Do you watch Disney movies? My children have always loved them.
At 21 and 19 they still enjoy watching them. My daughter is partial to the princess movies, with Cinderella being her all time favorite. She has watched all of the princess movies, read all of the princess books and dressed up like them, even when she didn’t have the official costumes.
When she was eight years old we took a family trip to Disney. They kids were beyond excited to ride the rides and see the shows, but the thing she was most excited about was meeting the princesses.
We stood in a long line to do so. As we crept closer to the front of the line her excitement mounted. When we were next in line I asked her if she was excited and her reply was precious,
Mommy, I’ve been waiting for this moment my whole life.”
The Disney princesses have become the rage again, if they ever ceased being so. Many of my daughter’s friends have secured jobs and even started companies dressing up as Disney princesses and presiding over birthday parties. The more popular princesses of the day are Anna and Elsa from the movie, Frozen. Personally, my favorite character of that movie is Olaf, but what do I know?
What is it with the obsession over princesses with little girls? I personally believe it is because God created girls to be daughters of the King. He never forces us into a relationship with Him, but He offers it to us for the taking. When we accept His offer, we become His children, therefore, royalty.
John 1:12 says,
Yet to all who received Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God–“
As females our desire to be a princess is part of our DNA. So, my question for you today is, have you received your tiara? Have you said yes to the invitation? If not, it’s not too late. His desire is that none should perish [John 3:16]. Girl, He’s got a tiara with your name on it; why not receive Him and in turn, your tiara?
HI Susan, I love this post and I, too, believe that being a “beloved princess” is part of our DNA. I am so thankful that I know Him and He loves me so much…His mercies and grace for me are new every single morning. WOW!
