A man tries to end his life by jumping from a 3-story window; while recovering in his hospital bed, he finds hope. Read Transcript


SHE COMPLETELY BETRAYED

ME.

Gordon: AFTER A FIGHT

WITH HIS EX...

I WAS JUST LIKE, I

CAN'T DO THIS ANYMORE.

Gordon: ...HE DOVE

HEAD-FIRST OUT OF A

THREE-STORY WINDOW.

HEAR HOW THIS BROKEN MAN

GOT PUT BACK TOGETHER, ON

THE NEXT "700 CLUB

INTERACTIVE."

> WELL, WELCOME TO THE

SHOW.

IF ANYONE HAS AN EXCUSE TO

STOP SINGING, IT IS PASTOR

JASON DAVID.

AFTER A YEAR-LONG BATTLE

WITH CANCER, THE YOUNG

PASTOR HAD LOST MOST OF

HIS TONGUE.

Terry: BUT THAT

DIDN'T STOP HIM FROM

SINGING A SONG LAST WEEK

IN FRONT OF BONITA VALLEY

COMMUNITY CHURCH IN

CALIFORNIA, AND A VIDEO OF

THAT PERFORMANCE AS BEEN

SEEN BY OVER TWO MILLION

PEOPLE ON Facebook.

TAKE A LOOK.

I BELIEVE THAT GOD CAN

GIVE YOU A NEW SONG FOR A

NEW SEASON.

AND THIS NEXT SONG THAT

WE'RE ABOUT TO SING IS A

SONG I WROTE JUST OVER A

YEAR AGO.

AND WHEN I WROTE IT, I

DIDN'T KNOW WHO IT WAS

FOR.

AND THEN I GOT DIAGNOSED

WITH CANCER.

AND THE CANCER BEGAN TO

LEAK A CHEMICAL IN MY BODY

TO THE POINT THAT MY BODY

BEGAN TO SHUT DOWN, AND I

LOOKED LIKE A PLAGUE

VICTIM, AND I WAS IN A

WHEELCHAIR, AND THEY TOLD

ME YOU MIGHT NOT WALK

AGAIN.

AFTER MANY PAINFUL

SURGERIES, THE CANCER CAME

BACK.

I HAD TO DO MORE SURGERY,

AND CHEMOTHERAPY, AND THEY

TOLD ME YOU MIGHT NOT SEE

AGAIN, YOU MIGHT NOT EVEN

SPEAK AGAIN.

I'M HERE TODAY AND I'M

STANDING AND I'M WALKING

AND I JUMPING.

[APPLAUSE]

AND NOW I GET TO SING

AND SPEAK ABOUT THE

GOODNESS OF GOD.

AND AS WE SING THIS SONG,

I PRAY -- IT BECAME MY

ANTHEM AND IT BECAME MY

SONG.

I PRAY IT MIGHT BLESS YOU

AND WHATEVER SEASON YOU

MAY BE GOING THROUGH.

THAT WHATEVER WALLS OR

MOUNTAINS YOU FACE, GOD IS

GREATER AND HE IS GOOD.

AMEN.

*

* YOU ARE GREATER THAN

THESE WALLS ARE CIRCLING *

* YOU ARE STRONGER

* THAN THIS ARMY THAT I

SEE *

* YOU ARE BIGGER THAN ANY

MOUNTAINSIDE I FACE *

*

*

* AND THIS IS MY SONG

* AND THIS IS MY TALE

* TO WORSHIP YOU, EVEN AS

THESE WALLS ARE STANDING

HERE *

* AND THIS IS MY SONG

* THIS IS MY PRAYER

* THERE IS NOTHING YOU

CAN'T DO *

* I'LL KEEP MY EYES, MY

EYES ON YOU *

* I'LL KEEP MY EYES ON

YOU *

Gordon: NOW, THAT IS

ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE.

IT BRINGS TO MIND WHAT THE

PSALMIST SAYS, I WILL

PRAISE YOU WITH MY TONGUE.

FOR YOU TO UNDERSTAND JUST

HOW MUCH OF A MIRACLE THAT

IS, HE WENT THROUGH TWO

SURGERIES ON HIS TONGUE

AND THROAT.

LOST 80% OF HIS TONGUE.

AND STILL HE PRAISES THE

LORD.

THERE WERE 35 ROUNDS OF

CHEMOTHERAPY.

MORE ON RADIATION.

JUST AN INCREDIBLE AMOUNT

OF WHAT HE WENT THROUGH.

HIP SURGERY, BEING IN A

WHEELCHAIR.

AND FOR HIM TO STAND AND

SING AND JUMP, WHAT A

WONDERFUL THING.

Terry: YOU KNOW, THE

REALLY INTERESTING PART OF

THIS STORY IS THAT HE

WROTE THAT SONG BEFORE HE

EVER HAD CANCER.

GOD GAVE HIM THAT WORD.

AND HE WONDERED AT THE

TIME THAT HE WAS WRITING

IT, WHOM AM I WRITING THIS

FOR?

WHAT A PROPHETIC MESSAGE,

USING WHAT GOD HAS TOUCHED

HIM WITH FOR OTHER PEOPLE

STRUGGLING.

Gordon: IF YOU WANT

TO HEAR THE WHOLE SONG,

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS GO

TO OUR Facebook PAGE AND

YOU CAN HEAR THE WHOLE

THING.

IT WILL ABSOLUTELY BLESS

YOU.

Terry: WELL, HERE IS

SOMETHING ELSE THAT WILL

BLESS YOU.

WE WANT YOU TO MEET AN

OHIO FAMILY THAT IS GOING

TO BE INSPIRING.

IN 2014, CHRISTINA AND

CHRISTOPHER SANDERS HAD A

FULL HOUSE, WITH FIVE

BIOLOGICAL CHILDREN OF

THEIR OWN.

Gordon: WELL TODAY,

THAT NUMBER HAS GROWN TO

11.

IT STARTED WITH A DECISION

TO BECOME FOSTER PARENTS.

MY NAME IS CHRISTINA

SANDERS.

AND MY NAME IS

CHRISTOPHER SANDERS.

WE MET WHEN WE WERE

TEENAGERS.

I THOUGHT SHE WAS PRETTY

CUTE.

SHE THOUGHT I WAS A

STUD -- YOU KNOW WHAT I'M

SAYING.

WE ALWAYS KNEW WE

WANTED A FAMILY.

WE GOT MARRIED SHORTLY

AFTER THAT.

WE HAD A GOOD LIFE.

WE HAD FOUR BOYS AND

THEN WE TRIED AGAIN, AND

WE HAD A GIRL.

EVER SINCE I WAS, LIKE,

NINE YEARS OLD, I CAN

REMEMBER I HAVE LOVED,

LOVED, LOVED CHILDREN.

CHRISTINA CAME TO ME

AND ASKED ME IF I WOULD

LIKE TO BE A FOSTER

PARENT.

I HAD TO THINK ABOUT IT

BECAUSE AT THAT TIME WE

HAD FIVE CHILDREN OF OUR

OWN.

DECEMBER 3rd, 2014,

WE GOT A PHONE CALL AND

THEY SAID THERE WERE FOUR

BOYS.

IT WAS AN EMERGENCY.

CAN WE COME NOW?

AND I SAID YES.

THERE WAS SOME

ADDICTION PROBLEMS IN

THEIR FAMILY THAT LED THEM

TO OUR DOORSTEP.

I WASN'T SURE IF THEY WERE

GOING TO ACCEPT ME, YOU

KNOW, BECAUSE I WAS JUST

THIS BIG BLACK GUY.

AND NOW I'VE GOT THIS BIG

BLACK GUY TRYING TO TELL

ME WHAT TO DO AND ALL THIS

STUFF.

YOU KNOW, THAT WAS MY

FEAR.

WE FOUND OUT THAT THE

BOYS HAD SISTERS, AND THAT

FIRST WEEKEND THE GIRLS

STARTED COMING OVER EVERY

WEEK.

FAMILY IS FAMILY, MAN.

NO ONE WANTS TO BE

SEPARATED FROM THEIR

FAMILY.

WE WANTED TO KEEP THE

CHILDREN TOGETHER.

AND THAT WAS OUR WHOLE

FOCUS.

IT WAS SIX MONTHS IN, AND

ALL OF THE CHILDREN WERE

CALLING US MOM AND DAD.

THE OLDER CHILDREN

ACTUALLY CAME TO ME AND

WERE LIKE, WILL YOU ADOPT

US?

AND I WAS, LIKE, OF

COURSE.

I OFFICIALLY HAVE

SIGNED THE ENTRIES.

THE DAY OF THE

ADOPTION, IT WAS A VERY

EMOTIONAL DAY.

I DON'T NORMALLY CRY, BUT

I DEFINITELY HAD MY

KLEENEX BOX SITTING ON THE

TABLE.

ALL OF MY CHILDREN'S

NAMES BEGIN WITH A "C."

CHRISTOPHER, CAMERON,

CAYDEN AND CAITLIN.

AND WHEN THE CHILDREN WERE

GETTING ADOPTED, THEY

ASKED IF THEY COULD GET

THEIR NAMES CHANGED TO "C"

AS WELL.

AND I WAS, LIKE, SURE.

COBBY, CHRISTIAN,

CALEB, CAYLEE, AND THEN

THERE IS CARSON.

I THINK WITHOUT LOVE,

NONE OF THIS IS POSSIBLE.

Gordon: THAT IS AN

INCREDIBLE STORY.

IT IS RARE TO SEE SOMEONE

GET A PICTURE TAKEN WITH A

JUDGE.

THAT MEANS THE JUDGE SAYS,

THIS IS A VERY HAPPY DAY

FOR ME TO SAY I SIGN OFF

ON THE ADOPTION OF THESE

FOUR KIDS.

WHAT A WONDERFUL THING.

Terry: YOU KNOW,

THERE ARE PROBABLY 400,000

SOME CHILDREN IN THE

FOSTER CARE, AND ABOUT

150,000 OF THEM ARE

AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION.

SO IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR A

WAY TO EXPAND YOUR FAMILY,

IT IS A GREAT PLACE TO DO

THAT.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THIS IS

JUST -- I THINK THIS IS

WHAT HEAVEN IS GOING TO BE

LIKE, SO BEAUTIFUL.

SUCH A GREAT BLEND.

Gordon: AND WE'RE ALL

GOING TO BE IN THERE AND

IT IS WONDERFUL.

Terry: SOMEBODY SENT

ME A QUOTE ON Facebook:

"IF YOU HAVE MORE THAN YOU

NEED, BUILD A LONGER

TABLE."

Gordon: AND YOU

CANNOT JUST ONE TABLE, YOU

CAN HAVE MULTIPLE ONES.

> IN OTHER TRENDING

NEWS, PERRY NOBLE STARTED

NEW SPRING CHURCH IN 1998,

AND IT BECAME THE LARGEST

CHURCH IN SOUTH CAROLINA,

WITH OVER 30,000 PEOPLE

ATTENDING WEEKLY ACROSS 15

CAMPUSES.

BUT NOBLE ALSO HAD A DARK

SECRET THAT HE COULDN'T

HIDE FOREVER.

AND IN JULY OF 2016, HE

WAS FIRED FOR ALCOHOL

ADDICTION.

Terry: WELL, LAST

WEEK THE FORMER MEGA

CHURCH PASTOR WENT LIVE ON

Facebook, AND WE WOULD

LIKE YOU TO LISTEN TO WHAT

HE SAYS ABOUT THE DAY HE

DECIDED NOT TO KILL

HIMSELF.

ABOUT FOUR DAYS INTO

REHAB I MADE THE DECISION

ON THAT DAY THAT I WAS

GOING TO WALK OUT OF REHAB

AGAINST MEDICAL ADVICE, I

WAS GOING TO FLY BACK TO

ANDERSON.

I HAD THIS SPOT PICKED

OUT.

I HAD THE GUN PICKED OUT.

AND I WAS GOING TO

LITERALLY TAKE MY OWN

LIFE.

I WENT ON A WALK THAT

NIGHT, AROUND THE TRACK AT

THE REHAB PLACE, BEFORE I

WAS GETTING READY TO

LEAVE, AND GOD SPOKE TO

ME.

AND IT WAS SO CLEAR.

IT WAS THE CLEAREST I'VE

EVER HEARD HIS VOICE.

AND HE TOLD ME, I'M NOT

FINISHED WITH YOU YET.

AND, UM, MAN, THAT'S JUST

WHAT I NEEDED AT THAT

MOMENT.

IT WAS POWERFUL.

AND IT KEPT ME -- IT KEPT

ME IN THE GAME.

NOW, LISTEN, MY

CIRCUMSTANCES DIDN'T

CHANGE.

MY FEELINGS DIDN'T CHANGE.

I STILL FELT ALL THOSE

THINGS THAT I FELT, BUT I

KNEW THAT I WASN'T ALONE.

THERE MIGHT BE SOMEBODY

WATCHING RIGHT NOW, AND

YOU'RE CONSIDERING TAKING

YOUR OWN LIFE.

YOU'RE CONSIDERING

SUICIDE.

AND YOU'RE SITTING THERE

THINKING, WELL, I WISH GOD

WOULD SPEAK TO ME.

I WISH GOD WOULD TELL ME

THAT HE'S NOT FINISHED

WITH ME YET.

MAYBE HE IS USING ME TO

SPEAK THAT ENCOURAGEMENT

TO YOU.

IN FACT, IF YOU'RE

WATCHING THIS, GOD IS NOT

FINISHED WITH YOU YET.

HE STILL HAS A PLAN FOR

YOUR LIFE.

HE STILL HAS HOPE FOR YOUR

LIFE.

THERE IS STILL A FUTURE.

JEREMIAH 29: 11 IS STILL

TRUE FOR YOU, MY FRIEND.

BECAUSE IF GOD CAN DO IT

FOR ME, HE CAN DO IT FOR

YOU, AND HE WILL.

Gordon: AND HE WILL.

JEREMIAH 29: 11: "I KNOW

THE PLANS I HAVE FOR YOU,

THE PLANS TO GIVE YOU A

HOPE AND TO GIVE YOU A

FUTURE."

NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE,

NO MATTER HOW MUCH YOU'VE

MESSED UP, YOU MAY THINK

YOUR LIFE IS A TRAIN

WRECK.

WELL, THAT'S EXACTLY THE

POINT IN TIME WHERE GOD

CAN STEP IN.

KEEP THIS IN MIND: YOU'RE

NEVER TOO DEAD FOR A

RESURRECTION, AND GOD

WANTS TO GIVE YOU THAT

HOPE AND THAT FUTURE.

Terry: AMEN AND AMEN.

UP NEXT, THE ULTIMATE

TOXIC RELATIONSHIP DRIVES

A MAN TO DIVE THROUGH A

WINDOW.

I ENDED UP BREAKING MY

BACK AND SHATTERING MY

LEFT ARM, BREAKING MY

WRIST AND COLLAPSING MY

LEFT LUNG.

I WOKE UP ON THE GROUND

AND ASKING GOD, WHY?

Terry: HEAR THE

ANSWER TO HIS QUESTION.

THAT'S COMING UP.

Gordon: ROB DECKER

WAS A BODY BUILDER WHO WAS

DRAWN TO DESTRUCTIVE

RELATIONSHIPS.

ONE OF THOSE RELATIONSHIPS

TURNED OUT TO BE THE MOST

TOXIC OF ALL.

SO TOXIC THAT ROB MADE A

DESPERATE EXIT, PLUNGING

HEAD-FIRST THROUGH A

WINDOW.

I NEVER REALLY, TRULY

FELT LOVE OR AFFECTION IN

MY HOUSEHOLD.

THERE WAS JUST WAY TOO

MUCH ANGER, WAY TOO MUCH

PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL,

MENTAL CONFLICT IN THE

HOUSE.

Reporter: GROWING UP

WITH ABUSIVE AND SOMETIMES

ABSENT PARENTS, ROB DECKER

TRIED TO COPE ANY WAY HE

COULD.

I STARTED DRINKING AT A

PRETTY YOUNG AGE.

I THINK I WAS ABOUT 15

YEARS OLD.

FOR ME IT WAS AN ABSOLUTE

ESCAPE FROM ABSOLUTELY

EVERYTHING.

Reporter: WHILE

ALCOHOL AND EVENTUALLY

DRUGS HELPED HIM COVER UP

HIS HURT AND ANGER, IT WAS

SPORTS AND FITNESS THAT

GAVE HIM WHAT HE REALLY

NEEDED.

THE LACK OF AFFECTION,

THE LACK OF LOVE, THE LACK

OF SOMEONE PAYING

ATTENTION TO ME IS WHY I

DRIFTED TOWARDS FITNESS

BECAUSE IN THAT INDUSTRY,

IT IS ALL ABOUT LOOK AT

ME.

Reporter: IN THE

YEARS FOLLOWING HIGH

SCHOOL, ROB WENT THROUGH

LIFE WITH NO DIRECTION OR

PURPOSE.

LIFE IN MY 20s WAS A

HUGE BLUR.

I WASN'T ABLE TO HOLD ON

TO JOBS TOO LONG.

I THINK MY TRUE MOTIVATION

WAS: DRINK AS MUCH AS I

CAN, DO AS MANY DRUGS,

HAVE AS MUCH FUN AS I CAN.

I WAS ON A DESTRUCTIVE

PATH.

IT WAS BASICALLY LIKE SLOW

SUICIDE.

Reporter: MEANWHILE,

HE CONTINUED WORKING OUT.

THAT LED TO A NUMBER OF

RELATIONSHIPS, BUT THEY

WERE SUPERFICIAL AND

SHORT-LIVED.

I WAS IN A COUPLE OF

RELATIONSHIPS THAT WERE

REALLY, REALLY GOOD, BUT

THEY WEREN'T DESTRUCTIVE

ENOUGH FOR ME, SO I

DESTROYED THOSE

RELATIONSHIPS.

Reporter: WHEN HE WAS

ALMOST 30, ROB MET A GIRL

AND SOON FELL IN LOVE.

BUT LIKE ALL OF THE

OTHERS, IT TURNED BAD

REALLY QUICKLY.

IT WAS COMPLETELY

DESTRUCTIVE.

THERE WAS NOTHING POSITIVE

ABOUT THAT RELATIONSHIP.

IT WAS TEARING EACH OTHER

DOWN.

SO HER AND I BROKE UP DUE

TO ALL OF THE NEGATIVITY

IN OUR RELATIONSHIP.

Reporter: GOING

THROUGH ANOTHER BREAKUP

WAS DEVASTATING.

AND THAT'S WHEN ONE OF

MY OLD CO-WORKERS, A

FRIEND OF MINE, HAD

CONVINCED ME TO O GO T GO TO A

BIBLE STUDY.

I'M LIKE, WHY NOT?

THIS GROUP OF 10 OR 12

GUYS ASKED ME IF I WANTED

SALVATION, IF I WANTED TO

ACCEPT THE LORD.

ABSOLUTELY.

I JUST KNEW.

SOMETHING IN MY HEART AND

SPIRIT KEPT TELLING ME,

THIS IS THE RIGHT

DECISION.

YOU GET THIS LITTLE

TUGGING AT YOU.

Reporter: BUT WEEKS

LATER, HIS EX-GIRLFRIEND

CAME BACK.

SHE CALLED ME UP AND

TOLD ME SHE WAFNTE WANTED TO SEE

ME AND SHE WAS SORRY FOR

EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED

BETWEEN US AND SHE WANTED

TO WORK IT OUT.

I WAS JUST DRAWN TO HER

FOR WHATEVER REASON.

AND IT WASN'T A HEALTHY

ONE.

I TURNED MY BACK ON THE

LORD, KNOWING WHAT WAS

BEST FOR ME, TO GO BACK TO

WHAT I WAS FAMILIAR WITH.

Reporter: THEIR

RELATIONSHIP WAS AS

DESTRUCTIVE AS EVER.

THEN ONE NIGHT AT HER

CONDO, THEY HAD ANOTHER

ARGUMENT.

THIS TIME SHE WENT TOO

FAR.

SHE HAD CALLED THE COPS

AND TOLD THE COPS THAT I

TRIED TO RAPE HER AND I

TRIED TO KILL HER.

AND WHEN THOSE WORDS CAME

OUT OF HER MOUTH, SHE

COMPLETELY BETRAYED ME AND

TURNED HER BACK ON ME.

AND THAT WAS PAINFUL.

I FELT EXTREMELY BETRAYED,

AND I FELT EXTREMELY

BROKEN AND HURT.

I WAS VERY CONFUSED.

IT JUST DIDN'T MAKE SENSE

TO ME WHATSOEVER.

HELPLESS IS PROBABLY THE

BEST WORD.

I FELT VERY HOPELESS.

IN THAT MOMENT, I WAS,

LIKE, I CAN'T DO THIS

ANYMORE.

THIS IS NOT THE LIFE FOR

ME.

Reporter: ROB DOVE

HEAD-FIRST THROUGH A

THIRD-STORY WINDOW.

MY FOOT CLIPPED AN

YAWNING AND CHANGED MY

FALL AND I ENDED UP

BREAKING MY BACK,

SHATTERING MY LEFT ARM,

BREAKING MY WRIST AND

COLLAPSING MY LEFT LUNG.

I JUST WOKE UP ON THE

GROUND, WITH SHALLOW

BREATH, AND LOOKING UP AT

A BROKEN WINDOW, AND

ASKING GOD, WHY?

WHY WOULD YOU EVEN LET ME

LIVE?

I WAS IN TERRIBLE,

TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE PAIN.

Reporter: RECOVERING

FROM SEVEN SURGERIES ON

HIS BACK AND ARMS, ROB HAD

PLENTY OF TIME TO THINK

ABOUT HIS LIFE.

YOU KNOW, HERE I AM, A

COMPLETELY SHATTERED MAN,

AND I'M NOT GOING

ANYWHERE.

I CAN'T MOVE.

I CAN'T EVEN FEED MYSELF.

I BELIEVE THAT WAS MY

ONE-ON-ONE TIME WITH GOD.

AND HE REMINDED ME HOW

JUST A COUPLE MONTHS PRIOR

TO ME JUMPING OUT THE

WINDOW, HOW I ACTUALLY

ACCEPTED HIM TO BE MY LORD

AND SAVIOR.

AND SO HERE WE ARE.

NOW WE CAN HAVE A

RELATIONSHIP.

EVERYTHING IS OUT OF THE

WAY NOW.

NOW IT IS JUST ME AND YOU.

Reporter: THE GIRL

EVENTUALLY WITHDRAW HER

ALLEGATIONS AND

DISAPPEARED FROM HIS LIFE.

AS ROB RECOVERED, HIS

PRIORITY WAS GETTING TO

KNOW GOD.

MY WHY QUESTIONS TO GOD

WERE, WHY DID YOU LET ME

LIVE?

WHY WOULD YOU LET ME

EXPERIENCE THIS?

I ALREADY HAD THE TROUBLED

CHILDHOOD.

I DIDN'T HAVE A GOOD

RELATIONSHIP WITH MY

PARENTS OR MY SISTERS.

BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY,

I NEVER WAS MAD BECAUSE I

CHOSE TO DRINK AND DO

DRUGS.

I CHOSE NOT TO LEAN ON

HIM.

I CHOSE NOT TO SEEK HIM

OUT.

THOSE WERE ALL MY CHOICES.

AND HE KEPT REASSURING ME

HOW GREAT MY LIFE WAS

GOING TO BE.

Reporter: WITH GOD'S

HELP, ROB KICKED HIS DRUG

AND ALCOHOL PROBLEMS.

TODAY HE SHARES THE LOVE

HE FOUND IN JESUS CHRIST

WITH HIS WIFE AND SON.

AND NOW HE IS A PERSONAL

TRAINER.

I WAS USING MY TALENTS

AND MY GIFTS AND MY CHARM

FOR ALL OF THE WRONG

THINGS IN THIS LIFE.

AND I KNEW THAT GOD LOVED

ME AND THAT HE WANTED ME

HERE AND HE WANTED ME FOR

A GREATER PURPOSE THAN

WHAT I WAS PUTTING OUT

THERE.

IF YOU EARNESTLY SEEK HIM,

HE WILL HELP YOU.

AND I KNOW THAT.

YOU KNOCK ON THAT DOOR,

AND HE IS GOING TO OPEN IT

AND BRING YOU RIGHT IN.

Gordon: AND HE'LL DO

THE SAME THING FOR YOU.

REALIZE GOD BELIEVES IN

YOUR FUTURE.

HE WANTS TO GIVE YOU THAT

HOPE AND THAT FUTURE.

THE THINGS THAT HE CREATED

FOR YOU, HE WANTS YOU TO

HAVE THEM.

SO OFTEN WE GO THROUGH

LIFE WONDERING WHY DID

THESE BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO

ME?

OR WHY WAS I BORN INTO

THIS FAMILY?

OR WHY IS THERE SO MUCH

TURMOIL AROUND ME?

AND ROB'S LIFE SHOWS THAT

SOMEHOW OR ANOTHER WE GET

DRAWN TO THE VERY THING

THAT WE HATE.

THE VERY THING THAT WE

REJECT.

SOMEHOW WHEN THAT IS IN

OUR CHILDHOOD, WE THINK

THAT EITHER WE CAN FIX IT,

SO WE'RE DRAWN TO IT TO GO

DO THAT.

OR FOR US, THAT'S SOME

SORT OF NEW NORMAL.

IT JUST DOESN'T FEEL LIKE

HOME UNLESS THERE IS SOME

KIND OF CONFLICT GOING ON.

ROB WENT THROUGH ALL OF

THAT.

IF HE WAS IN A GOOD

RELATIONSHIP, HE WOULD TRY

TO DESTROY IT.

WELL, THERE IS A WAY OUT

FOR YOU.

AND SOME OF US, WE NEED TO

BE RE-PARENTED.

WE NEED TO HAVE GOD COME

IN AND SAY, GOD, YOU KNOW

WHAT HAPPENED TO ME.

YOU KNOW WHAT NEEDS TO BE

FIXED.

CAN YOU TAKE ALL OF THAT?

CAN YOU TAKE ALL OF THIS

AWAY FROM ME?

AND IF YOU DO THAT, AND

YOU DO THAT WITH ALL OF

YOUR HEART, YOU INVITE HIM

IN AND SAY, I NEED THIS TO

BE FIXED, I NEED TO LOOK

TO YOU AND FIX THIS FOR

ME, HE'LL DO THAT.

NOW, IF YOU NEED SOMEONE

TO PRAY WITH YOU THROUGH

THIS, WE'RE HERE FOR YOU.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS CALL

US.

1-800-700-7000.

WE'RE NOT HERE TO JUDGE

YOU.

WE'RE NOT HERE TO JUDGE

YOUR FAMILY OR HOW YOU

WERE RAISED OR ANYTHING

LIKE THAT.

WE'RE LETTING YOU KNOW

THAT GOD LOVES YOU.

HE HAS A PLAN FOR YOU.

HE HAS A FUTURE FOR YOU.

AND IF YOU LET HIM IN,

THEN HE STARTS A WONDERFUL

WORK.

CALL US: 1-800-700-7000.

TERRY?

Terry: UP NEXT, A

WOMAN SUFFERS FROM

CRIPPLING MIGRAINES FOR 10

YEARS.

I WOULD HAVE LITTLE

FLASHES OF LIGHT.

AND MINE WOULD MIMIC

STROKES, AND I COULDN'T

COMMUNICATE, AND I WOULD

HAVE PARALYSIS IN PART OF

MY BODY FOR A FEW MINUTES.

Terry: SEE HOW SHE

WAS SUPERNATURALLY HEALED

WHILE SHE WAS WATCHING TV.

Terry: FOR 10 YEARS,

TERRY VARTIMAN LIVED WITH

EXCRUCIATING MIGRAINES.

THAT'S 10 YEARS OF PAIN.

10 YEARS OF FEAR.

10 YEARS OF FEELING AS IF

SHE WAS GOING THROUGH THE

MOTIONS OF LIFE.

AND THEN ONE NIGHT TERRY

WAS MIRACULOUSLY HEALED,

RIGHT IN HER OWN HOME.

THE PAIN WOULD BE

BEHIND MY EYES, AND IT

WOULD BE JUST REALLY

SEVERE, LIKE A CLINCHING

PAIN.

IT WOULD JUST BE HARD TO

CONCENTRATE AND HARD TO

JUST DO MY NORMAL EVERYDAY

THINGS.

Reporter: FOR 10

YEARS TERRY VARTIMAN

SUFFERED FROM WEEKLY

HEADACHES THAT LASTED UP

TO 12 HOURS AT A TIME.

SOMETIMES I WOULD BE

NAUSEOUS.

AND IT JUST AFFECTED

EVERYTHING.

AT THE TIME, I HAD THREE

KIDS.

I WAS HOME SCHOOLING.

AND YOU JUST HAVE TO GET

UP AND KEEP GOING.

Reporter: SOMETIMES

THE HEADACHES BECAME

DEBILITATING MIGRAINES.

THE MIGRAINES I WOULD

GET, IT'S CALLED LIKE THE

CLASSICAL AURA.

I WOULD HAVE LITTLE

FLASHES OF LIGHT.

AND THERE WOULD BE PARTS

OF MY VISION FIELD I

COULDN'T SEE.

MINE MIMICKED STROKES, AND

SO I COULDN'T COMMUNICATE,

AND I WOULD HAVE PARALYSIS

IN PART OF MY BODY FOR A

FEW MINUTES.

Reporter: TERRY'S

DOCTOR WASN'T ABLE TO

DETERMINE THE CAUSE OF HER

HEADACHES.

NOBODY EVER FOUND

ANYTHING.

AND NONE OF THE MEDICATION

REALLY WORKED, SO I JUST

GAVE UP ON THAT.

I JUST, A LOT OF TIMES,

FELT LIKE I WAS ON THE

SIDELINES, YOU KNOW, OF

LIFE.

I WOULD KIND OF GO THROUGH

THE MOTIONS OF THINGS, BUT

IT WAS JUST HARD TO BE

FULLY ENGAGED.

Reporter: DESPERATE

FOR RELIEF, TERRY STUDIED

THE BIBLE TO LEARN ABOUT

HEALING.

I LEARNED A LOT MORE

ABOUT THE HEALING

SCRIPTURES AND THAT JESUS

PAID FOR THAT, ALSO, ON

THE CROSS.

AND I JUST LEARNED A LOT

OF GOD'S WORD, BUT ALSO

JUST COMFORT AND PRESSING

INTO GOD, YOU KNOW, DURING

THE HARD TIMES.

Reporter: EVEN KNOW

TERRY'S HEADACHES

PERSISTED, SHE KEPT

PRAYING AND BELIEVING FOR

A MIRACLE.

ONE NIGHT SHE AND HER

HUSBAND TURNED ON THE

TELEVISION.

I HAD A HEADACHE AT THE

TIME, AND IT WAS REALLY

SEVERE AND PROBABLY ONE OF

THE REASONS I COULDN'T

SLEEP.

AND SO WE WERE IN THE BED

WATCHING "THE 700 CLUB."

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE EXCRUCIATING

HEADACHES.

I DON'T KNOW IF THEY'D BE

DIAGNOSED AT MIGRAINES,

BUT THE PAIN IS LIKE RIGHT

BEHIND YOUR EYES.

IT ALMOST MAKES YOU FEEL

LIKE YOUR EYES ARE

THROBBING WHEN YOU HAVE

THIS AND IT IS RECURRING.

GOD IS HEALING THAT RIGHT

NOW AND THE PAIN IS GONE,

AND YOU'LL NOT HAVE THEM

AGAIN.

I THOUGHT, OKAY, THIS

IS ME.

ESPECIALLY WHEN SHE GAVE

THE WORD ABOUT THE

MIGRAINES, TOO, BECAUSE

THAT WAS EXTRA

CONFIRMATION THAT IT WAS

ME.

THE NEXT DAY IT WAS HARDLY

ANYTHING AT ALL.

BUT THERE WAS STILL A

LITTLE RESIDUALS.

AND THEN AFTER THAT, I

HAVEN'T HAD ANY PAIN

SINCE.

IT WAS ALMOST, LIKE, WOW,

IT'S HERE FINALLY, AFTER

ALL THIS TIME.

AND IT WAS JUST A BLESSING

TO NOT HAVE TO WORRY AM I

GOING TO GET UP TOMORROW

WITH A HEADACHE?

NO.

Reporter: TERRY'S

FAITH IS STRONGER THAN

EVER, AND SHE ENCOURAGES

OTHERS TO KEEP TRUSTING

GOD IN THE MIDST OF TRIAL.

ONE OF HIS NAMES IS

ELROY, THE GOD WHO SEES

ME.

AND THAT'S WHAT I KEPT

THINKING, WAS NOW YOU SEE

ME.

THANK YOU THAT YOU SEE ME.

AND HE IS FAITHFUL.

AND HE WILL DO WHAT HE

PROMISES.

Terry: AND HE SEES

YOU, TOO.

AND HE WILL DO WHAT HE

PROMISES.

WE WANT TO TAKE JUST A

LITTLE BIT OF WHAT IS LEFT

IN THE PROGRAM AND PRAY

FOR YOU TODAY.

Gordon: LORD, WE LIFT

THE NEEDS OF THE AUDIENCE

TO YOU, AND ANYONE

SUFFERING FROM MIGRAINES

RIGHT NOW, IN JESUS' NAME

BE RELEASED FROM THIS

AFFLICTION.

MAY YOU BE WHOLE AGAIN.

BE ABLE TO KNOW THAT GOD

HAS TOUCHED YOU RIGHT NOW

IN THE NAME OF JESUS.

Terry: THERE IS

SOMEONE, YOU'VE BEEN

DEALING FOR MANY YEARS

WITH AN INTESTINAL

PROBLEM, AND YOU HAVE

MEDICATED IT AND CHANGED

YOUR DIET, BUT NOTHING

SEEMS TO HELP.

YOU'LL FEEL A WARMTH COME

OVER YOUR ABDOMEN RIGHT

NOW AS JESUS HEALS YOU AND

SETS YOU FREE FROM THAT.

Gordon: THERE IS

SOMEONE WITH A RIGHT HIP,

AND I THINK IT HAS BEEN

DISLOCATED.

GOD IS ABLE TO HEAL IT.

YOU'RE ABLE TO WALK

NORMALLY.

FROM THIS POINT FORWARD,

ALL OF THAT PAIN AND

DISCOMFORT IS GONE FROM

YOU NOW IN JESUS' NAME.

Terry: SOMEONE ELSE,

YOU HAVE OCULAR ISSUES,

AND GOD IS HEALING THAT

CONDITION FOR YOU RIGHT

NOW, AND YOUR VISION IS

RESTORED TO YOU IN JESUS'

NAME.

Gordon: AMEN AND

AMEN.

IF YOU'VE BEEN HEALED,

GIVE US A CALL AND LET'S

US KNOW: 1-800-700-7000.

AND WE ALWAYS WANT TO PRAY

FOR YOU IF YOU NEED

PRAYER.

> HERE IS A WORD FROM

JOHN: "I HAVE COME THAT

THEY MAY HAVE LIFE, AND

THAT THEY MAY HAVE IT MORE

ABUNDANTLY."

GOD BLESS YOU.

WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN.
