I have been working really hard on putting the past behind me, letting go of all the heartache I’ve gone through and all the mistakes I’ve made. I always make myself feel guilty about how things turned out. Not good results, oh no, it’s much too hard to give myself some praise, and oh. so. easy. to be hard on myself when I’ve fallen or come short of the ideas of what I think I should be. I’m learning that I am okay and I am good enough to accept my mistakes because mistakes are what made me who I am. I was telling much of this to my friend and below is what she wrote back to me and I LOVE it!!
We need to see ourselves as that regal princess, traveling in that regal coach… Head held high…. And as the horses prance, we feel the joy of life… But when those horses come to the mud puddle… We don’t stomp about and complain…
We need to keep being that regal princess, same beautiful composure, just lift the skirt, and take one step at a time to extricate ourselves from the mud.
Keep taking the steps you’re walking, keep choosing to walk in Torah in your personal walk, in your family’s walk, in your community walk, in your public walk. They are all pictures of love.. All Princess footsteps. Then we get the ultimate glass slippers!!
Ephesians 6:10-18 says,
For the rest, my brothers, be strong in the Master and in the mightiness of His strength. Put on the complete armor of Elohim, for you to have power to stand against the schemes of the devil.
Because we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against authorities, against the world-rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual matters of wickedness in the heavenlies. Because of this, take up the complete Armor of Elohim, so that you have power to withstand in the wicked day and having done all to stand.
Stand, then, having girded your waist with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having fitted your feet with the preparation of the Good News of peace; above all, having taken up the shield of belief with which you shall have power to quench all the burning arrows of the wicked one.
Take also the helmet of deliverance, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of Elohim, praying at all times, with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, watching in all perseverance and supplication for all the set- apart ones; also for me, that a word might be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to be bold in making known the secret of the Good News, for which I am an envoy in chains, that in it I might speak boldly, as I should speak.
