Sunrise in Heaven: Enduring Love

Based on the novel His Sunrise My Sunset, Jan recounts her love story to an Air Force soldier named Steve Hurst.

The film Sunrise in Heaven opened with an old version of Jan and Steve, talking about what they can still do together while driving on the road and then an accident happened.  They were both sent to the hospital.

Their adult daughters Terri and Michele came to the hospital to comfort Jan, but her thoughts were elsewhere. It brought her back to the day she first met Steve.

It was in 1964 when Steve got stationed at Vandenberg Air Force Base, where Jan’s dad Jim, was an officer who trains recruits. Jan was among the young girls who served food at a canteen. Steve was instantly attracted to Jan the moment he laid eyes on her. To him, it was love at first sight. But Jan was quick to turn him down. Her dad already forewarned her not to date a GI.

These scenes remind us there was an era not so long ago where teenagers obey their parents no matter how strict they are. Having to follow their parent’s rules outweighs peer pressure.

There are several scenes that youngsters of today’s generation can learn from when it comes to courtship. Jan thinks her dad’s antics towards Steve is crazy.

However, she tells Steve how important it is for her that they get her dad’s blessing.

Seeing them consult their thoughts and feelings to a pastor is a good reflection to young audiences. Both of them showed openness and respect not only for each other but to the people involved in their lives.

Jim thinks Steve is soft; that is why he tested his patience. He wanted to know if his spirit is weak and if he will turn his back on Jan because he was getting in their way.

Their confrontation scene will make us understand Jim’s intention as a father and that is to save his daughter from heartbreak before it even happens.

Back at the hospital, Terri and Michele showed a contrasting outlook about their dad’s condition. His spine was already damaged, and he is only relying on a respirator as life support. Terri believes in the power of prayer. While Michele confronts the reality that for her, Steve has a bleak chance of surviving.

Despite their differences, Michele reached out to Pastor Robert so he could pray for their family. The prayer scene reminds us of how powerful prayer can be to ease a soul from desperation.

Sunrise in Heaven gives us a story that will help us understand how to accept challenges in life and anchor it by faith.

Painted Horses: Hunting for Treasure Within

Teaching is a noble profession. Learning is not only confined to the lectures discussed within the four walls of a classroom. There are several nuggets of wisdom derived in this tale of encouragement and hope.

Main character Pam came to a town called Paris to apply as a teacher of US History. The principal forewarned her that the teens have a knack of spitting a teacher out.

She was desperate for the job so insurance can cover her baby’s surgery. The boy has club feet, and the young mom wanted to support his medical-related expenses. Pam sets an example of how a determined mom carries the weight of her responsibility towards her son in spite of an impending challenge presented to her.

On her first day in class, Pam’s nerves were immediately put to the test as a cold Zoey tells her she does what she wants. To spite her further, Zoey walks out of class, hid her lesson plan and car keys. She even lied to make Pam come to the principal’s office. Upon her return, AJ and Rex almost had a brawl if not for Dillon’s entrance. Dillon’s big frame and silence made his classmates wary of him. Later on, Pam learned that each student behaved for a reason. The students’ personalities were no different from those people we get to meet in our lives. They touch our lives for a reason too. Differences make us unique and capable to relate to one another if we so will it.

Intending to keep the students’ attention during class, Pam invited ex-Marines officer Clay to tell them a story related to treasure hunting and the history of Tennessee. Then Pam orchestrated a plan to search for the lost union bank coins. These scenes remind us of how important it is for us to appreciate stories about our ancestors. The possible fortune they will discover, and their adventures tell us how they valued the land they once fought.

There are several takeaways from this film. Pam’s initiative to reach out to AJ and Dillon encouraged both to face their doubts instead of just going with the flow. AJ turned a new leaf after Pam saved him from the cops and fed him with a home-cooked meal. Dillon, though not speaking, takes the books Pam offers him to read out loud to his horse. This way, he can practice doing away with his stuttering problem.

An unexpected climactic twist happens to Pam towards the end of this tale. When they accused her of malicious intent to boot her out from the school. Her revelation will astound you. On the other hand, Dillon’s final act to save his teacher comes as a surprise.

The core message of this film is to not judge a book by its cover.

Same Kind of Different as Me

Same Kind of Different as Me

Same Kind of Different as Me: Breaking Barriers to Personal Healing

This faith-centric drama film Same Kind of Different as Me tells us that we are all homeless just working our way home. The story was based on true events that happened in the lives of couple Ron and Debbie. What made their story inspiring was how amending a marriage strain has helped them form an unconventional friendship with a broken homeless man.

The story began with Ron narrating about having a big house with a broken home. On their 19th year in marriage, he got enamored over another woman. Like any wife, Debbie was angry and hurt upon knowing that her husband betrayed her. In a heartbreaking confrontation scene, she asked Ron to call the girl. Debbie tells her she doesn’t blame her and that she forgives her. While most of us find it difficult to forgive those who wronged us, Debbie’s action reminds us of the meaning of forgiveness both to the offender and offended. Debbie freed Ron’s girl from guilt and herself from the emotional pain it entails.

As a way of making up to her, Ron went with Debbie to a kitchen where she volunteers to cook and feed homeless people. He was adamant to join her but eventually conceded in helping serve free meals.

At one time, an enraged man came hitting the glass wall panel. Debbie coaxed Ron to give him food on the table. The small talk led to a friendship that goes beyond social status, race or color. Denver opened up to Ron past events in his life where he was treated like a slave. The African-American boy became a man who behaved badly because of the cruelty his circumstances had him go through.

There are many kinds of Denver around us that look rough and tough on the outside but harboring deep-seated wounds on the inside. Compassion is a way for us to show God’s love so we can lead them to cross their bridges towards redemption. As Denver says, the journey of the homeless may often begin in a hopeless case but it doesn’t have to end there.

There are several thought-provoking scenes throughout this film. Ron harbored ill-feelings against his dad. Both father and son misjudged each other due to lack of communication. Debbie became vulnerable to her emotions after finding out she has Cancer and Ron’s dad was insensitive to her feelings at one point. These scenes teach us about understanding the feelings that comes between spoken words.

Ron, Debbie and Denver’s story showed us their individual struggles and having to connect one’s life to another. We may make life-changing decisions that create a ripple effect in the lives of those we touch. Denver’s outlook in life changed before Debbie passed away. Ron continued her dream of having a place for the homeless.

Everybody may be different but the same kind of different as me.

Runaway Hearts

Runaway Hearts

Runaway Hearts: The Courage to Live

This film tells a compelling story about two kids who ran away from home and came across two adults who ran away from their past circumstances. An 11-year-old Tevin and 5-year-old Angel have the same mom Maze but different fathers who they haven’t met.

The story took a turn when one day, Maze overdose on drugs. On impulse, Tevin drags Angel out of the house until the ambulance took their mom’s body away. Tevin takes his mom’s boyfriend Dill’s drug money. He thought he needed a bike so they can go farther. The kids went to Gabe’s yard, and Tevin took one of his bikes, but Angel prodded to return it.

As viewers, we think they were too young to experience this kind of messy ordeal. But it happens in real life. Tevin showed us the survival instincts of an elder brother who was out to save and protect his little sister from the odds they face.

Meanwhile, Gabe was attending a counselling session after his release from jail. He was hard on himself after a trauma he experienced when he was a teenager. His dad frequently hits his mom. He was coming home from school when his parents died from a car crash. His younger brother Jerry sustained severe injuries.

Unfortunately, social services separated them. Jerry ended up with abusive foster parents. Gabe became an architect but resorted to alcohol to ease his pain. He was drunk-driving when he crashed into a bus resulting in multiple injuries on the passengers, which is why he was in jail. Gabe’s pain runs deep into his soul. Issues we face like cruelty from people who are supposed to care for us takes a long time to heal. Only God’s mercy can save our soul from self-incrimination.

After being away from their town for a long time, Gabe returns to his former home. Emma was his love interest when they were young. She would catch him looking at her from afar. Emma and Gabe were both lonely souls who yearn to love and love in return. They tell us that their separation from each other no matter how long a time it was cannot erase the love that they hold in their hearts.

The kids used Gabe’s treehouse as their shelter. Gabe kept mum to the authorities even when they knew about the kids’ whereabouts. Meanwhile, Dill trailed them and took the chance to retrieve his money. The culminating scene will leave you to the edge of your seats. The ending implied that Gabe and Emma could become adoptive parents to Tevin and Angel soon.

Ultimately, the film’s message is for us to use courage as a means of living a life that is better than our past. Gabe’s conversation with the counsellor taught us we can’t change what was, but we can change what will be. Our past experiences may influence our present and future self but not defined by it.

The Adventures of Chris Fable: A Boy’s Symbolic Quest  

The Adventures of Chris Fable

The Adventures of Chris Fable: A Boy’s Symbolic Quest  

The Adventures of Chris Fable is an imaginative film that tells the story of a runaway boy named Chris who lives on thieving for a Fagin-like character Iggy. The preacher Evangeline caught him pilfering inside the church and held him to return the candlesticks. She mentioned The Bible as the most important book, so he took it along with other books he got in his bag. Iggy says that books are worthless and he wanted metals only.

He serves a master called the prince and the children in the junkyard were all his servants. Chris had a nightmare that there was chaos in the land which brought him back to Evangeline. He confessed that his father was a fisherman. He didn’t want his kind of life and rules, so he stole his father’s money and lost them all along the way. Evangeline coaxed him to find his father. She said that he would forgive all his sins and take him back.

These scenes remind us about ourselves going astray from the rules of our heavenly father. All of us are sinners, and we need to search for the path that will bring us back to Him.

Another thought to ponder was the bag that Chris carries in this journey. It represented the excess baggage we find difficult to let go. We think it is part of our being even when it weighs us down. Chris showed that when he encountered The Cross, he immediately it all.

The film presented it in symbolic form meaning the characters that Chris encountered in his quest represented a trait in a human soul including Faith, Hope, and some persons who acted as distractions to his path. Much like a life’s course in itself.

We have a lot of distractions such as getting what we want at an instant and staying in a comfort zone like Electric City. We indulge into a mirage of worldly pleasures that gets us sidetracked from our pursuit to spiritual enlightenment. Following Evangeline’s advice, we should remove our eyeglasses filled with deceit that blocks us from seeing the truth that lay before us.

There were characters too whose purpose was to show up and help Chris in times of his distress. One police offered his whip so Chris can get out of the sticky pond. A man named Grant told Chris hero stories and taught him to use a sword. These characters represent our good-natured friends. Friends who guide us, cares for our welfare and protect us against harm’s way whenever necessary.

The core message in this story is choosing to go the narrow gate instead of the wide one for it leads to destruction while the narrow path leads to Celestial City or a hopeful land. As viewers to this tale, parental guidance is recommended. The presentation fits early teens; however, the meaning of some scenes needs a further explanation so the youngster can relate it to Christianity.

Grace Unplugged: A Plug and Play between Dreams and Realities

Grace Unplugged

Grace Unplugged tells a story about a teenage daughter and dad relationship. Having just turned 18, Grace felt that singing alongside her dad Johnny at the worship band was constraining her. She felt that she’s missing opportunities elsewhere. She grew up knowing that her father was a famous rock star.  Who hit the charts on Billboard and she was only a shadow of his fame. She becomes defensive in having her way with her life.

Regardless of a Christian upbringing, most teens are out to prove to their parents that they have gone past childhood. Believing they can handle life’s issues without their upper hand. Grace only knew her dad as a singer.  But she missed to realized his love for family and God that outweighs fame.

The story came to a turn when Johnny’s former manager Mossy came to visit. His father’s former boss offered to include him on tour but he declined. Grace recorded her version of Johnny’s hit song Misunderstood and emailed it to Mossy. After a heated argument with her dad, Grace boldly goes to LA to pursue a singing career. Her naiveté towards her new audience excites her. Having a car, her place, getting dressed up by an image maker and meeting the boss of Sapphire Music provided temporary happiness.

These scenes remind us about having desires that please our eyes and feelings. But it diverts our attention away from God.

Ego overcame Grace that she turned her back when dad asked him to come home. She enjoyed the cheers and the spotlight, but when she’s in her room, she felt the loneliness of being alone and away from home. Grace learned that her new circle of people has underlying motives and adding up the pressure to compose a new song, she felt losing her game.

The self-pressure we impose upon ourselves is no different from what Grace has shown us. We have ego instead of acknowledging that we needed God’s direction and our elders’ guidance to show us a better way than we think we are capable of doing.

Amidst the odds, Grace kept her morals like when she walked out on the TV personality upon overhearing his plans to take her to his place. Another was when she resisted the song about the one-night stand. Quentin who handles Grace’s wardrobe became an unlikely friend. Incidentally, he and his Christian family has seen Grace and Johnny sing together at church a while back. It reminded Grace about getting back into God’s favor. He gave her a book that she read while on the tour that helped her realize that her family and the church was her home.

In a nutshell, the film tells us that all of us may fall short in our roles in life, be it a parent or a child. When we do, we can always turn to God’s love to keep us connected in spite of differences in perspective.

China Cry Movie Review

China Cry

China Cry: Keeping Christianity under Communist Invasion

The Christian movie China Cry is a riveting drama based on the life story of the main character Sung Neng Yee who became Nora Lam. The setting was in Shanghai in 1941, a decade before China’s Great Revolution. The Sung family belonged to the privileged class. Neng Yee was their pampered princess. Her childhood lifestyle ended when the Japanese army invaded Shanghai. These scenes tell us how a war between nations affects people from all walks of life regardless of stature.

There were several heartbreaking scenes in this film. Dr. Sung got detained in the hospital for days and was unjustly accused of stealing a large amount of money from the hospital. Soldiers marked their door and forced them to leave the house. These scenes pushed her to desire her professors’ respect. She fulfilled a feat when she ranked third highest honor on graduation day. She claims it as a moment that eased their humiliation. It reminds us that those who suffered quietly the most strive harder to overcome trials in life and those whose hurt runs deep endures pain in suffering. For Neng Yee, her graduation was the quiet victory that made her become strong-willed.

The film intensively deliberated on the depth of Capitalism and Communism’s ideology. In that era, officials of the New China insinuate that machines will replace workforce in all professions in the future. They believe that societies will collapse due to modern technology that is why they must impose forced labor.

Neng Yee married Cheng Shen who migrated from HongKong. Both knew the repercussions of their union and yet, they chose to stand by each other until the end. Love and commitment held their marriage especially when each of them went under detailed questioning about their personal lives. Their character as individuals and couple teaches us about trust, holding on and letting go when the situation calls for it.

During her detention, she wrote about her experience in a Christian boarding school. She recalled the learnings of faith and initiated talking to God. A female soldier forced her to admit that she is a Christian. She was punished through a firing squad. Miraculously, a strong wind saved her. By then she knew it was God that saved her. She began to feel a promise of hope.

The family continued to suffer but this time, Neng Yee was hopeful. While looking for milk for her second newborn, she found a small Christian group that prayed together. She joined their sessions until they got raided. These scenes mean that even under a pressured condition, Christians will gather to encourage one another using the word of God.

Neng Yee fought for her family’s exit visa. Like planting seeds of faith, she trusted the Lord’s way of granting them their freedom, one day at a time.

Childlike Faith: I Believe Movie Review

childlike faith

I Believe: The Meaning of Childlike Faith

I Believe demonstrated how to have faith similar to a child. The main character is 9-year old Brian who has parents that are unbelievers of God and Christianity. In a scene where Brian’s father openly tells him that there is no God, he attempts to persuade the belief of the child.

We relate to this scene as most of us get influenced by the people around us. Influence is not synonymous with having a personal belief in something especially God. What our parents, relatives and friends believe may or may not sync with our own. We uphold our belief regardless of other people’s convictions.

Brian was assigned to write about pilgrims in his class. Aside from the assignment, his innocent curiosity led him to exert an extra effort to research further about Jesus, His teachings and His works. The teacher did remind him not to turn into a fanatic. Despite the comment, the smart boy pressed on to learn more about Jesus.

He uses different channels including the internet, buying a Bible and visiting the church for the first time. We too have a gut-feel experience like this. We persistently look for answers to satisfy our curiosity with facts that concerns our belief in God.

Brian’s act of prayer and an unwavering act of sharing his faith led to miracles that made him newsworthy. The boy’s faith in the power of prayer has convinced those lives he touched to believe including the US Marine and the woman who has a blind baby. In this modern age, there are many among us who do not believe in miracles anymore.

Only when we open our hearts do we get to see miracles happen in our lives. And by giving thanks with a grateful heart, we expand the width and the length of our faith in God.

Another scene worth mentioning was when Brian abducted by a mob. The leader asked the boy if God listens to him and his reply was it is the opposite, it is he who listens to Him. The intention was to strain the boy’s faith and destroy him from making the headlines. When the little girl was shot. Brian prayed for her quick recovery.

There will always be a set of bad people who are out there to inflict physical or psychological harm. They will be out to test where our faith lay. Sometimes, all it takes is a childlike faith to keep us grounded. Against whatever odds that come and passes through our course in life.

Watch ‘I Can Only Imagine’ to be inspired not to give up on your dreams

I can Only Imagine

I Can Only Imagine Movie Review 

‘I Can Only Imagine,’ may seem to be a statement that refers to situations which are hopeless to be attained but not in the case of this film. This film is a great source of inspiration and hope.

In today’s movie scene, song titles are always a step closer to becoming a movie title as well, making it the most overrated movie. While this film gives an interesting twist as it shows the spectrum of emotions that MercyMe vocalist, Bart Millard, faced in order to come up with the hit song.

The song, ‘I Can Only Imagine,’ is the highest grossing song of its time and even won triple-platinum status for its album. Amidst the superstar status lies a dark story behind. Growing up, the Millard household wasn’t the best household anyone can be in. A divorced family and a militantly violent dad is something Bart had to go through during his youth. As he reached his legal age, Bart moved out of their house leaving his father alone. He went on pursuing his music career while his dad was left off with a huge space to recompose himself and start writing a new chapter for his life.

As Bart continue on with his bandmates going around town inspiring people with his music. They encounter multiple people who may bring them to stardom, but unfortunately, this open door shut down at their faces once again, which haunted Bart deeply. With collections of dark memories from the past and the present rejection, the lead character went to embark on a journey to arrest his past resentments.

This opportunity became a perfect opportunity for crossroads to meet, Bart went home and was startled at the fact that his father took a 180-degree turn from his old self. This moment took the film to shift its gear to go onto an uphill ride as both characters finally learnt the art of forgiveness until Bart’s dad dies.

After the reconciliation leads to another uphill ride for Bart as they make a breakthrough in the music industry with the single, “I Can Only Imagine.”

More than just a happy ending, this Christian movie stresses that the hit song is not just the next good tune to listen to but rather is a fruit of persistence and their family overcoming relational barriers. It highlights the true value of bond within families. This movie definitely rings a bell in that area of people’s lives, as it carries out the fact that families may be as imperfect as it may be but it doesn’t give anyone a free pass to give up easily. Rather, the film challenges its audience to be in pursuit of constant forgiveness and maintain stronger love and bonds with their household members.

The story of Bart and his father may also happen in anyone’s lifetime and this testimony may be a vessel to make it closer to reality. More than just a drama-filled movie to overwhelm the sense of its viewers, it will surely uplift and leave a dent in the motivation system of each one.

Overall, this movie makes a counterflow to the usual themes of today’s Hollywood films. It moves away from the worldly themes of lust, violence, and revenge but rather promotes inclusivity and forbearance among people’s violators. Despite that, it is hugely relatable even to people with secular beliefs as it shows a real-life story rather than just another fictional tale.

War Room Movie Review: Using Prayer to Face Life’s Battles

The War Room

Using Prayer to Face Life’s Battles

The American Christian film War Room released in 2015 talks about the power of prayer and using prayer as the first armor of defense when we face our life’s battles. Tony and Elizabeth’s characters illustrated a modern family set-up. Both of them do well in their respective career and yet, there’s a brewing strain in their marriage relationship. They have presented issues about looking at each other’s faults resulting in verbal abuse. Indeed, it is easy to point against who is at fault instead of owning shortcomings. The frequent arguments between the couple showed us what ego can do to gradually destroy marriage.

As for Tony, he was enjoying the rewards that he was getting from his boss and it made him want for more. This desire led him to steal medicine samples that can translate into making more money for him. The scenario was relatable to anyone who gives more weight to the pleasure money brings. Temptation comes as an open invitation to those who are vulnerable to worldly desires.

The turning point in the story came into view when the realtor Elizabeth meets the elderly Miss Clara. While the process of selling her house was underway, they developed fondness for each other. Miss Clara began asking Elizabeth about her life issues and her belief in God. She introduced her to a special closet in the house that she calls War Room where she prayed for every aspect and stage in her life. She encouraged Elizabeth to pray for her marriage and she did. Marriage is a work in progress each day. Prayer comes as a form of guide, a protection for temptation and an avenue for forgiveness.

Another important scene in this film was when Tony decided to return the medicine samples to his boss after he got terminated from his job. At this point, he was no longer bound to return them. He knew that he can go to prison but then, he chose to do the right thing. This act showed us that when we commit a wrongdoing, we should stand up and face the consequences. Tony humbled himself before his bosses in the hopes of seeking forgiveness. The scene where his boss freed him from persecution manifested God’s grace. Tony turning into prayer opened his heart to repairing his brokenness.

In one way or another, we may have already come across with what it is when we feel like we hit rock bottom. It is under these circumstances where we turn for prayer in the hopes of divine intervention. What this film is teaching us is that we will come across situations that will test our faith and it is by prayer we get spiritual strength and guidance to do the right thing as we face our battles.
