Well, I've actually found two reasons to consider myself a Lion of God. First of all, my surname translates to "Lion Valley" (Valley of the Lions) which seems pertinent. Second of all, C.S. Lewis imagining Jesus as a Lion has helped me connect personally with a metaphor that has potency in my own life. Therefore, I consider myself in the same metaphor of the Lion. Strong, for certain. But, that strength ultimately comes from my creator and King, our God.
As time allows, I intend on focusing my attention on becoming one of God's warriors. A Lion warrior, if you will. It won't be easy sometimes. But, easy is not the point. Unshakable faith is. Something I still need lots of work on.
