Encouragement for Today

A Great “WAR” Movie

What is Prayer?

There is currently a movie out that I believe is important and having a major impact.

It is not about global warming. It is not political. It does not preach. It does not condemn.

It is about prayer. It is about battle.

It is called WAR ROOM. It was the number one movie at the box office last weekend.

That says a lot to me.

For such a time as this….

I recommend this movie for the entire family. It was a reminder to me of past memories and past battles. Battles that have been fought on my knees. A reminder of the sweet lady who mentored me as a young mother and wife.

This scripture is something I have been thinking of for several weeks.  And one that I was reminded of while I watched this movie.  Esther was put in a position for a reason.

We are being reminded of something very important….

“For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14

I know that teaching our children about prayer is one of the most important things we can do…and in my humble opinion this movie provides an opportunity to teach that very thing or provide a springboard for discussion.

Is this truly a movie for “such a time as this?”

I love Jesus. If I say nothing else, that is enough. But for those curiosity seekers, I am a 56 year old former special education teacher, current part time CCM Radio Announcer who is married to her high school sweetheart. We have been together for 40 years, married 37 of those years! We have raised two sons, who are now married, have jobs and mortgages. We have our furry son, a West Highland Terrier. It wasn't always easy, and I like sharing some insights from those "mommy" and "teaching" years. I also want to encourage people in their daily life. I believe that the Father speaks to us all the time, sometimes I have been too busy to listen. Even during times of trials and troubles, He is ever present. ~Be Encouraged Today~
