Update from Monday's episode

Okay anyone that read my last post knows I was throwing myself a pity party. I don't normally do those. After most of the day was over, I knew I had no right to after the day my husband had. He got laid off.

However all I know is that we watched 'Facing the Giants' and the message of God's love was so over powering that I know that as long as we give Him our best, He's going to do the same in return. And I'm a testament to that over and over...I just need a reminder from time to time and that movie was just the trick.

Facing the Giants isn't a major Hollywood production. It's only has one person you might recognize in it, if you're a football fan. It starts out a little slow and you may even think some of the acting is a little high school production...but after the first clip you'll see below the film starts clicking. My husband and I were bawling through the rest of the film because God's love was evident.

If you're in a place where you need to hear something from God, you may consider finding the film and renting it. It's worth it.

I just read all your posts.. I can't believe how much have gone through over the past couple of days. I am so sorry about your hubby and his job. My hubby lost his job last August and it was a fear like I never known ..

I know you will land on your feet and I sending huge hugs and prayers your way. xoxox

I'm sorry to hear about your husband's job. We've been in almost the same situation before, and I know it's not fun. The only saving grace for us was that it got turned into a 2 or 3 week suspension, instead of him staying fired. I remember how scared I was, but I knew something (at that time I wasn't a born again Christian) was taking care of us, so I helped him battle through. Without it, he wouldn't have his driver's license (he was 28), which is definitely a big help to me!

I loved the clips you posted. I like to think that God is sorta like the coach in the first one---cheering us on to do our best, and not really letting us let up on ourselves when we can give more. I know what you mean by having to be reminded over and over---it always seems that we have to have the realization of the power of God's love, and our part in receiving it. I know I just had one myself...thinking and praying to God going "would you just give me this little bit more?" and then stopping to realize---hey now, I've got a lot to give in return because of everything He's ALREADY given me! It has to happen because we are simply human. :-\

I hope this is a way to brighten your day---I'm having a Mother's Day contest on my blog. Come on over and check it out, maybe consider putting in your own submission. You have two chances to win a 16oz jar candle---one through my contest, that will be from my stash, and one through the company's weekly drawing, which is how I'm ensuring that people's contact information in case they win remains confidential---or you could win 6 votives from my stash.

Hope things start looking up soon! Never stop looking up---it's all for a reason!
