You wouldn’t think that you could get much inspiration from a commercial but you most definitely can! My pastor does it! The weekend of the Super Bowl, he does a really fun message that focuses on commercials. He takes lots of different commercials and shares a brief theological message for each one. He finds some funny ones so it can be pretty entertaining, but he also find some that are very serious and either pull at your heart strings or really make you think.
This year’s message was no different.
He had some amazing things to share and these are a few things that I took away from the message…
You are not who others say you are, you are who GOD says you are.
Don’t let others define you and tell you what you can or cannot do. The inspiration for this thought was Derrick Coleman. What an amazing accomplishment that young man has made!
Trust God with the vision He’s given you.
Again, don’t let others determine what you’re supposed to do with your life. If God has given you a vision, even if others think you’re crazy or silly for pursuing it, if you know that it’s God’s will for you life then do it!
Setbacks are an opportunity for a comeback.
I love this! We all have setbacks and we all have things go wrong. That just means we have the opportunity to overcome that hurdle and then we will have a testimony to share! God can do amazing things out of things we think have gone horribly wrong.

Oh, and for the last one – have a box of tissue handy. WOW! Talk about something that’s hard to watch!
