Lifelines.
This is one of my best friends’ babies. In her hands is a custom order from someone who’s friend lost her son to suicide last week. A son who was this age once. A son who was fiercely loved and valued and squeezed tight. A son who will always be their baby. My heart cannot fathom the overwhelming grief. Our only hope? To lift our eyes to the One who is our help in every season and situation. Jesus, come quickly.
It seems the Lord is teaching me a deeper (more experiential) meaning of what Paul talks about when he describes servants of God as “sorrowful, yet always rejoicing” (2 Corinthians 6:10a). • You see, there is so much good happening. So much joy, provision, and depth of community. So many doors opening. So many opportunities to minister and be ministered to. So much love and humility and grace and kindness and care that it has made me—quite literally—cry into a plate of chicken and waffles from the mercy of it all. • These scattered beams can only be explained by the Lord, who is dropping joy bombs and grace explosions all around. • But it’s not all chicken and waffles. • (Link to blog post in profile ❤️)
“All in all, it was a never-to-be forgotten summer—one of those summers which comes seldom into any life, but leave a rich heritage of beautiful memories in their going—one of those summers which, in a fortunate combination of delightful weather, delightful friends, and delightful doings, come as near to perfection as anything can come in this world.” -L.M. Montgomery

Movie Review: King’s Faith

Redemption. Reconciliation. Real life.

king's faithA great movie has all three components and King’s Faith is no exception. This movie, in selected theaters April 26, is beautifully inspiring and packs a story that can change lives.

Filled with life-giving truth and hope for the hardest of hearts, King’s Faith was a breath of fresh air in a time where Christian movies are made with good intentions but executed with cheesy story lines and less than desirable acting.

OFFICIAL TEASER: When eighteen-year-old Brendan King (Crawford Wilson) attempts to leave his turbulent gang life behind him, his past continues to threaten his new-found faith, family, and future.

The film is not yet rated  but I’m guessing it will be a PG-13 rating due to some violence and drug references. After watching a private screening of the film, I would take my True Beauty girls to see it (and probably will) and they are middle and high school age with one very mature 10 year old. I believe this movie, if God so graciously allows, can  impact their souls.

Though aimed at teenagers, this movie can minister to everyone for no other reason than because the Gospel is for everyone.

Written, produced and directed by Nicholas Dibella in Rochester, NY., King’s Faith contains solid examples of discipleship, the consequences of sin, rewards for honesty, integrity and character, and the cost of following Jesus. It also profoundly displays God’s power in changing a life but the battle that remains between the old life of flesh versus new life in Christ.

This movie preaches that the shame of the past does not have to define, entrap or enslave you because it was for freedom Christ has set you free. Through Jesus’ atoning work on the cross and triumph over sin and the grave, you can be made righteous and released from the captivity of the Enemy and equipped to fight the spiritual forces of evil that are rampant in this world.

I recommend this movie. Demand it at your theater by clicking on the image below.
