You Are A Princess

A princess, that is truly what we are, daughters of the King who have been set apart for His glory. We have all been put here for such a time as this, to influence, encourage and set the example. Think about it for a moment, a princess is always in the spotlight and everyone is watching, waiting to see what her response will be. What she does reflects back on her Father, her King. We do not realize that when others look at us they are really seeing God in us.

What kind of example are we setting? Is what we are doing going to honor Him? We are called to be different and to stand out, this is a time for fourteen princesses to learn these lessons and ask such questions. As well as becoming equipped and trained for future challenges and battles. In all the fairy tales you hear of the wicked schemes and plots against the kingdom. And that is where these “Princess Lessons” come in handy. In knowing the truth, we are able to see these dangers more clearly and stop them before they cause destruction in the kingdom.

Identifying these problems is the first step then we must take them before our King because we know that in our own strength we can do nothing. With His armies, He battles then on our behalf because He loves us and we are His most prized possession. He is seeking our love and that is all He asks in return for everything He does. It is our choice then, what are we going to do with the love that we have been given? Are we going to spend our time kissing frogs and wishing for Prince Charming?

Remember whose you are and do all that you can for Him where He has placed you. Use the abilities that He has blessed you with and build up His kingdom. Realize the position that you have been placed in and do not wish for the things that can hurt you. Your life is a fairy tale and you will have a happily ever after when you learn to be content where He has you and in His love.

Lauren Bell shared this song with us that she wrote and I think it is a perfect example of our happily ever after:
Happily Ever After
Some little girls play dress up from the time they learn to walk,
Describing their own fairy tales from the time they learn to talk.
We don’t need to teach them; it just happens naturally
Across all times and cultures, the longings there you see.

Our fairy tales are echoes of truths that are divine;
Of humble girls, of wicked schemes, of rescues just in time.
These shadows paint a picture that points us to the One
Fighting for His dearly loved ‘til the unseen battle’s won.

One day when we are working and praying for our rescue,
The trump will sound, the sky will part, our Prince ride into view.
With power, grace, and glory, He’ll claim His princess bride
And ride off in the sunset to the land of no more night.

For once upon a time, God loved them and happily ever after started then
Before the founding of the world, His kingdom had no end
The roles were set, His only Son would be the noble prince,
And He would woo and win His bride to share eternal bliss.

It is your choice; will you live for your King? What will your happily ever after be? You are a Princess and your life is a fairy tale, are you making the most of the time that you have now?
