Have you seen the movie called A Little Princess?
If not, then you should make a bowl of popcorn, grab a blanket and hit play! If you have seen it, you may remember the quote from Sarah, the little princess, who under her dire circumstances, boldly and confidently declares, “I am a princess. All girls are!” This little girl, Sarah, was left as an orphan after her father supposedly died in a war. She was unliked by her caregivers at a school for girls and was forced to live in a dingy attic without adequate care. Still, throughout all of the hate and hurt caused by those caring for her and even some girls at the school, nothing broke her spirit. She had a deep and secure truth that her father had always told her...she was a princess. Sarah confidently and boldly believed that she was indeed a princess. Some of her beliefs encouraged other girls at the school, and they too, slowly yet boldly started to believe that they were also princesses. But some of the girls, because they were hurt from their past, refused to believe that they were also a princess. But through Sarah’s love and encouragement, almost all of the girls came to believe that they actually were indeed princesses.
While this story is a fairytale, there is still so much truth to tale. I love Sarah’s deep seeded truth that she was, without a doubt, a princess….royalty. Her belief was so strong, that nothing, even the most dire circumstances, had the ability to shake her belief.
The reason why this story is so loved by many little girls and women alike is that there is a connection. The truth is, all girls are princesses. This is why we are called a Daughter of the King. Even if your past was hard, even if your present is exhausting and even if you think your future looks hopeless, it still does not change the fact that you are still, indeed a King’s Daughter.
The King of the World! King of Kings and the Lord of Lords!
The Creator of the Universe…..calls YOU his Princess....His Daughter.
You are fearfully and wonderfully made. You are here on purpose. A daughter of the King. A King who lived through dire circumstances by choice, who was never broken and conquered the grave, is YOUR father. You are a cherished member of God’s royal family.
