Prayer In Tough Times, Serving Others and More

So here’s what happened. A new friend of mine contacted me. He saw the animation work I did for our recent district conference. He was wondering what program I used to do it and if the program would be easy enough to use, because he wanted to make a clip for his upcoming message. Well the truth is, my animations are done using a combination of hand drawing, Photoshop, and iMovie HD. I’m sure there is an easier way of doing this, but it’s a process I developed by trial and error, so probably not the easiest thing for someone else to do. My friend is a good guy, his project seemed simple enough to be done in a few hours, so I offered to give it a try and when he sent me the script, I knew I had to give it a try.

The message behind this video is on prayer but it’s more than that. This is the kind of prayer we pray when God feels silent and faith feels weak. If Christians are honest, I think most of us will admit there are times when this happens to us all. I know it has for me. Here’s what we have to remember, trouble in this world is a promise of Jesus (John 16:33) and when trouble comes it is not an indication of God’s failure, His loss of love for us or  or anything else. It’s a condition of life in a fallen, broken world. God never promised us a trouble free life, instead He promises never to leave nor forsake us. My prayer is this short simple clip is a blessing to my friend’s congregation and also that it will be used to remind someone who reads this post and watched the clip that you are not alone. All of us experience trouble, and through that trouble, we can know, God is with us.
