When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

A false enchantment

"A false enchantment 
can all too easily last a lifetime".  
W. H. Auden

The world is full of false enchantments.  Just take a moment and look around at all the men and women trying to be something or someone that they are not.  The magazines are full of pictures that are photoshopped and choreographed.  The movies are full of actresses and actors pretending to be people that they are not.
Many of us try and follow the crowd in one way or the other.  It seems as if there are many that just want to be like everybody else.  But our Heavenly Father made each one of us unique.  We are in His image, after His likeness.  We are His people.
There are people that we can reach and things that only we can do.  We can't all be like everyone else.  The Lord needs us to be who He made us to be.  Satan knows we are divine.  He knows that we are Children of God.  Satan wants us to act as if we are not divin so that we become something or someone that we should not be. He wants us to turn toward "everybody else" and turn away from our Savior.  he wants us to feel unworthy and unable to be a son or daughter of God.
So, are you going to believe in the false enchantments of the world, or are you going to believe in the One who truly knows you and loves you anyway.  It is your choice, your deciding moment, your destiny.  None of us can change our past decisions, but any of us can start right now and change our future.  His atonement is for you.  It is for me.  He knows you, He knows your name, He knows your trials, He knows your possibilities.
Who are you going to stand for in the end?
