Black Widow

We journey back to where it all started for Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow. She has to face an evil she thought she rid the world of, and deal with past broken relationships. We ‘meet’ the ‘family’ she never speaks about. Besides all the deep emo stuff, this movie is packed with action from start to finish.

Relationships are tough. Facing issues with those that are your nearest and dearest is even tougher. But this movie reminded me that we simply can’t live our lives alone. God made us to be in community and surrounded by family – whatever that may look like.

Read Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 (https://bit.ly/3zMwva8)

The Tomorrow War

I’m not usually a fan of scifi movies – but if you’re into alien type things, The Tomorrow War’s storyline is not that bad. It also falls into the time travel category, and although some scenes are a bit farfetched, it made me think.

What if someone from the future came and told us exactly what would happen in the next 30 years?

Well – guess what? We know the author and creator of time. We don’t always need to know what’s going to happen, BUT we can trust God, the One who literally holds our future in His hands.

Mark 13:32 (https://bit.ly/3BpR0v5)

Godzilla vs Kong

Godzilla returns and is causing chaos – Kong is taken out of containment. This obviously leads to an epic battle between these titans. But something else is going on behind the scenes. Godzilla and Kong figure out they need to work together and fight against the common threat.

Romans 15:5(https://bit.ly/3ek0I8m)

This verse basically speaks about being on the same page with each other. Godzilla and Kong needed each other. It’s a super chaotic time in our country right now, we need each other more than ever. Let’s trust and rely on God to help us. Let’s pray for unity, and for peace (harmony) in our beautiful land.

Skater Girl

Prerna lives in rural India and discovers the amazingness of skateboarding, with the help of a visitor to her village. It changes the way she sees and thinks about herself. She faces a rough time about it though (especially from her father) and has to fight her way to be able to compete in the local skateboarding competition.

Jesus is all about changing our perspective, and the way we think about ourselves. The more time we spend reading His word (the Bible), and getting to know Jesus – we will find our identity and purpose.

Romans 12:2 (https://bit.ly/2ILbmae)
