700 Club Interactive: Hope Heals - Feb. 12, 2014

Is there purpose in pain? See how hope can bring healing Read Transcript


Gordon: A YOUNG WIFE

AND MOTHER CUT DOWN IN HER

PRIME.

SHE SURVIVED THE SURGERY,

BUT THERE WILL BE DEFICITS.

WE JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT

THOSE WILL BE YET.

SHE MAY BE IN A VEGETATIVE

STATE OR PARALYZED, BUT SHE

IS ALIVE.

Gordon: ONE FAMILY'S

STORY OF HOPE ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB INTERACTIVE."

ON "700 CLUB INTERACTIVE,"

WE USE TECHNOLOGY TO PRAY

FOR EACH OTHER AND EXPLORE

TOPICS THAT MATTER TO YOU.

WATCH WHAT GOD IS DOING IN

THE WORLD TODAY.

WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

THROUGHOUT THE YEARS, WE'VE

BROUGHT YOU STORIES OF

MIRACLES, PEOPLE WHO HAVE

SURVIVED AGAINST ALL ODDS,

EVEN AFTER MEDICAL SCIENCE

GAVE UP ON THEM.

Terry: STILL, AS WE AWE

ALL KNOW, LIFE DOESN'T ALL

WORK OUT THAT WAY.

PEOPLE GET SICK, ACCIDENTS

HAPPEN, AND FRIENDS DIE.

HOW ARE WE, AS CHRISTIANS,

SUPPOSED TO RESPOND WHEN THE

HEALING DOESN'T COME?

FOR ONE FAMILY IN

CALIFORNIA, THE ANSWER IS

HOPE.

HI.

THAT'S WEIRD.

HI.

I'M KATHRYN WOLFE, AND AT 26

YEARS OLD I HAD A MASSIVE

BRAINSTEM STROKE AND ALMOST

DIED.

WAS THAT ALL?

MY NAME IS JAY WOLFE,

AND -- WHAT WAS THE OTHER

QUESTION?

I FORGOT IT ALREADY.

SO KATHRYN AND I ARE BOTH

FROM THE DEEP SOUTH.

WE WEP WENT TO COLLEGE

TOGETHER AT SANFORD

UNIVERSITY.

FRESHMAN YEAR WE MET IN THE

CAFETERIA, AND WE BONDED

OVER FOOD.

I WEASELED MY WAY INTO HER

AFFECTIONS OVER SOME TIME.

AFTER WE GRADUATED COLLEGE,

WE HAD A HUGE, BLOW-OUT

WEDDING, DEEP SOUTH, ALL OF

THE FAMILY AND SOUTHERN

FRIED GOODNESS.

ON THAT DAY,

DECEMBER 6th, 2004,,000

WA2004, THERE WAS THIS

RADICAL LOVE STORY OF

HANGING IN THERE WITH

SOMEONE THROUGH SICKNESS AND

HEALTH, SOMETHING THIS

CULTURE DOESN'T EVEN

UNDERSTAND WITH REGARDS TO

MARRIAGE.

IT'S OKAY.

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?

OUR LIFE WAS WONDERFUL.

I WAS DOING SOME COMMERCIAL

MODELING, AND JAMES WOULD BE

BOOKED ON MODELING GIGS WITH

ME TO BE A MOTHER-SON TEAM.

WE WERE LIVING A DREAM.

ALL OF THAT CHANGED PRETTY

RADICALLY ONE MORNING IN

APRIL.

I WAS COOKING AND MY HANDS

WENT NUMB.

MY ARMS WENT NUMB.

MY LEGS WENT NUMB.

I LOOKED AT HER PUPILS,

AND THEY WERE COMPLETELY

DILATED AND BLACK, AND I

KNEW SOMETHING WAS REALLY

WRONG.

AND I YELLED AND SCREAMED

OVER HER.

AND I CALLED 9-1-1

IMMEDIATELY.

IT WAS QUITE A CRITICAL

SITUATION.

MOST PATIENTS WITH A

BLEEDING OF THAT MAGNITUDE,

WITH A MUSCLE MASS OF THAT

SIZE, UNFORTUNATELY DIED

WHEN THEY ARRIVED IN THAT

CONDITION.

THE SURGERY THAT WAS

SUPPOSED TO LAST EIGHT HOURS

LASTED 12, AND ULTIMATELY

16.

SO I GOT BY MYSELF IN THE

PRAYER CHAPEL AT UCLA, AND I

BEGAN PRAYING AND CRYING

THROUGH THE BOOK OF JOB AND

ROMANS.

THE MORNING OF APRIL 22nd,

DR. GONZALEZ CAME OUT INTO

THE WAITING ROOM AS THE SUN

WAS RISING.

HE WAS ABSOLUTELY

EXHAUSTED.

AND HE SAID, WELL, SHE

SURVIVED THE SURGERY.

BUT THERE WILL BE DEFICITS.

WE JUST DON'T KNOW WHAT

THOSE WILL BE YET.

SHE MAY BE IN A VEGETATIVE

STATE OR PARALYZED, BUT SHE

IS ALIVE.

AROUND ONE OR TWO HOURS

AFTER FINISHING THE SURGERY,

I RECEIVED A CALL FROM THE

NURSES OF THE I.C.U., AND I

WAS EXPECTING THE WORST.

BUT THE NURSES WERE

ABSOLUTELY SURVIVED.

SURPRISED.

THEY WERE CALLING ME BECAUSE

KATHRYN WAS FOLLOWING

COMMANDS.

THEY WERE ASKING HER TO SHOW

TWO FINGERS, AND SHE WAS

DOING THAT.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE THAT.

NORMALLY THAT DOESN'T HAPPEN

TO PATIENTS THAT UNDERGO A

SURGERY OF THIS MAGNITUDE.

SO I RUN TO I.C.U. TO SEE

HER, AND SURELY SHE WAS

FOLLOWING COMMANDS.

AND THAT WAS THE FIRST OF

MANY MIRACLES THAT HAPPENED

WITH KATHRYN.

WAKING UP IN THE ACUTE

REHAB ALMOST TWO MONTHS

AFTER MY BRAIN-STEM STROKE

WAS SURREAL IN EVERY SENSE

OF THE WORD.

I DIDN'T QUITE CATCH ON.

OH, THIS IS WHAT I DO NOW, I

LAY HERE.

THE DAYS AND NIGHTS AND

WEEKS AND MONTHS.

AND WHILE I WAS OKAY AND

ENGAGING AND EMBRACING MY

NEW LIFE, THERE WAS THIS

STRANGE, HORRIBLE SADNESS.

BECAUSE OF THE TRACH, AND

ALSO SOME PARALYSIS IN HER

MOUTH AND ON HER TONGUE, SHE

REALLY COULDN'T SPEAK.

AND SIMILAR TO HER LOVE OF

FOOD, KATHRYN ALSO LOVES TO

TALK, AS ANYBODY WHO KNOWS

HER WOULD SAY.

SO I WOULD USE A LETTER

BOARD.

AND I WOULD TYPE WITH MY

WORKING LEFT HAND LETTERS,

AND THAT WOULD SPEAK WORDS.

SO I WAS FRANTICALLY

CRANKING OUT THOSE LETTERS,

"I'M THE SAME ON THE

INSIDE.

I'M THE SAME ON THE INSIDE.

I'M THE SAME ON THE

INSIDE."

ALMOST FOUR MONTHS AFTER

KATHRYN'S STROKE, I MADE THE

DECISION TO MOVE TO A LONGER

TERM REHAB FACILITY.

AND THE THERAPISTS WILL SAT

ME DOWN AND TOLD ME TO

PREPARE MYSELF FOR THE

WORST-CASE SCENARIO, THAT

KATHRYN WOULD PROBABLY NEVER

SWALLOW AGAIN.

EATING IS ABOUT SO MUCH

MORE THAN JUST FOOD

CONSUMPTION.

EATING IS LIFE.

EATING IS WHAT HUMANS DO.

IT'S HOW THEY SOCIALIZE.

AND WHEN YOU CAN'T EAT, IT

IS VERY, VERY ISOLATING

BECAUSE YOU'RE NO LONGER A

PARTICIPANT IN LIFE.

YOU'RE WATCHING LIFE.

SO JERRY AND I RETURNED TO

OUR LITTLE HOUSE RIGHT

OUTSIDE OF THE BRAIN REHAB.

AND MY IN-LAWS HAD FLOWN

IN.

NOW I LOOKED UP, AND MY

THREE SISTER-IN-LAWS ARE

PLAYING WITH MY SON.

AND I'M THINKING, GOD MADE A

MISTAKE.

I SHOULD HAVE DIED.

I CAN'T EAT.

I CAN'T WALK.

I CAN'T TAKE CARE OF MY

SON.

MY FACE IS MESSED UP.

I CAN'T HEAR.

I CAN'T SEE.

I CAN'T DO ANYTHING.

SURELY THIS IS NOT RIGHT.

THIS IS A MISTAKE.

AND BEFORE THAT THOUGHT

COULD EVEN FULLY LAND, I HAD

THIS MOMENT OF KATHRYN, ARE

YOU CRAZY?

I KNOW BETTER THAN YOU

KNOW.

I'M GOD; YOU'RE NOT, (A).

AND (B) I DON'T MAKE

MISTAKES.

SO THERE IS PURPOSE IN ALL

OF THIS.

JUST WAIT; YOU'LL SEE.

AND AFTER OVER A YEAR IN

THAT NEUROREHAB, I GOT TO

LEAVE.

AND I HEALED TREMENDOUSLY.

NOTHING WAS PERFECT.

AS YOU CAN SEE, NOTHING IS

PERFECT.

AND I DOUBT IT EVER WILL BE

PERFECT AGAIN.

AND, ACTUALLY, IT WASN'T

PERFECT BEFORE.

I WAS ALLOWED TO EAT FOOD

AGAIN ON MARCH 25th, 2009,

AND IT WAS A GLORIOUS DAY

WHEN I WAS ALLOWED TO EAT

AFTER 11 MONTHS OF NO FOOD.

I BEGAN TO WALK AGAIN ON

OCTOBER 21st, 2009, WHICH

WAS EXACTLY 18 MONTHS AFTER

MY BRAIN RUPTURE.

IN OCTOBER OF 2010, I WENT

IN FOR MY ROUTINE CHECKUP

WITH MY NEUROSURGEON, AND

THIS IS TWO AND A HALF YEARS

ALMOST AFTER THE RUPTURE.

HE HELD BACK TEARS AS HE

TOLD US THAT I HAVE A SMALL

ANEURYSM BEHIND MY LEFT

EYE.

AND I WANT TO COMMUNICATE TO

YOU THAT I DON'T HANG OUT AT

THAT PLACE OF FEAR, OF

QUESTIONING WHAT MIGHT

HAPPEN.

I THINK THERE IS SOMETHING

PROFOUND ABOUT HOPE.

I MEAN, THERE IS SOMETHING

SO MEANINGFUL WHEN YOU CLING

TO SOMETHING BEYOND WHAT YOU

KNOW AND UNDERSTAND.

AND WHEN THAT'S IN THERE,

DEEP IN YOUR HEAD AND IN

YOUR HEART AND YOU BELIEVE

IT WITH EVERY OUNCE OF YOUR

BODY, SOMETHING HAPPENS.

WHEN IT HURTS THE MOST, HOPE

HEALS.

Gordon: HOPE DOES

HEAL.

AND HOPE IS THE KEY TO

FAITH.

WHEN YOU FALL INTO COMPLAINT

AND TO GRUMBLING AND INTO

BITTERNESS, WHEN YOU FALL

INTO FEAR, THAT'S WHEN YOU

LOSE THINGS.

NOW, YOU LOOK AT KATHRYN

TODAY.

AND IS SHE HEALED?

WELL, THE ANSWER IS YES AND

NO.

YOU CAN'T HELP BUT NOTICE

WHEN YOU LOOK AT HER FACE

THAT THINGS AREN'T RIGHT,

THAT THE NERVES AREN'T

FUNCTIONING PROPERLY.

WHEN YOU HEAR HER VOICE, YOU

KNOW.

BUT A DOCTOR WILL TELL YOU

THAT ANYONE WHO SURVIVES A

BRAIN-STEM ANEURYSM IS A

MIRACLE.

THAT ANYONE, AFTER A

BRAIN-STEM ANEURYSM CAN

STILL WALK, CAN TALK AT ALL,

CAN SWALLOW, CAN SEE, CAN

HEAR, ALL OF THOSE THINGS,

ABSOLUTE MIRACLE.

BUT SO OFTEN WHEN WE GET

INTO DIFFICULT TIMES, JUST

LIKE JOB'S WIFE, WE WANT TO

CURSE GOD AND DIE.

WE DON'T WANT TO SEE WHAT'S

THE PURPOSE HERE?

WHERE CAN WE FIND GOD IN THE

MIDDLE OF THIS?

WELL, THIS HAPPENED TO THE

ISRAELITES IN THE SEVENTH

CHAPTER OF ISAIAH.

THE KING OF JERUSALEM, OF

JUDAH, HAD LEARNED THAT

ISRAEL HAD MADE AN ALLIANCE

WITH THE A ASSYRIANSSYRIANS.

HE THOUGHT HIS ENTIRE

KINGDOM WOULD BE LOST, THE

TEMPLE WOULD BE LOST.

AND THE PROPHET ISAIAH CAME

TO HIM AND SAID THIS: IF YOU

DO NOT STAND FIRM IN YOUR

FAITH, YOU WILL NOT STAND AT

ALL.

WHEN THINGS GET DIFFICULT,

WHEN LIFE GETS DIFFICULT,

WHERE DO WE STAND?

WHAT'S YOUR NATURAL

REACTION?

DO WE LOOK FOR HOPE?

HOW IS GOD GOING TO MAKE A

MIRACLE OUT OF THIS?

OR DO YOU START BLAMING

HIM?

DO YOU START WONDERING, OH,

WHOA IS ME.

WHY WAS I EVER BORN?

GOD, YOU MADE SOME KIND OF

MISTAKE.

I SHOULD HAVE DIED.

WHY AM I HERE AND GOING

THROUGH THIS?

AND REALIZE, IF YOU DON'T

HAVE FAITH, YOU WON'T STAND

AT ALL.

WHAT IS IT?

WE TALK A LOT ABOUT FAITH,

BUT WHAT IS IT.

HEBREWS GIVES US A

DEFINITION: FAITH IS THE

SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED

FOR, THE EVIDENCE OF THINGS

NOT SEEN.

SO IN THE VERY DEFINITION,

IF YOU DON'T HAVE HOPE, YOU

DON'T HAVE FAITH.

BECAUSE YOU NEED THE

SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED

FOR.

I LIKE TO SAY, YOU KNOW IN

YOUR KNOWER THAT GOD IS

DOING SOMETHING, THAT HE IS

WORKING SOMETHING, THAT HE

IS WORKING ALL THINGS

TOGETHER FOR OUR GOOD, THAT

SOMEHOW IN THE MIDDLE OF

THIS THERE IS A PURPOSE,

THERE IS A DESTINY.

AND HOW CAN WE FULFILL IT?

AND WHERE DO WE FIND THAT

SUBSTANCE?

HEBREWS ALSO TELLS US, HOW

DO WE GET FAITH?

WELL, YOU LOOK TO JESUS, THE

AUTHOR AND FINISHER OF OUR

FAITH.

FOR THE JOYS SET BEFORE HIM,

ENDURED THE CROSS, DESPISING

THE SHAME, AND SAT DOWN AT

THE RIGHT HAND OF THE THRONE

OF GOD.

LOOK TO JESUS AS AN

EXAMPLE.

HERE IS SOMEONE WHO LIVED A

PERFECT LIFE.

NEVER COMMITTED A SIN.

NEVER DID ANYTHING AGAINST

GOD'S LAW.

AND AT THE SAME TIME, HERE

HE IS BEATEN, BETRAYED,

ABANDONED, MOCKED, AND THEN

HUNG NAKED ON A CROSS.

AND IN ALL OF THAT, HE NEVER

GAVE UP FAITH.

THE PSALM RECORDS THAT AFTER

HE DIED, HIS BODY RESTED IN

HOPE BECAUSE HE SAW WHAT GOD

WAS GOING TO DO.

HE LOOKED AT THE JOY SET

BEFORE HIM.

SO WE SHOULD LOOK FOR THESE

THINGS.

WHERE IS THE JOY SET BEFORE

YOU?

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT?

ARE YOU LOOKING AT THE

DIFFICULTY OF YOUR

CIRCUMSTANCE, OR ARE YOU

LOOKING HOW CAN GOD'S GLORY

BE SHOWN THROUGH WHAT I'M

GOING THROUGH?

FAITH CAN BE ELUSIVE, BUT

WHEN YOU LOOK TO JESUS, THE

AUTHOR AND THE FINISHER OF

YOUR FAITH, YOU CAN GET ALL

THE FAITH THAT YOU NEED.

THE BIBLE ALSO SAYS FAITH

COMES BY HEARING, AND

HEARING BY THE WORD.

AND I LIKE TO ADD TO THAT,

WHO IS THE WORD?

AND WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND THE

WORD IS JESUS, THAT HE IS IN

IT, THAT GOD STANDS BY HIS

WORD TO PERFORM IT, THEN

WHEN YOU FIND THOSE PROMISES

AND THOSE WORDS GET QUICK

CENQUICKENED INTO YOUR

INNERMOST BEING, YOU START

TO UNDERSTAND THAT YOU HAVE

FAITH.

BUT EVEN THEN, WHEN THINGS

GET HARD, AND WHEN THINGS

GET IMPOSSIBLE, WE CAN ALL

LOSE HEART AND WE CAN ALL

LOSE FAITH.

AND THAT HAPPENED TO THE

DISCIPLES.

IN THE NINTH CHAPTER OF

MARK, THERE IS A STORY OF A

DEMON-POSSESSED CHILD.

AND HE WOULD BE THROWN INTO

THE FIRE BY THESE FITS.

AND THEY WENT TO THE

DISCIPLES, CAN YOU HELP US?

AND THE DISCIPLES COULDN'T

DO IT.

THEY COULDN'T SEE IT.

AND THEY LATER ASKED JESUS,

WHY COULDN'T WE DO THIS?

AND JESUS SAID TO THEM

PLAINLY, BECAUSE OF YOUR

UNBELIEF.

TIMES YOU CAN HAVE FAITH AND

UNBELIEF IN THE SAME

MOMENT.

SO IF YOU HAVE TO DOUBT

ANYTHING, DON'T DOUBT YOUR

FAITH.

DOUBT YOUR DOUBTS.

THE AMAZING THING IN THE

STORY IS THE FATHER OF THE

CHILD DIDN'T GIVE UP.

HE DIDN'T HAVE AN OPTION.

HE HAD TO GET AN ANSWER.

AND FOR ME, THAT'S ONE OF

THE KEYS.

WHEN YOU GIVE UP, THEN YOU

LOSE IT.

BUT IF YOU KEEP ON PRESSING

IN, IF YOU KEEP SEARCHING,

IF YOU KEEP KNOCKING, IF YOU

KEEP ASKING, THAT'S WHEN YOU

GET IT.

SO HE DID IT.

AND HERE IS WHAT HE TOLD

JESUS: IF YOU CAN DO

ANYTHING -- SO HE IS

ACTUALLY QUESTIONING -- IF

YOU CAN DO ANYTHING, HAVE

COMPASSION ON US AND HELP

US.

JESUS RESPONDS, "IF YOU CAN

BELIEVE, ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE TO HIM WHO

BELIEVES."

AND IMMEDIATELY THE FATHER

OF THE CHILD CRIED OUT AND

SAID, "LORD, I BELIEVE.

HELP MY UNBELIEF."

AND THAT'S A WONDERFUL

PRAYER.

TO STAND ON YOUR BELIEF AND

ACKNOWLEDGE I STILL HAVE

DOUBTS.

I STILL HEAR THESE MACHINES

IN THE HOSPITAL BED.

I STILL LOOK AT THIS AND SAY

IT'S IMPOSSIBLE.

JESUS, COULD YOU HELP MY

UNBELIEF AND CAN YOU GET RID

OF THESE DOUBTS AND CAN YOU

GIVE ME HOPE AGAIN?

AND IF YOU PRAY THAT WITH

ALL OF YOUR HEART, HE'LL

HEAR.

HE'LL UNDERSTAND.

AND HE'LL GIVE YOU WHAT YOU

WANT.

WHAT HE HAS GIVEN TO THE

WOLFES IS A GREAT GIFT, THE

HOPE IN THE MILL O MIDDLE

OF A BRAIN-STEM ANEURYSM,

AND THE HOPE CAN BE YOURS.

AND THAT'S WHAT BROUGHT

KATHRYN LITERALLY BACK FROM

THE DEAD.

I LOOK FORWARD TO WHAT HE IS

GOING TO DO FOR KATHRYN IN

THE REST OF HER LIFE.

FOR MORE OF HER STORY, YOU

CAN GO TO HOPEHEALS.COM.

AND STILL AHEAD, IF YOU'RE

GOING THROUGH A TOUGH TIME,

WE'RE GOING TO BE PRAYING

FOR YOU.

ALL OF THAT IS NEXT ON "700

CLUB INTERACTIVE."

BEFORE THE BREAK, WE

HEARD THE STORY OF THE WOLFE

FAMILY WHO FOUND HOPE IN THE

MIDDLE OF TRYING TIMES.

AND WE'RE GOING TO PRAY FOR

YOU.

AND IF YOU'RE GOING THROUGH

A TOUGH TIME, THIS IS A TIME

WHERE WE GET TO AGREE WITH

YOU, THAT GOD WOULD BRING

FAITH AND HOPE AND SUBSTANCE

TO YOUR HOPE.

SO YOU CAN BELIEVE AGAIN.

YOU CAN HOPE AGAIN AND

UNDERSTAND THAT HE WANTS TO

GIVE YOU HOPE AND A FUTURE.

WE'VE GOT SOME PRAYER

REQUESTS.

RED WRITES IN, "MORE THAN

ANYTHING, MY HUSBAND AND I

WANT TO START A FAMILY, BUT

WE CAN'T CONCEIVE.

I WANT TO TRUST GOD IN THE

GOOD TIMES AND THE BAD, BUT

IT'S HARD."

ANN WRITES IN, "MY DAUGHTER

LOST HER 9-YEAR-OLD DAUGHTER

TO HER EX-HUSBAND, AND WE

HAVE NOT SEEN HER SINCE.

IT HAS BEEN 15 MONTHS, AND

MY DAUGHTER CRIES EVERY

DAY.

SHE STRUGGLES TO FIND GOD IN

ALL OF THIS.

PLEASE PRAY FOR PEACE AND

RECONCILIATION."

AND DEBBIE SAYS, "MY SON IS

A DRUG ADDICT AND HAS BEEN

AWAY FROM THE FAMILY FOR 10

YEARS.

HIS FATHER DAILY CRIES OVER

HIM, WHICH IS GUT-WRENCHING

TO HEAR.

WE'RE LOSING HOPE THAT WE'LL

EVER SEE HIM AGAIN.

PLEASE PRAY GOD BRINGS HIM

HOME.

WE WANT TO LOVE AND HELP

HIM."

Gordon: MY HEART JUST

BREAKS OVER THESE.

AND REALIZE JESUS SEES IT

ALL.

HE SEIZES YOUR TEARS.

SEES YOUR HEART.

HE SEES YOUR HEARTACHE.

AND HE UNDERSTANDS AND HE

KNOWS.

WE DON'T SERVE A GOD WHO IS

NOT TOUCHED BY WHAT WE'VE

BEEN THROUGH AND WHAT WE'RE

GOING THROUGH.

NOW, HOLD ON TO THIS: HE IS

OUR VERY PRESENT HELP IN

TIME OF TROUBLE, AND HE IS

WILLING TO DO THINGS, HE IS

WILLING TO MOVE ALL HEAVEN

AND EARTH JUST FOR YOU.

HE IS WILLING TO LEAVE THE

99 TO GO AFTER THE ONE.

THAT'S YOU.

HE IS WILLING TO COMFORT

YOU.

SO LET'S REACH OUT TO HIM.

LET'S PRAY.

IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANY NEEDS

IN YOUR LIFE, JOIN WITH US

AND PRAY FOR OTHERS.

IF YOU DO HAVE A NEED, LET'S

JUST BELIEVE GOD.

LET'S BELIEVE FOR THE

POSSIBLE.

WHEN HE SAYS NOTHING IS

IMPOSSIBLE TO THEM WHO

BELIEVE, WELL START THINKING

HOW BIG IS POSSIBLE?

HOW BIG IS OUR GOD?

HOW ABLE IS HE?

AND LET'S JUST PRAISE HIM

FOR THAT AND LET HIM TAKE

THE LOAD AND GIVE YOU THE

FAITH THAT YOU NEED.

LET'S PRAY.

LORD, FOR THESE WHO HAVE

WRITTEN IN, WE JUST LIFT UP

THEIR NEEDS TO YOU RIGHT

NOW.

AND FOR THE GRANDDAUGHTER

THAT HAS BEEN TAKEN AWAY,

FOR THE SON WHO IS A DRUG

ADDICT, FOR THE COUPLE WHO

CAN'T CONCEIVE, LORD, JUST

MEET THEIR NEED IN THEIR

TIME OF CRISIS.

LET YOUR PRESENCE BE FELT.

AND WE ASK NOW FOR THE PEACE

THAT WOULD SURPASS ALL

UNDERSTANDING, THAT WOULD BE

OVER THEM AND IN THEM.

IT WOULD GUARD THEIR HEART.

IT WOULD GUARD THEIR MIND.

AND, LORD, WE PRAISE YOU FOR

THE DELIVERANCE YOU'RE ABOUT

TO GIVE THEM, FOR THE ANSWER

THAT YOU'RE ABOUT TO GIVE

THEM.

AND, LORD, FOR THOSE

STRUGGLING RIGHT NOW, FOR

THOSE GRIEVING, FOR THOSE

WONDERING WHERE YOU ARE, WE

LOOK TO YOU, THE AUTHOR AND

THE FINISHER OF OUR FAITH.

WE LOOK TO YOU.

AND WE PRAY, JUST AS THAT

FATHER PRAYED SO LONG AGO.

LORD, WE BELIEVE.

HELP OUR UNBELIEF.

AND WE ASK NOW THAT ALL

DOUBT, ALL UNBELIEF WOULD

LEAVE.

THAT YOU WOULD TURN THEIR

MOURNING INTO DANCING.

THAT THEY WOULD REJOICE OVER

WHAT YOU'RE DOING FOR THEM,

WHAT YOU'RE ACCOMPLISHING

FOR THEM, AND HOW YOU'RE

WORKING ALL THINGS TOGETHER

FOR THEIR GOOD.

LORD, WE THANK YOU FOR

THIS.

TERRY, GOD HAS GIVEN YOU

SOMETHING.

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU HAVE A PRETTY

SEVERE CURVATURE OF THE

SPINE.

IT ACTUALLY CAUSES YOUR BODY

TO BEND TO ONE SIDE.

GOD IS HEALING THAT FOR YOU

RIGHT NOW.

YOU'RE GOING TO FEEL WARMTH

IN YOUR BACK, AND ALMOST

LIKE A LITTLE CURRENT GOING

THROUGH YOU.

THAT IS GOING TO BE

STRAIGHTENED.

IT MAY TAKE SOME TIME, BUT

YOU'RE GOING TO BE

COMPLETELY HEALED.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE WONDERING, IS ANY OF

THIS TRUE, IS GOD TRUE?

IS THIS FOR ME?

AND GOD JUST WANTS TO SPEAK

TO YOU IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR

CIRCUMSTANCE.

RIGHT NOW YOU'RE IN A

BRACE.

AND IT IS ALL AROUND YOUR

HEAD.

I THINK THEY CALL IT A

HALO.

AND YOU'VE GOT SCREWS THAT

ARE CAUSING GREAT DISCOMFORT

FOR YOU ON BOTH OF THE

TEMPLES.

GOD SEES YOU RIGHT NOW, AND

HE IS DOING A WONDERFUL

MIRACLE FOR YOU.

YOU'RE GOING TO GET UP OUT

OF THAT HOSPITAL BED.

YOU'RE GOING TO WALK AGAIN.

YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE LIFE

AGAIN BECAUSE HE HAS COME

JUST FOR YOU.

AND HIS PRESENCE IS RIGHT

THERE WITH YOU.

NOW, JUST REJOICE IN WHAT HE

IS DOING.

IT IS JUST OVERFLOWING JOY

COMING TO YOU RIGHT NOW.

FOR WHAT HE IS DOING, IT IS

A MARVELOUS MIRACLE

HAPPENING TO YOU.

JUST PRAISE HIM FOR IT AND

RECEIVE IT NOW.

Terry: AND FOR PEOPLE

WITH CHRONIC PAIN, THE

SPIRIT OF THE LORD JUST

SINGS OVER YOU NOW, AS HE IS

SETTING YOU FREE FROM THAT.

JUST RECEIVE IT IN THE

PEACEFUL QUIET OF YOUR

HEART.

JUST RECEIVE IT.

Gordon: LORD, WE THANK

YOU.

WE THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT

YOU'VE DONE.

FOR ALL THAT YOU'VE

ACCOMPLISHED ON THE CROSS.

WE RECEIVE IT NOW.

IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN TOUCHED BY

GOD, WE WANT TO SHARE IN

YOUR GOOD REPORT.

SO JUST GIVE US A CALL.

STILL AHEAD, HOW VIEWERS

LIKE YOU BROUGHT HOPE TO AN

ABANDONED BOY, RIGHT AFTER

THIS.

Terry: IMAGINE BEING 10

YEARS OLD AND HAVING NO ONE

TO LOOK OUT FOR YOU.

THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED TO A

YOUNG BOY IN VIETNAM.

BUT HIS STORY HAS A HAPPY

ENDING, AND IT IS ALL THANKS

TO VIEWERS LIKE YOU.

AFTER HIS FATHER DIED AND

HIS MOTHER ABANDONED HIM,

10-YEAR-OLD HIH WENT TO LIVE

AT A NEIGHBOR'S HOUSE.

IN ORDER TO EARN HIS KEEP,

HE TOOK CARE OF THE

NEIGHBOR'S COWS.

IT WAS FUN TO RIDE ON THE

BACK OF THE COWS.

BUT THEN ONE OF THEM GOT

LOST IN THE JUNGLE.

SO I SPENT ALL DAY LOOKING

FOR IT.

I WAS SO WORRIED THAT I

WOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR IT.

Terry: HIH FOUND THE

MISSING COW, BUT THINGS

WEREN'T GOING WELL WHERE HE

LIVED.

HE FACED CONSTANT HUNGER AND

HAD TO DROP OUT OF SCHOOL TO

WATCH THE COWS.

THERE WAS NOT ENOUGH FOOD

AT THE HOUSE.

WHEN I WAS STARVING, I WOULD

CLIMB UP A TREE TO GET SOME

FRUIT TO EAT.

Terry: THEN A

CHILDREN'S HOME SUPPORTED BY

CBN'S "ORPHANS' PROMISE"

HEARD ABOUT THE BOY AND TOOK

HIM IN.

HE NO LONGER MISSES MEALS

AND HE WAS ABLE TO RETURN TO

SCHOOL.

THE FIRST DAY BACK TO

SCHOOL, I FELT GOOD IN MY

NEW CLOTHES, NEW SHOES, AND

NEW SCHOOL BAG.

I'M SO HAPPY LIVING HERE AT

THE CHILDREN'S HOME WITH MY

NEW FRIENDS.

Terry: HIH FEELS LIKES

HE IS PART OF A FAMILY

AGAIN.

I LOVE LISTENING TO THE

STORIES THAT OUR HOUSE

PARENT TELLS US.

HE IS LIKE A FATHER TO ME

AND TAKES CARE OF ME.

THANK YOU, CBN, FOR HELPING

ME.

Terry: GOD PUTS THE

LONELY IN FAMILIES, AND HE

HAS DONE THAT FOR HIH.

THAT'S JUST ONE OF THE

PLACES THAT "ORPHANS'

PROMISE" IS WORKING AROUND

THE WORLD.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE A

PART OF THAT, WE INVITE YOU

TO JOIN US.

OUR NUMBER IS

1-888-777-1999.

OR YOU CAN GIVE BY LOGGING

ON TO CBN.COM.

GORDON?

Gordon: WE LEAVE YOU

WITH THESE WORDS FROM FAITH:

"FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF

THINGS HOPED FOR, THE

EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT

SEEN."

MAY YOUR DAY BE FILLED WITH

JOY AND HOPE AND THE FAITH

THAT COMES FROM KNOWING AND

LOOKING AT JESUS CHRIST.

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN.
