Twilight Bella: Unstoppable Force
Do you think—if Bella could look forward from her first meeting with Edward and see all the pain she would experience because of her association with him—do you think she would return to Phoenix?
No scar from James, no stitches from a shattered birthday party, no aching void in her chest when Edward left, no fire burning through her veins after her daughter’s birth. Would she look at all that coming pain and walk away from Edward forever?
What about looking back?
From the end of Breaking Dawn when Bella returns triumphant to her own home, perfect and perfectly happy, would she look back over the previoius few years and say, “No, it wasn’t worth it”?
Of course not. That’s the thing about Bella. She keeps slogging through. No matter how crappy things seem, or in fact are, she keeps going. And she is rewarded for it.
That is no less than what we’re called to do as a people. Christianity is not a promise of roses and chocolate. In fact, God clearly warns us that sometimes life will suck. But if we just keep putting one foot in front of the other, if we just keep believing God is doing the best for us, we are promised that one day we will look back able to say, “It was all worth it.”
So many biblical truths can be illustrated with scenes from The Twilight Saga that Jane Wells wrote a Bible study bringing the two together. Glitter in the Sun: A Bible Study Searching for Truth in the Twilight Saga makes a great gift for personal devotions, but also works as a small group study guide complete with conversation starters. You can order your copy of Glitter in the Sun here or from Amazon.com.
