Watch the 700 Club Canada for April 8, 2014 Read Transcript


HELLO, I'M BRIAN WARREN

AND I'M LAURA LYNN TYLER

THOMPSON. WELCOME TO THE

SHOW.

LAURA LYNN, YOU KNOW

HOW MUCH I LOVE ASKING YOU

QUESTIONS.

YES.

AND I KNOW YOU CANADA,

LOVE WHEN I ASK YOU THESE

QUESTIONS AS WELL BECAUSE AS

SHE'S ANSWERING THE QUESTION

I WANT YOU TO ANSWER THE

SAME QUESTION THAT I'M

ASKING HER. NOW THIS IS THE

QUESTION. ARE YOU READY?

BRACE YOURSELF.

OKAY.

WHEN HAVE YOU EVER

FELT POWERLESS? YOU ANSWER

THAT TOO.

POWERLESS?

POWERLESS.

I THINK WHEN YOUFIND

YOURSELF IN A POSITION WHERE

SOMEONE ELSE HAS GOT

AUTHORITY OR IS DOMINEERING

OR HAS GOT A LOT OF POWER IN

YOUR LIFE AND THEY ARE

BEHAVING IN A WAY THAT IS NOT

IN A WAY.

HELPFUL. I'M GUARDING MY

WORDS.

YOU KNOW WHAT? I FELT

POWERLESS ONCE WHEN WE

HAD OUR DAUGHTER BECAUSE I

WAS WATCHING KAREN FOR 27

HOURS, NOT THAT I'M TALKING

OUT OF CLASS OR ANYTHING.

AND YOU CAN'T HAVE THE

BABY FOR HER.

I COULDN'T DO IT FOR HER. I

SAID DOC, AFTER TEN HOURS,

GIVE HER SOMETHING FOR ME

PLEASE. I CAN'T TAKE IT ANY

LONGER.

YES.

AND I FELT REALLY POWERLESS

AT THAT MOMENT. I SAID, YOU

KNOW WHAT? THANK GOD I'M

A MAN.

WELL, AND YOU'RE A MAN IN

A HOME WITH TWO WOMEN? I

GUESS YOU MIGHT FEEL A LITTLE

POWERLESS.

A LITTLE POWERLESS THERE

TOO, NOW YOU'RE GIVING A

LITTLE BIT COUNSELING LAURA

LYNN, PRAY FOR ME.

I KNOW YOU'RE A POWERFUL

MAN.

ON TODAY'S SHOW, FOUR

PEOPLE WHO THOUGHT THAT

THEY WERE TRAPPED IN

POWERLESS SITUATIONS BUT

RECEIVED MIRACULOUS HELP

FROM A HIGHER POWER.

ABIGAIL COLEY SHARES

WHAT HAPPENED TO HER AFTER

YEARS OF BATTLING SEVERE PAIN

IN HER ABDOMEN. DOCTORS HAD

DONE EVERYTHING THEY COULD

BUT HER SITUATION KEPT GETTING

WORSE. WITH NOTHING ELSE TO

HOLD ONTO, ABIGAIL HELD ONTO

HER FAITH.

AND TEN YEARS AGO, CHRIS

HELM'S LIFE WAS ALTERED ONCE

HE EXPERIENCED A SEVERE

CHEST PAIN, UNABLE TO LIVE THE

ACTIVE LIFESTYLE HE WAS USED

TO. CHRIS SEARCHED FOR

HEALING FROM AN UNLIKELY

SOURCE.

ALSO, PROFESSIONAL

BASEBALL PLAYER JEROMY AFFALT

DISCUSSES THE PAINFUL DAY THAT

HE CHOSE TO WALK AWAY FROM

BASEBALL AND WHAT CHANGED

HIS HEART TO BRING HIM BACK.

BUT FIRST, BLINDED IN ONE

EYE AND FEARING THAT SHE WAS

GOING TO LOSE HER SIGHT

COMPLETELY. SONIA BAUER

LOOKS FOR A MIRACLE.

I START TO REALIZE THAT THERE

SOMETHING WRONG WITH MY

RIGHT EYE AND I THINK, WHAT

COULD BE GOING ON WITH IT?

SO, WHEN I GO IN THE

BATHROOM I REALIZED THE LIGHT

BOTHERED ME A LOT AND THEN

ALSO WHEN I GO OUT IN THE

THE SUN, I THOUGHT THIS IS

REALLY WEIRD, I'M REALLY HAVING

PROBLEMS SEEING. I WAS SO

UNCOMFORTABLE, IT WAS LIKE A

FOG OVER MY EYE AND IT'S

JUST LIKE YOU WANT TO RUB

YOUR EYE AND GET RID OF IT.

SO, DEFINITELY, YOU KNOW

SOMETHING WAS REALLY WRONG.

SO I TAKE IT TO THE LORD AND I

KEPT PRAYING ABOUT IT, PRAYING

ABOUT IT. TELL THE LORD AS

OFTEN AS I CAN. AND I

REMEMBER ONE MORNING I

SAID LORD, NOT MY EYE SIGHT.

I HAVE TO HAVE MY SIGHT

BECAUSE I LOVE READ YOUR

WORD AND I LOVE TO WRITE

LETTERS. LORD, FOR THOSE TWO

PURPOSE PLEASE DON'T LET ME

LOSE MY SIGHT. THEN I

THOUGHT, WHY DON'T I ASK

FRIENDS IN CHURCH AND OTHER

PLACES FOR PRAYER? WELL I DID

AND FEW FRIENDS PRAY WITH ME

BUT I STILL HAVE THE PROBLEMS.

AND SO PRAYING ABOUT IT AND

ASKING THE LORD IT DOESN'T

SEEMS TO MAKE ANY

DIFFERENCE. SO AFTER A

PERIOD OF TIME I REALIZED IT

IS GETTING WORSE. I HAVE TO GO

SEE AN EYE DOCTOR. SO I WENT

TO SEE A DOCTOR WHO SAID TO

ME I'M SORRY, BUT I HAVE TO

LET YOU KNOW THAT YOUR EYE,

YOU'RE LOSING SITE. AND I

THOUGHT, NO. SO I WENT TO

ANOTHER DOCTOR AND I DID

NOT SAY THAT I'VE ALREADY SEEN

SOMEONE ELSE. BUT COULD YOU

CHECK ME OVER AND HE SAID

UNFORTUNATELY YOU'RE LOSING

SITE. SO HE CONFIRMED WHAT

THE FIRST DOCTOR SAID. THERE

WON'T BE ANY HELP FOR IT

BECAUSE NO DOCTOR CAN

CORRECT IT. IT WAS SOMETHING

THAT WOULD GRADUALLY GET

WORSE AND WORSE. I WAS

GOING AROUND SAYING LORD, IF

THIS IS HAPPENING TO MY RIGHT,

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE LEFT

BECAUSE THERE'S A LOT OF

STRAIN ON THAT ONE. AND IF

THEN LATER ON IF BOTH OF THEM

WILL BECOME THE SAME, OR

WORSE AND THEN LATER ON

I LOSE MY SITE COMPLETELY?

NO LORD, PLEASE, MY DESIRE

AND MY REQUEST WOULD BE

THAT YOU RESTORE MY SITE.

I WAS SITTING ON THE COUCH

AND WE WERE WATCHING THE

700 CLUB. AND TERRY SAID

THERE IS SOMEONE THAT'S

HAVING SOME PROBLEM WITH

THEIR RIGHT EYE. YOU'RE LOSING

YOUR SITE AND YOU'VE BEEN

CALLING OUT TO THE LORD, LORD

PLEASE HEAL ME. AND THE

LORD IS GOING TO HEAL YOU

RIGHT NOW IF YOU JUST PUT YOUR

RIGHT HAND OVER YOUR RIGHT

EYE AND IF YOU JUST PRAY WITH

ME, THE LORD IS GOING TO TAKE

THIS AWAY. THE LORD IS GOING

TO ANSWER YOUR PRAYER. AND I

SAID TO MY HUBBY, COULD THAT

BE ME? I'M NOT SURE BUT

THEN I YELL LORD, I DON'T

KNOW IF THAT'S ME OR

SOMEONE ELSE, NEVER THE

LESS, I AM ONE OF THEM AND

I NEED HELP. SO REMEMBER

ME AND I ACCEPTED THAT

IT'S ME, I AM ONE OF THEM.

A FEW DAYS AFTER I STARTED

TO REALIZE MY EYE IS CLEARING

UP BUT I DID NOT KNOW IT WAS

CLEARING UP, IT WAS BETTER.

THE LORD HEALED MY EYES

BECAUSE WHEN I GO IN THE

BATHROOM I GO OH LORD,

I CAN LOOK AT THE LIGHT AGAIN,

NO PROBLEM. AND SO I WENT

OUT FOR A WALK AND I GO

AND EVEN THE SUNLIGHT IS SO

BEAUTIFUL. I WAS SAYING LORD,

WHAT SHOULD I DO FIRST? RUN?

DANCE? JUMP? I DIDN'T KNOW

I WANTED TO DO ALL AT THE

SAME TIME BUT I WANT TO GIVE

HIM ALL THE GLORY, YES.

THERE'S SO MANY TIMES I'VE

GONE TO THE LORD FOR PEOPLE

MY FAMILY, MYSELF, AND GOD

ANSWERED LIKE THIS, AND THERE

ARE TIMES AGAIN WHEN IT TAKES

A LITTLE WHILE. AND THEN

THERE'S TIME WHEN I TAKE A

YEAR OR SO AND SOMETIMES I

JUST SAY OKAY, LORD, IT'S ALL IN

YOUR HANDS. I'VE SEEN GOD

WORK SO MANY MIRACLES

IN MY LIFE, SO MANY THEY

CAN'T COUNT. AND NOT JUST

FOR ME BUT MIRACLES FOR

OTHERS THAT I PRAYED FOR,

SOMETIMES BEFORE I FINISH

PRAY, GOD HAS ANSWER. IT'S

SO WONDERFUL. THE ANOINTING

OF THE LORD IS SO GREAT. AND

HE CONFIRMED TO YOU, YOU CAN

JUST TELL HE'S HERE BECAUSE

YOU SENSE IT AND YOU FELT, YOU

KNOW, YOU JUST KNOW IT? AND

BUBBLY, THAT'S THE ONLY THING I

CAN SAY IS BUBBLY.

UP NEXT ON THE 700 CLUB

CANADA.

EVER SINCE I WAS A

TEENAGER I HAD HEAVY

MENSTRUATION, HEAVY

BLEEDING, AND OF COURSE I

JUST MEDICATE.

THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE,

I HAVE HAD A DREAM.

THROUGHOUT TIME,

IN MY SLEEP, THE CROSS

OF GOD APPEARED.

AND EVEN TODAY.

I SAW IT HAPPEN A

COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO. I

HAD THIS DREAM BEFORE.

GOD SPEAKS TO US THROUGH

DREAMS.

WHAT DO YOUR DREAMS

MEAN? IS GOD TRYING TO

TELL YOU SOMETHING?

FIND OUT WHAT TO DO

WHEN GOD SPEAKS TO YOU. IN

VISIONS OF THE NIGHT.

ABIGAIL COLEY HAD ALWAYS

BELIEVED IN GOD. SHE GREW

UP IN THE CHURCH AND PRAYER

WAS AN IMPORTANT PART OF HER

LIFE. BUT IN HER EARLY TWENTIES

HER FAITH WAS TESTED IN WAY

SHE NEVER COULD HAVE

IMAGINED.

I BASICALLY LOST MY JOB ONE

MONTH AFTER I CAME BACK

FROM SICK LEAVE. EVER SINCE

I WAS A TEENAGER I HAD HEAVY

MENSTRUATION, HEAVY

BLEEDING AND, OF COURSE, I JUST

MEDICATE. JUST TAKE PAIN

KILLERS. I COULD NOT FUNCTION

WITHOUT PAIN MEDICINE FOR

ABOUT MORE THAN 12 YEARS.

THAT WAS JUST LIFE AS USUAL FOR

ME. I HAD A DAY WHERE I WAS

VERY LOW IN MY SPIRIT. AND I

SAY GOD, I DON'T UNDERSTAND. I

LIVE BY MYSELF, TALKING CARE OF

MYSELF. I AM, I LOST THAT

SOURCE OF INCOME. MY FAITH,

IS THERE SOMETHING I'M NOT

DOING THAT WE NEED TO DO?

AM I NOT HEARING YOU WELL?

AM I NOT PRAYING ENOUGH?

WHAT IS IT LORD? YOU ARE VERY

SILENT AND I NEED TO HEAR YOU.

BECAUSE I CANNOT GO ON LIKE

THIS.

ABIGAIL SOUGHT HELP FROM

DOCTORS AND EXPERTS ON HER

CONDITION, BUT NO ONE COULD

PROVIDE AN ANSWER. THE

STRESS ON HER BODY BEGAN

TO TAKE ITS TOLL AS SHE WAS

JOBLESS AND SOON TO BE

HOMELESS. AND THAT'S WHEN

HER HEALTH TOOK A TURN FOR THE

WORSE.

YOU KNOW, AS A WOMAN,

WHEN SOMETHING IS WRONG

WITH YOUR BODY, YOU SENSE IT.

SO I SENSE THAT SOMETHING

WAS WRONG WITH MY BODY. I

WAS SCARED OF COURSE, SO I

WENT TO THE DOCTOR AND THEY

SEND ME FOR EXAMS AND THEY

DISCOVERED FIBROIDS. SO, ONE

OF THEM WAS AS BIG AS A

GRAPEFRUIT. THE OTHER ONE

WAS AS BIG AS AN ORANGE. OF

COURSE, I SAY GOD HEAR ME,

BUT I REALLY DIDN'T HAVE THE

FAITH TO BELIEVE THAT GOD CAN

MAKE THOSE FIBROIDS

DISAPPEAR. SO, I OPTED FOR

SURGERY. THE DOCTOR TALKED TO

ME AND HE SAID I HAVE A

CONDITION CALLED

ENDOMETRIOSIS. THE LINING OF

MY UTERUS JUST MULTIPLIES,

JUST KEEP ON GROWING, SO I

HAVE A LOT OF SCAR TISSUE, AND

THAT'S THE REASON WHY I HAVE

THOSE HEAVY BLEEDING ALL

THESE YEARS. EVEN THOUGH

THE FIBROIDS WERE REMOVED,

I JUST KEEP ON BLEEDING. TWO

OR THREE CYCLES WITHIN THE

SAME MONTH. AND IT WAS JUST

TOO MUCH FOR ME. AND I SAY,

LORD, IF THIS IS WHAT MY LIFE IS

GOING TO BE, YOU CAN TAKE ME

HOME. I DON'T WANT TO LIVE

LIKE THAT. RIGHT NOW MY FAITH

IS WEAK AND I NEED SOMEBODY

TO PRAY FOR ME BECAUSE RIGHT

NOW I CANNOT EVEN PRAY FOR

MYSELF. SO WHEN I CAME TO

CHURCH, I ASKED PASTOR JAY

AFTER THE BIBLE STUDY, I TOLD

HIM WHAT I WAS GOING

THROUGH. TO PRAY FOR ME AND

WE WENT INTO A ROOM AND HE

PRAYED FOR ME. HE PRAY A

VERY SIMPLE PRAYER OF

HEALING. AND HE TOLD ME TO

RECEIVE MY HEALING THAT I AM

HEALED. AND I WALKED OUT OF

THAT ROOM HOLDING ON TO THAT

WORD THAT BY HIS STRIPES

I AM HEALED.

ABIGAIL'S PASTOR SHOWED

HER A BIBLE VERSE THAT ROCKED

HER FAITH AND GAVE HER THE

CONFIDENCE TO TRUST GOD FOR A

MIRACLE ONCE AGAIN. THIS IS

WHAT HE SHARED: NOW A

WOMAN HAVING A FLOW OF

BLOOD FOR TWELVE YEARS, WHO

HAD SPENT ALL HER LIVELIHOOD

ON PHYSICIANS AND COULD NOT

BE HEALED BY ANY, CAME FROM

BEHIND AND TOUCHED THE

BORDER OF HIS GARMENT. AND

IMMEDIATELY HER FLOW OF

BLOOD STOPPED.

WEEKS LATER MY CYCLE

CAME BACK AND I DIDN'T

EVEN NOTICE IT. I WAS LIKE

WAIT A MINUTE, I'M HAVING

MY CYCLE AND I DON'T HAVE TO

TAKE PAIN MEDICINE. AND I

SAY, COULD THIS BE HAPPENING?

I'M HEALED? I'VE NEVER TAKEN

PAIN KILLERS ANYMORE, AND THE

BLEEDING, EXCESSIVE BLEEDING

HAS STOPPED. I SAY, THIS IS FOR

REAL, I'M HEALED. AND I KEEP

TALKING TO MYSELF. I SAY, I AM

HEALED. I AM REALLY HEALED.

AND I SAY, THANK YOU JESUS. I

CANNOT' BELIEVE I'M HEALED.

NOW EVERY MONTH INSTEAD OF

DREADING IT'S A REMINDER OF

GOD'S HEALING TOUCH AND

GOD'S GRACE. EVERY MONTH

I'M REMINDED OF THAT. JUST

LAST MONTH I WAS LIKE, THANK

YOU JESUS, THANK YOU FOR

HEALING ME. I'M FREE. IT'S LIKE

I ALWAYS PRAYED ABOUT THIS

KIND OF FREEDOM AND NOW I

REALIZE THAT I HAVE IT. IT'S NOT

JUST A NEW BEGINNING. IT'S A

TRANSFORMATION AND I KNOW

THAT FROM HERE IT CAN ONLY GO

FROM FAITH TO FAITH, FROM GLORY

TO GLORY.

UP NEXT ON THE 700 CLUB

CANADA.

I WAS ANGRY BECAUSE WE

LOST ALL THE TIME. I WAS ANGRY

BECAUSE I DIDN'T KNOW IF I WAS

GOING TO BE A STARTER, OR A

RELIEVER AND I JUST HAD NO

IDEA WHO I WAS IN BASEBALL

AND IT GOT TO APPOINT WHERE I

WANTED TO QUIT.

TOO OFTEN WE CARRY

BAGGAGE FROM OUR PAST.

YOU KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE. IT

AFFECTS EVERYTHING AND

EVERYONE IN OUR LIVES. IT'S

ALWAYS THERE WEIGHING US

DOWN AND KEEPING US FROM

ACHIEVING TRUE HAPPINESS.

BUT DO YOU KNOW GOD NEVER

MEANT FOR US TO BE TRAPPED IN

THE PAST? YOU CAN BE FREE OF

YOUR BAGGAGE. LEARN HOW

GOD'S FORGIVENESS LEADS TO

CHANGED LIVES AND NEW

BEGINNINGS. CALL THE 700

CLUB.

GETTING DRAFTED

BY A MAJOR LEAGUE CLUB OUT OF

HIGH SCHOOL IS EVERY PITCHER'S

DREAM. FOR JEREMY IT WAS A

REALITY.

BASEBALL IS SOMETHING I

WAS NATURALLY GOOD AT.

I LIKED HITTING, I LIKED PITCHIG

I LIKED PLAYING IN THE

OUTFIELD, I LIKED PLAYING

FIRST BASE. I JUST LIKED THE

WHOLE ASPECT OF BASEBALL.

CLIMBING THROUGH KANSAS

ROYALS FARM SYSTEM, IT DIDN'T

TAKE LONG TO GET THE CALL.

I GOT TO THE BIG LEAGUES AT A

REALLY YOUNG AGE, 22. THEY

WANTED ME TO BE IN TRIPLE

A STARTING, GETTING SOME

MORE EXPERIENCE BUT THEY

DIDN'T HAVE A CHOICE, I THREW

SO WELL IN SPRING THEY WERE

GOING WITH YOUTH MOVEMENT.

AND SO THEY WANTED ME TO

LEARN AT THE BIG LEAGUE LEVEL.

KANSAS CITY PROVED TO BE

TOO MUCH TOO SOON. AND THE

FRUSTRATION OF INJURIES AND A

LOSING SEASON USHERED

JEREMY BACK TO A FAMILIAR

EMOTION. I WAS ANGRY

BECAUSE WE LOST ALL THE TIME

AND I DIDN'T KNOW IF I WAS

GOING TO BE A STARTER OR

RELIEVER. I DIDN'T KNOW WHO I

WAS IN BASEBALL. GOT TO A

POINT I WANTED TO QUIT.

THE LAST TIME HE EXPERIENCEDH

ANGER WAS

YEARS EARLIER IN SPOKANE HIGH

SCHOOL. SON OF MILITARY CAREER

MAN, JEREMY WAS UPSET TO

ATTEND ANOTHER NEW SCHOOL.

MY HIGH SCHOOL YEARS

WERE VERY DIFFICULT WHEN IT

CAME TO AUTHORITY ISSUES. ALL

THE PENT UP ANGER EXPLODED

AND I BECAME VERY REBELLIOUS.

WHEN I WOULD DO SOMETHING

IN RAGE, EVERYBODY WOULD

TURN THEIR ATTENTION TO ME.

MY VOICE RAISED AND I GOT

LOUD. I WANTED TO CONTROL THE

SITUATION AND I COULD. IT WAS

WHY I ENJOYED SPORTS.

JEREMY'S HOT HEADEDNESS

EVENTUALLY THREATENED HIS

PLAYING TIME ON HIS CHRISTIAN

SCHOOLS BASKETBALL TEAM,

SO HE TIME. HE BEGAN TO GET

SERIOUS ABOUT HIS

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS.

I MORE SO STARTED STUDYING

THE BIBLE BECAUSE I WAS

SCARED TO NOT PLAY BASKETBALL.

AND I REMEMBER THE BIBLE

COMING ALIVE FOR ME AND

READING SCRIPTURE, AND

UNDERSTANDING WHAT IT

MEANT AND JUST SEEING JESUS

BECOME ALIVE AND PART OF THE

REASON HE DIED, HE KNEW

JEREMY IN 2,000 YEARS WOULD

BE A REBELLIOUS KID AND LOVED

ME ENOUGH TO DIE FOR ME.

THAT HIGH SCHOOL

TRANSFORMATION AND DEVOTED

WIFE HELPED JEREMY FIND THE

STRENGTH TO PULL THROUGH HIS

KANSAS CITY BLUES.

I REMEMBER SITTING ON MY

COUNTER CRYING TO LARISA. I

DON'T WANT TO PLAY ANYMORE.

I SAID THAT IS NOT AN

OPTION. I KNOW IT IS TOUGH. IT

WILL BE OKAY. WE WILL GET

THERE AND IT WILL BE OKAY.

RIGHT NOW IT IS HARD. IT IS NOT

GOING TO BE LIKE THIS FOREVER.

I REMEMBER PRAYING,

SAYING IF YOU WANT ME TO

PLAY, TRADE ME.

AT THE MID-SEASON TRADE

JEREMY GOT A FRESH START IN

COLORADO.

I REMEMBER TELLING MY

WIFE SAYING WE GOT TRADED TO

COLORADO. AND THE

EXCITEMENT WE FELT JUST FOR A

NEW START.

IT JUST MADE SENSE.

THAT THAT'S WHERE WE WERE

MEANT TO BE GOING.

IN 2007, I WAS PRAYING FOR

THE SEASON. I SAID GOD YOU

HAVE GIVEN ME ANOTHER YEAR

TO PLAY. IF ALL IT IS TO GO OUTN

FRONT OF 50,000 PEOPLE TO BE

CHEERED OR BOOED, BASED ON

HOW YOU DID THAT DAY. THERE

WASN'T A LOT OF FULFILLMENT IN

SUCCEEDING IF THAT IS ALL I WAS

DOING IT FOR.

THEN JEREMY TEAMED UP

WITH A TEAMMATE TO START A

MINISTRY TO FEED THE

HUNGRY.

I REMEMBER THE GAME

PLAN. AND RIGHT NOW MY I

WILL FINANCIALLY BACK YOU

BECAUSE I NEED TO HAVE A

REASON TO KEEP PLAYING THIS

GAME. FINANCES ARE PRETTY

GOOD, STILL A SHALLOW GAME IF I

DON'T HAVE A REASON TO DO IT. I

GOT TO HELP START THIS FOOD

INITIATIVE. IT WAS DOING WELL

AND I WAS FINALLY PITCHING FOR

A PURPOSE. THERE WAS A

REASON IS WAS ON THAT FIELD.

THAT IS BROUGHT JOY ON THE

FIELD FOR ME. I HAD THE BEST

YEAR EVER. WENT TO THE WORLD

SERIES, FIRST TIME COLORADO

WENT, FIRST TIME I WENT I WAS

ON CLOUD NINE. I ENJOYED

GOING TO THE PARK EVERYDAY

SINCE COMING TO SAN

FRANCISCO GIANTS IN 2009,

JEREMY HAS BEEN PART OF TWO

WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONSHIP

TEAMS BUT REMAINED

GROUNDED WHY GOD HAD HIM

IN THE GAME.

I TRULY BELIEVE I HAVE BEEN

GIVEN THIS PLATFORM FOR A

REASON, NOT FOR SEVEN HOMES

AND TEN CARS, AND SO MUCH

MONEY I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO

DO WITH BUT JUST SPEND IT ON

MYSELF. I BELIEVE HE HAS

GIVEN US MONEY BECAUSE HE

IS ASKING ME TO ESTABLISH THIS

COVENANT. FOR ME THE GOSPEL

IS GOOD NEWS.

WE HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN

BASEBALL IS THE TOOL, CATALYST,

PLATFORM FOR SOMETHING

BIGGER IN THE MIDST OF HAVING

KIDS, PLAYING BASEBALL, THE

CRAZY SCHEDULE. WE HAVE

KEPT OUR FOCUS. THIS IS WHERE

WE ARE MEANT TO BE NOW.

THERE IS SOME WHERE WE ARE

GOING.

WHAT A JOB BY JEREMY.

I DO BELIEVE WHEN YOU DO

MATTHEW 25, IN WHICH I STAND

ON WHEN YOU FEED THE LEAST

OF THESE, WHEN YOU CLOTHE

THE LEAST OF THIS AND GIVE

WATER AND HOUSE AND VISIT

THE LEAST OF THESE IN PRISON,

YOU'RE VISITING, CLOTHING,

HOUSING, GIVING WATER TO

JESUS HIMSELF, THAT IS WHAT I

HAVE BEEN ASKED TO DO IS LOVE

MY NEIGHBOR AS MYSELF.

UP NEXT ON THE 700 CLUB

CANADA.

IT WAS SOMETHING THAT

WOULD HAPPEN MAYBE FIRST

THING IN THE MORNING OR

TAKING A BREATH OF COLD

AIR AND THEN THE REST OF THE

23 HOURS WERE FINE.

FROM EMPERORS, PHAROS,

AND KINGS.

GOD HAS BEEN ALWAYS

THROUGH THE AGES SPEAKING

TO PEOPLE THROUGH DREAMS

AND VISIONS.

TO SCIENTISTS, MUSICIANS,

AND EVEN CHILDREN.

I'VE HAD THIS DREAM

BEFORE. I SAW IT HAPPEN

A COUPLE WEEKS AGO, I HAD

THIS DREAM BEFORE.

SEE THE DREAMS THAT

CHANGED OUT FUTURE AND

LEARN WHAT TO DO WHEN

GOD SPEAKS TO YOU. VISIONS

OF THE NIGHT, AVAILABLE NOW.

THIS IS LAP SEVEN FOR

CHRIS HELM. ON AN AVERAGE

MORNING SHE DOES 70 BEFORE

MANY FINISH THEIR FIRST CUP OF

COFFEE.

I USUALLY GET UP PRETTY

EARLY IN THE MORNING, SPEND A

LITTLE TIME WITH MY HUSBAND,

AND THEN WE WILL GO SPEND AN

HOUR EITHER TAKING A 5-MILE

WALK, DOING THE ELLIPTICAL, OR

SWIMMING 70 TO 100 LAPS. I

TRY TO GET AT LEAST AN HOUR OF

CARDIO SIX DAYS A WEEK.

CHRIS HAS ALWAYS TAKEN

PRIDE IN STAYING IN SHAPE. BUT

THERE WAS A TIME THE EXERCISE

COULD HAVE KILLED HER. SHE

REMEMBERS THE FIRST TIME

THERE WAS A SIGN OF

TROUBLE.

MY HUSBAND AND I WERE

OUT TAKING A WALK. IT WAS A FALL

NIGHT. AND I ROUNDED A CORNER

AND I DOUBLED OVER WITH

HORRIBLE CHEST PAIN. AND WE

BOTH JUST LOOKED AT EACH

OTHER AND SAID, 'WHAT WAS

THAT?' AND IT DIED DOWN AND

JUST CONTINUED WITH THE WALK.

CHRIS WAS RELUCTANT TO SEE

A DOCTOR. SHE LIVED WITH THE

PAIN, WHICH AT THIS POINT WAS

INFREQUENT.

IT WAS SOMETHING THAT

WOULD HAPPEN MAYBE FIRST

THING IN THE MORNING OR

TAKING A BREATH OF COLD AIR,

AND THEN THE REST OF THE 23

HOURS WERE FINE.

BUT OVER THE COURSE OF 10

YEARS THE PROBLEM GREW

WORSE, AND COULD NO LONGER

BE IGNORED.

IT WAS HAPPENING MORE

OFTEN, IT WAS BECOMING

STRONGER, THE INTENSITY WAS

STRONGER. AND IT WAS MORE

LIFE INTERRUPTING.

FINALLY CHRIS WENT TO THE

DOCTOR, AND WAS DIAGNOSED

WITH VASOSPASTIC ANGINA

DISORDER, A CONDITION WHERE

THE BLOOD VESSELS TIGHTEN

AROUND THE HEART.

I CAME HOME AND READ

ABOUT IT AND WAS SHOCKED TO

FIND OUT THAT ONE OF THESE

EPISODES COULD ACTUALLY CAUSE

A MASSIVE HEART ATTACK AND

COULD KILL ME.

CHRIS WAS TOLD SHE'D JUST

HAVE TO LIVE WITH IT. AND

THAT'S WHAT SHE DID FOR THE

NEXT TWO YEARS.

HE TOLD ME TO KEEP UP MY

EXERCISE. HE SAID TO START

WITH 10 MINUTES OF VERY EASY

EXERCISE, TO GO VERY SLOWLY

AND TO BASICALLY GO HOME AND

LIVE YOUR LIFE. 'I CAN GIVE YOU

SOME MEDICATION FOR THE

PAIN, WHICH I REJECTED BUT HE

SAID THERE'S NOTHING I CAN DO

FOR YOU. JUST GO HOME AND

LIVE YOUR LIFE.

ONE MORNING AFTER A WORK

OUT, CHRIS WAS WATCHING THE

700 CLUB, SOMETHING SHE'S

DONE FAITHFULLY FOR THE PAST

30 YEARS.

AND I USUALLY ALWAYS STOP

AND PRAY WHEN PAT'S PRAYING

FOR PEOPLE OR TERRY'S PRAYING

FOR PEOPLE. AND PAT STOPPED

AND HE SAID, 'THE LORD'S

HEALING ALL KINDS OF HEART

CONDITIONS.' AND I THOUGHT, IT

NSTINCTIVELY THE HOLYJUST

SPIRIT SPOKE TO ME. AND I

RAISED MY HAND AND PUT MY

OTHER HAND OVER MY HEART

AND SAID, 'LORD, I'LL TAKE THAT,

I'M ACCEPTING THAT, I'M

CLAIMING THAT ONE FOR ME.'

AND WENT ABOUT MY BUSINESS.

MONTHS WENT BY. NO PAIN.

GONE. COMPLETELY HEALED.

IT'S BEEN A YEAR NOW AND

CHRIS TELLS HER DOCTOR SHE'S

STILL SYMPTOM FREE. SHE'S ALSO

BACK TO DOING THE THINGS SHE

ENJOYS, WORKOUTS ON THE

ELLIPTICAL, LAPS IN THE POOL AND

MORNING WALKS WITH HER

HUSBAND DAVE. I'M LIVING MY

LIFE. BUT I'M LIVING IT A LOT

BETTER WITHOUT PAIN. AND

KNOWING THAT THE LORD HAD

HEALED ME AND IT'S JUST

ANOTHER TESTIMONY TO HIM.

LAURA LYNN, THAT'S WHAT

I LOVE BECAUSE JESUS SPEAKS

TODAY. I HOPE YOU'RE

ENCOURAGED OUT THERE AS WELL

THAT NO MATTER WHAT YOU'RE

GOING THROUGH, GOD CAN

CHANGE YOUR CIRCUMSTANCE

AND HE CAN DELIVER YOU, HE

CAN HEAL YOU, AND HE CAN

SAVE YOU. IT DOESN'T MATTER

WHERE YOU ARE, JUST CRY OUT.

JERAMIAH 33 AND 3 DAYS CRY

OUT AND HE WILL ANSWER AND

SHOW YOU GREAT AND MIGHTY

THINGS. I LOVE HOW SONIA

SAID I JUST FEEL SO BUBBLY.
