  • 00:01:38.545 --> 00:01:40.713
  • Creflo: Now, let's look atthe second step here
  • 00:01:40.980 --> 00:01:43.082
  • in this process of healinga broken heart.
  • 00:01:43.116 --> 00:01:44.684
  • So the first step here isgot to acknowledge the wound.
  • 00:01:44.717 --> 00:01:47.887
  • You've got to--you've got toexamine the wound, you've got
  • 00:01:47.921 --> 00:01:51.457
  • to, you know, get with otherpeople and people that you have
  • 00:01:51.491 --> 00:01:54.527
  • good relationshipwith, somebody.
  • 00:01:54.561 --> 00:01:56.863
  • If you can't even find thatperson, then get a therapist or
  • 00:01:56.896 --> 00:01:59.866
  • somebody, somebody that can helpyou examine this wound and walk
  • 00:01:59.899 --> 00:02:02.435
  • you out of that situation.
  • 00:02:02.468 --> 00:02:04.337
  • Now, number two, now in order toheal from relational wounds of
  • 00:02:04.370 --> 00:02:09.542
  • the past, we need toidentify--number two, we need to
  • 00:02:09.576 --> 00:02:13.947
  • identify and let go of thoserelational patterns we fall into
  • 00:02:13.980 --> 00:02:20.787
  • that reopen old wounds evenin current relationships.
  • 00:02:20.820 --> 00:02:25.825
  • So the second process here is Ineed to identify and I need to
  • 00:02:25.858 --> 00:02:30.797
  • let go of those relationalpatterns that we fall into,
  • 00:02:30.830 --> 00:02:36.202
  • those relational patterns thatseem to bring us back and reopen
  • 00:02:36.236 --> 00:02:43.109
  • some of those old woundsin those relationships.
  • 00:02:43.142 --> 00:02:48.848
  • You have to begin to lookat--you have to look at what is
  • 00:02:48.881 --> 00:02:51.551
  • it--what am I doing in everyrelationship that allows me to
  • 00:02:51.584 --> 00:02:54.821
  • always end up in the same spot?
  • 00:02:54.854 --> 00:02:58.157
  • What's going on in thisrelationship, the same thing
  • 00:02:58.191 --> 00:03:01.127
  • that went on in the lastrelationship, the same thing
  • 00:03:01.160 --> 00:03:03.463
  • that's gonna--and itreopens the same wound.
  • 00:03:03.496 --> 00:03:06.132
  • You've got to identifythose things because a safe and
  • 00:03:06.165 --> 00:03:10.136
  • trusting relationship is thebest place to explore those
  • 00:03:10.169 --> 00:03:15.875
  • relational patterns.
  • 00:03:15.908 --> 00:03:17.810
  • And then, like I said before,to have a relationship, even if
  • 00:03:17.844 --> 00:03:21.581
  • it's a counselor or a trustedfriend, you need someone who
  • 00:03:21.614 --> 00:03:26.185
  • will be honest with you.
  • 00:03:26.219 --> 00:03:28.388
  • I said you need someone who willbe honest with you and can help
  • 00:03:28.421 --> 00:03:32.558
  • you get outside yourself toexamine objectively the harmful
  • 00:03:32.592 --> 00:03:38.031
  • patterns that are replacingthemselves and replaying
  • 00:03:38.064 --> 00:03:41.234
  • themselves and reoccurring in
  • 00:03:41.267 --> 00:03:43.336
  • your life over and overand over again.
  • 00:03:43.369 --> 00:03:46.105
  • Who in your life can you trustto tell you, "Dude, you keep
  • 00:03:46.139 --> 00:03:50.677
  • doing the samething over again"?
  • 00:03:50.710 --> 00:03:53.379
  • Or "You keep--you'rereplaying the same thing.
  • 00:03:53.413 --> 00:03:56.883
  • I remember when you didit, you know, ten years ago.
  • 00:03:56.916 --> 00:03:59.285
  • I remember when you did itbefore you got your divorce.
  • 00:03:59.319 --> 00:04:02.322
  • You keep doing the same thingover and over and over again."
  • 00:04:02.355 --> 00:04:05.391
  • See, when you have a supportiveand a trusted person in your
  • 00:04:05.425 --> 00:04:08.227
  • corner to talk and to praywith, that's very essential.
  • 00:04:08.261 --> 00:04:12.932
  • That's very important.
  • 00:04:12.965 --> 00:04:15.968
  • Somebody in your lifethat can confront you.
  • 00:04:16.002 --> 00:04:18.438
  • Look at Philippianschapter 3:13.
  • 00:04:18.471 --> 00:04:20.840
  • Let's look at it in theNew Living Translation.
  • 00:04:20.873 --> 00:04:22.475
  • "But that ain't Bible."
  • 00:04:22.508 --> 00:04:24.010
  • Look at Philippians 3:13in New Living Translation.
  • 00:04:24.043 --> 00:04:26.412
  • He says this.
  • 00:04:26.446 --> 00:04:27.747
  • He says, "No, dear brotheror--and sister, I have not
  • 00:04:27.780 --> 00:04:30.750
  • achieved it, but I focus on thisone thing: I'm forgetting the
  • 00:04:30.783 --> 00:04:34.587
  • past and are lookingforward to what lies ahead."
  • 00:04:34.620 --> 00:04:38.024
  • All right, so you're dealingwith somebody, they don't have
  • 00:04:38.057 --> 00:04:40.593
  • it all together.
  • 00:04:40.626 --> 00:04:42.495
  • They're, you know, theyhadn't achieved everything.
  • 00:04:42.528 --> 00:04:45.198
  • And what they're doing isthey're saying, you know, "I'm
  • 00:04:45.231 --> 00:04:47.100
  • gonna forget about some thingsand I'm gonna focus on what I
  • 00:04:47.133 --> 00:04:49.635
  • need to focus on, but I'm gonnago forward and do what I need to
  • 00:04:49.669 --> 00:04:53.806
  • do," okay?
  • 00:04:53.840 --> 00:04:55.875
  • And look at Ephesianschapter 4, verse 14 to 15.
  • 00:04:55.908 --> 00:04:59.645
  • Let's look at it in the KingJames and then the New
  • 00:04:59.679 --> 00:05:01.681
  • Living Translation.
  • 00:05:01.714 --> 00:05:03.616
  • The King James and thenthe New Living Translation.
  • 00:05:03.649 --> 00:05:07.086
  • We're gonna need support frompeople, we're gonna need to let
  • 00:05:07.120 --> 00:05:10.857
  • some things go.
  • 00:05:10.890 --> 00:05:12.658
  • Look what he says in verse 13,Ephesians chapter 4, verse 14
  • 00:05:12.692 --> 00:05:20.133
  • and 15.
  • 00:05:20.166 --> 00:05:21.467
  • Ephesians 4:14-15.
  • 00:05:21.501 --> 00:05:23.269
  • He says, "That we henceforth beno more children, tossed to and
  • 00:05:23.302 --> 00:05:26.239
  • fro, and carried about withevery wind of doctrine, by the
  • 00:05:26.272 --> 00:05:29.108
  • sleight of every--of men, andcunning craftiness, whereby they
  • 00:05:29.142 --> 00:05:34.013
  • lie in wait to deceive."
  • 00:05:34.046 --> 00:05:35.448
  • You know whatverse 14 is saying?
  • 00:05:35.481 --> 00:05:36.983
  • Stop being gullible.
  • 00:05:37.016 --> 00:05:38.718
  • Verse 14 is saying,"Stop being gullible.
  • 00:05:38.751 --> 00:05:40.586
  • Stop entering into things soquickly without taking the time
  • 00:05:40.620 --> 00:05:44.223
  • to examine it and look at it.
  • 00:05:44.257 --> 00:05:46.392
  • Stop being so gullible."
  • 00:05:46.426 --> 00:05:48.127
  • And sometimes in relationships,we're so gullible.
  • 00:05:48.161 --> 00:05:50.930
  • There are signs at the verybeginning of the relationship
  • 00:05:50.963 --> 00:05:53.132
  • that this is toxic.
  • 00:05:53.166 --> 00:05:54.834
  • There are signs at the verybeginning of the relationship
  • 00:05:54.867 --> 00:05:56.836
  • that this is not one thatyou should be involved in.
  • 00:05:56.869 --> 00:06:00.606
  • To quit being so gullible.
  • 00:06:00.640 --> 00:06:02.175
  • Don't be like children, tossedto and fro, with every wind of
  • 00:06:02.208 --> 00:06:05.144
  • doctrine," but then here's whathe says: "But speaking the truth
  • 00:06:05.178 --> 00:06:08.848
  • in love."
  • 00:06:08.881 --> 00:06:10.583
  • Do you have somebody in yourlife that can speak the truth
  • 00:06:10.616 --> 00:06:12.185
  • in love?
  • 00:06:12.218 --> 00:06:13.519
  • Not to speak the truth becausethey're trying to get back at
  • 00:06:13.553 --> 00:06:16.088
  • you or trying to get one up onyou but somebody that loves you
  • 00:06:16.122 --> 00:06:19.559
  • enough to "speak the truth inlove, that you may grow up into
  • 00:06:19.592 --> 00:06:22.695
  • him in all things, whichis the head, even Christ."
  • 00:06:22.728 --> 00:06:26.432
  • I mean, who are we todecide, you know, whether or not
  • 00:06:26.466 --> 00:06:31.003
  • somebody needs toknow the truth.
  • 00:06:31.037 --> 00:06:32.738
  • I think God can use anindividual to speak the truth to
  • 00:06:32.772 --> 00:06:36.209
  • somebody in love.
  • 00:06:36.242 --> 00:06:38.244
  • And I think that can be aturning point in a lot of
  • 00:06:38.277 --> 00:06:40.813
  • people's lives when they hearthe truth spoken to
  • 00:06:40.847 --> 00:06:43.483
  • them in love.
  • 00:06:43.516 --> 00:06:45.084
  • It can be amazing thing whensomebody tells you the truth and
  • 00:06:45.117 --> 00:06:47.820
  • you know they love you butthey tell you the truth.
  • 00:06:47.854 --> 00:06:50.756
  • We're not doing any good when wesee things as Christian brothers
  • 00:06:50.790 --> 00:06:53.926
  • and sisters and we fail tospeak the truth in love.
  • 00:06:53.960 --> 00:06:57.730
  • We don't wanna do that.
  • 00:06:57.763 --> 00:06:59.165
  • We don't wannamake that a habit.
  • 00:06:59.198 --> 00:07:01.133
  • God wants to use you to helprestore somebody and to heal
  • 00:07:01.167 --> 00:07:05.605
  • somebody's pain and toheal somebody's wound.
  • 00:07:05.638 --> 00:07:08.774
  • And sometimes, speaking thetruth in love is just what the
  • 00:07:08.808 --> 00:07:11.477
  • doctor ordered, wow.
  • 00:07:11.511 --> 00:07:14.413
  • Look at this real quickly inthe New Living Translation.
  • 00:07:14.447 --> 00:07:16.883
  • I wanna read verse 14 and 15again because, I don't know,
  • 00:07:16.916 --> 00:07:20.553
  • we've got to be careful not asChristians to say, "Well, that
  • 00:07:20.586 --> 00:07:23.222
  • ain't none of my business.
  • 00:07:23.256 --> 00:07:24.557
  • I understand what you're comingfrom but what if God is speaking
  • 00:07:24.590 --> 00:07:26.959
  • to your heart?
  • 00:07:26.993 --> 00:07:28.394
  • What if you're in thisrelationship with someone and
  • 00:07:28.427 --> 00:07:31.264
  • you're this close to someone forthe very reason that God knew
  • 00:07:31.297 --> 00:07:35.535
  • that there was gonna come a timethat he can use you to speak the
  • 00:07:35.568 --> 00:07:37.870
  • truth in love to that person.
  • 00:07:37.904 --> 00:07:39.972
  • Look what he says in NLT.
  • 00:07:40.006 --> 00:07:41.507
  • He says, "Then we will no longerbe immature like children.
  • 00:07:41.541 --> 00:07:45.144
  • We won't be tossed and blownabout by every wind
  • 00:07:45.177 --> 00:07:47.980
  • of new teaching.
  • 00:07:48.014 --> 00:07:50.049
  • We will not be influenced whenpeople try to trick us with lies
  • 00:07:50.082 --> 00:07:54.787
  • so clever theysound like the truth."
  • 00:07:54.820 --> 00:07:57.857
  • Verse 15: "Instead, we willspeak the truth in love, growing
  • 00:07:57.890 --> 00:08:01.961
  • in every way more and more likeChrist, who is the head of his
  • 00:08:01.994 --> 00:08:06.666
  • body, even the church."
  • 00:08:06.699 --> 00:08:08.634
  • Speaking the truth in love,growing more, he compares that
  • 00:08:08.668 --> 00:08:11.470
  • to Christ, "growing more andmore like Christ,"
  • 00:08:11.504 --> 00:08:13.906
  • when we do that.
  • 00:08:13.940 --> 00:08:15.541
  • And so the second process here,where getting your wounds healed
  • 00:08:15.575 --> 00:08:20.212
  • is that we've gotta locate thoserelational patterns that we fall
  • 00:08:20.246 --> 00:08:24.650
  • into that reopen those woundseven in current relationships.
  • 00:08:24.684 --> 00:08:28.988
  • Number three, now in order toexperience genuine healing and
  • 00:08:29.021 --> 00:08:32.992
  • freedom from our painful past,number three, we have to find a
  • 00:08:33.025 --> 00:08:36.929
  • way to let go of thosedangerous, insidious emotions.
  • 00:08:36.963 --> 00:08:46.973
  • We've got to find a way to letgo of some of those dangerous
  • 00:08:47.206 --> 00:08:52.678
  • emotions that wejust hold on to.
  • 00:08:52.712 --> 00:08:56.482
  • Depending upon the severityof the situation, the idea of
  • 00:08:56.515 --> 00:09:00.086
  • forgiveness may be unacceptable.
  • 00:09:00.119 --> 00:09:04.824
  • The idea of saying that you'regonna--you need to forgive
  • 00:09:04.857 --> 00:09:07.593
  • somebody that murdered a familymember, so dependent on the
  • 00:09:07.627 --> 00:09:13.332
  • severity of the situation, itmay be unacceptable yet the
  • 00:09:13.366 --> 00:09:18.771
  • reality is that the choice notto forgive somebody usually is
  • 00:09:18.804 --> 00:09:25.945
  • even more damaging.
  • 00:09:25.978 --> 00:09:28.347
  • So you do have a choice and, youknow, just seems like it's just
  • 00:09:28.381 --> 00:09:34.420
  • unreasonable to forgive somebodywho deserves or who doesn't
  • 00:09:34.453 --> 00:09:39.425
  • deserve your forgiveness.
  • 00:09:39.458 --> 00:09:41.560
  • And yet, to choose not to doit has already proven to be the
  • 00:09:41.594 --> 00:09:46.365
  • more damaging to you.
  • 00:09:46.399 --> 00:09:49.602
  • So choosing to forgive doesnot mean that we forget what
  • 00:09:49.635 --> 00:09:52.838
  • happened to us or that we excusethe person who hurt us or that
  • 00:09:52.872 --> 00:09:59.078
  • we pretend that the hurtnever happened or
  • 00:09:59.111 --> 00:10:01.881
  • that we ignore the wound.
  • 00:10:01.914 --> 00:10:04.417
  • That's not whatwe're talking about.
  • 00:10:04.450 --> 00:10:05.751
  • Forgiveness is God's way ofdealing with sinful behavior, be
  • 00:10:05.785 --> 00:10:08.988
  • it our sin orsomeone else's sin.
  • 00:10:09.021 --> 00:10:13.592
  • You see, when we forgive, letme show you about two or three
  • 00:10:13.626 --> 00:10:17.029
  • things when you do this.
  • 00:10:17.063 --> 00:10:18.364
  • When we forgive, we handourselves over to God, trusting
  • 00:10:18.397 --> 00:10:23.836
  • that God alone can restore andheal us fully and completely
  • 00:10:23.869 --> 00:10:28.774
  • when we forgive.
  • 00:10:28.808 --> 00:10:30.976
  • When we forgive, we are alsotrusting that God is totally
  • 00:10:31.010 --> 00:10:35.448
  • opposed to the evil and hesees it whenever and wherever it
  • 00:10:35.481 --> 00:10:41.487
  • occurs and so we agree with Godthat what happened to us ought
  • 00:10:41.520 --> 00:10:46.325
  • not to have happened and yetthat I trust God knows how to
  • 00:10:46.358 --> 00:10:50.396
  • deal with this better than I do.
  • 00:10:50.429 --> 00:10:53.632
  • When we forgive, we also hand
  • 00:10:53.666 --> 00:10:57.503
  • the offendingperson over to God.
  • 00:10:57.536 --> 00:11:02.541
  • Forgiveness is somethingthat's absolutely necessary.
  • 00:11:02.575 --> 00:11:06.312
  • I'll probably say itagain before I finish here.
  • 00:11:06.345 --> 00:11:08.280
  • It's absolutely necessary inorder to see restoration and
  • 00:11:08.314 --> 00:11:13.652
  • healing of woundsand broken hearts.
  • 00:11:13.686 --> 00:11:17.923
  • Forgiveness allows us to lookat ourselves honestly as broken
  • 00:11:17.957 --> 00:11:20.760
  • children of God who are
  • 00:11:20.793 --> 00:11:22.728
  • first and foremost foreverforgiven creatures.
  • 00:11:22.762 --> 00:11:27.566
  • I cannot forget that Iam forever forgiven.
  • 00:11:27.600 --> 00:11:32.404
  • I cannot forgetthat God forgave me.
  • 00:11:32.438 --> 00:11:37.409
  • Forgiveness allows us to replaceour negative responses with more
  • 00:11:37.443 --> 00:11:40.546
  • positive ones.
  • 00:11:40.579 --> 00:11:43.048
  • I can now be morepositive because I've forgiven.
  • 00:11:43.082 --> 00:11:47.319
  • Forgiveness allows us to let goof the burdens of bitterness and
  • 00:11:47.353 --> 00:11:51.724
  • resentment and to lay themat the feet of Jesus who
  • 00:11:51.757 --> 00:11:56.262
  • understands and even bears oursuffering, he bears our pain,
  • 00:11:56.295 --> 00:12:00.533
  • and by me forgiving, I am--I'mdemonstrating that, Lord, I
  • 00:12:00.566 --> 00:12:04.236
  • can't handle this and so I'mgonna take this stuff and I'm
  • 00:12:04.270 --> 00:12:06.672
  • just gonna lay it at yourfeet and let you deal with it.
  • 00:12:06.705 --> 00:12:10.810
  • Forgiveness is essentialto this process of healing.
  • 00:12:10.843 --> 00:12:15.481
  • Let's look at Ephesianschapter 4, verse 31 through 32.
  • 00:12:15.514 --> 00:12:20.252
  • Forgiveness is something thathas to be done and it requires a
  • 00:12:20.286 --> 00:12:26.725
  • supernatural ability to do itand God's already
  • 00:12:26.759 --> 00:12:28.594
  • given it to us.
  • 00:12:28.627 --> 00:12:30.529
  • He says, "Let all thebitterness, and wrath, and
  • 00:12:30.563 --> 00:12:35.267
  • anger, and clamor, all the evilspeaking, let it be put away
  • 00:12:35.301 --> 00:12:38.938
  • from you, with all malice."
  • 00:12:38.971 --> 00:12:40.906
  • Let it go.
  • 00:12:40.940 --> 00:12:42.908
  • "And be kind one to another,be tenderhearted,
  • 00:12:42.942 --> 00:12:47.413
  • forgiving one another."
  • 00:12:47.446 --> 00:12:49.181
  • How?
  • 00:12:49.215 --> 00:12:50.583
  • "Even as God for Christ'ssake hath forgiven you."
  • 00:12:50.616 --> 00:12:54.153
  • In other words, if he canforgive you, he will equip you
  • 00:12:54.186 --> 00:12:57.156
  • to be able to forgive others.
  • 00:12:57.189 --> 00:12:59.925
  • And a whole lot of thisforgiveness needs to be pointed
  • 00:12:59.959 --> 00:13:01.927
  • towards self in some cases.
  • 00:13:01.961 --> 00:13:04.630
  • In some cases, youhaven't forgiven yourself.
  • 00:13:04.663 --> 00:13:07.833
  • And until you forgive yourself,it's gonna be real difficult for
  • 00:13:07.867 --> 00:13:10.402
  • you to forgive other people.
  • 00:13:10.436 --> 00:13:12.605
  • And one of the things we beginto understand that if God has
  • 00:13:12.638 --> 00:13:15.307
  • already forgiven me, then Imight as well go ahead and
  • 00:13:15.341 --> 00:13:16.976
  • forgive myself.
  • 00:13:17.009 --> 00:13:18.310
  • I'm just wasting my time holdingthings against me when God's
  • 00:13:18.344 --> 00:13:20.312
  • already forgiven me.
  • 00:13:20.346 --> 00:13:23.482
  • And then once you beginto receive forgiveness for
  • 00:13:23.515 --> 00:13:25.885
  • yourself, then you begin toreceive forgiveness for other
  • 00:13:25.918 --> 00:13:28.187
  • people and you put awaybitterness and you put away evil
  • 00:13:28.220 --> 00:13:31.390
  • speaking and you put away allof the stuff you've been holding
  • 00:13:31.423 --> 00:13:34.193
  • all of this time and it's notdone anything but kept you back.
  • 00:13:34.226 --> 00:13:38.697
  • I mean, holding on to somethingthat somebody did to you,
  • 00:13:38.731 --> 00:13:40.866
  • somebody said to you,way somebody treated you.
  • 00:13:40.900 --> 00:13:44.603
  • Until you lay that at the feetof Jesus, all it's gonna do is
  • 00:13:44.637 --> 00:13:47.439
  • hold you back and keep you fromthe next level and the next step
  • 00:13:47.473 --> 00:13:51.610
  • that God hasplanned for your life.
  • 00:13:51.644 --> 00:13:53.245
  • Keep you from the thingthat you were called to do.
  • 00:13:53.279 --> 00:13:55.214
  • Keep you from the thing that Godhas allowed you to be born on
  • 00:13:55.247 --> 00:13:58.117
  • the earth to do becauseyou just can't let it go.
  • 00:13:58.150 --> 00:14:02.187
  • And I'm telling you, it is
  • 00:14:02.221 --> 00:14:03.923
  • essential to thehealing process.
  • 00:14:03.956 --> 00:14:06.926
  • It is very, very important.
  • 00:14:06.959 --> 00:14:08.794
  • Don't wait until you're 60before you decide
  • 00:14:08.827 --> 00:14:11.597
  • to let things go.
  • 00:14:11.630 --> 00:14:13.532
  • Remember what I say, and rightnow I'm saying it a lot lately.
  • 00:14:13.565 --> 00:14:16.669
  • If it costs you yourpeace, it's too expensive.
  • 00:14:16.702 --> 00:14:19.438
  • And walking inunforgiveness, it cost.
  • 00:14:19.471 --> 00:14:22.174
  • It costs you your peace.
  • 00:14:22.207 --> 00:14:24.176
  • Forgiveness requires us to admitthat a wrong was done to us, and
  • 00:14:24.209 --> 00:14:30.049
  • it's okay to admit that, butit's also okay to recognize that
  • 00:14:30.082 --> 00:14:34.520
  • I can take that and give it toGod and he can begin to correct
  • 00:14:34.553 --> 00:14:37.589
  • it and do what needs to be done.
  • 00:14:37.623 --> 00:14:40.526
  • So by constantly blamingourselves for wounds that were
  • 00:14:40.559 --> 00:14:44.863
  • inflicted by others and that'swhat happens sometimes, we blame
  • 00:14:44.897 --> 00:14:47.666
  • ourselves for the wounds thatwere inflicted by other people.
  • 00:14:47.700 --> 00:14:52.972
  • What are we doing?
  • 00:14:53.005 --> 00:14:54.306
  • We're keeping ourselves fromfinding real freedom 'cause at
  • 00:14:54.340 --> 00:14:57.743
  • the end of the day, you startblaming yourself, "Well, it's--
  • 00:14:57.776 --> 00:14:59.311
  • I did it.
  • 00:14:59.345 --> 00:15:00.646
  • I did it."
  • 00:15:00.679 --> 00:15:01.981
  • I'm sure you might have had apart to play in that but, you
  • 00:15:02.014 --> 00:15:03.916
  • know, blaming yourself all thetime, that's not gonna--that's
  • 00:15:03.949 --> 00:15:05.884
  • not gonna help you to heal.
  • 00:15:05.918 --> 00:15:08.087
  • You see, sometimes in theprocess of trying to manage our
  • 00:15:08.120 --> 00:15:11.390
  • own pain, we end upwounding other people.
  • 00:15:11.423 --> 00:15:16.795
  • And when we try to manage ourown pain and manage our own
  • 00:15:16.829 --> 00:15:19.531
  • wounds, we end up--we endup hurting other people.
  • 00:15:19.565 --> 00:15:22.768
  • And not only do we blameourselves for our own wounds and
  • 00:15:22.801 --> 00:15:26.138
  • hurts but many of us also feelresentful and angry towards God.
  • 00:15:26.171 --> 00:15:31.610
  • You see how the process goes?
  • 00:15:31.643 --> 00:15:34.880
  • You begin to get to a pointwhere you're so angry at God and
  • 00:15:34.913 --> 00:15:37.483
  • now it's his fault and you'remad at the only one
  • 00:15:37.516 --> 00:15:41.120
  • that can help you.
  • 00:15:41.153 --> 00:15:43.222
  • You're upset at the only onethat can bring you
  • 00:15:43.255 --> 00:15:46.025
  • out of your situation.
  • 00:15:46.058 --> 00:15:48.694
  • So we've got to--we've got tolet go of those emotions that
  • 00:15:48.727 --> 00:15:53.866
  • have kept us trapped.
  • 00:15:53.899 --> 00:15:56.635
  • We've gotta let go of it.
  • 00:15:56.668 --> 00:15:58.003
  • We've gotto--we've gotta forgive.
  • 00:15:58.037 --> 00:16:00.839
  • We have got to forgiveourselves, we've gotta forgive
  • 00:16:00.873 --> 00:16:03.776
  • others, we've gotta forgive God.
  • 00:16:03.809 --> 00:16:07.880
  • And I'm not saying it's gonna bea piece of cake, but what I am
  • 00:16:07.913 --> 00:16:10.449
  • saying is if you'll do thisyou remove the debris out of the
  • 00:16:10.482 --> 00:16:15.187
  • pathway that brings you to theplace where God wants you to be
  • 00:16:15.220 --> 00:16:18.524
  • in your life.
  • 00:16:18.557 --> 00:16:20.859
  • And there's the fourth step inthis process of wound healing.
  • 00:16:20.893 --> 00:16:24.263
  • The key to genuine healing frompast relational wounds is to
  • 00:16:24.296 --> 00:16:27.866
  • find the courage toreally love again.
  • 00:16:27.900 --> 00:16:31.970
  • To find the courageto really love again.
  • 00:16:32.004 --> 00:16:38.277
  • In this step, not only are yougonna find the courage to love
  • 00:16:38.310 --> 00:16:42.014
  • again, which is a risk, but tofind the courage to take risk.
  • 00:16:42.047 --> 00:16:46.051
  • To find the courageto make mistakes.
  • 00:16:46.085 --> 00:16:49.088
  • To find the courageto be vulnerable.
  • 00:16:49.121 --> 00:16:53.926
  • And to do all ofthat with other people.
  • 00:16:53.959 --> 00:16:56.962
  • It's gonna take courage.
  • 00:16:56.995 --> 00:16:59.064
  • Courage to be vulnerable withother people, courage to be
  • 00:16:59.098 --> 00:17:01.300
  • vulnerable with yourself,courage to be vulnerable with
  • 00:17:01.333 --> 00:17:05.037
  • your God.
  • 00:17:05.070 --> 00:17:08.340
  • You gotta figure outhow to love again.
  • 00:17:08.373 --> 00:17:10.008
  • You gotta figure outhow to live again.
  • 00:17:10.042 --> 00:17:11.443
  • You gotta figureout how to take risk.
  • 00:17:11.477 --> 00:17:13.712
  • You gotta figure out, youknow, how to make mistakes.
  • 00:17:13.745 --> 00:17:17.783
  • Gotta stop beating yourselfup and you have to make that
  • 00:17:17.816 --> 00:17:22.321
  • decision, "I'm not gonnabe afraid to love again.
  • 00:17:22.354 --> 00:17:25.524
  • I'm not gonna beafraid to trust again.
  • 00:17:25.557 --> 00:17:26.925
  • I'm not gonna beafraid to take risk."
  • 00:17:26.959 --> 00:17:28.760
  • I mean, if you're sitting inthe house all day because you're
  • 00:17:28.794 --> 00:17:30.596
  • afraid of all the risks that aregoing on, we've gotta make some
  • 00:17:30.629 --> 00:17:34.299
  • decisions, man.
  • 00:17:34.333 --> 00:17:36.235
  • We've gotta make some decisions.
  • 00:17:36.268 --> 00:17:38.437
  • Now, I'm not talking about, youknow, doing something stupid and
  • 00:17:38.470 --> 00:17:41.140
  • say, "Well, Pastor said take arisk so I'm gonna step off the
  • 00:17:41.173 --> 00:17:43.542
  • building and see ifI can fall and die."
  • 00:17:43.575 --> 00:17:46.078
  • I ain't talking about that.
  • 00:17:46.111 --> 00:17:47.579
  • You know what I'm talking about.
  • 00:17:47.613 --> 00:17:49.314
  • I'm talking about in theserelationships where relational
  • 00:17:49.348 --> 00:17:51.717
  • hurt and wounds have come thatyou're saying, "I trust my God
  • 00:17:51.750 --> 00:17:54.620
  • and that there are--thereis somebody out there."
  • 00:17:54.653 --> 00:17:58.524
  • "Well, there ain'tnobody out there."
  • 00:17:58.557 --> 00:18:00.225
  • Yeah, there issomebody out there.
  • 00:18:00.259 --> 00:18:01.693
  • There are people that areavailable, there are people that
  • 00:18:01.727 --> 00:18:04.663
  • will be sent to you by God.
  • 00:18:04.696 --> 00:18:06.899
  • Somehow, someway, you mightneed to clean up your own
  • 00:18:06.932 --> 00:18:09.501
  • expectations of, you know, thetype of people that you wanna be
  • 00:18:09.535 --> 00:18:13.071
  • around and you're pushing awaythe ones that can end up to be
  • 00:18:13.105 --> 00:18:16.441
  • your greatest blessing becausethey don't wear the tight
  • 00:18:16.475 --> 00:18:19.845
  • clothes you wear or all thatkind of stuff or maybe they're
  • 00:18:19.878 --> 00:18:22.948
  • not the same color you are.
  • 00:18:22.981 --> 00:18:24.917
  • You've gotta be careful notto push away God-sent people,
  • 00:18:24.950 --> 00:18:28.453
  • people that God sends into your
  • 00:18:28.487 --> 00:18:31.023
  • life to be a blessing toyour life, amen?
  • 00:18:31.056 --> 00:18:34.226
  • So now I wanna review this.
  • 00:18:34.259 --> 00:18:36.929

  • Somebody says, "Well,how do you find them?"
  • 00:22:40.739 --> 00:22:42.240
  • You start off, "God, bringthese people into my life.
  • 00:22:42.274 --> 00:22:44.309
  • Show me my tribe."
  • 00:22:44.342 --> 00:22:46.511
  • You know, you don't have to justresolve that you're gonna be by
  • 00:22:46.545 --> 00:22:50.315
  • yourself, "Well, I'm weirdand I'm a introvert and nobody
  • 00:22:50.348 --> 00:22:54.052
  • understands me."
  • 00:22:54.085 --> 00:22:55.387
  • Don't play that with yourself.
  • 00:22:55.420 --> 00:22:58.557
  • You were created relationaljust like God and he has those
  • 00:22:58.590 --> 00:23:03.161
  • relationships readyand prepared for you.
  • 00:23:03.195 --> 00:23:05.297
  • You know, we use ourfaith to get healed.
  • 00:23:05.330 --> 00:23:06.798
  • We use our faithto get a promotion.
  • 00:23:06.832 --> 00:23:08.133
  • We use our faith--use your faithfor relationships and for the
  • 00:23:08.166 --> 00:23:12.304
  • right people to come aroundyou and to be around you.
  • 00:23:12.337 --> 00:23:16.608
  • Number eight, learn how andask God to help you to
  • 00:23:16.641 --> 00:23:20.979
  • love unconditionally.
  • 00:23:21.012 --> 00:23:22.481
  • Learn what it means tolove unconditionally.
  • 00:23:22.514 --> 00:23:24.783
  • There are too many Christianpeople, we have been trained to
  • 00:23:24.816 --> 00:23:26.885
  • love conditionally.
  • 00:23:26.918 --> 00:23:28.620
  • "I love you when thesethings are in the right place.
  • 00:23:28.653 --> 00:23:30.188
  • I love you whenyou're acting like this.
  • 00:23:30.222 --> 00:23:31.723
  • I love you when thingsare going this way."
  • 00:23:31.756 --> 00:23:33.692
  • But loving unconditionally meansI'm gonna love you and if you do
  • 00:23:33.725 --> 00:23:36.661
  • stupid stuff, I'mstill gonna be there.
  • 00:23:36.695 --> 00:23:39.097
  • I'm gonna love you if youget your butt put in jail.
  • 00:23:39.130 --> 00:23:41.199
  • I am there 'cause Ilove unconditionally.
  • 00:23:41.233 --> 00:23:45.203
  • Man, we don'tknow how to do that.
  • 00:23:45.237 --> 00:23:46.538
  • We don't know how tolove when it's hard.
  • 00:23:46.571 --> 00:23:48.974
  • And, of course, God will addwisdom to all of that but you've
  • 00:23:49.007 --> 00:23:52.344
  • got to know whatI'm talking about.
  • 00:23:52.377 --> 00:23:53.945
  • You know, love is a gift and tolove somebody unconditionally is
  • 00:23:53.979 --> 00:23:56.114
  • a gift and that love wasprobably gonna be something that
  • 00:23:56.147 --> 00:24:00.785
  • you begin to grow into.
  • 00:24:00.819 --> 00:24:02.387
  • We just beat too much of ourown people up and throw 'em away
  • 00:24:02.420 --> 00:24:08.894
  • when they need--they need love.
  • 00:24:08.927 --> 00:24:10.962
  • It's just something that happenswhen you can love somebody that
  • 00:24:10.996 --> 00:24:15.100
  • everybody else has decided notto love because brokenness, like
  • 00:24:15.133 --> 00:24:17.969
  • I said before, people arereally--they throw
  • 00:24:18.003 --> 00:24:22.607
  • away what's broken.
  • 00:24:22.641 --> 00:24:24.409
  • They reject what's broken.
  • 00:24:24.442 --> 00:24:26.177
  • When something has a fracture,they don't wanna have anything
  • 00:24:26.211 --> 00:24:28.446
  • to do with it.
  • 00:24:28.480 --> 00:24:30.315
  • And I think God has given us theministry of reconciliation and
  • 00:24:30.348 --> 00:24:33.885
  • we've got to learn howto love unconditional.
  • 00:24:33.919 --> 00:24:37.055
  • Lord, teach me and I'mpraying this prayer for myself.
