Lucy felt a little frightened, but she felt very inquisitive and excited as well. She looked back over her shoulder and there, between the dark tree trunks, she could still see the open doorway of the wardrobe and even catch a glimpse of the empty room from which she had set out. (She had, of course, left the door open, for she knew that it is a very silly thing to shut oneself into a wardrobe.) It seemed to be still daylight there, “I can always get back if anything goes wrong,” thought Lucy. She began to walk forward, crunch-crunch over the snow and through the wood toward the other light. – The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
I am not as great a risk-taker as I’d like to be but I am not a wimp either! I like adventure. Adventure with a good measure of wisdom!
One’s relationship with the Lord is a great adventure. Just like Lucy who could look back and see where she came from, we can think back on all the times we thought were impossible at the time and yet God carried us through. And, like Lucy, it gives us the courage to take another step into the unknown. Life is like that wardrobe. Some things feel good and snuggly. Some things scratch us and leave bloody scars. Some are cold and uncomfortable and yet, we plod on. We go forward with the assurance that God is with us and for us.
2012 is now two weeks old. I sense an adventure ahead and I am walking toward that light!
