{my Soul Surfer day!}

I don’t know why bad things happen to us sometimes but I have to believe something GOOD is going to come out of this. – Sarah Hill in Soul Surfer in response to Bethany Hamilton’s question on why terrible things happen to us in life. šŸ™‚

{A teenage surfer girl summons the courage to go back into the ocean after losing an arm in a shark attack.}

The line above got me.Ā  Most of the times we subscribe to the adage (consciously or unconsciously) that says” Once bitten, twice shy” and we sometimes let the pain, failures and mistakes in the past define our present and future.Ā  But I dare say that in Christ, all things are made new!

Last weekend, I was a stay-at-home gal as I was down with the flu and a bad case of colds and I decided to watch Soul Surfer.Ā  Good thing I did.Ā  God spoke to me about faith, love and fighting for your destiny.Ā  Walking with God does not assure us a cushioned life but He has promised that He will make ALL things work together for our good. šŸ™‚

So, I’ll go back to the “water” and “surf again”.Ā  šŸ™‚ Right, God?! šŸ™‚

But for me, knowing that God loves me and that He has a plan for my life, that no shark can take away and no contest result can shake, is like having solid rock underneath me. Bad things are bound to happen to everyone. That’s life. Here’s my advice: don’t put all your hope and faith into something that could suddenly and easily disappear. And honestly, that’s almost anything. The only thing that will never go away, that will never fail you, is God and your faith in him. – Bethany Hamilton in here

What a loving promise!

    • Thanks for your lovely comment, Susan! I still have the colds but I’ve to be in school for the kids.:) Yup, it truly is worth watching. I checked out her website and it’s amazing how many lives she’s touched by her testimony and her volunteer work! God truly makes all things work together for our good! Have a blessed week ahead!:)
