Because I’m a Princess

Soul Detox

Part 16

The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. (Romans 8:16-17 NIV)

PrincessMy four-year-old granddaughter Sydney loves to pretend she’s a princess as do most little girls. Occasionally, Sydney puts on the full attire—long flowing gown, plastic tiara, and scepter—to aid in her playacting. But most of the time, she prances around the house, wearing her regular clothes and the tiara, of course. However, even without the crown, she has no problems spouting out orders that end with, “because I’m a princess.”

Recently, I’ve been pondering the phrase “because I’m a princess.” I am, you know. And you are royalty too, if you’re a follower of Christ, according to the above verse. Wow! That means we have benefits and privileges that others don’t have. Read More

See you in a twinkling,

  1. Love the thoughts you’ve brought out here! We do indeed have lots of benefits as a “child of the king”. 🙂 Now, I can think of myself as a humble “Princess” waiting to see my Heavenly mansion and the streets of gold. I have certainly benefited and have seen the blessings of my Heavenly Father every day.

  2. Learning more and more every day that I am His love, his princess, his girl.

  3. Thank you for this Princess series!! Ever since I watched a movie about a girl who learns she is a princess in a foreign land and needs to learn the ways of a princess, and ultimately must choose if she will pursue her inheritance & the responsibility that goes with it, the Lord has opened my eyes to how our time on Earth is a similar journey. Along the way, we will make many blunders, but if we are receptive to His lessons, we will become equipped for the Kingdom He is preparing us for! Admittedly, I have not been actively engaging in my lessons lately! Thank you for the reminder & encouragement!!
