VeggieTales-Noah’s Ark



I just finished watching this sweet video. A flood of emotions comes at the opening song as I remember my son laying across his bed with his feet in the air, singing those same words. Ahhh, where does the time go? 

This video will be released tomorrow, and I have a copy to giveaway! You won’t want to miss this movie. Just leave a comment and subscribe to the blog and a random winner will be picked on Thursday!

Noah’s Ark-a Lesson in Trusting God

Shem (Wayne Brady) and his new wife Sadie are fresh off their honeymoon, making all kinds of plans when they return to find Noah building an Ark. Shem is upset because the Ark is sitting where he was going to build his house and start his life.

Reluctantly, Shem begins to work on the Ark, and when the rains come, he prepares himself for a short distraction of his plans. But those weren’t God’s plans. Shem sings-Your plans are in my way, I’ve got plans!

Noah encourages Shem to trust in God and He will see us through, but again, Shem takes over and devises a plan B so he can be in control of his own destiny. God showed Shem in the end that His plans are good. Shem’s plans left him alone, adrift and afraid.

Does any of that resonate with you? What area have you taken the reins from God and pushed His plans aside?

God’s plans are much better than our own.

    I find myself consulting God about my plans only after they fail. I know that if I just consult Him in the first place, things would go much more smoothly. Just have to get in that habit!

    Isn’t that true about most of us, that we get caught up in our own agenda & forget that it may not be what God wants for us. I personal have a very hard time listening to that still small voice in the wind. My mind gets full of the worries of this world. Some times i wish God would hit me over the head with a 2×4 & yell at me to pay attention. But as I take this journey with him every day is a new adventure & I’ll keep an open mind & heart so God may teach me something new.

    Oh, By the way Jen, your cousin, Steve, sent me a very special gift this weekend. He sent me the book “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young. It was a big surprise and i was thrilled to receive it. I’m not sure why he would send it & the only thing I can think of is God laid it on his heart to do so. God reaches out to us in ways we often do not understand.

    This is an area in my life where the Holy Spirit has convicted me and rightfully so. I would go about with my plans until they failed and then would go crying to God. It has only been very recently that I have asked God what His plans are for me and to follow them. God is good!

    I am constantly asking God for guidance, even when I feel on track. It’s an amazing feeling when you do things the way God has intended.


Tell me what you think.
