I’ve started reading again John Bunyan’s classic Pilgrim’s Progress and loving it.
Over the past 18 months there have been times I have had to battle what I call ‘night terrors’ – when my mind is assaulted by strange thoughts and slight feelings of panic when dropping off to sleep. It struck me recently that these mind battles might be similar to some of the trials Pilgrim encountered as he made his way to the Celestial City. I am now more than half way through the book and find the battles amazingly similar. It also amazes me how contemporary are some of the issues Bunyan confronts.
If the enemy of our souls is playing mind games with anyone reading this blog I would recommend Pilgrim’s Progress as an encouraging book to read. It reinforces and helps apply the Scriptures to the tough times.
