Battles & Bravery
A new year brings new things. Many people are making lists of various things including how they might become a better person or how they plan to lose more weight. A new year brings a feeling of freshness, but what I also know is that we definitely need not wait until the beginning of a new year to start afresh. Jesus is willing to meet with us at any moment, on any day, in any circumstance. This year as this realization set in for me on a whole new level I really decided that my only desire this year is to know Jesus more. I have been pursuing that over the past couple of days as well as reading the Chronicles of Narnia. There is a part that plays over in my mind vividly. In The Magician’s Nephew, Diggory is in pain over the thought of losing his mother. He looks straight into the lion’s eyes, brimmed with tears, and can feel throughout himself just how deeply He cares. Aslan sees the pain Diggory feels at the thought of losing his mother when he knows that there is a way his mother can become well again.
