Watch the 700 Club Canada for May 23, 2013 Read Transcript


HELLO, I'M BRIAN WARREN.

AND I'M LAURA LYNN TYLER

THOMPSON. WELCOME TO THE SHOW.

LAURA LYNN WE HEAR A LOT OF

BAD NEWS.

BUT WHEN WE HEAR GOOD NEWS

IT'S--IT'S REALLY COOL. YOU

KNOW, WHEN IS THE LAST

TIME YOU HEARD SOME REALLY

GOOD NEWS?

YOU KNOW WHAT BRIAN? I

HEARD SOME REALLY GOOD NEWS

YESTERDAY. WE HAD SOME GUESTS

VISIT US HERE AT THE STUDIO

WHILE WE WERE TAPING AND I'VE

HAD AN ISSUES GOING ON SORT OF

IN MY PERSONAL LIFE AND THEY

DIDN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT

AND THEY BEGAN TO PRAY FOR ME.

AND THEY BASICALLY NAMED THE

ISSUE AND THEN THEY SAID IT WAS

ALL GOING TO BE OKAY AND THAT

IT WAS, YOU KNOW, A MESSAGE TO

ME. THEY HAD NO IDEA AND THAT

WAS GOOD NEWS BRIAN AND IT, YOU

KNOW, I HAD TO FIX MY MAKEUP

AFTER THAT.

UM-HUM.

YEAH, IT WAS REALLY GOOD.

WELL, I GUESS WE BOTH HAD

THAT. I JUST GOT SOME GREAT

NEWS THAT MY DAD GOT THROUGH

TRIPLE BYPASS HEART SURGERY. I

PUT IT ON THE INTERNET.

WOW.

AND FACEBOOK FAMILY, YOU WITH

THE 700 CLUB WENT TO PRAYER ALL

NIGHT WITH ME. AND HE'S

HEALTHY. HE'S OUT SO, THANK

YOU FOR--FOR RESPONDING.

THAT IS GOOD NEWS.

YOU KNOW, AS I'M SURE YOU ARE

ALL WELL AWARE OF, LIFE IS FULL

OF PEAKS AND VALLEYS AND WE

KNOW THAT SOME OF YOU ARE STUCK

IN THE VALLEY RIGHT NOW. SO ON

TODAY'S SHOW, WE'VE GOT SOME

ENCOURAGING NEWS.

THIS ENTIRE WEEK WE'VE BEEN

FOCUSING ON WHAT IT TAKES TO

OVERCOME SOME OF LIFE'S

CHALLENGES. TODAY WE'VE GOT

TWO POWERFUL STORIES OF PEOPLE

STRUGGLING FOR ANSWERS IN THEIR

LIVES. WE WILL SHOW YOU WHERE

THEY FOUND THEM.

YES, GROWING UP AS A

CHRISTIAN DIDN'T SAVE NICOLE

FROM HER ABUSIVE STEP-FATHER.

FOR YEARS SHE LIVED WITH THE

SECRET OF WHAT HE DID TO HER

AND WHEN IT FINALLY CAME OUT,

MATTERS ONLY GOT WORSE. IF

YOUR WORLD FEELS DARK, THEN

NICOLE'S STORY WILL SHOW YOU

THAT THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY OUT.

AND CHARLOTTE COLE EXPLAINS

HOW A LIFE OF ACHIEVEMENTS

STILL COULD NOT FILL THE

EMPTINESS SHE FELT INSIDE BUT

AMAZINGLY THAT ALL CHANGED IN

ONE NIGHT.

UM-HUM. ALSO DR. GRANT

MULLIN IS HERE TODAY TO DISCUSS

WAYS TO OVERCOME ISSUES THAT

WAY US DOWN. BUT FIRST, A

PAINFUL SECRET IS FINALLY

EXPOSED BUT UNDERSTANDING IS

STILL FAR AWAY FOR NICOLE

BROMLEY.

DEAR GOD, PLEASE HELP ME

COPE WITH THESE MEMORIES. THEY

ARE SO PAINFUL.

WHEN NICOLE BROMLEY WAS

FIFTEEN SHE STARTED WRITING DOWN

HER PRAYERS. IT WAS THE ONLY

WAY SHE COULD ESCAPE THE

PAINFUL MEMORIES OF HER

CHILDHOOD. HER STEPFATHER

BEGAN MOLESTING HER WHEN SHE

WAS JUST EIGHT YEARS OLD.

HE HAD ASKED ME IF I WANTED

TO PLAY A GAME OF CARDS. HE

SAID THAT EACH HAND WHOEVER WON

GOT TO TICKLE THE OTHER PERSON.

BUT THEN THE TICKLING BECAME

AGGRESSIVE AND UNCOMFORTABLE

AND IN PLACES THAT DIDN'T MAKE

SENSE TO ME. I FELT DIRTY. I

FELT DAMAGED AND I DIDN'T KNOW

WHY. A COUPLE OF YEARS AFTER

THAT HE BEGAN SHOWING ME

PORNOGRAPHIC MOVIES. I'M

THINKING THIS IS GROSS. THIS

IS WEIRD. YOU KNOW, WHY ARE

YOU SHOWING ME THIS. MY

STEPFATHER WOULD TELL ME THAT

HE WAS TEACHING ME. THAT THIS

WAS EDUCATION. THAT THIS WAS

WHAT GOOD DAD'S DO FOR THEIR

DAUGHTERS. THIS IS JUST

SOMETHING THAT HAPPENS IN

FAMILY LIFE.

NICOLE HAD BECOME A CHRISTIAN

EARLY IN CHILDHOOD BUT SHE

DIDN'T UNDERSTAND WHY GOD NEVER

STOPPED HER STEPFATHER FROM

TOUCHING HER.

AS I WAS GOING THROUGH ABUSE

I CAN REMEMBER THINKING TO

MYSELF, YOU KNOW, THIS GOD, THIS

ALL POWERFUL GOD. THIS LOVING

FATHER WHY, WHY AM I GOING

THROUGH THIS? WHY WOULD YOU

LET ME SUFFER IN THIS--IN THIS

WAY?

A YEAR PASSED AND THEN

ANOTHER AND THEN ANOTHER AND

NICOLE DIDN'T TELL A SOUL.

OVER THE COURSE OF TEN YEARS,

THE MOLESTATION BECAME MORE

FREQUENT. EVENTUALLY NICOLE

FOUND THE COURAGE TO TELL HER

MOM, CYNTHIA.

SHE ASKED ME IF HE HAD EVER

TOUCHED ME. I HINTED TO THE

FACT THAT YES HE HAD. MY MOM

SLAMMED ON THE BRAKES. SHE

PULLED THE CAR OVER TO THE SIDE

OF THE ROAD AND THAT WAS THE

FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE THAT I

KNEW IT WAS WRONG.

CYNTHIA REPORTED THE ABUSE TO

CHILD SERVICES BUT SHE KNEW

NICOLE'S STEPFATHER WOULD BE

FURIOUS. SO SHE AND NICOLE

WENT INTO HIDING.

HE CARED ABOUT HIS REPUTATION

IN OUR COMMUNITY AND I KNEW

THAT HE FELT LIKE HIS LIFE WAS

OVER. EVERYWHERE WE WENT IT

SEEMED LIKE MY STEPFATHER WAS

TRYING TO FIND US. I KNEW THAT

IF HE FOUND US HE WAS GOING TO

KILL US AND I WAS FEARFUL, I

MEAN CONSTANTLY.

THEY WERE IN HIDING FOR JUST

ONE WEEK WHEN NICOLE'S

STEPFATHER GAVE UP THE SEARCH.

INSTEAD, HE TOOK HIS OWN LIFE.

I WAS VERY ANGRY AND I BEGAN

RUNNING AROUND THEIR HOUSE

SCREAMING, I HATE HIM, I HATE

HIM, I HATE HIM. I WAS SO

FURIOUS THAT HE WOULD NEVER

FACE WHAT HE HAD DONE. YOU

KNOW, THAT HE HAD TAKEN THIS

EASY WAY OUT. THAT I HAD FOUND

THE COURAGE AFTER TEN YEARS OF

ABUSE TO TELL AND NOW HE WOULD

NEVER FACE JUSTICE FOR WHAT HE

HAD DONE TO ME.

SHE REALIZED THAT ONLY GOD

COULD EASE THE PAINFUL MEMORIES.

SO SHE DECIDED TO TURN TO GOD

FOR COMFORT AND THAT'S WHEN SHE

BEGAN JOURNALING HER PRAYERS.

I KNEW THAT IT WAS GOD THAT

WAS COMFORTING ME. YOU KNOW,

I FELT IT DEEP IN MY HEART AND

MY SOUL. EVERY TIME I READ THE

BIBLE, ANY TIME I WROTE OUT MY

PRAYERS IN MY JOURNAL. I

LISTENED TO WORSHIP MUSIC I

FELT SAFE. I NEVER FELT SAFE

MY ENTIRE LIFE AND I KNEW THAT

THIS WAS COMING FROM THE LORD.

AND IT WAS LIKE THE MORE THAT I

FELT HIS COMFORT, THE MORE I

WANTED TO KNOW WHO HE WAS.

I REALIZED, YOU KNOW, THAT GOD

DIDN'T CAUSE THIS TO HAPPEN.

GOD DOESN'T CAUSE THIS EVIL IN

OUR LIVES. THAT'S SOMETHING I

CAME TO UNDERSTAND THAT HE WAS

HURTING WHEN I WAS HURTING.

NICOLE SAYS GOD HELPED HER

REALIZE SOMETHING ELSE. THAT

SHE NEEDED TO FORGIVE HER

STEPFATHER.

WHENEVER I THOUGHT ABOUT HIM,

WHENEVER I THOUGHT OF MY

CHILDHOOD, THERE WAS A LOT OF

BITTERNESS THERE, A LOT OF

RESENTFULNESS, HATRED.

SHE THEN HAD A VISION FROM

GOD.

MY STEPFATHER GOT DOWN ON HIS

KNEES, WAS TUGGING AT THE

LORD'S ROBE AND ASKING, TRULY

ASKING FOR FORGIVENESS. HE WAS

REPENTING FOR WHAT HE HAD DONE.

I SAW GOD TURN AROUND AND

FORGIVE MY STEPFATHER AND COME

RIGHT BACK AND COMFORT ME. AND

THAT VISION THAT DAY MADE SO

MUCH SENSE TO ME. I KNEW THAT

GOD WOULD FORGIVE HIM IF HE

TRULY REPENTED AND I FELT THAT

I'M NOT ABOVE GOD. I MUST

FORGIVE AS HE WOULD DO.

NICOLE FORGAVE HER STEPFATHER.

SHE SAYS THAT DOING SO ALLOWED

HER TO MOVE ON IN HER LIFE AND

NOW SHE'S MARRIED AND HAS A SON.

SHE HAS ALSO STARTED AN

ORGANIZATION CALLED ONE VOICE,

TRAVELING TO COLLEGE CAMPUSES

ACROSS THE NATION TO HELP OTHER

SURVIVORS OF SEXUAL ABUSE FIND

HEALING AND COMFORT.

I DON'T BELIEVE THAT WITHOUT

CHRIST YOU CAN HAVE GENUINE

HEALING TO WHERE YOU HAVE

FREEDOM FROM YOUR PAST. I

DON'T BELIEVE THAT YOU CAN HAVE

HEALING IN YOUR HEART AND IN

YOUR RELATIONSHIPS. I BELIEVE

THAT THOSE THINGS ARE ONLY

POSSIBLE WITH A RELATIONSHIP

WITH JESUS CHRIST. I KNOW THAT

HE IS THE ONE THAT CAN TAKE OUR

PAIN, YOU KNOW, HE TOOK IT ON

THE CROSS AND HE WILL TAKE IT

TODAY.

WHAT AN INCREDIBLE STORY OF

FORGIVENESS. YOU KNOW, MANY OF

US GO THROUGH VERY BROKEN

PLACES. SOME OF US ARE ABUSED

BY OTHERS. SOME OF US END UP

ABUSING OURSELVES IN LIFE AND

THEN WE BECOME PERPETRATORS OF

ABUSE ON OTHERS AND THAT IS A

VERY, VERY PAINFUL CYCLE AND

NICOLE FOUND OUT THAT WITH GOD

IT IS POSSIBLE TO FULLY FORGIVE

EVERYONE THAT HAS HARMED YOU IN

AND ABSOLUTELY INDESCRIBABLE

WAY AND TODAY YOU MIGHT BE

HAVING SECRETS IN YOUR HEART.

SECRETS THAT YOU CARRY

LITERALLY IN YOUR GUT THAT HURT

SO BAD. NOBODY KNOWS ABOUT IT.

MAYBE IT DID COME OUT AND IT

GOT EVEN WORSE AND SO NOW YOU

HAVE JUST BURIED IT AGAIN.

WELL, FEELINGS THAT ARE BURIED

ALIVE NEVER GO AWAY. JESUS IS

THE GREAT PHYSICIAN AND WHAT HE

DOES IS HE DIGS UP ALL THAT

MUCK AND IF WE WILL JUST GIVE

IT TO HIM, HE WILL MAKE US

CLEAN AND ABSOLUTELY HEAL OUR

HEARTS. I LOVE THIS STORY AND

THE WORD. IT'S FOUND IN LUKE 7

IT'S ABOUT THE WOMAN OF THE

TOWN. SHE WAS AN ESPECIALLY

WICKED SINNER. AN ESPECIALLY

WICKED SINNER. HAVE YOU EVER

FELT LIKE AN ESPECIALLY WICKED

SINNER? I HAVE AND WHEN SHE

LEARNED THAT JESUS WAS THERE, HE

WENT TO THE PHARISEES.

SHE WENT TO HE PHARISEES HOUSE

AND SHE BROUGHT AN ALABASTER

JAR. THIS WAS HER MOST

EXPENSIVE AND PRICELESS

POSSESSION AND SHE JUST POURED

IT OUT OVER JESUS' FEET BECAUSE

SHE KNEW THAT HE WAS THE SOLE

ANSWER TO ALL OF HER PROBLEMS.

AND TODAY, WOULD YOU TAKE

EVERYTHING THAT IS EXPENSIVE

AND IMPORTANT AND SIGNIFICANT

TO YOU AND WOULD YOU JUST POUR

IT OUT IN FRONT OF JESUS?

BECAUSE HE WILL TAKE ALL OF

THAT AND HE WILL HEAL YOU AND

LOVE YOU AND SET YOU FREE.

AMEN. WHOM THE SON SETS FREE

IS FREE INDEED. GOOD WORD.

AMEN. WELL, YOU KNOW, BRIAN

WE'VE GOT COMING UP A REALLY

EXCELLENT SEGMENT WITH DR.

GRANT MULLIN.

UM-HUM.

AND I'M WONDERING YOU AS A

PASTOR, YOU ARE ALWAYS HELPING

PEOPLE IN TRAUMA. PEOPLE COME

TO YOU AND IT'S, YOU KNOW, IT

MUST GET PRETTY HEAVY.

YES.

BUT WHAT ARE A COUPLE OF THE-

THE POINTS THAT YOU GIVE TO THEM

IN ORDER TO GET THEM THROUGH A

TRAUMATIC TIME?

WELL, I ALWAYS REMIND PEOPLE

LIVE WITH THE END IN MIND. SO,

DON'T TRY TO WORK IT OUT AND

TRY TO BE CREATIVE WHEN YOU ARE

GOING THROUGH THAT TOUGH TIME.

BECAUSE IF YOU TRY TO GET YOUR

BEARINGS ON A CLOUD IT ALWAYS

CHANGES. GET A FIX POINT.

WHAT DO YOU DO? PRAY? MAKE

SURE YOU KEEP YOUR PRAYER.

YES.

PRAYER LIFE. READ, READ THE

WORD OF GOD. EXERCISE YOUR

GIFT AND THEN WORK OUT A PLAN.

TALK TO SOMEONE. MAKE SURE

THAT YOU ARE WORKING THROUGH

THIS. YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

AND KEEP YOUR EYE ON WHAT

IS THE FUTURE.

KEEP IT ON THE PRIZE.

YES.

THAT'S RIGHT.

UP NEXT, DR. GRANT MULLIN IS

HERE WITH EXPERT ADVICE TO GET

YOU OUT OF THE VALLEY AND

LIVING THE LIFE YOU WERE MEANT

TO LIVE.

(MUSIC)

WELCOME BACK GRANT. YOU KNOW

IT'S NICE TO BE BACK.

IT IS SUCH A PRIVILEGE. THIS

BOOK, EMOTIONALLY FREE, TELL US

A LITTLE BIT WHAT INSPIRED THIS

BOOK. NOW, WE'VE BEEN--WE'VE

BEEN TALKING ALL WEEK ABOUT

UNDERSTANDING THE MIND, THE

BODY AND THE SPIRIT.

UNDERSTANDING OUR EMOTIONAL

HEALTH BUT WE NEVER REALLY

SPOKE ABOUT WHAT--WHAT INSPIRED

YOU TO WRITE THIS PARTICULAR

BOOK?

WELL, I WILL TELL YOU

ACTUALLY HOW IT HAPPENED. I

ACTUALLY STARTED OUT IN

PRACTICE AS AN ANESTHETIST. I

PUT PEOPLE TO SLEEP.

YES.

AND SO THERE IS NO

EMOTIONAL INVOLVEMENT AT ALL,

IN FACT THE GREAT THING ABOUT

ANESTHESIA IS YOU DON'T HAVE TO

TALK TO ANYBODY, YOU KNOW, YOU

DON'T LISTEN TO THEM FOR MORE

THAN TEN SECONDS. BUT THEN I

HAD TO A GENERAL PRACTICE IN

THE AFTERNOON. WELL IN GENERAL

PRACTICE I WAS SWAMPED WITH

CHRISTIANS COMING TO SEE ME

WITH EMOTIONAL PROBLEMS AND I

JUST THOUGHT, WHAT ARE YOU

DOING HERE? WHY AREN'T YOU

TALKING TO SOMEONE FROM YOUR

CHURCH OR YOUR FAITH COMMUNITY

ABOUT IT? AND THEY JUST SAID,

MY CHURCH ISN'T A SAFE PLACE TO

TALK ABOUT HOW I AM FEELING.

OR I TRIED AND THEY JUST DIDN'T

GIVE ME AN ANSWER THAT WORKED.

SO, ONE LADY ACTUALLY SAID, SO

I'M STUCK WITH YOU.

OH.

SO SHE CAME TO SEE ME AND SO

I STARTED TO TAKE AN INTEREST

IN CHRISTIAN MENTAL HEALTH JUST

BECAUSE I FELT SO SORRY FOR

THEM THEY DIDN'T SEEM TO HAVE

ANYWHERE TO TURN.

YES.

AND SO I GOT INVOLVED IN THAT

AND PEOPLE STARTED TO IMPROVE

AND SO I GOT I HAD--I DEVELOPED

A MENTAL HEALTH CLINIC FOR

DEPRESSION AND MOOD SWINGS AND

ANXIETY.

YES.

AND SO, THEN THAT'S WHERE I

LEARNED THE MEDICAL SIDE. BUT

THEN MUCH TO MY ASTONISHMENT,

A LADY I HAD MET AT THE HOSPITAL

AND I WAS INTERVIEWING HER ON

THE WARD FOR HER DEPRESSION,

HER EYES GLAZED OVER, A VOICE

CAME OUT OF HER AND SAID, LEAVE

HER ALONE. SHE IS OURS.

OH MY.

WELL, WHAT DO YOU DO WITH

THAT?

WELL.

YOU KNOW, THERE IS NO PILL

FOR THAT.

SURE.

AND SO I REALIZED THERE IS A

SPIRITUAL BATTLE GOING ON.

YEE HAW.

AND SO FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF

YEARS I HAD ALL KINDS OF

DEMONIC MANIFESTATIONS IN MY

OFFICE THAT I HAD TO LEARN

ABOUT AND THE CHURCH HADN'T

REALLY TOLD ME A LOT ABOUT HOW

TO DEAL WITH DEMONIC

MANIFESTATIONS THAT POP UP

DURING YOUR OFFICE HOURS.

NOW, YOU KNOW, WE DON'T LIKE

TO TALK ABOUT THOSE THINGS.

I MEAN PEOPLE LOVE WATCHING

CHARM AND THEY LOVE HARRY

POTTER AND A LOT OF THESE OTHER

THINGS BUT WHEN HARRY POTTER

AND HELLBOY STARTS KNOCKING ON

YOUR DOOR AND SLEEPING IN YOUR

BED, I MEAN THAT'S A WHOLE

DIFFERENT STORY NOW. NOW, TALK

ABOUT THIS, THIS MANIFESTATION.

VOICES COMING OUT BECAUSE I

THINK THERE ARE SOME PEOPLE

THAT ARE WATCHING RIGHT NOW AND

THEY SAID, YOU KNOW WHAT? YOU

HAVE GOT MY ATTENTION ON THAT

BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN HAVING A

LITTLE BIT OF THE VISITATION OF

THE THIRD KIND.

WELL, I WAS RAISED IN THE

CHURCH SO I DIDN'T KNOW

ANYTHING ABOUT DEMONS. ALL

THEY TOLD ME WAS THAT THEY WERE

IN OTHER COUNTRIES. THAT

MISSIONARIES DEALT WITH THEM.

SO I WAS A LITTLE STUNNED TO

FIND ONE IN GRIMSBY WHERE I WAS

LIVING AND WHERE I STILL LIVE.

YES.

BUT WHAT HAPPENED IS THAT

THIS IS A FORM OF DEMONIC OR

THIS OPPRESSION FROM DARKNESS.

SURE.

AND SO THESE ARE VERY REAL.

IF WE BELIEVE IN ANGELS WE HAVE

TO BELIEVE IN THE DARK SIDE

TOO.

YES.

AND THEN I REALIZED THAT THEY

WERE VERY INTERESTED IN MENTAL

HEALTH ISSUES. AND BECAUSE WHAT

I LEARNED DURING THIS TIME WAS

THAT SATAN WANTS TO TAKE

ADVANTAGE OF OUR MIND.

YES.

AND SO IF YOU HAVE AN ILLNESS

OF YOUR MIND AND YOU CAN'T SHUT

YOUR MIND OFF THEN HE CONSIDERS

THAT AN OPPORTUNITY.

YES, UM-HUM.

AND SO HE WAS VERY OPPOSED TO

WHAT I WAS DOING TO BRING

CHRISTIANS BACK TO EMOTIONAL

HEALTH BECAUSE THEIR MIND WAS

CLEAR AND THEY HAD REGAINED

THOUGHT CONTROL, THEN THEY

COULD USE THEIR SPIRITUAL

AUTHORITY AND TURN HIM OFF.

SURE.

SHUT HIM OFF.

EXCELLENT.

SO I REALIZED THAT THERE WAS

A SPIRITUAL COMPONENT TO OUR

MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS.

ABSOLUTELY.

SO I HAD TO LEARN ABOUT THAT.

AND THEN, SO I THOUGHT I WAS

BALANCED, BUT THEN WE HAD A

MARRIAGE CRISIS. KATHY AND I

HAD A MARRIAGE CONFLICT AND WE

HAD TO GO AND SEE A COUNSELOR

AND I MEAN, I KNEW KATHY

NEEDED HELP BUT THERE WAS NO

PILL FOR HERE AND I THOUGHT

THERE WOULD BE A PILL FOR

EVERYTHING.

SURE.

AND SO WE ACTUALLY WENT TO A

COUNSELOR AND HE WALKED US

THROUGH SAYING--HE REVEALED TO

US THAT WE HAD EMOTIONAL

BAGGAGE. AND SO WE HAD TO

LEARN THE HEALING PROCESS FOR

EMOTIONAL BAGGAGE. SO WHEN

I WROTE THE BOOK, I JUST PUT--

MADE THE FIRST THIRD OF THE

BOOK IS HOW TO DO AN ASSESSMENT

OF YOUR THOUGHTS.

SURE.

AND HOW MEDICAL TREATMENT

WORKS FROM A CHRISTIAN

PERSPECTIVE. A CHRISTIAN

UNDERSTANDING OF MOOD DISORDERS

AND THE SECOND PART OF THE

BOOK IS KNOWING ABOUT SPIRITUAL

CONFLICT, SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY

AND HOW SATAN WANTS TO MESS UP

YOUR MIND.

YES.

AND, AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT.

THE LAST THIRD OF THE BOOK IS

HOW TO DO AN INVENTORY OF YOUR

PERSONALITY TO SEE WHERE YOUR

BAGGAGE IS.

YES.

AND SO EACH CHAPTER EXPLAINS,

HERE'S THE PROBLEM, HERE'S THE

SOLUTION, AND THEN THERE ARE

PRAYERS AT THE END OF EACH--

MOST CHAPTERS ON HOW TO PRAY TO

GET RID OF THAT PROBLEM.

I ENJOYED THAT THE MOST AS

FAR AS THE PRACTICAL

APPLICATION OF THIS AS WELL.

YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU WERE LOOKING

AT WHEN REALITY SEEMS SO FAR AW.

I WANT TO TALK ABOUT A VALLEY

EXPERIENCE BECAUSE THERE ARE SO

MANY PEOPLE THAT HAVE SAID I'VE

GOTTEN TO A POINT WHERE LIFE

HAS GOTTEN STALE. ONE DOOR

AFTER ANOTHER HAS BEEN CLOSED

AND, YOU KNOW, WE HEAR WHAT THE

SCRIPTURE SAYS, WEEPING LASTS

FOR A NIGHT BUT JOY COMES IN

THE MORNING BUT HOW LONG IS THE

NIGHT? WHEN IS THE MORNING

COMING? THIS VALLEY EXPERIENCE

IS VERY COMMON ESPECIALLY RIGHT

NOW BUT IT COULD BE BECAUSE OF

THE BAGGAGE OF THE PAST THAT

HAS NOT BEEN HELD RECOGNIZED

AND DEALT WITH APPROPRIATELY.

TALK TO US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT

THESE VALLEY EXPERIENCES.

WELL, WE ALL GO THROUGH

VALLEY EXPERIENCES. IT'S JUST

PART OF BEING HUMAN.

YES.

OKAY, BUT IT'S HOW WE

INTERPRET THE VALLEY EXPERIENCE

THAT AFFECTS OUR APPROACH TO IT

OR OUR MOOD ABOUT IT.

OKAY.

SO YOU CAN HAVE TWO PEOPLE

WHO HAVE THE EXACT SAME VALLEY

EXPERIENCE BUT THEIR RESPONSE

TO IT WILL BE DRAMATICALLY

DIFFERENT.

OKAY.

SO LET'S TALK ABOUT FINANCIAL

ISSUES OR A JOB LOSS.

GOOD.

OKAY, SO THAT'S A COMMON

PROBLEM.

SURE.

AND SO FOR ONE PERSON IT WILL

BE ABSOLUTELY DEVASTATING.

THEY WILL LOSE HOPE THAT LIFE

IS OVER. ANOTHER PERSON WILL

SAY, I'LL JUST GET ANOTHER JOB.

YES.

YOU SEE THEY WILL HAVE THE

VERY SAME ISSUE. IT ALL

DEPENDS THAT AND H--THEIR

PERSPECTIVE DEPENDS ON THEIR

PAST.

YES, OKAY.

SO THE PERSON WHO WAS

OVERWHELMED AND DEVASTATED,

WELL THEN IN THEIR PAST, IN

THEIR BAGGAGE, AND THERE WOULD

HAVE BEEN EVENTS IN THEIR PAST

THAT WOULD HAVE MADE THEM

FEARFUL, UNCERTAIN, NOT

TRUSTING, THEIR FAITH LEVEL

WOULD BE LOW OR THAT THEY

WOULD HAVE ATTACHED THEIR

PERSONAL SIGNIFICANCE TO THEIR

EARNINGS. WHEN THE OTHER

PERSON LOSES THEIR JOB, THEY

MAY HAVE BEEN IN A VERY

EMOTIONALLY HOME THAT SAID YOU

ARE AN IMPORTANT PERSON, GOD

LOVES YOU REGARDLESS OF WHAT

YOUR JOB IS OR WHAT YOUR INCOME

IS AND THAT YOUR LOVE IS SECURE

IN US AS PARENTS AND IN GOD.

SO IT DOESN'T MATTER WHERE YOU

ARE WORKING, GOD WILL LOOK

AFTER YOU. SO YOUR BAGGAGE

DETERMINES HOW YOU RESPOND TO

THE EVENTS.

DR. MULLIN, YOU KNOW, WHEN

YOU LOOK AT THE TIME THAT WE

ARE LIVING IN AS FAR AS

FINANCIALLY WHERE THE NEW UP

IS STAYING EVEN AND STOPPING

OUR EROSION. TALK TO US ABOUT

THE WAY TO FREEDOM. GIVE US

SOME PRACTICAL THINGS BECAUSE

SOMEONE IS OUT THERE AND THEY

ARE SAYING, YOU KNOW I HAVE HAD

ONE DOOR LOCKED AFTER ANOTHER

AND I HAVE DONE EVERYTHING I

POSSIBLY COULD AND NOTHING IS

CHANGING. WHAT DO THEY DO?

FIRST OFF, IT'S A TRUST

ISSUE.

OKAY.

IT'S A TRUST ISSUE BECAUSE

WHEN YOU ARE FEELING HOPELESS,

IT MEANS YOUR TRUST LEVEL HAS

REALLY DROPPED.

OKAY.

BECAUSE IF YOUR TRUST LEVEL

IS VERY HIGH, IN OTHER WORDS,

YOU ARE WALKING WITH GOD,

HEARING HIS VOICE THEN IT

DOESN'T MATTER WHAT HAPPENS

AROUND YOU, YOU ARE NEVER

HOPELESS. AND THE PROBLEM YOU

ARE DESCRIBING IS THAT PEOPLE,

THEY HAVE AN ADVERSE

CIRCUMSTANCE AND THEY, THEIR

HOPE DRAINS OUT OF THEM.

YES.

OKAY, SO THAT'S A TRUST ISSUE

SO THAT EVERYTHING WE DO TO

BUILD OUR TRUST WILL HELP

ASSIST US IN THESE VALLEY

EXPERIENCES.

OKAY.

THE SECOND IS TO REALIZE THAT

THE WAY YOU ARE RESPONDING NOW

IS A REFLECTION OF YOUR BAGGAGE

AND IF YOU CAN GET YOUR BAGGAGE

HEALED, AND THERE ARE LOTS OF

WAYS TO DO THAT.

OKAY.

THEN IT WILL CHANGE YOUR

PERSPECTIVE. SO IN OTHER WORDS

THE LIES YOU LEARNED AS A CHILD

FOR EXAMPLE, IS THAT YOU ARE

ONLY WORTHWHILE IF YOU ARE A

HIGH ACHIEVER.

OH.

IF YOU LOSE THAT PEDESTAL

YOU ARE USELESS. THAT'S A LIE

THAT YOU WOULD HAVE PICKED UP

IN GRADE SCHOOL OR SOMEWHERE.

THEN GOD WANTS TO HEAL THAT LIE

TO REALIZE THAT YOUR WORTH TO

HIM IS INDEPENDENT OF YOUR

EARNINGS.

OKAY, AND WHEN WE LOOK AT AND

I NEED YOU TO LOOK IN THE

CAMERA RIGHT NOW AND TALK TO

SOMEONE AS WELL BECAUSE THEY

MAY NOT GET INTO YOUR OFFICE

BUT THEY CAN FIND YOU ON YOUR

BLOG, ON YOUR WEBSITE, AND

MANY OTHER AREAS.

AND THEY CAN CONTACT ME EVEN

FOR A PERSONAL APPOINTMENT

THROUGH COACHING.

YES, COULD YOU LOOK A THAT

AND NOW EVEN PRAY WITH THEM AND,

AND START THE PROCESS OFF?

BECAUSE I BELIEVE IT HAS TO

START WITH A MOMENT BUT IT

TAKES PLACE OVER TIME.

SURE, LET'S JUST PRAY.

FATHER I JUST BRING BEFORE YOU

NOW EVERYONE WHO IS WATCHING

WHO IS STRUGGLING WITH THEIR

VALLEYS AND WITH DISCOURAGEMENT

AND--AND THEIR INTERPRETATION

OF EVENTS AND I ASK NOW THAT

YOU WOULD WRAP YOUR AROUND THEM

AND JUST GIVE THEM A NEW SENSE

OF HOPE.

YES.

AND RESTORE THEIR TRUST SO

THAT THEY WOULD JUST HAVE A NEW

UNDERSTANDING OF HOW MUCH YOU

CARE FOR THEM AND HOW MUCH YOU

LOVE THEM AND FATHER I JUST ASK

NOW THAT YOU WOULD JUST COME

AND HEAL THOSE WOUNDS. REMOVE

THOSE LIES AND REPLACE THEM

WITH TRUTH OF HOW IMPORTANT AND

SIGNIFICANT THEY ARE TO YOU.

AMEN.

AMEN. PROVERBS 3:5 SAYS,

LEAN NOT ON YOUR OWN

UNDERSTANDING BUT IN ALL YOUR

WAYS ACKNOWLEDGE HIM AND HE

WILL MAKE YOUR PATH STRAIGHT.

1-855-759-700. CALL US.

PRAYER PARTNERS ARE STANDING BY.

WELL, UP NEXT, ONE WOMAN SHE

SEARCHES FOR PEACE BUT SHE

FINDS IT WITH THE CLICK OF A

REMOTE.

CHARLOTTE COLE WAS JUST FIVE

YEARS OLD WHEN HER PARENTS

DIVORCED. AT FIRST, SHE DIDN'T

UNDERSTAND WHAT THAT MEANT.

I REMEMBER BEING TOLD THAT

OUR--MY PARENTS WERE GETTING

DIVORCED AND I LOOKED AROUND

THE ROOM AND EVERYBODY WAS

CRYING SO I CRIED.

AS SHE GREW UP, THE PAIN OF

LIVING IN A BROKEN HOME SET IN.

AND SO I BEGAN TO START A

PATH OF LIFE THAT WAS REALLY

FULL OF SELF DESTRUCTION AND IT

JUST CAUSED ME TO FEEL DIRTY

AND SHAMEFUL. AND MY

RELATIONSHIPS THAT I CHOSE WERE

NOT HEALTHY. I HAD AN EATING

DISORDER, I SUFFERED BULIMIA.

AND JUST SOME REALLY AWFUL

THINGS THAT CAN GO ALONG WITH

THE PAIN OF BEING A TEENAGER.

I DIDN'T HAVE ANY SELF RESPECT

AND SO I JUST DIDN'T HAVE ANY

DESIRE TO TAKE CARE FOR MY

BODY.

CHARLOTTE ATTENDED RELIGIOUS

SCHOOLS AND WENT TO CHURCH

OFTEN.

I THOUGH I WAS A CHRISTIAN

BECAUSE OF ALL THE THINGS THAT

I DID AND BUT I KNEW I DIDN'T

WANT TO BE BORN AGAIN ALTHOUGH

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT IT WAS. IT

WAS JUST WEIRD AND THAT'S ALL

I KNEW. EVERYTHING I SOUGHT TO

FEEL GOOD OR TO FILL THAT VOID

IN MY LIFE ALWAYS ENDED UP

EMPTY AND JUST ADDING MORE AND

MORE SHAME AND GUILT TO MY LIFE

NO MATTER WHAT IT WAS I DID.

IN HER TWENTIES, CHARLOTTE

MARRIED TOM, WHOM SHE MET AT A

PARTY. SHE HOPED THE HURT

WOULD GO AWAY.

I HAD MARRIED THE MAN OF MY

DREAMS AND I HAD THE WEDDING OF

MY DREAMS AND I LIVED IN A HOME

AND I HAD CHILDREN AND DROVE A

CAR, AND I HAD ALL OF THESE

WONDERFUL THINGS BUT I JUST

HURT. THOSE DIDN'T SATISFY

WHAT I NEEDED AND I JUST KEPT

THINKING THIS WILL GO AWAY.

BUT THE NEXT BABY, WELL THIS

WILL GO AWAY WHEN I LOSE

THIS WEIGHT. THIS WILL GO AWAY

WHEN THIS HAPPENS AND IT

DIDN'T.

THAT ALL CHANGED ONE NIGHT

WHILE WATCHING TELEVISION WITH

HER HUSBAND.

I TURNED THE 700 CLUB ON AND

PAT ROBERTSON WOULD THEN TAKE

THIS TIME AND HE WOULD CLOSE

HIS EYES AND HE WOULD PAY AND I

WHEN I WENT TO CHURCH WE DIDN'T

DO THAT. WE WOULD SAY RECITED

PRAYERS OUT OF BOOKS AND SO I

GENERALLY WOULD JUST CHANGE THE

CHANNEL. AND ONE NIGHT, WE

WERE WATCHING THE 700 CLUB AND

PAT ROBERTSON STARTED TO PRAY.

I JUST SAID WELL, I'LL JUST

PRAY WITH HIM BECAUSE I DID

PRAY WHEN I WENT TO CHURCH.

SO, I JOINED HIM IN PRAYER AND

AS I BOWED MY HEAD AND I JUST

THOUGHT I WAS JUST PRAYING A

REGULAR PRAYER. I DIDN'T KNOW

WHAT I WAS DOING AT ALL

HONESTLY AND I FELT THE HAND OF

THE LORD LITERALLY REACHING IN

TO MY CHEST. HE JUST GRABBED A

HANDFUL OF PAIN AND IT JUST

LEFT MY BODY. I COULDN'T

BELIEVE WHAT WAS HAPPENING.

I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT WAS

HAPPENING AND I COULDN'T

BELIEVE I COULD FEEL SO FREE.

I WAS TERRIFIED. I HAD NO IDEA

WHAT WAS HAPPENING TO ME AND

YET I FELT SO GOOD. I NEVER

FELT SO GOOD IN MY WHOLE LIFE

AND I--I WAS LIKE A PERSON WHO

HAD BEEN SET FREE AND I DIDN'T

EVEN KNOW I HAD BEEN IN PRISON.

CHARLOTTE DIDN'T TELL TOM

RIGHT AWAY ABOUT HER EXPERIENCE.

SHE HID IT FROM HIM UNSURE OF

WHAT HAD JUST HAPPENED.

I KEPT GOING BACK TO THE 700

CLUB OVER AND OVER TO SEE WHAT

IN THE WORLD HAS HAPPENED TO ME

AND AS I--AS I WATCHED IT I

REALIZED THAT I WAS BORN AGAIN.

AND SUCH A WEIRD EXPERIENCE

BECAUSE IT WAS THE ONE THING I

NEVER, EVER WANTED TO BE A PART

OF AND YET IT WAS THE MOST

AWESOME THING THAT I EVER HAD

IN MY WHOLE LIFE.

WHEN SHE EVENTUALLY TOLD TOM

WHAT SHE HAD DONE, SHE WAS

THRILLED TO HEAR THAT HE TOO

PRAYED TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN

WHILE WATCHING THE 700 CLUB.

SINCE THAT DAY THEY HAVE NEVER

LOOKED BACK.

HE CAME AND MET ME IN THE

BOTTOM OF THE BARREL. HE CAME

AND LIFTED ME OUT NOT BECAUSE

OF ANYTHING THAT I HAD EVER

DONE BUT BECAUSE OF WHO HE IS.

HE CONVINCED ME THAT HE WANTS

ME.

CHARLOTTE REGULARLY BLOGS

ABOUT HER NEW LIFE IN CHRIST

AND CREATES BIBLE STUDIES TO

ENCOURAGE WOMEN IN THEIR

SPIRITUAL LIFE.

I HAVE A BRAND NEW LIFE. THE

BIBLE SAYS IF ANYONE IS IN

CHRIST HE IS A NEW CREATION.

THE OLD HAS DIED AND THE NEW

HAS COME AND THAT IS ME.

YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU LOOK IN

CHARLOTTE AND WE SEE AT FIVE

YEARS OLD, THAT WAS WHERE THE

TRAUMA CAME IN WHERE THE FAMILY

DIVORCED AND FROM THAT TIME ON

THE SELF DESTRUCTION. WOW,

IT'S AMAZING WHAT DIVORCE CAN

DO WITH A CHILD'S LIFE.

IT IS BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? GOD

HEALS AND GOD PROTECTS YOUR

FAMILIES AND GOD IS WITH YOUR

FAMILY.

YES.

AND HER STORY IS AN

INSPIRATION AS TO HOW GOD

INTERVENES AND HE HEALS IT ALL

AND IT'S POSSIBLE. YOU KNOW WE

LOVE CELEBRATING LIVES THAT

HAVE BEEN RADICALLY CHANGED BY

THE POWER OF JESUS CHRIST. WE

KNOW THAT THESE STORIES BRING

HOPE, HEALING AND STRENGTH TO

YOU AT HOME BECAUSE WHEN WE

WITNESS WHAT GOD IS DOING IN

OTHER PEOPLES LIVES WE KNOW

THAT HE CAN DO IT FOR US. HE

CAN DO IT FOR YOU TODAY BUT WE

CAN'T DO THIS ALONE. IT TAKES

A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF

RESOURCES TO BRING THIS KIND OF

PROGRAMMING RIGHT INTO THE

HOMES OF THOSE WHO NEED IT

MOST. WE KNOW YOUR FINANCES

ARE VALUABLE AND IT MATTERS

WHERE YOU PUT THEM. IF YOU CAN

SEE AND FEEL THE IMPACT OF WHAT

WE ARE DOING, WOULD YOU

CONSIDER BECOMING A PARTNER

WITH US? WHEN YOU SOW YOUR

SEED INTO THIS MINISTRY YOU

WILL BE A PART OF TOUCHING

LIVES ACROSS THE COUNTRY, RIGHT

IN PEOPLES OWN LIVING ROOMS.

YOU TO CHOOSE TO STAND WITH US

TO ALSO PRAY WITH YOU. YOU

KNOW, SO MANY PEOPLE GET AN

OPPORTUNITY TO WATCH LAURA LYNN

AND I AND YOU GET POWERFUL

TESTIMONIES AND TRUTH BUT JUST

LIKE CHARLOTTE, YOU KNOW, IT

DOESN'T NECESSARILY CHANGE A

LIFE UNTIL YOU GIVE GOD YOUR

PERSONAL PERMISSION FRO HIS

HEAVENLY INTERVENTION. SHE

SAID, I WAS A CHURCHGOER BUT I

WAS NOT A CHRISTIAN BECAUSE I

DIDN'T WANT TO BE BORN AGAIN.

WE DIDN'T REALLY PRAY LIKE THAT.

WE DIDN'T TALK ABOUT JESUS THAT

WAY. WELL, I WANT YOU TO

UNDERSTAND. GOD DOESN'T JUST

MAKE BAD PEOPLE GOOD. HE MAKES

DEAD PEOPLE LIVE AND IT'S NOT

JUST ABOUT YOU JUST BEING ON A

CHURCH PEW BUT IT'S YOU HAVING

A PLACE IN HEAVEN. IN THE

LAMB'S BOOK OF LIGHT, YOUR NAME

BEING RECORDED. IF YOU HAVEN'T

SURRENDERED YOU HEART, REMEMBER

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I HAD TO

LEARN, IS I HAD TO RECEIVE THIS

GIFT. THAT GIFT IS NOT YOURS

UNTIL YOU RECEIVE IT. WHY

DON'T YOU RECEIVE THIS? PRAY

WITH ME. JESUS, I SURRENDER

TODAY. I CONFESS MY SIN.

PLEASE BE MY SAVIOR AND LORD.

IN JESUS NAME, AMEN.

AMEN. IF YOU JUST PRAYED

THAT PRAYER CALL US AT 1-855-
