Even Though I’m Furious with You, I Still Love You: War Room (2015)

Most Romantic Moment #6

war-room

So this is a Christian film that came out last year and did pretty well for a low budget (compared to hollywood) film.

Elizabeth Jordan is a successful realtor, married to a handsome, prosperous pharmaceutical sales rep, Tony. The two live in a beautiful home with their ten-year-old daughter. On the outside things look great, but the two have been having a lot of problems.

Tony and Elizabeth haven’t communicated in a long time, their conversations being fights more than anything else. Tony has been gone a lot, wanting to be in complete control of “his not ours” money, and is even contemplating having an affair. Elizabeth is unhappy with their relationship, but doesn’t know what to do as every battle makes her feel worse.

I don't know what to do

One day she meets with a client, Miss Clara, and is shown something surprising; her war room (prayer closet.) Miss Clara encourages her to pray for her family and prepare herself for the real enemy, Satan.

At first Elizabeth is hesitant, but as things seem to be getting worse she decides to try her hand at offense.

Most Romantic Moment: Pissed off But Praying

So the romantic moment I’ve choosen comes at the middle of the film. Elizabeth has tried to create a war room of her own, but hasn’t been able to focus on prayer.

But this time she has decided that she is really going to hunker down. She cleaned out her closet so there is nothing to distract her, posted on the walls her prayers…and then she gets a text from a friend that they saw Tony out with another woman.

Noooooooooo!!!!!!!

Noooooooooo!!!!!!!

But instead of becoming angry, thinking about getting a divorce, calling her husband up to yell at him, burning his clothes, leaving the house, screaming, etc. She decides to sit down and pray.

Say What

Yes, she is able to stop any destructive behavior she could have done and pray for her husband. Pray for their marriage. Pray for protection, for a renewal, for blessing, that he will do the right thing, that she will do the right thing…etc.

Wow

Wow

Now we know she has been furious with her husband for the way he had been behaving. And although she doesn’t know if he has been having an affair she has been suspecting that he might be messing around for a while now. So we know she is angry

But instead of doing something with that anger that she might regret or could further fracture their marriage; she pauses and decides to pray for her husband character. You really have to love someone to do that.

Walkin’ Round

I don’t have a car, so I’m the type of girl who will walk around all over the place. No matter how far it is, if there is a sidewalk that leads to it; off I will go. If there is no sidewalk, than I usually try to find a friend to take me. 😉

One thing that I hate about walking around, and ALWAYS happens to me, is that guys will always shout stupid things at me or honk their horns. Let me just say that girls DO NOT find that attractive or fun. We find it icky.

ew! Gross Yuck

So the other day I’m out walking to work, I pass some guys and they do the standard yelling weird things they think are cute/funny but are LAME!

I keep walking along, when this car pulls up to me. It’s kind of freaky so I start walking faster.

The person in the car starts following me and yelling Hey! Hey! Now I’m no longer scared but pissed. Who is this jerk? Why are they following me like this. I turn around to yell at them

Don’t mess with me!

When I turn to look and see that it is my friend Emily.

She had seen me walking and wanted to offer me a ride since we work together. Talk about embarrassing!

I just told her the truth about how I was so used to stupid guys yelling dumb stuff that I was totally ignoring her.
