Announcer: THIS IS

CBN "NEWSWATCH."

Efrem: AND THANK YOU

SO MUCH FOR JOINING US.

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE

POM O POM IS BACK IN NORTH

KOREA.

PRESIDENT TRUMP DISCLOSED

THE TRIP AFTER HIS

ANNOUNCEMENT OF PULLING

OUT OF THE NUCLEAR DEAL.

THE PRESIDENT BELIEVES THE

HARD LINE ON IRAN COULD

HELP HIM IN NEGOTIATIONS

WITH NORTH KOREA IN HIS

GREATLY ANTICIPATED

SUMMIT.

Reporter: SECRETARY

OF STATE MIKE POMPEO

RETURNED TO NORTH KOREA ON

WEDNESDAY TO FINALIZE

PLANS FOR THE HISTORIC

SUMMIT BETWEEN PRESIDENT

TRUMP AND KIM JONG-UN.

THE MEETING IS EXPECTED TO

HAPPEN LATER THIS MONTH OR

IN EARLY JUNE.

President Trump: IN

PREPARATION FOR MY

UPCOMING MEETING WITH KIM

JONG-UN, PLANS ARE BEING

MADE, RELATIONSHIPS ARE

BUILDING.

Reporter: CHINAS'

OFFICIAL NEWS AGENCY

QUOTED KIM AS SAYING THIS

WEEK: "I HOPE TO BUILD

MUTUAL TRUST WITH THE U.S.

THROUGH DIALOGUE."

AND HE ALSO SAID THAT

RESOLVING TENSIONS ON THE

KOREAN PENINSULA AND

DENUCLEARIZATION TO MOVE

FORWARD IN STAGES WITH ALL

SIDES MOVING TOGETHER.

IT IS THE SECOND TIME

POMPEO HAS TRAVELLED TO

NORTH KOREA.

TRUMP SAYS THE TIME AND

THE LOCATION OF THE SUMMIT

ARE SET.

U.S. LEADERS SAY IN

ADDITION TO PREPARING FOR

THAT THE MEETING, POMPEO

WILL PRESS NORTH KOREA TO,

QUOTE, "DO THE RIGHT THING

AND RELEASE THREE AMERICAN

HOSTAGES."

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

REPORTS THAT POMPEO SAID,

"I THINK IT WOULD BE A

GREAT GESTURE IF THEY

WOULD AGREE TO DO SO."

HE ALSO SAID IT WOULD BE

TOUGH TO HAVE A SUMMIT IF

THE PRISONERS WERE NOT

FREED.

President Trump: IT

WOULD BE A GREAT GIFT IF

THEY ARE.

Reporter: ONE OF THE

HOSTAGES IS SEEN HERE AS

POLICE LEAD HIM AWAY.

NORTH KOREAN AUTHORITIES

ARRESTED HIM FOR SPYING IN

2015.

THEY ARRESTED THE OTHER

TWO AMERICAN HOSTAGES WHO

WERE BOTH TEERCHE TEACHERS IN

PYONGYANG, AS THEY TRIED

TO LEAVE NORTH KOREA ON

DIFFERENT DAYS.

THE NORTH ACCUSES ALL

THREE OF ANTI-STATE

ACTIVITIES.

THE WHITE HOUSE HAS STILL

GIVEN NO OFFICIAL WORD ON

THE STATUS OF THE THREE

HOSTAGES, BUT A SOUTH

KOREAN OFFICIAL SAYS THE

NORTH IS EXPECTED TO

RELEASE THEM ON WEDNESDAY

AS A GOODWILL GESTURE.

MARK MARTIN, CBN NEWS.

Efrem: PRESIDENT

TRUMP ANNOUNCED THE U.S.

IS WITHDRAWING FROM THE

NUCLEAR DEAL ON TUESDAY,

AND NOW IRAN'S LEADER IS

CHALLENGING THIS, SAYING

THEY WILL ENRICH URANIUM

MORE THAN BEFORE.

> HAWAII'S ERUPTING

VOLCANO CONTINUES TO

DEVASTATE PEOPLE AND

PROPERTY.

SO FAR NEARLY 1700 PEOPLE

HAVE BEEN EVACUATED FROM

KILAUEA, AND THEY FACE THE

POSSIBILITY OF NOT BEING

ABLE TO RETURN.

SCIENTISTS SAY MORE LAVA

IS LIKELY ON THE ISLAND AS

VOLCANO EVENTS CONTINUE TO

ERUPT.

> STATE ATTORNEY-GENERAL

PATRICK MORRISEY WON ON

TUESDAY.

PRESIDENT TRUMP URGED

PEOPLE NOT TO VOTE FOR JOE

BLANKENSHIP.

YOU CAN FIND MER MORE ON THESE

STORIES AND OTHERS

THROUGHOUT THE DAY ON

cbnnews.com.

> MONDAY, THE U.S.

IRISHLY MOVEOFFICIALLY MOVED THE

EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM.

Reporter: THE WHITE

HOUSE HAS RELEASED THE

OFFICIAL DELEGATION FOR

THE OPENING OF THE U.S.

EMBASSY HERE.

WHILE PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL

NOT BE ATTENDING,

SON-IN-LAW JARED KUSHNER,

DAUGHTER IVANKA AND OTHERS

WILL REPRESENT THE UNITED

STATES FOR THE OFFICIAL

OPENING ON MAY 14th TO

COINCIDE WITH ISRAEL'S

70th ANNIVERSARY.

THE STATE DEPARTMENT

FIBERS ARE GETTING READY

FOR THOFFICIALS ARE GETTING

READY FOR THE MOVE, AS YOU

SEE BEHIND ME.

WORKERS ARE TAKING DOWN

CONSULATE SIGNS AND

INSTALLING NEW ONES

POINTING TO THE SOON TO BE

U.S. EMBASSY.

EVEN JERUSALEM MAYOR

BARCOT CAME TO HAVE HIS

PICTURE TAKEN WITH THE NEW

SIGNS.

WORKERS ARE PLANTING NEW

TREES AND LANDSCAPING THE

ROAD LEADING UP TO THE

EMBASSY.

ON THE OTHER SIDE, HEAVY

EQUIPMENT IS CONSTRUCTING

A NEW ACCESS ROAD TO THE

EMBASSY.

THE CONSULATE IS LOCATED

IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF

ARNONA, WHERE ACCORDING TO

NICKY ROSENFELD, SECURITY

WILL BECOME A MUCH GREATER

SECURITY.

THE LEVEL OF SECURITY

WILL BE THE SAME WAY AS IT

WAS IN THE AREA OF TEL

AVIV ON THE BEACHFRONT

THERE.

SECURITY IN JERUSALEM IS

MORE SENSITIVE, TAKING

INTO CONSIDERATION THE

NEARBY NEIGHBORHOODS THAT

CAN BE PROBLEMATIC IN

CERTAIN PERIODS THROUGHOUT

THE YEAR.

BUT WE'RE COORDINATING

CLOSELY TOGETHER WITH

AMERICAN SECURITY, BORDER

POLICE UNITS ON THE GROUND

THAT ARE PROTECTING THIS

SPECIFIC AREA, THIS

NEIGHBORHOOD, AND THIS

SITE.

WE WON'T TAKE ANY CHANCES

WHATSOEVER.

Chris: FOR SECURITY

REASONS, WE CAN'T SHOW ALL

OF THE CHANGES GOING ON

AROUND THE CONSULATE, BUT

THE NEW SEAL OF THE

EMBASSY IS BEING PREPARED

FOR NEXT WEEK'S CEREMONY.

WHATEVER CHANGES,

ROSEENFELD SAYS THE MOVE

IS SIGNIFICANT ON A NUMBER

OF LEVELS.

IT IS SIGNIFICANT ON A

GOVERNMENTAL AND POLITICAL

LEVEL, AS WELL AS A

SECURITY LEVEL.

THE ISRAELI POLICE WERE

PROTECT THE AREA, PROTECT

THE NEIGHBORHOOD, ENSURING

CALM AND QUIET, AND WE'RE

CONTINUING TO MAKE SURE IT

STAYS THAT WAY.

Chris: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, HERE

IN JERUSALEM.

Efrem: DOCTORS ARE

CALLING IT NOTHING SHORT

OF A MIRACLE.

AN ALABAMA FAMILY IS

CALLING IT GOD'S LOVE AND

GRACE.

OUR ERIK ROSALES RECENTLY

SPOKE TO THE FAMILY OF THE

13-YEAR-OLD TRENTON

MCKINLEY, WHO WAS DECLARED

BRAIN-DEAD AFTER HE

SUFFERED A DEVASTATING

BRAIN INJURY.

Reporter: TALK TO US

ABOUT THE ACCIDENT?

WHAT EXACTLY HAPPENED?

I DROPPED HIM OFF TO

STAY AT HIS FRIEND'S

HOUSE.

AND FROM THE STORIES AND

THE INVESTIGATION THAT

POLICE OFFICERS DID, IT

WAS HIM AND A FRIEND WHO

WERE DUNE BUGGING.

HE THOUGHT THE LITTLE GIRL

WAS TOO SMALL TO RIDE IN

THE BACK BY HERSELF, HE

WAS AFRAID SHE WAS GET

HURT.

THANKS TO HIM, SHE DIDN'T

GET HURT, BUT

UNFORTUNATELY, HE WAS

HURT.

Reporter: HE WAS

RUSHED TO THE HOSPITAL,

AND THE DOCTORS GAVE HIM A

PRETTY GRIM PROGNOSIS, AND

YOU EVEN SIGNED PAPERWORK

TO DONATE HIS ORGANS.

HIS VITALS WERE 40 OVER

20 --

Reporter: AND HE WAS

GOING TO SAVE FIVE

CHILDREN?

MY THOUGHTS WERE MY SON

WAS NOT GOING TO MAKE IT.

AT LEAST WE COULD SAVE

FIVE FAMILIES FROM GOING

THROUGH WE WER WHAT WE WERE GOING

THROUGH.

Reporter: TRENTON,

YOU SAID YOU EXPERIENCED

HEAVEN.

TELL ME ABOUT THAT.

I DON'T REMEMBER.

BUT I SAW A SHADOW, AND I

WAS WALKING THROUGH THE

FIELD WITH A SHADOW.

Reporter: AND

UNDERSTAND THE SHADOW HAD

A BEARD?

YES, SIR.

Reporter: AND IN YOUR

OTHER ARM, YOU HAD A BABY?

YES, SIR.

Reporter: AND YOUR

MOM --

I DON'T KNOW -- MOM

THINKS THAT IT COULD HAVE

BEEN MY LITTLE BROTHER.

Reporter: WOW.

> WHAT DO YOU WANT TO

TELL OTHERS OUT THERE

ABOUT JESUS AND ABOUT

HEAVEN?

HE IS REAL.

JESUS IS WATCHING YOU AT

ALL TIMES.

HE IS WITH YOU.

YOU CAN BELIEVE.

NEVER LOSE FAITH.

Reporter: THANK YOU

SO MUCH, TRENTON, FOR

JOINING US.

TRENTON CONTINUES TO

RECOVER IN HIS ALABAMA

HOME.

HE STILL SUFFERS FROM SOME

NERVE DAMAGE AND HAS

SEIZURES, BUT HE IS

UNDERGOING ANOTHER SURGERY

TO REPAIR HIS SKULL.

BUT HE IS ALIVE, THANKS BE

TO GOD.

Efrem: AND THANK YOU,

ERIC.

> JESUS IS, INDEED,

REAL, AND HE IS WATCHING

YOU.

A FUNDRAISER PAGE HAS BEEN

SET UP FOR TRENTON'S

FAMILY, AND YOU CAN LEARN

MORE BY VISITING

cbnnews.com.

> COMING UP, AN

INSIDER'S LOOK AT CAPITOL

HILL FROM A CONGRESSMAN

WHO SERVED THERE FOR 24

YEARS.

HE TAKES US INSIDE THE

Efrem: AFTER MONTHS

OF ANTICIPATION, A

BIPARTISAN SHOT AT

PRISONER REFORM IS MAKING

ITS WAY TO THE HOUSE

JUDICIARY COMMITTEE TODAY.

THE FIRST STEP ACT IS

SPONSORED BY DOUG COLLINS

AND AKEEM JEFFRIES.

AND IT HAS THE BACKING OF

LIBERALS, CONSERVATIVES,

AND THE PRESIDENT.

COLLINS TOLD CBN NEWS THAT

THE IDEA OF PRISON REFORM

HAS MORAL AND FISCAL

OBLIGATIONS.

ARE WE PUTTING PEOPLE

IN PRISON SIMPLY TO PUT

THEM THERE, OR ARE WE

TAKING THE FACT IF WE

INVEST IN THEM FROM THE

MORAL SIDE, THEY ARE HUMAN

BEINGS, AND MAYBE THEY

MADE A MISTAKE, AND IF

THEY WANT TO CORRECT, WE

GIVE THEM AN ABILITY.

Efrem: ORGANIZATIONS

LIKE PRISON FELLOWSHIP

TELL CBN NEWS THIS IS A

CHANCE FOR CONGRESS TO

PURSUE JUSTICE AND

RIGHTNESS.

AND CRITICS SAY IT DOESN'T

GO FAR ENOUGH TO HELP WITH

SENTENCING REFORM.

> FOUR YEARS, HFOR 24 YEARS, HE

SERVED IN CONGRESS.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON SAT DOWN

WITH HIM TO TALK ABOUT HIS

CAREER, THIS FAITH, AND

THE PROBLEMS FACING OUR

COUNTRY.

Reporter:

IRRESPONSIBLE SPENDING,

OUTRAGEOUS CAMPAIGN

BUDGETS, AND AN ALMOST

COMPLETE LOSS OF

BIPARTISAN, FORMER

CONGRESSMAN CLIFF STEARNS

WARNS THOSE ARE JUST A FEW

THINGS THREATENING OUR

GREAT REPUBLIC.

IN GEORGIA, THE SEAT TO

REPLACE TOM PRIZE COST

$40 MILLION.

THE SALARY IS $47,000 A

YEAR.

Reporter: STEARN

TAKES READERS BEHIND THE

SCENES ON CAPITOL HILL,

AND COMPLAINS WHY A STRONG

FAITH IS SO CRITICAL FOR A

LAW MAKER.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT

BECAUSE LOTS OF TIMES

YOU'RE NOT SURE WHERE THE

RIGHTEOUS LEGISLATION IS,

OR WHETHER WHAT YOU'RE

DOING IS ACCORDING TO WHAT

YOU BELIEVE.

AND SO YOU HAVE TO SEARCH

YOURSELF PRETTY CAREFULLY.

Reporter: WHILE

STEARNS TELLS ME SOME OF

HIS VOTES WERE

REGRETTABLE, HE NEVER

VOTED AGAINST HIS FAITH.

STEARNS STAYED CLOSE TO

GOD BY ATTENDING

BIPARTISAN BIBLE STUDIES

HELD WEEKLY INSIDE THE

CAPITAL.

OFTENTIMES IT WAS

REALLY REFRESHING BECAUSE

IT BROUGHT YOU BACK TO

YOUR FAITH AND REMINDED

YOU OF THE LARGER PICTURE.

Reporter: REGULARLY

SEEKING THE LORD HELPED

ASSURE HIM HE WASN'T JUST

RELYING ON HIMSELF.

WITHOUT AN

UNDERSTANDING, AND A

BELIEF, THAT YOU HAVE A

RESPONSIBILITY TO DO GOOD

AND TO FEAR THE LORD, AND

WITHOUT THAT FEAR, YOU

HAVE A BELIEF IN MAN,

RATHER THAN A BELIEF IN

GOD.

Reporter: IN THE

BOOK, STEARNS HOPES TO

HELP CURRENT AND FUTURE

LAWMAKERS AVOID SOME OF

HIS MISTAKES.

I WOULD SAY GO BACK TO

THE DISTRICT.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, TAKE

CARE OF YOUR FAMILY

BECAUSE THERE IS SO MUCH

STRESS, MANY MEMBERS

FORGET THEIR FAMILY AND

DON'T SPEND TIME WITH

THEM.

LIKE EVERY OTHER MEMBER, I

WISH I HAD SPENT MORE TIME

WITH MY CHILDREN WHEN THEY

WERE GROWING UP.

Reporter: WHILE

STEARNS WEATHERED ROUGH

TIMES UNDER MULTIPLE

PRESIDENTS, HE FEELS THE

CURRENT ATMOSPHERE IS MUCH

MORE CONTROVERSIAL THAN HE

HAS SEEN BEFORE.

President Trump: AND

NOW YOU FINALLY HAVE A

PRESIDENT -- FINALLY.

IT TOOK YOU A LONG TIME.

HE FEELS SORT OF LIKE

HE IS GOING TO DO WHAT HE

WANTS, AND SOMETIMES IN

CONGRESS YOU HAVE TO BUILD

LOYALTY AND WORK ACROSS

THE AISLE.

Reporter: STEARNS

DOES SEE POSITIVE

ACCOMPLISHMENTS FROM

PRESIDENT TRUMP, LIKE THE

TAX CUT, BUT HE DOESN'T

SEE A STABLE ATMOSPHERE.

WHEN YOU'RE TALKING

ABOUT THE MOST POWERFUL

COUNTRY IN THE WORLD,

THERE HAS TO BE A FEELING

OF CONFIDENCE, AS WELL AS

STABILITY, SO YOU KNOW

THAT YOU CAN FEEL

COMFORTABLE IN THE

ACTIVITIES OUT OF THE

WHITE HOUSE.

Reporter: THAT'S WHY

STEARNS HOPES A STAFF

TURNOVER AT THE WHITE

HOUSE DOESN'T BECOME

WORSE.

HE ALSO WISHES THE MEDIA

WOULD COVER THE PRESIDENT

MORE OBJECTIVELY.

ANY NEWS STORY THAT I

GET OUT OF THE MAINSTREAM

MEDIA IS NEGATIVE ON

TRUMP.

AND THEY DO NOT, IN ANY

WAY, TRY TO SHOW HIS

ACCOMPLISHMENTS AND WHAT

HE IS TRYING TO DO.

Reporter: ONE PERK OF

BEING A CONGRESSMAN HE

MISSES MOST: THE OVERSEAS

TRAVEL.

A CONGRESSMAN PREEMPTS

A FOUR-STAR GENERAL.

SO YOU CAN SEE THE

PRESIDENT OF THE COUNTRY,

YOU CAN MEET THE

AMBASSADOR.

SO THAT OPPORTUNITY IS

EXTREMELY UNIQUE.

AND NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE

ON THE OUTSIDE WORLD, YOU

WILL NOT HAVE THAT KIND OF

PROTOCOL.

Reporter: A KEY POINT

STEARNS ADDRESSES IN THE

BOOK, CHANGES HE THINKS

MUST BE MADE.

FIRST, HE CALLS FOR MAJOR

CAMPAIGN FINANCE REFORM

DUE TO, QUOTE, "THE

DEPLORABLE AMOUNT OF MONEY

SPENT ON ELECTIONS."

THE MONEY IS TOO

INFLUENTIAL.

AND YOU SPEND TOO MUCH

TIME DOING THAT.

AND LOTS OF TIMES THAT

MONEY INFLUENCES HOW A

MEMBER DECIDES ON AN

ISSUE.

Reporter: FROM HIS

STANDPOINT, FUNDRAISING

FOR THE PARTY HAS BECOME

THE MAIN QUALIFICATION FOR

LEADERSHIP POSITIONS, NOT

WHO DOES THE BEST JOB.

CONGRESSMEN AND MEN AND

WOMEN SPEND TOO MUCH TIME

FUNDRAISING, GOING OVER TO

THEIR HEADQUARTERS AND

JUST GETTING ON THE PHONE

AND RAISING MONEY.

Reporter: HE WANTS

MAJOR CAPS ACROSS THE

BOARD.

IF YOU LIMIT THE AMOUNT

OF MONEY AND LIMIT THE

AMOUNT OF TIME, THAT MAKES

THE WHOLE FOCUS ON THE

ISSUES, AND NOT ON THE

MONEY.

Reporter: YOU SAY

THAT YOU SEE A LOT OF

FLAWS AND PROBLEMS THAT

COULD EVENTUALLY LEAD TO

OUR COLLAPSE.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THOSE

ISSUES?

OBVIOUSLY, THE DEBT.

LAST YEAR WE DID A

TRILLION DOLLARS WORTH OF

DEBT UNDER THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION.

SO THE DEBT CAN'T GO ON

FOREVER.

WE COULD END UP LIKE

GREECE IF WE JUST CONTINUE

TO DO THAT.

Reporter: STEARNS

CONCLUDES BY POINTING OUT

HE NEVER WITNESSED ANY

ADMINISTRATION OFFER A

REAL BALANCEDE BALANCED BUDGET OVER

HIS 24 YEARS IN OFFICE.

HE CAUTIONS COLLEAGUES IF

WE CONTINUE TO GROW DEBT

THAT FUTURE GENERATIONS

MUST PAY OFF, IT COULD

DESTROY OUR COUNTRY.

REPORTING FROM CAPITOL

HILL, ABIGAIL ROBERTSON,

CBN NEWS.

Efrem: STILL

AHEAD...WE'RE SITTING DOWN

WITH RECORDING ARTIST

TORIN WELLS, FRESH OFF HIS

TOUR WITH A MUSIC LEGEND.

STAY WITH US.

Efrem: FRESH OFF HIS

TOUR WITH MUSIC LEGEND

LIONEL RICHIE AND MARIAH

CAREY, TORIN WELLS IS NOW

ON A WORSHIP TOUR.

TAKE A LISTEN TO HIS

GRAMMY-NOMINATED "HILLS

AND VALLEYS," AS WE SIT

DOWN WITH HIM IN "STUDIO

5."

*

*

* GIVING EVERYTHING

Efrem: MOST PEOPLE,

IN TERMS OF YOUR FAN BASE,

WILL INITIALLY KNEW YOU

FROM ROYAL TAYLOR.

* CAN YOU LOVE ME

*

* CAN YOU HOLD ME

TOGETHER *

* CAUSE YOU'RE HOLDING MY

HEART *

ROYAL TAYLOR WAS A

TREASURED TIME IN MY LIFE,

GETTING TO RUN THE ROADS

WITH MY BEST FRIENDS AND

PLAY ALL OVER THE WORLD

TOGETHER.

IT WAS REALLY SPECIAL.

BUT WITH MY FAMILY GROWING

AND EVERYTHING, JUST SOME

THINGS HAD TO SHIFT IN

PRIORITY.

SO BEING A SOLO ARTIST HAS

GIVEN ME MORE OPPORTUNITY,

I FEEL LIKE, TO EXPRESS

MORE FACETS OF WHAT I FEEL

LIKE GOD HAS CALD ME TO

DO.

CALLED ME TO

DO.

I GET TO ENGAGE IN THE

LOCAL CHURCH AND GO OUT

AND SPEAK AT EVENTS, AND

ALSO WRITE AND RECORD

MUSIC, TOUR WHEN I FEEL

LIKE IT IS APPROPRIATE FOR

MY SCHEDULE, AND WHATEVER

SEASON MY FAMILY IS IN.

SO THAT FLEXIBILITY HAS

BEEN REALLY COOL.

Efrem: BEAUTIFUL.

THE ALBUM, "HILLS AND

VALLEYS."

* ON THE MOUNTAINS, I WILL

GIVE MY LIFE TO THE ONE

WHO SENT ME THERE *

* I WILL LIFT MY EYES TO

THE ONE WHO SEES ME

THERE *

I BROUGHT THE DEMO OF

"HILLS AND VALLEYS" HOME,

AND I PLAYED IT FOR MY

WIFE, WHO WAS VERY

SUPPORTIVE.

SHE WOULD HEAR ALL OF MY

SONGS, AND SHE WOULD SAY,

THESE ARE GREAT SONGS,

THESE ARE SO GOOD -- BEING

A GOOD WIFE.

WELL, THIS SONG CAME

THROUGH, AND SHE WAS,

LIKE, I FEEL LIKE THIS IS

A SONG PEOPLE NEED.

*

* I KNOW I AM NOT ALONE

* YOUR THE GOD OF THE

HILLS AND VALLEYS *

* GOD OF THE HILLS AND

VALLEYS *

* AND I AM NOT ALONE

AND THAT JUST STUCK

WITH ME, AS I WOULD SIT IN

THESE ROOMS TO WRITE

SONGS.

I DON'T JUST WANT TO WRITE

FUN SONGS, ALTHOUGH THOSE

ARE FUN AND HAVE SPACE.

I WANT TO REALLY ENDEAVOR

TO WRITE SONGS PEOPLE

NEED.

LIKE, I DON'T KNOW HOW I

WOULD HAVE MADE IT HAD I

NOT HEARD THAT SONG AT

THAT TIME.

* ON THE MOUNTAIN I FOUND

MY LIFE *

* IN THE VALLEY I WILL

LIFT MY EYES *

Efrem: WHERE DOES THE

INSPIRATION COME FOR YOU?

I FEEL LIKE SONGS ARE

MORE THAN WRITTEN.

THEY'RE EXCAVATED.

I FEEL LIKE THERE ARE

SONGS REALLY IN ALL OF US.

YOU KNOW, SOME PEOPLE GET

PAID TO WRITE SONGS.

BUT REALLY EVERYONE IS A

SONGWRITER.

AT SOME POINT SOMETHING

SHOULD BE COMING OUT OF

US.

I THINK WHEN I GET INTO

THE ROOM AND I JUST CREATE

TIME TO GO A FEW LEVELS

DEEPER INTO MY HEART AND

WHAT GOD HAS BEEN SPEAKING

TO ME AND WHAT IS

HAPPENING, REALLY IN MY

SOUL, THEN IT COMES OUT,

AND WE JUST CAPTURE THEM.

VERSUS HUNTING FOR

SOMETHING OR SEARCHING FOR

SOMETHING.

I THINK IT IS ALREADY

INSIDE OF US, BUT WE LIVE

LIFE AT SUCH A FRENETIC

PACE, WE NEVER SLOW DOWN

LONG ENOUGH TO, LIKE, HEAR

WHAT GOD IS DOING.

* GOD OF THE HILLS AND

VALLEYS *

* AND I AM NOT ALONE

Efrem: AND TORIN

WELLS IS WRAPPING A TOUR

WITH CHRIS TOMLIN RIGHT

NOW.

STAY WITH US.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Efrem: IT IS TIME NOW

FOR YOUR WEDNESDAY WORD.

AND TODAY'S WORD IS

ACTUALLY THREE: PAID IN

FULL.

IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE

EASTER FOR YOU TO REMEMBER

THAT JESUS PAID THE PRICE

FOR A DEBT HE DIDN'T OWE.

IT IS A BILL WE OWED BUT

COULD NEVER AFFORD TO PAY.

THE BOTTOM LINE: THAT IS

LOVE.

NO GREATER LOVE HAS NO MAN

THAN TO LAY DOWN HIS LIFE

FOR A FRIEND.

LET US NOT TAKE THAT FOR

GRANTED, AND MAKE THIS A

WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL

WEDNESDAY.
