Facing the Giants

I don't watch a lot of movies, but when I heard about a church who'd produced their own movie for a mere $100,000, I wondered about the quality of the film.

I was wrong.

Last night I finished watching Facing the Giants and I was blown away. Maybe it's because the message hit home so clearly and deeply personally, but I was moved to tears throughout the entire movie. It reminded me how God can take willing hearts and use them to change the world, because nothing is impossible for God. And the behind the scenes footage is just as riviting as the actual film.

It's even reaching people right here in South Africa. I was amazed to find out how many people had already bought the movie because they were so moved by the story.

Nothing is impossible for God. The resounding theme is one I'm holding onto.

Here's the synopsis from their website:

From the award-winning producers of FLYWHEEL comes a new, action-packed, family-friendly drama about a high school football coach who draws up a new game plan for his team … and himself.

In his six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never had a winning season. Even the hope of a new season is squelched when the best player on his Shiloh Eagles decides to transfer schools. After losing their first three games of the season, the coach discovers a group of fathers are plotting to have him fired. Combined with pressures at home, Coach Taylor has lost hope in his battle against fear and failure.

However, an unexpected challenge helps him find a purpose bigger than just victories. Daring to trust God to do the impossible, Coach Taylor and the Eagles discover how faith plays out on the field … and off.

With God, all things are possible …

If you haven't see the movie, you can order it here
or where you normally purchase your DVD's.
