I sit here wondering how in the world am I going to raise the funds for our first full feature. Believe me, I have spent the last few years studying, reading books, watching videos, researching websites, blogs and more. I have built a pretty cool fundraising campaign based on expert advice and help as well. But still, the funding as not happened…yet!
I sit here and stare at this picture. It is so bright it causes me to see spots as if I was back on the battlefield in person, taking it again. But with the picture, I can see the detail of the sun and how the fire dances off the edges of the sun and how it, live lava, the reflection of sunlight spills over the side of the hills and tree tops. Then I think, the same God who created this beyond description sun, is the same God who is with me now. What do I have to be concerned about or worried about? Just because I cannot yet physically see our funding, I can see it, touch it and feel it by faith. God can do exceedingly abundantly above all that I can even ask or think. He has already given me the “yes” to make this film series. So what’s the problem? Well, there are no problems on God’s side of things. If I see the lack of the manifestation of the funds a problem, then the problem lies with me. God’s timing is perfect.
One thing I will not do is create a negative environment. I could get all bent out of shape and discouraged because I want to get things moving. But just like those who will watch the film, most won’t know what went on behind the scenes and what it took to produce such an exciting and successful film series. It’s the same way with God. I don’t know all that He is working on and doing for us to be funded behind the scenes. Just because I can’t see it, doesn’t mean He isn’t doing something amazing. I have to trust Him and continue to believe. Why? Because I KNOW He is faithful. His timing cannot be anything less than perfect. He will do what He has promised. I will continue to thank Him. I will continue to do all that I am supposed to do. I won’t let go. I won’t give up and I certainly won’t quit!!!
