CBN's 700 Club: "Celebrity" Is In Your Mind
I was able to speak not as a beauty queen, but as a timid high school student determined to make something of herself. I represented young people nationwide who never attained popularity, were the targets of ridicule, and often questioned God about whether or not they were good enough to be the best at anything. Yesterday, I was not a celebrity. I was the example that "celebrity" is in your mind.
And then, the interview was over. And I may never know how many people were able to watch or the impact it may have had on someone's life. But I believe my story gave someone that extra push to keep going, to keep trying. Why? Because there was a sense of peace that came over me, something like God placing His hand on my shoulder and saying, "Well done."
And that one moment of peace made the last seven years of perseverance all seem worthwhile.
