Beauty and the Beast

The most obvious lesson we can learn from beauty and the beast is about not judging based on outward appearances. Like the singing teapot says, it’s a tale as old as time. What I love about the new remake of the classic fairy tale is Belle’s courage. She finds herself in circumstances beyond her control, facing a fear she cannot understand, and still she is brave, honest and true to herself.

Psalm 56:3 ( tells us that when we face uncertainty, we should put our trust in God, and not be afraid. When we trust God, that is where we find our courage.



“Forrest Gump”

“Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” – Forrest Gump
The movie shows us that life is full of uncertainty and wonder.

The main character has a special sense of hope and innocence in the way he jumps into life without any doubt. I love it – to be around people who are always excited about life, it always gets me excited and positive too!

But it’s not easy to be positive and excited about life when things are difficult.
Isaiah 40:31 ( shows us that we find new strength when we trust the Lord.


Count on me.

“You can count on me like 1, 2, 3. I’ll be there.” is the line that starts the chorus of “Count on me” by Bruno Mars. This song speaks of how the songwriter is someone the listener can count on. Sound familiar?

Psalm 34:6 says, “In my desperation I prayed, and the Lord listened; He saved me from all my troubles,” ( The same way David could count on God when things were hectic, we can count on God today. God is still the same reliable friend and father that He was then, and He will always be that friend till the very end.


Another in the fire.

The song “Another in the fire” by Hillsong United, is about the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego who were thrown into a fire but lived – Daniel 3:4-27 (

You might be in a situation that feels as if it’s a fire burning you alive, but God never forgets about us when things get tough. He doesn’t promise that there’ll never be fires but He does promise to stick with us through it like He did with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. All He wants us to do is trust that He is and will always be there for us.
