I have known Tucker Brumley for years now, but as I’ve been here on the Eastside for 15 months, I’ve gotten to know him more personally. As a faithful member of our teen ministry and a senior at Issaquah High School, I can tell you that Tucker is a young man striving to build character. In my opinion, we forget how tough this world is, and that Satan is a master at lying to our teens about important issues such as value, self-worth, significance, popularity and character. Without faith, strong convictions and tremendous empathy and support from family, it’s just really hard. Tucker has all of these, and is committed to growing in his faith. He is a member of the Issaquah varsity wrestling team, and is doing very well (see the video below!). As I watch him wrestle, fighting to get upper hand on his opponent, I can’t help but think of our lives as Christians. In this world, it’s not easy. Satan is not a friendly opponent, but is constantly looking for ways to exploit our weaknesses and get us to believe crucial, dangerous lies. He is literally trying to “pin us” spiritually! Let’s fight, wrestle, and never give up. With God on our side, we will never lose. Thank you Tucker for setting an example in this, and for fighting hard as a teen to endure and get the upper hand!
