Angus Buchan’s Ordinary People is a goosebumps maker of a film in a positive way. In the past couple of months, I’ve noticed a drop in my traffic on here.
I’ve been trying to figure out what my blogging purpose is.
I went back through my history some, and found that my loyal readers were here because of me sharing my personal self and thoughts. I have steered away from that a lot lately. For that I’m sorry! I’m not going to say that I won’t still do some of the stuff I’ve been doing lately, but I will bring back more of ME into MY blog.
God has been harping on me to create a particular post in the past couple of days, and when I have the chance to formulate my words in a manner I feel is right then I will post it. This movie shook me up because it kicked me in the behind to LISTEN to God’s voice in my heart regarding that post and this blog journey I’m on.
“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7.
See, I’ve been falling under the timidity act for a very long time now. I pulled back and went into my shell just as God was using his spirit of power through me on this blog! I’ve been guilty of that in many areas of my life. I could relate to how these men felt in this movie. I’ve been down on my last leg and never believed in the power of God using an ordinary women like me to make an impact.
“Life is but a vapor.” Angus Buchan
(Not sure if he’s the original person to say this quote, but I heard it from his mouth on this movie so he’s getting the credit until I find out who the original person is.) I of all people should know the reality of this due to my car accident in February 2006 that changed my life dramatically. There is no guarantee that I’ll live to see tomorrow to be able to fully tell you my experiences.
The real kicker is my experiences truly can make a difference in others’ lives. Many people can relate to my experiences, and together we can help each other. That’s the reason why this blog was originally created back in 2011. I honestly aimed to do just that but you know what? I got scared of the judgement from others. I got scared of coming out behind my shell. I let fear and worry stand in the way of God working his magic through me. For that I failed him, you, and even myself.
Yes, this movie made that much of an impact on me!!
Can I still say I’m prepared to take this huge leap of faith? Not 100%, but I can say that regardless of my own humanly concerns… I will do this because I have FAITH! I will do this because I BELIEVE! I will do this because I do KNOW that it will make a difference. It may not make a difference in thousands of people’s lives. It may only make the difference in ONE person’s life.
Yet, I KNOW God is in control.
Whether or not your a believer, this movie will move you. I highly recommend it.
How has God changed your life?
