Lifehouse's Everything Skit

Check out this amazing skit that my wife sent to me.

It made me cry. Of course, if you know me, that's a pretty easy trick. (Blasted emotions.) The video's long-ish at 5+ minutes, but very moving.

I want to say more, but I'll spoil it for you.

So just watch.

Showed this at home group last week and it set off a great conversation about prodigals.

That's cool. I was surprised that I didn't get more (any!) comments here on it.

I found it very powerful, especially seeing the desperation of the woman trying to return to God and the determination of the 'evil ones' to stop her. Several times she's literally thrown back to the ground. It's heartbreaking watching her desperation and failure.

She never gives up, but it isn't until God intervenes that they are reunited.

There's some powerful truth in that. That no matter how hard we work, we cannot get to God. That there are real forces actively preventing us from finding Him. That those forces don't work very hard to keep us away from God until we are desperate to find Him. Then they are brutal and relentless. That they are stronger the we, but He is stronger than they. That He wants us more than we want Him.

When God steps in and throws the evil ones aside like discarded wads of paper (much as she had been tossed by them), standing between them and her was very moving to me.
