I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung over at our Five Minute Friday website. Today’s word prompt is “intentional.” We would love to have you join us.
This was not intentional at all, but this is what happened. On Sunday, after church, I went to see The Greatest Showman because Karrilee had seen it twice already. And now I can’t stop talking about it.
The story of PT Barnum, his dreams, his life, the dreams of the circus acts. So much goodness and full of so much intentionality about identity and belonging. My new anthem is the words from the song “This is Me.” We are made glorious on purpose. Each of us is fearfully and wonderfully made.
This movie is full of faith themes. In all actuality, it reminded me that God is the ultimate Showman. These themes were maybe not intentional, but they do seem to come across that way. This movie is oozing with love, grace, mercy, belonging and identity. Who are we as beloved children of God? This movie points us to who and whose we are.
Sorry, not sorry. But I can’t get enough of this movie. I’m singing the songs at the top of my lungs because they echo my own dreams. This movie is a movie for all of us; for all the dreamers!
