I can't help but laugh at the movie, but seriously so, there are some events so catastrophic and so traumatic in our lives that, unlike the movie, are NO laughing matter. However, similar to the movie, such events cause very traumatizing and lasting EFFECTS. In the movie, Ricky Bobby's imaginations went running wild to the point where he, being in perfect physical health, believed that he lost his ability to walk and had to be placed in a mental institution. His mind was so effected by the tragedy he suffered on the race track. BUTTT, glory be to God that
"our weapons of warfare are not carnal, but MIGHTY in God for the pulling down of strongholds and CASTING DOWN IMAGINATIONS and every high thing that exalteth itself against the KNOWLEGE OF GOD, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ(ref. 2 Corinthians 10:4&5, emphasis mine)."
There may be some things in your life that have caused such catastrophic EFFECTS, but I thank God for His LIVING Word which overules it all and gives us the lasting AFFECT which is His own heart, even eternity with Him.
Lord, heal, deliver and set us free from mental trauma. In Your name Jesus, we pray. Amen.
Stay in the race, overcome the hurdles and keep passing the baton. We are following VICTORY and His name is JESUS \oO/
