Day 29. This is it.
I’ve been struggling to keep the fire of my faith illuminated, but tonight the fire is burning bright once again. I saw God’s Not Dead with a few girls from my Bible study, and it was exactly what I needed to finish this challenge strong. And I would definitely recommend that you see it too. It really puts into perspective how we as Christians should be living in this broken world.
Jesus said this in Matthew 10:32-33, “Whoever acknowledges me before others, I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven.”
The movie focused on that verse, and like the main character Josh (played by Shane Harper, whom I’ve always loved but I love even more now that I know he’s a Christian) was a light to his campus, I want to be a light wherever life takes me.
I want to be strong in acknowledging Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior to those my life touches. That’s what this challenge has taught me, and this challenge only became an option for me because I was broken.
The old woman with dementia in God’s Not Dead said this, “Sometimes the devil allows people to live a life free of trouble so they won’t turn to God.”
One of my favorite blessings from college so far is the encouragement from my fellow Christian friends who have been a steady, even though distant at times, part of my life. Know that you guys hold such a special place in my heart, and when life brings us together, as it always does, my heart overflows with joy.
My posts have been getting shorter and my challenge is coming to an end, but this isn’t the last you’ll hear from me. I recently developed an idea for what will hopefully be a novel or at least a short story in the future, and I also plan on posting occasionally about the lessons I’m learning as well as what I love about life.
This is Lessons Learned and Life Loved, after all.
