If you want to see an extraordinary movie, I highly recommend “The Shack”. You will laugh, you will cry and you will experience a miracle as long as your heart is open.
As someone who has suffered incredible pain in my life from so many sources, I definitely felt healing was the main purpose of this incredible movie. On the way home, I stopped and bought the soundtrack and the book to read. (Yes, I am nuts, but I’m okay with that.)
Sometimes when this life has dealt us too much pain to bear and we let it surround us and encompass us, we lose our hope. We blame ourselves, we blame others and we blame God. However, this movie introduces us to God, Jesus & the Holy Spirit and lets us see through their eyes. Oh, the power of this movie is tremendous.
I spent time praying for another’s hurts while watching this movie. I couldn’t NOT pray. This movie has moved me beyond mere words. To say it is powerful is an understatement. Since seeing the previews, I have been drawn to this movie. I am so grateful I went to see it.
I also had the pleasure of sharing the experience with two great women friends. Each woman felt the same way. Anastasia had previously read the book and mentioned that it was one of the few movies she’s seen that actually does the book justice.
My girlfriends and I enjoyed a wonderful Italian meal afterwards and great conversations as well. I cannot imagine a better end to a great day than a movie and meal with friends.
My heart wants me to share the movie with the man whom God is preparing me for; but I don’t know how to broach the subject with him at present, so I am sure that God will reveal the way.
I love the Lord. I rejoice in being saved by Jesus and I so hope that by sharing with others that they will come to know God through me.
