Underused Resources

This past weekend we joined some friends to see the new movie War Room. How many times I have heard, “There’s nothing we can do but pray”?  Like it’s better than nothing. War Room reminds viewers that prayer is not the last resort but the foundation, the ultimate resource, for dealing with any challenge, unsolvable problem or stubborn issue. We left the theater thinking of difficult decisions or situations in our lives, among friends or family. 
I’m a fixer by nature.  My daughters tell me I am resourceful. I love a challenge.   I enjoy envisioning multiple ways to approach a problem. But could my fixer nature be a hindrance?  Yes, it could be. One of life’s joys is that God invites us to be involved in what he is doing in the world. But do our strategies slight our most fundamental way to be involved?  War Room spotlights prayer as a consequential weapon in whatever we face. I needed to hear that again. Perhaps you do too.  
For a $10 movie ticket you will be summoned to a new perspective on whatever weighs you down, or backs you into a corner of discouragement. What are you doing this Friday or Saturday night?  Do something that could change your life. See War Room!
