The word “princess” means a lot to me. It means treasured and precious. I 100% wanted to be a princess when I was younger (and sometimes I still do). Anyways, when I started walking with God, I struggled to find my identity in Him. It took a while, but now I see that I am His daughter. He is King and I am a daughter of the living King. So technically I’m a princess! (Yasss)
Anyways, yesterday I got a pack of fun-size Snickers. A friend and I ate a few and I had two left over, which I put on my desk. These Snickers bars had words on the side, like “irritable” or “annoying” or something else. I don’t really pay attention to them, though, because it’s a candy bar wrapper. Not a big deal. But today, as I was taking some notes for a class, I glanced at the remaining two bars and noticed what they said. One said “Irritable”. Okay, not important. But the other said “Princess”.
I know that this isn’t a one of a kind wrapper, but it hit me because it’s what I imagine God’s name for me is: Princess. It might not be a big deal for most people, but it does for me. And that’s the cool thing because we have our own unique walk with God. It’s not a one-size-fits-all kind of thing. It’s intimate. There are words, symbols, themes, and other elements that might be reoccurring in our walk with Him. I think I found one. Princess. I am His. His precious and beloved daughter. That’s who I am. I love it. And I love Him. And I love Snickers (and Twix), so I’m a happy princess.
“For God is the King of all the earth; sing to him a psalm of praise.”
“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.”
“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!”
