A screenwriter can spend months, or even years, perfecting a script. However, sometimes, the most iconic lines uttered on the silver screen aren’t the result of a writer at the top of his or her game, but rather an actor offering up some creative ad-libbing. Some of the most iconic moments in movie history were “off script.”
“Mr. Stark, I don’t feel so good.” – Avengers Infinity War
“Here’s Johnny” – The Shining
“Here’s looking at you, kid” – Casablanca
The Joker’s slow clap – The Dark Knight
“I’m king of the world.” – Titanic
“You’re gonna need a bigger boat” Jaws
“Off script” seems to be a very apt way to describe what often happens to all of us. Something transpires in our lives that strays away from our intended plan(s). But that’s most of real life happens. It’s “off script”; completely unexpected and unplanned. This June, join us as we head into a story that is everything but “expected” by the people involved. The book of Ruth is canvas to view a beautiful picture of God’s love engaging in our “off scripted” lives.
Other thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:
- A life free from pain is not promised by God.
- We can remain confident that whatever happens, we always have a God-given mission and a part of big things that God is doing in the world.
- God takes what makes you feel marginal and uses it to create something meaningful.
- Our desire to see God’s plan must be dressed in discipline.
- We move from insignificance to significance by believing God’s voice over all the others.
- “I may be in the SAME place, but I have a NEW story.”
Love you all. Have a great week.
BTW: Here’s a great song for the week…
