wreck-it-ralphFound this while looking through pictures to post for Throwback Thursday.   After re-reading, I’ve made some changes.

Wreck-It Ralph is lonely, outcast and tired of being the bad guy. After 30 years of watching good guy, Fix-It Felix, Jr. be a hero and welcomed by the other peeps in the game, he decides to do something about. Ralph lives in the dump and is all lone each night when the arcade closes. He leaves the game in search of a medal.

When Hero’s Duty, a new first-person shooter game arrives, Ralph sees it as his ticket to heroism and happiness. He sneaks into the game determined to win a medal. Ralph succeeds in winning a medal but accidentally unleashes a deadly Cy-bug that threatens wipe out every game in the arcade. When Ralph attempts to return home he crash-lands into the cart-racing game Sugar Rush. Ralph loses his medal to another outcast Vanellope von Schweetz.

Vanellope is deemed a “glitch” by King Candy the ruler of Sugar Rush. Vanellope wants the medal because it looks like a gold coin. A gold coin is the required entry fee in the weekly cart race.  King Candy doggedly tries to prevent Vanellope from entering the race. For some strange reason he must prevent her from winning the race. He claims she was a mistake and shouldn’t even exist.  Felix goes searching for Ralph because without Ralph their game is out-of-order. Out-of-order games get shut down.  In a moment of desperation Ralph sees Vanellope’s picture on the cabinet of Sugar Race  and  learns that something is wrong in King Candy’s the explanation. It turns out that it is King Candy not Vanellope who doesn’t belong in the game.  King Candy is really Turbo from another racing game.  After Turbo’s game is shut down he ends up in Sugar Race and becomes King Candy.  He manipulated the plot and game peeps into believing his version of reality. 

Satan is like King Candy he twists the truth and reality to fit his plans. He wants us to believe his lies not God’s truth.  He tells us that we are worthless, a mistake, an outcast and have no value. While the truth is the opposite:

I am not a mistake. I was created in God’s image, He has a plan and purpose for my life. He hasn’t forgotten about me. God loves me.

A new year can mean a fresh start and a chance for the best year yet. It can also mean one more year of the same old stuff and junk that is holding me back. Whether 2016 is the best year yet or not is up to me.  I must decide take the steps necessary to make it the best year yet. What changes, thoughts or actions do you need to make for 2016  the best year so far.
