No Such Thing As a Dragon

  • But we ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters loved by the Lord, because God chose you as first fruits to be saved through the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth. 2Thessalonians 2:13 NIV

    When my kids were young, they frequently asked me to read the book, There’s No Such Thing As a Dragon by Jack Kent. This fun book starts out with, “Billy Bixby was rather surprised when he woke up one morning and found a dragon in his room.   It was a small dragon, about the size of a kitten.” Billy’s mother kept telling Billy that there is no such thing as a dragon. Each time that the dragon was ignored, it grew larger until finally it was so large that it could carry the house on its back. When Billy’s mother finally admitted that there was a dragon, it returned to kitten sized again. Billy notes that “he just wanted to be noticed.”

    Don’t we all feel like the dragon sometimes? We want to be noticed. When we feel as though no one notices us, the dragon inside starts to grow and grow until we are ready to breathe fire. It’s just nice to be noticed. Hearing a thank you, seeing a smile, receiving a tearful hug – these things all make us feel loved and appreciated. Just as Paul wrote, “We ought always to thank God for you,” we notice others when we are thankful for them. God finds so many ways to show us that He notices us. This community is one way. Each time that someone sends me a message or likes a blog or post, I feel as though God is noticing. All of the prayers that are shared on this site, let us know that God notices. Not only does He notice, but He cares enough to reach out to each of us in ways that are meaningful to us. Thank you, Lord for the many ways that you notice me daily!
