I’ve been writing the Zac-Attack for over a year now, and what I’ve learned is that people need inspiration. You must inspire the troops for the fight or they’re going to get beat.
The people who have let themselves fall over to the other side, the ones who are now working against the message of salvation, what I’ve learned is that they don’t rest. They don’t stop just because the sun has gone down, they don’t take a break, they don’t take the summer off. They’re constantly working on their mission.
Why are we any different?
I’m going to be completely honest here when I say that keeping this blog going has been very hard at times. Sometimes it seems easier to give it up, listen to that voice of doubt which is always whispering in my ear telling me that I’m not making that big of an impact, that I don’t have as many readers as I’d like, that nobody really cares about what I, a 21-year-old man, has to say. That I’m too young, I’m not smart enough, I’m not educated enough, I don’t have a theology degree, I don’t have an English degree, I’m not a famous writer.
All these things constantly swirl around in my head. Believe me, I’ve heard the speech that I’m not good enough, not qualified enough, and I hate to say it, but I’d say half the time I’ve given it to myself.
I don’t quit, even though that seems the easiest way out because I am only 21, I know everything I just went through will only get worse as I get older, the doubt, the struggle, because that’s life. Life is full of it, you just don’t quit.
Now to some, I might sound naive, well I know I am in a lot of things, but one thing I do know is that we can’t afford to cripple ourselves and take ourselves out of the fight for souls. Why? Because those people who are working against us aren’t taking themselves off the battlefield. They’re not even taking breaks, they just keep going and going.
And there is my goal. To keep moving, no matter what, no matter what doubts are eating me, no matter who’s telling me to quit. Because that’s not who we’re supposed to be.
Nobody likes a quitter!
Stay strong, keep the faith, I’m praying for you all.
God bless. Zac.
