  • ONE OF YOU.
  • 00:00:17.000 --> 00:00:18.080
  • IF YOU'RE EVER IN OUR AREA STOP
  • 00:00:18.080 --> 00:00:19.100
  • BY AND BE A PART OF ONE OF OUR
  • 00:00:19.100 --> 00:00:20.170

  • THANK YOU AGAIN FOR
  • 00:00:25.170 --> 00:00:26.090
  • COMING OUT.
  • 00:00:26.090 --> 00:00:27.070
  • I LIKE TO START WITH SOMETHING
  • 00:00:27.070 --> 00:00:28.060
  • FUNNY.
  • 00:00:28.060 --> 00:00:29.000
  • I HEARD ABOUT THESE THREE SONS
  • 00:00:29.000 --> 00:00:30.080
  • THAT LEFT HOME AND WENT OUT AND
  • 00:00:30.080 --> 00:00:31.150
  • PROSPERED.
  • 00:00:31.150 --> 00:00:32.280
  • ONE DAY THEY GOT BACK TOGETHER
  • 00:00:32.280 --> 00:00:34.040
  • TO DISCUSS THE GIFTS THAT THEY
  • 00:00:34.040 --> 00:00:36.010
  • BOUGHT THEIR ELDERLY MOTHER.
  • 00:00:36.010 --> 00:00:37.270
  • THE FIRST SON SAID, "I BUILT
  • 00:00:37.270 --> 00:00:39.150
  • MOTHER A BIG HOUSE."
  • 00:00:39.150 --> 00:00:41.210
  • THE SECOND SON SAID, "I GOT HER
  • 00:00:41.210 --> 00:00:42.270
  • A FANCY CAR."
  • 00:00:42.270 --> 00:00:45.030
  • THE THIRD ONE SAID, "SINCE I
  • 00:00:45.030 --> 00:00:46.100
  • KNOW HOW MUCH MOTHER LOVES TO
  • 00:00:46.100 --> 00:00:47.220
  • READ THE BIBLE, BUT SHE CAN
  • 00:00:47.220 --> 00:00:49.020
  • BARELY SEE NOW, I GOT HER A
  • 00:00:49.020 --> 00:00:50.160
  • SPECIALLY TRAINED PARROT THAT
  • 00:00:50.160 --> 00:00:52.270
  • CAN QUOTE THE ENTIRE BIBLE."
  • 00:00:52.270 --> 00:00:54.260
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:00:54.260 --> 00:00:56.020
  • IN A FEW DAYS THEY GOT A LETTER
  • 00:00:56.020 --> 00:00:57.060
  • FROM THEIR MOTHER.
  • 00:00:57.060 --> 00:00:58.030
  • IT SAID, "MILTON, THE HOUSE YOU
  • 00:00:58.030 --> 00:00:59.010
  • BUILT ME IS WAY TOO BIG.
  • 00:00:59.010 --> 00:01:00.210
  • GERALD, THE CAR YOU BOUGHT ME
  • 00:01:00.210 --> 00:01:01.270
  • IS WAY TOO SMALL.
  • 00:01:01.270 --> 00:01:03.040
  • BUT MY DEAREST DONALD, YOUR
  • 00:01:03.040 --> 00:01:04.130
  • SIMPLE GIFT IS MY FAVORITE.
  • 00:01:04.130 --> 00:01:06.220
  • THE CHICKEN WAS DELICIOUS."
  • 00:01:06.220 --> 00:01:08.120
  • (LAUGHTER/APPLAUSE)
  • 00:01:08.120 --> 00:01:10.200
  • HOLD UP YOUR BIBLES.
  • 00:01:10.200 --> 00:01:11.120
  • SAY IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT.
  • 00:01:11.120 --> 00:01:12.100
  • THIS IS MY BIBLE.
  • 00:01:12.100 --> 00:01:13.270
  • I AM WHAT IT SAYS I AM.
  • 00:01:13.270 --> 00:01:15.120
  • I HAVE WHAT IT SAYS I HAVE.
  • 00:01:15.120 --> 00:01:17.120
  • I CAN DO WHAT IT SAYS I CAN DO.
  • 00:01:17.120 --> 00:01:19.080
  • TODAY I WILL BE TAUGHT THE WORD
  • 00:01:19.080 --> 00:01:20.250
  • OF GOD.
  • 00:01:20.250 --> 00:01:22.060
  • I BOLDLY CONFESS:
  • 00:01:22.060 --> 00:01:24.010
  • MY MIND IS ALERT.
  • 00:01:24.010 --> 00:01:24.260
  • MY HEART IS RECEPTIVE.
  • 00:01:24.260 --> 00:01:26.030
  • IN JESUS' NAME. GOD BLESS YOU.
  • 00:01:28.250 --> 00:01:31.250
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU TODAY
  • 00:01:31.250 --> 00:01:32.260
  • ABOUT THE POWER OF LETTING GO.
  • 00:01:32.260 --> 00:01:34.280
  • WE ALL GO THROUGH
  • 00:01:34.280 --> 00:01:36.240
  • DISAPPOINTMENTS AND SETBACKS AND
  • 00:01:36.240 --> 00:01:37.250
  • THINGS THAT WE DON'T UNDERSTAND.
  • 00:01:37.250 --> 00:01:39.240
  • MAYBE YOU PRAYED FOR A LOVED ONE
  • 00:01:39.240 --> 00:01:41.220
  • BUT THEY DIDN'T GET WELL.
  • 00:01:41.220 --> 00:01:43.220
  • A PROMOTION BUT YOU DIDN'T GET
  • 00:01:45.080 --> 00:01:46.100
  • IT.
  • 00:01:46.100 --> 00:01:47.170
  • YOU STOOD IN FAITH FOR A
  • 00:01:47.170 --> 00:01:48.200
  • RELATIONSHIP BUT IT DIDN'T WORK
  • 00:01:48.200 --> 00:01:49.270
  • OUT.
  • 00:01:49.270 --> 00:01:51.100
  • ONE OF THE BEST THINGS YOU CAN
  • 00:01:51.100 --> 00:01:52.110
  • DO IS RELEASE IT. LET IT GO.
  • 00:01:52.140 --> 00:01:55.140
  • IF YOU GO AROUND DWELLING ON IT,
  • 00:01:55.140 --> 00:01:58.040
  • WONDERING WHY THIS DIDN'T WORK
  • 00:01:58.040 --> 00:01:59.020
  • OUT, WHY MY LOVED ONE DIDN'T GET
  • 00:01:59.020 --> 00:02:00.020
  • HEALED, WHY I DIDN'T GET THAT
  • 00:02:00.020 --> 00:02:01.240
  • PROMOTION, ALL THAT'S GOING TO
  • 00:02:01.240 --> 00:02:03.150
  • DO IS LEAD TO BITTERNESS,
  • 00:02:03.150 --> 00:02:05.090
  • RESENTMENT, SELF-PITY.
  • 00:02:05.090 --> 00:02:07.190
  • BEFORE LONG YOU'LL BE BLAMING
  • 00:02:07.190 --> 00:02:08.250
  • OTHERS, BLAMING YOURSELF, MAYBE
  • 00:02:08.250 --> 00:02:10.080
  • EVEN BLAMING GOD.
  • 00:02:10.080 --> 00:02:12.240
  • YOU MAY NOT HAVE UNDERSTOOD IT.
  • 00:02:12.240 --> 00:02:14.140
  • IT MAY NOT HAVE BEEN FAIR.
  • 00:02:14.140 --> 00:02:16.050
  • BUT WHEN YOU RELEASE IT,
  • 00:02:16.050 --> 00:02:17.210
  • IT'S AN ACT OF YOUR FAITH.
  • 00:02:17.210 --> 00:02:19.230
  • YOU'RE SAYING, "GOD, I TRUST
  • 00:02:19.230 --> 00:02:21.070
  • YOU. I KNOW YOU'RE IN CONTROL.
  • 00:02:21.070 --> 00:02:23.100
  • AND EVEN THOUGH IT DIDN'T WORK
  • 00:02:23.100 --> 00:02:25.100
  • OUT MY WAY, YOU SAID, 'ALL
  • 00:02:25.100 --> 00:02:26.210
  • THINGS ARE GOING TO WORK
  • 00:02:26.210 --> 00:02:28.040
  • TOGETHER FOR MY GOOD.'
  • 00:02:28.040 --> 00:02:30.010
  • SO I BELIEVE YOU STILL HAVE
  • 00:02:30.010 --> 00:02:31.130
  • SOMETHING GOOD IN MY FUTURE."
  • 00:02:31.130 --> 00:02:33.090
  • THERE IS POWER IN LETTING GO.
  • 00:02:33.090 --> 00:02:36.020
  • NOT LETTING GO OF YOUR DREAMS.
  • 00:02:36.020 --> 00:02:38.010
  • DON'T LET GO OF YOUR PROMISES.
  • 00:02:38.010 --> 00:02:39.260
  • LET GO OF THE FRUSTRATION OF
  • 00:02:39.260 --> 00:02:41.260
  • TAKE YOUR HANDS OFF THE WHEEL
  • 00:02:44.000 --> 00:02:45.260
  • AND SAY, "OKAY, GOD. I'M GOING
  • 00:02:45.260 --> 00:02:47.050
  • TO LET YOU DRIVE. YOU KNOW THE
  • 00:02:47.050 --> 00:02:49.040
  • BEST PATH FOR MY LIFE. YOU CAN
  • 00:02:49.040 --> 00:02:50.210
  • SEE THE DETOURS, THE DEAD ENDS.
  • 00:02:50.210 --> 00:02:53.120
  • YOU KNOW THE SHORTCUTS.
  • 00:02:53.120 --> 00:02:55.010
  • GOD, I'M GOING TO LET YOU TAKE
  • 00:02:55.010 --> 00:02:56.120
  • THAT'S A VERY FREEING WAY
  • 00:02:58.050 --> 00:02:59.170
  • TO LIVE.
  • 00:02:59.170 --> 00:03:00.230
  • BUT SO OFTEN WE'LL TRUST GOD,
  • 00:03:00.230 --> 00:03:02.150
  • WE'LL STAY IN FAITH, AS LONG AS
  • 00:03:02.150 --> 00:03:04.020
  • GOD DOES IT OUR WAY.
  • 00:03:04.020 --> 00:03:06.030
  • IT'S LIKE THIS MOUNTAIN CLIMBER
  • 00:03:06.030 --> 00:03:07.180
  • I HEARD ABOUT.
  • 00:03:07.180 --> 00:03:08.240
  • HE WAS CLIMBING UP THIS HUGE
  • 00:03:08.240 --> 00:03:10.020
  • CLIFF, ALMOST TO THE TOP,
  • 00:03:10.020 --> 00:03:12.000
  • WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN HE LOST
  • 00:03:12.000 --> 00:03:13.100
  • HIS FOOTING AND BEGAN TO FALL.
  • 00:03:13.100 --> 00:03:15.080
  • HE REACHED OUT AND MIRACULOUSLY
  • 00:03:15.080 --> 00:03:16.220
  • GRABBED A BUSH GROWING OUT OF
  • 00:03:16.220 --> 00:03:18.190
  • HUNDREDS OF FEET IN THE AIR,F
  • 00:03:20.110 --> 00:03:22.070
  • HOLDING ON FOR DEAR LIFE.
  • 00:03:22.070 --> 00:03:23.290
  • HE SHOUTED OUT, "IS ANYBODY UP
  • 00:03:23.290 --> 00:03:25.080
  • THERE?"
  • 00:03:25.080 --> 00:03:27.070
  • IN A FEW SECONDS A VOICE BOOMED
  • 00:03:27.070 --> 00:03:28.190
  • OUT OF THE HEAVENS AND SAID,
  • 00:03:28.190 --> 00:03:30.070
  • "YES. I'M HERE. WHAT DO YOU
  • 00:03:30.070 --> 00:03:31.050
  • NEED?"
  • 00:03:31.050 --> 00:03:32.200
  • HE SAID, "GOD, I CAN'T HOLD ON
  • 00:03:32.200 --> 00:03:33.280
  • GOD SAID, "OKAY, SON. TURN
  • 00:03:36.080 --> 00:03:37.160
  • LOOSE OF THE BUSH AND I'LL
  • 00:03:37.160 --> 00:03:38.280
  • CATCH YOU."
  • 00:03:38.280 --> 00:03:40.270
  • AFTER A LONG PAUSE THE MAN
  • 00:03:40.270 --> 00:03:42.120
  • SAID, "IS THERE ANYBODY ELSE UP
  • 00:03:42.120 --> 00:03:43.250
  • THAT'S THE WAY WE DO MANYLSE UP
  • 00:03:45.250 --> 00:03:47.200
  • TIMES.
  • 00:03:47.200 --> 00:03:49.030
  • "GOD, HELP ME BUT DO IT MY WAY,
  • 00:03:49.030 --> 00:03:51.070
  • THE WAY I HAVE PLANNED; THE WAY
  • 00:03:51.070 --> 00:03:52.190
  • I WANT."
  • 00:03:52.190 --> 00:03:54.110
  • NO, IN ORDER FOR GOD TO HELP US
  • 00:03:54.110 --> 00:03:55.280
  • WE'VE GOT TO BE WILLING TO LET
  • 00:03:55.280 --> 00:03:57.020
  • GO.
  • 00:03:57.020 --> 00:03:58.170
  • MAYBE SOMETHING DIDN'T WORK OUT
  • 00:03:58.170 --> 00:03:59.250
  • YOUR WAY.
  • 00:03:59.250 --> 00:04:01.170
  • INSTEAD OF BEING FRUSTRATED WHY
  • 00:04:01.170 --> 00:04:03.150
  • MAYBE GOD HAS SOMETHING BETTER
  • 00:04:05.180 --> 00:04:07.030
  • IN STORE.
  • 00:04:07.030 --> 00:04:08.140
  • MAYBE GOD CLOSED THE DOOR
  • 00:04:08.140 --> 00:04:10.180
  • BECAUSE YOU'RE BELIEVING TOO
  • 00:04:10.180 --> 00:04:11.240
  • SMALL.
  • 00:04:11.240 --> 00:04:13.120
  • MAYBE IT DIDN'T WORK OUT BECAUSE
  • 00:04:13.120 --> 00:04:14.180
  • WHAT YOU'RE PRAYING FOR WOULD BE
  • 00:04:14.180 --> 00:04:16.040
  • SECOND BEST AND GOD LOVES YOU
  • 00:04:16.040 --> 00:04:19.020
  • TOO MUCH TO DO IT YOUR WAY.
  • 00:04:19.020 --> 00:04:20.270
  • THE QUESTION IS WILL YOU TRUST
  • 00:04:20.270 --> 00:04:22.050
  • HIM TO DO IT HIS WAY?
  • 00:04:22.050 --> 00:04:24.050
  • WILL YOU TAKE YOUR HANDS OFF
  • 00:04:24.050 --> 00:04:25.020
  • THE WHEEL AND LET HIM DO THE
  • 00:04:25.020 --> 00:04:26.110
  • DRIVING?
  • 00:04:26.110 --> 00:04:27.290
  • A FEW YEARS AFTER VICTORIA AND
  • 00:04:27.290 --> 00:04:29.090
  • I WERE MARRIED WE FOUND THIS
  • 00:04:29.090 --> 00:04:30.180
  • HOUSE THAT WE REALLY WANTED
  • 00:04:30.180 --> 00:04:31.200
  • IT WAS ON A BEAUTIFUL LOT, IT
  • 00:04:33.050 --> 00:04:34.090
  • HAD BIG TREES, HAD A SWIMMING
  • 00:04:34.090 --> 00:04:35.200
  • POOL.
  • 00:04:35.200 --> 00:04:36.210
  • THIS WAS OUR DREAM HOUSE.
  • 00:04:36.210 --> 00:04:38.130
  • WE WERE SURE IT WAS SUPPOSED TO
  • 00:04:38.130 --> 00:04:39.150
  • BE OURS.
  • 00:04:39.150 --> 00:04:40.280
  • WE MADE A VERY STRONG OFFER JUST
  • 00:04:40.280 --> 00:04:43.040
  • A LITTLE LESS THAN THEY WERE
  • 00:04:43.040 --> 00:04:44.170
  • ASKING.
  • 00:04:44.170 --> 00:04:45.270
  • WEEK AFTER WEEK STILL NOTHING.
  • 00:04:47.080 --> 00:04:49.000
  • NOBODY LIVED IN THE HOUSE SO WE
  • 00:04:49.000 --> 00:04:51.080
  • WOULD GO OUT PRACTICALLY EVERY
  • 00:04:51.080 --> 00:04:52.210
  • DAY AND PRAY OVER THE HOUSE.
  • 00:04:52.210 --> 00:04:55.210
  • WE WOULD EVEN MARCH AROUND IT
  • 00:04:55.210 --> 00:04:57.080
  • LIKE THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL GOING
  • 00:04:57.080 --> 00:04:59.120
  • AROUND JERICHO. (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:04:59.120 --> 00:05:00.230
  • WE WOULD QUOTE SCRIPTURES.
  • 00:05:00.230 --> 00:05:01.290
  • WE WOULD BIND. WE WOULD LOOSE.
  • 00:05:01.290 --> 00:05:03.110
  • WE'D SING. WE'D SHOUT. WE'D
  • 00:05:03.110 --> 00:05:04.160
  • DANCE. WE DID THE HOLY
  • 00:05:04.160 --> 00:05:05.160
  • MACARENA. (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:05:05.160 --> 00:05:06.250
  • AS FAR AS WE WERE CONCERNED
  • 00:05:06.250 --> 00:05:08.200
  • THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE OUR
  • 00:05:08.200 --> 00:05:10.130
  • HOUSE. OUR MIND WAS MADE UP.
  • 00:05:10.130 --> 00:05:13.010
  • WE WERE CONSUMED BY IT.
  • 00:05:13.010 --> 00:05:14.170
  • ABOUT THREE WEEKS LATER OUR
  • 00:05:14.170 --> 00:05:15.190
  • REALTOR CALLED AND SAID, "I'M
  • 00:05:15.190 --> 00:05:16.260
  • SORRY. THEY SOLD THE HOUSE TO
  • 00:05:16.260 --> 00:05:18.150
  • SOMEBODY ELSE."
  • 00:05:18.150 --> 00:05:19.240
  • WE WERE SO DISAPPOINTED.
  • 00:05:19.240 --> 00:05:21.000
  • WE THOUGHT, "GOD, WE PRAYED.
  • 00:05:21.000 --> 00:05:22.120
  • WE BELIEVED. WE STOOD IN FAITH.
  • 00:05:22.120 --> 00:05:24.170
  • WHAT HAPPENED?"
  • 00:05:24.170 --> 00:05:25.210
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS, "GOD'S WAYS
  • 00:05:25.210 --> 00:05:27.090
  • ARE NOT OUR WAYS. THEY ARE

  • SOMETIMES WHAT WE'RE BELIEVING
  • 00:05:34.220 --> 00:05:37.220
  • FOR IS NOT GOD'S BEST.
  • 00:05:37.220 --> 00:05:38.230
  • WE HAVE GOOD INTENTIONS BUT
  • 00:05:38.230 --> 00:05:39.290
  • GOD LOVES US TOO MUCH TO ANSWER
  • 00:05:39.290 --> 00:05:40.280
  • THAT PRAYER.
  • 00:05:40.280 --> 00:05:42.000
  • I'VE FOUND ANYTHING YOU HAVE TO

  • HAVE IN ORDER TO BE HAPPY IS OUT

  • OF BALANCE.
  • 00:05:45.090 --> 00:05:47.170
  • IF YOU HAVE TO HAVE THAT HOUSE,
  • 00:05:47.170 --> 00:05:49.070
  • YOU HAVE TO HAVE THAT

  • PROMOTION, YOU HAVE TO MEET
  • 00:05:51.050 --> 00:05:52.020
  • THAT PERSON;

  • YOU'RE PUTTING TOO MUCH

  • EMPHASIS ON IT.
  • 00:05:54.000 --> 00:05:55.020
  • IT'S GOOD TO HAVE DREAMS.
  • 00:05:55.020 --> 00:05:56.030
  • IT'S GOOD TO HAVE GOALS, TO

  • DETERMINED.

  • ENOUGH TO PUT THAT DREAM ON THE

  • MY LIFE IS IN YOUR HANDS."
  • 00:06:18.290 --> 00:06:21.040
  • WE FELT LIKE GOD HAD LET US
  • 00:06:23.230 --> 00:06:24.270
  • DOWN.
  • 00:06:24.270 --> 00:06:26.150
  • THE WIND WAS TAKEN OUT OF OUR
  • 00:06:26.150 --> 00:06:27.170
  • SAILS.
  • 00:06:27.170 --> 00:06:29.060
  • EVENTUALLY, WE DID WHAT I'M
  • 00:06:29.060 --> 00:06:30.070
  • ASKING YOU TO DO.
  • 00:06:30.070 --> 00:06:31.170
  • WE LET IT GO AND SAID, "GOD,
  • 00:06:31.170 --> 00:06:32.160
  • YOU KNOW WHAT'S BEST FOR US."
  • 00:06:32.160 --> 00:06:33.250
  • ABOUT THREE WEEKS LATER WE CAME
  • 00:06:33.250 --> 00:06:35.110
  • ACROSS THIS OLDER RUNDOWN HOME
  • 00:06:35.280 --> 00:06:38.280
  • IN A NICE NEIGHBORHOOD, CLOSE
  • 00:06:38.280 --> 00:06:40.140
  • JUST FELL INTO PLACE.
  • 00:06:41.230 --> 00:06:43.090
  • WE ENDED UP BUYING THAT HOUSE.
  • 00:06:43.090 --> 00:06:44.270
  • WE FIXED IT UP AND LIVED THERE
  • 00:06:44.270 --> 00:06:46.130
  • FOR TWO YEARS AND THEN WE SOLD
  • 00:06:46.130 --> 00:06:47.200
  • IT FOR TWICE WHAT WE HAD PAID
  • 00:06:47.200 --> 00:06:48.240
  • FOR IT.
  • 00:06:48.240 --> 00:06:50.150
  • BUT THAT OLDER HOME TO US IT
  • 00:06:50.150 --> 00:06:51.290
  • DIDN'T MAKE SENSE.
  • 00:06:51.290 --> 00:06:53.180
  • IT WASN'T ANYTHING LIKE WHAT WE
  • 00:06:53.180 --> 00:06:54.220
  • HAD ENVISIONED.
  • 00:06:54.220 --> 00:06:56.130
  • WE WANTED SOMETHING NICE AND
  • 00:06:56.130 --> 00:06:57.150
  • NEW.
  • 00:06:57.150 --> 00:06:58.230
  • BUT GOD KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING.
  • 00:06:58.230 --> 00:07:01.120
  • IT WAS A STEP ON THE WAY TO OUR
  • 00:07:01.120 --> 00:07:03.000
  • DIVINE DESTINY.
  • 00:07:03.000 --> 00:07:05.050
  • AT THE TIME IT LOOKED LIKE A
  • 00:07:05.050 --> 00:07:06.150
  • STEP BACKWARDS.
  • 00:07:06.150 --> 00:07:08.210
  • THE TOWNHOUSE WE WERE LIVING IN
  • 00:07:08.210 --> 00:07:09.280
  • WAS MUCH NICER THAN THIS OLDER
  • 00:07:09.280 --> 00:07:11.130
  • HOME. BUT GOD CAN SEE THE BIG
  • 00:07:11.130 --> 00:07:13.090
  • PICTURE.
  • 00:07:13.090 --> 00:07:15.050
  • IF HE WOULD HAVE LET US BUY
  • 00:07:15.050 --> 00:07:16.080
  • THAT HOUSE THAT WE REALLY
  • 00:07:16.080 --> 00:07:17.110
  • WANTED WE WOULD HAVE BEEN STUCK
  • 00:07:17.110 --> 00:07:18.200
  • AT THAT SAME LEVEL YEAR AFTER
  • 00:07:18.200 --> 00:07:20.230
  • GOD HAD TO CLOSE THAT DOOR TO
  • 00:07:22.060 --> 00:07:23.280
  • MOVE US ONE STEP CLOSER TO
  • 00:07:23.280 --> 00:07:25.130
  • WHERE HE WANTED US TO BE.
  • 00:07:25.130 --> 00:07:27.270
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:07:27.270 --> 00:07:28.240
  • I'VE GOT BIG DREAMS AND BIG
  • 00:07:28.240 --> 00:07:30.000
  • GOALS BUT ONE OF MY MAIN
  • 00:07:30.000 --> 00:07:31.040
  • PRAYERS NOW IS, "GOD, NOT MY
  • 00:07:31.040 --> 00:07:33.030
  • WILL BUT LET YOUR WILL BE DONE."
  • 00:07:33.030 --> 00:07:34.120
  • IF A DOOR CLOSES, NO BIG DEAL, I
  • 00:07:34.120 --> 00:07:36.180
  • LET IT GO.
  • 00:07:36.180 --> 00:07:39.170
  • IF MY PLANS DON'T WORK OUT,
  • 00:07:39.170 --> 00:07:41.050
  • NO BIG DEAL, I KNOW GOD HAS
  • 00:07:41.050 --> 00:07:42.160
  • I'VE LEARNED TO NOT GET SO
  • 00:07:44.020 --> 00:07:46.000
  • CONSUMED BY A DREAM THAT IF IT
  • 00:07:46.000 --> 00:07:47.260
  • DOESN'T HAPPEN MY WAY I'M GOING
  • 00:07:47.260 --> 00:07:49.210
  • TO GET ALL BENT OUT OF SHAPE.
  • 00:07:49.210 --> 00:07:51.250
  • IT SAYS IN PROVERBS, "SINCE THE
  • 00:07:51.250 --> 00:07:53.120
  • LORD IS DIRECTING OUR STEPS WHY
  • 00:07:53.120 --> 00:07:56.050

  • EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS ALONG

  • DISAPPOINTMENT. IT WASN'T FAIR.
  • 00:08:02.210 --> 00:08:04.280
  • YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND IT.
  • 00:08:04.280 --> 00:08:06.050
  • YOU COULD EASILY BE BITTER,
  • 00:08:06.050 --> 00:08:08.000
  • LIVE WITH A CHIP ON YOUR
  • 00:08:08.000 --> 00:08:09.110
  • SHOULDER, AND GIVE UP ON YOUR
  • 00:08:09.110 --> 00:08:10.160
  • DREAMS.
  • 00:08:10.160 --> 00:08:11.170
  • RIGHT NOW.
  • 00:08:12.250 --> 00:08:14.140
  • HE IS DIRECTING YOUR STEPS.
  • 00:08:14.140 --> 00:08:16.050
  • WHAT YOU THOUGHT WAS A SETBACK
  • 00:08:16.050 --> 00:08:18.030
  • IS GOING TO TURN OUT TO BE A
  • 00:08:18.030 --> 00:08:19.180
  • SETUP.
  • 00:08:19.180 --> 00:08:21.000
  • GOD IS GETTING YOU IN POSITION
  • 00:08:21.000 --> 00:08:22.080

  • NOW YOU'VE GOT TO GET IN
  • 00:08:25.100 --> 00:08:26.240
  • AGREEMENT WITH GOD.
  • 00:08:26.240 --> 00:08:28.030
  • SHAKE OFF THE SELF-PITY. SHAKE
  • 00:08:28.030 --> 00:08:29.150
  • OFF THE DISAPPOINTMENT.
  • 00:08:29.150 --> 00:08:31.170
  • QUIT THINKING THAT GOD HAS LET
  • 00:08:31.170 --> 00:08:32.260
  • YOU DOWN AND HE DOESN'T ANSWER
  • 00:08:32.260 --> 00:08:34.050
  • YOUR PRAYERS.
  • 00:08:34.050 --> 00:08:36.030
  • NO, GOD HAS YOU IN THE PALM OF
  • 00:08:36.030 --> 00:08:37.040
  • HIS HAND.
  • 00:08:37.040 --> 00:08:38.200
  • HE IS DIRECTING YOU EVERY STEP
  • 00:08:38.200 --> 00:08:39.240
  • OF THE WAY.
  • 00:08:39.240 --> 00:08:41.040
  • THAT DISAPPOINTMENT MAY NOT
  • 00:08:41.040 --> 00:08:42.210
  • HAVE BEEN FAIR BUT IT'S ALL A
  • 00:08:42.210 --> 00:08:44.040
  • PART OF YOUR DIVINE DESTINY.
  • 00:08:44.040 --> 00:08:47.020
  • IF YOU WILL LET IT GO AND MOVE
  • 00:08:47.020 --> 00:08:48.130
  • FORWARD THEN YOU'RE GOING TO
  • 00:08:48.130 --> 00:08:49.270
  • COME INTO SOMETHING AWESOME
  • 00:08:49.270 --> 00:08:51.280
  • THAT GOD IS ABOUT TO DO, NOT
  • 00:08:51.280 --> 00:08:53.150
  • ORDINARY LIKE YOU HAD PLANNED,
  • 00:08:53.150 --> 00:08:55.240
  • BUT EXTRAORDINARY LIKE GOD HAS
  • 00:08:55.240 --> 00:08:57.140
  • THIS IS WHAT I DID WHEN MY
  • 00:08:59.180 --> 00:09:00.220
  • FATHER WENT TO BE WITH THE
  • 00:09:00.220 --> 00:09:01.260
  • LORD.
  • 00:09:01.260 --> 00:09:02.270
  • MY DAD AND I WERE VERY CLOSE.
  • 00:09:02.270 --> 00:09:04.110
  • WE WERE BEST FRIENDS.
  • 00:09:04.110 --> 00:09:05.170
  • AT 77 YEARS OF AGE DADDY WAS
  • 00:09:05.170 --> 00:09:07.230
  • DIAGNOSED WITH CONGESTIVE HEART
  • 00:09:07.230 --> 00:09:09.040
  • FAILURE.
  • 00:09:09.040 --> 00:09:10.160
  • WE PRAYED. WE BELIEVED.
  • 00:09:10.160 --> 00:09:12.100
  • WE STOOD IN FAITH.
  • 00:09:12.100 --> 00:09:13.280
  • WENT TO BE WITH THE LORD.
  • 00:09:15.210 --> 00:09:17.130
  • MY PRAYERS WEREN'T ANSWERED THE
  • 00:09:17.130 --> 00:09:19.060
  • WAY I WANTED.
  • 00:09:19.060 --> 00:09:21.030
  • I COULD HAVE THOUGHT, "GOD, YOU
  • 00:09:21.030 --> 00:09:22.030
  • HEALED MY MOTHER. WHY DIDN'T
  • 00:09:22.030 --> 00:09:23.040
  • YOU HEAL MY FATHER? GOD, WHY
  • 00:09:23.040 --> 00:09:24.250
  • WOULDN'T YOU GIVE HIM MORE
  • 00:09:24.250 --> 00:09:25.290
  • YEARS?"
  • 00:09:25.290 --> 00:09:27.200
  • WHEN WE WANT SOMETHING
  • 00:09:27.200 --> 00:09:28.200
  • SO BADLY THAT WE'RE DOING
  • 00:09:28.200 --> 00:09:30.260
  • EVERYTHING WE CAN TO MAKE IT
  • 00:09:30.260 --> 00:09:32.020
  • HAPPEN AND IT DOESN'T WORK OUT,
  • 00:09:32.020 --> 00:09:33.150
  • IT'S EASY TO GET NEGATIVE AND
  • 00:09:33.150 --> 00:09:34.160
  • BITTER.
  • 00:09:34.160 --> 00:09:35.180
  • I WAS DISCOURAGED. I HAD LOST
  • 00:09:35.180 --> 00:09:36.220
  • MY BEST FRIEND.
  • 00:09:36.220 --> 00:09:38.050
  • AND SURE, THERE IS A PROPER
  • 00:09:38.050 --> 00:09:39.210
  • TIME FOR MOURNING BUT YOU
  • 00:09:39.210 --> 00:09:41.200
  • CANNOT LET A SEASON OF MOURNING
  • 00:09:41.200 --> 00:09:43.220
  • TURN INTO A LIFETIME OF
  • 00:09:43.220 --> 00:09:45.010
  • MOURNING.
  • 00:09:45.010 --> 00:09:46.170
  • AT SOME POINT YOU'VE GOT TO
  • 00:09:46.170 --> 00:09:47.160
  • SAY, "GOD, I'M LETTING IT GO.
  • 00:09:47.160 --> 00:09:49.180
  • YES, I'M DISAPPOINTED.
  • 00:09:49.180 --> 00:09:51.050
  • YES, IT'S HARD.
  • 00:09:51.050 --> 00:09:52.290
  • BUT JUST BECAUSE MY LOVED ONE
  • 00:09:52.290 --> 00:09:54.230
  • HAS DIED DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOUR
  • 00:09:54.230 --> 00:09:56.060
  • PLAN FOR MY LIFE HAS ENDED."
  • 00:09:56.060 --> 00:09:59.030
  • WHAT I THOUGHT WOULD BE THE
  • 00:09:59.030 --> 00:10:00.220
  • DARKEST HOUR OF MY LIFE, THE
  • 00:10:00.220 --> 00:10:02.210
  • DEATH OF MY FATHER. AND I SAY
  • 00:10:02.210 --> 00:10:04.090
  • THIS RESPECTFULLY BECAUSE I
  • 00:10:04.090 --> 00:10:05.170
  • HONOR AND LOVE MY DAD.
  • 00:10:05.170 --> 00:10:07.210
  • BUT IT TURNED OUT TO BE THE
  • 00:10:07.210 --> 00:10:09.010
  • BRIGHTEST HOUR OF MY LIFE.
  • 00:10:09.010 --> 00:10:11.060
  • IT LAUNCHED ME INTO WHAT I'M
  • 00:10:11.060 --> 00:10:12.150
  • DOING NOW.
  • 00:10:12.150 --> 00:10:14.040
  • THE DEATH OF MY FATHER WAS
  • 00:10:14.040 --> 00:10:15.090
  • ANOTHER STEP ON THE WAY TO MY
  • 00:10:15.090 --> 00:10:16.280
  • DIVINE DESTINY.
  • 00:10:16.280 --> 00:10:18.250
  • WHEN YOU GO THROUGH LOSS,
  • 00:10:18.250 --> 00:10:20.110
  • LOSS OF A LOVED ONE, LOSS OF
  • 00:10:20.110 --> 00:10:21.290
  • A RELATIONSHIP, LOSS OF A JOB,
  • 00:10:21.290 --> 00:10:23.210
  • IT CAN BE VERY DIFFICULT.
  • 00:10:23.210 --> 00:10:25.270
  • MANY PEOPLE GET NEGATIVE, AND
  • 00:10:25.270 --> 00:10:27.190
  • BITTER, THEY HAVE A CHIP ON
  • 00:10:27.190 --> 00:10:28.280
  • THEIR SHOULDER.
  • 00:10:28.280 --> 00:10:30.190
  • BUT IF YOU CAN JUST LEARN TO
  • 00:10:30.190 --> 00:10:31.260
  • LET IT GO AND SAY, "GOD, I
  • 00:10:31.260 --> 00:10:33.170
  • DON'T UNDERSTAND IT BUT I TRUST
  • 00:10:33.170 --> 00:10:35.090
  • YOU; I KNOW YOU'RE STILL IN
  • 00:10:35.090 --> 00:10:36.250
  • CONTROL."
  • 00:10:36.250 --> 00:10:38.140
  • THEN JUST LIKE I DID YOU'RE
  • 00:10:38.140 --> 00:10:39.180
  • GOING TO STEP IN TO A GREATER
  • 00:10:39.180 --> 00:10:41.270
  • LEVEL OF YOUR DESTINY.
  • 00:10:41.270 --> 00:10:43.080
  • I'VE LEARNED GOD DOESN'T ALWAYS
  • 00:10:43.080 --> 00:10:45.090
  • TAKE US FROM A TO B TO C.
  • 00:10:45.090 --> 00:10:48.020
  • SOMETIMES GOD WILL TAKE YOU FROM
  • 00:10:48.020 --> 00:10:50.020
  • A TO B, ALL THE WAY TO S, AND
  • 00:10:50.020 --> 00:10:52.170
  • THEN BACK TO D, AND THEN TO K,
  • 00:10:52.170 --> 00:10:55.090
  • GOD'S WAYS ARE NOT OUR WAYS.K,
  • 00:10:58.010 --> 00:11:00.040
  • QUIT TRYING TO FIGURE IT ALL OUT
  • 00:11:00.040 --> 00:11:01.140
  • AND SIMPLY TRUST HIM. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:11:01.140 --> 00:11:03.210
  • "WELL, JOEL. WHY DIDN'T MY
  • 00:11:03.210 --> 00:11:04.210
  • MARRIAGE MAKE IT?"
  • 00:11:04.210 --> 00:11:06.000
  • "WHY DID THIS PERSON LEAVE ME?"
  • 00:11:06.000 --> 00:11:07.190
  • "WHY DID THIS COMPANY LAY ME
  • 00:11:07.190 --> 00:11:09.020
  • OFF AFTER WORKING THERE
  • 00:11:09.020 --> 00:11:10.190
  • FAITHFULLY FOR 30 YEARS?"
  • 00:11:10.190 --> 00:11:12.250
  • HERE IS MY ANSWER, IT'S VERY
  • 00:11:12.250 --> 00:11:13.230
  • PROFOUND: I DON'T KNOW WHY.
  • 00:11:13.230 --> 00:11:16.000
  • (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:11:16.000 --> 00:11:17.160
  • YOU MAY NEVER KNOW WHY.
  • 00:11:17.160 --> 00:11:19.020
  • YOUR STEPS. GOD IS A JUST GOD.
  • 00:11:20.190 --> 00:11:23.170
  • IT MAY NOT HAVE BEEN FAIR BUT
  • 00:11:23.170 --> 00:11:24.280
  • GOD IS FAIR.
  • 00:11:24.280 --> 00:11:26.290
  • IF YOU WILL LET IT GO AND MOVE
  • 00:11:26.290 --> 00:11:28.200
  • FORWARD GOD HAS PROMISED HE
  • 00:11:28.200 --> 00:11:29.260
  • WILL PAY YOU BACK FOR THE
  • 00:11:29.260 --> 00:11:31.030
  • UNFAIR THINGS THAT HAVE
  • 00:11:31.030 --> 00:11:32.090
  • HAPPENED.
  • 00:11:32.090 --> 00:11:33.130
  • SOME OF YOU TODAY, IF YOU WOULD
  • 00:11:33.130 --> 00:11:34.190
  • JUST START LETTING THINGS GO
  • 00:11:34.190 --> 00:11:36.010
  • YOU WOULD COME INTO BREAK-
  • 00:11:36.010 --> 00:11:37.200
  • THROUGHS, TO PROMOTIONS,
  • 00:11:37.200 --> 00:11:39.030
  • TO NEW BEGINNINGS.
  • 00:11:39.030 --> 00:11:40.280
  • AS LONG AS YOU'RE HOLDING ON TO
  • 00:11:40.280 --> 00:11:42.120
  • THE OLD-NEGATIVE, DISCOURAGED,
  • 00:11:42.120 --> 00:11:44.180
  • BITTER-IT'S GOING TO KEEP YOU
  • 00:11:44.180 --> 00:11:45.230
  • FROM THE NEW.
  • 00:11:45.230 --> 00:11:47.070
  • "JOEL, WHY DID YOUR MOTHER GET
  • 00:11:48.250 --> 00:11:50.130
  • HEALED FROM CANCER BUT MY
  • 00:11:50.130 --> 00:11:51.170
  • MOTHER DIDN'T? WE PRAYED.
  • 00:11:51.170 --> 00:11:53.290
  • WE BELIEVED. WE STOOD ON THE
  • 00:11:53.290 --> 00:11:55.120
  • SAME SCRIPTURES."
  • 00:11:55.120 --> 00:11:57.030
  • MY ANSWER IS ALWAYS THE SAME.
  • 00:11:57.030 --> 00:11:58.220
  • I DON'T KNOW WHY.
  • 00:11:58.220 --> 00:11:59.270
  • I DON'T CLAIM TO HAVE ALL THE
  • 00:11:59.270 --> 00:12:01.020
  • ANSWERS BUT I DO KNOW GOD IS
  • 00:12:01.020 --> 00:12:02.050
  • FOR YOU.
  • 00:12:02.050 --> 00:12:03.290
  • HE SAID HE WOULD GIVE YOU
  • 00:12:03.290 --> 00:12:05.140
  • BEAUTY FOR THOSE ASHES BUT
  • 00:12:05.140 --> 00:12:07.060
  • YOU'VE GOT TO LET GO OF THE
  • 00:12:07.060 --> 00:12:08.090
  • LET GO OF THE DISAPPOINTMENTS.
  • 00:12:09.180 --> 00:12:10.250
  • LET GO OF THE HURTS AND PAINS.
  • 00:12:10.250 --> 00:12:12.190
  • QUIT TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHY
  • 00:12:12.190 --> 00:12:13.260
  • SOMETHING BAD HAS HAPPENED
  • 00:12:13.260 --> 00:12:15.090
  • TO YOU. "WHY DID I HAVE THIS
  • 00:12:15.090 --> 00:12:16.170
  • MISCARRIAGE?"
  • 00:12:16.170 --> 00:12:17.210
  • "WHY WAS I BORN INTO THIS
  • 00:12:17.210 --> 00:12:18.240
  • FAMILY?"
  • 00:12:18.240 --> 00:12:19.280
  • "WHY DID THIS PERSON LEAVE ME?"
  • 00:12:19.280 --> 00:12:21.080
  • THAT'S JUST GOING TO LEAD TO
  • 00:12:21.080 --> 00:12:22.000
  • FRUSTRATION.
  • 00:12:22.000 --> 00:12:23.250
  • THERE ARE SOME SITUATIONS THAT
  • 00:12:23.250 --> 00:12:25.010
  • WE FACE THAT THERE ARE NO
  • 00:12:25.010 --> 00:12:26.210
  • LOGICAL EXPLANATIONS TO.
  • 00:12:26.210 --> 00:12:28.220
  • YOU HAVE TO BE BIG ENOUGH TO
  • 00:12:28.220 --> 00:12:31.130
  • SAY, "I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY
  • 00:12:31.130 --> 00:12:33.190
  • THIS HAS HAPPENED. AND YOU KNOW
  • 00:12:33.190 --> 00:12:34.240
  • WHAT?
  • 00:12:34.240 --> 00:12:35.260
  • I'M OKAY WITH NOT UNDERSTANDING
  • 00:12:35.260 --> 00:12:36.290
  • WHY.
  • 00:12:36.290 --> 00:12:38.030
  • I DON'T HAVE TO HAVE ALL THE
  • 00:12:38.030 --> 00:12:39.090
  • ANSWERS.
  • 00:12:39.090 --> 00:12:40.130
  • YOU ARE GOD AND I AM NOT.
  • 00:12:40.130 --> 00:12:42.220
  • YOUR WAYS ARE NOT MY WAYS.
  • 00:12:42.220 --> 00:12:44.120
  • AND SINCE YOU'RE DIRECTING MY
  • 00:12:44.120 --> 00:12:45.230
  • STEPS I'M NOT GOING TO WASTE
  • 00:12:45.230 --> 00:12:46.290
  • ANOTHER MINUTE OF MY TIME AND
  • 00:12:46.290 --> 00:12:48.160
  • ENERGY TRYING TO FIGURE OUT
  • 00:12:48.160 --> 00:12:49.260
  • EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS ALONG
  • 00:12:49.260 --> 00:12:50.290
  • THAT'S A VERY POWERFUL
  • 00:12:52.230 --> 00:12:53.180
  • WAY TO LIVE. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:12:53.180 --> 00:12:55.160
  • AND MOST OF THE TIME WE CAN
  • 00:12:55.160 --> 00:12:56.250
  • DEAL WITH A SITUATION IF WE CAN
  • 00:12:56.250 --> 00:12:58.280
  • FIND A FILE IN OUR THINKING TO
  • 00:12:58.280 --> 00:13:00.220
  • PUT IT IN.
  • 00:13:00.220 --> 00:13:02.080
  • WE THINK, "THIS HAPPENED
  • 00:13:02.080 --> 00:13:04.060
  • BECAUSE OF THIS REASON."
  • 00:13:04.060 --> 00:13:05.110
  • IN OTHER WORDS, "HE WAS RUNNING
  • 00:13:05.110 --> 00:13:06.110
  • GOT INTO TROUBLE.
  • 00:13:07.140 --> 00:13:08.220
  • THAT MAKES SENSE." OR, "SHE
  • 00:13:08.220 --> 00:13:09.270
  • WASN'T RAISED IN A GOOD
  • 00:13:09.270 --> 00:13:11.020
  • ENVIRONMENT AND SHE GOT OFF
  • 00:13:11.020 --> 00:13:12.050
  • COURSE."
  • 00:13:12.050 --> 00:13:13.050
  • THAT MAKES SENSE. BUT WHAT
  • 00:13:13.050 --> 00:13:14.130
  • ABOUT THE THINGS THAT DON'T
  • 00:13:14.130 --> 00:13:15.240
  • MAKE SENSE?
  • 00:13:15.240 --> 00:13:17.270
  • TEN YEARS AGO WHEN THE PLANES
  • 00:13:17.270 --> 00:13:19.160
  • CRASHED INTO THE WORLD TRADE
  • 00:13:19.160 --> 00:13:21.030
  • CENTER AND PENNSYLVANIA AND
  • 00:13:21.030 --> 00:13:22.220
  • WASHINGTON, NEARLY 3.000 PEOPLE
  • 00:13:22.220 --> 00:13:25.000
  • TRAGICALLY LOST THEIR LIVES.
  • 00:13:25.000 --> 00:13:27.110
  • IT CAUSED SO MUCH HURT AND
  • 00:13:27.110 --> 00:13:28.260
  • PAIN. THAT DIDN'T MAKE SENSE.
  • 00:13:28.260 --> 00:13:30.260
  • IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE FOR A
  • 00:13:30.260 --> 00:13:32.040
  • BABY TO BE BORN WITH A BIRTH
  • 00:13:32.040 --> 00:13:34.010
  • INJURY. I CAN'T EXPLAIN THAT.
  • 00:13:34.010 --> 00:13:36.130
  • IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE FOR A
  • 00:13:36.130 --> 00:13:38.050
  • DRUNK DRIVER TO END SOMEONE'S
  • 00:13:38.050 --> 00:13:39.100
  • LIFE.
  • 00:13:39.100 --> 00:13:40.160
  • IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE FOR A
  • 00:13:40.160 --> 00:13:41.160
  • GOOD PERSON TO COME DOWN WITH
  • 00:13:41.160 --> 00:13:42.270
  • A TERMINAL ILLNESS. WHAT HAPPENS
  • 00:13:42.270 --> 00:13:45.030
  • WHEN WE CAN'T FIND A FILE TO PUT
  • 00:13:45.030 --> 00:13:47.000
  • IT IN?
  • 00:13:47.000 --> 00:13:48.200
  • HERE'S THE ANSWER. EVERY ONE OF
  • 00:13:48.200 --> 00:13:49.280
  • US NEEDS TO CREATE A FILE IN
  • 00:13:49.280 --> 00:13:52.060
  • OUR THINKING CALLED AN "I DON'T
  • 00:13:52.060 --> 00:13:54.100
  • UNDERSTAND IT" FILE.
  • 00:13:54.150 --> 00:13:57.150
  • AND WHEN THINGS COME UP THAT
  • 00:13:57.150 --> 00:13:58.240
  • DON'T MAKE SENSE, THAT YOU
  • 00:13:58.240 --> 00:14:00.110
  • CAN'T FIGURE OUT, INSTEAD OF
  • 00:14:00.110 --> 00:14:01.170
  • GETTING FRUSTRATED, CONFUSED,
  • 00:14:01.170 --> 00:14:03.140
  • SIMPLY PUT IT IN YOUR "I DON'T
  • 00:14:03.140 --> 00:14:05.090
  • UNDERSTAND IT" FILE AND LEAVE
  • 00:14:05.090 --> 00:14:07.000
  • IT ALONE. IF YOU GO THROUGH
  • 00:14:07.000 --> 00:14:08.260
  • LIFE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHY
  • 00:14:08.260 --> 00:14:11.090
  • SOMETHING BAD HAPPENED,
  • 00:14:11.090 --> 00:14:13.030
  • WHY IT DIDN'T WORK OUT,
  • 00:14:13.030 --> 00:14:14.140
  • WHY MY CHILD DIDN'T GET HEALED,
  • 00:14:14.140 --> 00:14:16.100
  • IT'S GOING TO CAUSE YOU TO BE
  • 00:14:16.100 --> 00:14:18.020
  • BITTER. IT'S GOING TO POISON
  • 00:14:18.020 --> 00:14:19.020
  • YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:14:19.020 --> 00:14:20.140
  • LISTEN, IF GOD WANTS YOU TO
  • 00:14:20.140 --> 00:14:21.210
  • KNOW WHY, HE IS GOD, HE WILL
  • 00:14:21.210 --> 00:14:23.100
  • TELL YOU.
  • 00:14:23.100 --> 00:14:24.280
  • BUT IF HE IS NOT REVEALING IT
  • 00:14:24.280 --> 00:14:26.010
  • TO YOU, YOU NEED TO LEAVE IT
  • 00:14:26.010 --> 00:14:27.040
  • ALONE.
  • 00:14:27.040 --> 00:14:28.090
  • SOME THINGS GOD DOESN'T WANT
  • 00:14:28.090 --> 00:14:29.270
  • YOU TO KNOW. IT SAYS IN
  • 00:14:29.270 --> 00:14:31.060
  • PROVERBS, "IT IS GOD'S
  • 00:14:31.060 --> 00:14:32.180
  • PRIVILEGE TO CONCEAL THINGS."
  • 00:14:32.180 --> 00:14:35.120
  • IF YOU'RE GOING TO TRUST GOD
  • 00:14:35.120 --> 00:14:37.040
  • YOU HAVE TO ACCEPT THE FACT
  • 00:14:37.040 --> 00:14:39.030
  • THAT THERE ARE GOING TO BE
  • 00:14:39.030 --> 00:14:40.060
  • UNANSWERED QUESTIONS.
  • 00:14:40.060 --> 00:14:41.290
  • EVERYTHING IS NOT GOING TO FIT
  • 00:14:41.290 --> 00:14:42.260
  • PERFECTLY INTO OUR THEOLOGY BUT
  • 00:14:43.020 --> 00:14:46.020
  • WE CAN COME BACK TO THE CENTRAL
  • 00:14:46.020 --> 00:14:47.210
  • THEME OF WHO GOD IS.
  • 00:14:47.210 --> 00:14:49.200
  • GOD IS GOOD. GOD IS LOVING.
  • 00:14:49.200 --> 00:14:51.190
  • GOD IS KIND. GOD IS FAIR.
  • 00:14:51.190 --> 00:14:53.000
  • GOD IS JUST.
  • 00:14:53.000 --> 00:14:54.060
  • HERE'S WHAT I'VE LEARNED.
  • 00:14:54.060 --> 00:14:55.140
  • DON'T PUT A QUESTION MARK WHERE
  • 00:14:55.140 --> 00:14:57.040
  • GOD HAS PUT A PERIOD.
  • 00:14:57.040 --> 00:14:59.170
  • IF YOU PRAYED, YOU BELIEVED,
  • 00:14:59.170 --> 00:15:01.110
  • IT DIDN'T WORK OUT.
  • 00:15:01.110 --> 00:15:02.140
  • GOD PUT A PERIOD.
  • 00:15:02.140 --> 00:15:03.260
  • WHEN MY FATHER WAS SICK THE
  • 00:15:05.050 --> 00:15:06.060
  • WHOLE CHURCH PRAYED.
  • 00:15:06.060 --> 00:15:08.140
  • WE ALL STOOD IN FAITH BUT DADDY
  • 00:15:08.140 --> 00:15:09.280
  • WENT TO BE WITH THE LORD.
  • 00:15:09.280 --> 00:15:11.040
  • WHAT HAPPENED?
  • 00:15:11.040 --> 00:15:12.110
  • GOD PUT A PERIOD.
  • 00:15:12.110 --> 00:15:13.290
  • NOW WE COULD PUT A QUESTION
  • 00:15:13.290 --> 00:15:14.260
  • MARK AND SAY,
  • 00:15:14.260 --> 00:15:16.040
  • PRAYERS? WHY DIDN'T YOU GIVE HIM
  • 00:15:17.110 --> 00:15:18.170
  • MORE TIME?"
  • 00:15:18.170 --> 00:15:19.250
  • OR WE COULD ACCEPT THE FACT
  • 00:15:19.250 --> 00:15:21.040
  • THAT GOD PUT A PERIOD, THAT
  • 00:15:21.040 --> 00:15:23.060
  • THAT CHAPTER IS OVER.
  • 00:15:23.060 --> 00:15:24.220
  • THIS IS A NEW DAY.
  • 00:15:24.220 --> 00:15:26.080
  • WE CELEBRATED WHAT GOD HAD DONE
  • 00:15:26.080 --> 00:15:28.000
  • THROUGH MY FATHER AND WE
  • 00:15:28.000 --> 00:15:29.030
  • STEPPED INTO THE NEW BEGINNING
  • 00:15:29.030 --> 00:15:31.020
  • GOD HAD IN STORE FOR US.
  • 00:15:31.020 --> 00:15:32.220
  • DON'T PUT A QUESTION MARK.
  • 00:15:32.220 --> 00:15:33.280
  • IF YOU WORKED HARD BUT YOU
  • 00:15:33.280 --> 00:15:35.190
  • DIDN'T GET THE PROMOTION DUST
  • 00:15:35.190 --> 00:15:36.290
  • YOUR FACE OFF AND MOVE FORWARD.
  • 00:15:36.290 --> 00:15:39.170
  • GOD HAS SOMETHING BETTER.
  • 00:15:39.170 --> 00:15:40.290
  • I TALKED TO A GENTLEMAN LAST
  • 00:15:40.290 --> 00:15:41.260
  • WEEK.
  • 00:15:41.260 --> 00:15:43.050
  • HE WAS VERY DISCOURAGED BECAUSE
  • 00:15:43.050 --> 00:15:44.150
  • HIS BUSINESS DIDN'T MAKE IT.
  • 00:15:44.150 --> 00:15:46.250
  • HE GAVE IT HIS BEST BUT IT
  • 00:15:46.250 --> 00:15:47.180
  • STILL WENT UNDER.
  • 00:15:47.180 --> 00:15:49.130
  • HE TOLD HOW HE HAD PUT IN ALL
  • 00:15:49.130 --> 00:15:50.200
  • OF HIS SAVINGS AND HIS TIME,
  • 00:15:50.200 --> 00:15:52.130
  • HIS EFFORT.
  • 00:15:52.130 --> 00:15:53.120
  • HE JUST COULDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY
  • 00:15:53.120 --> 00:15:54.190
  • IT DIDN'T WORK OUT. I TOLD HIM
  • 00:15:54.190 --> 00:15:55.240
  • WHAT I'M TELLING YOU.
  • 00:15:55.240 --> 00:15:57.230
  • THAT'S OVER AND DONE.
  • 00:15:57.230 --> 00:15:59.040
  • GOD PUT A PERIOD. DON'T PUT A
  • 00:15:59.040 --> 00:16:00.120
  • QUESTION MARK.
  • 00:16:00.120 --> 00:16:01.260
  • DON'T LIVE IN SELF-PITY.
  • 00:16:01.260 --> 00:16:03.150
  • "GOD, WHY DID THIS HAPPEN?"
  • 00:16:03.150 --> 00:16:04.290
  • NO, THAT'S SIMPLY ANOTHER
  • 00:16:04.290 --> 00:16:06.250
  • CHAPTER IN YOUR BOOK.
  • 00:16:06.250 --> 00:16:08.150
  • DO YOURSELF A FAVOR. TURN THE
  • 00:16:08.150 --> 00:16:09.210
  • PAGE.
  • 00:16:09.210 --> 00:16:11.190
  • IF YOU WILL MOVE FORWARD YOU
  • 00:16:11.190 --> 00:16:12.250
  • WILL COME INTO ANOTHER CHAPTER.
  • 00:16:12.250 --> 00:16:15.000
  • THE GOOD NEWS IS YOUR STORY
  • 00:16:15.000 --> 00:16:16.130
  • DOESN'T END IN DEFEAT.
  • 00:16:16.130 --> 00:16:18.140
  • IT ENDS IN VICTORY.
  • 00:16:18.250 --> 00:16:21.250
  • GOD ALWAYS CAUSES YOU TO
  • 00:16:21.250 --> 00:16:22.210
  • SO IF YOU'RE NOT VICTORIOUS
  • 00:16:23.210 --> 00:16:24.180
  • RIGHT NOW JUST KEEP MOVING
  • 00:16:24.180 --> 00:16:25.130
  • FORWARD.
  • 00:16:25.130 --> 00:16:26.170
  • THAT MEANS IT'S NOT THE END.
  • 00:16:26.170 --> 00:16:28.100
  • IN THE SCRIPTURE DAVID HAD A
  • 00:16:28.100 --> 00:16:29.220
  • NEWBORN BABY THAT WAS VERY SICK
  • 00:16:29.220 --> 00:16:31.180
  • AND CLOSE TO DEATH.
  • 00:16:31.180 --> 00:16:33.260
  • FOR SEVEN DAYS AND SEVEN NIGHTS
  • 00:16:33.260 --> 00:16:35.170
  • DAVID FASTED AND PRAYED FOR THE
  • 00:16:35.170 --> 00:16:37.110
  • BABY, WOULDN'T EAT ANYTHING,
  • 00:16:37.110 --> 00:16:39.170
  • WOULDN'T GET UP OFF THE FLOOR.
  • 00:16:39.170 --> 00:16:40.280
  • IN FACT, HIS MEN WERE WORRIED
  • 00:16:40.280 --> 00:16:42.160
  • ABOUT HIM.
  • 00:16:42.160 --> 00:16:43.250
  • THEY SAID, "DAVID, YOU'VE GOT TO
  • 00:16:43.250 --> 00:16:45.010
  • HE WOULDN'T DO IT.
  • 00:16:45.240 --> 00:16:46.210
  • ON THE SEVENTH DAY THEY CAME
  • 00:16:46.210 --> 00:16:47.170
  • IN WITH THE BAD NEWS THAT THE
  • 00:16:47.170 --> 00:16:48.140
  • BABY HAD DIED.
  • 00:16:48.140 --> 00:16:49.220
  • GOING TO RESPOND.
  • 00:16:50.240 --> 00:16:52.130
  • BUT WHEN DAVID HEARD THE NEWS HE
  • 00:16:52.130 --> 00:16:53.220
  • GOT UP OFF THE GROUND, WENT
  • 00:16:53.220 --> 00:16:55.150
  • HOME, TOOK A SHOWER, PUT ON SOME
  • 00:16:55.150 --> 00:16:57.270
  • NEW CLOTHES, GOT SOMETHING TO
  • 00:16:57.270 --> 00:17:00.180
  • EAT AND WENT TO THE TEMPLE AND
  • 00:17:00.180 --> 00:17:01.190
  • BEGAN TO WORSHIP.
  • 00:17:01.190 --> 00:17:04.030
  • HIS MEN WERE SO AMAZED AT HOW
  • 00:17:04.030 --> 00:17:05.070
  • DAVID SAID, "WHEN THE BABY WAS
  • 00:17:07.000 --> 00:17:08.090
  • ALIVE I PRAYED FOR GOD TO HEAL
  • 00:17:08.090 --> 00:17:11.080
  • HIM. BUT NOW THAT HE IS GONE I
  • 00:17:11.080 --> 00:17:13.230
  • CANNOT BRING HIM BACK.
  • 00:17:13.230 --> 00:17:15.250
  • HE WILL NOT COME TO ME BUT ONE
  • 00:17:15.250 --> 00:17:17.160
  • DAY I WILL GO TO BE WITH HIM."
  • 00:17:17.160 --> 00:17:20.080
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:17:20.080 --> 00:17:21.090
  • DAVID WAS SAYING, "GOD PUT A
  • 00:17:21.090 --> 00:17:22.100
  • PERIOD HERE. I'M NOT GOING TO
  • 00:17:22.100 --> 00:17:23.140
  • PUT A QUESTION MARK.
  • 00:17:23.140 --> 00:17:25.030
  • I PRAYED. I BELIEVED. I FASTED.
  • 00:17:25.030 --> 00:17:28.020
  • I DID EVERYTHING I COULD BUT IT
  • 00:17:28.020 --> 00:17:29.070
  • DIDN'T WORK OUT SO I'M GOING TO
  • 00:17:29.070 --> 00:17:30.180
  • LET IT GO.
  • 00:17:30.180 --> 00:17:32.060
  • I'M GOING TO RELEASE IT AND
  • 00:17:32.060 --> 00:17:33.010
  • MOVE FORWARD WITH MY LIFE."
  • 00:17:33.010 --> 00:17:34.130
  • MAYBE YOU'VE DONE EVERYTHING YOU
  • 00:17:34.130 --> 00:17:36.130
  • YOU PRAYED. YOU BELIEVED.ING YOU
  • 00:17:37.140 --> 00:17:38.160
  • YOU GAVE IT YOUR ALL BUT IT
  • 00:17:38.160 --> 00:17:39.140
  • DIDN'T WORK OUT.
  • 00:17:39.140 --> 00:17:41.060
  • BEST THING YOU CAN DO IS
  • 00:17:41.060 --> 00:17:42.130
  • RELEASE IT. JUST LET IT GO.
  • 00:17:42.130 --> 00:17:43.290
  • DON'T GO AROUND IN SELF-PITY,
  • 00:17:44.070 --> 00:17:47.070
  • DEFEATED, THINKING THERE IS
  • 00:17:47.070 --> 00:17:47.280
  • DO LIKE DAVID. FRESHEN UP.
  • 00:17:49.210 --> 00:17:51.120
  • PUT ON A NEW ATTITUDE.
  • 00:17:51.120 --> 00:17:53.150
  • GO TO THE MALL. BUY SOME NEW
  • 00:17:53.150 --> 00:17:54.290
  • CLOTHES.
  • 00:17:54.290 --> 00:17:55.260
  • GET SOMETHING GOOD TO EAT AND
  • 00:17:55.260 --> 00:17:56.280
  • GET READY FOR THE NEW THING GOD
  • 00:17:56.280 --> 00:17:57.280
  • IS ABOUT TO DO.
  • 00:17:57.280 --> 00:17:59.260
  • I KNOW SOME OF YOU LADIES ARE
  • 00:17:59.260 --> 00:18:00.240
  • THINKING, "I HEARD THE WORD I
  • 00:18:00.240 --> 00:18:01.190
  • NEEDED. HE SAID, 'GO TO THE
  • 00:18:01.190 --> 00:18:02.150
  • MALL.'" (LAUGHTER)
  • 00:18:02.150 --> 00:18:04.010
  • I THINK ABOUT EVE IN THE
  • 00:18:04.010 --> 00:18:05.110
  • SCRIPTURE. SHE WENT THROUGH
  • 00:18:05.110 --> 00:18:07.060
  • A GREAT DISAPPOINTMENT.
  • 00:18:07.060 --> 00:18:08.220
  • HER SON CAIN KILLED HER SON
  • 00:18:08.220 --> 00:18:11.030
  • ABLE, THE FIRST MURDER IN THE
  • 00:18:11.030 --> 00:18:12.020
  • BIBLE.
  • 00:18:12.020 --> 00:18:13.260
  • AND I'M SURE EVE LIKE ANY
  • 00:18:13.260 --> 00:18:14.280
  • MOTHER WAS DEVASTATED AND
  • 00:18:14.280 --> 00:18:16.090
  • HEARTBROKEN.
  • 00:18:16.090 --> 00:18:17.190
  • SHE COULD HAVE THOUGHT, "GOD,
  • 00:18:17.190 --> 00:18:18.200
  • HOW COULD YOU LET THIS HAPPEN
  • 00:18:18.200 --> 00:18:19.220
  • TO ME?"
  • 00:18:19.220 --> 00:18:21.000
  • BUT I LOVE WHAT EVE SAID IN
  • 00:18:21.000 --> 00:18:22.240
  • GENESIS 4:25, "GOD HAS APPOINTED
  • 00:18:22.240 --> 00:18:24.010
  • ANOTHER SEED FOR ME."
  • 00:18:24.230 --> 00:18:27.230
  • SHE WAS SAYING, "I DON'T
  • 00:18:27.230 --> 00:18:29.080
  • UNDERSTAND IT. IT DOESN'T MAKE
  • 00:18:29.080 --> 00:18:30.230
  • SENSE BUT I KNOW GOD IS STILL
  • 00:18:30.230 --> 00:18:32.030
  • IN CONTROL. THIS IS NOT THE
  • 00:18:32.030 --> 00:18:33.140
  • END. HE HAS APPOINTED ANOTHER
  • 00:18:33.140 --> 00:18:35.020
  • SEED."
  • 00:18:35.020 --> 00:18:37.160
  • GOD IS SAYING WHEN YOU GO
  • 00:18:37.160 --> 00:18:38.170
  • THROUGH THINGS THAT YOU DON'T
  • 00:18:38.170 --> 00:18:40.040
  • UNDERSTAND IT IS NOT THE END.
  • 00:18:40.040 --> 00:18:42.100
  • GOD IS GOING TO APPOINT ANOTHER
  • 00:18:42.100 --> 00:18:44.010
  • SEED. THE REASON GOD SAYS SEED
  • 00:18:44.010 --> 00:18:46.190
  • IS SEED REPRESENTS THE FUTURE.
  • 00:18:46.220 --> 00:18:49.220
  • IT INDICATES WHAT IS COMING.
  • 00:18:49.220 --> 00:18:51.120
  • IF YOU WILL LET GO OF WHAT
  • 00:18:51.120 --> 00:18:52.140
  • DIDN'T WORK OUT, LET GO OF THE
  • 00:18:52.140 --> 00:18:54.070
  • HURTS AND PAINS, THEN FOR
  • 00:18:54.070 --> 00:18:55.200
  • EVERYTHING YOU'VE LOST, GOD WILL
  • 00:18:55.200 --> 00:18:57.120
  • APPOINT ANOTHER SEED.
  • 00:18:57.120 --> 00:18:59.210
  • EVERYTHING THAT WAS TAKEN AWAY,
  • 00:18:59.210 --> 00:19:01.030
  • ANOTHER SEED.
  • 00:19:01.030 --> 00:19:02.070
  • MORE IN THE FUTURE THAN YOU'VE
  • 00:19:03.290 --> 00:19:05.270
  • LOST IN THE PAST.
  • 00:19:05.270 --> 00:19:07.110
  • NOW YOU'VE GOT TO DO YOUR PART
  • 00:19:07.110 --> 00:19:08.290
  • AND KEEP MOVING FORWARD.
  • 00:19:08.290 --> 00:19:09.280
  • (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:19:09.280 --> 00:19:10.260
  • WHEN YOU DRIVE HOME TODAY, IN
  • 00:19:10.260 --> 00:19:12.130
  • YOUR CAR THERE IS A BIG
  • 00:19:12.130 --> 00:19:14.010
  • WINDSHIELD IN THE FRONT AND THEN
  • 00:19:14.010 --> 00:19:15.220
  • THE REASON THE WINDSHIELD IS SO
  • 00:19:18.280 --> 00:19:20.000
  • LARGE AND THE REARVIEW MIRROR IS
  • 00:19:20.000 --> 00:19:21.180
  • SO SMALL IS BECAUSE WHAT'S IN
  • 00:19:21.180 --> 00:19:23.130
  • YOUR PAST IS NOT NEARLY AS
  • 00:19:23.130 --> 00:19:25.160
  • IMPORTANT AS WHAT'S IN YOUR
  • 00:19:25.160 --> 00:19:26.260
  • FUTURE.
  • 00:19:26.260 --> 00:19:28.090
  • WHERE YOU ARE GOING IS MUCH
  • 00:19:28.090 --> 00:19:29.260
  • MORE IMPORTANT THAN WHERE
  • 00:19:29.260 --> 00:19:31.090
  • YOU'VE BEEN. (APPLAUSE)
  • 00:19:31.090 --> 00:19:33.130
  • BUT IF YOU STAY FOCUSED ON THE
  • 00:19:33.130 --> 00:19:34.230
  • PAST YOU'LL GET STUCK RIGHT
  • 00:19:34.230 --> 00:19:36.220
  • WHERE YOU ARE.
  • 00:19:36.220 --> 00:19:38.040
  • LISTEN, IF ONE DREAM HAS DIED
  • 00:19:38.040 --> 00:19:39.170
  • DREAM ANOTHER DREAM.
  • 00:19:39.170 --> 00:19:41.060
  • GOD HAS APPOINTED ANOTHER SEED.
  • 00:19:41.060 --> 00:19:43.180
  • DON'T LET ONE SETBACK DEFINE WHO
  • 00:19:43.180 --> 00:19:45.070
  • YOU ARE.
  • 00:19:45.070 --> 00:19:48.010
  • DON'T LET ONE BETRAYAL, ONE
  • 00:19:48.010 --> 00:19:49.050
  • MISTAKE, ONE DIVORCE, ONE
  • 00:19:49.050 --> 00:19:51.000
  • BANKRUPTCY RUIN THE REST OF YOUR
  • 00:19:51.000 --> 00:19:52.270
  • LIFE.
  • 00:19:52.270 --> 00:19:53.280
  • THAT IS NOT WHO YOU ARE.
  • 00:19:53.280 --> 00:19:55.150
  • THAT IS JUST ANOTHER STEP ON THE
  • 00:19:55.150 --> 00:19:57.010
  • WAY TO YOUR DIVINE DESTINY.
  • 00:19:57.010 --> 00:19:59.110
  • NOW LET IT GO AND STEP INTO THE
  • 00:19:59.110 --> 00:20:00.270
  • NEW BEGINNING GOD HAS IN STORE.
  • 00:20:00.270 --> 00:20:02.240
  • BOTTOM LINE IS YOU HAVE TO QUIT
  • 00:20:02.240 --> 00:20:04.220
  • MOURNING OVER SOMETHING THAT YOU
  • 00:20:04.220 --> 00:20:06.050
  • CANNOT CHANGE.
  • 00:20:06.050 --> 00:20:08.070
  • IF GOD PUT A PERIOD THERE DON'T
  • 00:20:08.070 --> 00:20:09.180
  • WASTE ANOTHER MINUTE IN
  • 00:20:09.180 --> 00:20:10.290
  • SELF-PITY, DEFEATED, WONDERING
  • 00:20:10.290 --> 00:20:13.030
  • WHY THIS HAS HAPPENED.
  • 00:20:13.030 --> 00:20:14.250
  • NO, THAT CHAPTER IS OVER AND
  • 00:20:14.250 --> 00:20:15.250
  • DONE.
  • 00:20:15.250 --> 00:20:16.200
  • THIS IS A NEW DAY.
  • 00:20:16.200 --> 00:20:17.280
  • GOD HAS ANOTHER SEED IN FRONT
  • 00:20:17.280 --> 00:20:18.290
  • OF YOU.
  • 00:20:18.290 --> 00:20:20.250
  • HE HAS ANOTHER RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:20:20.250 --> 00:20:22.100
  • BREAKTHROUGH; ANOTHER VICTORY.
  • 00:20:23.140 --> 00:20:25.080
  • MOVE FORWARD INTO THE NEW.
  • 00:20:25.080 --> 00:20:26.230
  • THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT DAVID DID.
  • 00:20:26.230 --> 00:20:28.270
  • HE SAID IN PSALM 131,
  • 00:20:28.270 --> 00:20:30.220
  • "I DON'T CONCERN MYSELF WITH
  • 00:20:30.220 --> 00:20:32.110
  • MATTERS THAT ARE TOO GREAT FOR
  • 00:20:32.110 --> 00:20:34.060
  • ME. I HAVE QUIETED AND STILLED
  • 00:20:34.060 --> 00:20:36.080
  • DAVID KNEW THAT SITUATION WITH
  • 00:20:38.150 --> 00:20:40.060
  • HIS LITTLE BABY WAS WAY OVER HIS
  • 00:20:40.060 --> 00:20:41.250
  • HEAD.
  • 00:20:41.250 --> 00:20:43.040
  • HE KNEW HE WOULD NEVER
  • 00:20:43.040 --> 00:20:44.030
  • UNDERSTAND IT SO HE DIDN'T GET
  • 00:20:44.030 --> 00:20:45.140
  • NEGATIVE AND BITTER.
  • 00:20:45.140 --> 00:20:46.210
  • HE RELEASED IT.
  • 00:20:46.210 --> 00:20:48.080
  • HE QUIETED AND STILLED HIS
  • 00:20:48.080 --> 00:20:49.230
  • SOUL.
  • 00:20:49.230 --> 00:20:51.110
  • WHEN YOU GO THROUGH SITUATIONS
  • 00:20:51.110 --> 00:20:52.250
  • THAT YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:20:52.250 --> 00:20:53.260
  • LET'S LEARN TO DO LIKE DAVID
  • 00:20:53.260 --> 00:20:55.090
  • AND SAY, "GOD, IT DOESN'T MAKE
  • 00:20:55.090 --> 00:20:56.230
  • SENSE. I DON'T KNOW WHY THIS
  • 00:20:56.230 --> 00:20:58.060
  • HAS HAPPENED. BUT I'M NOT GOING
  • 00:20:58.060 --> 00:20:59.140
  • TO GET BITTER AND UPSET AND
  • 00:20:59.140 --> 00:21:01.000
  • CONFUSED.
  • 00:21:01.000 --> 00:21:02.030
  • I'M GOING TO QUIET AND STILL MY
  • 00:21:02.030 --> 00:21:03.130
  • SOUL. WHY?
  • 00:21:03.130 --> 00:21:05.050
  • BECAUSE I KNOW GOD HAS APPOINTED
  • 00:21:05.050 --> 00:21:06.160
  • ANOTHER SEED.
  • 00:21:06.160 --> 00:21:07.290
  • FRIENDS, WHEN YOU CAN LET
  • 00:21:09.220 --> 00:21:11.050
  • THINGS GO AND NOT GET BITTER
  • 00:21:11.050 --> 00:21:12.250
  • AND UPSET AND DROP OUT OF CHURCH
  • 00:21:12.250 --> 00:21:15.000
  • AND START BLAMING GOD THEN THE
  • 00:21:15.000 --> 00:21:16.150
  • CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE WILL GO
  • 00:21:16.150 --> 00:21:17.270
  • GOD HAS SAID HE WILL TAKE WHAT
  • 00:21:19.120 --> 00:21:20.140
  • WAS MEANT FOR YOUR HARM AND USE
  • 00:21:20.140 --> 00:21:21.270
  • IT TO YOUR ADVANTAGE.
  • 00:21:21.270 --> 00:21:24.050
  • COUPLE.OUR ADVANTAGE.
  • 00:21:25.040 --> 00:21:26.060
  • THEY WERE GOING TO VISIT THEIR
  • 00:21:26.060 --> 00:21:27.000
  • RELATIVES.
  • 00:21:27.000 --> 00:21:27.260
  • IT WAS SEPTEMBER 11TH, THE DAY
  • 00:21:27.260 --> 00:21:29.040
  • OF THE ATTACKS ON OUR NATION.
  • 00:21:29.040 --> 00:21:31.080
  • EARLY IN THE MORNING ON THE WAY
  • 00:21:31.080 --> 00:21:32.270
  • TO THE AIRPORT THEY HAD A FLAT
  • 00:21:32.270 --> 00:21:34.190
  • TIRE AND ENDED UP MISSING THEIR
  • 00:21:34.190 --> 00:21:35.290
  • FLIGHT.
  • 00:21:35.290 --> 00:21:37.090
  • IT JUST SO HAPPENED THEIR PLANE

  • IF THEY HAD NOT HAD A FLAT TIRE
  • 00:21:41.090 --> 00:21:42.120
  • THEY WOULDN'T BE ALIVE TODAY.

  • OF COURSE, THEY WERE VERY
  • 00:21:44.120 --> 00:21:45.070
  • GRATEFUL.
  • 00:21:45.070 --> 00:21:46.050
  • NEW YORK CITY.
  • 00:21:47.120 --> 00:21:48.270
  • HE CALLED VERY FRANTICALLY,
  • 00:21:48.270 --> 00:21:50.190
  • VERY WORRIED AND THE YOUNG MAN
  • 00:21:50.190 --> 00:21:51.260
  • GAVE HIM THE GOOD NEWS THAT
  • 00:21:51.260 --> 00:21:53.030
  • THEY WEREN'T ON THAT FLIGHT.
  • 00:21:53.030 --> 00:21:54.200
  • THIS FATHER WAS A RETIRED

  • FIREFIGHTER THERE IN NEW YORK.
  • 00:21:56.050 --> 00:21:58.180

  • SEE, THIS FATHER WOULDN'T HAVE
  • 00:22:18.070 --> 00:22:19.130
  • ANYTHING TO DO WITH GOD.
  • 00:22:19.130 --> 00:22:21.080
  • NOT OPEN AT ALL. HIS SON HAD
  • 00:22:21.080 --> 00:22:22.170
  • TRIED AND TRIED TO SHARE
  • 00:22:22.170 --> 00:22:24.110
  • HIS FAITH WITH NO SUCCESS.
  • 00:22:24.110 --> 00:22:26.120
  • THE SON WAS SO HEARTBROKEN,
  • 00:22:26.120 --> 00:22:27.290

  • GOD.
  • 00:22:33.070 --> 00:22:35.020
  • WAS A KNOCK ON THEIR DOOR.
  • 00:22:36.020 --> 00:22:37.110
  • IT WAS A YOUNG COUPLE HOLDING A

  • RESCUING HER AND CARRYING HER
  • 00:22:55.010 --> 00:22:57.000

  • RECEIVING CHRIST.
  • 00:23:04.160 --> 00:23:06.130
  • SHE SAID, "WHEN WE GOT TO THE

  • BOTTOM FLOOR YOUR DAD KNELT
  • 00:23:07.190 --> 00:23:08.250
  • DOWN ON HIS KNEES AND HE ASKED

  • INJUSTICE AND BROUGHT GOOD
  • 00:23:51.100 --> 00:23:53.210
