Last month our church hosted a Ties and Tiaras event for fathers and daughters. My son-in-law got down on one knee and asked his daughter (my granddaughter), who is 3 years old, to be his date. She was so excited to be going on a date with her daddy.
The day arrived and her mother did her hair in curls, dressed her in her princess dress and put make-up on her. She was so beautiful and she beamed. Her daddy put on his dress pants, white shirt and his wedding tie. Just before they left, he put a small strand of pearls around her neck as a gift. What a handsome couple they made. They had a wonderful time eating together and dancing the night away like Cinderella.
During the evening, each little girl received a charm of a princess tiara with a card attached to it. It said:
“You are created in the image of God. He has amazing plans for your life. His love is unconditional. I am here tonight to remind you that you are a princess in His eyes. Others will let you down but God will never let you down. Please accept this charm as a reminder of His unconditional love for you.”
Psalm 139:13-14 – For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made…
I love this scripture. We are created in God’s image and God didn’t make a mistake when He made us. He loves us unconditionally and that will not change. We are all princesses in His eyes. Daughters of God Most High!
I John 3:1 – See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!…
Romans 8:17 – Now if we are children, then we are heirs – heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ…
My prayer is that each woman that reads this post will stop to remember who we are in Christ. God didn’t make a mistake when He made you. You are beautiful, wonderful and worthy of the love that He has for you. You are a princess, too!
It’s time to get out your tiara, dust and polish it, then place it on your head proudly. You are a daughter of the King.
