What it means to be a Princess of THE KING

I've spent a lot of time thinking about my blog. About what it is and what I want it to be, and if this is something God wants me to do. For the past several days I've had a strong desire to have a series of posts about something that is on my heart.

A friend of mine, Mindy, talked about calling herself a princess. At first I thought it was just cute and because she is in a household of four guys, but the more I thought about and let it sit on my heart the more I began to wonder if there wasn't something more to it. I came to this simple conclusion, if God is my KING and I am a child of his, doesn't that make me a Princess? Can it be as simple as that? Can I just call myself a Princess? Am I worthy of being such a person?

Like most women my age, I grew up adoring Diana, Princess of Wales. I wanted to be her. I wanted to grow up and marry my own prince and live in a castle with nothing to do all day, but sit around and be waited upon. I did find my prince, but my bubble of a princess has been burst by the many princess movies that have been made.

You can't compare a movie princess or one in real life, to one that is a Princess of THE KING, but there are some similarities. I'm going to take a couple of weeks to talk about these things. I'm sure I will learn a lot along the way and maybe you will as well. I am hoping that through this journey I will become a true Princess of THE KING, and that others who are in doubt of themselves like me will become a true Princess as well.

Since this is my introduction to this topic, I will start blogging about my first topic tomorrow.  If you have ideas, suggestions, questions, or comments, please don't hesitate to make them. Everything you share is a bit of wisdom that others need to hear to help them on their journey to become a Princess of THE KING.

Until tomorrow,
Give life to those you meet,


  1. Oh how I love this! I am very excited to see what God reveals to you and through you in the days to come. There is nothing I enjoy more than seeing someone get revelation of who they are, for in that place is true rest, peace and joy unspeakable! My calling myself a princess had nothing to do with being the only female among my males. It was all about grasping my identity in the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! It was never about being spoiled or waited on, or even honored (though my guys bless me in these ways). Nope, it was about having my eyes open to the fact that NOTHING I could do could earn anything. I had to believe...in Him and what He said about what He sacrificed to give me and make me. I had to understand finally that I am a princess not because of what I was capable or incapable of, but only because of Who my Daddy is. :) When I got hold of that truth, I was indeed set free. I no longer live for popular opinion. I AM WHO THE I AM SAYS I AM. It doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. I know my flaws, faults, shortcomings, and sins, but when God looks at me, He sees Jesus in my place! That is grace and I have embraced it in full. I can come boldly before Him without fear and be received for even WHILE I WAS YET A SINNER, Christ CHOSE to die for me. I have been adopted into a royal family. I have been made a king and priest unto God simply by the Blood of Jesus. THAT alone is the only thing that makes me worthy to be called Daughter of the King. To not receive that gift is prideful. To walk in shame as anything less than that is insulting. The price has been fully paid for my inheritance. I didn't deserve it, but by faith I receive it.

  2. Knowing you as I do now, Mindy, I would never think of you that way. I'm just slow to understand things at times. I think it has to percolate in my head and on my heart before I fully understand it. It was another reason it has taken me so long to decide to write these posts.

  3. Oh I didn't take offense in any way at all. That is what most people assume I mean and that is fine because it's sweet too, but I LOVE to share what God walked me through and how He revealed His gift to me :) It is such a blessing to witness women getting hold of their true identity!!! So glad God is taking you on this journey. That has been a prayer of mine: that you would see who you really are and be able to throw off all that hinders your heart! Love ya pal
