" For I know the plans I have for you , declares the Lord, Plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future. "
This is one of my favorite scriptures. It has come to me in many places where I felt like my life was out of control or that I had no clue what was going on.
God reminds us that He has everything under control. That He has a perfect plan for our lives even when we don't see it. Those days when we think things will never work out or that there's no way we can figure it out, He reminds us that He has plans for a future and hope for us. His plans are not to harm us but go help us prosper.
It's amazing how watching a children's program can remind you of that too! I recently got the chance to review the VeggieTales Noah movie that will be coming out in a few weeks. It is another amazing production from the group at Big Idea.
This video is teaching children about trusting in God. That's something adults have trouble with sometimes. If you're like me you get concerned. Sometimes you might worry or be afraid of things you can't control. God doesn't want you to be afraid. He wants you to trust that He has a plan for you and that His plans are better than we could ever imagine for ourselves.
Noah is building the ark in this video and getting ready for the flood. His son Shem is coming home after he got married and has all these big plans for he and his wife. When he arrives home he finds his father is building an ark right where he planned to build his house!
The adventure continues and he learns to trust that God has plans for us and knows whats best. No matter how we might try to "help" God along, trusting Him is always the best route.
We loved this new release and can't wait for you to see it too! You can pre-order the video over at Family Christian and have it come to us as soon as it's out.
I can say this came at exactly the right time for me. I had some worries and concerns going on myself and found that trusting God is the only way to go!!
