Admit You Have a Dragon



“Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms. Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”

‭‭James‬ ‭5:13-16‬ ‭NKJV‬‬



Jack Kent wrote a children’s book called There’s No Such Thing as a Dragon. The story is about a little boy named Billy Bixbee, who was surprised one morning when he woke up to discover a nice little dragon in his room.


When he told his mother, she said, “There’s no such thing as a dragon!” Soon the dragon was downstairs, even sitting on the kitchen table. But Billy’s mother ignored it—everyone ignored it. Soon it was so large that when a truck drove by, the dragon chased it down the road, carrying the Bixbee house on his back.


What if my dragon is already out of control? What if it has been growing for years and is a full-blown monster with three heads and a zip code of its own?


For Billy Bixbee the key was admitting there was a dragon. Each time he acknowledged the dragon’s existence, it got smaller and smaller. Put simply, this is the principle of admitting you have a problem. Even secular psychologists and twelve-step programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous require people who want help to admit they have a problem. Unless you become honest about your problems, there will never be a solution.
