Moved by the Movie – Gifted Hands

By now you know I’m a BIG fan of Ephesians 3:20 and this movie demonstrates it beautifully. Gifted Hands is the movie and it is a gift. It’s the true story of Ben Carson becoming more than anyone dared to dream.  It’s a story that will surely inspire you to believe your life can be more than you have planned.

Are you familiar with Gary Smalley and John Trent’s book, The Blessing? This movie demonstrates the act of blessing your child. With a mother speaking life into him, he overcame a life of poverty and poor grades to become a neurosurgeon. And not just any neurosurgeon. He was the first to separate twins conjoined at the brain.

I can’t recommend this movie enough. It moved me, changed me.  God used Gifted Hands to show Himself to me in the life of Ben Carson and Ben’s mom. Ephesians 3:20 came to life for me.

“All glory to Him who is able through His mighty power at work within us

to accomplish infinitely more than we can ask or think.

P.S. God was not left out of the movie!

Have you seen the movie yet? What was your take home? What movie, book, life story inspires you to believe in God’s power at work in us?

About Jennifer O. White

I'm a simple wife who has discovered God's amazing gift of prayer. Here at Prayerfully Speaking I share my journey of unwrapping this gift. God invites us to ask Him, but His enemy works diligently to keep that from happening. I hope to offer you encouragement to believe God is ready to pour more into your life than you've ever imaged.
