You’re in for a double dose of the Newlywed Lefebvres today! Being off for the holiday weekend meant finally getting to sleep in a little bit late, and completely spacing on writing our normal Monday post. To be completely honest, this weekend was such a blessing my mind was elsewhere. 🙂
So, better late than never, we have two posts for you today: Monday & today’s regularly scheduled programming!
Typically, neither Craig nor I are much of the movie-goer type. I think the whole time we were dating we went to the movies once – maybe twice. There just hasn’t been anything worth going to the theater for — until recently. Especially as Craig & I grow closer in our relationship to Christ, more and more of the aspects of “Hollywood” in the world hurt our hearts, and we steer clear of those items. Whereas once upon a time we were able to go to the movies and see anything that ‘sounded good’ to us, now we are more discerning about what we take in.
So far in 2014 we have been truly blessed with the amount of Christian movies airing on the silver screen:
Even the questionable Noah…
Last night, we had the privilege of enjoying this one:
We didn’t even realize this movie had a Christian influence until Casting Crowns posted about it on Facebook:
While Craig and I, obviously, aren’t parents – yet (Hurry up, Jonah Elizabeth!!! 🙂 ), this was a refreshing film for any Christian. It was funny without being vulgar. The language was colorful without being crude. The costuming was beautiful and vibrant without being immodest. This storyline was compelling without being full of sex or violence.
Trace Adkins even spoke about Jesus’ amazing love for us, in spite of who or what we are.
If you’re looking for a night out, this is a movie for the whole family to see! Be sure to support films like these!!
And now, for our regularly scheduled programming:
Folks. If you still don’t believe in the power of prayer, let me tell you know that you better open up your heart and your ears.
I have been praying for something to happen for about six months now – maybe a little bit longer. I won’t divulge what that is to protect the person for whom I have been praying, but know this: I knew I couldn’t change the situation. I knew God was the ONLY ONE who could do anything in this situation. I prayed for His Hand to work. For His Will to be done – not mine.
And the impossible happened.
In all seriousness, it would be like my telling you I wanted to wake up and find our neighbors on our doorstep, check in hand, letting us know they felt sorry for us and knew we were ready to move, so they were going to buy our house – with cash. And then that happening.
What I prayed for is something I felt God wanted to occur, but I knew it was just outrageous to even begin to consider. I didn’t know how to get from Point A to Point B, and so I asked Him to take over. I told Him that if it was really His Will, He would have to handle things because it would be a miracle if it happened.
And people, it HAPPENED. It may have taken a little time and a little patience. But it happened. My prayers were answered and His Will is being done.
To God Be The Glory.
If there is anything you are struggling with, ask for His help and have faith.
All our love to you friends. We pray for all God’s blessings upon you.
