IT'S A COMMON PROBLEM THAT

WHEN WE BELIEVE A LIE ABOUT

OUR GOD THEN A PIECE OF OUR

HEART CAN SHUT DOWN.

LIFE CHANGING DISAPPOINTMENT ON

TODAY'S "700 CLUB INTERACTIVE".

ON "700 CLUB INTERACTIVE" WE

USE TECHNOLOGY TO PRAY FOR EACH

OTHER, EXPLORE TOPICS THAT

MATTER TO YOU. WATCH WHAT GOD

IS

DOING IN THE WORLD TODAY.

WELL GOOD MORNING AND

WELCOME

TO THE SHOW. BOUNCING BACK FOR

SOME OF LIFE'S MOST DIFFICULT

TIMES IS A CHALLENGE FROM THE

DEATH OF A LOVED ONE TO LOSING

A

JOB, HOLDING ON TO FAITH CAN

SEEM IMPOSSIBLE. HOWEVER

TODAY'S GUEST SAYS THERE IS

HOPE

AND DEN NICE HILLIS JONES NO

MATTER WHAT YOU HAVE BEEN

THROUGH THERE IS A A WAY TO

LOVE

AND LAUGH AGAIN. WATCH THIS.

THE FIRST TIME THE SURGEON

TOLD ME YOU HAVE CANCER I

THOUGHT THEY MUST HAVE THE

WRONG

PATIENT.

I WENT THROUGH HURRICANE

KATRINA AND LOST EVERYTHING

THERE AND STARTED A DOWNWARD

SPIRAL.

I AM WITHOUT A HOME AND NOW

I

AM TOLD I AM BAD BY THE SYSTEM

AND MY PROSTITUTION STARTED

THERE.

WE WENT TO JACK IN THE BOX

AND MY DAD WAS ORDERING AND

THERE WAS A GUY AND HIS ORDER

DIDN'T COME WITH SOMETHING AND

HE TOOK IT OUT ON MY DAD. AND

TOLD MY DAD "YOU NEED TO GO

BACK

TO YOUR COUNTRY" AND IT BUILT

UP ANGER IN ME AND THEY THOUGHT

THEY WERE BETTER THAN ME.

I GOT A DISTURBING THE PEACE

CHARGE AND I HAD TWO PREVIOUS

CHARGES. THAT'S WHAT A LOT OF

PEOPLE KNOW ME AS A GIRL FROM

THE WEST SIDE OR WITH A GANG OR

SOMETHING BUT IT'S HARD TO

BLOCK

MYSELF FROM THE IMAGE I USED TO

BE.

I KNOW GOD CAN HEAL LIKE

THAT

AND AT ANY MOMENT GOD COULD

HAVE

HEALED HIM AND HE WOULD HAVE

SAT

UP AND TOOK ALL THE TUBES OUT

AND HE WOULD HAVE WALKED OUT OF

THE HOSPITAL BUT THAT WASN'T

THE

PLAN.

I WENT THROUGH LIKE A HARD

TIME. A LOT OF DEPRESSION, A

LOT OF JUST WONDERING WHY.

I WONDERED WHAT WENT WRONG.

WHAT CAN I DO? HOW CAN I FIX

THIS?

WELL JOINING US NOW IS

DENNIS

HILD RED JONES AND WELCOME TO

THE AFFORDABLE --

THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME IML

WHAT IS IT THAT CAUSES US TO

SHUT DOWN IN OUR INNER MOST

BEING?

YEAH THAT BEAUTIFUL PLACE

THAT GOD CALLED US TO LIVE. I

SAY THAT WE DON'T COME INTO THE

WORLD JADED. WE COME LIKE THAT

LITTLE BOY ON THE SAND PILE AND

SAYS "YOU STINKY GIRL" AND

SEES

LIFE TO BE CONQUERD AND

CLAIMED AND THE LITTLE GIRL

BELIEVING ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE

AND THEN YOU HEAR STORIES LIKE

WE HEARD OR EXPERIENCE BY

EXPERIENCE OUR HEART GETS SHUT

DOWN TO WHAT THE ENEMY SAYS AND

BECOMES OUR TRUTH AND WHETHER

WE'RE DISAPPOINTED OR ANGRY OR

AFRAID OR A HEALTH CRISIS THAT

HAS BEEN THE CATALYST FOR THAT

EMOTION OR WHETHER IT'S SUICIDE

THAT WE HAVE ENCOUNTERED AND

WATCHED DESTROY A FAMILY. IT

DOESN'T MATTER. WHEN WE

BELIEVE

A LIE ABOUT OUR GOD THEN A

PIECE

OF OUR HEART CAN SHUT DOWN.

WELL, WHAT ARE SOME OF THE

SYMPTOMS? BECAUSE I THINK THIS

IS ACTUALLY COMMON IN ADULTS

THAT VARIOUS LIFE EVENTS HAVE

OCCURRED AND YOU MAY NOT

REALIZE

IT BUT YOU SHUT DOWN A PART OF

YOU.

SURE. IT'S THAT PROVERBS

FOUR: TWENTY-THREE ABOVE ALL

ELSE GUARD YOUR HEART AND GOD

TELL US THAT'S WHAT WE'RE TO

PROTECT AND I DESCRIBE IT LIKE

THIS. IF YOU'RE SAYING THOSE

WERE THE BEST YEARS OF MY LIFE

THEN YOU MIGHT HAVE A SHUT DOWN

HEART. IF YOU SPEND MORE TIME

FOCUSED ON YOUR PAST AND PAYING

NO ATTENTION THAT GOD HAS A

BEAUTIFUL FUTURE FOR YOU.

AND LOOK AT YOUR FUTURE AS

HOMELESS.

RIGHT.

AND THE PAST AS THE GOTTEN

YEARS, THE GLORY YEARS.

RIGHT.

THIS WAS THE BEST TIME. YOU

DID THAT.

I DID.

YOU WERE SAYING THAT THE

COLLEGE YEARS WERE THE BEST

YEARS OF YOUR LIFE.

FOR YEARS.

WHY?

BECAUSE I DIDN'T REALIZE

THAT

I WAS SHUT DOWN AND I REALIZE

COMING BACK TO LIFE IS A

JOURNEY. IT'S NOT A

DESTINATION. WE ALWAYS HAVE TO

GUARD OUR HEART AND I GOT

MARRIED YOUNG AT 23 YEARS OLD.

IT WAS A FAIRY TALE AND WE WERE

GOING TO LIVE HAPPILY EVER

AFTER

AND A PREACHER'S KID AND IF YOU

GOT DIVORCE YOU WERE NOT USABLE

FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND I

BELIEVED THAT LIE SO EARLY IN

THAT MARRIAGE AT 25 YEARS OLD I

REALIZED THAT IT WAS A VERY

BROKEN MARRIAGE, AND I HAD

CHOICES AS WE ALL DO IN THIS

SITUATIONS IN OUR LIFE OF WHAT

I

WAS GOING TO DO TO LIVE IN THAT

OR LIVE THROUGH THAT, AND I

DEVELOPED SOME REALLY POOR

SKILLS IN THAT JOURNEY OF JUST

NOT GETTING DIVORCED. THAT'S

WHAT I KNEW. I AM NOT GETTING

DIVORCED AND I BECAME SO SHUT

DOWN TO FEAR THAT EVERY

DECISION

I MADE WAS FEAR MOTIVATEDLET I

WANTED TO BE FEAR IN THE HOME

SO

I WOULDN'T SPEAK MY MIND OR

HEART AND I WANTED EVERYBODY TO

BE PLEASED AND I DIDN'T WANT TO

HURT SO I WAS A PERPETUAL

RESCUER AND ONE OF THE DEEPEST

REGRETS -- I ALWAYS SAY I LIVE

WITH REGRETS. PEOPLE SAY "I

HAVE NO REGRETS. IT GOT ME TO

WHERE I AM" AND GORDON I HAVE

A

LOT OF REGRETS AND THINGS THAT

I

DID DIFFERENTLY AND IN THE HOME

AND LET THE BALLS FALL AND I

REALIZE GOD DOESN'T ALWAYS COME

TO IMMEDIATE RESCUE. LOVE

DOESN'T ALWAYS COME TO

IMMEDIATE

RESCUE.

PLENTY OF BIBLE STORIES THAT

SAY THAT.

YEAH, AND YET WE CAN SHUT

OURSELVES DOWN TO THIS FEAR AND

WE'RE PERPETUALLY RESCUING OUR

CHILDREN OR SPOUSE AND WE DON'T

WANT TO HURT AND WE BELIEVE THE

LIE THAT GOD ISN'T BIG ENOUGH

FOR US AND OUR STORY BUT HE IS.

HE IS BIG ENOUGH SO I SAY QUITE

OFTEN WORDS FROM MY WONDERFUL

COUNSELOR WILL US TO HIM OR

PUSH

US TO HIM AND GOD WEED ME AND

FROM THE FIRST BOOKS AND

SAVANNAH ABOUT A YOUNG GIRL WHO

WAS ALIVE. I BELIEVE GOD WAS

WILLING ME AND I DIDN'T SEE IT

THEN AND NOT UNTIL THE PUSHING

PLACE.

IN YOUR BOOK "CLAIM YOUR

HEART" YOU DESCRIBE A LOT OF

HEART ISSUES, LIKE THE ANGRY

HEART, THE CONTROLLING HEART.

WHEN YOU WERE GOING THROUGH

YOUR

STRUGGLE WHICH ONES DID YOU

SHOW?

EACH ONE.

YEAH.

I WAS ALL OF THEM AT ONE

TIME

OR ANOTHER, AND I STILL

STRUGGLED WITH THEM. I STILL

HAVE TO FIGHT FOR MY HEART

EVERYDAY. SHAME WAS GREAT FOR

ME. I TALK ABOUT THE SHAMED

HEART. I WENT FROM BELIEVING

HALF A CROSS WOULD DO TO THE

FACT THAT I NEEDED 10 CROSSES

TO

REMEDY MY SHAME, AND WHEN GOD

BUSTED UP IN THAT LIFE FOR ME

AND I WAS REMINDED OF THE STORY

OF PETER, AND HE KNEW JESUS SO

WELL AND WALKED WITH HIM

THROUGH

ALL OF HIS STORY AND THERE HE

WAS HAVING DENIED HIM THREE

TIMES AND JESUS COMES UP TO

BUST

UP IN THAT SHAME AND SAY PETER

DO YOU LOVE ME.

NOT JUST ONCE.

THREE TIMES. HOW DETILED IS

GOD.

HOW DID YOU GET BACK TO

WHERE

YOUR HEART IS FULL AGAIN?

WELL, IT'S A JOURNEY. ONE

OF

THE THINGS I LOVE TO SHARE

ABOUT

GOD GORDON IS HE LOVES US IN

OUR

DETAILS. HE DOES. JUST LIKE

PETER. THREE TIMES. PETER.

PETER DENIED HIM THREE TIMES

AND

GOD GAVE HIM THE OPPORTUNITY TO

RESTORE THAT THREE TIMES AND

GOD

LOVED ME SO DETAILEDLY AND ONE

OF THE THINGS HE DID FOR ME I

HAVE A PRECIOUS DOG AND SMALL

DOGS AND CODEPENDENT AND

DEPENDENT AND I HAD THIS DOG

FOR

13 YEARS AND A VALENTINE'S GIFT

AND WHEN I GOT DIVORCED AND I

SAID "LORD PLEASE DON'T TAKE

HIM

UNTIL YOU HAVE A FAMILY FOR ME"

AND I MET A MAN AND I NEVER HAD

CHILDREN IN MY FIRST MARRIAGE

AND I MET A MAN WITH FIVE AND I

BECAME THE BONUS MOM AND FROM

ZERO TO FIVE AND TWO WEEKS

AFTER

MY MARRIAGE MY MAGGIE WENT HOME

TO BE WITH THE LORD AND WHEN

YOU

SEE GOD IN THE DETAILS OF YOUR

STORY THEN YOU SEE HIM OVER AND

OVER AND OVER AGAIN, AND HE

LOVED ME BACK TO LIFE AND EVERY

TIME I CHOSE TO BELIEVE WHAT

WAS

TRUE -- BECAUSE WE HAVE TO

RECOGNIZE THE LIE WE BELIEVE.

WE HAVE TO REPENT OF THE FACT

THAT WE HAVE ALLOWED THE ENEMY

TO STEAL OUR HEART AND THEN WE

HAVE TO KNOW WHAT THE TRUTH IS,

AND THE ONLY THING THAT SETS US

FREE IS THE TRUTH OF GOD'S WORD.

AMEN. DENISE THANKS FOR

BEING WITH US. IF YOU WOULD

LIKE TO READ MORE ABOUT THIS

HER

BOOK IS AVAILABLE, RECLAIMING

YOUR HEART. IT'S AVAILABLE

WHEREVER BOOKS ARE SOLD AND IF

YOU' ARE STRUGGLING

JUST CALL US 1-888-777-1999.

JUST AHEAD A YOUNG COUPLE

LEARNS

THE KEY TO LOVE AND MARRIAGE

RIGHT AFTER THIS

.

MATT AND CASEY

HAD A LOT IN COMMON. THEY MADE

A LOT OF MONEY AND LIKED TO

SPEND IT.

THEY DIDN'T WORRY ABOUT THE

MONEY. THEY HAD TWO INCOMES

AND

NO CHILDREN AND NO BUDGET.

WE DIDN'T HANDLE THE MONEY

CORRECTLY. WE HAD MONEY COMING

IN AND NO WRITTEN BUDGET TO

TELL

IT WHERE TO GO.

AND THEY STARTED HAVING

CHILDREN AND SHE STAYED HOME

AND

THEY STRUGGLED FINANCIALLY.

ALL THE MONEY COMING IN WAS

GOING OUT TO PAY BILLS AND

EXPENSES AND TO PAY OFF THE

DEBTS THAT WE OWED SO IT GOT TO

A POINT IT BECAME HARDER AND

HARDER TO GET BY.

WHEN THEY DIDN'T HAVE ENOUGH

MONEY THEY WOULD RELY ON THEIR

CREDIT CARDS AND THE DEBT GREW

QUICKLY.

I WOULD SAY IT WAS AT ITS

WORSE ABOUT $30,000 SO ENOUGH

TO

MAKE US FEEL LIKE WE WERE

SINKING.

MATT WORKED AS AN RN AT A

LOCAL HOSPITAL AND CASEY STAYED

HOME WITH THE KIDS. AS THE

DEBT

GREW SO DID THE FRICTION IN THE

HOME.

I SAID YOU DON'T MAKE

ENOUGH.

YOUR CHECKS ARE NOT BIG ENOUGH.

THAT THE LITERAL SENTENCE.

I AM SURE WE ARGUED AND A LOT

OVER MONEY AND ABOUT WHAT WE

CAN

WE AFFORD TO SPEND AND WHAT

SHOULD WE BE BUYING AND NOT BE

BUYING, SO IT BECAME A BIGGER

AND BIGGER STRAIN.

BECAUSE WE WERE BOTH FEELING

FRUSTRATED AND LIKE WE COULDN'T

GET AHEAD AND IT'S NOT A GOOD

FEELING.

I JUST FINALLY GOT TO THE

POINT WE NEED TO TAKE SOME

DRASTIC MEASURES AND WE'VE GOT

TO DO SOMETHING.

MATT AND CASEY A AGREED TO

DO

TWO THINGS. THEY START THE

TIGHTING AND MADE A BUDGET.

I GREW UP IN A CHRISTIAN

HOME. I KNEW ABOUT TITHING AND

I KNEW WE SHOULD BE DOING IT

BUT

WE WERE GIVING GOD WHAT WAS

LEFT

OVER.

I THINK WE GOT ON THE SAME

PAGE SPIRITUALLY AND REALIZED

WE

REALLY NEED TO COMMIT THIS PART

OF OUR LIVE TO GOD AND LIVE IT

OUT IN A WAY THAT WOULD BE

PLEASING TO HIM AND HONORING TO

HIM.

THEY STUCK TO THEIR BUDGET

USING A CASH AND ENVELOPE

SYSTEM.

NOW WHEN MATT GETS PAID 10%

COMES OFF THE TOP OF HIS

PAYCHECK FOR OUR TITHE.

YOU'RE TELLING THE MONEY

WHERE TO GO AND NOT LETTING THE

MONEY DICTATE WHERE TO GO.

WITHIN A FEW WEEKS THEIR

FINANCE DID A BIG TURN.

WE SOLD THE HOUSE AND PAID

OFF DEBT AND MATT WAS GETTING A

NEW JOB AND MAKING 25% MORE

THAN

WHAT HE HAD BEEN AND WITHIN A

PERIOD OF ANOTHER NINE MONTHS

WE

PAID OFF EVERYTHING.

NOW SHE COULD STAY HOME WITH

THE KIDS WITHOUT STRESSING

ABOUT

IT. THE LOCAL NEWSPAPER DID A

FEATURE STORY ABOUT THEIR

SUCCESS.

I THINK WHAT IT COME DOWN TO

IS WHAT WE ARE TRUSTING IN?

MANY OF US INCLUDING OURSELVES

TRUSTED IN MONEY INSTEAD OF GOD.

TODAY THEY HAVE SIX CHILDREN

AND THEY'RE ADOPTING TWO MORE

KIDS THIS YEAR.

WE'RE AT A POINT NOW WE

REALLY REALIZE THAT HE'S THE

ONE

WE HAVE TO TRUST IN FOR

EVERYTHING.

ONE OF THE FAVORITE VERSES

IS

MALACHI "DO NOT ROB ME OF THE

TITHES AND OFFERINGS AND TEST

HIM AND SEE IF HE GIVES YOU

BACK

MORE THAN YOU TAKE IN" AND I

BELIEVE THAT TO BE TRUE.

YOU CAN TEST HIM WITH YOUR

TITHES AND OFFERINGS AND IF YOU

WOULD LIKE TO DO THAT JUST GIVE

US A CALL 1-888-777-1999 AND

JUST SAY " I WANT TO JOIN THE

700 CLUB". WHEN YOU JOIN "THE

WELL,

STILL AHEAD A DOC WITH STEADY

HANDS AND A WANDERING EYE.

I ENJOYED BEING PURSUED. I

ENJOYED THE FEEDING THEY WAS

GETTING FROM MY EGO AND PRIDE.

HOW THIS COUPLE SAVED A

MARRIAGE ON LIFE SUPPORT LATER

ON "700 CLUB INTERACTIVE"

.

BEING A DOCTOR IS ONE OF THE

MOST STRESSFUL JOBS IN

AMERICA. DR. MATT

MORON KNEW THIS.

YOU BELIEVE YOU HAVE ALL THE

ANSWERS AND PRIDE CREEPS IN AND

TAKING CARE OF PEOPLE.

THIS DOCTOR WAS DOING HIS

RESIDENCY AT A LOCAL HOSPITAL

AND DEMANDED MOST OF HIS TIME.

IT TAKES A TOLL ON YOUR

FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND YOU'RE

NOT REALLY THERE.

HIS WIFE WAS PREPARED FOR

THE

LONG HOURS HE SPENDS AT THE

HOSPITAL.

THIS WAS PART OF THE JOB

DESCRIPTION BUT THE PARENTING

WAS THE HARD PART.

THEY HAD TWO CHILDREN AND

THE

FOCUS OF THE LIFE AND THEY

SPENT

LITTLE TIME TOGETHER AS A

FAMILY

AND THEY DRIFTED A PART.

WE GOT TO THE PLACE WHEN HE

WAS HOME I WOULD BE IN MY ROOM

DOING MY THING AND HE WAS IN

HIS

ROOM DOING SOMETHING ELSE.

THERE WASN'T FIGHTING BECAUSE

THERE WAS NO COMMUNICATION.

MATT DEVELOPED RELATIONSHIPS

WITH PEOPLE AT THE HOSPITAL AND

IN PARTICULAR ONE WOMAN.

I ENJOYED BEING PURSUED. I

ENJOYED THE FEEDING I WAS

GETTING FOR MY PRIDE AND EGO.

THEY BOTH GREW UP IN THE

CHURCH BUT HE ADMITTED THE

BUSIER HE GOT THE LESS TIME HE

SPENT WITH GOD.

IT GOT MORE ENTICING LIKE

LUST.

THEY FLIRTED FOR MONTHS

BEFORE IT TURNED PHYSICAL.

I DISTINCTLY REMEMBER THE

MOMENT I WAS WALKING AWAY

THINKING HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?

HOW IN THE WORLD DID I GET TO

THIS POINT? IT WAS VERY

NAZIATING AND DISGUSTING

FEELING

AND YOU THINK THAT WOULD BE

ENOUGH TO STOP.

BUT IT WASN'T ENOUGH TO MAKE

HIM STOP THE RELATIONSHIP.

I CAN HONESTLY SAY DURING

THAT

TIME THAT I LOVED MY WIFE. I

REMEMBER DISTINCTLY AND MOMENTS

WHERE I WAS BEING UNFAITHFUL

THINKING AT THAT MOMENT THIS IS

NOT RIGHT. I SHOULD NOT BE

DOING THIS.

AFTER

NINE MONTHS HE COULDN'T TAKE

THE

GUILT ANYMORE.

AND I WAS FIGHTING IT AND

THE

LORD WAS STANDING THERE WITH

HIS

OPEN ARMS AND I PRAYED IF YOU

WANT ME TO SAY ANYTHING TO

SARAH

ABOUT THIS PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

MAKE IT HAPPEN BEFORE WE GO TO

BED.

THAT NIGHT THEY WATCH A

MOVIE

AND WENT TO BED.

I CAME OUT AND IS THERE

ANYTHING GOING ON WITH THIS

PERSON AND TOOK HIM A WHILE TO

ANSWER AND THAT'S WHEN HE CAME

OUT AND TOLD ME EVERYTHING THAT

HAD WENT ON.

THEY WERE UP ALL NIGHT AS

MATT CONFESSED HIS

UNFAITHFULNESS TO SARAH.

EVERYTHING IN HER LIFE WAS

CRASHING DOWN. IT WAS A MIX OF

ANGER, HURT. IT WAS ACTUALLY A

MIX OF -- THERE WAS DEFINITELY

SOME LOVE IN THERE.

I DID A LOT OF TALKING,

CRYING. HE KNEW HE HAD HURT

ME.

HE KNEW THEY WAS BROKEN BECAUSE

OF THIS, AND HE KNEW THAT HIS

ACTIONS HAD BEEN THE CAUSE OF

ALL OF THAT.

MATT'S BROKEN

NESS ENCOURAGED SARA THEY

COULD REBUILD THE FAMILY.

HE WAS LEAD DOWN A PATH THAT

FOREVER CHANGED US BUT THE

PERSON THAT I MARRIED WAS STILL

THERE AND STILL MY BEST FRIEND

AND I WANTED TO REGAIN THAT.

THE MORANS SPENT MORE TIME

TOGETHER AND WENT FOR CHRISTIAN

COUNSELING.

I THINK UNTIL YOU'RE IN A

SITUATION LIKE THIS BEING

SIMILAR WHERE YOU ARE FACING

WITH THE CHOICE OF I CAN HARBOR

ALL OF THIS ANGER AND GRIEF AND

RAGE AND LET IT DESTROY ME OR I

CAN CHOOSE TO FORGIVE.

I AM STILL AMAZED SHE TRUSTS

ME. TRUST IT'S NOT SOMETHING

THERE OR NOT THERE. IT'S A

PROCESS AND WE'RE CONTINUING ON

THE PROCESS OF BUILDING MORE

AND

MORE TRUST.

MATT AND SARA REALIZED THE

IMPORTANCE OF RECOMMITTING

THEIR

LIVES AND RELATIONSHIP TO

KRIEFTD.

ASK THE LORD I DON'T KNOW

HOW

TO GET OUT OF THIS. I DON'T

KNOW HOW TO DO IT. YOU HAVE TO

DO IT FOR ME AND WHEN I FINALLY

DID IT ALLOWED ME TO STEP OUT

OF

IT AND FULLY AND NOT JUST

TEMPORARILY.

THIS WHOLE EXPERIENCE HAS

GROWN MY FAITH TREMENDOUSLY. I

BELIEVE -- I THINK I BELIEVED

BEFORE BUT I REALLY BELIEVE IN

A

GOD WHO IS IN THE BUSINESS OF

RESTORATION AND HE WANTS TO

RESTORE US. THAT'S HIS HEART

AND THAT'S WHERE HIS HEART IS.

THAT HE KNOWS WE'RE A LOST

PEOPLE. HE KNOWS THAT WE MAKE

MISTAKES BUT HE WANTS TO

REBUILD

THAT AND REBUILD IT WITH HIS

VISION IN MIND.

WE DO HAVE A GOD WHO

BELIEVES

IN RESTORATION. HE ALSO

BELIEVES IN YOU AND HE HAS

FAITH

IN YOU. IT'S ONE THING FOR US

TO SAY WE HAVE FAITH IN GOD BUT

WHEN WE START UNDERSTANDING GOD

HAS FAITH IN US THAT US WE CAN

TURN, YES WE CAN REBUILD, YES

RELATIONSHIPS THAT ARE BROKEN

CAN BE MENDED AGAIN AND

HUSBANDS

AND WIVES CAN COME TOGETHER

EVEN

AFTER BEING UNFAITHFUL. SO

IT'S

AMAZING THING. THE BIBLE SAYS

THAT HE REMAINS FAITHFUL. WHEN

WE'RE UNFAITHFUL HE REMAINS

FAITHFUL. HE CANNOT DENY

HIMSELF AND HE IS CONSTANTLY

PRAYING FOR YOU AND PRAYING FOR

RECONCILIATION AND PRAYING FOR

FORGIVENESS TO FLOW AND PRAYING

AND INTERCEDING ON YOUR BEHALF,

AND ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS

RESPOND

TO IT AND AMEN IT AND SAY YES

GOD I WILL GO ALONG WITH YOUR

PLAN. I WILL DO IT YOUR WAY

THIS TIME. NOT MY WAY BUT YOUR

WAY. IF YOU NEED HELP IN YOUR

MARRIAGE, IF YOU NEED SOMEONE

TO

PRAY WITH YOU. JUST SAY I NEED

TO START OVER AGAIN. I NEED

RESTORATION. ALL YOU HAVE TO

DO

IS CALL US. THE NUMBER IS TOLL

FREE. 1-888-777-1999 AND WHEN

YOU START REALIZING THERE'S NO

BART OF BROKENNESS THAT GOD

CAN'T FIX HE IS ABLE, EVEN IN

THE NATURAL WHEN IT SEEMS

IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD ALL THINGS

ARE POSSIBLE AND ALL IT TAKES

IS

FOR YOU TO RECOGNIZE THAT AND

SAY YES TO IT. WELL, THIS IS

"700 CLUB INTERACTIVE" WHERE

YOU

CAN POST THE PRAYER REQUEST ON

OUR FACEBOOK PAGE OR TWEET US

OR

TO OUR WEBSITE. LET'S GO SEE

WHAT IS HAPPENING ONLINE.

WE HAVE DORIS AND SHE SAYS

"I

WAS ASKED TO SPEAK AT A

CHRISTIAN CONFERENCE BUT THEY

CANCELED THE APPEARANCE AND I

AM

LEFT WITH A FEELING OF

INADEQUACY. PLEASE PRAY FOR ME.

I WILL PRAY BUT UNDERSTAND

WHERE PAUL SAYS STUDY TO SHOW

YOURSELF APPROVED OF GOD. WHEN

YOU'RE LOOKING FOR APPROVAL OF

OTHER PEOPLE AND THAT COULD BE

EVEN CLOSE PEOPLE LIKE RIGHT IN

YOUR FAMILY. IF YOU'RE LOOKING

FOR APPROVAL FROM THEM YOU HAVE

THE WRONG PLACE BECAUSE THEY

WILL LET YOU DOWN. WILL PEOPLE

DISAPPOINT YOU? WELL PEOPLE

HURT YOU? YES. WILL

CONFERENCES CANCEL ON YOU?

YES.

IF YOU SHOW YOURSELF STUDY WITH

GOD THERE ARE NO ROOM FOR

FEELINGS OF INADEQUACY. HE

MADE

YOU. HE LOVES YOU. HE HAS

GOOD

WORKS HE CREATED SPECIFICALLY

FOR YOU. KNOWING YOUR MAKEUP,

ALL ABOUT YOU, YOUR SKILL SET,

WHAT YOU'RE GOOD AT HE'S ABLE

SO

PUT THE TRUST THERE DON'T LOOK

AT THE DISAPPOINTMENT OF THE

CANCELLATION. OKAY GOD WHAT

NOW? WHAT IS NEXT FOR ME?

LET'S GO FOR ANOTHER ONE?

CHRIS WRITES. IS THERE

SOMETHING IN MY MAKEUP OR PAST

THAT SETS ME UP FOR CONSTANT

DISAPPOINTMENT?

CHRIS, I WOULD SAY PROBABLY

BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT BORN

DISAPPOINTED SO SOMETHING

HAPPENED ALONG THE WAY TO GET

YOU TO THAT POINT. I WOULD SAY

NO DEFINITELY IN YOUR MAKEUP

AND

REALIZE YOU'RE WONDERFULLY

MADE.

YOU'RE MADE TO BE AN OVERCOMER.

THAT'S WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS

ABOUT

YOU. THE

BIBLE SAYS YOU'RE A CONQUEROR

AND BELIEVE THAT. DO WE ALL

HAVE DISAPPOINTMENTS AND

RESECRETS AND THE WOULD HAVE,

SHOULD HAVE KIND OF THING? YES

BUT LOOK TO THE FUTURE THAT GOD

HAS FOR AND YOU START PRAYING.

LORD, WHERE IS THE OPEN DOOR

FOR

ME? WHERE CAN I SHOW MYSELF

STRONG FOR YOUR GLORY

AND NOT MINE AND THAT'S ALL THE

TIME WE HAVE. WE LEAVE YOU

WITH

THIS. GOD YOUR LORD IN YOUR

MIDST THE MIGHTY ONE WILL SAVE

AND REJOICE OVER YOU WITH

GLADNESS AND QUIET OVER WITH
