Queen Elizabeth

Mom has always called me "Queen Elizabeth".
I'm not sure why.
I just want what I want and when I want it.
Is that too much to ask for? :)

Seriously, I've always known I was royalty.
Several years ago when I was a youth sponsor in Hillsboro, my theme one year for my small group of high school girls was: We are princesses. We discussed the meaning of our Christian royalty, what this means on earth, how to conduct ourselves, etc...
In addition, one of my favorite stories in the Bible is Esther. I've always loved it. When I was a little girl, we had a cassette tape of the story of Esther in our car, and we'd listen to it often. The story has always intrigued me, so when our church announced that the women's ministry would be doing the Beth Moore study on Esther, I signed up immediately. Beth Moore and Esther - who could resist? On page 40 of our study book, Beth writes, "Those of us who know Jesus personally live under divine rule where all us girls get to be princesses." See, I KNEW IT! I am Princess Elizabeth. Only MY KING is THE KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS! The exciting news is that if you believe that Jesus died on the cross for your sins, you, too, are royalty. Our King wore a crown of thorns on earth, but He rose again. Our citizenship isn't here on earth; it is in Heaven where OUR GOD REIGNS!
