My husband and I watched another great movie this weekend. I will admit it wasn't the best acting, but it was the kind of movie that captures your heart and really makes you think about the difference that one person can make.
"Letters to God" is based on a true story. It is centered around a boy named Tyler who has terminal cancer. Even though Tyler is sick and scared, he has total and utter dependence on God, with a faith that is unshakable. To him, God is his friend, his teacher and so much more. His prayers take the form of letters. These letters that he puts into the mail everyday without hesitation.
Tyler's kindness and faith touches everyone that he meets, even ones who aren't so kind to him. In particular his letters help to transform the life of a postman who is temporarily taking over his route.
I won't ruin the ending for you. I loved this movie. Some parts were a little cheesy. But I must say you will need a box of tissue or two. This one child's faith was able to move mountains. If only we could have so much faith, so much total dependence on God.
What would happen if our prayers took the form of letters to God? Who would they reach and how many lives would be touched?
I recommend this movie to anyone, you will be changed.
1 Corinthians 13:13 (NIV) 13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
