~His Princess

I love this book! If it were mine, I would have been underlining tons of stuff in it. (But its not. :( I’m borrowing it from my aunt.) I’ve been reading a page a day and I‘m almost done with it.

If you can, please click on the picture and read it.

 This page really spoke to me when I read it. God says he loves what he created, and He delights in ME! For a long time I really did struggle with not being good enough. I was terrified to try anything new for fear I wouldn‘t measure up. But my dad was able to show me lies of Satan I was believing, and how to get rid of them. He told me that anytime I was feeling down on myself, I needed to rebuke Satan and command Him to leave. Daddy couldn’t do it for me. I would say that was necessarily the easy part. The harder part was identifying all the lies and turning away from them. I found I had to be in a state of continually processing what I thought or believed and compare it to God’s word. To be able to realize the lies you are believing you need to know the truth, God's word.
   Do you know that if you don’t think you’re beautiful just the way God made you, you are believing a lie of Satan? It says in Ecclesiastes 3:11- “He hath made everything beautiful in His time.” If you think you were made wrong you are believing a lie? “I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” (Psalm 139:14) God loves you just the way you are-physically. Spiritually, we always have something we need to be working on. You are His priceless princess with a purpose! Don’t know what your purpose is? Seek him and He will show you His plans for your life. They are better than you could ever imagine!


  1. Thanks for posting this Heather :) I was encouraged by it! I know wayyyy to often I worry about the way I look but God made me just the way he wanted and I should let him be my mirrow! That sounds like A really neat book I'll havta check if my sisters have it :-)

  2. Aw, well, Heather, feel free to mark in it if you really want to! I don't think I'll be too offended. ;) It'll help you remember where things are and then I'll be able to see what was special to you. :) I think I was trying to keep it in its original pristine condition (which I won't be able to do!) but you know, a marked up book is way more special. So mark away!

    Thanks for this really encouraging post. Guess my muddled brain needed a wake-up call today. I especially appreciated the reminder to constantly process what I'm thinking (consciously or unconsciously!) and compare it to God's Truth.

    Thanks again,
    Your Aunt

    P.S. Nice photos!
