TOUGHEST PLAYERS ON THE FIELD.

MARRIAGE.

WE CAN GET THROUGH THIS

TODAY ON THE 700 CLUB.

WELCOME, FOLKS, TO THIS

EDITION OF THE 700 CLUB, IT IS

A WEEKEND OF PLAYOFF ACTION,

WILD CARD GAMES IN THE NFL AND

ALSO WE HAVE THE WRAP-UP OF THE

BOWL GAME AND IS ONE MORE

COMING AND THEN IT'S OVER.

ER

I'M IN MOURNING.

OH, SOMEBODY LOST, IT WAS

COLD.

DON'T RUB IT IN LIKE THAT,

THAT'S UNKIND OF YOU.

I WAS SAYING, IT'S A SCRAP

PI WONDERFUL GROUP OF PLAYERS.

AND THEY GAVE THEM A RUN FOR

THEIR MONEY.

WHO EVER HEARD OF THEM

PLAYING IN THAT WEATHER IN YOUR

SHIRT SLEEVES.

ER

SEVERAL OF THEM.

AND YOU HIT THE FROZEN

GROUND.

YOU CAN'T FEEL IT BY THEN.

THEY MADE IT OUT AND THE

49ERS PREVAILED.

THE COACH IS A CHRISTIAN, HE'S

A NICE GUY, SO MY SOLICITATIONS

OF THE STALER PEOPLE, THE GREEN

BAY, THEY ARE TOUGH FANS, THEY

FILL THOSE STANDS IN THAT

WEATHER.

SNOW OR HAIL, IT DOESN'T

MATTER, IT'S ABOUT GREEN BAY

FANS.

IN CASE YOU HAVEN'T HEARD,

YOU CAN FORGET ABOUT GLOBAL

WARMING, THERE'S A SHIP DOWN IN

THE ANTARCTIC, THEY WERE DOWN

TO STUDY GLOBAL WARMING AND

THEY GOT FROZEN AND THE RESCUE

SHIP GOT FROZEN AND THE NEXT

SHIP GOT FROZEN, WE SENT A

COAST GUARD CUTTER TO GET THEM

OUT OF THERE.

IN AMERICA, IT'S SO COLD IN

SOME PLACES, IT'S DANGEROUS TO

YOUR HEALTH.

WIND CHILLS AS LOW AS 65

DEGREES BELOW 0, THINK OF THAT.

FORECASTERS SAY THOSE WIND

CHILLS WILL LIST FROM MONTANA

TO ALABAMA AND THEY'RE COMING

AFTER A MAJOR SNOWSTORM,

CAITLIN BUDGETERBACKER BERG HAS

THE STORY.

IT'S THE COLDEST AIR IN

NEARLY TWO DECADES AND IT'S TO

PLUNGE TO SUB 0 LOWS.

IT WAS NICE AND BALMY.

THE ARCTIC BLAST IS FRIGID

DENSE AIR KNOWN AS THE POLAR

VORTEX AND RUMINATING PRESSURES

ARE PUTTING HALF OF THE U.S. IN

A DEEP FREEZE.

IN NORTH DAKOTA, 24 BELOW 0,

AND NEGATIVE 15 IN INDIANAPOLIS

AND CHICAGO.

THESE ARE EXTREMELY

DANGEROUS CONDITIONS AND WE

STRONGLY URGE PEOPLE TO HEED

THE WARNINGS AND TAKE THE

NECESSARILY PRECAUTIONS TO STAY

STAIF.

IF YOU CAN STAY INDOORS, DO SO.

AND IF TEMPERATURES FROM 15

TO 30 BELOW AREN'T BAD, THE

WIND CHILL WILL MAKE IT FEEL

LIKE 50 TO 60 BELOW, FROSTBITE

CAN OCCUR IN ONLY 5 MINUTES,

THEY'RE CAUSING ANOTHER ROUND

OF TRAVEL PROBLEMS, IN NEW

YORK, THIS PLANE FLED OFF THE

RUNWAY AND IN CHICAGO, MORE

THAN 1200 FLIGHTS FOR CANCELLED.

I WANT TO GO HOME, GET BACK

SETTLED IN, WE'VE BEEN COOPED

OFF FOR SEVERAL DAYS.

ER

SCHOOL HAS BEEN CALLED OFF

FOR THE ENTIRE STATE OF

MINNESOTA, AS WELL AS

WISCONSIN, ILLINOIS AND IOWA,

ABSENCES WOULD BE EXCUSED.

AUTHORITIES WARNED PEOPLE TO

STAY INDOORS WHEN POSSIBLE AND

TO CHECK ON ELDERLY AND

DISABLED RELATIVES AND

NEIGHBORS.

CAITLIN BERG, CBN NEWS.

TERRY, FOR SOME REASON, I'VE

BEEN OUT IN THAT STUFF, IT'S

NOT ALL THAT COLD.

THAT'S THE DANGER OF IT

BECAUSE WHEN IT'S SO COLD, YOU

DON'T FEEL IT.

IT WAS MINUS 20 IN DALUTH,

YEAH, IT WAS WARM, I WAS IN

BEMIJI, THEY HAD A SNOWSTORM

AND I WAS IN SPIRIT LAKE IOWA,

IT WAS A WIND CHILL OF MINUS

60, THOSE PEOPLE GET USED TO

THAT STUFF.

WELL, THEY DRESS FOR IT AND

THEY PLAY IN IT, YOU KNOW.

I USED TO GO OUT, I MEAN, I

WAS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, I HAD A

BLAZER, I HAD A WRAP AROUND.

WAS THIS WHEN YOU WERE

CAMPAIGNING?

YEAH, AND IT WAS 20 BELOW 0

OR 10 BELOW 0, I JUST --

WHY DID YOU DO THAT?

WELL, I HAD TO SHOW YOU'RE

TOUGH, I DON'T KNOW, BUT I

WASN'T COLD.

YOU DON'T FEEL IT THOUGH,

IT'S DRY, EVEN IN PLACES THAT

HAVE HUMIDITY, THERE'S DRYNESS

IN THE AIR.

I HAVE A LITTLE SIGN IN MY

HOUSE THAT SAYS I WASN'T BORN

IN THE SOUTH BUT I GOT HERE AS

FAST AS I COULD.

.

ER WELL, WE SOUTHERNERS WELCOME

YOU AND IT'S BEEN NICE AND WARM

BUT TO GET TO 13.

IT IS, IT'S GOING DROP

DRASTICALLY.

I LIKE TO RISE, AND I HAVE A

RING AND THE WAY WE TEST IT,

YOU TAKE A SCREWDRIVER AND PUSH

IT INTO THE SOIL AND IF IT GOES

DOWN ABOUT AN INCH OR SO AND

THEN IT'S HARD AND YOU CAN'T

RIDE, SO IT'S GOING -- IT'S

BEEN IN THE 60'S, SO IT WILL BE

WARM ENOUGH TO RIDE AND THEN

IT'S GOING TO FREEZE SOLID SO

MY POOR HORSE, CARROTS.

WELT, IF YOU THINK THE COLD

WEATHER IS BAD, THERE'S ANOTHER

THREAT OF A NATURAL DISASTER

THAT'S WORSE, WE TOLD YOU ABOUT

IT ABOUT THREE YEARS AGO AND

JOHN JESSUP THAT THAT STORY

FROM WASHINGTON.

VOLCANOES COULD BE A BIGGER

THREAT AND ONE OF THOSE

VOLCANOES IS HERE IN THE UNITED

STATES, THE LARGEST VOLCANO IS

LOCATED IN YELLOW STONE

MEASURING 53 MILES WIDE AND

IT'S PRODUCED ONE OF THE MOST

MONSTROUS ERUPTIONS, IF IT

SHOULD ERUPT TODAY, ANYONE

WITHIN DOZENS OF MILES WOULD BE

ANNIHILATED AND PUSH

TEMPERATURES DOWN FROM 9 TO 15

DEGREES FOR YEARS, THAT'S FROM

THE GEOLOGICAL SOCIETY FROM

LONDON, SUCH EVENTS COULD RUIN

AGRICULTURE, MASS STARVATION,

THE EFFECTS COULD BE SEVERE TO

THREATEN THE FABRIC OF

CIVILIZATION, IT COULD LEAD TO

AS MUCH AS A BILLION

CASUALTIES, THOSE ARE

STAGGERING STATISTICS.

I USED TO WORK IN YELLOW

STONE AND WE WENT SWIMMING IN

VOLCANO --

REALLY, THE SPRING.

THOSE HOT WATER SPRINGS, BUT

THE WHOLE THING IS ONE GIANT

CALDERA, IT'S PRETTY AND IT'S A

NATIONAL PARK.

THERE'S NO WAY YOU COULD

PREPARE FOR THAT.

ER

THERE'S GAS AND A FILLING

STATION OUT THERE.

IN YOUR SHIRT SLEEVES NO

DOUBT.

BUT IT WAS FREEZING AT NIGHT.

IT WAS BUELL, BUT YOU DON'T

REALIZE, GEYSER IS USED UP,

WHY, BECAUSE IT'S IN THE MIDDLE

OF A VALUE CANE KNOW, YELLOW

STONE LAKE, THEY WERE VOLCANIC

POOLS, YOU WERE SWIMMING IN IT

IN THE FREEZING COLD.

FORTUNATELY, I THINK WE HAVE

THE KIND OF, I DON'T KNOW WHAT

YOU WOULD CALL IT, LIKE

EQUIPMENT OR WHATEVER TO GAUGE

SOME OF THAT, TO GIVE A WARNING

IF SOMETHING LIKE THAT WOULD

HAPPEN BUT HOW WOULD YOU

PREPARE FOR IT?

WELL, YOU CAN'T, IF THAT

THING BLOWS, IT WILL HAVE A

CLOUD OVER THE ENTIRE UNITED

STATES, IT WILL DESTROY

AMERICA, SO YOU PRAY, BUT THAT

WAS -- TEDDY ROOSEVELT MADE THE

NATIONAL PARK BUT IT WAS ONE

BEAUTIFUL PLACE AND IT WAS A

BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO WORK SO I

SPENT A MONTH OF ALL OF MY

JOURNEYS IN YELLOW STONE PARK,

JOHN?

PAT, THE NATIONAL SECURITY

AGENCY CAN KEEP COLLECTING

EVERYONE'S AMERICAN TELEPHONE

RECORDS EVERY DAY, THAT

OVERSEES SOME OF THE NSA'S

ACTIVITIES, THE APPROVAL IS THE

FIRST SINCE TWO CONFLICTING

COURT DECISIONS OF WHETHER THE

PROGRAM IS CONSTITUTIONAL,

SENATOR RAM PAUL IS SUING THEM,

HE WANTS IT TO STOP SNOOPING ON

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND SAYS

THE AGENCY'S AUTHORITY IS TOO

BROAD.

A SINGLE WARRANT SHOULD NOT

APPLY TO EVERYONE WHO HAS A

CELL PHONE IN AMERICA, SO THE

CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT WITH

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

PARTICIPANTS BEATS HOME AND

BRING TOS THE FOREFRONT THE

IDEA THAT THIS IS A GENERALIZED

WARRANT AND IT SHOULD BE

CONSIDERED UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

A PRESIDENTIAL ADVISORY

PANEL SAY THEY SHOULDN'T SEARCH

CELL RECORDS WITHOUT COURT

APPROVALS.

LETTING MEMBERS OF CONGRESS

AND THEIR STAFF GET SUBSIDIES

TO PAY FOR OBAMA CARE HEALTH

PLANS, HE SAYS THAT WASN'T PART

OF THE ORIGINAL BILLS, THEY'RE

ASKING THE SUPREME COURT TO

LIFT THE ORDER OF THE LAWS

CONCEPTIVE MANDATE TO ALLOW

DRUGS THAT INDUCE ABORTION,

THEY ISSUED THAT SURPRISE

DECISION TEMPORARILY STOPPING

THE GOVERNMENT TEMPORARILY

FORCING THE MANDATE OF THE

NUNS, THE WHITE HOUSE SAYS IT'S

OFFERED EXEMPTIONS AND

ACCOMMODATIONS TO CHURCHES AND

SOME NON-PROFIT RELIGIOUS

GROUPS BY ALLOWING SOME

ORGANIZATIONS PAY FOR BIRTH

CONTROL.

THE RULES THAT ARE SET UP,

THAT WILL DIRECT OTHER TOS PAY

FOR THOSE DRUG AND IS THE

SISTERS CAN'T BE PART OF IT, IF

THE FORM DOESN'T MATTER, THE

GOVERNMENT SHOULDN'T MAKE THE

SISTERS SIGN.

THE

WHY WOULD ABUSE IN AMERICA

IS MUCH MORE WIDESPREAD THAN

REALIZED AND SOMETIMES SEXUAL

PREDATORS ARE FOUND IN THE

CHURCH, THEY HELP SURVIVORS

PROTECT CHILDREN.

THE CHURCH SHOULD BE THE

LAST PLACE THAT PARENTS WORRY

ABOUT TAKING THEIR CHILDREN,

BUT INSTEAD OF PROVIDING A SAFE

PLACE FOR KIDS, CHILD SEXUAL

ABUSE EXPERTS SAY CHURCH CAN BE

DANGEROUS BY PROVIDING A

WELCOMING ENVIRONMENT FOR

PREDATORS.

WE SO FOCUSED ON ISSUES SUCH

AS FORGIVENESS AND GRACE,

OFFENDERS ARE DRAWN TO THOSE

PLACES.

FORMER CHILD ABUSE

PROSECUTOR SAYS MANY CHURCHES

UNINTENTIONALLY ATTRACT THOSE

WHO WANT TO PREY ON CHILDREN.

CHURCHES ARE ALWAYS IN NEED

OF VOLUNTEERS, I'VE NEVER BEEN

TO A CHURCH THAT WAS NEVER IN

NEED OF A VOLUNTEER AND

CHURCHES ARE HAVE BEEN

ACCEPTING.

IT STANDS FOR GODLY RESPONSE

TO ABUSE IN THE CHRISTIAN

ENVIRONMENT, IN RECENT YEARS,

HE'S SEEN PROGRESS AS BELIEVERS

TALK MORE OPENLY ABOUT THE

PROBLEM, BUT WHAT HE WOULD LIKE

TO SEE NOW, MORE DENOMINATIONS

OF LOCAL CHURCHES DEVELOPING

POLICIES THAT MINISTER TO

SURVIVORS AND PROTECT KIDS.

YOU HAVE TO KNOW ABOUT HOW

OFFENDERS ACT SO YOU CAN STAY

TWO STEPS AHEAD OF THEM.

IT'S LEARNING HOW TO RESPOND

TO REPORTS OF ABUSE, THAT'S

BECAUSE ABUSERS HAVE OFTEN BEEN

WELL LIKED AND TRUSTED LEADERS.

WHEN THE 13 OR 14 YEAR-OLD

KID IN THE YOUTH GROUP WHO'S

CAUSED A LOT OF TROUBLE IN THE

YOUTH GROUP, WHO COMES FROM A

BROKEN HOME, WHO MAY HAVE HAD

SOME TROUBLE WITH THE LAW, WHEN

THAT 14, 15 YEAR OLD COMES

FORWARD AND SAYS THIS

PARTICULAR PERSON IN THE CHURCH

THAT SEXUALLY ABUSED ME AND

THAT PARTICULAR PERSON HAPPENS

TO BE AN ELDER OR A LEADER OR A

WELL RESPECTED PERSON IN THE

CHURCH, HOW ARE WE GOING TO

RESPOND TO THAT BECAUSE THAT'S

WHERE I SEE THE BREAKDOWN.

HE CALLS ON CHURCHES TO

QUICKLY TAKE SEXUAL ABUSE

REPORTS TO THE AUTHORITIES AND

BE PREPARED TO MINISTER TO

VICTIMS, OFFENDERS AND THEIR

FAMILIES.

THE SHEDDING OF LIGHT ON

DARKNESS HE SAY ISS THE BEST

WAY FOR THE CHURCH TO MOVE

FORWARD AND DEMONSTRATE

INTEGRITY IN A FALLEN WORLD.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

ONE THIRD OF ADULTS AROUND

THE WORLD ARE EITHER OBESE OR

OVERWEIGHT, THAT'S NEARLY A

BILLION AND A HALF PEOPLE, A

REPORT FROM A BRITISH THINK

BACK SAYS IT HAS BEEN RISING

RAPIDLY IN THE DEVELOPING

WORLD, IT'S QUADRUPLED SINCE

1980, IT SAYS THE TWO MAIN

REASONS ARE DIETS WITH MORE

SUGAR AND FAT ALONG WITH

SEDENTARY LIFESTYLES, THERE

WILL BE DISEASES AMONG

DIABETES, AND HEART ATTACKS.

WHAT DO YOU THINK SHOULD BE

ADDRESSED TO ABOLISH OBESITY IN

ABOLISH MCDONALD, IT'S THE

SPREAD OF THE FAST FOOD

INDUSTRY, WHETHER --

AND SUGAR, DON'T YOU THINK?

YES, BUT WE COOK THAT WAY,

YOU HAVE TRANSFATS AND YOU HAVE

ALL THESE NOXIOUS THING THAT IS

ARE PUT INTO SUBSTANCES AND

EVEN THE DIET STUFF, HIGH

FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP HAS BEEN

WITHIN OF THE LEADING CAUSES OF

OBESITY IN AMERICA BUT THEY'RE

USING IT NOW ALL OVER THE WORLD

SO IF YOU GO INTO A MCDONALDS,

YOU FIND A BIG MCDONALDS STORE

IN BEIJING, THEY'RE GOING TO

GET A SUPERSIZE BIG MAC AND

THEN THEY'RE GOING TO GET A

GREAT BIG THINK OF SUGARY DRINK

AND IT DOESN'T TAKE MANY OF

THOSE BEFORE PEOPLE START

GETTING FAT AND IT'S ACROSS THE

GLOBE, A LOT OF THESE IS THE

WIMPY'S AND THE FAST FOOD

CHAINS.

WE'VE NEVER HAD MORE

INFORMATION ABOUT HOW TO EAT

WELL, WHAT'S HEALTHY AND WHAT'S

NOT.

AND IF YOU'RE POOR, YOU

CAN'T AFFORD PROTEIN AND WHAT

YOU EAT IS STARCH, SO YOU COULD

GET BREAD CHEAPLY AND YOU COULD

GET POTATOES CHEAPLY AND YOU

COULD GET OF COURSE OTHER KINDS

OF STARCHY-TYPE VEGETABLES.

ER

PASTAS.

ER

PASTAS ESPECIALLY AND THEY

COME CHEAP AND THEY'RE FILLING

AND MAKE PEOPLE FAT.

COMING UP, HAVE YOU EVER

WONDERED WHY SOME MARRIAGES

SUCCEED AND YET OTHERS FAIL,

WE'LL SHOW YOU WHAT OTHER

COUPLES HAVE IN COMMON.

THAT'S NEXT.

WELL, I THINK I'M QUALIFIED

TO SPEAK ON THIS SUBJECT.

I HAVE FOUR WONDERFUL GROWN

CHILDREN WHO HAVE PRODUCED 14

WONDERFUL GRANDCHILDREN WHO ARE

NOW GETTING MARRIED AND I HAVE

NOW 4 GRANDCHILDREN.

ISN'T THAT WONDERFUL?

IT IS WONDERFULFINGER IT'S

THE WAY IT OUGHT TO BE AND EACH

ONE LOVES THE LORD AND YOU SAY

WHAT'S AN ANSWER TO A HAPPY

MARRIAGE, IT'S LIVING FOR JESUS

CHRIST, BUT CAN YOU REALLY BE

HAPPY IN AMERICA?

WELL, THE ANSWER'S ABSOLUTELY

YES, IT'S NOT AS HARD AS YOU

THINK, THEY MAKE IT OUT TO BE

SO HARD BUT THERE'S LITTLE

PRINCIPLES AND PAUL STRAND IS

GOING TO TELL US, I DON'T KNOW

IF YOU'RE AN EXPERT ON IT OR

NOT BUT YOU'RE GOING TELL US

HOW.

ING

THESE DAYS, MARRIAGE GETS A

BAD WRAP, YOU RARELY SEE OR

HEAR ABOUT ANY COUPLES LIVING

THEIR DREAM FOR A LIFETIME.

IN AMERICAN SUBURBS LIKE

THIS, PEOPLE ARE LEADING QUIET

LIVES BUT MANY ARE NOT

DESPERATE AT ALL AND MANY ARE

LIVING IN HAPPY MARRIAGES,

HERE'S HOW THEY STAY HIGHLY

HAPPY AND MARRIED FOREVER.

ER

THEY HAVE ALREADY WRITTEN

BEST SELLERS LIKE FOR MEN ONLY

AND FOR WOMEN ON THE, THEY HAVE

GATHERED COMPREHENSIVE DATA AND

RESEARCH ABOUT SATISFIED

HUSBANDS AND WIVES, THEY SHARE

A FEW KEY ATTITUDES AND

ASPECTS, SHE PUTS IN IN HIGHLY

HAPPY MARRIAGES, CHOOSING THEY

CARE ABOUT YOU TURNS TO

POSITIVE ATTITUDE.

I KNEW THAT I COULD TRUST

HER, I KNEW SHE HAD MY BEST

INTEREST, I KNEW SHE LOVED ME

AND I WOULD BELIEVE THE BEST.

.

ER THE HAPPIEST COUPLES GO,

THEY COULDN'T SC MEANT IT, THEY

LOVE ME AND LET'S MOVE ON, IT

MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE WHEN

YOU ASSUME THE BEST.

CHANTI'S DIFFERENCE --

THERE'S NO ESCAPE ROUTE FOR ANY

OF THE D WORD, DIVORCE, THEY

DON'T KEEP ACCOUNTS OF WHEN THE

RELATIONSHIP CRUMBLES

IT CREATES A WEDGE AND GOD

HAS DESIGNED IT FOR ME TO BE

COMPLETE INTIMACY AND YOU CAN'T

HAVE THAT IF YOU HAVE HIDDEN

POCKETS, THINGS YOU'RE HOLDING

FROM EACH OTHER

THEY'RE GOING ALL IN FOR

THEIR 27 YEAR UNION.

I BELIEVE WE ARE HAPPIER NOW

THAN WE'VE EVER BEEN.

AND DON'T FORGET THE LITTLE

THING, THANK YOUR HUSBAND, LET

HIM APPRECIATE HIS EFFORTS.

INGER

SAYING IT TO A GUY, THAT IS

HIS EQUIVALENT TO I LOVE YOU.

MEN FLEXED TO TAKE THEIR

WIVES HAND AND NOT BE AFRAID OF

PUBLIC AFFECTION LIKE PUTTING

HIS HAND AROUND HER

ALL OF THOSE THINGS CONVEY

I'M CHOOSING YOU ALL OVER AGAIN.

AND MEN NEED TO GET OUT OF A

BAD MOOD QUICK

SO, WHEN HE MAKES AN EFFORT

TO PULL HIMSELF OUT OF THE FUN

K AND NOT BE GRUMPY, THIS IS

NOT GOING TO GO IN THIS BAD

DIRECTION

NO UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONS,

THAT'S BECAUSE IF YOUR SPOUSE

CAN'T MEET YOUR EXPECTATIONS,

THEN YOU CAN'T BE HAPPY WITH

THEM, SABRINA CAME INTO

MARRIAGE WITH THIS PROBLEM.ING

NO EXPECTATIONS FROM HER

TOWARDS ME THAT I HAD NO IDEA

THAT WERE THERE, SO THERE WAS

RESENTMENT THAT BEGAN TO BUILD

UP BECAUSE SHE THOUGHT I SHOULD

KNOW THIS

AND THERE WAS THIS WALL

BETWEEN US THAT I COULDN'T

COMPREHEND THAT HE COULDN'T

COMPREHEND.

SHANTI SAYS THE RESEARCH

PROVES THAT THE HOMES THAT

PRACTICE THE ATTITUDES

HIGHLIGHTED IN HER BOOK COULD

BE IMPROVED, THEY WANT PEOPLE

TO KNOW THIS TRUTH, THE 50%

DIVORCE RATE IS A MYTH, ABOUT

80% THRIVE AND SURVIVE, NOT A

MEASLY HALF.

IF YOU KNOW, MOST MARRIAGES

DO MAKE IT, MOST MARRIAGES ARE

HAPPY, IT'S A COMPLETELY

DIFFERENT FEELING LIKE, YOU

KNOW WHAT, STATISTICALLY, WE'RE

GOING TO BE JUST FINE, WE CAN

GET THROUGH THIS BECAUSE MOST

PEOPLE DO.

THE FACTS SHOW, THE REALITY

IS YOU HAVE NO REASON TO BE

FATALISTIC, EVERY COUPLE HAVE

IT IN THEIR POWER THAT ONE THAT

CAN BE TRULY CALLED HIGHLY

HAPPY, REPORTING FROM ATLANTIC

GEORGIA, PAUL STRAND.

WOW, MY WIFE HAD ONE SPECIAL

EXPECTATION SHE LEARNED FROM

HER FATHER, I HAVE TO TAKE THE

GARBAGE OUT.

WELL, YOU GOT OFF THE HOOK,

HIGHLY DOABLE.

GOOD LADY, WE'VE HAD A GREAT

TIME TOGETHER, MANY, MANY

YEARS, UPS AND DOWNS AND MANY

HARDSHIPS.

THOSE THINGS ARE SUPPOSED TO

PULL YOU TOGETHER.

THEY DO, YOU THINK OF THE

HARD TIMES AS BEING THE BEST IN

YOUR LIFE AND YOU CHERISH THEM.

ABSOLUTELY.

ANYHOW, GOD HAS BLESSED ME

AND I THINK ABOUT, HE CHOSE MY

WIFE BECAUSE HE SAW -- I MEAN,

MAN, WE'VE GOT SOME GENETIC

THINGS COOKING, OUR KIDS ARE

AWESOME AND THE GRANDCHILDREN

ARE EQUALLY AWESOME AND YOU

THINK MY WORD, TALK ABOUT

OVERACHIEVERS BUT GOD HAD THE

GENETIC -- I DON'T KNOW THE

GENETICS, YOU DON'T KNOW THE

GENETICS WHEN YOU GET MARRIED.

YES, AND I THINK ALSO YOU

SAID EARLIER, WHEN YOU LOVE THE

LORD, THERE'S A FAITHFULNESS

FACTOR IN THAT, THERE ISN'T ANY

PUSH ON IT, YOU JUST STAND YOUR

GROUND.

AND I THINK YOU KNOW BEING A

GREAT GRANDFATHER,

GRANDCHILDREN IN PARTICULAR

JUST LIKE HAVE GRANDPARENTS

AROUND, IT GIVES THEM A SENSE

OF STABILITY, WE HAVE A FAMILY

THAT STARTED HERE AND THAT IS

HERE AND THAT IS MOVING HERE

AND I REST ON A FOUNDATION AND

THEY FEEL THAT.

OF COURSE THEY DO.

AMEN, WELL, OKAY, I'M NOT

TEACHING YOU ABOUT MINE, BUT

PAUL, YOU DID A GOOD JOB,

BUDDY, I DON'T KNOW IF YOU'RE

MARRIED OR NOT BUT BY ALL

MEANS, GET MARRIED AND STAY

MARRIED BECAUSE YOU HAVE THE

SECRET.

I LOVE THAT 80% SUCCESS RATE.

THE MAN ONCE CALLED FOOTBALL

RAM BOW TALKS ABOUT GOING TO

BATTLE EVERY WEEKEND.

HE'S NOT COMING UP PATTING

ME ON THE SHOULDER AND SAYING

GOOD CATCHFINGER HE'S TRYING TO

KNOCK MY BLOCK OFF

WE'LL SIT DOWN WITH STEVE

SMITH, FOOTBALL PRORECEIVER AND

THAT'S NEXT.

-RECEIVER AND THAT'S NEXT.

IF YOU FOLLOW PRO-BOOT BALL,

YOU KNOW THE CAROLINA PANTHERS

HAVE BEEN ONE OF THE SURPRISES

OF THIS SEASON, AFTER THE FIRST

FEW WEEK, THEY LOOK TO BE DEAD

IN THE WATER, NOW THEY'RE

DIVISION CHAMPS AND HOSTING A

PLAYOFF GAME ON SUNDAY.

ONE REASON FOR THE TURN AROUND

HAS BEEN THE LEADERSHIP OF STAR

RECEIVER STEVE SMITH, RECENTLY

OUR SHAWN BROWN SAT DOWN WITH

THE OLD PRO AND HE TALKED ABOUT

HIS OWN PERSONAL TURN AROUND.

WE'RE NOT A CHANGE OF COOKIE

RECIPE, WE'RE NOT PLAYING PATTY

CAKE, ONE OF MY EX-TEAM MEAT

MATES, 6 FOOT 7, HE'S NOT

PATTING ME ON THE SHOULDER AND

SAYING GOOD CATCH, HE'S TRYING

TO KNOCK MY BLOCK OFF.

STEVE SMITH HAS BEEN

DESCRIBED A AS ONE OF THE MOST

AGGRESSIVE RECEIVERS IN THE

BRAIN, HE'S EASILY ONE OF THE

SMALLEST BUT HE'S ALSO ONE OF

THE MOST PRODUCTIVE.

WHEN YOU'RE PLAYING

FOOTBALL, THERE'S GUY THAT IS

ARE BIGGER, YOU HAVE TO TAKE

SOMETHING TO THE FIELD TO BE

COMPETITIVE, PEOPLE CALL THAT A

CHIP POINT ON YOUR SHOULDER.

IN THIS BUSINESS, I MAKE A

LOT OF MONEY BUT AT THE SAME

TIME, I WORK WITH MY HAND AND

YOU WORK WITH YOUR HANDS AND

YOU'RE WORKING BLUE COLLAR JOB,

YOU HAVE TO BRING YOUR HARD

HAT, I BELIEVE IN DOING IT WITH

YOUR WHOLE HEART, THERE'S GOING

TO BE ONE PERSON THAT WINS THE

PRIZE, SO RUN THE RACE TO WIN

THE PRIZE.

THAT APPROACH SEEMS TO HAVE

PAID OFF, FOR HIS FIRST 8

SEASONS, STEVE TORE UP THE

FIELD WITH HIS STRONG HAND AND

STRONG FEET, OPPOSING TEAMS

WOULD ASSIGN TWO PLAYERS TO

DEFEND HIM, DURING 2005 SEASON,

HE LED THE GAME IN RECEIVING

LINES AND TOUCHDOWNS, IT CAUSED

HIM TO NEGLECT THE FAITH HE

FOUND EARLIER.

NFRJT THE BOILING ROOM OF TAMPA

BAY, 2003, I ACCEPTED CHRIST

AND I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND THE

RESPONSIBILITY, UNDERSTAND THE

FULL LIFE LONG COMMITMENT, THE

TRUE COVENANT BETWEEN BELIEVING

IN MYSELF AND WITH CHRIST AND

SO JUST KIND OF WAS LUKEWARM

WITH STRADDLE OFFENSE, LOOKED

FOR WHEN I NEEDED IT, WHI

DIDN'T NEED IT, I SHOVED IT TO

THE SIDE.

WITH PRIDE IF IN THE DRIVER

SEAT, THAT PRIDE LED TO

PHYSICAL ALT OCCASIONS WITH

OPPOSING PLAYERS AND TEAMMATES,

ONE MORNING DURING THE 2010

SEASON, HE TOOK A LOOK AT H*ILS.

.

INGER I REALLY DID NOT

RECOGNIZE THE YOUNG MAN IN THE

MIRROR, I DIDN'T RECOGNIZE HIM,

I DIDN'T LIKE WHAT I SAW, VAIN,

EGO T*IS CAL, THE WORLD

REVOLVED AROUND ME AND IT WAS

THE ONLY IMPORTANT THING AT

THAT TIME WAS ME AND THAT'S NOT

HOW REAL LIFE WORKS, THAT'S NOT

WHAT A HUSBAND OUGHT TO THINK

AND OUGHT TO BE OR A FATHER.

HE SAYS THAT'S WHEN HE WAS

FACED WITH THE QUESTION FROM

GOD.

GOD REALLY BROKE ME AND

ASKED ME THAT QUESTION THAT I

THINK EVERYONE HAS IN DIFFERENT

WAYS WHICH WAS, YOU KNOW,

YOU'VE PLAYED THIS GAME LONG

ENOUGH FOR YOURSELF, WHEN ARE

YOU GOING TO START PLAYING FOR

ME, SO THAT WAS A QUESTION THAT

WAS -- IT HIT HOME.

AT THAT MOMENT, STEVE

DECIDED IT WAS TIME TO GET OFF

THE FENCE, SO HE REDEDICATED

HIS LIFE TO THE LORD.

IT REALLY TOOK ME

STATISTICALLY THAT WAS PRETTY

MUCH THE WORST YEAR THAT I HAD

IN MY PROFESSIONAL YEAR OUTSIDE

OF BREAKING MY ANKLE AFTER

GOING TO SUPER BOWL, BUT

SPIRITUALLY AND MENTALLY AND

PHYSICALLY, IT WAS PROBABLY THE

MOST BEST YEAR I'VE HAD.

STEVE HAD FOUND PEACE WITHIN

HIMSELF AND ON THE FIELD.

TODAY, HE'S STILL AT THE TOP OF

HIS GAME BUT HE ADMITS HE'S

STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS.

PEOPLE SEE WHAT THEY WANT TO

SEE.

WHEN STEVE SMITH TAKES THE

FIELD, WHAT IS IT THAT YOU WANT

PEOPLE TO SEE?

WELL, I USED TO THINK ABOUT

THAT A LOT, AND AS A SOELT, WE

NEED TO QUIT FOCUSING ON WHAT

WE SEE AND UNDERSTAND THAT I

MEAN WE'RE REGULAR PEOPLE, YOU

KNOW, I MOW MY LAWN AND DO ALL

THAT OTHER STUFF JUST LIKE

ANYBODY ELSE, I'M FLAWED, BUT I

THINK SOMETIMES WE DON'T WANT

TO SEE THE REAL -- EVERYONE

ESPECIALLY AS A DAD, HOW MANY

TIMES ARE YOU TOLD, PAY TEN, MY

OLDER SON IS PAY T*EN, CLEAN UP

THOSE LEGOS AND THEN YOU GO AND

GET SOME WATER OR DRINK,

WHATEVER KIND OF DRINK IT IS,

YOU STEP ON THAT LEGO, IF THE

CAMERA WAS RIGHT THERE AT THAT

MOMENT AT 12:00 MIDNIGHT WHEN

YOU STEP ON THAT LEGO MANY THE

MIDDLE OF YOUR FOOT, WOULD YOU

BE HAPPY AT WHAT PEOPLE HEARD

YOU SAY?

STEVE SAYS HE KNOWS HE'S

MADE A LOT OF BAD CHOICES IN

HIS CAREER, HIS BEST DECISION

WAS GETTING SERIOUS WITH CHRIST

AND NOW HE'S ALL ABOUT SHARING

HIS STORY OF GOD'S UNWAVERING

LOVE.

YOU CAN HAVE IN YOUR BANK

ACCOUNT WELLS FARGO, BANK OF

AMERICA, EVERY BIG BUSINESS BUT

ON THAT WEEKEND, THEY AREN'T

OPEN, AT MIDNIGHT WHEN YOU'RE

BROKEN, THAT BANK ACCOUNT ISN'T

GOING THE HELP YOU, GOD HAS

BEEN IN MY LIFE WHETHER I'VE

KNOWN IT OR NOT AND HE'S BEEN

THERE FOR DAYS THAT I HAVE

KNOWN OR NOT KNOWN, HE'S

REDEMPTIVE, HE'S THAT FATHER

THAT EVEN WHEN YOUR DAD IS EVEN

STRIKING OUT THAT HE HOLDS YOU.

WHAT AN EXTRAORDINARY

TESTIMONY.

YOU KNOW, EGO T*IS KL, IT'S SO

EASY IF YOU'RE IN THAT

LIMELIGHT, YOU HAVE GROUPIES

COMING AFTER YOU, YOU HAVE THE

PRESS SAYING WHAT A GREAT GUY

YOU ARE, YOU HAVE STATISTICS

AND PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT YOU IN

THE SPORTS SHOWS AND YOU HAVE A

BIG FAT PAYCHECK, THOSE GUYS

MAKE A LOT OF MONEY IF THEY'RE

GOOD AND YOU'VE GOT A YOUNG KID

THAT MAYBE COMES OUT OF THE

PROJECTS AND SUDDENLY HE'S A

MULTIMILLIONAIRE AND IT'S SO

EASY AND WE JUST SHOWED YOU

SOMEBODY WHO GOT HIS PRIORITIES

RIGHT BECAUSE REALLY THE ONLY

THING THAT MATTERS IN LIFE IS

WHAT DID YOU DO WITH JESUS?

HE IS GOD.

HE IS THE AUTHOR OF LIFE.

HE IS YOUR CREATOR.

AND IF YOU ARE RIGHT WITH HIM,

EVERYTHING ELSE WILL WORK OUT.

IF YOU'RE NOT RIGHT WITH HIM,

IT'S ALL GOING TO GO BAD.

YOU CAN HAVE MILLIONS OF

DOLLARS, YOU CAN HAVE THE

ACCLAIM OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE,

YOU CAN HAVE ALL THIS BUT IF

YOU AREN'T RIGHT WITH GOD, NONE

OF IT MATTERS.

YOU KNOW, THAT -- WELL, WHAT

ABOUT YOU?

LET ME ASK YOU RIGHT NOW, YOU

SAY, WELL, I'M NOT AN NFL STAR,

OKAY, IF YOU ARE, WELL, MAYBE

YOU'RE NOT A ROCK SINGER

EITHER, MAYBE YOU'RE NOT AN

OPERA SINGER, MAYBE YOU'RE NOT

A DISTINGUISHED AUTHOR, BUT

WHAT IF YOU ARE, BUT GOD HAS A

PLAN FOR YOU AND HE LOVES YOU

AND WHAT HE'S DOING RIGHT NOW

IS REACHING OUT TO YOU AND

SAYING TO YOU, WOULD YOU LIKE

TO KNOW ME.

DO YOU WANT TO BE PART OF MY

HEAVENLY KINGDOM, AND IF YOU

DO, IF YOU WANT TO SPEND

ETERNITY WITH HIM, I WANT YOU

RIGHT NOW TO ACCEPT HIS

INVITATION, BOW YOUR HEAD AND

SAY YES, OKAY.

START THE YEAR, JUST BOW YOUR

HEAD, PRAY THIS PRAYER, LORD,

JESUS, SAY THESE WORDS WITH ME

AND MEAN THEM IN YOUR HEART,

LORD, JESUS, I KNOW YOU DIED

FOR ME, I KNOW YOU ROSE AGAIN,

I KNOW THAT YOU LIVE AND YOU

WILL GIVE ME ETERNAL LIFE, SO

NOW I ACCEPT YOUR INVITATION,

JESUS, AND I ASK YOU COME INTO

MY HEART, LIVE IN ME AND FROM

THIS MOMENT ON, I'M YOURS.

I GAVE YOU MY LIFE AND I THANK

YOU.

THANK YOU, JESUS, THAT YOU'VE

HEARD MY PRAYER.

NOW, I WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU,

FATHER FOR EVERYONE WHO PRAYED

WITH ME JUST THEN, LET THE

ANOINTING OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD

COME INTO THEIR LIVES, IN JESUS

NAME, FILL THEM, AMEN.

IF YOU PRAYED WITH ME, I WANT

YOU TO MOVE ON AND I WANT YOU

TO GET SOMETHING GOING IN YOUR

LIFE AND THIS CAN CHANGE YOUR

LIFE.

IT'S A TEACHING, IT'S A COMPACT

DISK, IT'S ONLY THREE MINUTES,

YOU CAN PUT NIT THE CD PLAYER

IN YOUR CAR, WHEREVER YOU HAVE

ONE AND LISTEN TO IT, IT WILL

INTERNATIONAL AND PAT AND TERRY

WILL BE BACK AFTER THIS.

WELL, IT'S TIME FOR US TO

TAKE SOME OF YOUR E-MAIL

QUESTIONS AND ANSWER THEM AND,

PAT, IN OUR BRING IT ON SEMEN,

CHRISTIAN'S COMMENT IS I HEARD

A MINISTER SAY THAT GOD'S LOVE

IS NOT UNCONDITIONAL, THERE'S

NOWHERE IN THIS BIBLE THAT SAYS

THAT, I'VE BEEN TAUGHT ALL MY

LIFE IT'S THE OPPOSITE, PLEASE

HELP.

WE'RE HUNG UP ON

TERMINOLOGY, THE BIBLE SAYS

CLEARLY IF YOU CONTINUE IN MY

WORD, THEN YOU'RE MY DISCIPLES

AND THEN YOU SHOULD KNOW THE

TRUTH AND THE TRUTH SHALL SET

ME FREE IF YOU CONTINUE IN MY

WORDS, SO THAT'S A CONDITION,

GOD SAYS I LOVE YOU AND I WILL

BLESS YOU BUT YOU HAVE TO

CONTINUE IN MY WORD, SO THAT IS

A CONDITION, SO TO SAY IT'S

UNCONDITIONAL, HIS LOVE OF

COURSE IS, GOD IS LOVE, HE IS

LOVE, SO THERE'S NO CONDITION

TO NA WHATSOEVER, GOD IS NOT

LOVING, GOD IS LOVE, HE THAT

DWELLS IN LOVE DWELLS IF GOD,

SO GOD IS LOVE, NEVERTHELESS,

IF WE WANT TO PLEASE GOD AND

REMEMBER IF YOU CONTINUE IN MY

WORD, YOU KNOW, IF WE WALK IN

THE LIGHT AS HE IS IN THE

LIGHT, WE HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH

ONE ANOTHER AND THE BLOOD OF

JESUS CHRIST CONTINUOUSLY

CLEANSES US FROM ALL SIN.

YOUR MINISTER IS RIGHT IN A

SENSE BUT DON'T GET HUNG UP ON

TERMINOLOGY, GOD IS LOVE OF

COURSE SO THAT'S UNCONDITIONAL,

BUT IN TERMS OF OUR APPROACH TO

HIM, THERE HAS TO BE OBEDIENCE,

THERE HAS TO BE OBEDIENCE, YOU

CAN'T JUST SAY, WELL, I SAID

YES ONCE UPON A TIME AND I'M

GOING LIVE FOR THE DEVIL FROM

THEN ON?

THIS IS BONNIE AND MY DAD

JUST PASSED AWAY AND HE LEFT ME

SOME MONEY, THE FIRST THING I

WANTED TO DO WAS PAY MY

TITHING, WHAT IS A WISE

INVESTMENT?

I THINK INVESTING IN THE

KING, IF YOU WANT TO PUT A

TITHE, FIND SOMEBODY WHO

BELIEVERS IN THE BIBLE, FIND

SOMEBODY WHO'S REACHING OUT TO

THE NEEDY AND THE POOR AND

REACH OUT TO THOSE AND IF YOU

CAN GIVE TO A MINISTRY SUCH AS

THAT, THAT IS WONDERFUL, BEYOND

THAT, I AM A STRONG BELIEVER IN

STRONG COMPANIES THAT PAY, THAT

HAVE PAID YEAR AFTER YEAR AFTER

YEAR GOOD DIVIDENDS, I THINK TO

HAVE -- AS ONE GUY SAID

INVESTMENTS THAT SWEAT, YOU

WANT SOMETHING THAT PAYS

SOMETHING, SO THAT'S WHAT I

THINK IS GOOD, BUT YOU COULD --

I HATE TO SAY GET AN INVESTOR

ADVISER, MOST OF THEM WILL GIVE

YOU BAD ADVICE, BUT THERE ARE

COMPANIES, I AM PARTICULARLY

FOND OF THESE MASSIVE LIMITED

PARTNERSHIPS WHERE THEY PAY OUT

MOST OF THEIR INCOME IN

DIVIDENDS.

THIS IS CAT WHAT SAYS PLEASE

ELABORATE ON MEDIUMS, YOU CAN

SEE IF YOU CAN TEST -- I'M

WATCHING THIS ONE MEDIUM AND

SHE ALWAYS HAS SPOT ON

INFORMATION.

LOOK, THAT TV SHOW, TV

SHOWS, THEY CAN MAKE THOSE

PEOPLE SAY ANYTHING AND HAVE

ANYTHING THEY WANT TO, I MEAN,

THOSE THINGS, THEY'RE DRAMATIC,

SO YOU COULD HAVE A SCRIPT

WRITER, I DON'T KNOW WHAT SHE

DOES OR DOESN'T DO, BUT I DO

KNOW THE BIBLE CONDEMNS

MEDIUMS, THOSE WHO SPEAK TO THE

DEAD, THAT'S WHAT A MEDIUM IS,

THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO BE SPEAKING

TO THE DEAD AND THE BIBLE TALKS

ABOUT SPIRIT THAT [INAUDIBLE]

AND CONDEMNS THEM, SO I KNOW

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS REGARDLESS

OF LONG ISLAND MEDIUM WHICH IS

THE NAME OF THE SHOW, ALRIGHT.

OKAY, THIS IS A VIEWER WHO

SAYING HOW IS JUDGMENT DAY

GOING TO HAPPEN AND HOW CAN I

ENSURE THAT I'LL BE GOING TO

HEAVEN WHEN THAT DAY COMES?

I THINK THE BIGGEST THING IS

TO LIVE THE LORD EVERY DAY, YOU

LIVE FOR HIM, YOU LOVE HIM AND

YOU SERVE HIM AND WHEN THE

JUDGMENT DAY COMES, BUT WE CAN

SEE THESE THINGS, I REALLY

BELIEVE WE'RE GETTING MUCH

CLOSER TO THE END OF THE THINGS

THAN WE EVER HAVE BEEN BEFORE,

THERE'S SO MANY PROPHETIC THING

THAT IS ARE BEING FULFILLED AND

I'M NOT GOING INTO GREAT DETAIL

RIGHT NOW BUT I THINK WE ALL

OUGHT TO BE CONCERNED, PAUL

SAID THAT I MAY OBTAIN THE

RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD,

HERE'S A MAN WHO GAVE HIS

ENTIRE LIFE TO GOD, BUT IF I

CAN ATTAIN TO THAT FINAL DAY TO

BE PART OF HEAVEN AND THE BIBLE

SAYS DON'T REJOICE THAT THE

DEVIL'S A SUBJECT TO EVEN

REJOICE THAT YOUR NAMES ARE

WRITTEN IN HEAVEN, I BELIEVE

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO

MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE GIVEN

YOUR HEART TO JESUS AND THEN WE

WALK IN THE LIGHT AS HE IS IN

THE LIGHT DAY BY DAY BY DAY BY

DAY BY DAY WE GIVE HIM OUR BEST

AND OUR ALL AND WE DON'T HAVE

TO WORRY ABOUT AM I IN OR NOT.

THIS IS JOANNE THAT SAYS MY

OLDER BROTHER WON'T SPEAK TO

HIM BECAUSE I'VE STEPPED WHEN

HE'S TRIED TO BORROW MONEY FROM

MY MOTHER, HE'S PAID THOUSANDS

OF DOLLARS IN THE PAST AND

NEVER PAID HER A NICKEL BACK,

HE RESENTS ME FOR IT AND WON'T

SPEAK TO ME, I'M HER EXECUTRIX

AND I AM OVEREXTENDING, MY

SPIRIT TELLS ME NOT TO TRUST

HIM BUT HE'S MY BROTHER, I

VALUE YOUR OPINION.

YOU'RE EXECUTORS, YOU HAVE A

LEGAL OBLIGATION TO PRESERVE

THAT ESTATE AND YOU CANNOT LET

IT BE -- LOSE IT BY SOMEBODY

LIKE THIS BROTHER.

HE'S OBVIOUSLY UP TO NO GOOD

AND YOU HAVE AN ABSOLUTE LEGAL

RESPONSIBILITY AND YOU COULD

TELL HIM, LOOK, BEFORE THE LAW,

I AM THE LEGAL EXECUTRIX OF

THIS ESTATE AND I HAVE TO

PRESERVE ITS ASSETS OR I WILL

BE SUED, SO YOU JUST SAY, NO,

YOU CAN'T HAVE ANYMORE MONEY,

AND YOU HAVE TO DO THAT AND IF

HE'S PREYING ON AN ELDERLY

PARENT, IT'S A SHAME, THERE MAY

COME A TIME WHERE YOU HAVE TO

SUE TO GET THE MONEY BACK, I

KNOW IT'S HARD BUT YOU HAVE A

LEGAL RESPONSIBILITY AS

EXECUTRIX TO DO THAT AND IT HAS

NOTHING TO DO WITH I LOVE MY

BROTHER OR DON'T LOVE HIM AND

YOU HAVE TO SAY I LOVE YOU BUT

I HAVE A LEGAL OBLIGATION AND

HERE IT IS.

WISE COUNSEL.

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR

QUESTIONS, WE ALWAYS LOVE

HEARING FROM YOU, COMING UP, AN

UNWANTED ORPHAN WHO FOUND A

LOVING HOME AND COULDN'T STAND

IT.

HEAR WHY SHE WANTED TO COMMIT

SUICIDE AND WHAT STAYED HER

HAND.

THAT'S NEXT.

AS A CHILD, BECKY KITCHEN

SON ENDURED THINGS THAT NO ONE

SHOULD EVER HAVE TO GO THROUGH

AND WHILE HER ABUSE EVENTUALLY

STOPPED, HER NIGHT MACE DID NOT.

I WAS TREATED LIKE AN OUT

CAST, LOCKED IN A ROOM, I

STAYED IN THE DARK FOR TWO AND

A HALF YEARS, YELLING,

SCREAMING, JUST CONSTANT,

TERRORIZING ME.

BECKY KITCHEN SON WAS BORN

INTO THE FOSTER CARE SYSTEM,

SHE HAO HAUNTING MEMORIES OF

THE FAMILY THAT TOOK HER IN

WHEN SHE WAS 2.

THE ONLY THING I ATE OFF WAS

LIQUID, BOTTLE, I HAD

MALNUTRITION TOO.

I WAS IN A PLAYPEN-LIKE THING

JUST WHERE I LIVED BY MYSELF.

UNTIL THE AFTERNOON, BECKY'S

FOSTER MOTHER TRIED TO DROWN

HER IN A TUB OF SCOLDING WATER,

SHE SURVIVED AND WAS TAKEN TO

THE HOSPITAL.

I GOT BURNT PRETTY BAD,

AFTER THAT INCIDENT, THEY PUT

ME IN A NEW FOSTER HOME WHICH

WAS WITH THE FAMILY THAT I

ENDED UP STAYING WITH.

THEY SHOWED SO MUCH LOVE, MOMMA

ALWAYS TOLD ME THAT SHE LOVED

ME, DAD ALWAYS TOLD ME HE LOVED

ME AND MOMMA ALWAYS SHARED THAT

GOD LOVED ME.

AS SHE GREW OLDER, BECKY

SAYS THE MESSAGE OF GOD'S LOVE

WASN'T THE ONE SHE BELIEVED.

IF EITHER GOD IS LOVE OR I

WOULD HEAR IF YOU'RE BAD, YOU

GO TO HELL, AND I ALREADY FELT

BAD ABOUT MYSELF.

BECKY WAS ALSO TORMENTED BY

BAD NIGHTMARES AND CONSTANT

THOUGHTS OF SUICIDE.

I FELT VERY SUICIDAL, ALWAYS

THINKING ABOUT DEATH.

AFTER HIGH SCHOOL, BECKY

JOINED THE NAVY, BY NOW, SHE

HAD DEVELOPED AN INEXPLICABLE

FEAR OF CHURCH.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS, I

WOULD GET SO STIRRED UP ON THE

INSIDE, MY WHOLE WORLD WOULD GO

CRAZY WHEN I WOULD GET NEAR OR

IN A CHURCH.

ER

BECKY USED DRUGS AND ALCOHOL

TO ESCAPE YOUR REALITY BUT THE

SUICIDAL THOUGHTS BECAME

OVERBEARING, THE NIGHTMARES

MORE REAL.

ON THE INSIDE, I WAS

TERRORIZED JUST BY THOSE

NEGATIVE THOUGHTS.

WHEN I WROTE THE LETTER TO MY

PARENTS TELLING THEM I LOVED

THEM BUT I COULDN'T LIVE ANY

LONGER AND TOOK A BUNCH OF

PILLS, WENT OUT DRINKING,

BLACKED OUT, ENDED UP IN THE

HOSPITAL.

HER LIFE WAS SPARED THAT DAY

BUT IT WAS THE DEATH OF HER

MOTHER YEARS LATER THAT MADE

HER WANT TO LIVE.

SHE TOOK MY HAND IN THE

HOSPITAL AND SAID I'M GOING TO

BE WITH JESUS NOW.

WHEN SHE TOOK HER FINAL BREATH,

I WAS LIKE, SHE REALLY DOES

HAVE SOMETHING THAT I DON'T

HAVE, THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME I

REALLY STARTED TO ACKNOWLEDGE

THAT I NEEDED SOMETHING

DIFFERENT.

SHE TOOK A JOB WORKING AT

DAYCARE TO HELP OUT A FRIEND.

HER HELPER QUIT AND I SAID,

WHERE IS IT AT?

AND SHE SAID AT THE BAPTIST

CHURCH.

I SAID, NO, I DON'T WANT TO GO

TO CHURCH.

SHE SAID IT'S IN THE BACK ROOM,

WE HAVE THE KIDS BACK THERE, SO

I TOOK THE JOB AND IT WAS A

BLESSING, AND THE WHOLE TIME,

THEY PLANTED LITTLE SEEDS OF

FAITH IN MY HEART.

SHE WAS ALSO SEEING A

CHRISTIAN COUNSELOR, THAT

FRIENDSHIP LED HER TO THE VERY

PLACE SHE HAD BEEN AVOIDING

MOST OF HER LIFE.

ONCE I STARTED GOING TO

CHURCH IS WHEN I REALLY MET

JESUS.

EVEN WITH FEAR IN MY HEART, I

CAME EVERY SUNDAY, SOMETHING

KEPT DRAWING ME BACK, BRINGING

BACK BACK, BRINGING ME BACK,

AND I HAD TO FIGHT THROUGH THE

FEAR AND I WOULD GO.

THEN ONE EASTER SUNDAY, SHE

WAS MOVED BY THE DEMONSTRATION

OF CHRIST'S LOVE.

AT THE END OF THE SERVICE,

THEY PUT UP A CLIP FROM THE

PASSION OF THE CHRIST AND IT

WAS LIKE I WAS RIGHT THERE, I

WAS IN IT, IT WAS LIKE I WAS

RIGHT THERE AT THE TOMB, I

STOOD UP AND IN THE CHURCH AND

I WAS LIKE, I WANT JESUS, AND I

FELT A CHANGE RIGHT THEN, MY

LIFE CHANGED RIGHT AT THAT

MOMENT THAT I PRAYED THE

SINNER'S PRAYER.

THE NIGHTMARES GONE, NO MORE

THOUGHTS OF ENDING HER LIFE,

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 40 YEARS,

BECKY STARTED TO LOVE HERSELF

AND SHE BELIEVED FINALLY THAT

JESUS LOVED HER TOO.

JESUS ACCEPTS US JUST AS WE

ARE RIGHT THEN, I DIDN'T HAVE

TO DO ANY WORK TO CHANGE BECKY,

JESUS CHANGES ME ON A DAILY

BASIS.

AND THAT GOES ON FOREVER AND

EVER AND EVER BECAUSE WE ARE

FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE

THE BIBLE SAYS, THAT WE ARE

CREATED IN HIS IMAGE AND IN HIS

LIKENESS, THAT HE LOVES US WITH

AN EVERLASTING LIVE, THESE ARE

THE THINGS IN THE WORD OF GOD

WHO DESCRIBES WHO HE IS, THE

RELATIONSHIP HE WANTS TO HAVE

WITH US AND THE ENEMY OF GOD

COMES ALONG AND WHAT DO YOU

THINK HE DOES, HE DISTORTS THAT

IMAGE, HE DISTORTS OUR IMAGE OF

OURSELVES TELLING US WE ARE

UNLOVABLE, UNWORTHY,

UNFORGIVABLE, HE DOES IT

THROUGH THINGS LIKE ABUSE,

DEPRAVATION, MISUSE, ADDICTIONS

OF THINGS, ALL KINDS OF THINGS,

AND THEN WE LIVE IN THAT LIE

UNTIL THE DAY WE UNDERSTAND THE

TRUTH, THE TRUTH IS WE ARE ALL

SINNERS IN NEED OF A SAVIOR,

THE TRUTH IS WE HAVE A GOD WHO

LOVES US SO MUCH THAT HE HAS

PLANNED FOR AN ETERNITY WITH US

AND HE IS HERE TO SAVE US FROM

THE THINGS AROUND US, THE

THINGS THAT THE ENEMY TRIES TO

USE TO DESTROY US, WE HAVE TO

DECIDE WHO WILL WE BELIEVE,

WHOSE REPORT WILL YOU BELIEVE,

THE ENEMY WHO'S TOLD YOU YOU

ARE UNWORTHY, UNLOVABLE,

UNFORGIVABLE OR WILL YOU

RECEIVE TODAY THE WORD OF THE

LORD?

YOU ARE FEARFULLY AND

WONDERFULLY MADE BY A FATHER

WHO WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU AND

WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU, BY A

SAVIOR WHO GAVE EVERYTHING HE

HAD TO REDEEM YOU AND ME AND TO

MAKE A WAY FOR US TO BE WITH

HIM ALWAYS, TODAY RECEIVE THAT,

THERE'S NOTHING SCARY ABOUT

GOD, NOTHING SCARY AT ALL,

WHAT'S FRIGHTENING IS MISSING

OUT ON ALL HE'S PREPARED FOR

US, IT'S NOT THAT HE'S A HARSH

GOD WHO SAYS YOU'RE GOING TO

HELL, IT'S THAT HE IS PERFECT

LOVE, HE INVITES US TO ALLOW US

TO INVADE US AND GIVE US HOPE

FOR THE FUTURE, THERE IS NO

PLACE FOR THOSE WHO DON'T

BELIEVE, WHO DON'T ACCEPT IN

THE WORLD WITH HIM, IN THE

EVERLASTING WORLD WITH HIM BUT

TODAY YOU CAN KNOW WHAT IT'S

LIKE TO WALK WITH HIM, INVITE

HIM INTO YOUR HARD, SURRENDER,

TODAY SAY I CHOOSE YOU, I

CHOOSE THE TRUTH, I WANT TO BE

SET FREE, HE'S THERE FOR

EVERYONE WHO CALLS UPON HIM

NAME, IF YOU HAVE A NEED AND

YOU WANT SOMEONE TO PRAY WITH

YOU, IT'S 1-800-759-0700 SX,

THE PERSON WHO ANSWERS THAT

PHONE IS SOMEONE WHO'S FOUND

THAT HOPE AND THAT PEACE, CALL
