Queen in Gold
At the very core of every girl’s heart is the desire to be fought for and pursued. This is the very reason little girls dream about being princesses. Apart from being able to twirl around in a beautiful dress, princesses are beautiful, worthy and adored. This is acknowledged by a prince who is willing to fight a fire-breathing dragon, in order to rescue her on his white horse. And how could any fairytale be complete without the lovely young couple living happily ever after?
Many women have given up on this dream along the way. Most of us have met a decent man and hoped he’d make a good prince, only to watch him run at the first sign of the dragon. Some of us have attempted to slay the dragon ourselves, in order to make the quest for our hearts a little bit more presentable. Some of us have settled for less than the prince we hoped for. Most of us have compromised the dream.
Most of us sing along to the lyrics of the Taylor Swift song:
“I'm not a princess, this ain't a fairy tale
I'm not the one you'll sweep off her feet, lead her up the stairwell
This ain't Hollywood, this is a small town,
I was a dreamer before you went and let me down.
Now it's too late for you and your white horse to come around.”
But this article is supposed to defend fairy-tales, isn’t it? In case you’ve wondered I’m not attempting to agree with Hollywood’s idea of love. I would however like to expose how they’ve captured something of the feminine heart and what it means for a young woman who can’t seem to find her prince charming.
I’ve always been a bit naive about romantic love. Probably because I believe God has a great husband in store for me, I’ve always managed to get over heart breaks by reassuring myself that he was still somewhere out there.
So after experiencing one such a heart break I took a look at myself in the mirror, red-faced and teary eyed I tried to convince myself “Someday some guy is going to fight for you.”
Then the unexpected happened.
I sensed Jesus saying “I already have.”
I wasn’t immediately content with His reply. I didn’t feel we were even referring to the same thing.
He was talking about my true worth. The King of kings has given His life to win my heart. This implied that whether or not some guy chose to fight for me or not, I was and still am worthy of being fought for.
Why should you believe in fairy-tales?
Because it is actually based on the TRUTH!
You have been fought for! Jesus has slain the dragon in order to win your heart! You are the beautiful, worthy and adored princess you’ve always dreamt about being, and you get to have the happily ever after with the most perfect Prince!
