Wow… The battle was worth it!

You never think about how the outcome will be when you follow Gods call in obedience. Like when the Hamilton’s knew God wanted them to share their story with the world.
With obedience sometimes comes trials. Meaning that when God wants to do something good and powerful, the enemy looks to steal, kill and destroy. I think of that song: Whom shall I Fear…thus we know the Lord is our strength and our salvation. So we remember that we need to persevere through difficult times.
With the movie came a lot of warfare and we all had to pray for each other and remind each other why the battle was worth it.
Today, I read a friends personal journey through the movie and it reminded me that God had a bigger purpose and plan for the movie: thus the trials we entailed through this journey really helps to solidify why it was so important to walk in obedience. I am so thankful we have Christ and take a deep breath knowing He will get us turlough all things;) please take a moment to read this blog:

About Sarah Rachel Hill

After graduating high school, a tragic surfing accident changed Sarah Hill's life. Suffering a broken neck and back, Sarah clung to Christ and through this painful journey, God's plan and purpose for her life started to become clear. After recovering from her accident, Sarah completed her Associate's Degree in theology from Calvary Chapel Bible College (CCBC). Trusting God, Sarah returned to surfing and became a missionary to the island of Kauai in June 2001. There, Sarah founded Kauai Child, a ministry geared toward the island's kids. Soon after arriving in Kauai, she began spending more of her time in ministry to junior and senior high students. Sarah has helped create youth groups on the North Shore of Kauai and ministers to more than 150 kids a week. Because of her fun and loving approach to youth, she has one of the largest youth groups on Kauai. Sarah takes the time to truly listen and understand the full scope of each student's needs. Her ministry also includes helping establish Christian clubs in public schools, discipling kids, counseling students and their families, and of course, her ministry to kids on the water while surfing! Grounded in her devotion and love for Christ for more than 17 years and in ministry for 12 years, Sarah's training allows her to recognize those in need and gives her the ability to reach out to them. After growing up in a tough and abusive home, through God's grace, she continues impacting lives for God's kingdom on Kauai ... and beyond. In SOUL SURFER, Sarah is portrayed by Carrie Underwood.

    I love your blog! It is definitely hard to see the things that the Lord asks us to do to completion. Thanks for this reminder (I’ve been working on something for a while & continue to drag my feet.) Looking forward to seeing the movie this weekend!
