Last night, while I happened to watch a series at Dubai One, The UAE's national TV Channel, I was surprised that one of the upcoming movies to watch in the next couple of hours was the faith-based movie ' Grace Unplugged'. The thought of it being watched by lots of people and for it simply being played in the UAE is just amazing and heartwarming at the same time. I don't want to say that I want things to be done always what I think it would've been as some may think. I sincerely respect all of the other religions but in this case, I just want to applaud the UAE for being so open and accepting towards others especially towards Christianity. I pray that it will last and make everyone happy as always!
You know, it's important to show respect to one another regardless of their beliefs and stand in certain areas -- because if it was that way, I guess the world will just be a nicer and peaceful place to live in.
This morning, I did a little research of the movie (although I watched it about 5 times already) and found a video that covers why the movie was made and its purpose and how the actors reacted to it. I hope that this doesn't just make it a Christian film but also, a movie that focuses on the aspect of 'family' and honoring morals and values that is sadly falling away nowadays.
I am just stoked to see how God is working and how He unplugs His grace daily just for us-- that through a movie, many can get inspired to keep believing and trusting God -- no matter what happens and also, how it exposes the things that are truly happening nowadays. With every sad thing that's happening just around the corner, it's good to see that even in a movie, things don't always go the right way as intended. Sometimes, it takes a little twist and turn to lead us to the path where we truly belong. A path where we'll feel complete and joyful for eternity -- a thing that neither ourselves or anything in this world can offer us.
For those of you who haven't watched the movie yet, I'm telling you, go watch it! Haha!
I live an ordinary life; striving and making it work in the giant sandpit aka Dubai. My life isn't perfect (I wish it was!) But I guess there's something about the imperfection in my journey that makes it worth the write and share. I believe that we don't have to have everything figured out because if we do, a lifetime won't be enough...
