700 Club Canada: September 6, 2012

Watch the 700 Club Canada for September 6, 2012. Read Transcript


HELLO, I'M BRIAN WARREN.

AND I'M LAURA LYNN TYLER

THOMPSON.

WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

WELL, YOU KNOW,

RELATIONSHIPS ARE INTERESTING

BECAUSE YOU'RE DEALING WITH

MOVING PARTS, ARE YOU GOOD AT

RELATIONSHIPS, LAURA LYNN?

I'M FAIRLY GOOD, IT'S ONE OF

THE THINGS I PRIDE MYSELF ON, I

HAVE LONG LASTING FRIENDS, YOU

KNOW THE FRIENDS THAT HAVE BEEN

WITH YOU SINCE HIGH SCHOOL,

YOU'VE BEEN THROUGH HELL AND

HIGH WATER TOGETHER, AND I HAVE6

A WONDERFUL HUSBAND WHO ADORES

ME, RIGHT, HUN, AND I HAVE

CHILDREN WHO LOVE ME AND YOU

REALLY LIKE ME, I SENSE THAT

EVERY DAY.

I DO.

AS A PASTOR, ONE OF THE THINGS

THAT I PRAY FOR IS GOD WILL

HELP ME WORK WITH

RELATIONSHIPS, AND I'VE GOT

PEOPLE THAT I HAVE KNOWN

FOREVER.

YOU'RE A PRETTY GOOD GUY.

TODAY KRISTI WATTS SITS DOWN

WITH PASTOR AND AUTHOR MYLES

MONROE TO BRING SOME HOPE TO

YOU MARRIED-MINDED SINGLES OUT

THERE AND OFFER SOME VERY

IMPORTANT ADVICE FOR BUILDING

HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS.

AND YOU'LL SEE THE STORY OF

LINDEN AND CHERYL ALLEN,

THEY'VE BEEN MARRIED ABOUT 25

YEARS BUT ONLY RECENTLY DID

THEY LEARN WHAT IT MEANT TO BE

A HUSBAND AND A

WIFE, TODAY YOU'LL SEE HOW A

RECOMMITMENT TO GOD HAS

COMPLETELY REVOLUTIONIZED THEIR

LIVES AND THEIR MARRIAGE.

AND LAURA LYNN CONTINUES HER

SERIES ON WHAT YOU BELIEVE,

CANADA, AS SHE CHATS WITH A

COUPLE OF WOMEN ON WHAT THEY

LOOK FOR IN A MAN.

THERE YOU GO, BUT FIRST,

IMPORTANT ADVICE ON DATING.

I SPOKE WITH A LOT OF MEN

AND WOMEN, MANY OF THEM HAD

LOST HOPE, THEY FELT

DISCOURAGED, THEY FELT LIKE,

YOU KNOW, CAN I EVER LOVE AGAIN

AND IF I LOVE AGAIN, CAN I

TRUST AGAIN, AND ALL THESE IFS,

AND ALL THESE QUESTIONS, SO I

STARTED TO THINK MYSELF, HOW

CAN WE GIVE PEOPLE HOPE?

WHEN I THINK, FIRST OF ALL,

ALL OF LIFE IS AN ACT OF FAITH,

IT'S MORE FAITH THAN HOPE, AND

IT IS FAITH THAT GIVES YOU HOPE8

AND FAITH IS SOMETHING THAT HAS

TO DO WITH YOU TRUSTING SOMEONE

THAT MAY DISAPPOINT YOU.

WHEN YOU GO TO BUY A CAR AND

PURCHASE A CAR AND YOU PAY THE

MONEY, YOU DON'T KNOW THAT

EVERYTHING THEY SAY ABOUT THAT

CAR IS TRUE.

EVERYTHING IS AN ACT OF FAITH,

AND SO I THINK THAT'S WHERE

TRUST COMES IN AGAIN.

FAITH PRODUCES TRUST, YOU KNOW,

I HAVE TO LEARN TO TRUST A

PERSON, NOW, TRUST IS NOT A

GIFT, AND TRUST IS NOT A GIFT

OF THE HOLY SPIRIT EITHER,

TRUST IS A PRODUCT OF TEST OVER

TIME.

HOW DO THEY RESPOND WHEN THINGS

GO WRONG, HOW DO THEY REACT

WHEN THINGS GO GOOD, WHAT DO

THEY DO WHEN THEY ARE

DISAPPOINTED, WHAT IS THEIR

TEMPERAMENT WHEN THINGS DON'T

WORK OUT THE WAY

THEY WANT IT, THE QUESTION WE

ASK IS DO YOU LOVE ME, THAT'S

THE WRONG QUESTION.

THE RIGHT QUESTION SHOULD BE,

DO YOU LOVE YOU.

WE NEVER ASK THAT QUESTION.

THAT'S TRUE.

A PERSON WHO HATES

THEMSELVES CANNOT LOVE YOU, A

PERSON WHO HAS DEEP LOW

SELF-ESTEEM FOR THEMSELVES,

THEY CAN NEVER PUT ESTIMATE

VALUE ON YOU BECAUSE YOU CAN

ONLY LOVE PEOPLE TO THE SAME

DEGREE YOU LOVE YOURSELF

BECAUSE ACCORDING TO JESUS

CHRIST HIMSELF, HE SAID THESE

WORDS, THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT

IN THE LAW IS NOT TO LOVE

ANOTHER PERSON, IS TO LOVE GOD

FIRST AND HE DIDN'T SAY LOVE

YOUR NEIGHBOR, HE SAID LOVE

YOURSELF FIRST AND LOVE YOUR

NEIGHBOR TO THE SAME DEGREE

THAT YOU LOVE YOURSELF, WHICH

MEANS THAT IF YOU DON'T LOVE

YOURSELF, I AM IN DANGER

BECAUSE YOU CANNOT LOVE ME.

WHO WE REALLY ARE, WE WOULDN'T

WANT TO TAKE HOME, THE BAGGAGE,

THE PROBLEMS, THE DEPRESSION,

THE SECRETS, THE HABITS, ALL

THIS STUFF, WE TELL SOMEBODY,

TAKE ME HOME.

YOU NEED TO BUILD YOURSELF

FIRST, AND THAT'S WHY THE

FIRST THING GOD CREATED ON

EARTH WAS NOT A COUPLE, IT IS A

SINGLE, HE DIDN'T HAVE THAT

SINGLE SAY I WANT A MATE,

ADAM WAS SO PREOCCUPIED

FULFILLING HIS ASSIGNMENT, HE

DIDN'T KNOW HE NEEDED SOMEONE.

IF YOU READ THE BIBLE CAREFULLY

IN GENESIS, CHAPTER 2,

VERSE 18, IT WAS GOD WHO SAID,

IT'S NOT GOOD FOR THIS MAN TO

BE ALONE, HE NEVER ASKED GOD

FOR ANYONE, YOU ARE NEVER TRULY

FOR MARRIAGE UNTIL YOU NEVER

NEED ANYONE.

IF YOU'RE PURSUING MARRIAGE,

YOU'RE A DANGEROUS PERSON,

YOU'RE LIKE A PARASITE LOOKING

FOR A HOST.

I JUST KEEP HEARING PEOPLE

LIKE THEY'RE WATCHING YOU

SAYING, BUT, YOU KNOW, BUT HOW

DO I DO IT, HOW DO I BECOME A

WHOLE PERSON, HOW DO I HAVE

HAVE A HEART FOR THE LORD, HOW

DO I BE THE PERSON THAT GOD

WANTS ME TO BE, HOW DO I, HOW

DO I, HOW DO I.

JESUS ANSWERED THE QUESTION,

THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT IS TO

LOVE GOD, THAT NEEDS TO BE

STUDIED FOR SIX MONTHS, JUST

THAT STATEMENT, WHAT DOES IT

MEAN TO LOVE GOD, PURSUE GOD,

EXPLORE GOD, GET TO KNOW GOD,

HERE'S WHY, BECAUSE YOU AND I

ARE A PIECE OF GOD POURED OUT,

SO HE'S OUR SOURCE AND THE ONLY

WAY TO DISCOVER WHO YOU REALLY

ARE IS TO COME BACK AND STUDY

YOUR SOURCE, SO IF YOU WANT TO

KNOW WHO YOU ARE, YOU DON'T TRY

TO LEARN WHO YOU ARE BY FINDING

OTHER PEOPLE, ASKING THEM, NO

PSYCHOLOGIST CAN GIVE YOU

VALUE, NO PSYCHIATRIST CAN GIVE

YOU SANITY, YOU NEED TO GO BACK

TO THE SOURCE OF YOUR LIFE AND

DISCOVER HIS VALUE.

THIS IS WHY I LOVE THIS, YOU

KNOW, EVERY TIME I THINK OF

GOD, I THINK OF GOD LIKE A

BOTTLE OF WATER, AND I THINK OF

MAN LIKE GOD POURING A LITTLE

BIT OUT IN A BOTTLE, IN A

GLASS, AND ASKING YOU, WHAT'S

IN THE GLASS, AND THE ANSWER IS

WHATEVER'S IN THE BOTTLE,

WHATEVER THE QUALITIES ARE IN

THE BOTTLE ARE IN THE GLASS,

BUT IF YOU HAVE BEEN AWAY FROM

THE BOTTLE FOR SO LONG, DON'T

KNOW WOULD YOU ARE, THEN YOU'LL

NEVER KNOW YOUR QUALITY, YOUR

VALUE, YOUR ESTIMATION, YOUR

SELF-CONCEPT, YOUR SELF-ESTEEM,

ALL THAT IS LOST.

I DISCOVERED WHO I WAS WHEN I

DISCOVERED GOD.

YOU ARE JUST LIKE YOUR FATHER,

GOD, HERE'S MY POINT.

YOU ARE DATABLE WHEN YOU CAN

BRING CONTRIBUTION OF VALUE TO

SOMEONE ELSE.

YOU ARE DATABLE WHEN YOU'VE

DISCOVERED SO MUCH TRUTH ABOUT

YOURSELF AND SO MUCH VALUE IN

YOURSELF THAT YOU WILL BE AN

ASSET TO A PERSON RATHER THAN A

DEFICIT, THAT'S WHY IT'S

IMPORTANT TO DISCOVER YOUR

PURPOSE, YOUR POTENTIAL, TO

HAVE A VISION IN YOUR LIFE

BEFORE YOU MEET SOMEONE.

IN OTHER WORDS, WHEN YOU ARE

SEPARATE, YOU KNOW YOU ARE

IMPORTANT, WHEN YOU ARE UNIQUE,

YOU KNOW YOU HAVE QUALITY AND

WHEN YOU ARE WHOLE, YOU DON'T

NEED ANYONE TO MAKE YOU

COMPLETE, THAT'S THE KIND OF

PERSON YOU WANT TO MARRY.

I WILL TRUST YOU, WHEN YOUR

SPIRIT SPEAKS TO ME (SINGING).

SOME VERY SURROUND ADVICE BY

PASTOR MYLES MONROE, IT'S

IMPORTANT FOR US TO UNDERSTAND,

LOVE THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR

HEART, MIND, SOUL AND STRENGTH,

AND LOVE YOUR PARTNER AS YOU

LOVE YOURSELF, IF YOU CAN'T

LOVE YOU, YOU CAN'T LOVE

ANYONE ELSE AND IF YOU

CAN'T COMMIT TO THAT ONE

RELATIONSHIP, EVERY OTHER

RELATIONSHIP IS VERY DIFFICULT.

GOOD ADVICE, PASTOR BRIAN.

UP NEXT, HOW THE ALLEN'S

FAMILY FOUND TRUE LOVE AFTER 25

YEARS OF MARRIAGE.

HE WAS FUNNY, DIFFERENT,

ARTICULATE.

DROP DEAD GORGEOUS AND

INTERESTING.

A COUPLE OF YEARS AFTER

MEETING IN A BIBLE STUDY, LINDEN

AND CHERYL ALLEN WEED WITH

GREAT EXPECTATIONS, DURING THE

FIRST YEAR OF MARRIAGE, BOTH

DISCOVERED THAT MARRIAGE WAS

HARDER THAN THEY EVER

DISCOVERED.

GOODNESS, THE FIRST YEAR OF

MARRIAGE REALLY SET THE STAGE

FOR THE NEXT 12.

BOTH WERE CHILDREN OF BROKEN

HOMES, LINDEN WAS RAISED BY A

SINGLE MOTHER, SINCE HE HAD NO

FATHER AS A ROLE MODEL, HE HAD

BIG QUESTIONS ABOUT MANHOOD AND

MARRIAGE.

MY IDEA OF MARRIAGE IS GET

MARRIED BECAUSE THEN YOU'RE

MORE OF A MAN.

MY MOM WAS A STRONG WOMAN SO

FOR ME, I HAD A DIFFICULT TIME

RESPECTING MEN, I WOULD

DISRESPECT HIM VERBALLY.

DURING THE FIRST YEAR OF

MARRIAGE, HE PURSUED THE MUSIC

BUSINESS, FINANCES WERE TIGHT.

I WAS JOBLESS, YOU KNOW, NOT

FOCUSED AND WE HAD A KID, AND

OUT OF MY WIVES' MOUTH COMES

THE FOLLOWING WORDS, IF YOU

WERE A MAN, YOU WOULD HAVE A

JOB BY NOW.

AND I JUST WENT BANG

EMOTIONALLY, I PUT UP AN IRON

CURTAIN AROUND MY HEART TOWARDS

HER.

AS THE YEARS PAST, LINDEN

AND CHERYL HAD FOUR CHILDREN

BUT GREW FURTHER AND FURTHER

APART.

FIGHTS WERE PRETTY INTENSE,

WE JUST -- WE WERE LIKE OIL AND

WATER A LOT OF TIMES IN OUR

PERSONALITIES.

AFTER 13 YEARS OF MARRIAGE,

THE FAMILY MOVED TO NASHVILLE

TO PURSUE LINDEN'S MUSIC

CAREER.

HIS MARRIAGE WAS AT A BREAKING

POINT.

I JUST STOPPED EMOTIONALLY

INVESTING IN HER AND PROTECTING

MYSELF, STOPPED TALKING TO

CHERYL AND EVERYTHING SHE DID

MADE ME IRRITATED AND THIS

FAMILY WAS GETTING IN THE WAY

OF THIS MUSICAL PURSUIT, THAT

STARTED RINGING IN MY HEAD.

ME FOCUS WAS CERTAINLY GOD

WANTS ME HAPPY AND I'M NOT

HAPPY IN THIS MARRIAGE, SO THE

ANSWER TO ME WAS ANOTHER

RELATIONSHIP.

CHERYL STARTED HAVING AN

EMOTIONAL AFFAIR WITH A MAN SHE

MET THROUGH HER KIDS' AFTER

SCHOOL ACTIVITIES.

I WAS WILLING TO PAY THE

COST TO DO WHATEVER IT TOOK IF

THAT MEANT LOSING MY KIDS, IT

WAS THAT HUNGER, THAT FANTASY

WAS SO STRONG IN ME THAT I WAS

WILLING TO LOSE IT ALL.

ONE EVENING WHILE LINDEN

WAS TRAVELING, CHERYL INVITED

THE MAN OVER TO THEIR HOME AND

THE TWO KISSED.

SO I CAME HOME FROM THAT

KIND OF FEELING SOMETHING'S

GOING ON BUT COULDN'T PUT MY

FINGER ON IT, IT ALL CAME TO A

HEAD WHEN I SPOKE TO HER BEST

FRIEND AND SHE TOLD ME.

HE CON FRONTED ME, DENIED IT

AND I SAID THERE'S NO ONE ELSE,

HE SAID, I KNOW THERE IS, JUST

BE HONEST WITH ME, SO I SAID,

OKAY, YES, THERE IS SOMEONE

ELSE, THAT'S WHAT I WANT, AND I

THINK AT THAT MOMENT, I

REALIZED IT'S REALLY NOT WHAT I

WANT, WHAT I REALLY WANT IS A

GOOD MARRIAGE WITH LINDEN,

THE FATHER OF MY KIDS.

LINDEN REACTED CALMLY BUT

TWO DAYS LATER, HIS TRUE

EMOTIONS ROSE TO THE SURFACE.

HE SAID, WHAT ARE YOU

THINKING ABOUT?

I'M THINKING ABOUT HIM.

AS SOON AS SHE SAID THAT, ALL

BETS WERE OFF INSIDE OF ME.

HE LEFT THE ROOM TO AVOID

CONFRONTATION.

I WAS WASHING MY FACE, HE

CAME INTO THE BATHROOM, MOVED

ME OUT OF THE WAY AND HELD MY

ARM, AND HE SAID, WE NEED TO

TALK, AND I WAS JUST LIKE, OH,

NO, IT'S OVER.

WHEN SHE SAID THOSE WORDS,

IN SLOW MOTION IN MY BRAIN, I'M

GETTING A DIVORCE, IT'S GOING

AWAY, SHE SAYS IT'S DONE AND I

PANICKED AND I SAID, NO, YOU'RE

NOT.

HE PICKED ME UP AND THROUGH

ME ACROSS THE BATHROOM, I HIT

MY HEAD ON THE WALL AND I'M ON

MY HANDS AND KNEES GOING, MY

GOSH, HE'S GOING TO KILL ME.

CHERYL TRIED CALLING 911

TWICE BUT BOTH TIMES LINDEN

HUNG UP THE PHONE IN A RAGE.

AS A LAST RESORT, SHE CALLED

OUT FOR HER ELDEST SON.

I SAID, LAYTEN, LAYTEN,

I WAS SCREAMING, AND HE CAME,

AND HE SAW HIS MOM JUST WITH

THIS BIG KNOT IN HER HEAD, I

SAID, DADDY PUSHED ME UP

AGAINST THE WALL AND HIS WALL

CAME CRUMBLING DONE.

IT WAS THAT MOMENT WHEN I

REALIZED I GOT TO TURN THIS

TRAIN AROUND.

THE POLICE ARRIVED AND SAW

CHERYL'S INJURIES, THEY

ARRESTED LINDEN.

I WAS IN AN ISOLATION TANK

ON MY OWN, I CAN FINALLY HEAR

THE HOLY SPIRIT SAY TO ME, ARE

YOU READY TO DO IT MY WAY NOW,

AND I SAID, YES, LORD, HELP.

AFTER 12 HOURS IN JAIL,

LINDEN WAS RELEASED.

FOR A MONTH, LINDEN FASTED

AND PRAYED THAT GOD WOULD HEAL

HIM AND RESTORE HIS MARRIAGE.

WHAT MOTIVATED ME WAS TO

HONOR GOD, TO HONOR GOD AND

HONOR MARRIAGE.

AROUND THE SAME TIME, CHERYL

STARTED READING BIBLE PASSAGES

ON MARRIAGE AND RESPECT.

HE STARTED ASKING FOR

FORGIVENESS FOR CERTAIN THING,

KIND OF OPENED MY EYES AND GOT

MY HOPE METER GOING AGAIN.

SO, HERE WE ARE NOW TRYING

TO MAKE A NEW DIRECTION DRAWING

THAT LINE IN THE SAND AND

FORGIVENESS AND ALL OF GOD'S

WORD HAD EVERYTHING TO DO WITH

IT.

THEY BOTH RECOMMITTED THEIR

LIVES TO GOD AND JUST ONE MONTH

AFTER LINDEN'S TRIP TO JAIL,

THE TWO TOOK A COUPLE'S CRUISE

TO THE BAHAMAS.

THIS LADY CAME UP TO US AND

WE WERE JUST HAVING FUN, YOU

KNOW, AND SHE CAME UP TO US AND

SAID, HOW LONG HAVE YOU GUYS

BEEN MARRIED, YOU GUYS LOOK

LIKE YOU'RE HONEYMOONERS,

THAT WAS THE POWER OF

GOD.

TODAY THEY'RE CELEBRATING 25

YEARS IN MARRIAGE, THEY'RE IN

FULL TIME MINISTRY AND COUNSEL

YOUNG COUPLES AND THIS YEAR,

THEIR ELDEST SON LAYTEN

MARRIED.

PULLING THIS BACK TOGETHER

CREATED A FOUNDATION FOR OUR

SON TO LAUNCH INTO HIS

MARRIAGE, WHAT GREATER THING

CAN WE GIVE HIM THAN HIS

PARENTS BEING IN TACT, IN LOVE,

IN MARRIAGE.

WHEN WE JUST BELIEVED GOD AT

HIS WORD, THAT'S WHEN WE SAW

THE EXPONENTIAL CHANGE IN OUR

RELATIONSHIP, THAT'S WHEN WE

LEARNED HOW TO BE A WIFE, HOW

TO BE A HUSBAND, WHEN WE LOOKED

AT WHAT THE WORD SAID AND

FOLLOWED WHAT IT SAID.

HE IS THE ANSWER.

WHAT AN AMAZING STORY, YOU

KNOW, THIS GIVES US HOPE EVERY

SINGLE ONE OF US, IF LINDEN

AND CHERYL CAN SURVIVE A

MARITAL INFIDELITY AND THEY CAN

SURVIVE HIS THROWING HER INTO A

WALL AND COME TOGETHER AND FIND

FORGIVENESS WITH EACH OTHER,

THERE IS HOPE FOR MOST OF US,

MOST MARRIAGES DON'T GO THROUGH

THAT TURMOIL, IF YOU'RE IN A

SITUATION WHERE YOU ARE FACING

SOMETHING THAT THERE IS A

TREMENDOUS INSULT THAT HAS BEEN

LEVELED AGAINST YOUR MARRIAGE,

PERHAPS BY YOUR SPOUSE, I WANT

YOU TO KNOW SOMETHING, THIS

STORY SHOULD GIVE YOU HOPE AND

NOT ON THAT, THE WORD OF GOD

GIVES US HOPE, THE WORD OF GOD

SAYS IF WE WOULD FORGIVE AS

CHRIST FORGAVE US, WHEN JESUS

WENT TO THE CHRIST, HE NOT ONLY

DIED FOR PEOPLE LIKE LINDEN

AND CHERYL, HE DIED FOR YOU AND

FOR ME AND FOR EVERYTHING THAT

YOUR SPOUSE HAS DONE AGAINST

YOU, CAN YOU THINK OF THE WORST

POSSIBLE THING YOU'VE EVER DONE

FOR YOUR LIVE, JESUS WENT TO

THE CROSS KNOWING THAT AND

PAYING A PRICE SO YOU COULD BE

100% FORGIVEN, BECAUSE OF THAT

PRICE BEING MADE FOR YOU AND

ME, GOD ASKS US FOR US TO

FORGIVE, THERE'S A GREAT VERSE,

LUKE 17 VERSE 3, IF YOUR

BROTHER SINS, HE MISSES THE

MARK, SOLEMNLY TELL HIM SO AND

REPRIEVE HIM, THAT LEAVES ROOM

THAT YOU CAN TELL YOUR SPOUSE

WHAT'S BOTHERED YOU, HOW YOU'VE

BE OFFENDED AND IF SHE OR HE

REPENTS, FORGIVE THEM, THAT'S

WHAT WE'RE REQUIRED TO DO.

FORGIVENESS IS A DIFFICULT

THING TO DO BECAUSE IT'S

SUPERNATURAL, YOU NEED GOD'S

HELP TO DO THAT.

WE AT THE 700 CLUB CANADA, WE

HAVE SOME RESOURCES WE'D LIKE

TO GET INTO YOUR HANDS, I

BELIEVE THIS IS A NEW DAY FOR

SOMEONE THAT'S WATCHING,

WHETHER YOUR HUSBAND OR YOUR

WIFE ARE WITH YOU RIGHT NOW OR

BY YOURSELF, AS A PASTOR, I ASK

PEOPLE, ARE YOU WILLING TO DO

IT GOD'S WAY, IF YOU'RE WILLING

TO DO IT GOD'S WAY, THERE

YOU'RE GOING TO START.

HEY, I WONDER IF IT'S TIME FOR

YOU TO DO SOME BUSINESS WITH

GOD RIGHT NOW, IT'S NOT MY

HUSBAND OR MY WIFE, BUT IT'S ME

OH LORD STANDING IN THE WAY OF

PRAY, GOD CAN BRING YOUR LIFE

ON TRACK, LET'S DO SOME

BUSINESS WITH GOD.

GOD, I CONFESS, IT'S NOT MY

HUSBAND, IT'S NOT MY WIFE BUT

IT'S ME, I AM A SINNER, AND

GOD, I'M TIRED, I CAN'T DO IT

ANYMORE, I CAN'T LIVE LIKE THIS

ANYMORE, GOD, I SURRENDER,

JESUS, WOULD YOU COME INTO MY

LIFE, WOULD YOU MAKE ME WHAT

YOU WANT ME TO BE, LORD, START

WITH ME AND PLEASE WORK ON MY

MARRIAGE, THIS DAY, I GIVE YOU

ME AND I THANK YOU FOR BEING MY

LORD AND SAVIOR IN JESUS NAME,

AMEN.

AMEN, AND IF YOU PRAYED THAT

PRAYER JUST NOW WITH BRIAN,

WOULD YOU PLEASE CALL US AT

1-855-759-0700.

IT'S A NEW DAY.

WELCOME TO THIS HOPE TO

GO, WE'RE TALKING THIS WEEK

ABOUT GODLY COMEBACKS, BEFORE

WE GO THERE, I WANT YOU TO

UNDERSTAND THAT EVERYBODY FACES

SETBACKS IN LIFE, BUT IT

DOESN'T HAVE TO KEEP YOU THERE,

YOU CAN MOVE BEYOND THAT.

YOU KNOW, WE'RE GOING TO BE

LOOKING AT A LIFE OF SIMON

PETER, THE FISHERMAN, BEFORE I

GO TO THAT, I WANT TO REMIND

YOU OF SOMETHING THAT HAPPENED

IN 1929, IT WAS AT THE ROSE

BOWL AND THERE WAS A GUY NAMED

ROY REGAL, HE WAS PLAYING

AT THE ROSE BOWL, ALL OF A

SUDDEN HE GOT A LITTLE BIT

CONFUSED, HE WAS THE CENTER AND

THE BALL LANDED ON THE GROUND,

HE'S THE GUY THAT HIKES THE

BALL TO THE QUARTER BACK, HE

STARTED TO RUN WITH THE BALL

BUT STARTED RUNNING IN THE

WRONG DIRECTION AND THE QUARTER

BACK JUST CAUGHT HIM ONE YARD

BEFORE HE SCORED A TOUCHDOWN ON

HIS OWN TEAM, HE WAS SO

DISTRAUGHT THAT HIS COACH WAS

PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST

PROLIFIC COACHES AT THE TIME,

HE HAD A DECISION TO MAKE ON

HIS HANDS BECAUSE ROY DIDN'T

WANT TO COME OUT ON THE SECOND

HALF, WHAT ENDED UP HAPPENING,

THE COACH DID SOMETHING

EXTRAORDINARY, HE SAID SAME

TEAM THAT ENDED THE FIRST HALF

IS BACK ON IN THE SECOND HALF,

YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN A GUY PLAY

SO HARD, EVEN REPORTERS SAID

THAT HE JUST BLEW EVERYONE AWAY

BECAUSE NOW HE HAD A SECOND

CHANCE.

YOU KNOW, THE FIRST STEP IN A

GODLY COMEBACK IS RELATIONSHIP

WITH GOD, ONE OF THE MOST

IMPORTANT NIGHTS OF HIS LIFE,

PETER THE ROCK SAT A I --

ALONE IN THE DARK JUST WEEPING,

HE WAS A STRONG SELF-RELIANT

FISHERMAN, HE WAS SO BOLD, HE

WAS COURAGEOUS AND NOW HE WAS

COMPLETELY UNDONE, THE ROCK HAD

BEEN SHATTERED, EVERY GREAT MAN

OR WOMAN OF GOD CAN POINT TO A

TIME OF BREAKING IN THEIR LIFE

WITH A TIME OF DECISION

TRANSFORMED THEM FROM AN

ORDINARY PIECE OF COAL TO A

PLIABLE ONE, THE DISCIPLES,

PETER IS ONE OF THOSE

INDIVIDUALS WHO WAS BROKEN, THE

BIBLE SAYS THIS, THAT IN LUKE,

CHAPTER 22 AND 55, WHEN THEY

HAD KINDLED A FIRE AND THEY SAT

DOWN TOGETHER, PETER SAT DOWN AD

A WOMAN LOOKED CLOSELY AT HIM AD

SHE SAID, THIS IS THE MAN AND

HE IS ONE OF THEM BUT HE

DENIED, THE WOMAN WHEN SHE

CALLED HIM OUT, I DON'T KNOW

WHO HE IS, WHEN YOU LOOK AT

SIMON PETER IN THIS MOMENT, YOU

RECOGNIZE HE LET GO OF ONE OF

THE GREATEST RELATIONSHIPS THAT

HE HAD BUT WE WERE DESIGNED FOR

RELATIONSHIPS, GOD MADE US TO

BE MEN AND WOMEN OF

RELATIONSHIP, LIKE ROY REGAL,

IT'S THE FIRST HALF, YOU

HAVE THE SECOND HALF COMING,

DON'T GIVE UP, GET BACK IN THE

GAME AND THAT'S YOUR HOPE TO GO.

SUCH AN INCREDIBLE MESSAGE,

YOU KNOW, LETTING GO OF OUR

PAST AND LETTING GO OF OUR

FAILURES AND MOVING ON TO WHAT

IS AHEAD IS ONE OF THE MOST

SIGNIFICANT THINGS YOU CAN DO.

PAUL THE APOSTLE SAID THIS IN

PHILIPPIANS THREE VERSUS 3, IF

IT'S ONE THING I DO, IT IS MY

ONE ASPIRATION, FORGETTING WHAT

FALLS BEHIND AND STRAINING

FORWARD TO WHAT LIES AHEAD, IT

IS A STRAIN, IT IS A STRAIN TO

PUT BEHIND YOU ALL OF THOSE

MISTAKES AND THE FAILURES,

BUT WHEN YOU RECEIVE WHAT

CHRIST HAS DONE, IT WILL

ABSOLUTELY SET YOU FREE.

WELL, COMING UP NEXT, WHAT YOU

BELIEVE, CANADA, JEN AND KATIE

AND I DISCUSSED DATING AND

DIVORCE.

JEN AND KATIE, I'M EXCITED

TO FIND OUT THAT YOU ARE WOMEN

OF FAITH AND YOU ARE ALSO REAL

WOMEN, YOU'RE REAL CANADIAN

WOMEN, YOU'VE GONE THROUGH

THINGS THAT HAVE REALLY

STRETCHED YOUR FAITH AND IT

STRETCHED YOUR EMOTIONS AND WE

ALL GO THROUGH STUFF LIKE THAT.

WHAT IS SOMETHING, JEN, MAYBE

YOU CAN START, THAT YOU'VE BEEN

THROUGH AND YOU HAVE SEEN HOW

GOD HAS HELPED YOU?

WELL, I WENT THROUGH A

DIVORCE ABOUT A YEAR AGO, AND I

GUESS THE BIGGER THING THAT GOD

HAS HELPED ME WITH HAS BEEN

THAT REALIZATION THAT WHEN ALL

FADES AWAY, HE IS THAT ROCK AND

HE IS MY STRONG FOUNDATION.

YOU KNOW, I FOUND THAT SAME

THING, THAT THOUGH MAN REJECTS

US, GOD NEVER LEAVES OUR SIDE,

WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN THROUGH?

I'VE BEEN ALONE FOR -- I'M

27.

WHEN I WAS 19, I REMEMBER

GIVING MY SINGLENESS TO THE

LORD AND SAYING, YOU KNOW WHAT,

I DON'T KNOW, I PUT THIS IN

YOUR HANDS, AND IN THE

MEANTIME, I'VE BEEN IN

DIFFERENT RELATIONSHIPS AND

IT'S NEVER FIT AND I'VE ALSO

LOST A NUMBER OF FRIENDS OVER

THE COURSE OF THAT TIME AND

KIND OF REALIZING THAT NO

MATTER WHAT, HE KIND OF LAID

ON MY HEART THAT HE WILL BE

THERE FOR ME AND HE WILL NEVER

LEAVE ME OR FORSAKE ME AND HE

IS AGAIN, LIKE JENNY SAID, MY

ROCK, AND HE'LL NEVER ACTUALLY

LEAVE ME ALONE.

LET'S HAVE CANADA PRAY THAT

YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE ALONE

FOR VERY LONG.

WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR, LADY?

I GUY THAT LOVES JESUS.

A GUY THAT LOVES JESUS.
