This movie helped heal my heart
3 March 2017 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

A perfect 10/10. I was thinking how am I going to sell this movie so everyone I know watches it? I don't need to sell it, is the conclusion I came to. I'm going to share a text I sent to some amazing friends who I watched this with!

"I love papa! I love talking with Him! I love how he uses things we experience to inspire us! I love how he changes our hearts first and then the grace and power flow. I love how he gets excited when we are excited! And I love how happy he is right now. That the little victories are big victories in the kingdom of God. I just want to share this with everyone lol!"

So I will. I love the best friend I have in Jesus. That I can talk to him about anything and he cares. I love what he did for me. I love the Holy Spirit. I love the warmth he brings, the comfort, kindness and power that comes and flows through me. And I love how they are all God.

My advice to others is set aside what you think you know for an open mind and a new experience. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of truth, let her do the thinking and you do the watching and feeling.

Just so you know my biases have been set aside for this movie review. I don't like a lick of country music! And Tim McGraw is in this movie! The king of country! The message is so powerful I ignored all my biases and just experienced an amazing movie!
