Happy Thanksgiving everybody…well, belated thanksgiving! It was an awesome time with family and friends. I’m super grateful for all that God is doing in my life. There is so much to be thankful for.
I was feeling a little low on the day before Thanksgiving but as opposed to my usual pity parties, I decided to cheer myself up and make myself feel like a princess (I’m still a kid at heart). So I borrowed a tiara from a friend of mine, and wore it all through the day on Thanksgiving.
Some people called me Princess Teddy (insert happy dance and a royal curtsy); other people asked me what it meant. Generally, people’s reactions and questions brightened my day. I really had fun with it except for one problem; I constantly had to have my head held high. I couldn’t have my head hanging down lest the crown falls off my head. I even had to sit a certain way, my posture had to change, I felt like Mia from “The Princess Diaries” when she was learning how to act like the royalty she is.
I learnt something though. As children of God, we are royalty so technically we have crowns on our heads. So whenever we hang our heads in shame, fear, guilt, defeat, condemnation or any other thing, our crowns fall off. In order to maintain the crown, our heads should be held high, not in a prideful manner but in a way that shows your identity.
You are a daughter/ son of a King, called to bring people out of darkness into His marvelous light. So arise children of God, straighten your crowns and own your identity.
For anyone who has taken off their crown, please pick it up and dust it off. You matter, you are valued, and you are priceless to Him. Even if you have been trampled on, you have not lost your value, your identity as royalty does not change.
I honour you.
