Shorter newsletter this time around (PTL, right?). But I had to take a minute to do some praising. I quit my job in May, 2015 (after much careful prayer and deliberation, I’ll note) to make time to write the script, trusting God to provide month by month. Welp, I just took a job in LA so starting March 1 I’ll be back in the land of regular paychecks. But I wanted to share that from May 2015 – Feb 2016, God provided just enough income every month and I was never late on a bill.
Does this mean I was never stressed? Nope. That it was easy? No. Did I get tired of eating lentils? YES. But every time I would feel the temptation to stay up late at night frantically trawling Craigslist for work, God would put this question to me: “Are you doing this from faith or fear?” So I would stop right there and wait. And something would always come in. I didn’t have to go scrounging for work because the work came to me.
Between those gigs and your generous help, I made it!! The script is ready and Marilyn can now take it and run with it.
God is faithful.
For the next few months it will be more market research, polishing the script, helping Marilyn with the budget, etc. I know it will continue to be a challenge to make time to push the movie forward while working another job, so please pray for me. Your charitable contributions from this point on will pay for professional help with the market research, business plan, & box office projections. If you feel led to donate you can do so at www.puremovie.org.
Praising God for his faithful provision and thanking you for your prayers, encouragement, and support!!
“Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you’ll recover your life. I’ll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me – watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.”
Matthew 11:28 – 30 MSG
