Challenge Week 2: Memorize 1 John 3:16 “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us.” This week try to view Jesus as your Prince Charming. How does that change how you view your time with Him? Remember back when you first started dating your husband. Remember how excited you were each time you saw him. How you treasured each moment together. Remember how you would read and re-read the letters he wrote to you. Try and approach your time with Jesus this week with the same kind of excitement and enthusiasm.
I recently went to Disney World with my husband and two daughters who are 3 and 4. My girls are at the age where they love Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, so of course our Disney trip focused around the princess characters. As little girls, we dream of our Prince Charming. Who is he? Where does he live? What is he like? We love to watch movies like Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty where the princes either save the princesses from a bad home environment or a terrible situation. Isn’t that what we still expect out of our Prince Charmings? We expect them to save us and make our life perfect so we can “live happily ever after.”
While we were on our trip I began thinking I really should start teaching my girls that Jesus is really the one and only Prince Charming. Jesus has all the characteristics of a Prince Charming. He is:
But Jesus is way better than any Prince Charming!
He is always there for you, every time you need Him.
He is always listening
He is always loving
He is self-sacrificing- He sacrificed it all for you……His life for yours!
We should teach our girls to fall in love with the real Prince Charming, the only one who sacrificed it all for them and for us…..laying down His life for theirs and ours!
Do you view Him as your real Prince Charming? Do you realize that HE truly is the one and only one who “completes you?” Do you realize that He longs to spend time with you each and everyday? One way you can do that is by being in His Word. Allow Him to make all your dreams come true by submitting your life and your will to His. He is good, He is loving and He is trustworthy. Make Him your Prince Charming today!
Love God Greatly!
