00:01 The following program discusses sensitive issues
00:03 related to addictive behavior.
00:05 Parents are cautioned that some material
00:06 may be too candid for younger children.
00:13 Welcome back.
00:14 You know, I wanted to say thank you
00:15 for being on the program
00:17 and thank you for that journey
00:18 that you guys really went on
00:20 and going all the way to a place
00:22 where you're using
00:23 what you know in your own healing
00:25 to reach out to someone else.
00:27 And, Janelle, you've told me a story
00:28 that I'd like you to say quickly.
00:30 Okay.
00:31 Yes, when we started the program
00:33 in the community or maybe it was at the point
00:35 where we were advertising it but,
00:37 I believe that the Lord made us more sensitive
00:39 to see people struggling,
00:42 and we were at the gas station
00:43 and I saw a girl next to us that just didn't look right,
00:46 she was in the driver seat
00:47 and she's a rocking in her seat.
00:49 She's looking down and she's looking around
00:51 and she's just rocking
00:52 and so I went to their window and tapped on the window
00:55 I said, "Are you okay?"
00:57 And she started crying and she said,
00:59 "I can't believe you actually...
01:00 a stranger came and actually came to see if I was okay."
01:04 And so we talked to her
01:06 and everything and got her number
01:08 and you know and kept in touch with her
01:10 and stuff but...
01:11 She was saying, "I'm not okay."
01:13 Right.
01:14 I need someone to see me and I'm afraid.
01:16 Right.
01:17 And she said, she said,
01:18 "You probably thought I was on drugs
01:20 when you saw me didn't you?"
01:21 I said, "Honestly, yeah."
01:23 and she said, "I used to do drugs
01:24 but now I'm trying to get sober."
01:25 And she was having some issues but she's...
01:28 That's incredible.
01:29 I just want to say, you know what,
01:31 thank you so much for sharing.
01:32 And, you know, for anybody
01:33 looking is even the demoniac in the Bible,
01:36 there was a crazy guy filled with demons
01:38 and God said go tell someone
01:40 what I've done in your life
01:41 so that you can help someone else.
01:43 That's our gag, that's our healing.
01:44 That's how we're gonna really find
01:46 who we are and be in our own skin.
01:49 You know until next time,
01:50 always remember that God is crazy about you, me too.
01:53 God bless.
