Kyle, a Beloved Son
With Martha Kilpatrick and hosted by John Enslow
Kyle says, “I don’t look the Christ-like part but I’m glad that He’s got me to a point where you guys can see me because He sees me!”
Okay, now I will introduce our guest. We had to get through the battle. It’s a wonder y’all didn’t get up and leave; just because you didn’t have anywhere to go in the mountains.
John, would you like to introduce our guest?
This is Kyle. I am so sorry that I didn’t introduce y’all officially this morning, while hell was descending upon us…
We sort of got hit with a hurricane, didn’t we?
I’ve been walking with Kyle for a while and this is Linda Massengale’s (Y’all know her) this is her son, her oldest son. He’s been called up here and he’s looking to move up here and we’re looking for the logistics of that and the will of that and how that will play out. There is a possibility he will come up here and never leave. I don’t know what that’s going to be, I have no idea. I don’t know His purpose; I don’t nothing about anything. We just need to be as a body, we need to be praying about it. And just kind of getting around it and listening….hearing.
He’s a man with a lot of insight and love for the Lord and he’s chosen to love the Lord above all things. He’s been a great joy to John and a partner. We love him and we receive him as a gift from God. And will be anxious to hear from him. I meant for you to make a long speech when the war broke. He is a former Marine. Not a former Marine; it’s Marine forever, isn’t it. He served our country.
I’m sure you guys will hear more when I come back. Like he said, God asked me something of Himself to be His. I gave myself to Him totally. It’s all about hearing. I’ve fought my entire life; I’ve fought to survive; I’ve fought to live; I’ve fought to get through the next day; I’ve fought to die. But He’s done a lot of things in my life that I’m sure we will get to whenever I do come back or visit again or however, He has it. I told them yesterday that I’ve lived like three lifetimes worth of things and I’m only turning thirty three this year. I love Him for it. Everything that He’s done in my life has brought me to this place to be able to be humble enough to recognize who He is, what He is. I’m just asking for Him to show me my purpose that He has.
I know who I am and I know what life I have in Virginia. I’ve built it myself. I’m ready to leave that and come here and find who I am in Him and who He is in me.
So, I’m excited. I just want to say I appreciate you guys. You have welcomed me with open arms. It’s definitely Christ-life because you look past what people look like, you look past what people’s past looks like and you just love them because you see Christ loves them. I’ve been judged my whole life. Obviously, I don’t look the very Christ-like part but I’m glad that He’s got me to a point where you guys can see me. It’s very nice to be seen. John was the first one to see me. It was an amazing experience. It still is an amazing experience and I look forward to our journey. That’s it in a nutshell.
That’s quite a nutshell.
It’s enormously exciting to have the possibility of a man like you. It’s enormously exciting.
It’s very scary. I’ve never thought in a million years, I told them yesterday I never though in a million years that I would be here before my mom. My mom talks about the love that she has for everyone especially Martha. It’s amazing. And my mom means everything to me because I grew up without a father and she did everything for me. I look at her as my best friend. It wasn’t always like that but the last three years of my life has been completely different. I know that if she loves you guys and she’s filled with love for you guys and she talks about you guys all the time then that’s something that I want to be a part of.
We are very military…
I’ve heard bits and pieces, stories here and there. So, I’m excited.
It’s supposed to be.
Remember when we were at Carole’s we signed the document?
Don had it and he envisioned it.
And it was Martha’s army. I’m not a soldier?!
But you watch the Seal things all the time.
I love it.
His dad was in the military
I loved every minute of it. When 911 happened, my whole purpose was that I wanted to do and give back. I definitely miss all my brothers that I’ve lost. I know He has a great purpose but I wish I was in a different place then because then there’s a lot who could have been saved as well. However, just because you are bold and you do something courageous for your country and you die doesn’t mean that it grants you.
I’m excited. I know that He will use me in a very strategic and special way. We were talking about it yesterday. I’m very well known. I don’t like that I am because that’s not who I am anymore but I know thousands and thousands of people. Thousands! It’s kind of funny because my mom we will go to dinner and she’s like, “Who are we going to see today?” Because literally we can’t go to dinner anywhere either the waitress, I know them or the bartender, I know them or the wait staff, I know the whole staff or I know everybody in the building.
So, walking away from that life and coming into this one allows Him to build me into something; I can affect a lot of lives. So, I’m excited. I’m giving myself to see and wait and hear. This weekend happened on (snap) like that. He gave me a choice and I made the choice in my heart. Martha called me and I was at work. Martha had to talk to me. She was like, “No, I need to talk to him now!” I’m part owner in a nutrition club. That’s what I do. I’ve been in the fitness industry for like ten years now. She said, “and I just walked out.” “I’m going to leave tomorrow morning.” And she said, “I feel like you need to come up and visit.” I’m off on Friday’s and Saturday’s anyway so I told her I would come this weekend so I’m excited to come here not knowing anything, not expecting anything; I have no idea. But it was a great reward because…should I talk about it?
Whatever you want to say…..
Like I was saying, I’ve never had a father and my father was an evil person. My mom didn’t want him. They were never married but he wanted to be in my life and she said, “No.” She said, “You will not be anything like him.” My whole life, like I said I fought and fought and fought; I fought to live, I fought to survive; I fought to carry on to the next day; I fought to try to end my life. But nothing it was just fighting… I would do things in my life and I don’t even know why I would do them. There would be no explanation, there would be no…I couldn’t even come to comprehend why I even did what I did. But just in the forty-eight hours I’ve been here Martha saw the generational curse that was on me because of my father. My father hated the Lord. He was just a hateful person. And this entire life that I have been living, I’ve been living under that curse and finally we prayed and she broke that curse; the Lord broke that curse. And now I get to live the life that I don’t know. Just because I’ve lived thirty-three years of warfare. In just a small amount of time being here it’s life changing. And that’s me in a nutshell.
I could stay here and tell story after story after story.
Yeah, you could.
