“From a Written Script to Blank Pages”

Mo Max 1- small

Theatre, since her freshmen year in high school, has been the top priority and influence in her life. Life solely led by God, focused on God, and listening to God was tampered severely by her consumption in theatre. Trying to impress her teacher and classmates led her down an internally infected path, which on the outside looked like theatrical success. Coming up on her senior year of high school her theatre career took a sudden turn. The seniors were no longer wanted to participate because soon they would be graduating; she was ignored, even though she was one of the top students for the previous 3 years. She soon began to realize her effort in anything other than her relationship with Christ was a waste especially seen in Theatre. “After all these years I’ve exhausted my resources for the department that was slowly making me into a glimpse of a memory.” All throughout high school her plan was concrete, a written out script leading into a career in theatre. At the end of her senior year she realized the instability in her own plans. “There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death.” (Proverbs 14: 12).

As she is beginning her freshmen year in college, she now has a set of blank pages empty for God to fill with His plans for her life. Once being consumed to impress others, her aim is to please One. She shares this verse: “And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” Philippians 1:6
