As you watch the film, listen carefully to the words of Alice and the folks that tell their stories. Think about what they must have been going through, how they felt, how various events shaped their lives and who they have become today.
While you watch, also think about your life.
- What events shaped you?
- How have you changed?
- Are there darker and lighter moments in your life? What caused those?
- Have you made any decisions that positively or negatively impacted things?
- Where are you today?
The above questions are only examples. The list of questions and thoughts one might ask could go on for days.
BUT as you watch, it should become evident that Alice’s story is not merely a tale of chance. He was placed here for a reason. We all are. Discovering that purpose is part of our journey.
Remember God’s Word and his promises as you think back about your story and where you are today. A few verses to remember are listed below.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Proverbs 139:14
“But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” Matthew 11:28-29
“But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:6-9
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.” James 1:2-3
“And we know that in all things, God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
God has promised to be there for us. He waits upon us to choose Him. When we do, the journey begins.
In conclusion, there’s a lot to ponder as we watch Super Duper Alice Cooper, and the above-listed verses may seem like a lot to digest as well. As a result, we may find ourselves overwhelmed, distracted, or maybe feel doubtful about life and our surroundings.
However, Alice Cooper’s transformation is an example of the power and magnificence of our Lord. Where some might think there was only darkness and loss, our Creator intervened through His Holy Spirit and provided Salvation and Restoration.
Some 40 authors wrote the Bible over 1500 years and across three different continents. Like Alice, many of these authors had tremendous stories to tell.
The list includes generals, priests, kings, tax collectors, brothers of Christ, government officials, etc. Imagine how different their lives must have been, yet they all share something profound. God transformed them. Let us allow Him to do the same for us.
That’s it for this week. Be well, enjoy Super Duper Alice Cooper, and we’ll catch you next Friday.
Until then, Keep Walkin’ in Faith and Rockin’ with Alice!
