“I Am Gabriel” DVD review & giveaway

My Thoughts-
“I Am… Gabriel” is a movie about a broken town that is in need of a lot of help. Starting a from the loss of a child, to the lack of rain, foreclosures and hostility towards God. A boy named Gabriel is sent to the town by God. Through prayer he shows what God can do. There is finally rain, a girl dies and comes back to life, a man dies after being sick for so long, a blind girl can see. The people of this town think it’s Gabriel that is doing it and ask him who he really is. “I’m just a boy” was his reply. He tells them that he is not the one bringing these good things that it is God.
He also carried around this him a mat. When asked about it he tells this it’s his constant reminder to get down on his knees and pray. The local sewing group gets to making more mats for everyone in town. They see that this town needs to be praying, trusting in God to help them.

From the opening of the movie (which includes my new favorite song, “Streets of Broken Promises” sung by Jenna Vitalone) to the ending, I was crying. This movie really touched my heart and really got me looking deeper into my own prayer life and how it effects my life around me. After watching the movie I spent a long time with God. I’ve been distant from Him, I’ve pushed Him away. I’ve been blaming Him for all the bad things going on around me. But I haven’t been talking with Him. I prayed for forgiveness on my lack of faith, I let Him know my heart, I prayed for those around me. I never felt so close to God.

Although this movie may not seem realistic, it can be. God can do anything, we need to have faith and we need to come to Him in prayer. We sometimes might not get the answer we’re wanting but we will get the answer we are needing.

*Psalms 37:4
“Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.”
Matthew 7:7-12
“7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
9 “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? 10 Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 11 If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! 12 So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets.”

I really believe every church should have a copy or more of this in their library. I feel blessed to have gotten to review this movie. It will be one I will be watching with my family often. I also hope they will release a soundtrack to this movie. The music is amazing.
I really believe everyone should see this movie, so much so that I am buying a copy and giving it to one of my readers!
