CAPTIVE in theaters 9/18 ~ Will you be Watching? #followyourpurpose #flyby

We’ve all faced circumstances that have held us captive in some regard.
What has held you captive?
How did you find your purpose?  

CAPTIVE, based on a miraculous true story that drew the attention of the entire nation, is a thrilling drama about the spiritual collision of two broken lives.  When Brian Nichols - on the run as the subject of a city wide manhunt and desperate to make contact with his newborn son - takes recovering meth addict Ashley Smith hostage in her own apartment, she turns for guidance to Rick Warren’s best-selling inspirational book, The Purpose Driven Life.  While reading aloud, Ashley and her
would-be killer each face crossroads where despair and death intersect hope.  

The movie stars David Oyelowo, who played Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in the recent film, Selma.

After watching the movie trailer I am anxious to see the full movie in the theaters!  I know it came out on September 18th but I have not yet had an opportunity to go see it.  I had heard of the original release of the book and the basic story, but never really put myself in Ashley's place.

Now that I've seen the trailer, I have wondered what I would have done in that same situation?  Would I have taken the chance to read aloud to a desperate stranger holding me at gunpoint?  Would I have the courage to share God's Love in the face of my fear?

Although I have not personally went through a situation like Ashley did, I have had circumstances in my life where I felt that I was held "captive" by the circumstances.  Only with God's help was I able to overcome the problems and continue living a life of Faith and Love.

I hope you also will take the time to go see Captive in the theater - or read the book for yourself.
