Fireproof

Last night Chad and I were finally able to watch this movie. And, I must say that all of the hype is right on the money. Great movie.

I won't give the plot away in case you haven't seen it yet. I will say this though. The way the love of God is described is absolutely amazing. It is described simply, but thoroughly.

God loves me unconditionally, without wavering or moving. I am beginning to think/know that He expects the same from me. I am guilty of seeing the negative, irritating, or wrong in everyone around me, although I only see myself as right, wonderful, and perfect. Why is this? I imagine it's pride.

In recent days, God has been using different mediums to challenge my heart and mind about the love(or in some cases, the lack there of) that I have for others.

So, now I ask you. Do you love others like you love yourself? And is your marriage, and your life "fireproof"?

It was such a good movie. I imagine we will watch it again. I really enjoyed it and I cried a little and laughed a little, also. It was thought provoking about Gods love and our love.There is a vast difference.

My sister-in-law told me about this movie. She really liked it. Her church is actually offering the Fireproof Bible study. I hope to watch it soon.

That movie made me cry. Haha. I watched it Sunday before evening service.. Nobody, no matter how much they admit it love anyone as much as they do themselves. I don't show myself the physically attention but inside I want what I want and when I don't get it I get a little provoked. However, I try to do things to help others. I think my life is pretty fireproof. no marriage! haha.
