But, then, I started thinking. Am I a Puddleglum? I admit I've had more than my share of negative moments when I was sure all hope was lost. And, I further admit that I've counseled many a friend to just put the circumstances in God's hands, and He will handle the rest. It sounds to me, just like Puddleglum, that I am not practicing what I "preach." How can I be negative all the time, and then turn around and tell others to be positive?
I'm sure when C.S. Lewis wrote the Narnia series, he had no idea how much it was going to impact the world. There are so many lessons to be learned from these stories, and if you haven't read them, I encourage you to. While reading, look for the symbolism tied into each story. I'm sure it will bless you, and maybe even convict you as it has me.
