Our efforts in the 40 Days for Love video contest did NOT pay off this time around, though I suspect because of our developments throughout the Lenten season, the information provided is somewhat different from today. God is definitely at work throughout this process, and I’m praying for good fortune in the coming weeks and months.
It is a humbling process, but we need all the help we can get to win the People’s Choice Award for the Goodness Reigns Contest! So please follow this link and VOTE for “The Best!”
This film was created in response to my impending trip to World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro as well as a desire to see this movement spread with the $1000 prize money to go toward the mission work. However, I believe that is because we are not ready for this movement to fully expand, or maybe…God isn’t ready for it. I honestly don’t know at this point, and I have to fully trust in Him to see us through this long and uncertain time. Regardless though, we are hoping to see a growth in our following so that as we pray these devotionals each year, we will see 40 Days for Love get as strong as our pro-LIFE partners! But we can only hope.
I also want to take this time to let you all know where I personally stand in all of this. As I near my college graduation from WKU, I have decided firmly to apply for the seminary, and if God wills it, I will be attending St. Meinrad Seminary for the Diocese of Owensboro this Fall. As I put my life and my trust fully in God’s hands, not only for the sake of this movement but for everything God has put so strongly on my heart, I ask for your constant prayers and support. I hope to continue the 40 Days for Love devotionals while I’m in the seminary, though I suspect while I discern God’s plan for my life, if this movement is meant to expand, it will have to go without my direct influence. If not, then we shall see where God takes all this in the coming years.
Please remember again to VOTE for the People’s Choice Award, and I will keep you updated as the next campaign approaches.
