“A princess today Katie?” Jari chuckled as she swept by me on the way to her office. “Always a Princess Jari” I answered confidently. Jari’s comment veered towards the fact gem-stones that lined my head. The headband seemed like an appropriate choice. I knew who my Father was; best of all, He knew me. He had known about me since my birth and walked with me through the trials. Although I had rejected His grace horribly; although I had looked to idols to fill my void soul He stayed faithful to His daughter. He was still my Father. He had stood there waiting, with tears in His eyes, for His princess to come home. After much pain and heart-ache I had turned form the garbage. It took all that to realize how much I needed Him. I had gone so far as to almost kill myself through an eating disorder. When I reached the point of near death I realized I was in need of an oxygen tank. As all else failed He revitalized me; He was my lifeline. He still is. I cling to Him every day. His grace, faithfulness, love, joy, peace, patience, is just as abounding as it was when I felt I needed it most.
Through the experience I lacked self worth.
I now realize how beautiful a princess can be when she is aware of her worth to the King. How beautiful she is, the woman who acknowledges she has been created to emanate the Kings splendour! This can ONLY happen as she presses into Him daily and allows Him to fill her soul with his warmth. She will only be a blessing to others as she allows His joy, grace, peace, love, truth, never-ending love, passion and compassion to fill her heart. His compassion is beautiful.
Prayer: Father, may we never forget the gift of Your grace. May we understand in depth this gift You have lavished on us. May we become more like You. Thank you that You are faithful to never stop loving us. As we understand the identity You have given us assist us in realizing and remembering: We won’t lose our identity as compassionate daughters of the King. Thank you Father.
