The Final Inquiry Movie

I saw this movie advertised on my daily devotional. On the trailer, it says it's coming out this April on DVD. It sounds like it would be interesting to watch. Who is Monica Cruz? Is she Penelope Cruz's relative (sister)? At first, I thought Monica was Penelope because she looks so much like her.

I was reading through one of my devotionals online and came across a well known verse that seems to hit the nail right on my head. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones." Proverbs 3:5-8 You know with all that's been going on in my life. With Mom's illness, parenthood, housewife duties, and every day hussle and bussle. At times, it's tough to stay sane and pretty much Christ like. Yes, I've failed God many times. Here's a newsflash, it's not my first nor will it be my last. I have said things and handled situations now that I look back at it, I could have handled it differently. Have you ever been in that situation where you think, at the time, you thought you did what was best and it turned out not the best after all? Now I see, I was looking through my own eyes and understanding. I let other peoples' opinions and heavy hearts influence my judgment on situations and people. Presumptions and attitudes planted seeds of doubt and pain in my heart. The devil has had a blast with me these past several months. Since then, I've asked God's forgiveness and forgiveness from the people whom I've been upset with, including myself. But isn't it all part of living. You live and learn. Right? This verse speaks to me ~ don't let Satan plant seeds of doubt about yourself and your relationships. Trust that God will bring you through any situation even though at times it may look grim and not at all the direction you would see it. I hope this makes sense to some of you because of the many different negative experiences I've encountered this past year. I just thank God for speaking to me and guiding me one verse at a time. Isn't it great that you can always go to Him? He's never too busy for you and most important is that He completely understands what you are going through.
