Facing the Giants

This is a movie I had heard about several months ago, but we never got a chance to go see it in the theaters. Last night we had a movie night at church and watched this movie. It was very good. For those of you who haven't heart of it, it is a Christian movie made by a church. It is about a football coach of a
Christian school and many of his struggles. Those struggles lead him to lean on God, along with his team (some even becoming Christians). It's a neat movie showing us how we should trust in God.

*Possible Spoiler* (I'm trying to be cryptic for those who haven't seen it, but I'm not sure if I'm successful!).

The only problem I had with this movie is it gave the impression that if we just trust God, then all our prayers will be answered in the affirmative. Although they talked about the fact that they would praise God even through the bad times, everything works out miraculously exactly how they prayed for in the end. Now, I believe God performs miracles everyday......but he doesn't always. I believe God answers prayer, but sometimes His answer is NO. Bad things still happen to God's children (even if we're completely trusting him for the outcomes).

Of course, a movie has to have a happy ending. So, I'll assume that's why the outcome turned out as it did. I really do recommend seeing this movie. It will make you laugh, cry, and praise God.
