Breakthrough: A Mother’s Unwavering Love
The depth of a mother’s love is beyond measure. Based on true events, this film takes us to a roller coaster ride of emotions of a mother. The story opens with 14-year-old John intentionally doing and undoing things like a typical teenager. He gives his breakfast to the dog. Then he calls his dad by the first name and didn’t do his assignment on family history. These scenes show how a concerned mother makes an effort to connect to her teenage son.
After winning a basketball game in school, John went to a sleepover. The next morning, the three boys played over the frozen Missouri Lake despite knowing it’s not safe there. The plot took a turn when the ice suddenly cracks and the three boys fell on cold water. The two managed to emerge but John fell deeper. Rescuers came to get John’s body. These scenes leave us to thinking that the boy could have avoided the accident if he heeded to the man’s warning. Stubbornness leads to a reckless tragedy.
Upon reaching the hospital, Joyce got confronted by the Doctor who explained their efforts to revive him and yet, John has no pulse for several minutes now. She enters the room and cries out to God to send the Holy Spirit to breathe life into John. She touched his feet and miraculously, his pulse starts ticking again. The Doctor says John may become severely impaired once he wakens. Joyce showed us that no matter what the Doctor says, she keeps her faith in prayer that God listens to a mother’s plea.
There are reflective moments in this story. Joyce didn’t approve of the new pastor Jason and the changes he’s done at church service especially including rap music during praise and worship. Even so, Jason was the first person to comfort her in times of distress. He was by her side when she needed a friend the most. Sometimes, we too misjudge persons in our lives because we do not favor their ways. Later on, we find ourselves accepting them for who they are. The best part is when we realize that the one we used to frown upon turns out as a compassionate soul after all like Jason to Joyce.
John’s rescuer claims himself as an unbeliever. However, he believes he heard a voice when he plunged in the cold lake that led him to find the boy’s body. When they meet again, he told John that if God has plans for him, it may be something pretty special. The accident turned out as a life-changing experience both for the man who erstwhile thought there was no God and the boy who saw how many people have extended their help and prayers for a miracle.
While a mother’s love is a powerful force on Earth, God’s love for us makes a miracle possible.
