No more fear. The King is Here.

As we approach the end of 2020, we have a lot to be thankful for 1. friendships-that have grown as we have supported each other and that have survived this horrible pandemic. 2. Agape Love, 3. Joy in spite of the pandemic, 4. A sense of peace that comes only from heaven. 5. Lastly hope: we never had to fear YHWH leaving us. The Lion of Judah stood firm and resolute in our hearts, souls, and minds. Whereas, we may have questioned many things we never had to question His love for us. One’s sense of belonging is heightened. One’s willingness to reach up and grab a hold of the hand that will pick us up and wrap us securely in His protective embrace confirmed that childlike faith as tiny as a mustard seed is all it takes for us to know that “Aslan” is here.

Aslan turned to them and said: “You do not yet look so happy as I mean you to be.” Lucy said, “We’re so afraid of being sent away, Aslan. And you have sent us back into our own world so often.” “No fear of that,” said Aslan. “Have you not guessed?” Their hearts leaped, and a wild hope rose within them. “There was a real railway accident,” said Aslan softly. “Your father and mother and all of you are—as you used to call it in the Shadowlands— dead. The term is over: the holidays have begun. The dream is ended: this is the morning.” And as He spoke He no longer looked to them like a lion; but the things that began to happen after that were so great and beautiful that I cannot write them. And for us this is the end of all the stories, and we can most truly say that they all lived happily ever after. But for them it was only the beginning of the real story. All their life in this world and all their adventures in Narnia had only been the cover and the title page: now at last they were beginning Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before.
