So, when we let him, he (the lion, that is) finds a place in the deserts of our dead hearts to lie down. At first he just gets comfortable and settled there. And then he paces around some and starts roaring softly, working up to a louder roar as he slowly speaks life and creation back into our souls. He roars, and hills of sand turn into grassy fields. He plants trees and flowers, one by one, in our hearts, and it is good. Eventually, when we let him, the lion returns our deserted hearts into that first Garden of Eden. He changes us. He takes us back to what we were created for. That is how He redeems us.
I thank God that He chooses to enter my dreams.
