What to do, What to say?
I have realized that many people believe life is a fairy tale. This is not my problem. What I have become concerned about is when they take out all the happy and delightful parts of the story and expect life to be exactly like that.
All fairy tales had a villain and this is important to take notice of my friends. Therefore, life is expected to have difficult moments, moments when you are struggling to make it, moments when you lose yourself and wander through the forests in search of your identity, and moments when you become stagnant or fall asleep in what you do. You will experience darkness but you have to ensure it doesn’t consume you.
Life is a journey not a bed of roses… Life helps you to discover yourself: your strengths and your weaknesses, your abilities and lack thereof, your willpower and The Will of the Master.
So… It’s not just about a happy ending folks.
“Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”– G.K. Chesterton

Home field advantage can mean everything in sports. Teams who are at home often have a far better record than those on the road. When a team has someone cheering them on, they can often out play their ability.
The Bible says that you, too, have an audience cheering you on. Hebrews 12:1 says, “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us”.
Nothing you do is private. You have an audience. Heaven is watching. But, more importantly, you have a cheering section. The Bible says that everyone in Heaven is cheering you on.
You probably realize that God knows everything. The Bible says “The eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth” (2 Chronicles 16:9 ). The Lord doesn’t miss a thing. He knows your ups and your downs, your everything. He knows every thought you have.
But you’re also surrounded by “a huge cloud of witnesses to this life of faith.” Moses is watching you. Abraham is watching you. Every believer who has ever lived is in the stands watching you live out your faith.
And they’re cheering you on. When you’re scared, they’re rooting for you to be courageous. When you want to give up, they’re urging you to keep going. When you feel insignificant and forgotten, they’re in your corner.
We are never alone, use this strength to hold on, fight when necessary but also to build, encourage, heal and love.
