Daughter of the King!

I was thinking as I was driving down the road today praying for a friend who needs to know how much Jesus loves her. Has she ever felt love enough on this earth to really identify what true love is? Even her own Mother, her husbands twisted way of showing her what love is, no earthly dad,  I would question it. So when I tell her time and time again, all of the time, “Jesus loves you!” I wonder how much of that sinks in, really….when she strives to feel the love of Jesus does she even understand the depth of what that really means even a little bit? She tells me that I am the only one ever in her life that has showed her unconditional love. Yet I tell her all the time, “and Jesus loves you a thousand times over better than I could ever love you!”She believes me and I still always am inclined (I feel) by the Holy Spirit to often and all the time to tell her how much Jesus loves her. This, I have never felt the need to say to someone as much as I do her. I know Jesus wants me to be a messenger on this one.

I was thinking today, I, my friend, and any of us girls who know Jesus are a DAUGHTER OF THE KING OF KINGS! Yes, I already knew this but when you think about my role in this I think this is quite a responsibility but more than that an HONOR to be called the daughter of the KING! So I question myself today:

Do I love Him more than anything else?

Am I honoring my King by keeping real close to him. Talking to him, reading His book, going to Him in my time of need?

Do I bring others along with myself to His throne enough?

Do I serve others less fortunate than myself enough?

Do I conduct myself as a princess who belongs to a KING?

Am I meek yet speak strongly when need be?

Do I use the giftings that He granted to me enough?

Am I worthy to be in His presence?

Do I listen to Him?

Do I act on His loving nudge?

Do I worship him with my song and dance enough?

Am I thankful enough for what He did for me?

Do I look at each day and go before my KING and praise Him no matter what?

Do I hold myself up as if I am a daughter to the KING?

Am I confident in who I am in HIM?

I could go on and on….but today, I am a child, a daughter of the KING, what a privilege, what a joy! I worship the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Glory to His name, He is worth of all praise.

Courtney - Hi Marlece – I think it is wonderful that you are listening to God’s “nudge” and being the messenger of love to your friend. What a powerful example for the rest of us. It is not always easy to listen to that nudge, or act on it, so thank you for giving us an example of how to do it. Understanding how much Jesus loves us is such a hard concept. It is really impossible to grasp; so we do need to hear it over and over again – from others and from being immersed in His word and a close daily walk. This post inspires me to do just that 🙂

Cooking Up Faith - Beautiful Marlece! May this scripture bring you comfort –

As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:10-11

When you share His love and word, it achieves the purpose for which He sent it! Keep serving Him and bringing Him glory!! 🙂
