIRST HE MISUNDERSTOOD
  • 00:13:00.170 --> 00:13:02.000
  • SHE WAS PRAYING WITH
  • 00:13:03.170 --> 00:13:04.190
  • SUCH DESPERATION THAT ALTHOUGH
  • 00:13:04.190 --> 00:13:07.060
  • HER LIPS MOVED THERE WAS
  • 00:13:07.060 --> 00:13:08.090
  • NO SOUND COMING OUT
  • 00:13:08.090 --> 00:13:09.180
  • OF HER MOUTH.
  • 00:13:09.180 --> 00:13:10.240
  • SO ELI THOUGHT SHE WAS DRUNK.
  • 00:13:11.110 --> 00:13:14.110
  • SOME COMMENTATORS THAT
  • 00:13:14.110 --> 00:13:15.150
  • I'VE READ SEE THAT AS
  • 00:13:15.150 --> 00:13:16.230
  • A SIGN OF ELI'S GODLINESS.
  • 00:13:16.230 --> 00:13:19.080
  • THAT HE REBUKED WHAT
  • 00:13:19.080 --> 00:13:20.130
  • APPEARED TO BE INAPPROPRIATE
  • 00:13:20.130 --> 00:13:21.240
  • BEHAVIOR IN THE TEMPLE.
  • 00:13:21.240 --> 00:13:23.070
  • I DON'T SEE IT THAT WAY
  • 00:13:23.070 --> 00:13:24.230
  • AT ALL.
  • 00:13:24.230 --> 00:13:26.000
  • I SEE IT MUCH MORE AS
  • 00:13:26.000 --> 00:13:27.060
  • A SIGN OF THE TIMES
  • 00:13:27.060 --> 00:13:28.130
  • THEY WERE LIVING IN.
  • 00:13:28.130 --> 00:13:29.240
  • IT PROBABLY HAD BEEN QUITE
  • 00:13:29.240 --> 00:13:30.290
  • SOME TIME SINCE ELI HAD SEEN
  • 00:13:30.290 --> 00:13:33.010
  • ANYONE PRAY WITH PASSION.
  • 00:13:34.000 --> 00:13:37.000
  • I MEAN, POOR HANNAH!
  • 00:13:37.000 --> 00:13:39.100
  • EVEN IN THE HOUSE OF GOD
  • 00:13:39.100 --> 00:13:41.190
  • SHE FOUND NO COMFORT --
  • 00:13:41.190 --> 00:13:43.040
  • FROM THE VERY ONE WHO WAS
  • 00:13:43.040 --> 00:13:44.070
  • SUPPOSED TO BE HER LINK
  • 00:13:44.070 --> 00:13:46.060
  • TO HER HEAVENLY FATHER.
  • 00:13:46.060 --> 00:13:48.100
  • WELL, TO ELI'S CREDIT,
  • 00:13:48.100 --> 00:13:50.070
  • WHEN HE UNDERSTOOD
  • 00:13:50.070 --> 00:13:51.120
  • HIS MISTAKE HE GAVE HER
  • 00:13:51.120 --> 00:13:52.180
  • HIS BLESSING.
  • 00:13:52.180 --> 00:13:54.140
  • AND WITH THAT HANNAH
  • 00:14:06.210 --> 00:14:08.110
  • RETURNED HOME AND SHE BECAME
  • 00:14:08.110 --> 00:14:10.290
  • PREGNANT WITH A BOY.
  • 00:14:10.290 --> 00:14:13.210
  • SHE CALLED HIM SAMUEL,
  • 00:14:13.210 --> 00:14:16.010
  • WHICH MEANS NAME OF GOD
  • 00:14:16.010 --> 00:14:18.280
  • OR OFFSPRING OF GOD.
  • 00:14:18.280 --> 00:14:21.210
  • WELL, WHEN HE WAS ABOUT
  • 00:14:21.210 --> 00:14:23.120
  • THREE OR FOUR YEARS OLD
  • 00:14:23.120 --> 00:14:25.210
  • HANNAH FULFILLED HER VOW
  • 00:14:25.210 --> 00:14:27.170
  • TO GOD AND BROUGHT HER SON
  • 00:14:27.170 --> 00:14:29.230
  • SAMUEL TO ELI TO SERVE GOD
  • 00:14:30.000 --> 00:14:33.000
  • FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE.
  • 00:14:33.000 --> 00:14:35.160
  • THINK ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:14:35.160 --> 00:14:36.270
  • ALL HANNAH HAD EVER WANTED
  • 00:14:36.270 --> 00:14:38.240
  • WAS A SON AND NOW SHE HAD
  • 00:14:38.240 --> 00:14:41.070
  • THIS BEAUTIFUL BOY.
  • 00:14:41.070 --> 00:14:44.070
  • IMAGINE FOR A MOMENT
  • 00:14:44.070 --> 00:14:46.040
  • HOW SHE MUST HAVE FELT.
  • 00:14:46.040 --> 00:14:48.090
  • SHE HAD BEEN GRANTED
  • 00:14:48.090 --> 00:14:49.170
  • HER HEART'S DESIRE FOR A SON
  • 00:14:49.170 --> 00:14:51.090
  • AND THEN KNOWING THAT THE VOW
  • 00:14:51.090 --> 00:14:53.080
  • SHE HAD MADE TO GOD
  • 00:14:53.080 --> 00:14:54.230
  • HAD TO BE KEPT.
  • 00:14:54.230 --> 00:14:56.270
  • BUT HERE'S WHAT I DIDN'T KNOW
  • 00:14:56.270 --> 00:14:58.180
  • UNTIL I STUDIED IT
  • 00:14:58.180 --> 00:14:59.270
  • A LITTLE BIT FURTHER.
  • 00:14:59.270 --> 00:15:01.250
  • DO YOU KNOW THAT HANNAH
  • 00:15:01.250 --> 00:15:03.010
  • LEGALLY HAD A WAY
  • 00:15:03.010 --> 00:15:04.270
  • TO GET OUT OF HER VOW?
  • 00:15:04.270 --> 00:15:07.120
  • ALL SHE NEEDED TO DO
  • 00:15:07.120 --> 00:15:08.230
  • WAS TO ASK HER HUSBAND,
  • 00:15:08.230 --> 00:15:10.090
  • WHO ADORED HER, TO REFUSE
  • 00:15:10.090 --> 00:15:12.240
  • TO ACCEPT THE VOW SHE MADE
  • 00:15:12.240 --> 00:15:14.170
  • AND SHE WAS LITERALLY
  • 00:15:14.170 --> 00:15:16.000
  • HOME FREE.
  • 00:15:16.000 --> 00:15:17.060
  • THERE WAS PROVISION
  • 00:15:17.060 --> 00:15:18.110
  • IN THE LAW.
  • 00:15:18.110 --> 00:15:19.160
  • SHE WAS NOT SIMPLY HOME FREE,
  • 00:15:19.160 --> 00:15:21.000
  • SHE WAS FORGIVEN BY GOD
  • 00:15:21.000 --> 00:15:22.170
  • FOR EVEN MAKING THE VOW.
  • 00:15:22.170 --> 00:15:23.280
  • IT WAS PART OF THE LAW
  • 00:15:23.280 --> 00:15:25.010
  • GIVEN TO MOSES TO HELP
  • 00:15:25.010 --> 00:15:26.110
  • GOVERN THE PEOPLE.
  • 00:15:26.110 --> 00:15:27.220
  • SO HANNAH DIDN'T
  • 00:15:52.200 --> 00:15:53.290
  • HAVE TO DO THIS.
  • 00:15:53.290 --> 00:15:55.080
  • HANNAH COULD SIMPLY HAVE
  • 00:15:55.080 --> 00:15:56.150
  • GONE TO HER HUSBAND AND SAID,
  • 00:15:56.150 --> 00:15:57.190
  • "HEY, I MADE THIS VOW
  • 00:15:57.190 --> 00:15:59.030
  • TO GOD FOUR YEARS AGO,
  • 00:15:59.030 --> 00:16:01.140
  • FIVE YEARS AGO BUT PLEASE
  • 00:16:01.140 --> 00:16:04.060
  • WILL YOU RENOUNCE THIS VOW?"
  • 00:16:04.060 --> 00:16:06.010
  • BUT INSTEAD HANNAH CHOSE
  • 00:16:06.010 --> 00:16:08.070
  • TO HONOR HER VOW TO GOD.
  • 00:16:08.070 --> 00:16:10.220
  • TO HONOR GOD WITH THE REQUEST
  • 00:16:10.220 --> 00:16:12.120
  • THAT HE HAD GRANTED HER.
  • 00:16:12.120 --> 00:16:14.200
  • I THINK THE MYSTERY HERE
  • 00:16:14.200 --> 00:16:15.270
  • IS WHAT HANNAH HAD DISCOVERED
  • 00:16:15.270 --> 00:16:18.000
  • WAS THE JOY OF SURRENDERING
  • 00:16:18.060 --> 00:16:21.060
  • TO A LOVING GOD
  • 00:16:21.060 --> 00:16:22.220
  • EVEN IN HER DEEPEST HEARTACHE.
  • 00:16:23.190 --> 00:16:26.190
  • AND THEN THERE'S THIS
  • 00:16:43.130 --> 00:16:44.210
  • BEAUTIFUL -- IT IS A BIT LIKE,
  • 00:16:44.210 --> 00:16:46.000
  • WHEN I READ IT I ALWAYS
  • 00:16:46.000 --> 00:16:47.010
  • THINK IT IS A BIT LIKE
  • 00:16:47.010 --> 00:16:48.050
  • MARY MAGDALENE,
  • 00:16:48.050 --> 00:16:49.120
  • YOU KNOW THAT MAGNIFICAT.
  • 00:16:49.120 --> 00:16:50.180
  • I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:17:05.280 --> 00:17:07.130
  • I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU LONG FOR
  • 00:17:09.120 --> 00:17:12.070
  • BUT WOULD YOU BE WILLING
  • 00:17:12.070 --> 00:17:13.280
  • TO SURRENDER THAT
  • 00:17:13.280 --> 00:17:16.070
  • SEE SOMETIMES WE HAVE THIS
  • 00:17:18.020 --> 00:17:20.150
  • WRONG IDEA OF WHO GOD IS.
  • 00:17:20.150 --> 00:17:22.230
  • LIKE HE IS JUST WAITING
  • 00:17:22.230 --> 00:17:24.000
  • UP THERE IN THE SKY
  • 00:17:24.000 --> 00:17:25.020
  • TO DESTROY ALL THE PLANS
  • 00:17:25.020 --> 00:17:26.130
  • YOU HAVE OR TAKING DELIGHT
  • 00:17:26.130 --> 00:17:29.010
  • IN TAKING THINGS AWAY FROM YOU
  • 00:17:29.010 --> 00:17:31.020
  • AND THAT IS NOT OUR GOD.
  • 00:17:31.020 --> 00:17:33.160
  • IF YOU EVER WANT LIKE
  • 00:17:33.160 --> 00:17:35.080
  • A REALLY CLEAR PICTURE
  • 00:17:35.080 --> 00:17:37.220
  • OF WHO OUR FATHER IS,
  • 00:17:37.220 --> 00:17:40.070
  • YOU SIMPLY HAVE TO TAKE A LOOK
  • 00:17:40.070 --> 00:17:41.290
  • AT THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST.
  • 00:17:41.290 --> 00:17:44.220
  • SEE GOD DID NOT WANT
  • 00:17:44.220 --> 00:17:46.050
  • ETERNITY WITHOUT YOU.
  • 00:17:46.140 --> 00:17:49.140
  • NOT JUST THOSE IN YOUR
  • 00:17:49.140 --> 00:17:50.240
  • BIBLE STUDY THAT YOU THINK
  • 00:17:50.240 --> 00:17:51.290
  • ARE THE HOLIER ONES.
  • 00:17:51.290 --> 00:17:53.170
  • HE WANTED YOU THERE.
  • 00:17:53.170 --> 00:17:55.150
  • HE WANTED A RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:17:55.150 --> 00:17:56.190
  • WITH YOU.
  • 00:17:56.190 --> 00:17:58.010
  • SO HE WAS WILLING TO SURRENDER
  • 00:17:58.010 --> 00:17:59.250
  • HIS MOST PRECIOUS,
  • 00:17:59.250 --> 00:18:02.250
  • PRECIOUS THING IN THE WORLD,
  • 00:18:02.250 --> 00:18:04.020
  • HIS OWN SON,
  • 00:18:04.020 --> 00:18:05.220
  • SO THAT YOU AND I CAN HAVE
  • 00:18:05.220 --> 00:18:07.280
  • A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.
  • 00:18:08.020 --> 00:18:11.020
  • I JUST ASK YOU TO LET GOD
  • 00:18:11.020 --> 00:18:13.090
  • INTO YOUR HEARTACHE.
  • 00:18:13.090 --> 00:18:15.220
  • SO OFTEN WHEN WE ARE HURTING,
  • 00:18:15.220 --> 00:18:17.040
  • THE TEMPTATION IS
  • 00:18:17.040 --> 00:18:18.130
  • TO CLOSE THE DOOR.
  • 00:18:18.130 --> 00:18:20.050
  • MAYBE YOU'RE TEMPTED TO EVEN
  • 00:18:20.050 --> 00:18:21.110
  • JUST THINK, I'M NOT GOING
  • 00:18:21.110 --> 00:18:22.170
  • TO GO TO CHURCH ANYMORE.
  • 00:18:22.170 --> 00:18:24.010
  • BUT THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT
  • 00:18:24.010 --> 00:18:25.110
  • BEING ABLE TO WORSHIP
  • 00:18:25.110 --> 00:18:27.000
  • IN THE MIDST OF OUR PAIN
  • 00:18:27.000 --> 00:18:29.120
  • THAT BRINGS SO MUCH GLORY
  • 00:18:29.140 --> 00:18:32.140
  • TO GOD.
  • 00:18:32.140 --> 00:18:34.110
  • I'VE BEEN A CHRISTIAN SINCE
  • 00:18:34.110 --> 00:18:35.240
  • I WAS 11 YEARS OF AGE
  • 00:18:35.240 --> 00:18:38.220
  • AND I'M NOW 62.
  • 00:18:38.220 --> 00:18:40.180
  • THAT'S 51 YEARS OF
  • 00:18:40.180 --> 00:18:42.200
  • THE FAITHFULNESS OF GOD;
  • 00:18:42.200 --> 00:18:45.040
  • 51 YEARS OF BEING ABLE
  • 00:18:45.040 --> 00:18:46.260
  • TO TAKE MY HEARTACHE TO HIM
  • 00:18:46.260 --> 00:18:48.230
  • -- BROKEN DREAMS.
  • 00:18:48.230 --> 00:18:51.030
  • SOMETIMES I'VE DISCOVERED
  • 00:18:51.030 --> 00:18:52.180
  • WHAT I REALLY WANTED.
  • 00:18:52.180 --> 00:18:54.120
  • IT WASN'T SO MUCH THAT
  • 00:18:54.120 --> 00:18:55.170
  • I WANTED THAT THING,
  • 00:18:55.170 --> 00:18:57.000
  • WHAT I REALLY WANTED
  • 00:18:57.000 --> 00:18:58.090
  • WAS MORE OF HIM.
  • 00:18:58.090 --> 00:18:59.270
  • IF THAT'S YOUR PRAYER TODAY
  • 00:18:59.270 --> 00:19:01.110
  • THEN I KNOW GOD WILL
  • 00:19:01.110 --> 00:19:02.180
  • ANSWER THAT.
  • 00:19:02.180 --> 00:19:04.150
  • THERE'S A LOT OF MOMS LIKE ME
  • 00:19:04.150 --> 00:19:07.150
  • AROUND THE WORLD AND
  • 00:19:07.150 --> 00:19:09.000
  • THEIR PRAYER IS ACTUALLY
  • 00:19:09.000 --> 00:19:10.070
  • A VERY SIMPLE ONE.
  • 00:19:10.070 --> 00:19:12.180
  • IT'S A PRAYER THAT
  • 00:19:12.180 --> 00:19:14.000
  • ACTUALLY YOU AND I COULD
  • 00:19:14.000 --> 00:19:15.180
  • IT IS OUR COMMITMENT HERE
  • 00:19:17.090 --> 00:19:19.000
  • THIS YEAR AT LIFE ,
  • 00:19:19.000 --> 00:19:20.180
  • WE WANT TO BUILD 400 NEW WELLS
  • 00:19:20.280 --> 00:19:23.280
  • IN 15 NATIONS.
  • 00:19:23.280 --> 00:19:25.200
  • NOW THAT CAN SEEM OVERWHELMING
  • 00:19:25.200 --> 00:19:27.080
  • BUT IT IS NOT.
  • 00:19:27.080 --> 00:19:28.120
  • WE'VE BROKEN IT DOWN
  • 00:19:28.120 --> 00:19:29.170
  • TO MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR YOU
  • 00:19:29.170 --> 00:19:30.250
  • AND ME, FOR EACH ONE OF US
  • 00:19:30.250 --> 00:19:32.160
  • TO DO SOMETHING.
  • 00:19:32.160 --> 00:19:34.010
  • I FOUND IT ALMOST
  • 00:19:34.010 --> 00:19:35.100
  • MIND-BLOWING WHEN
  • 00:19:35.100 --> 00:19:37.070
  • I MET SOME OF THESE CHILDREN
  • 00:19:37.070 --> 00:19:38.260
  • AND I WALKED WITH THEIR MOMS
  • 00:19:38.260 --> 00:19:40.020
  • TO THINK, THESE CHILDREN
  • 00:19:40.020 --> 00:19:41.110
  • HAVE NEVER IN THEIR LIVES
  • 00:19:41.110 --> 00:19:43.060
  • TASTED CLEAN WATER.
  • 00:19:43.060 --> 00:19:45.020

  • ARE SO THIRSTY?
  • 00:19:48.190 --> 00:19:49.250
  • BECAUSE IN SO MANY OF
  • 00:19:49.250 --> 00:19:50.290
  • THE NATIONS WHERE WE WORK,
  • 00:19:50.290 --> 00:19:52.030

  • UNBEARABLE HEAT.
  • 00:19:55.230 --> 00:19:57.060
  • SO CHILDREN ARE THIRSTY
  • 00:19:57.060 --> 00:19:58.160
  • AND THAT'S ALL THEY HAVE
  • 00:19:58.160 --> 00:20:00.020
