If you are wondering if God really love and care about you, if you are wondering how he works, and how come he’s look at you going through pain, then you definitely need to watch this inspirational movie, The Shack. The Shack centers on Mackenzie Phillips, who after suffering a family tragedy spirals into a deep depression that causes him to question his innermost beliefs in God. Facing a crisis of faith, he receives a mysterious letter, which led him to an abandoned shack in the Oregon wilderness. Despite his doubts, Mackenzie journeys to the shack and encounters three strangers led by a woman named Papa by falling into a deep trans. Through this meeting, Mack finds important truths that transformed his understanding and perspective of his tragedy and changed his life forever.
Before i proceed with my review of The Shack i will like to ask you this question: if someone you extremely love like a daughter or son is killed by a cold murderer, and you eventually meet the murder, will you forgive the murderer and not take judgement into your hands?
Boom! Sorry, no real time review for this movie, at first i wanted to pick some unrealistic concept in the movie where Missy (Mack’s daughter) was kidnapped, but on the long-run i changed my mind, as the movie excellently passed its message. Here is what i learnt in the movie:
1, God extremely care about us more than anything in this world and he doesn’t want anyone to be lost.
2, God orchestrating good from evil does not mean he orchestrated the evil but the devil did.
3, Never judge anyone, always leave judgement for God
4, Learn to forgive quickly and easily, and also learn to ask for forgiveness quickly, as forgiving someone does not mean the person is going away with what he/she did, but its just letting go of their throat, as they will pay for deed someway or somehow. The act of unforgiveness sinks the mind in deep sorrow, heavy weight, regrets and blames. Let go the past easily and love easily.
5, Trust God with the whole of your heart, as all he want from you is to establish a relationship with you, converse with you and do everything together, he is not interested in slaves or people who will be forced to like him, he want genuine hearts.
6, It’s always better when you do it with God, as with God nothing is impossible and when you encounter God, your life will change for the best forever.
7, Jesus (son), God (father) and holy spirit are all one body operating in trio.
Overall, The Shacks is a great cool inspirational movie, that you will learn so much from. I challenge you to watch the movie and come thank me later.
