T.D. Jakes’ newest best seller is called Crushing: God Turns Pressure into Power. It tackles the hard questions about a loving God allowing sorrow and suffering. It’s about transforming what was meant for evil into good.
In this special “It Crushed Me” interview, Bishop Jakes sits down with Pastor Keion Henderson to discuss his childhood, his relationship with his biological father, his struggles with anger, and how he finally overcame what could have crushed him.
Keion Henderson’s present success as a pastor, humanitarian, speaker, and business leader is a far cry from the circumstances of his childhood. He grew up with his single mother and siblings, surviving for many years on minimum wage and government assistance.
Unknown to him for the first 12 years of his life, Keion’s biological father pastored a large church down the street and lived comfortably with his wife and their children. This just happened to be the church his family attended and Keion served at.
He was 12 when he found out the man he served as an adjutant and admired and secretly wished was his real father – actually was! Next came all the questions – most left unanswered -- the new feelings of rejection, the crushed hopes, and the anger as his father refused to acknowledge Keion as his son.
This emotional trauma, however, gave Keion a drive to succeed – perhaps to prove himself worthy to be his son. He struggled with feeling as if everything was his fault and wondering “am I good enough” – one of those unanswered questions.
Along the way, Pastor Henderson met Bishop T.D. Jakes and a God-ordained relationship and mentorship was born that continues to this day.
Watch this amazing “It Crushed Me” interview with Pastor Keion Henderson and Bishop Jakes, and see how God can restore, renew, and reconcile. And, don’t miss out on T.D. Jakes’ new book Crushing: God Turns Pressure Into Power. http://bit.ly/2Ue5FaD
