  • To yours. - Come on.
  • 00:00:02.180 --> 00:00:02.240
  • - And I prayed that everyday.
  • 00:00:03.090 --> 00:00:05.290
  • Every single day for like 14 months straight.
  • 00:00:05.290 --> 00:00:09.030
  • I confessed everybody. - That's it.
  • 00:00:09.030 --> 00:00:10.270
  • - Everything, every issue, I looked in his Word, I found out
  • 00:00:10.270 --> 00:00:13.280
  • how to speak life, 'cause I said I want your stuff and
  • 00:00:13.280 --> 00:00:16.270
  • none of mine.
  • 00:00:16.270 --> 00:00:18.110
  • And that is the only way you're gonna change it completely.
  • 00:00:18.110 --> 00:00:20.290
  • You gotta get God's mind. - That's right.
  • 00:00:20.290 --> 00:00:22.200
  • - So you need to lose your mind, find his mind, so that you
  • 00:00:22.200 --> 00:00:26.010
  • can become who he created you to be.
  • 00:00:26.010 --> 00:00:28.010
  • And all of that other stuff won't even matter no more.
  • 00:00:28.010 --> 00:00:30.050
  • So what I want him to do, be blind?
  • 00:01:04.230 --> 00:01:06.090
  • He ain't gotta follow him but he saw 'em, I saw 'em.
  • 00:01:06.090 --> 00:01:08.060
  • I saw her butt, the girl is bad.
  • 00:01:08.060 --> 00:01:10.040
  • I saw her, she's amazing.
  • 00:01:10.040 --> 00:01:11.180
  • He's not supposed to see it?
  • 00:01:11.180 --> 00:01:12.250
  • Now I'm insecure because he saw it?
  • 00:01:12.250 --> 00:01:14.150
  • Not because he followed it because he saw it.
  • 00:01:14.150 --> 00:01:16.070
  • I was terribly, terribly insecure so when this happened it
  • 00:01:16.070 --> 00:01:18.250
  • was just magnified.
  • 00:01:18.250 --> 00:01:20.180
  • I was like,
  • 00:01:20.180 --> 00:01:21.140
  • I ain't nothin'.
  • 00:01:21.140 --> 00:01:23.070
  • I'm not smart, I don't have discernment,
  • 00:01:23.070 --> 00:01:26.210
  • I'm just, I'm not anything.
  • 00:01:26.210 --> 00:01:28.080
  • He didn't just cheat on me with one person, he cheated on me
  • 00:01:28.130 --> 00:01:30.080
  • with everybody in the whole world.
  • 00:01:30.080 --> 00:01:31.210
  • - [Erica] You asked why didn't I know.
  • 00:01:31.210 --> 00:01:32.250
  • Why didn't I see it.
  • 00:01:32.250 --> 00:01:33.260
  • - I was like, why didn't I.
  • 00:01:33.260 --> 00:01:35.140
  • I've talked about these women and I just got
  • 00:01:35.140 --> 00:01:36.210
  • played like them.
  • 00:01:36.210 --> 00:01:38.060
  • I'm these dumb basketball chicks, I'm like one of 'em.
  • 00:01:38.060 --> 00:01:40.040
  • All of these things was rippin' me.
  • 00:01:40.040 --> 00:01:43.130
  • Uh-oh, sorry.
  • 00:01:43.130 --> 00:01:44.110
  • - The dumb basketball chicks.
  • 00:01:44.110 --> 00:01:45.170
  • - I'm sorry.
  • 00:01:45.170 --> 00:01:46.120
  • God bless y'all women.
  • 00:01:46.120 --> 00:01:47.270
  • That's what I felt, you know what I'm saying?
  • 00:01:47.270 --> 00:01:49.100
  • I repented, I was judgin' y'all, my bad but that's what I
  • 00:01:49.100 --> 00:01:50.100
  • felt so I said it.
  • 00:01:51.060 --> 00:01:52.140
  • - [Dee Dee] They not here, they not here.
  • 00:01:52.140 --> 00:01:53.210
  • - If y'all gone watch, I don't know.
  • 00:01:53.210 --> 00:01:55.060
  • If y'all gone tell somebody, anybody got they thing on they
  • 00:01:55.060 --> 00:01:56.280
  • gone tell 'em.
  • 00:01:56.280 --> 00:01:58.050
  • I was like, I'm like these dumb chicks?
  • 00:01:58.050 --> 00:01:59.260
  • So I just felt like I lost all my confidence.
  • 00:01:59.260 --> 00:02:02.100
  • 'Cause I was like, you ain't nothin'.
  • 00:02:02.100 --> 00:02:05.160
  • I did.
  • 00:02:05.160 --> 00:02:06.140
  • I felt like you ain't nothin'.
  • 00:02:06.140 --> 00:02:07.120
  • But I had to take that to God.
  • 00:02:07.120 --> 00:02:08.260
  • So since I said I ain't nothin'.
  • 00:02:08.260 --> 00:02:10.270
  • First of all, life and death is in your mouth.
  • 00:02:10.270 --> 00:02:12.190
  • I just told the devil I ain't nothin', he said, "I could
  • 00:02:12.190 --> 00:02:14.090
  • "work with that."
  • 00:02:14.090 --> 00:02:15.240
  • So he just continued to magnify everything that I
  • 00:02:15.240 --> 00:02:17.190
  • thought I wasn't.
  • 00:02:17.190 --> 00:02:19.040
  • He continued to magnify, her butt is bigger, she smile
  • 00:02:19.040 --> 00:02:20.190
  • better, she probably did this better, she probably
  • 00:02:20.190 --> 00:02:22.180
  • did that better.
  • 00:02:22.180 --> 00:02:24.040
  • Then, I was the kind of woman that needed to know everything
  • 00:02:24.040 --> 00:02:25.190
  • 'cause I wanted to take her to the Lord in prayer so I was
  • 00:02:25.190 --> 00:02:27.070
  • tormented by all the information that I took in 'cause I
  • 00:02:27.070 --> 00:02:29.120
  • took it all in.
  • 00:02:29.120 --> 00:02:30.270
  • I said, ain't nobody better not ever tell me anything that
  • 00:02:30.270 --> 00:02:32.220
  • you didn't tell me so tell it all to me.
  • 00:02:32.220 --> 00:02:34.280
  • So that thing dang dang near killed me.
  • 00:02:34.280 --> 00:02:36.210
  • But God kept me through that process but I
  • 00:02:36.210 --> 00:02:38.230
  • was terribly insecure.
  • 00:02:38.230 --> 00:02:40.130
  • I just felt like I was nothin' and I had to take
  • 00:02:40.130 --> 00:02:42.040
  • that to God.
  • 00:02:42.040 --> 00:02:43.100
  • Either I'mma let this kill me, - Pause.
  • 00:02:43.100 --> 00:02:45.030
  • Or you gone heal me. - Tina pause.
  • 00:02:45.030 --> 00:02:45.280
  • - Yes.
  • 00:02:45.280 --> 00:02:47.120
  • - Do you think it's necessary to know detail?
  • 00:02:47.120 --> 00:02:49.190
  • - I don't recommend that for everyone.
  • 00:02:49.190 --> 00:02:51.150
  • I do not recommend that for everyone.
  • 00:02:51.150 --> 00:02:53.180
  • I wanted to know play by play, point by point.
  • 00:02:53.180 --> 00:02:56.080
  • Who was good at what, what did you do to them, where did
  • 00:02:56.080 --> 00:02:58.180
  • you do it?
  • 00:02:58.180 --> 00:02:59.260
  • Show me these hotels as we passing by.
  • 00:02:59.260 --> 00:03:01.150
  • How many times, did she like this, did she like that, was
  • 00:03:01.150 --> 00:03:02.200
  • she better than me in this area.
  • 00:03:02.200 --> 00:03:04.050
  • Then I said, what was they doing that I didn't do 'cause I
  • 00:03:04.050 --> 00:03:06.080
  • don't ever want you to crave anything and this hurts me to
  • 00:03:06.080 --> 00:03:08.050
  • my heart to have to ask you what you was lookin' for in them
  • 00:03:08.050 --> 00:03:10.140
  • that you didn't find in me.
  • 00:03:10.140 --> 00:03:11.290
  • I was like, I wanna heal and I wanna be all the way better.
  • 00:03:11.290 --> 00:03:14.230
  • And I said, I know me.
  • 00:03:14.230 --> 00:03:16.070
  • If you don't tell me everything I'm forgiving I'm liable to
  • 00:03:16.070 --> 00:03:18.020
  • take my forgiveness back.
  • 00:03:18.020 --> 00:03:19.030
  • Tell me what I gotta forgive.
  • 00:03:19.030 --> 00:03:20.040
  • Give me all of it.
  • 00:03:20.040 --> 00:03:21.260
  • You know what I mean? - She said it.
  • 00:03:21.260 --> 00:03:22.210
  • She said it.
  • 00:03:22.210 --> 00:03:23.250
  • But Tina, - I gave God my truth.
  • 00:03:23.250 --> 00:03:25.110
  • I said I wanna forgive all the way so I have to know.
  • 00:03:25.110 --> 00:03:28.070
  • - I believe that he was dealing with the sexual inventory
  • 00:03:28.070 --> 00:03:30.190
  • that he wasn't delivered from. - Absolutely.
  • 00:03:30.190 --> 00:03:32.030
  • - I don't think any of them were better than you.
  • 00:03:32.030 --> 00:03:33.280
  • - [Tina] Oh, I know that now.
  • 00:03:33.280 --> 00:03:35.230
  • - But I'm saying for them.
  • 00:03:35.230 --> 00:03:37.100
  • You have to know that. - And that's the trick.
  • 00:03:37.100 --> 00:03:38.190
  • And that's the trick.
  • 00:03:38.190 --> 00:03:39.260
  • It's a sexual inventory.
  • 00:03:39.260 --> 00:03:41.160
  • Boris Kodjoe sat there and said the same thing.
  • 00:03:41.160 --> 00:03:46.060
  • He called it an international.
  • 00:03:46.060 --> 00:03:48.210
  • - Something, I can't remember.
  • 00:03:50.200 --> 00:03:52.250
  • - [Audience Members] Research.
  • 00:03:52.250 --> 00:03:54.120
  • - International research. - International research.
  • 00:03:54.120 --> 00:03:56.130
  • - Oh.
  • 00:03:56.130 --> 00:03:57.080
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:03:57.080 --> 00:03:59.000
  • - [Warryn] Amen.
  • 00:03:59.000 --> 00:04:00.060
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:04:00.060 --> 00:04:01.110
  • - Loose here.
  • 00:04:01.110 --> 00:04:02.120
  • - I thought that was quite kinda fly too.
  • 00:04:04.030 --> 00:04:06.270
  • But
  • 00:04:06.270 --> 00:04:07.220
  • the first thing he did because there's some
  • 00:04:08.270 --> 00:04:12.000
  • intendees here.
  • 00:04:12.000 --> 00:04:13.070
  • They're intended
  • 00:04:14.230 --> 00:04:16.140
  • My daddy would've been here in that group.
  • 00:04:16.140 --> 00:04:19.120
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:04:19.120 --> 00:04:21.200
  • - [Teddy] Yeah we heard about that backstage.
  • 00:04:21.200 --> 00:04:23.130
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:04:23.130 --> 00:04:24.110
  • - [Teddy] It was awesome.
  • 00:04:24.110 --> 00:04:25.050
  • - Pray for me, Teddy.
  • 00:04:25.050 --> 00:04:25.280
  • That's awesome?
  • 00:04:25.280 --> 00:04:27.130
  • - [Teddy] The way you was explaining it was good.
  • 00:04:27.130 --> 00:04:27.290
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:04:27.290 --> 00:04:28.240
  • One of the first things he said he did is
  • 00:04:31.010 --> 00:04:34.130
  • entering himself into therapy.
  • 00:04:35.120 --> 00:04:37.270
  • He said he knew he was gone marry Nicole.
  • 00:04:39.110 --> 00:04:42.240
  • He had this international research going on for years.
  • 00:04:44.070 --> 00:04:48.050
  • And he put himself into therapy.
  • 00:04:50.130 --> 00:04:53.030
  • - If you don't do it before you're gonna do it afterwards.
  • 00:04:55.190 --> 00:04:57.170
  • - Yeah.
  • 00:04:57.170 --> 00:04:58.230
  • And so it was almost like a detox.
  • 00:04:58.230 --> 00:05:01.210
  • Let's get all this stuff out that I done had in my thinking.
  • 00:05:01.210 --> 00:05:05.130
  • See it's that soul, that's your mind.
  • 00:05:05.130 --> 00:05:08.180
  • And what you mentioned about one being better,
  • 00:05:08.180 --> 00:05:12.060
  • nobody can compete when that image is established.
  • 00:05:12.060 --> 00:05:15.010
  • - Absolutely. - That's good.
  • 00:05:15.010 --> 00:05:16.070
  • - [Tina] That's why God has to restore that.
  • 00:05:16.070 --> 00:05:18.210
  • You don't do it from sex, you don't do it from getting
  • 00:05:18.210 --> 00:05:20.210
  • pretty you don't do it from getting skinny.
  • 00:05:20.210 --> 00:05:22.050
  • You don't do it from being bought, you have to tell God.
  • 00:05:22.050 --> 00:05:24.200
  • I said, God who am I?
  • 00:05:24.200 --> 00:05:26.180
  • 'Cause now I don't know. - Come on, come on.
  • 00:05:26.180 --> 00:05:28.010
  • - And now I'm looking at them trying to figure out who
  • 00:05:28.010 --> 00:05:29.070
  • should I be?
  • 00:05:29.070 --> 00:05:30.060
  • Who am I?
  • 00:05:30.060 --> 00:05:31.210
  • And I said, God, help me to believe your opinion and your
  • 00:05:31.210 --> 00:05:33.260
  • and your thought of me more than everybody else.
  • 00:05:33.260 --> 00:05:35.250
  • Otherwise I'mma be changing my mind all the time.
  • 00:05:35.250 --> 00:05:37.250
  • Take this mind and conform it
  • 00:05:37.250 --> 00:05:40.000
  • To yours. - Come on.
  • 00:05:40.000 --> 00:05:41.010
  • - And I prayed that everyday.
  • 00:05:41.010 --> 00:05:44.060
  • Every single day for like 14 months straight.
  • 00:05:44.060 --> 00:05:47.100
  • I confessed everybody. - That's it.
  • 00:05:47.100 --> 00:05:49.040
  • - Everything, every issue, I looked in his Word, I found out
  • 00:05:49.040 --> 00:05:52.050
  • how to speak life, 'cause I said I want your stuff and
  • 00:05:52.050 --> 00:05:54.030
  • how to speak life, 'cause I said I want your stuff and
  • 00:05:54.030 --> 00:05:55.040
  • none of mine.
  • 00:05:55.040 --> 00:05:56.180
  • And that is the only way you're gonna change it completely.
  • 00:05:56.180 --> 00:05:59.060
  • You gotta get God's mind. - That's right.
  • 00:05:59.060 --> 00:06:00.290
  • - So you need to lose your mind, find his mind, so that you
  • 00:06:00.290 --> 00:06:04.100
  • can become who he created you to be.
  • 00:06:04.100 --> 00:06:06.100
  • And all of that other stuff won't even matter no more.
  • 00:06:06.100 --> 00:06:08.140
  • And all of that other stuff won't even matter no more.
  • 00:06:08.140 --> 00:06:08.170
  • And that don't have to take you 15 years, 18 years, three,
  • 00:06:09.210 --> 00:06:11.160
  • four, five years, it doesn't - Come on.
  • 00:06:11.160 --> 00:06:13.050
  • - I said, God I got a year.
  • 00:06:13.050 --> 00:06:14.200
  • I can't do crazy 'cause I be done killed somebody.
  • 00:06:14.200 --> 00:06:16.180
  • You got to get me out of this.
  • 00:06:16.180 --> 00:06:17.290
  • I know me, God.
  • 00:06:17.290 --> 00:06:19.140
  • You know what you foolin' with so I don't even have to
  • 00:06:19.140 --> 00:06:20.120
  • tell you this.
  • 00:06:20.120 --> 00:06:22.030
  • If you don't fix my mind somebody gone go to hell with me.
  • 00:06:22.030 --> 00:06:24.100
  • So you got to.
  • 00:06:24.100 --> 00:06:25.080
  • I said, what do I have to do?
  • 00:06:25.080 --> 00:06:27.000
  • I give you everything.
  • 00:06:27.000 --> 00:06:28.140
  • And because I was in the healing process I kept taking some
  • 00:06:28.140 --> 00:06:30.130
  • of it back.
  • 00:06:30.130 --> 00:06:31.190
  • I'd give it to God, take it back.
  • 00:06:31.190 --> 00:06:33.040
  • Give it to God, take it back and all that kinda stuff.
  • 00:06:33.040 --> 00:06:34.050
  • I was like, I'm trying.
  • 00:06:34.050 --> 00:06:35.130
  • I was on fast after fast after fast.
  • 00:06:35.130 --> 00:06:37.140
  • And I just lived in the word all day and all night.
  • 00:06:37.140 --> 00:06:40.140
  • Because if God doesn't change your mind, that man won't.
  • 00:06:40.140 --> 00:06:43.070
  • Money won't, a trip won't, a purse won't.
  • 00:06:43.070 --> 00:06:46.110
  • Better sex won't, that won't
  • 00:06:46.110 --> 00:06:48.120
  • God has to change your mind and purify it.
  • 00:06:48.120 --> 00:06:50.180
  • And then everything in your life can be wonderful again.
  • 00:06:50.180 --> 00:06:53.200
  • Or at least you can, you know, you can work through it and
  • 00:06:53.200 --> 00:06:55.200
  • you can find joy and not just circumstantial happiness.
  • 00:06:55.200 --> 00:06:58.020
  • - You there's some intendeds in here.

  • - Where are you, where are you?

  • You know you wanna get married.
  • 00:07:06.230 --> 00:07:08.200
  • Yeah, there they are.
  • 00:07:08.200 --> 00:07:10.220
  • - Pastor husband, would you share.
  • 00:07:10.220 --> 00:07:12.070

  • Man, they got a crazy testimony, man.
  • 00:07:18.160 --> 00:07:21.150
  • About them being celibate.
  • 00:07:21.150 --> 00:07:23.190
  • Devon was celibate for 10 years.
  • 00:07:23.190 --> 00:07:26.010
  • Was it seven years?
  • 00:07:26.010 --> 00:07:26.280
  • - Seven years.
  • 00:07:26.280 --> 00:07:28.010
  • - You gotta get that.
  • 00:07:28.010 --> 00:07:30.130
  • - And Megan is fine.
  • 00:07:30.130 --> 00:07:31.270
  • - You gotta get that. - Megan was wanting to be
  • 00:07:31.270 --> 00:07:33.200
  • she was wanting to be celibate, so when she met him and
  • 00:07:33.200 --> 00:07:36.180
  • he was already celibate, she was like cool, let's go.
  • 00:07:36.180 --> 00:07:39.130
  • She was celibate for two years.
  • 00:07:39.130 --> 00:07:41.160
  • And man, they just got a really awesome marriage.

  • - [Teddy] Yeah, they know about that.
  • 00:08:05.110 --> 00:08:06.190
  • - [Erica] We wanna talk about these books today.
  • 00:08:06.190 --> 00:08:09.020
  • - And there's another one.
  • 00:08:09.020 --> 00:08:10.120
  • No Ring, No Ting. - All you people that
  • 00:08:10.120 --> 00:08:11.120
  • wanna do it.
  • 00:08:11.120 --> 00:08:12.190
  • - You gotta get my daughter's book.
  • 00:08:12.190 --> 00:08:15.080
  • Her thing went viral.
  • 00:08:15.080 --> 00:08:16.270
  • - Yes, yes.
  • 00:08:16.270 --> 00:08:17.250
  • - No Ring, No Ting.
  • 00:08:17.250 --> 00:08:19.130
  • - But that's, we're not just.
  • 00:08:19.130 --> 00:08:21.000
  • Come on, Pastor. - I know.
  • 00:08:21.000 --> 00:08:21.290
  • But I'm just.
  • 00:08:21.290 --> 00:08:23.120
  • I wanted to plug that simply because that sex thing
  • 00:08:23.120 --> 00:08:27.120
  • is a trap.
  • 00:08:27.120 --> 00:08:28.120
  • It messes you up long before.
  • 00:08:28.120 --> 00:08:31.180
  • It does.
  • 00:08:31.180 --> 00:08:32.130
  • - It skews your view.
  • 00:08:32.130 --> 00:08:33.210
  • - It throws your view off entirely.
  • 00:08:33.210 --> 00:08:36.180
  • Pastor, talk to us. - Get your identity
  • 00:08:36.180 --> 00:08:37.230
  • from it too.
  • 00:08:37.230 --> 00:08:38.290
  • - And then I want one of y'all to sing.
  • 00:08:38.290 --> 00:08:40.070
  • I want one of y'all to sing. - I say this
  • 00:08:40.070 --> 00:08:41.140
  • last piece.
  • 00:08:41.140 --> 00:08:42.290
  • This last piece.
  • 00:08:42.290 --> 00:08:44.140
  • My father, when I came to my dad and said, listen Dad,
  • 00:08:44.140 --> 00:08:45.220
  • I'm gonna ask Erica to marry me.
  • 00:08:45.220 --> 00:08:48.220
  • I remember we were in the garage workin' on a
  • 00:08:48.220 --> 00:08:50.260
  • car or somethin'.
  • 00:08:50.260 --> 00:08:51.230
  • You know how men do.
  • 00:08:51.230 --> 00:08:53.010
  • And so he look at me and said, "Son,
  • 00:08:53.010 --> 00:08:56.090
  • "you gotta know
  • 00:08:56.090 --> 00:08:57.170
  • "it's not gone be easy."
  • 00:08:58.210 --> 00:08:59.270
  • He says, "Now, when I met your mama
  • 00:08:59.270 --> 00:09:01.090
  • "I was a virgin."
  • 00:09:01.090 --> 00:09:02.190
  • He says, "And I've been watching you, son, you don't have
  • 00:09:03.290 --> 00:09:06.030
  • "that same testimony."
  • 00:09:06.030 --> 00:09:07.170
  • (audience laughs)
  • 00:09:07.170 --> 00:09:10.120
  • I said, no, no sir, I don't.
  • 00:09:12.160 --> 00:09:15.130
  • He said, "So I'mma tell you now there's not a gene that's
  • 00:09:15.130 --> 00:09:17.260
  • "gone jump out of me into you.
  • 00:09:17.260 --> 00:09:20.150
  • "And all of a sudden you gone be monogamous and you
  • 00:09:20.150 --> 00:09:22.170
  • "gone be faithful.
  • 00:09:22.170 --> 00:09:23.190
  • "It's going to be hard.
  • 00:09:23.190 --> 00:09:25.270
  • "And you gone have to work at it."
  • 00:09:25.270 --> 00:09:27.080
  • And so what I took from that is monogamy
  • 00:09:27.080 --> 00:09:30.020
  • is muscle.
  • 00:09:30.020 --> 00:09:30.260
  • And you gotta work.
  • 00:09:31.250 --> 00:09:33.190
  • It's hard work.
  • 00:09:33.190 --> 00:09:34.260
  • If you have not been doing that,
  • 00:09:34.260 --> 00:09:37.030
  • if you have been living your life you know, just you and the
  • 00:09:37.030 --> 00:09:40.130
  • Holy Ghost and you got a lot of friends that you been seeing
  • 00:09:40.130 --> 00:09:43.080
  • and then all of a sudden you think now it's just gone be
  • 00:09:43.080 --> 00:09:45.220
  • me and her.
  • 00:09:45.220 --> 00:09:46.170
  • It's difficult.
  • 00:09:46.170 --> 00:09:48.090
  • You got to practice it.
  • 00:09:48.090 --> 00:09:49.240
  • If you don't get down there and do them push ups one push
  • 00:09:49.240 --> 00:09:51.270
  • up is hard but guess what, two push ups is easy, then you
  • 00:09:51.270 --> 00:09:54.230
  • can do three, then you can do four.
  • 00:09:54.230 --> 00:09:56.090
  • It's the same thing.
  • 00:09:56.090 --> 00:09:57.050
  • It's a muscle.
  • 00:09:57.050 --> 00:09:58.140
  • It's a muscle.
  • 00:09:58.140 --> 00:09:59.090
  • You gotta work it.
  • 00:09:59.090 --> 00:10:00.100
  • You gotta try.
  • 00:10:00.100 --> 00:10:01.080
  • He says, "You gotta try."
  • 00:10:01.080 --> 00:10:03.190
  • My dad says, "You have to actively try to do this and it's
  • 00:10:03.190 --> 00:10:07.000
  • "gone be hard."
  • 00:10:07.000 --> 00:10:07.250
  • And it was, it was.
  • 00:10:07.250 --> 00:10:09.040
  • It took me a long time to figure it out.
  • 00:10:09.040 --> 00:10:11.120
  • - [Tina] While you were married.
  • 00:10:11.120 --> 00:10:12.200
  • - While I was married still figuring it out.
  • 00:10:12.200 --> 00:10:15.030
  • Just jackin' up.
  • 00:10:15.030 --> 00:10:16.050
  • Just gettin' it wrong.
  • 00:10:16.050 --> 00:10:17.120
  • And he said, "Son, just stick with it.
  • 00:10:17.120 --> 00:10:19.040
  • "Just keep trying, keep trying."
  • 00:10:19.040 --> 00:10:21.100
  • But I got the victory
  • 00:10:21.100 --> 00:10:22.240
  • - [Man] Come on.
  • 00:10:22.240 --> 00:10:23.190
  • (audience claps)
  • 00:10:23.190 --> 00:10:26.180
  • - Hey, Pastor?
  • 00:10:26.180 --> 00:10:27.180
  • Can I add to that?
  • 00:10:27.180 --> 00:10:28.210
  • 'Cause
  • 00:10:28.210 --> 00:10:29.160
  • I mean, this is,
  • 00:10:29.160 --> 00:10:31.020
  • and like Dr Freeman's saying man, this sex thing is real.
  • 00:10:31.020 --> 00:10:34.170
  • It's a real trap.
  • 00:10:34.170 --> 00:10:35.240
  • And unfortunately
  • 00:10:35.240 --> 00:10:37.260
  • it is.
  • 00:10:37.260 --> 00:10:38.210
  • The devil uses it to shape and form your identity.
  • 00:10:40.040 --> 00:10:44.220
  • And I need you to understand this because ultimately
  • 00:10:44.220 --> 00:10:47.260
  • you have to know who you are.
  • 00:10:47.260 --> 00:10:50.170
  • And if you don't, and it has nothing, again, if you're a
  • 00:10:50.170 --> 00:10:53.190
  • believer, it has nothing to do with you.
  • 00:10:53.190 --> 00:10:56.070
  • It has everything to do with Jesus.
  • 00:10:56.070 --> 00:10:58.020
  • You have to understand who you are and how Christ sees you
  • 00:10:58.020 --> 00:11:01.130
  • because if you go off of your own identity and what you've
  • 00:11:01.130 --> 00:11:04.170
  • done, oh I have good sex, (indistinct).
  • 00:11:04.170 --> 00:11:08.120
  • Oh, I'm sexy, oh I'm pretty, oh I'm fine.
  • 00:11:08.120 --> 00:11:10.130
  • I'mma awesome business man, I make a whole lot of money.
  • 00:11:10.130 --> 00:11:13.140
  • That's going to be your identity.
  • 00:11:13.140 --> 00:11:15.280
  • And as soon as that goes down in flames then you lookin' for
  • 00:11:15.280 --> 00:11:18.160
  • the next identity.
  • 00:11:18.160 --> 00:11:20.010
  • So you have to find a way to get into God's presence so he
  • 00:11:20.010 --> 00:11:23.150
  • can change you, so he can actually let you know who you are.
  • 00:11:23.150 --> 00:11:27.090
  • For me, because
  • 00:11:27.090 --> 00:11:28.170
  • I had so much practice of having sex,
  • 00:11:31.080 --> 00:11:34.100
  • I had to put myself,
  • 00:11:35.190 --> 00:11:37.090
  • this is what I had to do.
  • 00:11:38.190 --> 00:11:39.260
  • I had to put myself on a plan
  • 00:11:39.260 --> 00:11:42.250
  • to where I could change all of that, change and renew my
  • 00:11:42.250 --> 00:11:46.010
  • mind, get my appetite back to
  • 00:11:46.010 --> 00:11:48.100
  • where it's supposed to be. - Absolutely.
  • 00:11:48.100 --> 00:11:49.240
  • - And all of that kind of stuff.
  • 00:11:49.240 --> 00:11:51.070
  • So this is what I had to do.
  • 00:11:51.070 --> 00:11:52.280
  • I had to go on fasts.
  • 00:11:52.280 --> 00:11:55.100
  • I would fast, and not just fast like a diet,
  • 00:11:55.100 --> 00:11:57.210
  • but fast and pray.
  • 00:11:57.210 --> 00:11:59.110
  • Because
  • 00:11:59.110 --> 00:12:00.080
  • you can't kick a habit.
  • 00:12:01.180 --> 00:12:04.080
  • You gotta replace the habit.
  • 00:12:04.080 --> 00:12:06.030
  • - [Tina] That's good.
  • 00:12:06.030 --> 00:12:08.060
  • - You can't break a habit, don't let nobody tell you you
  • 00:12:08.060 --> 00:12:10.100
  • gotta break that habit.
  • 00:12:10.100 --> 00:12:11.110
  • No, you can't break it.
  • 00:12:11.110 --> 00:12:12.170
  • You gotta replace it.
  • 00:12:12.170 --> 00:12:13.260
  • Because you are used to doing certain things.
  • 00:12:13.260 --> 00:12:17.040
  • You wake up in the morning, like me, I wake up in the
  • 00:12:17.040 --> 00:12:18.230
  • morning I drink coffee every morning.
  • 00:12:18.230 --> 00:12:20.110
  • If somebody told me coffee was gone kill me I would have to
  • 00:12:20.110 --> 00:12:22.250
  • go do something else 'cause I wake up at eight o'clock in
  • 00:12:22.250 --> 00:12:25.190
  • the morning, my body say get up, get that coffee, that's
  • 00:12:25.190 --> 00:12:27.240
  • what you do first thing in the morning.
  • 00:12:27.240 --> 00:12:29.110
  • So ultimately I have to train my body to do something else.
  • 00:12:29.110 --> 00:12:32.050
  • So I was on fasts all the time.
  • 00:12:32.050 --> 00:12:33.270
  • Fasting and praying.
  • 00:12:33.270 --> 00:12:35.010
  • Getting my identity from God.
  • 00:12:35.010 --> 00:12:36.190
  • Who do you say I am?
  • 00:12:36.190 --> 00:12:37.290
  • I fell in love with Jesus,
  • 00:12:37.290 --> 00:12:39.280
  • period. - Jesus, Jesus.
  • 00:12:39.280 --> 00:12:41.060
  • - I fell in love with Jesus and he.
  • 00:12:41.060 --> 00:12:43.110
  • If you not a good,
  • 00:12:43.110 --> 00:12:45.060
  • this is a quote that I,
  • 00:12:45.060 --> 00:12:47.040
  • "If you're not a good
  • 00:12:47.040 --> 00:12:48.270
  • "wife to Jesus, husbands, you will never be a good husband
  • 00:12:50.110 --> 00:12:53.170
  • "to your wife."
  • 00:12:53.170 --> 00:12:54.240
  • And the reason why I said wife is because the bible talks
  • 00:12:56.070 --> 00:12:58.140
  • about us being his bride.
  • 00:12:58.140 --> 00:13:00.180
  • If your relationship with Jesus ain't fresh
  • 00:13:03.020 --> 00:13:07.020
  • - Right, right. - You can't love
  • 00:13:07.020 --> 00:13:08.180
  • your wife, you can't love your kids, you can't love.
  • 00:13:08.180 --> 00:13:10.140
  • They gone piss you off and you gone be trying to...
  • 00:13:10.140 --> 00:13:12.230
  • I'm telling you you have to
  • 00:13:12.230 --> 00:13:14.010
  • fall in love with Jesus. - Can you say
  • 00:13:14.010 --> 00:13:15.020
  • pissed off in church?
  • 00:13:15.020 --> 00:13:16.070
  • - You can't say pissed off in church.
  • 00:13:16.070 --> 00:13:17.150
  • - [Erica] You can say pissed off in church.
  • 00:13:17.150 --> 00:13:18.210
  • Sorry. - You can say it.
  • 00:13:18.210 --> 00:13:20.050
  • - I go to a multicultural church, my pastor say a lot of
  • 00:13:20.050 --> 00:13:23.040
  • stuff in the pulpit.
  • 00:13:23.040 --> 00:13:24.110
  • - We say pissed off.
  • 00:13:24.110 --> 00:13:26.050
  • - He don't cuss but
  • 00:13:26.050 --> 00:13:27.220
  • he, I don't know.
  • 00:13:28.250 --> 00:13:30.110
  • But anyway, I want y'all to understand because that sex
  • 00:13:30.110 --> 00:13:33.230
  • thing is an identity.
  • 00:13:33.230 --> 00:13:35.160
  • The devil will trick you and use that as your identity.
  • 00:13:36.290 --> 00:13:40.030
  • So you have to find your identity in Jesus Christ.
  • 00:13:40.030 --> 00:13:42.110
  • I fell in love with Jesus.
  • 00:13:42.110 --> 00:13:43.270
  • I fell so hard for Jesus that I didn't even want my wife.
  • 00:13:43.270 --> 00:13:47.050
  • If I'm being honest, I'mma tell you right now.
  • 00:13:47.050 --> 00:13:48.280
  • I had to come out of the spirit.
  • 00:13:48.280 --> 00:13:51.180
  • I was gone y'all.
  • 00:13:53.280 --> 00:13:54.270
  • - [Erica] Holy Ghost Teddy?
  • 00:13:54.270 --> 00:13:56.110
  • - I had to come out of the spirit so that I could minister
  • 00:13:56.110 --> 00:13:58.000
  • to my wife.
  • 00:13:58.000 --> 00:13:58.290
  • - This is really true.
  • 00:13:58.290 --> 00:14:00.210
  • I was like, now Jesus is the new girl?
  • 00:14:00.210 --> 00:14:02.220
  • What, why? (audience laughs)
  • 00:14:02.220 --> 00:14:06.090
  • But it was beautiful.
  • 00:14:06.090 --> 00:14:07.100
  • It was beautiful.
  • 00:14:07.100 --> 00:14:08.240
  • - The Holy Spirit will tell you, he's the comforter,
  • 00:14:08.240 --> 00:14:13.010
  • he is your wisdom, he's your knowledge,
  • 00:14:13.010 --> 00:14:15.070
  • he teaches you.
  • 00:14:15.070 --> 00:14:16.220
  • The Holy Spirit will tell you, "Okay, it's time for you to
  • 00:14:16.220 --> 00:14:18.200
  • "come out of the presence of me now and go and minister to
  • 00:14:18.200 --> 00:14:21.110
  • "your wife now, okay?
  • 00:14:21.110 --> 00:14:22.170
  • "Alright, don't give it all to me, you gotta
  • 00:14:22.170 --> 00:14:25.110
  • "minister to her.
  • 00:14:25.110 --> 00:14:26.060
  • "Wash her with the Word.
  • 00:14:26.060 --> 00:14:27.120
  • "Love her like I loved you, alright?
  • 00:14:27.120 --> 00:14:28.200
  • "That's your job."
  • 00:14:28.200 --> 00:14:30.030
  • But if you don't do that first, you won't be able to wash.
  • 00:14:30.030 --> 00:14:33.100
  • You won't be able to love your wife, husband, wives you
  • 00:14:33.100 --> 00:14:35.190
  • won't be able to love your husbands because your identity
  • 00:14:35.190 --> 00:14:37.250
  • is in something else.
  • 00:14:37.250 --> 00:14:39.110
  • It's in the marriage.
  • 00:14:39.110 --> 00:14:41.080
  • - [Dee Dee] Mmm.
  • 00:14:41.080 --> 00:14:42.180
  • - Your identity is in the marriage.
  • 00:14:42.180 --> 00:14:43.250
  • Well I'm supposed to have a good marriage.
  • 00:14:43.250 --> 00:14:45.080
  • My mother and father had a great marriage or my mother and
  • 00:14:45.080 --> 00:14:47.030
  • father didn't have a great marriage, so my marriage has
  • 00:14:47.030 --> 00:14:49.080
  • got to work.
  • 00:14:49.080 --> 00:14:50.240
  • I was wanting to be a good dad because I didn't have
  • 00:14:50.240 --> 00:14:52.180
  • a good dad.
  • 00:14:52.180 --> 00:14:53.180
  • It wasn't because God,
  • 00:14:54.140 --> 00:14:56.010
  • he wanted to show his love through me to my kids.
  • 00:14:56.010 --> 00:14:59.020
  • - Come on. - That's good.
  • 00:14:59.020 --> 00:15:00.150
  • That's good.
  • 00:15:00.150 --> 00:15:01.130
  • - Y'all feel me?
  • 00:15:01.130 --> 00:15:02.070
  • Make any sense?
  • 00:15:02.070 --> 00:15:03.050
  • - [Pastor Freeman] Absolutely.
  • 00:15:03.050 --> 00:15:05.020
  • - I think you gone sing first?
  • 00:15:05.020 --> 00:15:06.250
  • I know we gettin' late.
  • 00:15:06.250 --> 00:15:08.020
  • We gone let you sing first but then...
  • 00:15:08.020 --> 00:15:09.090
  • I know, - They still want us to sing?
  • 00:15:09.090 --> 00:15:12.060
  • - They do wanna talk.
  • 00:15:12.060 --> 00:15:13.160
  • It'll be fun, be fun.
  • 00:15:13.160 --> 00:15:15.010
  • But after that I would love for them to come back and talk
  • 00:15:15.010 --> 00:15:18.250
  • about, I mean for a few moments,
  • 00:15:18.250 --> 00:15:22.020
  • give us some points on how do you keep it fresh now.
  • 00:15:22.020 --> 00:15:26.090
  • You know, how do you keep it fresh?
  • 00:15:26.090 --> 00:15:28.010
  • What do you do, especially being so busy in all of your
  • 00:15:28.010 --> 00:15:31.060
  • careers and now you pastoring.
  • 00:15:31.060 --> 00:15:33.140
  • - Yeah, that's a big deal. - How do you come back and
  • 00:15:33.140 --> 00:15:35.060
  • just keep it fresh?
  • 00:15:35.060 --> 00:15:37.010
  • - Are y'all having a good time?
  • 00:15:37.010 --> 00:15:38.200
  • - Y'all having a good time?
  • 00:15:38.200 --> 00:15:39.160
  • Ready to go?
  • 00:15:39.160 --> 00:15:40.270
  • Alright, good.
  • 00:15:40.270 --> 00:15:41.270
  • - [Tina] This is so awesome, man.
  • 00:15:41.270 --> 00:15:43.050
  • - [Dee Dee] That's good, that's good.
  • 00:15:43.050 --> 00:15:44.020
  • - All y'all married?
  • 00:15:44.020 --> 00:15:45.160
  • This is all just a gang of married couples, I have never
  • 00:15:45.160 --> 00:15:47.010
  • been in the presence of this many married couples just
  • 00:15:47.010 --> 00:15:49.200
  • comin' to get good godly knowledge in the church in my life.
  • 00:15:49.200 --> 00:15:53.140
  • I'm 42, I was born and raised in church.
  • 00:15:53.140 --> 00:15:55.160
  • Church is the first place I came, probably not even
  • 00:15:55.160 --> 00:15:57.050
  • the doctor's office.
  • 00:15:57.050 --> 00:15:58.020
  • So,
  • 00:15:58.020 --> 00:15:59.170
  • I have never seen this many couples just hungry for
  • 00:15:59.170 --> 00:16:02.280
  • good godly wisdom. - Yeah, man.
  • 00:16:02.280 --> 00:16:04.200
  • - This is awesome. - Give yourselves a hand!
  • 00:16:04.200 --> 00:16:06.270
  • - Give them a hand!
  • 00:16:06.270 --> 00:16:08.230
  • This is so awesome.
  • 00:16:08.230 --> 00:16:10.030
  • - [Pastor Freeman] God bless you.
  • 00:16:10.030 --> 00:16:11.140
  • - Yeah we love doing this. - So how we gone
  • 00:16:11.140 --> 00:16:12.200
  • do this, sweetie?
  • 00:16:12.200 --> 00:16:13.170
  • - So, you wanna sing?
  • 00:16:13.170 --> 00:16:15.030
  • Y'all wanna hear her sing?
  • 00:16:15.030 --> 00:16:16.100
  • - [Audience] Yeah!
  • 00:16:16.100 --> 00:16:17.250
  • - And I wanna pose this for you.
  • 00:16:18.240 --> 00:16:20.280
  • People ask me
  • 00:16:20.280 --> 00:16:22.130
  • why did I forgive my husband, I was like, well after I was
  • 00:16:22.130 --> 00:16:25.100
  • stuck on crazy and did it the devil's way and I realized
  • 00:16:25.100 --> 00:16:27.230
  • that didn't work and it left me more tormented, I figured
  • 00:16:27.230 --> 00:16:30.040
  • God's way had to be better 'cause the devil's way was
  • 00:16:30.040 --> 00:16:32.010
  • the ultimate worst.
  • 00:16:32.010 --> 00:16:33.200
  • But then I realized that
  • 00:16:33.200 --> 00:16:36.150
  • it was too hard not to forgive.
  • 00:16:36.150 --> 00:16:38.250
  • - Wow. - So I'm gonna
  • 00:16:38.250 --> 00:16:39.230
  • sing a little part of this song.
  • 00:16:39.230 --> 00:16:41.090
  • This song has never been recorded or anything but I think it
  • 00:16:41.090 --> 00:16:43.210
  • might minister to someone.
  • 00:16:43.210 --> 00:16:44.280
  • It goes.
  • 00:16:44.280 --> 00:16:45.230
  • It's too hard to hold on
  • 00:16:47.080 --> 00:16:49.280
  • To all of the pain
  • 00:16:49.280 --> 00:16:53.160
  • And it's too hard to relive it
  • 00:16:53.160 --> 00:16:56.170
  • Over and over again
  • 00:16:56.170 --> 00:17:00.060
  • It's too hard when the memories have
  • 00:17:00.060 --> 00:17:03.020
  • Control over you
  • 00:17:03.020 --> 00:17:06.170
  • Some say it's too hard to forgive
  • 00:17:06.170 --> 00:17:10.210
  • But I say it's too hard not to
  • 00:17:10.210 --> 00:17:13.280
  • - [Pastor Freeman] Come on.
  • 00:17:13.280 --> 00:17:15.060
  • It's too hard not to
  • 00:17:15.060 --> 00:17:18.170
  • It's too hard not to
  • 00:17:18.170 --> 00:17:22.170
  • - Consider that.
  • 00:17:22.170 --> 00:17:23.250
  • It's too hard to live the rest of your life
  • 00:17:23.250 --> 00:17:27.030
  • tormented,
  • 00:17:27.030 --> 00:17:28.100
  • insecure,
  • 00:17:28.100 --> 00:17:29.240
  • afraid,
  • 00:17:29.240 --> 00:17:31.050
  • shamed,
  • 00:17:31.050 --> 00:17:32.080
  • and embarrassed.
  • 00:17:32.080 --> 00:17:33.220
  • Let go and give it to God and let him rebuild your life.
  • 00:17:33.220 --> 00:17:37.050
  • This song
  • 00:17:37.050 --> 00:17:38.000
  • me and Erica, y'all know us as Mary Mary but we separated
  • 00:17:39.130 --> 00:17:42.000
  • for a little while to do some solo stuff.
  • 00:17:42.000 --> 00:17:44.160
  • And in the process of healing I did not intend to go solo.
  • 00:17:44.160 --> 00:17:47.150
  • I was like, that's what Erica's gonna do, I'mma be back when
  • 00:17:47.150 --> 00:17:49.070
  • she come back to Mary Mary, I'll be there and that's
  • 00:17:49.070 --> 00:17:50.150
  • when I'mma sing.
  • 00:17:50.150 --> 00:17:51.200
  • But God gave me music to help heal me.
  • 00:17:51.200 --> 00:17:54.140
  • And once I ended up with multiple songs I realized he
  • 00:17:54.140 --> 00:17:56.290
  • wanted me to give that to the world 'cause how I'm sittin'
  • 00:17:56.290 --> 00:17:59.010
  • up with nine full encouraging songs that's ministering.
  • 00:17:59.010 --> 00:18:01.110
  • I think he wants me to be a artist so that's kinda why I
  • 00:18:01.110 --> 00:18:03.200
  • ended up solo.
  • 00:18:03.200 --> 00:18:04.250
  • But this song is a song that God gave to me to prophesy
  • 00:18:06.080 --> 00:18:08.230
  • over my own life.
  • 00:18:08.230 --> 00:18:10.060
  • To talk myself through this journey that he was taking me
  • 00:18:11.230 --> 00:18:14.050
  • on and to let myself know that he's taking me somewhere.
  • 00:18:14.050 --> 00:18:17.180
  • Even though I might've made one step and I wanna make 3.000
  • 00:18:17.180 --> 00:18:20.030
  • at a time, I'm still moving forward and I'm still
  • 00:18:20.030 --> 00:18:22.150
  • progressing because with God you always move forward.
  • 00:18:22.150 --> 00:18:25.170
  • You always go up.
  • 00:18:25.170 --> 00:18:26.250
  • You always get better, you know what I mean?
  • 00:18:26.250 --> 00:18:29.070
  • And so I'm going to sing this.
  • 00:18:29.070 --> 00:18:31.040
  • It's called Destiny.
  • 00:18:31.040 --> 00:18:32.120
  • Y'all ready back there?
  • 00:18:32.120 --> 00:18:34.010
  • Alright, bless God.
  • 00:18:34.010 --> 00:18:35.190
  • Yeah, yeah, yeah
  • 00:18:37.270 --> 00:18:40.250
  • I've got a destination
  • 00:18:46.130 --> 00:18:49.260
  • In my view
  • 00:18:51.150 --> 00:18:53.280
  • The road may be bumpy getting there
  • 00:18:56.070 --> 00:19:00.270
  • But I'm pressing through
  • 00:19:00.270 --> 00:19:04.290
  • And I will enjoy this journey
  • 00:19:04.290 --> 00:19:08.290
  • No matter come what may
  • 00:19:10.000 --> 00:19:14.050
  • I'll become better
  • 00:19:14.050 --> 00:19:16.210
  • And stronger
  • 00:19:16.210 --> 00:19:19.120
  • And wiser
  • 00:19:19.120 --> 00:19:22.060
  • Everyday
  • 00:19:22.060 --> 00:19:23.260
  • I've got a vision and a purpose
  • 00:19:23.260 --> 00:19:28.010
  • A divine destiny
  • 00:19:28.270 --> 00:19:31.240
  • It may not look like it right now
  • 00:19:33.250 --> 00:19:38.000
  • But faith ain't what I see
  • 00:19:39.010 --> 00:19:43.140
  • It is the things I hope for
