Not That Kind of Fairy Tale - Song/Video



I love fairy tales.  I love the way they seem so magical, the way good wins, the way everything works out in the end.

Life - our life - is different.  I often wish that our life had more elements of a fairy tale in it.


and yet...
"Three times I pleaded," Paul said. (2 Cor. 12:8-10)

Even when I don't get to make three wishes, even when what I want is not granted, but denied over and over...

Even when I'm suffering instead of enjoying the happy ending...

And even when I find that I am not the good, kind, all-things-lovely-heroine that I thought I was, that I had so hoped to be...

There is grace for me. (2 Cor. 12:9)

Things do happen by "three's" in our story.
Just not...granted wishes.

Our "three's" are terrible, tragic, but stunningly beautiful.

(Jonah 1:17)
(Matt. 4:3-11)
(Mark 10:34)
(Mark 14:32-41)
(John 13:38)
(John 18:15-18, 25-27)
(John 21:15-19)
(Luke 24:7)
(2 Cor. 12:8-10)

Sometimes I think I would rather have the wishes granted.

And yet...there is a wild, lonely beauty in our story, in this grace You have given us...

in this our fairy tale - where the prince really does come to seek his bride - but he has to die to save her from the dragon.
