Imagine being clothed with a robe of righteousness, personally designed by God. Crowned with honor and dignity. Called Princess by God. Looked upon with value and worth.. Walking in your inheritance.
11 Let the king be enthralled by your beauty; honor him, for he is your lord.
12 The city of Tyre will come with a gift, people of wealth will seek your favor.
13 All glorious is the princess within her chamber; her gown is interwoven with gold.
14 In embroidered garments she is led to the king; her virgin companions follow her-- those brought to be with her.
15 Led in with joy and gladness, they enter the palace of the king.
Many times we lose our identity and self worth. I often see young women give themselves away just to feel empty again. I don't know how many times I repeated that cycle in the hopes of filling the void of hurt, rejection and loneliness. I never realized my worth because I was broken.
Then one day, my perception changed. When God gave me back my identity I realized my worth. It was a journey but God never gave up on me, even when I gave up on myself. Confirmation after confirmation, God told me who I was and what I was worth. I was more than a one night stand. I was more than a cheap dinner. I was more than getting my nails and hair done or getting my bills paid. That all came at a cost and I was losing. I was worth dying for!
Once I realized and accepted my worth I was able to accept his unconditional love. I didn't have to do anything but receive it. It was new to me and I admit, a little scary at first. But once I began to allow him to heal me from the inside, I didn't want this false love I knew my whole life. I wanted more of HIM. It was different. It was real. I no longer wanted to be moved by sweet words of a man. I wanted to be moved by the love of God.
Now, I walk in dignity. I know my daddy God and I know he loves me.
