Not about Safe.

“But I cannot tell that to this old sinner, and I cannot comfort him either; he has made himself unable to hear my voice. If I spoke to him, he would hear only growlings and roarings. Oh, Adam's son, how cleverly you defend yourself against all that might do you good!” 
-The Magicians Nephew

Amazing how He speaks in so many things. Even a children's book. This is everything we should fear right here-following in the footsteps of American Christianity. I don't just wanna hear noise when the King of the Universe is speaking to me. I want to know that voice with intimacy. Anybody else? What do you KNOW deep within your spirit you need to do that goes against others understanding? Believe God. Believe Him. He is wild. He goes against the world we're in. But admit it. You've always secretly longed for a wild adventure, haven't you? Stop looking. It's right in front of you. It's Jesus Himself. I promise. 

"Is Aslan.....Safe?" Lucy asked. 
“Safe?" said Mr. Beaver.
"Who said anything about safe? 'Course he isn't safe. But he's good. He's the King, I tell you.”

Some of my favorite quotes from The Chronicles of Narnia; an expression of faith through C.S. Lewis that transcends stories amongst both children and adults alike.

It is only our own distractions that keep us from recognizing that God is drawing us to himself through all of creation.

I like what you've written here, Daughter of Eve.

'Course he isn't safe. But he's good. He's the King"
