I want to be the kind of person that when my feet hit the ground in the morning, the devil says,
“Oh darn, she’s up”! Want to join me?
In the classic Christmas movie, It’s a Wonderful Life, George Bailey becomes despaired with his life and as he stands on a snow covered bridge, prepared to jump into the icy river below, he is visited by an angel ~ Clarence. Clarence showed him all the lives he had touched and how different his little neck-of-the-woods would be had he never lived. Through the story, George learns not to define his life by his failures, but to focus on his accomplishments.
This is what we do at Next Step, we walk out onto the bridge and meet the pregnant woman, who is feeling like a failure because she got pregnant, and we show her how valuable she and her baby are. And all of you are the angels ~ for without your prayers and support, the bridge would collapse into an icy river of pain, devastation, and death.
Thank you for being that kind of person that makes the devil unhappy!
Is that a bell I hear?
