Un-dragoned

Best thing I’ve read today from C. S. Lewis’ The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Chapter 7:

“Well, anyway, I looked up and saw the very last thing I expected: a huge lion coming slowly towards me. And one queer thing was that there was no moon last night, but there was moonlight where the lion was. So it came nearer and nearer. I was terribly afraid of it. You may think that, being a dragon, I could…

Above the Waves

The waves roared saying, “You fear me.” And flashed things I prayed not to see Then a voice came gently, warmly,

One of the many things I love about You is You don’t tell me to do something without telling me that You are with me. In every step of the way, You always tell me You’re with me. There are times when You tell me to do things that I like, but there are also times when it’s just the opposite. And when, by Your grace, I take that reluctant step—You know there are many,…

"Jesus said to a certain man, ‘come follow me’, but the man said, ‘first let me go tell my family.’ Another man said “first let me first make arrangements for my father’s funeral’. We think that it’s God who puts limitations and conditions on who can follow Him where He’s going. On the contrary, WE are the ones who say, ‘before I can follow you, first I have to deal with this one thing’."

Do HARD things.
Do not despise the hard things. It’s a reflection of God’s love, how He wants you to not just shine but shine brighter. He doesn’t just want you to go upstream, but race your way up. He wants you to stand out, because that’s what He designed you to do.
You are a child of the great God in Christ. You are made for great things.
“The Sovereign LORD is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights.” (Habakkuk 3:19)

“Don’t look at me. I am ugly.”
My hands are covering my face, as if doing so will conceal my heart. I don’t want you to see. My heart hurts from what I see inside. I don’t want you to see.
Then you come closer.
I peek from the gap between my fingers, and see you. See you and realize that tears are welling up in your eyes. And then you smile.
“I have loved you long before you loved me. I have seen you even before you realized that I was looking. Have I not told you that I love you with an everlasting love?” 
The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness.” (Jeremiah 31:3)

I  was looking for  an old notebook that I could use for my reconciliation to writing stories again. The fire to write (short) stories was set ablaze last night, thanks to some animated films that I watched. So yeah, I was racking the cabinet in my room and found a thicker-than-binder fillers apple green notebook that I wasn’t able to completely fill back in college. I scanned the pages and found that there were around 8-10 pages filled at the back. Quite thick.
I ranged the filled pages and tore it away from the rest of the notebook. Only the front and back pages of the range got torn immediately—did I hold the pages wrong?—while the rest remained attached to the notebook with the now very slightly deformed spiral binder holding it together (more expensive notebooks have rigid spiral binders). In the end I forced the thick filled pages off, proving to myself just how careless I can be at times. Seriously, wasn’t I like a petulant 5-year old back there?
I’m glad God is patient in cleaning the old and messy pages of myself, the parts of me that aren’t fruitful and stains that need riddance. In my impatience with myself, I’m glad that He is who He is—powerful, sovereign, faithful and genuinely loving. He may never be often early, but He’s never late. His timeline is perfect and His love never ever fails.
