'My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise
preserves my life.'
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, the only remaining Christian of the
family, has been watching his fathers unhealthy
lifestyle with great concern. Along with his best
friend Maggie, Steven works to reach his father in
anyway 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
Standing Firm is a story of suffering, God's purpose
in it, and being joyful despite of it.
The worse this planet becomes, the more people ask
that same old question... "If God Really Loves
Me...Then Why Do I Suffer?"
It's the basis for all kinds of attacks against the
God of the Bible and His teachings. It's even used to
attack the evidence of His existance and the
legitimacy of the Christian faith.
The response typically given to "Do You Believe in
God?," is almost always the same. If there is a God
and he loves me then he wouldn't do that, he wouldn't
cause this, he wouldn't allow this to happen, and on
it goes. This film aims to answer those questions and
counteract that kind of thinking.
- Is there a purpose in my suffering?
- Is God truly Sovereign?
- Is there a purpose in all things, even my death or
- Why do these things happen to me!?
