A good girl was forced to keep quiet… Watch what happened when she finally snapped. Read Transcript


GORDAN: A MOM REACHES HER

BREAKING POINT.

STRESS AND ANGER WELLING UP

IN INSIDE ME.

I BEGAN TO CRY.

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO LIVE LIKE

THIS AND SO AFRAID I AM GOING TO

HURT MY CHILDREN.

GORDAN: HEAR WHAT KEPT HER

FROM SNAPPING ON TODAY'S "700

CLUB."

GORDAN: ON "THE 700 CLUB" WE

USE TECHNOLOGY TO PRAY FOR EACH

OTHER AND EXPLORE TOPICS THAT

MATTER TO YOU.

WATCH WHAT GOD IS DOING IN THE

WORLD TODAY.

GORDAN: WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

FROM ROAD RAGE TO A FIGHT WITH

YOUR SPOUSE, MANY AMERICANS ARE

TICKING TIME BOMBS THAT STRUGGLE

TO MANAGE THEIR ANGER.

TERRY: KIM WAS ONE OF THOSE

PEOPLE.

SHE KNEW SHE HAD A TEMPER.

WHEN HER CHILDREN DISOBEYED OR

DRIVER CUT HER OFF, HER ANGER

WOULD EXPLODE DESTROYING HER

FROM THE INSIDE OUT.

FEAR WAS A GIANT IN MY LIFE.

GROWING UP, KIM WAS AFRAID TO

LET HER GUARD DOWN.

HER FATHER'S RAGE EXPLOSIVE AND

UNPREDICTABLE.

HE COULD BE LOVING ONE MINUTE

AND ANGRY THE NEXT.

WE NEVER HAD ANY GRID OR CLUE AS

TO WHAT WOULD IT TAKE TO SET THE

ANGER OFF.

SHE WAS HELPLESS WATCHING THE

VIOLENCE AGAINST HER MOTHER.

AS THE OLDEST CHILD THEN,

PARALYZED WITH FEAR.

KIM THOUGHT SHE COULD ESCAPE

THE ABUSE BY BEHAVING WELL.

I COULDN'T TRUST.

THE WAY NOT TO TRUST WAS TO BE

GOOD, STAY AS INVISIBLE AS I

COULD AND EVERYTHING ABOVE AND

BEYOND WHAT WAS EXPECTED OF ME.

THEN A FRIEND OF THE FAMILY

BEGAN VISITING THE HOUSE.

HE WOULD MAKE COMMENTS ABOUT

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE GIRL I

WAS AND HOW SPECIAL I WAS.

THAT WAS WHAT LURED MY HEART

INTO BELIEVING HE WAS SAFE.

THAT BEGAN A RELATIONSHIP THAT

BROUGHT A LOT OF PAIN AND

BROKENNESS INTO MY LIFE AS A

LITTLE GIRL.

KIM NEVER EXPRESSED THE FEAR

AND ANGER INSIDE HER HEART.

WE JUST DIDN'T TALK ABOUT IT.

BAD THINGS HAPPENED, GOOD GIRLS

KEEP IT QUIET.

KIM ACCEPTED JESUS INTO HER

LIFE AS A CHILD.

THROUGHOUT ADULTHOOD, SHE STILL

STRUGGLED.

I FELT LIKE I AN ENCOUNTERED

THE JESUS THAT LOVED THE LITTLE

GIRL THAT HAD THINGS TO HIDE.

AS I BEGAN TO READ THE BIBLE IS

HE FOR REAL?

KIM WAS TRYING TO BALANCE

MARRIAGE, MOTHERHOOD AND THE

CAREER WHEN THE EMOTIONS SHE

WORKED HARD TO HIDE STARTED TO

SHOW.

MY HEART HURT.

I WOULD DRIVE IN TRAFFIC AND TRY

TO CUT PEOPLE OFF.

YEARS OF SECRETS AND SHAME

BECAME TOXIC INSIDE OF KIM.

HER BIGGEST FEAR WAS HERSELF.

STRESS AND ANGER WELLING UP

INSIDE.

ME I BEGAN TO CRY.

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO LIVE LIKE IS

THIS AND WORRIED I AM GOING TO

HURT MY CHILDREN THE WAY MY

FATHER HURT ME.

FINALLY KIM STOPPED HIDING

HER FEELINGS FROM GOD.

IF YOU CAN HELP ME, GOD Z I

AM DESPERATE AND CAN'T DO THIS

IN MY OWN STRENGTH.

KIM LEARNED TO GIVE GOD HER

WHOLE HEART, NOW SHE IS

EXPERIENCING A STRONGER

RELATIONSHIP.

THERE WAS A HOLY ENCOUNTER

WITH GOD.

I FELT LIKE GOD CAME INTO THE

CAR AND FELT HIM SPEAK TO MY

HEART.

WILL YOU FINALLY GIVE ME THIS?

HE SAID I DON'T NEED YOU TO BE

GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME.

I HAVE SEEN EVERYTHING YOU HAVE

BEEN THROUGH.

I WILL WORK THIS FOR GOOD IF YOU

WILL TRUST ME, I WILL WALK IN

THIS AND SHOW YOU HOW TO BE

HEALED.

IT WAS THAT PLACE OF SURRENDER.

KIM RED CHRISTIAN BOOKS ABOUT

OVERCOMING ANGER.

SHE ASKED GOD TO FORGIVE THEM.

MY DAD IS WALKING WITH JESUS.

SHE FOUNDED A NON-PROFIT

AMBASSADOR ALLIANCE

INTERNATIONAL AND A CHRISTIAN

COUNCELOR.

THERE IS A SCENE IN THE

"TITANIC"

MOVIE WITH THE CHARACTERS AT THE

FRONT OF THE BOAT LEANING INTO

THE WIND.

THIS IS WHAT FREEDOM LOOKS LIKE.

TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY TO BEGIN

CHOOSING I CAN BE FREE FROM MY

PAST.

MY PAST DOESN'T DEFINE WHO I AM

AND WHO I CAN BE IN CHRIST.

THIS IS WHAT LIBERTY LOOKS LIKE.

I AM FREE TO BE ME JUST AS I AM.

GORDAN: KIM, YOU LOOK AT HER

TODAY AND CAN'T IMAGINE A PERIOD

OF TIME WHERE SHE WAS CAUGHT IN

CYCLES OF ANGER AND ABUSE.

THAT IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU

GROW UP WITH THAT.

THE BIBLE IS VERY SPECIFIC ON

THIS.

THAT THE SINS OF THE FATHERS ARE

VISITED UPON THE CHILDREN.

YOU ACTUALLY START TO MODEL THE

VERY BEHAVIOR YOU DON'T LIKE

BECAUSE YOU HAVE BEEN SUBJECTED

TO IT AND HAVE A LOT OF INSIDE

ANGER, INSIDE RESENTMENT.

THIS IS TYPICAL FOR CHILDREN WHO

HAVE BEEN ABUSED.

YOU HAVE SUFFERED A TRAUMA.

AND THAT ANGER AND REP SENTIMENT

JUST UNDER THE SURFACE WAITING

TO BOIL OVER AND BOIL OVER AT

YOUR OWN CHILDREN.

BOIL OVER WHEN SOMEBODY OFFENDS

YOU.

YOU HAVE AN OUTBURST AND YOU GO

WHERE IS THIS COMING FROM?

WHAT IS THIS?

THE ROOT IS DEEP.

IT IS DEEP BASED ON WHAT

HAPPENED TO YOU AS A CHILD.

YOU MODEL THAT BEHAVIOR AND YOU

REPEAT THAT BEHAVIOR EVEN THOUGH

YOU DON'T WANT TO.

THERE IS HOPE, YOU SAW THE

TRANSFORMATION IN KIM.

DID GOD INTEND ANY OF THAT TO

HAPPEN TOWARDS A CHILD?

NO.

HE GAVE FREE WILL TO HER FATHER.

HE GAVE FREE WILL TO THAT

RELATIVE AND THEY CHOSE TO DO

VERY BAD THINGS WITH THAT FREE

WILL.

GOD IS NOT GOING TO TAKE THAT

AWAY.

WHAT HE WILL DO IS TAKE KIM AND

WHEN KIM SURRENDERS TO HIM, HE

CAN TRANSFORM HER, HE CAN WALK

HER THROUGH SO SHE CAN HAVE

PEACE, JOY, ALL OF THAT IN HIM.

HERE IS THE PROMISE FROM JOHN

CHAPTER 8:34-36.

MOST ASSUREDLY I SAY TO YOU

WHOEVER COMMITS SIN IS A SLAVE

OF SIN.

AND A SLAVE DOES NOT ABIDE IN

THE HOUSE FOREVER BUT A SON

ABIDES FOREVER.

LET ME STOP WITH THAT.

IF YOU COMMIT A SIN.

LET'S SAY YOU HAVE A PROBLEM

WITH ANGER AND LET IT OUT

BECAUSE YOU HAVEN'T DEALT WITH

THE ROOT YOU BECOME A SLAVE TO

IT.

YOU BECOME A SLAVE TO THAT

CYCLE.

IT REPEATS AGAIN AND AGAIN AND

AGAIN AND CAN'T HELP IT.

CAN'T STOP IT.

IT IS NOT A QUESTION OF WILL

POWER.

IT IS A QUESTION OF YOU BECOME A

SLAVE TO SIN.

AS A RESULT OF THAT, YOU START

REJECTING YOURSELF.

YOU START THINKING LIKE A SLAVE.

YOU START THINKING I CAN'T BREAK

FREE.

I AM CURSED WITH THIS.

HERE IS THE GOOD NEWS.

JESUS GIVES US ALWAYS GOOD NEWS.

THEREFORE, IF THE SON MAKES YOU

FREE, YOU SHALL BE FREE IN DEED.

START BELIEVING AND CONFESSING

FIRST AND FOREMOST THAT JESUS

DIED FOR YOU.

HE DIED THAT YOU WOULD BE

ADOPTED INTO HIS FAMILY, THAT

YOU WOULD HAVE A PLACE IN HIS

HOUSE HOLD, THAT HE IS FORGIVEN

YOU OF EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE

WRONG.

THEN IN A PROCESS OF FORGIVENESS

FOR YOU, SO YOU CAN WALK FREE,

FORGIVE ANYONE WHO HAS

TRAUMATIZED YOU.

ANYONE WHO HAS OFFENDED YOU.

FORGIVE THEM AND SET THEM FREE.

GIVE THEM A GIFT OF FORGIVENESS.

EVEN IF IT IS NOT FROM YOUR

HEART AT FIRST, JUST AS AN ACT

OF WILL, SAY I FORGIVE THEM,

JESUS, HELP ME FORGIVE THEM,

THEY DIDN'T UNDERSTAND WHEN THEY

WERE DOING THAT DECADES LATER, I

WOULD BE STILL UNDER THE CURSE

OF THAT ACT.

FORGIVE THEM, THEY DIDN'T KNOW

WHAT THEY WERE DOING.

SET THEM FREE.

WATCH YOUR HEART CHANGE BECAUSE

WHO THE SON SETS FREE IS FREE IN

DEED.

YOU CAN WALK FREE OF THE TRAUMA

THAT HAPPENED TO YOU.

YOU CAN NO LONGER, YOU WILL NO

LONGER EVEN WANT TO HAVE AN

OUTBURST OF ANGER BECAUSE JESUS

HAS CHANGED YOUR HEART.

WELL, WE HAVE A FEW QUESTIONS

FROM VIEWERS ON THE TOPIC OF

FREEDOM.

ELAINE SAYS MY HUSBAND HAS A BAD

TEMPER.

HE DOESN'T PHYSICALLY HURT ME OR

HIMSELF BUT CAN EXPLODE.

HE IS THE BELIEVER AND LOVES THE

LORD WITH ALL OF HIS HEART.

I WANT HIM TO BE FREE FROM THE

ANGER.

WHAT CAN I DO?

I BELIEVE THE SCRIPTURE IS ABLE

TO DISCERN THE HEARTS OF MEN AND

CUT THROUGH THE SOUL AND SPIRIT

AND REVEALS THINGS TO US, TAKE

IN FIRST THE SCRIPTURE,

GALATIANS 5: THE WORKS OF THE

FLESH ARE EVIDENT.

IT GOES THROUGH A WHOLE LONG

LIST, ADULTERY, FORNICATION,

UNCLEANNESS, SORCERY, OUTBURSTS

OF WRATH.

IT GOES ON SELFISH AMBITIONS,

ENVIES, MURDERS, DRUNKENNESS

JUST AS I TOLD YOU IN TIME PAST,

THOSE THAT PRACTICE SUCH THINGS

WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF

GOD.

YOU POINT OUT TO HIM, ACCORDING

TO THE SCRIPTURE, OUTBURST OF

WRATH IS EQUAL TO MURDER.

EQUAL TO ADULTERY, EQUAL TO ALL

THE THINGS HE DOESN'T LIKE AS A

CHRISTIAN.

IT WILL CUT TO THE QUICK AND

UNDERLINE WHAT GOD THINGS.

LIKE ALL SCRIPTURE, IT HAS HOPE

IN THE SAME SCRIPTURE.

FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS LOVE,

JOY, PEACE, LONG SUFFERING,

KINDNESS, GOODNESS,

FAITHFULNESS, GENTLENESS,

SELF-CONTROL, AGAINST SUCH THERE

IS NO LAW.

UNDERLINE SELF-CONTROL, YOU

DON'T HAVE TO HAVE AN OUTBURST

OF WRATH IF THE HOLY SPIRIT HAS

THAT AREA OF THE HEART.

SO OFTEN AS CHRISTIANS, WE HAVE

GIVEN UP GROUND TO THE ENEMY.

WE EVEN EXCUSE IT AND SAY THAT

IS NOT A BIG THING.

WHEN YOU POINT OUT IN SCRIPTURE,

IT IS A BIG THING.

THESE OUTBURSTS KEEP YOU FROM

INHERITING.

YOU WANT THE FULLNESS OF THE

HOLY SPIRIT.

AS HE READS THAT, ENCOURAGE HIM,

CAN YOU DEAL WITH THE ROOT?

WHAT WAS THE TRAUMA THAT CAUSED

IT?

HOW CAN YOU LET THE HOLY SPIRIT?

HOW CAN YOU LET JESUS INTO THAT

AREA, CAN YOU START FORGIVING

WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU?

AND THEN I ASK HIM FOR THE GIFT

OF SELF-CONTROL, WHEN YOU DO

THAT, YOU'LL GET A WONDERFUL

RESULT.

START WITH SCRIPTURE AND SEE

WHAT HAPPENS, TERRY?

TERRY: THIS IS FROM JAMES

WHO WRITES: MY WIFE TAKES GOOD

CARE OF OUR HOME, ALWAYS

CLEANING AND VACUUMING, BUT GETS

MAD WHEN OUR KIDS MAKE A MESS.

SHE'LL YELL AND CHASE THEM OUT

OF THE HOUSE.

SHE IS FRIGHTENING OUR FAMILY.

MY KIDS AND I DO NOTES FEEL

COMFORTABLE IN OUR OWN HOME.

WHAT CAN I DO TO SHOW HER SHE

HAS A PROBLEM?

GORDAN: JAMES, SHOW HER.

WITH ALL THE WONDERFUL CELL

PHONES, NEXT TIME, VIDEO IT.

I BET SHE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND

WHAT SHE IS DOING.

SHE DOESN'T SEE HERSELF IN THAT

MOMENT.

VIDEO IT AND SHOW IT TO HER.

AS YOU DO THAT, TAKE

RESPONSIBILITY YOURSELF AND HAVE

YOUR CHILDREN TAKE

RESPONSIBILITY.

IF SHE THINKS SHE IS THE ONLY

ONE CLEANING UP, SHE HAS AN

OWNERSHIP SO SHE IS MAD.

START VOLUNTEERING, HONEY, LET

ME DO THAT.

KIDS COME ALONGSIDE, LET'S ALL

DO THAT.

MANY HANDS MAKE IT LIGHT WORK.

LET'S GET THIS PLACE CLEANED UP

SO YOUR MOTHER DOESN'T FEEL

BURDENED.

SHOW HER YOU UNDERSTAND HER

PROBLEM AND HER HEART IN THIS

AND YOU WANT TO BE A HELP AS

WELL.

TERRY: SOMETIMES, PEOPLE

TASK ORIENTED, THEY FEEL A SENSE

OF CONTROL IN THEIR LIVES AND

EVEN VALUE.

MIGHT HAVE A ONE ON ONE HUSBAND

TO WIFE CONVERSATION, I LOVE

THAT OUR HOUSE IS IN ORDER, THAT

IS NOT WHY I LOVE YOU.

THAT EARNED APPRECIATION IS A

PART OF MARRIAGE.

A WOMAN, ESPECIALLY CAN IDENTIFY

HERSELF WITH HER HOME.

GORDAN: DON'T YOU THINK

RESENTMENT IS BUILT UP,

REPETITION OF THE SAME ACT.

JUST AS YOU GET IT CLEANED, IT

IS DIRTY AGAIN.

TERRY: MY DAD WOULD SAY WHEN

HE WOULD GET UP TO USE THE

BATHROOM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE

NIGHT, HE WOULD GET UP AND MY

MOTHER MADE THE BED.

[LAUGHTER].

GORDAN: IS THERE A COMPULSION

ASSOCIATED WITH THIS?

TERRY: JUST A TAD.

NUMBER OF MARRIED COUPLES, ONE

OF THE THINGS JAMES SAYS, SHE

DOESN'T THINK IT IS A PROBLEM.

IF YOUR SPOUSE IS SPEAKING TO

YOU ABOUT IT, IT IS A PROBLEM.

GORDAN: SOMETIMES WE HAVE A

HARD TIME LISTENING TO THOSE

CLOSEST AND DON'T RECEIVE IT.

THERE IS VALUE, TOO.

LITTLE VIDEO, YOU DON'T KNOW

WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE WHEN YOU ARE

DOING THIS.

HAVE A HELPING HAND EXTENDED.

TERRY: GOOD.

GORDAN: UP NEXT, FREAK

ACCIDENT TURNS NEWLY WED INTO AN

ADDICT.

THEY GOT ME UP TO 19

DIFFERENT MEDICATIONS.

I WOULD BEG GOD ON A DAILY BASIS

TO TAKE ME OFF THIS PLANET.

GORDAN: HOW HE FOUND FREEDOM

AFTER THIS.

TERRY: WHEN SEAN WAS

PLANNING HIS HONEYMOON, HE

THOUGHT HE WOULD LIVE HAPPILY

EVER AFTER, INSTEAD IT TOOK HIM

TO THE PSYCH WARD FIVE TIMES AND

ALMOST KILLED HIM.

IT SEEMS THE MORE PAIN

MEDICINE I TOOK THE WORSE THE

PAIN GOT.

SEAN'S PAIN STARTED INJURING

HIS BACK ON JET SKI ACCIDENT.

THERE IS A PART IN YOUR BRAIN

THAT TELLS YOUR BODY YOU NEED

THIS SUBSTANCE.

IF YOU DON'T GIVE IT TO IT, THAT

PART OF YOUR BRAIN WILL CAUSE

YOUR BODY TO REBEL AGAINST YOU.

AFTER TAKING THAT MANY PILLS,

SEAN STARTED HAVING ANXIETY

ATTACKS.

VERY NORMAL TO HAVE ATTACKS

WHEN YOU ARE A PAIN PATIENT.

YOU BEGIN TO LIVE IN FEAR YOU

WILL ALWAYS SUFFER THIS PAIN.

DOCTORS ADDED XANAX, A DRUG

MORE ADDICTIVE THAN THE PAIN

MEDS.

THE DRUGS ADDICTED HIS

PERFORMANCE AT WORK.

I WOULD BE SO MEDICATED, I

WOULD TURN AROUND AT THE BOARD

AND GO TO SLEEP AND STAND THERE.

IT WAS OBVIOUS SOMETHING WAS

WRONG.

SEAN WAS HOOKED AND FOR

MONTHS HE MADE ALMOST NIGHTLY

TRIPS TO A HOSPITAL EMERGENCY

ROOM WHERE HE DEMANDED MORE

DRUGS.

I REMEMBER BEING IN THE

EMERGENCY ROOM AND BEGGING HIM

NOT TO SAY ANYTHING ELSE.

YOU'LL GO HOME AND GO RIGHT TO

SLEEP.

PLEASE BELIEVE ME.

HE WAS VERY ANGRY.

IT BECAME A BATTLE BETWEEN

HER AND I.

HER TELLING ME AND TELLING MY

DOCTORS AND NURSES I SHOULD NOT

TAKE THESE MEDICINES AND ME

LITERALLY BEING SCARED TO DEATH

SOMEONE MIGHT LISTEN TO HER AND

TAKE THEM AWAY FROM ME.

SEAN ENDED UP IN THE HOSPITAL

PSYCH WARD FIVE TIMES.

EVERY TIME I WENT INTO A

MENTAL HOSPITAL, I WAS DIAGNOSED

WITH MORE ILLNESSES AND THE LIST

WENT ON.

BIPOLAR DISORDER SKHIZO

EFFECTIVE DISORDER UNTIL THEY

GOT ME UP TO 19 MEDS.

HE LOCK LOOKED AT THE TORMENT

HIS LIFE HAD BECOME.

I WOULD BEG GOD ON A DAILY

BASIS TO TAKE ME OFF OF THIS

PLANET.

SEAN FINALLY AGREED TO GO TO

OUTPATIENT DETOX PROGRAM AND

COUNSELING WITH HIS WIFE.

AFTER FINANCIAL CRISIS WHERE

THEY LOST THEIR HOME AND CAR,

SEAN WENT BACK TO THE ER TO GET

MORE PAIN MEDS.

JESSICA WAS AT THE BREAKING

POINT.

I GOT IN THE CLOSET WITH A

PILLOW AND CRIED AND CRIED,

LORD.

PLEASE LET HIM SEE THIS.

LET HIM SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING IN

OUR LIVES, GOD, PLEASE.

FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS

URGE JESSICA TO DIVORCE SEAN.

I STAYED WITH HIM BECAUSE GOD

TOLD ME TO.

AS SOON AS I WAS THREATENED

PHYSICALLY, GOD TOLD ME TO LEAVE

AND NOT DIVORCE.

GOD MADE IT CLEAR I NEEDED TO

SEEK SAFETY.

I FELT GOD GAVE ME A GLIMPSE IF

I HUNG IN THERE AND PRAYED

FERVENTLY, GOD WAS GOING TO

DELIVER HIM.

SEAN WAS DYING FROM THE

INTERACTION AND WENT INTO A SIX

HOUR LONG SEIZURE IN THE

HOSPITAL THAT TEMPORARILY

BLINDED HIM.

I HAD THE FEAR OF I AM DYING

AND GOING TO HELL AND IT IS TOO

LATE AND NOTHING CAN BE DONE.

DOCTORS CALLED JESSICA TO THE

HOSPITAL CONVINCED HE IS DYING.

HE IS SCREAMING AND

SEIZURING.

IT LOOKED LIKE A PERSON BATTLING

DEMONS.

ALL WE COULD DO WAS STAND BY AND

PRAY FOR HIM AND PRAY FOR

HEALING.

SEAN MADE IT THROUGH THE

NIGHT AND BEGAN TO TALK TO GOD

ABOUT HIS LIFE.

I FINALLY MADE MY PEACE WITH

GOD AND ADMITTED TO GOD NONE OF

THIS IS YOUR FAULT.

THE TRUTH IS, YOU WARNED ME,

THERE WERE POINTS WHERE I KNEW

THIS IS GETTING OUT OF CONTROL.

INSTEAD OF TRUSTING YOU, I

ENTRUSTED MY LIFE TO THE DOCTORS

AND ENTRUSTED MY LIFE TO THE

PILLS AND I DESTROYED MY LIFE

AND ALL MY FAULT.

I AM SO SORRY.

SEAN FINALLY SURRENDERED HIS

ADDICTION AND LIFE TO THE LORD.

THE TRANSFORMATION GOD MADE

IN MY LIFE STARTING THAT DAY.

IT WAS NOWHERE NEAR COMPLETE,

STARTING THAT DAY OVER THE NEXT

SEVERAL YEARS, EVENTUALLY IT

BECAME OBVIOUS A MIRACLE

HAPPENED CALLED THE NEW BIRTH.

BY GOD'S GRACE, HE OPENED MY

EYES AND CAUSED ME TO BECOME

BORN AGAIN THE DAY AFTER I

ALMOST DIED.

SEAN HAS BEEN DRUG FREE FIVE

YEARS, TODAY HE AND JESSICA HAVE

TWO CHILDREN AND MARRIAGE

COMPLETELY RESTORED.

BEYOND THE MANY MIRACLES,

SETTING ME FREE FROM DRUGS,

HEALING MY MARRIAGE, GIVING ME A

MINISTRY AND CHILDREN, IT IS A

REALITY OF THE GREATEST

BLESSING.

TERRY: WE ARE "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

WE WANT TO PRAY FOR YOU TODAY

WHATEVER YOUR NEED IS, WHETHER

IT IS LIKE SEAN OR SOMETHING

COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.

JESSICA?

WE HAVE A LOT OF PRAYERS

COMING IN FROM FACEBOOK, FRANCES

POSTS: MY SON IS A DRUG ADDICT.

HE WENT THROUGH TEEN CHALLENGE

AND DID WELL FOR A YEAR.

RECENTLY RELAPSED AND IS USING

AGAIN.

PLEASE PRAY FOR HIM.

GORDAN: IT MAYBE HARD TO

HEAR, SOMETIMES RELAPSE IS PART

OF RECOVERY.

HE HAS AN ADDICTION.

IT HAS A HOLD.

UNTIL HE SURRENDERS ALL AND SAYS

I AM NEVER GOING BACK TO THAT

LIFE, THAT IS WHAT IT IS GOING

TO TAKE.

LET'S PRAY FOR HIM.

IF YOU ARE SUFFERING WITH

ADDICTION, WE WANT TO PRAY FOR

YOU.

LORD, WE KNOW AND ARE ASSURED

THAT YOU CAME TO SET THE

CAPTIVES FREE.

FOR THOSE WHO ARE SUFFERING WITH

ADDICTION, FOR THOSE THAT HAVE

FAMILY MEMBERS SUFFERING WITH

ADDICTION AND THEY ARE SUFFERING

AS WELL.

WE ASK FOR YOUR COMFORT TO BE ON

THEM.

AND TO BE WITH THEM.

AND WE BREAK THE CHAINS OF

ADDICTION OF DEPENDENCY OVER

THEIR HEARTS AND SPIRITS NOW.

WE ASK THAT YOU TAKE AWAY EVEN

THE TASTE FOR IT, ALL DESIRE

WOULD BE GONE AND THEY WOULD BE

FREE FOR WHO THE SON SETS FREE

IS FREE AGAIN.

SO WE ASK ALL THINGS BE MADE NEW

FOR THEM AND THEY WALK FREE FROM

THIS IN JESUS' NAME.

AMEN.

IF YOU NEED PRAYER, GIVE US A

CALL, NUMBER IS TOLL FREE,

888-777-1999.

IF YOU SUFFER WITH ADDICTION AND

ARE GOING THROUGH A CRAVING AND

WANT SOMEONE TO PRAY YOU THROUGH

IT, WE ARE HERE FOR YOU.

IT WOULD BE OUR HONOR TO PRAY

WITH YOU.

STILL AHEAD, PAIR OF

FOUR-YEAR-OLD GIRLS CONSIDERED

TO BE A CURSE FIND OUT WHY AND

WHY THEY ARE NOW CONSIDERED A

BLESSING.

UP NEXT.

TERRY: IN SOME TRIBAL AREAS

OF NIGERIA, TWINS ARE CONSIDERED

TO BE A CURSE.

FOR TWO FOUR-YEAR-OLD SISTERS,

THAT MEANT DEATH.

HERE IS HOW VIEWERS SAVED THEIR

LIVES.

HAPPY FOUR-YEAR-OLD TWINS,

THEY LIVE TOGETHER AT A

CHILDREN'S HOME BUILT BY CBN'S

ORPHAN'S PROMISE.

THEIR PARENTS ARE CHRISTIAN.

IN THIS PART OF NIGERIA, TRIBAL

SUPERSTITION SAYS TWINS ARE A

CURSE.

I LOVED THEM IMMEDIATELY AND

MY WIFE, TOO.

WE KNEW IF WE KEPT THEM, THEY

WOULD BE KILLED.

USUALLY WHEN TWINS ARE BORN,

THEY ARE LEFT IN A BACK ROOM TO

STARVE TO DEATH.

AT SOME POINT, WHEN THE FATHER

IS AWAY WORKING IN THE FIELD,

TRIBAL WITCH DOCTORS WILL SCARE

THE MOTHER OFF AND USE A SLOW

ACTING POISON TO KILL THE

BABIES.

WHEN I HEARD OF THAT, I

DIDN'T KNOW HOW I WOULD PAY FOR

MY GIRLS TO BE THERE.

PEOPLE ONLY CHRISTIANS LIKE ME

RESCUED MY DAUGHTERS FOR FREE.

THAT TOUCHED ME IN A WAY I

CANNOT EXPLAIN.

HOME RUN BY GLORY AND

HUSBAND.

TOGETHER THEY HAVE TAKEN IN 60

CHILDREN.

I CAN SEE DOCTORS, LAWYERS,

PASTORS, I CAN SEE THEM GOING

BACK TO VILLAGES WHERE WE

RESCUED THEM AS A VOICE FOR GOD

FOR THE GOSPEL.

GIRLS ARE JUST HAPPY TO HAVE

BEDS AND A HOME TO CALL THEIR

OWN.

LIVING HERE, THEY HAVE A CHANCE

AT A GOOD FUTURE AND STILL SPEND

TIME WITH THEIR PARENTS.

WHEN I SEE MY TWINS, MY HEART

ABSOLUTELY MELTS.

THEY ARE HEALTHY AND WELL CARED

FOR.

THAT MAKES ME HAPPY, THANK YOU.

GORDAN: IF YOU WANT TO BE A

PART OF IT, JOIN "THE 700 CLUB"

IT IS JUST $20 A MONTH.

GALATIANS, CHRIST HAS TRULY SET

US FREE, NOW MAKE SURE YOU STAY

FREE, GOD BLESS YOU.
