Other side

I've been leisurely re-reading C.S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia over the last little while. I began with The Horse and His Boy; it's always been my favourite book of the series for some reason. And earlier this week, I started on The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe.

There's one theme running through all the books that I've always found beautiful and a little disconcerting as well. Whenever Aslan is mentioned, it is also usually said that while he's the King, he's also the Lion, and no tame beast.

I for one certainly have a tendency of forgetting that particular aspect of my God. He's Father, Friend and Comforter. But, He's also Judge and Destroyer. He is agape, but His love is jealous and all consuming.

You're The Storm
The Cardigans
From the album, Long Gone Before Daylight

Oh it's healing - bang, bang, bang
I can hear your canons call
You've been aiming at my land
Your hungry hammer's falling

And if you want me, I'm your country

I'm an angel bored like hell
And you're a devil meaning well
You steal my lines and you strike me down
Come raise your flag upon me

And if you want me, I'm your country
If you win me, I'm forever

'Cause you're the storm that I've been needing
And all this peace has been deceiving
I like the sweet life and the silence
But it's the storm that I believe in

Come and conquer and drop your bombs
Cross my borders and kill the calm
Bear your fangs and burn my wings
I hear bullets singing

And if you want me, I'm your country
If you win me, I'm forever

'Cause you're the storm that I've been needing
And all this peace has been deceiving
I need some wind to get me sailing
So it's the storm that believe in

You fill my heart, you keep me breathing
'Cause you're the storm that I believe in

And if you want me, I'm your country
