Are you Fireproof?


If you have not watched this movie, I STRONGLY encourage you to do so! It is amazing! I cried pretty much through the ENTIRE thing. I was so touched by the spirit of it. I even cried for a good while after wards. My husband is VERY good to me, he is constantly doing the 'little' things such as making sure I am covered up at night, so I don't get cold, running me a bubble bath (if he's home) after a long day at work, taking care of my boo boos & cuts with a cool head. I need to follow his example and love him more with the Love of Christ. This movie made me realize that I do not rely on HIM enough in my life. I tend to take Him for granted. I'm not going to apologize for the sudden burst of "Christianity" on my blog as I am not ashamed of it. I have decided that I not only need to Fireproof my marriage, and become closer to Him and my husband, but in other aspects of my life as well. I don't rely on him enough, I don't ask for the help and guidance from him in my daily life as I should. I think that I have definitely taken Him for granted in my life, as I was raised as a strong Christian, and things became a 'routine' for me. Now that I am out on my own, I have let things slack and falter, but no longer will I be doing this. My life is going to be centered around Christ in all aspects of it.

Why shouldn't I ask for help in my daily life? Why shouldn't I ask for his help to give up my worst temptations, such as food, diet coke etc? He is waiting at the door, all I have to do is knock. Why shouldn't I live so those who know me will want to know Him because they know me? I am so excited for this new venture in my life, so excited to start 'really' living. I want to thank each of my readers who constantly inspire me. And many of the blogs that I read 'silently' who also inspire me. I really appreciate you!

This movie changed me spiritually too. I realized how MUCH HE loves me, and WANTS to be with me everyday. I realized the little things He was doing to get my attention and to shower the love on me, and how often I turned away from it (just as the wife did in this movie). I loved the "marriage aspect" of this movie, but the underlying love story that God has for us is what I realized throughout the movie. I too bawled throughout the entire thing! I am glad to know someone else experienced that too.

Heather, thank you for your honestly and your candor. I, too, have put God on the backburner for several years. Just today, I started reading the Bible online again and it was so comforting to me. There are reasons why I gave up on God, but I realize that they are not very good reasons. Is this a movie I can rent from somewhere like Netflix? I'll see if I can find it. DH is not a Christian, but I feel like I always take him for granted and don't show my appreciation enough. It's time for a change!

Yes you can get it from Netflix but be prepared for "A Very Long Wait" we finally gave up and bought it :)
