(Happy Word-Filled-Wednesday!)Close your eyes for a moment. Breathe in the realization that YOU are a priceless princess adopted into the Kingdom of God. You’re not a princess who brags about what she has, but a Princess who boasts about what she gets for all eternity!
Did you know there is no one like you? Not even one thumb print matches yours. Out of all the billions of people on the planet, God knows you specifically and intimately.
God’s numbered all the hairs on your head—Oh yes, even the ones that fell out in the shower this morning (see Luke 12:7). He pays close attention to you, right down to the last detail. You, sweet girl, are a princess carrying her Father’s purpose across her heart. You’re a daddy’s girl. You’re a girl worth dying for. You’re everything to God. His banner of love covers you (see Song of Solomon 2:4).
God doesn’t see us the way others do. He isn’t like everybody else. He doesn’t show partiality (see Job 34:19). Even though we may think he doesn’t understand, He does. Even though we may feel He isn’t there, He is.
Just because one person says we aren’t princess material, doesn’t mean God agrees.
Sometimes I need to be reminded of something very important. There is no amount of sin God can’t forgive, no amount of back-turning God can’t restore, and no amount of heartbreak God can’t mend.
YOU sweet sister are SPECIAL, UNIQUE, and PRICELESS to God. Accept it. Believe it. Live it.
