whether we live or die, aslan is our lord

a comment elicited by my recent post on anger really has helped me in the last few days. it has really boiled the whole situation down and all that remains is the big picture.

His love. that's all that matters. and any time over the past few days that i have experienced a feeling of doubt, of question, of anxiety, it all disintigrates with just a self reminder of His all encompassing love.
it reminds me of one of my favorite quotes from narnia. in the silver chair after jill pole and eustace scrubb free the prince from the enchanted silver chair, they are faced with taking on the army of an evil sorceress. as they peer out the window at their doom and worry aloud, the prince comforts them all with one line-
"whether we live or die, aslan is still our lord."
so that is the big picture. that is what matters most. not how much we have accomplished or what circles we run in. not the amount we have in the bank account or what luxury items we own. and not how long our lives are.


  1. I love the Bible quote from the book of Job.
    Job 1:20-21 Then Job rose up, and rent his garments, and having shaven his head fell down upon the ground and worshipped, And said: Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away: as it hath pleased the Lord so is it done: blessed be the name of the Lord.

    The popular version of this is: "The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord"

  2. Awesome post! As the prayer says, while we are here, we are in a valley of tears from where we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping. But, He is our Lord, and He hears us. And, we will not be fully alive until we are fully with Him. It's so easy to give advice, even though I fail and fall prey to fear and worry so often myself; but I know - as do you - that we must remember that God holds us in His hands and heart. Even in your darkest moments, you will be a witness to Christ's love, as you have been so beautifully already, because He made you and loves you, and you know and love Him. xoxo
