“When I was growin’ up, people didn’t really talk about miracles. I’m not sure I understood what they were or if I believed in them. A miracle is defined as something not explicable by natural or scientific laws. But then how do you explain it? How does it happen? Who or what is behind it?”
Miracles from Heaven was a movie that I didn’t really want to watch, but my parents were going to watch it so I did too. It was more than I expected and it hit me in a way I never thought it would.
The movie is about a ten year old girl who is sick and they didn’t know how badly until her mom pushed and pushed the doctors to look for the answer. She is in constant pain and has to be away from her dad and sisters in order to get help. Her mom struggles through the journey with her because she wants her to get better, but she doesn’t know how to help other than showing up at a doctor’s office with her big purse.
The movie is all about miracles and how we need to celebrate miracles.
Christy, the mom, loses her faith along the way. She was able to speak out about this near the end of the movie.
“I lost my faith. Because of that, I didn’t see what was all around me. Albert Einstein said there are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle and the other is as though everything is a miracle. I’m the first to tell you I wasn’t living my life as though everything is a miracle. I missed a lot. Miracles are everywhere. Miracles are God. And God is forgiveness.”
“…after everything I’ve been through, I’ve realized I’m not alone. And whatever you may be going through, I am here to tell you, you are not alone. Miracles are God’s way of letting us know he’s here.”
We may think that we are alone in this world of billions, but we are never alone. God is always by our side and He will never leave us. I recommend this movie for anyone. It is funny and heartfelt. I believe everyone can learn from this movie in some way.
