Hi Shannon -

I came over after I saw the comment you left on SarahMae's site about my Prince Charming post. Thanks so much for your question. It really got me thinking about Princess movies and the related instinct we see in little girls to want to grow up to be one. I think that comes from deep in our nature and resonates with who we are in Christ. But before I could write out my response, I saw a much more beautiful and profound one offered by another commenter.

Since I know that I don't often circle back to sites to see if someone left me a follow up comment, I wasn't sure if you would either. And this one is just too good to miss.

So, here it is. I hope it speaks to you. It sure did to me.


Here's what I copied over for you:

Shannon, I just wanted to share a little in regards to your comment about Disney princesses. I think one of the reasons we want so much to be a princess, is because deep inside we are really looking forward to the day we will meet our True Prince, Jesus. I’ve recently been studying Esther in a Beth Moore study at my church. In the areas Xerxes falls short as Esther’s king, the Lord powerfully and overwhelming fills that void. There are multiple references throughout scripture of how we are a “royal priesthood, a holy nation”(I Peter 2:9-10). Revelation 1:6 says, “(He) has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever..” Sister, we do have royalty in our blood, through Christ…and we just need to point our favor in the right direction. Wouldn’t it be sweet to see your daughter’s devotion to Prince Charming someday be turned towards her devotion to King Jesus?
