Facing the Giants.
Facing the Giants is a christian film based about Foot ball.
Here is the synopsis on the film from https://www.facingthegiants.com/dvdmovie.php
After six consecutive losing seasons, high school football coach Grant Taylor believes things can’t get any worse. He’s wrong.
After his best player transfers and his Eagles lose to the worst team
in the conference, Grant discovers a group of fathers—and one of his
coaches—is plotting to have him sacked.
Barely making ends meet as it is and unable to start a family with
his wife, who longs to be a mother, Grant Taylor has no help in sight,
With fear and failure seemingly defeating him at life’s every turn,
the downtrodden coach and husband turns to God in broken desperation.
Trusting that God can somehow do the impossible, Coach Taylor and his
Shiloh Christian Eagles soon discover how faith plays out on the field
… and off.
This second movie from Sherwood Pictures was a surprise theatrical
hit, the best-selling resource in Christian stores in 2007, and has been
shown in thousands of churches worldwide. – See more at: http://providentfilms.org/film/facing-the-giants#movie-events
This story shows what can happen when you put your trust in God, not just in football, but in life. How things can be coming apart, yet as soon as you begin letting go and trusting in God all things beocme possible.
Here are a few of my favorite quotes from the Movie “I heard a story of two farmers praying to God for rain to come. Both prayed but only one prepared the land. Who do you think trusted God more to send the rain? Well, in God’s word He said 365 different times, “Do not fear.” Now if He says it that many times, you know He’s serious about it, don’t ya?”
“The more I read this book, the more I realize that life’s not about us. We’re not here to get glory, make money, and die. The Bible says that God put us here for Him.”
It is a must watch.
Awesome for sports fan, awesome for followers.
