The Surprises in My Reluctance
It happened once again several weeks ago. I was presented an opportunity to see a movie with some friends. I didn't want to go. And throughout my life, I have discovered that when I start lining up a litany of lame excuses to not do something, I know that I need to just go ahead and do it.
All my excuses crumbled, nothing to cling onto. And so I reluctantly agreed to go.
My sister-in-law and her three sisters were attending the movie War Room which was released at the end of August. I admit an inherent prejudice against cheesy Christian movies. But I went. We sat down in the theater. And God brought me to shame.
I will not say anything more, but the powerful message in this movie just might change your thinking on a lot of different levels, a message that very well may change the course of your life...and everyone around you.
