“My comfort in my suffering is this: your promise preserves my life.” (Psalm 119:50)
Dave, a widower, is working himself to death. Late Nights doing paperwork and running on fumes is the norm. Bills are piling by the week, and foreclosure looms on the horizon. Blaming God for his wife’s death, he ends his relationship with the church. His son, Steven, has been watching with great concern. Along with his grandpa and best friend Maggie, Steven works to reach his father in any way he can. Despite his grieving, Dave begins to move in the right direction seeking an answer to the question that has been haunting him since his wife’s death…Why?
This is a powerful story of one man’s struggle in his life and his journey to find the power of faith through God’s love after his wife’s death. Dave not only walks away from the church and God but also adds to the frustration of his son Steven as he watches his father’s actions.The film displays how we cannot fix others around us when it comes to faith, and that each person can only make decisions for themselves when it comes to their beliefs in God. When someone falls by the wayside, the only thing a person can do is pray and trust that God will help that person through their struggles. It is a moving story about faith, love and the power of prayer along with the knowledge that God has a plan for us even though we don’t always understand why things happen the way they do.
