TODAY I LOVE WHAT GOD IS GOING


TO DO.


YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT YET, BUT


THIS IS AMAZING.


IT'S A GOOD JOB.


YEAH.


IT'S A GOOD JOB.


TALKING ABOUT IMPACTS AND HOW


PEOPLE MAKE IMPACTS IN OUR


LIVES.


AND HOW SOMETIMES WE HAVE


MENTORS IN OUR LIVES.


HAS ANYBODY MADE A DEEP IMPACT


IN YOUR LIFE AND GUIDED YOU


ALONG.


YOU KNOW, I HAD A LOT OF


PEOPLE THAT MADE IMPACTS IN MY


LIFE.


MY MOM AND DAD THE MOST.


I MEAN, I JUST LOVE THAT.


THEY'RE MY HEROES.


THERE WAS ONE MAN IN PARTICULAR,


IT WAS IN MY LIFE GOING IN


A DIFFERENT DIRECTION.


HE WAS A CAMPUS COP.


HE SAID JESUS WAS -- HE WAS


INCREDIBLE AND, I SAID, WOW.


TELL ME ABOUT HIM.


HE TOLD ME ABOUT A JESUS AND IT


CHANGED MY LIFE.


IT DID, AYE.


UH-HUH.


PRETTY COOL.


ON TODAY'S SHOW, YOU WILL SEE


HOW GOD IS IMPACTING LIVES AND


AS A RESULT HOW PEOPLE ARE


MAKING RADICAL CHANGES.


FIRST YOU WILL SEE ONE GROUP


IS SPREADING THE GOSPEL TO SOME


OF THE DARKEST PLACES IN NORTH


AMERICA AND SEE HOW GOD IS DOING


THERE.


YOU WILL SEE HOW THE TEAM AT


NIGHT STRIKE ARE LEANING ON GOD


TO KEEP THEM SAFE AS THEY SPEAK


TO THE HEARTS OF THE HOMELESS.


AND BEN CARLSON WHO WAS ON


HIS DREAM TO PLAYING IN THE


MAJOR LEAGUES, THAT IS UNTIL ONE


FOUL BALL CHANGED THE COURSE OF


HIS LIFE.


YOU'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENED THAT


SUMMER DAY TO BRING A BALLPLAYER


HIS KNEES.


FIRST, BUILDING RELATIONSHIPS


WITH THOSE OF HAVE BEEN


FORGOTTEN.


[ MUSIC ]


WE GO WITH -- ADDICTS.


WE SEE PROSTITUTES AND ALL SORTS


OF DIFFERENT CHARACTERS OF


PEOPLE OUT HERE.


WE WILL FIND THE DARKEST PART IN


THE DARKEST CITY AND THAT'S


WHERE WE WILL GO.


WE BRING THE LIGHT OF JESUS


CHRIST INTO THE DARKNESS.


IT IS INTERESTING TO SEE THE


PEOPLE THAT COME OUT.


WHETHER IT'S A MAN OR A WOMAN OR


A YOUNG GIRL OR A YOUNG BOY THE


WAY, THAT GOD USES THOSE PEOPLE


TO BRING HIS WORD.


WHETHER IT IS JUST A HUG OR


ACKNOWLEDGE OR A LOT OF PATHETIC


GOES ON OUT HERE, BUT HE LOVES


THE HECK OUT OF PEOPLE OUT HERE.


I GO TO WALMART NOW AND I BUY


THE GREAT VALUE LOAFS OF BREAD


FOR $1.50 PIECE, I BUY TWO LOAFS


OF THOSE AND I BUY THE TURKEY ON


THE TUNA FISH AND I GO TO AND


BUY 10 BAGS OF SOCKS AND THOSE


FOR $7 A PIECE AND YEAH,


MINISTRY WHEN WE GO OUT TO THE


STREET AND DO GOOD OUT THERE.


I DO THAT EVERY TIME AND TELL


PEOPLE YOU DON'T NEED A LOT.


YOU JUST NEED SOMETHING TO


ENGAGE CONVERSATION.


A LOT OF TIMES THE SANDWICH AND


THE SOCKS FOR A HOMELESS PERSON


THAT IS GOLD.


OFTENTIMES YOU FIND YOURSELF


ENGAGING IN CONVERSATION THAT


YOU COULDN'T HAVE STARTED


WITHOUT THE FOOD.


I WENT TO CHURCH, I PRAYED,


BUT THIS IS DIFFERENT.


THIS IS REALLY LIKE, I REALLY


FEEL A CONNECTION, I DIFFERENT


KIND OF CONNECTION WITH GOD WHEN


I'M OUT HERE WITH, WITH THIS


GROUP.


THAT YOU WOULD LOVE.


YOU'RE NOT FORGOTTEN.


OKAY?


YOU'RE NOT FORGOTTEN.


YOU SEE A LOT OF HEALING.


YOU SEE PEOPLE BREAKDOWN AND


JUST START CRYING BECAUSE


SOMEBODY DELIVERS THE WORD FROM


GOD.


MAYBE THEY LOST FAITH OR


WHATEVER.


IT IS VERY SIMPLE, BUT YOU


ALSO HAVE THE BOLDNESS TO WALK


IN THE HOLY SPEAR "KNOW HE IS


GOING TO PROTECT YOU.


YOU SEE PEOPLE AND THEIR


FACES ARE COMPLETELY CHANGED.


IT IS JUST, WHATEVER WAS GOING


ON AT THAT TIME IN THEIR LIFE,


ALL OF THE SUDDEN SOMETHING CAME


IN.


SOMETHING VERY POWERFUL.


SOMETHING UNDENIABLE CAME IN AND


JUST WIPED EVERYTHING AWAY, EVEN


FOR THAT SPLIT SECOND.


MAN, JUST USE IT FOR WHO HE


IS AND WHAT HE IS AND SEE THE


DARKNESS AND BRING HIM INTO THE


DARKNESS.


IT IS VERY POWERFUL.


I BELIEVE LIVES ARE CHANGED.


YOU KNOW, IN THE INSTANT.


ALL IT TAKES IS AN INSTANT AND


LIVES ARE CHANGED.


SMILE, TOO.


SMILE.


ALL RIGHT.


[ MUSIC ]


WHAT A GREAT STORY.


GOD BLESSED THOSE PEOPLE.


YOU KNOW, MY MOM AND HER FRIENDS


USED TO GO DOWN THE MAIN AND


HASTINGS AND THE CORDOVA STREET


AVENUE IN VANCOUVER SIXTY YEARS


AGO AND TELL PEOPLE ABOUT JESUS.


THEY WOULD SING SONGS.


MY MOM WOULD PLAY AN ACCORDION


AND LEAD PEOPLE TO JESUS RIGHT


ON THE STREET THERE MIGHT BE


SOME PEOPLE OUT THERE RIGHT NOW


AND YOU'RE THINKING ARE THESE


PEOPLE CRAZY.


GOING OUT ONTO THE STREETS WITH


HOMELESS PEOPLE AND PRAYING WITH


THEM, GIVING THEM WORDS FROM GOD


AND FEEDING THEM?


IN LUKE 14, THERE IS A WONDERFUL


PARABLE THAT JESUS HIMSELF TOLD.


IT WAS ABOUT A MAN, A MASTER.


HE THROW A GREAT BANQUET, BUT


HIS GUESTS KEPT GIVING HIM


EXCUSES WHY THEY COULDN'T COME.


SO THE MASTER TOLD HIS SERVANTS


IN VERSE 21, GO OUT COOK FOOD.


GO INTO THE STREETS AND THE


ALLEYS OF THE TOWN.


BRING IN THE POOR, THE CRIPPLED,


THE BLIND AND THE LAME.


THEN THE SERVANT REPORTED BACK,


WE DID THAT AND THERE IS MORE


ROOM.


SO THE MASTER TOLD HIS SERVANT


GO OUT TO THE ROADS AND COUNTRY


LANES AND COMPEL THEM, COMPEL


THEM TO COME IN SO MY HOUSE WILL


BE FULL.


WELL, WE'RE NOT CRAZY.


WE JUST KNOW THAT WE NEED


A SAVIOR AND DEEP INSIDE OF YOU,


YOU KNOW THERE IS A PLACE THAT


NEEDS THE SAVIOR, TOO.


MAY I QUOTE THE MOST REPEATED


AND PROFOUND VERSE IN THE BIBLE.


JOHN 3:16.


FOR GOD SO LOVED, HE SO LOVED


THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONE


AND ONLY SON THAT WHOEVER


BELIEVES IN HIM WILL NOT PERISH,


BUT HAS ETERNAL LIFE.


YOU MAY NOT BE HOMELESS AND


LIVING ON THE STREETS, BUT YOU


MIGHT BE VERY LOST.


BRIAN, THAT'S WHY WE ARE HERE


EVERY DAY.


TO LET YOU KNOW THERE IS HOPE.


THERE IS A WAY.


THERE IS A TRUTH.


HIS NAME IS JESUS.


AMEN.


I BELIEVE THAT NOT ONLY ARE


THEIR PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN


BROUGHT TO CHRIST, THOSE NUMBERS


ARE ON THE SCREEN FOR YOU FOR


ANY TIME TO CALL.


I BELIEVE JUST LIKE MIKE AND


THOSE OWN NIGHT STRIKE, YOU


MIGHT FEEL THAT YOU HAVE A CRAZY


IDEA.


IT WAS NOT A BIG ORGANIZATION,


IT WAS ONE MAN OBEYING THE WORD


OF GOD AND LOVING PEOPLE.


GO OUT THERE AND DO WHAT GOD


TELLS YOU, GOD BLESS.


TOO OFTEN WE CARRY BAGGAGE


FROM OUR PAST.


YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE.


IT AFFECTS EVERYTHING AND


EVERYONE IN YOUR LIVES.


IT IS ALWAYS THERE, WEIGHING US


DOWN AND KEEPING US FROM


ACHIEVING TRUE HAPPINESS.


BUT DO YOU KNOW GOD NEVER MEANT


FOR US TO BE TRAPPED IN THE


PAST?


YOU CAN BE FREE OF YOUR BAGGAGE.


LEARN HOW GOD'S FORGIVENESS


LEADS TO CHANGED LIVES AND NEW


BEGINNINGS.


CALL "THE 700 CLUB CANADA."


[ MUSIC ]


THE WISEST MAN WHO EVER


LIVED, KING SOLOMON, WROTE IN


ECCLESIASTICS THAT RAIN COMES ON


THE JUST AND THE UNJUST.


GOOD AND BAD, IT HAPPENS TO THEM


ALL.


HE EVEN SAYS THAT HE FOUND IT TO


BE A MOST UNFAIR THING THAT TIME


AND CHANCE COME UP ON THE


RIGHTEOUS AND THE UNRIGHTEOUS.


I HAVE LIVED THROUGH DAYS IN MY


LIFETIME AND I KNOW THAT YOU


HAVE, TOO.


WHERE WE GET THROWN A CURVEBALL.


THIS PAST COUPLE OF MONTHS


FAMILY FRIENDS GAVE BIRTH TO


A DOWN SYNDROME BABY, THAT'S


A CURVEBALL.


LET'S YEAR MY FRIEND'S


15-YEAR-OLD BOY DIED SUDDENLY IN


THE NIGHT AND MY FRIEND LOST HER


HUSBAND WITHIN EIGHT DAYS OF


A DIAGNOSIS OF CANCER.


STILL ANOTHER FRIEND'S SON,


RECENTLY COMMITTED SUICIDE,


THOSE ARE CURVEBALLS THAT WE


DON'T SEE COMING.


YOU FIND YOURSELF DEALING WITH


PAIN THAT YOU DON'T ANTICIPATE


AND IT LEAVES YOU REELING WITH


FEAR, ANGER CONFUSION AND AN


ACHE IN YOUR HEART THAT DOESN'T


GO AWAY.


I DON'T HAVE ANY ANSWER HOW TO


FEEL IN YOUR HEART AT THOSE


TERRIBLE MOMENTS, I KNOW ONLY


ONE THING, OUR HOPE IS IN THE


NAME OF THE LORD.


LIFE CAN BE PAINFUL.


GOD IS THERE.


THERE IS NOTHING ELSE THAT WE


CAN RELY ON SO ASSUREDLY AS THAT


ONE STATEMENT.


IT BECOMES A LIFE PRESERVER ON


THE OCEAN OF DESPAIR.


HE IS A TETHER IN THE FALL.


HE IS ROCK WHEN WE FIND


OURSELVES SINKING IN QUICK SAND.


HE HAS THE ARMS WE FALL INTO,


WHEN OUR LEGS CAN'T RUN ANYMORE.


JESUS HE IS OUR COUNSELOR IN THE


LATE HOURS OF THE NIGHT WHEN NO


ONE ELSE IS UP.


HE IS THE COMPANION, CONSOLER,


COMFORTER, CHERISHED FRIEND WHO


STAYS CLOSER THAN A BROTHER IN


TIMES OF DISASTER.


HE UPHOLDS HIS STRENGTH AND


FORTIFIES.


HE SECURES AND REINFORCES OUR


VERY LIFE, WHEN WE MAY NOT KNOW


HOW TO LIVE ONE MORE DAY.


HE'S THE PROVIDER OF SOLUTIONS


AND THE SUSTAINERS OF OUR


COURAGE TO TAKE JUST ONE MORE


STEP.


I KNOW THERE IS SOME OF YOU OUT


THERE TODAY AND YOU'RE DEALING


WITH A CURVEBALL THAT YOU DID


NOT SEE HEADING YOUR WAY.


I REALIZE THAT YOU CAN BE A VERY


DESPERATE PLACE.


MY WORDS, THEY CAN DO-NOTHING TO


SOLVE YOUR PAIN, BUT CAN I TELL


YOU, THERE IS A MAN, HIS NAME IS


JESUS, HE LOVES YOU MORE THAN


YOU COULD EVER, EVER KNOW.


HE IS NOT A DISTANT GOD.


HE IS RIGHT THERE, RIGHT BESIDE


YOU.


HE IS THE WARMTH THAT YOU FEEL


NOW COMING OVER YOUR BODY.


IF YOU WILL DARE TO JUST TRUST


HIM.


WOULD YOU JUST GIVE HIM ONE


CHANCE TO HELP YOU RIGHT NOW?


FATHER, I PRAY FOR THAT ONE


WHO'S HURTING SO TERRIBLY, THEY


FEEL THEY WILL NOT MAKE IT.


I ASK YOU JESUS TO REACH INTO


THE DEPTHS OF HIS UNIMAGINABLE


PAIN.


I PRAY, HOLY SPIRIT THAT YOU


WILL EMBODY, EMBRACE AND HOLD


TIGHTLY THIS ONE WHO NEEDS YOU.


YOU ARE THE ONLY SOURCE OF HOPE


THAT WE CAN CLING TO IN SUCH


TIMES OF TROUBLE.


WE SPEAK THE NAME OF JESUS AND


RISE UP IN THE POWER TO ACCEPT


THE PROVISION THAT ONLY GOD CAN


BRING.


THANK YOU, LAURA-LYNN.


YOU KNOW, AS A PASTOR, EVEN IN


HIS MOMENTS PEOPLE ASK WHERE IS


GOD DURING THESE TIMES?


THERE IS A FAMOUS POEM CALLED


"FOOTPRINTS."


LORD WHEN I NEEDED YOU THE MOST


I ONLY SAW ONE SET OF


FOOTPRINTS.


GOD, REPLIES, IT IS BECAUSE IN


THAT ONE SET, I WAS CARRYING


YOU.


A VERY FAMOUS VERSE, JOBE,


19:25, I KNOW MY REDEEMER LIVES


AND I WILL SEE HIM IN THE FLESH.


TRUST IN GOD.


CALL THE NUMBERS ON THE SCREEN.


THAT PRAYER, IF YOU PRAYED WITH


LAURA-LYNN AND RECEIVED THAT


PRAYER, 1-855-759-0700.


YOU WILL GET THROUGH THIS.


BECAUSE IT CAME TO PASS AND NOT


TO STAY.


GOD SEES DEATH COMPLETELY


DIFFERENT THAN WE DO.


HE'S WITH YOU AND WILL NEVER


LEAVE YOU OR FORSAKE YOU.

[ MUSIC ]


WELCOME BACK.


UP NEXT -- A YOUNG BOY'S LIFE


HANGS IN THE BALANCE AFTER


A FOUL BALL STRIKES HIM DIRECTLY


IN THE HEAD.


ALL I KNEW THAT, THAT I DID


WAS HURT SOMEBODY.


I IMMEDIATELY JUST STARTED


CRYING IN THE BOX.


I SAW A LIMP KID OVER HIS


PARENT'S SHOULDER.


AT THAT MOMENT WHEN I HIT THAT


BASEBALL EVERYTHING CHANGED.


BEN CARLSON LOVED BASEBALL.


HIS POWERFUL SWING HAD MAJOR


LEAGUE POTENTIAL.


HE BECAME AN ALL AMERICAN AT


MISSOURI STATE.


THE SLUGGING FIRST BASEMAN WAS


DRAFTED TO THE CLEVELAND INDIANS


AND ASSIGNED TO THEIR FARM TEAM,


THE SCRAPPERS.


HE WAS GROOMED TO BE A PART OF


THE FRANCHISES FUTURE.


BEN BELIEVED NOTHING COULD STOP


HIM.


YOU BASICALLY FELT


INVINCIBLE, YOU HAD THE WORLD IN


YOUR HANDS.


YOU COULD SEE THE BIG LEAGUES


RIGHT AHEAD OF YOU AND ANYBODY


TELLING YOU HOW GREAT OF A


BASEBALL PLAYER YOU ARE.


YOU HAVE A BASEBALL CARD THAT


COMES OUT WITH YOUR PICTURE ON


IT.


SO, YOU FEEL PRETTY SPECIAL


ABOUT YOURSELF.


YOU FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE


ACCOMPLISHED SOMETHING IN LIFE.


BASICALLY I WAS LEAVING THE


DREAM.


BUT JUST THREE MONTHS INTO


HIS PROFESSIONAL CAREER, THE


DREAM SUDDENLY CAME TO AN END.


IT WAS A NIGHT GAME IN SEPTEMBER


OF 2009.


CHAD AND NICOLE SAT WITH THEIR


4-YEAR-OLD BOY, LUKE, IN THE


FRONT ROW DOWN THE FIRST


BASELINE WHEN BEN CAME TO BAT.


GOT UP TO THE BATTER'S BOX.


OF COURSE, I'M ALWAYS THINKING


I'M GOING HIT A HOME RUN EVERY


TIME I GET UP TO THE PLATE.


THE NEXT THING I KNEW THE


PITCHER THROWS A CURVEBALL.


AS A LEFT-HANDER I WAS A LITTLE


AS A LEFT-HANDER I WAS A LITTLE


BIT OUT IN FRONT OF IT.


I HIT A FOUL BALL INTO THE


STANDS.


THAT'S WHEN THE BALL -- HIT LUKE


IN THE HEAD.


CHAD STARTED REACTING I GUESS


I REALLY DIDN'T QUITE KNOW WHAT


HAPPENED.


A COUPLE OF SECONDS LATER IT


DAWNED ON ME HE HAD GOTTEN HIT


BY THE BASEBALL.


AT THAT POINT IT WAS JUST PANIC


TRYING TO FIGURE OUT.


YOU COULDN'T SEE ANYTHING WRONG


OTHER THAN HE WAS NOT


RESPONDING.


SEE HIS PARENTS PICK HIM UP


AND IMMEDIATELY JUST RUN UP THE


STAIRS OF THE STADIUM AND RUN


OUT OF THE BALLPARK.


I NEVER HEARD A -- STADIUM SO


QUIET.


BEN MANAGED TO FINISH HIS AT


BAT.


HE STRUGGLED THROUGH THE REST OF


THE GAME AS HOSPITAL UPDATES


ABOUT LUKE'S CONDITION WERE


PASSED ONTO THE DUGOUT.


AFTER THE GAME, BEN LEARNED THAT


LUKE MIGHT NOT LIVE THROUGH THE


NIGHT.


I REMEMBER JUST PRAYING,


PROBABLY A LOT OF PEOPLE WHEN


BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO THEM,


THAT'S WHEN THEY COME TO GOD.


I SAID, LORD, JUST SAVE HIS


LIFE.


HE WAS UNCONSCIOUS.


WE WERE IN THE ER.


THE DOCTORS CAME OUT AND SAID


THAT HE WAS IN EMERGENCY


SURGERY.


THINGS JUST WENT FROM BAD TO


WORSE.


YOU'RE WONDERING WOW, HOW CAN


THIS BE.


IT WAS JUST A BASEBALL.


LUKE'S VITAL SIGNS FINALLY


STABILIZED, BUT HE REMAINED IN


A COMA.


BEN WAS OVERCOME WITH GUILT AND


WENT TO CHECK ON LUKE AND HIS


FAMILY IN THE HOSPITAL.


IT'S THE FIRST TIME WE MET


HIM FACE-TO-FACE.


COME DOWN THE HALLWAY.


YOU COULD TELL HE WAS A BASEBALL


PLAYER WALKING DOWN THE HALLWAY.


HE CAME AND GAVE US A BIG HUG.


HE WAS IN TEARS.


WE WERE IN TEARS.


THEY ACCEPTED ME INTO THEIR


FAMILY RIGHT THERE.


FOR THEM TO DO THAT WAS SO


AMAZING BECAUSE MOST PEOPLE


MIGHT BLAME ME.


MOST PEOPLE MIGHT -- YOU KNOW,


THEY MIGHT JUST REJECT ME.


BUT LUKE'S PARENTS DIDN'T


BLAME BEN INSTEAD, THEY FORGAVE


HIM.


IT'S THE BEGINNING OF A DEEP


FRIENDSHIP.


LUKE'S CONDITION IMPROVED AND HE


WAS RELEASED FROM THE HOSPITAL.


BEN CONTINUED TO PONDER WHAT


HAPPENED.


FORCING HIM TO EVALUATED HIS


LIFE.


EVERY SINGLE DAY YOU'RE


EXPECTED TO PRODUCE.


YOU'RE EXPECTED TO SHOW YOUR


TALENT, TO, TO SHOW THAT THEIR


INVESTMENT IS PAYING OFF FOR


THEM.


WHEN YOU'RE DRIVING BY THAT


AND -- THINGS AREN'T GOING SO


WELL, UM, YOU START REALLY KIND


OF LOOKING AT WHO YOU ARE AS A


PERSON.


I HAD JUST HAD TO BE HONEST WITH


MYSELF.


THAT BROKE ME EVEN MORE BUT THAT


GAVE ME FREEDOM.


I REALIZED THAT EVERYTHING THAT


I WAS DOING DIDN'T MATTER.


YOU REALIZE THAT YOU NEED GOD.


YOU REALIZE THAT YOU NEED


SOMEBODY -- BIGGER AND BETTER


THAN YOURSELF.


TO LIVE THROUGH YOU AND HELP YOU


WITH THINGS OF THIS LIFE.


THE INDIANS PROMOTED BEN TO


THEIR SINGLE-A TEAM.


HIS HITTING SLUMP CONTINUED AND


HIS DRIVE TO REACH THE MAJOR


LEAGUES SEEM TO FADE.


ONE DAY BEN SHOWED UP EARLY FOR


HIS PREGAME ROUTINE.


I REMEMBER GOING OUTSIDE FOR


ONE REASON AND I SAT OUTSIDE OF


THE LOCKER ROOM AND I JUST


STARTED BALLING, I SAID JESUS


SAVE MY LIFE.


BECAUSE I DIDN'T KNOW WHERE ELSE


TO TURN.


HE WAS THE ONLY ONE I COULD CALL


ON.


SO, HE WAS THE ONLY TRUTH THAT I


KNEW TO CALL OUT TO.


THAT DAY WAS -- LIFE-CHANGING.


I TRULY, TRULY, TRULY BELIEVE


THAT WAS THE DAY THAT GOD GOT


A HOLD OF MY HEART.


BEN'S CONTRACT WAS NOT


RENEWED FOR THE 2010 SEASON AND


HE WALKED AWAY FROM THE GAME


THAT HE LOVED.


HE MARID AND RECENTLY BECAME


A DAD.


BEN RETURNED TO SCHOOL TO FINISH


HIS DEGREE WHERE HE PLAYS


FOOTBALL AS THE HORNETS MIDDLE


LINEBACKER.


WHILE LUKE CONTINUES HIS


RECOVERY.


HE AND BEN CONTINUE THEIR


FRIENDSHIP.


ALONG THE WAY, BEN HAS FOUND


ANOTHER FRIEND WHO HAS CHANGED


HIS LIFE.


YOU DO GET TO THAT POINT


WHERE YOU NEED HIM MORE THAN


ANYTHING, BUT WHEN YOU TRULY


EXPERIENCE HIM FOR YOURSELF AND


THOSE MOMENTS OF DESPERATION


WHERE YOU NEED A SAVIOR, THROUGH


THE LAST -- YEAR AND A HALF,


I'VE BEEN FOLLOWING HIM, IT'S


BEEN THE MOST AMAZING JOURNEY I


HAVE EVER TAKEN IN MY ENTIRE


LIFE.


I WOULD GIVE UP EVERYTHING OF MY


PAST LIFE TO CONTINUE TO FOLLOW


HIM.


WOW.


WHEN YOU LOOK AT HOW GOD IS ABLE


TO TURN SOME OF THE MOST


NIGHTMARISH CONDITIONS AROUND --


YOU KNOW WHEN YOU LOOK AT BEN,


HE WAS THAT BIG SLUGGER, BUT


WHEN HE HIT LITTLE LUKE, THAT


REALLY TOOK THE AIR OUT OF ALL


OF HIS, HIS DREAMS OF, OF -- OF


EVEN JUST BEING THIS --


INVINCIBLE SLUGGER.


DID YOU NOTICE WHAT GOD DID IN


THAT MOMENT AS WELL?


HIS HEART WAS OVERCOME AT THAT


MOMENT WITH INCREDIBLE GUILT.


I BELIEVE TODAY SOME OF YOU ARE


PROBABLY DEALING WITH THE SAME


PROBLEMS YOURSELF OF GUILT OF


THE PAST.


MAYBE YOU DID SOMETHING HAD A


BONE HEAD EXPERIENCE WHERE YOU


JUST KNEW IT WAS NOT RIGHT WHAT


YOU DID.


YOU DRANK SOMETHING, YOU WENT


SOMEWHERE, YOU DID SOMETHING,


MAYBE YOU LEFT YOUR FAMILY.


YOU GOT TO COME BACK.


GOD IS THE GOD OF TO THE COME


BACK.


I BELIEVE THAT HE WANTS YOU TO


COME BACK.


JUST LIKE THAT PARODICAL TODAY.


ANOTHER THING THAT I LOVE IS THE


SCRIPTURE HAS SOMETHING TO SAY


ABOUT THIS.


IT ALSO COMES FROM THE BOOK OF


JOBE.


THAT'S ONE OF THOSE OLD BOOKS IN


THE BIBLE.


A VERY SIMPLE BOOK.


IT TALKS ABOUT A MAN WHO WENT


THROUGH STRUGGLES.


BUT I LOVE WHAT HAPPENS IN THE


14th CHAPTER IN THE 7 THROUGH


9 VERSE.


IT SAYS THERE IS HOPE FOR A TREE


IF IT IS CUT DOWN, IT SHALL BUD


AGAIN AT THE SCENT OF WATER.


I BELIEVE THE POWER OF THE HOLY


SPIRIT IS BLOWING RIGHT NOW AND


IT IS TELLING YOU I'M GIVING YOU


SECOND CHANCE.


TAKE IT, RUN WITH IT.


YOU SEE HE IS A LINEBACKER NOW.


HE'S GOING AFTER THE OPPOSITION


AND GOD WANTS YOU TO DO THE


SAME.


COME ON IN, LAURA-LYNN.


YOU KNOW, BRIAN, SO OFTEN


WHEN GOD DOES ALLOW A CURVEBALL


INTO OUR LIVES IT CAN RADICALLY


CHANGE US.


SOMETHING HAPPENS THAT'S REALLY


BAD AND NEGATIVE.


WE CAN'T SEE HOW THE OUTCOME IS


GOING TO BE POSITIVE.


YET GOD MAKES ALL THINGS NEW AND


TAKES EVERYTHING THAT THE ENEMY


MEANS FOR, FOR EVIL IN YOUR LIFE


AND HE TURNS IT AROUND INTO


SOMETHING GOOD.


SO WHEN THE ENEMY HAS COME


AGAINST YOU AND DECEIVED YOU AND


WALKED IN SOME OF THE WAYS BRIAN


WAS TALKING ABOUT.


YOU KNOW, LEAVING YOUR FAMILY.


GOING OFF IN THE WRONG


DIRECTION.


GOD, IF YOU WILL JUST FALL TO


YOUR KNEES AND GIVE IT TO HIM,


GOD WILL TURN EVERYTHING AROUND


AND YOU WILL HAVE A MAGNIFICENT


FUTURE AHEAD OF YOU.


AMEN.


I WOULD LIKE TO GET SOMETHING IN


YOUR HANDS, BUT WE HAVE TO DO


SOME BUSINESS WITH GOD, BECAUSE


IF YOU HIT A FOUL BALL IN YOUR


LIFE AND IT IS HURT SOME PEOPLE,


TODAY I REALLY BELIEVE GOD IS


SAYING THERE IS HOPE FOR YOU AND


YOU NEED TO COME BACK AS WELL.


HEY, LET'S DO SOME BUSINESS WITH


GOD AND THEN CALL THE NUMBER ON


THE SCREEN AFTER YOU HAVE PRAYED


THIS PRAYER WITH ME.


BECAUSE YOU HAVE BEEN AWAY TOO


LONG.


THERE IS A GAME TO BE PLAYED.


IT IS THE GAME OF LIFE THAT YOU


HAVE TO GET BACK INTO.


PRAY WITH ME.


FATHER GOD, I HAVE MESSED UP.


I HAVE BLOWN IT.


I ACCEPTED YOU, JESUS, AT ONE


TIME BUT I PUT YOU ON THE SHELF


AND LIVED MY LIFE.


NOW I SEE WHAT IS THE PROPHET OF


MAN TO GAIN THE WORLD AND LOSE


HIS SOUL.


I'M NOW COMING BACK TO YOU.


I ASK YOU, WOULD YOU COME INTO


MY LIFE.


I AM A SINNER.


I CONFESS IT.


I TURN FROM MY SIN AND TURN TO


YOU AND GIVE YOU MY PERSONAL


PERMISSION FOR YOUR


HEAVENLY INVENTION.


PLEASE MAKE WHAT YOU WANT ME TO


BE IN, JESUS' NAME.


AMEN.


AMEN.


IF YOU PRAYED THAT PRAYER


WITH BRIAN WOULD YOU GIVE US


A CALL AT 1-855-759-0700?


YOU KNOW, OPERATORS ARE


STANDING BY.


WE'VE GOT SOME INCREDIBLE PRAYER


REQUESTS THAT HAVE BEEN COMING


IN.


WE THANK YOU FOR THOSE PRAYER


REQUESTS BECAUSE THEY ARE BEING


PRAYED FOR AROUND THE CLOCK AT


OUR OFFICE.


I REALLY BELIEVE THAT GOD IS


DOING MIRACLES IN THIS NATION


RIGHT NOW, BUT IF, IF YOU MISSED


ANY OF OUR STORIES AND YOU THINK


YOUR STORY CAN INSPIRE OTHERS,


GIVE US A CALL OR WRITE US.


WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR ABOUT IT.


THE ADDRESS WILL APPEAR ON THE


SCREEN RIGHT AFTER THE SHOW IS


OVER.


WE LOOK FORWARD TO BEING WITH


YOU ALL AGAIN.


UNTIL NEXT TIME, I'M BRIAN


WARREN.


I'M LAURA-LYNN TYLER


THOMPSON.


HAVE A GREAT DAY, CANADA.
