Hello! I hope this finds you well!

We have talked a lot about finding Real Love; about praying to feel loved, about spending time with people who love us unconditionally so that we can feel safe, tell the truth about ourselves and behave in loving ways.

So I was delighted when I recently re-read this paragraph from The Magician’s Nephew by C. S. Lewis. Using the Christ-type, Aslan, Lewis illustrates the beauty of this very idea!

“Both the children were looking up into the Lion’s face as he spoke these words. And all at once (they never knew exactly how it happened) the face seemed to be a sea of tossing gold in which they were floating, and such a sweetness and power rolled about them and over them and entered them that they felt they had never really been happy or wise or good, or even alive and awake, before. And the memory of that moment stayed with them always, so that as long as they both lived, if ever they were sad or afraid or angry, the thought of all that golden goodness, and the feeling that it was still there, quite close, just round some corner or just behind some door, would come back and make them sure, deep down inside, that all was well.”

Have you experienced something akin to this feeling when you have prayed to feel God’s love for you? Or when you have felt His love through the ministrations of others? Or when you have been ministering to your family members or friends?

If not, I hope you will.

My prayer is that you will be tossed in that gold, floating, with sweetness and Love’s power rolling about and over and in you.

And if you are ever sad or afraid or angry, I hope you’ll have the memory of seeing His face and knowing that all is well.

God bless you today and always.

The mission of Lioness at the Door is to uplift, strengthen and encourage women of all ages to magnify health, hope and happiness at home. We do so boldly, with humility and gratitude for the opportunity.
