Movie Review: Facing the Giants

“I want God to bless this team so much people will talk about what He did. But it means we gotta give Him our best in every area. And if we win, we praise Him. And if we lose, we praise Him. Either way we honor Him with our actions and our attitudes.” 

-Coach Grant Taylor, Facing the Giants

It’s a story of impossible dreams, a story of never-give-up courage, and a story of unstoppable faith.

Facing the Giants is a film that will make you laugh, cheer, and gain a greater vision for serving God.

What Stands Between You And Awesome?

What stands between you and awesome? What holds you back from fulfilling your potential? What prevents you from being all that you were created to be? Too many people today are satisfied with less than their best. They attain a level of comfortable achievement and settle into a holding pattern. Day after day, week after week…they repeat the same actions and get the same results. All is calm, all is safe. But are they truly happy? Are they fulfilling God’s purpose for their life? 
In Ecclesiastes 9:10, Solomon, the wisest man on earth, challenges us. 
“Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.”
Solomon did not say, “When you feel like working, work. The most important thing is to have fun.” He challenged us to find work and “do it with thy might.” God calls us to a life of meaningful, profitable work. What prevents us from doing our best in that work? Let’s look at three areas that can hold us back.
