The Big Fat Fairy Tale

Long, long ago, before even the creation of man, there existed a creature of exquisite beauty. He was deemed to have the seal of perfection by his Creator and was given more wisdom than any other. He was given a place of honor and was held in high regard. He was, also, given free will to choose and that is where his problem began.*
    

His heart grew proud because of his beauty and important status; he corrupted his wisdom for the sake of his splendor.* He grew discontented with his given task and began to plot, thinking, “I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God; I will sit on the mount of assembly on the heights of Zaphon; I will ascend to the tops of the clouds, I will make myself like the Most High." **
 
He was cast from the heavens for his mutinous thoughts, but that changed him naught. He can be likened to the main character in a dark fairy tale told ‘round the world. A cunning, phony frog prince whose whispered promises of a happy ending have kept mankind in turmoil for thousands of years. And his pursuit of you is relentless. His lies twist and turn to make what is wrong seem right. He has the uncanny ability to dangle the temptation that appeals to your mind's eye, waiting for the moment that you wet your lips and lean in ever so slightly in anticipation of that first kiss...

Or perhaps you bought the story that he panders and feel lost in the muck and the mire of poor choices made. Feeling your destiny is but to trudge through more of the same...

Maybe his guise did not come in the form of something pleasurable at all, but because his influence has caused so much pain and suffering in the world you have been left wondering if there is a God in heaven…

 
Perhaps you have suffered pain and agony first hand…

No matter your circumstance, there is One who can set your world right. The Hero of heroes, Lord of lords, King of kings! One whose truth will shine brightly into the deepest, darkest corners of your heart; exposing the darkness within and that spread over the world by the evil frog prince's lies.
 

                                                     And He loves you! 
 
I hope you will explore this blog. I hope God uses these words to speak to your heart and set you on a journey to meet the One Who Loves You Most. I hope.
 
See you next time,
Love,
C
