“You’re just some happy clappy Christian with no clue.”
Murphy’s law is an adage or epigram that is typically stated as: “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong” And in this movie this would definitely be the storyline for Daniel Rainwater. A modern day Job.
Trust tells the story of Daniel Rainwater (Keith Austring), an average guy whose life is falling apart. His marriage to Sarah begins to crumble when he loses his job. Thinking life couldn’t get any worse—it does. In his bitterness towards God, during this downwards spiral, Daniel must learn to trust God again before he loses everything. Sarah (Lisa Carey), who blames him entirely for their situation; starts to believe their marriage is insoluble, after confessing to having an affair. Teetering on the edge of divorce paperwork and cringing at the thought of Daniel never being able to forgive her—she is at the crossroads of her life.
But, there is also a subplot that consists of a cup, that is woven throughout the film. This reminder cup of sacrifice from which Jesus drank in the Garden of Gethsemane. (Matthew 26:39) It is inevitable that we all drink from that cup. When dealing with unbelievable situations that life sometimes hands us; we have to choose between what is right and what is easy.
Meanwhile, their children Lea (Chelsea Bennett) and Jonah (Lachlan Smith) are going through their own personal issues. The eldest, Lea having to learn to forgive herself and her parents by letting go of hurt and hostility. As Jonah must learn to face his own fears. Trust begs the eternal question: ‘How do we trust God, when life is falling apart?’ No matter where you are in difficult circumstances; the common thread and narrative, ‘Never give up on hope for it is all a part of God’s plan.’ There are a lot of movies out there named Trust, but this is the one everyone definitely needs to see. If you are a believer this movie will really make you check your level of faith.
We give Trust
