I’m sentimental. I love weddings.
I didn’t get up in the wee hours of the morning to watch the royal wedding live, but I’ve been following it on the news today.
I cried. I have to admit. It was beautiful. I imagined being a princess myself.
Kate Middleton, the new Duchess of Cambridge was stunning.
Oh how I pray for her and William in our age of tabloids, twitter and web tv where their every move will be scrutinized. Oh Lord, be with them.
My favorite part of the wedding ceremony was the sermon by the Bishop of London. I’m going to read it over and again and it will probably produce a few posts on my blog. Much wisdom in that sermon for each of us.
What struck me most about this whole affair is that I know we desire to feel like a princess or prince.
Often our life circumstances cause blows to our self esteem and by the time we are young adults, that reality of a royal life seems so far off. We no longer see it as a possibility.
Events like this royal wedding allow us to dream.
But we must never forget that we ARE royalty. We are preparing for the Royal Wedding when Christ comes back for his precious Bride.
We, the people of God, are that precious Bride.
Oh please never forget how God looks at you as a Royal.
God calls you out of darkness and into His wonderful light.
The Bible reminds us in this Scripture:
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy. 1 Peter 2:9-10 NKJV
God Bless your ROYAL Heart
