Good read. I just want to share the line that struck me in the blog post. “God has come in again and again to show me I can trust His plan; He will get me to my destination.”
Timely words for a discouraged heart.
Even if it doesn’t make any sense, let’s remember that God is in control and that He’s relentlessly committed to our good. 🙂
Like many writers, I love to read.
Even as a child there was nothing I enjoyed more than curling up with a good book and a snack to tune out the real world for an hour or two.
And yet, the stories I read way back then taught me so much about how to cope with the real world today.
“Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”
Even though G.K. Chesterton is talking specifically about fairy tales in this quote, the truth is that all the stories I remember most from my childhood encourage me to slay dragons that I face.
Stories like A Wrinkle in Time, The Silver Chair, and The Island of the Blue Dolphins push me to see adversity as something not to give in to but trials to overcome.
