Your past is just a story. Once you realize this, it has no power over you.

I stood a mendicant of God before His royal throne

And begged him for one priceless gift, which I could call my own.

I took the gift from out His hand, but as I would depart

I cried, "But Lord this is a thorn and it has pierced my heart.

This is a strange, a hurtful gift, which Thou hast given me."

He said, "My child, I give good gifts and gave My best to thee."

I took it home and though at first the cruel thorn hurt sore,

As long years passed I learned at last to love it more and more.

I learned He never gives a thorn without this added grace,

He takes the thorn to pin aside the veil which hides His face.

My identity, worth, value has nothing to do with my strength or ability to win. It has nothing to do with me at all. It has everything to do with the finished work of Jesus for me. Jesus plus nothing really is everything. http://ow.ly/vrGzn

I passed three little girls playing in the church isle, and I stopped to listen:
[Girl 1] "I'm Elsa"
[Girl 2] "If you're Elsa, then I'm Anna".
[Girl 3] "Who can I be???"
[Girls 1 & 2] "You're Olaf."
