To be like Lucy...

A lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken!
Who can but prophesy? -Amos 3:8We watched Prince Caspian on Saturday night for the first time. I thought it was much better than the first film; maybe because the themes in this one resonated with me on a deep level. I've been pondering many of them from the movie and I think the one that I was moved the most by, was the conversation Lucy had with Aslan shown below. The challenge of walking a life of faith, seeing what many don't see, of being led by God in ways that others choose to not follow; is a sometimes tough reality to life in the Spirit. The simplicity, devotion, faith and joy that was caught in Lucy in the film...ministered life to me.

The part of this clip where Lucy approached the bridge in the face of the oncoming army is a perfect picture of so many moments of ones faith journey. We who are able to see the unseen One; are able to do what only a vision of Him would inspire.
Faith in Aslan...is really at the heart of the story. Choosing to believe in Him, to follow Him, talk to Him, dream of Him, listen for Him, hear Him, search for Him, find Him....embrace Him and then go where He says to go...no matter what you face. That is a powerful truth to outwork in a film.Who after seeing and hearing Aslan...wouldn't also roar?
"The LORD roars from Zion And from Jerusalem He utters His voice; And the shepherds' pasture grounds mourn, And the summit of Carmel dries up."-Amos 1:2
