Aslan is on the move

I just love this quote from C.S. Lewis’s “The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe”. It’s probably one of my most favorite literature quotes of all time. There is something so powerful and exciting and hard to really wrap my arms around entirely within the context and the feel of a very short sentence that, for me, is packed full of both meaning and mystery.

It’s 3 am and lately this is the hour I’ve done my best thinking and writing. My littlest one wakes me to feed and while he dreams so do I… Big, God inspired dreams that only God can bring at 3 am.

In this season of life, it’s so easy to be distracted by the negative… By the challenges…

But that’s what’s so absolutely awesome about our dear Aslan… He is always on the move.He is never distracted. He is never worried. He never even sleeps. He doesn’t have to. While we dream, whether awake or asleep, He is always always always on the move.

This Spirit, of hopeful mystery that does not disappoint, thinks it best to speak to me and inspire me in these wee hours caring for wee ones. And all I can think is that Aslan is on the move.

I pray that mysterious hope fills my heart and mind when sleep and rest do not…When I type my stories with one thumb in the middle of the dark because in this season that’s the best time for stories to be recorded.

Not just the idea, but the TRUTH, that my wonderful, powerful Aslan is always on the move, will always be enough to help me rise and keep hoping and dreaming and believing that, because of Him, I am enough and because of Him, I will do even greater things.

I will never know what it is about 3 am that inspires me so. But I am certain Aslan is behind it. And I’m so excited to see where He is moving me and you and us.
