Happy Monday peeps! So, last night I watched the movie Breakthrough and it was sooooo good! (I only cried like 5 times! 🤣) If you haven’t seen it, it’s based on a true story about a couple’s adopted son who falls through the ice on a frozen lake and is trapped underwater for 15+ minutes. He’s rescued and barely alive with responders and doctors saying there’s no hope, but his mom (played by Chrissy Metz) prays hard and keeps her faith, and God takes care of the rest. You need to see it…
And, oddly enough, the son falls through the ice on MLK day. What a “coincidence!”
I love the song by Chrissy Metz that they used for this movie, and it serves as a great reminder that God is always there, through whatever we go through. It’s easy to feel alone. It’s easy to think your problems are bigger than anything else in the world… but we have a God who’s always there, who can take whatever problems we think we have (big or small) and carry them away as if they were never there. And we’re blessed with people in our lives who are there to catch us when we fall and help us get back up, who are willing to “do life together.”
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid, do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
Joshua 1:9 (NIV)
Have a wonderful week, friends!
