I have not told enough people about this movie-War Room. Hands down one of the best life-changing movies out there. God really spoke to me while watching this. So much so, I got out my bible, highlighted verses I saw during the movie. And Ms. Clara is my favorite in the movie. I want a Ms. Clara in my life and I want to be a Ms. Clara in someone’s life.
I don’t know about those of you who saw the movie but I personally love the scene where she walks through the house and kicks Satan out of her home and life. That was the life changing moment for me. My husband does this every morning before we ever get out of bed “I pray the blood of Jesus over my home and my family. Satan you have no place in our lives or the lives of our children, family members and loved ones. You need to flee”. I use to giggle when he did it but I realize now as I look back on my journal that it made a difference. There were days when we barely spoke to each other much less pray together and as noted in my journal those were the hardest. Lee had not banned Satan from our home and our lives like he had done in the past. Prayer works and God gave us the authority to remove Satan from our lives. This was one of my biggest faithbuilders……..
Lee and I are barely married six months and the struggle was real for us! I was on the brink of divorce in our first 90 days of marriage because I was too focused on what my husband wasn’t doing, my lack of a prayer life and my ideology of what marriage should be that I overlooked all he was doing. God shook me up and woke me up. It took totaling a car and almost going over a bridge to scare me straight but sometimes God has to do that.
Shortly after seeing this movie War Room, I took a trip to Lifeway. I didn’t know what I needed but I knew I needed something then I came across Fervent and The Battle Plan for Prayer. I read them daily! Whether deep in your walk with the LORD or trying to figure out this prayer thing, both books are much needed additions to your library.
I still do not have my “war room” setup but I do know my prayer life is HOT! I have found my self saying “God, help me” “LORD, guide me” and just in constant communication with the LORD more often everyday. I am in the beginning phases of getting my Momspace/War Room recreated in our new home. I have created a few things to go in there like this cross made from the left over brooches from our wedding:
It’s the focal piece in my quiet space that is just for me.
And I also made this one thinking I would use it in my new space but it ended up in the bathroom as a decoration on a bare wall in there. I have a different way I want to go with my focal point wall 🙂
However until it all comes together, I have my journal and I have my appointment with the LORD everyday. I know my marriage is much stronger, my children are happier and good things are happening all around us because of my prayer life. For that, I am truly blessed!
God bless and have a good night!
