Filmmaking…And So It Begins
“…for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.” ~Matthew 17:20
It has been almost 3 months since the Lord placed the idea of the script Woman At The Well on my heart and since then He has been moving and shaking in ways that I can’t understand or explain. The writing is all Him, the funding is all Him, the organization of it all…Yep…ALL THE LORD.
I remember standing in the doorway of our back yard the day I heard the Lord speak over me that making this script into a film is what I was supposed to do, and not just a fun hobby project but to actually DO IT, to actually start moving forward towards my dreams of being an actual filmmaker.
I was letting the dogs outside and just stopped. I could see clear as day the Hollywood mountain right in front of me and I just asked, “Lord, how the heck am I supposed to climb this mountain?” And that still small voice inside said, “you aren’t going to climb it, you’re going to move it.” I lost it. I still get chills when I think of that moment. That was the moment I knew that I was stepping into my calling.
From there even more amazing God moments occurred, God moments that can only be explained as miracles. I asked for $2000 in funding and that was what I got. I don’t even know if that number is right but I do know that the Lord knows exactly what I need, and if we need more He will provide. And it wasn’t just that He provided it but that it was given to me within a week of me asking for it initially. It was God moving, showing me that I am doing the right thing in stepping out into this GREAT UNKNOWN and trusting that He will lead the way as I stumble in the darkness.
I am not sure why I have been blessed with this calling on my life and I don’t know why He has trusted me with this gift but I DO know that I am going to move forward in this, one step at a time and work towards His goal of sharing His message with the world through film.
