I was recently given the opportunity to review the movie This Is Our Time.
About This Is Our Time
The movie tells the interwoven stories of Luke (T.J. Dalrymple) and Alé (Erin Bethea), who marry right after school and move to India to serve as missionaries for Embrace A Village, a ministry that cares for those afflicted with leprosy and their families; aspiring financier Catherine (Kate Cobb), who joins a prestigious financial institution determined to make an impact on corporate America; Ryder (Matthew Florida), who lands an impressive job in social media and can’t wait to use the powerful medium for a greater good; and Ethan (Shawn-Caulin Young,) seemingly the odd man out, who struggles to find his God-given-purpose and feels sidelined by God.
“What they all come to learn is that it never really was their time,” Arnold said. “It always was, always is, God’s time.”
What did I think about the movie?
I really like it! A lot! The message was good and challenging. It has me thinking about so many things like who am I meant to be and am I willing to continue following God even when things don't make sense? Am I seeking Him in those times or trying to figure it out on my own? This movie gripped me with it's opening words...
"So as this journey comes to an end and you begin your next, know that you were meant for greatness and for good. It won't be easy and certainly not quick. It may take your entire life to fulfill what it is you were meant to do... but every step will put you closer, every experience will prepare you for the next, every failure will lead you to your success. You will be tested in ways you can't imagine but I have confidence that you will prevail, you will see your dreams come to fruition and that you will leave your mark, your legacy, on this world."
Maybe I loved it because it was so timely for me. Or maybe I loved it simply because it's just a good movie that is worth loving.
