Watch the 700 Club Canada for August 21, 2013 Read Transcript


HELLO, I'M BRIAN WARREN.

AND I'M LAURA LYNN TYLER

THOMPSON, AND WELCOME TO THE

SHOW. YOU KNOW BRIAN, I'M

WONDERING, AS A PASTOR, ARE THEE

SOME ISSUES THAT ARE DIFFICULT R

PEOPLE TO TALK ABOUT IN CHURCH.

YOU KNOW, THAT'S A GOOD

QUESTION. I THINK IF YOU SAY THE

BIG FIVE HOT POTATOES WOULD BE

A, NUMBER ONE DEPRESSION, AND

MENTAL ILLNESS, HOW WE DEAL WITH

THAT. WHEN WE HAVE SOMEONE IN

OUR FAMILY, WILL I GET IT AND HW

DO I DEAL WITH DEPRESSION. NUMBR

TWO IS SEX. I THINK THAT'S ONE F

THOSE BIG ISSUES PEOPLE WON'T

TALK ABOUT. MARRIAGE AND SEX, AD

THEN ALSO I THINK WE'RE AFRAID K

ABOUT SAME SEX AND HOW WE DEAL

WITH, YOU KNOW, THE ISSUES THATE

GOING ON IN SOCIETY. AND DRUG

ABUSE IS ONE OF THOSE BIG ONES.I

THINK THE NUMBER FIVE ONE THAT I

SEE THAT REALLY STRUGGLES IN THE

CHURCH RIGHT NOW IS WHAT DO WE

DO WITH EUTHANASIA, AND WHAT DO

WE DO WITH FAMILY MEMBERS THAT

ARE DEALING WITH GREAT SICKNESS.

RIGHT, AND WHAT IS IT ALL AB,

AND WHAT DOES GOD'S WORD HAVE

TO SAY ABOUT IT.

YOU'RE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT.

YEAH.

YOU KNOW ON TODAY'S SHOW YOUL

SEE HOW GOD IS SHINNING A LIGHTN

SOME DARK SUBJECTS THAT WE

DELIBERATELY ATTEMPT TO SWEEP

UNDER THE RUG.

JACKIE GOMMESIA UNDERWENT

GASTRO BYPASS SURGERY, BUT

INSTANTLY SHE BEGAN HAVING SEVEE

NAUSEA AND VOMITING. AND HER

HEALTH DETERIORATED OVER THE

COURSE OF A YEAR. WHEN IT WENT

FROM BAD TO WORSE SHE UNDERSTOOD

THAT THERE WAS SPIRITUAL WARFARE

GOING ON AROUND HER. YOU'LL SEEW

SHE WAS ABLE TO FIGHT BACK.

AND UNTIL RECENTLY SUICIDE HS

RARELY EVER BEEN DISCUSSED IN

CHURCHES. EVEN THOUGH MORE

PEOPLE DIE IN A YEAR FROM IT THN

A CAR ACCIDENT. BUT NOW, AFTER

A COMMON CHRISTIAN FAMILY, TWO

COMMON CHRISTIAN FAMILIES WERE

ROCKED BY SUICIDE, THE CHURCH IS

DOING ITS PART TO REACH OUT TO

THOSE SUFFERING FROM MENTAL

ILLNESS.

AND I'LL BE BACK OUT ON THE

STREETS TO DISCUSS FAITH, AND MT

ONE OF THE MOST SINCERE CANADIAS

AS HE DEALS WITH ISSUES THAT ARE

EASIER TO TRY AND FORGET.

BUT FIRST, HOW THE CHURCH IS

WORKING TO REMOVE THE STIGMA

OF MENTAL ILLNESS.

FRANK PAGE WAS ALONE AT HOME

WHEN THE CALL CAME THAT WOULD

CHANGE HIS WORLD. HIS THIRTY-TWO

YEAR OLD DAUGHTER MELISSA HAD

TAKEN HER LIFE. ALTHOUGH SHE

STRUGGLED FOR YEARS, PAGE KNEW

SOMETHING HAD CHANGED THAT WEEK.

TWO DAYS BEFORE SHE DIED I S,

"MELISSA, NO ONE LOVES YOU LIKE

YOUR DADDY. AND NOBODY KNOWS

YOU LIKE YOUR DADDY. AND I KNOW

SOMETHING'S WRONG, BAD WRONG.

BABY PLEASE." SHE WAS GETTING

READY TO GO TALK TO HER MENTAL

HEALTH PROFESSIONAL, "YOU TELL M

THAT YOUR DADDY THINKS THAT YOU

NEED TO BE HOSPITALIZED."

AS THE TOP LEADER FOR SOUTHEN

BAPTIST, PAGE SETS THE DIRECTION

FOR THE DOMINATIONS SIXTEEN

MILLION MEMBERS. HE'S ALSO SERVD

AS A MEGA CHURCH PASTOR. BUT PAE

CALLS PARENTING HIS OLDEST DAUGR

ONE OF HIS MOST DAUNTING

CHALLENGES. THAT'S WHY HE WROTE

MELISSA TO ENCOURAGE OTHERS ON A

SIMILAR JOURNEY, AND CHALLENGE E

CHURCH TO REACH OUT. PAGE AND HS

WIFE DALE RECENTLY INVITED CBN

NEWS TO THEIR NASHVILLE HOME TO

TALK ABOUT THEIR DAUGHTER. THEIR

ENDURING GRIEF, AND THEIR HOPE.

THE PAGES' SAY MELISSA ACCEPTED

CHRIST AS A CHILD, BUT HER LIFE

WASN'T EASY.

WE WORRIED ABOUT HER CONSTAN.

WANTED TO BE ABLE TO HELP HER.

BUT SHE STRUGGLED WITH ADDICE

ISSUES. BEHAVIORAL ISSUES, REBEN

ISSUES. SHE STRUGGLED IN MANY,

MANY WAYS RELATIONALLY. SHE WAS

GIFTED BEYOND WORDS, AND

STRUGGLED BEYOND WORDS.

IN HER TWENTIES, MELISSA READ

A PERIOD OF STABILITY. SHE MARRD

AND SEEMED HEADED ON A SMOOTHER

PATH. BUT THEN, A BOUT WITH CANR

LED TO A PRESCRIPTION PILL ADDI,

AND SHE SPIRALED DOWNWARD ONCE

AGAIN. THE PAGE'S SAY SHE NEVER

MENTIONED SUICIDE, LEAVING THEM

IN SHOCK THE DAY SHE DIED.

PEOPLE SAY, YOU KNOW, SHE

COMMITTED SUICIDE IN NOVEMBER,

AND WHAT WAS IT LIKE THE FIRST

CHRISTMAS? I DON'T REMEMBER.

I DON'T.

WE WERE STILL IN THAT FOG.

NOW THE SECOND CHRISTMAS I

WELL REMEMBER. THEN THE GRIEF

WAS EVEN WORSE FOR ME.

AFTER MORE THAN THREE YEARS,

THE PAGE'S DESCRIBE THEIR GRIEF

LIKE WAVES. CONTINUALLY ROLLING

IN, BUT VARYING IN FREQUENCY AND

INTENSITY. THEIR GREAT COMFORT

KNOWING MELISSA IS AT PEACE IN

HEAVEN. IT'S A BIBLICAL TRUTH TY

SAY OUR CULTURE HAS UNDERMINED.

PEOPLE WILL SAY, WELL IF YOU

COMMIT SUICIDE YOU'RE GOING TO

HELL.

IT'S A BELIEF THE PAGE'S WANE

CHURCH TO CHALLENGE.

THAT I THINK YOU HAVE TO GETO

THE POINT WHERE, YOU KNOW. IF YU

BELONG TO CHRIST, AND YOU'RE HIS

CHILD, THEN NOTHING CAN SEPARATE

YOU.

IT'S A FAMILY THING. AND FAMY

NEVER CHANGES.

MOVING FORWARD, THE PAGE'S

HOPE TO BUILD ON THE GROWING

NATIONAL AWARENESS OF MENTAL

HEALTH ISSUES. IT STARTED WITH T

YEARS NEW TOWN SHOOTINGS, AND

CONTINUED IN APRIL WITH THE

SUICIDE OF PASTOR RICK WARREN'S

SON.

I THINK THE TIMING IS FASCIN.

THAT INDEED ALL THESE THINGS HAE

HAPPENED IN A VERY SHORT PERIOD

OF TIME. AND I THINK GOD'S GOING

TO USE ALL THOSE THINGS, BAD TH,

TO BRING FORTH A MOVEMENT AMONG

GOD'S PEOPLE.

AT ITS ANNUAL CONVENTION IN

HOUSTON, THE DENOMINATION WILL

PROMOTE AWARENESS OF MENTAL

HEALTH ISSUES. PAGE HOPES TO BEN

TO EASE SOME OF THE STIGMA

SURROUNDING THESE ISSUES, AND TO

ENCOURAGE CHURCHES TO MORE

PROACTIVELY MINISTER TO THOSE WO

ARE SUFFERING.

THERE ARE LEGITIMATE SERIOUS

ISSUES PEOPLE STRUGGLE WITH. ANE

CHURCH NEEDS TO BE A PLACE WHERE

WE SAY WE UNDERSTAND.

FOR THOSE WALKING THROUGH GRF

OR DEPRESSION PAGE SAYS THE LOCL

CHURCH CAN HELP THROUGH SUPPORT

GROUPS, COUNSELING, OR SIMPLY

AWARENESS OF COMMUNITY RESOURCE.

IT'S AN ENORMOUS CHALLENGE, BUT

WITH MORE THAN THIRTY-SIX

THOUSAND PEOPLE TAKING THEIR

LIVES EACH YEAR, IT COULD MEET N

ENORMOUS NEED. HEATHER SELL,

CBN NEWS.

LAURA LYNN, WHEN I LOOK AT

DR. FRANK PAGE AND MELISSA'S

STORY, IT ACTUALLY OPENS UP SOME

DOORS IN MY OWN LIFE, AND

REMEMBERING MY OWN SISTER

COMMITTING SUICIDE. SOMETIMES

PEOPLE, THEY SEE THE GLORY. THEY

DON'T UNDERSTAND THE STORY OF WY

YOU'RE SO ADAMANT ABOUT CERTAIN

THINGS, BUT IT'S SOME OF THE MOT

PAINFUL THINGS THAT A FAMILY CAO

THROUGH WHEN THEY HAVE

SOMEONE STRUGGLING WITH MENTAL

ILLNESS. AND IT'S NOT A SHAME TO

TALK ABOUT IT.

NO, AND IN FACT THE CHURCH, U

KNOW. PASTOR'S OUT THERE, THE

CHURCH SHOULD BE THE SAFEST

PLACE FOR PEOPLE TO COME AND TO

FIND HEALING. AND TO BE ABLE TO

SHARE THEIR STORIES TOGETHER. IT

SHOULD BE A SAFE PLACE. WE DON'T

NEED TO BE EMBARRASSED. UP NEXT,

FLESH EATING DISEASE SEEMED BAD

ENOUGH, BUT IT WAS ONLY JUST THE

BEGINNING OF JACKIE GOMMESIA'S

ONGOING BATTLE.

I WAS HELPLESS. WHEN YOU DONT

HAVE YOUR HEALTH WITH YOU. YOU'E

POWERLESS. YOU'RE NOT IN CONTROL

OF ANYTHING ANYMORE. IT WAS A

REAL WAR.

JACKIE GOMMESIA IMMIGRATED

TO THE U.S. FROM AFRICA TO PURSE

THE AMERICAN DREAM. BUT WITH ALL

HER SUCCESS SHE NEVER EXPECTED

HER LIFE WOULD END IN A MATTER F

HOURS FROM A VIRULENT FLESH EATG

BACTERIA.

SEVEN OUT OF TEN PEOPLE WHO

CONTRACT THIS BACTERIA DIE WITHN

TWENTY-FOUR HOURS.

HER HEALTH PROBLEMS STEMMED

FROM WEIGHT ISSUES THAT RAN IN R

FAMILY.

MY WHOLE LIFE I'VE BEEN OVERT

AND IT MOVED TO MORBID OBESITY.

BY THE TIME I TURNED THIRTY-SIXS

ALREADY WEIGHING TWO HUNDRED

AND SIXTY-SEVEN POUNDS, AND I WS

JUST FIVE FEET. I DID EVERY DIET

PROGRAM OUT THERE, AND IT DIDN'T

WORK FOR ME.

JACKIE STUDIED NURSING IN AM,

AND AFTER GRADUATING HER DREAMS

BECAME A REALITY.

I STARTED MAKING A LOT OF MO.

BIG CARS, BIG HOME, DESIGNER

CLOTHES, THAT WAS ALL I WANTED.I

FELT HAPPY. I WAS IN CONTROL OFY

LIFE.

SHE MARRIED HENRY, A

CHRISTIAN MAN, AND BEGAN GOING O

CHURCH WITH HIM. BUT HER WEIGHT

WAS INTERFERING WITH HER HEALTH,

AND HER CAREER.

I COULDN'T CLIMB STAIRS. I CT

WALK. I HAD SLEEP APNEA. I COULT

BREATH, AND I KNEW THAT IF I DIT

DO SOMETHING DRASTIC I WASN'T GG

TO LIVE FOR TOO LONG.

JACKIE'S DOCTOR REFERRED HERO

A WORLD RENOWNED GASTRIC BYPASS

SURGEON IN BRAZIL. THERE THE

PROCEDURE WOULD COST HALF THE PE

OF WHAT IT WAS IN THE STATES. BT

HENRY WASN'T SURE THIS WAS THE

BEST SOLUTION.

HENRY WAS ABSOLUTELY CONCERND

AND EVEN AGAINST THE FACT THAT I

SHOULD DO THE SURGERY.

I SAID THAT'S YOUR CHOICE, AD

THAT WAS IT. BUT THAT DIDN'T MEN

I SHOULDN'T SUPPORT HER.

SHE FLEW TO BRAZIL AND UNDERT

THE SURGERY. SHORTLY AFTER HER Y

REJECTED THE CHANGES.

I STARTED HAVING SIDE EFFECTF

THAT SURGERY. SEVERE NAUSEA AND

VOMITING. THE NEXT YEAR I WAS IN

AND OUT OF THE EMERGENCY ROOM

ABOUT NINE TIMES. MY HEALTH WAS

DETERIORATING.

AS WAS HER AMERICAN DREAM.

I COULDN'T WORK FOR SOME TIME

AND THE CAR GOT REPOSSESSED. WED

LOST THE HOME THAT I HAD BOUGHTD

WE HAD TO LOOK FOR A SMALLER PL.

JACKIE DROPPED TO AN ASTONISG

EIGHTY-SEVEN POUNDS, AND WAS

ONCE AGAIN HOSPITALIZED.

I BECAME CRITICAL. I WAS SICM

DEHYDRATION, MAL ABSORPTION. THE

DOCTOR'S DECIDED THAT THEY WERE

GOING TO DO A REVISION OF THAT

SURGERY IN ORDER TO GET ME BACK

TO HEALTH.

BUT BEFORE SHE COULD HAVE THE

SURGERY A NEW COMPLICATION

AROSE. JACKIE WAS TRANSFERRED TO

AN EMERGENCY MEDICAL CENTER.

WHEN I WOKE UP IN THE HOSPITL

I DIDN'T EVEN REALIZE WHERE I W.

I SAW HENRY BY MY SIDE, AND THE

DOCTOR'S HAD TOLD HENRY THAT

WE'RE NOT SURE IF YOUR WIFE WILL

MAKE IT. SHE HAS CONTRACTED

THIS FLESH EATING BACTERIA KNOWN

AS NECROTIZING FASCIITIS.

THE BACTERIA HAD ALREADY EATN

THIRTY-SIX PERCENT OF JACKIE'S ,

AND HER ORGANS WERE ON THE

VERGE OF FAILING. HENRY IMMEDIAY

CALLED THEIR FRIENDS, AND THE

700 CLUB TO PRAY FOR JACKIE.

HENRY HAS ALWAYS BEEN A MAN F

FAITH.

THERE IS NO PLACE WE DIDN'T

TOUCH, BECAUSE IT WAS ABOUT

(INAUDIBLE).

AS THE PRAYERS POURED IN JACE

QUICKLY REALIZED SHE WAS DEALINH

MORE THAN A PHYSICAL BATTLE.

I LAID IN BED AND THIS CRATE

RIGHT ABOVE ME. I WENT INTO THIS

(INAUDIBLE) THAT I STARTED SEEIG

THINGS AS IF THEY WERE REAL. I D

SEE A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT I

RECOGNIZED FROM BACK IN AFRICA,

AND THEY CAME WITH A WITCH

DOCTOR. AND THE WITCH DOCTOR WAS

DRESSED IN ALL IN BLACK.

THEY THREATENED TO KILL JACKE

WITH A DEVICE THEY HAD WITH

THEM.

THEY WOULD PUMP THE MACHINE.

AND WHEN THEY PUMPED THE

MACHINE, I COULD FEEL THE PAIN N

DIFFERENT PORTIONS IN MY BODY. T

WENT ON, AND ON AND ON. IS THIS

FOR REAL? IT WAS VERY TORMENTIN.

FOR THREE DAYS THE DEMONIC

VISITORS TORMENTED JACKIE. AND

THE PAIN AND AGONY CONTINUED.

I DID HAVE KIDNEY FAILURE. IU

LOOKED AT THE WOUNDS THAT I HAVE

FROM MY GROIN DOWN TO MY THIGHS

YOU WOULDN'T EVEN BELIEVE THAT I

WAS GOING TO SURVIVE. EITHER I S

GOING TO GET AMPUTATED. THEY WEE

GOING TO CUT MY LEGS OR SOMETHI.

I HAD A SMALL STILL VOICE THAT D

ME TO PROCLAIM THE BLOOD OF JES.

BUT I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT THE BLOOD

OF JESUS MEANT. AND I THOUGHT

TO MYSELF YOU EITHER SEE AND SEE

IF IT WORKS, OR YOU JUST LAY THE

AND DIE. THE VOODOO PEOPLE

DIDN'T GIVE UP. THEY WERE FIGHTG

ME. I KEPT ON SINGING THE BLOODF

JESUS, THE BLOOD OF JESUS. ONE

AFTER THE OTHER, THEY ABANDONED

THE EQUIPMENT, AND THEY LEFT.

THE PAIN AND BACTERIA ALSO LT

JACKIE'S BODY. AMAZING THE

MEDICAL STAFF.

AND I SAID, "WOW, THAT THING

WORKED. THERE MUST BE POWER IN

THE BLOOD OF JESUS." THAT WAS TE

POWER OF REVELATION.

JACKIE BEGAN THE ROAD TO REC.

WHILE I WAS RECOVERING FOR TO

YEARS, PHYSICALLY, I WAS DRASTIY

GROWING SPIRITUALLY. I HAD

DEVELOPED THAT HUNGER FOR THE

THINGS OF GOD. AND THE THINGS OE

SUPERNATURAL, AND THINGS JUST GT

BETTER AS I PURSUED HIM. AND I

SAID, "LORD JESUS CHRIST, COME O

MY HEART. I MAKE YOU MY LORD AND

SAVIOR. FORGIVE ME OF MY SINS. M

THIS DAY FORWARD I LIVE FOR YOU.

JACKIE HAS FULLY RECOVERED. E

AND HENRY USE HER MIRACLE STORY

TO SHARE GOD'S LOVE WITH OTHERS.

OUT THERE, THERE ARE PEOPLE O

NEED TO KNOW THE SAVING GRACE OF

GOD. THE HEALING POWER OF GOD.

THIS IS ALL A MIRACLE, AND ONLYD

CAN DO THIS. ONLY GOD DOES THE

IMPOSSIBLE. YOU TRULY WANT TO KW

THAT GOD HEALS? TRY HIM FOR

YOURSELF, AND SEE HIM SHOW UP

AND DO GREAT THINGS FOR YOU.

I WONDER IF YOU THOUGHT LIKEI

THOUGHT. CAN ANYTHING ELSE HAPPN

IN JACKIE'S LIFE?

RIGHT, SOMETIMES IT SEEMS THT

PEOPLE HAVE MORE THAN THEIR FAIR

SHARE. IT'S A JOB EXPERIENCE YOU

KNOW? JOB WENT THROUGH TRIAL AFR

TRIAL, AND SOMETIMES WE ALL GETO

THAT PLACE. WE FEEL LIKE IT'S EH

GOD, I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN TAKE

MORE.

UM-HUM. YOU KNOW, JACKIE

GOMMESIA IS TRULY A WITNESS ANDI

BELIEVE WHAT GOD HAS DONE TODAY

HAS ALLOWED YOU TO SEE THE

BEGINNING, AND ALSO THE END. ANI

LOVE WHAT THE GREEK SAYS, FINIS

ORIGINE PENDET. THE END DEPENDS

ON THE BEGINNING. YOU KNOW LIKE

SO MANY PEOPLE, SHE WAS

SCRAMBLING AROUND. SHE STRUGGLED

WITH HER WEIGHT, OBESITY. HAD

ONE PROCEDURE IT WENT WRONG.

ANOTHER PROCEDURE CAME IN, AND

SHE SAID, "MOST OF THE PEOPLE DE

WITHIN TWENTY-FOUR HOURS OF THIS

FLESH EATING DISEASE." BUT THE

BEAUTIFUL THING OF WHAT SHE HAD,

IS A PRAYING HUSBAND. AND A

HUSBAND THAT SAID, "YOU KNOW. YS

I ENCOURAGE YOU TO GO," BUT HE O

SAID, "I'M GOING TO PRAY FOR MY

WIFE AND I'M GOING TO HANG IN

THERE WITH HER." AND SHE FOUND

OUT THAT THERE WAS SPIRITUAL

WARFARE GOING ON. I BELIEVE THAT

GOD WANTS A NEW DAY IN YOUR LIF,

AND I'D LIKE YOU TO CALL. I'M GG

TO LEAD YOU IN A PRAYER SHORTLYT

THIS PARTICULAR RESOURCE, "A NEW

DAY," IT'S A NEW DAY FOR YOU.

YOUR BEST DAYS ARE AHEAD OF YOU.

THEY ARE NOT BEHIND YOU. GOD HAS

GOOD STUFF IN STORE. LISTEN TO T

THE BIBLE SAYS IN ISAIAH CHAPTER

THIRTY. THE OLD TESTAMENT PROPHT

SAYS THIS IN VERSE EIGHTEEN.

"THEREFORE THE LORD WILL WAIT, T

HE MAY GRACIOUS UNTO YOU, AND

THEREFORE WILL BE EXALTED. THAT

HE MAY HAVE MERCY ON YOU." I

BELIEVE THIS IS THE MOMENT OF

MERCY. WHEN YOU'VE RUN OUT OF

EVERY OTHER RECOURSE, AND NOW

YOU THROW YOUR HANDS UP. MERCY

COMES IN WHEN EVERYTHING ELSE HS

BEEN EXHAUSTED. BUT NOW WHAT YOU

HAVE TO DO IS PUT UP THE WHITE

FLAG. WHY DON'T YOU PRAY THIS

PRAYER WITH ME? JESUS, I KNOW

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS, BUT NOW I

TRUST YOU TO BE MY LORD AND

SAVIOR. PLEASE COME INTO MY HEA.

MAKE ME THE PERSON YOU WANT ME

TO BE. I GIVE YOU MY PERSONAL

PERMISSION FOR YOUR HEAVENLY

INTERVENTION. IN JESUS NAME I

PRAY, AMEN.

AMEN. IF YOU JUST PRAYED THAT

PRAYER WITH BRIAN, WOULD YOU CAL

IS A TRUTH WHEN YOU ARE GOD'S CD

THAT HE WILL ALLOW CERTAIN THINO

HAPPEN SO THAT WE WILL BE PERFED

IN OUR FAITH, BECAUSE MAYBE YOU

LIKE ME KNOW THAT WHEN SOMETHING

HITS YOU, THAT YOU CANNOT HANDLE

YOURSELF. THERE'S NO OTHER PLACO

GO BUT TO GOD. THERE IS NO OTHER

PERSON ON THIS EARTH THAT CAN HP

2 CORINTHIANS 1: 3-4 SAYS, "PRAE

TO THE GOD. THE FATHER OF OUR LD

JESUS CHRIST. THE FATHER OF

COMPASSION AND THE GOD OF ALL

COMFORT. HE IS YOUR GOD OF

COMFORT WHO COMFORTS US IN ALL

OUR TROUBLES SO THAT WE CAN

BETRAYAL FROM ONE THAT WE THOUGT

OUR DEFENSE. WE PRAY LIKE WE HAE

NEVER PRAYED, AND STILL WE SEE T

WE MUST GO THROUGH WHAT WE DID

NOT WANT TO EMBRACE. EVENTS WE

CANNOT CONTROL UNFOLD, AND YET

AS WE PRESS INTO GOD ALONE FOR

THE ANSWERS. THERE IS A STRANGE

AND BEAUTIFUL PEACE THAT NOW

COMES OVER US. WE KNOW THAT THEE

IS ONE WHO IS GREATER THAN US. O

KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT WILL TRANSPI,

AND HE HAS DESTINED A VICTORY SO

POWERFUL. IT IS SO AWE INSPIRING

THAT FOR THE JOY THAT IS SET BEE

FAITH. WE KNOW THAT OUR RESPONSE

THE BLOOD, THE SWEAT AND THE TES

HAVE BEEN SHED, THERE IS ONLY OE

CHOICE. ABSOLUTE AND COMPLETE

CONCLUSION TO THE SUFFERING. ITS

AN APPOINTED DAY. A SET TIME WHN

IT IS FINISHED. A HUSH QUIET A S

US. EMERGING FROM A DARK PLACE E

SEE THAT THERE IS A LIGHT SO

MAGNIFICENT THAT WE CAN BARELY

LOOK AT IT. A BEAUTIFUL SCAR. IT

USHERS IN THE RESURRECTION OF OR

OF OUR DREAMS. A RESTORATION OF

ALL THAT WAS TAKEN, AND A FINAL

GLORIOUS MOMENT WHEN THE

DISASTER THAT WE THOUGHT WOULD

KILL US HAS ACTUALLY TAUGHT US O

LIVE. WE HAVE LEARNED TO GAZE IO

THE EYES OF JESUS. HE KNOWS OUR

PLIGHT. HE IS ACQUAINTED WITH OR

SUFFERING. HE HELD OUR HAND

THROUGH THE DARK NIGHT OF THE S,

AND HE WAS THE ONLY ONE. HE IS E

ONLY ONE WHO WILL NEVER LEAVE YR

1-855-759-0700. WELL, UP NEXT,

A HIGHLIGHT FOR LAURA LYNN. WHAT

YOU BELIEVE CANADA, AND THIS IS

DEVIN'S STORY.

DEVIN, DO YOU BELIEVE IN

MIRACLES AND DO YOU BELIEVE YOUR

LIFE HAS BEEN DIVINELY ORCHESTR?

I DO. I BELIEVE THERE IS A GD

I BELIEVE THAT JESUS WAS ALWAYS

THERE FROM THE BEGINNING. EVEN

DURING THE TIMES THAT I WAS GOIG

THROUGH THE ROUGH PATCHES. EVEN

DURING MY YOUTH. I REMEMBER

THINKING AFTER IT HAD ALREADY

HAPPENED, I REMEMBER THINKING TO

MYSELF WHY AM I THE WAY I AM? I

LOOKED AT MY BROTHERS AND SISTES

AND WE ALL HAVE SOME SORT OF

MENTAL DISABILITY. SOME SORT OF

SOMETHING. LIKE, I'M MORE ABLE

TO THINK ABOUT MY STEPS YOU KNO?

I'M MORE ABLE TO KNOW RIGHT FROM

WRONG THAN THEY ARE. AND COMING

FROM MY BACKGROUND I THINK THAT

ITSELF IS A MIRACLE. RIGHT?

YES.

LIKE I HAVE FAS. I HAVE ADHDD

POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER,T

I'M STILL ABLE TO MAKE BIG LIFE

DECISIONS.

WHEN DID YOU MEET JESUS?

IT WAS ACTUALLY DURING THE TI

WAS HOMELESS, AND I WOULD GO TO

THE SHELTER, AND IT WAS A CHRISN

SHELTER. ANYWAYS, ON SUNDAY

MORNINGS I FOUND OUT THAT THIS

CHURCH CLOSE BY GAVE OUT FREE

COFFEE. SO I STARTED GOING THERR

COFFEE. BUT ONE DAY I HAD GRABBD

MY COFFEE AND I LEFT, AND THIS Y

CAME OUT OUT OF NOWHERE. AND

THEN HE ASKED ME, "DO YOU BELIEE

GOD CAN SPEAK TO PEOPLE?" AND

THEN HE LOOKED AT ME AND SAID, O

YOU THINK GOD CAN SPEAK TO YOU?I

SAID, "NO, I DON'T THINK GOD CAN

SPEAK TO ME. I'VE NEVER HEARD HS

VOICE BEFORE. WHY WOULDN'T HE

SPEAK TO ME BEFORE?" AND HE

SAID, "WELL, I GUESS THAT'S WHEE

WE DISAGREE. I BELIEVE GOD CAN

SPEAK TO YOU, AND TODAY HE SPOKE

TO ME ABOUT YOU. AND HE SAID HE

WANTS TO USE YOU TO CHANGE THE

LIFE OF OTHER PEOPLE."

SO DEVIN, ARE YOU STILL SERVD

TODAY?

I DON'T THINK I AM.

SO DO YOU THINK YOU NEED TO

CHANGE THAT?

I THINK MY PRIDE GETS IN THEY

A LOT, AND ALSO MY ADDICTIONS WH

ALCOHOL GETS IN THE WAY AS WELL.

HOW ABOUT WE PRAY RIGHT NOW

DEVIN, THAT YOU SUBMIT YOUR WHOE

LIFE TO JESUS WHOSE BEEN CALLING

YOU, AND HAS A PURPOSE AND A PLN

FOR YOU?

FATHER, I JUST COME TO YOU TY
