I am writing to God’s church, to the women who call themselves Christians in a modern world: singles, mothers, grandmothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, nieces, widows, engaged, divorced, separated. To the women who work outside the home, the women who are caring for family members inside the home, the women who are deployed and protecting their countries, military wives, the women who are in college, and the women disabled or battling illness.
Are you walking in your identity as a woman beloved, treasured, valued, and forgiven by the blood of Christ? Do you wake up each morning and praise the air you breathe, knowing it was created by God Himself? When you sleep at night are you tucked under a blanket of confidence, security, hope and peace? These promises belong to every Daughter of the King!
If you asked me this same question before my transformation I’d be hiding under a sackcloth of shame, afraid to look another Christian eye to eye and be judged for my mistakes. My sin identified me as a woman who abandoned unconditional love. I was walking in the valley of the lost- a prodigal who had forgotten her Father’s love. I was miserable inside, polished and pretty on the outside with the emptiness of a lost child.
When I realized my identity was a lost prodigal away from the love that created me, I had an urgent desire to know Jesus. I realized I wore labels not designed by God: shame, unworthy, hopeless, unforgiven, unattractive, unloved. As I questioned “who told me that” the door started opening and I revived the faith inside my heart.
