GORDAN: A YOUNG DRUG DEALER

WITH NO WAY OUT.

SO MY PLAN WAS TO TRY TO FIND

A GUN.

YOU KNOW, TO SHOOT BACK AT THESE

GUYS TRYING TO GET ME SHS YOU

KNOW, UM, WHEN I SAW IT WAS THE

POLICE COMING IN, I DIDN'T KNOW

WHAT TO DO.

GORDAN: WHY HIS ARREST

BROUGHT HIM FREEDOM ON TODAY'S

"700 CLUB." ON SEF "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE" WE USE TECHNOLOGY

TO PRAY AND EXPLORE TOPICS THAT

MATTER TO YOU.

WATCH WHAT GOD IS DOING IN THE

WORLD TODAY.

GORDAN: WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

SEAN HARRIS WAS A FELON AT 19.

HE WAS A MAJOR DRUG DEALER,

POSSESSED ILLEGAL FIREARMS AND

GO GAVE NO THOUGHT FOR THE LAW.

AFTER A POLICE BUST, HE CRIED

OUT TO GOD AND ASKED FOR A

SECOND CHANCE AND FOUND THAT

CHANCE IN PRISON.

THERE WERE DRUG DEALERS IN MY

NEIGHBORHOOD.

THIS GUY SOLD CRACK, THIS GUY

WEED.

THAT IS LITTLE WILLIE, THAT IS

PETEY.

IT WASN'T THE BAD GUYS.

I WAS PROBABLY ABOUT 15 OR 16.

I HAD A COUSIN GOING TO THE

UNIVERSITY.

MOST OF THE TIME I CAN STAY THE

NIGHT AT HIS PLACE AND FROM

DIFFERENT AREAS, IF THEY WANTED

TO SMOKE WEED, I KNEW WHO TO GET

THE WEED FROM.

SO GOOD TO BE ACCEPTED.

AFTER GRADUATING HIGH

SCHOOL, SHAWN HARRIS BECAME A

FULL TIME COLLEGE STUDENT AND

FULL TIME DRUG DEALER.

I FELT LIKE I WAS UNDER

CONTROL.

DURING HIS JUNIOR YEAR, THE

POLICE RAIDED SEAN'S APARTMENT.

I THOUGHT THEY WERE TRYING TO

ROB ME.

MY PLAN WAS TO TRY TO FIND A GUN

TO SHOOT BACK AT THESE GUYS

TRYING TO GET ME.

WHEN I SAW IT WAS THE POLICE, I

WAS CONFUSED.

IT REGISTERED EVERYTHING IN THE

HOUSE IS ILLEGAL.

THESE ARE THE POLICE.

SEAN WAS ARRESTED FOR DRUG

AND WEAPONS POSSESSION.

ONLY 19.

FOR IT TO END SO EARLY.

I WAS IN A COLD CELL IN THE

FETAL POSITION PRAYED THAT IF

GOD WAS REAL HE WOULD DELIVER ME

AND SHOW ME THE RIGHT WAY TO.

GO WHEN I CAME OUT ON BOND, I

COULD HAVE JUMPED BACK INTO THE

GAME DEEPER.

AN ASSOCIATE SUGGESTED

GETTING RID OF THE POLICE

INFORMANT COULD MAKE SEAN'S

CHARGES GO AWAY.

I REMEMBER VISUALIZING MYSELF

IN FRONT OF THE JUDGE, I WAS ON

TRIAL FOR MURDER.

I WAS TERRIFIED.

THAT IS WHEN I RAN OUT OF THE

HOUSE AND WALKED AROUND.

I WENT BACK TO MY HOME CHURCH,

SAW THE PASTOR'S CAR.

HE WAS STILL THERE.

WE SAT DOWN AND TALKED ABOUT.

WE PRAYED THE PRAYER OF

SALVATION.

I STARTED OUTER ---ER GANT

PRIDEFUL INDIVIDUAL.

WHILE ON BOND, SEAN COMMITTED

HIMSELF TO FAITH AND STUDIES.

I COMPLETED IN DECEMBER OF

2004.

WHEN I GRADUATED, IT WAS NOTHING

BUT GOD.

HE STILL HAD TO FACE HIS

CHARGES.

I WENT TO TRIAL JANUARY 10TH,

2005.

THE JUDGE SAID WE ARE SENDING

YOU AWAY FOR FIVE YEARS, A PART

OF ME FELT BETRAYED BY GOD.

I REALLY FELT LIKE I WAS DOING

THE RIGHT THING HAVING SERVING

YOU, TEACHING BIBLE STUDIES,

HOWEVER I AM STILL GETTING FIVE

YEARS.

JUST THAT THOUGHT ALONE

CONVICTED ME.

I WAS SERVING GOD CONDITIONALLY.

THAT IS NOT TRUE LOVE.

I CAN'T SAY I TRULY LOVE GOD IF

I AM ONLY SERVING YOU SO I CAN

GET SOMETHING OUT OF IT.

I PRAY I WOULD GET EVERYTHING HE

WANTED ME TO SEE AND PROTECT MY

FAMILY.

IN PRISON, SEAN TURNED TO HIS

FAITH FOR GUIDANCE AND

PROTECTION.

I TRIED TO ACKNOWLEDGE GOD.

THINGS WENT ALONG A LOT EASIER.

PROVERBS, 3, 5, 6, TRUST IN THE

LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, IN ALL

YOUR WAYS ACKNOWLEDGE HIM AND HE

WILL DIRECTOR PATH.

WHEN I GOT TRANSFERRED,

DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TYPE OF SITE I

WAS GOING TO BE AT, HE PROTECTED

ME THROUGH IT ALL.

SEAN SERVED OUT HIS

SENTENCED.

HE STRUGGLED TO FIND DIRECTION

FOR HIS LIFE.

OF COURSE I FINISHED SCHOOL,

BUT I DIDN'T HAVE ANY WORK

EXPERIENCE.

I HAD A FELONY ON MY RECORD.

NOBODY WOULD HIRE ME.

ONE OF THE GUYS USED TO

VOLUNTEER AT THE PRISON GOING

THROUGH PHD PROGRAM AT REGENT.

HE WAS TELLING ME ABOUT

LEADERSHIP.

I WANTED TO START MY OWN

BUSINESS.

I WROTE A NICE LONG COMPASSION

LETTER TO THE UNIVERSITY.

I WAS GAINED ADMITTANCE TO THE

UNIVERSITY.

I GRADUATED 2012 WITH 3.8 GPA.

SEAN NOW RUNS HIS OWN

BUSINESS AND USES HIS COMPANY TO

HELP OTHERS AND ALWAYS READY TO

SHARE HIS TESTIMONY.

I WANT PEOPLE TO KNOW ANYBODY

CAN CHANGE REGARDLESS OF HOW FAR

YOU HAVE FALLEN, REGARDLESS OF

HOW BAD THE SITUATION LOOKS.

SOMETIMES YOU JUST HAVE TO REACH

OUT AND STEP OUT ON FAITH AND

GOD WILL ACCEPT YOU AND RESTORE

THE YEARS AND TURN BACK ALL THAT

WRONG YOU DID AND MAKE IT RIGHT.

GORDAN: HE CAN DO THAT FOR

YOU.

HE CAN TURN BACK ALL THE WRONG

THAT YOU DID AND MAKE IT RIGHT.

HE CAN CHANGE YOU FROM YOUR

INNERMOST BEING TO THE THINGS

YOU USED TO DO, YOU DON'T DO

ANYMORE.

THE THINGS YOU LOVE TO DO, YOU

DON'T DO ANYMORE BECAUSE YOU

DON'T LOVE THEM ANYMORE.

ALL OF IT HAS BEEN REPLACED BY

HIS GLORIOUS LOVE.

AND HIS FAITH IN YOU.

NOW IN THE WORLD'S EYE, IF YOU

ARE SEAN, GAME OVER.

YOU WENT OUT THERE, YOU WERE A

DRUG DEALER, YOU HAD WEAPONS,

YOU WERE OUT ON THE STREET, WHAT

IS YOUR FUTURE IN THE WORLD'S

EYES?

IT IS EITHER YOU ARE GOING TO

DIE ON THOSE STREETS, YOU ARE

GOING TO DIE IN SOME HOTEL ROOM

IN SOME BOTCHED DEAL.

YOU ARE GOING TO DIE IN AN

INSTITUTION OR OVERDOSE.

THAT IS WHAT THE WORLD THINKS,

WHAT DOES GOT THINK?

HE SAYS I SEE A LEADER,

POTENTIAL.

I SEE SOMEBODY WHO I CAN TRUST

WHO CAN BE MY CHILD, WHO CAN BE

MY SON SO JUST GIVE ME A CHANCE.

IF YOU'LL JUST LET ME IN.

IF THAT IS YOU, IF THAT IS WHAT

YOU WANT ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS

OPEN THE DOOR OF YOUR HEART.

DON'T LET IT BE IN A JAIL CELL.

IF YOU NEED THAT TURN AROUND, DO

EXACTLY WHAT SEAN DID.

HUMBLE YOURSELF.

SAY GOD, I NEED YOU IN MY LIFE.

I NEED YOU FOR MY FAMILY.

I NEED YOU TO PROTECT ME AND BE

WITH ME.

IF YOU DO THAT, HE'LL ANSWER.

HE WON'T REJECT YOU.

HE'LL ANSWER YOU.

HE'LL GIVE YOU THE TURN AROUND

YOU ARE LOOKING FOR.

HERE IS THE PRAYER FOR YOU,

JESUS, IF YOU ARE REAL, IF WHAT

YOU DID FOR SEAN, IF YOU CAN DO

THAT FOR ME, WOULD YOU SHOW ME.

WOULD YOU SHOW UP FOR ME?

WOULD YOU FORGIVE ME?

WOULD YOU CHANGE MY HEART?

AND IF YOU PRAY THAT, AND IF YOU

MEAN IT, HE'LL ANSWER YOU.

NOW, IF YOU NEED HELP WITH THAT

PRAYER, IF THERE IS THINGS YOU

ARE WONDERING, CAN GOD FORGIVE,

WE ARE HERE FOR YOU, IT IS A

TOLL-FREE NUMBER, 888-777-1999.

HE SO LOVED ALL THE WORLD, THAT

IS YOU THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY

BEGOTTEN SON, JESUS, HE GAVE HIM

HEART, THEN YOU WOULDN'T PERISH,

BUT HAVE LIFE.

HE WANTS THAT FOR YOU.

NUMBER IS ON THE SCREEN.

WAS USING, IT IS ONE I

RECOMMEND, PROVERBS, 3:5-6,

TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR

HEART AND LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN

UNDERSTANDING AND IN ALL YOUR

WAYS, ACKNOWLEDGE HIM AND HE

SHALL DIRECT YOUR PATHS.

NOW, THERE IS A LOT TO THAT

TRUSTING IN THE LORD.

HERE IS SEAN, HE IS IN PRISON.

HE IS GETTING READY TO GO INTO

ANOTHER PRISON WHERE HE KNOWS

THERE ARE VIOLENT MEN IN THERE.

HE SAYS I AM GOING TO TRUST IN

THE LORD WITH ALL MY HEART.

I AM NOT GOING TO LEAN ON MY OWN

UNDERSTANDING.

MY OWN UNDERSTANDING SAYS I

SHOULD BE AFRAID.

HE TRUSTED IN THE LORD WITH ALL

HIS HEART.

AND IN ALL HIS WAYS HE

ACKNOWLEDGED GOD.

HE DIDN'T SAY I AM GOING TO TRY

TO DO IT THROUGH MY NATURAL

WISDOM.

NO I AM GOING TO PUT GOD FIRST

AND LET PEOPLE KNOW I AM PUTTING

GOD FIRST.

I AM GOING TO ACKNOWLEDGE HIM IN

ALL MY WAYS.

WHAT A TURN AROUND.

NOT JUST GOT OUT OF PRISON, BUT

HE GOT A HOPE, A FUTURE, AN

EDUCATION, HE IS RUNNING HIS OWN

BUSINESS NOW.

HE IS A MODEL IN THE COMMUNITY,

ALL OF THAT FROM SAYING I AM

GOING TO TRUST IN THE LORD WITH

ALL MY HEART.

YOU CAN DO THE SAME THING.

DON'T TRY TO FIGURE IT OUT ON MY

OWN.

I AM GOING TO TRUST YOU AND IN

EVERYTHING I DO, I AM GOING TO

ACKNOWLEDGE YOU AND ACKNOWLEDGE

YOU ARE GUIDING, YOUR SUPPORT,

YOU'LL NEVER LEAVE ME, NEVER

FORSAKE ME, IF YOU DO IT, YOU'LL

GET THE SAME RESULTS.

IF YOU HAVE A SCRIPTURE THAT

BROUGHT YOU THROUGH A TOUGH

TIME, GO TO OUR FACEBOOK PAGE

AND TELL US YOUR LIVE VERSE AND

HOW GOD USED IT IN YOUR LIFE.

COMING UP, ANOTHER STORY OF A

DRUG DEALER WHO BROUGHT A KNIFE

TO A FISTFIGHT.

WITHIN A FEW SECONDS, WE WERE

IN QUITE THE FIGHT.

I KNEW WHEN I STABBED HIM THE

LAST TIME HE WAS SOON TO BE

DEAD.

GORDAN: FIND OUT WHAT

HAPPENED NEXT AFTER THIS.

GORDAN: DARRYL DAVIS NO

LONGER A FREE MAN.

HE HAD BEEN CONVICTED OF MURDER

AND SENT TO PRISON.

AS DARRYL WALKED INTO HIS NEW

HOME, ONE THOUGHT FLOODED HIS

MIND, DON'T LET THE SAME MAN

WALK OUT.

TO SOME LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY

IS A THRIVING HUB OF COMMERCE

AND ENTERPRISE.

DARRYL DAVIS KNOWS A DIFFERENT

SIDE OF THE CITY.

DIDN'T SEE ANYTHING BUT

POVERTY AND CRIME.

HIS FATHER'S MENTAL DISORDERS

CREATED CHAOS IN THE HOME.

HE WOULD BE DELUSIONAL.

THE FEAR THAT IT IMPACTED IS

SOMETHING I WOULD CARRY ALL OF

MY LIFE.

THE FAMILY'S ULOCAL.WMUR.COM

UTILITIES WERE OFTEN CUT OFF.

IT WAS PROBABLY THE MOST

DIFFICULT ISSUE WONDERING IF

THERE WAS GOING TO BE FOOD.

WHEN DARRYL WAS A TEENAGER,

HIS PARENTS DIVORCED.

I WAS ABLE TO CHOOSE WHO I

STAYED WITH AND IT WAS MY

FATHER.

HIS FATHER DRANK HEAVILY AND

BEGAN PROSTITUTING WOMEN IN HIS

HOME.

WHEN HE WAS 15, HIS FATHER THREW

HIM OUT.

I PACKED A FEW THINGS AND

FOUND A PARKING GARAGE IN

DOWNTOWN LOUISVILLE.

THAT CAR WOULD BE HIS HOME

THE NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS.

I REMEMBER UNRAVELLING THE

CHIPS AND THINKING HOPE THESE

LAST A DAY OR TWO.

I REMEMBER THE HOPES AND FEARS.

I WASN'T SURE WHERE I WOULD TURN

TO.

DARRYL EVENTUALLY LANDED A

JOB AS A DISHWASHER.

I WAS HEAVY INTO DRUGS,

DIDN'T KNOW WHERE I WOULD

ACQUIRE THE NEXT DRUGS DARRYL

MARRIED AND MOVED IN WITH HIS

SISTER.

BEST ROUTE WAS TO DEAL DRUGS,

ALSO TO MAKE MONEY OVER AND

ABOVE.

ONE DAY DARRYL RECEIVED AN

INDICTMENT ON DRUG CHARGES.

HE REALIZED A FRIEND RATTED HIM

OUT.

ARMED WITH A KNIFE, HE WENT TO

THE FRIEND'S APARTMENT.

I REMEMBER WALKING THROUGH

THE DOOR AND CONFRONTING HIM.

HE GRABBED A KNIFE AND WITHIN A

FEW SECONDS WE WERE IN QUITE THE

FIGHT.

WE LANDED ON THE OUTSIDE ON THE

CONCRETE.

DURING THE FIGHT, DARRYL

BLACKED OUT.

I HAD NO IDEA HOW MANY TIMES

I STABBED MY VICTIM.

I KNEW THE LAST TIME I STABBED

HIM, HE WAS SOON TO BE DEAD.

HE PUT HIS HAND OVER HIS MIND

AND SAID OH GOD.

THOSE WORDS CONTINUED TO ECHO

WHEN I LEFT.

DARRYL WAS ARRESTED AND

CHARGED WITH MURDER.

AFTER HE WAS RELEASED ON BOND,

HE WENT HOME AND STARTED GETTING

HIGH.

THIS TIME IT WAS DIFFERENT.

I WAS SITTING IN THE RECLINER

LISTENING TO MUSIC WITH A JOINT

GOING.

I REMEMBER THE PRESENCE OF GOD.

SOMETHING VERY FOREIGN.

ALL I KNOW FOR THE FIRST TIME I

WAS ABLE TO FEEL REMORSE BEGIN

TO WORK IN MY HEART AND

CONTEMPLATE WHAT I HAD DONE.

I THOUGHT ABOUT THE CRIME AND

SCENE AND ALL THE HORROR IT

ENTAILS.

I REMEMBERED ALL THE DETAILS.

I GOT ON MY FACE AND WEEPING

TURNED TO CON SULSIVE CRYING.

MY HIGH WAS GONE.

THAT NIGHT DARRYL ASKED

CHRIST INTO HIS HEART.

TWO YEARS LATER HE RECEIVED A

LIFE SENTENCE.

IT DIDN'T TAKE LONG FOR HIS

NEWFOUND FAITH TO BE TESTED.

U IN NEW

WHEN I GOT TO THE YARD, MY

FRIEND SAID WE RUN THIS YARD, WE

RUN DRUGS.

AS TEMPTING, I SAID I CAN'T DO

THIS.

MY LIFE HAS RADICALLY CHANGED.

I ACCEPT TODAY LORD.

HIS FRIEND'S RESPONSE STUNNED

HIM.

HE SAID THAT IS REALLY GOOD,

MAN.

NO PROBLEM AT ALL.

ONE THING I KNOW ABOUT YOU,

DARRYL, IF YOU SAID YOU WERE

GOING TO DO SOMETHING, YOU DID

IT.

I WAS AWE STRUCK.

THIS IS INCREDIBLE.

DARRYL LED BIBLE STUDIES IN

PRISON.

HE EARNED AN ASSOCIATES DEGREE.

DESPITE HIS MODEL BEHAVIOR, HE

WAS DENIED PAROLE TWICE.

SECOND TIME CAME AT 18 YEARS.

I WENT BACK TO MY CELL.

THERE WAS A KNOWING WITHIN IF I

JUST FACE ONE DAY AT A TIME AND

PUT MY FEET ON THE FLOOR, HE

WOULD MEET ME WITH GRACE.

DARRYL WAS RELEASED IN 2012

AFTER SERVING 22 YEARS.

HE MOVED BACK TO LOUISVILLE AND

MARRIED TIFFANY AND NOW LEADS A

MINISTRY FOR PRISONERS CALLED

PROCLAMATION OF THE WORD.

GOD IS SOVEREIGN.

IT WAS IN MY DEFERMENTS AND

HARDSHIPS AND ADVERSITIES AND

GOOD TIMES AND EVERY TIME OF MY

LIFE.

CAN'T IMAGINE ONE DAY WITHOUT

HIS LOVE AND GRACE, AND MERCY.

EVERY SINGLE DAY WHEN I WAKE UP,

I FEEL THAT NEED.

MY SAVIOR, MY CREATOR, MY GOD,

JESUS CHRIST.

GORDAN: HE WANTS TO YOUR ALL

IN ALL.

HE MADE YOU SO YOU CAN HAVE THAT

RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.

THAT INTIMACY WHERE YOU CAN KNOW

HIM.

IN THE MIDDLE OF ANY

CIRCUMSTANCE, HE'LL BE WITH YOU.

HE'LL DELIVER YOU.
