I can't believe we have two more movies to go through before the Twilight saga is blessedly over. I wouldn't mind quite so much if it was just another vampire movie. But it's just the cultural phenomenon that it's inspiring. All that goth makeup, and clothes, the fangirl squeals over you-know-those two -guys, people running around pretending to be vampires with special powers....??????
I think the root of this is the same root of whatever drives little kids to want to be princesses. Or superheroes. Or (sobs) Jedi. Deep down inside, we all want to stand out, be different, live a life that's different from everyone else. We want to escape the ordinary and live a life that has adventure and excitement(which a Jedi does NOT crave, by the way.) We want to make a difference and outlive our lives.
Too bad that only happens in the movies. sigh.
No, it doesn't.
God doesn't call us to a life of boring ordinaryness. You want to live a meaningful life? Good, that's what you're made for.
Pray and live, and you'll see that you're made for way more purpose and adventure then you have. If you've been reading my past posts, you'll see that some amazing things have happened to me!
No matter how old or how young you are, God calls, and has called you to action every single day, sometimes in seemingly little ways. Are you listening? God has an amazing destiny planned out for each and every one of us. But maps can't force you to follow them.
Destiny calls. Will you follow it?
*Like this post. I just randomly got the idea to create this post, and I wasn't doing anything at the time, so we'll see where it goes.
