Watch the 700 Club Canada for December 31, 2012. Read Transcript


HELLO I AM BRIAN WARREN.

AND I AM LAURA-LYNN TYLER

THOMPSON.

THANKS FOR JOINING US TODAY.

LAURA-LYNN, GOD IS AMAZING.

I LOVE HIM SO.

THERE WAS ONE MOMENT I WAS

ASKING GOD FOR DIRECTION.

I WAS STRUGGLING BECAUSE I

WANTED TO KNOW IS THIS THE GIRL

I AM GOING TO MARRY FOR THE

REST OF MY LIFE?

WOW.

BIG MOMENT. I SAW THE

HORSES RUNNING IN THE

BACKGROUND.

I SAID THIS IS IT.

I WAS STILL PLAYING IN THE CFL

WITH THE EDMONTON ESKIMOS.

I SAW A LITTLE RING.

IT WAS A DIAMOND RING AND HAD

DEFINITIONS KP.

KAREN PASOL WHICH WAS MY WIFE'S

MAIDEN NAME.

THAT MUST BE A SIGN. YOU

KNOW WHAT?

WE HAVE BEEN MARRIED 25 YEARS.

AMAZING. THAT IS AMAZING!

MY GOODNESS. ON TODAY'S

SHOW YOU'LL SEE TWO AMAZING

STORIES OF GUYS AFFECTEDED BY

GOD.

EUGENE LIFE WAS BLEAK WHEN

HIS LIFE WAS IN A COMA.

HIS WIFE BEGAN TO PRAY.

SEE WHAT HAPPENED WHEN THIS

MAN MET A FRIEND IN SOLITARY

CONFINEMENT.

AND LAURA-LYNN TYLER THOMPSON

IS BACK ON THE STREETS AND

FINDING THIS.

EUGENE WENT ON A RUN NOT

KNOWING THAT HIS LIFE WAS ABOUT

TO CHANGE.

ON A CHILLING NOVEMBER DAY

IN 2007, EUGENE PAIN WAS TAKING

A JOG ON HIS FAVORITE ROUTE.

OUT OF NOWHERE A TAXI CAB

PLOWED INTO HIM.

EMERGENCY CREWS ARRIVED WITHIN

MINUTES AND AIR LIFTED EUGENE

TO THE SHOCK TRAUMA CENTER IN

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND.

HIS HEART STOP BEATING SEVERAL

TIMES.

EMT'S REVIVED HIM.

THE DIRECTOR OF NEUROTRAUMA

DIDN'T KNOW IF HE WOULD LIVE OR

DIE.

THEY USUALLY DON'T DO WELL.

60 PERCENT CHANCE HE WOULD DIE

OR WOULD HAVE BAD OUTCOME.

MEDICAL TEAM RUSHED EUGENE INTO

SURGERY.

EVEN IF HE LIVED HE MIGHT HAVE

TO LIVE WITH SEVERE BRAIN

DAMAGE, FRACTURED NECK, BROKEN

BONES AND INTERNAL INJURIES.

THE 12-HOUR SURGERY FELT LIKE A

LIFETIME TO EUGENE'S LIFE AND

FAMILY.

MY FAITH WAS TESTED.

WHENEVER DOUBT WOULD COME IN,

SOMEONE WOULD COME IN AND SAY

LET'S PRAY.

WE PRAYED WITHIN SEVEN TO EIGHT

TIMES WITHIN THAT 12-HOUR

SURGERY.

WE ARE PRAYING ASKING GOD TO

SAVE HIS LIFE.

DOCTORS HAD TO AMPUTATE

EUGENE'S RIGHT LEG. HE HAD

TUBES RUNNING OUT OF HIS NOSE.

WE BROKE DOWN CRYING.

OH MY GOODNESS.

THIS IS NOT MY HUSBAND.

THEY SAID WE ARE GOING TO GIVE

YOUR HUSBAND UNTIL THE END OF

THIS WEEK.

TWO WEEKS LATER HE IS STILL

ALIVE.

EUGENE SUFFERED KIDNEY FAILURE,

STAFF INFECTION AND DOUBLE

PNEUMONIA.

EVERYDAY WE WERE GETTING BAD

REPORTS.

FIVE WEEKS AFTER THE

ACCIDENT JANICE CRIED OUT TO

GOD IN DESPERATION.

I SAID I NEED YOU TO SHOW ME

A SIGN THIS MAN IS GOING TO

LIVE.

ON NEW YEAR'S DAY HE OPENED HIS

EYES.

THAT WAS MY SIGN.

I NEEDED THE LORD TO SAY THIS

IS IT, JANE.

I WAS OVERWHELMED.

FILLED WITH JOY.

I WAS LIKE THANK YOU, GOD.

AFTER THREE MONTHS IN THE

HOSPITAL AND INTENSE PHYSICAL

THERAPY, EUGENE LEARNED TO WALK

USING A PROSTHETIC LEG.

DOCTORS WARNED HIM LIFE AT HOME

WOULD NEVER BE THE SAME.

DOCTORS SAID HE WOULD NEVER

DRIVE AGAIN AND NEVER BE LEFT

BECAUSE OF HIS DRAMATIC BRAIN

INJURY.

THEY SAID HE IS NOT GOING TO BE

ABLE TO GO TO THE GYM.

HE WOULDN'T ACCEPT THOSE

LIMITATIONS.

HE WORKED HARD.

I SAID HUH UH, DO IT, YOU

ARE STRONG.

I WOULD MOTIVATE HIM AND GIVE

HIM SCRIPTURES.

I SAID YOUR FAVORITE SCRIPTURE,

YOU CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH

CHRIST AND STRENGTHEN HIM.

YOU COULD SEE HIM SAY YEAH, I

CAN DO THIS.

ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST

THAT STRENGTHENS ME.

EUGENE PAIN IS DRIVING AGAIN

AND WORKING OUT AT THE GYM.

THE MAN DOCTORS DUBBED MIRACLE

PAIN CONTINUES TO SURPRISE THEM

WITH HIS AMAZING RECOVERY.

TWAS A MIRACLE FOR EUGENE

TO DRIVE.

WHEN HE SAID HE'LL NEVER

LEAVE YOU OR FORSAKE YOU, WE

ARE A LIVING TESTIMONY.

EVERYTHING I HAVE BEEN

THROUGH, IT COULD HAVE BEEN THE

OTHER WAY.

GOD KEPT ME HERE.

I CAN LOOK AT WHAT GOD HAD DONE

FOR ME.

GOD HAS BLESSED ME AND I GIVE

HIM ALL THE HONOR AND GLORY.

THAT AMAZES ME HOW IN ONE

MOMENT GOING OUT FOR A JOG

HEALTHY, ALL OF A SUDDEN, LIFE

CHANGES TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY,

THEN DID YOU NOTICE HOW JANICE

HAD TO BATTLE THROUGHOUT DOUBT

HERSELF.

LORD, MY HUSBAND, IS HE GOING

TO SURVIVE?

NO ONE EXPECTED EUGENE TO COME

OUT OF IT.

I BELIEVED THAT STORY IS

SPEAKING TO SOMEONE NOW, YOU

HAVE A LOVED ONE YOU ARE

PRAYING FOR.

I WANT TO GIVE YOU A PROPHETIC

WORD.

I BELIEVE THIS IS FOR YOU

TODAY, COMES OUT OF THE BOOK OF

JOB, 14:7, FOR THERE IS HOPE

FOR A TREE IF IT IS CUT DOWN IT

WILL SPROUT AGAIN.

ITS TENDER ROOTS, ITS SHOOTS

WILL NOT SEIZE.

AT THE SCENT OF WATER IT WILL

BUD AGAIN.

YOU CAN'T SMELL WATER.

THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT,

SEMIABLE OF GOD HAS BEEN

RECOGNIZED AS THE WATER OF THE

SPIRIT.

I BELIEVE GOD WANTS TO

ENCOURAGE YOU TODAY JUST LIKE

HE DID WITH THE MIRACLE PAIN.

THIS IS NOT GOING TO END IN

DEATH.

YOU SHALL LIVE AND NOT DIE AND

DECLARE THE WORKS OF THE LORD.

BRIAN THAT IS THE WORD FOR

SOMEONE TODAY.

THE LOSS OF HOPE IS SOMING OVER

YOUR SOUL.

HOPE DEFERRED MAKES THE HEART

SICK.

IT IS LIKE AN AVALANCHE.

YOU FEEL SICK INSIDE.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO FEEL SICK.

WE HAVE THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE

ON OUR SIDE.

HE IS A MIRACLE WORKING GOD.

PUT YOUR HOPE IN GOD.

WHY SO DOWNCAST OH MY SOUL,

DAVID SAID THIS, PUT YOUR HOPE

IN GOD.

THAT WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING.

I WANT YOU TO HOLD ON TO

THIS, CALL THE NUMBER ON THE

SCREEN, 855-759-0700.

LET'S PRAY WITH YOU NOW.

FATHER IN THE NAME OF JESUS, WE

PLEAD THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST

ON THAT PERSON.

WE ARE ASKING YOU, LORD, YOU

WOULD NOW IN THE NAME OF JESUS

BRING LIFE INTO THEIR SPIRIT.

LET LIFE COME INTO THEIR BODY.

LET LIFE COME INTO THEIR DREAMS.

OH GOD, WE JOIN TOGETHER WITH

MEN AND WOMEN ACROSS THIS

COUNTRY, LAURA-LYNN AND MYSELF,

WE SAY IN JESUS' NAME, WE SPEAK

LIFE AND BIND THE SPIRIT OF

DEATH IN JESUS' NAME.

IN JESUS' NAME, THAT IS FOR

YOU TODAY.

IF YOU PRAYED THAT PRAYER WITH

BRIAN, WOULD YOU CALL US,

855-759-0700.

OPERATORS ARE STANDING BY.

IT IS A GOOD DAY.

WHAT IS IT THAT YOU TRULY

WORSHIP TODAY?

WHEREIN LIES YOUR ADORATION?

WE ALL WORSHIP SOMETHING.

WORSHIP MEANS DEVOTION,

REVERENCE.

WHAT WILL YOU GIVE UP OTHER

THINGS OF VALUE IN YOUR LIFE

FOR?

WORSHIP IS A DEEP AND PROFOUND

WORD THAT IT COMPELS US AND

ASKS THAT WE BE TRULY

CONSECRATED.

WE WOULDN'T SAY WE WORSHIP OUR

TELEVISION, THAT WOULD SEEM

TRITE.

MANY SAY WE WORSHIP GOD.

WHERE DO WE PUT OUR TIME.

LASER-LIKE ATTENTION TO THE

OBJECT OF YOUR HEART.

FOR THREE MEN IN DANIEL

THE THIRD CHAPTER SHADRACH, MESD

ABEDNEGO

WORSHIP WOULD COST THEM.

KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR

THESE MEN KNEW THERE WAS ONE

SUPREME BEING WORTHY OF THEIR

HEARTS AND THEIR ADORATION.

THEY DECLARED THEIR UNDYING

LOYALTY TO THE GOD OF THE

HEAVENS.

THIS ENRAGED THE KING.

THEY WERE TIED UP AND THROWN

INTO A FURNACE.

IT WAS IN THIS PLACE OF

COMPLETE WORSHIP SOLD OUT

WORSHIP SO PROFOUND IT BROUGHT

THEM FACE TO FACE WITH DEATH.

IT WAS IN THIS PLACE THEY FOUND

THEMSELVES IN THE VERY PRESENCE

OF THEIR GOD.

EVEN THE KING COULD SEE THERE

WERE NOT JUST THREE MEN IN THE

FURNACE, NOW THEY WERE FOUR.

THE GOD THEY HONORED HONORED

THEM WITH HIS PRESENCE, DANIEL

3:24, THE KING SAW AND WAS

ASTOUNDED AND JUMPED UP AND

SAID TO HIS COUNSELORS, DID WE

NOT CAST THREE MEN BOUND INTO

THE MIDST OF THE FIRE.

I SEE FOUR MEN LOOSE.

THEY ARE NOT HURT, THE FORM OF

THE FOURTH IS LIKE THE SON OF

THE GODS.

KING TOLD THEM TO COME OUT.

ALL OF HIS MAN MARVELLED THEY

WEREN'T SINGED BY THE FIRE --

WORSHIP IS YOUR PROTECTION FROM

THE ENEMY.

WHEN GOD INHABITS AND DWELLS IN

YOUR WORSHIP, HE WILL BE THERE

RIGHT IN YOUR MIDST WHEREVER

YOU GO, HE GOES.

WHEN YOU NEED HIM, HE IS THERE.

BECAUSE WHAT YOU WORSHIP WILL

BE YOUR POWER.

IF YOU SPEND YOUR TIME ON

THINGS WITH NO POWER, WHEN THE

FIRE OF ADVERSITY COMES YOU

WILL FIND YOURSELF SORELY

NEEDING A LOT MORE THAN YOU

HAVE GOT.

VERSE 28, NEBUCHADNEZZAR

SAYS BLESS BE THE WHO HAS

SENT HIS SERVANTS AND TRUSTED

AND RELIED ON HIM.

THEY SET ASIDE THE KING'S

COMMAND AND YIELDED THEIR

BODIES RATHER THAN WORSHIP ANY

GOD FOR THERE IS NO OTHER GOD

WHO CAN DELIVER IN THIS WAY.

THAT WAS SPOKEN BY THE KING.

WHAT DO YOU TRULY WORSHIP AND

WHEREIN LIES YOUR ADORATION?

IS WHAT YOU WORSHIP ABLE TO

SAVE YOU FROM DEATH?

REDEEM YOU FROM DESTRUCTION?

GIVE HIGH REGARD TO WHAT OR WHO

YOU WORSHIP FOR IT WILL BECOME

THE SOURCE OF YOUR POWER AND

FOUNDATION OF YOUR DESTINY WHEN

YOU NEED IT.

AMEN.

YOU KNOW WORSHIP IS SO

IMPORTANT IT IS WORTHSHIP.

JOHN CHAPTER 4, THE FATHER IS

LOOKING FOR TRUE WORSHIPPERS

WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH.

2 CHRONICLES, 16TH CHAPTER,

EYES OF THE LORD GO TO AND FRO

THROUGHOUT THE EARTH ON BEHALF

OF THOSE STRONG TOTALLY

COMMITTED TO HIM.

IF GOD SEEMS HARD TO FIND, STOP

WHERE YOU ARE, START TO WORSHIP.

HE 'LL FIND YOU.

THIS IS A GREAT DAY, CALL THE

NUMBER ON YOUR SCREEN AND SAY I

AM A WORSHIPPER.

I AM SAYING GO AHEAD, "THE 700

CLUB CANADA" THANK GOD FOR YOU.

COMING UP NEXT, LAURA-LYNN

STORY.

DAD, PERIOD.

EVER SINCE I WAS BORN, A

DRINKING THING WITH MY WHOLE

FAMILY.

MY MOM DECIDED TO COME OUT HERE

AND LEAVE ME AND MY LITTLE

BROTHER AND NOT TELL US SHE WAS

COMING FROM ALBERTA.

I WAS ONLY 10, HERE IS MY

BROTHER AND STILL IN DIAPERS.

I HAD TO COLLECT BOTTLES TO PAY

FOR BABY FOOD.

I MOVE OUT HERE, START HANGING

OUT WITH MY COUSIN AND STARTED

DOING EVERYTHING.

A WHILE?

LIFE?

BECOME A PART OF THIS LIFE

CHANGING MISSION, RIGHT HERE IN

CANADA.

WELCOME BACK.

UP NEXT A LIFE SENTENCE LEADS

TO A LIFE CHANGE.

THIS IS MATT KURNS, ROAD TO

REDEMPTION.

I WAS HEADING TO A MAXIMUM

SECURITY PRISON WHICH HOUSED 11

CONVICTS.

I WAS AT THE TIME 17.

ON NOVEMBER 16TH, 1979, MATT

KURN FACED A 60 YEAR SENTENCE.

HE WAS HOUSED WITH CAREER

CONVICTS.

VIOLENCE RULED THE PRISON YARD.

I WAS A 17-YEAR-OLD KID

TRYING TO SURVIVE.

MY REACTION TO THAT ENVIRONMENT

WAS TO BECOME MORE VIOLENT THAN

THEY WERE.

UNTIL 7TH GRADE MATT AS A

MODEL STUDENT.

HE STARTED HANGING OUT WITH A

BAD CROWD.

STARTED WITH GOING TO

CLASSES LATE.

HANGING OUT IN THE HALLS TOO

LONG AND SKIPPING SCHOOL

ALTOGETHER, DRINKING, SMOKING

CIGARETTES.

IT IS A SLIPPERY SLOPE.

SOON THEY WANTED BIGGER THRILLS.

THEY BEGAN STEALING CARS.

WE BROKE INTO THE VEHICLES,

WE WOULD HAVE THEM THE REST OF

THE WEEKEND.

DRIVE FRIDAY, SATURDAY, SUNDAY

AND DITCH THEM.

THEN ONE WEEKEND HIS FRIENDS

DECIDED TO BRING A GUN.

INSTEAD OF STEALING THEY WANTED

TO CAR JACK SOMEONE.

IF YOU SHOW SOMEONE A GUN,

YOU SUSPECT THEY WILL JUST LET

YOU TAKE THE CAR.

LATE THAT NIGHT A TEENAGE

BOY STOPPED ON A DARK QUIET

ROADWAY.

HE THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO HELP

GUYS WITH A BROKEN DOWN CAR.

A FRIEND I WAS WITH PULLED A

GUN ON HIM.

HE REFUSED TO GIVE UP HIS

CAR AND CAME TOWARDS MY FRIEND.

MY FRIEND SHOT HIM.

VICTIM OF THE ROBBERY DIED ON

THE SCENE FROM THE GUNSHOT

WOUND.

BEFORE THE VICTIM DIED HE

GAVE A DESCRIPTION TO THE

POLICE AND ONE MONTH LATER

ARRESTED AND CHARGED WITH

MURDER.

IF YOU ARE INVOLVED IN A

FELONY AND SOMEBODY GETS

KILLED, EVERYONE INVOLVED IN

THAT FELONY IS CHARGED WITH THE

MURDER.

ALL OF US WERE CHARGED.

I REALIZED THEN IT WAS SERIOUS.

MATT WAS SENTENCED TO 60

YEARS AND SENT TO A MAXIMUM

SECURITY PRISON.

FOR FOUR YEARS MATT LIVED IN

THIS JUNGLE OF VIOLENCE

FIGHTING AT EVERY TURN.

I WOULD STAB SOMEBODY, HIT

SOMEBODY, TRYING TO MAKE A

REPUTATION.

AFTER ONE FIGHT MATT HAD

BEATEN THE OTHER INMATE SO

SEVERELY HE WENT INTO A COMA.

MATT WOUND UP IN SOLITARY

CONFINEMENT.

HE FELT GUILTY.

HE STARTED READING A BIBLE HIS

FATHER HAD GIVEN HIM YEARS

BEFORE.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO

WITH THE GUILT.

I PICKED UP THE BIBLE.

THE GUILT DIDN'T COMPLETELY GO

AWAY.

I FELT LIKE I WAS ADDRESSING IT

SOME HOW.

MATT SPENT A YEAR IN

SOLITARY CONFINEMENT READING

HIS BIBLE.

THAT IS WHEN HE BECAME A NEW MA.

I COULD FEEL A FIRE

WITHIN ME.

IT WAS A CHANGE FROM MY

SURROUNDINGS AND MY WORLD.

I REALIZED GOD HAD TOUCHED MY

HEART.

I UNDERSTOOD FROM SCRIPTURE

WHAT THAT MEANT.

I KNEW FROM THAT DAY ON I WAS

CHANGED.

I WAS STILL A SINNER.

I HAD DONE A LOT OF THINGS BAD

AND STILL IN PRISON.

I KNEW I WAS ON THE PATH OF

GETTING MY LIFE TOGETHER,

COMMITTING MY LIFE TO CHRIST

AND TRYING TO LIVE A LIFE THAT

WAS GOING TO GLORIFY HIM.

THE SIMPLICITY OF IT AMAZED ME.

I DIDN'T GET THIS AS A GET.

I AM READING THIS, I CAN GIVE

GOD ALL OF MY BROKENNESS AND

SIN, IN RETURN HE GIVES ME

GRACE AND PEACE AND EVER

LASTING LIFE. WHEN HE

RETURNED TO THE REGULAR

POPULATION PRISON, MATT FACED

ALL THE ENEMIES HE MADE OVER

THE YEARS.

I AM SAYING TO EVERYONE I AM

A CHRISTIAN.

I AM NOT GOING TO BE THAT

PERSON I WAS.

I RECEIVED A LOT OF THREATS.

GOD WAS FAITHFUL IN PROTECTING

ME

MATT RECONNECTED WITH HIS

FAMILY.

HIS FATHER HAD BEEN WORKING ON

A CAMPAIGN TO GET HIS SON

RELEASED.

THEY PUT TOGETHER A CLEMENCY

PACKET TO THE FLORIDA GOVERNOR.

JUST BEFORE HE PASSED AWAY, HE

GRANTED ME CLEMENCY.

HE SHARED HIS STORY AND THAT

IS WHERE HE MET CONNIE.

I WAS SURPRISED

HOW GENUINE HE WAS.

I HAD A PRECONCEIVED NOTION

EX-CONVICTS WERE THUGS, THEY

ARE LIKE YO ADRIAN.

MATT AND CONNIE MARRY AND

NOW HAVE FOUR CHILDREN.

NONE OF US DESERVE WHAT

GOD'S GRACE IS FOR US.

WHAT GOD CONTINUES TO DO IS

AMAZING.

ALMOST TOO SIMPLE.

I AM READING THESE QUOTES FROM

JESUS YOU BELIEVE IN ME.

YOU CONFESS MY NAME YOU WILL

HAVE EVER LASTING LIFE.

IT IS SO SIMPLE A STATEMENT YET

SO POWERFUL.

ONE THING YOU CAN KNOW ABOUT

GOD IS THAT HE LOVES TO TAKE

OUR MESS AND TURN IT INTO OUR

MESSAGE.

YOU MAY NOT HAVE A LIFE THAT

HAS BEEN AS BROKEN AT MATT'S.

WE ALL FACE DISCOURAGEMENT,

FAILURE.

GOD HAS AN AMAZING SUPER

NATURAL MIRACULOUS ALT TO TAKE

OUR PAIN AND OUR MESS AND TURN

IT INTO SOMETHING AMAZING.

ONLY THING WE HAVE TO DO IS SUR

RUNDER TO HIM.

YOU KNOW WHAT?

THAT TAKES AN ACT OF YOUR WILL.

IF YOU ARE LIKE MATT AND TRYING

TO HOLD ON TO BEING THE TOUGH

GUY AND I'LL DO THIS AND THAT

AND ENDING UP MAKING A WAY

BIGGER MESS, YOU ARE NOT QUITE

READY TO YIELD TO GOD.

FOR ANYONE OUT THERE THAT SAYS

I AM AT THE END.

I HAVE MADE SUCH A LARGE

DISASTER OF WHAT GOD GAVE ME IN

THIS LIFE.

THIS IS NOT GOOD.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS SAY A

SIMPLE PRAYER.

GIVE IT OVER TO HIM.

TELL GOD I RELINQUISH MY WILL.

I GIVE YOU EVERYTHING I HAVE.

I GIVE YOU MY SIN AND FAILURE

AND ALL OF THE DEGRADATION THAT

I HAVE BEEN THROUGH.

I GIVE IT TO YOU.

I ASK YOU, FATHER, THAT YOU

WOULD TAKE IT AND MAKE MY LIFE

BRAND NEW.

IT SAYS HE WILL MAKE YOU INTO A

NEW CREATION.

YOU'LL NO LONGER BE WHO YOU

ONCE WERE.

YOU'LL BECOME A NEW PERSON IN

HIM. AMEN.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO THAT?

WOULD YOU LIKE TO DO BUSINESS

WITH GOD?

YOU HAVE BEEN WAITING A WHOLE

SHOW JUST FOR THIS MOMENT.

LIKE MATT YOU MIGHT BE IN

SOLITARY CONFINEMENT. CALL THE N

THE SCREEN 855-759-0700.

ASK FOR GUIDANCE, KEYS TO

POWERFUL LIVING.

LET'S DO BUSINESS WITH GOD.

OPEN UP YOUR HANDS AND YOUR

HEART MORE IMPORTANTLY, JESUS I

COME TO YOU NOW BY FAITH.

I BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE THE SON

OF THE LIVING GOD.

WOULD YOU COME INTO MY HEART

AND MAKE ME THE PERSON YOU WANT

ME TO BE?

I'LL GO WHERE YOU WANT ME TO

GO, BE WHAT YOU WANT ME TO BE.

STARTING TODAY, I GIVE YOU MY

PERSONAL INTERVENTION IN JESUS

NAME.

AMEN.

IT IS THAT SIMPLE -- THERE IS A

NEWNESS, YOU CAN BANK ON THIS,

THIS IS REAL, IT IS THE

MIRACULOUS WORK OF GOD.

EVERY ONE OF US HAS FACED THAT

FAILURE.

IT IS NOT JUST YOU IT IS

EVERY ONE OF US THAT HAS FACED

THAT.

GOD TAKES ALL OF OUR LIVES AND

MAKES SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL OUT

OF IT.

I PRAY YOUR LIFE IS

MAGNIFICENTLY DIFFERENT.

HE WITHOUT SIN CASTS THE

FIRST STONE.

WE LOOK FORWARD TO BEING WITH

YOU ALL AGAIN SOON.

UNTIL NEXT TIME I AM

LAURA-LYNN TYLER THOMPSON.

I AM BRIAN.

HAVE A GREAT DAY, CANADA.

GOD BLESS.
