Try to feel afraid--can't happen

“This is absolutely crazy,” said Eustace to Edmund.

“Isn’t it wonderful?” said Lucy.

“Have you noticed one can’t feel afraid, even if one wants to? Try it.”

“By Jove, neither one can,” said Eustace after he had tried.
The Last Battle
In the closing chapter, C. S Lewis paints the “real” Narnia as so much more than the shadowlands Narnia, just as the real heaven, without physical encumbrances, is so much better than our shadowlands earth.

And impossible to feel fear? I love that thought about heaven. We will be in the constant, overwhelming presence of pure agape Love, which will abolish even all thoughts of fear.

“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.”
~ 1 John 4:18

Just the thought of no fear is a taste of heaven to me. I got another taste of heaven yesterday...because my surgery required fasting, Jeff chose to fast, too. The Lord knows how to reach us with His love in the most unique ways—I was touched.
