1 Peter 3:3-4

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewellery or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. - 1 Peter 3:3,4

Daughters of the King

Do you ever feel like you are insignificant or unloved? Like you can't do things right or things aren't going the way you had hoped? Girls and women all around the world struggle with these feelings at least once in their lives, if not more. Females are more open to emotions and can often think things are more difficult than they actually are.

But we shouldn't be feeling this way because it shows where our faith fails, where we fall short of God's plan for us, where we trust Him the least. God didn't send His only son to die one of the most horrible deaths for us to feel sorry for ourselves. One of my favourite sayings is "Don't doubt in the dark what you knew in the light". If we trusted our lives to God and knew He had a plan for us then why would we ever doubt? When we are in messy situations that's when we tend to take our focus off the Solution and onto the problem before us. It's an easy trap to fall into.

When these trials, problems and feelings come along, remember to whom you belong. Your Father and King wouldn't forsake you in the times when you struggle and need Him the most. He says in the Bible that He will never leave nor forsake you! Why would He start now. Turn your eyes upon Jesus and look full in His wonderful name. When you feel unloved, unimportant or insecure remember that you have the Kings of kings and Lord of lords holding your hand every step of the way. He never lets go, so we need to make sure we hold on.

"I know Who goes before me, I know Who stands behind. The God of angel armies is always by my side."
