“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisioned by the enemy, don't we consider it his duty to escape?. . .If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as we can!”  J R R Tolkien

At times we all feel trapped in life in situations that are not our favorite.  It is hard to maintain the freedom of mind and soul if you bog down in the misery inside your head. Your escape is inside of you... and for me that is the Lord.  If I can get myself focused on Him and surrender to Him all of my anxiety and fears, He immediately comforts me and I realize I am not alone. 

 "If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.” Genesis 4:7
