‘Seasons of Gray’ ~
CFDb Movie Review
Loved by his father, hated by his brothers, and gifted in ways most couldn’t understand…Brady Gray was destined to live a life far beyond the ordinary. Resented to the point of unthinkable betrayal, he is forced off their New Mexico ranch by brothers no longer able to bear the weight of his shadow, let alone his presence.
The unwilling exodus relocates Brady to Dallas, where an unlikely friend, a good job and a promising romance seem to light the road to better days. But the road ends when he is framed for a crime he didn’t commit, sentenced to serve time in a hell he doesn’t deserve and isolated to the lowest point in his life.
But in the unspeakable darkness, light slowly dawns; and Brady begins the process once again of finding hope in the pain and order in the chaos. He is befriended, mentored, and, in a series of events strange enough to be anything except coincidence, he is reconnected with his former employer, released to a life of freedom and re-hired to a position of power.
Winning back the woman he loves seems to be the final step in the twisted maze until the most unexpected twist of all leaves him face to face with the brothers who rejected him… whose world now hangs in his hands. Having overcome more than most could dream of, he stands now before the only enemy left for him to face… his own pain. Is it possible to rise above it?
This film is a modern day Joseph story and they did a great job with this one! Joseph and the Good Samaritan too, all in one story. Roger, his mom and I saw this film Friday afternoon. If you haven’t seen it yet, go see it today!
Here are some things I liked about this film!
- When we pray, no voice answers back. Where is God? We all ask this question during times throughout our lives. (We do know the answer though, He is ALWAYS with us, but normally, just as a teacher, QUIET during a test!
- There is a purpose in everything. Romans 8:28 – and we know that all things work together for good, to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
- How important words of encouragement really are!
So 2 other things I want to talk about here – #1 – recently heard a sermon about Joseph and how he had 3 robes during each stage of his life and 2 dreams along with each stage. The 3 robes representing his calling, his training, and his revealed purpose.
- Robe of many colors – back when he was just beginning to understand God has called him.
- Robe of the training & suffering – during his training and refining of his faith and testing times, as he worked for Potiphar and more…
- Robe of the overseer – He is fully ready for his calling, he’s been refined and has learned to completely trust in God.
The speaker then related how we ALL go through these stages and none of us can get from stage 1 to stage 3 without stage 2. It was a powerful sermon and one I needed to relate here even though I’ve just scratched the surface.
The most beautiful illustration was the ending how the speaker then placed the red robe of righteousness, the robe of Christ over top of all 3 robes reminding us that during ALL our stages of our Christian walk, God is with us!
The last and most powerful thought about this film is that there is a time when we all ask God, “WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?” as is asked in this movie as well.
The answer, loud and clear, make no mistake about it…”MY CHARACTER IN YOU!” God wants us to be like Him. He wants us to rise above our circumstances and trust Him no matter what.
