CONGRATULATIONS TO WINNER - KEN OHL
As I sat down to watch this DVD today in my comfortable chair in my comfortable house, I was only a few minutes into the movie when I received a text from my husband that explosions had rocked the Boston Marathon. I paused the DVD for a moment and turned on the news. Not wanting to make assumptions, the newsman said there wasn't any real information available yet, so rather than immerse myself in the media reports, I turned back to watch This Is Our Time. It's the story about five newly graduated college students who are friends that have a strong faith. They have a desire to seize God's calling in their lives and make a difference in the world.
Just like in reality, a horrible death happens in the movie that challenges their faith and belief in a loving God. Struggling to find meaning and purpose in awful events and grappling with moving on in the face of those events, I imagined those in Boston dealing with the same kinds of emotions and feelings. The movie made me laugh and cry, gave me inspiration, and reassured me that even in our time, this is really God's time and God's purpose. We each are created for Him and by Him. Although we sometimes don't understand why things happen, it's important to stay obedient to His word and be the light for others.
It's a wonderful story of how powerful love is, even in the face of tragedy. I pray for those in Boston today and those around the world who are hurting in many ways. I pray each of us discovers who we are to be for His purpose. This a wonderful story and I'd love to share this movie with you! You can enter below to win a DVD copy of This Is Our Time.
