I was watching Soul Surfer last night and didn’t expect to be so moved by this kind of movie. At the beginning of the movie, a youth pastor tells the girl whose arm was bitten off by the shark this quote from the Bible:
“I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11)”
I’m not one to quote the Bible. But that one hit me hard. I’ve been feeling very…I don’t even know what the word is…lost, I guess. I needed that verse. Especially today. I’m going to keep reading it over and over until it sinks in. And maybe I’ll even start believing it.
