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.”
There are times in our lives when we feel like we have everything worked out. We know exactly what we need to do, where we need to go, and we just know that we have our life worked out. But then, something happens....
There is a country song that says "Some times I thank God for unanswered prayers." There are times we can look back on those situations that we thought we had all planned out, and we can say Thank God things turned out differently. We have all dated someone that we thought was "the one", but when we get married to the "Real One", we look back and realize God had someone better in mind. It is hard when we are in those situations - the break-up from the love of our life that we thought we were gonna marry - but as we look back we realize God's plan.
That is what is going on in this movie. This group of friends has graduated from college, and for the most part they "know" what they are going to do. As they set out on their journeys, they soon find out that their plans are not always what God has planned.
This is a great movie for anyone that is struggling with trying to find out what calling God has on their life. "We often think of God's calling as something for us to do, but, in reality, God's calling is something for us to be!"
