An “Unusual” Story ...

Check out this excerpt from a story Cheryl posted at FireprooftheMovie.com:

“I am an unusual case. I have been divorced now for four years, after two and a half years of marriage with my ex-husband. The divorce was sudden and quick, with neither of us really knowing why we were doing it. We shocked our family and our friends. He even lost a couple of his friends, which I am still heartbroken about. Once we settled all the legal matters, we pretty much severed contact with each other permanently … until this year. …

“I (recently) went with my mom to see FIREPROOF. I immediately felt God speaking to my heart. I was in utter tears at the end of the movie, and my mom just sat there holding me for several minutes as the credits played. I didn’t know what to think. In my mind, it was too late for us. We were already divorced. God, however, laid it on my heart to purchase The Love Dare. Despite all logic, I bought it. I am on day 22 now. It has not been easy. The last encounter with my ex-husband was met with a combination of anger and gratefulness. I know God is doing a mighty work in my heart, and I no longer view our marriage, him, myself, or the institution of marriage and the roles of husbands and wives the same. I don’t know where God is leading me in all this, but I do know that He is in control, and that whatever happens will be for my good (and my ex-husband’s good) and God’s glory.”

Always believe in God's plan for you. Be patient for He has a Blessing for you. I've seen Fireproof twice and would see it again.... and go thru the tears. I took my ex-wife to see it and I am pretty sure it hit her hard as well me. I know she felt some guilt. But the reason I took her is to help her find a relationship back with God. I've been divorced for a year and I still pray for her to find God.
I have a couple of friends who are going thru a rough marriage and I suggested them to see this movie. My advice to them was that God Blessed their marriage and don't let sin take that away. And through the storms be each others rock... and try to win at your marriage. If not for you, for your children.

May your marriage be restored. May the Lord have the credit.

My husband & I went to see this movie twice. We both loved it. I prayed that God would open my husband's eyes to what the moral of the story was. I want to thank the actors for making this movie come to life & Christ for allowing this message to be told to us that need it to hear it. Put Christ first & the rest will follow. That's what I plan to do...Thanks!
