In the movie Forrest Gump, Lieutenant Dan is almost killed in battle and loses his legs. Forrest Gump saves his life, but he becomes dely depressed.
One night in the hospital, Lieu. Dan snapped at Gump for saving his life because he thought he should have died on the battlefield.
Dan shouted that he was not Lieu. Dan anymore because he lost his legs and his dignity. Gump in his usual answer said to him, “You’re still Lieutenant Dan.”
Just because you’re legs might have been cut off, wounds have come your way, or life has taken you out, you’re still who God made you.
Your circumstances don’t define who you are.
Your situation doesn’t define who you are.
God defines who you are.
You’re still Lieutenant Dan.
