Faith Like Potatoes

We've watched the movie Faith Like Potatoes twice now as a family. Once just Jon and I. And once with the whole family. The movie is so faith stirring in so many ways.

For one I am reminded when I became a Christian and I didn't know any better but to go and tell my friends all about Jesus (as well as pressure them to pray with me, if I could). I so want to be liked in life. So, I am afraid that I don't want to tell a stranger or a new friend about Jesus. I hardly have any friends as it is, what if I said it wrong and they thought I was weird, or what if I offended them.

But, also, what happened to that boldness and optimism when I said, "thank you Jesus" for every little thing that God did for me. Am I so ashamed of being labeled a religious fanatic, that I can't even thank him normally?

More to come on this...I must be in prayer more for God to take away my desire for others to regard me well and for God to grant me boldness in prayer and in speech.

God Bless.
