THE CROODS: A NEW AGE

Another epic, hilarious, adventure with the Croods! They need a safer place to live, which they find, but they have to live with the Bettermans… ugh. They don’t get along at first because of their differences but they learn to work together, accept each other’s differences, lean on each other, and become friends.

I love what Paul wrote about togetherness in 1 Corinthians 12:1-27 (https://bit.ly/3a5jnBL). He’s basically highlighting how we are all different, but how all those differences are actually needed, and when put together we form the body, the people, the family, the church of Christ.

How can we be more accepting of each other’s differences?

MULAN

She had to hide who she really was in order to save her father from having to fight in battle. But you also realise that she didn’t want to be that girly girl, she wanted to be a warrior. By the end of the movie, after facing a lot, she’s braver, bolder and more courageous than ever.

Some of us go through more challenges in life than others but the purpose of the challenge is the same = GROWTH. God wants us living brave, bold, and courageous lives for Him. He wants us to persevere and push through – all the while relying on Him fully.

WW84

This sequel to Wonder Woman is a whole lot of amazingness and more. The way this movie was filmed, the fashion, the action, the storyline.

So here in 1984 we see Diana grapple with calling, purpose, and truth versus a lie. The price is too high to continue to live a lie and she has to make a choice. Will she choose truth?

When something is true, nothing can stand against it. Truth sets us free from the lies the enemy tries to get us to believe.

Read John 14:6 (https://bit.ly/2jc8mYM) and John 8:32 (https://bit.ly/2LKxowg).

When we believe and accept the truth of Jesus, we will begin to walk in freedom.

ENOLA HOLMES

What an adventure – narrated by the main character, Enola Holmes herself – the teenage sister of the great Sherlock Holmes. Her mother disappears and she sets out in search of her. She had a plan but as we watch we see that she needs to adjust her plans a few times. Along the way she also finds herself, finds what she wants to do with her life, and finds freedom.

In life we can plan, then we’ll need to adjust those plans as we grow and learn. Most importantly, when we find out who we are in Christ and why He created us, that’s when we truly start living in freedom.
