Dear Son, Words of Wisdom #20

Dear Son, Remember who you are.

“Rewind it please,” you requested.
So I pushed the rewind button on the VCR. The whirling sound began as The Lion King videotape circled back to the beginning. You must have watched it 1,375 times, and I joined you on many of the viewings.

One scene always got me.

Simba lost his way in life. He turned his back on his family and destiny…all because of a lie. He settled for something less because he forgot who he was and what he was created to be.

Rafiki to the rescue. Rafiki reminds Simba who he is. Rafiki returns Simba to himself beyond the lies and guilt to the powerful words of his father Mufasa, “Remember who you are.”

There will be times in life you will fall.
      Remember who you are.
There will be times you will succeed.
      Remember who you are.
You will face distraction, distortion and destruction.
      Remember who you are.
You will be tempted.
      Remember who you are.
You will be cheered and jeered.
      Remember who you are.
You will want to give up.
      Remember who you are.

“You are God’s masterpiece. He created you in Christ Jesus, so you can do the good things He planned for you long ago.” Ephesians 2:10
“And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” Philippians 1:6
