JUNE/JULY 2021 MEDIA PICKS

I finally got to see the movie I’d been trying to go see since April!

The Girl Who Believes in Miracles

It was as good as I’d expected.

I missed seeing it in theaters, which means I had to rent it on my tablet. The cost isn’t the problem; staying awake is. I usually make it through one movie over four nights when I watch in bed. But I watched this movie in ONE sitting!

Sara, a young girl with enviable faith, has a miraculous gift of healing which both fascinates and angers those in her community. It’s a four-hankie movie so be prepared to cry.

My latest personal Bible study is on Micah and this one, part of the Good Book Guide studies, is an excellent one. Designed for use in small groups, large groups, or for personal study, it is easy to follow yet still in-depth. I will be purchasing other books from this series.

Micah has been a fascinating study because it is helping me deal with the current climate of our nation. It’s easy to get your head turned around when so many people are loudly debunking everything you’ve learned as truth. But make no mistake, louder voices don’t make truer words. In fact, it’s often the opposite. Remember, it’s the still, small voice we should be listening to.

I can’t forget the way life used to be
I was a prisoner to the sin that had me bound
And I spent my days
Poured my life without measure
Into a little treasure box
I’d thought I’d found
Until the day when Jesus came to me
And healed my soul
With the wonder of His touch

With a new featured book and a new featured movie, I thought I’d go back a little with my featured song. I remember the first time I heard this song. It was like someone had reached into the recesses of my soul and poured my feelings so eloquently into song. I felt so free in Christ; I knew He’d cleansed me. Yet when I looked around, I knew I hadn’t quite received the same forgiveness from others. They didn’t know the whole story; they didn’t know the pain that surrounded my actions. But I had given it all to Jesus. While their judgement stung a little, the bottom line was that it didn’t matter what they thought. It only mattered what HE thought. And that I was His.

If you ever feel unworthy or less than in others’ eyes, just remember that you are EVERYTHING to Him. He gave it all for you; all that’s left is for you to give it all to Him.
