Today, you’re not going to let circumstances, people’s opinions, or your past determine what you think, how you feel, or who you are. You are who God says you are, and he’s inviting you to grow in your identity as you talk with him, and become as joyful, confident, and full of peace as he is.
“Then Aslan turned to them and said: ‘You do not yet look so happy as I mean you to be.’ ”
–C. S. Lewis, “The Last Battle”
