How are we supposed to free ourselves from the spiritual emptiness and the degenerate life and find a genuine life? I was so lost and befuddled before, but now I’ve found the answer.
The Odd Sound Out – Obey God
This animated short film has a fresh and lovely style. It tells us the truth of being a man using a small character in the world of sound: The best thing isn’t really suitable for us, but the one that suitable for us is sure to be the best.
In this film, everyone was followed by a group of invisible little creatures who played suitable sounds for the environment to maintain people’s normal life. Among them, a little orange creature, Trootpout, couldn’t fit in because of his odd sound, so he set out to find a place fit for him. However, he made one blunder after another and was rejected by all, which made him feel useless and lonely. At last, he still couldn’t find a suitable place and was blown away on a snowy street. When he woke again, he ran into his original host who had trouble calming a crying baby, and found that other sounds were unable to pacify the baby. At this time, the little orange creature found the courage to make an odd sound even though he was still rejected by others. To their surprise, his sound worked. The host fell into a full box of clothes because of the odd sound, then stood up with funny clothes on. Facing this scene, the baby stopped crying and laughed happily. The little orange creature finally found a suitable place to play his role. The story has a happy ending here.
The sweet ending makes me happy even though I once felt sorry for the little orange creature. His odd sound seemed useless, but later he figured out where he fit best and played his role. Most of the time, we want to work, study or live in a place where we like, but the place actually doesn’t fit us or our ability, or even goes against us in everything. However, the other place may be not so ideal, but it’s the most suitable place for us to play our role. In fact, this is the Creator’s best arrangement for everyone.
Just as God’s words say, “From the moment you come crying into this world, you begin to perform your duty. You assume your role in the plan of God and in the ordination of God. You begin the journey of life. Whatever your background and whatever the journey ahead of you, none can escape the orchestration and arrangement that Heaven has in store, and none are in control of their destiny, for only He who rules over all things is capable of such work. Since the day man came into existence, God has been steady in His work, managing this universe and directing the change and movement of all things. Like all things, man quietly and unknowingly receives the nourishment of the sweetness and rain and dew from God. Like all things, man unknowingly lives under the orchestration of God’s hand. The heart and spirit of man are held in the hand of God, and all the life of man is beheld in the eyes of God. Regardless of whether or not you believe this, any and all things, living or dead, will shift, change, renew, and disappear according to God’s thoughts. This is how God rules over all things.” From God’s words, we can know that our paths of life are ruled over and arranged by God. Each of us has our duty and plays our role. Although sometimes we have our own thoughts and plans, they are not necessarily suitable for us. Only by submitting to God’s orchestrations and arrangements can we find the most suitable place for us. After knowing this, I’m no longer confused about my prospects and fate, but seek God’s will more, obey His orchestrations and arrangements, and enjoy my life.
