Only God Can
The November issue of Simple Grace features the new inspirational movie Only God Can. Here, the film's Executive Producer, Linda Flannery shares her motivation for doing the film and the importance of creating Christian films about women.
Only God Can follows a group of close female friends as they must deal with the tragic loss of one of the women closest to them. Eventually they are forced to acknowledge that only with God's help can they become the women they long to be.
Linda is the Founder and CEO of Inspire Your Entertainment, the company behind the film. She has read many scripts in her career, but says that reading Only God Can for the first time was like a divine encounter.
"When I read the script, it immediately brought me back to a place where I had met God and how it allowed me to renew my journey with Him," Linda says. "For the first time in my life, I heard God speaking to me directly, saying ‘Do this film.’”
“Only God Can focuses on women more than other Christian movies before,” Linda explains. “It gives them more depth, more time to play out the stories. Many times we see these stories of the men playing out but we give women inspiration by showing the ‘real and raw’ of relationships on screen.”
Linda sees God’s handiwork all over the film and is thankful to be able to share this message of hope. "I know my works have to be guided by Him to be worthy of His calling. And this movie is one of them."
