Once Upon A Time...

by Kylie

I enjoyed listening to this devotion, thank you SO much for sharing your heart with us Livy!

Comparing the book of John to a fairytale was genius, pure genius. That was one of my favorite things of the whole entire devotion.
"As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God." - John 1:12&13-
So good, so good!

I was brought almost to tears when you talked about how over the past few years you have felt like Cinderella pre-transformation. Girl, I so have been there and I know from experience it's not fun. It makes you feel like you are stuck, like you are going no where, like you are ugly, like you are just not good enough. Like all you can be is fake, fake, and more fake so that no one else sees what ashes your life is and not ashes as in life is horrid, but ashes in that you just don't feel like you are the young woman you need to be. I know that feeling and with the help of the Lord and lots of determination to let Him change me daily into a woman after His heart I've been brought out of it, as well.

Thank you for sharing your heart and letting us see who you were and who the Lord is making you to be, for the young woman you are becoming is truly gorgeous inside and out. The vision you have for Crown of Beauty is amazing, I know that God is going to make something out of all of this bigger than you could have ever dreamed up on your own. Thank you, thank you, thank you for letting us come on this journey with you! It truly is a privilege, it truly is. :)

I feel the same way. I'd never EVER looked at those verses from John that way before, but it totally fits. I love it!

And I relate exactly to both of y'all's descriptions of Cinderella's pre-transformation ashes. This is a healing time for me to realize that we're each not the only ones who've gone through that kind of life - and glory hallelujah that He loved us in spite of the ashes, and took us out to make us His princesses! So grateful for my fellow sisters in Christ!

For Such a Time As This...

You are SO welcome. It is my honor to share with all of you, and my prayer that you each get something valuable out of it!

Ahh, I know. John 1 is such an amazing chapter. I almost wish I could have hired a British dude with a narrator-style voice to read that verse for this lesson, hahaha, just because it should be spoken with such regal reverence. ;)

His transforming power is amazing. So much better than any fairy god-mother's bibbity bobbity boo. He redeemed us with His blood so that He could transform us into His gorgeous princesses...not leave us in ashes! Hallelujah!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I'm truly thankful that God brought me all of you and I know you're right...what He is doing goes so far beyond what we can see. Crown of Beauty isn't about me, it isn't about you, and it's not even about us joining together...it's about Jesus being glorified, bringing the reality of heaven to earth, and God performing His promise to cover the earth with the knowledge of the glory of Him!
We can be so confident in our destiny as a ministry because it's tied directly to Jesus destiny...He is to be forever glorified, and we will forever worship Him! <3
