I’m not someone who dwells on movies. In fact, I often forget movies that I’ve seen. This is actually a good thing, because I can watch the same movie over and over again, wondering how good is going to win over evil. But there’s one movie that I remember better than some others: Groundhog Day. I’m sure that it must be because of the repetition of the movie over and over and over and over again (although honestly, I do forget how it ends. 🙂
But the movie Groundhog Day and its plot make me think about our lives in Christ. You see, every day I believe Christ is looking down upon us, watching our every move, and He knows exactly what is going to happen, day after day. Unfortunately for many of us, including myself, we’re going to sin. God knows it. And it’s not that He’s waiting for it to happen. Instead, I believe He is waiting for us to ask forgiveness for it. You see, He’s so forgiving, that although He knows how the story will unfold (that we may sin again tomorrow), He loves us so much that it doesn’t matter today.
He is a loving God, a forgiving God, and a merciFULL God. His grace is unending.
We may wake up every day to the same routine, attempting to do right. But I know that in my life, my intentions are many times only that: intentions. I still fail, but because God loves me and forgives me, He picks me up, brushes off the bad, and helps mold me into the person He wants me to be.
Thank you God for playing such a big part of my life, even though many times I put you behind the scenes in the movie called “my life.” I pray that you will help me help others see You through me.
