BUSIEST SEASONS IN MY LIFE, I

AM FINISHING MY BOOK, THE

PUBLISHERS ARE WAITING ON ME.

CAN YOU GIVE US A SNEAK

PREVIEW?

IT'S EVERYTHING I TALK

ABOUT, IT'S THE BROKENNESS, THE

AGONY OF DEFEAT, IT'S THE GLORY

OF GOD RAISING YOU OUT OF THE

MUCK, IT'S GOING TO BE A GOOD

STORY I THINK BUT IT HAS TAKEN

EVERYTHING I'VE GOT TO GET IT

OUT, SO IT'S BEEN BUSY.

PRAY FOR LAURA LYNN, WE'RE

PRAYING FOR HER AS WELL, TODAY

YOU'LL MEET THE MAN BEHIND

MONAVIE, THE MULTIMILLION

DOLLAR SELLING HEALTH BEVERAGE

COMPANY, BRIGG HART SHARES HIS

INCREDIBLE JOURNEY TO SUCCESS

AND INCLUDES OVERCOMING ABUSE

AND ADDICTION.

HIS RAGS TO RICHES STORY

PROVES THAT GOD HAS

THE WILDEST OF DREAMS FOR OUR

LIVES EVEN IF WE ARE FEELING

UNQUALIFIED.

AND YOU'LL ALSO SEE THAT GOD

IS STILL IN THE MIRACLE

BUSINESS, NORA AWAR WAS IN

EXCRUCIATING PAIN FROM AN

AILMENT IN HER JAW UNTIL A

PRAYER ON TELEVISION BROUGHT

HER THE RELEASE SHE NEEDED.

AND I HAVE AN INCREDIBLE

INTERVIEW WITH A MAN WHO BARELY

SURVIVED THE VANCOUVER RIOTS AS

PART OF MY ONGOING SERIES ON

WHAT YOU BELIEVE, CANADA.

BUT FIRST, THE INCREDIBLE

HEALING OF NORA AWAR.

I WOKE ONE MORNING AND

SUDDENLY I HAD THIS

EXCRUCIATING PAIN ON MY LEFT

SIDE, MY JAW, I COULD NOT OPEN

MY MOUTH WIDE BECAUSE OF THE

PAIN.

I COULD NOT SLEEP, I COULD NOT

EAT WELL.

IT CAUSED MY HEAD TO ACHE ON

ONE SIDE AND I WASN'T ABLE TO

DO THINGS LIKE BRUSH MY TEETH,

SO I DECIDED TO GO TO THE

DOCTOR AND HE EXAMINED ME AND

PRESCRIBED PAIN MEDS, SO I TOOK

THEM FOR LIKE THREE MONTHS, BUT

NOTHING WORKED.

I THOUGHT, I NEED TO TURN TO

GOD RIGHT NOW BECAUSE THE

DOCTORS ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING

AND THE MEDICATION IS NOT DOING

ME ANY GOOD.

I USUALLY WATCH 700 CLUB, TERRY

WAS PRAYING AND IT WAS LIKE SHE

WAS SPEAKING TO ME.

IT'S NOT LIKE TMJ, BUT THE

PAIN IS SHOOTING, IT GOES RIGHT

UP INTO YOUR HEAD, GOD IS

HEALING THAT JAW CONDITION FOR

YOU RIGHT NOW, JUST RECEIVE

THAT.

THE NEXT MORNING WHEN I WOKE

UP, THE PAIN WAS GONE, I WAS

FILLED WITH JOY AND I WAS JUST

THANKING GOD.

I'M NOT IN PAIN AND I CAN OPEN

MY MOUTH, I CAN SPEAK OUT LOUD,

IT WAS A MIRACLE, IT WAS

AMAZING.

I'M HEALED, YOU KNOW, IN JESUS

NAME, I'M HEALED, I WAS

EXCITED, YEAH, AND I HAVE NOT

EXPERIENCED ANY PAIN EVER SINCE.

IF YOU BELIEVE AND PRAY WITH

THEM, MIRACLES DO HAPPEN AND IT

IS REAL, IT'S HAPPENED TO ME

AND IT IS REAL.

I KNOW I RECENTLY HEARD FROM

A WOMAN NAMED IMAGER ON

FACEBOOK AND SHE WROTE AND SHE

SAID SHE IS GOING FOR A FINAL

MRI BECAUSE HER DOCTOR SAID SHE

HAS PARKINSON'S, THOSE KIND OF

DIAGNOSIS, THEY SEEM SO

DEFINITE AND SO SURE AND SO

FINAL, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, GOD

IS A MIRACLE WORKING GOD.

THERE WAS A WOMAN IN MATTHEW 9

AND SHE HAD AN ISSUE OF BLOOD,

SHE HAD IT FOR SO MANY YEARS

SHE COULDN'T COUNT, SHE NEEDED

HER MIRACLE AND SHE SAW JESUS

AT A CROWD AT A FAR DISTANCE

AND THIS IS ALL SHE HAD LEFT,

AS SHE GOT NEARBY, HE GOT DOWN

ON HER HANDS AND KNEES AND

WEAVED THROUGH THE LEGS TO GET

HERE TO JESUS TO TOUCH THE HEM

OF HIS GARMENT SO SHE COULD

RESERVE THAT MIRACULOUS POWER,

GOD SEES, YOU, HE KNOWS YOUR

CIRCUMSTANCE, THERE IS NOTHING

THAT IS TOO BIG FOR HIM.

WE DO STORY AFTER STORY ABOUT

GOD TOUCHING PEOPLES' LIVES

ON THIS SHOW.

WE'VE EVEN HAD GREAT STORIES,

DOCUMENTED STORIES OF PEOPLE

COMING BACK TO LIFE.

THERE IS A MIRACLE WORKING GOD

AND HE HAS EVERYTHING THAT YOU

NEED TODAY.

LET ME READ YOU MATTHEW 11

VERSE 5, THE BLIND RECEIVE

THEIR SIGHT AND THE DEAF HEAR,

THE DEAD ARE RAISED UP AND THE

POOR HAVE GOOD NEWS, THE GOSPEL

PREACHED TO THEM, IT IS THE

GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST, IT IS

POWERFUL, IT IS WHY WE DO WHAT

WE DO HERE EVERY DAY, THAT'S

WHY WE HAVE A PRAYER LINE,

WE'RE NOT MESSING WITH YOU, WE

KNOW GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS, HE

CAN INFUSE HIS POWER INTO YOUR

SITUATION.

WE TRUST THAT GOD IS A FAITHFUL

GOD AND WE BELIEVE WITH YOU

TODAY.

AMEN, LAURA LYNN, YOU KNOW,

WE'VE GOT SO MANY PRAYER

REQUESTS THAT ARE COMING, WE'VE

GOT LOUISE AND SHE'S IN

ONTARIO, AS WELL AS WE'VE GOT

Z. AMEN, IF YOU JUST PRAYED

THAT PRAYER WITH BRIAN, GIVE US

A CALL, LET OUR FAITH JOIN WITH

YOURS, 1-855-759-0700.

IT'S HAPPENING.

DADDY?

YEAH, BUDDY?

HOW MANY NICKELS ARE IN A

DOLLAR?

THERE ARE 20 NICKELS IN A

DOLLAR.

LOOK, HOW DO BIRDS FLY?

DOES MILK REALLY MAKE MY BONES

STRONGER?

YEAH, YEAH.

DADDY, WITH WE DIE, WILL WE

GO TO HEAVEN?

DO YOU HAVE THE ANSWER TO

LIFE'S BIGGEST QUESTION?

CALL THE 700 CLUB, WE'LL HELP

YOU GET ANSWERS TO THE

IMPORTANT QUESTIONS LIFE BRINGS

YOUR WAY.

DO YOU KNOW THAT GOD WANTS

YOUR LIFE TO GET BETTER AND

BETTER?

THE LONGER YOU LIVE, HE WANTS

YOU TO BE MORE FULFILL AND HAD

TO HAVE A DEEP SENSE OF

CONTENTMENT AND THE ONLY PEACE

THAT COMES FROM A TRUE AND

POWERFUL RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.

WHEN WE GO THROUGH SOME ROUGH

STORMS IN OUR LIVES, WE CAN

BEGIN TO FEAR OR EXPECT THAT

BAD THINGS ARE GOING TO START

HAPPENING, THE WORD HAS A NAME

FOR THOSE, IT CALLS IT EVIL

FOREBODING, WORRIES OVER THINGS

THAT WILL ACTUALLY NEVER

HAPPEN, THE ENEMY SOMETIMES

WILL PLANT THESE SEEDS OF

DESPAIR INTO OUR HEARTS TO

CAUSE FEAR TO TAKE OVER OUR

MINDS BUT EACH YEAR, GOD WANTS

TO BRING YOU A DEEPER, RICHER,

MORE GRATIFYING JOY THAT IS NOT

DEPENDENT ON YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES

BUT RATHER ON YOUR TRUST IN

JESUS TO GET YOU THROUGH EACH

AND EVERY DIFFICULTY THAT MAY

COME YOUR WAY, AS YOU STAY

CLOSE TO GOD, HE WILL BRING

TRUE ENJOYMENT IN THIS

EXPERIENCE THAT WE ALL CALL

LIFE.

HE INTENDED FOR YOU TO BE

SECURE AND CONFIDENT, THAT YOU

WERE DESIGNED FOR A GREAT

PURPOSE AND THAT AS YOUR WALK

WITH HIM GROWS CLOSER AND

CLOSER, HIS GLORY CAN BE POURED

INTO YOUR LIFE IN MORE GREATER,

MORE POWERFUL WAYS, NOBODY

WANTS TO FEEL DEFEATED AND

DESPONDENT ABOUT THEIR

CIRCUMSTANCES AND NO ONE HAS

TO, NOT WITH GOD'S HELP, IT'S

NOT THAT HARD TIMES DON'T COME

TO ALL OF US AT SOME POINT, BUT

IT'S HOW WE MANAGE THOSE

STAGES, GOD INTENDED YOU TO BE

MATURE AND BE A VESSEL OF HONOR

FOR GREAT USE IN THE KINGDOM,

HE DESIGNED YOU TO FULFILL A

SPECIFIC CALL AND HE WANTS TO

MAKE YOU GREAT IN THE POSITION

OF INFLUENCE THAT HE'S GIVEN

YOU, THE GLORY OF THIS LATTER

TEMPLE SHALL BE GREATER THAN

THE FORMER SAYS THE LORD OF

HOSTS AND IN THIS PLACE, I WILL

GIVE PEACE.

WE ARE THE TEMPLE OF GOD, HE

LIVES AND INHABITS OUR BEING

AND HIS INTENTION IS THAT OUR

LATTER DAYS AND THE MAGNIFICENT

STRUCTURE HE HAS FORMED THROUGH

THE FIRE OF MUCH ADVERSITY WILL

BEAR THE FULL AND POWERFUL

GLORY OF GOD, HE WANTS YOU TO

OUT SHINE YOUR DAY, BE MORE

FULL OF FAITH, BE MORE

POWERFUL, WALK WITH MORE

AUTHORITY THAN YOU EVER HAVE,

AND FURTHERMORE, IT PROMISES

MORE PEACE IN THAT PLACE, SO

HOW DO WE GET THAT KIND OF A

PROMISE?

PSALMS 3:3 SAYS BUT YOU OH

LORD ARE A SHIELD FOR ME, MY

GLORY AND THE ONE WHO LIFTS MY

HEAD, I CRY TO THE LORD WITH MY

VOICE AND HE HEARD ME FROM HIS

HOLY HILL, I LAID DOWN AND

SLEPT, I AWOKE FOR THE LORD

SUSTAINED ME.

YOU SEE, WHEN YOU ALIGN YOUR

LIFE WITH GOD, HE WILL BECOME

YOUR STRENGTH, YOUR SHIELD, AND

THE ONE WHO KEEPS BRINGING

FAVOR UPON FAVOR INTO YOUR LIFE.

HIS FAVOR NEVER ENDS.

HE WANTS THE DAYS TO COME TO

SHINE WITH SUCH POWER AND GLORY

THAT ALL THOSE WHO KNOW YOU

WILL WANT WHAT YOU'VE GOT.

AMEN, AND YOU KNOW, THAT

PSALMS 3:3 IS ONE OF MY

FAVORITE VERSES, I BELIEVE THAT

GOD IS ASKING YOU THE MOVE INTO

THAT PLACE TODAY.

WHY DON'T YOU SAY YES TO HIM,

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN RUNNING

AND WAITING TO FIND OUT WHAT

LIFE IS ALL ABOUT?

I BELIEVE IT STARTS TODAY, THE

NUMBER ON THE SCREEN,

1-855-759-0700, OPERATORS ARE

STANDING BY, TODAY'S YOUR BEST

DAY.

LAURA LYNN FINDS OUT FIRST-HAND

WHAT HAPPENED IN THE VANCOUVER

RIOTS.

SO, I AM ABSOLUTELY

STAGGERED TO BE OUT HERE

LOOKING AT THIS INCREDIBLE VIEW

OF VANCOUVER AND TO FIND YOU

AND JUST A RANDOM MEETING, TELL

ME WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU?

WELL, IT'S PRETTY MUCH ALL

STARTS OFF WITH COMING DOWN TO

VANCOUVER FOR MY FIRST TIME

EVER AND GOING TO WATCH THE

GAME 7, WATCH THE VANCOUVER CAN

NUKES BRING THE STANLEY CUP

HOME, I WAS TRYING TO GET BACK

TO MY BROTHERS AND THE WHOLE

CROWD IS TRYING TO LEAVE,

THEY'RE TRYING TO PUSH EVERYONE

BACK TO EVERYONE THAT'S TRYING

TO LEAVE SO THEY CONGESTED

EVERYONE, I WENT TO GO SNEAK

AROUND THE BUDGET STORE, MET

ONE GUY WITH HIS ARMS CROSSED,

FULL FACE PAINT AND THE FAN

COLORS AND EVERYTHING LIKE THAT

AND I JUST DECIDED, I DON'T

KNOW WHAT CAME OVER ME BUT JUST

DECIDED AT LEAST GIVE HIM A

HAND AND WE'RE ALL JUST

YELLING, THIS IS A DISGRACE TO

YOUR OWN CITY, AND LONG STORY

SHORT, HE EVENTUALLY WENT TO GO

CONFRONT ONE GUY TOO FAR OUT IN

THE CROWD, I SEEN THAT, WENT TO

GO OVER TO HIM, PULLED HIS BACK

UP AGAINST THE WALL SO HE IS

SEE WHAT WAS COMING AT HIM AND

THAT'S WHEN THE CROWD TURNED ON

HIM.

THEY JUST WENT -- STARTED

ATTACKING HIM AND THE NEXT

THING I KNEW, THEY WERE GOING

COME FOR ME AND I LOOKED OVER,

SAW MINE COMING AND THERE'S

NOTHING YOU COULD DO WITH A

CROWD THAT SIZE, COPS ARE

SITTING AND WATCHING AND DOING

NOTHING AND THE FIRST SHOT

KNOCKED ME OUT, ANOTHER GUY

RUNS IN AS I'M ALREADY

UNCONSCIOUS UP AGAINST THE

BUILDING AND STRAIGHT SOCCER

STYLE KICKS THE SIDE OF MY

HEAD, KNOCKS ME ON THE GROUND

AND THE FIRST GUY WHO CAME AND

HIT ME, DECIDED TO POP MY LUNG,

COLLAPSED MY LUNG, GAVE ME

QUITE A DAZE, YOU KNOW, IT'S

STILL HARD TO THINK CLEARLY AND

EVERYTHING, AND THEN THE ONLY

THING I REALLY REMEMBER IS

WAKING UP A COUPLE OF BLOCKS

BECAUSE A COUPLE OF THE GOOD

SAMARITANS DRAGGED ME A COUPLE

OF BLOCKS DOWN THE ROAD AND

THERE'S NO AMBULANCES, NOTHING

IN SIGHT SO THEY GOT A

BYSTANDER TO STOP ON THE SIDE

OF THE ROAD, THROW ME IN THE

BACK OF A TRUCK AND I REMEMBER

WAKING UP IN THE HOSPITAL WITH

THIS TUBE COMING OUT OF MY LUNG.

SO, IT COULD HAVE BEEN A LOT

WORSE?

YEAH, ONE MORE KICK, ONE

MORE PUNCH AND THAT WOULD HAVE

BEEN IT, THE AMBULANCES

COULDN'T COME, NO ONE COULD

RESPOND.

WHY DO YOU THINK YOUR LIFE

WAS SPARED?

THERE'S ALWAYS A PLAN FOR

EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING GOOD AND

BAD AND LIFE'S MEANT FOR A

REASON.

I BELIEVE THAT, I BELIEVE

YOU'RE MEANT TO STILL BE HERE.

IT COULD HAVE BEEN DONE, THANK

YOU FOR BEING A GOOD PERSON,

THANK YOU FOR BEING A GOOD

CANADIAN AND THANK YOU FOR

INSPIRING ALL OF US TODAY.

NOT A PROBLEM.

WHAT THAT STORY TELLS ME IS

THAT YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT CAN

HAPPEN IN LIFE.

YOU THINK THAT YOU'RE JUST AT A

HOCKEY GAME HAVING SOME FUN

WITH SOME FRIENDS, ALL OF A

SUDDEN A RIOT BREAKS OUT AND

YOUR LIFE IS IN DANGER.

BRIAN AND I ARE HERE EVERY DAY

BECAUSE WE WANT YOU TO KNOW,

WHAT, KNOW WHO JESUS IS IN YOUR

WELCOME BACK, UP NEXT, A

DOWN AND OUT SURFER TAKES THE

BIGGEST RIDE OF HIS LIFE.

THIS IS THE STORY OF GREG HEART.

BRIGG HART HAS FOUND THE

KIND OF SUCCESS MANY PEOPLE

ONLY DREAM ABOUT, LONG BEFORE

HE LED A MULTIBILLION DOLLAR

BUSINESS, BRIGG WAS A KID WITH

A SIMPLE DREAM.

MY DREAM WAS TO HAVE MY

DAD'S ATTENTION, WAS AT THE

ROOT OF EVERYTHING THAT WAS

DRAWN AND I WANTED TO HEAR MY

DAD SAY HE WAS PROUD OF ME.

THOSE WORDS NEVER CAME, WHAT

LITTLE ATTENTION HE RECEIVED

FROM HIS FATHER WAS VIOLENT AND

ABUSIVE.

MY DAD WAS A HARD, HEAVY

DRINKER, YOU COULDN'T PLEASE

HIM, SO THAT CAME WITH PHYSICAL

ABUSE, MENTAL ABUSE, STATEMENTS

THAT CAUSED PROBABLY A LOT OF

EMOTIONAL DAMAGE EARLY ON

BECAUSE WE JUST DIDN'T FEEL

WORTHY.

A SLAP IN THE MIDDLE OF A

CONVERSATION WAS A NORMAL

THING, BUT NOT JUST A SLAP, A

BACK HANDED OFF YOUR FEET INTO

THE GROUND.

BRIGG ESCAPED FROM THE PAIN

ON MARYLAND'S EASTERN SHORE.

SURFING WAS VERY IMPORTANT,

I WAS MENTALLY IN THE WAVES.

AT HOME, BRIGG'S FAMILY WAS

DROWNING IN FEAR.

AT ABOUT 13, I HAD HAD

ENOUGH OF THE ABUSE TO SOME

DEGREE, I WAS MORE SCARED FOR

MY MOM, MYSELF, I JUST COULDN'T

DEAL WITH IT EMOTIONALLY, I WAS

A WRECK, THERE WAS A DAY I TOLD

MY MOM, I SAID, I'M GOING TO

LEAVE, I'M GOING TO RUN AWAY

AND SHE HELPED ME TO PACK AND

IT WAS HARD FOR BOTH OF US BUT

SHE FELT IT WAS PROBABLY BETTER

FOR ME NOT TO BE IN THAT

ENVIRONMENT.

BRIGG LIVED WITH FOUR

DIFFERENT FAMILIES OVER A SIX

YEAR PERIOD, HE COULDN'T YOU

OUT RUN THE ANGER THAT CONSUMED

HIM.

THE ANGER WAS FOCUSED AT MY

DAD, I WOULD DRINK, I WOULD DO

DRUGS, I WAS ON PROBATION FOR A

WHILE BECAUSE I HAD TAKEN

SOMETHING, I GOT INTO BREAKING

AND ENTERING, AND JUST FILLING

A VOID I BELIEVE THAT WAS PAIN

THAT I WAS TRYING TO -- I

WANTED IT TO GO AWAY, IT NEVER

DID.

HE GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL AND

SOBERED UP DURING A TWO YEAR

STINT IN THE MARINE, THEN HE

AND HIS BROTHER OPENED UP THEIR

OWN SURF SHOP.

MY GOAL WAS SUCCESS.

I FELT SUCCESS WAS THE THING

THAT WOULD GET MY DAD'S

ATTENTION, THE WORLD'S

ATTENTION, IT'S THE WAY TO

REDEEM MYSELF, WE ENDED UP

HAVING FIVE SURF SHOPS, THAT'S

WHEN THE ECONOMY HIT A ROUGH

TIME.

OUR BUSINESS ALMOST OVER NIGHT

WENT SOUTH, WE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT

TO DO, WE WERE HEART BROKEN, WE

WORKED SO HARD FOR NOT, AND AT

THIS TIME, I TURNED TO DRUGS

AND ALCOHOL MORE.

THAT WAS MY SCAPEGOAT TO TRY TO

TAKE AWAY THE PAIN, DID IT

WORK, NO, WENT INTO DEPRESSION.

AFTER HIS BUSINESS FAILED,

BRIGG LOST ALL HOPE.

I DECIDED I LIVED MY FULL

LIFE, IT'S TIME TO END IT,

WHO'S GOING TO MISS MY ANYWAY,

I WAS ESTRANGED FROM MY

PARENTS, MY OWN SIBLINGS, I

SAID I WOULD TAKE MY LIFE SO I

PUT THAT SHOTGUN IN MY MOUTH

EARLY ONE EVENING IN A DRUNKEN

STUPOR, I WASN'T AFRAID OF

DEATH, RIGHT ABOUT THE TIME I

WAS ABOUT TO PULL THE TRIGGER,

THE PHONE RINGS.

THE NIGHT BEFORE, BRIGG HAD

MET A CHRISTIAN BUSINESSMAN:

HE SAID, ARE YOU DOING

ANYTHING IMPORTANT RIGHT NOW, I

SAID NOTHING THAT CAN'T WAIT.

I MET A GENTLEMAN THAT GAVE

ME AN OPPORTUNITY TO REDEEM

MYSELF IN BUSINESS.

HE NOTICED I WAS LIVING IN A

SITUATION WHERE I WAS

PHYSICALLY HUNGRY, I WAS

PROBABLY ABOUT 105 POUNDS, NOT

LOOKING TOO GOOD, HE FED ME AND

HE KNEW I WOULDN'T RECEIVE SO

HE WOULD LEAVE GROCERIES ON MY

DOORSTEP, COULDN'T TELL ME, IT

GOT TO ME.

ONE DAY AT A BUSINESS

RETREAT, BRIGG HEARD A MESSAGE

THAT ALTERED THE COURSE OF HIS

LIFE.

HE WAS A VERY SUCCESSFUL MAN

OUT OF NORTH CAROLINA, HE DID

NOTHING BUT TAKE HIS BIBLE, THE

NUMBER ONE SELLER, HE OPENED IT

UP, HE DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING

OTHER THAN HE TURNED THE FIRST

CORINTHIANS, THE LOVE CHAPTER,

AND HE JUST READ IT WORD FOR

WORD, SOMETHING HAD TOUCHED MY

HEART IN IT, THAT LOVE HE WAS

SPEAKING OF WAS THE KIND OF

LOVE THAT I WAS PROBABLY HOPING

FOR, FOR MY FAMILY, FOR ME.

A FORGIVING LOVE, A REDEEMING

LOVE, AND HE NOTICED AND I

COULDN'T CONTAIN MYSELF BUT I

WAS WEEPING.

THE SPEAKER APPROACHED BRIGG.

AND I ASKED HIM WHO WROTE

THAT, AND HE SAYS, WELL, HE

SAYS, I KNOW THE AUTHOR AND I

CAN INTRODUCE HIM TO YOU, AND I

SAYS, REALLY, I WOULD LIKE TO

MEET HIM, AND HE SAID, IF YOU

BOW YOUR HEAD AND CLOSURE EYES,

I WILL INTRODUCE HIM TO YOU, I

DID BOW MY HEAD AND I DID PRAY

AND I FELT A WEIGHT LIFTED OFF

OF ME, IT WAS LIKE I WAS

WEIGHTLESS.

THAT DAY, BRIGG BECAME A

CHRISTIAN, OTHER CHRISTIANS AT

THE BUSINESS RETREAT SHARED

THEIR STORIES.

THEY TALKED TO ME ABOUT HOW

MY PAST SINS WERE FORGIVEN,

THAT GOD WON'T REMEMBER THERE

AS FAR AS THE EAST IS FROM THE

WEST, THAT I'M A NEW CREATURE

IN CHRIST, I HAVE A NEW CHANCE,

THEY TOLD ME ABOUT A GOD THAT'S

A GOD OF A SECOND AND A THIRD

CHANCE AND I SAID, WOW, I NEED

THAT.

AS I DROVE HOME, I WAS THROWING

THE BEER CANS OUT THE WINDOW, I

LITTERED, THREW THE BEER CANS,

I WENT HOME A FREE MAN BUT I

NEVER IN 31 YEARS EVER GONE

BACK TO MY WAYS OF DRUGS AND

ALCOHOL, THE MIRACLE WAS THE

DESIRE WAS GONE, I HAD NO

DESIRE WHATSOEVER WHERE I RAN

TO THAT AS A CRUTCH, IT WAS

GONE, JESUS CAME IN, THERE WAS

NO ROOM FOR NOTHING ELSE, I

DIDN'T WANT ANYTHING ELSE.

BRIGG SAYS GOD RESTORED HIS

FAMILY.

I WENT TO JUST ABOUT ANYBODY

THAT I REMEMBERED I HAD AWE

WITH AND ASKED FORGIVENESS JUST

LIKE MY MOM AND DAD WOULD IN

TIME SAW THE LORD, THEY SAW

LIGHT IN THIS LITTLE GUY, THIS

LONG HAIRED SURFER GUY.

BRIGG PRAYED FOR GOD TO GIVE

HIM WISDOM IN BUSINESS.

I MADE A COVENANT IN

GOD THAT I WOULD SHOW THIS

FIRST CORINTHIANS LOVE WITH HIS

HELP, I WANTED TO LEAD THEM

INTO THIS LIFE I WAS NOW

EXPERIENCING, THIS HOPE IN

CHRIST JESUS.

IN A YEAR AND THREE MONTHS, I

ENTERED INTO A FIELD, AN

INDUSTRY THAT EVIDENTLY GOD HAD

CALLED ME RELATIONAL MARKETING

THEN WENT TO THE TOP OF MY

FIELD IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF

YEARS.

TODAY BRIGG AND HIS WIFE ARE

LEADERS IN THE MONAVIE

COMPANY, HIS BOOK WHY NOT YOU,

WHY NOT NOW EXPRESSES HIS

PASSION TO HELP OTHERS SUCCEED

IN LIFE.

I MINISTER THROUGH MY

BUSINESS BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT

GOD HAS CALLED ME TO DO, IT'S A

JOYFUL THING, I LOVE DOING WHAT

GOD'S CALLED ME TO DO, I GAVE

MY HEART TO THE LORD, I GOT A

SECOND CHANCE, I MET MY WIFE, I

HAVE A BEAUTIFUL FAMILY, I HAVE

NO ADDICTIONS OTHER THAN I'M

ADDICTED TO THE LOVE OF CHRIST

BUT I'M FE GNAT CAL ABOUT MY

FAITH BECAUSE IT'S THE ONLY

ANSWER IN THESE TOUGH TIMES,

JESUS IS THE ANSWER.

YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU LOOK AT

BRIGG'S STORY, IT'S NOT UNLIKE A

WHOLE LOT OF PEOPLE, THEY HAVE

DADDY ISSUES BUT I BET YOU

DIDN'T KNOW THAT, MONAVIE IS

SWEEPING THE NATION OR THE

GLOBE BECAUSE OF JUST THE

BENEFITS IT HAS, MEDICINAL

BENEFITS AND EVERYTHING ELSE,

AND I BET THERE'S SOME MONAVIE

CONSULTANTS THAT ARE WATCHING

THIS RIGHT NOW.

WELL, LET ME GIVE YOU A VERSE,

IT'S A COMMON VERSE MANY TIMES

QUOTED BUT I BELIEVE IT'S

POWERFUL TODAY AND THAT IS

THIS, GOD KNOWS THE PLANS THAT

HE HAS FOR YOU, LOTS OF PEACE,

TO GIVE YOU A FUTURE AND HOPE,

THIS IS JEREMIAH 29:11, IT

SAYS WITH YOU GO TO ME, HE SAYS

WHEN YOU COME TO ME WITH ALL

YOUR HEART, I'M GOING TO BE

FOUND BY YOU.

YOU KNOW WHAT, I WONDER IF YOU

ARE IN THE SAME PLACE WHERE YOU

NEED A WITTY INVENTION AND YOU

NEED TO COMPLETELY ALLOW

EVERYTHING TO GET LIQUIDATED

AND ASK GOD TO COME INTO YOUR

HEART LIKE BRIGG HART, HE WAS

NEVER ABLE TO FIND THE APPROVAL

OF HIS DAD, HE WANTED TO SUCK A

BULLET OUT OF THE WRONG END OF

THE GUN AND THEN THE PHONE CALL

CAME, THIS IS YOUR PHONE CALL

AS WELL WHERE HE SAID, ARE YOU

DOING ANYTHING IMPORTANT, HE

SAID NOTHING THAT CAN'T WAIT

AND THAT CHANGED HIS LIFE.

IT CAN WAIT TODAY, BUT TODAY

YOU'VE GOT TO MAKE A DECISION

AND I'M GOING FORWARD AND I'M

GOING TO GIVE IT INTO THE

MASTER'S HANDS.

THE MASTER, AND I LOVE THE

SIGH BERRY JUICE, IT IS AN

AMAZING JUICE, GOD MADE THAT

JUICE, BUT TO THINK HE

INTERVENED IN THIS MAN'S LIFE

SO INCREDIBLY AND YOU MIGHT BE

THERE TODAY AND YOU'RE NOT

FEELING GOOD ABOUT LIFE, YOU

MIGHT EVEN FEEL THAT YOU WOULD

LIKE TO END IT ALL, PERHAPS IT

HASN'T GONE THE WAY YOU THOUGHT

IT SHOULD AND YOUR DREAMS HAVE

BEEN BROKEN AND YOU HAVEN'T HAD

THE APPROVAL OF THOSE THAT YOU

LOVE.

LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, YOU

HAVE GOD'S APPROVAL.

HE MADE YOU, HE CREATED YOU, HE

KNOWS YOU, HE SEES YOUR

SITUATION AND HE LOVES YOU AND

BRIAN'S TODAY, TODAY IS YOUR

CALL-OUT, LET US BE YOUR CALL,

DON'T DO ANYTHING THAT YOU

CAN'T TAKE BACK, ALL YOU NEED

TO DO IS SUBMIT YOUR SITUATION

AND YOUR LIFE RIGHT NOW TO THE

POWER OF JESUS CHRIST AND YOU

WILL NEVER BE THE SAME.

HEY, DO THAT AND I WANT TO

GET THIS INTO YOUR HANDS AS

WELL AFTER THAT, IT'S WITH THE

HEART THEY'RE GOING TO BELIEVE

AND WHERE THE HEART THAT YOU'RE

GOING TO CONFESS, NO LONGER AM

I GOING TO DO IT MY WAY, JESUS,

I'M A SINNER, I NEED YOUR HELP,

I'M NO LONGER IN CHARGE, I'M

ASKING YOU TO COME INTO MY

LIFE, LET ME KNOW THIS LOVE IN

JESUS NAME, AMEN.

AMEN.
