Slaying Dragons

By Dave Eden, Eden Political Cartoons

JR Tolkien said the human heart longs for more than realistic fiction. He felt like fairytales & fantasy touch chords of desire deep in our souls. We long for such themes because WE WERE MADE FOR THEM! Born to be warriors. Born to be wild. Born to be full of childlike wonder. Born for another world. He even listed 5 of these themes. Our hearts long for:

  1. a timeless magical place.
  2. an escape from death.
  3. to meet heroic, extraordinary beings.
  4. to know perfect, eternal love.
  5. the final conquest over all evil.

If deep down, you have an inkling that you are a Dragon Slayer, but feel you life lacks the power to go up against the hugeness of the world... STOP. Dont feeling that way, because it is a fact that a single grain of sand starts a landslide.
You can be that single grain of sand in this world, because one never knows what small things we do or say, may telegraph around our city, state, nation or world, and eventually change what today looks like the coming of a painful future.

Ephesians 6:12-13
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
