God doesn’t always answer our prayers in the way that we hope. My friend Mel just wrote a post about that.
Sometimes God works a miracle when we find ourselves backed into a corner facing our greatest fear. My friend Charity can attest to that.
Sometimes God does the unexpected to get our attention. You can read my story about that.
God still does miracles today. Do you believe that?
Last month Adam and I attended a pre-screening of the Miracles from Heaven movie starring Jennifer Garner and Queen Latifah. This movie made me cry, a lot—and I don’t think it’s just because I am great with child either.
Miracles from Heaven is based on the true story of the Beam family. The majority of the movie revolves around one of the Beam daughters, her complex health issues and how her family deals with it. Mrs. Beam (played by Garner) questions her faith as she watches her daughter suffer.
The acting and story-telling are well done. This movie will cue your tears and tug on your heartstrings.
The band Third Day performs in the film as well.
Miracles from Heaven is in theatres now and we recommend that you go see it!
Watch the trailer for Miracles from Heaven.
In honor of the movie’s release we are giving away a light blue, adult medium shirt from the pre-screening of Miracles from Heaven. One the front is Job 9:10, “He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.”
