'Straighten my Crown'
“On my darkest days when I feel inadequate, unloved, and unworthy, I remember whose daughter I am and straighten my crown.” – author unknown
I’m sure you’ve seen the above quote as you’ve scrolled through your Facebook or Instagram feed. Perhaps you’ve read it, heart-smiled at the inspirational tone of the message and planned a purchase of a beautiful daily reminder for your home. Listen, I’m ALL for a perfectly placed piece of fabulous font! But, sisters, have you really studied the message within the message? My hope is that the empowering truth tucked within the quote by this unknown author could comfort you with a sense of security, love and self-worth when you’re hard-pressed to recognize it.
”But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God's very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light.” ~1 Peter 2:9 (emphasis mine.)
This divinely-gifted life with which we have been entrusted is a series of ups and downs, with moments of triumphs and moments of despair. And, oh man, can it be a real nail biter, this “life work”. But, thankfully, we were not placed in this world without power or value. God, the protective and devoted Father that He is, has lovingly placed a crown upon our heads, adorning us with a reminder of our worth to the Kingdom and our inheritance to His throne.
As mothers, daughters and sisters it can, at times, seem almost impossible to not buckle under the weight of the world that has been placed on our very capable shoulders. Responsibilities, relationships, worries and woes will knock that holy crown askew but we are only to faithfully remember that He has equipped us with Grace and a Divine Power to handle it. All. Of. It.
Straighten that crown, Daughters of Christ, and with eyes and hearts on your Father in Heaven take a step forward, out of the darkness, and into the light of the day.
