“Maybe it was a dream, but it felt so real.”

As believers overcome has to be a word in our everyday lives. We must overcome many obstacles in this walk. Jesus tells us in the word, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NIV) Jesus’ victory over the world helps us to overcome our problems through Him. And that was the lesson Sarah Taylor had to learn while dealing with Colton Pratt.

In the back story, Sarah (Jaycee Lynn) turned Colton (Aaron U. Brown) in for damaging a statue of Christ where he received two hundred hours of community service as penance. This in turn caused a negative reaction as he quit going to church and became a bad guy leading a bunch of bullies. He lost sight of the truth. Whenever he had the opportunity, would make life miserable for Sarah and her other church friends. Threw his studies and job to the wind, being led astray by anger and hostility. Making others do his homework and covering for him on his job. Disrespecting his parents on a level that is heart wrenching.

Sarah, is the best player on her high school tennis team and is highly respected by her peers. She walks around blaming herself for Colton’s fall from grace until…One night while driving home from a tennis match, Colton and Blake run into Sarah, head on. Colton is declared clinically dead, but wakes up on his own. Sarah’s knee is damaged in the accident. With this second chance, will Colton get a revelation? Will Sarah overcome her knee injury and thus overcome her discouragement from the accident? You will just have to watch the movie to find out.
