This past weekend a feel good Christian movie opened in theaters across the country. I didn't know anything about it, but tonight i was searching for a movie to watch and came across "Miracles from Heaven" starring Jennifer Garner, Queen Latifah and various other stars. The story is very close to my very own story, except it was happening to a 10 year old little girl. The story is based on a true story and much of it takes place in Burleson, Tx and Boston, Ma. This story touched me at the very core of my being and I cried throughout the entire movie.
Some of you are believers and know all about faith and prayer. Others of you may not know what I am talking about. This story revolves around 2 different themes, one is the stress and strain that an illness can have on the family and the parents of the one who is sick. But, it also revolves around this little girl and her faith that God was with her through everything. So much so that her faith brought peace to another child that was suffering terribly from cancer.
As you watch the movie unfold you will see how the mother's faith was tested, lost and then found again. You also see that the little girl despite her pain never lost her faith and shared it with those that she came in contact with. In the end a beautiful miracle unfolds and faith is restored and peace granted.
Pay close attention to the ending of the movie. Be aware of all the different people that were behind the scenes that the family knew nothing about that were drawn into this little girl's life. Many people behind the scenes worked through the Will of God and brought this girl's story to the attention of the people that needed to hear it most. I promise you that even though you may not know it there are people all around you that are touched and inspired by you whether you know it or not.
This story is a beautiful story and is something that I highly recommend watching. For anyone who is struggling with their own faith, or who might be going through severe medical problems this film will give you inspiration and hope for a better future and total and complete healing.
God is the great physician, He knows your body better than anyone. If it is His will you will be totally and wholely delivered from whatever it is that you are going through. Open your eyes, because whether you believe it or not miracles happen around you daily and if you are focused on the world and not on your spiritual walk you stand a big chance of missing them. Prayer is a vehicle for our hopes and desires to be present to God. Faith is believing without truly knowing the outcome. Faith is believing without seeing and if you have faith and use prayer anything is possible.
My story is very similar to little Annabel's so this really touched home for me. I am so glad that I stumbled across this movie tonight because I needed to see it after the news that I got on Tuesday. I know that I am not alone, I know that God is always with me and will carry me through the hardest times when I am weary and down hearted. But, after seeing this movie I honestly know that I have nothing to fear.
Listen to that small still voice that speaks to you, know that you are in the Hands of God and that there is nothing that is impossible for those of us that believe.
I usually don't go out of my way to talk about movies in my blog, but this is something that I honestly think everyone should see. I believe that this little girl got to speak with God and recieved the complete healing that she needed. I also believe that her faith gave hope to little Haley and that made all the difference in the world for her. Haley had no fear of dying and lived her last few weeks in harmony and peace.
I can tell you that 24 years ago I was diagnosed with cancer and was given 18 months to live. I am still here and I still believe.
May God bless you and touch you tonight. Take the time and watch the movie, I think you will be glad that you did.
As always my hopes and dreams are with you,
