Because of Gracia Hits Theaters September 15th

Masey plays one the three "mean girls" in the new film, "Because of Gracia" next to singer/songwriter Louisa Wendorff, and former co-star Emma Elle Roberts from "I'm Not Ashamed." While Masey filmed this almost 3 years ago she is so excited to see this cast on the big screen and this story come to life, stating how special and fun it was to work with this group of people. Masey says that this cast bonded in an incredible way, and many from this cast launched out to film "I'm Not Ashamed." You will definitely see some familiar faces when watching "Because of Gracia," including former co-star Ben Davies. Contemporary Christian artist Moriah Peters and actor Chris Massoglia both lead this film extremely well, and it is a joy to watch. The cast recently had the premiere in downtown Franklin, Tennessee, and Masey says that it was as if no time had past. They all have genuine love and respect for each other and it was a blast all being back together.

Chase Morgan would love to live up to his own name and pursue something great. It's his senior year and he’s still as insecure as ever but Eastglenn High's newest student is about to turn that around. Grácia is a girl with charisma, intelligence and conviction but she’s not as “put together” as Chase and his best friend OB might think. A dark past gives her a unique connection with Bobbi, a misunderstood classmate with a pushy boyfriend and disconnected father. As Bobbi struggles with a life-and-death decision and Chase risks rejection, Grácia challenges her friends, teachers and even herself to step outside the status quo. Because of Grácia’s inspiring strength, those around her are finding it easier to speak up and fall in love.

Soundwaves 2017 will benefit the Las Parcelas School located approximately one hour north of Managua, Nicaragua. The school is located in a small, impoverished village with access to very little resources and supplies. Ruby Ranch, a 400 acre ranch nearby, serves as a retreat center to equip people in their walk with Christ, maintains hundreds of orange and lemon trees to help sustain the nutritional needs of the ministry and surrounding community, and works closely with the teachers of the Las Parcelas school to find and provide needs of the school children. That is where Team Hungry enters in. We believe that education is one of the critical keys to unlocking the chains of generational poverty. We are partnering with Ruby Ranch to help provide school uniforms, shoes, socks, backpacks, and school supplies for the students from the Las Parcelas school. (The cost for one child is $225.00 per year.)

The mountains are probably one of my favorite places to be. When you’re up on a mountain, you kind of feel like you’re on top of the world; it’s so peaceful, and the view is breathtaking.

First, though, you have to climb the mountain, and the worst part of the whole mountain experience is when you’re about halfway up. Your legs start to feel like Jell-O, and the people hiking around you start looking at you funny because you’re making loud, irregular breathing noises. (When you have your headphones on, you don’t really realize how your breathing is disturbing the peace.)

It’s the best feeling to get to the top. But as wonderful as mountains are, life isn’t lived on mountaintops. And if you stay up there too long, you might turn into the crazy person that never comes down to society.  

Have you ever noticed how much more quickly you seem to go down a mountain than up? You almost have to run down because it’s so steep. It can be pretty ruthless. Sometimes that’s how life is. You keep climbing, climbing, climbing, pushing through, pushing through, until you get there. The summit is so, so sweet. Every step was worth it. But you know you have to come down at some point. 

When you’re on level ground, which is most of the time, the buildings and cars and trees and people don’t look so small anymore, and taking on the world doesn’t seem so easy. Reality sets in. The mundane, everyday tasks make you want to be back up on the mountain, where you felt close to God and everything looked perfect. Up there everything seemed so simple and beautiful, while down here all you see is what’s around you. 

I pray that as the people of God, we will walk faithfully on level ground. 

If anyone in Scripture rode the highs and lows of life, it was David. One day he was the greatest and most loved king, and the next day everybody wanted him dead. Other days, he just cried out for the Lord to be near to him, because life was just confusing. He was no stranger to the mountain, and he was no stranger to level ground. 

David prayed: “Keep steady my steps according to your promise, and let no iniquity get dominion over me” (Psalm 119:133, ESV).

Yes, Lord, keep steady our steps. Whatever the high, whatever the low, or however much level ground lies in front of us. According to your promise.

I am awful at directions. If it weren’t for my GPS (which I endearingly named Florence, after Florence and the Machine––I thought it was clever), I’d be done for. Just like we would be lost without our GPS’ guiding the way, we are left aimlessly wandering without God’s word to guide our way. It works when we’re walking on level ground and it guides us up (and down) the mountain. 

“Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.” Psalm 119: 105

Sometimes, when we’re on level ground, all we have is a memory of the view from up high. We can’t see very far. We can start to panic and wonder what in the world is going on. But all he is asking us to do is to keep walking, to seek him and follow his Word. 

That’s how he keeps our steps steady day after day.

“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8, NASB). 

Walk humbly with your God. Through whatever lies ahead. In the mundane, now.
