“I am a princess. All girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics. Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren’t pretty, or smart, or young. They’re still princesses. All of us. Didn’t your father ever tell you that? Didn’t he?”
-Sarah Crewe in A Little Princess
Every little girl at one point in time wonders what it would be like to be a princess. We all did it– dress up, tea parties, plastic tiaras, and a towel on the head to be your fancy long locks… ok maybe that last one was only me 🙂
Little girls are not taught to want to be a princess– its just part of who we are. We have a desire to not only live a life of gumdrops and purple ponies, but also to have a voice that influences a Kingdom, to be important, to be loved, and to rule.
These desires are put in us simply because that is exactly what we were created for. God is the King of Kings and His greatest desire is for us to accept the relationship with him as our FATHER. If He is King– that would make ALL of his daughters PRINCESSES in his Kingdom. He gives us authority to say to the mountain, “Move!” and it’ll move. He gives us free reign to talk to him about anything and everything. He has given us influence… made us important…. beautiful beyond measure… The King’s chosen and beloved Daughter…PRINCESS.
