Your Glorious Name.....

Blessed be Your name
In the land that is plentiful
Where your streams of abundance flow
Blessed be your name

Blessed be Your name
When I'm found in the desert place
Though I walk through the wilderness
Blessed Be Your name

Every blessing you pour out
I'll turn back to praise
When the darkness closes in
Still I will say

Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your name
Blessed be the name of the Lord
Blessed be Your glorious name

Blessed be Your name
When the sun's shining down on me
When the world's 'all as it should be'
Blessed be Your name

Blessed be Your name
On the road marked with suffering
Though there's pain in the offering
Blessed be Your name

God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords
-1 Timothy 6:15

How sweet the Sound....

Well, My mother, Allyson and I went to see Amazing Grace , Saturday afternoon. I was very impressed, had a enjoyable time and actually felt like I watched a movie that was worth the admission price!

This biographical movie of William Wilberforce and his fight to end the British slave trade was very well put together and stuck to the true facts. The acting was wonderful and I loved the way that the movie producers really examined the character of William Wilberforce.

His work in the British parliament and the great influence he had really shows the importance of Christians being involved in politics. It took this man many years to finally pass his bill, but he persevered....definitely by the grace of God.

The movie didn't focus too much on his relationship with Christ and I felt that could have expounded on that more and that could have explained some of his actions. Mr. Wilberforce was a strong believer in Jesus Christ and he put that before all his political work.

This movie was a beautiful story of how God works in government and also how He and only He, can forgive us.
Some of my favorite parts of the movie were the dialogues between Wilberforce and John Newton. Before this movie I had no idea the influence that John Newton had on Wilberforce. It was really wonderful to see how the song Amazing Grace had a strong impact on Wilberforce.

This movie really deserves more than my sad go and see it! It's so important that we support these types of movies! I was definitely blessed and will probably go see it again. :c) If you go see it, let me know what you think of it.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
