So last night I was browsing through movies and came across I am not ashamed. I love watching movies while I doze off, but this movie caught my attention I found myself sitting up and wanting a snack because it was that good. I laughed and cried but most of all it made me think.
This movie is based on a true story; about a girl named Rachael Joy she went Columbine High School. I related so much to her maybe that’s why it touched me so much. She always knew she loved God, but had trouble expressing it fully and accepting Him with all her heart. As young women, we just want to fit in but something inside us is just different, we try doing what our friends do but inside our, hearts we feel convicted and feel we don’t belong.
In all reality we just want people to see us for who we are and accept us, we don’t want to lose relationships just because we love God. We want to build relationships because we love God. Racheal Joy began to realize how much she needed God and she wanted Him to do great things in her life, most importantly she wanted to be a light for Him. If you feel this way..God wants you too.
She dealt with non-believers, betrayal and more that we all go through as a young teen but she didn’t let it stop her from showing love to people. She kept smiling and helping other teens realize their potential in Christ. Some were upset because she loved God, and that’s normal but will you still stand up for him if they ask?
This movie was so powerful it is a must watch movie especially for teens. We all have a calling on our lives we just have to accept it and let God take over.It won’t be easy, but it’s worth it.
