Do you ever have those moments where you are completely touched by something and it is like God is so clearly telling you something? I have had a few of those moments in my life. Some were big things God told/asked me to do and others were small and simple things.
One of these moments that sticks out is after I watched The Constant Gardener. I remember how horrified I was that I had been so ignorant to the happenings in Africa. I swore that I would do something. Have I done something? A pathetic, “no” will answer that question. I remember telling someone, “How can I not do something now that I know?” Slowly the shock of what I had seen in this movie had worn away. I guess I let it. My selfishness took over. I think I got pregnant closely after and I probably blamed it on that.
Justin just posted a video on his blog that you should all seriously watch. It made me have one of those moments. The video is of a song by Linkin Park. It has some amazing images in it. Images that will really make you think. I couldn’t help but be touched by some of these powerful shots.
Too many times I have been convicted and yet done nothing about it. Yuck! I hate that about myself! So I want to challenge you and me to really think through that video and what it is saying to you. Maybe even act on it. Listen to the video, listen to God, and act on it.
Sorry if I built it up too much and then you watch it and think it sucks. I hate when people do that to movies. Go watch it. The end.
