I recently listened to, The Horse And His Boy, by C.S. Lewis. Numerous times on his journey to Narnia from an outer land, the boy encounters a fierce lion that seemingly tries to kill him. At one point him and his friends trying to escape a band of men bent on enslaving them ride hard for many days and finally relax a bit just miles from safety. Out of nowhere, the lion once again appears and seemingly tries to devour them. In fear for their life they ride harder than ever. Remember Who You Are Lion King shirt now available.

At one point the lion leaps and scratches the back of his friend. Seeing this the boy turns around and jumps off his horse to fend off the beast, and it actually works. Not long later the boy is separated from his friends and is left alone cold and scared in the mountains. Feeling sorry for himself he starts talking out loud to himself about his bad luck. It’s then a fierce voice bellows from the woods and asks him why his luck is so bad. The boy explains his situation and tops it off with his four experiences with the lion. It’s then that the voice thunders saying, “I was the lion who forced you to join with Aravis. I was the cat who comforted you among the houses of the dead.
I was the lion who drove the jackals from you while you slept. I was the lion who gave the horses the new strength of fear for the last mill so that you should reach King Lune in time. And I was the lion you do not remember who pushed the boat in which you lay, a child near death, so that it came to shore where a man sat, wakeful at midnight, to receive you.” Remember Who You Are Lion King shirt. There is no tragedy that touches our life that God is not there. He orchestrates things in our lives that we may never understand this side of eternity, but understand this, He has a purpose, and He loves you fiercely.
