My Evan Almighty Moment

Last night, my family and I watched Evan Almighty (again.) I like the gist of this movie. Every time I watch it, I end up tearing up! I know, I know, it's a comedy...but there are several things that I love about it. One, is that it shows that God can do whatever He chooses. We can either go along with it, or fight it, but He will accomplish it regardless. The other thing I love, is that right up until the very end...Evan (and his family) are looking for the flood to be caused by rain. How often do I assume I know and understand what God's plan is only to be surprised at what His plan really was!

Last night...something else about the movie hit me, for the first time. It was the bathroom shaving scene. (If you haven't seen the movie, it's in the clip above.) You know the one...he keeps shaving and as soon as he's finished it's grown right back in. Well, I heard a still, small voice say..."Sarah, my beloved...this is your beard...don't fight against the Lego's anymore...they will just grow back. Be at peace...someday you will be sad they're no longer everywhere"

I get it...I heard the message. I am going to live in peace with the millions of Legos that live in every room of my house. Fighting it is futile. Oh the lessons I learn from movies...


  1. Cute post. I so get this. I am looking at fake food spread all over the floor as I type...I so get this.

  2. Do you have a lego table...with the drawer underneath for all the pieces? If not it should be on the Christmas list for this year!

  3. I love that. The Legos are your beard.

    The laundry is my beard.

    Um, that might be the weirdest sentence I have ever typed.

  4. Great, great, analogy!!

    It was fun seeing you over at The Preacher's Wife's blog today! :-)

  5. Classic! And yes, as a Momma whose one and only baby is now all grown up and in will truly one day miss having them all over your floor, and even occassionally finding one under your bare feet in the middle of the night! (ouch!)

  6. You know, God's creativity never ceases to amaze me! I've had so many of these moments myself... though so far legos haven't been the topic, but I'll let you know... ;-D

    Love getting these peeks into your brain/life/walk with God. Thanks for keeping it real. I am so often encouraged... and occasionally convicted, but I'm not sure I'm ready to thank you for that just yet... LOL! ;-)


  7. I have a similar "beard" - Polly Pocket shoes, purses, etc. I've enjoyed reading your blog. I'm adding you to my sidebar of blogs that I read. Talk to you soon!

  8. Beth: I love are sweet enough to think that my children would keep their legos at the lego table...God Bless you...if only it were true :)

  9. Yes! Be at peace, but watch where you step! Especially before you've had your coffee!!

    Have a good one!

  10. That is sooo cute and I'm laughing out loud! The Legoes are your beard! Laundry would be my beard.

  11. Man! Heth beat me to it! I really need to read all the comments before making my own so I don't sound like a copycat.
