As Daughters of the King Most High

After picking up my teen daughter from a Christian camp, we got to hear all about the week’s adventures. In one such adventure, one of the girl campers wrote a mean spirited note intending to hurt another girl camper, and posted the note on the door of the girl’s room, for all to see on Wednesday, the next morning.

In reaction to this, my daughter and her roommates decided to return a hateful act with a loving act. Since they didn’t know who wrote the mean spirited note, they went to work writing loving notes to all the female campers, posting them on the doors of all the rooms. After getting permission from their leaders, they stayed up until 1:30 A.M. hand writing these precious notes and posting them on all the doors. Each note included a bible verse, and was about half a page long. Ephesians 4:2-3 was in their hearts as they truly were “bearing with one another in love, making every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.”

King of KingsNot the Work of my Daughter

Many of these loving notes specifically reminded the camper that, as a daughter of the Most High King, she was a princess, dearly loved. But this was not the work of my daughter and her roommates. Though she is very sweet and kind hearted, all she did was listen and obey, for this good deed was sprung from the Spirit of Christ at work within them.

To back up that statement, please note I was on my knees daily for my daughter while away at camp. And I believe it was on Wednesday when I prayed very specifically, and very fervently, that she would find her identity in Christ, asking God to show her in a personal way that, as a daughter of the King of kings, SHE is a princess, dearly loved by her Heavenly Father.

1 Little Prayer + Jesus = Uncountable Blessings

What joy I had when I heard how He creatively answered that prayer. And I prayed only for my daughter, however, as Christ multiplied the little boy’s simple offering of loaves and fishes, He decided to multiply that simple prayer to include ALL of the girls at camp that week. Isn’t He wonderful? “God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honor and might forever. Amen.” 1 Tim 6:15-16

So, what do you think?
