The Daughter of the King

When I went back to the hospital the second time because of the air pocket behind my rib cage, I didn't get a lot of sleep that night.  I really liked the nurse that I had, and I remember asking her a lot of questions about her life. She wanted me to call my husband and ask him to drive back in to be with me, but I decided to let him sleep. I kept repeating out loud "I'm the daughter of the King, I'm the daughter of the King."  And, then I would remind myself that I am the one He loves. As I think back on it, maybe my nurse wanted me to call my husband because she didn't know what to do with my constant daughter of the King repeat.
I know for me, I felt like I was in a battle, and it was time to speak truth out loud. I was alone in a dark room, but God was there. My body was weak, but my position had not changed. I was still His daughter and still the one He loves and adores. I was feeling very weak, but God was very strong, and through His strength He gave me grace to make it through.
I've been thinking about grace a lot. God in His wondrous amazing love, gives me grace. I don't have to do anything to get it. He just gives it to me because He loves me. This is why the Bible is called GOOD NEWS. Because God sent His Son to die for me while I was still a sinner, and because of His amazing grace, He saved me. HE SAVED ME. I can't do it. I'm too weak. But, because I am the one He loves, He wants to rescue me, He wants to save me, He wants to fight for me, because I am the Daughter of the KING. And, because I am the one He love, He will never leave me, He will never forsake me. Because I am His Daughter, He wants to be with me, He wants to listen to me, He wants to walk beside me, and He wants to sustain me all of my life! This is GOOD NEWS!
It almost my birthday again, I will be 51 years old. My year of being 50 was not my best, most of it was spent in pain. But, the rewards from that pain have been immeasurable. I have prayed for healing in my life in several areas, and because of this pain, God has brought a lot of healing. He has shown me new ways to minister to others as well, and I feel so blessed to learn this. If God had taken the pain away quickly, I would not have had the opportunity to learn some of the life lessons that I have learned, nor would I have benefited from God's amazing grace in the ways that I have. He has a plan and a purpose for all things, learning to trust Him with that plan is the biggest challenge.
Jesus, I am going to continue to Say That Again, I am The Daughter of the King, the one that You Love!
