HURRICANE SANDY COULD MAKE

HISTORY WHEN IT HITS THE EAST

COLD AIR FROM CANADA AND HEAVY

WINDS AND RAIN AND MAYBE EVEN

SNOW.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS THE STROER

FOR THE 50 MILLION OF US WHO

LIVE IN SANDY'S PATH EXPECT

HEAVY RAINS AND EXTREME COASTAL

FLOODING.

IF YOU ARE FURTHER OUT THAN

CBN NEWS.

GORDAN: IF YOU LIVE ON THE

EAST COAST PARTICULARLY IN

DELAWARE, NEW JERSEY, NEW YORK

CITY, PENNSYLVANIA, I HOPE YOU

ARE TAKING PRECAUTIONS IN

ADVANCE OF THIS STORM.

I HOPE WE ARE PRAYING THIS STORM

WOULD MOVE HARMLESSLY OUT TO

SEA.

THERE COULD BE A TRACK WHEN THAT

HAPPENS.

THE LAST THING WE NEED IS FIVE

DAYS OF SOAKING RAIN, SNOW,

SLEET, ICE AND THE WINDS, HIGH

TIDES, ALL OF THAT, THIS IS A

FRANKENSTORM.

OPERATION BLESSING IS THERE, IF

YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN

SAME GREAT SOLDIERS IT IS

AMAZING TO HEAR THAT FROM

ANOTHER FOREIGN UNIT.

GENERAL FRANKLIN STRESSES IT

IS NOT RELATED TO ANY FOREIGN

THREAT.

SYRIA AND OTHERS REPRESENT A

CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER TO

ISRAEL.

REPORTER: THIS IS STATIONED

TEMPORARILY OUTSIDE OF TEL AVIV.

IT IS EXPECTED TEL AVIV COULD BE

GROUND ZERO.

MEANWHILE SOUTHERN ISRAEL BECAME

GROUND ZERO AFTER HAMAS AND

OTHER GROUPS FIRED MORE THAN 80

ROCKETS INTO ISRAEL.

IT SENT THOUSANDS RUSHING FOR

COVER.

VERY, VERY SCARY.

GAZA IS A HUB OF TERROR

ORGANIZATIONS.

DIFFERENT TERROR ORGANIZATIONS

CONSCIENCE?

THOSE ARE GIANT AND ALL IN PLAY.

REPORTER: VIRGINIA'S

EVANGELICALS SWEPT THE

CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN GOVERNOR

INTO OFFICE. MORE THAN HALF

A CRUCIAL SWING STATE, THEY

COULD BE THE AMERICANS WHO

DETERMINE WHO IS PRESIDENT.

IN THE 21ST CENTURY, MEN AND

WOMEN CONSTITUTE A LARGE

PERCENTAGE OF CANDIDATES.

TO A FEW OF THEM THERE IS

SOMETHING ELSE THAT MEANS A

WHOLE LOT MORE.

JESUS CHRIST CHANGED MY LIFE.

TRUST HIM FOR A PERFECT PEACE.

HE IS THE KING OF KINGS.

A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE SEARCHING

FOR PEACE.

YOU CAN HAVE EVERYTHING, THE

FAME, MONEY, WOMEN, BOATS,

HOUSE, IT IS NOT FULFILLING.

ONLY JESUS IS FULFILLING.

I THINK JESUS LOVES YOU NO

MATTER WHAT.

WHAT HE GIVES ME IS A GIFT@ TO O

THINGS FOR HIM.

I WORSHIP FOR EVERYTHING I HAVE

GOT.

I CAN'T SING AND DANCE.

I CAN'T DO THOSE THINGS LIKE

DAVID DID.

ALL UNDERSTANDING.

NO MATTER WHAT YOU ARE WALKING

THROUGH, YOU HAVE THE CONFIDENCE

HE IS WITH YOU.

THAT HIS RIGHT HAND UPHOLDS YOU.

HE'LL SEE YOU THROUGH WHATEVER

VALLEY YOU ARE GOING THROUGH.

HERE ARE MEN AT THE TOP OF THE

GAME IN THE WORLD SERIES THEY

ARE SAYING AGAIN AND AGAIN AND

WOULDN'T BE HERE.

EVEN IF I WERE HERE WITHOUT HIM,

I WOULDN'T HAVE ANY PEACE WITH

IT.

IT WOULDN'T SATISFY, HE IS THE

ONLY THING THAT SATISFIES.

THAT IS UNUSUAL THAT WE GO

THROUGH LIFE THINKING SOME HOW

OR ANOTHER WE CAN MAKE IT ON OUR

OWN, OUR OWN WILL IS BETTER, WE

KNOW WHAT WE ARE DOING.

WE MISS OUT ON THE GREATEST

RELATIONSHIP WE CAN POSSIBLY

HAVE YOU WERE CREATED BY HIM AND

CREATED WITH ONE PURPOSE TO HAVE

A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.

THAT WAS HIS IDEA.

IT WAS HIS DREAM THAT YOU AND I

WOULD BE IN A GARDEN TOGETHER

AND COME DOWN IN THE COOL OF THE

EVENING JUST TO TALK WITH US.

HE WOULD PROVIDE ALL HIS NEED

ACCORDING TO HIS RICHES AND

GLORY AND DID IT ALL JUST TO

KNOW US AND WE WOULD KNOW HIM.

HE CREATED ETERNITY IN OUR

HEARTS, HE GAVE US ETERNITY SO

WE COULD KNOW HIM AND KNOW HIM

INTIMATELY IN A WORLD THAT JUST

DOESN'T UNDERSTAND.

IF WE DON'T HAVE THAT, THEN THAT

ETERNITY IS VACANT.

YOU CAN TRY TO FILL IT UP WITH

ALL KINDS OF THINGS, WHETHER IT

IS FAME OR MONEY OR DRUGS,

ALCOHOL, YOU CAN FILL IT UP.

YOU CAN EVEN FILL IT UP WITH

WORK.

YOU CAN NEVER FILL IT UP, THOSE

THINGS WON'T SATISFY, IT WON'T

GET YOU THE UNDERSTANDING OF

WHAT IT REALLY MEANS TO KNOW

HIM.

IF YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD THIS

BEFORE, HERE IS A PRAYER FOR

YOU, JESUS, IF THIS IS REAL, IF

YOU ARE REAL, IF YOU REALLY MADE

ME, IF YOU REALLY LOVED ME,

COULD YOU COME INTO MY HEART

COULD YOU SHOW UP FOR ME COULD

YOU SHOW ME YOU WANT TO BE MY

SAVIOR.

IF YOU HAVE BEEN A CHRISTIAN FOR

WHATEVER REASON YOU FELL AWAY.

YOU DECIDED YOU WANTED TO LIVE

LIFE ON MY TERMS, YOU CAN COME

BACK.

YOU CAN BE RENEWED, YOU CAN KNOW

THE JOY OF YOUR SALVATION YET

AGAIN.

ALL IT TAKES, ALL IT TAKES IS

FOR YOU TO CONFESS YOUR SINS,

TURN AWAY FROM THEM HE WILL BE

FAITHFUL AND JUST AND FORGIVE

YOU AND CLEANSE YOU FROM ALL

UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS TURN TO

HIM.

IF YOU WANT HELP WITH THIS

PRAYER, IF THERE ARE THINGS, CAN

JESUS REALLY FORGIVE THAT?

FORGIVEN.

TERRY: YOU REALLY, REALLY

SUFFERED FOR A LONG TIME, DEEPLY

SUFFERED WITH SEVERE INSECURITY.

WHAT WAS THE ROOT OF THAT?

I ALWAYS SAY BEAUTY IS A

PERCEPTION ISSUE, IT IS NOT A

REFLECTION ISSUE.

MY FIRST MEMORY OUTSIDE OF THE

HOME.

FIRST MEMORY OUTSIDE OF THE HOME

WAS SEXUAL.

IT OVERSHADOWED THE ENORMOUS

AMOUNT OF GOOD.

TERRY: DID YOU ALWAYS KNOWN

THAT?

DID YOU KNOW IT WAS CONNE

THIS CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCE?

IT WASN'T CONSCIOUS AT ALL.

I THOUGHT WHY DID I HATE MYSELF.

I HAD TO MAKE SURE I LOOKED AS

PERFECT AS POSSIBLE AT ALL

TIMES.

I HAD TO DIVERT THE MASSES FROM

SEEING THE DISASTER IN MY HEART0

IF YOU SEE IT, YOU WILL(0 REJE

ME.

TERRY: WHAT WAS YOUR LOWEST

POINT?

A LOT OF LOW POINTS, DEALING

WITH DEPRESSION, ADDICTION,

ALCOHOL, EATING DISORDERS.

I WAS IN COLLEGE.

I CALLED MY DAD.

I WAS A BELIEVER AT THIS POINT.

I LOVED GOD, BUT I DIDN'T

BELIEVE HE COULD EVER LOVE ME IN

THE PLACES OF MY DEEPEST SHAME.

DAD, I WILL NEVER KILL MYSELF, I

DON'T HAVE THE ENERGY, I DON'T

HAVE THE ENERGY TO KEEP ON

LIVING.

HE CAME THROUGH THE NIGHT AND

RESCUED ME AND PULLED ME OUT.

I WENT TO TREATMENT FOR MY

EATING DISORDER.

TERRY: DID THAT ALLOW YOU TO

EXPLORE THOSE SHAMEFUL PLACES?

ABSOLUTELY.

I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND.

ALL I KNEW IS THAT I HAD

TERRIBLE BEHAVIORS.

I WAS ADDICTED TO FOOD.

FOOD IS THE CHRISTIAN DRUG.

I WOULD BINGE EAT AND STARVE

MYSELF.

I WAS JEALOUS AND A GOSSIP.

ALL THESE BAD FRUITS.

I WONDERED WHY WOULD THEY KEEP

GROWING BACK.

HEART OF THE MATTER WAS THAT

BELIEVED MORE THAN I BELIEVED

THE SKY WAS BLUE, I WAS UNWORTHY

OF LOVE.

IT WAS ALLOWING THE FATHER'S

LOVE INTO THE PLACES OF MY

DEEPEST PLACES THAT HEALED ME

AND NATURALLY THE FRUIT OF MY

LIFE CHANGED.

I STARTED LOOKING AT MYSELF IN

THE MIRROR000 AND GOING YOU ARE

ACTUALLY BEAUTIFUL.

I COULD SEE IT BECAUSE I WAS8 x

LOVED.

YOUR HUSBAND AND THE TWO OF YOU

MARRIED.

HUSBANDXX TO HELPXéX YOU IN THE0

PHASES?0

I CALL HIM STUD HUB.

WE WERE WATCHING TV.

I WOULD BINGE TO CONTROL FOOD TO

FEEL A SENSE OF CONTROL.

FINANCES WERE OUT OF CONTROL AND

CIRCUMSTANCES, BUT I COULD

BINNEN

BINNEN BINGE AND FEEL EUPHORIC.

I AM IN THE FRIDGE AND I HEAR

SOMEBODY BEHIND ME.

I FREEZE BECAUSE I AM CAUGHT.

I TURN AROUND.

HE HAS THE BIGGEST SMILE ON HIS

FACE.

HE POPS OPEN A BAG OF CHIPS, HE

SAYS BABY, IF YOU NEED TO BINGE,

I DON'T WANT YOU TO DO IT ALONE.

I AM GOING TO BINGE WITH YOU.

HE HAD SEEN ME IN THE PLACE I

BELIEVED COULD NEVER BE LOVED

AND NOT ONLY HAD HE LOVED ME, HE

CRAWLED DOWN THERE TO BE THERE

WITH ME.

THAT WAS WHAT THE FATHER DID FOR

ME AND WITH ME EVERY SINGLE DAY

OF MY LIFE.

HE CRAWLED DOWN INTO THE PIG

PEN.

HE GETS IN THOSE PLACES, NOT

ONLY WILL I LOVE YOU, I WILL

STAY WITH YOU AND LOVE YOU INTO

WHOLENESS.

TERRY: THAT÷ BRINGS US÷ TOZ

MOST PERSONAL FEARS AS SHE FACES

A NEW CHALLENGE, SURVIVING

BREAST CANCER.

JONI EARECKSON TADA IS ONE OF

THE WORLD'S LEADING CHRISTIAN

DISABILITIES ADVOCATES.

DIVING ACCIDENT AT THE AGE OF 17

PARALYZED HER FROM THE SHOULDERS

DOWN.

SHE STARTED THE JONI AND FRIENDS

DISABILITY CENTER AS A THOSE

FACING SIMILAR CHALLENGES.úp 88

DOCTORS0 DIAGNOSED HER WITH STAE

THREE BREAST CANCER.

I AM A SPINAL COURT INJURED

QUADRIPLEGIC FOR 45 YEARS,

CANCER NEVER ENTERED MY

THINKING.

IT WAS A SHOCK.

LITTLE DID I REALIZE ONE OUT OF

EVERY EIGHT WOMEN WILL GET

BREAST CANCER. @

SHE DECIDED TO DOCUMENT HER

STORY WITH THE HOPE OF HELPING

OTHERS.

I REMEMBER WHEN IT STARTED

HAPPENING, GOD, GIVE ME A BREAK,

I MEAN FOUR DECADES IN A

WHEELCHAIR, DON'T I GET A LITTLE

REPRIEVE HERE?

DON'T I GET TIME OFF.

FURTHER TESTS REVEALED CANCER

AND SPREAD TO LIMP NODES.

FLUSH

IT MADE ME FRIGHTENED.

FOR ONE THING I AM MARRIED.

MY HUSBAND OF 30 YEARS, WHAT

WILL HE SAY?

A QUESTION IN ALMOST ANY

CANCER DIAGNOSIS, WHAT IF I HAD

KNOWN SOONER?

IT HAD BEEN NINE YEARS SINCE MY

LAST EXAM.

I THINK WE WOULD HAVE CAUGHT

IT SOONER.

STAGE THREE BREAST CANCER IS

PRETTY SCARY, PERHAPS IT WOULD

ONLY HAVE BEEN ONE OR TWO HAD I

HAD THE MAMMOGRAM SOONER.

WOMEN AGE 20-39 UNDERGO A

CLINICAL BREAST EXAM EVERY THREE

YEARS, OVER 40, EVERY YEAR AND

ANNUAL MAMMOGRAM.

HER QUADRIPLEGIC COMPLICATED

TREATMENT.

BECAUSE OF HER DISABILITY, HER

LUNGS ARE FRAGILE, BONES

INCREDIBLY THIN.

AFTER PRAYER AND ADVISE FROM

DOCTORS, SHE DECIDED TO STOCK

CHEMOTHERAPY.

MY LIFE IS A MATTER OF

BALANCING COMPETING RISKS.

WHAT IS GOING TO ENABLE ME TO

LIVE THE LONGEST WITH THE BEST

QUALITY OF LIFE POSSIBLE.

YES, THERE IS A RISK MY CANCER

WILL RETURN.

AS A QUADRIPLEGIC, I WOULD

RATHER BE ABLE TO SIT UP IN A

WHEELCHAIR AND BREATHE AND THE

STRENGTH AND STAMINA TO FACE MY

DAYS.

JONI GET HER THOUGHTS

FOCUSSED ON THE LORD, NOT THE

CANCER.

I BEGAN TO SEE CANCER WOULD

ONLY WIN IF I FAILED TO CHERISH

JESUS CHRIST.

I WAS ABLE TO LIVE IN THE

PRESENT, NOT WALLOW IN THE PAST.

NOT BE FILLED WITH THOUGHTS OF

REGRET, WHY DIDN'T I GET A

MAMMOGRAM?

THERE IS SPECIAL JOE AND COURAGE

IN BEING ABLE TO LIVE IN THE

MOMENT.

TODAY JONI IS HAPPY AND

HEALTHY.

IT COULD TAKE UP TO SEVERAL

YEARS TO DECLARE SOMEONE

OFFICIALLY CANCER.

IN THE MEANTIME SHE IS THANKFUL

TO BE A LIVING TESTIMONY TO

GOD'S FAITHFULNESS.

WHEN PEOPLE SEE US SMILE IN

THE MIDST OF PAIN, THEY WILL

LOOK AT US AND THINK HER GOD

MUST BE PRETTY GREAT TO INSPIRE

THAT LOYALTY.

THAT IS AMAZING SHE CAN SMILE IN

THE MIDST OF AFFLICTION.

I NEED HER JOY.

WHAT A RICH TESTIMONY THAT IS.
